Conway The Machine x The Alchemist – “Shoot Sideways” feat. ScHoolboy Q

In the streets or on the beach, I could kill ’em in the booth.

Ohhhh damn! Are you hearing that evil A-L-C beat come in?? That beat called for a track MONSTER, like the kind that fights Godzilla and tears up Tokyo every so often!

Oh, it’s Conway (and Q) coming to wreck? Say less! “Lulu” is on the way!

Tall Black Guy – “Dance Forever” / “The Return Of Here & Now” (EP)

Hope you are safely tucked away in your [Coronavirus-free] fortress full of good snacks and solitude… Hey, if you have kids or other folks staying with you, that solitude part is not a given. They may not allow you much solitude, being cooped up at home just the same as you. And it’s not like they can just go outside any old time. If the kids are in schools like these Atlanta kids over here, then schooling is now virtual; and the homework is still due!

Good news is that the artists and producers and deejays are realizing they shouldn’t leave us… without a dope beat to step to. Maybe driven by cabin fever or by a desire give us ease in troubled times. Either way, folks like TBG are getting out that work! Here in the form of re-released classics. This post features the two-track trip – “Dance Forever” and “The Return Of Here & Now.”

But take a twirl to another back-in-the-day EP from TBG: “8 Miles To Moenart” too (earlier post for that here).

Flawless Real Talk – “Can’t Stop” feat. Vchenay (Video)

“Every Second Matters.” Nobody knows that more than Flawless Real Talk. And that is why he’ll make every song on that EP count. Like this one. “Can’t Stop” looping this video. It’s a good look. So is Vchenay (rowwrrrr)!

DJ Kayslay – “Living Legend” feat. Jadakiss x Queen Latifah x Bun B (Video)

I built the ground that you walk on.
I taught you how to tilt your crown. Come on!

If seeing the lineup for this rhymefest did not make you wanna click play ASAP… maaaybeee you aren’t in the right place. Just saying. But stay if you wanna know what a “Living Legend” flows like. We got three examples right here for you – Jadakiss, Queen Latifah, and Bun B!

Note: If your response to seeing Queen Latifah as one of the emcees on this was, “Oh, she raps? Wonder what made her try that.” Then you get a pass. And a drag rag… to wipe that wetness from behind your ears… young’un (haha)!

This is the title track for an EP that DJ Kayslay has out now (linked below). But hold up. Before you go for that. Peep the visual. Golden Era bars! Plus, salute to Kay for ALL THAT THICK HONEYNESS in this video #YeezusWEST

TRIBEZ x Maniac – “Fire” feat. AG x El Da Sensei x Pawz One

I took the long route, straight from my Mom’s couch. Now I’m global.

Maybe everyone doesn’t feel this way, but there is something extra special about a gang of thorough emcees swinging on a beast of a beat and beating it the f**k down!! Just like the way AG, El Da Sensei, and Pawz One “Fire” on this track with TRIBEZ.

From the “Paragon” project (out now).

Fredo Pounds – “Windows” (Prod. By Pots & Pans) [Video]

There is only one thing not to like about this video… NOTHING! Everything is love! Even down to giving camera time, in the video, to the owner of the hood spot where he shot the video. I imagine they (Fredo Pounds, GrecTvFIlmz) envisioned how they could do the vid with footage shot in the store, approached the guy and told him of their plans, and dude was down; esp. with a shout for his biz, since it will likely get more visits as Fredo ‘Pounds’ the pavement (and the Internet ‘super highway’) for more visits for himself and GrecTvFIlmz. By all the “Windows” shopping they will be doing (e.g. promo work), everyone benefits! That’s how you do good BUSINESS people. Let the blessings that flow from your work bless others #RealLabor #RealFruit #ShareFruit #BLESS

Plus, dude got HELLA BARZ! Hmm. Should we follow all this ‘blessed’ talk with ‘hella’ though? Well, we’re doing it #BecauseHellaBlessed #ThatPartToo

Repek on the names Fredo Pounds for the spits that hit HARD, Pots & Pans for the beat that let a real emcee EAT, and GrecTvFIlmz for the film for him!

Buffalo, New York emcee, Fredo Pounds, just released a new mixtape titled “Intent To Distribute.” Check out this visual off of it for the song “Windows.”

“Intent To Distribute” is available now on all platforms.

One Vibe Africa Presents: Year Of Return (Trailer)

From the U.S. back to Kenya. Yes indeed.

You KNOW we are about travel abroad (e.g. from The States to overseas destinations). But this one hits home. As in Mother Africa, being home to ALL humanity and civilization. And this… this is epic. Of course, you know plenty of Sisters and Brothers who have declared that ‘one day’ they are going to make that pilgrimage back Home. Making it a big deal; maybe ‘too big’ a deal. But what if that ‘pilgrimage’ was less of a ‘trip’ to take. Like, let’s just say the family, the homies, the homegirls… are going to make it to an awesome event… and take in some of The Motherland while over that way. We could do that, right? We already do it for other festivals.

And like those other festivals, maybe we make it a yearly thing; or trips more often if we find things over there that draw us back.

Moving Madaraka Festival from Seattle back to Kenya signified the importance of not only arranging for individuals to travel back to Africa as it was with the case of Ghana’s year of return initiative, but getting significant events back to Africa and keeping them in Africa as a way to build a sustainable bridge allowing people of all backgrounds to travel to Africa to enjoy a festival of a lifetime, immerse themselves in the African culture, and inspire global change and collaboration towards mitigating climate change, which does not only threaten the climate but is an existential threat to our music, culture, and livelihood.
– One Vibe TV

Dope music and culture do it again. Let’s get together; for the community and the cause. It’s a Vibe. One Vibe Africa! Matter of fact, why not show love and SUPPORT right now: Cop the EP (linked below) #ForTheYouth #ForKisumu #ForKenya #ForOurWorld

Hit the jump for more on that. The fam Mazzi really blessed with the knowledge on this one. Knowledge and blessing right to mobile #Mobilize

Tall Black Guy x Chaka Khan – “I Know You, I Live You Re​-​Rub” feat. Karizma (Kaytronik)

Prediction: Every grown folk jam opportunity that is worth anything going into the spring and summer WILL HAVE THIS BUMPING! Once again, Sir TBG is hipping us to what’s gonna be the hippest; and we are putting it up for you. See how we look out for y’all.

And this is an extra tasty taste. All we got was notification and links in the inbox. But then we went looking, REALLY looking, and found a snippet of what is available for you to reserve now. Listen above, and imagine the barbecues, house sets, parties in the park, old-to-the-new swing outs, or just you rolling dolo on a perfect afternoon with these grooves on deck! Linking this below.

Don’t sleep. But if you sleep, make it a quick nap. Don’t be late, but if you are, be fashionably fly with it. And if you sleep on this AND you are late to the party… maaaaan… It’s alright. Just come groove & be chill with all the fly, well-rested ninjas and Honeyz. Ha!

I Know You, I Live You For Sure is the first single from Tall Black Guy’s Remixes & Tings Vol. 1 collection released in 2019. This single represents his interpretation of a Chaka Khan favorite, and adds a modern vibration to the 80’s classic that would even make Queen Chaka herself proud. In the arena of remixes, this record solidifies Tall Black Guy as one of the best to ever practice the craft. The pulsating drums, and Chaka’s vocals weaving through the sonic landscape leave the listener in a trance moving without thought, and sweating without effort. The extended version of this new classic is sure to be in every vinyl lovers rotation.

Lastly, Tall Black Guy teamed up with Karizma (Kaytronik) for the B Side. A remix of a remix has resulted in a new House Head favorite known as “Love Dub”. There’s genius in being able to capture the vastness in small things, and Kaytronik has done just that. “His house music ears heard a pocket, and he just did his thing”, says TBG about Kaytroinik’s first encounter with the track. Tall Black Guy says, “when I heard what he did with it, I knew it had to be on the single”. Now, the public has a chance to own what many will consider to be a part of music history.
