I find it odd that as talented as Adrian Younge is (the man is a musical genius, can pick up and learn any instrument and really knows music), those who claim to be “real” heads only know him from his work on PRhyme and possibly Souls of Mischief’s There Is Only Now.
Other than that, no one seems to know that he not only scored the Black Dynamite film, but edited it as well. Or the fact that his sound is strictly analog. His Adrian Younge Presents: The Delfonics and Adrian Younge Presents Venice Dawn: Something about April albums rarely, if ever, get mentioned – although once in awhile you’ll hear someone bring up Ghostface Killah’s Twelve Reasons to Die.
*shakes finger at you so called “heads”* Adrian Younge is just as important to the West Coast music scene as Kendrick Lamar. In case you missed it, he’s supplied Bilal with two bangers already: “Sirens II” and “Satellites” – both which will appear on the soul singer’s upcoming A Love Surreal, In Another Life, produced entirely by Adrian.
This past Friday at the Regent Theater in L.A., multi-instrumentalist Adrian Younge was joined on stage by Bilal and Kendrick Lamar where they debuted a brand new song titled “Money Over Love,” backed by the funky sounds of Venice Dawn.
While details on the song are scarce, I wouldn’t be surprised if this ends up on Bilal’s upcoming project – considering the two have worked extensively together on To Pimp A Butterfly.
