Souls of Mischief – There Is Only Now feat Snoop Dogg

Check out the latest video from Souls of Mischief featuring Snoop Dogg, the first single from their upcoming album produced entirely by Adrian Younge.

From Linear Labs,

The sixth album from legendary hip-hop group Souls of Mischief, There Is Only Now, is a unique cinematic 90s crime tale of love, loss, and revenge. A conceptual collaboration with producer Adrian Younge and the first release on his freshly launched Linear Labs Records label, There Is Only Now gets its inspiration from a near fatal incident involving group members A-Plus, Opio, Tajai, and Phesto early in their careers. Set in 1994, There Is Only Now serves as a bookend to two decades of music since the release of their seminal debut album, ?93 Til Infinity.
Souls of Mischief and Adrian Younge have created a hip-hop album like no other. The result of a special moment for all involved, There Is Only Now proves that after two decades in the rap game hip-hop?s Fab Four remains committed to the expansion of their legacy as hip-hop innovators and pioneers

Atmosphere – Camera Thief

Check out their latest single, titled “Camera Thief” from the group’s eighth studio album, Southsiders. The album was recorded in south Minneapolis and Oakland and is a shout-out to their native neighborhood. While it is a celebration of Atmosphere‘s fortitude, it is also deeply introspective and “a very detailed look at my life,” says Slug. With Southsiders, the group’s unique sound featuring vibrant, live instrumentations and Slug’s often-weighty subject matter, continue to push the boundaries of what indie rap can mean.

Black Business : Modern Day Yakuza

Maiham Media recently released their controversial new short, titled Black Business: Modern Day Yakuza. Beautifully shot on location, the viewers are instantly transported to the dark streets of Japan where we get an intimate look into the Yakuza.

From Maiham Media:

Japan is famous for many things, such as technology, sushi, temples, geisha and amazing customer service. One side of Japan not often seen but living in plain sight are the people conducting in “Black Business”, the Yakuza. They’re not petty criminals confined to the streets, they’re international business men. Using knowledge, money, powers of persuasions and their influence in the government to help secure them lucrative international black business deals.

To the everyday citizen they serve as no threat, often polite and well spoken but if you are one to do business with them; Make no mistake they’re ruthless, calculated people that will not hesitate to better their position at your expense.

Forgot what you think you know, Japan is not all smiles and friendly customer service…
