Asher Roth presents "Pull It" New Vid!!!!

The final chapter in Asher's RetroHash journey (following "Parties At The Disco" and "Last Of The Flohicans") deals with the one emotion that everyone experiences: heartbreak.
"The all consuming, everlasting feeling of a broken heart. Is there anything worse? The emptiness. The loneliness. The hands-on demonstration that defines 'gut wrenching.' Naturally, I started by fighting back. I cried. Multiple times. I missed everything about her. I wanted it to 'go back to the way it use to be.' I could hardly sleep. My head had taken over. Scouring scenarios and saying 'If I had only done this...' or 'if she had only done that...' It was no use. I was holding onto something that no longer existed. I had to let go.
Love may be the only thing that can transform us. It's important to allow yourself to feel the pain that comes with it. It hurts. So much. But it's better than going through your life feeling nothing at all. Embrace it. Explore it. This pain will ultimately transform you and with strength and support it will help you grow to become the person you were meant to be."
This RetroHash is a really dope project and has some really unique viewpoints!!! Peep the story up top!!!

Shad, one Canada's best-kept-secrets, comes through with a visual interpretation for "Progress (Part 1: American Pie, Part 2: The Future is Here)", one of the stand-outs off his Flying Colours LP.
Says director Justin Broadbent:
"The death of music is similar to the death of visual art. The online, numb, browsing experience has (naturally) started to effect the current state of art. We’ve become a Tumblr’d culture, over Google'd, educated and bored in 4 seconds or shorter. I made a non-music video for Shad’s “Progress”. It’s a website. It’s a comment on the state of art and also maybe the only video that could attach to such an intensely accurate and poignant song for our generation. It is like the movie credits to now. Tumblr on."

Read DC's thoughts and check out the S&G Beatz-produced "Satan Radio (66.6 FM)" below.
"I often wonder what comes first the chicken or the egg... Does radio simply play what the general public likes or does the radio bang us over the head again and again and again with the music until we start to like it. Back in the 80's & 90's urban radio had balance in its substance and sound. Today everything sounds the same for the most part and the majority of the music's themes seem to be self destructive."

Well$ presents "Black Swan" New Vid!!!!

Well$ Week continues with the Charlotte emcee releasing a new video for "Black Swan." Over Shlohmo's remix of Jermih's "F*ck You All The Time,"  Well$ takes it to Foxy Gentlemen's Club in Brooklyn to share a story of a young stripper.
"It's about looking at things in a different way. People tend to look at a situation like a girl stripping and immediately assume it's her father's fault. It's not always what it seems, life's not always what it seems. We had the concept prior to me hearing the beat. And then when I heard the beat, I just started freestyling to it and the message started coming out. It's a cool oxymoron, because the chorus says 'f-ck you all the time' and I'm trying to convey a message that's not conducive to that part." [Billboard]

I have been really impressed by dude!! Peep the story up top!!!!
