This just looks like a lot of fun. The thing i appreciate the most about it is that there are young, old, black, white, men and woman all who have had been positively effected by the great life of Don Cornelius and Soul Train.

I had not heard this song for a minute it came out last year on Pharoahe Monch’s W.A.R. album. He was one of my favorite MCs all the way back to the Organize Konfusion days. The video resurrects a beautiful song and puts even more beautiful visuals behind it. I love videos that are short films that are just that. It really paints a picture and pulls you that much more closer into the song. Enjoy the video and bring the song back into your rotation.
Always impressed by Frank Ocean and this interview really confirmed it. I am excited to see what he will do in 2012. I hope the momentum keeps rolling. He has a lot of potential.
Another beautiful video from Jessie Boykins III directed by Dr. Woo.
Another great year wrap up from Skillz. 2011 had a lot of crazy headlines for 2011.

Saw this video for Miss San Francisco by The Jealous Guys and had to find out more about them. Definitely digging their EP so had to of course share. Here is the dope video that got me excited and a little blurb about the group.
Frisco born sons Ayinde and BizYCasa met as children way before music was a thought, but as teenagers, life took them in very different directions. BizYCasa would go ahead to consume a steady diet of popular street culture and hip hop while Ayinde found the lure of the street corner lifestyle in San Francisco’s Lake View more attractive. Reunited by tragedy and circumstance, the duo started pursuing their artistic dreams as The Jealous Guys. They are motivated by two words: Life Insomniac — defined as someone who doesn’t sleep on life or the opportunities thrown their way.
Ayinde and BizYCasa’s recently dropped the project, “The Love Mixtape,” was met with critical acclaim. The videos for the singles “BRAINWASHED BY LONDON” and “LOVE YOU SO” both premiered on TheFADER.COM, while “BUSSTOP JAZZ” found its premier across the Atlantic in the UK with SouthernHospitality.com, eventually making its way onto UK and US radio. The Jealous Guys found love among producers as well with Clams Casino, Solomon & Finder and Lunice producing the aforementioned tracks (respectively).
The Jealous Guys will follow up “The Love Mixtape” with “Audio Book:” a four-song, four-video EP that’s crafted 100% by the extended Life Insomniac family including in-house film producer/director Chasen Paper, production from Jeremy Rose (The Weeknd) and vocals from Nieko Deluv. Audio Book’s juxtaposition of smooth, exotic production, hip hop drum patterns and the duo’s abstract, streetwise rhymes combine to create a sound that is unique, original to hip hop and instantly addictive to your ears.
Found this beautiful video from a Bay Area-born, London-living Phlo Finister. She is singing a cover of Nancy Sinatra’s classic “Bang Bang” over one of my favorite Mobb Deep’s beats Shook Ones Pt II. I will definitely be looking out for more of her work.
