Ohhh yeeaahh, maannnn! Edo. G went in from Berlin! Maybe he knew to put a li'l extra stank on this "Fight!" song; with him being joined by Hall of Fame Public Enemy emcee Mista Chuck D and such. Great visuals. You probably recognize some snips from the "Do The Right Thing" Anniversary event video we posted here in the there, too.
"Let's go, my brother."
- Chuck D
Damn right, Chuck. Let's go! Excellent work by Myster DL on this presentation. Boston STAND UP! Edo can still go... "After All These Years" (out now on iTunes).
You may now kiss... the gas masks? Um...interesting visuals for "Need You" (featuring Blu) off the L'Orange LP entitled "The Orchid Days" (out now). Watch closely. Twice. Think the theme comes through clearly on the second run. Adam and Eve...wedded bliss...communing with each other...but not really...enjoying the beautiful Garden...but not really... The gas masks have got to come off... assuming they were on to keep them alive... the two decide to take them off so they can truly live the rest of their beautiful lives together... however short a lifetime they would then share.
Enjoy. Discuss. And if you want, cop at iTunes via the link below.
Jeff is the DJ. Dayne is the rapper. Yeah. Went there with it. The man is that good! Dayne Jordan in the video with an homage to DJ Jazzy Jeff as the ultimate party rocker. Serving as Jeff's ombudsman, Dayne shares the rebuttal every DJ wants to say when suckaz run up to the booth on some "Play Dat" ish... NO REQUESTS... Paid professional DJ at work! Similarly, Dayne's serving notice: He will make dope music...period. And that's that! No hit-chasing; no requests for anything else needed.
Great live performance footage presented music video style. Enjoy.
Back in the day: Biz and the Beastie Boys balling half-court with Boo Yaa Tribe! Say that real fast five times. Then one more 'gain to let it sink in. All that and more above. The Diabolical answers the OKP Questions. Fast clip full of great bits of Hip-Hop and 80s joy. Watch!
And anotha one! Joell Ortiz drops another video off the upcoming album ("House Slippers") right quick. It'll be out September 16, 2014. What's the rush?? Shiiiid! This message music... That's the rush!
Got Mally Stakz and B.O.B. on this, huh? Makes sense that some ATL-shot footage shows up in here.
Announcing... His Highness... King Of Lawrence (Massachusetts, USA)... Termanology! And on this occasion for his 'coronation' he bringeth good sounds from yonder streets 'round ye olde Boston-town. This be his declarative narrative set to Produceher Beats' music entitled "I'm The King" (presented in visual form for all to enjoy).
Ever-sexy Elle Varner with another good look for us. Visuals for "Don't Wanna Dance" (featuring A$AP Ferg) for us to drool over look at. Dope danceable track. It's good. It's good. Click play and experience it.
Ascending alongside his Wu-Tang Clan Chef Raekwon, architect of the Golden Era classic "Only Built 4 Cuban Linx"... all that. Face it: Folks are interested in what Raek is doing NEXT; not last. Well, trust that the Chef was built to last. And bet money that his upcoming LP "Fly International Luxurious Art" (due out November 4, 2014) will be, too.
Well before the "Fly" release, watch the Chef above; speaking on Hip-Hop and his carer - then and now - and more.
With the wake of all the recent social injustices, Joyner Lucas delivers "Dear America". although the lyrics are graphic, you can hear Joyner's passion for peace within the track and see within the visual. Joyner spent 15 hours putting this visual together and there was no shortage of footage to weave into this powerful visual for his song. Unfortunately available footage could go on for years. Regardless, it is no easier to watch for its regularity. Welcome friends, to the land of the free and the home of the brave. Aren't you proud? Be on the lookout for the upcoming project "Along Came Joyner" coming soon. What's your thoughts?
We gone pray for the innocent... 'cause right now it don't make sense.
- Alicia Keys
"We are here for all of us." Alicia Keys' "We Are Here" message cannot get any clearer or more compelling. So, a nice visual would likely do well to simply bring 'background' and let the viewer soak in content and context. Keeping with that, Alicia went back early 'Crucial Keys' style on us - just a cutie in cornrows on the piano singing soul to the six billion on this planet. This is world music from New York y'all. Enjoy it. Reflect and relate to the music and message.
G-G-G-G... Are they still doing that? Haaa. No matter. But have you checked out that "Beauty of Independence" EP yet? Do that sh!t man. Dopeness like this on there. Visuals for the wilded out cypher-style clique track on deck above. Nice! high energy with lots o' the eye candies scattered in there. This is for "Watch Me" by G-Unit.
I just need to see your smiling faces at my show... Beautiful Life.
- Chuck Brown
Didn't know much about Go-Go legend Chuck Brown? Good time to study up. You can get the Cliff's Notes on the man in the visuals above. This vid for "Beautiful Life" blends light and loving scenes on stage, on the street, with his people... AND a rap by his daughter KK! It's a beautiful song; and this presentation is a beautiful tribute to Brother Brown. You can get his posthumously-released LP at iTunes now.
When she's gone, you'll know how much she's worth.
Soulful singer Joe has another masterpiece on his hands - "Bridges" - ready for you to get it into your hands (rather, iTunes library). In this new music video for "If You Loser Her" (directed by industry vet Billie Woodruff), Joe starts on stage crooning some of that grown and sexy sound to a lady alone in the venue... as a compelling story concept plays out; beginning with her man coming in late... maybe too late. Gotta watch. Single produced by Derek Allen & Gerald Isaac. Got that album link for you if after that you want to cop.
Dear God. Keep my mind straight. I'm unsure about the future...
How real can it get? Phene just looked at his life and told you. Director KD Gray visually interprets what, in effect, is a true story from Phene's life. This is Phene's video for "Keep Me On Track" (produced by Marcotiks) off his forthcoming project, "Revelation 717."
