Sometimes you just gotta judge a book by it’s cover or in this case an EP. Something told me I would enjoy this and that is exactly what I did.
Natasha Alexander is a young woman who’s been singing practically her entire life. Growing up, she sang in the church choir and school musicals while also receiving Opera and Classical training. Alternating from jazzy to soulful, this FreeP ties together hip-hop and neo-soul soundscapes (by 9th Wonder, Flying Lotus, and Madlib) with Natasha’s strong vocals and personal lyrics.
This 7 track EP is an amazing introduction to an artist I hope we hear more from very soon! Grab the EP HERE.

The latest visual from Terrace Martin is served up as a short film. Around 9 minutes, but worth every one of em. Ab-soul makes his bartender debut, Sherane is still Sherane and though I’ve seen this a few times, I just recognized the song the quartet play at the beginning. Martin’s 3ChordFold is due later this year. For now, enjoy the first single produced by himself alongside 9th Wonder & some assistance from Problem.
Available on iTunes.
What can I say? Murs is a living legend…no pun intended.
Off Murs & 9th Wonder’s album, The Final Adventure.
I feel like the footage above pretty much sums up how awesome my TDE Experience was!!!
A few members of 3rd Eye Optiks went to the Jamla Records event at Velocity Sneaker Boutique in Charlotte, North Carolina.
