SZA – “Broken Clocks” (Video)

Besides “sexy”… the word to describe this vid is “ohhhhhhh!” It all makes sense by the end; the very end. Now, you do get the benefit of seeing SZA singing sultrily and slinking around to the beat throughout the jawn; getting her ‘summer camp sensual’ on. But the TWIST ending… Watch.

Jhené Aiko – “Never Call Me” feat. Kurupt (Slauson Hills Edition) [Video]

Hmm… turns out that that Jhene Aiko visual for “Never Call Me” was the ‘Asian Version’… Apparently, there is a hooded out ‘Slauson Hills Version.’ And don’t even front like you can wait to see it. Click the play button and quit playing!

(Watch for cameos from Nipsey Hussle and more.)

Jhené Aiko – “Never Call Me” feat. Kurupt (Video)

Jesse Boykins III – Earth Girls (Prod. By DJ Dahi) [Video]

What the…? Is that Rosario Dawson in there?! Okay, you can go get that “Bartholomew” album (see link below) after watching this “Earth Girls” video once. But er… we might stick around and watch again… just to confirm that that was indeed the sultry Ms. Dawson. Her presence and essence goes with the vibe of the music. Soulful. Good work and salute to Jesse Boykins III and DJ Dahi!

Torii Wolf x DJ Premier – “Silent Crow”

Acting like Torii Wolf and DJ Premier don’t make dope Alt-Hip-Hop?? Please. Don’t even TRY it! But in case someone around wants to play the ‘hater’ role, play this “Silent Crow” and let ’em know Torii & Preemo are not having it. Not today. Today… we chill.

TORII WOLF X DJ PREMIER – SILENT CROW

Mereba – “Black Truck”

Okay. Respect due. Mereba checks all the relevant boxes – repping the A-T-L well, putting out the good tunes, down with the majorest of majors (i.e. Interscope) out West. Nothing left to do but check out “Black Truck” and hear what that do, too.

Sango – “Sweet Holy Honey” feat. Xavier Omär (Video)

Sango’s video for “Sweet Holy Honey” (featuring Xavier Omär) will have you thinking that the title should be subtitled with something like… “A Surreal Cinematic Experience.” Because that is what it is. Enjoy!

The Code – “Muse” / “About Ava” feat. Cassie

Looked it up again to be sure. A “Muse” is “the source of inspiration for a creative artist.” Meet UK’s creative artist The Code (if you are not yet familiar) via this latest work, featuring the VERY ‘inspirational’ Cassie. Not saying she actually IS the “Muse” for this song. But it’s great music, what or whoever inspired it! Off the forthcoming “Paramount” LP.

Dave B. – “Pearl” (EP)

Soulful, happy, funky Alt-Hop. That’s the best we can do to really categorize and capture the essence of “Pearl” in words. You need to hear it to get it. And once you hear a bit (sample stream below), you might wanna get it (linked below).

DAVE B. – PEARL (EP)

Kehlani – “Already Won”

So, the cutie Kehlani “Already Won” that part (that part)! But the singing though. So smooth, so “warm.” Check out her latest here.

Gaming/Relationships: Man Marries The Anime Character Of His Dreams (Video)

Hmm… file this under, “Naaaah, not crazy at all. Do you, um, player!”

Japanese adult game developer Hibiki Works recently performed a VR assisted wedding between a man and the anime character of his dreams. The wedding – which actually took place in a chapel in Tokyo – was part of Hibiki Works’ promotion of their upcoming game “Niizuma: Lovely x Cation.”
– Vocativ

So, question: With the virtual wife concept… Would that be ‘death do them part’ after losing one life on the video game; or is this an ‘all lives matter’ situation (like, you have to stay with the new virtual spouse through all your game lives).

Sunni Colón – “Little Things” (Prod. By Kaytranada)

Dope! That boom bap slap start, with that slight dirtied-up crackle in the track… might have you ready to click off… but then you hear the jazzy vocals come in incredibly to tie the whole thing down! Nah, you aren’t going anywhere. Turns out all the elements contribute to the enjoyment of this. All those things, all those “Little Things”… matter.

Funk/Soul: Thundercat – “Show You The Way” feat. Michael McDonald x Kenny Loggins (Video)

Okay… Thundercat is OUT THERE! See, “Them Changes” was already… er, eccentric. Well, this is a sequel to that; and it is CRAY in the best way. Like features (and actual appearances) from Doobie Bro Michael McDonald and Kenny “Footloose” Loggins. REALLY the best way. Awesomeness from the ’80s travels to the future to continue our tale of the armless Samurai.

(Yeah. Just watch!)

SUPERCAT – DRUNK (ALBUM OUT NOW)

Alternative/Soul: Iman Omari – “Kama Sutra”

This Iman Omari vibe is one you have to jump into and feel your way around to get. You are not going to ‘nod to it and catch a flow’… song just ain’t built that way. Truly an alternative jazzy approach for his “Kama Sutra” jawn. Click play and get to getting into it. Pre-order link for the album below.
