Kriswontwo - standard picKRISWONTWO 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.

Ankles – New Rap Single from Georgia Anne Muldrow’s Thoughtiverse

Georgia Anne Muldrow is a seeker and truth-teller. The words on her debut rap album, “A Thoughtiverse Unmarred,” balance a beautiful delivery with brutal honesty. 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.

HEARSAY! by Tehellme Watchakneau (Musings From The Ship)



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!…

To Be Graced – Steve Taylor (AUDIO SINGLE)

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.”

Such boasts would be blaspheme to Hip Hop heads if not backed up by the dizzying display of lyricism, harmony and conceptual complexity that makes his debut “HUGs+SLAPs” reminiscent of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Ready To Die.”
Born Ayun Bassa to Liberian emigrants, and known as Dashawn Cassell to the United States government, the 6’3 280-pound gentle giant has more in common with the late Biggie Smalls than just his size and shade.
Both introduced themselves to the game with autobiographical debuts that draw on the joy and pain of being a Black man in modern America. But while Ayun’s psyche proves to be less pessimistic than B.I.G.’s, whose doubt was colored by the chaos of the crack era, things haven’t changed much since back in the days when Biggie was rapping about Cazal shades and cornbraids.

Declaime X Kan Kick – CAKE BOSS (AUDIO SINGLE)

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 ZuluKan 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. rap…all singing…that should be very funky as well as very interesting…keeping fingers crossed!


Brown Hands- A poem By Ashley Wilkerson

Ashley Wilkerson – Brown Hands

Brown Hands- A poem By Ashley Wilkerson

Hey Now.

 The next few Musings From The Ship are going to cut pretty deep and really good this month.

Actress, poet, playwright, activist AND documentarian Ashley Wilkerson joins us this week with a baby fresh poetic offering from the womb of her mind.

Brown Hands enters as an monumental ode to her brother who was murdered by gun violence in 2007, travels the rawness of grief and regally arrives at a resolve that bursts open with compassion.

File this poem in the Alchemical section, please.

‘Cause Ms. Wilkerson has surely done the inner work to feel completely at home there.

Take a journey with her to a scenario that is happening at this very moment in….
