Damon Dash / Smoke DZA / Lo / Alex Estevez / Evaanz - This Is Why I'm Here
"This Is Why I'm Here" (2014 BluRoc Records) a song produced, recorded and mixed by Ben The Glorious Bastard with a video premiered on Complex.com.
"Dame Dash drops a new song and video in "This Is Why I'm Here," a spontaneous collaboration with Smoke DZA, Lo, Alexandra Estevez, and Evaanz. The Dash-directed clip is set in his own Dish & Dash restaurant in Dumbo, which also has recording equipment in the lounge area. While playing instrumentals, the group was inspired by this particular beat and went to work, capturing a magical energy that is visible on camera. Dame has had a very busy 2014 thus far, recording music, calling out "culture vultures," launching his restaurant, and dropping "Real Talk" on Complex. Needless to say, he's not going away anytime soon."
