Yung Pinch - "Rock With Us" MV

So I was coolin' out and bloggin' last night and got in the youtube loop and came across this video from this long-haired cat with a funky smooth flow. I love the beach vibe and laid back style of the west coast. Kid's pretty slick. Give it a listen. It's almost 2017. Expand your tastes, yo.

Zaniyah - "Champagne Papi"

Florida-raised Canadian artist, Zaniyah has been singing since she was a child. Featured in Caribbean Magazine as Star of The Month, and nominated for the 32nd IRAWMA (INTERNATIONAL REGGAE & WORLD MUSIC AWARDS) for South Florida Emerging Star Under 21, Zaniyah is definitely a name to watch out for. I'm really feeling her voice. Check out her new record, "Champagne Papi".

Essince presents "Feliz Navidad" w/Dj Flaco Flash

Hoe Hoe Hoe. It's about that time, amigos and amigettes. With Christmas only days away it's time for my annual gift to your ears, my super dope Christmixtape with DJ Flaco Flash showcasing some of the best Holiday Hip-hop from your favorites like Snoop, Eazy E, Mr. Lif and more! Listen while you're drinking grown up egg nog and wRapping gifts, hide your wireless earbuds under your hat and slap while you're pretending to listen to stories from your family. The possibilities are endless, just like the dopeness of this project.

Peace and love to you all.

Reverie - "Scheming" MV

For any of my longtime readers/supporters you know about my work with Reverie. It all started with my first interview with her back in 2013. I just got back from Chicago with her where we had her for a 2 show event before heading to NY (where she is now, I'm currently sitting next to the fireplace while watching the new WWE PPV).

She just dropped her new video, "Scheming" produced by the homie, Chase Moore. She's steadily been releasing videos for her forthcoming "Das Klein" EP and this is the 3rd release, shot in Amsterdam during her 8th European tour. Mira:

Jaden Smith "Fallen" MV

I heard some friends talking about this new Jaden Smith video so decided to check it out. It's pretty fresh. Kid's definitely creative. The older he gets the more I hear resemblance to Will's voice. Obviously different but especially when he raps toward the end I hear a little bit of it and I like it.

Respect to all who've been love 'sick'.

G.G. Garcon - "In The Morning"

Got this in my email today. I've been hella behind on my submissions but something made me click play on this. I think it was the quaity/style of the picture above. Usually when someone sends a selfie with the phone still in frame I dismiss it. Maybe it's supposed to be like that...maybe it's the fact I'm sitting in a recliner by the fireplace after making a fat-ass burger and eating some of momma's homemade quiche...but I thought, why not?

This guy's pretty dope. IDK where he's from because I wasn't given any pertinent information besides the link but he can spit. Delivery is on point. Woman on the hook has a nice voice and gives this a nice summertime feel. Warms me up, as I can see SNOW out my window.

But check it out. Takes me back.



Thanks, Cheetos (Tell It To My Heart)

So I've been watching this commercial for a while now with a corny dad driving his kids around when his partner in crime, the new Chester Cheetah cranks up this Jam while cornball dad karaokes into a cheetoh while some tenderonies drive by in a drop top.

The track is kinda slick. I have a thing for late 80s/early 90s pop. So for your listening/and let's be real, VIEWING pleasure, I give you, Taylor Dayne:

Reverie "West Side" MV

Fresh from her, what, 10th European tour?? International recording artist, Reverie just dropped her Nutty P-produced video, “West Side”.

Directed & Edited by Reverie Foto & Enkrypt Los Angeles, the video was shot during her most recent tour of Europe featuring Gavlyn. I booked/tour managed her last 3 national tours and bringing her back to the Windy City for another 2 show event Friday December 16th. I don't REALLY cosign many people, especially in this business but I really support what she does. So any of my chi-town people, I'm in need of some new Mexican restaurants for next week. I'm somewhat of a torta connoisseur.

But I digress, watch her new video “West Side” below!

Be sure to Follow Reverie on social media @ReverieLove and see her LIVE at her 2 show event in Chicago Friday December 16th(click here for tickets and info).
