Gil Scott Heron…Me & The Devil vid

wow! you might remember Gil Scott Heron from alot of old spoken word type records in the 70s. he was sort of one of the reasons rapping happened, at least on record. this new cut from him sounds like a blues lyric form set to some super hard music. very very nice…

props to nahright for the vid and mp3 link (featuring all 3 vids):
DJ Premier feat. Mos Def, Black Thought, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, Buckshot, Crown Royyal, Joe Budden, Wale, Nipsey Hussle, Gsan & KRS-One – 2009 BET Hip-Hop Awards Cyphers (10min megamix)
though, to me, the awards in general are an utter joke…this cypher feature they’ve got going is becoming legendary. ftr, these are possibly my 3 favorite rappers…mixed in with maybe 3 others. who’s in your top 3??

peace, and cypher love.


q-tip/norah jones…life is better vid

Here’s a reeaally good video for Q-Tip’s “Life Is Better” featuring Norah Jones.

I like Norah Jones…i think she’s very talented. Great, soulful but unprocessed voice. Plus she’s adorable and i have a big crush on her. The songs great but the video’s better.
I love the idea of taking an effect and being dedicated to it throughout a video. The problem is, my attention span is only so long so sometimes it gets old quickly. That’s the paradox and the risk one takes when taking this approach. This video does a good job with the quick cuts. Nothing seems to get stale ever.

Peace, and life IS better, love.
