Vezelay – Sedative

26 07 2009

I came across this guy after finding a Slipknot Shreds video that I think he made. I really like the vocals and the overall vibe of this song.

I can’t get enough of watching these videos on YouTube lately. Also, the guy who made this also wrote some pretty cool songs.

Kid Cudi – Day ‘N’ Nite (One Minute Rule)

18 07 2009


Before looking up a picture of Kid Cudi for this post I really thought that this was going to be a female pop-star of some sort. I’m going to assume that he’s a hip-hop artist which is a pleasant surprise. He looks like he might have more style and may bring something else to the table other than generic rhymes and ringtone-rap hooks. We’ll just have to see. Kid Cudi’s song “Day ‘N’ Nite” is currently at the #12 spot on the Billboard top 100 pop charts. I have my fingers crossed on this one, but I’m not expecting much since it is on the pop charts after all.

On a side note, it appears as though Universal Music Group is saving the music industry from the evil clutches of music consumers once again so I wouldn’t expect to ever see a video for this song here. You can however click here to watch it on YouTube. I’m not sure what good that does UMG, but whatever. Hitting play now…

MC Kapa – Global Music Project (Angola)

9 07 2009


As I’m sure you’re well aware, one of largest forms of currency in the rap world is street cred. Well let’s get it out of the way first and foremost, MC Kapa, a rapper from Luanda, Angola, has it in spades. While other rappers like Eminem, 50 Cent, and whoever else may be on the charts this week are getting their CDs taken away by angry parents for offensive lyrics, Kapa has had his lyrics censored by an oppressive government. For more on how he feels about 50 Cent, listen close for the drop in his song “Ponto de Situacao.”

From what I’ve recently learned about Angola and MC Kapa I’m going to assume that all of his lyrics are in Portuguese. Taking that into consideration, it’s obvious that he has a great cadence and vocal intonation despite my inability to understand the lyrics. In finding new artists for The Global Music Project, I’ve come across countless foriegn rappers that I of course didn’t understand, but hearing MC Kapa for the first time was vastly different. His music has a fire and soul to it that I haven’t heard in ages, regardless of genre or language.
