Edition of 5
Last week I was contacted to make a video for a new Kanye West produced Jay-Z song for RED & the Global Fund to Fight AIDS in Africa. It launched today (World AIDS Day) at red.msn.com. And while I’m happy to be able to help the cause I’m also more than a little bit excited about getting a chance to make something for the likes of Jay-Z and Kanye. I’ve been turning down client requests to use Typographic Illustration for 5 years in hopes that one day the phone would ring and it would be Hova. The video can be seen on (RED) WIRE, or at this direct link on MSN video (I will update with an embed-able video shortly). I’m pretty sure that this is the first rap video to end with a download source code link.
Brooklyn Go Hard: brought to you by Jay-Z, Kanye West, Evan Roth, and Garamond.

Phase one in the Definitive Digital Dilla Data Base (DDDDB) is to compile the most complete listing of his life’s work. For some reason Stones Throw Records (his former label) has removed their Dilla Discography page…. but it’s no matter, history writing is for people not for companies. I’d like to call on all hip-hop fans to help update the J Dilla discography page on Wikipedia. Do you know any hard core Dilla fans? Send them the list and see if they have anything to add. See some tracks that are missing? Hit that edit tab son, and get to editing! Once the research is completed then the downloading can begin. Feel free to shoot me emails if you have comments or updates to share on the project (fi5e [at] ni9e.com).
