I’ve been slipping in getting to the #morningmotivation, but when I saw this I just had to put this up. I’m actually working on this myself. Need to keep repeating this everyday. Hope everyone is having a great day
Common has released a short film called “Black America Again” produced by Ava Duvernay. The same person the produced Selma and The 13th.
With the film reaching a bit over 21 minutes, the film offers what Common says is “a meditation” on the album’s content, stitching together a set of black-and-white visual poems. Intermittently, Common pops up, rapping stripped down verses from the album on abandoned streets, accompanied by a beatboxing drummer. Check out the short film below and let us know what you think in the comments below.
Good morning everyone. Hope everyone is having a wonderful start to there day and wishing nothing but the best. But hey if your not having a great start just know that it can only get better. So shake it off and be brave and go out there and get it.
Vince Staples opens up about the rampant high school drop out rate and the glorification of drugs in rap music. This is so refreshing to have a new artist out talking about what is real and not selling out to what is popular. Check out this clip he did with CNN.
I can remember watching this “Fade to Black” documentary for the first time. I was in my apartment,just ripped off the packaging of the dvd. Just recently purchased what was supposed to be Jay’s last album and I was geeked. Ive been a fan of his since “Vol 2… Hard Knock Life”, had to go back and listen to the albums before to get some more history on Jay but that is for another post. Back to this clip, at the time I was just starting to make music myself and also djing at the time. Timbaland has always been at the top of my list of favorite producers right behind the great Dr. Dre. Think I washed this portion of the video maybe 50 times back to back and was totally inspired to hit the keyboards, drum machine, and computer to get started. The video gave me so much inspiration that I wanted to just be in the studio all the time and create music on the regular. Watch the video clip above and I promise you if making music is what you love to do this will give a needed push to make you never wanna quit on that dream.
