Pre-Order: The Mom’s Basement Activity Pack – CRC Polo, Zine and Pause Tape

20130910_165300

A mere three years since I first discussed doing some Unkut.com t-shirts, and the first Mom’s Basement Activity Pack is finally complete. This is a limited-edition pack of only 100 editions, being offered for pre-order for the next two weeks only, with your pack being shipped the week beginning 7 October, 2013.

This glorious package contains the following essential items:

1. The official Conservative Rap Coalition embroided polo, made from TrueDry mesh [160gsm, 60% Cotton, 40% Polyester], available in the classic set of “stormy” colors.

2. Mom’s Basement Pause Tape, Volume One – a 60-minute cassette tape featuring promos, skits and exclusives from my personal collection of recordings from Kool DJ Red Alert and DJ Chuck Chillout Kiss-FM shows, plus some extra stuff stolen from the internets.

3. A 32-page b&w zine called Executive Class, Volume One, featuring classic comment section wars, removed content and exclusives from the Unkut archives.

4. A personal letter of thanks from myself for supporting the CRC cause and possibly helping me escape from the basement for another month before the end of the year.

Now is your chance to stand-up and be counted as a CRC trooper, and reject the folly of “streetwear” with this official tissue, pioneering advance in Rap Blog fashion. All of this can be yours for only $65, and will not be sold separately or reprinted.

A week to go until I hit New York again, so Mom axed me to clear out some of my crap out of the Basement. Records, CD’s and even a tape are on Discogs if you want to buy stuff and junk.

The Conservative Rap Coalition Membership Drive, Round 2

aroyalpalmcc12

As KRS-One once said: “We’re not done…we’re not done”. After Paypal tried to hate on the Conservative Rap Coalition movement by freezing our account on the grounds that we’re not a “registered charity”, I had to flip the script on the whole operation. Never fear valued members, everything is back on track and we are well on the way to hitting our target in terms of new recruits. If you’ve been a long time reader of the site, it’s time to pony up before I start posting pictures of Kanye and Kim shopping for baby leather kilts.

The 2013 Conservative Rap Coalition Fundraiser

Ever since I returned to Mom’s Basement seven months ago, I’ve been concentrating on delivering a new interview every week and going all out to provide a voice to the rappers, DJ’s and producers that the rest of the world has forgotten about, plus talk a little shit along the way. The time has come, however, for me to leave the basement for a minute and return to the streets of New York IRL (In Real Life) to hunt down some leads and shoot some video.

That means that it’s time for all of you Conservative Rap Coalition members reach deep into your Carhartt pockets and contribute to the cause. I’m been able to get my plane ticket money together after picking-up an extra paper route, but that’s not going to cover my Metro Card’s money, hot dogs, Swedish Fish or 40 Oz’s of Ballentine beer. Your hard-earned dollars will be put towards funding one or more of the following projects:
