I need suggestions of dope music to create to. Here's my current list. It's in no particular order, but it's what is setting well with me at the moment. Comment your favorite new-ish albums.
Allow her to reintroduce herself... her name is Grey. Songstress Grey wiped the slate clean to give the world the version of herself she wants you to know, hear, see & love.
Often as artist we listen to outside sources, only to realize we are the only source that matters when it comes to our craft. We all come to the fuck this moment and deconstruct what others built for us and start over. I'm sure this is where Grey found herself. Check out IDWL ( I Don't Wanna Leave) above.
IDWL is a three part video reintroduction. You can get more music and visuals at whoisgrey.com
Chance The Rapper released a new video for the track Angels featuring Saba. It's animated by Henru Brantley and it is glorious! Brantley is also releasing a collectible toy called "Fly Boy" tomorrow via his website.
Sighhhhhhhhhhh I still need to get to Chicago.
Marketing done right!!!!!!
because JMSN is fucking greatness!
Happy Taco Tuesday! The Random Art Team and I have been quietly brainstorming Random Art Gallery's next move in the art world.

Hey, change starts individually...
Hey guys.. Let just respect each other..
Oh shit... Black and White didnt work! They still dont care about our Black asses!
Hey guys!! We're fucking up!!
He was more than a glittery glove and dance moves. He warned us bruh. He truly tried to deliver messages through music. The media frenzy surrounding persona kinda over shadowed the music's intent. He was talking to us.
Homies and Local band The Jealous follows up their first track 'Attention Whore' with a more thick, sexy track titled "Ghost". The latest release is savory, smooth, with lots of guitar. I LOVE guitar. It also features Reagan James from The Voice. She's pictured below...she's cute.
You can also check out Attention Whore below. You know, in case you missed it the first round.
gotta love Muse and their willingness to talk about the social struggles or our generation.
Flow. This is all...
Listen to Jay Electronica - Road To Perdition by LAW #np on #SoundCloud http://soundcloud.com/cracktracks504/road-to-perdition
Ye is back to rapping! "All day" sounds like Yeezy took bits and pieces from each album, threw them in a pot.. then found a uniform way to put them all on one track. Yes....even pieces from Yeezus (which I liked) I really hope the new album titled "So Help Me God" has more of this.
Late Night Shows are great for chuckles, sketch comedy, wild celeb stories and music! Jimmy Kimmel strikes with Warren and Kenny G performing Regulators. The ultimate mash up of wtf and awesome. Click and watch!
If you've been paying attention.. I posted about Monika Ashley two weeks ago. She's an amazing songstress from Dallas. While admiring her talent I also took notice of another local talent. Joseph Veazie was featured on a track yet to be released by Monika (I've had her entire project, most songs unreleased for over a year because friend privileges). After hearing Joseph I ran to Google to find more music. In the process I learned he was now in 'The Jealous'. A band comprised of " the cooled ashes of several Dallas musical acts". They're currently working on an Ep and released the first song 'Attention Whore' recently. Definitely keep a watch out for these guys!
Joseph Veazie - Voice
Aaron Anthony - Guitar & Piano
Ryan Sprague - Drums & Percussion
Casey Brajevich - Bass
Lucas Starr - Guitar

Im super excited about R & B again!
Once in a while you find yourself absolutely wow'd by an individual's gift. Many times the person with the most effortless gift is the underdog. 'Tis the story of Monika Ashley. I met this amazingly talented lady while assisting with the filming of her music video for Pinocchio. We had a chance to joke and poke fun at each other mean spiritedly almost immediately after we shook hands. Moments later....CHILLS. She began to sing, and I was overly impressed by one of the strongest voices I've ever heard. Her talent flows with ease! She just sings and you're swooned. Take a click over and here Monika's EP - No Good and previous recordings here.
