Kendrick Lamar – A.D.H.D. (Video)


Inspired by “A.D.H.D.”s dark beat and melancholy lyrics which explore a generation in conflict, we find Kendrick Lamar in a video that illustrates the songs universal and age-old theme of apathetic youth. Shot in New York City during the sweltering July Summer heat, “A.D.H.D” is the third video to be released from Kendrick Lamar’s debut album Section.80.

I feel like a lot more could be done with the video and dope concept they had but could of extended it a Little more.

Shad Robinson


Pretty Dope MC right here I got music sent from, Shad Robinson is an West Coast MC and is here trying to make is mark in the rap game with all the many dope MC's coming out his state. From what Ive heard he is solid artist his wordplay and his style def fits to him, but just like all the MC's out Cali he is ill but def has a lot of competition but his mixtape 1989 I received is pretty sick from a solid production to his flow. There is also two videos for "Cardboard"and "We Here" directed by Fredo Tovar who has done videos like "Michael Jordan" for Kendrick Lamar so check those after the jump.

J. Cole – Work Out (Video)


J. Cole Do or Die Moment? Dont be want to be harsh on the man J. Cole but a lot of people are worried about this talented MC not making it to the level where he is suppose to be, the song is ok I guess I am not the big fan of it because I know and YOU know he can deliver better. This album supposedly coming out will show us if he can make it in that world of Mainstream I am not sure he has to bring something really epic and have a killer video behind it to push it out to catch folks attention but I have hope in Cole he delivers when he has to but I'll be waiting just like you guys are.

Kendrick Lamar X Dont Wuwwy Concert


Friday was a really great experience to get to attend Kendrick Lamar concert at 9:30 club brought to you by DCtoBC, the homie Modi really got a dope event together that brought a lot of people together to have just one good time enjoying some great music. The show was great and each performer gave it their all, Schoolboy Q was rocking but I just wish more people rocked with him don't get me wrong he got some folks to get into it by his enthusiasm to perform which I thought was epic and shows his love for his craft but it could also been not many people might of not caught on to Schoolboy yet but his set was dope and had me rocking the whole time. Kendrick came on got the crowd live and let me not forget my man Kendrick brings the ladies LOL, many folks were discussing how many beautiful females in attendance that night and a lot knew all the lyrics and went crazy for my man. Kendrick set was dope performed a lot of section.80 got the crowd into came in strong with the Heart, wish he performed some more of his older stuff from like the E.P and O.D like songs like Faith, Vanity Slave and Wanna Be Heard but I was not dissappointed because he ended the show with the Classic Michael Jordan with the help of Schoolboy Q keeping the crowd rocking. The show was sick I left in excited mood to listen to more, lost voice, under the influence of  just a great time enjoyed it and definitely need to see him live agai,

J-Artz -The Yang Effect


Presenting new artist to the site of J-Artz, from the ways of NY to the DMV this is very talented MC and because diverse style he has through his music you see many different dope skills that stand out. Cali Dreaming, Feel Good, Microphone Eater and I Lost You are tracks that really stood out for me.

In the late 90’s a bright kid by the name of Devoughn “J Artz” Walker left his familiar Yonkers, New York neighborhood and migrated with his family to the Washington DC metropolitan area. A few years later as he traveled back and forth from upstate New York and Maryland, Artz began to write imaginative rhymes totally unreflective of his time spent on Walnut Street, School Street and the no longer existing Mulford Gardens Projects in Yonkers. As a veteran MC whom is continually honing his skills on the notorious U Street Washington DC music scene, Artz has emerged as a well-rounded lyricist looking to make his mark nationally as an artist. During the onset of his career, Artz formulated his rhymes to the soft rock and alternative soundscapes that he interestingly preferred to contemporary rap. His early predispositions to Coldplay and Jamiroquai cultivated an eclectic style, which is as difficult to draw comparisons within the sphere of hip-hop. Artz composes his records much like a Jean-Michel Basquiat painting; abstract and colorful narratives run alongside musical canvases that draw inspiration from a wide range of emotions and styles. His latest body of work “The Yang Effect” displays Artz confronting inner demons and waging warfare with the daunting obstacle of self-doubt. The “Yang Effect” is led by the single “Can You Dig Itwhose video has attracted more than 50,000 views on Youtube. On this second offering, Artz executively produces a project, which not only boasts its very own distinctive sound but also displays his versatility as an artist. Other than a few industry instrumentals, The Yang Effect showcases original production from Artz’ close knit musical circle which includes a few of his family members. Those who enjoy progressive sounds and movie like narratives will surely enjoy “The Yang Effect.”
