    Get Lit: W.A.R.: The Unauthorized Biography of William Axl Rose, by Mick Wall

    Listen Up: K-Rino's "Holla at Me"

    Here's a new video from K-Rino. Great song and video. This guy is on a whole other level, and it's a shame he didn't get more shine in the big H-Town rap boom of 2005. Hell, after 20 years of steady, even expanding genius, I think they should put a s...
