Moufy Interview and Exclusive Short

Here is the interview I did with Moufy, as you may have read on his facebook page. Since this is the first blog on Moufy, I'm not gonna write anything, I'll just let it speak for itself.  Moufy has an interesting story and he begins rapping at the 2:50 mark.

Rad Anthem

While this post isn't in line with what we usual post on here, this video is way too amazing to pass up. And make sure to watch through the end. A little surprise shows up around the 2:15 mark.

G.O.O.D. Fridays

Every Friday from now until Christmas, Kanye will be releasing a new song from the G.O.O.D. music crew (Kanye, Big Sean, KiD CuDi, Jay-Z). I'm a bit behind so here's the last 3 G.O.O.D. music tracks: Monster, a posse cut with Rick Ross, Jay-Z and Nicki Minaj, Devil in a New Dress, and a remix to Power with Jay and Swizz Beatz. All of this is leading up to Kanye's eventual release of his next album, Dark Twisted Fantasy, and 5-track EP with Jay-Z, Watch the Throne.

Bluestone's track of the Day: Down South Blues

Down South Blues has a catchy slide lead.  The main riff is played throughout most of the song and some soloing is mixed in.  What I like about this one is that it's a a lonely blues; "I woke up this mornin' and I found my baby gone," but it's hopeful, as well; "I'm goin' down South child, the weather here's too cold."  Things are gonna get better.  I can listen to this one when I just want music, when I'm crying, or when I'm drinking.  It's got every different vibe to it, and it sounds good too.  Listen to it!

Sonny Terry and Brownie Mcghee

Sonny Terry and Brownie Mcghee, most would say, play the best country blues.  I'm not a big country fan, but some days a two man band, a shot of blues, a harmonica and a guitar... it's just what you need.  Here they are, plain and simple, sitting and playing the blues. Easy Rider....
