I understand Sene

The rapper who presented you with
"ADayLateandADollarShort" now
presents you with his new LP entitled
Reality Bites. This album is collection
of philosphy on why life sucks and why
you still need to keep striving for excellence-
And check his new video "Workflow".

Check the message-
Through Carranceja’s a new-age twist on MTV Cribs meets VH1’s Pop-Up Video, the camera invites fans and supporters inside the crib of Brooklyn’s own Sene. Noisemaker Media presents a fresh way of perceiving the world, through capturing unique moments that exist briefly in reality, then disappear, never to be thought of again. From looking down at your feet in the shower, to a partially-eaten apple, you will never look at daily life activities the same again.

Sundays are for God and good Music-Discography Edition

Can you imagine an east coast version
of Blu(Godlee Barnes).
Well honestly there is no need because
there already is one.
Sene-
Sene is one of my favorite artist in the
game right now.
His old school feel, and smooth operator flow
makes him even more unique than
Blu.
The unfortunate thing about Sene is that 
he's been making albums since
'06 and still has no recognition.
No XXL review or nod from 
his fellow east coast rappers.
So I decided to give you his whole discography;
start to finish.
Check the Soul
"Anywhere But Here"-Password-jericko
Sene and Chief-"Garbage Pail Kids"

Cool Fridays

Its Friday once again, and again I got some good
music that you can slow down and cruise to.
Ever since Wiz dropped KushxOrangeJuice,
I been in a vibed out kind of mood.
So I decided to do what I always do,
Listen to my man Bob Marley.
Now Y'all in for a treat, 
A few weeks ago Questlove of the Roots
decided to drop a instrumental album inspired by
J Dilla.
Last night Philly's own Dice Raw decides
to drop an album where he goes over Quest's instrumentals
which took him a week to write.
So check out this Good Music!!!!
Just Vibe out with me....

Lupe Fiasco Freestyles For 10 Min In New York (Video)

So at Fillmore, Lupe goes on this unearthly freestyle tangent for 10 min's straight and just murder's it! This is why Lupe will forever be my favorite artist.  Check when he starts explaining his freestyle as a hunt (6:53 mark). Crazy.

Sundays are for God and good music

Today I bring you something alternative.
Kissey Asplund is a Funkadelick
singer from New York City.
 She is associated with Sene the rapper out of New York.
She appears on alot of his albums and mixtapes.
Kissey's music is very unique.
If you could imagine jazz, r&b, and electronica all rolled
into one then you definitely would be listening to
Kissey.
Her beautiful voice is like birds in the morning.
And her style is sort of like Lykke Li.
Check out her debut album
"Plethora".

A Novel Of Her Youth

Meet Lykke Li.  A young singer from Sweden that has been making quite a name for herself.   Aside from the fact that she's absolutely gorgeous (I love white women), her soft and soulful voice is undeniably euphonious.  She has achieved much stardom with her debut album called Youth Novels.  I've been listening to her alot lately and wanted everyone else to experience the musical therapy that is Lykke Li.  Enjoy!
