0153 Chilly Gonzales – Kenaston @ 2:19

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

I think I came back to this after I saw he was guesting on the new Daft Punk album. Daft could work with anyone they want, and they chose Chilly for a reason.

And that reason is in this clip, listen up, I gave you a lead in, the best part starts at :10.

Kenaston 2:09 – 2:29

0133 Robert Glasper Experiment – Consequence of Jealousy @ 0:30

“Eeaaaassssiier for you”

It makes me happy that music like this still gets made. If there’s anyone to channel the great black soul and r&b music that came out the late 60’s and early 70’s, it’s Robert Glasper. Here, he brings on Meshell Ndegeocello for a late night lounge, piano soul romp through jazz history and back again. This is the re-re-birth of cool.

Consequence of Jealousy 0:19 – 0:48

0130 Drake – Over My Dead Body @ 2:15

best part of over my dead body

“over my dead body”

The first time I heard this it was on some terrible speakers, and I didn’t quite hear it right. My friend was also making fun of Drake’s sing songy rap style. But damn, hearing it on headphones, yes, this is why I have this blog. To post these special moments of musical bliss. Those lil drums in the background, the way she says ‘baby’, shit man.

Shout out to Drake for the Take Care billboard too, so slick.
