Stro Elliot of the Procussions sat down with DJ MZA and Ebo for an episode of Soul Circle Radio a couple months back to discuss the new Procussions album as well as lay down a rare DJ set.
Ayanna Witter-Johnson has released an EP, Black Panther, the followup to 2011s Truthfully. Even though it’s only 4 songs is the amount of amazing you receive in these four tracks is so worth it. Ayanna has a beautiful voice, if you are a fan of Amel Larrieux, Mercedes Martinez, Jill Scott, Angie Stone etc etc etc, then you will love this album
Everybody loves a posse track…..over some good old Headnodic production…..
In the immortal words of Jay-Z “What More Can I Sayyyyyyy”
Released in 2002, J-Live’s sophomore album All Of The Above was the perfect follow up to The Best Part. An emcee’s emcee, J-Live paints beautifully poetic landscapes over some great production. “Nights Like This” and “The 4th 3rd” are a little on the mellow end compared to some other selections off the album, but I believe they properly represent J-Live’s vocal skills. Plus, it’s raining outside my window and these tracks go great with the weather….
The day after Valentine’s Day of the year 2014, Jordan will be releasing what I’m calling “The next pair of Js I’ll actually buy” I still hate the fact they don’t have “Nike Air” on the back……I know, I know, shut up all ready, but hey…..it’s my post. These are still pretty nice, and they make me miss my OG Black/Infrareds………..like a lot…aside from being so visually appealing, I think these are the most comfortable Jordans for me….Just a great shoe..can’t wait for the 2238783424378 different colorways to drop next year which will make me sick to death of the shoe altogether. But, I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Long live Daptone Records!! For Record Store Day this year they released a 7″ for Charles’ new single “Changes” off his Victim of Love album. The B-side to the album was this little ditty, “Ain’t it a Sin” which Charles Bradley recorded with his original backing band, The Bullets. If you’re one of those digital or die types of folks, listen here…..
In honor of Jigga’s 44th birthday yesterday Skyzoo and Antman Wonder linked up for their take on Jay’s debut album. Antman Wonder, a composer from Philly, recreated the original tracks with some live instrumentation. Skyzoo recreated the original tracks lyrically by taking the emotion created by SC and recreating the content from his perspective. The result is a very refreshing version of a classic album. These types of things can go one of two ways, they are either incredibly successful or they are painfully terrible. This is certainly nowhere near terrible. Check it out and decide for yourself. Sidenote : I listened to “Meet The Presidents” multiple times before I could finish the album……
Lauryn Mrs Ms.. Hill Marley Hill gets here tongue trip on in this popularly styled lyrical video. It’s cool….I’d just like to hear an album..not stress or pressure….You know, just like right now….Or tomorrow maybe would be good too. Maybe you and D’Angelo can get together and tour then….what do you think?
