AUDIO: Allowicious Vanguard - Father & Son
(click to DL)
This song is an ode to a few things.
Last year around this time, I was living with my father in the birthplace of the blues, The Mississippi Delta. My time in the Delta, along with all the music I made while down there, was a brand new experience for me. Not only was it my first time in the Delta, but it was my first time living with my father in a number of years. It was at this same time that I discovered Horace Silver’s album ‘Song For My Father’.
Hold tight because the irony doesn’t end there.
Horace Silver released ‘Song For My Father’ in 1965. He found inspiration to make the album after a trip he made to Brazil; a land as foreign to him as the Mississippi Delta was to me. What that trip for him birthed is an album with a title track that would later become one of Jazz’s greatest standards and one of my favorite compositions to date. I can only imagine if the reflections he had in Brazil
paralleled the ones I had while in the Delta.
So like I said, this song is an ode to few things: To the man that first composed the song, to the similar experiences that we shared, and to the men that helped make it possible for us to do so.
Here’s to Pops.
Behind the Front: Day 1 of C Plus’ “Stay Up” Video Shoot
This shoot actually almost got cancelled because of the rain but almost as instantly as we hit record, the rain stopped; Some sort of rap miracle or something. Chuck T was courteous enough to let us use his legendary porch which we later found out was used in handful of other video shoots and even a XXL shoot, we’re glad to add C Plus’ video into those ranks.
Stay tuned for “Stay Up” to drop in December just in time for your favorite holiday.
VIDEO: C Plus - Captain Kirk Directed by: Bosse Media
My two favorite parts of the video:
0:38 - Literally looks like he’s drinking in the smoke. Like he’s enjoying the most delicious slushy ever on a hot summer day. Hahaha.
1:28 - Rapid fire!
I’ve Been waiting a long time for this song to get a video. I don’t smoke anymore but I’ll be damn if this vid didn’t make me want to find the nearest bong and take a rip.
