VIDEO: Jasmine Solano’s “That’s Not It”

Spotted this video on another website, and what attracted to me first was her. I clicked the video, listened, and thought “wow, this is damn good.” It plays on hipsters and self-identity,and comes out very confident,I’d like to hear more from Miss Solano. The video was directed by Vashtie Kola.

As for the title and hook, it comes from the Spinderella verse in this song, so while Solano may or may not be looking for a mighty good man, she’s ready to endure what it takes to be heard as an artist.

SOME STUFFS: Hip-hop buttons by artist Nathan McKee

Salt-N-Pepa, Public Enemy, Biggie Smalls, 2Pac, and Run-DMC are the artists who are part of a new series of buttons created by Portland, Oregon artist Nathan McKee, who zinesters may know for his fanzine Fake Your Own Death.

These aren’t digitally manipulated Photoshop print-outs, but rather hand drawn so when you buy and wear them at school or concerts, they’re sure to start up a discussion. There’s even a cool Michael Jackson set, covering all prime eras of MJ’s adult life in illustrated form.
