Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Soul Right” (Video)

I can’t hold no grudges. My hands is too busy catching blessings.

BLESS!

So Freddie just dropped off all kinds of fire for Vevo when he fell through to do some Ctrl recording, huh? Check that. He performed that for The Nation! Us. We are The Nation. The Hip-Hop Nation! Click above and get your “Soul Right.”

Wanna know where the hotness is? Go to the fans. The Hip-Hop outlet Ambrosia For Heads did just that when they asked people to assess last year’s best Hip-Hop discs. The results rang out: Freddie Gibbs’ album with Madlib, ‘Bandana,’ ruled. The Midwest rapper’s collab with the SoCal producer is a great mix of perspectives. Gibbs’ street attitude and natural grit meshes well with Mad’s cinematic sounds (check “Massage Seats”) and deep beats. A followup to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Piñata’ disc, ‘Bandana’ is a powerhouse that swerves from lane to lane without fretting about its exact location at any given moment. “I’m not no boom-bap rapper or whatever the f**k that sh*t is,” Freddie recently told GQ. “I’m not a trap rapper. You can’t really put me in a box, man.” ‘Cept for that one in our Brooklyn studio. Gibbs said yes to Vevo’s Ctrl invite, and came to crush “Cataracts” and “Soul Right,” two of Bandana’s hottest tracks. Feel free to share ’em.

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Cataracts” (Video)

Whatever Gibbs has got going on while trying to make it through this Coronaviral Era now thrust upon us, I think he will be okay. And we will be okay. His ‘lock in’ at the house is probably not as much a lock down as a chill out (because smoking on that good ‘script’). But before going in, Crtl let the man in to bless their mic and spit on his Rx for them “Cataracts” (HA)!

How Producer Scott Storch Made Millions Of Dollars And Squandered His Fortune (Documentary)

Nothing like a morning jaunt, and a joint, with the dogs. Ahhhh, the life of Scott Storch… now. It hasn’t always been sunshine and roses for the super-producer. Yep, this half-hour Vevo documentary covers a lot of that life. And what a life it has been thus far!

There are few music careers like that of Scott Storch. The esteemed producer-songwriter made his initial mark in Philly as a key member of The Roots. A great start, but just the beginning of a wild ride to the top. Storch’s way with crafting hooks and shaping melodies, as well as his knack of being in the right place at the right time, brought him to Cali, where the inspired keyboardist began shaping the sound of pop, Hip-Hop, and R&B, working with an array of artists that stretch from Dr. Dre and Beyoncé to 50 Cent to Christina Aguilera. The hits rolled in, the money stacked up, and creativity exploded. A big chunk of the 2000’s best music has Storch’s name on it. Then, through a string of drug troubles and monetary woes, he dropped out of sight for a decade. It was the music’s loss. Now he’s back in action, and our intimate profile ‘Still Storch’ paints a portrait of a man who’s seen it all and is still cranking out great tracks. These days his studio hosts artists such as French Montana, Chris Brown, A$AP Ferg as well as talented newcomers like Kyle and Thutmose. A victory come-back. For Hip-Hop fans, ‘Still, Storch’ is a must-see mini-doc, an extended look at talent, addiction, and an unyielding passion for artistry.

Maaaan, just hearing him play bits from all the mega-hit beats he did… whew!

Evidence – “Throw It All Away” / “Jim Dean” (Live Performance) [Video]

Evo at Vevo doing his damn thing tho’! Two joints, live, right in the booth, from his latest project, “Weather Or Not.” Rock with this.

Revered by fans since his days in Dilated Peoples, during the last two decades Evidence has been steadily building an enviable rep in the game. On his own, he’s dropped the acclaimed solo discs ‘The Weatherman’ and ‘Cats & Dogs,’ which included features as diverse as Aloe Black and Raekwon. Now he’s back with perhaps his strongest set of tracks yet. ‘Weather Or Not’ on Rhymesayers boasts strong lyrics and irresistible beats provided by a handful of producers including Nottz, The Alchemist, DJ Babu and DJ Premier. From “Jim Dean” to “10,000 Hours,” it’s a must-hear. We’re celebrating its arrival by having Evidence in our NYC studio, spitting “Throw It All Away” and “Jim Dean” and chatting with Vevo’s Jayson Rodriguez about putting the album together.
