Wassup SOHH Familiaâ€"
How yâ€™all doinâ€™ today? I know last week I spoke a lot about resolutions that music industry types should make for OWE-EIGHT (as in, they OWE us consumers that GOOD-GOOD), but I didnâ€™t get into the resolutions that I WAS GOING TO MAKE.
I wonâ€™t bore you with the personal ones here but I did make related to Talkinâ€™ Videos. Throughout the course of me getting my feet wet in this hip-hop journalism industry, Iâ€™ve come across some artists who are more under the radar, than say, Jay-Z , Nas and 50, but are still more than able to deliver that good music that our ears have been starving for for a hot minute.
Soâ€¦ in a nutshellâ€¦ I resolve to highlight more music & videos from lyrically strong underground artists.
I think you all will agree that itâ€™s a good move to make for OWE-EIGHT.
To start off making good on my resolution, Iâ€™m giving props to a New York based artist named K Banger. Heâ€™s definitely a cool cat on a positive vibe. His album, Year of the K, is set to drop this year on Shaman Work and I definitely think itâ€™s going to be worth checking out.
Hereâ€™s the video for one of his tracks, â€œNatural Highâ€, featuring Triplebeam. The video was shot a few months ago, but I still felt that it was worth sharing with yâ€™all.
See, I like the fact that number one, the video has girls being sexy but not trashy (although shorty with the shades had me rolling with her little Vida Guerra impression), and the videoâ€™s fly without superfluity. And the track?
What more can I say? I'm definitely feeling the old-soul vibe. This sh*t is cold.
â€œTo hell with rims and wheels, attitude is everything, however you feelâ€. -- Snappers and trappers, relax & take notes.
Luckily for us, K is coming out with a new video in two weeks, and yours truly will be sitting down to interview him about the upcoming album Year of The K, and other future projects. However, if yâ€™all are feeling this dude, peep him at http://myspace.com/kbangermusic . While youâ€™re there, check out another dope track, â€œAll I Needâ€.
Craziness ensues on the next page...
Oh my goodnessâ€¦ What. The. F*ck????
I shouldâ€™ve bought this up before â€¦ I know Iâ€™m late with it, but itâ€™s STILL WORTH DISCUSSING!!
Did anyone catch this?
I canâ€™t evenâ€¦ manâ€¦ Iâ€™ma let Yâ€™ALL handle this one. Iâ€™m half laughing my @$$ off, and half pissed off. What's next, Soulja Boy toys in our cereal?!!?
Yâ€™all think Jimmyâ€™s behind this? Whether you think he is or not...
Itâ€™s just too damn coincidental that â€œMontanaâ€ rhymes with â€œSantanaâ€. Hmmâ€¦ I feel a â€œ2008 Breezy Awardâ€ nomination coming onâ€¦
Aight yâ€™all, Iâ€™m out for today. Hit me up here or by email, BreezyLovesYaBaby@hotmail.com.
I am looking for more underground artists to shed light on, so if you think your material is hot (and you have a video) holla at me at the above e-mail address.
WHO LOVES YA, BABY?
