VOTD: Addy power!

Experience local rapper Jabee’s love letter to OKC.

So this way-cool, beautifully shot Jabee music video premiered at this past weekend’s 2012 Addy Awards as part of a campaign “to educate advertisers about the wealth of quality original musical available to them for their local advertising campaigns.” To date, OKSee has never agreed more vigorously with a press release.

It goes on: “When musicians are supported by the arts AND the business communities, the likelihood of them being able to attempt to make a full-time career in music here, rather than Nashville, Austin, LA, et al goes up = economic and cultural stimulus.” Boo-yah!

So yeah, 200 thumbs up to producer/director Digital DK and creative director Robot House Creative for this one, which has Jabee spitting his love for his hometown all over said hometown.

The fun doesn’t stop there. The aforementioned campaign came with a two-disc, 37-track compilation of local songs that you can download for free! Artists included are Broncho, Sherree Chamberlain, O Fidelis, The Rockettops, Horse Thief, Zach Winters, Crocodile and plenty more!

Speaking of Jabee, dude’s just announced a Kickstarter project to fund his next album, and he’s aiming high. Like, $25k high. Watch and donate:

Soundcheck: Beetyman — Underdog


Music

Matt Carney
It’s refreshing to hear earnest backpack rap at a time when some of the most topically vile, base and offensive music in the genre’s history (read: Odd Future) is what’s buzzing.

Kick it

Thanks to the website Kickstarter, local musicians increasingly find it easier to fund albums before recording a single note.


Music

Joshua Boydston
Most local musicians don’t live like rock stars. It’s usually a part-time gig, more about the passion than the luxuries it brings.
