Hello and welcome to the second installment of The Billion Bonus Jam Bonanza (Local Edition). There has been so much great rap music coming out of the Twin Cities these last couple months that it’s been hard to keep it all straight. I’m gonna attempt to highlight as many joints as I can remember below. Before we get into it though, I gotta start out with the crew real quick. Last week MTV2 and mtvU premiered the Doomtree video for “Beacon” (click the top banner above to check it out), and this week SPIN dropped the behind the scenes making of video. Click the picutre below to get a little more insight into how it all went down.
OK, enough self promotion. Let The Billion Bonus Jam Bonanza begin!!!

Alright, there you have it: The Billion Bonus Jam Bonanza (Local Edition). As always, if I forgot anyone that just means there is too much good music to keep track of (and there’s always future Bonus Jam posts ahead of us). I’ll leave you with a couple more Bonus Baby Pics for those of you that have been asking about Penelope. She is doing better every single day. Yesterday they took her IV out, and today she moves from the incubator to the bassinet. Hopefully we’ll be able to take her home within the next week if everything keeps going well. Fingers crossed!
Love that little sweet pea. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Looking forward to seeing a ton of you out at Rock The Garden this Saturday in Minneapolis!
