(best stillframe image ever)

While on tour in Asia, Bobby Ray decided to team up with Motion Family, some local Singapore ladies, and the most baller pool/view combo you’ve ever seen for some quick visuals to his mixtape track, “High Life.”

This is how you stunt.

Sound Session #320 (7-17-11)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 18th, 2011 by Hyphen

While J. Moore repped Seattle to the fullest with Shabazz Palaces at the Pitchfork Festival in Chicago, I held down the SNSS fort with the intern, Young Nick (aka Beeba) back here in the 6.  Another week, another fun show full of great music.  This time, we highlighted work from folks like Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Don Trip, Purple HeArts, The Black Opera, Nikki Jean, The Weeknd, Tall Black Guy, and more.  Of course we also played the underground hero, Big K.R.I.T., who I got the honor of choppin’ it up with at our Summer Jam on Saturday.  Peace to his crew (Dutch, Wally, & Sant) and shout to the other homies we ran into, B.o.B, Playboy Tre, B. Rich, and TJ!

All that said, I think another artist we played, TiRon, summed it up the nicest at the end of his verse on the show:

“thinkin’ too much…enjoy the moment.”

Playboy Tre – I Don’t Care (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 30th, 2010 by Hyphen

The homeboy Jon Jon is currently down in Los Angeles learning all sorts of incredible film-making techniques to take his productions to the next level, so I think he’s falling back from music videos for a little while.  That said, he’s got a few more in the stash, starting with the debut video for B.o.B’s right hand man, and all around funny guy/dope MC/crazy hook writer, Playboy Tre.  What up fellas?!

All City Chess Club – Beamin’ (Remix)

Posted in Artists, Joints on October 14th, 2010 by MitchNW

Mitch: Back in April we found out by a tweet from Lupe that himself, along with a few other notable emcees, would join forces to create the All City Chess Club, the first “Super Group” since Wu-Tang that has people really talking. Well here we have the first official drop from the group minus/plus a few members. Indulge…

Janelle Monae ft. B.o.B & Lupe Fiasco – Tightrope (Remix) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Remixes on July 2nd, 2010 by Hyphen

Not only did Ms. Monae hook up a dope remix to her “Tightrope” record, but she also got the crew together for a quick video.  Just for the record, has anyone seen her guitar player, Kellindo, and Andre3000 in the same room at the same time?

B.o.B – Camera (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 5th, 2010 by Hyphen

This is actually one of my favorite songs from Bobby Ray and while I was disappointed to see it not make the album, at least they shot some quick viral visuals for it.  As for the topic at hand, you could write an interesting psychological analysis of girls that become models.  That’s gotta be a weird life decision to reconcile with yourself as you get older.  But for the rest of us, at least they’re fun to look at…

B.o.B ft. Bruno Mars – Nothin’ On You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 13th, 2010 by Hyphen

Visually, I’m not sure the video is up to par with “I’ll Be In The Sky,” or as creative as “Autotune,” but can you really go wrong when you just cast a million cute girls?  Nope!  I’m really glad this record is proving to be Bobby Ray’s first hit.  We played it early on Sound Session and to see it get added to rotation on stations across the country is a beautiful thing.
