The disappearance of music videos from mainstream video outlets is both a blessing and a curse...it becomes harder to get mainstream exposure for videos but on the other hand we as artists now have full creative control....
and with that control videos like this are made.
With a hypnotizing hook and great imagery, I had to post this video. I can't say I'm familiar with Billy but I'll def. be on the look out now...his CD might make a great Xmas gift, too.
I was going through one of the hiphop magazines I bought in Japan and decided to check out some of the MCs' websites. I found a video I kinda like. A dude named Young Hastle did the V mix (not the remix, the v-mix) for one of my favorite articles of clothing, the V-Neck.
I'm glad someone finally appreciates this timeless piece of apparel. My grandpa [RIP} was a stylish man and I always remember him rocking some Perry Ellis and Ralph Lauren V necks.
Anyway this track features some other Japanese rappers: Y's, Ohli-Day, Yuki, Jaysman, and some other dude whose name is cut off on the Youtube title. lol. (gomen [sorry]).
My last show on my Japan tour was in Osaka at the Summer Sonic after party at club AtlantiQs. A dude by the name of DJ Tsucchi Raida rocked and MURDERED it. He played the original records for some of dopest samples around...
I don't know HOW he found those records but he did and he's murder on 'em. Check this out and vibe out. Dude is NICE.
I don't know TOO much of the back story for these toys...mostly because the site I learned about them from is in French and je ne parle pas bien le france. So yea...I'll let the art speak for itself and if you want to learn/see more visit http://www.fubiz.net/2010/11/17/orange-paperquest/

I've always really loved this song and I'm sure a lot of us can relate. I felt the need to vent and here's my version. Written in about 20 minutes (surprising what you can produce when inspired, right?).
I've been listening to Detroit's own Dan Sykes since he went by FrozD back when we were in high school posting our music on rapmusic.com Thanks to the internet I found him and his new music. Check the new song "Rock this B*tch".
