The Validictorians of the Game

elcome to my vision, my dream, and my passion. The5Twenty Magazine is finally here and it’s been long overdue. I love this city we call Tucson aka The T.U.C, aka the Tuc-Town, aka Stash-City, aka The 520. Call it what you want but the fact still remains; I love this city to the death of me. I was born here, got my education in these streets and at Pima Community College, met my wife here, plan to raise a family and truth be told I’ll probably die here. eedless to say this city has no shortage of creativity. We’ve always been known for our southwestern style artists and painters thanks to our breathtaking landscapes and colorful scenery. This also ties in with the photography scene. I mean honestly you can’t capture a more beautiful sunset photo than you can out here. Just look up the hash tag #arizonasunset on Instagram and you’ll see what I’m talking about ut the Music Scene around here… ohh man! Things have been getting really exciting. Everybody involved in the music scene knows that it’s only a matter of time before somebody from here makes it big. The Hip Hop scene in Tucson right now is a ticking time bomb and I for one cant wait to see it explode. We got live shows every weekend, a nationally known battle scene, and lots of locals with superstar qualities and potential.

B

ut there’s also quite a bit of bullshit tho too. I don’t want to sound negative but the truth is the scene has also been a bit flooded with half-assers to the point that its made it hard for those that are gifted to approach anybody with their music. Now if your music is good it will stand out regardless, but it’s become a definite cause for concern. ENTER THE5TWENTY MAGAZINE… ur main goal at THE5TWENTY is to showcase the artists that deserve it. We aren’t saying we’re gonna make you famous but we WILL do our absolute best to give credit where credit is due. We want those involved in urban music, art, poetry, photography, clothing and that 520 lifestyle to view us as a central hub for everything Tucson related. Artists will be able to submit their work and if you’re truly representing the 520, THE5TWENTY will represent for you.

SPOTLIGHT
ust ask anybody in the TUC if they’ve ever heard of Mr. Selfmade Cash Lansky and if they say no they’ve either been under a rock for the past couple of years or they strait up lying. Chances are most of you are either friends with the guy on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram but if by some chance you aren’t, google the man and get familiar. Dude’s been doin his thing, and its impossible not to notice. The UofA Mixtape and Limitless Mixtape gave us a great introduction to the man throwin up the Selfmade 76 Elite Society every time he’s on a stage. But his new album simply titled “Simplicity” is nothing near simplistic. atter of fact Mr. Lansky gives us proof he’s able to adapt in this ever changing game we love so much. It will be available on January 5th of this new year with a album release soirée to be hosted at Club Congress. Featured along side Cash on this 12 track feature film are fellow 520 artists Marley B, Runt, ShoNuff and yours truly, kAZual dA kID (feat. on the smash hit “Big Deal” <--shameless plug). It also features production by 8oheight, Rukus Beats, Kickitfree, and the Jivin Scientists who also mixed and mastered this bad boy at the Mothership Studio located in the Rep T.U.C shop. Needless to say the future is looking very bright for Cash. Recently linking up with RipDee and GLDN Artist Group, he now has a nice army of dream-chasers behind him to push him into the life he is destined to lead. We will be patiently waiting to see it all go down before our own eyes. Get em’ Pimpin!! -kAZ
