I haven't seen anything really new that's made me go rah! for a while. Here's some old -new stuff I am feeling.
Pharoah Monch threw a couple of verses over Erykah's The Healer - maybe this means I'll hear it in a club?! It's not too slow, don't argue. Practice your moves with it - click here *No idea why they just get bored & fade it out at the end but you get the drift, sorry!
Here's a guy called Shawn Jackson I know very little about but quite like. This album cover's saying something to me even though it's a little bit contrived - I just like its old skool vibe & the Marvin reference.
Here's his video - Feelin' Jack...correct, I am feelin it.
?uestlove has a new BLOG on okayplayer. Nothing new about him or okayplayer but this post made me love him all the more...
….for real nigga’s who aint got no feelins…
Posted in Uncategorized, take it personal
and i don’t know how to cry anymore.
that shit depresses me to no end.
this aint some being mellowdramtic to be mellowdramatic shit.
i want to cry.
i was taught long ago that if i enter this game of constant competition
and competitiveness and dog eat dogness and getting your soul sucked
and 25 hour workdays and long un-approving looks in the mirror and anxiety
and constant judgment—i better numb the shit outta myself.
i mean i saw no harm in that.
sheeeeit if anything it borderline helped my sanity all the years that i too was wondering
“what the fuck we gettin slept on for”*
but now? i dunno.
Lastly my favourite of the bunch - Janelle Monae. Been around for a little while but I haven't heard much about her over here. This girl is incredible quite frankly - ignore the rest of the post if you must and just watch this...
Maybe I'm getting old.
