Political Rap: Sly w/Dank Studios vs. King Solomon

In 2008, Rap artist King Solomon banged out his track from his Big Picture record entitled Ron Paul 2008. With Miles Davis/Dizzie style horns and some early Stevie Moog bass pumpin', King Solomon rips nearly all politicians a new one, saying it exactly the way it is in his mind.



Fast forward to 2012 and we have another rapper known as Sly and his track for Ron Paul 2012. Sly talks a little more issues based substance and no slamming the other candidates.

Juliette Lewis -Terra Incognita


Some supposed music pundits are hard on Juliette Lewis, but I think she deserves credit. She really fucking rocks. There is authenticity and genuine emotions of love and rage and everything in between when she performs. Her videos are pretty badass too.

Rest In Peace Etta James

Very sad to have to say, Rest in Peace Etta James. She was one of the greatest and most under rated soul singers, ever.

Etta James, in her own words: "I wanted to be rare, I wanted to be noticed, I wanted to be exotic as a Cotton Club chorus girl, and I wanted to be obvious as the most flamboyant hooker on the street. I just wanted to be."

Etta James - I'd Rather Go Blind

Donny Hathaway - I Love You More Than You'll Ever Know

Donny Edward Hathaway (October 1, 1945 -- January 13, 1979) was one of the most influential American soul musicians in the history of modern music. His music lives on.



Hathaway contracted with Atlantic Records in 1969 and with his first single for the Atco label, "The Ghetto, Part I" in early 1970, Rolling Stone magazine "marked him as a major new force in soul music."His collaborations with Roberta Flack scored high on the charts and won him the Grammy Award for Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the duet, "Where Is the Love" in 1973. Six years later, his body was found outside the luxury hotel Essex House in New York City; his death was ruled a suicide.
