Buck 65 Contest – Win an Autographed Copy of ‘Situation’

Posted in contest at 9:40 pm by rgsc

Looking for that perfect gift for the audiophile in your life? Well, I might just be able to you help you out. With only a few short days until Xmas we’re featuring a pretty rad contest. We have, for one lucky individual, an autographed copy of Buck 65‘s new album “Situation“, courtesy of Warner Music Canada.

This is something of a return to hiphop form for Buck65 (and it is refreshingly unlike any other hiphop I am familiar with, although I admit I am not expert in the genre). With relentless flow of gritty rhymes, Buck65 is never rushed in delivering his lyrics: he methodically lets his stories unfold. And let me tell you, there are stories. Ably backed by Skratch Bastid, Buck 65 provides an detailed examination of the year 1957 – its preoccupations, its highs and its underside that is often overlooked in our rose-tinted impressions of the ’50s – the Golden Age of Rock n’ Roll & radio, cars with fins, poets, pin ups & pornography, baseball, and street fights.

Here’s a sample:

Way Back When (stream)

Be sure to check out his myspace and his website for a few more tracks.

Want it? Sure you do. For a chance to win just send an email to gimmestuff.bootlog@gmail.com with “Buck 65 contest”, or something similar, in the subject line. I will choose a winner at random. Contest closes at noon (EST) on Tuesday, December 18th.

If you are not the chosen one be sure to pick up a copy of the album through MapleMusic (Canada), Strange Famous (USA), or WarnerUK (Britain).
