Girl Fire, Preview | Felix Cartal – Black to White (Feat. Miss Palmer)

Posted by on March 1, 2012

Don’t know what you’re working with on this first day of March but here in D.C. it’s 70 degrees out and far too sunny to be working. This day was made for the following things: 2.5 hour lunches (whoops), outdoor cocktails, driving with the windows down, and Felix Cartal’s latest banger, which features some great vocals from Miss Palmer (of “No Beef” fame) and an enormously infectious chord progression that I haven’t been able to get out of my head all day. Been a minute since we’ve posted straight up girl fire on FNT so be sure to give this one a listen. “Black to White” drops on iTunes on March 6th.

Hip-Hop | Introducing I.O.U | Hip-Hop

Posted by on May 14, 2011

I.O.U. is made up of Izee, Buck, and Chuck, their manager. They were formally known as Deuce1s, under which they put out their take on the Black and Yellow beat “Black and Scarlet” and the Empire State of Mind track “Rutgers State of Mind.” When I first heard them back in January I was impressed, but instead of dropping tracks they decided to put a lot more time in their productions. Here is their newest track, its incredible and features some hot vocals from Evangelia Psarakis. They will be releasing a free album in the coming weeks entitle B.O.M.B.S. Be sure to check them out on FACEBOOK.

Hip-Hop | Lupe Fiasco – All Black Everything | Hip-Hop

Posted by on February 22, 2011

Lupe leaked yet another cut off of his highly anticipated project, “Lasers”. In this track which he’s calling his “favorite record ever,” Lupe imagines a world that is absent slavery and racism. Listen to the song carefully, it’s packed with a punch.

Electro, House | Yves Larock – Say Yeah (Rivaz Biglife Edit) | Electro/House

Posted by on February 21, 2011

At this point I’ll pretty much take any opportunity to post a Yves track. His house productions are driven by African-influenced vocals that seem to be matched by very few artists, especially nowadays. More producers should be digging into their archives and flipping tracks like these; I may not remember the last guy who remixed Black and Yellow, but I will certainly remember Rivaz from this banger. If you liked my Paradise post from earlier in the week (see: here), you’ll undoubtedly dig this track.

Hip-Hop, Reggae | Stephen Marley ft Melanie Fion – “No Cigarette Smoke” | Reggae

Posted by on February 8, 2011

I’m shocked no one mentioned the pitiful musical performances put on last night at the Super Bowl. I did not expect The Black Eyed Peas to butcher their popular songs so badly, but fortunately for them most peoples attention has been focused on Christina Aguilera’s disgraceful attempt to sing the National Anthem. I almost posted the video but it’s just too awkward for me to handle. Not only did she add way too much spice to the tune, she forgot several of the lines. Thankfully there weren’t like a ton of people watching Fox last night… At least I can say the Doritos video above helped soothe the pain – this was definitely my favorite commercial of the night.

Hip-Hop | Skeetox Superbowl Remix Edition | HIP-HOP

Posted by on February 6, 2011

DJ Skee is a people pleaser (similar to SweetE?). His remix of “Black & Yellow” celebrates the clash between Wiz’s love for the Steelers and Lil’ Waynes passion for the Packers. Although remixes of “Black & Yellow” have gotten old, this one has something for everyone. If you end up partying with friends today, add this track to your playlist.
