"Got a treat in this part we got friend of the show and indie MC Signif (@signif ) calling in to talk about her new album "Friction" (available on iTunes & bandcamp.com ) and her upcoming performances at this year’s A3C Festival…. Always great to talk her and she’s a true friend to the show (she’s been chilling with us since we started the internet show)…plus we got mad new hip hop music from far & near , tune in , download… enjoy….." Interview with Signif starts at the 56 minute mark.

Milwaukee artists will be at A3C rocking at Apache Cafe Oct. 11th 9pm-12am. eMC will be in the building so if you haven’t seen eMC rock live you’re missing out. Stop by, say hi and get your copy of my new album Friction.
Peace and Blessings

"It’s been two years since we got the fantastic Significant Wizdom II: Atypical from the Milwaukee-born, New York-based emcee Signif. With that release, Signif proved that she belonged in the discussion of the best emcees working today. With her latest effort, Friction, Signif shows that was no fluke."
