Only One

Lorine chia is definitely embracing her Queenhood in her contemporary upbeat reggae blues track “Only One”. Emphasizing the loneliness that has came over time through the winter months forcing her to look toward her own solitude for some time to  introspect the entire situation. It is hard to dwell on the former memories and impact your significant other brought  to your life. Continually reminiscing and ruminating indefinitely freezes you in a season full of barren branches and/or life growth. For you cannot move on holding onto old what if’s, and maybe’s. With seasons changing Lorine reminds listeners to hold on to your proper Queenhood or Kingship by strategizing and internally allow the current change to grow you and not wither your status. Remember you hold your status in life and  dictate future. Make sure you stream the video below as Ms. Lorraine Chia brings us to a place of germination….Appreciate the Art| Admire the Craft

SABA

In the very beginning of the stellar music video, ‘Time Zone,’ Saba puts you in a place of questioning complacency and staying in your comfort zone. Saba, is a very thought provoking artist, reminding us that seeing the same is never okay in the process of evolving into yourself. Visually him and his team create, in your current timezone, a visual spark to make you think. “17 living out a dream while these niggas want to sleep…” Upon making movements toward your place of completion of your vision, you will have the places in your current lifestyle that will have to either stay behind or evolve with your change. Wisdom comes from the minds of the old but the young are also holders of these key to life as well. Saba wants himself and those able to connect with him, to be able to expand the places of their minds that they normally do not tap into. “Are you down?” Saba want you to get out of your comfort zone and expand your reality and remember always….

From Germany with Love.

With bringing in the New Year of 2017, Da Bassment Blog is spotlighting Germany’s very own, Ace Tee. Ace Tee brings us back into the 1990’s urban swag with inspiration from the hit girl groups, TLC and XSCAPE. “Bist tu Down” translated into English is “Are You Down?” . Of course you will be after embracing the art. For the video is spoken in the Germanic language. Visually you can see the heart of New York through graffiti work. Wearing the aesthic urban clothing of the 90’s era, Ace Tee and those she connects with, can all unargumentally be seen dancing and invoking the times that we have already left behind, but still are continually inspired by. It is an impeccable example of music bridging the gap between seas, time, and language barriers.
No doubt that Hip-Hop has changed our world. Leaving behind the negated world of Censorship Hip hop has been an outlet for those otherwise not able to express the visions, issues, and continuing changes of the world. From the early 1970’s into contemporary times you can see the formulation of a new wave for artist in the African American community to unleash changes in the culture of America as well as Globally. From music, clothing, visual mediums, and language, early hip hop birthed the way for African Americans to be front and center stage in impacting not only those in America but the others around the World. Give Ace Tee a listening ear….

Did you know Africa Looked like this?

Today’s post comes from Nigeria’s superstar artist Davido as he linked up with flourishing 19 year old South African rapper Nasty C on “Coolest Kid In Africa” a trap-influenced track doused with culture. The two artist feed off each others energy, igniting a burst of energy to the listeners that resonates long after the song is over. The representation of the thriving culture in Africa is necessary for American’s to see, being blinded by media for years with false representation of the motherland. Forced to believe through saturated imagery that Africa was a place of poverty and famine, a desolate land that was uninhabitable. Now through the Internet we are able to see how rich the land is and how similar the people are to our culture. Understanding that we are in separate locations but our spirits are the same. Make sure you check out Davido video below and as always…
