Quan Goes Independent With Amalgam Digital

We're finally going to get to hear an album from the talented rapper/singer thanks to Amalgam Digital. Those in the know will remember when the world was introduced to Quan from his classic song "Just A Moment (ft. Nas)."

Here's a new video with Quan saying what's going on and give a nice freestyle to show that he's kept his skills sharp while he's been on the shelf (then released).

If we get two albums from Quan this year, Cormega's "Born & Raised", AND Saigon's "Greatest Story Never Told" this might be the best year for real street hip-hop since 1995... (If is the key word)

A Hip Hop Musical (and it's written by a real rapper, Sticky Fingaz)

The Sticky Fingaz movie "A Day In The Life" is finally coming out on July 7th. I can't wait. Here's the trailer (which also plays like a music video).

A DAY IN THE LIFE Music Video/Trailer from KB on Vimeo.

After hearing Sticky's debut album "Black Trash" and realizing how incredible the story was and wanting to see it created as a movie it's good to see that Sticky was able to make it happen (even if he didn't get to do the Black Trash movie like he originally intended).

I'm going to buy it, and the best price that I was able to find on the net is amazon which has it for only $ 9.99 (w/ FREE Super Saver Shipping).

If you love me for the beauty of my personality...

Then I'll stay here forever, Don't you see?

I just love the feeling and meaning of this song. I've always felt that when I fall in love again that I want to make sure that me and the lucky woman (lol) will both love each other for our personalities, how we make each other laugh, how we respect each other, and how we trust each other completely. This song illustrates that feeling perfectly and I feel that's why it speaks to me.

Angel Taylor - Maple Tree

This great song is available from Angel Taylor's debut album "Love Travels" that's only available digitally (on itunes). If you want to see her live you can catch her touring with another talented singer-songwriter, Kate Voegele.

Here's another song from her album titled "Like You Do."
