Fine Art Friday: Ronald Wimberly

I had a chance to meet with Ronald Wimberly at an off the wall film shoot, but I was looking at some of his work on his phone and saw an URB magazine cover with Jay-Z on it that I remembered and realized the breadth of his work. He combines Roy Lichtenstein-ish printer dots (comic book style) with Japanese style animation and Hip Hop sensibilities to make dynamic and visually interesting work.

Listen: Guilty Simpson X Apollo Brown - "Truth Be Told"

Apollo Brown has been steadily linking up with underground greats to build his recent discography and the results are always dope! Apollo has now linked with fellow Detroit giant Guilty Simpson for a collaborative album and just dropped the "Truth Be Told" single above via Mello Music Group. Looking forward to more from this combo! With Guilty's gritty rhymes and Apollo's soulful soundtrack, this album looks like a gem in the making. Look for it November 13th, 2012!

Now, if Apollo can link with Rakim to put out a full length, he will have come full circle. Fingers crossed!

Video: Dag Savage - "Cali' Dreamin'" ft. Fashawn, Co$$, Tiombe Lockhart

New music from Dag Savage, a collaborative project from Johaz and Exile, and given that they keep good company with Fashawn, Co$$ and Tiombe Lockhart, it seems worthy of checking out more from. Though Johaz sounds remarkably like fellow left coaster Planet Asia (voice wise), he keeps the lyrics cohesive with the vibe of the song and his guests. Here's hoping for more from Dag and the Dirty Science crew.

Throwback Video: Black Star - "Respiration"

Maybe it's the Fall weather (chilly hurricane weather) in NY right now, but this time of year and living in Brooklyn always makes me think of this song and video. Verses still true to this day. I miss...
