Inspired by “black leather,” “beat-up denim” and “81s,” Jack Davey’s video for “Ride On” is a collection of vintage biker gang clips. Jack herself makes a few appearances as well. The footage was compiled by Joey Strat (Dead World Films), and this song can be found on Jack’s experimental rock project L0-F! Side A, available now.

Tonight (June 6), the world-famous Apollo Theater will showcase black punk rocker and Brooklyn native Tamar-Kali in special event celebrating the finale of the Harlem venue’s “Music Cafe” series.
The “Apollo Music Cafe” is billed as a platform for avant-garde artists to display their innovative sounds in a lounge setting.
First capturing mainstream attention for her spotlight in the critically acclaimed documentary AfroPunk, Tamar Kali released her debut album Black Bottom last year. She’s kept her sound diverse by working with Hip-Hop artists like Jean Grae (“Pearl Remix”) and contributing three selections to the soundtrack for the movie Pariah, a Sundance Festival selection.
Tickets for tonight’s show can be purchased at the Apollo Theater Box Office and Ticketmaster for $20. Doors open at 9 PM with the show’s start time at 10 PM. Also appearing will be the band 5IVE Piece. For more information visit www.apollotheater.org and Tamar-Kali’s official website.

No good idea in Hip-Hop goes unnoticed. Timbaland has taken a que from his contemporaries, and announced the formation of his very own free weekly music series, Timbo Thursdays.
Timbaland confirmed the news via Twitter, citing the recent work of Kanye West (G.O.O.D. Fridays) and Swizz Beatz (Monster Mondays) as his inspiration.
“So my brother told me Kanye is putting out a new song every Friday called G.O.O.D. Fridays. Swizz got Mondays,” Timbaland tweeted. “I don’t know if they are on Twitter,but you can hit them up and tell them to reserve Thursday for Timbo da king baby.”
Timbaland would be the sixth artist this year to launch their own weekly series. He follows the work of Joe Budden (Mood Muzik Mondays), Lloyd Banks (Blue Friday), the RZA (Wu Wednesdays), Rock of Heltah Skeltah (Monsta Mondays), Kanye West (G.O.O.D. Fridays), and Swizz Beatz (Monster Mondays). The trend’s originator is Crooked I, whose groundbreaking Hip-Hop Weekly series had him releasing new freestyles every week from April 4, 2007 through April 3, 2008.
Although Timbaland’s series will happen, the Virginia producer is not sure on actual start date. For now, he is taking his time mixing tracks and deciding which ones are worthy for public consumption.
“I will announce when Timbo Thursday will officially start. I can’t at the moment ’cause I’m in mixing mode,” he said.
Timbaland plans to release his fourth studio album, Shock Value III, in early 2011.
All we need now is someone to lock up Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday to have the whole week wrapped up. There’s always a danger of saturation, but I personally like to see artists opening up their vaults and showing musically what direction they have, or are looking to go into.
With Timbaland, I hope he concentrates more on his Hip-Hop and R&B tracks than his Pop work. Tim’s been in the game since the mid 90′s, so he has a wealth of material to sift through. Imagine if he threw up some Aaliyah tracks from the One In a Million era? Or some Missy from the Supa Dupa Fly timeframe? I think he could really do something with his series if he looks back at his late 90′s work.
I hope Just Blaze jumps into the fray (Blazing Saturdays, perhaps?). At a beat session I went to last year, he played snippets of some crazy tracks like Jay Electronica’s “Exhibit B,” and a song with Twista and Busta Rhymes that had the fastest rhyming I’ve ever heard.

Rock of Heltah Skeltah will pay tribute to the West Coast next month with a new mixtape called Rockin’ Out West.
The collection is a physical CD only release inspired by Rock’s time in Los Angeles. The project serves as a celebration of sorts, as Rock was recently cleared of a two-year attempted murder case in New York. The Rockness Monstah credits that struggle with helping him create meaningful art.
“Rockin Out West is my latest gem. Most diamonds are rocks that form under high-pressure high-temperature conditions but at the end you get something beautiful, something special, a gem,” Rock explained to Beats, Boxing and Mayhem. “That’s all a metaphor for the case I faced over the past two and a half years. The case and the pressure I was under created the climate that gave me the fuel and the fire to do this project. It happened on accident, but then again I don’t really believe in accidents.”
The project features 28 tracks over classic or West Coast-derived beats and appearances from Kurupt, Ras Kass and Nate Dogg.
Rockin’ Out West hits stores on September 7th.
