Locals Only III Continued: The Physics

The Physics is trio out of Seattle. I recently started listening to them and I really enjoy their sound. It's truly relaxing. It's that type of music where you can be on your porch with a couple of friends and just hanging out. If you are a fan of the 90's hip hop music scene then I guarantee you that you will enjoy their music. They actually remind a little of Slum Village which is quite refreshing knowing that the main members of Slum Village have passed away. Their legacy lives on and this crew definitely has been influenced by the soothing sounds of Slum Village.

Wishing On A Star

Rose Royce is an American soul and R&B band. The group is best known for several hit singles including "Car Wash," "I Wanna Get Next to You," "Wishing on A Star", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" and "I'm Going Down".

Wishing on a star has been sampled, covered, remixed and anything musically you can think of done to it. It is essentially an amazing record. I'm going to post 3 versions, Rose Royce, Jay-Z and a new artist that I found on Vimeo by the name of Avatar.

Jay-Z - Wishing On A Star

Locals Only III

Similar to the first Locals Only post, this one will feature an amazing director with an ear for great music. Jon Jon Augustavo, a Seattle native, graduated from Washington State University in the communications program. He's a truly creative director, on this blog I've already posted several videos of his by Eighty4 Fly and Scribes but believe me when I tell that there will be several other ones.

Jon Jon has created a series titled "Good Times" with the intent of offering more that music videos by hip hop artists but also give the viewers and the fans a story of the artists. The first installment features Chicago area, DC-born rhymesayer, Dave Coresh. "Dave Coresh scribes melodies that bob heads, moves feet and affects the crowd with his powerful vibe. As an MC, one must be able to Move the Crowd, and with smooth beats accompanying his distinctive flow, the crowd falls victim to his vibrant charisma. Such is the bravado of Dave Coresh. Proclaimed as the ‘Boy Wonder in the Flesh’, Dave Coresh hails from DC. He moved to Chicago to live with his aunt after his mother was stunted by drug abuse and father became impeded by an arrest. The roots of his musical influences stem from family ties, which have a history of Church Choir singers and band members jazzing to the beat of the Go-Go Music Movement. Drawn to Hip Hop by the competitive aspect of Battle Rap, the skills of Coresh developed through countless evenings Freestyling against an array of lyrical opponents. With intricate lyrics holding universal concepts that a wide range of listeners can groove to without hesitation, Dave’s goal is to spark emotions through the use of his words. It’s been a year since Dave began to pursue a career in Hip Hop, and as his buzz grows, he stays humbled by the opportunity to spread his music."

The second post features a movie type music video to a soulful R&B joint.

Be Dif'rent!!

"This Newburgh-based collective of emcees, poets and musicians released an album titled Day Before Sound earlier in 2010. They approached Noisemaker Media to produce their music video campaign with the intent to create a visual piece that would highlight their eclectic sound. "Be Dif'Rent" sets a precedent for Director Mark Carranceja's work as he reinforces his catalog with a visual tour de force that introduces the Hip Hop world to the ReadNex Poetry Squad. To Be Dif'Rent is to uncover ones talents and passions.

To Be Dif'Rent is to follow one's intuition rather than exterior conditions.

To Be Dif'Rent means to embrace yourself for who you are and be comfortable within your own skin.

Witness the evolution of the ReadNex Poetry Squad and understand what it means to Be Dif'Rent."

This song represents the power of Hip Hop music and the capability it holds in influencing, motivating and teaching a wide range of audience.

Eighty4 Fly

I don't have specific information on this artist but I came across his music while I was doing my usual searching on Vimeo. He falls in the category of a trendy artist. He's very up to date with his music while articulating the usual current hip hop topics; money, weed, fashion and women. Don't make the mistake of interpreting that previous statement as a bad review because if that was the case Eighty4 Fly wouldn't be on my blog but his music is unique because it feels authentic.

Cool, calm and suave.

EIGHTY4 FLY - HipHopSh!t


This a collaborative mixtape by Eighty4 Fly and Teal, a producer from Seattle, titled The Raging Vampire Remixes. It features Eighty4 Fly's music but mixed in with electro instrumentals produced by Teal.

4:57, Laws: Runaway

No this will not be another freestyle over Kanye's "Runaway", but it will be the introduction of a new artist that I found.

Laws hails from Spring Hill, Florida. He's a very witty artist but I haven't heard all of his work to make a correct judgment or assessment on him. I immediately fell in love with this song on his 4:57(check it out) mixtape hosted by Don Cannon, I suggest you check it out it's a good one. I will say this though, the kid lacks a solid flow, it does at times get rather boring but it depends on the content, I guess.

The song I'm about to post was produced by The J.U.S.T.I.C.E LEAGUE, and it's a remake of the Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs Runaway. He does a great job at making this song easy to relate too.

Also, make sure to check out his newest mixtape that features production from The J.U.S.T.I.C.E LEAGUE, Your Future Favourite Rapper

The Twilight Zone: The Masks

Here is another incredible episode of The Twilight Zone. This episode focuses on the importance of being beautiful internally rather than externally. It is a perfect example of the shallowness and negative traits that we all somewhat have.

It's like Kanye West rhymed, "The prettiest people do the ugliest things, for the road to riches and diamond rings".

C'est Stromae

Since majority of my family lives in Europe it was only a matter of time until I found out about this incredible song that was easily my anthem for this passing Summer. It's as if he's constructing a mash up between the 90's electro synths and the current hip hop style of lyrical delivery. He's a pretty dope individual.

Adriano Celentano: L'Elvis Presley Italiano

Adriano Celentano, born in Milan, is an Italian singer, songwriter, comedian, actor, film director and TV host. He was influenced by none other than his idol Elvis Presley and the 1950s rock revolution. For the last 40 years he has released an impressive forty albums; comprising twenty nine studio albums, three live albums and eight compilations. In the 1970’s and 1980’s his films were commercially triumphant and he was labelled as the king of the Italian box office in low budget movies. As an actor, he is most remembered for, Serafino (1968), directed by Pietro Germi, as his best acting performance. Adriano has been able to establish relevancy in Italy and that is quite an impressive resume.

His music is truly great and inspirational. As mentioned before a big shout-out to my dad for playing this type of music around me. You can sit back and enjoy the sounds. Some have even gone to great lengths as crowning him King of Italian Music. I know very little about Italian music but I do know what my ears enjoy listening too, and this is just great timeless music.

Mina & Adriano Celentano – Che T’aggia Di
This is a personal favourite of mine. I can’t tell you why but I love it. It’s a husband and wife engaged in some type of argument or dispute. It’s really incredible and quite catchy.

Adriano Celentano – Per Sempre

Adriano Celentano - Per Averti

Adriano Celentano - Amore No

Locals Only: T.Shirt

This artist goes by the name of T.Shirt,  and believe me he has this confident, mellow, charismatic and gritty flow that is sure to win over your ears. His beat selection is quite impressive, full of soul and charisma.

What sets him apart from all the artists I've promoted on this blog is that he's very artistically creative. It was the first trait I picked up once I visited his blogs. He's quite intelligent and plus shows this humble love towards the arts whether it's music, photography and fashion.

"There's nothing better than making something with your friends. Sometimes, I just gotta forget about the outside world listening in and remember who I really made this for first and foremost. When I've rapped for myself in the past I never got the kind of response I wanted.. it's only when I rap for us.. when I take how I feel, what Darvin goes through, Dred, how Ronin's felt, my brothers.. I'm just trying to tell our story.. and I'm just trying to get it right.. inspire us. I think J Cole said it best, "My story ain't the only one I'm trying to tell" - that shit just rang so true to me. We are the tan-face children. We are the pioneers. Maybe you have to know all of us to understand.. maybe it gives you a familiar feeling." - T.Shirt

Keep this dude on your radar.

T.Shirt - Never LOL

T.Shirt - Hip Hop

    The Remake of a Remake

    Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell - You're All I Need To Get By

    A classic to many soul music lovers this is the original version released in 1968.

    Method Man & Mary J Blige - You're All I Need

    In 1995, Meth & Mary J, re-released the classic that has carved it's name in the hearts of many hip hop heads. This song is full of memories and emotions. I enjoy it more than the original and that is a very bold statement.

    Wale & Tawiah - The Remake of a Remake (All I Need)

    In 2008 a new face emerges in the hip hop world, and he goes by the name of Wale. He released an incredible mixtape titled, The Mixtape About Nothing, that was inspired by Seinfeld, the series. The mixtape samples comprehensively from Seinfeld, and Wale delivers his verses with frequent references to jokes from the series. Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who plays the character Elaine Benes in Seinfeld, appears on the mixtape. This song was my favourite on the mixtape, it's a great ode that mixes both classics into one.

    The Twilight Zone: The Eye of the Beholder

    In 1959 a popular half-hour American television anthology series created by Rod Serling titled The Twilight Zone that is noted for its moral messages that focused on humanity without going into political messages hit the Television air waves. Each episode is a mixture of self-reliant fantasy, science fiction or horror, frequently concluding with a surprising ending. Rod Serling was brilliantly cautious in making sure that the unexpected twist was not for its own sake, as it usually broadcasted irony with what had happened before.

    The Eye of the Beholder is one of The Twilight Zone's most adored and famous episodes, and with great reason; it's incredibly written, astoundingly executed, and packs a never forgetting fable like twist. While it's only a simple allegory, it plays an important role in symbolizing the superficial and judgmental mind of the Human race. The episode takes the form of a vessel that’s criticizing discrimination and segregation of our overly opinionated society.

    I don't want to ruin this amazing episode so I suggest you watch it.

    Additionally, his creative mixtapes with artists such as Adele, Kanye West, Coldplay, Jay-Z and Sean “Diddy” Combs are considered “classics” and are the talk of both the street and the “blogosphere.” -

    Two years ago, Mick Boogie and Terry Urban set the music world on fire with an unprecedented mash-up of hip hop icon Jay-Z and English alternative rock group, Coldplay titled, Viva La Hova.  The project included production from the talented Mick Boogie, Terry Urban, 9th Wonder, Cookin’ Soul, The Kickdrums, nVMe, 6th Sense, Remot, Max Tannone, The Amps, Judah, CJ Luzi, Gooch, Garbs Infinite and Hasan Insane .

    Less Than Zero: Soundtrack

    Less Than Zero is a 1987 American drama film barely based on the novel of the same name by Bret Easton Ellis. The film stars Andrew McCarthy as Clay, a college freshman who is returning home for Christmas, when he found out that his girlfriend Blair (Jami Gertz) had been engaging in sexual conduct with his high school friend, Julian, (Robert Downey Jr.) who is also a drug addict. Now at Christmas, Clay discovers Blair is still trying to recreate the good times, as if nothing has happened while he was away and witnesses Julian sinking further into drugs and being harassed by his drug dealer to whom he owes money too.

    The movie highlights and explores the culture of wealthy youths in Los Angeles and enforces a strong anti-drug message. It is definitely worth a watch.

    This is the soundtrack,

    1. Aerosmith - Rockin' Pneumonia & The Boogie Woogie Flu

    2. Roy Orbison - Life Fades Away

    3. Poison - Rock And Roll All Nite

    4. LL Cool J - Going Back To Cali

    5. Glenn Danzig & the Power and Fury Orchestra - You And Me

    6. Slayer - In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida

    Like the fire needs the air, I won't burn unless you're there

    Maze, soul slash quiet storm band, was established in San Francisco, California in the early 1970s. It was founded by Frankie Beverly, Philadelphia native, who is an American singer, songwriter and producer. They have released six albums with five of them receiving Gold status sales.

    This is one of my favourite songs by Maze. It's titled "I Need You".

    "Like the flowers need the rain like a blind-man needs his cane, I need you
    Like the darkness needs the night and the moon-glow needs the light,I need you
    Like the children need to play they laugh and sing from day to day, I need you

    I found out about you I can't live without you

    Like a person needs a soul like the winter needs the cold, I need you

    Like the fire needs the air I won't burn unless your there, I need you

    Like a baby needs to cry if you go I swear I'll die, I need you"

    Fast forward a few years in the future and the song is sampled in the "Hustler's Ambition" record by 50 Cent. Believe me, this song will not disappoint as well.

    Nesby Phips

    Nesby Phips, Emcee/Producer from New Orleans, is the owner & operator of Bakadahouse Music, a production company which started in 2003, and long time associate of Curren$y. Last year Phips released the first edition of the Phips Files titled “The Phipstape”, but he’s mostly been recognized for the hard work he’s put in with underground heavyweight and childhood friend , Curren$y. The two have connected to make underground hits such as “Top of the Money”, “The Seventies”, “Lost in Transit”, “Mazaltov” & “Wave Race”.

    Not to be confused as a tag-along to the current success Curren$y is having but more of a contributor. This artist holds his own weight on the microphone. Nesby is one artist that you should keep on your radar.

    Dom Kennedy: Life As I Know It

    Here's a series started by Dom Kennedy.

    In other news this is an extend version of his Locals Only song.

    The Saviour: Jay Electronica

    There is a lot of speculation to whether Jay Elec will sell his soul once he enters the mainstream world. They believe MTV will change him. I strongly disagree.

    Let's say he did have a video on MTV. I can only see greatness coming from it.
    You have an artist who is keen on who he is. He knows what he represents. Can you imagine Jay Electronica giving you a visual for his Renaissance music?

    To me, Jay Elec is a reincarnation of Talib, Mos Def and Scarface.

    Why Scarface? Because Jay gives me that vibe. That real vibe. That everything I say is for my listeners.

    Jay is a product of real hip hop. Having somebody of his calibre have a video on MTV will be revolutionary. You'll have an artist who will not sell out. An MC who is independent and has a powerful voice in underground hip hop. Jay Elec may be the only hope of making underground the new commercial.

    That will be a day I desperately await because I'm tired of seeing Plies and Soulja Boy make videos and make music about irrelevant topics. I need powerful music. Music that exploits the ups and downs of life. Music that is real. Music with a feel. That club stuff is all cool, but real music is eternal.

    This is Jay Electronica, this 0:47 clip will convince you that he is the soul that might change how Hip Hop artists write their music. Exhibit A - Jay Electronica

    Here's some of his recent music.

    Khusara Khusara! We Be Big Pimpin !

    If you live in North America there is absolutely no way that you would never be able to hear this melody.

    Hossam Ramzy - Khusara Khusara

    What makes listening to this all the better is that I can actually recite the Jay-Z lyrics while listening to it. Not take anything away from Timbaland, but I think it would of have sounded better if the actual song was done this instrumental, the whole thing. It would give it such a authentic feel. Nonetheless, this an incredibly dope composition.

    And let's RI-I-I-I-I-IDE

    Middle School Love: Fabolous

    The middle school years where a big part of my life because they are the years that I really started to listen to Hip Hop, being a new immigrant and all. An artist that really caught my ear was, Fabolous.

    Fabolous really has a way with words whether it's speaking to the ladies, the clubs or just forming together punchlines. He's a great artist because he's consistent and he's flexible in his content. It's his signature laid back flow that capitalized his success.

    Now the videos. If you were born in 1990 and you're a fan of hip hop how can you not love these songs? Every dance played these, every girl liked these which means you have had to like these songs. These songs are tied to memories about crushes, lunch breaks and dances.

    Fabolous & Tamia - I'm So Into You

    Babygirl you know my situation..
    Fabolous, Lil Mo & Mike Shorey - Can't Let You Go

    Fabolous & Mike Shorey - Baby

    Fabolous, Jagged Edge & Diddy - Trade It All Part 2

    Keeping it across the globe

    Following my latest post, I remembered one song that has stuck to my head when I visited my family in Italy. I was in grade 7 and I don't know how to describe it but I have the feeling that this a sweet song. It's so warm and calming.

    Since the user has disabled embedding on YouTube, CLICK HERE to watch it.


    La Musica di Silenzio: Andrea Bocelli

    One of the great things about my father is his musical taste. He has this magical ear that prefers some of the best vocalists I have ever heard. His musical preference is quite amazing. He was raised on Italian music and to this day I thank him for playing them around me because the vocals and the composition of the music will be locked and sealed within my heart eternally. A perfect example of what music from the soul is.

    One of my favourite artists is Andrea Bocelli. Mr. Bocelli is a blind Italian tenor, multi-instrumentalist and classical crossover artist. The man is often credited with the most beautiful voice in the world. Truthfully, there is nothing I can conjure up and write that will truly capture the splendour of his voice and the bloom in his music. If you ever want to start your day on a positive note make sure his music is a part of your morning routine.

    Plus working at an Italian Banquet Hall for the last six years of my life has really helped me develop a strong liking for his music. The way they embrace his music and sing it word for word is such a priceless and motivating experience. I'm not Italian nor do I speak Italian but there is something about this language that is soothing.

    If you are a fan of contemporary music, best believe this artist will become a favourite of yours.

    Creative Control: Ski Beatz & Curren$y

    This dynamic combo has made a huge impact on me. Best known for his work on the timeless classic, "Reasonable Doubt", Ski Beatz is a fan favourite when it comes to production in hip hop. Curren$y is a New Orleans veteran who is as of late receiving the attention he's always deserved. His lazy flow and eccentric rhyme plot and ostensibly thoughts have always been the pedigree of his appeal. Regardless of what subject he starts on, women and weed will eventually stroll its way into the verse. It’s part of the train-of-thought personality of his style. I don't personally support the lifestyle he promotes but I can't deny that musically his work is exceptional. This post will feature some of his recent videos which have all been directed by Creative Control.
