Don't Give Up On Love...

"Laura's Song"

a new song and video from Tanya Morgan's Donwill. from his upcoming album, Don Cusack in High Fidelity. directed by Marques Green. featuring Fringe's Jasika Nicole.

i love the fact that it's a recreation of one of my favorite movies... notice how i didn't say, re-make. god forbid a silver screen re-make of High Fidelity. Donwill's album is going to be in constant rotation, when it hits. this was actually going to be another Ya'll Sleepin On... but i think people are completely sleeping on the entire Tanya Morgan crew. i'll touch up on that later one.. until then... be prepared to watch "Laura's Song" a few times... at least. if you haven't already.

good shit, Donwill!

Ya'll Sleepin' On: Chip Fu

it's been long time coming.... from his haydays with Fu-Schnickens , to this day... this cat has been holding it down with his melodic rapid-fire delivery. nobody can front on Fu-Schnickens... ha! that was like one of the first cd's i ever bought (prior were tons of tape cassettes). who remembers Chip Fu rappin' backwards on Fu-Schnick's "The Movie Scene?" he was one of the handful of people who could pull that off and sound ill. nowadays, it seems like he's moving in silently, with numerous guest appearances.

chip fu is back with an indie sensibility and roots n' culture reggae tinged vibe. he has been working with illmind, kay, nicolay, and pete rock lately... peep him killin' it on Pete Rock's "Ready Fe War." fiyya! don't sleep on his comeback to the masses... actually, you can't call it comeback because he's always been here (came back in 2005)... remember his 8 bars on nas' "where are they now remix?" he kills it. don't sleep on the resurfacing of Chip Fu. 2009 will be his year... i wonder what happened to Moc Fu and Poc Fu????

he JUST dropped this mixtape...

The Sun Is Shining...

accidently left the blinds open last night and was woken up by the sunlight. as i was lying down trying to go back to sleep... it hit me... i'm feelin' good right now, i think i will start my day. go to the gym, eat a nice breakfast, get ready for work...

it has been an hour since i woke up and wrote the aforementioned piece (up above). all i've done is this blog entry...

time to get it goin'...

Evidence - "Chase The Clouds Away"

(one of my favorite songs of his debut solo album, The Weatherman)
