I’ll get to the music in a second. First it needs to be stated that Rick from ‘The Walking Dead‘ is a bad ass. I just finished the latest episode and that bar scene is fantastic. If you haven’t watched that show yet get on that A$AP. Where was I? Right. I stumbled on The Whendays while roaming through Cascine‘s page after yesterday’s post on Selebrities. The first track I heard was ‘Untru Love II’ the single from their upcoming album (no release date yet) and I was feelin’ it. Peep the vid below and add them on the facebook. Keep subscribin’.
Yesterday Tyler, The Creator posted on his twitter feed that Earl Sweatshirt has a twitter himself. Earl’s first post was simply “Home”. He then stated that if 50,000 people follow him he’ll release this for everyone. Moment’s later he posted a link to a youtube video (watch below) with snippets of the song. 3 hours later the number was achieved and he released this link to his site where you can stream the full thing. Enjoy the track and welcome him home.
Oh. My Goodness. So, The Weeknd has a new mixtape out, and good gravy this is so good. There are 9 tracks on here, and my favorite by far is his cover of Dirty Diana originally by the legendary Michael Jackson. It’s amazing.
All of you NEED to go download this. It’s FREE, you’ve got nothing to lose. But if nothing else please go listen to his cover of Dirty Diana.
Ok, I’m a bit late on this release, but I just got myself a copy of the album, and I can say without a doubt that this is my favorite hip-hop album of this year, and possibly of all time. From the instrumental interludes, to the last four movements of the album. The lyricism is just amazing. Black Thought (lead singer of The Roots) and all the features on the album: Dice Raw, Greg Porn, Truck North, and Phonte just did an amazing job with keeping the overall feel of what The Roots had in mind with this concept album. This project is on POINT!
“undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.” – theroots.com
There really is nothing negative I can say about this album.
Please please please go buy this album, support these guys, the real music.
Favorite tracks: Sleep, One Time (feat Phonte & Dice Raw), Stomp (feat. Greg Porn)
