Nice video of Idle Warship unfurling its freak flag at World Cafe Live in Philly for a nice leisurely cruise through “Steady”; The Eurythmics interpolation “Sweet Dreams” and “Black Snake Moan.” Beaucoups respects to Reel Black TV for the video, beaucoups respect to Res + Talib Kweli for the jams. As a bonus prize check out the quotes from OKP homegirl dream hampton‘s Q&A with Res (after the jump) and read the full interview over at L+T.
dh: What’s your favorite Idle Warship song?
Res: I love singing period. But my favorite song song to sing is “Steady” into “Sweet Dreams.” That was the first official Idle Warship song me and Kweli ever wrote for the group!
dh: How do you define success?
Res: Success for me is being able to make the music I want to make. I came out with a lot of people who i know for a fact aren’t making the music they started out wanting to make. For me, sticking to my guns, working with the people I want to work with, being able to be creative and free and make a living, and get people’s respect – that’s success. I either get people who don’t know my music or me and that’s fine, or I meet people who really love what I do, I never get a lukewarm response, which I love.
