What if

Welcome to A Month full of reminiscence

February has more celebrations than December: In Hip Hop, we celebrate Black History Month, Dilla Month and Valentine’s Day.

Black History Month

February is African History month and just in time, India. Arie published her latest album “Worthy” with a beautiful ode to African-American heroes:

The full album will be released on February 15 and if you can’t wait for more of India. Arie – like me! – go check out her Podcast Songversation where she talks in detail about her songs, new and old. I love it and it has inspired me to start a Songversation Podcast Series with Tansy Davis from Episode 2 of The Healer Hip Hop Podcast soon!

Dilla Month

February is also Dilla Month, celebrating the Life & Achievements of a Detroit Legend who was born on February 7.

J Dilla has produced a lot of the songs of the artists I listen(ed) to, such as Busta Rhymes, The Pharcyde, Erykah Badu, Common, De La Soul, Guru, Slum Village and many more. 

My favorite track of his is and has always been The last donut of the night, so you’ll find that on the Playlist.

Valentine’s Day

Lastly, the thing we celebrate in February that I care about least is Valentine’s Day. André 3000 best describes my feeling towards this day, so that one HAD to be on this month’s playlist 😀

The Healer Hip Hop Playlist December 2018

This is the last Playlist of 2018 and boy, what a year! There was so much amazing music released this year, that it was hard to keep up, even for me.

If you want to read a very good summary of this year’s greatest releases (while listening to my playlist 😉 go over to my girl Wanja Lange’s (from THHH Podcast Episode 3) page istillloveher.de and check out her articleBest Albums of 2018.

I love this month’s playlist so much and been playing it all day for the past weeks. Two songs I want to particularly point out and absolutely randomly both of them have to do with Brazil. Just listen to these two and you’ll see why!

One is Fabriccio’s song Amor e som which samples Erykah’s track Didn’t you know from her classic Mama’s Gun (need I say more):

Another song I want to point out is by Ill Camille and called Sao Paulo. I have just recently learned of Ill Camille and love her laid-back style. I couldn’t  agree more with the following description of her: 

The consistent blah-blah-blah of the mumble rap crowd, mixed with those deft lyricist and songwriters who keep us grooving seem to be everywhere. Only one, Ill Camille, the Compton-born, Los Angeles-and-Inland Empire-raised rapper + songwriter, has the innate gift of giving the ears exactly what they want. The “Jane-of-all-trades” caught my attention when she tweeted new work in the form of “São Paulo,” which would feature her alongside two of our faves: Rose GoldTDE‘s co-president Punch.

#03: Wanja Lange

In today’s episode I met with Wanja Lange, CEO of istillloveHER.de. She’s been a hip hop blogger for over ten years and she also runs a promotion agency and has her own merchandise. She has plenty to tell about how the business has changed and how being a woman in a mostly male dominated industry still sometimes effects her work. We also talk about women in Hip Hop in general and how Hip Hop saves lifes.

You find more information on Wanja on http://istillloveher.de and on almost every social media channel!
