7 Questions: Blue + The Tao of Pimpin’

blue_taiko
  

These days, being different is a trend. People go out of their way (see: try too hard) to be “unique.” Others don’t have to try. They’re happy being themselves and that’s as unique as it gets. As Katt Williams would say, they’re in tune with their star player.

Blue is one of those people. Unapologetically honest. Unapologetically herself. Relentlessly artistic. Coming off of her last album, a five act musical entitled “Breakage: A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Babylon, The Musical” (which can be found at www.bluefolktronica.com), Blue decided to take on a new challenge: Become a published author. Her first literary offering, “The Tao of Pimpin’,” answers the question, “What if Laozi and Iceberg Slim got together and wrote a book?” Both hilarious and insightful, “The Tao of Pimpin’” is one of those reads you’ll have a hard time putting down. WOHM caught up with Blue to discuss the new book, music, artistic freedom, and more. Here’s what she had to say.

Mostafa x Deep Lemon – Our Dream [Video]

Mostafa
  

Underground rap artist Mostafa shines in his latest release, Our Dream, a collab with producer Deep Lemon, who creates a dope soundscape for the clever Washingtonian rapper. This is the first single off of their upcoming album, Calendar Year Vol. II. The album is said to include features from Gift Of Gab, Graves 33, Landon Wordswell, and Araless, and will be available October 10th at Mostafa.Bandcamp.com

While I really like raw music, I think this could have benefited from sharper visuals and a cleaner mix. Still a good listen, especially for lyrical value.
