N*E*R*D “Hypnotize You” [video]

Here’s the video for the new N*E*R*D single “Hypnotize You” co-produced by Daft Punk.

The new N*E*R*D album Nothing just dropped this past Tuesday.

Alright, the Manifesto clean-up is almost complete, so we’ll be back here much more often.

Stumbled upon this video tonight thanks to my man D-Sisive.  This is a cut off the new Trillionaire$ album, who are Metty The Dertmerchant & Evil Ebenezer of Vancouver based Sweatshop Union.

“Hollywood Squares” is appropriately shot in Los Angeles, Venice Beach mostly, and the video looks great!  To boot the track features Moka Only and an appearance by now LA resident Frank Nitt, and flips the same sample as one of my favorite Pete Rock INI joints.  The track is off the Trillionaire$ By Hook or By Crook album out now (I’d give you a URL where to buy it but Sweatshop owe me some loot, so that’s as far as I’ll lead you to the guys).

Directed by Stuey Kubrick.

Nesby Phips “Blue and Green” [video]

Creative Control has been featuring some great artists within their camp, including cats like Curren$y, Stalley, Noe, Genesis, and the resurgence of Ski Beatz.

Well, following the recent release of 24-Hour Karate School, Ski Beatz has managed to secure permission from Sony Music and the Miles Davis Estate to re-work any of the 53-album deep  Miles Davis Collection.  I’m sure Dame Dash had something to do with inking this deal – but a great look for Ski.

Thanks for POUND Magazine fresh new website for the lead on this one.

Jessica Kaya “Heavy” (feat. & prod. by Rich Kidd)

Hand down, this Toronto based vocalist, is the most sultry soul voice I’ve heard in the city.

The super soulful Jessica Kaya has appeared as a guest on various records over the past few years, as well as on-stage with some of Toronto’s best doing back-ups.

She’s now preparing to break out on her own and I’m super excited about this one.

The first glimpse of Jessica Kaya to many may come via Rich Kidds most recent installment in the We On Some Rich Kidd Shiiiit! series, Vol. 4 which features Jessica Kaya on the track “Heavy” featuring Rich Kidd and Richie Hennessy.

Download “Heavy” here.

Rubble Kings documentary (trailer)

A forthcoming documentary based on the NYC gang wars, in-depth documentation of this period and the subsequent uniting of these gangs around the emerging culture and music of hip hop.

From 1968 to 1975, gangs ruled New York City. Beyond the idealistic hopes of the civil rights movement lay an unfocused rage.  Neither law enforcement nor social agency could end the escalating bloodshed.  Peace came only through the most unlikely and courageous of events that would change the world for generations to come by giving birth to hip-hop culture.

With a great love of the urban arts community, Tiff has also co-hosted the One City Series, “Behavior” in 2009.
