Robin Thicke raps now?! Wtf?

Yes you heard it right yall! Mr. Panty Droppin Super Soulful Robin Thicke rapping! You got to hear it to believe it lol. It’s honestly not even rapping to me because he’s on that Juvenille type crap where he say’s “In the Phantom” after every damn sentence with no actual rhyming what so ever. “No hoe’s in the Phantom, So Ho in the Phantom.” lmao! I can’t even be mad at him for trying something new but rapping shouldn’t have been it and The Game needs the s$%t slapped out of him for even letting Robin have the 3rd verse to rap on at 2:22 on the track if you want to speed past The Game’s mediocre lyrics.

This track actually sounds decent as far as the beat which I hear is not even by Dr. Dre but by some cat named DJ Toomp instead. And the singing/ hook isn’t bad by Robin Thicke either. What kills me is that the whole song is about a luxury car that all ready has a million and one song’s written about it prior by a bunch of rapper’s that can’t even afford it. This is one reason on top of many others why I don’t listen to majority of the rap crap being put out right now.

Fresh from the Fridge: Dwele- I Wish



More Dwele heat for your ears and your feet! Today I’m hittin yall with another single off his new album coming out on the 29th of this month entitled “I Wish.”

“I Wish” is a smooth up beat track you can bob your head to and just vibe too. On this one Dwele is keeping it real yet simple with the wishes that he has whether it be personal or political.  One wish in particular that stood out and actually had me laughing little was… “I wish that the Golden Child had a sequel.” hahahahah Couldn’t agree with him more on that one! I loved that movie! Classic Eddie Murphy right there!!!!!!

Fresh from the Fridge- The Roots featuring John Legend- Doin It Again

The baddest band in all the land are back with they’re forthcoming album “How I Got Over” set for release this month on the 22nd. And who better to hire for some smooth soulful vocal’s then the talent of John Legend. Today I’m blessing your ears with one of two feature’s John Legend is featured on entitled “Doin It Again.” If the title and lyrics on the track sound familiar it’s because they’re sampled from John’s “Again” track of his sophomore album “Once Again.”

Before you play this track be warned that it is straight FIYAH!!!!!! I swear it made my eye’s water. The beat is heat, Black Thought’s lyrics are on point as usual and I love how they sampled a live version of “Again” as opposed to the studio version because it flows perfect with the Roots live sound.

Here’s a great live video of spotlight sample I’m talking about…

Fresh From the Fridge-Cee Lo Green- Stray Bullet’s Mixtape

In anticipation of his forthcoming album “The Lady Killer” Cee Lo Green satisfies our hunger by hitting us with this appetizer in the form of a mixtape entitled “Stray Bullets.” Listening to this album Cee Lo Green def show’s us why he cant be put in a genre box because he hits us with ever genre of music with his own crazy twist. I heard funk,  jazz, new soul, vintage soul, rock, hip hop, even alien! lol

Track #2 “You Don’t Shock Me Anymore” is my favorite track off this album. Instant vintage! That’s all I gotta say. This track has a very retro Motown feel too it. I can picture Cee Lo singing this one on the Ed Sullivan Show all suited up. It’s amazing to me how he can birth such a classic sound in the era that we live in today. Big up’s to Cee Lo for this one. If you want to listen outside the box and enjoy something new with a vintage feel that’s very out there this is the album for you.

02. You Don’t Shock Me Anymore (Produced by The Grey Area)

Fresh from the Fridge: Cee-Lo Green’s “Georgia” and “I Want You” singles

Yes yes yall! More freshness from the fridge from yours truly and this time I’m bringing you 2 exclusive’s from Cee-Lo Green off his new album being released later this year entitled “Lady Killer.” This is a big deal for me being a huge Gnarls Barkley fan and it being 5 years since he last put out a solo album.

According to sources, Cee-Lo will continue to blend and mix the genres of Hip-Hop and Soul on the forthcoming release and it’s very evident with his first single “Georgia” which is pretty much an ode to the place he loves and grew up in a story book detail. After listening to this track Ray Charles would definitely be proud as it is very reminiscent of his version aside from the obvious title but with an up to date, soulful, Gnarls swag to it. And excuse my language but Cee-Lo sings the shit outta this track yall!

The second single “I Want You” is super exclusive and by far my favorite out of the two. I swear I’ve had this track on repeat playing in my Windows Media Player all weekend! So soulful, smooth, and just an all around feel good track. Whoever the woman is that he’s singing about (hopefully his wife lol) in this track has to be one hell of a catch with the meaningful lyrics he wrote up on this one.

Enjoy the freshness and be on the lookout for a few mixtapes I’ll be dropping in the near future.

Thee official track list! Featuring a full album of 18 tracks for our listening pleasure along with some really nice feature’s which Dwele isn’t to known for via his past album’s.

So far I’ve heard 3 of the 18 track’s. The first being  “Whats Not to Love” where you can listen in my prior post here. Track #2 “I Wish” that I’ll be showcasing fresh out the fridge later this week for you guy’s. And last but certainly not least track #8 “How I deal feat Slum Village which is by far my favorite track out of the 3 and probably out of the 18. Dwele actually made this single about 2 years ago during the Obama campaign which was his inspiration for the track. He made a super dope music video of the track because as he say’s “I was bored at home, shot a video, me and my tripod.” If this is the end result of his boredom then I hope he’s bored a whole lot more because I lost count on how many time’s I’ve watched this video due to how hot the track is as well as the all around dope simplicity of the video where he simply in his room singing to the camera on the edge of his bed with 2 of his clones playing the beat with an MPC and a keyboard. This video is nuts! You be the judge…

I guess he was feeling the track so much he decided to revamp it a little with the Slum Village feature where you can hear a taste of it in his “W.orld. Commercial” which I also posted in the link above. Let me know what track your looking forward to hearing and why from the list. And make sure to check the site on the daily for soul exclusive’s from myself and the rest of the Soulified crew.

Dwele W.ants.W.orld.W.omen.

After a long 2 year wait and some main stream success with his Mc Donalds Mc Café commercial “bah da bah bah bahhhhhh” as well as a huge feature on Kanye West’s “Flashing Lights”. Dwele is now officially set to drop his 4th studio album entitled W.ants. W.orld. W.omen. (W.W.W.).  The album will be set for release this month on June 29th, following his last masterpiece of an album Sketches of a Man.  Which included the single “I’m Cheatin,” and my favorite single “Vain” which I’m bumping write now as you read on.

To further explain the title of his album Dwele show’s off one of his many other talents with these 3 commercial’s representing the 3 W’s that he directed/ produced. I lost count on how many times I’ve watched these commercials because they are straight genius by the way he advertises each “W” word, while blessing our ear’s with a taste of a single off the album towards the end of the commercial. The W.orld commercial is by far my favorite showcasing the hot single “How I Deal” featuring T3 from Slum Village.

Dwele explains that the “W.W.W. is separated into three sections to represent different aspects of himself as an artist.” I can’t wait for this album to drop because Dwele has yet to let me down. From the singles I’ve heard so far the album will have a little bit of everything on it from soul, jazz, hip hop, to R&B. Expect features from Slum Village, DJ Quik, David Banner, Raheem Devaughn, and Monica Blair.

The first single off the album is entitled “Whats Not To Love.” You can listen to the track for your listening pleasure below.

Who is Black Milk?

What’s up my Soulified people’s? It’s ya boy Black Milk fresh to the site and here to bring nothing but the hottest exclusive’s on the soulful tip whether it be new, gossip, fashion, food, album review’s, brand new music, artist interview, my thoughts, etc

A little bit about me…

I’m half black/ half white which is where the name “Black Milk” was birthed from and I’m very proud to be reppin the best of both world’s like our President Barack. Even have a clothing line targeted towards my mixed folks called Mixedwel/ Halfrica I was born and bred in a small desert town in the middle of no where called Blythe, Ca where I was raised on my Grandparent’s alfalfa (hay) farm where I was getting up at 4 am in the morning at the age of 8 to work driving the tractor. When I was wasn’t working on the farm I was in my father’s karate studio training and teaching as I’m a 2nd degree black belt presently. As soon as I was old enough to move out of my small home town I did just that for all the opportunities the LA/ OC area has to offer where I currently reside.

Growing up with a white father and a black mother I was exposed to all sort of soulful music that I still enjoy to this day like Earth, Wind, and Fire, The Chilite’s, Michael McDonald, Al Green, and Stevie Wonder just to name a few. All that dope music in my life inspired me to get into the radio industry where I was a radio personality for a while till I just flat out couldn’t stand the politics and mainstream music that was being played on the daily. These days I listen to one of my all time favorite singers Dwele where it is my personal mission educate those that are sleeping on him that he isn’t just the “guy on the Mc Donald’s commercial” or the “guy singing on Kanye West’s Flashing Light’s” track lol Anthony Hamilton, Floetry, Musiq Soulchild, Jill Scott, and Diondre Jermaine are a few other soul artist I enjoy. Aside from the soul I love real hip hop like Common, Mos Def, Slum Village, and pretty much anything else with substance and meaning that’s not on the radio along with a dance to go with it. lol

Hopefully all thee above give’s you some insight on who I am and what I plan to bring to the table. If you want to know more about me feel free to ask as I’m an open book.
