If y’all happen to be checking out UnPrisoned on Hulu starring Kerry Washington and Delroy Lindo, you may fall into a familiar jam once you hit episode 7 (Season 1). BeMyFiasco’s “Caramel”, produced by yours truly and Phonte!
In the nearly two years since Zo! and Tall Black Guy’s collaborative effort Abstractions was released, it has never left our rotation. The set was chock-full of jams from front to back and included features from some of our faves. Most of all, though, it was a solid collaborative effort from two of the best producers in the game right now. Who could ask for anything more? Well, you don’t have to because the duo is giving it to you anyway with a surprise deluxe edition of the album. (Read full article)
I definitely wasn’t expecting to wake up this morning and watch one of my favorite bands of all-time, The Roots, playing jams that Phonte and I wrote …but here we are. They ran “That Ain’t Right” and “Vicki, Is the Water Warm Enough” in this 5-song medley of Sherman’s Showcase tunes. Y’all enjoy!
If you happened to hear a familiar jam on Season 7: Episode 2 of Queen Sugar last week, you may have been hearing “Say How You Feel” (feat. Phonte & Carlitta Durand) (from SunStorm) make its television debut! Yes, yes!!
