Jill Scott Calls In To Speak On Her Recent Display Of ‘Skills On The Mic’ Going Viral (Video)

No need to apologize to me, at all, by the way, Jill. In fact, I want more… Wait what? No more shows for a while because WHAT?? Aw maaaan 🙁

Well, we understand. Tell Joe Budden all about it.

A Powerful Cast, Including Queen Latifah And Jill Scott, Tells The Story Of The Water Crisis In “Flint” (Trailer)

Coming to Lifetime Television in a few days. Cannot believe this went on… is likely still going on. And it is NOT fake news. Hell, it is hard to imagine that this is real life sometimes. But this trailer is teasing a movie that tells the story as it should; with passion and high emotion. People HAVE to CARE when this happens; made to care, and care enough to DO SOMETHING!

“Flint” is the gripping retelling of a crisis that shook a nation and shines a light on the whistleblowers who exposed the biggest environmental scandal of our generation. LeeAnne Walters (Betsy Brandt, “Breaking Bad”), Melissa Mays (Marin Ireland, “Sneaky Pete”) and Nayyirah Shariff (Jill Scott, “Steel Magnolias”) join forces after discovering that the drinking water in Flint, Michigan is contaminated, resulting in a slew of devastating medical problems for their families. When their claims go unheeded, they band together to expose the wrongdoings committed by their reckless, bean-counting government officials whose carelessness caused irrevocable harm to the lives of its residents. Golden Globe®-winner, Academy Award® and Grammy®-nominee Queen Latifah (“Star”) also stars and executive produces. World Premiere October 28 at 8/7c on Lifetime.

Sticks and stones might break my heart tonight…

Ache and vulnerability. Imagine a deep stretch to relieve a deeper pain. Click play and it’ll be like you’re sitting next to producer Om’Mas Keith as he’s listening to TDE’s SZA and Jill Scott vibe over his creation. Some Sunday alt/soul zen for you to enjoy.

DJ Rahdu – “Honey Molasses: Jill Scott Remixes and Covers” (Mixtape)


A nice bunch of covers and conversions of Jill Scott jawns, curated and compiled by the soul selector DJ Rahdu. This “Honey Molasses” is ‘soundtrack of Spring’ indeed!

Jill Scott made a comment during her performance on VH1’s Storytellers about her music selection process that stuck with me – She said that even without her, the music has to have a story of it’s own for her to write to it. Apparently she picks them well; Jill has the uncanny ability to connect to numerous demographics, an uncommon skill in today’s stratified musical climate. “Honey Molasses” is a compilation of the artists that feel that Jill’s songs could somehow help tell their story.


Robert Glasper feat. Jill Scott – “Calls” (Video)

Robert Glasper’s new single featuring Jill Scott entitled ‘Calls’ is one of my favorite new R&B/Soul joints over the past month or so. It’s not uncommon for me to replay a great song over & over again after hearing it for the very first time.  Robert Glasper & Jill Scott’s collaborative piece would be no exception to that process of mine.  The single will appear on Robert Glasper’s upcoming project “Black Radio 2” featuring many artists such as Dwele, Faith Evans, Common, Norah Jones, Snoop Dogg, & more due October 29th on Blue Note Records.  You can pre-order the album below, but for now check out the almost dream-like yet creative new video for ‘Calls’ above….

Jill Scott Promises Two New Albums: One For Everybody, The Other Offering the Unexpected (Video)

Above: Jill Scott, in speaking to the press after her 2013 Essence Musical Festival performance, promised all kinds of music goodness coming. Definitely something different. How different? With respect to keeping it moving in her music she remarks,

“I can’t stay in the same place or I’ll die.”

Jill shared some details about the two new albums she has been working on. The first, “The Lullaby,” will have something for everyone – for adults and even for baby at bedtime. The second album, for which she chose not to name publicly yet… or share details about features… is going to require that we trust her. It’s that ‘different’ she was speaking of.

Jill Scott – “Lovely Day” (Video)

There aren’t too many artists today that can remake a classic, put there own stamp on it, & it still comes out sounding just as good if not better than the original. One of my favorite soul singers from my hometown of Philly, Jill Scott, proves with this remake of Bill Withers’ 70’s classic why she’s one of the best of our generation. Speaking of generations, this video featuring the next generation of youngsters coming up in the world was released by Jill’s former label Hidden Beach as a part of the “Have A Lovely Day” campaign encouraging random acts of kindness and volunteerism.
