“Congratulations” – The Visuals by @PennBannekar

He might pop some champagne for ya’, give you a sarcastic toast, “but he ain’t buyin’ what you selling”….Here’s the official video for Pennjamin Bannekar’s track “Congratulations” from his “Paper Plane Pilots” EP.  He already knows this is my favorite track thus, I’m loving the simplistic vibe in this video as the director sticks to the theme of the track and gives you every reason to sit back and really appreciate Pennjamin Bannekar as an artist. Enjoy!

“No Floors (Pla†inum)” – by @FarmaWes

image

Here is a new video from Richmond, VA artist Farma Wes entitled “No Floors” which is a visual/lyrical presentation of this artist’s struggles and resulting triumphs in life. This is a hookless, no chorus track so I loved the fact that the focus is on Farma Wes’s lyricism and the visual creativity. Also, I can dig the “No Floors” concept – there would be no rising, no falling, and no lessons in life if we allowed “floors” to keep us stagnant. Y’all enjoy!

Circa 2009: Kanye West – “Touch The Sky” ft. Lupe Fiasco

image

That Evil Knievel documentary that aired a few weeks ago on CNN inspired me (and taught me about the reality of deep seated pride, fake personas, and fear) to revisit this video again. At the end of the day I think both Evil (R.I.P.) and Kanye are “mental” daredevils in their own right… Be glad they showed up to “our fake sh*t”. Still these two brighten/brightened up the universe. Enjoy!

“The Dock Ellis (EP)” by Gone Wallace | @GoneWallace

image

“I’ll never tell you to get down,
It’s all about coming up.”
– Gone Wallace, “Soul Rebel”

In December Gone Wallace released his latest project, “The Dock Ellis (EP)” which he says is inspired by a gift that he received from his mom. If Dock is the “gift” that is featured on the EP’s cover art work then he makes for an uncanny muse! As a sometime writer of poetry I want this – a similar muse inspired experience.
Now, moving on to the “The Dock Ellis (EP)”… Gone Wallace gives fans another ill experience on this 7 track project. The EP opens with the creative “II. Fandago: The Signature Move” where Gone Wallace
expertly displays his bravado in this cinematic themed track, complete with an acceptance speech at the end and a clever hook (I’m the man to WATCH/so check my timing) to boot. And of course in Oscar winning fashion he pursues and gets the girl. Two other stand out tracks on the project are the reggae themed tribute track “Soul Rebel (Senzu Beans) and the follow up to his fan favorite “Lisa Bonet” entitled “LISA2”. The track I really liked because it is sensually appealing on some Einstein level shit and he totally redefines the term geek is “4 Tha Geeks”. I don’t know how Gone Wallace does it, but on this track his lyrics takes the listener on a ride from the simple sexy sapiosexual to the sapiosexual packin’ some intellectual sexual gangsta heat. You really gotta listen for the “plot twist” on this track and you’ll never underestimate a geek again. Overall, this is another EP well done by Mr. Gone Wallace. Hey, “it’s all about coming up”. He came up and he conquered. Now, go ahead and enjoy the ride!
