The January 1st edition of the Baltimore City Paper has my first Rap Sheet column of 2014, with news about E the poet-emcee and more, and my first Short List of 2014.

I wrote a feature in this week's Baltimore City Paper about Ellis's new album, The Education Of Ellis. Also wrote The Short List, as usual.

This week the Baltimore City Paper published its annual Top Ten issue, and I wrote a lot of stuff both that appears in it, both top ten lists and otherwise:
- A feature on Blaqstarr, my third and by far most in-depth interview to date with one of the true geniuses of Baltimore club music.
- My regular BPM column on dance music, with news about Murder Mark (now Mighty Mark) and others.
- The Short List of concerts in Baltimore for the coming week.
- Lots and lots of top ten lists. I voted for the top ten albums of 2013 list, and wrote a blurb about the Elvis Costello & The Roots album, and also voted for the top ten local albums of 2013, and wrote a blurb about the Dungeonesse album. As we did last year, there were also a bunch of genre-specific lists, and once again I contributed a few: top ten hip-hop albums, top ten local hip-hop albums, top ten dance tracks and top ten Baltimore club tracks.
