Blessings! The social media gurus have smiled upon us and lead us victoriously to some solid hip hop.
I know I’ve been out of the Hip Hop loop for quite a while, but I saw a clip of this video and had to share. Jus Derrick is an up and coming emcee, who currently has a project available on streaming platforms titled The New 90s, Vol 1. I gave it a brief listen myself, and so far so good. Check it out and let me know your thoughts! #DoItNow #letsgo
Shouts out to istillloveher.de on Instagram for the good ears.
New visuals from your girl Kis Da Ms Menace. The DC native never disappoints, as she demonstrates her lyrical skill in the heart of Brooklyn. We have to support our femcees in a culture where males tend to dominate the rap game. Check out the video and show your support by visiting her site phokisphilms.com and dropping her a line. #letsgo #doitnow
This is the time where we rejoice.
Janelle Monae is back with her short film (emotion picture) Dirty Computer. Yes fandroids, the album is out and doing record numbers, but we all know to expect Jane to give us food for thought. We expect entertainment. We expect art. She doesn’t disappoint as she returns as 57821, a person who doesn’t fit into society’s small box. She is a rebel (of course) and the short film tackles MUCH of the issues many of us face today. I won’t give away too much, but I suspect that this emotion will spark all types of conversations. At least…I hope it will. Pay attention to some of the symbolism and keep your third eye open. Pretty interesting stuff.
Show your support by buying the album available everywhere music can be found.
New visuals from Donald Glover. I like to over analyze music videos and concepts, so I had many ideas when watching this. Gambino is known for pushing the envelope musically, so it’s no surprise that he needed to get this message across. Let me know your thoughts via twitter @Dropajewel and enjoy.
I fucking love this song.
As I try to keep you all laced in good tunes for the spring and upcoming summer, I came across this one while listening to my favorite local rock station. The band is from Massachusetts, and have been on the scene for a good minute now. We’re in luck, the band is currently on tour and coming to a city near you. Keep your eyes peeled, check out their website Highlysuspect.net and show your twitter love @Highly_Suspect. #DoItNow
