In August 2008, in a shared dorm room, on my first self-owned computer, I began to download hundreds of gigabits worth of worthwhile and worthless music. It was great until the Federal Government’s Copyrights Office sent my school a real nice ‘do something or we’ll do something’ letter. The album that was the last straw, the album that they caught me red handed with? Rick Ross’ Trilla. RICK ROSS TRILLA. [EDITOR’S NOTE: RICK ROSS’ TRILLA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!] The copyright infringement of Rick Ross, a former Corrections Officer, put me on a year-long probation.


But within the silver lining was a 19 year old kid forced to go deeper into the internet to find music which quickly led to finding FMLY and Get Off The Coast which quickly led to finding RUN DMT. And this morning I woke up to something I forgot I needed, RUN DMT (a.k.a. Salvia Plath) dropped the sequel to the 2009 small blog classic Bong Voyage and a Directors Cut of 2011’s DREAMS on Tuesday.

There are only four songs off Bong Voyage 2 streaming for free, but the whole album is only five bucks ($4 for DREAMS (Directors Cut)). Cop them like Ricky Ross used to.
