Bilal – “Free”

By | 16 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/04/shafiq-husayn-feat-bilal-cheeba-video"> Chocolate or vanilla. Beatles or Stones. Pac or Biggie. Of all the contentious match-ups, perhaps the greatest in my circle is D'Angelo or Bilal. Not "who is better?" but rather "who would you put on your album?" And my answer is classically whomever is at the forefront of my mind with new music. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/bilal">Bilal</a> has been making a good go of it lately, reminding us that cliches such as "patience is a virtue" and "good things come to those who wait" exist for moments and music like this.

<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=332357646&s=143441"> Simply calling this a "video" may do it a disservice. A "hallucenogic cinematic short centered around the sounds of music" might be the better description. The clip captures the layered feel that composes the majority of <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/shafiq-en-a-free-ka">Shafiq En A Free Ka</a>'s songs.
