Decemba

Andre 3000 joins Divine Council on “Decemba (Remix)”

My clothes are torn, shred to pieces, purple pants Narnia. Hard to find, even in California. I was hornier rhan Incredible Hulk in a federal coat while the deputy spoke in a flirty tone, dirty song, she knew ’em all.” Richmond, Virginia is a city with a lot of unique talent. Divine Council is a . . .

Stream Kevin Ross’s Acapella Cover of Andre 3000’s “Prototype”

When I first heard Andre 3000‘s “Prototype,” I played it for at least a week straight. Naturally, I’m wary of anyone seeking to cover such a classic track, but I was impressed at what I heard upon listening to Kevin Ross‘s acapella cover. Kevin Ross isn’t just anyone; he’s a Motown Records signee who grew . . .

Future ft. Andre 3000 – “Benz Friendz (Watchutola)”

Future links up with the one and only Andre 3000 for “Benz Friendz (Watchutola),” a track to be included on his forthcoming album, Honest. As strange as it is that we can hear Andre on tracks with Future, it’s still always good to hear a verse from the reclusive ATLien. Both artists address the rampant . . .

It’s a great year for Outkast fans, in case you haven’t heard.

Beyonce ft. Andre 3000 – “Party (IAMNOBODI Remix)”

It wouldn’t have made sense for IAMNOBODI to remix “Party” during any other season. Beyonce‘s track, which features Andre 3000 and was originally on her album 4, has a distinctly summery feel to it. The original track, which samples Slick Rick and Keith Sweat, takes on a more experimental electronic feel thanks to the percussion, . . .

ESSNSE slows down Andre 3K’s “Prototype”

When Outkast released Speakerboxxx/The Love Below in 2003, I was enamored. Of course I loved Big Boi‘s southern rap cadences, but Andre 3000‘s take on psychedelic funk and jazz with Atlanta swag appealed to my senses. It was new and experimental and gritty while being soft. One of the standout tracks was “Prototype.” The release . . .

1000

N.E.R.D. – “1000” ft. Future

“Kinetic energy, a thousand times higher.” There’s no shortage of energy on N.E.R.D.‘s attention-grabbing new single, “1000.” Oh, and did I mention that Future is on it? I can hear this record booming off in clubs for months to come No_One Ever Really Dies releases on December 15th. No_One Ever Really Dies is slated to . . .

Hip-Hop Campaign Speech: Travis Scott

You could easily say that 2016 was one of the best years for hip-hop in recent memory, but who had the BEST year? The contributors at Artistic Manifesto submitted their pick of which artist had the biggest 2016, and wrote a speech from that artist’s perspective. Now it’s up to you, the reader, to decide . . .

Divine Council keeps it real with “Dirtbags In Distress” (Video)

Divine Council has had a lot of success centered around their “Decemba” remix with Andre 3000, but with “Dirtbags In Distress” they make it clear that they’re willing to let it all go for the right strain of weed. The hazy video finds the four man comfortable, kicking it on the couch as they smoke . . .

A Tribe Called Quest – ‘We Got It From Here…Thank You For Your Service’ (Album)

It’s been an absolutely mind numbing week for a number of people, but the release of A Tribe Called Quest‘s first album in almost two decades is damn sure a great way to cap it off. We Got It From Here…Thank You For Your Service is as jazzy of a venture as we’d expect from . . .
