Kooley High IS Back With New Visuals “Ceiling”
We’re hyped to see North Carolina Hip-Hop crew Kooley High back at with new treats! Their latest single “Ceiling” features a piano driven sample, a light boom bap beat pattern, a dope bassline and a Outkast “Aliens” sample in the hook. Tab-One and Charlie smarts spit some tight bars about elevating to higher heights, hence the name Ceiling ;).
“Ceiling” will be featured on Kooley High‘s upcoming album “Never Come Down” which will be executive produced by 9th Wonder. As you may or may not know 9th Wonder scooped up Rapsody while she a part of Kooley High back in the day so it’s pretty dope that he’s now executive producing their new album. Will we see a Rapsody cameo on the new album??? We hope so, that would be epic!!
In case ya’ll forgot (“Kooley Is High” 2009)
“Flip It” by 1905 #HipHop Instrumental
We’re diggin the chillhop vibes of “Flip It”, crafted by 1905. The jazzy piano sample, boom bap drum pattern and thick bass make this a nice treat for the ears. Flip it is featured on the HipHop instrumental album “2 Days” by 1905. The album is full of sample driven, chill, jazzy boom bap beats.
Heavily influenced by graffiti and hash oil, 1 9 0 5 pushes beats through a sampler, the same one he has previously digged with the pope. On day 1 he created a joint and it became light. On day 2 he did this f*****’ tape. The rest of the week he just chilled. ~ XQRSNS Records

About “Gold Purple Orange”
Jean Grae Says… “Glamour photo shoots from the 1980s. They’re beautiful. They’re soft. They’re expressive. People have the best shots and expressions. Not to mention- props. Not to mention backdrops. Yet, I have mentioned them.
When we came up with the album title, I started thinking about what kind of photos best expressed that statement. It was instantly the awkward, temporary confident smile of an 80s glamour shot.
What could make that even more awkward? Holding that pose for a very long time. It’s a metaphor for the sociopolitical state of our global community. Just kidding. It’s commentary on the treatment of British orphans in the 1800s. Just kidding. It’s not being afraid to be yourself, for a long period of time.
Even if that seems uncomfortable. Not kidding.
Just kidding. No I’m not. It’s about sandwiches. There are none in the video.
It’s a fun video. Our friends are in it.
We played dress up. I love editing and shooting and directing videos. In that way, it was also a fucking blast.
I shot it in our living room, and now we own entirely too many 1980s backdrops for photo shoots.
Shout out to the amazing Mindy Tucker, who shot the original album art and press photos, because we then continued with the look, to keep the project cohesive.
Really, it was a wonderful artwork shoot for both experiences.”
It’s always cool to see HipHop heads having fun!!
