Here’s the first of a series of posts I’m just going to run off quick in the next couple of hours. I wish I could’ve gotten to these things earlier, but what can you do.
The Kidz got a new video, this time from their LRG-sponsored Le Tour de Loisirs Professionelle mixtape. Just to note, the tape is no longer free, but you can grab it on iTunes under its English name, The Professional Leisure Tour. The video consists of Naledge waking up at your girl’s place as she makes him breakfast. As you ponder on that for a moment, let me just say that Naledge and Double-0 have really been stepping their game up with every new release in the past 3 to 5 months. If you’re feeling this, go pick up their latest album Land Of Make Believe, which is in stores now.
This is now at least a few days late but it still deserves a post. Le Tour De Loisirs Professionelle (i.e. The Professional Leisure Tour), is the latest free EP (i.e. mixtape) from the Kidz. Naledge and Double-0 needed a buzz-builder for their upcoming album Land Of Make Believe, and what better way to do just that than to drop some free music? I must admit that I frequently overlook these guys seeing as I’m not that big on the whole “hipster-hop” sub-genre with the exception of The Cool Kids. Although the inner nerd in me is irritated by the improper French usage (it should be “Professionels”…just saying), this tape seems like it’s worth a listen.
The producer, Analogic, is dropping an album later this year on Soulspazm records and this is the first leak from the mixtape before the album.The song is pretty simple with just two verses and no real chorus. Naledge and A. Pinks do well on their verses and the beat Analogic cooks up is pretty dope. I haven’t heard a lot about him to date, but I certainly like his pick of artists for the first single.
I am really loving almost all of the projects Mick Boogie is involved with these days. With 1988, Mick Boogie is remixing one of the top albums of the year 20 years later with today’s artists. I love the artist he chose, the concept and the this first song with Naledge of Kidz in the Hall. Click the break to see video explaining the whole project and a link to a site with the album link.
