Yesterday on our Twitter we got some nice podcast suggestions, most of which were Hip-Hop oriented — shout out to all the heads out there that support B/D. To extend on the topic, I thought it would be nice to highlight the talented Steve Smith (an illustrator, animator, and all around video guy). Steve recently put together a short animated flick for the Stones Throw video contest, more specifically for the late great, J Dilla. Smith’s video for the classic Donuts cut “Geekdown” has been getting an insane amount of rotation since last weeks release, so if you haven’t checked it out yet do yourself a favor.
