Non-Stop Bangin' Like A Dilla Instrumental

Obviously I didn't let my hospital stop me from making up some finished artwork for my peoples. So, with an IV stuck in my arm and my Wacom by my side, I managed to cook up a little something during my stay. In order words, I Dilla'd the situation to the best of my abilities. Why "Dilla'd"? Because even while he was facing death's door, J Dilla still managed to craft amazing music in his hospital room.
This Saturday, IV is teaming up with to bring you the first in what hopes to be a series of hip-hop showcases. The line-up is still a mystery to the outside world but expect the venue to be banging full of great music and creativity. The location is at the Greater Flint Arts Council and all it takes is $5 to get in. And who knows, if I feel well enough I might try to pull off some live art again.
In celebration of their impending destination to SXSW, BLAT! Pack members Red Pill and JYoung The General craft this Hir-O produced track dedicated to Austin F'n Texas. Right now, the whole BLAT! gang should be well on their way to TX so if you're attending SXSW make sure to find out where they're performing because you won't be disappointed. Other Michigan artists that are expected to perform at various SXSW shows include Cold Men Young, Jon Connor, Danny Brown, Invincible, OneBeLo, and Ro Spit.

Musiq Soulchild - Feel The Real

Having been working with R&B artist Musiq Soulchild for almost two years now on his side projects (The Husel/Pwonda Love, and his top secret animation project), I was given the task to do the art and design for his eight studio album Feel The Real. The direction he wanted to go in for the album was dealing with the idea of emojis and wanted specific ones designed for each of the 24 songs on the double disc album. He also wanted the look of the design to feel like a text message but also still incorporated the denim feel continuing from his previous album Life On Earth. So here's a look at the design of the album booklet along with the 24 emojis as well.

Feel The Real is available on iTunes and in Best Buy and Target now!
