Man, it’s a shame this video didn’t drop a little earlier because the song and visuals would have been perfect for the summer. I’m not sure I really like the stutter video effects, or if I really understand highlighting the hair spin maneuver, but I still dig the video and the song is flawless. I could listen to those drums all day.
While the weather has been nice out here in Seattle for a while (yes, we do have nice weather, shocking, I know), it’s finally starting to feel like summer. This weekend featured the annual “Bite Of Seattle” festival, an awesome exhibition match between Chelsea FC and the Seattle Sounders in front of 66K at Qwest Field, and A-Trak & Theophilus London shutting down Chop Suey. All of this under 80 degree sunny skies mind you…and now this coming weekend will feature our KUBE Summer Jam at White River Amphitheater. Nothing like summer in the SEA.
On this week’s show, we played new cuts from folks like Killer Mike, Donnis, J. Cole, Pac Div, Goapele, Slaughterhouse, Mr. Hudson, Rakim, and more. We also ran a joint from the big homey Jake One off his project with Freeway, along with world premiering the final version of Nas’ “Film.” The version that you’ve heard floating around the net features the original beat from last year’s Red Bull Big Tune winner, C-Sick, but the final version sports revamped and replayed music, along with the proper mixing and mastering. With our very own J. Moore co-writing the hook, you know we had to drop the official version of that big tune.
Last but not least, shout to Consequence for calling in to talk about his new single with Kanye & John Legend (the joint is crazy) and his upcoming Cons TV album. “It’s the Cons fool…word!”

Why the hell was this never released? A few things could be tightened up, but the video is cool and the song was an insta-classic as soon as that first College Dropout advance leaked. Ah…those were the days. Senior year of college…the memories!
“A few new stations, put me in rotation/
They’ve embraced the martian, congratulations”
Well, more than a few stations are finally on board with the Kid Cudi movement and “Day N Nite” is skyrocketing up the chart. Aside from ‘Ye and the always ill Miss Janelle Monae, Cudi was pretty much the star of SXSW, getting mobbed everywhere and packing out show after show. Let’s just say there were plenty of Cudi Buddies ready and willing for the man.
Hit the jump to see Cons and Cudi perform this track live at ‘Ye’s showcase in Austin.
Damn, I thought Shawn Jackson had a surprising number of videos off of one project when he dropped his 4th last week, but this is like the 7th from Cons’ last album. Apparently his grind has paid off nicely cause the sales numbers for Don’t Quit Your Day Job are pretty impressive for a project of that size. The song features his G.O.O.D. Music cohorts, GLC and Really Doe, along with cameos from all sorts of dope artists.
Sidenote: I wonder if the Pomona that GLC mentions is supposed to be the one in Cali. If so, that brings back classic college memories…like the time in 2004 when Tunji told GLC his haircut sucked, almost leading to a physical altercation. His most famous verse up to that point was on Kanye’s “Heavy Hitters” joint and included a line saying “mmhmm, mmhmm, NAW, your hair sucks!” (classic delivery btw). Luckily he remembered and figured out the reference, but not before giving Tunj the ultimate screwface. Good times.

If you listened to my interview with John Legend last week, you heard us reminiscing on the College Dropout days when he toured with Kanye. This was way before A-Trak DJ’d Kanye’s sets, so his road manager, Don C, would handle that…not always so smoothly. John couldn’t remember the name they used to call Don in those days, but it looks like Consequence just brought it out of retirement in this clip documenting the making of N.E.R.D.’s “Everyone Nose (Remix)” video.
Sidenote: I’m a little disappointed that this video looks like it’ll be standard green screen fare. Hopefully they have some dope aftereffects, otherwise I’m worried.
