Dear Internets. The D’Angelo Album is REAL. Let me attempt to prove it to you (Part Two):

with 4 comments

Remember when I was telling you the D’Angelo Album is Real? Yeah. More Proof.

If you didn’t believe me, the backtracking, general watching, and the fact that a good friend is actually in the middle of mastering this album… then lets go ahead and get the clear and precise Questlove internet statments on top of all of that.

Coming from my friend Andrew and Gedi over at Prefix and Potholes, they went ahead and pointed out some awesomeness at The Urban Daily and on Facebook that I somehow missed out on… and awesome little quip that basically verifies everything I’ve been saying for the last few months, including the people who are involved in it.  Yay for facebook screenshots. Awesome. Click the links if you want more.

Okay.

Yeah, I should have posted this up ages ago, but Computer Armageddon folks. Still catching up. Still important to post up and update you on, since, you know. I kinda love this dude regardless.

Please let this be good.

So In Love with This Song.

Direct jack move from Johnathan and his eternal cool over at the new HipHopIsCoolAgain.com… Jill releases the second single from the SUPER-Anticipated “The Light of The Sun.” A classic, breezy sounding, summer-influenced, two-steppin soul jammy-jam, Jill and Anthony groove together perfectly to make a great little uptempo joint you can play at the family/4th of July Barbeque. Love, love, LOVE this single… hope it gets a video treatment soon.

She's SO COOL.


I’ve talked about Rachelle Ferrell before (click here and act like you know).
At this point, it will be my 4th time seeing her in the same amount of years. And every time I go, the turnout grows just a bit more and more. It started with taking mom as a gift for mother’s day… and continued on ever since then. Why? Because she continues to give one of the best Live Jazz Performances I’ve seen. In a small venue format. Its AMAZING. This woman does everything. From singing with an 8 Octave range (INCLUDING THE WHISTLE REGISTER PEOPLE) to scat-vocals to BeatBoxing better than your favorite rapper… Rachelle Ferrell is possibly one of the greatest and UNDERRATED vocal talents of all time. OF ALL TIME. ©kanye.

You can click here to buy tickets… I already have. And I’m inviting buddies. I don’t care if you’ve never heard of her or her music before. You should get familiar and see this woman while you can. Eventually I’ll get around to making another appreciation post. Until then, you google this woman and witness her GREATNESS.

If you missed it: Jill Scott settles with Hidden Beach; Possible New Album on the way.

YAY NEW MUSICS

If you missed it = I missed it, so you might have not seen it yourself. So here you go.

In classic Jill Scott fashion, it looks like she has privately resolved the ongoing legal issues with her label, Hidden Beach Records. It began when Hidden Beach filed their suit against Jill, claiming that she still owed them Several Albums. Jill counter sued, Claiming the ability to dissolve contract via California 7-Year Clause. Just when you thought this wasn’t going to end well, Jill pops up on the Essence Music Festival dates, the album title “The Light Of The Sun” pops up (I’m late tho), and she quietly settles out of court with terms of the agreement kept confidential. Hey. Whatever you need to do to get moving. I’ve heard you’re going all the way in with the new album, cant wait to hear where your heart is at right now. Good luck with everything.

 

(This song still hits a fu*king nerve. Got me feeling some kinda way about something.)

Chillin hard somewhere in Asia somewhere. She won.

I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Elle’s voice and presence for a while. Along with being an overall understander and general winner at life, Miss Elle B is a USC educated, musically gifted, Raheem DeVaughn opening, Katy Perry backing superstar… Lauren is just an overall awesome person, morally aware human being and great friend. In between all of her jet setting back and forth with certain famous musicians, she sat down with Propaganda Champ for a quick interview as to what she’s up to. You should seriously watch this. I pick  nothing but winners.

I PICK AND HANG OUT WITH NOTHING LESS BUT WINNERS.

Pay attention now; she wont be small time for long.

The vimeo video is acting like it doesn’t want to be posted right now, so you guys click HERE to watch.
