What's up everyone? That's right "The Uncluded." You thought we only shot hip hop. No, we've got a lot more range than that. Even though Aesop is considered hip hop this collaboration is definitely "Rock."

We covered the Aesop concert a couple months back, and I said it before and I'll say it again that Aesop's brand of hip hop is not my brand, but he does have a loyal tribe so I really can't hate on his hustle.

Kimya Dawson however is a different story. I am most definitely a fan. I can't front and say that I'm old school, and I've been into her forever but I can say that ever since I saw the movie "Juno" I've been intoxicated by her art. She also has a very, very loyal tribe. I'm sure that some people can and do hate on her. She may not be the best singer or have the best voice, but I don't believe that's what her tribe needs from her. Her tribe is more interested in the gifts that she provides us with. To Kimya's credit I believe the root of her art is her humanity and her intent when giving these gifts.

Needless to say, the concert was fabulous. I can't wait to see Kimya on the next go round.....
