It’s late (1:30 in the A.M. on the west coast) and this video came out in February but I can’t help but share this. Dude is ultra dope!!
Statik Selektah’s ‘What Goes Around‘ album is out now. Gary, IN what up?!
I’m a sucker for some Berlin. Lloyd also draws inspiration from Faith Evans (peep her song “I Love You”). #SampleSkillz
“My Sweetest Sin”
“Crazy Love” (my personal favorite)
“I Love You Madly”
Land of the free, home of the brave…
There was a time in my life when I gave a fuck. Every chance I got I was screaming about it. I was younger. It’s so easy to try to save the world when you’re in college. You got nothing but time and no responsibility. But soon life hits you. No more dorms, no more meal plan, no more refund check. Nigga need a job. Nigga got rent. Got car note. Cable bill. Girlfriend moves in and becomes wife. Baby on the way. Career advances. Instagram is poppin. Lebron leaves Miami. LIFE HITS. We become distracted. We become numb. I became numb. But not anymore. That coulda been me, easily. It could have been my best friend. I’m tired of being desensitized to the murder of black men. I don’t give a fuck if it’s by police or peers. This shit is not normal. I made a song. This is how we feel.
Rest in Peace to Michael Brown and to every young black man murdered in America, whether by the hands of white or black. I pray that one day the world will be filled with peace and rid of injustice. Only then will we all Be Free.” – Cole
This video reminds of a mix between Nada Surf’s “Popular” video and Beach House’s “Wishes” video. The bells, the bounce and the beat indeed! The new album We Loved Her Dearly is available Sept 16th.
You know how some songs grow on you over time? I listened to this song once and thought to myself “it’s cool” but didn’t really feel an overwhelming feeling of wanting to instantly put the song on my ipod. Then I smoked. Weed really speeds up the process. And now I’m here hitting replay and bobbing my head. The Memphis emcees next project Alyss drops in September (this track however will not appear on the EP).
And the winner of the most underrated hip-hop song of our era goes to…
This song still stands true to time. So many quotables.
So I was sitting on the couch the other night watching Bandits on mute and listening to PARTYNEXTDOOR during this very scene. They seemed to mesh rather well so I decided to put them together. Enjoy.
Here’s a throwback to the time when we used to do a “Way Back Wednesday” post every week. Been bumping this one non-stop as of late.
