Raz Simone – Cheap Money (Video)

If you’re ever having doubts about anything in life, listening to a Raz Simone track is one of the better ways to reconcile with it all. It’s rare for any artist to so easily combine the evils in life with a deep sense of introspection and underlying themes of positivity, no matter the circumstances. Time is everything & money means nothing. Cognitive Dissonance: Part 2, coming soon.

Rey Resurreccion – Duck Down (Video)

A couple of the west coast’s best kept secrets and most consistent artists, Rey Res & Goldenchyld (of The Bangerz), are back in full effect today with the new video for “Duck Down”. Res is promoting his upcoming release with Ineffable Music Group titled Heart of The City. Be on the lookout for that and if you’re not familiar yet, do your research.

Weekend Classics #3 – Zapp

Ooowwweeeeeee! Zapp, baby! One of main influences and inspiring artists for the whole West Coast Hi-Hop scene, especially G-Funk. This soul-funk band was formed in the late 70s, and remains to be one of the funkiest bands to play on your stereo. The band consisted of four brothers:  Larry, Roger, Lester and Terry Troutman, with Greg Jackson on keyboards and background vocals.

Shortly after meeting George Clinton, the band was able to strike a record deal with Warner Brothers, and released their first album in the summer of 1980. Immediately following its release they began opening up for acts such as Prince, The Commodores, and Kool and the Gang. Just five years later,1985, the group had scored five gold records, and had become a top concert draw all around the world.

Sit back, vibe-out, and enjoy the funkedelic-groove by ZAPP….That TALK BOX BABY!!!
