Misfit Soto – “Lost Angel” (Album Review)

On his latest project “Lost Angel“, SKM member rapper Misfit Soto reflects on his Los Angeles raised battle scars and expressing his consistent growth in the West Coast underground Hip Hop scene.  Known for his incredible producer skills and working with dozens of artist from all spectrums of Hip Hop, he is really putting out a brand driven by complete ambition and consistency.  The LA underground Hip Hop scene is super over-saturated, but for Misfit Soto, he has been able to completely pivot a...

As jets take charge of fire-bombing missions, the 62-year-old piston-powered Tanker 60 takes its last flight over Oregon

California Braces For More Fire Danger From Fierce Winds; PG&E Restores Power To 156k Customers

Henny Holyfield – “Clocked In” (Album Review)

Henny Holyfield is the Sacramento rapper who isn’t waiting for “his time”. He is “Clocked in” and ready to carry the city on his back, by any means necessary. Henny dropped his latest project in July of this year and I recently took the time to sit down and listen to his 12 track body of work which features fellow Kali Boy, Dirk Dig. Along with Penny, Alize Ali, Nathan Giguiere, Classik Mussik, Vonnie and E.M.A. But before we get into this, I need to give this man and his design team props for ...

Why San Francisco felt like the set of a sci-fi flick

On Sept. 9, many West Coast residents looked out their windows and witnessed a post-apocalyptic landscape: silhouetted cars, buildings and people bathed in an overpowering orange light that looked like a jacked-up sunset.The scientific explanation for what people were seeing was pretty straightforward. On a clear day, the sky owes its blue color to smaller atmospheric particles scattering the relatively short wavelengths of blue light waves from the sun. An atmosphere filled with larger particle...

56. Pan Am in Vietnam

Crystal Cox/Business Insider During the Vietnam War, Pan Am flew troops in and out of an active war zone on rest and recuperation trips. The flight attendants on those planes didn't get any special training or preparation to deal with some of the horrors they would witness, and when the war was over, they didn't receive recognition from the U.S. government. But their role left a lasting impact, even if their contributions were largely forgotten. Listen on: Apple Podcasts  |  Stitcher  |...
