Kanye & Joell Ortiz collaboration?

Posted in Interview, News, SOBs Radar, Songs on November 3, 2010 by SOBs

Last night on Hot 97 Funk Flex, Pusher T and Kanye all agreed that Joell Ortiz is a fresh up-and-coming lyricist and a “must click on the net”

Joell responded this morning saying how he was flattered to know that an artist he respect so much is paying attention and enjoying his music. Ortiz then goes on to say Kanye “has always been somebody that he is interested in working with”.

I think we could be seeing a collaboration in the near future, but until then we will just stop by SOBs Nov 9th to see Joell Ortiz perform live.

A Day In The Life: Estelle in The Studio with ?uestlove

Posted in Interview, Photos, Uncategorized, Videos on October 18, 2010 by SOBs

If I had to identify one person who is a soul songstress with captivating lyrics that fans gravitate towards, it would have to be Estelle. Estelle is a neo soul songbird who hails from England who bombarded the United Stated music charts with songs like American Boy (featuring Kanye West) and Come Over (featuring Sean Paul). Her captivating appearance and voice draws people to her songs that talk about love, relationships and the type of American guys she favors. This Fall, Estelle is one of many surprise guest for the John Legend and The Roots Wake Up Tour 2010. I had the pleasure to have attended this concert where she re-sang The Roots song You Got Me that features Erykah Badu and Eve. The way she sang this classic hit song (originally by Erykah Badu) and added her signature soft voice and still managed to maintain the essence of the song is very impressive and quite frankly hard to accomplish. As a result to her working close with The Roots, she has a member of the roots, Questlove, producing a couple of tracks off her next album. Their chemistry on stage together will have fans anticipating another successful album and number 1 hits. In the meantime, everyone should checkout her next single Fall in Love produced by Questlove featuring John Legend and Nas.
