Thinking anything other than Trey Songz is on a roll and Tremaine The Album is gonna be a MONSTER… is plain ol’ hater talk! You just saw “Playboy” on here, now Songz is bringing out the “Animal” on y’all! Check out the video if you need proof, or if you like feasting your eyes on some thick Honey-coated Eye Candy!
Oh and the music’s pretty good, too.
Nice! Can’t tell us that you don’t pick up things from folks you are around. Traveling the globe for years with a Philly mixmaster like DJ Jazzy Jeff (check out all their Vinyl Destination stops posted on here) will let you pick up some stuff from pure osmosis. But this here, this is some training! Nice work from Skillz on this tribute mix to Philly he’s dubbed “Cheesesteaks & Tastykakes.” Dope!!
Did a live broadcast yesterday playing some of my favorite music from one of my favorite cities, Philly!! I have a special place in my heart for Philly, its like a 2nd home to me! A few people asked me for it, so here it is…. hope yall enjoy this jawn! Cheesesteaks and Tasty Kakes! Shout to all my Philly fam! #215
Does your father know you’re a bad, bad, bad girl… Girl I wanna make you mine!
Damn. No hesitation on the “Make You Mine” track. Eric Bellinger gets straight to the business! Trying to envision the video, g’wan rude b’woy on a bad g’yal… dutty wiiine! Up-tempo fun track ought to give you all some ideas for setting off the weekend sweating. Good choice of a single to drop from his “Eric B For President: Term 2” EP (out now). Maaaaybe you wanna grab a download. Just saying. The link’s right there.
Long Island’s (NY, USA) own Jon B was the subject of ‘Unsung’ in the above episode. Once again, great stuff… this time, on the forerunner for later ‘White chocolate’ crooners (like Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke) in the Soul/R&B genre. Produced and pushed to excellence by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds, Jonathan “Jon B” Buck had a good (albeit short-lived) run last century. Learn about his coming up and blowing up back in the day. Watch.
Man hellyeah, HELLYEAH! Miguel and DJ Premier HAD to do a video for that “2 Lovin U” banger! Straightforward shooting in its approach and its messaging. Not subtle at all. It’s like if Michael Jackson (RIP) consulted on the video and said put some it don’t matter if it’s “Black Or White” (or gay or straight or Muslim…) in there. Get into this and groove with it. You KNOW you want to!
The Weeknd has this new jawn “I Feel It Coming” that was produced by & features Daft Punk. Before hearing the song you already know it’s going to be the business, right? You are correct! Reward yourself by watching the visuals for the song.
This single came from the “Starboy” LP that dropped Novemeber 2016.
The Hip-Hop nation noted the passing of 20 years since the passing of Notorious B.I.G. And it seems appropos that the popularly recognized wifey of Biggie is given the mic and spotlight and time to speak on things. Got a project on hers and B.I.G.’s love (“The King & I,” due out May 19th) that she talks about, memories, Biggie’s legacy and more. Talks abut Lil Kim and Stevie J, too.
Meet New Orleans’ Tank and The Bangas — winner of the 2017 Tiny Desk Contest.
Now you know we are all about the PBS ‘Tiny Desk Concert’ series on here. But who knew there was a contest and that a winning group like this would get pulled into the national spotlight?? Easy bet that Tank and The Bangas will be hitting more than a few more stages as more and more folks see what they can do in this clip. Looks like they are having fun and that they can bring the fun to any function. Check ’em out!
Look, we KNOW Keisha’s song (“You”) keeps telling us he ‘picked the wrong one’ but… even when Remy evilly declares that he ‘picked’ the right one… even with the threatening torture tools… we do NOT care! Are you seeing how SEXY they are. And LL Cool Montana gets to run free, with stacks, in this video? Some guys get all the luck, and money, and Honeyz. Beats by H-Money & JV.
Mario with the grown & sexy music once again. “Let Me Help You” get ready for this visual experience. Get the phone, call your special someone, pour up a drink and sip as you press play. Play this a few times while you wait. Then, when your company gets there, get that ‘rub’ in like Mario and all the Honeyz were in that club scene.
So. You got 17 minutes to check out some new music from Kanye West. He did something with The-Dream, flipping a track orginally done up by The-Dream (“Bed”, yeah the J. Holiday jawn)… calling it “Bed Yeezy Season 5”… and it’s out there but in there at the same time. Hard to explain, which makes it par for the Kanye course, right?
Think of this as an extended play for some extended play at the crib. Call bae. Test drive the track.
Oh the problems of the “Playboy” Trey Songz. It’s not his fault, ladies. The game won’t let him out. Poor Trey. I wonder if one, or several, or ALL of those lovelies at the table will ‘take care’ of their host 😉
“Tremaine The Album” is due out March 24th.
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.
