If you’re on the east coast, we hope you’re staying safe, dry and warm with Hurricane Sandy going on a rampage. But for those with power and internet, join us in enjoying the following cover videos. All of these we highly enjoyed and thought you shouldn’t miss a single one of them. There’s something to love about each so set aside a good half hour or so and enjoy these awesome covers!
Midwestern rapper, Lil Crazed, has never shied away from the fact that he’s a family man, despite his young 24 years of age. And with that, he’s introduced to the world his newest song, Elliot Ou. This is his 3rd child, with Alijah and Isaac paving the way first. Find out why he calls the family ‘the vowels’ and more in the following vlog clip from the head K.i.D. member. Congrats to Crazed and his family!
Round-up time! There’s no criteria here. These are just some covers that I thoroughly enjoyed by a whole roster of artists. All the videos are pretty entertaining watches to boot, so I doubt you’ll walk away from this collection unsatisfied. Some of these songs just may be better listens than the original, but don’t take my word for it. Enjoy!
In an interesting change of pace, Lil Crazed has decided to promote a spoken word piece, returning to his lyrical roots. It’s a harrowing tale of family struggle with the ominous visuals to match. This is part of a new mini-series that the KiD is working on, with new episodes debuting the first Wednesday of every month.
Pacer has teamed up with Lil Crazed to help spread the TEASE Campaign (To Encourage a Safe Environment), an initiative to bring awareness to the rising amount of bullying that youth face today. They are using the track “Tick Tock”, featuring Andrew Garcia, to further the cause – with all profits going to the Pacer organization. It’s always encouraging to see artists understand that they can use their position for a greater good.
Here are 8 new covers for your Friday to kick start your weekend. As you can tell by the title, only cover music videos are included in this batch. In other words, every video in this round-up are not live covers but rather songs that were pre-recorded and then used to make a music video with above average production values. The only quasi odd video out is a dance number by Jay Park. Enjoy!
Jay Park x Haw (Prepix) Dance to “Get It Shawty” by Lloyd
Sam Tsui x Kevin Olusola x Kurt Schneider Cover “One More Night” by Maroon 5
Legaci x Rockus Cover “Titanium” by David Guetta x Sia
How about some R&B tunage to close out your weekend/start off the work week? Tonight’s collection of covers and remixes are all centered around the R&B genre and we’re kicking it off with another extraordinary song by The Runs. There’s a lot to like here, so be sure to sit back and enjoy these heartfelt songs. Everyone can use a little more R&B in their lives.
Crazed and Michelle Martinez have once again joined forces for a new dance track, “Party All Night”. As it should be expected, the song is very party oriented with synths, high tempo and energy aplenty. A music video will be dropping later today, and we’ll be sure to update with the visual, but we wanted to get the word out that it’s now available for purchase.
Every once in a while, the elements combine into a perfect storm that results in the phenomenon we like to call, the round-up. OK, it’s really not that rare of an occurrence, it just means that we have a number of covers to share with you that we are thematically able to group together. But heck, we don’t need to justify ourselves to you! Here’s 9 music videos of cover/remix/mash-ups that you may enjoy.
Connie Lim x Josh Hand Remixes “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story
Like any good leader of a Hip-Hop troupe, Lil Crazed always remember to give his crew some shine, as the K.i.D. posse joins him on the extended song, “Runnin’”. Everyone joins him for the official music video, appropriately shot at an athletic track/field. Stay tuned till the end for some updates on upcoming events and material. The song if available on iTunes as well, for your personal listening pleasure.
