Okay, can we talk about the scenery for a sec? That breathtaking waterfall… falling all over that sumptuous Claudia that you will all fall for (or is that just us)? That needing to be said, “Gone” (produced by Eben D’Amico) is a serious piece of eclectic work aimed directly at the soul. The video, shot low grade with a high concept, is an excellent delivery vehicle. May as well call this new Tiombe Lockhart single a must get. And if you feel that way, go get it…here.
Hey. Don’t sleep on National Public Radio’s Tiny Desk Concert series. In this one, the Robert Glasper gets the Marsha Ambrosius to join him in moving listeners’ souls with a live-on-air-band-backed-in-the-corner-packed performance of “Trust” – right from the start! Yeah. We got that… and Glasper giving you (much) more on the video embedded above.

Episode 4. Season 2. Vinyl Destination. Let’s go… to Moscow!
The latest Vinyl Destination(s) for DJ Jazzy Jeff and the crew… overseas to Russia and Bulgaria. Special thing about this leg of the journey: DJ Ferno taking his first trip outside of North America. Stacking the passport stamps. Starting with some hard partying Russkies. Very not bad.
Oh… did you say something? Something about missing Episode 3. Nah, never that. Check after the jump.

“A Place Called Loveland” by Raheem DeVaughn is stacked full of hot R&B tracks. This one, brought to your screen by director James “Kraze” Billings, is no exception. Speaking of stacked… baby in the video had us crying tears of joy!
This is a rebroadcast episode of Atlanta’s premier hip hop radio show that aired live on Saturday night 2/8/14 from 10pm-1:00am EST on the 100,000 watt radio station WRFG 89.3 FM just 1 day after the birthday of celebrated Detroit producer & emcee James Yancey a.k.a. J. Dilla.
It was fitting that our special guest on the show this week was none other than Phife Dawg, formerly of legendary hip hop group ‘A Tribe Called Quest.’ Phife & producer DJ Rasta Root spoke on the making of the new single & video for #Dear Dilla that celebrates the life of the fallen hip hop icon. We also discuss Phife’s upcoming album “MuttyMorphosis” which is due later this year.
In addition to plenty of brand new & exclusive music and quality bangers, this turned out to be another stellar edition of the ‘Beatz & Lyrics Show with Jayforce!

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.

Ben Official with the visual for a classic lover’s lamentation entitled “I’m Sorry” (produced by Authentik Made). This mid-tempo melancholy melody is a what-I-wish-we-were profession of love, but ultimately declares he is better off… they are better off… apart. Mm mm mm. Sometimes it’s a good thing to be a little sad. We’ve all Ben there.
Now you KNOW we love some Dynasty on here. Makes sense that we might enjoy at least some of what she likes as far as music goes, right? So, when her recommendation to peep Melodie Nicholson – “Right This Time” – hit my Facebook newstream, whatchu think I did? Damn right I took a listen. I think she got it right…
Ah. La Musica de Harry Fraud meets Sam Smith’s smell of teen spirit (he had that track entitled “Nirvana”… get it?) to create some futuristic funk. Reworking the original Smith track his forthcoming “Nirvana” EP that he’s bringing from the UK to the USA January 28, 2014.
Gary Clark, Jr. with some soulful harmonizing, interlaced with the right touch of Big K.R.I.T. lyricism in a remix of “Blak And Blu” from the upcoming mixtape.
Vinyl Destination | Ep. 1 In Charlotte And Chicago, Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)
YES! Vinyl Destination with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Skillz and the crew is back mannn! First stop: Charlotte (North Carolina). Some came for the CIAA Basketball Tournament. Everybody came to party! The whole episode is tremendous viewing, but we lose it starting at 3:50.
They have younger events at CIAA… but if a younger person gets a chance to kinda come to one of those classic… you know, 90s parties… they probably gone see their mom… you know, rocking HARD… in a tight fit dress… that she wore when she met your dad… that she really can’t fit anymore… but she still wears it. Might be a little traumatic.
- DJ Jazzy Jeff
