Ab-Soul ft. Kendrick Lamar ‘ILLuminate’ (Official Video) & Lyrics

The concept is epic and Ab-Soul with Kendrick Lamar for ‘Illuminate’ will go down as an iconic collaboration in Hip Hop. Ab-Soul’s black hippie roots are combined with Lamar’s purist Hip Hop movement. This project is getting a lot of positive feedback from fans of both artists. “Illuminate” is from Ab-Soul’s independent album “Control System” under the Top Dawg Entertainment label.

Music Kept A Bullet From His Head! – “The Pianist” VIDEO (So not Hip Hop, but Happy Birthday Lisa Ford!)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME! As I grow a year older, I ponder on what I can do to make a difference in this world. I hope that this blog, which, as a writer, has been a dream of mine all of my life, serves as a muse that inspire others to pursue their dreams and never give up. I resolve to make this site even better in 2013 by having the courage to open up more and truly express myself & my love for music without boundaries.

At midnight, I brought in my ‘born day’ in a special way… by plopping on the couch and watching the only movie on cable worth watching at the time, ‘The Pianist’. The film (based on a true story) is about Polish-Jewish musician, Władysław Szpilmant, who escapes the jaws of death on numerous occasions at the hands of German soldiers. I included my favorite clip in this blog post, the horrific moment when he actually IS CAPTURED. This post is unique as this blog usually focuses on hip hop and modern music. But as you know, a lot of music we listen to today stems from the classics. During this part of the film, one assumes that the German solider seen is going to put a bullet in ‘The Pianist’ head. But Music itself, saves the musician as the soldier first instructs the pianist to play a song.
