“My Beautiful Disaster” – Imhotep | @JacenSpada

“we will.. by any means necessary, not fail our mission…”
– Sir Jacen Spada III

So last night…well late last night, I fell asleep listening to Imhotep’s 11 track introductory body of work “My Beautiful Disaster”. It was like listening to an energetic hip hop lullaby if that makes any sense. I was able to put my “smart phone” down and just enjoy what (at times) sounded like a futuristic Bayou Classic Battle of the Bands on 16 bars of lyrical crack – in other words well orchestrated sounds that most folks won’t catch up to for another few years – welcome to the Goldeneyed Era. If you are a fan of Kanye’s deep passion for his creativity and work ethic you’ll love Imhotep. And Imohotep if you are reading this… I won’t forget how I “felt” when I listened to “My Beautiful Disaster” – hip hop needs creators. Don’t stop. No validation. Thats how I feel. Y’all enjoy!

“Left Handed” by Kid Boom Box | @Kid_Boom_Box

Here is something new to my ears… “Left Handed” from Kid Boom Box of the Stereo Boyz who’ll be releasing his first solo effort this year. His “Left Hand” will leave you all kinds of mesmerized. Even the soulful intro on the track is like the quiet foot steps leading up to the wrath of his stealth lyricism. Enjoy!

Respect The 80s: “Can’t Go” [Official Music Video] – Bodega Brovas | @BodegaBrovas

Kevin Nottingham (@KevinNottingham) just tweeted this video link earlier and it just seemed all too appropriate to kick my first post of 2015 off with this humorous video by the Bodega Brovas. It’s lyrical excellence meets simple meets hip hop meets the iconic duo Hall and Oates with a serious ode to some male 80s fashion. Hey, we all need great music and a smile on our face – everyday. Thanks Bodega Brovas!

#NYE2014: “The Brooklyn Dütes – “Shades In the Dark (Douchebags In The Club)”

Whether you are trimming your beard, getting a haircut, touching up that curly afro or installing a weave right now…. Allow these eight words to be your first “drink” on the last night of 2014…

“Shades in the dark,
Douchebags in the club.”
*Repeat and keep having fun.

Now that the Brooklyn Dutes have your attention and you are feeling all bubbly, I want to say Happy New Year to all who have supported The Greener Side of Hip Hop this year. Thank you and we are looking forward to rocking with you in 2015!

Disclaimer: This song was posted last year for New Year’s Eve on this blog… It’s that good.
