Amerigo Gazaway Teases “The Miseducation Of Eunice Waymon” Mashup Mixtape (Video)

Amerigo Gazaway strikes mashes again! This time Nina Simone (born Eunice Waymon) and L-Boogie get the treatment. The result: We get the treat!

With his latest Soul Mates Project, Amerigo Gazaway imagines a studio session between The High Priestess of Soul, Nina Simone, and living legend, Lauryn Hill. Continuing the “collaborations that never were” theme of his previous releases, the producer seamlessly connects the dots between Hip-Hop and the genre’s predecessor, Soul. Watch the album’s teaser vid above, stream/download the first single “Feeling Good” below and look out for the full project in the coming weeks!

Lauryn Hill – “Black Rage” (Sketch)

lauryn-hill

An old sketch of Black Rage, done in my living room. Strange, the course of things. Peace for MO.
Ms. Lauryn Hill

Seems as though, like many timeless artists’ works, Lauryn already had material that applies to the troubles we face today. Case in point, this lyrical sketch (“Black Rage”) L Boogie had that codifies the happenings and fallout in Ferguson. Download a FREE copy and sit with it. Let it sink in.

Lauryn Hill – “Neurotic Society” (Compulsory Mix)

LaurynHill1

Lauryn Hill has something to say! So, she put this out. Think she cares about what her haters might think?

‘Opinions are like @ssholes, and most of them stink.’

Lauryn Hill, “Neurotic Society”

Nah, probably not. If you like this “Neurotic Society” (Compulsory Mix) you can pick it up at iTunes now. The song has much to say, but here’s what Lauryn has to say about the song and why its release was ‘compulsory’ to her:

‘Hello All:

Here is a link to a piece that I was ‘required’ to release immediately, by virtue of the impending legal deadline. I love being able to reach people directly, but in an ideal scenario, I would not have to rush the release of new music… but the message is still there. In light of Wednesday’s tragic loss (of former label mate Chris Kelly), I am even more pressed to YELL this to a multitude that may not understand the cost of allowing today’s unhealthy paradigms to remain unchecked!

Happy Birthday Roberta Flack (Video)

Not many female soul singers have had the impact that Roberta Flack has had on virtually all genres of music.  From hip hop to rock, Flack’s musical influence continues to have its place in popular tunes.  One of the nicest joints with Flack’s influence laced within can be seen above.  She and Lauryn Hill, along with The Fugees, transform a classic into a hip hop staple.

R&B: D’Angelo – “Black Hole Sun” (Cover)

D’Angelo has been missing for a while, and even though this is not a piece of his newest material, the releasing of any material from the soul singer is a good sign for his fans (including myself) who wants a return to the Brown Sugar and Voodoo days. According to ?uestlove this is an cover of SoundGarden’s classic “Black Hole Sun” recorded 8 years ago, but a part of warming the public up to D’Angelo as the new album is “97%” complete. We hear this all the time from artists who go on these long layoffs (see Lauryn Hill) and never get around to actually putting any material out that the people so desperately want to hear. However since ?uestlove is involved, this situation may provide a better outcome. Besides that, this is a pretty dope cover of a classic tune. Enjoy!
