ON REPEAT: TDE’s KENDRICK LAMAR New Single “i” (“I Love Myself”) Produced By Rahki, Mixed By Ali

photo (10)

Fans have mixed feelings on the much anticipated Kendrick Lamar’s first single from the sophomore album of the Compton, Ca rapper which features a sample of the Isley Brothers’ “That Lady,” but I love it. I’m happy that Kendrick went in a completely different direction that most expected him to while most importantly carrying a message with it not only thru the controversial album art which features a blood and crip together with their hands forming the signs of hearts instead of gang symbols. There have been comparisons to Outkast but Kendrick has been speaking about listening to The Isley Brothers and other classic music for some time.

“I bought the whole Isley Brothers collection,” Lamar said last year to Flaunt magazine. “I know all these songs because they were playing in my house growing up, but I didn’t know what I was singing … Now, I realize they were talking about some serious relationship s–t – being in love, being out of love …They were on some grown s–t.”

I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next to come from the album slated for release this Fall on Interscope Records. What are your thoughts on the song? Before reading any comments, take a listen and give your genuine opinion. Don’t judge artist’s music based on the perception of other’s first.

(VIDEO) BEYONCE & JAYZ On The Run Tour Finale – My Favorite Parts

Screen Shot 2014-09-21 at 11.19.55 AM

I’ve seen Beyonce perform and was at the edge of my seat the entire night, the way that she could carry you through an emotional journey from your “Single Ladies” days to gut wrenching times of “Resentment” to your overjoyed feelings of being in love on “Love On Top” in a matter of minutes was amazing. I’ve produced and have witnessed Jay-Z concerts where with the unique charm of the Marcy Projects, Brooklyn born MC could have you rapping “Ni%%as In Paris” 8x in a row with Kanye West on their “Watch The Throne” Tour to understanding his love/hate relationship with the media while he performed “Holy Grail” side by side with Justin Timberlake while having you with two arms in the air while he “reintroduced himself” or “getting back at them for doing what they did to the Coldcrush” on “H to the Izzo.” But other than the constraints of censored award shows or million dollar videos, I’ve never seen the duo perform LIVE together.

Screen Shot 2014-09-21 at 11.49.39 AM

What’s enjoyable to watch is the combination of the two powerhouses perform their endless hits, the transitions are smooth and the complementing visuals they created make you feel like your watching a soundtrack to the movies that are being played. Beyonce does this in all of her shows but having Jay-Z take part in these figuratively & literally “Upgraded” his already entertaining show. But the reality is you aren’t just watching a scripted movie play, you are also watching a true love story. I’m sure when they started dating they didn’t now what the future held, they were both entertainers and it was exciting to feel love for someone who understood your job but they also now had the public paying attention to their every move, hoping they were a perfect love story to strive for but at the same time hoping they have problems too so that the everyday person could feel their relationships challenges were common even for them and not the end of the world.

My favorite part of the night is when the videos transitioned from “This is not real life” to “This is REAL life” where home videos of a once private love affair including engagement videos, wedding clips, the birth of their baby Blue Ivy and Jay-Z doing pushups with and on his daughter.. This followed segments where you see an angry Beyonce being human such as leaving several deleted messages on a man’s phone where she had clever one liners such as “there’s nothing open at 3AM except women’s legs!” or “I don’t need your money, I’m rich!” and any woman or man could relate to the vulnerable, insecure feelings.

Another highlight of the evening was their closing remarks to the city of Paris which they mentioned was special because it was where they were engaged and conceived their baby. Beyonce gushes that she is “Jay-Z’s number one fan and she is in love with him” while Jay-Z embraces her and lets the audience and world know that he thinks she is the “greatest entertainer of our time and enjoyed sharing the stage with the woman he loves.” Whether or not the romance is played up for cameras, you genuinely feel a respect for their craft that they bring out the best in one another and a love that carries many shades through years of being best friends and committed to one another without claim of being perfect. Hoping those who are fans of the two get to see one of the most entertaining and well produced shows I’ve seen in a long time but most importantly I hope everyone in their lifetime experiences a similar love in their own lives that might be a roller coaster at times but even with fear and it’s ups and downs is an amazing, enjoyable experience that is documented and shared for later reminiscing. I’ve witnessed their love firsthand dancing next to them at Diddy’s 2014 New Year’s Party last year in Miami and can attest to seeing there is something there that only of the two of them truly understand while everyone tries to analyze for them. Rather than speculate or assume, I think they should be left alone to see what their future holds. I’ve witnessed their genuine love first hand last year at Diddy’s Ciroc the New Year’s Miami party dancing next to our group on the dance floor and I hope for only the best for them.

SHOW ME: SSMF MURS 3:16 Stage Day 1 At Sunset Stip Music Festival LIVE On Dash Radio 9.20.2014 (PHOTOS)

Dash Radio was on site for their very first festival livestream at the first hip hop stage that the Sunset Strip Music Festival has ever had, curated by indie hip hop icon Murs. Toni Monroe, TayF3rd, Zion I and Joey Fatts warmed up the crowd in the already heated crowd (by the Cali sun.) Highlights included POS performing in the middle of the crowd, Mod Sun from Minnesota performing for the first time in LA after recently moving here and winning over the crowd with his amazing energy. Shout out to Propoganda giving props not only to West Covina, but the historic Project Blowed and DJ Hed keeping the bodies moving in between sets. Climax of the night belongs to headliners Dizzy Wright with his live band, Riff Raff getting braided while performing and Houston’s Bun B of UGK who had everyone leaving feeling like International Players rapping to their anthem. Looking forward to seeing the increase in hip hop to the annual festival on the infamous Sunset Strip.

Not in LA? Don’t worry, catch ALL performances on the #IndependentGrind station on the all new Dash Radio FREE streaming APP or online at dashradio.com
