Love (and crap) Is In The Air

QueenOfHearts_Art555x

Wow, there is a lot of Valentines themed crap out there today on the interwebs. Blu dedicated a mixtape to the theme and countless others are releasing tracks or thoughts that just ooze ‘love’. This track from The Black Opera gets a little deeper with the whole concept that is love, breaking down the subjective dialogues that occur within all of us when assessing our partners to/that be. This track probably won’t be playing in the background when you’re sitting down for dinner tonight or the festivities afterwards, but then again, who wants to be that guy? Go break the mode, sit down with your significant other, listen to the track, and discuss your own inner thoughts about your own so-called love. While your parents listen to White Opera tonight, why not go Black, you’ve been a rebel since you left the crib, act accordingly.

ZIF Video Of The Week: The Black Opera: “Fxckin Problem” [Video Dramatization]

I love this video, from concept to delivery, the conscious minded Black Opera put an ironic spin on what truly constitutes a “Fxckin Problem” in our society. It’s tracks like this that make me wonder how far sound minded rappers like these guys are from mainstream appreciation. Considering the disinterest in content, the beat’s certainly been embraced, and they sound damn good over it. Yes, better than A$AP & Co.

Here’s the message that accompanied the video, for the slower cats out there, the first message is laced with irony and insincere wit. They are both the from the same source.

MESSAGE FROM [T]HE [B]LACK [O]PPOSITES:

A MESSAGE FROM THE BLACK OPERA:
In times like these, Dark Comedy is no laughing matter. So with all jokes aside, we wanted to put a satirical spin on A$AP Rocky’s “Fuckin’ Problem” in order to address current events and issues. Events and issues that include the school shooting in Connecticut, gun control, mental health, and America’s prescription drug addition amongst others. RIP to everyone that lost their lives in the Newtown, CT school shooting and the innocent lives lost everyday in these streets and around the world.
