The Robert Glasper Trio x Dres (Of Black Sheep) – “Just Cause”

Here it is. Very short, but so sweet. Dres goes in as The Robert Glasper Trio grooves… you know, “Just Cause.”

Just Cause I’m a huge fan of Robert Glasper’s work.. Just Cause his live version of “The Worst” is just an insanely dope piece of work.. Just Cause I play it all the damn time.. Just Cause I thought it would be really cool to put a beat under it and rhyme on it… Just Cause I thought everyone would appreciate the sentiment… I present… Just Cause.

Sidney Max – “Angry Birds Friends: Here Come the Birds” feat. Dres (Prod. By DJ Premier) [Video]

Awwwww, this is beyond adorable! Blessed enough to have got on Dres’ (of Black Sheep) Facebook friend list, I caught wind of every tidbit of news on the development of this Sidney Max project. Sidney is Dres’ son; and Daddy’s got his boy coloring inside the Hip-Hop lines beautifully with this “Here Come the Birds” (produced by DJ Premier). This is wonderful on so many levels… You can’t debate it!

Dres – “Propagation” (Video)

“You’ll never hear of Black cops that beat and murder white boys.”

To even conceptualize a father to son convo as a theme for a video is dope. Videos with family, passing on wisdom and love at the center have no doubt been a part of Hip-Hop’s nobler self; but few with as timely a message to share. Need this. After the sadness and frustration felt when Killer Mike told us he was kicked on his ass and feared for his sons’ lives in the wake of the Ferguson (Missouri, USA) Grand Jury announcement – America’s injustice system at its finest – here is Dres (of Black Sheep) passing on powerful words that his son needs to hear to make his way in this country (world). “Propagation” of positivity – father to son, Dres to you, Hip-Hop to us all.

Thank you, D-R-E-S. This is Hip-Hop.

“I love a hater. I hug ’em now and hurt ’em later!” – Dres

Yes! Primo has another ‘Bars in the Booth’ session out. This time Dres (D-R-E-S) got in the booth, got comfortable…destroyed it. This is Hip-Hop: A DJ and an emcee moving the crowd (this includes you) and melting mics. We got the video above. The proof and the truth.

“Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on ‘Bars in the Booth.’ He killed it. We got more ‘Bars in the Booth’ coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!”

ATCQ + Black Sheep + ST 2 Lettaz is a combo Original Mattress Co. says should not be slept on. Okay.

EvitaN (Jarobi x Dres) – “Euphoric” (Prod. by Danimal) feat. Craig G [Video]

Banging! Banging! Banging! “Euphoric” is a banger of EvitaN’s “Speed of Life” album. Man, this is old school keeping it true. Check out true school vets Jarobi (of A Tribe Called Quest) and Dres (of Black Sheep) teaming up once again as EvitaN (that’s ‘Native’ turned around, for those who might’ve missed that… as in Native Tongues flipping it). Craig G (Juice Crew!) is along for this lyrical joyride on the Danimal track. Nice! Mr. Complex directs this video – a Hip-Hop take on “Trading Places” (great movie)!

Evitan (Jarobi x Dres)- “Hot Damn” (Video)

EvitaN (Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest and Dres of Black Sheep) are keeping it moving with another fresh joint. “Hot Damn” actually combines elements of old anthems from each of their groups, ATCQ and Black Sheep. This is how we take the old to the new / the new to the old / the old to the new. They are keeping that “Native” tongue tradition alive for 2012 as “Evitan” in reverse. The video for “Hot Damn” (above) – which weaves in live show footage – was directed and edited by Omar Akil. That’s wasup…

EvitaN (Dres x Jarobi) – “3 Kings” (featuring Sadat X) [Video]

Track veterans Jarobi (of A Tribe Called Quest) and Dres (of Black Sheep) have collectivized, forming a new Hip-Hop entity known as evitaN. Here, they invited Sadat X (of Brand Nubian) to help bless a sick Will Tell boom bap track. The result…HISTORY! They call the track “3 Kings” and the video does justice to the royal concept. See for yourself!

Evitan (Dres x Jarobi) – “P.T.I. (Occupy Wall Street)” [Video]

The homie Jarobi of A Tribe Called Quest & Dres formerly of Black Sheep have formed a new group together called Evitan. Evitan spelled backwards is “Native” which is short for the iconic Native Tongues movement they were all a part of. “Occupy Wall Street” is the first single from their forthcoming, soon-to-be-titled album, which will be released in 2012. The video was shot on location at the Occupy Wall Street protests in New York City.
