I think this Ted Talk found me as I needed it today…
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
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
The queen is back! This time she teams up with YG to bring you visuals for I Don’t. Check it out.
Oh No & Tristate deliver the first visual from the project with “G.T.D.,” and fans of “Martin” will surely remember the episode from which this acronym was coined (Got The Drawers). Oh No & Tristate also dedicate the video to Tommy Ford (Ford played the role of Tommy on “Martin”).
If you aren’t familiar, Syd is the lead vocalist from the Grammy nominated neo soul group, The Internet. Their last album Ego Death has been in my rotation since it dropped in 2015. Check out the video and be on the look out for her upcoming project Fin coming soon.
Ahhh! New music from Baltimore native Nova Starz. I’m hoping there is a new album brewing soon. Her last project, Dark Lovely Places…For The Ragers gave us chills. This new cut is produced by the one and only Street Scott and directed by Steven Q Speilberg. Check it out. #DoItNow
Yaaah! New music from London rock group Splashh.
For those of you still high from their 2013 release, Comfort, you’ll be happy to know that their new album Waiting A Lifetime is due next year. Get Excited.
This video is dopeness! Word on the street is that J Cole will be dropping his new album in a few days. Keep your eyes peeled.
