Childish Gambino - "Sober"- Music Video

Childish Gambino debuts the video for “Sober,” one of the tracks from his digital-only EP, Kauai, from early October. As much as we criticize most music videos for doing nothing to enhance the songs, Gambino deserves an equal amount of kudos for making each of his visuals –“Sweatpants,” “3005,” and the short film for Clapping For No Reason, all collaborations with director Hiro Murai – have been remarkably well done and entertaining. For “Sober,” he’s back at it, trying to woo another young miss with his song and dance routine. He falls short, of course, but that’s okay since it means we’ll get another update in the story soon enough.

#TBT- Minnie Riperton

ok, so I know people have been seeing the trailers for the movie Inherent Vice, right? The very first trailer they aired featured a girl talking with real soulful , blues heavy, church choir feel type song in the back ground and I have been searching for it for weeks. Call me late to the party, but i finally figured it out that it was Minnie Riperton, the same woman famous for singing "Lovin You... is easy because your beautiful".  mmhmm. The world's most recognizable love song. Long story short, I've been enjoying some throwback r&b this past week , pretty much indulging in Ms Riperton's work & I thought I'd share a little of that magic with you. Never a bad time for some old school soul. Check out "Les Fleurs" featured in Inherent Vice, Lovin' You (in case some of you need a reminder) and a new favorite of mine "Every Time He Comes Around" on her early 70's  album Perfect Angel. Enjoy!

Tre-E ft. Hu$tle - YND (Official Video)

"We are opposed around the world by a monolithic & ruthless conspiracy". Whether looking to the past, examining the present, or speculating the future, the words always ring true. Along with that ,however, one driving force always pushes back against the ways of the old men or our parents (whether young or old, you know the feeling): the present generation (i.e youth) always find a way to make their presence felt & add a different ingredient to the concoction (we'll call it chemical X). The song "Young Nigga Do It" drives this point home. The songs speaks on the vibrancy of youth. These are dark times that we are in, where youth are gunned down by many, even those thought to protect & serve, but somehow we manage to find a way to live. Forgetting the bullshit, we find a way to live, love, & enjoy the presence of FVMLY. It's almost as if the lyrics provide a snapshot of a day in the life of an inner city child. We're provided with images of the "old timers" kicking back over a couple brews. Youth enjoying themselves amongst friends & family alike. Blowing a couple trees (not a verbatim quote). "Boxing the madness/taking the hits". It isn't easy living the life. From young to old, we all have our own battles. Our parents can't fight every war we have, so it's up to us "young niggas" to somehow handle the issues we face today. Topics of police brutality or racism, though around during the time of our parents, must ultimately be solved by us. But as much as it suggests that we are the change, it also speaks on our consistency. At our roots, we are all the same. Still gonna say "fuck these haters & get this paper". Hoes will still be a topic of conversation. One can even go further to say that though the young nigga can be a trailblazer or one who opens new paths, he never forgets where he started. At the center of the being of change...it's still FVMLY first at the end of the day. That's how a YND. - Tre-E

Good Vibes 4 Christmas - Petty "I Cant Breathe" ft Samuel Jackson

As we begin to come together and celebrate Christmas, we all need to sit back and really appreciate the time we are able to spend with our loved ones. With the news breaking early this morning of death of Antonio Martin, yet another civilian tragically murdered by a cop, our hearts are even more saddened with the type of violence that has been taking place over the past couple of months. This holiday season should be spent realizing that our lives our taken for granted, embracing our loved ones, and silently mourning those we've lost to such senseless violence. Petty, one of the frontrunners of the hip hop scene in Nashville, dropped "I Can't Breathe", a song speaking about these crimes and coming together to solve a problem that has taken over our society once again. The song is presented with a hard-hitting look into what has occurred these past few months with examples of rallying, protests, violent outbreaks, etc and is inspired by Samuel L. Jackson's "I Can't Breathe" social media campaign. Check out the song and video below and pass it along!
