Video: Theophilus London – I Stand Alone + Gigamesh remix

September 2nd, 2011 by | Music Video |

My all-time favorite song from Theophilus London has been made into a music video! Although we lost some interest after seeing Theophilus London live, he still makes quality music and I wouldn’t be surprised if he achieves similar success to Kid Cudi in the future.

“I Stand Alone” is a song that deserves radio play which will probably happen once HBO’s How To Make It In America begins. Most of the promo’s for the show have included this song, and just as Entourage introduced the world to Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite”, HTMIIA will do the same for “I Stand Alone.”

Review: Theophilus London at Amoeba Music Hollywood

July 21st, 2011 by | Concert/Festival Review, Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, Reviews |

As you know, I have been looking very forward to Theophilus London‘s debut album Timez Are Weird These Days to drop and after it finally did, I heard of a free show that he was going to do at the infamous Amoeba record store in Hollywood and I had to attend. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in his performance for many reasons. He seemed way more into how he looked than the way he performed on stage. There were many times where you couldn’t even hear him rapping and singing. The instrumentals were way too loud that it covered up his voice. He appeared to be on lots of drugs because he could barely stand and speak. As a matter of fact there was a moment when he stopped a song half way through and started another one. There were also times when he just let his song play out and he just stood there. Pretty odd if you ask me.

Not all of it was his fault though. It was in a record store and not a legitimate music venue which means the sound quality and stage set up were not the best. Also he had been promoting his album all week on talk shows, music venues and many more which means he was likely very worn out and just needed a rest.

Besides all of this, I still really enjoy his album and think it will be very successful. I do feel that he needs to work on his stage presence a lot better though if he wants to remain in the music business for the long term. However, I guess I cannot be too upset considering it was a free show. Check out some of my favorite tracks that he performed. Enjoy!

“I Stand Alone”

“Last Name London”

“Why Even Try”
