Knxwledge 1988

Continuing with showing love to diverse producers, DJ’s, beat makers. The Laid back creative flow of Glenn Boothe aka - Knxwledge fell into my lap with his new 2020 release while trying to find a Corona Virus groove. My introduction to Knxwledge was his 2015 release HUD Dreams so this was a welcomed surprise. Thus finally getting to talk about this creative artist that caught my attention 2 years ago.

We finally find information that Chaz has been talking about for a while. The nation is separated and not only by our political views but our cultures that makes people see things differently.  We discover some things from Business insider about the 11 different nations within the United States that has certain views about how they live.  We debate the validity as well as some revelations about areas we haven't been to.

Parasite (Korean)

This Korean drama was awarded and praised at the Cannes film festival by the great Korean director Bong Joon Ho.  This was something I knew I wanted to see but wasn't sure if Alicia would be able to keep up with subtitles.  This film turned out to be an amazing lesson in the differences of class, privilege and suspense.  This movie was laid out so well that you never knew would would be next.  An extraordinary piece of art.

You already know we criticize Dreamville for lack of promotion and weak promotion.  But mad love to a lot of their artist and the King sitting on top J.Cole.  So this massive compilation release with so many surprises that I couldn't get to the end until I rewinded so many of these cuts that it too me a few days to take it all in.  Any way here it is.

The team debates how the candidates did at presidential debates for the democrats. We assess the front runners, the people who should drop off as well as the perception that women and many others are tired of the old white men running for office. Chaz goes with the comedian on stage analogy of who has the best new material that people can be gravitate to. Aaaaand what is it about Biden that is making people nervous?debate.jpg

CAM (Netflix)

This was an odd movie from Netflix that kept showing up in my feed. Basically a Cam girl (actresses that gets money from porn cam’s) that some how gets her identity stolen. Skip the profession she is in. Check out the interesting risk this women will have to go through to get her identity back. Won awards as well. Based on the life of the writer who was a Cam girl.

The team drifts off into a sensitive subject about voters, people and citizens that wants to get their voices heard but unfortunately the democrats are following the old script of hitting the major cities (high population) and ignoring rural areas that helped to get Trump in office. lively discussion on where we should spend our time and effort. Or should we?

The team takes a look at the politicians jumping into the 2020 race and we think about the republican possible candidates that can possibly get Democrats to switch over based on what is being offered. The ex CIA acting director Mccabe speaks out with his new book and how much of the Mueller probe is making the team feel confident.

We end the 3 part review of the music awards for 2018 with a few reviews that we enjoyed based on the lyrical abilities of these artist.  Ending with the Album/Artist of the year, that doesn’t line up too well with the Grammy’s. Especially the crime of not including J. Cole.  Go back and reference the reviews for these nominee's throughout the year so you can see where we were with our predictions.

Part Three:
Slept on album of the year
Creative album of the year
Underground Lyrical Album of the year
Hip Hop Lyrical Album of the year
Album of the year

SEARCHING (2018)

Alicia and I sit down to watch this amazing tech driven mystery.  No on our immediate radar but as we watched some short prevews and reviews.  We thought this would be a great movie to jump into for this week. With great twist and turns with a creative way of filming.  This movie was worth watching.
