Dwele Visits South Africa (video/single)

Came across a dope video of Dwele’s trip to the mother land and wanted to share it all with you.

For those that aren’t subscribers to Dwele’s youtube channel all the video’s he makes are called A.D.B.P. (another Dwele bootleg production) and within his video’s he has a certain ones called the I.P.C. (i phone chronicle) and this is basically where he records video on his I Phone of where he’s at or doing in a particular place. In this case it’s South Africa. I really enjoyed watching this 14.55 min video cause he shows the people, places, and custom of South Africa from his point of view as well as some live performing of the show he did down there.

Fresh from the Fridge: The Floacist feat Musiq- Forever/ Spoken Soul Vol 1 (single / mixtape)

She’s baaaaald. Oppps! I mean baaaaaack. lol Natalie “The Floacist” Stewart has a new single out feat one of my favorite singer of all time Musiq that will be off her highly anticipated debut album entitled “Floetic Soul.”

Floacist spoke a little bit about the album saying “My approach to the manifestation of Floetic Soul, has simply been to get out of the way and go beyond my comfort zone, making sure to challenge any limitations that I may have placed on myself over time” She actually record 16 songs in 12 days! Girls a beast in the studio! She plans to show off her many talents on the album as a composer, singer, poet, lyricist, and producer. Expect some pretty dope features as well in Musiq Soulchild, Raheem DeVaughn, rapper MC Lyte, singer Lalah Hathaway and producers JR Hutson (Jill Scott, Musiq Soulchild).

I have no idea when her album is set to drop because she doesn’t even know as it’s no where on her personal pages or site. I do know how ever that it’ll probably drop before Marsha’s being that The Floacist isn’t signed with Dr. Dre and wack ass Aftermath that’s known for shelving/ sleeping on all they’re artist. Dude’s damn there worst then Puffy with his label. lol I’ll def keep all yall posted though as soon as I find out more detailage. Till then enjoy the single as well as a little album she put out with spoken word.

Fresh from the Fridge: Jay-Z vs Coldplay- Viva La Hova (mixtape)

What’s up Soulifiedians?! It’s ya boy Black Milk aka Negro Leche and I’m bringing you another heater of a mixtape like the past few except this time I’m bringing one hell of a “Mash Up” album!

For those that are big Jay-z fans it’s been a hot sec since he’s gone up against an alternative band. November 30, 2004 to be exact when him and Linkin Park battled it out on they’re super dope album Collision Course which I still bump to this day before I compete in my karate tournament’s. This particular one is considered a “mixtape”.  It sounds like an album that both Jay Z and Coldplay did in the studio, with J spitting and Coldplay melodies.  All over crazy production from some of the dopest producers in the game like 9th Wonder. This is a must have for any Jay Z fan and it just might open you up to Coldplay and they’re genre of music as well.

1) Intro (produced by Mick Boogie & Terry Urban)
2) Public Speeding (produced by Cookin’ Soul)
3) Know My Place (produced by The Amps)
4) Never Changing (produced by nVMe)
5) Miss Trouble (produced by Judah)
6) Back At My Place (produced by Remot)

11) The Reverse Fix (produced by Mick Boogie & nVMe)
12) Hola Blanco (produced by Garbs Infinite)
13) Take The Hill (produced by nVMe)
14) Lost Part 2 (remixed by Mick Boogie)

Conya Doss Set to Release “Blu Transition”

Website/Facebook/MySpace/Twitter

Conya Doss is set to release another album to her waiting fans on September 28th, 2010.  This album took me by surprise.  I have been a long time Super Fan of her.  She was my first serious venture in to Soul/Neo Soul music.  This will be her fifth album, in a long line of great albums.  This album is to be a more emotional and deeper album based on recent events in her life. The album is named after her newborn son, Blu.  So I can’t wait to hear how she wraps her subtle, yet gripping voice around these songs.

You can pre-order this album at many places, but the best place is from her site.  If you want to really support an independent artist, thats the best way.  To help get youhyped up for the release here are three snippets to help your three week wait.

Jeremih – All About You (album review/ video/ online listening party by DJ Smoke1)

Mr. Birthday Sex is back with his second album “All About You”.  Soulified now has an official DJ, by the name of DJ Smoke1 .  He will bless your ears with a dope mix of the full album for your listening pleasure, in our very first online listening party before the album drops September 28th, 2010.

Got a chance to listen to the album over the weekend and I can safely say that this one will be added to my ” freak um” list. lol This is a straight baby makin album right here, ya’ll.  In my case and most others out there a “practice making babies” album.  hahaha This was somewhat expected with his hit single “Birthday Sex” on his last album, but it’s a refreshing piece of work. None the less,  every track has a different feel and taste. You can tell Jeremih has def grown and matured as an artist on this one. You get the grown and sexy tracks and even a few good love ballads like Holding On and Love Don’t Change. Another breath of fresh of air on the album is the single “Broken Down”, where Jeremih hits us with a blues style track. It’s about a past bad situation, he was in and he showcase’s his true untouched vocals.

The lead single “I Like” was def a good choice because it’s one of my favorite tracks.  Luda murders it with his bars at the end.  The video is simple and has been done before (on a rented yacht with the homie and video vixen’s drinking bub) but it works for the song.  The eye candy picked totally makes me ignore the unoriginality. The back arch shot during Luda’s part in the jacuzzi OMG! LOL Can’t help but hate a little and wish I was there with the 2 to even the odds. lol Ok ok back to the album. Make sure yall cop it when it drops.  It’s worth the $9.99

Donell Jones- Lyrics (album review/ sneak peek)

“Donell Jones has a new album?!” Those are the words that came to most of your minds when you saw this post right? Well it was for mine when I found out he had an album and I gotta say…It’s about damn time Donell! Only took you 4 years if you don’t count “The Lost Files” album in 2009 which was pretty much lost in music world. lol

So what’s Donell bringing on this album? “This album right here is, to me, the best so far,” says Jones. “I know a lot of artists say that, but I really feel that way. This is one you can play from beginning to end. I like to give a message in the music and I think that with this particular album, I really went into depth about certain situations we find ourselves in. I named it lyrics because from the very start of my career, that’s what I’ve tried to build on, writing strong lyrics and making sure that whatever I put out there, people can understand.” That’s some pretty big and confident talk considering his 1999 platinum selling album “Where I Wanna Be” is my all time favorite and in my mind a flawless album from start to finish. Hell my wedding song is on that album and I’m not even married yet. lol

Listening to the first two tracks right off the bat I can say he’s not off to a good start “rap singing” on the #1 The World Is Yours with way to much talking in the beginning of both tracks totally killing the it for me like a mixtape dj basically explaining how he’s back and the R&B needs him.  He even has his mama talking on #2 Your Place. Ewww. His first and probably only single off the album #3 Love Like This is a chill track with a decent video till Donell takes his hat and glasses off. lol Whoa! Donell got dome!!!! And I’ve seen prettier love interest in Walmart.

“Love Like This”

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Zk1R8XrqaM&p=13DA3DEFA2450E49&playnext=1&index=32

The talking continues on track 4, 8, 9, 10, 11, and 13! Just sing Donell! Your killing the songs. We don’t need introductions! Speaking of #10 You Can Burn Donell introduces one of his first artist signed to his “record label” Candy Man by the name of Breeze who’s a female singer that can’t sing worth a damn. *shakes head* The album as a whole is a big disappointment to me because I was really hoping Donell would back his words and bless us with an up to date “Where I Wanna Be” but it’s far from that. The production is boo boo especially the uptempo clubby ones. The content isn’t something I don’t wanna hear like strip clubs, tapping married women and sneaking out the Back Door, and ruining a girl life he dated that didnt want to be with him via Blackmailing her for money who’s getting married. Unnecessary auto tune (#5). There are no high notes at all! It’s pretty much soft spoken singing through out. You know an album is bad when Young Joc the best thing about it. Real spit.

John Legend and The Roots- Wake Up! (album review/preview)

When I first heard these 2 music titans were getting together and doing an album together I couldn’t believe it. Well myself and thousands of others are believers now cause it’s finally out and the album is a beast! If you thought the Jay-Z/ Linkin Park Collision Course album was nuts this album is a must by.

Soulful singer John Legend & the baddest band in all the land The Roots present Wake Up!, and if you think that this dream team of a combination looks good I can assure you it sounds even better! This album is packed with 12  songs pulled from the soulful music of the 60’s and 70’s all with a theme of awareness, engagement and consciousness all blessed by John’s voice and the Roots instrumentation/ lyrics. The album is highlighted with familiar tracks like “Little Ghetto Boy” by Donny Hathaway mixed with more obscure selections like Baby Huey and the Babysitters’ “Hard Times” which is my cut. Wake Up! also includes one original composition, John Legend’s “Shine,” which is featured in the documentary Waiting For Superman.

From the very start of the album this killer combo comes out of the gate’s full blast with a loud, soulful, live, hard hitting sound that you can’t help but get excited and bob your head too with “Hard Times.”  This track is probably one of my favorite because it’s the perfect combo of John’s high notes, The Roots instrumentation and Black Thought lyrics. I had to bless yall with a live in studio performance of it which gives you one hell of an idea as to how they all recorded this album which makes sense as to why it’s so live! I swear if you closed your eyes with the volume all the way up you’d swear John and the Roots were playing live right in front of you. It’s that live yall.

Discover Candice Anitra’s “Bark Than Bite”

Website/MySpace/Facebook

I’ve been enlightened to the voice of Candice Anitra.  An artist from Brooklyn, New York that understands the meaning of being creative.  She has recently released her debut album “Bark Than Bite“.  This album is, plan and simple a journey of her expressions of creativity.  From the first song “Bad Taste”, to one of my favorites “Take Me”, which is the epitome of the  smokey and heavy with sultry sexiness vibe I love.  The simple chords, give her voice all the latitude it needs to envelop you in it’s wisps of mysterious soulness.  Yes, it’s like that.  Then moving on to “Too Much Woman” gives us something similar, with a touch of a astral vibe.  This is the album, that makes me want to drive through some random rainy city at 2:00am, and just reflect upon my day and life.   Then there are more upbeat and positive songs that round out the album to earn it a place in my daily rotation.

Candice Anitra has a refreshing, crisp quality that brings a new perspective to the genre.  This perspective is much needed, at this time that is being called the Golden Time of Soul.  With many artists releasing their long awaited projects this fall, and new artists trying to emulate those artists, that’s where Candice Anitra stands out.  Check out her video below, which is of the song “Objectify”.  Is a wonderful plea from one lover to the next.  Never had this proposition put in such a way. Enjoy.

Fresh from the Fridge: Willow Smith- Whip My Hair (single/video interview)

I remember way back when Will and Jada got together and started making babies and saying to myself…”those are going to be some good looking super talented kids.” Look at them now. Jaydan’s (12 years old) starred in 3 big blockbuster movies (The Pursuit of Happyness, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and The Karate Kid. Now his little sister Willow (9 years old) is next up to bat who actually starred in some films herself (I Am LegendKit Kittredge: An American Girl and Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa) but the films aren’t oddly enough isn’t what’s getting young Willow all the buzz these days…it’s her singing career!

When I first heard she had a song out I honestly didn’t take it serious at all. I mean come on! She’s 9 for God sake and signing. So I couldn’t even picture something like Lil Bow Wow did when he first came on to the scene with his ghost writers. So I gave her the benefit of the doubt and took a listen to her new single “Whip My Hair” and I was very shocked. This shit bangs! The track has a dope beat, very catchy hook as simple as it is, and the little girl can sing! What really impressed me even more is the interview she did with Ryan Seacrest down below. She looks just like Jada! Talks and carries herself like Jada! It’s a trip. She’s like a mini me lol And very mature, down to earth, mature, and wholesome. Oh and did I mention Jay- Z singed her to his new label Roc Nation?! Shot out to Azaleah aka Puertozillian! lol

Fresh from the Fridge: Diggy Simmons- Airborne (mixtape/ video)

Yes you read and saw it right! Rev Runs little son Diggy is now rapping and has his own mixtape out and brace yourself for this one… IT IS FIYAH!!!!

When I first heard little Diggy (now 15 years of age by the way) was rapping and had a mixtape out the first thing that came to mind is it’s probably wack as all hell like his brother Jojo’s material with his group Team Black out and more then likley is was kiddy crap that was ghost written by a hired rapper from his pops or Uncle Russel. I’m not one to not have a closed mind and not give something a try so I did and boy let me tell you all the above that came to mind went right out the window after listening to the first track where he does spoken word and I was immediately hooked to hear what else he would come with behind that and on every track he spits versatile bars. Diggy is def for real yall! What really confirmed the realness is this interview he did with Good Fellas Radio. Visually he’s def grown from last seeing him on “Runs House” and on top of that his vocabulary and what he had to say in this interview pretty much confirmed that he more then likely doesn’t have a ghost writer and Atlantic wouldn’t have signed him.

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=06RaqlknoMQ

Here’s one of the 2 freestyles Dig did to Nas Made You Look that caught the attention of labels where he eventually choose Atlantic…

httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcM6p7pT4-o

What makes this a great mixtape for me is the fact that it doesn’t sound like a mixtape at all. Great production my fairly unknown producers. No Dj’s fuckin up the tracks. It has a great theme through out the whole album. Diggy’s versatility and content is nice. Nice features. And the tracks are just all around nice and all this is coming from a 15 year old! For all that I can’t help but give this album the score I did below. #2 is my shit! Even the Chris Brown feature where Chris sings and spits is dope. Download it and see what I’m talking about and let me know what you think here and be on the look out for Dig in the very near future. Shout out to my ninja James P. Morgan!

Bruno Mars: Doo-Wops and Hooligans (album preview/video)

The man behind 2 of the dopest singles of the year “Billionaire and Nothing On You” is finally ready to bless the world with his own singles in the highly anticipated album Doo-Wops and Hooligans coming out on my sisters birthday October 5th, 2010.

When speaking to MTV news on the story behind the album title Bruno explains… “I’m a big fan of doo-wop music. … That’s what you call your girl, your “doo-wop.” … On this album, I have records that women are going to relate to and men are going to relate to. So doo-wops are for the girls, and hooligans are for the guys.” So the big question is will Bruno’s album songs be equal to if not better then the 2 songs he produced and murdered the hooks on with B.o.B and Travie McCoys single? Cause in my mind and a ton of others he is those songs. And listening to both B.o.B and Travie McCoy’s albums those were the only 2 good songs on them. They prolly shoulda hired Bruno for the rest of they’re albums lol Looking over the track list I’m all ready not excited that he’s only going to have 10 tracks. I mean anything below 12 shouldn’t be allowed especially with all the songs artist record prior to go through and pick the best.  Listening to his first single “Just the Way You Are” I think Bruno has some kinda promise because its a dope single that would pull any female lyrically and vocally on demand. The video is ever doper.

Simple video with a super dope concept. Big ups to who ever came up with the idea to have the tape animated with the song lyrics. Damn it’s been a hot sec since I seen a yellow walkman. I know I’m not the only one who that one by Sony lol

Cilla K’s Voice is “Easy To Love” Video Release

MySpace/Twitter/Facebook

Ok, I’m going to have to get some therapy.  Here is Cilla K, a great voice and vibe that I missed, that should have been in my rotation since April, when her debut album “Fine Line” was released.  She recently also released a video “Easy To Love”.  The vibe that  you get from “Easy to Love” is just a sampling of the variety and range that you will experience on the album.  One quality that I enjoy the most, is her ability for her voice to meld with whatever genre she is crafting.  Take a listen.  I hope to have a album review shortly.

Trey Songz- Passion, Pleasure, Pain (album review/ video)

Happy Monday Soulified! How was everyone’s weekend? Got the new Trey Songz album last Friday and have been bumping it all weekend.

I gotta admit the album is a lot better then I thought it was going to be. Trey has definitely matured as an artist because the whole album is very well rounded. And for my dude’s that are looking for a good “beating/ panty droppin” album this is the one! lol I know I’ll def be putting this album on next time I knock some boots. lol Big up’s to Trey for this one. I appreciate it family. hahaha The track list is a little different from the one I posted a few weeks ago in the album sneak peek where all of you can still download and listen to the 6 tracks off the album highlighted below by clicking. The album’s very similar to Dwele’s W.ants W.orld W.omen album in the sense that he broke the album into 3 separate part with the parts relating to the album title’s 3 words. Though Trey’s words aren’t in the right order in his track list as they are in the album title I’m not mad at him for trying and doing it the way he did because it makes the album that much more interesting. Make sure to buy the album tomorrow (Sep 14th) when it drops.

The video for the new single off the album “Can’t Be Friends” and I’m feeling this video big time. It’s a simple concept but it gets the point and lyrics across. More artist should focus on feeling and simplicity when doing video’s because all the crazy graphics and special effects and shit aren’t needed. The song is dope as well cause I feel every word he’s singing on a personal level as I’m sure a lot of you are as well. This cut defiantly leads me to believe that his album will truly be the most personal to date.
