SNSS

On this week’s SNSS episode, we filled the show with a ton of great music from the likes of Joell Ortiz, Joey Bada$$, Fashawn, Dom Kennedy, Childish Gambino, Logic, Diamond D, Nottz, Kendrick Lamar, Mary J. Blige, Jessie Ware, Tinashe, ODESZA, Gorgon City, Broods, and more.  Plus, Cozz called in, fresh off the heels of his Cozz & Effect album to talk all about the project, his background, his relationship with J. Cole, how he ended up signing with Dreamville, and more.  If you just want to peep that interview, you can check it right here.

On top of all that, we were joined in the second hour of the show by Anna Lunoe, a singer/producer/DJ from Sydney, Australia.  Anna played the Neptune Theater earlier in the evening and then dropped by the studio to co-host with us and talk about her new EP, All Out.  We played a couple tracks off it (the excellent title track and a crazy record with Jesse Boykins III) and then learned a bit about her experiences as an artist coming up in Australia and how she fell in love with music.  It was a really enjoyable conversation (if you want to peep just the parts with Anna, click here) and the whole show had a great vibe.  Hope y’all enjoy it!

John Legend – All Of Me (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 5th, 2013 by Hyphen

I assume this was filmed, at least in part, during John’s wedding to model (and surprisingly funny Twitter personality) Chrissy Teigen in Italy, since I think a few of these shots are of Lake Como (some footage at the end as well).  Not to get all TMZ, but apparently John sang this to her during the wedding ceremony since it was a song he specifically wrote for her.

I’ve always thought that “Ordinary People” was a timeless, classic record that we would all look back on like some of the best work from Stevie, Marvin, etc. and while I don’t think this one is quite as strong, it’s a great ballad.  I watched some of my co-workers literally cry after listening to it so I’d say it’s almost a universal favorite for the ladies.

Well played Mr. and Mrs. Stephens.

Kanye West – “New Slaves” (video premiere on 5th Ave Prada store, NYC)

Posted in Art, Artists, Live Performances, Music Videos on May 18th, 2013 by Hyphen

I’ve been in New York this week for some ESPN day job stuff and didn’t really get a chance to do anything music related, as I’ve been so busy working and hanging with some great co-workers.  That changed on Friday when I took the day off to explore the city a bit and visited my people at UMG and WMG.  After a long day, I headed back to my hotel and noticed Twitter was a buzz with Kanye’s amazing rollout of his “New Slaves” video projected on to 66 walls across the world, including one in Brooklyn.  At first, I thought it was the only NYC showing, but after checking their schedule, I noticed the last showing of the night was a few blocks from my hotel but was supposed to start 5 minutes ago.

Having worked in the industry for 13 years, I’m fully aware of hip-hop time, so 5 minutes ago really meant it was going to start in about 15.  Tossed on some clothes and jogged down to the 5th Ave Prada store (right across from Trump Tower) and sure enough, there was a crowd of about 50-75 people waiting for the showing.  Within minutes, a large black truck pulled up and crew dressed all in black hustled to pull off the tarp covering the cargo bay and unveiled the projector and speakers (seriously looked like something a Batman villain would do in Gotham City).  After a quick set up, they showed the piece, which is, of course, just as dope in its style and content as it is in its guerrilla marketing rollout.  Yeezy is back and spitting that real.

After playing it, the crew said they would run it back in about 15 minutes. They left and came back like clockwork, but after setting it up, waited a good 10 minutes before showing it a 2nd time.

Turns out, Kanye himself was on the way to watch this showing as he is in NYC for Saturday Night Live later tonight. He stood behind us with a phone up, as if he was filming like everyone else. Right after it ended, he hopped in his Maybach and drove off. And then he made us pancakes (…Chappelle Show reference).

Shout to everyone in the crowd that night. Real cool atmosphere as all us Yeezy fans were excited to see his new work and be a part of the rollout. Shout to Global Grind and XXL for picking up my video and tweets, and any other sites that have posted it.

And shout to Kanye for the realness. #YeezySeason

Hit-Boy – Jay-Z Interview (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 8th, 2012 by Hyphen

No, this isn’t super producer Hit-Boy interviewing Jay-Z. Instead, this is Hit…rapping? And it turned out dope! Bink! on production for this record, introducing the producer to the world as a MC. I’m rooting for this kid, but he probably doesn’t need it. With all his success lately, it seems like a foregone conclusion that he’ll be a major player in the game for quite some time.

Big Sean – Million Dollars (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 21st, 2010 by Hyphen

Dope new visuals for Big Sean’s “Million Dollars.”  Shout to Mike Brinkley for sending this through.

I’m curious to see if Sean breaks through in 2010 (assuming his official debut does indeed drop).  I think he certainly has potential and I’d never bet against G.O.O.D. Music, but I wonder if he’ll be able to make the jump.  I would love to see a MC like Sean get major radio and video love, and all it’s going to take is the right record.
