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?
MNDSGN has been making music for several years now and everything he’s done has been worth spending your hard earned money on. His newest venture, Breatharian, is being pushed by Fresh Selects and is quite impressive. If you dig the video for “Hiking” and “Fif Dim” I suggest you head over to the link provided below and sample the rest of the album, then cop it. Get you a limited edition cassette version to go along with your digital version. If you do not know what a cassette is……well…I’m not sure how you found me but email me and we got a lot to talk about.
Sivion (Deep Space 5) talks about “We Got What You Want” from his album Group Therapy. The track features Sareem Poems (L.A. Symphony) and Propaganda (Humble Beast) assisting on some Thought P production. The album is available now through Illect Recordings.
Purchase : SIVION – GROUP THERAPY
When I first picked up Nia, it took me like 3 weeks to get past #4 on the album. Just an good song. Classic Gift of Gab x Chief Xcel work.
You can tell so much about a person by the way they smile. There is nothing I can add to this and nothing I can say that is worthy of all that Mr. Mandela accomplished in his lifetime. Nor can I properly put in to perspective the amount of gratitude that the world owes the man for his sacrifices. We should all be so lucky to accomplish so much. Rest in eternal peace sir…
