Mayer Hawthorne


Sit back and enjoy the funky sounds of Mayer Hawthorne. He is highly influenced by old Detroit Motown. Mayer Hawthorne grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan, just outside of Detroit, and vividly remembers, as a child, driving with his father and tuning the car radio in to the rich soul and jazz history the region provided. “Most of the best music ever made came out of Detroit,” claims the singer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist, who counts Isaac Hayes, Leroy Hutson, Mike Terry, and Barry White among his influences, but draws the most inspiration from the music of Smokey Robinson, Curtis Mayfield, and the legendary songwriting and production trio of Lamont Dozier, Brian Holland, and Eddie Holland Jr. -Exerpt from

Art News


BOSTON - A street artist famous for his red, white and blue “Hope” posters of President Obama has been arrested on warrants accusing him of tagging property with graffiti, police said Saturday.

Shepard Fairey was arrested Friday night on his way to the Institute of Contemporary Art for a kickoff event for his first solo exhibition, called “Supply and Demand.”


Two warrants were issued for Fairey on Jan. 24 after police determined he’d tagged property in two locations with graffiti based on the Andre the Giant street art campaign from his early career, Officer James Kenneally said. One of the locations was the railroad trestle by the landmark Boston University bridge over the Charles River, police said.

J. Holiday reveals 'Round 2' album cover | In (Hot Weezy) Stores on March 10...

J. Holiday returns with his sophomore album "Round 2" on March 10. Check out the album cover!

Featuring production by StreetLove production/writing team members Big Reese (Mario, T.I., Andre 3000, Pink) and Jasper Cameron (Ciara, Tiffany Evans, Christina Aguilera) and collaborations with the likes of Cee-Lo and Rick Ross, Round 2 is poised to solidify Mr. Holiday's status as the commander of seductive street soul.

Madvillainy = Classic

In my eyes, Album of The Year goes to Madvillainy (Even Though It Dropped in 2004, lol). The combination Of California's Madlib, of 90's rap group The Lootpack with Wildchild. And also, Long Island's MF DOOM of the critically acclaimed 90's rap group KMD who were known for their Pro-Black song concepts.

Anyway, I think that the combination of MF DOOM's Off-Kilter rap style and Madlib's Melodic, jazz influenced beats are enough to give you an Eargasm. Your ears will fall victim to the simple complexity of the sounds produced on this album. I Suggest You give It a Listen.

Stax ISAAC HAYES reissues for 'Black Moses' and 'Juicy Fruit' on 2/24!

You already know Isaac Hayes was the voice of "Chef" on South Park. We hope you also know the rest...

Isaac Hayes’ epic 1971 album Black Moses, which captured the artist at the peak of his popularity, will be reissued on Stax Records on February 24, 2009. The release is a complete replication of the original Black Moses package, folding out into a cross-shaped image of the artist. The album was re-mastered from the original tapes. New liner notes are by Rob Bowman, the Grammy Award-winning Stax scholar and author of Soulsville U.S.A: The Story of Stax Records.

Also on February 24, Stax will reissue Hayes’ 1976 disco album, Juicy Fruit (Disco Freak), originally released on Hayes’ ABC Records-distributed Hot Buttered Soul label and recorded at his own Memphis studio with many of his long-time band members. This will be its first time on CD. Music historian Bill Dahl contributed liner notes to the reissue.

Hayes’ unexpected death on August 10, 2008 at the age of 65 robbed us of future soulful treasures, but we can rediscover R&B classics like Black Moses and overlooked gems like Juicy Fruit (Disco Freak) and groove anew on his extraordinary musical vision.
