Absolutely stunning photography by kevinruss
I like to say that creative people are confident in only one thing: their own doubt. I think there’s a huge lack of self-confidence in a creative person because, by nature, the definition of a creative person is someone who is trying to make something new. They know, if they are professional creatives, that the likelihood of doing that—making something new and significant—is hugely unlikely, so they build within that city of doubt. From doubt, they get to iterate and work extremely hard, hoping to find something new; it’s all about hope.
Another great live performance by Snarky Puppy. Absolutely love that voice!
The power and build up in this song is absolutely amazing. Goose bumps!
Madlib & J Dilla in Brazil, 2005. Photo by B+
"The photos B+ captured of Dilla have become the some of the most definitive images of the producer. In another, he got Madlib & Dilla together on a short trip to Brazil in 2005. We planned to get pictures for Donuts, but Dilla’s unstable health during that time caused him to cut the trip short.” - Jeff Jank / Stones Throw
And this is even more impressing. The song is brilliant already. But seeing it performed all live, is mesmerising.
This guy is intense! Goose bumps when he kicks off E=MC2! Speaking of a J Dilla Tribute!
This song made my day. The launch website is pretty genuis too. No rims, half dressed women or big cars, just real people dancing to the beat.
I’ve never been a huge cartoon fan, but this one made me laugh.
Q Tip never stops surprising…
