Tough Bond Official Trailer.
Watch the extended trailer for Tough Bond, the heavy new documentary featuring young people from the streets of Nairobi hooked on sniffing glue to survive. The film, made by Village Beat (you may remember them from The Very Best‘s recent music videos), will premiere at The Berlin International Film Festival on February 13. Our dudes The Very Best and Seye built the original soundtrack to this difficult, yet beautifully orchestrated peek into an urgent issue. We’re anticipating taking a closer look at the feature length.
Great arrangement & performance…some serious soulfull sh#$%!!!

Freddie Gibbs & Madlib, feat. BJ the Chicago Kid – “Shame” (official video).

12″ EP now shipping via Stones Throw: Freddie Gibbs & Madlib – Shame EP
Freddie Gibbs & Madlib’s Shame EP follows where Thuggin’ left off: with Gibbs effectively spooling street stories onto the Beat Konducta’s wax. “Shame” featuring singer B.J. The Chicago Kid, is Gibbs’ honest appraisal of a one night stand; “Terrorist” is all killer, no filler – a short, terrifying rap offset by a cheeky fusion jazz sample. The Shame EP also contains vocals, instrumentals and two bonus beats.
The duo’s as-of-yet untitled album is planned for release in the third quarter 2012.
