NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Smif N Wessun (Video)

Not like they don’t belong on this forum. They do. Just did not expect to see them featured in their own Tiny Desk Concert. Very glad Smif-N-Wessun are though!

Brooklyn-bred Hip-Hop duo Smif-N-Wessun – consisting of partners in rhyme, Steele and Tek – illuminated the Tiny Desk with their signature, 80-proof poetry: straight, no chaser. Their music, inspired by their gritty and pre-gentrified Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville neighborhoods, offers the vocabulary of veterans who survived the grimy streets. These original members of the Duck Down Records group Boot Camp Clik represent quintessential ’90s true-school Hip-Hop from the bedrock, when Timberland boots were standard issue. Backing Steele and Tek for the first time is D.C.’s own Black Alley band.
Abby O’Neill, NPR Music

(That “One Time” they wrapped with sounds extra nice.)

Sean Price – “S.E.A.N.”

One of my favorite emcees from Brooklyn, Sean Price is back freestylin’ over the beat from the classic Beanie Sigel song “The Truth” that Kanye West produced.  It’s STILL ‘The Truth’ but it’s all ‘S.E.A.N.’ !  It’s a definite appetizer to get heads ready for his upcoming project ‘Songs In The Key Of Price.’ I can dig it! P!!!!!!!!

Sean Price / Random Axe Interview & Performance (Video)

Sean P talks about why he is the best rapper in Brooklyn and whats next for him musically then a cut to his group Random Axe performing my favorite song from the album Chewbacca (deuce deuce poppa not rockin ya shoes proppa).

Random Axe – ‘Random Call’ (Video)

This is one of my favorite songs from the brand new Random Axe album that just dropped featuring the talents of Sean Price, Guilty Simpson, & Black Milk. When I first heard this song I had it on repeat for about 5 or 6 times in a row. Duck Down wasted no time getting a video out for this banger too! From Detroit To Brooklyn….Ain’t nothing like that REAL hip hop music!

Random Axe – ‘Random Call’

Boot Camp Clik – ‘Hate All You Want’ (Video)

I’m not mad at the idea of artists going back & releasing videos for songs that came out a while ago. It actually breathes new life into a previous project. Unlike Nice & Smooth’s video for ‘No Delayin’ that was shot with entirely new footage, this joint seems like it was shot a while ago & was recently unearthed & edited. This joint called ‘Hate All You Want’ was from the their 2006 album ‘The Last Stand’ but I have a feeling this won’t be the last video the BCC drops for us in the coming months. I used to play the ‘He Gave His Life’ track alot on my radio show from the ‘Last Stand’ album so hopefully they’ll shoot a video or unearth one for that banger too.


Skyzoo & Illmind – #AllAboutThat (Video)

Skyzoo & Illmind unleashed this video called #AllAboutThat from what we collectively believed was  one of the best albums of 2010…..Live From The TapeDeck.
