Always been a fan of Raphael Saadiq. My favorite album has got to be Instant Vintage. Then he dropped "The Way I See It" and it had that Motown sound to it, which blew me away. I can't wait for the new LP!

Growing up on Bay Area Hip Hop, your gonna have an RBL cd in your deck.
I'd have to say my favorite was Ruthless By Law. And still after all these years, Black C is still reppin for the Bay Area pioneers who set the lane for all others to do it out here. This video is from the latest album, 70's Baby, which got lots of play in my headphones because of the sample heavy production. Go check it out.
F it. I'm gonna take it back! Enjoy.
Gotta love the end of this track. Some might have missed it if they skipped to the next track. Why would you? The way they flipped it to that Minnie Ripperton sample was crazy!!
This one is for my mans Rob C.
This one reminds me of my High School days! Haa!! I remember hearing this on a compilation before it hit this album.

New beat with some visuals. And a story behind it.
The homie Andrew (www.coldtwelvemedia.com) sent me a text yesterday asking if i could sample a certain John Coltrane song. Well it just so happened I was sitting at the Mpc. Not only was I already in beat mode, but I had already flipped through a few records with no luck. So I hit up Youtube and peeped out the Coltrane song. After the beat was done I decided to flip through my footage I took while driving home from Woodland the other day. Combined to two. Heres the result.

Coldtwelvemedia.com. It was a good day full of filming, photographs, wheelchairs, breakdancing, cold ones and high-sodium mexican chips. Just like old times when I used to live in Woodstone- chillin on a Sunday.

Heres some flix I took from this past Sundays video shoot for Cash Dreeds, Basics. It was the perfect morning. Cold. Cloudy. Productive. But we couldnt have done it without help from a dope artist who blessed the train with an exclusive COLDTWELVERS burner. Shouts to the BEANAH.
