I Can’t Complain, I mean I could but what would that accomplish. I was just thinking that today… “keep pushing on.” For reals. I dig the vibe and the positivity of this track. I first started playing the video and was like, ” did I click on the right video?” But then it kicks in with that nice beat and UllNevaNo’s lyrics to compliment it. It’s a Feel good track. And you say UllNevaNo like You’ll Never Know. BIG thanks UllNevaNo for the heads up.
Nothing like a high energy video from J-Live to get your day going. Not much else to say, but play it again. After you get done watching the video, get down with the album, S.P.T.A. BIG thanks to J-Live for the heads up. Keep doing what you’re doing.
I don’t want to say anything that’s going to land me in hot water with female emcees, but DAMN can you spit like that?!? I gotta ask the fellas that too, because Josie Stingray shows she’s a dope emcee. Just play it again and listen carefully. “Give me a beat I’m a show you how my teeth work. Call me a B, and you must mean brilliant.” You all know I’ll be digging up more stuff about her for sure. Josie Stingray, kicks, and the Honor Roll… sounds like a good mix to me. BIG thanks to the Honor Roll for keeping me posted. BIG shout to Torin Simpson and Matt McKee for making a dope video.
The hypnotic beat and the crazy lyrics, I can’t stop watching this video. Open Mike Eagle is having Nightmares, but should be on cloud nine with this video. The video goes from Open Mike tossing and turning in a blue/green hue of light. “I went to bed at midnight, and the clock said 1, 2, 3.” switching to a black & white with a shot of him at a free standing mic. The video’s visuals really add to the great lyrics that Open Mike Eagle spits. Really dope track and video. BIG shout to WHAT310, Willie Green and Nocando,.
Hopes & Dreams is a dope track. I’m really feeling the concept and how the video was shot. It makes me want to catch a cab with hopes of finding a girl who needs a ride. The video fits the classic style flow of ScholarMan. B+C is going to keep an eye on ScholarMan, and will keep you posted. Check out ScholarMan.com for more info.

For most of y’all I don’t have to tell you who Houseshoes is, but for those of you sleeping under a rock he is Hip Hop! To the point, laid back, real, Detroit, and all around good dude are just a few ways I would describe Houseshoes. From killing it DJing to making ill beats this is the guy to know. A while back I got this track called Castles by Houseshoes. Since then I’ve been keeping an eye out for whatever he drops, even podcast. Unlike other podcast, Houseshoes’ reads more like a resume and list of his friends. I’m amazed of all the projects and the people he’s worked with. Be sure to check out The Makings and keep your eyes and ears open for his LP, and look for him at Shoes House(Blue Monkey Lounge) in Hollywood. BIG thanks to Houseshoes for taking the time.
