“Midwest” (Used 4 times)

I just found some awesome hip-hop by midwestern rapper Coolzey here on the FMA. WFMU's own Billy Jam has dropped quite a few Coolzey tracks on his excellent hip-hop show "Put the Needle on the Record," and even interviewed my new favorite Iowan rapper on the radio last week (archive here).
Check out Coolzey's 2007 EP "The He Did," a great listen through and through. Good humor, good beats. I'm a fan of "French Fries and Ice Cream," partially for the subject matter, and partially because it sounds like Coolzey rapped the whole song with a stuffed up nose.
The rapping Iowan heads to Texas and Wisconsin late Feb-late March, and I recommend checking out some of his music videos, from the low-fi "He Did" to the newer cut for "Look" (a song off of his new album, The Honey, released on Public School Records).
