Trademark Da Skydiver and Young Roddy…. man, two of my favorite NOLA artists. Their new project,,Family Business, is truly a dope way to start off 2017. From the instrumentals to the lyrical content, this project reminds me of cruising down Chef Menteur Hwy in New Orleans east pre Katrina. It reminds me of the days me and my brother Khalil used to walk to Six Flags NOLA from my grandmother Momae’s house. It reminds me of daiquiris, king cake, and the 504 boys. This mixtape really brings me back… check it out: https://itun.es/us/L1RGgb
Live in Concert is probably one of my favorite Curren$y and Wiz collaborations. I’ve been an avid follower of Curren$y that Hot Spitta’s music for almost 12 years (Wiz for almost 7), and I have no plans on stopping the music train.
I love the fact that this project takes a simple, and raw approach as far as sampling is concerned. Live in Concert is all about good vibes, relaxation, as well as powerful fusion jazz samples that will make your dad reminisce on his college days.
The retro 70’s vibe shines through with samples from Bobbi Humphrey’s Fancy Dancer album. That element alone is how I snuck Curren$y into my 65 year old dad’s playlist (hehe 😐). Check it out below: https://youtu.be/BINiRPGUJrk
“The sooner you give, the sooner you get to have a love of your own.”
“The longer it takes, the better you get to know a love of your own.”
Great lyrics …
A rooftop wedding with the New Orleans sunset as the back drop? Count me in!!
My coworker and good friend Donna married the love of her life August 1st at the world renowned Jackson Brewery in the New Orleans French Quarter. What a wonderful night filled with love and fun. It was a true honor to have been included in the festivities and absolutely wonderful getting to see John and Donna celebrate their love for one another. I pray they have many more years of happiness! Love y’all!!!!
