The Rebels are back. Don’t say they didn’t give you anything for the holidays….
@game_rebellion @neticrebel New music from Brooklyn’s own Game Rebellion. Like “Blind”–which was used on last summer’s mixtape, The Getaway–“Blood” is from their EP Sounds Like A Riot. The video does a great job of capturing the hip hop/punk/rock energy of their live shows. Speaking of which: If you have a chance to catch them live, […]
