CAS UNO: Sticks Out Like A Sore Thumb.

There's little doubt that if you've been to a PDP show over the past 5 years, you've experienced Cas Uno of Labeless Illtelligence. Whether its been when he's (sometimes quite literally) tearing apart the stage, downing brews by the billion at the bar, or holding court outside schooling the uninitiated on the finer points of his vast network of CASpiracy theories, he's been a consistent, strong, and welcome presence in our Poorly Drawn lives.

And he's got a new record for you.

His latest CD is Sticks Out Like A Sore Thumb, and he has announced that it will be his last proper solo album. He was good enough to invite a good chunk of PDP to the farewell party, as Storm Davis and Reason make appearances on the mic and Dox handles production on numerous tracks. We urge you to pick up this album without hesitation. It's dope, and definitely the most consistent and accessible Cas Uno project to date.

Here's the science from Cas himself:
Pardon the delay. Especially with the build up. I got caught up these last 3 days and tried pretty damn hard to get everything all set before being loud with the release....

IF? you click the cover above, our pals at have it up for presale (even though they are holding now and will ship upon purchase).... Or you can paypal we at: to cop directly from we....

We'll get this out to the bloggers, magazines still existant, websites, web stores, and physical locations in the coming days.... But bottomline; It's here fams. It's finally here....

Support the song saga that is we selling sh!t, suckas.
Also, once you've copped the disc, make sure you check out Cas' super-thorough song-by-song breakdown of the album at the Labeless blog here.

R.I.P. Eyedea (1981-2010)

If it weren't for Eyedea, Educated Consumers would never have become a part of our Poorly Drawn People family. If it weren't for Eyedea, many of the friends & supporters reading this page right now wouldn't know who we are. If it weren't for Eyedea, this rap thing that we do wouldn't be what it is today.

Rest In Peace, brother, and thank you for bringing so many great friends and family members into our life.

Please click here and give what you can to his memorial fund.

FALSIDE: October Update

Lil bro and PDP producer emeritus Falside has dropped knowledge regarding his latest comings and goings:

Whats the word internerds? The month of October has been nothing but productive. I am currently neck deep in unreleased material bound to make you heads nod. I’ll start off with announcing the title to my album, (yes my album). Dusty Knuckle Fan Club (D.K.F.C.). This will be my first official release/full length producer compilation featuring a culmination of artists from coast to coast. As of now, I do not have a release date, but rest assured it is on it’s way to completion (so keep it on your radar). For now, I can let you know that Jeru the Damaja, Stalley, Planet Asia, and Copywrite have all contributed DOPE to the project….but that is give or take 35% of the suprises in store.

Along with the release of Dusty Knuckle Fan Club I am working on a free mixtape with that will be a freebie bonus disc included with Dusty Knuckle Fan Club. In the upcoming month, I will be leaking two or three songs from the mixtape on the interwebs (most notably, a fire record with Pack Fm and RADIx, another with Canada’s grindhorse Noah23, and other gems with Lo-Life Meyhem Lauren and Queens wordsmith, Action Bronson).

On the home front, Reason (Poorly Drawn People) and myself will be announcing the release of our Free EP (Death Before Decaf). This is a collection of dope records we have completed over the summer/early fall months. More information on that project very soon. Rite Hook and myself also have some new kush brewing ready to fuck you in your ear drums. I am contributing to many upcoming Poorly Drawn People releases (The Million Dollar Dumpster Mixtape) and a collaboration with fellow PDP REC family, Educated Consumers.

You will not be able to avoid that promo onslaught once it begins.

That’s that, for now.

People We Know.

A few weeks back, Dirty Hank released a digital EP called I Might Need A Doctor that featured Storm Davis on the track "Burning In Water." If you missed it, its now the Featured Download at, a blog that's shown a healthy grip of PDP love in the past.

Now, Hank is offering one of his previous digital EPs, Dirty Hank's Guide to Giving Up, in hard copy CD format for your collecting pleasure. Here's what he says:
Nothing special here, slim cases, cd-r and a shitty printed label. But they come directly from me and I include a personalized death threat with each order. Stickers and other shit come with it too. they are 4 bucks shipping is free. they can reach me at this hankisdirty at
Concise and thorough. That's Dirty Hank for you. Salesman of the Year.

The Guide to Giving Up features PDP's Falside on beats and Reason on rhymes. If you ain't got it, go get it.

Also, this Saturday night, Reason joins Dirty Hank to throw down alongside friends-of-PDP Labeless Illtelligence, Big CityBumpus, The ProblemAddicts, TroopRaw and Mic.Feen as Providence welcomes Michigan's One.Be.Lo to the City Cafe. Details can be found here.
