Seeing is Believing 10/08: New Q-Tip Video

8 10 2009

I don’t know how I didn’t post this joint since it’s been in heavy rotation since I heard it off The Renaissance (check it out if you still haven’t heard). Q-Tip makes a video for the funky “Life is Better” with Norah Jones, as he pays homage to Hip Hop and some of his favorite artists and inspirations. The Abstract takes an artistic approach for his “Life is Better” visualization by rendering black and white images with slight color. Nice video to compliment a dope track!

Dope or Nope 10/8: New Lupe Fiasco Joint

Lupe Fiasco – Fire
Lupe Fiasco

Lupe bounces back spittin’ viciously over a Jimi Hendrix sampled guitar riff on “Fire”. Unfortunately the track will not appear on Lupe’s Lasers album, but it’s a lil something to listen to while we wait in the meantime. The current single from Lasers is “Shining Down”, Lupe’s second collaborative effort with Matthew Santos as a single. Lasers is slated to be released December 15th.
