Do You Luv Me...

scene from ANGEL A

Angela: "Do you love me?"
Andre: "Since the first day... From the first second."
Angela: "Say It."
Andre: "It's hard to say."
Angela: "Do you know why? Because no one ever told you so. Its difficult to love yourself when you can't see your reflection."

In some cases, how can the desire to GIVE develop when one has never felt the joy of RECEIVING?

Conditional Love? Maybe...
Selfless? No so much...
Selfish? Not at all.

Just a [not so] random thought...

J*DaVeY – Boudoir Synema: The Great Mistapes (FreEP)

Not too much I need to say about this.
People always have opinions and comments.
When it comes to J*Davey, NONE of it matters to me.

Just the LISTENER and the MUSIC.

People tend to over analyze when they don't understand.
Keep cutting the Steak into small, digestible pieces.
Missing the point that the whole thing IS the "point".

Try It...

Lovecats, We Missed You.

1 O.A.K. - Lovecats from The Mighty Fifty on Vimeo.

Its out the vault yall. The first single from my upcoming covers project with fellow HNRL freshman, 1-O.A.K.

1-O.A.K.- "Lovecats" (prod by Trackademicks)

I'ma just say it. This song is just the starting point. I'm REALLY feeling the work we've done around this. I've earned a rep for a lot of the remixes I've done- the release of this takes it just another step further.

The whole point of remixing something in my eyes is to create something new. Whether paying homage to the old, or introducing fans of one genre to another they may be unfamiliar with- the music is the bridge.

Before even doing this project, I asked myself, "Is it sacrilege to cover songs from some of the greatest artists of our time? Who am I to touch (and possibly destroy) such beautiful compositions that mean so much to so many people."

I've contemplated that. Long and hard.

And I've come to a conclusion a conclusion:

uFck It. "I'm the best mayne, I deeeeeeeeed it!"

Well, at least I deeeed it.

I'm A Soldier of Love.

Damn Right. I'm a Soldier of Love.

Never Doubt.
Never Underestimate.

Sade has done it once again! This song BLAPS. I cannot emphasize how much I can't wait for this album. Right on time.

Sade- "Soldier of Love"

And just in case you "forgot" about my affinity for Sade...

Sade- "Give It Up" (Trackademicks Re-Edit)

Go Play Now.

BackTRACKin': The Blow Monkeys- "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"

The Blow Monkeys- "It Doesn't Have To Be That Way"

So the other day, I happened to be watching the fourth installment of one the most terrifically horrible movie franchises ever. Police Academy. Somehow it just didn't age well. Surprising, I know.

Fortunately, it wasn't a complete waste of my time. As soon as the movie progressed to a montage of Zed frolicking with his love interest in a field (3:25 min into this video right here), I remembered one reason I like this movie. The awesome Uber-80's Blow Monkeys song in the soundtrack.

As far as the Blow Monkeys go, there are a couple other tracks I'm feeling as well on their album, She Was Only a Grocer's Daughter... namely "Out With Her" and "The Day After You".

Wham! Bam!

Foreign Exchange "Daykeeper" up for a Grammy!!!!

The Foreign Exchange feat. Muhsinah - "Daykeeper" from The Foreign Exchange on Vimeo.

I've been in such tunnel vision lately. I didn't even think to peep the Grammy Nominations that just came out. So when my homegirl told me that Foreign Exchange had been nominated for "Daykeeper", I FLIPPED.

I damn near feel like I've been nominated! This whole album has been pretty significant to me this year, both as an artist and personally...

Congrats to my homie Phonte and the whole Foreign Exchange family. For real.

That's What's Up.
