Xemei started out seven years ago as an unlicensed bar and restaurant and has grown into one of Barcelona's most talked about spots. After falling for the city's nightlife, twin brothers Stephano and Max Colombo brought the taste of their hometown of Venice, Italy across the Mediterranean, taking advantage of Barcelona's lack of laid-back, high-end eateries. While their reputation has spread far enough to include Patti Smith and Sean Penn among clientele, Xemei is still, for the most part, free of tourists, a rare thing in Barcelona. Their polenta-stuffed baby squid, fresh burratta, and ever-expanding organic wine list makes it our favorite place in Barcelona to get drunk and forget about how underpaid we are.

Pinqy Ring, the Puerto Rican woman rapper from Chicago, releases her first music video upon her return to rap from teaching. After being laid off from her GED instructor position because the non profit organization closed, she realized it was time to put a concerted effort towards her dreams because that is what she taught her students to do. Directed by Matthew VanGronigen. Produced by Slot-A Featuring WGCI DJ and DMX turntable-ist DJ NonStop. The self-titled video aims to shine a light on Pinqy's impending rise to the top. A DJ Premier-esque track, NonStop scratches vocals from a Nas and Az song, as well as a Cam'ron song, and even includes a little Phife Dawg to embody and highlight both Non and Pinqy Ring's love for Hip Hop. By showing moving visuals of the hard work she puts into rap and the things she values most - Chicago, community, Puerto Rican nationalism, self-pride and her friends, Pinqy Ring shines... so act like y'all know!

Tourists on India's Andaman Islands are taken by the busload to watch the Jarawa tribe go about their daily lives. The Jarawa are treated like animals in a safari park, with large signs urging visitors not to feed them or give them clothing. Earlier this year, a crew from VICE Germany went to the Andaman Islands and brought back footage for this fascinating, if a bit depressing, documentary. Human Safari was produced with assistance from the non-profit Survival International. Learn more about supporting the campaign for the Jarawa here: http://www.survivalinternational.org/tribes/jarawa

For the second episode of our pretty much brand new food show, Matty Matheson's Hangover Cures, we took Matty out to Montreal to party with the rarely drunk, and incredibly talented, Antonio Park of Park Restaurant. Antonio is a Korean-Argentinian super genius who makes some of the best sushi we've ever had. Tasty sashimi and nigiri aside, however, Matty filled him full of so much alcohol he could barely stand up in the shower the next morning. Anyway, here's how it went when we woke up Matty and Antonio early the next day, and got them to make a spicy seafood kimchi soup.

The Showcase is back with a new episode featuring upcoming Rap artist Fresh. Most recently featured on Mally Mall's hit new single "Drop Bands On It" featuring Wiz Khalifa and Tyga, Fresh speaks on his humble beginnings in the music industry with Skee.TV. Fresh also details his story and talks being influenced by Tupac Shakur, pursuing Hip Hop after High School and eventually catching a break after meeting The Game through a mutual friend. However, Fresh explains after the former G-Unit rapper landed his deal with Aftermath, he eventually found himself back on the streets and regrouping for a new creative direction. Speaking candidly with cameras, Fresh also enlightens fans on what he's been busy working on over the last year as he's been in and out the studio with the likes of Kid Red, The Game and Wiz Khalifa. The rapper also touches on how his collaboration with Mally Mall came about, his growth as an artist and explains Wiz Khalifa has too many artists signed to Taylor Gang for him to ever consider jumping on the label.

In July of 2012, Tree watched Danny Brown perform at Chicago's Pitchfork Music Festival. Soon after, Tree predicted that he too would grace the Pitchfork stage and be counted amongst a group of talented musicians pushing Chicago music forward in 2013. Tree accomplished those goals through the release of his honest, genuine, and urgently grimy Sunday School projects, the most recent volume - When Church Lets Out - was released in May of 2013. The releases earned him critical acclaim, and a coveted performance slot at Pitchfork Fest 2013. This short documentary profiles the emcee and producer through archive footage from a year ago, and a candid weekend with Tree as he prepared for his big set. Directed by Andrew Zeiter

Another release from Scram Jones' upcoming EP, 'Dead Giveaway'.
Mike Brown is a tattoo artist who, if you know your history, always comes up when people talk about those who pioneered tattooing in the late 1970s. He worked at China Sea (formerly owned by Sailor Jerry), ground zero for traditional American tattoos, and at the birthplace for black grey penitentiary-style tattoos, Good Time Charlie's Tattoo Land. His life has had some ups and downs over the years, and they've made him a little hard to track down if you're looking to get a Mike Brown tattoo. But we had the chance to visit Honolulu in January and made sure to stop by the shop Mike works at to ask him about the old days. He still tattoos five days a week, and we'd wager that most people who see him have no idea about his pedigree. His portfolio alone is a history lesson in tattooing, with everything from the most beautiful Chola's, Pin Ups, mean ass biker skulls, and touristy sea turtle tats. Mike Brown still does it all, and does so with the most humble manner.

From 1988 Album: "Strictly Business" EPMD is an American hip hop group from Brentwood, New York. The group's name is a concatenation of the members' name "E" and "PMD" or an acronym for "Erick and Parrish Making Dollars" (later "Erick and Parrish Millennium Ducats"), referencing its members, emcees Erick Sermon and Parrish Smith ("PMD"). The group has been active for more than 20 years (1986present), and is one of the most prominent acts in East coast hip hop. Diamond J, DJ K La Boss, and DJ Scratch were DJs for the group. The word "business" is used in every title of the group's albums. Every album also has a track titled "Jane". EPMD's first album, Strictly Business, appeared in 1988, which featured the underground hit "Strictly Business," based on a sample of Eric Clapton's version of Bob Marley's "I Shot the Sheriff." Many critics cite this first album as the group's most influential. The group's brand of funk-fueled sample-heavy hip-hop proved to be a major force in the genre. Unlike old school hip hop, which was originally based on disco hits but eventually became more electronic, EPMD based its music mainly on lifting funk and rock breaks for samples and helped to popularize their usage, along with Marley Marl and Public Enemy. "You're a Customer" combined snippets of Steve Miller's "Fly Like an Eagle," Kool & the Gang's "Jungle Boogie," and the bass line from ZZ Tops "Cheap Sunglasses." "Jane," about a romantic rendezvous turned bad, would be revisited on no less than five sequels; a first for hip-hop, and, perhaps, rock and roll as well. "You Gots to Chill" used 1980s funk band Zapp's "More Bounce to the Ounce," which has become one of the most enduring sample sources for hip-hop. "I'm Housin'" was covered some 12 years later by Rage Against the Machine. Managed early on by Russell Simmons' RUSH Management, the group toured with such hip-hop luminaries as Run-DMC, Public Enemy, and DJ Jazzy Jeff & the Fresh Prince. Promotional EPMD t-shirt for their 1990 Business As Usual album EPMD signed with Fresh/Sleeping Bag Records, which eventually released its debut album, Strictly Business, by electro funk pioneer Kurtis Mantronik. Propelled by several strong singles ("You Gots to Chill" and the albums title track), the album was eventually certified gold, selling over 500,000 copies, as did 1989's follow-up, Unfinished Business. Financial frustrations followed when Sleeping Bag went under in 1992. The two EPMD albums and Nice & Smooths debut album were acquired by Priority/EMI Records before the label was sold to Warlock Records. The duos Sleeping Bag contract was acquired by Def Jam. EPMD returned in 1990 with Business As Usual and Business Never Personal two years later. By 1992, the group presided over an extended family dubbed the Hit Squad, which included Redman, K-Solo, Das EFX, Hurricane G, and Knucklehedz. In 1992, EPMD had a hit with its song "Crossover," which lamented rappers making blatant concessions to pop sensibilities in order to get mainstream attention from music audiences. Ironically, the song became a crossover hit itself peaking at #42 on the Billboard Hot 100 and in doing so becoming their biggest hit to date. The duo split in January 1993, under controversial circumstances. According to interviews in The Source and Rap Pages, in late 1991, Smith's house was burglarized by armed intruders. According to Smith, in the ensuing police investigation, one of the apprehended culprits supposedly gave up Sermon's name as having allegedly paid them to do it. Sermon was arrested and briefly detained for questioning, but no charges were filed. Still, it led to lingering tensions, and by the time of the break-up, Sermon alleged financial impropriety on Smith's part. The duo found itself as solo artists by default: Sermon debuted in 1993 with No Pressure, followed by Double or Nothing (1995), Def Squad Presents Erick Onasis (2000), Music (2001), and React (2002). Smith made his statements on 1994's Shade Business, followed by Business is Business in 1996. Extended & updated info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EPMD

California has turned out a long list of respected hip-hop artists and Raven Sorvino is getting ready to add her name to the top of the list. Born in Texas but residing in Los Angles Raven knew early on she wanted to be apart of the music scene but not until a bad break up did she really begin to take the idea much more seriously. "I probably wrote my first rhyme after this dude broke my heart, I wrote a rap about him. I played it for my brother, I rapped it for him and he was like man this is tight but you cant make all your songs about no dude. You got to go take these girls heads off and show them that I could rap!" With Raven fully immersed in her new found talent she wasted no time funneling her 9 to 5 wages into purchasing studio time and chasing her dream each day. She put time into learning the craft but it wasn't until she met Picasso of Language Artz who brought her into the fold providing not only a team but also direction and support for her first real project. "We had a situation on 2dopeboyz where Meka was dropping freestyles from each member in Language Arts each Friday. Picasso said I'm going to put you to the test, I'm going to send you a beat come over here record it and this will be your first intro to the blog sites. It just made such a big frenzy and people went crazy over it. Not long after we started the EP Inspired and that's when everything started moving for me. Raven Sorvino doesn't want to be put in the same category as any MC let alone male or female. She wants her music to be heard and her persona to be respected based of her talent alone. With a sound that is reminiscent of New York and Los Angeles Raven has the ability to reach audiences at a core level and she hopes it's her music solely that people judge her by. "That whole female thing, to get attention and respect. I try not to think about that because I feel like it will weigh me down. Don't even really call me a female rapper, just look at me like an artist and just listen to the music and enjoy the presentation I'm giving you. Get the whole she's a girl thing out your head." For her most recent project Queen of Hearts, Raven is ready to make her mark and she knows her time is now. "After coming off of Playa Del Rey the process and the growth for this new tape Queen of Hearts is the experience of coming to NYC going to SXSW, interacting with fans now my confidence level is really up there. Now I see people paying attention people now who I am. It's like ok all eyes are on you, what is she going to do right now. This is the moment where Raven Sorvino needs to break!" @RavenSorvino @blowhiphoptv Story: Khomari Flash Camera: Khomari Flash Isaac Aguirre
