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 Brazilparalleled 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.

C Plus - Captain Kirk [Official Video] from Bosse Media on Vimeo.


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.

Download: C Plus - Captain Kirk —> here

Live @ The Dojo Presents…
The Loops & Legends Series: IdioGenius - The Electronic Music Machine 

 
One of the most profound beauties of creation is the uncertainty of what may come out.  If it’s something unsatisfying, then the point would be to find what you did or where you went wrong.  Plus.. we all have flaws we need to just let out of our systems.. this in turn, will leave room in our minds for the better ideas we are capable of.  
The Beauty of Sampling.
I didn’t grow up as a hip hop head.  I love the music, but I honestly couldn’t tell you any track names from a Tribe album or the major artists Dilla produced for.  I’ve only heard one Slum Village track and I’m just now understanding the beauty of The Foreign Exchange. But all name-dropping aside.. I have a fairly new-found love for the concept of Sampling. I’ve been doing it for about 3 years now and my whole perspective on music was changed forever. 
Listen. Enjoy.
