Wowwww…DJ Premier is an executive producer of VH1’s “The Breaks” series AND he is scoring the entire series. BANGING!!
Oh, okay, this post is supposed to be about Miguel on the Preemo-produced “2 Lovin U” song. And how do we know it’s a track by Preemo? It’s the signature scratching baby. You hear those ‘damn’ samples scratched into the hook? Well, the rough, eventually shelved, early version of this song was called “Damned.” So, naturally, Preem scratched the ‘damn’ thing the f**k up like you know he do!
They decided to keep that element. Dope music was the result. Nice collaboration!
Damn if this ain’t the candy shop of banging blends! That “Sweetest Taboo” refixx though… all of ’em are probably as dope… curious about that “No Ordinary Love” one, too. Pricey, but tempting, and waiting for you over on the Bandcamp, it’s Paul Nice’s “Best Of Sade Blends.” CRAZY dope!
Yessir Mr. .Paak. It is always the simple things. Beautiful strings. Soulful singing. Sexy slimmies. Silky underwear… that ain’t theirs… wait what?! Nice. Plays out on the Jimmy Fallon stage like a modern day Aesop fable. Remember: Greedy greedy makes a hungry puppy, .Paak. Check out this live performance of the Knxwledge & Anderson .Paak collabo “What More Can I Say” (off their “Yes Lawd!” album).
Good programming here. This OTHERtone show on Pharrell’s iamOTHER channel. Check out this extended ‘preview’ clip. But hold up… Dr. Dre put out 90% of .Paak’s work (and we still don’t get ‘Detox’)?? Doesn’t even matter if we believe it or not, it’s just a dope thing to say.
For the first OTHERtone episode of 2017, Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener are joined by Anderson Paak. Tune in on Beats 1 every other Sunday at 12PM PT / 3PM ET.
Honestly I’m not tripping over Chrisette Michele performing for Trump either way. I’m indifferent. I’m also indifferent on Spike Lee’s move

Stevie being the genius that gave us “Superstition” is enough. But seeing him do it live… Okay, that’s incredible; and enough, to be certain. But what will make your Sunday and New Year wonderful is that Stevie Wonder rocked ‘Sesame Street’ live with that joint!
It was like a funk & soul clinic for the kids: Talk about a Children’s Television Workshop!
Another “ArtScience” live performance gem from the in-studio set Robert Glasper Experiment did with DJ Aaron Byrd. This is “Find You” on KCRW.
(Now… you gotta read that last text block like some classic NPR radio intro ish. And if you don’t listen NPR, you should try it out. Some dope music featured and opportunities to expand await.)
Grammy award-winning jazz fusion group Robert Glasper Experiment doing “Day To Day” (off “ArtScience”) live for KCRW. Studio session dopeness. Accompanied by DJ Aaron Byrd. Turntablism adding that Hip-Hop finish. The Culture on behavior here is beautiful. NPR does it again!
DJ Yogi has cheffed y’all up a quality blend of TI… Scarface… Quad City DJs, 69 Boyz & K-Nock… Aretha Franklin… Tears For Fears… Sade… Big Sean… and… and… some more! Is it Hip-Hop, Soul, Christmas, Gospel, Twerk, Bass music or what?? Well… YES!
The Brunch Mix goes all over the place like runny eggs.

Hip-Hop’s eclectic is seen here performing “Redbone” live on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Check out Childish Gambino, outside his Ern role, going alternative with the stage show.
Any YouTube search for Ashanti videos from back in the Murder Inc. heyday will have you realizing, “Hey, Ashanti was pretty damn HOT!” But time touches us all with the wobble and wrinkle wand. True that true beauty never fades, but the sizzling hot sexy Ashanti we knew from the Golden Era into the turn of the 21st Century… that face, that body, that syrupy voice all epitomizing ultimate sex appeal… She can’t have all that still popping, right?
Well, hell yes she can! Press play to watch a piece of her live on stage in The Chi. Looking soooo delicious you want her for ummm… lunch. With noontime Honey. Enjoy!
‘The tool to make your body lose control…’ Really, Bilal? That’s how you’re doing it? Well, play on playa. Listen up, ladies: R&B B got something for ya! Something on a beat produced by Adrian Younge; featuring Big K.R.I.T. Now play with that “Pleasure Toy” while you’re thinking about stuffing. Video above for the single off “In Another Life” (out now). We posted on the single and the LP a while back. Linked below for your convenience and revisitation.
Off the album “Here” by Alicia Keys (still makeup-less in this vid; still lovely as ever), this is “Blended Family” (featuring A$AP Rocky). An incredibly real feel of love-in-spite-of coming from Alicia who’s coming from a genuine place with it. You probably know the Swizz–Alicia–Mashonda situation…went from the worst mashed up situation to a more-than-cordial one. The vid is well worth the watch. And the album, likely worth the cop.
Artists should be open in some way that gets fans open about them; but some don’t open up a lot. Others go full Yeezy with the openness. Ha!
But Jhenè Aiko is sharing in this documentary at a level that falls comfortably within that range; even when talking about the ‘uncomfortable’ aspects of her life and career. Watch this engaging, albeit short, documentary feature on Jhenè.

C. Breezy delivered the nice visuals to what was nothing short of an instant summer hit. Posted the embed stream for this “Grass Ain’t Greener” earlier, but now the iTunes link is below to go with the video above.
