A fan of Patrick House yet?
Well take into consideration his short film “Blue Diamonds”. Official selection Atlanta Comedy Film Festival, Gold Award, Silver Award and it continues shining brighter in film competitions.
It’s about a group of friends dealing with erectile dysfunction decide to resort back to their thieving ways to solve their problem and make some extra money in the process.
Peep the trailer below…
One thing for sure, it looks like a funny ass adventure. Patrick House smooth camera action makes the trailer pop. Gotta salute the music supervisor, cause the soundtrack fits the landscape perfectly.
Following it up with the video for Marcus Machado’s – “I Can’t Lose” only cemented House’s creative visions. He’s strategic and meticulous yet simple.
While I didn’t see it yet, the clip below had me dying but in a feel good way.
It reminded me of family, it was relatable and at the end of the day that’s the only thing that matters. A film that conveys trust within the viewer, dope job!
I’m still bugging off the bio lol, yall are wilding. Loving the humor.
Thank you Patrick House for these tastefully soulful visuals for Marcus Machado – “I Can’t Lose” feat. Jermaine Holmes.
The official video starts flowing cinematically introducing the characters from House’s 2017 short film Blue Diamonds starring Tony D. Head, Sarah Doneghy, Jas Anderson, Ronald Smith II and Menuhin Hart.
The video intertwines with the movie at a local club where Marcus Machado and his super band of highly respected artist are gearing up for a set. Jermaine Holmes, Redd Middleton, Kendra Foster, Lez Lemon and Shawn Dustin are prominently cool with the soulful vibes. Peep the review we did where we go into details.
I somehow missed that Kendra Foster aka The Butterfly was doing bg vocals but it make so much sense. As not to many can distinctively convey funk in the way that she can along with angelic funky crew harmonizing in along side her.
We already went into Marcus Machado talents in a previous post, but seeing him in the zone on the guitar brings it all into perspective. This is music that runs through your body. Feel it my peoples…
Watching it play out, makes me wanna see “Blue Diamonds“.
Sup Patrick, can we catch that media release?

Back from a hiatus, the mysterious Dj Gibril Kuyateh returns to Brooklyn Radio with special twisted treats and ear candy from Brooklyn and beyond. Special guest is Chicago Emcee & Producer Tree! Most of you heard the new Ghostface and BadBadNotGood (BBNG) joint ft Tree called “Street Knowledge”. Well, Tree brings a particular clarity to Trap with his own style called Soul Trap!
For the love of soul…
There’s no better teaching tool then to watch the best new and classic soul singers rock it in a cypher. These artist exemplify a control over their art where energy is transferred through sound.
Everything about these vibes are right. The frequencies universally beaming into our heart and soul is simply melanin magic.
Music from the soul can never be captured, for it is pure energy.

Dope interview with Pras | Fugees. The brother knows how to crush the questions and maintain control. He’s informative, intellectual and concise in thought. A pleasure to watch indeed.
Ebro’s line of questioning had a tone of respect and there weren’t to many loaded questions that Pras couldn’t handle. Laura Stylez and Peter Rosenberg where equally respectful but poignant with questioning.
I like seeing this respect for those that have paved the way, and yes, Pras has done his part when you do your homework and understand his real position within the Fugees.
I didn’t know that he was so aware and open to discuss the hypocrisies in music, politics and the culture. He kinda set it off early on starting from here…

On Lauren Hill Not Writing/Producing
…according to Robert Glasper claim. Here is where after the warm buttering up, Ebro now gets to what we all want to know. It wasn’t to sneaky but definitely a different direction from earlier questions.
After listening, you get that Pras acknowledges that Lauren Hill writes all her material. As for producing, that’s another complicated matter that can only be negotiated because of the many technicalities.
This is where if any reading this is an artist, play close attention. A lot of gems being dropped about publishing rights and credit when creating music.
Great stuff, dope job Hot 97 and Pras.
