Making the rounds at the BUST office this morning is this video by the Get 'Em Mamis, a kickass rap duo from Baltimore who deserve some space on your iPod. So stop everything and listen right now -- whatever you're doing can wait till after you've heard the Mamis. In case you've never heard of them before, here's a little tidbit they proudly display on their MySpace page: last year Rolling Stone ranked their song 'Cold Summer' higher than Lil ... Read More

ON, IT, AT?

Fun fact: Did you know that Melora once toured with Nirvana playing ... Read More
