Hoodz In A Corner

Culture. Music. Fashion. Words.

The inventor of the mirror poisoned the human heart.

—Fernando Pessoa

There’s a fine line between a soap opera and a proper opera.

@SBTRKT kicking off the new year with a sexy teaser “R-U-N-A-W-A-Y” featuring @Jessie_Ware, TIC, and a throwback Sampha sample. Clocking barely over a minute, can’t wait to bump this deep one in full.

A blessed 2014 to each & every. Time to light up, zone out, & reflect. See you in a next era. Positive Energy Activates Constant Elevation. P.E.A.C.E.

Still smoke on these zoots supreme and now it’s not like it used to be.

ashriser went live a couple days ago on a visual release via buygorerecords for his new tune “Down”. The trademark graveled-rasp of Ash’s voice booms through, showcasing the vocal talent of this urban renaissance artist [who also happens to be a badman MC-DJ-Producer]. Man doubles up on the eye-candy with a segue into “Nobody Love Me”, as the singer transitions into easy vibe true-to-life rap, a quality well-known from the Long Beach musician. Representing for his Buygore signee, bossman Borgore makes an cameo on the outro. Big things for Ash Riser in 2014.
