Radio Killa

The Dream's last album had some ridiculous songs on also had some kinda forgettable stuff though too, in all fairness.

But check it, just the other week @MrTeriusNash released a new (digi-maxi) single via his site and it is some amazing, futuristic Prince-inspired (I'm sayin) dopeness.

It's a 2-song medley, and it's available for free download.

Mom and Dad, put your kids to sleep...

And check this interesting interview with The Dream from "Honey" magazine. Good read...

Beautiful People

When I read those words and I think about music, names like Marilyn Manson come to mind, or even Sly and the Family Stone or Arrested Development (just on some stream of consciousness, really)..or more recently, I wrote about a dope song from Nina Sky called, fittingly, "Beautiful People."

The kid Chris Brown has certainly taken some heat in past years for his treatment of then lady-in-his-life Rihanna, and like many of you, I've got my own opinion on that whole deal. It's hard to support artists at times when they go wrong in the real world. But, I try to recognize that nobody is perfect, and people can change. I'm not saying Brown has his act together or anything like that, because frankly, I don't really follow him like that, so I don't know. But, my man Supa Qool DJ Quartermaine has brought something to my attention recently that definitely piques my interest and has me wondering what could be...

I can't really say that I'm feeling the Benny Benassi-produced original of this song here, because it doesn't quite hit the mark for what my ears want.

BUT, hold up!! Q breathes a different life into this tune, and makes it into something that house, hip-hop and r&b lovers can vibe to. Yet another case where the b-side wins...or, the remix, or get the drift!

Turn it UP!!
