DROP THE FUCKING ALBUM
In this new digital age of content, music, and media it can be easy to be left behind. There are so many new artists and so many new albums that drop in one season. This makes it almost impossible to consume it all, let a lone choose an album of the year. Even more is the fact that there are so many variations of a release such as; singles, EP, LP, album, mixtape, compilation, greatest hits, and most recently playlist. And with all these variations and new content being dropped it's easy to see how an artist can feel the pressure to release new music. This has been even more of a concern now that artists now can push a button and have content pushed out to millions of listeners. But what happens if the pressure is too much and that album you promised and have been promoting for 3 months gets pushed back? Here's a few examples:
All Tulsa Rappers Sound the Same
Google Image Search "Tulsa Rappers" and this is what you'll get. And learkin in somebody's comments is an argument I've heard too much. ALL TULSA RAPPERS SOUND THE SAME. This has been an age old argument from the beginning of MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram just search for it. And the sad part is that most of these people that say this are from Tulsa. HOW SWAY? How? But nobody talks about the job these people are doing. Nobody comes to to their job and say "You answer the phone like every other call center rep", or "You take care of old people like every other hospice worker/nurse". OK, Enough of the ranting. But I challenge you to give me an opportunity to explain my why this is a common fallacy. Cause you gone learn today:
Busta Rhymes was in a feather suit for a 2.7 million dollar video but I bet that you don't know one verse from that song. Though people still wear feather suits, what they don't do is pay 2.7 million for a music video. Long gone are the flashy cars and big mansions and the million dollar budgets, but what happens when all the flashing lights and pyrotechnics are gone? What happens when ain't no more Big Pimpin'? I'll tell what happens, the message does the shining. And Kode Ransom is proving just this with his recent videos called “Big Crutch” and “Brenda’s Got A Baby (Reboot)”. So sit back and watch Kode Ransom tell these two powerful stories.
The 2nd Annual World Culture Music Festival........ A hell of a good time. And if you weren't there then there's only 3 acceptable reasons for not. 1) You were sick. Not like ohhh I got a headache, but like I can't move at all sick. 2) You couldn't find a babysitter. (Even though you had a month to prepare, but I get it life happens). 3) You didn't know. Fuck that. That ain't acceptable. You seent that shit.
From the very first key attack, a pianists must be able enough to manipulate not only the volume but mostly importantly create an experience. This skill is often called touch or technique. For the job of a pianists is more than just playing notes. The pianists must be able to provoke the full spectrum of human emotions seamlessly and effortlessly. Keeng Cut is showing the the world with his formal introduction "World Culture Keys" that he has what it takes to move the world.
There is a funny thing about train tracks and how they can sometimes become a sort of divisional line for a city. For Tulsa, these same type of tracks have divided the city and left both sides to diverge into two completely different worlds. And for anyone coming from the north side, crossing these tracks means 2 things: 1) This is a completely different world than what you have grown accustom to. 2) You instantly are separated from the idea of being 'normal', your differences are amplified, and your history of being excluded and estranged has only propelled the feeling of being of not that world, but ALIEN. This same message is being told in Surron the 7th's song "918lien".
Track2Track: Pit Stop
Jimmy: Eddie, not only is what you're saying not true, it is wrong and disrespectful for you to discuss Rosa Parks in that way.
For many people a barber isn't just someone who cuts hair; they're your life coach, your therapist, your news anchor to the CNN of the hood, and so much more. But what happens when your barber is in one of your favorite videos? But not cuttin hair, but cuttin up the track. Keezy proves on 'Pit Stop' that his flow is as sharp as his clippers and that sometimes the funnest place to be, is the barbershop.
TRACK2TRACK: SomeONe New
When does a picture explain it all? When the explanation isn't verbal at all, and when a persons' body language is speaking loud and clear. For St. Domonick, his artwork for the single "Someone New" does just that. Inspired by a scene in the video "The Rain" by Oran "Juice" Jones, St. Domonick proves that he is knows about 'real' love and heartbreak. For which he lets you know in his song "Someone new" that this is not your puppy love type of track.

Yo, the sun don't shine forever,
Can you believe Puff Daddy (aka P. Diddy, aka Sean Combs aka some other name he uses to dodge child support) spent 2.7 million dollars to give the world this 8 minute video. This was for the song....... you guessed wrong. "Victory". It even features Biggie and Busta Rhymes. And after 2.7 million do you think anyone knows one fucking verse to this song? Or who made Busta Rymes where that feather suit? The crazy part is that this is the MOST EXPENSIVE rap video ever......
