West coast hip-hop/funk pioneer Declaime links up with Blu to give us his thought provoking and cerebral new single, “Internally Yours”, from his forthcoming album, Young Spirit.
The song features the two Cali lyrical geniuses spitting some introspective bars about worldly topics from greed and the human spirit to the ongoing police brutality and corruption in Los Angeles. They flawlessly make wordplay magic over a smooth, mellow neosoul driven soundscape provided by Georgia Anne Muldrow. Declaime explains the meaning behind “Internnally Yours” and who the song is speaking to:
“‘Internally Yours’ is about inner truth. I’m talking about all the cats running this world to see that they are just like us. Their heart beats just like us,” said Declaime. He also explains the concept behind the album and everything he and Blu are addressing. “The whole album is about how the media and government…food messing with the kid’s heads and their young spirits. Blu’s speaking on some truths he had locked inside of him.”

Betta Act Like You Know.
KRISWONTWO is back again after his critically acclaimed Ms. One E.P.(1 of 2 g.a.m’s all-rap efforts) to bring you CEREMONI, his debut album.
“It has a lot of different meanings. Ceremoni is the Danish spelling for Ceremony. I’ve been tripping off how music is in it’s origin ceremonial in every way. In popular culture music is not respected at all, people just want fast food – but music is just like food, you just got to make a serious decision what you put in your body and soul. I’m trying to make some organic and healthy music and I’m learning everyday. Music is ceremonial in my life. It’s something I do everyday, like praying you know.”
It’s Raw. Elegant. Incredibly musical.
Omar, Stacy Epps, Liv Lykke, Amalia, Nanna B, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Skyzoo, Oh No, El Da Sensei and MED. They ALL on it. And it’s available now.

Due May 19th via Mello Music Group, the album finds the prophetic soul artist offering a singular voice that provides conscious rhymes over dusty beats suffused with gritty drums and hypnotic loops provided by producer Chris Keys.

Save your breath! I don’t want to hear what I already know… Your creative
presentation is unwanted and unwarranted. The truth shines clear and pure
when words don’t taint the reality. All uttered explanations are hearsay, ya
dig… Even if it came from your momma, friend or a trend, you still gotta add
your own two cents in; and that small but powerful income comes from your
experience or intuition only! So, who / what is your real homie?… The spirit
already told me, so what you bringing is definitely phony! Exception is..,
that you are totally transparent. Break that word down, why don’t cha! Trans
= across / beyond, and parent = the individual most trusted teaching you the
“ways” of life. Be beyond what is professed or what is taught to you by other
externally minded “teachers,” for they too may have been misguided by the
words that attempt to describe our true reality. Float!, like a buoy and
observe! A picture is worth a thousand words!…
Steve Taylor takes us on an acoustic guitarist’s journey drenched in gratitude and melancholy in ‘To Be Graced’ the first single from his long anticipated ‘The Land Of Milk And Honey LP’ to be released on SomeOthaShip Connect, this July.
The bittersweet, strong-yet-bloodied tone of his songwriting choices lends depth to the complex chordal structures he explores on his instrument and when the mellotron-ed string section sweeps in…forget about it, the mood is undeniable.
Steve’s high tenor is steady and somber, merging Brazilian jazz, folk, and rock with minimalist finesse – letting the melody of the piece breathe easy.
To sum it all up, if Neil Young, James Taylor, Thom Yorke, Morrissey, Carole King and Sade went all gene splice crazy…you’d have To Be Graced, by Steve Taylor.
Biggie died March 9th, I was born March 10th, you do the math,” announces Ayun Bassa on his 2014 track “Yellow.”
Sounds like Kan Kick and Declaime have been in the kitchen cookin’ up some goodies that’ll definitely give you a sweet tooth…
Cake boss goes straight for the gut but without all the high fructose corn syrup…
Produced by the man Kan Kick, also known as Kan Zulu…Kan The Man, and many other fonk aliases..but one thing’s for sure: there is only one Kan Kick…and this joint here kicks like a whole afternoon of kungfu…might need a little foot surgery after this one…and to add to it…we have Dr.Stokley the Fonk Monk also known in some of the last true hip hop circles as Declaime the Poet…
Declaime always has something serious to say…and man…does he say it!!…all I have to say is these two together are a combination unmatched…
I heard through the grapevine that a full Kan Kick & Dudley Perkins album is in the works. ..no rap…all singing…that should be very funky as well as very interesting…keeping fingers crossed!
