Shi Wisdom ft. KJ – LoveSpeak (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on July 7th, 2011 by Hyphen

Shout to the homey G for always giving me the heads up on good music from his hometown, Toronto.  Why is the T-Dot killing it so much these days?!

Any record using the classic Dilla “Let’s Ride” drums is always going to get my head nodding (shout to my guy Tunji too), and I so desperately need more of this grown, genuine, soulful music in my world.

Travis Barker x Forever

This dude is so ill on the drums.  Ridiculous.  Download link courtesy of the Dopehouse.

Drake ft. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, and Eminem – “Forever (Travis Barker Remix)”

Oh, and for the record: after further inspection, Lil Wayne remains thoroughly outclassed on this track.

Reflection Eternal f/Res – Back Again (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

Since my day job works with music videos, I often get a sneak peak at clips before they get released.  We got this one in last week and since I’ve always loved the track (the beat is banoodles), I was hoping the visuals would live up to it.  Thankfully, Todd Angkasuwan, one of the illest up and coming directors in the game, did the song justice and killed it with the one take approach.

Shout to Talib, Corey, Tunji, S.A.S., and the whole Blacksmith fam.  Cop “Back Again” on iTunes right here.

Kanye West ft. Young Jeezy – Amazin’ (video)

I’ve never been a huge fan of this track (the “maven” line always makes me cringe), although the drums are fire.  Hype Williams’ visuals look great, but I’m not sure they add much to the record.  They really just make me want to go to Hawaii…stat.

Busta Rhymes – “Don’t Touch Me (Travis Barker Remix)” (Studio Version)

You’ve seen the video, now you get the studio quality mp3. I smell a workout classic.  So dope.

Travis Barker helps out Busta

Posted in Artists, Remixes, Videos on May 30th, 2008 by Hyphen

Never been a Blink 182 fan, but their behind the scenes stuff on MTV always made me think they seemed like cool dudes. I remember they renamed fan “meet and greets” as “meet and creeps,” which anyone who has helped run one can definitely relate to. Then again, I also remember seeing some of that awful reality show about Travis Barker’s marriage. So I guess it’s a push.

Anyway, Travis has been “remixing” random hip-hop joints over the last year by playing live drums alongside the track. This one with Busta Rhymes’ “Don’t Touch Me (Throw Da Water On ‘Em)” is the best one by far, mainly because he actually picked a good song to rework. No matter how much you kill the drums on a Soulja Boy track, I still can’t listen to that…
