Vigalantee- Your Voice

I love this! This is a very good rap song by Vigalantee.  The lyrics are not only inspirational but very powerful as well.  I hope you enjoy it.

Watoto from The Nile- Unify and Live

This is another great video from Watoto from The Nile. These young ladies never disappoint me with their songs. This is a very inspiring song. Considering the current condition of our people,this song is very timely. Enjoy this beautiful song.

Oshun-Stuck

This is my new favorite music duo. Femme fatale tandem OSHUN lift their heads above the (not just) knee deep pool of modern r&b to introduce a sound that draws less on the melancholy, often gothic tones we associate with future soul, feeling much closer to dawning of a new Daisy Age. Comprising NYU students Niambi Sala and Thandiwe, the duo has taken to heart the soulful, sampladelic and socially aware artistry of OKP champions like Erykah Badu, the mighty Roots crew and Lauryn Hiland synthesized them into a new and true sound that blends the strongest of all of their respective suits in lyricism, composition and melodics.

Nowhere is this more clear than their freshly-pressed clip for the dulcet, Rhodes-soaked and vibe-heavy joint “Stuck”. It finds the duo of supple altos delivering tender and affectionate lines about life, love and culture, revealing the makings of a whole new wave of SoulquariansWell-versed in Yoruba folklore, spirituality and their broad spectrum of music.I love these young ladies. I think they have a great future ahead of them. They’re really talented.They give me hope for the next generation of music makers.This is the type of image our young girls need to see. Give it a listen and let me know of you like it.

D’Angelo- Really Love

What’s remarkable about Black Messiah, other than the fact that it actually exists, is how fresh D’Angelo sounds when slotted next to modern R&B artists. It’s the same trick The Roots pull off with every new album—sounding inherently classic yet completely of the present. There’s a thematic and sonic awareness to Black Messiah—credited to D’Angelo And The Vanguardthat makes it so much more than a long-delayed comeback album from an artist widely declared a genius some 15 years ago. It’s somehow the past, present, and future all in one.

Here’s the lyrics:

When you call my name
When you love me gently
When you’re walking near me
Doo doo wah I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

When you look at me
I open up instantly
I fall in love so quickly
Doo doo wah I’m in really love with you, doo doo wah I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you

All night beside you I’d lay
I love you deep when you come to my bed
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
Ooh wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

When you touch me there
When you make me tingle
When our nectars mingle
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love
I’m not an easy man, to overstand, you feel me
But girl your patient with me
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you, I’m in really love with you

All night I wish for you here
Lay your head beside my hip
Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you

Doo doo wah, I’m in really love with you
I’m in really love with you
Oh how I love the little things you do
I’m in really love with you

Maimouna Youssef- We’re Already Royal

Maimouna Youssef and Brian “B.Kyle” Atkins team up again to create a powerful visual for “We’re Already Royal” – one of the leading songs from Maimouna’s mixtape – The Reintroduction of Mumu Fresh. I bought this mixtape and it’s amazing! Her music is very refreshing. You wont be disappointed. This video project shows how the modern day African American community still holds the same indicative set of core values, morals, and ethics instilled throughout history and evident in ancestral memory. Let it be known that at the core, we are Kings and Queens, despite the assumptions or misconceptions others may have of us as a people. I found this to be a very inspiring video. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

African Dance by Ife Jie, this video is Amazing!

African Dance is an art form that has long represented many things to it’s people, specifically as an expression of emotion and creativity that allows Africans and members of the Afrikan Diaspora to honor and celebrate the brothers and sisters among us and our ancestors. With this video we wanted to focus on showcasing the beauty of dance and our heritage in it’s simplest form.
