The first video from Geo & Bam’s Prometheus Brown & Bambu Walk Into A Bar joint project talks about where their families are from…and where they’re at now. Dopeness.
“I don’t go to clubs or listen to the radio (outside of SNSS) but when I do, I listen to Pac Div’s “Top Down.”"
Freddie’s ode to the West Coast…the best coast…off Cold Day In Hell gets some nice visuals featuring producer/crooner Polyester and Dom Kennedy, who really epitomizes the current iteration of the west coast G sound. Definitely a smooth record that makes any of us stuck in the cold northwest region pine for that LA weather.
This video gets a post for a few notable reasons:
- One of the better opening shots I’ve seen recently.
- Quoting the iconic “Jean Claude van Damme I’m fine!” FPoBA line.
- Fashawn is dooooope and I like what I’ve heard from Omar so far.
- Summer’s already almost over and I’ll miss videos like this when the rain hits here in Seattle.
- I miss my Cali homies.
- The homey Aren got his cameo on at the BBQ.
Inspired by Slum Village’s “Climax,” of course. Dilla told you later with “Won’t Do” as well. Shout to all the homies in this one!
Plain and simple, Aloe Blacc has murdered everything he’s touched this year. He might be my artist of the year for 2010…well, if Yeezy didn’t release another 5 mic’er, but in any event, Aloe is up there. This time he lends a helping hand to the artist formerly known as Medaphor for “Where I’m From.”
This has been the jam for the past few weeks and I’m glad to see the Top Dawg crew turned it into a video. Smooth, mellow beat, plus dope MC’s…what else do you need?
Kendrick is a cot damn beast, btw.
I remember making the yearly drive from Seattle to L.A. and back for college and every time I went through Fresno, I had the same thought: one side of I-5 looked like any strip mall friendly college neighborhood while the other…looked like the F that Fash describes in “The Ecology.” Great records, and you get the 2 for 1 visual treatment courtesy of Punit Dhesi too.
Um, this pool party looks enjoyable. Highly.
Though working in the video production world, I must comment on the seemingly poor encode they uploaded. Ugh. Perhaps it had something to do with the waterproof camera, but I would have loved to see a more crisp version of this video. That said, still dope and the song is obviously greatness.
To this day, Trek remains the only MC that I had never heard of when they gave me a really dope demo. This was back in 2000 when I was in my first year of college radio at KSPC. Since then, if you’re dope, I’ve heard of you before you’ve heard of me.
