Common x Kanye x Erykah @ SXSW

Posted in Artists, Live Performances on March 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

This is exactly why I wasn’t running around SXSW trying to Flip Cam all the performances hahah.  Levi’s and Fader combined to do a great job covering the performances at the Fader Fort, and the highlight was Kanye’s G.O.O.D. Music showcase.  Common came out to do “The Light” and get the ladies in the mood (handing out assists like Steve Nash…well done Com), and then Erykah popped up for the outro and an impromptu freestyle session.  Super dope.

Kidz In The Hall – I Got It Made ’09 (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 17th, 2009 by Hyphen

Naledge and Double-O were recently chosen by Reebok to remake Special Ed’s classic, “I Got It Made,” and this is the resulting video.  On first listen, I dig the song and the visuals are fresh as hell.  One of those videos where you can just tell they had a good time making it.

Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s back to packing for SXSW.  Hopefully I’ll get to say what up to the Kidz homies down there (I’m shooting for the Fader Fort at 1pm on Friday).  Should be a crazy week…
