Prince Ea – Low Battery (Video)

Prince Ea – Low Battery (Video)

Prince Ea dropped his “Can We Auto-Correct Humanity” video a few weeks back and now we get an animated version of the spoken word piece. The animation comes courtesy of Sabine Allaeys and the background music was produced by DJsNeverEndingStory. As someone who unquestionably spends too much time checking his phone, Ea’s words definitely cause me to take a step back and consider what and who I’m missing as a result of technology. Serious props to Ea for all the work he has been putting in lately as he continues to spread love and light to anyone willing to take the time to listen.

Check out the video below.

Prince Ea – How to Get Rid of Stress in 60 Seconds (Video)

Prince Ea – How to Get Rid of Stress in 60 Seconds (Video)

Prince Ea is back with another “60 Seconds of Wisdom” video. This time around Ea provides viewers with a simple means of eliminating stress from their lives. The views expressed by Ea might seem overly simplified but every bit of knowledge dropped in this short video is accurate. In fact, the hardest part is accepting how simple it really is. Your perception shapes your reality, you are in control of your thoughts and, in turn, you are in control of your stress level. Give it a try. Once you see how easy it really is, I’m confident you’ll notice positive results almost immediately.

Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch & 9th Wonder Form Indie 500 (Video)

Indie500

After months of hinting via Twitter, Talib Kweli, Pharoahe Monch and 9th Wonder have revealed the creation their Indie 500 powerhouse collective. The three hip-hop heavyweights will be combining their resources, artists, and abilities with the intent of bringing hip-hop back to it’s roots and, as Kweli put it, “raise the value of art”. There’s really no question that the combination of the Javotti, Jamla, and W.A.R. Media families has the potential to make a serious impact on music, on an independent and mainstream level.

My mind is racing with thoughts of possible collaborations between artists that call Javotti, Jamla, and W.A.R. home. A Niko IS x Add-2 joint or maybe Rapsody x Cory Mo with Res singing the hook. Endless possibilities that all result in incredible music. I’m very excited to see what comes from Indie 500 in the coming weeks, months, and years, in regards to both music and business ventures.

Okayplayer caught up with the Kweli, Monch and 9th at the AC3 Festival recently to get the exclusive breakdown of exactly what Indie 500 is all about.
