InfeRed utilizes the Just Blaze produced track, Exhibit C by Jay Electronica to showcase how HEAVY he really gets. Indianapolis MC, InfeRed, has been likened to Lupe Fiasco, Elzhi, and Black Thought.
HEAVY is a sort of series of quick twitches of his lyrical muscles, flexing the kind brawn he shows on an average day.

HEAVY is the second song (previous: Dracula’s Reflection) from InfeRed’s song-a-week series until his forthcoming 2010 mixtape titled EARS OPEN is completely released. Each song features a unique piece of artwork inspired by the track.
The official HEAVY single artwork and 3 shots of InfeRed are attached.
Thank you for your support!

A track produced primarily by InfeRed, Dracula’s Reflection builds on an eerily vibrant MGMT sample (Future Reflections) and combines with a darkly introspective narrative. Indianapolis MC, InfeRed, has been likened to Lupe Fiasco, Black Thought, and recently Wale.
From InfeRed’s forthcoming 2010 mixtape titled Ears Open, Dracula’s Reflection is not a club track. It is an emotive and tonal experience, a sonic answer to the melancholic and beautiful transition of fall into winter.
InfeRed’s newest anthem, Dracula’s Reflection, features a thumping rhythm with staggered verses building towards a smoky, self-reflective plateau. Listen close; this song is an epic listening experience well worth your time.

In the realm of hip-hop, Lupe Fiasco suggested Mos Def had the best album of the year (he’s up for two Grammys, including Best Rap Album) and that Drake should be up for Best New Artist (he only received a nod for Best Rap Solo Performance).
“I think he’s deserving of it,” Lupe said of Drake. “As many accolades as he can accumulate, pre-album, is a phenomenal task. I think that should be rewarded. He has the potential to do great things — not good or mediocre, but great things.”
I just wanted to post this up for those of you who respect Lupe but maybe don’t know about or aren’t ready for Drake. That’s right…that’s what i’ve been saying…not good or mediocre things for music and for hip hop…but GREAT things. watch out.
Also i like how highly Lupe talks about Mos.
mixtape daily interview video with Lupe after the jump…
peace, and respect introspection AND extrospection love.
Oh yea…and another one is coming…
peace! and remember to smile, love.
It’s actually a pretty long interview but i know you all dig lupe sort of like i dig lupe…so it’s interesting. really it’s mainly him talking about how he felt like he lost his passion (obviously, talking retirement and all) and recently got it back when going through his old mixtape catalogue. he feels like his old shit is still completely relevant and fresh today (which i would mostly agree with).
…it’s like, ‘yo, I was doing that back then?’ That record is almost 6 years old. And it’s still fresh, it still has meaning, and I forgot some of the lyrics so I’m like, ‘that metaphor was kind of crazy.’ It was just like, ‘am I doing that right now? Have I maintained that?…Why would I stray away and not come as hard on every record like I was doing before? That was real. Yeah, I’m gonna go back. I’m gonna go back into the studio and try to beat myself, try to take myself back to where I was.’
peace, and remember to smile, love.
here’s a video from a recent show where ‘lu when in over Drake’s “Forever.” my guess is a mp3 of this will be on the new Fahrenheit mixtape coming the end of November.
yea…he is better than all of them except maybe em (maybe!).
peace, and remember to smile, love.
Lu’s mixtape series expands…Fahrenheit 1/15 number 6 drops November 25th, 2009. The official title will come soon enough…
Be on the lookout! Check out those first 5 if you haven’t heard them yet.
Peace, and remember to smile, love.
he’s coming with a new mixtape…
any name ideas??
peace, and remember to smile, love.
This is from this NPR featurette called a “Tiny Desk Concert.” It’s just Raphael Saadiq on acoustic guitar with Rob Bacon accompanying on acoustic. His voice is incredibly soulful and his songs are like old rhythm and blues pop songs from the 60s.
His most recent album ( The Way I See It(2008) ) is a serious classic. Pick it up if you haven’t yet.
Raphael Saadiq – NPR Tiny Desk Concert mini-album
I chopped up the three songs he does in the video and put them into this EP-style acoustic album. Here‘s the video if you want to watch them play through.
Peace, and sure hope you mean it love.
I haven’t listened to this yet, but i LOVEd the orig. version off Drake’s So Far Gone mixtape.
The CDQ will be out Friday night (which I’m assuming is when you can buy it on iTunes). Yessir!
Drake – Forever feat. Eminem, Lil Wayne, Kanye West
Peace, and forever love.
The Martians were in Bloomington this weekend. Today (July 4th) they started recording for the new mixtape (coming soon!) Nice and Clutch. Here’s some shots i snapped and put together during the 2 song inspiration-fest.
Be on the lookout for new music!! Take my word for it…it’s a new sound from the first mixtape (Spaceships & Beamz @ Datpiff) and it is sounding riDICULOUS!! The quality is waaayyy nicer, the music is different, and both Jack and Max are continuously getting better.
Peace! and patriotic july 4th love.
Hello world. My name is Infewill.
so i’ve an update for The Higher music video. I know i know, i was talking big like, “oh we’ll have it this week, nbd, be here soon.” weelll….we did finish it. but i was not happy with it. so we are starting over. well, from square 2 or 3. we’re keeping the performance footage, but adding more B-Roll and also in HD now. we’re just adding to it and editing in a different direction. but trust in grob!, it will be here soooon. but i AM a perfectionist and i won’t release shit until it is perfect (as my greatness will allow).
in additional related news…i’m cookin’ up a little something for the actual music side of The Higher. more on that later.
Quote of the day: “I put it on the flo’ like cat food” -Lupe Fiasco
Currently listening to: Joe Budden – Classic (Kickdrums remix)
(the Kickdrums are NUTS…if you don’t have their new LP definitely pick it up for good production. it’s a stray away from hip hop in that it doesn’t feature rapping…but it’s dope production)
also, i’m gonna post some new music i’ve been working on soon because…i want to…and…you guys are slacking, so…i’ll pick up the pace.
peace, and higher love!
Yooo, whats gooder people? Jack Marz here, and yea… I been living under a rock…listening to My tunes in my headphones and making NEW HOT SHIT… I been grinding/ working with my cuzzo Lunatic (S.O.B.) on his new up coming mixtape “Love Life & Lunatic” mixed by who else but Mr Marz (my dj alter ego) With a few guest appearences by The Martians and a few others… SOB artists will def be in the building as well. were planning to drop it on July 4th, so get ready… later ill post a few tracks up were working on and such… stay tuned in…. But i gots to jet, I gotta go get a haircut, peace love and hair grease….
I just uploaded The Soulution to Datpiff so more people will here it. We never did do a cover for it so I went ahead and put this together. Which one do you like better?? (obviously, the only real difference is the effect on Red’s face on the first version)
Peace, and cover love.
ok…so WORD IS, this is a mixtape precursory to a studio album “coming soon.” i need to say, if this album actually comes into fruition, i would cry. yes, like, face in hands, whimpering, dancing feet, crying. i’m going to be completely honest…i don’t think it’s going to happen.
i know tip and saadiq have worked together and made beautiful music…but this super group could be one of the seismic shifts in the earths plates that makes liquid magma, hot smoke, and destruction across the surface of the earth.
Q-Tip, D’Angelo, Raphael Saadiq: Lynwood Rose (Mixtape)
ENJOY! PeAce…and supergroup love.
FOUND IT! The mixtape has arrived in our needy arms. Download the shit…bump the shit…enjoy the shit.
THis is the prelude to the debut LP, When Fish Ride Bicycles, which (mark my autotuned typing) is going to be top 5 hip hop albums this year.
The Cool Kids – Gone Fishing
Peace..and much autotuned love.
I sort of don’t understand the concept of not releasing these songs on the mixtape (like i think they were supposed to be), but anyways, here’s another one. i liked the original but this is better!
Big Sean – Rollin’ remix feat. Kid Cudi
i’m watching gangs of new york
peace and m u c h l o v e.
