OnCue – No Way (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 31st, 2015 by Hyphen

Excellent visuals from the homey OnCue for “No Way” off his Angry Young Man project, which was executive produced by Just Blaze.  You can download the full project for free here, or support via iTunes here.  Either way, GET THAT.

Now we just need a video for “Don’t Forget Your Coat”…

Saigon – The Greatest Story Never Told

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on January 22nd, 2011 by Hyphen

Derek Pike directed visuals for the title track from Saigon’s long awaited album.  This track is probably a few years old, but at least we finally get to hear all these crazy Just Blaze/Saigiddy records!

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).

Saigon ft. Red 5ive – Gotta Believe It (video)

Posted in Artists, Movies, Music Videos on September 5th, 2009 by Hyphen

Brand new visuals for one of the best records of the past year.  Sai-giddy’s Warning Shots 2 drops on the 29th on Amalgam Digital and while we still don’t know when that Atlantic project will ever be released, at least we’ll continue to get some good music in the meantime.

Oh, and if you don’t know, Red 5ive is Just Blaze’s alter ego when he decides to sing hooks.  The name is derived from Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing jet in Star Wars:

It’s a trap!”

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…

RTC x SC – Guns ‘N Doe (mixtape)

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on February 7th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homey Roosevelt Treasure Chest just dropped a new mixtape featuring production from one of the more slept on cats out there, SC.  Don’t be fooled by the generic title, the tape is dope.  Hosted by Just Blaze and featuring guests like Mikkey Halsted, Mobb Deep, Naledge, GLC, Game, Lupe Fiasco, and more, this is definitely something y’all should peep.  Tracklisting and download link below.

Download here.

Wale, Green Lantern, Just Blaze, Skyzoo, & Supernatural freestyling @ RTB

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on August 5th, 2008 by Hyphen

This is the kind of ish that I love about hip-hop: just people relaxing, having fun, and showing their skills.  Wale, Green, Just, Sky, and Supernat have a little freestyle session backstage at Rock The Bells (NYC, I think).  Supernat killed it, obviously, but Just kinda ripped it there too.  Is there anything that dude can’t do?  LOL @ Wale at the end, greatness.

Spotted at Info’s.
