What I'm Watching: Jinesis "No Regrets" from Otisis (An Otis Redding Beat Tape)

No Regrets (Jinesis cuts his hair off) from Jinesis on Vimeo.

It's like everyone is shedding the dreads. My brother did it earlier this year and now the homie Jinesis sits down in the barber chair for a fresh cut. Jinesis has been featured on the blog several times, including The Mad Bloggers presented Otisis. The dude is a talented producer from New York City and Otisis was our brain child. I'm a lifelong Otis Redding fan and shared a vision with Jinesis and he went well above my greatest expectations in chopping up Redding samples to put together Otisis. On Redding's birthday we cracked a monumental number on downloads over at bandcamp and Jinesis shared with me the news that he was going to cut his hair. I couldn't believe it. I didn't believe it. Not until I saw this video. I hardly recognized him at the end of the vid. I salute the brother and look forward to this next chapter of music. Chea!
Here's a video of me cutting my hair. "So what?" you might say, but my hair was as signature to me as my beats. I locked my hair 10 years ago at the beginning of the summer and at the end of this summer, I "un-locked" my hair. Full circle. Completion. New beginnings. I also did over 5 free beat projects in that time as well as grow personally as much as my shoulder length hair did. In 2012 There will be an actual music project from me to support. I look forward to this new, fresh chapter! Thank for everyone's support and listening ear!
