Ex G-Sider does mean-mugging weed rap with friends

The third single from ST 2 Lettaz’s March album, The G…The Growth & Development (following “Trillmatic” and “The Crown”) is “Green Light District,” an ode to “weed and drink” fitted with an appropriately foggy video. Like the best impulses of ST’s former group G-Side, who broke up in September, it makes a lot out of a little. Set in one room, ST is surrounded by his friends, plus some evil college-dorm party atmosphere, thanks to plenty of smoke, frantic rays of light, and everybody turn-up-hands-ing to the squishy, trap-tinged Block Beattaz production. In between the weed shout-outs (and zingers about how wack your stuff is), ST jokes that he was rejected from the kind of colleges that now pay him to perform, and boasts about how full his Gmail inbox is at the moment. Also, the way he says “garbage” when he raps, “That shit you got is garbage” is really rewarding. It’s just more evidence, if you even needed it, that even after G-Side, ST remains charismatically down to earth. – VIA SPIN

Happenin Records presents the first ever HAPPENIN FEST on June 30, 2012! Close to ten bands will be performing inside (and outside) of Vertical House Records in Huntsville, Alabama from 5:00pm – 1:00am.

For a simple $8 cover, attendees will get to rock out and drink beer with us until we decide to close up shop. We’ll be debuting new cassettes, giving away free vinyl, and hooking certain people up with limited edition posters.

Kegs will be tapped, but you gotta be 21+ to fall down. All ages are welcome, though!

Help us set off our first Fest, and show your support for this amazing lineup:

– NATURAL CHILD

– Really Loud Hamburgers
– Nowhere Squares
– Walker Yancey and Furcoats
– Piss Shivers

Also… we’ll be cooking out all evening, so bring your grillin’ materials.

So, in summary, you get to see a crazy number of good bands (including NATURAL CHILD and TIGER HIGH), you get beer (if you’re of age), you might get some free records and cassettes, you get to hang out in a rad record store, and you can cook out. Seriously, why would you not come?
