J. Cole – Work Out (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on August 21st, 2011 by Hyphen

The official visuals for one of my favorite songs of the 2011 summer season finally dropped. Summer, girls, basketball…bet.  Be on the look out for Jermaine’s follow up single, “Can’t Get Enough” with Trey Songz, to take over radio and television soon as well. Cole World!

The Airplane Boys – Born To Be (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 14th, 2011 by Hyphen

Funny haircuts. Funny clothes. Funny Kanye-esque hand movements. Good music.

I might have to rock this on Sound Session tomorrow…

You may remember these lyrics from a previous WLotD.  I say get your money Homer.

Reflection Eternal – Long Hot Summer (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on October 23rd, 2010 by Hyphen

I’m a little mad that they dropped this video in October, but I suppose when you’re filming in SoCal, it’s always a long hot summer.  I love the way Hi-Tek worked in one of his classic “vocal sample that isn’t really a vocal sample” effect.  If you want to hear more about how this record, and every song on Revolutions Per Minute, was created, check out our in-depth interview with Talib & Tek right here.

Theophilus London – I Want You (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on June 14th, 2010 by Hyphen

Some of my friends don’t really approve of the liberal use of the Marvin Gaye sample, but I don’t think Theophilus is trying to take it to that level or anything.  This is just a mixtape record, albeit a super sexy record, especially when paired with the Vashtie directed video.

Check please.

I don’t know the back story behind it, but this is crazy.  “Comprised using chords, bass notes, and vocal samples” from one of the best films of ’09, Up.

Sidenote, just saw Up In The Air, which was fantastic as well.  Next up is Avatar, but I need to wait until the furor around the 3D IMAX shows dies down a bit…

M-Dot – Backstabbers / No Turning Back (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homey M-Dot dropped this video recently and I kept meaning to post it up.  Better late than never…and for the record, you can’t go wrong with that O’Jays sample, especially with M-Dot spitting some fire over it.

Now if you’ll excuse me, time to go have some holiday dinner with the fam-a-lam.  Hope y’all are doing the same.

Rashid Hadee talks with Fake Shore Drive

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on August 31st, 2009 by Hyphen

Sound Session listeners have probably noticed that the past few playlists have been filled with cuts off Hadee’s insanely dope 808’s & Hadee: Chopped Not Screwed remix project and I still think too many people are sleeping on it.  Peep the interview above to hear Rashid talk all about the project with Fake Shore Drive and download the tape asap right here.

I’m telling y’all: one of the best releases of the year, easily.

Murs – Me and This Jawn (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on March 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

This dropped while everyone was down at SXSW, but it’s fresh enough to make sure to post up.  “Me and This Jawn” is probably my favorite track off Murs For President, in part due to the crazy flip of the Isley Brothers on the beat.  Dope video too.

If you missed Murs on SNSS last year, catch up.

What you know bout that Gregory Isaacs?

Posted in Artists, Videos on January 20th, 2009 by Hyphen

Y-O, Thurz, and Cook Classics appear to be cooking up a little something sampling one of the greatest songs of all time, Gregory Isaacs’ “Night Nurse,” for the upcoming VIMBY mixtape.  I remember Thurz singing this randomly last time U-N-I was up here and I commented on how much I love that track.  I had no idea they were working on a remake of sorts.  I can’t wait to hear the final version.

And in case you’re sleeping, vibe out to the original.  Flawless…
