Fan Ran of The Pyrex Palace



Yo what it is, what it do?! So yo check it…I’ve been grindin’ like crazy recently and so here is what’s happening…

Sinister Circus is my 2nd album (follow up to Torch Lit Passages) and it’s basically finished! All that’s left to do is mixing/mastering, and album artwork. The production is crazy on this project…got heavy hitters like Scolaro, Dr. Data, Octopus Drummer, and Fan Ran providin’ the soundscape for it, so stay tuned and keep ya ear to the street for this joint.

Wicked OCD EP is a mixtape kind of deal and it’s pretty much done as well. Production for this project was mainly handled by Fan Ran and Octopus Drummer and as a whole this offering is made up of dark/vicious rhymes. Just lettin’ people know I still spit venom like a cobra when need be. It’s all about BALANCE people.

Aloof Insider is my 3rd album (follow up to Sinister Circus and completes the trilogy, the Torch Lit Passages led me to the Sinister Circus which made me an Aloof Insider) and is off to a solid start. Already have a good handful of tracks recorded for this project and so far I believe it is truly my finest work to date.

But, with all that 411 outta the way, now let us get to the man…Fan Ran. Look if you love hip hop and are an MC lookin for beats, yo do yaself a favor and hit the link and peep Fan Ran’s catalog of DOPE. The man is killin the game right now with his signature ‘Crate Trap’ steez, givin hip hop heads the neck snappin head nod anthems they love to rock to. Support the real and yaself at the same damn time and invest in a Pyrex Palace heat rock from Fan Ran.

And in the meantime, check out the video below and get a brief glimpse into the world of a master of the MPC. Chyea!

Hip hop at it’s finest ladies and gentlemen.

AICP Show 2012

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the AICP Show 2012 at Richmond’s landmark Byrd Theater. Go ahead and click on the link to get details of what it’s all about…basically they take the best advertisements throughout the course of the year and select them to be stored in the Museum Of Modern Art (MOMA)…which is a slick way of cataloging humans styles and tastes…contemporary history! I was informed of the AICP Show yesterday while in my Curiousness advertising class at VCU. It was a crazy coincidence, because while I was on the way to campus with my homie Dr. Data he was telling me about some Japanese dude who collects items from pop culture and so I was like “that’s cool, dude over in Japan got that contemporary history on lock”…and then I go to class and the professors tell us about the AICP Show 2012 at the Byrd…free for students…yea, I’m in.

So Data and I went to that jenk and watched ads for over an hour and a half…I definitely kept track of all the joints I really enjoyed and so I’m gonna share them with all you cool people out there. Check it…

Threat On A Wire


Yo, what it is, what it do?!

Check out this lil freestyle I kicked over Action Bronson’s Bird On A Wire instrumental…oh, and here, I’ll let you read the rhymes too…


i fight the depression with this mic and aggression

i’m slightly impressive with the life that i’m blessed with

i tackled every obstacle while chuggin flasks of vodka juice

i bagged and smashed alotta boos and splashed alotta acid proof

i’m like magic when i pass the truth

but most cant handle half of dude

i personify a chronic high when i rock my rhymes

i laugh at you

bitches get it twisted like cinnamon sticks and knots

im givin it all i got 

i keep it wicked with every shot

i’m like an enigmatic word problem that never can be solved

just drop the dose of the words i flow and let ya mind get rocked

i’m flippin the script like a pimp on his shit

binders full of women

bill clinton a chick at my desk when i sit

she rides it wit her lips and

it drips when i spit she likes it like this

i provide her with elixir

crowned as a king with the styles that i bring

i’m the highness of this fixture
