Friday Feature: Album Review of kidDEAD's "Rap and Destroy"

With Record Store Day just on the horizon, here's an item worth hunting down this Saturday between Bully sets and taco breaks. #RAPCLUB stalwart kidDEAD released his debut album a few months ago, and it's an intense, quick-witted effort that demands a space in anyone's catalog.  While you might have missed his set last weekend at Tour de Fun, hang around the East Room long enough and you'll be sure to catch another.  For now, read the full review of "Rap and Destroy" HERE, and for kicks, watch this video for "Thieves" below.   -Terra James-Jura
