The Empire Project is another way of saying Nico Araco and Kyle Wolf. The guys are from Aberdeen and a few days ago these hip-hop artists put their new song Garden State Of Mind on YouTube and if you're from Jersey you want to listen to it. If you're from the 732 area code you have to listen to it. By law, I think. It's a rap song with bongo percussion and a very cool style.

It mentions Wawa, NJ Devils, porkroll, road rage, The Sopranos...the list goes on. How long before someone in Trenton floats a bill to make this the official state song?
