RE:GENERATION : MARK RONSON FEAT. MRS BADU & YASIIN BEY- A LA MODELISTE (MUSIC VIDEO) by Noggy

Okay this is the sh* Noggy’s talking about!!

Hyuandai Veloster presents the RE:GENENRATION project. The project follows DJ Premier, Mark Ronson, Skrillex, Pretty Lights and The Crystal Method as they remix, recreate and re-imagine five traditional styles of music. From the classical perfection of the Berklee Symphony Orchestra to the bayou jams of New Orleans jazz, the five distinctive DJs collaborate with some of today’s biggest musicians to discover how our musical past is influencing the future.

First up one of my favorites … Mark Ronson. It’s obvious he took his task very seriously cause he is hitting us up with supreme quality music. In collaboriaton with Erykah Badu, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Trombone Shorty and The Dap Kings he brings us “A la Modeliste”, a comtemperary blues track that will have clapping your hands and stomping your feet in no time.

Needless to say I am looking forward to more visuals of the RE:GENERATION project.



RBMA LECTURE: ERYKAH BADU (Madrid 2011) by Noggy

Erykah Badu needs little introduction. Her seminal works like ‘Baduizm’ and the ‘New AmErykah’ series have successively upped the ante in terms of what can be done within the soul spectrum. Erykah fuses cosmic b-girl bravado with the forward-thinking sounds of producers like the Soulquarians, Madlib, and more recently, Academy grad Flying Lotus, to create a sonically varied body of work – selling millions of albums in the process. She also heads up her own record label, Control FreaQ, and has even been caught on the ones and twos recently, under her moniker DJ Lo Down Loretta Brown. Watch her tell the story to Eothen ‘Egon’ Alapatt at the Red Bull Music Academy 2011 in Madrid.

Erykah Badu by Zigbone

When it comes to timing I would have to say that Mrs Badu is on point. Cause just when she kinda slipped my mind … she hits me up with a brand new video for  “Out of My Mind just in time(part 2) taken from New Amerykah Part Two.

Most interesting detail about this video is that it was directed by Georgia Anne Muldrow

P.S. if you missed out of my mind just in time part 1

After seeing this video I decided that Mrs Badu is one of the coolest chicks on tha Planet. This is not the official music video but we now have proof that Mrs Badu looks fly on every occasion. Erykah serenades a studio audience (including a jetlagged Jay Electronica and Supanova) with a rendition of, “Fall in Love (Your Funeral),” off New Amerykah Part Two … enjoy.

At the time this post is being written … I’m suffering a lack of caffiene, the sun is barely up and even though my eyes look like there open…they are not really open yet.  This is all caused by the fact that when Badu’s name is mentioned my “blogger” brainpart starts working immediatly and the part that needs breakfast immediatly shuts down. That was untill a few minutes ago atleast….

Because while I’m listening to this very Erykah Badu inspired HipHop mixtape … my, now, not so sleepy head is nodding away and I have no need for the caffiene I lacked just a few minutes ago. Let’s just say the unexpected dope flow woke me up.

So if you are in the mood for some cool bar spitting over the ever soulfull Erykah Badu tunes …feast your ears on this!!

As I was trying to find a way to embed the Erykah Badu live performance at The Fix available on Vtech and was getting frustrated because for some reason those embed codes never really work…I found something just as good.

Yep… Erykah Badu is joined by Rick Ross for the remix of “Window Seat” and “Turn Me Away (Get MuNNY).”  The video is directed by Control Freaq x Creative Control and produced by Triggerhappy NYC.

MRS ERYKAH BADU TWEETS ON WINDOW SEAT VIDEO!! by Noggy

Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: ,

Yes Mrs Fatbellybella took it there and to think that I thought that after the CD dropped (every Badu fan in Europe including me is already the proud owner of Return of the Ankh) the buzz would wind down.

But this is Mrs Badu and I should’ve known…the buzz never stops. It’s not just the blogs and gossip columns but even Twitter is blowin up because of all the Badu fan tweets. Luckily for us pinboardblog took the time to gather the most important tweets…Badu’s tweets on the window seat video. Take it from me..you will not believe what you are about to read. But since I already read them…three words…Badu is Fierce. Enjoy!!



ERYKAH BADU – WINDOW SEAT (OFFICIAL VIDEO) by Noggy

If you haven’t seen this video yet….please watch it first than read what I’ve got to say about it.

I have seen this video numerous times but I cannot stop watching it. Apart from the obvious there are so many hidden messages.

At the very beginning of the video there is a reference to Matt and Kim who taped their video for the track lessons learned running around New York city naked. Another clip that was used as a reference is the infamous Zapruder film which captured the Kennedy assasination. You will notice Erykah’s video has the same grainy quality and at the end she is also shot in the head by an unidentifiable shooter…

Then right before the track starts to play there is a soundclip which turns out to be the audio commentary very short before the John F. Kennedy assassination in 1963. At the start of the video Badu exits a car and walks the JFK Assassination Tour route at Dealey Plaza in [Erykah’s hometown] Dallas, Texas, stripping off her clothes as she goes until she walks fully naked – surrounded by tourists – with the word EVOLVING written across her shoulder blades.

And just when you think it can’t get any deeper than that… she is shot in the head and the words Groupthink flow out right above her lifeless body. Than the voiceover sets in and Badu leaves us with the following message….

They play it safe. Are quick to assassinate what they do not understand. They move in packs ingesting more and more fear with every act of hate on one another.They feel most comfortable in groups, less guilt to swallow.They are US! This is what we have become, afraid to respect the individual. A single person within a circumstance can move one to change, to love ourself, to EVOLVE.

I don’t know what you think about all of this….but I only have two words left…FREAKIN GENIUS!!

Okay I found another Erykah Badu “leak “on the net. But I was kinda reluctant to post it(even if it is for stream only) because I don’t know if it’s Erykah Badu approved. But the thing is the track is kinda dope and it just seems so unfair to be in the know and not to share knowledge that sounds this cool.

So if in a few days you will not be able to stream this anymore I apologize in advance. But for now…Enjoy!!…and before I forget…whatever you do on the 30th of March please do go out and buy Erykah Badu – New Amerykah Part Two (Return Of The Ankh). The last message does not apply to Erykah Badu fans in Holland…cause the ones I do know of already bought it and yes….it’s slamming!! don’t believe me for a limited time you can listen to the Return of The Ank in full when you click here
