See what had happened was … in 2011 French filmmaker Mikael Colombu directed a video for Drake – “We’ll Be Fine“ (off Drake’s last album “Take Care“), but it was never released. Supposedly, both Drake and the director weren’t happy with how it was coming out, so they scrapped it.
Colombu wanted to put it out, but couldn’t get the label to sign off on it, since they felt promoting a song off the old album might distract from the NEW album, “Nothing Was The Same“, so Colombu couldn’t use the audio for the song or it would get pulled for copyright infringement / unauthorized use yada yada. Follow me?
Colombu released it anyway, using the music “Don Carlo” by Verdi instead. The result is kind of awesome! Watching the visuals while listening to the classical music is eerie and puts you in a mood. I like it. Let me know what you think.

If there is one thing I’ve gathered from listening to Skyoo’s catalogue it’s that he like me thinks Jay Z is one hell of a lyricist. I might even go so far as to say Hov is one if his favorites if not #1 on the fellow Brooklyinites list. So it made perfect sense that he bless us with his newest work “An Ode To Reasonable Doubt”. Dropping the 9 song EP on Shawn Carter’s 44th birthday SK gives us new interpretations of reasonable doubt from his perspective as if he were Jay. With completely new renditions of the original productions by “Antman Wonder” Skyzoo and Antman Wonder 100% hands down KILL this project, Jay Z
should will feel honored and perhaps a little jealous when he hears this. You can get the album at loyaltydigitalcorp.bandcamp.com for whatever you would like to pay, with incentives and rewards to pay at least $7 which is a steal for the time effort and craftsmanship they put into this. So when you go to the link make sure to show your appreciation and support for one of this generations greats.

Okay so you’ve probably heard of STOMP, the International stage show where they act crazy onstage and bang out beats on just about EVERYTHING except a musical instrument (brooms, garbage cans, tubes and buckets are some of their favorites). But you might be wondering why MCMIreport.com is posting an article about one of the longest running cast members of the show, Keith “WildChild” Middleton. Well the answer is simple. This is the same WildChild who is one third of the group HYDRA, co-founder of the underground Hip Hop crew The PLAGUE!

He is also a talented musician, composer, super producer (check the tracks “Twelve” and “Love Is …“, for examples) and my very own “brother from another mother.” (I am actually the friend he is talking about in the piece, who did magic shows for money at age 12 and then ran to the studio to make rap demos.) So, when NewYork.com put up this awesome interview, as one of their “COOL JOBS Q & A” stories, I had to share it with y’all.

* UPDATE: WildChild is gearing up to release a solo album of his original music and spoken word, early 2014, as well as more music from HYDRA and The PLAGUE. Click to FIND OUT MORE about his album “TRANSITIONS“.

I heard this song on SiriusXM Radio on the drive home today (big up @LordSear) and I got so hyped! Busta Rhymes is in rare form, spittin’ ferocious on this and Q-Tip bodies the track as well. I had always wondered why some MC’s had never exploited the “I wanna thank you, heavenly father …” sample for a chorus. Well now they have.
Kanye West and Lil Wayne both play cheerleaders to their star players. Adding their names and presence in the videos is sure to make sure the younger audience sit up and pay attention to the legendary Native Tongues representatives. Smart move. But I have a suspicion they are planning a remix with everybody’s verse, this is just the teaser. The video is pretty slick. Simple, but with a lot of ‘production value’. The beat, the personnel, the rhymes and the hype are sure to make Thank You a classic. A great vehicle to promote Busta Rhymes’ upcoming ELE2 (Extinction Level Event 2) album.
