Famous Stranger, “Candyman”, Hallucination (2012) 

So that dude Famous Stranger that I wrote about last week just dropped a new video to go along with his Hallucination mixtape. This is by far one of the creepiest videos that I have seen in a while but I dig it. He took the whole Candyman theme and went nutz! The video was shot, edited, and directed by Kevin Davis who might be just as talented and as twisted as Fame. 

p.s. See if you can spot me in the video….I’m the nun!

My idea is that there is music in the air, music all around us; the world is full of it, and you simply take as much as you require.

Tyga Live at the Howlin Wolf in New Orleans - April 15, 2012

I had the pleasure of seeing Tyga live last week at the Howlin Wolf. Prior to the show, I hadn’t heard much from him so I didn’t know what to expect. I was super excited for the new experience especially since it was the last performance on his “Careless World” National Tour.

Tyga just released his sophomore CD, Careless World: Rise of the Last Kingin February to not-so-bad reviews. My favorite song on the album is “Kings and Queens,” part of which is shown in the video above. I really enjoyed the production of Tyga's show, with the lights and the cool bursts of smoke at the perfect moment. It was kinda sucky that we had to wait 45 min for him to come out, but as soon as he hit the stage, everybody went nuts!!

The opening acts, Lil Twist, and YG were pretty cool. I loved YG’s flow and his stage presence. I was also introduced to a new female rapper, Honey Cocaine, that rolls with Tyga's crew and has been getting a lot of press lately.

Overall, the concert was dope, and for all his international fans check out Tyga's upcoming performance schedule span>here.

                                                                                                                    

If you’re going to be in New Orleans, there’s a bunch of great concerts coming up at the Jazz Fest by day and Fest by Night at the Howlin Wolf that are definitely worth checking out.

I think music in itself is healing. It’s an explosive expression of humanity. It’s something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we’re from, everyone loves music.

"Flex Your Gold" Cities Aviv (2012)

Buku Fest Performance: Saturday March 17, 2012, Bassik Ballroom, 5:00-5:45 

When I saw this dude’s name I didn’t know what to think. I had never heard of him (like most of the Buku artists) and based on that, I figured he was some DJ or electronica dude.  I never would’ve thought in a million years that he was a rapper, from Memphis, whose real name is Gavin Mays.

But none of that really matters. As soon as I pressed play, I drifted away to a land of supreme chill-ness, where the only thing that mattered was having a good time. You can barely understand what he’s saying, I love the vibe of this song (if you can’t already tell). There’s a soulfulness to it amidst all of the static that, mixed with everything else going on in the song, just gives me what I need. I can’t wait to see this dude live, as I’m sure he will not disappoint.

Check out his mixtape: Digital Lows
