HHHThree in the mornin’,
Apologies for the lack of updates. I’ve been caught in a whirlwind of promo for my upcoming TOUR (15 cities cross Canada! Come see us!!!) and haven’t really had time to keep you up with all the happenings of recent.
Well, in the past little bit, I’ve seen such an incredible slew of videos (good, bad and WTF?!) that I thought I’d just post a few of’em each day for the next little while until I get some time to really pump some ish out. Those who’re regular on the blog circuit might notice that some of these are a few weeks old but for those who haven’t, enjoy.
The Roots – How I Got Over (sorry wasn’t able to embed. Twitvid is being a b.i. Click pic)
The Bad (as in M.J. Bad)
Jay-Z – D.O.A.
Hurricane Chris – Halle Berry (Live for the Louisiana House of Representatives)
And as a BONUS MPFREE, some new Sa-Ra featuring the lovely miss Erykah Badu. – click pic.
Be well world.
First off, apologies from the crew for being away this past week. The CAPtain‘s been marinating in some birthday love, M.A. continues his quest to Waakao the world and I’ve been sewing up some of the final details for the PPF House ‘Slow Claps’ Tour which will see us hit 20 cities nationwide this summer (So, all my Canadian homies, keep your eyes peeled cause we’ll be in your neck of the woods very soon).
Secondly, in regards to the blog title…cot damn!! if there weren’t a crazy amount of treats offered up on the blog circuit this week. I won’t be able to get to’em all today, but I’ll do my best to give you the highlights.
SA-RA Creative Partners
I’m a large fan of these guys.
Even though their debut effort sounded less like an album and more like a compilation thrown together a week before deadline, these L.A. maestros somehow managed to flex their musical muscles and avoid being overshadowed beneath a ridiculous cast of guest spots that included: Dilla, Kurupt, Q-Tip, Kweli and Pharoahe Monch…just to name a few..and show people that, in the illustrious words of Robert Diggs, Sa-Ra ‘ain’t nuttin’ to F*!# wit‘.
Now prepping to drop their Sophomore set Nuclear Evolution: The Age of Love, I give you some sneak peek material that I can only hope dwarfs their previous effort.
Even though Hip-Hop has designated a Golden Age period for the sake of its cultural timeline, I don’t think I’m wrong in saying that for each serious listener and lover of music, we all go through our own renditions of a Golden Age.
Black Star was an integral part of mine.
Now I can’t really explain why these 2 very afrocentric lyricists are so beloved by Asian kids everywhere, or why Okayplayer shows seem to always be 50% my kin, but they are. I’d like to think that my reasons behind my fandom are unique, but chances are they aren’t. And well…as I try to find ways to separate myself from the pack, the bottom line is, when these 2 get together, it’s nuts. Whether you’re referencing: Know That (Black on Both Sides), Joy (Quality), Supreme Supreme (Right About Now), Little Brother (Hurricane OST) or the whole Self-Titled Black Star album, these guys have that intangible ish. And well, they’re back again for Mos’ upcoming effort, Ecstatic and I’m happy bout it.
I generally write enough about Dilla on this blog. No more writing.
Watch and DL.
It’s Friday Folk…scrap it up.
Be well World
