J. Pinder hosts some behind the scenes footage of Jake One’s upcoming video for Home. Off his latest album, White Van Music, featuring Vitamin D, C Note, Maine & Ish (Digable Planets). Is Seattle in the (dope)house!? UPDATE: Just as I posted the behind the scenes, I get a link to the actual video haha. So check that above and the BTS after the jump…

Rhymesayer’s Brother Ali and Roc-A-Fella’s Freeway perform their joint off Jake One’s White Van Music during a show in Minneapolis. This is very cool to see. And if you haven’t seen Brother Ali perform live you’re wasting your life away.
Jake One gets the Rik Cordero treatment for the video to his lead single off White Van Music which threw Roc-A-Fella & Rhymesayers in one pot. Can I get a Slug x Hov track?
Outside the White Van Music release party in Seattle, Jake One speaks on his (incredibly dope) new album that drops October 8th! One of my favorite albums of the year and actually the first cd I played in my new whip (more on that later). Actually… I put in The Great Beat Writer first, because I wanted to hear Rock Kokaine Flow.
Brother Ali talks about his experience working with Jake One, breaks down independent and mainstream hip hop and shares some of his favorite tracks off the album. I haven’t gotten my hard copy yet so I doon’t know first hand, but apparently the liner notes of White Van Music hold some interesting info. Like the Freeway x Brother Ali joint (The Truth) was supposed to be for Free’s last album and was gonna orinally supposed to be a Free x Jay-Z x Kanye West track. Then a bunch of other artists (Nas, Young Buck, Elzhi, etc) recorded over the instrumental but nothing ever formulated. Damn…
Free speaks on Jake one and White Van Music while on set of the video for The Truth. The incredibly dope single w/ Brother Ali off Jake’s upcoming White Van Music (October 7th!)
Two reasons for this post. 1. Check above for a hands on look at the packaging for Jake One’s upcoming White Van Music (October 7th, cop it!). If you’re a fellow RSE head like myself, you should already know that they go far and beyond with their shit and this is no different. On top of a bonus disc with all the instrumentals you get a 16 page booklet with linear notes with Jake speaking on each of the tracks. 2. All aspiring emcees take note. Here’s your chance to get a track from Jake One and a single release with Rhymesayers Entertainment. All you have to do is take your favorite instrumental off the bonus disc and record your best original song. Submit it to Jake One by Oct. 28th. Then on Nov. 4th the top 5 songs will be posted for a final vote from fans. If you take the win you get a brand new beat and a recording session with the Seattle producer to create an original song that will be released as a single through RSE. Dope!
Jake One, Brother Ali & Rik Cordero talk about Jake’s upcoming album (White Van Music, October 7th) and speak on the upcoming video for The Truth. I’m telling ya’ll. RSE >>>>> . Also, the illRoots kids have another DOOM assisted joint from the album if you wanna check it.
After we dropped the tracklist on ya’ll, it shouldn’t be that hard to sell you on this album. You must of been hit upside the head a few times with a fan blade if you aren’t thinking of copping this. White Van Music in stores October 7th!
When I posted the Bishop Lamont x Busta Rhymes joint off Jake One’s White Van Music I said I would only post one more track from the album. And that is this. A really dope collaboration between Slug (of Atmosphere) and Posdnuos (of De La Soul). I was under the impression that it was P.O.S. (of Doomtree) so I’m both sadly mistaken yet pleasantly surprised. On one hand Sluggo & P.O.S. make great fuckin’ music together and on the other hand it’s Pos from De La Soul! So here you go dopeboyz and dopegirlz and be sure to cop the album on October 7th!
Here goes another leak off the upcoming Jake One album, courtesy of X. Shit is sounding disgusting. Jake is a beast on the boards, for real for real. Aside from the Slug x P.O.S. record, this will be the last joint I let loose from the album. Be sure to cop White Van Music on October 7th!
I know everyone is waiting for Bar Exam 2, the life threatening emails prove so (smh). Anyways, this should help keep the Royce fans tame until GL finishes up the mix. I’ve been blazing this in the Zune for about a week now and now I see it hit the internets (what up B LOVE?) so here you go! The Elz x Nickel collab brings fire to our speakers once again. Let’s not forget Jake One on the boards! Definitely looking forward to his upcoming album, White Van Music, dropping October 7th!
