Shad – Quest For Glory (live)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on May 14th, 2009 by Hyphen

The two dopest artists in the game to me right now both hail from our friendly neighbor to the north, Canada.  Yeah, yeah, I still love all the usual folks I listen to, but in the past few months, I’ve been bumping nothing but Drake’s So Far Gone and Shad’s The Old Prince Still Lives At Home.  Even though it’s been available up north for a minute, Shad’s album is finally dropping here in the States on June 30th.  I really can’t recommend it enough…and those songs are like 2-4 years old now.  Wait till you hear the new ish.

And if you need any convincing that SK is dope, peep this…possibly the illest freeverse ever:

I’m sorry…WHAT?!!?!?  Incredible every time.

Brainstorm (of Dyme Def) – Say You Will Freeverse (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 5th, 2009 by Hyphen

Everybody seems to be getting down on this instrumental (shout to Drake especially), but this is the first video I’ve seen over it.  Big shout to Brain, Dyme Def, and the whole Soul Gorilla/800LB fam.  Gotta love the Kingdome footage at the end.  206 all day.

Sidenote:  I’m mad busy this week, semi-sick, and will be headed to Oregon this weekend…so blogging might be at a premium for the next few days.  Hold tight…
