Whose ready for a revist to ‘Loveland’ (hint: you’d better be, because your girl is)? This “King Of Loveland 2″ from Raheem DeVaughn has some newness (and remixes) but the proven formula is still in place. Get this and get your ‘quality together time’ in with somebody.
Heh heh… you know, Loso; we already posted video on the “cuffing season” thing. But this [extended] video right here, ninja… “The Soul Tape 3″ single has a “mini-movie” delivered to visualize Fabulous’ “Cuffin Season.”
Of course, our posting something means we think it is good and/or relevant… It’s an endorsement. And we don’t endorse just anything. But this endorsement of “Days Of Gray” – a mix by Mr. Sonny James – should be taken with a bit more weight because of who else says so. Turns out that Mr. Sonny James (aka DJ Statik) is #6 on DJ Jazzy Jeff’s “Your Favorite DJ’s Favorite Deejays” list! For real. You may start partying, knowing that Jeff (and JayForce.com) approves.

Producer M16 laying out another track on the “Black Hystori Project” mixtape for CyHi to run over. Done. This “3:16″ is perfection in the form of bars… Ear candy. Visuals don’t really feature eye candy, but dope nonetheless. Check the vid and verses. A wholly unholy spiritual experience.

A nice bunch of covers and conversions of Jill Scott jawns, curated and compiled by the soul selector DJ Rahdu. This “Honey Molasses” is ‘soundtrack of Spring’ indeed!
Jill Scott made a comment during her performance on VH1′s Storytellers about her music selection process that stuck with me – She said that even without her, the music has to have a story of it’s own for her to write to it. Apparently she picks them well; Jill has the uncanny ability to connect to numerous demographics, an uncommon skill in today’s stratified musical climate. “Honey Molasses” is a compilation of the artists that feel that Jill’s songs could somehow help tell their story.

This is a rebroadcast & now podcasted episode of Atlanta’s premier hip hop radio show that aired live Saturday night 2/22/14 from 10pm-1:00am EST on Atlanta’s 100,000 watt radio station WRFG 89.3 FM.
As we do every time on the radio we launched our ‘air assault’ with nothing but quality new & exclusive hip hop music then Carmen Breezy & Odell spoke on their experiences attending the Rick Ross album listening party at TreeSound Studios for his latest project ‘Mastermind’, & we were joined by a few special guests for interviews during the show.
This week music journalist & film director Rahiem Shabazz stopped by to talk about his new documentary called ‘Elementary Genocide’ that tackles the prison industrial complex problem & it’s wildly conspicuous path from the classroom to the jail cell.
Our second guest on the show was Brooklyn, New York hip hop artist BK Brasco. The Brownsville, Brooklyn native delivered some insight on his background, spoke with us about traveling the world while working with producer Timbaland & collaborating with artists like Pusha T, Mario, & Stacy Barthe while shedding more insight on his new project called “18th Floor Thompson Hotel”

Phil Beaudreau continues to impress me with his music ever since I’ve been following his work. In fact, this song ‘Anyway’ produced by Dawaun Parker off of Mr. Beaudreau’s new full-length project “Ether” that’s available now, I first heard in January of 2013. It’s about time the L.A. based singer dropped a visual clip to further propel awareness of his talent as supporters like myself have been playing his music on my radio show & posting various joints up on various websites. Nothing too crazy extravagant with this Charley Mac & Phil Beaudreau self-directed video but even in its minimalism, just like the song itself, it doesn’t take much to really hit home.
