The One With Happy Haircut

On this episode: Luke brings us some hot podcasting news, Brian and Luke talk about one of the best rap albums of the year, Loki the trickster tricks our hosts into an episode of Thor Talk, Brian wishes Chris Hemsworth a happy haircut, there’s a lot of talk about 7-11, Luke introduces a brand new segment and our hosts play you quite possibly the strongest set of eight songs in the history of the show.

Every week Ghettoblaster feature writers (and dear cousins!) Brian LaBenne and Luke LaBenne bring you fresh new songs with the hopes of introducing you to some that you may consider to be the best song ever.  Both Brian and Luke have no idea what songs the other has picked, so what you are hearing is their genuine reaction to listening to the songs together.  Also, if you enjoy this episode, head to ITunes to subscribe and rate our podcast with the highest rating available to you.

Joey Bada$$, a member of the burgeoning New York City-based rap crew Pro Era, is set to digitally release his song, “Waves“.   “Waves“- one of the most uplifting singles from his critically-acclaimed mixtape 1999– has had fans and music critics across the globe talking about the 17-year-old MC’s uncanny talent and meaningful subject matter.  Joey Bada$$ recently inked an innovative deal with Cinematic Music Group/Creative Control distributed by RED Distribution.

With a reworked version of the sample originally featured in the mixtape version of the song, this release offers existing fans a new look at the track while introducing Joey Bada$$ to a whole new audience. In addition, the special release will include “Enter The Void“, a brand new song from Joey produced by Lee Bannon with a feature from TDE’s Ab-Soul.

The singles can be bought together as a bonus for $1.29 per song or for $1.99 for both tracks (including the “Waves” video exclusively on iTunes)

Joey and Pro Era will be headlining New York’s Hot 97’s “Who’s Next” concert at SOB’s on November 20th  and are gearing up for their first European tour with already sold out shows in all cities including London and Paris. In the spirit of staying true to their fanbase, Pro Era will release their next free tape on December 21st
