The duo of O.R. They? [Walter J. Liveharder & Jed Sed] drop their Wes Anderson inspired project “Did Somebody Say Our Names?”. The project includes 7 tracks and is just an appetizer to larger things to expect from this incredible duo. One of those big things to expect is the duo opening for Cali emcee BLU this Friday at The Shrine, make sure to come out and support Hip-Hop as you begin your weekend.
Chinese food, shots, and good smoke come together for a dope video from Chicago MC Jed Sed. Directed by Josh Martin, the choppy video compliments the beat’s snare to perfection, bringing an almost psychedelic feel to the joint. “Irish Exit” is off Jed’s latest project Trivial Pursuit, which pairs well with a pack of white grapes and an old school Cadi (in case you were wondering).
I admit – I’m a music snob. All the time, people are tellin’ me “listen to this,” “yo, listen to that” – and I usually give em the, “yeah… sure… whatever, man.” But every once in a while, someone plays a track that raises my left eyebrow and we play 20 questions – who is this, where they from, etc. Few feelings trump that when you discover something fresh – somethin’ that grabs your neck and rocks it back and forth, somethin’ that resonates with that internal library of dope cuts and leaves you wanting more. It’s a good feeling. And I’ve been riding this high for a few weeks now, since a homie exposed me to Jed Sed. A lyrically minded MC with chops that stand up to if not surpass most of those in the scene. You won’t hear any gunshots or auto tune on Trivial Pursuit – his latest project (produced by Montana Macks). Instead, you’ll find yourself in tune with a midwest confidence thats hard to come by these days, and worth appreciating. Jed’s sharp, yet laid-back flow spares all fillers, making the most of every down beat and snare tap. It’s some smoke up, slow down, listen close, summer shit. Now do yourself a favor, and do exactly that.
