How dope are these visuals!? There is so much to look at in this video! Laura Mvula’s message to listeners is apparent very early in the song. “I will never be what you want and that’s alright. Coz my skin ain’t light, and my body ain’t tight, and that’s alright.” How powerful is that? Reminiscent of the talented Janelle Monaé, Laura continues to define her position as a black woman in the music business.

He performed live jazzy versions of his two most popular songs off GKMC. I love hearing rappers with live instruments. I really posted this just for the Sax player – dude kills it.

The big homie, Project Pat sat down with the guys from Fader after his show in New York to talk about the two projects he has coming (Mista Don’t Play 2 & Cheese and Dope 2).
According to him, the secret of his youthful appearance is a very basic and oft-overlooked essential of tour life called self-restraint. This seems unlikely if not veritably un-possible when your brother and tourmate is king of the turn-up, Juicy J, but Pat has managed to stick around this long and make more great music while he’s done it. Sitting down with us after his recent NYC show, he gave us some insight into the two projects he has coming (one of which is the highly anticipated Mista Don’t Play 2), what he does in the rare instances that he gets back to Memphis and how his ultimate goal is just to please the people.
