What's the best thing about Framed? Is it our "overuse" of certain "punctuation?"

No!

It's that we always have our hand on the "pulse" of the "biz!" And are thus able to bring our readers, wonderful people all, fresh and exciting talent from all over the place.

Remember when we "broke" Justin Bieber? Those were the days! Well, this week, we're showcasing Notorious MSG, a group of Asian-American rappers from (where else?) Chinatown in NYC, who sing with great gusto about Asian food and gangsta-ism, both issues critically important to the "scene."

Their video is "Chinatown Hustler," a grab-bag of kung fu clichés and profound observations like: "Living in the ghetto/No fun." You're sure to call the whole family to the monitor to watch these guys - straight out of Canton, we're told - and their winning brand of underground rap.

Breaking news! Their first full-length LP, Heavy Ghetto, is due out in a couple of weeks!

"Later!"
