New ID: Rob Regal Talks Name Change, New Project & Redskins Name Controversy


Under the rap alias Lyriciss, 26-year-old Rob Bailey spent an entire decade amassing fans, rocking stages in his home state of Maryland and across the nation, releasing three critically acclaimed full-length projects, and earning nods from hip hop giants like DJ Premier and Sway. So after giving the world his strongest body of work to date, The Balancein 2013, you might expect him to keep pushing Lyriciss to the masses. Instead, he’s wiped Lyriciss off the map like a man on the run, and in his place steps Rob Regal.

We’re Back: 2words The Top Making It’s Return


After a nearly year-long hiatus, 2words The Top is back like we never left! The premier site in music and sports is officially up and running again as of today. If you’ve forgotten what we’ve done so far here’s a reminder:

We’ve interviewed Rapsody, who is preparing to release her DJ Drama-hosted She Got Game mixtape in a few weeks, Lyriciss, who recently made an appearance on Shade45’s “Sway In The Morning” radio show and is among one of the top emcees in the DC-area, and former national player of the year Jimmer Fredette’s brother, TJ Fredette, who shared an incredibly heartwarming story. We also put you on to a lot of dope up and coming artists that weren’t covered by other sites out there.

What you can expect from us is not trend-following, but trailblazing, and providing original content talking with and about the players and events in music and sports that need to be talked about. And we’ll be doing just that with an interview later today. 2 Words: You’re Welcome.
