Jay-Z – D.O.A. (Death of Autotune) (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 29th, 2009 by Hyphen

I was debating whether or not to post this video, since I know it’s been plastered on virtually every blog in existence today, and then a reader commented his appreciation for NOT posting this…BUT…I’m afraid I gotta.  I just like this song, though the video doesn’t do a whole lot for me.

I’m not sure what’s funnier:

  • The haircut ending
  • Jewelry and bottles that will probably appear in his next video being blown up
  • The ugly lefty jumper…[clipse] EEGGHHHCCKKK [/pusha]

But in the end, ‘Ye told me to kill y’all to keep it one hunnid.

Sound Session #210 (6-7-09)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on June 9th, 2009 by Hyphen

It’s been a busy past few days  for me, so I’ll run through my thoughts for this week’s SNSS quickly with bulletpoints:

  • Courtney Lee.  Courtney, Courtney, Courtney.  That was a gimme and most likely cost the Magic any chance of winning the championship.  Not that they had a good chance to begin with, but that game might have been their only lifeline against a focused Laker squad.  For those of us hoping for a long series, our hopes were dashed with one blown layup (well, two I suppose…but the scoop was a bit tougher).  I hope I’m proven wrong and we get a classic 7-gamer, but I highly doubt it.
  • Aw snap, our Cornerstone Mixtape is finally out.  Read more and download it right here!
  • This week’s show featured music from some of the dopest artists around, including Ghostface, Dead Prez, A.R.M., Outasight, Mos Def, Drake, Tanya Morgan, and more.  And yes, of course we played Jay-Z’s “D.O.A.”…was there ever a doubt?
  • We might have given a world premiere to DJ Spinna’s excellent record with Phonte and Yahzarah, “Guaranteed.”  Not sure if that one has hit the net at all, but if you haven’t heard it, peep it…asap.  Cop Sonic Smash on June 30th!
  • We were also joined in the studio by Kyle Lucas (of Vonnegutt), who talked about signing with Big Boi’s Purple Ribbon label and his new project with Seattle’s own Captain Midnite, along with one of our most talented soul artists in the city, Mycle Wastman.  Speaking of signing, be on the lookout for Mycle to sign to a very major label soon…the ink is almost dry!
  • Peep our final break to hear my mini-rant on T-Pain and his “Big Ass Chain.”  I like T-Pain (kinda), but I gotta call ’em like I see ’em.  $410K on a chain, recession or not, is asking for ridicule.
