      Every rapper will claim they go hard. But Tech N9ne’s Independent Grind Tour brings together some of the hardest. Since his debut in 1999, Tech N9ne has built his reputation on uncompromised flows and hardcore content, appealing to fans of NY boom-bap, dirty south rap and even the Juggalos. Meanwhile, Indiana’s Freddie Gibbs (left) [...]

    Rodrigo y Gabriela

      This couple—in music and in life—have come a long way since their street-musician days in Dublin, Ireland. Rodrigo Sánchez and Gabriela Quintero are an internationally acclaimed duo now, but got their start as teenagers in local bands in Mexico City. (They bonded over their interest in thrash metal.) As young adults they moved to [...]
