Erykah Badu // NPR Tiny Desk [video]

My queen Erykah came in an blessed the tiny desk trap w/ her spiritual presence & angelic voice. Loved every second of this but "Green Eyes"the centerpiece of Badu's Tiny Desk performance was my favorite part. It's wide-ranging in scope and musical arrangement and brilliantly executed by the jazz and hip-hop musicians in her backing band. The story of heartbreak is striking enough, but her interpretation showcases her formidable vocal skills. Did U feel that? Erykah Badu is an artist for the ages to enjoy & I've been enjoying the fuck of her & I will continue to do so & if I ever have the blessing to have children? they will enjoy her as well. I will make sure of it. @fatbellybella SET LIST "Rimshot" "Green Eyes" MUSICIANS Erykah Badu (lead vocals), RC Williams (Keys), Braylon Lacy (bass), Cleon Edwards (Drums), Frank Moka (Percussion), Kenneth Whalum (Sax), Keyon Harrold (Trumpet), Dwayne Kerr (Flute) CREDITS Producers: Abby O'Neill, Morgan Noelle Smith; Creative Director: Bob Boilen.

Thundercat // Tiny Desk Concert [video]

Thundercat is like the real life "bass god" but w/ great melodies & quirky singing & songwriting ...I personally thcat has been great especially w/ Flying Lotus but after working on Kendrick Lamar's epic opus "To Pimp A Butterfly" then releasing The Beyond/Where the Giants now playing songs off his 2017 banger album "Drunk." This was a dope tiny desk. Set List "Lava Lamp" "Friend Zone" "Them Changes" MUSICIANS Steven Bruner (vocals, bass); Dennis Hamm (keys); Justin Brown (drums); Miguel Antwood Ferguson (violin) CREDITS Producers: Bobby Carter, Morgan Noelle Smith; Creative Director: Bob Boilen; Audio Engineer: Josh Rogosin; Videographers: Morgan Noelle Smith, Maia Stern, Alyse young; Production Assistant: CJ Riculan; Photo: Jennifer Kerrigan/NPR. @thundercat

Dylan Tran x Rellajamu // 2mg(xx) [video]

Can we discuss the mystery that is Dylan Tran? For a cool 2 or 3 years Dylan was the producer that crafted Two-9's sound along w/ Ceej & Curtis. Dylan then released a few cuts notably Pretty Memories featuring Curtis & Jace. Dylan seemed to draw inspiration from Rellajämü & the pair started making some dope tunes together such as Run It, Therapy, Float on then came the breakthrough joint in my eyes 2mg(xx). I fucked w/ Rell's bars flow sound nice when I'm faded. Maybe ths cut led to Dylan Trans breakthrough mixtape "Cocaine Tears" where 2mg(xx) is immortalized which brings us here to this video. Myles Harris has a cinematic approach 120fps approach to the visual that matched the flow & the bars. This a lo key fav. Forever Fly. Produced x Dylan Tran. Directed x Myles Harris.

Reese La Flare // Reese La Flare LP [audio]

Mr No Stylist himself has released his long awaited self titled debut Reese La Flare. This is dope especially seeing Reese's grind first hand from Reese VS The World until now. From being one of the founding members of Two-9 to his unique fashion or dropping an ATL favorite mixtape w/ Key! I mean lbh your favorite rapper Uzi stole his sauce to cook up, everybody in Atlanta know that and now its Reese time. Reese La Flare is 14 cuts deep. Featuring Ty$ign, Young Thug, Gunna, Yung Bans, Purrp + much more. Fools don't know what to love mre Reese rapping or skating but he's grinded his own lane out either way & I respect that. Atlanta is w/ U Reese n cap. Stream : Reese La Flare : 2018 Empire Music Group.
