Yay!

Finally making my dreams come true, Stalley brings his music and talents to the Southern California area with a show at The Terrace around the corner in Pasadena. Usually the ill sushi lunch spot, Terrace transforms into a pretty dope music spot once in a while after dark. And this looks like it should be fun. Maybe I can get him to do “Milk and Honey” Live for me and ask him about that evil comment about the Lakers and their fans. LMAO.

You can check out all my previous nerdery regarding Stalley by clicking here… and hopefully I’ll see you at the show.

Winner.

I love The Kid Daytona. If you missed my first music video appreciation post, go back and watch it now. Certified and official; Your boy just might be The Truth and The Future. Finding a way to break into my usual rotation of Dee-1, Stalley, and the usual Nas and Damian Marley love, I am absolutely ENTHRALLED with this dudes entire style right now. Straight off his new “The Interlude” LP and featuring Styles P (who just keeps getting iller), its drenched in gloriously thick,  boombappy wonderousness, lightly sprinkled with beautiful piano riffs and chords in the background, and horn section that leaves you feeling like you’re on a cloud, this is simply a wonderfully orchestrated song dedicated to the appreciation of engaging in the smoking and inhaling of herbal substances; possibly NOT for medicinal purposes.

If that didnt convince you, then 1. Oh boy. 2. I need you… as a Tribe Called Quest fan. Please. Listen to Contemplation. He did what I’ve been wanting to do my whole life… rap over A Tribe Called Quest’s “For Moms.” OMG. 3. Listen to Learn; my new current theme song.

But then again, you could just go download the whole mixtape and do yourself some good.

Find the links, and enjoy.

Good Times.

Meant to post this a little while back with The Roots at The Playboy Jazz Festival joints, but I’ve been real busy with work and helping friends pack. But I definitely wanna get this up for you to see. Along with Black Thought doing a little of “Walk Alone” for us to see, He also was ill enough to freestyle over that new Kid Daytona “On The Hill” that everyone knows I love. Go ahead and check the footage below.

Enjoy.

So remember when I told you about The Roots headlining the Playboy Jazz Festival? Yeah, I made it out. And here is all the awesome proof.

By the way… check out Slidedeck. Its the truth and the future. I know the photos dont fit into the format yet (still working on it), but if you want to see the picture in full, all you have to do is click on it and it will take you to the full photo.

Also, an interesting interview with Questlove regarding The Roots leading such a prominent jazz festival. I mean, since The Legendary are basically a Jazz Band that do hip hop, I don’t understand what the problem is. Yeah, some of the 60+ got up and left… but they were like, 60. No offense. (And thanks euroweb for featuring my video.)

But really, the YouTubes should give you an ideal of what a fun time it was. Everything I have is up on my YouTube page for you to see.
The best part? The Gil Scott-Heron Cover of “The Bottle” with Terrance Blanchard on the horns. Wow.
Second to that… the lead in from Bob James and Fourplay doing “Westchester Lady,” which led right to The Roots set. Dopeness.

The Roots and Terrance Blanchard: Gil Scott-Heron’s “The Bottle”

….The start of the show… Bob James and Fourplay do “Westchester Lady” before The Roots tear the roof off.

…and here we go.

..and there you go. I didn’t even go to this thing with the intent of recording. I was on my 3rd glass of chardonnay. So its not the greatest stability in the camera. But I hope you semi-enjoy.
Leave a comment in the awesome discuss feature for me, and spread the word.
