Abstract Hip-Hop, Videos | Flying Lotus – Until The Quiet Comes (Short Film)

Posted by on September 9, 2012

Flying Lotus, like MF Doom, is one the worlds top Abstract Hip-Hop artists. On October 1st Flying Lotus’ next album, “Until The Quiet Comes” is releasing. Being familiar with his entire discovery, Flying Lotus is undoubtedly going to blow our minds. The short film above is NSFW, but not because of nudity but the violence depicted within. Filmed at Nickerson Gardens in Los Angeles, CA, director Kahil Joseph does not hold back in showing the life of those who live there. I understand what Kahil did with this video, death represents the quiet, and Flying Lotus’ music revitalizes the spirit within the man who was killed.

Abstract Hip-Hop, Featured | Featured Artist: Prof.Logik

Posted by on August 23, 2012

Abstract Hip-Hop isn’t anything new to FNT, but is still an underrated and misunderstood sub-genre of Hip-Hop. The chatbox legend and close friend, W8, actually introduced me to Prof.Logik about a year ago. Since then, I have experienced  amazing instrumentals from his productions. Prof.Logik is 27 years old and was born and raised in Jamaica Queens, New York. He currently lives in Spartanburg, South Carolina, where he feels his music has absorbed southern influences. Those familiar with Abstract Hip-Hop know producers such as MF Doom or Flying Lotus, and would agree that each artist has a very distinct style they run with. Prof.Logik has a very euphoric/indie sound to his works, music that you can just relax and float to. The three tracks below have all released within this past month, “12-Bit Crush On you” having been released today. His Soundcloud is jam packed with free downloads, so if you are digging his vibes, don’t be shy and show Prof.Logik some love.
