VIDEO: Apollo Brown featuring Quelle Chris, Ras Kass, yU, Has-Lo & Cavalier’s “Cellophane Cypher”

As a candy bar once said, two great things can definitely taste great together, but what happens if it pertains to rappers and it’s a combination of three rappers? How about four? Now let’s make it five, could you handle it? You have to, as Apollo Brown has given a “Cellophane Cypher”, where he wheels up Ras Kass, yU, Cavalier, Quelle Chris, and Has-Lo for an intense song for all senses.

VIDEO: Quelle Chris featuring Cavalier’s “Old Friend”

WARNING: The following video begins with the image of a banana in dirt. You may now proceed.

Quelle Chris continues to make music that goes into the mind and never comes out, a good think when you’re making music that can be conscious and becomes a part of the conscience. He did so with Cavalier with the song “Old Friend”, which now has been turned into a video shot by Mu Gadu in Uganda for his short film, Billion Dollar Question, which uses Chris’ “Old Friend” as the backdrop. The song is from Quelle Chris’ Mello Music Group album, N****s Is Men.

VIDEO: Quelle Chris featuring Cavalier’s “Addiction Cycles”

From the N****s Is Men album on Mello Music Group comes the Quelle Chris/Cavalier collaboration presented in visual form, called “Addiction Cycles”. This one was wonderfully directed by Mario “Kalif” Butterfield, who I hope will make much more work (music videos or otherwise) in the future.

VIDEO: Quelle Chris featuring Tanya Morgan, Fresh Daily & Cavalier’s “Greene Eyes”

With found imagery in the back ground that looks a bit like Tom Vu with yachts and mansions, Queelle Chris has come up with a nice one again with “Greene Eyes”, with chinned assistance from Tanya Morgan, Fresh Daily, and Cavalier. It is taken from Chris’ street album, N****s Is Men on Mello Music Group.

VIDEO: Cavalier’s “Get Use To It”

When you create a video with a pig head driving a car, I think it would be wise to pay attention to discover why. Also: why the vision and the music it promotes is so damn funky. This is what Cavalier has done for his latest video, “Get Used To It”, and you should.

The song is from his New Aeon single, which you may check out below via Bandcamp (or this link if the player is not present.)

VIDEO: Quelle Chris featuring Cavalier’s “We Eat It”

“Take a Luther Campbell sample and make it better” may not be the exact words of Paul McCartney in his 1968 song “Hey Jude”, but it is what Quelle Chris and Cavalier have done in their new track, “We Eat It”, from his forthcoming album 2Dirt4TV Ep. 2: N****s Is Men. The video is quite good too, directors should learn a thing or two with this one.

FREE DOWNLOAD: Willie Green’s “Days Of Future Past” (street album)

Willie Green
“Breathe deep…”

No, this is not a reference to The Moody Blues album, but Days of Future Past is a brand new product from Willie Green, and this one is packed with some nice tracks and beat excursions, a total of 38 songs in total. Whether it’s a view of tracks featuring other rappers or explorations of his beat genius, this is one that serves as a decent street or beat album, but also as a “resume tape” of sorts, including a few gems you might be familiar with, including the great “Diary Of A Dreamer” featuring PremRock.

It’s free for the taking, so stream and listen if you like, and if you really like, download it in the format of your choice.
