J. Keys – “Guilty” (Prod. By Cultural Bastards) [Video]


Shout to Gerald O for hipping me to this. Follow my bro on his show’s Twitter, IG, FB, all that. Even the website is ATLREMIX. Same name across all platforms – that’s the key. And I really feel this way, but today, it’s about more than dope handles and doper people… It’s about more KEYS! Like MORE music from J. Keys! You can bet money there’ll be at least one song of his on ATLREMIX every weekend. Maybe even this “Guilty” jawn, since the visuals are giving it even more life.

J. Keys drops the visual entitled “Guilty,” a scathing commentary on the American criminal justice system.

Produced by the Cultural Bastards, Keys said “They bodied it on the track, as soon I heard the sample I knew instantly what the song was going to be about.” For Keys it was only a matter of how to say it.

So, who’s hitting rewind a third time? Me! I am “Guilty” fam #BecauseBANGER

“Charm City Kings” Hits The Streets… And The Screens… This Coming April (Trailer)

Okay. OKAY!

Meek Mill making it work in the movies. Salute. And this “Charm City Kings” looks epic. Teaser showing snips from what should be a wild story to tell. Check it…

Fourteen-year-old Mouse (Jahi Di’Allo Winston) desperately wants to join the Midnight Clique, an infamous group of Baltimore dirt-bike riders who rule the summertime streets. His older brother, Stro, was their top rider before his tragic death—a loss that consumes Mouse as much as his passion for bikes. Mouse’s mom (Teyonah Parris) and his police mentor, Detective Rivers (William Catlett), work overtime to help the charismatic teen reach his full potential, but when the Midnight Clique’s leader, Blax (Meek Mill), takes the boy under his wing, the lure of revving his own dirt bike skids Mouse toward a road way past the straight and narrow.

Puerto Rican director Angel Manuel Soto (Dinner Party, 2018 New Frontier VR experience at Sundance Film Festival) returns to the Festival with this electric feature that pulses with teen gusto, thumping Hip-Hop, and amazing bike tricks. Soto directs an astonishingly talented cast to create a narrative bursting with pitch-perfect performances and intoxicating emotion. Based on the documentary 12 O’Clock Boys, Charm City Kings is one boy’s unforgettable journey toward manhood.

(AND Jada and Will Smith are helming this as Executive Producers?? Oh heeeell yeah!)

Homeboy Sandman – “Dusty” (Album)

Yep, Homeboy Sandman definitely has a [relatively] new LP out. And you know it’s a banger! When has the Homeboy ever not delivered? #Dusty #ButTheFlowsAreStillClean

This is the latest chapter for one of the most storied underground rappers of his generation. A versatile talent who has checked every last box: Unsigned Hype in The Source, Chairman’s Choice in the XXL. Rolling Stone hailed his songs as dense and word-drunk, spilling past the margins, demanding repeat listens as he re-works rap forms and functions into something truly personal.” Pitchfork said that in the all-star game of the new subterranean, “he is the guy with flawless fundamentals, wearing his socks high and his cleats sharp and polished.” His solo catalogue is sterling and over the last two years he’s mastered the group dynamic in tandem with fellow legends Aesop Rock and later, a brilliant psychedelic slab done in union with Edan.
