Theodore Grams – The Money (Music Video)

February 28, 2015

It’s not too often you find rare gems as quality as this. Philly artist Theodore Grams recently dropped a music video for his late single “The Money”. The production for this video by YSKSK is absolutely mind blowing. It’s almost like watching a cinema film. On top of that Theo’s self produced anthem gives the overall composition a dramatic atmosphere. This dude wants more, and he’s doing it in glory.

Micah Williams Channels Andy Warhol in “The 27 Club”

February 26, 2015

Micah Williams pays homage to Andy Warhol in his new video “The 27 Club”. The video gets inspiration from an “art” piece Warhol did with a Danish filmmaker, where he is simply eats a whopper in about 3 minutes. Micah replicates the scene only instead opting for a generic brand hamburger some refreshments and of course his signature cigarette.  The cigarette makes an appearance in his previous video Tree House as well.

Jaden Smith X Ta-Ku – “BeastMode”

Jaden Smith

Via Pigeons and Planes

 

I know what you’re thinking, Jaden Smith?   But hear me out, I’ve been quietly rocking with Jaden since my friend put me up to speed on some of material last year. Then with a few features on Childish Gambino‘s STN MTN/ Kauai and a couple free releases, I have to say I’m a firm believer of the Jaden Smith bandwagon. The argument will always be that he is rich and he has nothing to work for, but Jaden clearly has something that money can’t buy. He can flat out rap and his newest project or single with Ta-Ku solidifies that he is a force to be reckoned with. Honestly, just let the music speak for itself and tell me if you still feel the same way at the end.

Klassik – “Know it All” x “Spring” EP

February 25, 2015

Klassik

What does, Milwaukee artist, Klassik and Andre 3000 have in common? How about “Onomatopoeia”. I stumbled across the eclectic rapper on the soundcloud and what immediately caught my attention was the production range Klassik flowed across. Halfway through Spring EP, his second installment of his Seasons series, I found “Know it all”. The bouncy electronic song, immediately gave me flashbacks to 2012, The Gorillaz “DoYaThing” featuring a playful verse from 3 stacks. Sure enough, both rappers get around to mentioning the word Onomatopoeia. See if you can find the moments in each song.

If you’re like me and can’t get Know it All out of your head, get your taste of Spring early.

Anjelihs – “Metanoia”

February 23, 2015

Anjelihs

Awhile back, I got you guys hipped to the smooth vocals of Anjelihs. Now the Lawrence, MA singer is back with his full project Metanoia. The title means a transformative change of heart or a spiritual conversion. There are two songs in particular I believe that fit that definition of Metanoia. “Good Vibrations” offers some insight on the internal struggle Anjelihs faces while, the outro track “Metanoia” offers a glimpse of his “transformation”. By the end of the project Anjelihs seems to have faced his fears & inner demons so to say and walks out on the other side with a new perspective on life. Give Metanoia a complete listen below.
