Pon de Floor

What is so addict­ing with this dope-ass beat?!

I heard it first with Major Lazer’s “Pon de Floor”.

Then later last year in 2010, Diddy-Dirty Money’s “Ass On The Floor”.

And recently, Beyonce’s “Run The World (Girls)”.

What­ever it is—dope beat is dope.

Genki Sudo, Warrior-Poet

I’ve heard of MMA fighter Genki Sudo a while back only to be reminded and refreshed that he was an enter­tainer now (under the same name) by the home­girl Belle.

Here is Genki Sudo’s group World Order, in their music video, “Machine Civ­i­liza­tion”. Music by Genki Sudo/Takashi Watan­abe; words by Genki Sudo.

Ain’t it dope?!

Santigold — “GO

Santigold has never been one to mince words. The Brooklyn-bred musi­cian turned heads with her 2008 epony­mous album and col­lab­o­ra­tions with artists such as The Beastie Boys, Major Lazer and oth­ers. Here, along with the pre­miere of her new track “GO (feat. Karen O),” Santi decodes the mean­ing of the song (which was pro­duced by Q-Tip, Switch and Santi her­self, along with Nick Zin­ner on gui­tar), work­ing with Karen O of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs and the con­cept of the new Amer­i­can Dream.

Lis­ten and read up some more over at Jay-Z’s Life+Times here.

You may down­load the track via 2DopeBoyz here.

Bambu’s “Something” Music Video

Caught sight of this from the home­girl Tri­cia:

In Bam’s words: “Some­thing” is a song that was released this past March, dur­ing Women’s His­tory Month in hopes of rais­ing aware­ness about vio­lence against women. These are the accom­pa­ny­ing visu­als, by Oishi Media, star­ring Tep Castillo. The Hip Hop com­mu­nity rarely takes a firm stance against such issues and often times cel­e­brates such acts – “… all I heard was Poppa don’t hit me no more…” This song will be included on the re-release of Exact Change on the bonus disc titled, Short Changed drop­ping on April 29th.

Tell me this doesn’t hit you to the core.

Here’s the video “Some­thing” by Bambu.
