Yoooo! Get this Smooth Semali (yeah, I’m trying that moniker out for dude) not now, but right now! The single (and a remix) is available at iTunes. From the album “Yen Dollar Music, Vol. 2: Senior Dues” out now, too. Damn dope visuals above.
(Wonder why they put periods after their song titles. Kinda… Oh well…)
Another delightfully successful soul music experiment that Denitia & Sene decided to call “Runnin.” Loving the echo’ey way the track and vocals mingle. Deep lyrics.
Since nobody who’s lived has died
There’s always something left behind
Why are you afraid to fell
We couldn’t fail unless we try
Please stop runnin
This is a ‘Beast Mode’ rebroadcast episode of Atlanta’s premier Hip-Hop radio show that aired Friday night 9pm-12midnight EST from the Peachtree Street studios of Atlanta’s most popular internet radio station — ABLRADIO!

That’s right. The homie Tez McClain’s new video, “Damn, Sh!t” (produced by Nexx Generation) is a pretty dope joint. Not to mention some hit-home some social commentary. You oughta do yourself the favor of checking it out (above).
Written, directed and… well… that’s enough extra duty for a man in his own movie, right? Chris Rock stars in “Top Five” – his story of a comedian going for acceptance as a serious comedian after years of success as a mainstream actor. All-star cast includes Rosario Dawson, Tracy Morgan, Kevin Hart, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Che, and Cedric The Entertainer. Scored by Questlove (of The Roots). Executive produced by Jay Z and Kanye West.
Bill Murray. Wanna know something about world travel? Holler at JayForce. Just saying. And as long as Bill’s paying, it can be another passport stamp!
Ok, enough. Promo stop, dropping in on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live,’ Mr. Murray probably talked up his movie “St. Vincent” (co-starring alongside Melissa McCarthy, Chris O’Dowd and Naomi Watts) … but in the clip, it’s all about Bill being spontaneous and traveling at the drop of a hat.
That hat though, by the way. Nice!
Straight from a NBA MVP: “This is one of the most important times of the year. This is when we put in the most work…” For Kevin Durant, it’s basketball all day, every day, and he loves it. The rest of it… well, that’s just what comes along with it. All good. In fact, this looks better than good if you are a fan; or just interested in depth perspectives on interesting people. “Kevin Durant: The Off Season” premieres Tuesday, November 4, 2014, at 10 PM EST on HBO.
The undeniable Hip-Hop-n-B aficionado is back on the “Scene” with his man Stat Diddy aka Statik Selektah hitting hard on a smoothed out track! Striking visual presentation to accompany and promote this single off the “Still Blue” LP due out next week (October 28, 2014). Check it out! Crazy… They ain’t playing around (clowning… sure).
Want that Bugs Bunny money, and that’s all folks!
– Styles P
More heat off the “Phantom and the Ghost” project (link to earlier post of that below). Styles P The Ghost known to “Smoke All Day” – trying blow those problems away (above). Dyce Payne sang that. Yessir, S-P and Payne got themselves a banger over that piano beat (by Dayzel).
“Straight Outta Compton” (the movie about NWA) is pretty much a wrap. Can’t wait for it to get into theaters. Here’s Ice Cube speak on the forthcoming movie with similiar anticipatory zeal. Check above.
Okay, you’ve seen some really cool hoverboard demos that were actually cool feats at film technology (e.g. camera tricks, with famous actors ‘witnessing’ the hovering). This ain’t that. This is Hendo Hover’s genuine Kickstarter video. The future is now.
Coolest line: “The wheel may finally have some competition.”
…And the founders promise those who ‘kick in’ will get a ‘starter’ kit; allowing them to demo the technology themselves (not the board, but a ‘white box’ hoverer that shows what the board will accomplish). Watch above. Follow the link to help fund the campaign (below).
“…if you say something too weird I might punch you.”
Whoa…take it easy Ab-Soul. It’s just Nardwuar, the Hip-Hop Serviette. Just some quirky questioning; and always cool convo (plus gifts).
Nardwuar interviews Ab-Soul at Fortune Sound Club in Vancouver, BC, Canada.
Haaa! But see how Nard ‘walked through’ that threat and got on with the interview though? He a G!
Yeah mane (in the Big K.R.I.T. voice)! K.R.I.T. in Philly to talk about the November dropping of his Cadillac-crashed-on-planet-Earth musical project (called “Cadillactica”). Nice interview. Convo about the concepts, reliance on outside production for the first time in his career; along with K.R.I.T.’s desire to score films, to discover the next David Ruffin… the beard… the sneaker chase… a lot of good going on in the near 11-minute clip above.
Great block to add to the build up for the album release.
Talk about a horror movie in real life (and we will, right now)!
Breathe. It’s a prank. Breathe. Nobody. Died.
(Breathe. But don’t try this prank in a stand-your-ground state with no camera crew… your SAG card will double as a toe tag… baaahahaaa!)
Internet pranksters Vitaly Zdorovetskiy and Nick Santonastasso send hapless passersby breaking the f#ck out (like you holler at folks in horror movies to do) when they come across a scene of murderous gore. The worst nightmarish 1-8-7s in progress
Its that time of the year again…Halloween..so I decided to team up with Nick Santonastasso to help me pull this brutal prank…This is definitely one of my favorites.

Kinda mad that nobody thought about a rescue via vehicular manslaughter (um…meaning… hit that muthaf##ker with the car) though. Ha. And no smartphones? (Not to call for help; to cam and Instagram… c’mon, not one? Hahaa.)
Oh well, Happy Halloween everyone!
Hmmm. It’s okay to admit. When you think driverless car, you think top speed… about as fast as say… a golf cart. Tell you what. How about a German-engineered driving machine, with no driver, moving at full speed? How about at RACING speed; like on a racetrack? Yeah, that happened; the Audi RS 7 did a driverless lap at Hockenheim raceway! Watch.
That’s alright right there, J. Keys! Perspectives from the A3C we just put in the books… and from our Beatz & Lyrics Show 15th Anniversary Concert (featuring J. Keys, Elzhi, Skyzoo, J-Live and more) during the Festival.
The 10th annual A3C took place over 5 days, between Wednesday, Oct 8th and Sunday, Oct 12th. A3C venues were centrally located throughout four closely connected, high traffic, cultural hubs in metro Atlanta: Downtown, Old 4th Ward, Little 5 Points and East Atlanta Village.
Nice. Very nice. Salute! Y’all click and enjoy.
Mmmm… There goes sultry soulstress Rochelle Jordan checking in with some sweet heartbreak on a track. Iamsu! on there with a quick rap. The the vibe is definitely on that ‘how-could-it-happen-to-Rochelle?’
Happens to everyone. Feel that. Play this.
“It’s meaty… horribly, horribly meaty… mixed with that familiar doggy smell…”
Okay. Westerners may need to settle themselves and their stomachs. And open their minds. Yes. It’s just as you’d suspect: VICE is at a meat market (in the Chinese province of Yulin) where they butcher and sell dogs to lots and lots of people who eat them. You will hear shocking terms used… like tasty… and healthy…
No judgements. Okay, that’s bull… but watch the video expo though. It’s VICE, so you know the reporting will come at the story from a different perspective that might cause you to rethink. Compelling.
(Gotta say… the reporter, Izzy Yeung, is hella cute.)
In 2013, the Yulin festival gathered so much negative press that this year, the local government denied the Summer Solstice dog-eating tradition ever even existed. But that hasn’t stopped locals from celebrating—nor has it stopped die-hard activists from flooding the town in an attempt to rescue the dogs before the slaughter. VICE Reports headed to Yulin this year to get to the bottom of the most controversial festival in China.
