(best stillframe image ever)

While on tour in Asia, Bobby Ray decided to team up with Motion Family, some local Singapore ladies, and the most baller pool/view combo you’ve ever seen for some quick visuals to his mixtape track, “High Life.”

This is how you stunt.

Pac Div, Knux, B.o.B, Charles Hamilton, Talib Kweli, Mistah F.A.B., Freeway, & Blu – Pepsi Mic Pass

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on May 19th, 2009 by Hyphen

Generally speaking, projects with this level of corporate organization/sponsorship turn out extra corny, but thanks to the talent assembled for the latest Pepsi Mic Pass video, this one came out dope.  All the live stuff was shot down in Austin at SXSW and you can see all sorts of folks in the background.  Town homies will recognize Dow Jones and Jake One especially…

B.o.B. – Generation Lost (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on February 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

“Honestly, I don’t even listen to rap/
Cause when I turn the radio on, out comes crap/
And if you make good music, that’s ok/
On the radio, that, they don’t play/
It’s easy to see, we created a beast/
Cause everybody wants to hear what they don’t need/
And now all the rappers gotta struggle to give you/
That bullsh*t music so they can continue/
…to live”

Bobby Ray is killing it these days.  If you missed my interview with him a while back, peep game.

B.o.B. – Lonely People (video)

Fresh off releasing the dope video for “I’ll Be In The Sky” (currently my jam), Bobby Ray is back with some more visuals for “Lonely People.”  All my fellow antisocial folks out there understand how this jawn sums up why I always turn down those offers to hit the clubs.  No thanks, I’m goooood.

Shout to Bob, Tre, Rich, & TJ…y’all are killing it right now.  2009 is going to be huge.

B.o.B. – I’ll Be In The Sky (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 18th, 2009 by Hyphen

While chilling at the Inverse show last night, a few of the homies reminded me that I haven’t been posting much on TAOD.  My bad y’all, but my time is stretched so tight that it’s tough to handle all the biz and also [Unk] blog it out [/Unk] consistently.  Also, to be blunt, there wasn’t a whole lot of stuff that I saw this past week that seemed dope enough to post.

However, this new video from B.o.B. was one notable exception.  “I’ll Be In The Sky” is one of my favorite joints of the past year or so and I really hope programmers realize how catchy the hook is.  I would love to see a joint like this catch on, because if you pay attention to the verses, Bobby Ray is actually speaking on some real ish.  Look out for cameos from Playboy Tre and B. Rich, and then be sure to peep the interview I did with all three from a little while back.

Be sure to tune in to Sound Session tonight.  I’ll have a whole bunch of new music plus the Inverse homies will be live in studio…

Sound Session #189 (1-11-09)

Posted in Artists, Episodes, Sound Session on January 14th, 2009 by Hyphen


I’ve been doing a radio show a week for damn near 10 years, but yet, somehow I’ve never been bored during any one of those shows.  With J out of town on vacation and no guests coming through SNSS live, this was one of the first shows in a minute where I was alone in the studio.  My worries that boredom would ensue were soon alleviated when I remembered why I love this gig.  I’m all by myself…in a soundproof room…playing music that I love as loud as possible.  You can just vibe and rock out to it.  Doesn’t get much better than that.

Along with playing some of my favorite tracks out right now from artists like Blu, Inverse, Little Dragon, K’Naan, Kenna, Anthony Hamilton, Royce The 5’9″, and more, I also ran a snippet of the interview I did with B.o.B. and Playboy Tre from a while back.  Be sure to check out the full interview here.

B.o.B. and Playboy Tre on Sound Session

Posted in Artists, Interviews, Sound Session on January 11th, 2009 by Hyphen

Bob, Tre, Rich

As much as I love all my favorite classic artists, there’s really nothing better than seeing the next generation come up and begin to establish themselves.  I remember when I first heard of B.o.B., I was impressed, but not blown away.  Fast forward to almost 2 years later and now I’m definitely a huge fan of Mr. Bobby Ray.  He killed every verse and hook in 2008 and ’09 will officially be his break out year.

Not only is he insanely talented, but he’s also a real cool dude.  You all saw a glimpse of that in the “Autotune” video, but I got to see it firsthand when B.o.B., Playboy Tre, and their manager B. Rich came through Sound Session to chop it up a while back.  We talked all about their backgrounds, B.o.B.’s upcoming debut album, the lead single (“I’ll Be In The Sky”), their ability to write infectious hooks, why their music has to be genuine, why the industry needs a reality check, and much more.  You can check out the full interview below:

Big shout to the whole crew for dropping by and a special shout to TJ Chapman too.  Get ready for the B.o.B./Tre takeover in ’09, for real.

B.o.B. – Autotune

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Joints, Music Videos on December 4th, 2008 by Hyphen

(word to the Gorillaz poster in the studio)


Bobby Ray just ethered half the industry with this one, Wayne especially.  I’m sure he’ll have to be PC and downplay any controversy as just jokes, but remember: [Ms. Fischer] behind every joke is a little bit of truth [3rd grade teacher].  Glad someone dope in the industry isn’t afraid to say it…

Look out for B.o.B., Playboy Tre, and B-Rich on Sound Session soon.
