Kanye shows us that his album budget is waaaayy too big! He has 2 new video’s alternate video’s out for the single Flashing Lights with our man Dwele, mad artistic dope ass quality shots, not no bullshit handycam youtube video’s. So here check ‘m out!
This is dope, but it gets hilarious soon as Ali Shaheed mentions Dilla. Again, I don’t want to add to all the dick riding that’s already going on with Dilla, but the man was something special. I do however like that they mentioned a number of incredible artists before getting to Dilla that I feel like a lot of today’s generation forget about. Some cats just be on some Dilla only type shit. That’s craaaazzzyyy! I mean, dude was the truth, no doubt, but music is so incredibly vast. There is SO much good music out there… sorry…. I get sidetracked easily.
Long live the TRIBE! God I hope they come correct. Not just the show, but any music they start putting out there again. Omer Saar @ Universoul
9th Wonder& Jean Grae – My Story
9th Wonder& Jean Grae – Don’t Rush Me
9th Wonder& Jean Grae – Billy Killer
Whoaaa! 9th wonder has done it again! Everybody was getting tired of him doing the same style of beats. But with the last tracks he’s done, including the Erykah Badu joint and this one, he has proven to be one of the illest most versatile producer. I expect a bright future for the man, and i bet Phonte & Big Pooh are real sorry they let him go, haha. By the way Jean Grae is on point again, in the video i saw a different appearence than i expected to see of her, but she brought it off real good, definitely our fav female mc.

With each generation a new style of music emerges. While the new generation celebrates its divergence from the generation before in the shaping of its own musical identity, the older generation tends to discredit the ability of the new sound to qualify as real music. Jesse Boykins III has found a way to reconcile these differences. His music possesses a jazzy and soulful sound reminiscent of early R&B acts, but his production and writing are undeniably relevant today. Jesse was born in Chicago, moved to Jamaica at the age of 5 and four years later would spend the rest of his youth growing up in Miami. From moving around he developed a rich musical palate for Motown Classics, R&B, reggae, hip-hop and salsa. His influences include Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Jimmy Cliff, Bob Marley, Sizzla, Bilal, DAngelo, and Musiq Soulchild. In addition to mainstream music, Jesse had reinforcement at home where most of his relatives were singers or musicians and helped develop his own musical talent. Jesse’s calling for his own career came when he joined the school choir at the age of 9. He routinely began auditioning for every singing opportunity that crossed his path and soon found himself recording with many local Miami artists. In high school he was invited to perform in The Grammy Jazz Ensemble and take part in recording an entire album. His performance with The Grammy Jazz Ensemble led to recruitment at the New School University in New York City. At the New School Jesse honed his skills as a vocalist, performer, writer, arranger, and producer, studying with classical trainer Kamal Scott and Universal Music recording artist, Bilal. Although Jesse is only 22 years old, he has been singing, writing and recording for more than half of his life. His voice spans a 5-octave range and his sound draws upon his eclectic taste, creating a style that is not bound by generations or time. Go to the Jesse Boykins Myspace to get his album “Dopamine: My life on my back”.
