And party, and bullshit, and party and ... Welcome back, folks. It's Friday afternoon and I've got a full three days of bullshittin' on my schedule, so let's make this quick — the weekend is calling my name. Above we've got the new single from local R&B chanteuse Star Murphy, "U Send Me Swinging," featuring the main man with the master plan, Rio. Ya, I know it's not hip-hop in the strictest sense, but you all know how much I love smooth R&B, and this song is a quiet storm with hail made of awesome. Also, it's racked up over 10,000 views since it went up on Wednesday, which is, y'know, an absurd number of views for an unsigned local artist. Seriously boss.
You guys know that DJ Jazzy Jeff is going to be in town on Sunday night right? You should. Also Call It Dope! is at B.B. King's tonight, and Saturday has The Boom Bap at The 5 Spot, the Soundtrack Beat Battle over at Limelight and the Urban Music Challenge over at The Rutledge. Basically, you have no excuse for not doing something awesome this weekend. But also, don't drink and drive, be safe, watch out for cops and all that bullshit. Now it's time to goof off and watch Jazzy Jeff videos.
