7thstori Miles Mfn Davis. #hbd
A few:
1. He's not the reason I played trumpet; earth wind and fire was. But when I got to know him bc of it...
2. He didn't believe in that extra stuff, he thought Louis Armstrong was a coon for that. He played his music, and let it speak for himself
3. He was married to cicely Tyson ( and smacked her up a cpl times :( 4. His voice was like that bc he lost his voice one time n got in a crazy argument n starred yelling (he said that, but it cldve been #thosedrugs )
5. #princeofdarkness
6. #thoseoutfits
7. #thatstare
8. He put his gals on his album cover, and that's just so #lit to me
9. Technical god
I always say this but I advise u all to read his autobiography, his life was vivid af and his voice was clear in the narrative. Yet another reason why I'm proud to be a part of this #geminiseason clan. #milesmyman #brass #thatembouchure #whatthatmoufdo #moondreams #bitchesbrew #birthofthecool #fadetoblack

7thstori (( purple )) is live on #spotify tadey. Give it a listen~ link in bio~~
---
In this review, I’m going to be exploring the rather peculiar new release of Stori Brooks, a single entitled ‘(( purple ))’ which is due out on Spotify, iTunes, and Pandora shortly. Inspired by her mother who was a classical concert pianist, and by the ‘sounds and movements of nature,’ Brooks has effectively created one of the more haunting and unusual sonic excursions in the indie scene this year. ‘Purple’ (I’ll be shortening it to that for ease here on out) is nearly impossible to place into a box. Brooks’ vocals at the very beginning evoke pop music, but her atmospheric croons doused in reverb quickly offer a sound much more akin to drone music. About a minute after the ghostly harmonies enter, electronic percussion and an equally drone-like cello slide into the landscape of ‘Purple,’ too. (The latter played by her nephew, Neph Brooks.) Don’t get too comfortable, though, because Brooks changes things up at the two minute mark by introducing a hip hop style lead vocal track. Yes, Brooks has essentially compounded half a dozen genres into one surprisingly coherent track. The instrumentation is mesmerizing, even surreal, and transports the listener to a remarkable place. On a quality set of studio headphones, ‘Purple’ will send a chill down your spine.

I don’t know how to classify Stori Brooks’ new song. It would defy any attempt I could make to do so. She tags herself as “alternative hip hop,” but I think there’s a lot more to it than that, even. Clocking in at less than three minutes, it’s a song you’ll find yourself looping into oblivion as it envelopes you entirely. Thus, it’s very much worth any listener’s time, if not just to appreciate the bizarre soundscape Brooks has created out of classical electronic, drone, and hip hop influence.

Oh, and if this is any sort of tribute to Prince - well done, Stori. -Tilting Windmill Studios #newmusic #storibrooks #alternativehiphop

7thstori A few:
1. I was not ready for Ready to Die when my big cousins would play him, but offtop Everyday Struggle & Machine Gun Funk is the sonic epitome of that 90s Brooklyn "feel"
2. The interlude with him and lil Kim made me p sure as a kid that I would not be having sex, ever
3. He was raised in the same neighborhood as my mom; i constantly asked her if she knew some bad chubby kid named Christopher ( no, and stop asking me that)
4.when I was finally ready to listen to him I quickly realized his effortless impeccable flow and storytelling skills, he even kept up w bone thugs n harmony in Notorious Thugs, easily
5. He was the King of Questionable lyrics "U look so good, I'd suck on ur daddy's d**" (& that's just one. Lol)
6. His quotables are still potent af, and way too much to list rn
7.CHARISMA.
8. Timeless songs. 12 year olds know his stuff.

Happy birthday to the king of ny, the most shady, Frankie baby. Immense influence on hiphop and grateful for him. Just one reason I'm proud to be in this Gemini gang~~~~ #geminiseason #hbdbig #blackexcellence #christopherwallace #fadetoblack
