Roll and Coasters: Grass Ain't Greener

R&Cs: Grass Ain’t Greener

Here are some quick thoughts about this week’s roundup. The Florida Georgia Line video treatment for “May We All” could have easily been expanded to a short film. It’s that good! Just as good: the visuals for the excellent DJ Shadow and RTJ collaboration. Lastly, I look forward to a near future where (almost all) African videos are filmed on the mother continent. This is no knock on those that share this sentiment. But I believe costs for a great video on our soil have gone down to reasonable levels. The requisite skill set, personel, props and locales are available in abundance. And the proof is in the pudding: 2Baba’s, Cassper Nyovest’s and Falz’s latest are just but a few examples.

I wrote as kid. (I'd die if you'd ever get your hands on those poems.) And I wrote as a teen. (We thought our raps would spearhead revolution.) I write these days to share my joys and perspectives. I am as subjective as they come. I found a bunch of blessed souls that are just as expressive. And Africa is all the better for it. (I think I never really changed.)
