New music from KDot off his Good Kid in a m.a.a.d city lp. I don’t look forward to many albums. This one I’m checking for.
The Bodega Brovas (Headkrack / Travii / Keynote) get it rolling again with their latest single from their upcoming project “Super Future Retro Lets Go”. Featuring production from @DreFle and vocals from Keva Soullily, this song is musically the equivalent of the Lamda’s from “Revenge of the Nerds” kicking ass at the Adams College carnival and talent show. Defeating doubters, being true to yourself reaching the next level. “Getting It”. Cop it on itunes.
One of my fave mc’s drops a visual off her upcoming “Gotham Down” lp. If you never seen Jean Greasy live, you owe it to yourself to see a master at work. (UPDATE: Now I realize that there are mad hidden messages in this video and a link to another video hidden in it. )
Following the success of his album “Hotdoggin”, Playdough follows up with “Writer Dye: Deux or Die” as the next in line for the Writer Dye series. Watch the new video for the first single “King of Queens”and see Playdough’s take on Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody”. The new album will be available as a free download on 10/22.
Writer Dye is a project that has Playdough reimagining lyrics from iconic songs of multiple genres and molding them into entirely different songs. Playdough reinterprets songs from Bob Dylan, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, Johnny Cash, Queen, Modest Mouse, Digable Planets, The Beatles, Bon Iver, The Strokes and other classics. Writer Dye features top shelf appearances from OhNo, Von Pea (Tanya Morgan), Copywrite, Theory Hazit and Adeem. Expect a strong emphasis on song writing as Playdough continues to challenge his own wordplay and delivery. It’s an artisitc approach to songs you probably know, but what other emcee could flip this concept like Playdough does?
Writer Dye will be available for FREE download on 10/22 at www.iamplaydough.com. For a short time limited edition pre-order packages with an exclusive Writer Dye shirt and CD are available here.
