R&B/Soul: The Foreign Exchange – “Shelter”

You already know the math: Phonte + Nicolay = The Foreign Exchange = Dope Music Every Time! And this time out is no exception. If you have checked out their latest project, you already know. If not, you already know you are in for a treat… when you play “Hide & Seek” (compilation LP)… in particular, that “Shelter” single. Nice!

R&B: Victor Oladipo – “Song For You”

Whaaaat? Okay, basketball players have been trying to get into the rap game for decades. And at least recently, a couple have put out some decent off-court, on-mic work. But a b-baller doing R&B? Nah, you have not heard that… yet. But Victor Oladipo (V.O.), how are you coming out of the gate singing a Donny Hathaway jam maaaaan. You trying to be a R&Baller all o’ sudden? Ha!

(Not bad actually. Click and listen for yourself.)

The Game – “Heaven 4 A Gangsta” (TuPac Tribute)

Tupac was murdered 21 years ago… and we’re still talking UNSOLVED mystery. We just posted on the A&E look into the lives and passing of Pac and Biggie. Think law enforcement is still following up on leads though? Don’t answer. Just don’t.

A nation, the Hip-Hop Nation, still mourns Pac’s loss. But the music lives on; especially when a worthy emcee turns in a tribute. Enter The Game. Hearing this will likely make you REALLY think on it: Is there a “Heaven 4 A Gangsta” (song from the A&E documentary series, “Who Killed Tupac?”)? Gotta be. The Game sent this one up from the booth!

R&B/Soul: Skye Morales – “New One” (Video)

Smooth and mellow melancholy musings about what dude lost… If there is any truth to some dude losing Sky Morales to a “New One”… maaan, you’re an idiot. She is mos def a cutie with some skills that are going to pay some bills. Plus, it’s fall. If you gotta be cuffed down for the cold weather Netflix-and-chill, staying with Skye would be a hot deal!

THURZ with leak from the soon-to-be latest LP (entitled “Party In My Living Room”). This is “Iconic”… the song and the video… Rawness!

Jorja Smith – “On My Mind” (Prod. By Preditah) [Video]

Jorja Smith & Preditah with some UK club jamming dance tunes. Jorja’s gotta tell you about what’s “On My Mind” (um… her mind). Letting it ooze out over the Preditah-produced groove, with soul, and some bop. Nice stuff.

But let her friends tell it: It’s a bit too singy. *Sigh* Haters. Baahahaaa!

Snoop Dogg – “What Is This?” feat. October London (Prod. By Nottz)

Ha! Uncle Snoop called the track ‘funky’… then went to work making it even stankier for producer Nottz. Plus, October London freak-a-leaking the sing-songy hook… “What Is This?” Well… DOPE! That’s what it is pimpin’!

R&B/Soul: Jayd Ink – “DarkSkin” (Video)

That bathtub water probably tastes like the sweetest mocha latte ever… at least, looking lustfully at this dreamy coffee-n-creamy video it would seem.

Ivan Ave – “Running Shoes” (Prod. By Kiefer x Like)

Okay. A good look for Jakarta Records definitely. Norwegian emcee Ivan Ave laced ’em up and ran the track that Kiefer and Like (of Pac Div) laid down. Dope!

Escapism takes many forms, but we all share the impulse of running from our situation once in a while. On his new single, Ivan sings a love song to his “Running Shoes,” while dodging problems with every stride. Face all your problems right now or lace up and escape with him on this Kiefer & Like produced cut off Ave’s forthcoming “Every Eye” LP.
