“The Dissolve” – A Brand New Music Video from Besatree + Interview – Out Now!!

Sup all! Hope the week is treating you well..

Check out this awesome video from Besatree for his brand new track “The Disolve”!!!

I thought we could switch it up a little and get the man himself to answer a few questions about the track and his music in general.. Big thanks to him for getting involved.
Check it out here:

What was the inspiration for this track/ video?
544291_10151340453834685_418931249_nBESATREE: Couple of things actually, one major factor was the loss of being a “stepdad”. Although it is a breakup track, for me the emphasis of loss is on no longer being in contact with my ex’s son who I helped raise from age 0-5. I have no legal ties or anything so I just stay stuck on the sidelines. It’s also about moving from a home that I really like. I lived here with a family, now I live here with a 6lb dog hahahaha so I need something more practical… on the same note tho, I feel devastated. So, that’s why the video release date is the last day of me staying here.  If you don’t mind us asking; what is your weapon of choice when it comes to production?BESATREE: No problem. I use Ableton Live for the majority of things. Big fan.

When can we expect a Besatree full length?
BESATREE: Honestly, probably a year out before I even am thinking about anything like that. Right now, I’m in singles/video mode. I am finding the artistic experience much more intriguing and enjoyable to go through the entire process of really making something stand out for just one track. First, making something worthy of a video… then, the whole video process is just another entire realm. Also, I come from doing albums all the time so it’s just a good change of pace for me right now.

Who are your greatest influences as an artist?
BESATREE: Resilient people. Emotions can just take over my whole fucking life so quickly. Resilience is admirable to say the least.

If you could work with any producer in the world, who would it be?
BESATREE: Maybe Think from the UK or Equalibrum…. Probably not someone everyone’s already heard… make our own waves.

Your dream collaboration..?
BESATREE: Das Racist

Any plans of touring soon; where are you planning on visiting?
BESATREE: No laid out plans as of yet. A few misc out of state shows but no tour or anything as of now. The Dissolve is not just a track for me… it’s the journal entry to my life right now, and right now… shit’s in shambles and I’ve got some pickup to do… Huge Thanks to DoHipHop for talking with me on the video/track, appreciate you guys. Big love also to my fellow cohorts: Supremeneckprotecta and Gadzooks / Red Pillgrimage.

It’s only a pleasure man; Keep up the great work!!

If you haven’t already, be sure to check out his last album “The Soiled” available for here:

“Can’t Think” – New Single from Besatree – Out Now!!

Check out this simply stunning track from Besatree called “Can’t Think”!!

“Can’t Think” is a song about growing older and the wear and tear we as humans take in doing so… More specifically it’s about Besatree slowly losing his hearing… and his mind as a result. Probably the single most scary thought for any passionate musician or music lover. Really loved the overall result and message of this track and I’ve had it on prominent rotation since I first heard it.

Enjoy! ~dhh

Sage Francis’ “Copper Gone” – Album Review + “Grace” Official Music Video Out Now!

Hey peeps..

So, recently we had one of our friends and non-do hiphop affiliate to take a listen to the new Sage Francis album “Copper Gone” and share their thoughts… This is what they had to say:

“With a ‘DIY or Die’ approach the HipHop veteran delivers a compelling, captivating classic for 2014. The album deals with the artist’s signature outlook on social and contemporary issues in and out of the HipHop scene, validating his ‘silverback gorilla status’ through cunning multi-tiered wordplay and melancholic undertones. The proclamation is that Sage is here to stay, and even though he professes ‘both sides of my bed are the wrong ones and I am always waking up’ he continues to arouse the minds of his fans and followers”.

and what an amazing album it is!

Sage also recently dropped this assiduous official music video for the track “Grace” from the album; it really does the track justice!!
Check it out here:

“Columbus, Ohio-bred jazz-hop producer, teacher, DJ, emcee, and Polar Entertainment head J. Rawls presents “Bills”, from his forthcoming album The Legacy. Featuring a guest verse from Brooklyn rap veteran Masta Ace and produced by Bombeardo, “Bills” is the newest leak from The Legacy, set to feature Illa J, Oddisee, Wordsworth, Nottz Raw, Blueprint, JG the Juggernaut, P Blackk, Jean P, Driskill, Ms Sara D, Rashad, John Robinson, Ceezar, Lea Anderson and Keisha Soleil as well as production from Kev Brown, RASHAD, The Mighty DR, Rob Riley, Lakim and DJ O Sharp. “Bills” comes hot on the heels of the leak of “The Rest Of My Life” featuring Illa J (listen on KevinNottingham.com). The Legacy will be the final solo album from Rawls, the producer behind tracks for rap luminaries from Mos Def & Talib Kweli to the Beastie Boys, and to commemorate his transition he produces only one track on the album. “I had the opportunity to work with Ace years ago and when the chance came to work with him again I jumped at it,” says Rawls. “Ace is one of the dopest lyricists I know. We both have the task of running labels and making sure the bills get paid. The song came together like clockwork.” The Legacy drops June 10. Click here to watch the official trailer for The Legacy.
