Big K.R.I.T. – KING Pt. 3

bigkrit

After hearing J. Cole tackle the track on Truly Yours, Big K.R.I.T. is the next to be inspired by the No I.D. production. On "KING Pt. 3," Krizzle uses the instrumental to air out some stuff that he's had marinating in his mind lately and lets his heart do the talking. You know the young king is always coming on his honest shit when the beat drops.

From Big K.R.I.T. to the fans. Pay attention.

16 New Rules To Live By...Because Jay-Z Said We Need #NewRules

If HOV says the world needs new rules, then the world needs new rules. 

Earlier today, Jay-Z went on a mini Twitter rant for the first, and probably last time. His Twitter rant basically let the world know that he's writing new rules for the world to abide by. 

Inspired by Jay-Z and his #NewRules manifesto on Twitter, GlobalGrind decided to come up with 16 "new rules" everyone should live by...because Jay-Z said we need new rules. 

So get out your pen and paper and write down these 16 #newrules to live by down under. 

1. Everyone is a god. #newrules

2. Roman numerals > regular numbers. #newrules 

VII IV XIII Roc A Fella Records/Roc Nation #magnacarta

— Mr. Carter (@S_C_) June 17, 2013

 

3. Yolo is an ethnic slur. #newrules 

4. If it's not on Instagram...it DIDN'T happen. #newrules

5. Paying taxes is hustling backwards. #newrules 

6. Drunk is the new sober. #newrules 

7. Twitter thugs will be sent to the Hunger Games. #newrules

8. Twerking is an Olympic sport. #newrules 

9. Park in handicap spots...they're always empty anyway. #newrules

10. No rules. #newrules 

11. Mondays are no longer a part of the work week. #newrules 

12. Screaming is the new whisper. #newrules

13. Credit score don't mean shit. #blackpeoplecelebrate #newrules 

14. R.Kelly's "Ignition (Remix)" = American National Anthem. #hotandfresh #outthekitchen #newrules

15. Bishop Don Magic Juan replaces the Pope. #newrules 

16. Posting bathroom selfies with your children present are punishable by law. #newrules

Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin & Derrick Hodge Team To Cover Radiohead

glasper-mcferrin-hodge-1-mic-1-take-lead

Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin and Derrick Hodge team to cover Radiohead's "Packt Like Sardines In A Crushd Tin Box" for Capitol's 1 Mic 1 Take performance series. The performance belongs to a series of takes Glasper delivered for the Capitol Records series, including a cover of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Stevie Wonder's "Golden Lady." The performance is anchored by a steady bass performance from Derrick Hodge, who stays close to the bottom as Taylor McFerrin peppers the track with intricate fills and other percussive feats that often belie the fact that he is beatboxing. Robert Glasper rounds out the set with a performance that is driven and warm as he weaves the melody around their foundation to the tune of stunning results; their performance takes Radiohead's buzzing electronic original to a point of elegance in transformation. Check Robert Glasper, Taylor McFerrin and Derrick Hodge performing their cover of Radiohead's "Packt Like Sardines In A Crushed Tin Box" below. Listen to Derrick Hodge's new single "Message of Hope" via The Revivalist.
