Hi-Tek puts on for home.
Watch this clip of Kanye in 2004 if you hate Kanye in 2014.
Revolutions Per Minute has become a video album in itself with the way Kweli and Hi-Tit-Ek have kept it streaming on the world wide web. Viral edutainment in the pictorial and lyrical department is how you properly present an album, kids. Take those lumps of coal and toss them in the furnace of your train of thought. Let it bump; they love it in the red. RPM is mos def available on iTunes right now.
Let's face it: the average American's attention span for any hard news story pales in comparison to the steady stream of rapid fire stories about celebrity breakups, political he said-she saids or tweeted updates on where LeBron James last farted. So in some respects it's impressive that the Gulf oil spill has captured the hearts and minds of Americans everywhere. No doubt some of this has to do with the chance to hurl some righteous (and deserved) indignation at BP and the government for their bungling of the spill and near criminal overlook of safety regulations in the rig's construction. Yet still, the spill it starting to fade from our collective consciousness at least if our behavior on Twitter, Google, YouTube etc. is to be believed. In all honesty, I can't blame us...the situation is seemingly helpless, there is no good news, and the feeling is settling in that's it's going to be a long, hard road back to recovery, if we ever make it. In this context comes the aptly-timed video for Reflection Eternal's "Ballad of the Black Gold.
The saying goes that time heals all things. However, time away has been the death knell to numerous artists and groups who’ve returned only to find their one-time fans have moved on. Or even worse, they find that they aren’t able to meet the lofty expectations set by their past performances. Closing in on almost 10 years since the release of their heralded debut album Train Of Thought, Reflection Eternal faces that challenge as they seek to satiate the fans who’ve eagerly awaited their comeback.
A decade is a long time when considering basically anything imaginable but for most Hip-Hop heads, it was time well spent absorbing the lone album that was bestowed on them by the classic MC/producer tandem of Reflection Eternal.
Finally, a video starring Lady Teef, Hi-Tek in a preppy sweater, and what appears to be Talib Kweli after he walked through a dressing room shared by Mayer Hawthorne and David Ruffin. Clean and catchy. Slick and simple. I can dig it. Revolutions Per Minute in stores May 18th but you can pre-order via this link.
Keeping the sonic rpms spinning right on axis, another track from Revolutions Per Minute has broken free from Reflection External's hold.
Reflection Eternal back again with another video, this time featuring Bun B and for the track "Strangers.
I still think the most noteworthy point about this track is that Talib finally utilized the cherrypicking layup Jay threw him years ago.
Rae made us wait nearly a decade but we, the fans were the beneficiaries.
20X will be the Year of the Blacksmith.
