VIDEO: Game Rebellion — “Rebel”

...@neticrebel @game_rebellion Is it ever a bad thing to have a new Game Rebellion video? I think not! Y’all know I’ve written a lot about this band: Good guys, all five of ’em, but I’d really hate to have to follow them on stage. They’re that good. But let’s not belabor the point. Here’s the new video for your enjoyment: Additional link: Game Rebellion on Facebook...

LISTENING POST: Game Rebellion — "Blood"

@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, do yourself a favor and go. But unless you want to be in the...

Kandia Crazy Horse on Game Rebellion

...he global state of affairs.  Quite frankly, I’m sure there are plenty of people out there that think folks in the ‘hood don’t care about politics or anything beyond booty, bling and getting paid.  Game Rebellion upends this whole notion  Like I said, they present complexity.  Glad to see that there are people out there who are steeped in hip hop who can do more than rep their blocks.  Not only, as...

WATCH: Game Rebellion ft Ninjasonik — “GTFO”

...that shit on! But for now, we must wait. In the meantime, here’s some work the guys did with Ninjasonik, and it showcases what’s most impressive about them: Their ability to be political and provocative without being didactic, as well as the ease with which they mix rock and hip hop. In this video, the kids, literally, rise up. Additional links: Game Rebellion official Ninjasonik official...

TOUR DATES: Game Rebellion + ATL stand up!

Game Rebellion's MC Netic tells me that their album will be out in a couple of months.  Very cool.  In the meantime, folks in a few cities will get to see what all of us in NYC have known for some time: Game Rebellion is the truth.

Netic of Game Rebellion If it were only about an MC or a guitarist, Game Rebellion wouldn't be special.  They'd be good, no doubt.  But thankfully, they are much more than the sum of their parts.  I've said this before, but they are clearly one of the best hip hop/rock bands out there.  With their energy and their incisive lyrics, they'd slay just about any other band.  I mean, really, I'd hate...
