New Video - Luv 'n' Dedication (Live)

|
My brother Nye sent me this beat sometime ago and I immediately thought this was one of the illest beats I'd heard in a while. I've been so busy writing for other projects that I never got to write something proper to this...As I'm always looking for ways to spruce up a set or a song or whatever, I went digging for beats one day prepping for a show and tried spitting the "Luv 'n' Dedication" verses over this. Right away, it made the song feel brand new. The verses kind of skip over the beat like a rock on a pond, or maybe more accurately, concrete.

This song is actually a mash up of "LnD" and another older song called "The Lead"...It's basically two of my favorite verses to spit over a really funky beat. The drums just sink into this weird groove. It feels so boom bap, but it's deceptively in a weird time. I'd still like to write another song to this sometime, and I think that'll be a really special day...but I digress.

I hope you dig the performance here from the Artist Quarter for the 2012 Amplified Life Showcase with Toki Wright, Rodrigo Sanchez Chavarria and more. It was a good night. Enjoy!
