Video: Typical Cats - "Reflections From the Porch"
As Chicago winds up another long, hot summer, plagued by violence and riddled with tragedy, Typical Cats lob in another time bomb, a Qwa solo slab entitled "Reflections from the Porch." Anchored by a Natural beat awash in harmonies, bittersweet guitar, and, as always, dust-covered knocking drums, "Reflections" is a two and a half minute masterwork, a miniature history, and a meditative moment from one of the premier MCs of his generation.

Video: J-Zone Uses Broken Equipment to Make New Album
You know I hate texting, still use a Walkman and have run a small business since 1999 without owning a printer; but did you know I'm also a Luddite when I'm working on music? Of course I am!
I don't shoot a lot of videos, but here's one of me in the studio during the making of my upcoming album, Peter Pan Syndrome, using the most raggedy, busted, broken, obsolete equipment I could find, including my two girlfriends (cassette decks), Betsy and Diana. I also played the drums wearing a carpal tunnel brace, used a constantly shedding, cheap-ass Ikea rug to muffle the studio and still use the computer monitor that probably came with the Commodore 64! It's all about limitations and mistakes. Perfection is for suckers.
Tony Del FreshCo is gearing up for the release of his upcoming project #RedOctober and in support of the upcoming project will be dropping new music and videos every week. The first is "Watching Me", a track that goes out of the normal element or formula of FreshCo but serves the same purpose. Now that labels are looking it seems everybody else want to now come around.
Malik B. (of The Roots fame) and producer Mr. Green may have caught you off guard with their last collabo, the eery, violence filled video “Devil,” ish was still dope though. This time around the duo come through with a more straight hip-hop boom-bap feel with single #2, “Definition.”
