Today’s Independent Pick comes by way of Brooklyn artist Liv who takes direct shots at Nicki Minaj, Kanye West and Kim Kardashian. Simply stating that real is best, the song is meant to empower women (mainly) to not settle for what they see on the screen as being sexy but to keep it more toward the natural side. Liv, we appreciate your honesty!
Love is in the air for the Brooklyn born Talib Kweli. His new song “Favela Love” which features Seu Jorge is nice and pleasant video at first but as the video plays on you see whats really happening here. A very nice looking girl takes the eye of Talib and they meet and hit it off. They spend the entire day together enjoying each others company which sounds good on the surface but there is a man in a hotel waiting on the girl to return which makes things slightly dramatic. Listen and watch as the story unfolds right here on streetkhemistry.com
Kanye West, as previously mentioned, is a on a serious “media campaign” right now. He is hitting every radio outlet available to communicate his frustrations with the fashion business, as well as his adidas deal, Yeezus tour and more. The latest is “The Streetz Morning Grind to talk to Rashan Ali”.
Courtesy of fan and Youtube user KizzyRoc, we get to see what went down at one of Lupe Fiasco’s recent shows where two fans appeared to be getting into an altercation. The altercation is not caught in this video but what does matter is seeing Lupe Fiasco keeping the peace. The peacemaker requested that both people shake hands and squash the beef.
