St. Louis emcee Nick Menn's new concept album 'Goon Road' is set to release, and is ready to shed light on the dark story-line that is behind the album; all while providing quality music. Following up his first release under his government name in 2012 with "The Good"; Nick Menn, formerly known as Whiteout, is dropping a concept album consisting of enough quality material to be split into three EPs over a three month time span.
Goon Road is the name of an actual road located in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Goon Road has a haunted history, and was also the go-to place for partying and drugs...

Nice print article from the Riverfront Times saying Doorway should be famous now!
By RFT Music Allison Babka: Rappers sometimes are known for waging lyrical (or worse) war on each other. Not so with Doorway: These guys have made it clear that collaboration and positivity are the keys to good tunes. A collective of individually talented artists, Doorway takes advantage of its killer songwriting chops to explore relationships, social issues, cautionary tales and more with hooks that are a little bit throwback, a little bit street and a whole lot of jam. Throw in partnerships with local titans...Read More

Goon Road is the name of an actual road located in Fairview Heights, Illinois. Goon Road has a haunted history & was also the go-to place for partying and drugs during Nick Menn's teen years. The project will be a concept based on the dark history of the road as well as heavy drug usage. It is meant to blur the perceived lines between reality, life, and death... and will be split into three EPs (there also happens to be three hills on Goon Road). With many layers and symbols spread throughout the expansive project, it will give listeners a chance to find something new with each listen. When as...Read More

Shoutout to Crazy al Cayne at SugarCayne.com who wrote about us being the standout Indie act at A3C this year.
"When we went to Little 5 Points to go check out the Mass Appeal show at the Star Bar for the A3C HipHop Festival we saw this act performing in the parking lot behind the spot. They had this blacked out RV that was setup with a loud ass system and a window for the DJ and a booth with their merch setup next to their van and I was like” this is dope”! The name of the group is named Doorway and not only was I impressed by their presentation and setup I was equally impressed with...Read More

Ramel "RT-FaQ" Prince of the group Doorway of the 618 presents his album "Heir To The Throne". In celebration of his son Royale Prince turning the age of one, he decided to release an album fully dedicated to him. It's a concept album that brings you into the mind of a young black man during the times of a pregnancy. Also imbedded in the album are lessons that he wants his son to learn as he grows up and listens to the album later on in life. The date of birth to his son is 12/16 so RT-FaQ chose 12 tracks full of 16 bar verses and also features artists such as Veo Chillz, Nick Menn, L-Gifted,...

With several projects under WhiteOut belt, The Good is his first full-length solo album using his government name. The Good alludes not only to his love of herbal medicine but also his life and lyrics. Nick Menn showcases a broad spectrum of his lyrical abilities and experiences, as expected from a debut album. The culmination of these lyrics & experiences over a diverse spectrum of sound and well placed features most certainly proves that Nick Menn is delivering The Good....

Hip-hop artist Nick Menn, also known as Nick Menn, just dropped visuals for his dope remix of Kendrick Lamar's "m.A.A.d City" on WorldStar. The video for Nick's rendition, named "Fast Kid, Slow City", shows a glimpse inside his day from 2:20pm to midnight.
Reason to watch: There's no shortage of toy guns, marijuana, or facial hair.
Watch below and I recommend you find Nick on Facebook for some daily laughs.

I had the pleasure of kickin' it with these dudes last weekend at Hystory's mixtape release party. I must admit I hadn't listened to them prior to their live performance that night and their set instantly won me over with their intense, rapid flows.
While hangin' backstage, Whiteout showed me a preview of a new video they had planned to drop in a few days thereafter. Now it's time for you to check the video out for yourself, here's Starz Come Out:
