I don't feel like speaking English today!!
Selda Bağcan - Yaz Gazeteci Yaz
"Listening to 70's Turkish music in the morning always makes me feel like a black market arms dealer. No better way to start my day. I particularly enjoy the super sultry voice of Selda Bagcan. Something about her records makes me want to move to Europe and open a bakery. I'd sell cheesecake. Turns out she was always being hassled by the military and government of communist-era Turkey. Guess that's what happens when you join the revolution and start making diss records about the government. If I had to be jailed a couple times for making records as good as Selda's...I'd think about it."
Jacques Dutronc - Hippie Hippie Hourrah
"I first heard this record on Diplo's Chasing the Dragon mixtape and since he hadn't released a playlist at the time I couldn't find the record. Thanks to Shazam on the Blackertheberry for sniffing this one out! Wish I had stuck with french in high school. Then I might know what this guy is talking about. But even without comprehending the lyrics it's almost impossible not to feel the intensity of the performance. Croissants for all!"
(And for those of you who don't like subtitles):
Wiz Khalifa - Black and Yellow
"I was originally directed to this record because of the production. I was told that it sounds like something I might have come up with. I can hear that. The record was produced by Stargate, the Norwegian super-production duo responsible for some of the biggest pop hits of the past few years from artists like Ne-Yo, Rihanna and Beyonce. Turning their attention to Philly's Wiz Khalifa they deliver a straightforward hit that you can't really find any fault in. Those guys and their Nordic keyboard magic!! Oh, and I like the video too."
B.O.B. - F*ck the Money Remix (feat. Wiz Khalifa
"OK so while we've got Wiz Khalifa on deck might as well share this remix of B.O.B.'s "F*ck the Money" off his previously released May 25th mixtape. You'll immediately notice that Kayne laced the track and both rappers did a damn good job. This would have been pretty cool for one of Ye's Good Fridays records. "
