Oh Snap! This guy is my first official musical crush of the New Year. Shakka’s track “Take Our Time” is an amazing remix of J Dilla’s epic “So Far to Go”. The beat, the lyrics, the video, his voice, his adorable face all scream awesome sensuality and the joys of new love.
This video uses that mind tripping ‘backwards filming’ [that we’ve seen in videos like Pharcyde’s “Drop” and re-done in Waalhi’s Promo Video for “Hip Hop Revival Part 4” in Montreal] which is perfect for the concept cause don’t we all kind of feel like we’re moving forward and the world’s going backwards when you just begin exploring a new romance.
With February right around the corner, there is are going to be a lot of Dilla tributes, romance talk, and black history pride coming our way and this video coincidentally embodies all of the above so I thought it was pretty appropriate to share with you all today.
“Take Our Time” is just the one of the many treasures off Shakka’s Remix Album “The Shakka Crown Affair”. Be sure to check it out and get the free download on his bandcamp
