OMG Jean Grae launched a body roll contest on Christmas!

Here at Axel F HQ, bodyrolling is an essential life skill. It's the frequency at which our souls vibrate. So when Jean Grae launched this body roll contest last night on Christmas, we were probably deep in a yuletide 'itis and brown likka coma. But when we woke up today, we had to spread these tidings of comfort and joy!

Did you buy Jean Grae's #5 project? Of course you did. And if you haven't seen the magnum opus that is the video for "underneathu", remedy that immediately.

Then get some friends. Or just yourself. Because the party doesn't start until YOU bodyroll. Turn that camera on and engage your core muscles. Then undulate. Make sure "underneathu" is playing while you undulate.

Then send the video to Jean Grae at channelgrae (at) gmail dot com and WIN THE WORLD.

We need you, Jean Grae

This is a public plea to Jean Grae to join our merry band of jheri-curled foolishment that performs on an indeterminate basis, aka The Sexual Chocolate Revue fka The Sexual Chocolate Band & Show. Alumni include Phonte, Zo!, Deborah Bond, Navasha Daya, Lady Alma and more. The band will surely come out of semi-retirement if we can snag Ms. JeanGreasy.

Well, according to her new video for "underneathu", her current ensemble is Jean Grae and The Everybody's Pregnant but we can surely make room for them under our Axel F big tent, as long as Kiki the #BodyRollingFlowerBae and her #soulgifts are part of the deal.

So many of our core values are expressed in this video, including:

- public access television
- wanton bodyrolling
- a vaguely S-curled keyboardist
- a guitarist with a pornstache
- leg meats and fishnets
- a sax solo (Zoot, is that you?)

Join us, Jean Grae. We're made for each other.

Axel F VHS (Very High Sound): Good Times Sat. 12/13

Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson or Zo! and Tigallo?

The pop culture nostalgia machine continues to nip at our heels as curators of all that's wonderful about the Axel F era.

Bruno Mars and his collaborator Mark Ronson are the most recent luminaries to dip their toes in that good '80s funk with "Uptown Funk". His nod to The Time makes chronological sense after Mars got his Kool & The Gang On.

What do we think about this one, friends?

Dope or nope?

Smash or pass?

Corny or horny? (the brass section, you freaks)

For comparison, we've got a few Sexual Chocolate Band & Show alums with "We Are On The Move," their fond tribute to The Whispers. Shoutout to Zo!, Eric Roberson and Phonte.
