Daisies and sunflowers and lace and silk is not what typically comes to mind when one thinks of beat-clapping New York hip-hop, but Nitty Scott, MC flirts with her “Bohemian ways” in the latest video for her single “Flower Child” featuring Kendrick Lamar.

Fun fact: The video was funded through 151 of Nitty’s supporters who contributed to her ”Pardon My Bohemian Ways” Kickstarter campaign.

Quadron collaborates with Kendrick Lamar for “Better Off,” a single from the duo’s newest body of work, Avalanche. Coco O. croons effortlessly over Robin Hannibal‘s smooth R&B laced creation that we are sure will be in constant playback mode on many playlists (including ours, of course).

Avalanche is set for release June 4th.

Solange’s Feature In COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue x Collabs with Kendrick Lamar on “Looks Good With Trouble” Remix

complexsolangecover
Solange looks incredible in her feature in COMPLEX Magazine’s June/July 2013 issue. Wearing chic summer-ready outfits, she flaunts her smooth, shapely legs in some mean red pumps. Here are the gorgeous photos from the feature story along with quotes:


“I wanted to make all of the creative artistic decisions but I wasn’t the one paying for it. And they didn’t fully trust me to make them,” she says. “Every decision was a battle. It was exhausting. I wanted to be in a position where not only was the music fully my body of work, but everything thereafter was also my body of work. I knew that meant I had to leave and that I had to struggle.”

“I have a mother who never took no for an answer when it came to her creative pursuits,” Solange says. “She started a hair salon in her spare bedroom and four years later had 30 employees. I have a father who was the first black student at his junior high and high school and had to do a lot to get to that point. So it’s really in my bloodline when it comes to having an idea and making it happen.”


“When I’m home, I’m just straight mommin’ it,” Solange says of life in Brooklyn, which revolves around 8-year-old Juelz. “School runs, play dates, soccer games, etc. You have to constantly fight for that balance and now I kinda got it under control.” After a hectic few weeks on tour, she’s looking forward to leaving town with Juelz later today for a two-week vacation—a week in L.A. and a week in New Orleans, where she feels very, very at home. “I go to crazy bounce clubs,” she says. “I eat crazy po’ boys, drink daiquiris. I ride my bike a lot.”

{Video} Elli Ingram Remixes Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice”

elli ingram

British singer-songwriter, Elli Ingram, gives us a soulful take on Kendrick Lamar’s “Poetic Justice.” The track was originally sampled from Janet Jackson’s steamy chart-topper, “Any Time, Any Place.” However, Elli does a great job of blending both songs and making it one blazing track.
