Funny how race has become an issue again with the Harry Connick Jr.-blackface Jackson Five, French Vogue Magazine cover, Black Dynamite, Spike Lee calling Tyler Perry’s movies coonery and the sister assaulted at a Cracker Barrel in Atlanta because she was a “nigga”.
Wes Felton (aka W. Ellington Felton or Dubell) and Jason Orr (FunkJazz Kafé®/Soul Of Earth) did an album worth of songs and about four videos in four days for Wes’ forthcoming album, “Ellington International”, this is a result of their collaboration.
This is a story about how amazing it is to see Black people compromise their artistic talents in the 21st century to “make it” and subsequently killing our people by being a part of the negative messages and imagery of popular culture.
Another great short film/ video produced and directed by Jason Orr for FunkJazz Kafé /Life Arts Films and Wes Felton for Art! Hurts Film Weapons. “Ya’ll Ain’t Never Seen No Shit Like This” – Wes Felton (A.K.A. W. Ellington Felton or Dubell), is taken from the forthcoming Wes Felton album, “Ellington International” produced with Soul Of Earth (Jason Orr & Craig Love). A fine display of Wes Felton’s talents as a well rounded thespian, singer/MC/actor/film maker/dancer/music producer. These kind of artists are the future of Black music.
