I can’t believe I forgot to post up the new video from the homies Y-O and Thurzday when it first dropped, but here’s “Windows” if you haven’t seen it. I’m not sure if it’s official yet, but a certain group might be coming to a certain city and a certain local DJ might be performing with them in a few weeks…stay tuned.
Here’s U-N-I’s promo video for their hat collaboration with Hella Tight as well:
Hahahah, excellent visuals for the new single from the homies Thurz and Y-O off their brand new A Love Supreme 2.0 release. I’ve talked about the accompanying documentary for this project a few times because it features yours truly on narration, but objectively speaking, seriously, you have to cop. Not only do you get all this dope music but you get the full A Love Supreme documentary?
Anyone who follows TAOD knows that last week marked Seattle’s annual music & arts festival, Bumbershoot. J. Moore and I have hosted the main stage hip-hop show for the past few years, but this time around, I had the special pleasure of not only being on the “Bumberboard” that helped plan the entire event, but I even got to perform by DJ’ing for the homies U-N-I.
Thurzday and Y-O took to the Fisher Green Stage (alongside artists like Mayer Hawthorne, Janelle Monae, De La Soul, and more) to rock in front of an enthusiastic crowd. We ran through a high energy set including tracks like “Cali Soul,” “Beautiful Day,” “Land Of The Kings,” “Supreme,” “K.R.E.A.M.,” “Hollywood Hiatus,” and more. Aside from the classicness that occurs at 1:29, the highlight has to be “Supreme.” The kids were wylin’ out to that one and both Y-O and Thurz got some crowd surfing in.
I had a really good time all weekend, so big shouts to everyone involved: One Reel, the artists, KUBE, the homies, the new folks I met, and [Jay-Z] most importantly, you, the customer [/Hov!]. If I have time, I’ll be posting up some more footage of various Bumbershoot performances here on TAOD. Stay tuned.
Man, I’m kinda speechless right now. The homies Y-O and Thurz have really outdone themselves with the new clip for “Hollywood Hiatus” off A Love Supreme. Much respect to super director Tomas Whitmore who has directed all their clips (and El Prez’ “UAINTUPONTHIS!”), and they seem to get better each time. All these joints are smashing major label videos right now.
Cop that Love Supreme if you haven’t already…hint: it’s free!
I take a huge L for not posting the new album from the longtime homies Y-O and Thurzday until a full 2 days after it dropped. Argh @ me being super busy, but at least I’m finally getting this up here. Besides, if you’re up on things, you should have already grabbed this. If not, head on over to YOThurz.com and download the masterpiece.
I’ve been looking forward to this ever since Y-O and Thurz first talked about it damn near 2 years ago. Then they came up to Sound Session at the end of last year and played us the snippets and I really got hype. Now it’s finally here in full. Ro Blvd on the beats, Yonas & Thurz on the mic.
