Hip-hop from the heart

His mother was supposedly rushed out of a James Brown concert to give birth to him. That could be why, in one of his poems, Saul Williams says, “At that concert he sang, ‘Say it loud, I’m Black and I’m Proud,’ and that shit came out in my bloodstream.” On

Original Roadhouse Grill opens

The latest location for the Original Roadhouse Grill is a killer. It's in the Federal Way retail bottleneck, at the back of some plaza that sits like a box canyon; shoppers, diners, and moviegoers alike all funnel into this zone off 320th and Highway 99, half blind from wholesale excess,
