Video: ERIMAJ – “Social Life” (Live At The Loft)


Our friends at Live At The Loft have done it yet again and topped themselves with a lust-worthy video of nostalgic visuals and all too sexy sounds. Featured are none other than some more pals of ours – ERIMAJ. You might remember these folks from their addictive little tune, “Conflict Of A Man,” that we featured last year.

The video above for ERIMAJ’s live performance of “Social Life” is absolutely just rude – can they tone down the awesome like a little, at least? Man – so good, too good – spine tingling bliss.

Video: Chris Turner – “Find A Way”


You remember our boy Chris Turner. We shared his chilling cover of Sly & The Family Stone’s “If You Want Me To Stay” in October as well as “Conflict Of A Man,” a tune with his group ERIMAJ, in September.

Today, we got a little more. Last week Chris performed his first headlining show in his hometown of Oakland, California. We were lucky enough to be present for the special occasion, which turned out be nothing short of a very inspiring night of friends, family, and community supporting this rising star.

Many thanks to our friend Sef Diggy for the footage and Hip Hop Is Cool Again for bringing it to our attention!

Our pal Jesse Boykins III told us we needed to hear this cat named Chris Turner, so looked him up. Chris is a super talented vocalist from Oakland that also happens to be Bilal’s backup singer. After a little chat with Chris, we stumbled onto his band, ERIMAJ. The core of the band consists of drummer and band leader Jamire Williams, trombonist and composer Corey King, and of course, Chris Turner on the vocals.

“Conflict Of A Man” is the group’s first single with this hazy dreamscape of a video directed by none other than miss Tiombe Lockhart. The sound is jazzy and soulful, with vocals reminiscent of Bilal. All these New School alums are on some serious voltron status. Go ahead, y’all. Sounding great.
