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 mo…

WATCH: Game Rebellion ft Ninjasonik — “GTFO”

Like many of you, we’re anxiously awaiting the full-length Game Rebellion album.  Their Sounds Like A Riot EP was cool. Joints like “Blind” and “Blood” were cool.  But, given how many great songs this band has, as well as how they absolutely kill it live, once we heard there was an album in the wings, we’re like, Bring that shit on!  But for now, we must wait. In the meantime, here’s some work the guys…

Kandia Crazy Horse on Game Rebellion


Props to rock critic par excellence Kandia Crazy Horse, who holds court in this week’s Village Voice on the one and only Game Rebellion.  They’re a band that was all over this blog’s Best of 2007 lists, and for good reason. Like Kandia, I first experienced them at last summer’s Restoration Rocks festival in Bed-Stuy.  [...]

VIDEO: Game Rebellion at the Brooklyn Museum

  @game_rebellion @amonfocus Got to take my son to this show. I figured that, as a 12-year-old hip hop fan, it was about time for him to experience the Rebels.   We stood down near stage left.  The energy, the musicianship, the crowd: My son was definitely transfixed.  And the highlight for him? “I pushed his leg up!” Apparently, he’d helped give Netic a boost into some body surfing. And good news: A new album is on the w…

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 [...]

Okay, so after that rave that I handed out for Game Rebellion, you might be wondering what they sound like.  Here’s one of my favorite tracks from their mixtape, Searching for Rick Rubin, a rework of the Geto Boys’ "My Mind Playing Tricks on Me".  Officially, Game Rebellion’s version is "Mind Playin Tricks" (J. Period [...]
