Yung Lott "Change" feat. Damey

The homie Yung Lott comes with this interesting video which involves the XBox Kinect game "Dance". Shit is hilarious, dude is goin in and gets vexxed when his girl interrupts his dance session. Really though, no girl needs to walk home to some bullshit like that! LOL! I mean look at the screen capture of the video. LMAO!

Big up to Powerhouse films for exposing the man and his vices.

Davinci "Blame Game" prod. Al Jieh

Davinci is back!! 2011 marks the year the Thorobred Aristocrat releases the "Feast or Famine EP" and the awaited "Mona Lisa LP" which I heard has been masterpiece in the making for quite some time now. If you haven't already copped the 2010 release, "The Day the Turf Stood Still" you can now for FREE at http://www.swtbrds.com DON'T SLEEP!



Big up to the SWTBRD collective and Al Jieh's brilliant idea to shoot the entire video with a Digital Harinezumi. That's insane and definitely a bold move thinking out the box.

Happy Birthday to the CEO and head engineer at the notorious music studio, Official Bizness in San Francisco, DEO. This song is set to release on DJ Twelvz album. Stay Tuned.

Dr. Dre "I Need a Doctor" feat. Eminem

I ain't mad you Doc! You've been such an inspiration. I know this video will wake a whole lot of people up and possibly have some artist shit they pants! Congratulations on all your success and I'm hoping one day we can meet.

Armani DePaul x DB Tha General x Roach Gigz



Dee 1 "Its My Turn"

I was really impressed from Dee 1's first video "Jay, 50 & Weezy" but more importantly afraid that the kid would pigeon hole himself as some kind of Rap savior or super conscious rapper. It also seems like he was screaming for attention, which worked to a tee, but with this new video entitled, "Its My Turn" in my opinion just seems too desperate. I'm really hoping he gets out of this hole and just continues to make great records without begging us to, LISTEN! We are DEE, now give us something to slap while not having to think to hard.

Mike Dash E "Thril" prod. 6Fingaz

Mike Dash E's album, "Dash With Me" releases first thing next week March 1st, but before his debut album he drops this video directed my Aris Jerome, entitled Thrill. I remember posting this joint the day Mike leaked it on twitter and I've been a fan of the record since. I think the exact words I said was, "refreshing". Good luck to the kid, I'm sure you'll be alright! LEGO!

Turf Talk "Bay Boy" feat. Mistah FAB

Bailey "Feelin' like a Giant" feat. Ashkon

Remember how I mentioned Bailey, Ashkon and myself had something brewing for the San Francisco Giants? Check it!

Kanye West "All of the Lights"

This video couldn't of popped up at a better time. Not only is this my favorite joint from Kanye's latest album "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" but somehow I feel very motivated and strong right now. A lot of beautiful opportunities have come to play and I can't wait to take advantage of them and just show out. I want to take this opportunity also to say hello to my late uncle Francis. RIP uncle. I love you and miss you. Thank you for watching over us during these times.

2011 XXL's Top 10 Freshmen

So, the wait is over and now the controversy begins. To be honest, just like last year I hardly heard any of the music coming from these artist. I've downloaded music from Mac Miller, Yella Wolf, Kendrick Lamar, and Lil B last year to no disappoint. But, for the rest of the freshman, I either heard your name once or none at all. Not saying that you don't deserve to be on the list but damn, who are you again? Big shout to Lil B from "The Pack" for showin' out for the Bay Area.

My predictions who will sell the most records from this list for 2011 are, Lil B, Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, and Yella Wolf.

BLVCK SCVLE

Big up to one of the strongest brands in San Francisco right now and their new looks for 2011. Also, always appreciated the support they've shown for my craft.

Shady Nate "Free Da Mobb"

I fuck with good music, PERIOD! Big up to DJ Fresh!

Damey "Store Run"

Being a producer in the Bay Area I believe I have an obligation to keep my ear to the streets, online, and what have you and look for fresh new talent. The new talent in the BAY also deserve to be recognized and credited for making quality records and more importantly not be over shadowed by the legends and Bay Area elite before them. Peep game & an open mind! This record is solid top to bottom, from the content + concept + visual. Enjoy!

2.16.2011

Roach Gigz "Syrup Thighs"

Live in Hawaii sippin syrup in on the beach. This is the life. Enjoy!

"The inspiration was paradise," explains Roach. "I just thought there would be no better song to shoot in as beautiful a place as this one." Fitting, indeed, since visiting paradise is a recurring lyrical theme throughout "Syrup Thighs," although Roach leaves it up to listeners to decide whether he is rapping about a girl or prescription cough syrup." -Audible Treats

Rob Jay "Javascript"

Meet Rob Jay; originally from Texas and now residing in the Bay Area. He was looking for a studio and low and behold he found 37Hundred. It was pleasure and refreshing to meet such a unique lyricist with versatile content. In my opinion, if Slick Rick had the IQ of Albert Einstein, Rob Jay would be the voice. Does that make any sense? LOL. Rob Jay is back on his grind, heavy! Stay Tuned!

J Cole "In the Morning" feat. Drake

If I were to shoot a video right now, this is what it would look like. Dope!
