Sound Session #278 (9-26-10)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on September 27th, 2010 by Hyphen

Another week and still busy…hmm, I’m sensing a pattern.  In any event, peep this week’s edition of SNSS for tons of dope music from cats like K.R.I.T., CyHi Da Prynce, Shad, Kendrick Lamar, Hell Razah, Slakah The BeatChild, and more.  If you aren’t up on these folks, that’s the reason we do what we do.

Also be sure to stay tuned for our full interview with J. Cole (missed the first full one?  peep it here) and check out the quick footage I grabbed of Jay Electronica at Bumbershoot a few weeks ago…

Jay Electronica at Bumbershoot (Seattle, WA – 9/5/10)

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on September 26th, 2010 by Hyphen

Almost forgot that I grabbed this footage of Jay Electronica performing “Exhibit A” and “Exhibit C” at Bumbershoot a few weeks back.  I’ve heard people were split on his performance: some thought he got the pit area hype, while others were disappointed by how often his DJ cut out the beat and how many acapella verses he spit.  One thing’s for sure…if there’s any beat you should let play in its entirety, it’s “Exhibit C.”  Hearing that bang through the speakers was definitely a highlight of the festival (as was J. Cole’s performance).

Shafiq Husayn ft. Fatima – Lil’ Girl (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 2nd, 2009 by Hyphen

Thanks to some horrible virus issues on my PC, my life sucks right now.  While I desperately try to save the important files off that comp, I wanted to toss up Shafiq Husayn’s new video for “Lil’ Girl.”  Not only is a great record and dope clip, but it’s the first ever music video directed by the 5-C’s own GregTheDude!  The homey from college is doing big things…congrats Greg!

And now if you’ll excuse me, it’s back to tinkering with my desktop comp.  Oh PC, why can’t you run like this new MacBook Pro?
