The End of Time

Dot City – End of Time

A little video collage that I did for DOT CITY. The lyrics and track are pretty powerful as it talks about the ‘End of Days’, so I think I put out some pretty compelling images to evoke that emotion.  This track is by Dot City feat. Jermaine Barnaby and is called ‘End of Time’, Let me know what you think….

Isn’t this better than the original?

Dot City – 187

Dot City – 187

Dot City is the group, 187 is the freestyle track, and Just Feelings is the movement – more on the movement later. But my part in this particular video is the Directing and editing – thanks to Rhoda of for the help with the camera. Using a bit of Premiere Pro and After Effects, I was able to capture the raw & grittiness of this potent freestyle track.

Song Credits:
Vocals: Mr. P & Streets
Group: Dot City

Let me know what you think, peace.

Erick Sermon feat. Marvin Gaye, this song is smooth ass classic hip-hop funk – something to do a lil’ two step to. If you don’t know who either of these two guys are, leave this site now and go to wikipedia/youtube, lames.
Erick Sermon is still doing production work I believe, and the great late Marvin Gaye’s works live on in sampling.

The Most Beautifullest Thing in the World

The most Beautifullest thing in this world

Apart from ‘beautifullest’ not being a real world, Keith Murray provided a lyrical dose with this debut track that focused on a simple boom bap beat, and raw lyrics. Released in the mid 90’s, this song was well received as this was a time when lyricism was promoted in the mainstream. Now, Keith Murray is working on new material, but unfortunately like most that reappear after long hiatuses, he probably won’t fit into today’s climate, but can’t stop from trying. Production by the great Erick Sermon of EPMD fame.

Alternative Hip-Hop gets picked up in the mainstream

Flobots are an Alternative Hip Hop band from Denver, Colorado, formed in 2000. To date, they have released two albums (counting Onomatopoeia) and one EP. Flobots found mainstream success with its major label debut Fight with Tools (2007), featuring the single “Handlebars”, which became a popular hit on Modern Rock radio in April 2008.


Gotta give it up to this alternative hip-hop group for being on a major label (Universal Music Group) and focusing on real lyrics.  Support real hip-hop and not that bullshit on the radio!
