Elbee Thrie – Possessed (Creative Zone)

Carte Blanche X @ElbeeThrieBeats of @PhonyPpl “Possessed” New Video.

The Phony Ppl crew never makes two songs that sound the same. Despire being such a young collective of artists, they’ve shown that they’re true musicians well versed not only in hip-hop, but soul, jazz, and funk as well. They sound just as comfortable over buttery, melodic joints as they do on wobbly bangers like “IDELY.”

Their latest offering is this set of visuals from Elbee Thrie. The song has a throwback feel to it and a video perfect for Halloween. It follows one young man and the demons that haunt him on an autumn afternoon on Nostrand Ave. “Possessed” is from Elbee’s free album I am A piG, available at Phony Ppl’s official site. Check it out above.

Nike Air Yeezy 2

Carte Blanche X Nike Air Yeezy 2

With Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch the Throne tour set to kick off this weekend, entertainment company VOYR is providing behind-the-scenes footage of the duo’s North American tour. A preview video is already up on their website and if you watch closely, someone is actually skating in a pair of the black Nike Air Yeezy 2 shoes. It’s unknown if Kanye himself is the one on the board and considering that Virgil Abloh and Ibn Jasper do in fact skate, there’s also a good chance it could be one of them. Jasper was even spotted skating in the first Air Yeezys back in 2009. If you recall, Kanye wore sample Air Yeezys throughout his entire Glow in the Dark tour in 2008, so if this behind-the-scenes footage is any indication of what sneakers Kanye will wear during the Watch the Throne tour, we could be seeing a lot more of the Air Yeezy 2 shoes in the next couple of months.

Drake Feat. Lil Wayne – “The Real Her”


Carte Blanche X New Drake Feat Lil Wayne “The Real Her”

The Internuts got their hands on Drake’s “The Real Her,” which may irk listeners who aren’t fans of R&B Drizzy. The mellowed tune sounds like a successor to “Houstonalantavegas” or maybe the sequel to the more recent track, “She Will,” if you want to view it at as a shift from the dancefloor of the party to closer, quieter quarters. Whatever the case, “The Real Her” is definitely an OVO love affair as Drake croons a tune directed at one of his many musical muses and Weezy comes through reciting lines that walk the fine line between simpin’ and pimpin’ before he decides accept a one-night stand. We may chide the YM brothers for the soft songs but they tend to make stronger, catchier love songs than most R&B singers because the two rappers have mastered melody and delivery and made the formula adaptable to whatever genre they choose to apply the techniques.

No official word on whether “The Real Her” will make Take Care or not.
