REASON & DIRTY HANK: The Monty Brogan EP.

After many, many months of teaser videos and years of drunken recording sessions, my once-upon-a-rhyme PDP partner Reason and my soon-to-be ex-neighbor-in-law (I just bought a box of hyphens, wholesale) Dirty Hank have unleashed The Monty Brogan EP for FREE.

If you’re unfamiliar with their dynamic, to frame it in a Poorly Drawn filter: its like the always-stellar Reason routine along with a smaller, squeakier version of me, if I was into serial rape and alcohol poisoning (as a verb). Oh Hank, you scamp.

PDP’s Falside & Rhode Island homie Mad Plaid do the beatings.

Share it with your friends. And your enemies.

Call it anti-recession rap: a couple of artists content with their discontent exploring the depths of their Johnny Walker Red-scented underemployment. It’s The Monty Brogan EP, and it’s the latest project from Providence-based indie rap stalwarts Reason and Dirty Hank. It also marks the first official collaboration between Reason (best known for his work with Poorly Drawn People and his solo albums, Landlords & Lullabies and Gemini Slang) and Dirty Hank (the man responsible for a run of stellar releases, including The Class Act Mixtape and The Guide To Giving Up EP).

The 9-track release, a free download available through Poorly Drawn Recordings, finds the dubious duo at their raunchiest, musing about breakups, alcohol dependency, and squatters’ rights. Production duties are handled by Falside (fresh off his collaboration with Juan Deuce, The Mechanics EP) and Mad Plaid, one of Rhode Island’s premier, up-and-coming beatmakers. Songs include lead single “Say Disease,” as well as “Not That Hip” and “Perfect Day To Die.”

The Monty Brogan EP is available through Bandcamp at the link above . For now, it’s a free download. But the safe bet is to grab it quickly, because Congress can only pass so many unemployment-benefit extensions and Brooklyn Lager isn’t getting any cheaper.



While I continue to produce nothing listenable fo’ dat azz, I’ll try to be better at bringing you the news on my compatriots who have achieved that elusive goal. It is 2012, after all, so I’ve only got so much time left to blog. I can handle it.



Say Disease! Falside did the beat for the new Dirty Hank + Reason song from “The Monty Brogan EP” Poorly Drawn Recordings is dropping FREE Digitally on Tuesday, February 7th 2011.


While supplies last, a “Mechanics” sticker and Digital Download Card will be included with each purchase, and each CD will be SIGNED by Juan Deuce and Falside! Limited Edition New Era “Mechanics” Snap-Backs also available!Click here to buy!


Here is Juan Deuce’s new video for “Krill Pill” directed by Nicolas Heller for Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys and produced by DJ Mekalek (of Time Machine).Juan Deuce – “Krill Pill” (Video)#FreeShabazz2:In February, Ricky Shabazz and the Boom Bap Boys will be releasing their second annual mixtape of exclusive tracks from some of your favorite underground hip-hop acts. This time around, the tape is sponsored by 2dopeboyz and will be released digitally and physically for free. Tracklist/Artwork/Release Date will be announced soon but in the meantime, enjoy the first of many videos we will be putting out leading up to the release.

Additionally, this marks the very first in “Ricky’s Wontime” series in conjunction with Three/21 Media. The idea of the series is to achieve a thought provoking and entertaining one-shot music video. There are no restrictions, as long as the entire thing has no cuts and lasts the entirety of the song.

Please watch, post, share, and enjoy.

…That’s it for today. I’ll try to bring you some more new old news in between having arguments with people about their objections to my continuing to rock an Ochocinco Patriots jersey and trying all the different blends of George Dickel. Paws.

Love you all,

Ess Dee.

…And where is the Storm Davis video, you ask? Or, perhaps, you don’t??

Either way the answer is: I don’t know. I DON’T KNOW.


Making Moves.

Literally. From that old site to this new one. We’d probably be done by now but we’ve had to spend a lot of time reviewing the last 4 Fast & Furious movies so that we’ll be able to follow the narrative of the new one. Shit is complex.

Be back real soon. Promise. Til then, Storm Davis is on Facebook and Twitter. Entirely too much.
