28HUNDRED PRESENTS: Gabriel Teodros

206UP and Jae Change have collaborated to form 28Hundred, a new media company dedicated to producing original video content and in-depth, personality-driven interviews with some of your favorite artists. Stay tuned here for the latest 28Hundred productions.

Gabriel Teodros’ music and family may take him to different cities across the globe, but he is without a doubt a Town rap fixture. 28Hundred caught up with GT in Bushwick, Brooklyn this past summer to chop it up about his music, his Ethiopian Heritage and the time 2Pac visited him in a dream. We’re also thrilled to have this video featured on the Monarch Review and Okay Africa — many thanks to the good folks at those outstanding websites!

Happy Belated
Self-released (2014)

Score (Potholes In My Blog scale): 3 / 5

Chaz French is a blue-chip rap prospect from the Washington, D.C. area whose debut album, Happy Belated, has been making the requisite blog rounds for the last couple of weeks. And, while it’s mostly enjoyable hearing Chaz slam home vocal alley-oops over the production work of fellow upstarts — names like Kris Minor and Super Miles — Happy Belated ends up feeling more like 28 points scored on 10-for-thirty shooting, rather than an efficient use of the rapper’s obvious natural talent…

VIDEO: “Running Home” – Brothers From Another (dir. by Jon Holman)

This is tight. Brothers From Another bring a dope concept to an effortlessly fresh video for their new track, “Running Home.” BFA play genial Love Scouts in what appears to be a beautiful aligning of souls between two nameless people. A little Wes Anderson, a little low-budget DIY charm — it’s the nimble BFA crew making it all look easy, as usual. Video directed by Jon Holman, track produced by Nima Skeemz.
