Gilbere rarely rushes his creativity or vision for his projects.

Our favorite bad little mamma jamma Jasmine Solano rolls back onto the scene with the video "Cruisin'," directed by The ICU.
JMSN's remix to "Somewhere" is reminiscent of a late night/early morning solo car ride, where the sun is creeping up to start anew, as you drift closer to the needed sleep you've been avoided for hours.
From the glamorous strip of Sin City to the most obscure corner of Whereverville, AK, a rose will always be revered as a rose.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/02/download-gilbere-forte-eyes-of-veritas"> Let's see here. In 1987, Reaganomics were a way of life, Whitney Houston was a Goody Two-Shoes and most avid sports fans took the phrase "Lakers vs. Celtics" for granted. It is also the year our chosen one of the second, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/gilbere-forte">Gilbere Forte'</a>, was sent into this earth where he would later set his Eyes of Veritas on the music world.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/tss-presents-fifteen-minutes-with-gilbere-forte"> The saying goes that a journey of a million miles begins with one step. In the case of Gilbere Forte’ it all began with a dream deferred. The then newcomer's 87 Dreams grabbed the attention of many and set the bar for Gil's next move. Now with “Born In '87,” the Philly transplant’s visions emphatically explode on the mic, bringing him one step closer to that dream reaching fruition. The track serves as a pretty vicious warning shot to listeners & competitors alike, as Gilbere' further cements his foothold among those on the cusp of Hip-Hop's next wave, taking a mere few minutes to address the questions of his origin, publicizes the industry chatter and the co-signs surrounding his name. Going for a sustained burn rather than a quick burst, "Born..." serves as the first leak for Forte’s upcoming Eyes of Veritas mixtape, which will feature all original material, and guest appearances and production from a wide array of noteworthy friends. The tape will be hosted by brotherly love brethren Don Cannon and co-sponsored by TSS and <a href="http://www.halloffameltd.com/">Hall Of Fame</a>.

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=149401"> G.O.O.D. Friday has been an epic occurrence in Hip-Hop lore. For the last few weeks, we've been exposed to classic records that have set the internet on fire every weekend. All but one of the tracks have come with a slew of guest appearances from artists that understand the importance of the music and have contributed some of the best verses of their careers. Though the G.O.O.D. Friday experience has been nothing short of great, there are still a few artists that haven't appeared yet that we'd love to see tackle one of Yeezy's tracks. There are still a few weeks left, so maybe Kanye will take our list into consideration when picking artists to collaborate with before G.O.O.D. Friday ends. <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/07/video-malice-vlog-6"> 1.
