The soundtrack to Devin The Dude's new film Highway hits digital retailers today, and to celebrate we've got the first music video off the project. Featuring Devin and his crew Coughee Brothaz, "We Get High" is the kind of vintage weed-smoking anthem that fans have come to expect from The Dude.
The Highway soundtrack features classic and previously unreleased material from Devin and friends, including smoke-out apperances from the likes of 2 Chainz, UGK, David Banner, Curren$y, Slim Thug, Smoke DZA, Asher Roth, and many more.
The video, directed by Misha Teixeira, takes place on a white backdrop where Raz is in the midst of playing a game of chess, apparently with himself. The chess board in this visual is a representation of life and how we have to play against ourselves and our decisions to get the results we want in the end. Watch the visual below and stay tuned for the final video off of CakeyPocket$ ``TDOT PIFFERY`` which will be out shortly.
Imagine Fear and Loathing meets Dr. Seuss through the minds of St. Joe Louis and you will understand the vision behind their latest video Millennium Falcon. "We tried to capture the energy and spirit of the song without being a shot for shot rendition of the song." Once we developed some of the elements the great guys over at A Nu Day Media captured the vibe and brought the vision to life.
Songwriter, Konvict Gang CEO & solo artist TE-MONEY presents an introductory song "SALUTE" FT. AKON & FABOLOUS SENDSPACE LINK: http://www.sendspace.com/file/mltslu from his upcoming project "CLOSED MOUTHS DON'T GET FED" coming soon! Although "Salute" was featured on Akon's recent Whoo Kid-hosted "Konkrete Jungle" mixtape, Kon and Te-Money felt this was the perfect song to introduce Te-Money to the music world as a solo artist.
Here's what Akon had to say about his friend: "Te-money is my brother. I have watched him grow from a problem child, to an executive/songwriter, and now an artist. He has been down with the family since day one. The loyalty and talent that this man holds is just phenomenal, and when he asked for me to get behind his project I was more than happy to do it. He has featured on some of my songs and even co wrote some records with me. The creative energy between us is just crazy. I am excited for the world to just hear what Te-money is all about" ~ Akon
MP3: The Black Opera - Black Lair (feat. Melody Betts)
Courtesy Mello Music Group.
Step into The Black Opera’s “Black Lair.” This high-energy track takes us to a place “blacker than Mutombo,” illuminated only by the musical light of French producer Astronote. A dusty piano begins to pound as a subterranean bass line travels through. Melody Betts lends her haunting but angelic voice to add to the ethereal vibe of the track. Our other-worldly Creators complement the frenetic pace of the song, warning listeners that “perception is king, you never know who’s the diablo.”
