Video: ‘They Die By Dawn’ (Movie Trailer) ft. Erykah Badu

 

Our boo Erykah Badu is in a new black cowboy flick called They Die By Dawn. The cast is quite drool-worthy, also including Michael K. Williams (“Omar” from The Wire), Rosario Dawson, Giancarlo Esposito, Isaiah Washington (Grey’s Anatomy), and Jesse Williams (Grey’s Anatomy). Written and directed by none other than Jeymes Samuel, this ought to be a real treat and have a killer soundtrack.

New Release: Mark de Clive-Lowe – ‘Renegades’

 

Our friend Mark de Clive-Lowe this week released his ninth studio album, Renegades. Hopefully you heard his bright and shiny track with Nia Andrews called “The Why.” In addition to the lovely miss Nia, the album boasts appearances from the much loved Omar, Sheila E, and Miguel Atwood-Ferguson.

Mark shares about his approach to blending recording styles and genre, “My whole thing with this kind of production is balancing electronics and programming with organic and live musicianship. I love for that line to be blurred almost to the point where you don’t know which is which.”

And now that you’re all topsy-turvy with anticipation, enjoy a full stream of the album below before you buy!
