Cookin Soul x Gil Scott-Heron The Revolution Is Being Televised (Tribute Mix)

Monday, May 30th, 2011

The loss of Gil Scott-Heron at the still tender age of 62 this past weekend was a huge blow to music. He’s one of those figures that it’s hard to even put into words how important he was to this thing that brings us altogether. At least he got a chance to share one final project with the world and work with some of the artists he helped birth before he moved on.

Here is Cookin Soul’s tribute mix, The Revolution is Being Televised. Tracklist and link after the jump.

Jayceon goes over Don Cannon’s “Final Hour” beat in tribute to Nate Dogg. Game’s name-dropping, although excessive at times, actually comes in handy for this kind of track.

Donny Goines – The Loudest Silence (Disco D Tribute)

Wednesday, January 12th, 2011

Donny eulogizes the late Disco D.

Says Donny:

“Life’s easy, Death is hard…”

Dealing with the lost of a loved one is a pain that’s hard to describe. Even those who’ve felt it before may not fully understand how it affects them. David “Disco D” Shayman really made a profound impact on my life, even after his passing. His presence in this world was expressed in many different forms. He was a DJ, Producer, Son, Mentor, Businessman, Leader, Entrepreneur, Trendsetter and Pioneer but to me he simply was a great friend. Four years ago, he committed suicide and I have never fully recovered from this incident. Truthfully, I don’t think I ever will.

Friendship is also a term that many may find difficult to articulate. True friends are very rare characters who appear ion the story of your life, and thankfully Disco D was written within a chapter of mines. I only knew him for a short period of time, but those moments were some of the most critical of my life thus far. His was the brightest fire, extinguished far before it’s time but I refuse his life to be remembered as a mere ember. I wrote this song to help raise awareness for people like him. For the families and friends he left behind. For the lives that can be saved.

Often in death, we think about the “What if’s”. What if I had saw the signs? What if I had intervened? What if I heard the cries for help? It’s questions like these plague and torment us but I’ve learned that you must be aware of these questions in life. So with that being said, I ask you to please help me continue and honor my friends legacy by helping to save the life of someone you know. Someone who may be a total stranger. Anyone who may suffer the same fate as David did. Please be aware.

If you would like to help support the cause of Suicide Prevention I have selected a charity to which you can donate called the “American Foundation of Suicide Prevention”. I am in no way, shape or form affiliated with this organization and I won’t receive a cent. I just believe that they understand this devastating problem which afflicts many people within our communities and are doing many things to help prevent these type of tragedies.

R.I.P

David “Disco D” Shayman. Until we meet again.
