So Good Kid MAAD City dropped and you have listened to it a good amount of times to the point you are interested in the people who contributed to the project. So naturally you try to find out who Anna Wise is and what her music sounds like. You notice that she also worked with Ab-Soul on Control System and other projects. You then find out what Sonnymoon is about. Now you are interested in the person who was singing at the end of “Sing About Me”. Well that’s a hard one. Continue reading
Another nice track, why its not on the album is a good question. Downloaded. That sample sounds very familiar. Check it down bottom plus pt 1 & 2.
Willie Hutch – Mother’s Theme
The Heart Pt.1
The Heart Pt.2
How did this video ever pass over me? I’m still bumping this song heavy!
A while back I took a survey on what collaboration project people would love to see come to light. The main competitors were Nas & Common or J.Cole & Kendrick Lamar. A surprising amount of people choice J.Cole & Kendrick Lamar over Nas/Common. Now that we are pretty sure that the Cole & Kendrick project will actually be released, I am curious to see which project people are now more excited to hear.

Almost all choruses Jhene Aiko does with TDE complement the track nicely and the streak continues on this one, she has a nice tone. Soulo Soulo Soulo Continue reading
Willie B has these mini series on youtube where he basically shows you a sample and then how he chopped it and makes an excellent production. In this episode he shows the origins of Kendrick Lamar’s “Rigamortis”. For some reason the audio quality in this video is pretty shitty but I bet it sounds wonderful in real life. Enjoy and check out more episodes from Willie B.
He’s probably the most unknown member of Black Hippy, overshadowed by Jay Rock, Schoolboy Q, and Kendrick Lamar. He’s been out for a few years now and has put in work. I’ve been paying close attention to a lot of artists but Ab-Soul always impresses me with his vision, flows, abstract subjects and drive. That drive is something you can’t deny this guy has. As he says “more drive than the fastest hooptie“. He really says whatever he’s thinking, Continue reading
Some new music from Soul Brother #2! I can’t wait for his new project to drop. Mixed by Ali and produced by digi+phonics.
Last night Schoolboy Q had his first headliner show and lucky for me it was in the city so I got a chance to attend the event. Let me tell you how the night went….peep Continue reading
