Our correspondents are fucking ACES. Just had to put that out there. We desperately tried to make it out to Canal Room last night for a performance by Raekwon, backed by Truth & Soul Records' El Michaels Affair (who you may have read about somewhere), but got caught up in exhaustion from last minute grinding - magazines don't write themselves! Although we missed out on a great show, our people more than picked up the slack. More live pics from Adrianna and a blogsclusive IM wrapup from the one and only Pesky after the jump.
