Ohene tweeted this at us yesterday and I didn’t get around to watching it until this morning. It’s an instant share. It’s so off the wall that I love it.
The song, produced by Chaz Van Queen, manages to be hype but also laid back at the same time, and the video is a collection of the internet. I especially appreciate the Mr. Perfect cameo in there as pro wrestling is the best thing ever. Enjoy “5″ by Ohene Cornelius. Also, grab his whole new album “Cycle of Fifths”here.
Hi everybody! Lakutis dropped his mixtape yesterday the other day. It’s free so you should probably download the whole thing, it’s pretty good.
“Lakutis in the House”
This track was produced by friend of the blog, Chaz Van Queen, and is uptempo with a pretty nice synth line. As I am jumping into the world of DJing this song will most definitely be included in my sets.
Another tight synth line, another tight song. Lakutis fucks our favorite everything here and rapper/excellent-Twitter guy DVS lends a verse.
“I’m Better Than Everybody”
Hip hop culture is about being the best, right? Lakutis gets straight to the point here with the hook. Kool A.D. from Das Racist has a guest verse on this song and I was actually on hand when it was recorded. That makes me feel super cool. It happened at Chaz’s apartment after we filmed the “Do You Like It?” music video. There were latency issues, but it all got worked out.
The rest of the songs are good, too. I’m not gonna write about them all. That’s boring. Also I’m lazy. Just listen:
I was lucky enough to be on hand at the filming of the music video for Chaz Van Queen’s song “Do U Like It?” on which Kool A.D. of Das Racist is featured. It was a lot of fun and our friends from RGB Video Productions did a bang up job. Expect the official video to drop soon, but in the meantime check out this highlight reel of behind the scenes footage cut to Chaz’s song VanRandom . For more on Chaz (including an entire free album) check out www.chazvanqueen.com and also hit up www.dasracist.net to check out what Kool A.D. is up to.
Bonus: Since this is only a highlight reel, might as well give you a legitimate music video to watch. Check out Das Racist’s video for their song “Michael Jackson”. I’ll include the video for “Black or White” by Michael Jackson so you get all the references.
