Hoop Dreams purports that his DJ name was not lifted from the 1994 documentary about Chicago high school students pursuing their dreams in relation to white nets, but that it is, in fact, his given name. But Hoop Dreams is not the name on his driver's license (Justin Gibbs), so we're not buyi...   More

Panther, "Puerto Rican Jukebox," 14 kt. God (Kill Rock Stars)

What exactly is a Puerto Rican Jukebox? Does a Jukebox by any other name (or, rather, with additional descriptors in its name) sound as sweet? I imagine the selection would vary from what one finds at the local Burgerville, but would there be a Puerto Rican equivalent of every hit and genre that blast...   More
