Video: Blu – “Thelonius King” ft. R.A. The Rugged Man & TriState


Blu is joined by R.A. The Rugged Man and TriState on this hard hitting new track called “Thelonius King.” First of all, anything with “Thelonius” in it is already a winner to us. But really, this track gets us going from the beat, to the flow, to the grit, to the fast moving and intense visuals – we are all about it.

Wanna cop? Look out for the limited edition 7″ out on Record Store Day this April.

Video: Andy Allo – “People Pleaser” (Teaser)


[kml_flashembed movie="" width="550" height="445" allowfullscreen="true" fvars="fs=1" /]

Having played guitar and acted as backup-singer in Prince’s band, Andy Allo is definitely already on the right track. Earlier this year, Prince charged up his efforts to introduce Andy to the world as a solo artist as she sets up to release her sophomore album, Superconductor. You may also already recognize Andy from the track she did with Blu called “Dreamland.”. While her voice in “Dreamland” is smoother and sweeter, Andy’s new solo style serves up a raspy down home soul from the gut.

Above, find a teaser from her upcoming super funky video for “People Pleaser” above. And below, catch Andy doing a live cover of Marvin Gaye’s “Let’s Get It On.” Absolutely adorable she is.

Late April, we saw the release of brooklyknight. by the Kings County producer Sene. The guy has proven to make some pretty dope music and videos.

Today, we’ve got a video for a song that is now back on repeat – “Backboards” featuring the magical Blu. The violins against the colossal drum are completely consuming – love this track. The eerie glowy magenta video adds an interesting mystery to the whole occasion..
