Shane Eli – When We Were Kings (video)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes, Music Videos on February 18th, 2012 by Hyphen

We played this Shane Eli record a while back on SNSS and I always thought it was real dope.  Good to see some visuals for it now and I’m happy to toss it up on TAOD.  Hopefully more folks take note, both of Shane’s talent and the knowledge he’s kicking in this song.

Shane Eli – Grey Area (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on November 20th, 2010 by Hyphen


It’s very rare that I get a submission from an artist that I’m not familiar with that I end up really liking.  Most of the time, if you’re dope, I’ve heard of you far before you’ve heard of me.  However, I must admit, I’ve been sleeping on Shane Eli.  The homey David sent over his newest directorial piece and not only is it a great video, but the song is ill too.  Sounds great, plus it tackles a real life issue that I know many folks work with every day.

I’ll be checking for Shane Eli in the future for sure.

This is crazy…shout to the homey David Wong on the directorial tip.  I don’t think I could ever get tired of this sound.

Paola Jean – Featherlight (video)

Even though I was just on “vacation” for a week, I can’t seem to relax at all.  Anyone ever have that same feeling?  Perhaps I need to take up yoga or meditation.

In the meantime, I’m thankful for a track like this from the lovely Paola Jean.  Music always soothes the soul…
