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.

Just trippy see­ing that the video was shot in my bro Exaktoh/Glen’s+Wella’s pad. It’s actu­ally a dope place. Pretty nice size loft right smack in DTLA (near The Edi­son). I heard the build­ing is actu­ally being used for another shoot by Maroon 5; at least near it, so far.

Any­ways, dope stuff.

The Lonely Island Live Debut Performance

Twitpic from 20090512 Late Night with Jimmy Fallon

Just in case you missed it, The Lonely Island rocked the mic last night for their live debut per­for­mance at Late Night With Jimmy Fal­lon. They per­formed “I’m on a Boat” but Black Thought filled in for T-Pain with an auto-tune. What scary is that they sound good HA!

K’naan — The Dusty Foot Philosopher

I don’t know if I have heard of K’naan a while back but after expe­ri­enc­ing a glimpse of ABC’s fea­tur­ing Chubb Rock dur­ing an ABDC break I was hooked. I don’t want to spend too much time talk­ing about the expe­ri­ence, as its best to leave you to have a go at it.

I’d say to quickly cop his lat­est album, Trou­ba­dour, and have a lis­ten. It’s guar­an­teed not to dis­ap­point your ears, your mind and your heart.

Lykke Li and Hip-Hop

Sick!
