(Video) CAMO – “Pretty Little Woman”

hqdefault

Says CAMO about his latest video…

Pretty little woman is merely a work of art presented by the mind of the unique artist (Camo) in order to capture the minds of his peers and to let those who enjoy his sound and follow his music, enter the world of “Camo” for the moment. Within the lyrics, I presented the pretty woman as something I want, not have. Therefore, my message in the song and visual is the “lust I have for her and the sense that I need this pretty little woman to complete me.

While you’re here, check out his latest single “Camo Hood”, available now on iTunes.

(Video) Lighta Soundboy -“Mama Africa (Soundsystem)”

Picture_1

Says Lighta Soundboy on the release…

“Since we was on a tight budget with the EP, it just appeared logically to do it in Sudan during family visit. I’d be happy to implement a variety of other African cultures too though, as the song is basically to cheer and empower all Africans, the diaspora, and beyond. But this is what we got so far. And I don’t think that Sudan is generally over-represented out there in this context, especially considering the fact that it has been a crossroads of people since way back. That alone makes the video a statement of multiculturality. So we are glad to release these vibes, together with some visuals which not just entertain a little but also have a bit power to educate, after all. But to be honest though, for me its all about the song. In the end, I’m a musician, not an actor or director.”

Besides the pan-african theme of the chorus, the song also taps into other topics such as spiritual diversity, social injustice, media hype, etc. According to the artist, the references to Mama Africa Soundsystem in the title and in parts of the song verses are about respect on a more local level:

“Mama Africa Soundsytem is a ‘veteran sound,’ founded by my friends from the Gambia. We collaborated, in a climate of tough competition over here in the local Reggae scene of Hamburg, Germany, where we based at. That’s why I thought, I gotta give a little shout out.”

(Video) Meka Jackson – “Why God”

Why-God-Cover-Artwork

With the Biblical reference “Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven” as the basis and focal point, Meka Jackson explores the roots of racial oppression, war & terrorism in America to draw out possible solutions to these inhumanities as plagued by mankind. Why God begins to beg the question – God’s will or choice, Predestiny or karma? (as may pertain to bad things happening to good people) and with no where else to turn, Meka Jackson seeks direct answers from the most high in this cry out for help, mercy and compassion. To a plot twist; there are no answers, it does not make sense; but in essence this is a fair start in recognizing our accountability to ourselves as one human race with the power to eliminate these seeds of evil. One love conquers all & we are all infinite beings of one!
