Cormega – “Rise” feat. Maya Azucena (Prod. By Large Professor)

Large Pro and Cormega’s album “Mega Philosophy” ought to be pretty beastly (posted earlier on it, see the link below). Two Hip-Hop vets make for a good bet. Here’s another taste test of it: “Rise” (featuring Maya Azucena). Don’t you enjoy the feel of a joint when everybody feels the joint… when the beatmaker stops and marvels as he shares his own genius (start of the video)? Yeah, you do. This is that. Watch and listen as all involved do their thing on the track.

Dayne Jordan – “Einstein” (Prod. By DJ Ferno) [Video]

Cristopher Schafer (Visually Inklined) captures like… everything, right? Well, at least for the frames involved in Vinyl Destination episodes and Dayne Jordan’s latest music videos. This short and sweet has Dayne injecting a deadly Dosage on the beat produced by DJ Ferno (see him and Dayne on a couple of Jazzy Jeff’s Vinyl Destinations).

Talking ‘Bout Biggie And More: NBA’s John Starks Has Answers For ESPN’s ‘Highly Questionable’ (Video)

This episode of ESPN’s Highly Questionable will be highly memorable for one reason: Starks stuck to the ‘G’ Code… No snitching! Former NBA standout John Starks declares that Notorious B.I.G.’s song “I Got A Story To Tell” was not about him. It was about one of his New York Knicks teammates… You can guess all you want though… ’cause Starks will NOT speak on it!

But watch the whole video though. Memories and chuckles shared by the bag boy turned pro baller Starks.

Technology: MIT Lets Its Cheetah Give The Defense Department A Run For Its Money (Video)

Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), an agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of new technologies for use by the military, is at again! Above is video of The Cheetah 2MIT research funded by DARPA – capable of running 10 mph and jumping more than a foot over stuff. You’ll see all that above. Not only in a sterile lab; but out and about in the school’s yard. Not in the jungle… yet. But near-term applications like improvements in human prostheses; not jungle warfare… yet.

Blank On Blank: Michael Jackson Speaking On Godliness (Video)

“My singing… I’ll just say it simple as possible: it’s just godly.”
Michael Jackson

The legend of Michael Jackson lives, in all facets, through things like this interview; animated for and presented by PBS’ Blank On Blank series. And part of his legend, is the well-known quirkiness inherent in in-person interaction with the King Of Pop. Even before “Thriller,” MJJ had his rules… like don’t stare or look him directly in the eyes. The rule/directive for this interview: Michael only talks to his sister Janet. So the interviewer, John Pidgeon, had to ask his questions to then 13-year old Janet Jackson who then relayed them to Michael.

Still, we get great insight from the session. Check it out.

Dayne Jordan – ‘LOST’ featuring Ebony Joi (Prod. By DJ Jazzy Jeff x James Poyser) [Video]

Can’t noooobody say Dayne don’t keep it Philly! He lassoed the fellow Philadelphans DJ Jazzy Jeff and James Poyser (of The Roots) for the production AND R&B singer Ebony Joi to do the honors on this beautiful track. I got wind of this from Dayne Jordan himself. He let me know he released a new song…“LOST.” I checked for it on his site. Boom. Doooope!

Shot the video (above) in Azerbaijan? Yeah, Dayne does world travel. Keeping it Philly doesn’t mean not getting your passport stamped.

Time ain’t money, and money ain’t time.
Truth. When money is lost, it ain’t hard to find.
Dayne Jordan

Message! Folks listen. This is the time. This is your life. Make it the time of your life. Now, the grind is the grind; and it will wear you down. And money is a LOUSY way to keep score in the game of life. Instead living to make millions (stay out the trap!), just live! Live your passion (not for your pockets), and win! When Ebony sings ‘there’s no place there for you…get away from there soon…’ it is real! Poverty had Dayne this close to choosing to chase cash instead of his dreams. Then where would he have ended up? Likely where broken people go to die; NOWHERE (the hell where broken spirits spend eternity)! Nah. Dayne had to go. Philly emcee turned world traveler (hitting all those ‘Vinyl Destinations’ with DJ Jazzy Jeff best believe)!

Beatnick x K-Salaam – “Checkpoints: Ghetto To Gaza” feat. Talib Kweli x M1 (Of Dead Prez) [Video]

A checkpoint, a checkpoint, everywhere a checkpoint…

The visuals for “Checkpoints” probably bring to light what most of us probably know (a reality of which we are informed or numbed enough to no longer fear): a ghetto is a ghetto. And the ghetto (be it in yesteryear Germany; or today’s Gaza or Ferguson) is where the real casualties of war take place. Where we are being killed in government sanctioned ways… oppressive poverty, lacking nutrition and education, youth roaming the streets… unprotected from danger… from those meant to protect and serve… either the government chooses to do something, or chooses NOT to do something, about what’s going on in the ghetto (here or there, now or then; no difference).

Who would speak truth on a track with themes like that? Guess. A Beatnick & K-Salaam track. Talib Kweli and M1 added on. C’mon! Single out on iTunes now. Video above. Full-length on the way.

Watch to the end.

Fix your coat. Prepare for 40 below spit.
Royce Da 5’9

Woooo! That’s cold. How cold? Google 40 degrees below zero (Fahrenheit or Celsius, it don’t f#ckin matter… COLD)! Cold like the rhymes and cuts you get on this quick-n-dirty vid “PRhyme” – an ultimate collab between DJ Premier and Royce Da 5’9. Does this mean they are working on a project together?

Fingers crossed.
