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.
