Sound Session #267 (7-11-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on July 12th, 2010 by Hyphen

You remember when you were a kid and your parents (if they loved you…shots fired) would ask about your day at school?  Regardless of what happened, 90% of the time, you’d respond to “how was your day?” with “…good.”  I mean, you could have aced a test…gotten into a fight…got that date to Homecoming…etc., but it’s always first nature to just sum it up.  “Good.”

Well, sometimes these Sound Session archives feel the same way.  That’s not a bad thing.  On the contrary, we just continue to provide that piffery.  Uncut, raw, dopeness…straight to your veins each week (enough overt drug references for ya?).  “How was Sound Session this week?”…”Dope.”

And in case you’re wondering, our throwback is in response to the Oscar Grant madness…aka the only decision worse than Bron Bron this week.  Speaking of which, here’s some advice: announce the creation of a specific chapter of your charity that will focus on Cleveland’s youth.  Pledge a minimum of 2 million, which is a drop in the bucket for you.  Anytime someone attacks you for the callousness you showed the Cavs, say you’re sorry but that’s just sports anyway…your charity work shows how you really feel about the community.  Diffuses the situation and 2 million in donations buys you 10 million in PR.  But nah…run with the “all the ad revenue from my ego-tastic special goes to the B&G Club” angle.  [Jamie Foxx] Yeah, that’ll get ’em on your side…yeah [/I am your conscience].

Talib x Hi-Tek say what up

Posted in Artists, Drops on May 31st, 2010 by Hyphen

If you caught Sound Session last night, you know we ran through the entire Revolutions Per Minute album from Kweli and Hi-Tek.  While I decide how much of the video I want to let loose, the homies say what up…

Common ft. Pharrell – U.M.C. (original video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 3rd, 2009 by Hyphen

It’s always interesting when videos like this end up leaking.  Were they really that upset with this final result that they felt the need to go create another video with all the robots?  Shrug…I like ’em both.

And for the record, this album is still dope.
