Off N9ne’s Welcome To Strangeland album. In line with Tech's intro, a HUGE thank you to all the brave men and women who've served and who are currently serving in our armed forces. The freedoms that I (too often) take for granted are defended and preserved by people far more courageous than myself. Thank you.

Via the Directors Jeremy Searle and Josh Franer:
Outro follows a girl born from space. She struggles with loneliness, and the creatures that haunt her, but eventually she finds the light and feels connected to the world around her. She discovers herself and is at peace with her place in it all.

Talwst and Illangelo let loose their long-awaited EP, Alien Tentacle Sex. I was fortunate enough to hear this project in it's entirety a few weeks back and I'm confident that you'll agree that Alien Tentacle Sex is one of the better hip-hop projects of 2012. Incredible from beginning to end. Regarding the project, Illangelo said, "It's a musical project that has been in works for over 5 years since we first met in Vancouver, Canada." Shouts to Talwst & Illangelo for providing us fans with top-notch quality music for FREE. Word.

Good news, good news. Talwst Santiago will be releasing his highly-anticipated EP, Alien Tentacle Sex, next Tuesday. The project is fully-produced by Illangelo - the man behind some of Drake & The Weeknd's biggest hits. I heard the EP in it's entirety earlier today. I can vouch; it's super dope. Like incredible. Make sure to check out Talwst Santiago's thought-provoking track Peace Tonight - which TheJourney was fortunate enough to World Premier a few months back. Via Talwst's people:
The debut record from TALWST, "Alien Tentacle Sex" is out May 22, 2012 - a date which coincides with a lunar eclipse: "I'm putting myself between the listener and the world for a moment," he admits. The album weaves together classic instrumentation with dreamy layers of slow-burning seduction. With a tracklisting that boasts a luxe blend of complex arrangements and elements of tribal African rhythms layered beneath sinister synths and debauched lyricism. Inspired by bridging together the foreign and familiar, the album laments the rawness of post-midnight romance - track "I'd Die" tells a brazen tale of lustful desperation, with searing atmospheric blends and rattling rhythm samples, while the destitute ballad "No Stones" exposes the emotional underbelly that threads together the album's core concept in a signature #SoTall style.
Mac Lethal - otherwise virally known as the nerdy white kid who killed Chris Brown's Look At Me Now while flipping pancakes - is back with his latest track, You're vs Your. The more and more I start to see through all the bullsh*t that social-conservatism has to offer, the more and more I truly appreciate Mac's socially-consensus lyrics. Enjoy..

Jhameel's 5-week series You Free will be released in the same groundbreaking manner as Waves (one new single per week for five weeks). Via the San Fran vocalist:
Are You Free is an atomic release of fiery emotions, thrown over a distorted, groovy beat. Bolstered by Jhameel's sweeping pop-infused vocals, the track hits hard musically and lyrically.

Too fresh. Via Jake (the lead singer of Easy Does It):
This was the first cover song we ever learned as a band, wayyy back in the day…. so it was only right that we paid proper homage. These guys shaped our lives, straight up…..we’re just some kids that wanna rap to guitars too. We tried to keep it in the spirit of the Beastie Boys as best we could - so the video is us dressed up as characters from their iconic ass music videos, and actin nuts on camera.

Jhameel's previous music series, Waves, was fresh. Check out all our prior tracks on the rising San Fran artist here. Via Jhameel:
I'm releasing my new five song music series entitled "Are You Free" next week :D! I'll be releasing the songs one by one every Tuesday for five weeks, this is the strongest music I've written to date, and I'm so excited to share it with you :)

Fresh off of some college dates and sold out shows with A$AP Rocky, G-Eazy is gearing for a big 2012 with the release of his Marilyn music video, and the dusty trail of this summer's Van's Warped Tour on the horizon.
Cool, but I'm still stuck on this sea creature..

Raf Riley is the latest to remix Usher's chart-topper Climax. Via Raf Riley:
22 year old up and coming London producer Raf Riley goes in on his remix of Climax. Look out for Raf Riley's upcoming Dog Unit EP out soon on Jeffree's.
Kanye lost his mother to a botched-comsetic surgery a few years back. Now pops up video of Kanye and his mother singing Hey Mama back in the day - presumable before the rest of us caught wind of the track. I can't even begin to fathom the pain involved in losing a mother. If you dig this video as much as I do, make sure to tell someone you care about how much you love them tonight.

Adair Lion has garnished nearly 100,000 views in less than 5 days. Pretty legit. I'll be the first to admit what an asshole I was growing up; believing that homosexuals were somehow sinners, destined for an eternity in hell. Maybe I wasn't an asshole though, maybe I just naively followed the conservative views that were pressed upon my fragile and still-developing psyche as a youth. Either way, the message in Adair Lion is not expressed enough throughout hip hop.

I know I haven't posted something in so long, but it's because I've been working on making sure I graduate from USC, and working on getting my recital together (which I had on April 10, 2012). Here's a version of Midnight Whispers that one of my really good friends, Tim McKay, arranged for a 17-piece big band specifically for me.
If you're wondering about the shaky recording, it's my mom on her iPhone dancing along to the song haha (you know her generation isn't too savvy with iPhone's lol). Hope you enjoy. :)
Via Show Studio;
Filmmaker Ruth Hogben collaborates with award-winning musician Kanye West to create a film for his single Lost in the World. The song, which features Justin Vernon of Bon Iver, is taken from West's fifth album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Hogben's piece breaks the mould of popular rap aesthetics while still celebrating the extraordinary talent that has made West a modern icon.

First and foremost; happy birthday to the birthday-boy Brian Chin aka Warm Gun. The UofW emcee was kind enough to share his latest project, Adventures, with the rest of us on his birthday. Pretty sick. I'm super stoked to be able to world premiere Warm Gun's long-awaited 6 track EP, Adventures, via TheJourney. No joke, this project is insanely-dope from beginning to end. As such, treat it kindly. Make sure to check out all of TheJourney's prior posts on Warm Gun here and look for multiple official videos to spawn from Adventures in the coming weeks..
Rick Ross, Wale, and Meek Mill drop the lead visual from the Maybach Music Group Presents Self Made Vol. 2 out June 26th. After 12 hours of straight bar studying today, my brain feels like mush-mush. Can't even read straight anymore. When I first read the title I thought it said "Bag of Honey", haha..
