LMAO…How do you not like this?! Jhameel just hit 10,000 fans on Facebook (Congrats Bro, you more than deserve it)! To honor his fans this time around, Jhameel gets hammered off a bottle of cheap tequila and performs a highly inebriated Justin Timberlake/Taylor Swift mash-up.
Topics covered in Jhameel’s drunken ramblings include:
Unrequited Love for his 3rd Grade Teacher
Mr. Never Disappoint is back with a video for the AMAZING song, Shadow of a Man. How can you not like the real life content of his music? It has a Michael Jackson vibe to it.
The video captures Jhameel’s raw emotionality as he watches a loved one crushed under the weight of an abusive relationship. Shadow of a Man was directed, shot, conceptualized, and edited in-house by Jhameel and his team with no outside support or funding, making it a fully independent project. The video was shot amidst the wrecked and abandoned buildings of Salton City, a desolate California ghost town left to decay by its inhabitants in the 1970′s.
Philadelphia rapper e-dubble just dropped his new “Reset” EP last night and I’m excited to tell you about one of the dopest songs off of it. It’s his epic collaboration with the Bay Area’s Jhameel — Code Words.
Code Words features a swaggering, fearless flow from e-dubble and Jhameel’s most ferocious hook to date. The driving piano and monumental drum beat got my adrenaline spiking immediately, hope you dig it!
Jhameel has just released his cover of Frank Ocean’s “Thinking About You”. He pays homage to the original with tasteful restraint; softly plucked strings and a mesmerizing beat create a lush, yet minimalist atmosphere. The result is a flowing, immersive track carried in waves by Jhameel’s velvet falsetto.
This is AMAZING…It almost sounds like a whole new song. Jhameel just posted a cover of his absolute favorite song, the Bee Gee’s Stayin’ Alive. I love the dark, moody atmosphere he put on this one, it digs into a more desperate interpretation of the words ‘Stayin’ Alive’ and modernizes the song from it’s 70′s recession roots and puts into a new 2012 recession context. I’ve included the original afterwards for you to compare.
In making this video, we hoped to capture both the natural beauty of aHayao Miyazaki film and the pulpy drive of a classic adventure flick. A Maiden Calling was the third installment of the successfully releasedAre You Freeseries, and spent several weeks on the We Are Hunted charts.
Its been a DOPE run, even though I’ve been late on some songs. This is the finale to Jhameel’s Are You Free series. With the climactic atmosphere of a post-rock anthem, Let’s Run Away immerses the listener in a dark but hopeful fantasy. Jhameel’s captivating, desperate vocal performance inspires an adolescent longing for escape, building the track to an explosive, gut-wrenching peak.
Simply put, this guy makes really good music! I’m excited to bring you the 4th song from Jhameel’s Are You Free series, The Long Run. The Long Run takes the Are You Free series in a new direction, capturing Jhameel’s more vulnerable side. He delivers a brash vocal performance tinged with melancholy — as bright, brassy synth lines pop over a Prince-inspired dance beat.
A little late…but better late than never. This week’s song is A Maiden Calling — a fluttering, ethereal indie-pop track, which follows Jhameel as he is inextricably drawn to a maiden’s mysterious siren-like call. The track is the third installment of the five part series Are You Free.
I’m very proud to bring you the second installment of Jhameel’s Are You Freeseries, titled Shadow of a Man. I love the lyrics and the tempo. He has a way with making songs that aren’t just catchy, but about something. The song is Jhameel’s vicious examination of a female friend’s dysfunctional relationship. I can only imagine how dope the video would be to this.
Are You Free is a five part series in which Jhameel releases a new song each Tuesday for five weeks. Are You Free follows in the footsteps of his hit series Waves that launched singles ‘White Lie’ and ‘Waves’ to the top ten of the Hype Machine charts.
