Welp, we can all close the door on the Shia Labeouf meme. Put it to rest, this is the best use of the video We’ve ever seen. If you get to 1:11, you’ll see a stupendous rendition of the best part of Harder, Better, Faster Stronger. The pitch bending with the vocals are 100% on point and I would love to hear this remix pushed into a random funky house set. Bomp this loudly if you need some motivational love! It’s short, sweet and well produced. Annoy your co-workers with it on Monday. They’ll only hate you slightly for getting it stuck in their heads.
W0w. A legit new Eazy-E video. From Marty Thomas, the new director’s cut of Real Muthaphuckkin G’s. I had no idea this existed, and I don’t think most of the internet did either. Not a lot to say here, but if you’re a fan of Eazy E, whether you picked up the fandom from Straight Outta Compton, or you’ve been kicking it with NWA since way back into the day, this is a must-watch. It’s prime Eazy-E and the Director’s Cut is everything you love and just a little bit more. For all of my hip hop fans who are maybe a little younger, definitely take a look at this. Take notes. This is where a lot of the flow comes from, and some of it is going back to.
I don’t know how you train a seagull to dance, but someone did and it’s wonderful. Happy Monday!
Kind of a crazy story here. Apparently someone was cleaning out their garage & stumbled on some old (read 2001) mixtapes from Kanye West. And we do mean old, like markers on a cdr old. This kind of stuff may not appear to all of my readers, but if you’re into hip hop beats & the stuff that made Kanye famous before he engaged Mecha Douche 3000 mode, you might like this. The first CD is in the YouTube video above, & the 2nd one can be found here. Don’t say I never gave you anything :D(via Stamp The Wax)
10 minutes of orchestrated & expertly scored hip hop, conducted by JIMEK, a composer who is pretty damn familiar with some of the best hip hop of the last 30 years. Wu Tang, Missy, Dre, and so many more. A whole lot of kudos to the Polish National Radio Orchestra being good sports about this. Gotta say, I prefer this to a lot or over-orchestration that happens when people try and act cute. This is well executed, so kudos to The Awesomer for the tip.
