Hope you been a loyal listener of the Beatz & Lyrics Show on here. If so, you already know to get geeked about this vid’jo treat. Our sexy sis from the Show, returning for a second season, with her video series (drum roll)… The SamOffThaRecord Experience! Here’s the premiere of Season 2, “When Dreamers Collide.”
The SOTR Experience is back, and I wanted to share it with you!! Remember to live, create and Inspire!! Without further to do, I present to you my first episode of Season 2. I went to New York with my friend Justin of Hero The Band and we went on a few adventures. We connected with old friends, new friends and inhaled life and inspiration in the concrete jungle. The friends we connected with are amazing, talented musicians. Dmac – http://dmacheavymusic.com and one of my favorite NY bands of the moment The Freaky Baby Daddies- http://thefreakybabydaddies.bandcamp.com
Enough talking. Hit play!
Off the “Side Effex Of Make-Believe; divided for love’s sake” EP from Coultrain, this is “Kiss Of Death.” Don’t sleep. It’s a bit of an unusual take on R&B, but give it a good listen. Words by Aaron M. Frison. Music composed by Stoney Rock. Backing vocals by Dharma Jean. With a title like “Kiss Of Death,” of course the St. Louis crooner is singing pain – about a woman.
I’m gonna keep boom-bappin’ it…

Damn right. Preemo spends every day in the studio. Royce da 5’9 getting it in in the gym [nearly] every day to keep his body, mind and rhymes tight. Grown men do grown things. Grown men in Hip-Hop… might just save this thing. Pay attention to part 1 of this docu-series narrated by Bun B (of UGK) about the lives of the duo behind PRhyme and their giving life to their self-titled project giving new life to old school Hip-Hop style!
Whatcha’ll know about this “Street Certified” hit? Billy Danze and Lil Fame… and Maino… offer this “Welcome 2 Brooklyn” single for your streaming pleasure. Get it and the “Street Certified” EP via the links below (stream above).
“It’s a privilege to walk in someone else’s shoes. But it’s also a responsibility.”
Adam Sandler. Dustin Hoffman. Steve Buscemi… and Method Man. At the very least, this should be interesting.
(On the other hand, what is it with Sandler and gadgets in movies? Didn’t he already do “Click” with the ‘remote control of life’ thing?)
But yeah, besides the interesting cast. Discovering you could become anyone whose shoes you stepped into – as “The Cobbler” – whose shoes would you choose? Watch Sandler’s character’s choices (and lessons). Trailer promises a thought provoking, touching film.
Tell you what. Not much better could anyone else have done that “Nutmeg Freestyle” submitted to Soundcloud (posted earlier here) by Ludacris. But what’s better… there’s a video for that thing. Check it! They call this one “Ludaverses Vol. 2″ (hit the jump to see Vol. 1).
Film short for the art exhibit “Return of the Mecca: The Art of Islam and Hip-Hop.” Features excerpts from an interview with Yasiin Bey. Music by Oddisee. Artwork from the exhibit includes Jamel Shabazz, Ernie Paniccioli, B+, Cognito, Katina Parker, Coleman, Nema Etebar and more.
Off that “Boom Bap & Blues 2″ (Still Blue) project comes “The Background.” Dope. And got a video for the single – featuring some mighty fine sangin’ and lyricism by Jared over a Stat Diddy beat. Not to mention some fine eye candy!
Incredible ESPN docu-series 30 For 30 did an expo on former NFL phenom Randy Moss. Watch, and realize that Randy played in stadiums that could hold the population of his hometown nearly a hundred times over!
An exploration of Randy Moss’s incredible journey from isolated Rand, West Virginia, to NFL stardom.
Oh. And Rand University? Check out where it is. Man!
Young Chris with the new mixtape “The Network 3″ (The closure) – due out November 28, 2014. Produced by Cardiak, this “Legends Never Die” single (featuring Beanie Sigel and Guordan Banks) is off that mixtape. B Seeg still got bars; even after a 2 1/2 year bid!
Very cool: Madonna knew who Big Daddy Kane was back in the day; and was trying to school her fans on how great he was. Now, before you say Ms. “Like A Virgin” was on BDK’s jock… take a look-see at the pics from Madonna’s “Sex” book. She kinda let the K-A-N-E on her … um … ‘jock’ (wowww)!
Big Daddy Kane shares the story about how he met Madonna, and later posed for a racy spread with her and Naomi Campbell in the pop star’s “Sex” book.
Check out the fresh new visual by super dope lyrical Brand Nubian emcee Sadat X. He’s “On Fire” with this heater. Vocal features. Extra lyricals by Cormega. Lanelle Tyler filling in the crevices with touches of soul. This is off Sadat X’s forthcoming album “Never Left” (due out January 20, 2015).
Alright, the last viral hoverboard video was a hoax, and Tony Hawk was in on it. But this ish right here… apparently the real deal. Arx Pax has invented the world’s first hoverboard (called the “Hendo”). Four hover engines on the bottom of the Hendo Hoverboard help produce a magnetic field over a conductive surface like aluminum or copper, causing the futuristic machine to hover an inch above ground. Top speed: 15 mph (according to TMZ).
I believe this was a very slick way to get a Nas a capella for producers to rip from this video & do a remix to it. I see what VICE in Japan is doing.
In celebration of Nas’ 20th Anniversary of his debut album “Illmatic,” we got to hang out with him and record his a capella version of “The World is Yours” using our Music Video Recorders from Sony.
Whew, ! Well, A$AP Yams said it. And Lord Jamar pretty much seconded it. He kinda made some points. Ask yourself… Did 2014 mark the release of any instant classics in Hip-Hop? Name ‘em. Now, how many trash LPs can you name? Wow. You might not want to speak on it (too painful for Hip-Hop heads); but Lord Jamar (of Brand Nubian fame) will. Don’t worry. Watch.
But there is hope for the future… I’m trying to do my part…

Don’t have any idea w-t-f that means, Nick. But props on the high-speed, high-energy remix of that high-flying street-certified mix (and remix) staple by Dej Loaf. Click play and try this Nick Catchdubs Remix of “Try Me” … for the FREEness!

A shoe game, fashion and lifestyle video short, presented as a laid back look at Allen I’s coming up in Philly, being a b-baller, relating to fans, keeping it real with himself and his folks and more.
In his own words, Allen Iverson explains the details of the VILLA x Reebok Question Pump “A Day in Philly” including his love for style, Bentley’s, Friday’s and of course the city of Philadelphia.
Visuals for “Eyes Intro” – that kickoff heater from Reks’ LP “Eyes Watching God” (out now, linked below). Album produced entirely by Hazardis Soundz.
