Get Busy Committee - I Don't Care About You

The latest video from the hip hop project managed by Ian Rogers, who explains his theory of “Do Something Small Weekly, Something Big Monthly” on his blog. I love the fact that this video was 1) released for Valentine’s Day, and 2) inspired by this seizure-inducing web page.

Get Busy Committee – Chillin Out Maxin

MP3: Get Busy Committee – “Chillin Out Maxin” from Uzi Does It, out now on Tokyo Sex Whale.

So what’s up with all the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air love lately? Last month there was the Neil Young via Jimmy Fallon remake, and now the Get Busy Committee is using a prominent sample of the theme song. Of course, Will Smith was “shootin’ some b-ball outside of the school,” while GBC is shootin’ off their Uzis.

GBC is co-managed by Topspin’s Ian Rogers, who’s done a great job using the internet to market this band. He even wrote up a “how to guide” on the steps they took to make the album release a success. None of that would matter, clearly, if the music wasn’t good. But it is good. It’s got a lot in common with classic-era hip hop like NWA and Above the Law. The gangster shit definitely got played out by the mid-90s, but maybe it’s time for a resurgence. If so, GBC will be leading the pack. Regardless, “Chillin Out Maxin” is one of the best hip hop songs I’ve heard in 2009, and I can’t stop listening to it.

Plus, those Uzi-shaped USB drives are just plain dope.
