I’ve been a fan of The Cool Kids for about 3 years now. I first heard Tennille on a Cool Kids song called “Jump rope” & since then I’ve been a fan of hers as well. It’s dope to see her droppin’ some new music as well as working with long time collaborator Mikey Rocks also known as Sir Michael Rocks. The song is dope, dealing with relationships, smoking good marijuana and how the two situations fuse together.
The big homie Funkmaster Flex recently linked up with J. Cole to just chop it up about random topics. The boy Cole breaks down his favorite sneakers, why he’s not feeling the Porsche truck anymore and exactly why Scarlett Johannson is so thorough. He just made me even more of a fan ’cause I haven’t heard many people adore Ms. Johannson the way I do.
A slew of artists have been doing Sessions on iTunes and Gorillaz are the latest addition. Gorillaz have been one of my favorite bands for a minute so it’s always great to see/hear new stuff from them. The iTunes session will include 9 songs, one of them being an exclusive interview with the band.
This is a video for the group Cassius’ song “I Love You So” as you can clearly see by the title of this post but, this video is crazy dope just because of it’s simple creativity. Peep it.
Donny Hathaway is an American Musical Legend. Hathaway, in my opinion, is one of the most gifted musicians of the last 100 years. Not only was Donny Hathaway an incredible vocalist & songwriter, he was a highly talented producer & composer. His songs range from tales of pain & heartache to songs that could inspire future generations toward a new age of positivity, creativity, and inspiration. For these reasons and many more Donny Hathaway is a true Light Bringer.
Donny Edward Hathaway (October 1, 1945 – January 13, 1979) was an American soul musician.
Hathaway contracted with Atlantic Records in 1969 and with his first single for the Atco label, “The Ghetto, Part I” in early 1970, Rolling Stone magazine “marked him as a major new force in soul music.” His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored high on the charts and won him the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the duet, “Where Is the Love” in 1973. Six years later, his body was found outside the luxury hotel Essex House in New York City; his death was ruled a suicide.
The big homies are back with a dope video for my man Benji’s song “City I” from his tape SSDD2. Peep it.
