Talib Kweli Joins Colours Of The Culture Crew Docuseries

Colours Of The Culture just completed the fourth episode (Tamahmgiso) of season 2 for their Youtube docu-series that goes behind the scenes of hip-hop. Talib Kweli, Shock G and Schoolly D have appearances in the latest episode filmed in Philadelphia. Kweli’s frequent collaborator Niko IS and producer Thanks Joey started the series two years ago. The unscripted look is a deliberate technique designed to capture the artists being vulnerable and spontaneous. In the current clip, Shock G proves that he is still a B-Boy, Schoolly D performs and Talib Kweli hangs out and enjoys the night. Dave Chappelle and Yasiin Bey appeared in a past episode that added to the Black Star reunion fever had by fans.

The informal setting of the video reflects the song’s calming effect as everyone sits on couches in the living room. The acoustic version of “A Storm On Summer’s Day” is available separate from the EP. 


Petite Noir Releases Visual Album La Maison Noir In Collaboration With Red Bull Music South Africa

Petit Noir and Red Bull Music South Africa have collaborated to release the La Maison Noir visual album. The four-part film chronicles Petit Noir’s life growing up in The Democratic Republic of the Congo. He is also releasing the album La Maison Noir. Petite Noir gave more details about the album in a press release: 

“The Congolese cosmogram represents a constant circular motion of the element that symbolizes rebirth. We all go through a rebirth every few years and this visual album is all about rebirth.” 
The film contains a lot of symbolism in the colors worn which represent different elements of the earth and the constant walking is there to mimic the endless journey of life.
