Music Monday: Run DMC- Christmas in Hollis and Christmas is

These are two classic Christmas videos. What I love about the first one is that its one of the first Christmas Hip-Hop records period. It's dope that Lil Lep from New York City Breakers played an elf in the video. The second is cool because it shows Run DMC still around after 8 years doing the dayum thang. Definitely gotta give up props for that. Merry Christmas, everyone!

Yo, Marlon is a crazy mofo! LOL.

President Obama Makes a Statement on the Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut

Man, words cannot even measure the disgust I felt yesterday or even today to be absolutely honest. These heinous shootings have to be stopped, seriously. We must pay attention more to our own neighborhoods. We have to really be aware of some signs people bring to help prevent these major occurrences from happening over and over again. It's just not cool, at all. These were innocent children and adults that were killed in a school system meant for learning and growth. Kids that cannot fulfill their dreams, cannot play outside, tell their parents they love them. They were kids completely stripped of their innocent. It's really amazing how society has gotten so ugly these days. At least back in the day when there killings, people left the kids alone. Not condoning the killing at all. However, I just think to myself, "Who had it so bad to do something so extreme and malicious?" I can only imagine how rough it was for the President to speak to the world on such a serious matter because he is a parent of two children, too. All I can say is hope and pray for the families and friends of the victims who were wrongfully killed. May God have mercy on their souls. Ensure that you show your family, not just your kids or little ones, love. Hug them extra tight this holiday season. Peace and love, y'all!

Dragon Ball Z: Saiyan Saga (Fan Film)

A big shoutout to K8K productions on this tip. I love when like minded people who have the talent and really know storylines are able to produce these incredible fan made films. Time and time again we see Hollywood always destroying our favorite manga and anime series growing up as a kid. However, I won't get into that diatribe as you can read some of my past work here and here. This is what I call clean cut clarity on a shoe string budget. It's amazing what these independent filmmakers can do with literally little to no financial backing. Hollywood, please take notes. This is how you do a Dragon Ball Z movie. Check it out:

Ryan Leslie responds to $1 million verdict at Long Island University Concert

I still remember when R. Les created a video and a tweet regarding the situation. He CLEARLY wanted the material on the laptop! I mean, why would he care about a stinking laptop when he could buy a new one easily. It's the material, it's the music that matters the most. Some people just don't understand how much hard work goes into making quality music ESPECIALLY when you're independent.

Set the stage for your wedding with personalized napkins

Do you have some excellent tables for dining during your reception, but something is missing? Take a look at some personalized napkins to build decorum. Why are personalized napkins great? Whether you make them simple or complex, people always pay attention to detail. Not only do they use it to wipe their hands and faces, but they use it to hold the finger foods: the little veggies, the cookies, the candies. Also, Happy Hour and the Open Bar make these napkins essential to not stain or warm up the glass. These are great amenities to really deck out your wedding!

Nas - Cherry Wine (Explicit) ft. Amy Winehouse (Official Video)

This song and this video here is everything! I really wish that the whole song with the outro was posted because you could tell Amy Winehouse was really singing her heart out. I'm going to post up the whole track in a minute. This is definitely my favorite track out of the whole album. You really think of that special person or that beautiful lady you want to just kick it with..make her a classy drink or sip some wine and kick back and enjoy each other, you know? I'm really glad that Nas was able to make this last track with Amy winehouse because you can tell this is special. The chemistry these two virgo people had is unparalleled. Definitely a good look! Peep the video below:

THE ARENA: EP 1 - MORRIS vs KID DAVID [DS2DIO]

Crazy Legs from the world famous, Rock Steady Crew, just posted this up on Facebook. I heard about a little competition like this, but didn't know it was going to be a little YouTube mini series. Pretty interesting. I'm not really big on mainstream competitions i.e. So You Think You Can Dance (SYTYCD) or America's Best Dance Crew (ABDC), so I'm a little bit hesitant. I think the purpose of this show is really to provide the mainstream audience of what the dance is about. I mean, there were B-Boys on both SYTYCD and ABDC, but I think the fact all three of the judges are b-boys and b-girls that gives it a lot more credibility. SYTYCD is a PRIME example...none of the judges have danced in a cypher. Probably never seen a real b-boy battle in their life, so how can they even have an inkling of judging a cat when they don't even meet the criteria themselves? I honestly don't think this will hurt the dance. In fact, it will show a different side. There are different competitions out there that I truly like such as the Octagon which forces you to be really sharp inside of a 5 foot octagon. You have to not repeat...you have to work your way in and out of the octagon. You have to make sure that you don't step on the boundaries or else you are disqualified. This is a bit more on the time and skill difference. Whatever you are lacking, it will clearly show. You have to keep your moves concise and really show how sharp you are in the amount of time. I kind of dig that. Anyway, enough of my rambling. The judges are Crazy Legs, Asia One, and Abstrak. The contestants are Kid David, Morris, Kid Glyde, El Nino, Gravity, Floor Phantom, Spee-D, and Keebz. If you are a b-boy, you can tell this is a well rounded competition. Enjoy the footage. More to come in the future!

Rest in Peace and Power - Aaliyah Dana Haughton aka Babygirl

You see this picture right here? Not only is this a vinyl record of "If your girl only knew" but it's a PROMOTIONAL copy! So, you already know it's a lot more valuable. In fact, it's one of the most priceless things I own. Anyone that truly knows me can tell you how big of an Aaliyah I am. I've told the story before but basically a week after she passed I was soo distraught because I always wanted to meet her. I did. In my dreams, I was able to see her, hug her, and talk to her in a really deep conversation. Everything felt so real. I never met her in the physical realm, but I did meet her in the spiritual realm. I've never had a dream like that before or after I saw Aaliyah. Here are a few of my favorite videos by Aaliyah! Enjoy!

Lupe Fiasco - Bitch Bad (official video) and commentary from Rap Fix

Lupe Fiasco Such a simple term that's glorified nowadays. Lupe drops his perspective and has a simple yet POWERFUL hook that means a lot. Why settle for being a so called "bad bitch", when you can be a much classier woman, you know? I love the dichotomy and the double entendre that Lupe brings the table regarding the message. A guy doesn't like a bitch...a bitch is bad. However, the so-called bitch thinks that being bad is a good thing. Really interesting how the perception of this is a fantasy, an illusion to the female. Yet, to the male not going for it..it's a reality of something that's not a great thing. Take a look at the video then look at the commentary below the video

Make your wedding special with some excellent wedding cake toppers

So you are your perfect wedding, correct? You have all your family, all your decorations, the music, and the drinks but you are missing something. You are missing the perfect wedding cake toppers. Why is this such a significant part of your wedding? Well, the toppers are the exclamation points to really give your wedding some panache. It is that Kodak moment when you are cutting that first slice of cake and really capturing the beauty and essence of the beginning of matrimony with your spouse. Whether you are into traditions or something unique, get the right topper for you!

Definitely check out Weddingstar to get great wedding decorations

There is nothing like wedding decorations to really set off your special day. When people walk in the room or just go outside to the setting, that's the first thing they notice. Decorations set the tone, set the mood, and give off the vibe in which everyone must follow. Why settle for some boring decorations when you get really put your personality into the mix?

Finding some great wedding decorations for your reception

Drake and producer 40 (Noah Shebib) to executive produce Aaliyah posthumous album

I have to be completely honest right now. I have no idea how well this project is going to come off. In fact, I still haven't listened to the new Aaliyah track with Drake yet. I don't know if I can. I guess that's the big Aaliyah fan in me. She is someone dear to my heart. I mean, when you have a dream like I had with Aaliyah and the conversation that took place, you'll always have a deep spiritual connection that cannot be broken. One thing I will note is that 40 and Drake do have some good ears, so melodically and sonically I think the project has a lot of potential. And also the fact that Timbaland is on board to produce a few tracks and probably Missy Elliott. If they can bring back the old magic and mix it in with the movement they bring for today on some non beef ish, this could work. I'm very hopeful because Aaliyah deserves her music presented in a correct manner. She DESERVES it. I really hope they take their time with this if it does go down. I know Aaliyah's fam does not approve (who can blame them), but if the project comes out very well with the respect, love, care, and genuine heart that Aaliyah possessed - that's all that matters in the end.

DJ Khaled x Justice League: Making of "Hip-Hop" ft Nas & Scarface

I like some DJ Khaled's stuff but this right here puts him on a whole level of respect for me. I can definitely dig this type of song. Justice League x Nas x Scarface x DJ Premier cuttin and scratchin'? WOW! Just wow! Impeccable shit, yo. I'm really hoping this record gets the props it deserves and gets its own video. Seriously. Under the making of video, you can catch the whole track. I might have to see what this "Kiss the Ring" album is all about now. This track is just...I can't even put it into words.

Download the new Nas album "Life is Good" today!

Nas album I know the official Nas release is not until, tomorrow (17th). You can click that and order it, but I had to get the bootleg copy just because I'm that dayum excited! LOL. Trust me, I'm definitely going to support this album. You should, too! It's that dayum good! You can check out the download link here, but PLEASE support REAL Hip-Hop. I'll get into a review of a few tracks I'm really feeling. The Don - definitely one of my fav tracks because Nas is really feelin the vibe and just knows he's in echelon of his own. This is one of the last tracks you get to hear the Jamaican influence of Heavy D for the production. You Wouldn't Understand - I'm really loving the flow on this one. The production sounds like a throwback 80s. Mad smooth and you even hear Nas talk about Fila and Adidas shelltoes, so you know the vibe he's on. Back When - If you aren't familiar with the sample in the beginning, then you aren't Hip-Hop. Point. Blank. Period. As soon as I heard the MC Shan sample, I knew where this track was going. Stay - Smooth, mellow, and relaxing. Something about Nas' flow on jazz tracks just making everything seem so much clearer. I guess it's nurture because his pops, Olu Dara, was a Jazz musician. It's fitting. This is the type of track you need a nice glass of wine to listen to and really take it all in. Cherry Wine - This is a great track. When I saw an interview with Nas and he was talking about this specific song, I told myself I had to hear it. I wanted to wait until the album came out (or near there) so I could hear it in great quality. RIP to Amy Winehouse. Her voice complements this song beautifully. It's a real feel good that makes me want to chill with a beautiful woman and just enjoy life. Bye Baby - It's a good closure song for Nas. I think he was really able to let go and simply let it all out. Honesty is one of the strong things we have in music. It's a courageous thing for Nas to be able to show his validity even with his most personal items.

99 Problems - Barack Obama Spoof via Alphacat

This is straight up hilarious. Really great political satire and theme. I really hope when Boondocks comes back on the air, they use the whole situation with Obama to their advantage. Additionally, the Black Nerd (Andre) makes a cool cameo on this joint. I definitely was not expecting that. Peep the parody below!

Music Monday - "Scratch" - 2001 - turntablism full movie

Another one of the first documentaries I saw relating to Hip-Hop. This is great and gives some good DJ knowledge. A lot of heavy hitters in this film. If you are in the Baltimore area, and you want to have a good time on Thursday night - check out an event called M Effin Thursdays: M Effin Thursdays M Effin Thursdays

Music Monday - "The Freshest Kids: A History Of The B-Boy" (2002)

This is what some people call the B-boy bible. It would go so far as saying that. However, it does give you some pretty good preliminary knowledge of how b-boying came about. This was my first major introduction into the b-boy culture. When I saw this movie, it made me really realize that this is what I wanted to do, not necessarily as a way to make money. It was a really good way to express myself, use my creativity, and break me out of my shell as a person. I've written down some b-boy history on Hubpages, you should check that out, too!

Music Monday/RIP Michael Jackson - Off the Wall album full

Michael Jackson - Off the Wall Michael Jackson was a straight up legend. Plain and simple. The way he touched the heart of billions is something you can never take away. There are people that say people die, don't grieve over them. I can understand that people die, but when they are gone a little too soon and they have an impact on billions of people and you know they've affected your life in more ways than one - how can you say something like that? I'm just keeping it all the way real. I can remember being really young and really loving all of those 90s MJ hits. Well, late 80s to 90s hits. I remember trying to do the backslide (MJ called it the moonwalk which he learned from Jeffrey Daniels) and getting my socks all dirty and what not. Those were some good times, indeed. Here I've posted my favorite MJ album of all time: Off the Wall. Incredible, incredible songs. You talking MJ at his prime right here. Peep it! Click the picture above to purchase the album!

Saturday Night Cinema - The Alpo Story

If you haven't seen Paid In Full, you might want to take a look at that. Cam actually does pretty decent job of portraying Alpo as his character, Rico. Alpo is a dark skinned rican or as NORE says a N**** Rican. It sucks what he did to get at Rich Porter and what not. And all the other things, but he had the role of being the enforcer as well as expanding the Harlem Business into DC. Very interesting story. Check it below:

Does anyone have the same wtf question like I do? I mean, I love Namco Bandai and all but stick to Tekken and Dragon Ball Z! LOL. On the serious tip, I'm really having some ill feelings of how this is going to go down. We shall see, I suppose.

Taken 2 - International Trailer

Shoutout to my homegirl, Meggo. She told me all about this trailer, and I'm rather surprised. I guess I still haven't gotten over the craziness of the first movie that the thought of another...can't believe it. I'm expecting this one to be good as well. Liam Neeson is a pretty good actor. Can't wait to see what they come up with next!

Throwback Thursday - Nas - One Love

Def one of my most fav Nas tracks. Great times.

Battle of the Year: The Dream Team: Press Conference Summer of Sony

This is my first time hearing about this, but I really hope this is a solid movie. I was honestly really skeptical when I heard about this movie in the works last year. However, I have to give it a chance. I know how Hollywood can fuck up a great thing and b-boying is getting overly exploited again. Maybe this film will bring a lil bit more validity to the dance on the mainstream side. Also, I wrote a hub on the Art of B-boying. I'm going to add more things to it soon...

Fat Joe's REAL talk on Health at Rutgers University

If you haven't heard by now, Fat Joe lost nearly 100 pounds. You can really see how much leaner he looks and how much younger and vibrant his vibe is...it's a great thing. I never really struggled with weight like that, I looked pretty lean and in shape, but I could never get my body to where I wanted. Before I turned 25, I decided to really start changing my diet. Starting eating more but much smaller meals...drink a lot more water..cut out the fruit juices or keep it to a minimum....cut out soda....and drink even more green tea. I really feel like I'm in the best shape of my life. I get a lot of compliments from my friends and they say, yo...you don't look a day past 21. Hell, I even had my own family members thinking I look less than 21. It's definitely in the genes but eating well and drinking a lot of water and tea HELPS considerably. Also, the fact that my father and my mother BOTH have diabetes, I was like "I love you guys, but that is damn sure NOT going to be me.."...i'm not taking high blood pressure pills and getting insulin and diabetes...you can forget it. I'm still at my peak metabolism...I'm still active..now I just have to turn it overdrive and make sure I eat well. If this clip does not inspire you to make some proper changes in your life, then something is the matter with you. Seriously. Peep it!

Use Manitoba carpenters for your home/business convenience

Manitoba carpenters provide quality service to just about any kind of venue you can think of using. For example, if you had a home that needed some interior details, you could use Manitoba carpenters for your shelves, your furniture, and your carpets to really change your home around. Just imagine if you had a construction site or a big project, they can provide the type of work you need for a large scale project. They can develop counters, walls, ceilings and the like for your restaurant or office. Whether the job is large or small, they can handle it all!

You can also make your own topper to fit your wedding.

G.O.O.D. Music Is A Movement

I have to really agree with the title of this video. G.O.O.D. Music has really been holdin it down since 2005. The start was Kanye, John Legend, Consequence, GLC, and Common. Now, it's expanded to Big Sean, Pusha T, and Cyhi Da Prince. The thing that's always impressed me about the movement is that each person within this movement has a movement on their own. I mean, Common - c'mon..he has fans since the early 90s and now with his television and movie career taking off - that's even more fans. Big Sean has gained a reputation by working with some really big name artists and having two smash hits under his belt. He has a flow that's a bit different, and a lot of people say that he invented the Hash Tag style (Twitter). Everyone has an extraordinary talent whether it's writing, emceeing, or production. You can't fake on this clique as a whole. Check out the clip below:

Interesting Infographic: Map of New York's Hip-Hop Scene

Shoutout to Fast Co Design for this infographic. I like where they are going with this, but it is pretty incomplete. When you talk about Hip-Hop, you can't just say Rap or the DJ. You have to mention the embodiment! I don't see anything correlating to any graffiti or b-boy crews. In fact, the graff writers and the b-boy crews were the most influential because no one was really getting the DJs or the emcees just yet. They understood art and writing and dancing. Well, if you want to know about B-Boying and B-Boy crews, you can check out my hub (that's still in the works) called "The Art of B-boying" To get a good idea of what I'm talking about where all of the elements are represented in one, I'll post a good video. A classic video. KRS-One - Step Into a World, Rappers Delight: The Remake, and of course - the classic Lords of the Underground track - Chief Rocka! Enjoy! Hip-Hop all day! Man, I'll even throw in the Puffy Remix to Step Into a World! LOL. Hey, it's still dope! Here are some classic albums NY albums you can purchase:

the.LIFE Files TV: Nas On President Obama, Lauryn Hill & Hip Hop In 2012

Another interesting Nas interview he breaks down his views on President Obama, Lauryn Hill, Mixtapes, and his own album, "Life is Good" slated for release on July 17, 2012. Enjoy! Don't forget to view his other part of the interview regarding his daughter and other topics. If you haven't seen the Summer Jam performance with Nas and Lauryn Hill rocking on stage together, check out below the interview for Nas' set at Hot 97.

Music Monday: Aaliyah - At Your Best (You are Love)

As everyone knows, I'm a huge fan of Aaliyah fan. "At Your Best" amongst others is one to calm me down when I'm really down and out. Troubling times for the past few weeks, but a special someone has held me down quite a bit. Even though we did not speak to each other for a minute, she comes through when I truly need it. That's what counts. That's why at her best, she's love. Same way as a Aaliyah. She might be gone, but her spirit is eternal. The video is the remix to the song, which is cool. But I honestly prefer the original...just that melody and her angelic voice. It's an exceptional piece of work. So, let's watch the video and hear the original! Enjoy! Oh yes, also check out the Music Monday on my Playstation blog today...throwback for Tekken 2!

LIVING THE LIFE (LA TO MIAMI 2012)

It's another Living the Life from Jermaine Dupri. I always love watching these because he's one of the first people to really do the whole behind the scenes thing. Everything from his travels, his artists, working with other artists, producing, mixing, and even the spots he DJs. If you haven't seen any of the Living the Life shows, you should check out the one with Kevin Hart. It's pretty hilarious. JD is also a brand representative for Crown Royal Black, so you can check out the 1414 tour on my other blog.

Link (Electric Force) and Popin Pete (Electric Boogaloos)

This is a really, really dope clip. You pretty much get to see the evolution of street dance from 1970 up until dance now. A lot of cool comparisons and a lot of cool flavors rolled into one. I love the fact that Link can appreciate the older styles and you can see the vibe in his dance. I love how Pete embraces the youth and you can even catch him still practicing and going into dance class. Very humbling even when he's an authority on dance. Check out the clip, you might get a few things. Peace! Oh yeah, I wrote a hub yesterday on the Art of B-boying. I'm no where near done but I think I did a decent job explaining the dance in its basic format. Enjoy!

Affion Crockett - Watch The Clone Vlog1

Hilarity will ensue! I guarantee it. This man has the BEST parodies online imho. I really think he has a gift that extends beyond just the comedy. I mean, doing impressions of rappers and producers, he kinda figured out the trigger between the two. If you haven't seen any of his parodies, you can check my Home Business blog talking about YouTube marketing and impressions. Also, you can check out some work he did Russell Simmons called "Hustle with Russells". If you haven't purchased the real "Watch the Throne" album, go post and check out the videos as they might give you something to look at! Otis N****s in Paris Mercy

the.LIFE Files TV: Nas Talks Life, The Best Wines & Daughters

Really good interview. After seeing what Nas had to deal with for the past two years after a difficult marriage, tax problems, a kidnapping of a promoter, and his daughter's Twitter craziness...I have to say Nas is a real G for being where he's at right now. Calm, cool, collected, and happy! All around it's a great, great combo. In life we all go through some seriously tough times, but it should never break us (at least not permanently) because when you get to the bottom all you can do is really rise to the top of the ladder. The songs that I'm hearing from Nas really says something that he's elevated in a way not only lyrically, but emotionally/spiritually. When you are that focused and that calm with you and your life, it definitely helps you focus. Major kudos to Nas. Check out the interview, you may learn a few things about him that you didn't know like his favorite wine! LOL. Speaking of wine, you can check out this wine mix I made called the Blakroc Chablis! Check below for his latest video: Daughters!

Kanye West ft Big Sean, Pusha T, and 2 Chainz - Mercy (Explicit)

Man, I love the steez on this "Mercy" track. The beat isn't even all that complicated but the screwed up hook and the sample of the "Dust a Sound Boy" by Super Beagle is just dope. That's honestly what caught me the first time I heard the song. I was like this is definitely a sample of an old reggae song. I can hear it. And I see that my ears did not deceive me! This track has been bubbling for over 2 months now, so it's no surprise that it got gold status without a video. But here it is!!! Also, if you haven't already seen it - Ye and Jay did a video for "No Church In the Wild". That'll be posted right under this joint! You can buy both tracks on Amazon. I'll have them posted below.

E3 2012 - Nintendo Wii U In Gameplay - Zombies Skit

With all this hoopla over Zombies (people trippin' off strong A** drugs in the recent news) even in my area, Maryland, I'm really not even shocked that this footage is up right now! LOL. On a more serious note, this footage actually shows off some of the more social aspects of Nintendo Wii U Controller. Pretty good stuff. Just imagine if there was a Zombie Apocalypse and technology still worked for a great amount of time. The Wii U would definitely hold you down in emergencies (if your friends had it..LOL). Good stuff. Oh yes, check out my post yesterday on Nintendo's Direct Pre E3 2012 footage and pictures!

Music Monday - C.A.T. ft Chii by Zig-Zag starring Onslaut

Here is something you call the ingredients for a classic. Who can deny the cover alone? I mean, you have Cory and Topanga. Anybody who grew up in the 90s (Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, Green, Red, Purple, Nurple) knows that this was the CLASSIC love story. Two people that started off as two weird opposites that eventually developed a great friendship and became great lovers. Not lovers in the sense of pure intimacy, but lovers in the sense of they really had this great endearing love for one another. The track is memorable with a beat laced that's not too complex, but just right so you can really focus on what the song is saying. The smooth ambiance and synths in the track definitely give you the vibe you need to just relax and mellow out. The hook is simple but really catchy playing off with a dab of autotune. It's a tasteful and not enough to bombard the track. Zig-Zag did a great job with the production and the hook/chorus. Onslaut was spot on with some smooth lyrics that really got to the point of kinda serenading a girl he might be talking to. With great images and references to past shows of that time period, you definitely can reminisce and relate to this track growing up in that era. Good stuff, overall. Check out the track below. Follow Zig-Zag on Twitter for more work and shenanigans.

T.I. talks about Trouble Man album and parenting advice for Jay-Z

To be honest, I think a lot of people need to hear what T.I. has to say. It's true that's he been in and out of jail for quite sometime. However, I feel that he has really tried to put that dark side away for good. He's cultivated an album titled "Trouble Man". I think people are really ready to hear a more aggressive, spirited T.I. like back in the day. That's why I can appreciate a record like "Flexin" with Big K.R.I.T. because it reminds me of the old "Dope Boys" record. Also, I definitely love the fact that he gives fatherly advice to Jay. I mean, T.I. has 6 kids! He would have a lot of great answers and great advice to give Jay! This is some good stuff! Check it out:

Minecraft Cocktail (The Dirt Block) via TipsyBartender

This is what I call an excellent dessert cocktail. The Drunken Moogle comes up with some really unique yet excellent tasting video game cocktails. This is no exception at all. When you have Oreos and Kahlua together, you are bound to make some magic happen! LOLOL.

Here's the recipe:
=======
1 1/2 oz french vanilla kahlua
1 1/2 oz amaretto
3 oz chocolate milk
Oreo cookie crumbs

As you can see this is a pretty impeccable mix of chocolate. I honestly wouldn't drink this on a night on the town, but probably a party or an alternative to a crazy dessert on a special day. For more, video game cocktails you can check out my blog Playstation 3 Game Console Review for a Modern Warfare 3, Uncharted 3, and Street Fighter x Tekken cocktail. ENJOY!

Timbaland talks about creating "Are you that somebody"

I'm not a producer by any means, but I love hearing behind the scenes stories such as this especially when it involves Aaliyah (RIP Baby Girl). "Are you that Somebody?" is one of my favorite Aaliyah tracks. In fact, I think it is my favorite. Everything from the video, the looks, the dances, the matches in choreography to the little details in Timbo's track (who creates break downs in tracks these days?). I'll let Timbo tell the story. Also, check out the video for "Are you that somebody?" and Timbo's new hit, "Break ya back" featuring Dev. Enjoy!

STAY SLEEPING BTS CIPHASOUNDS ROSENBERG VINNY FROM JERSEY SHORE

Wow, when you get a whole bunch of funny white boys in one video, the turn out can be rather hilarious. LOLOL. I have to say this is pretty dayum funny from the song, the video concept (pajamas, beds), and just the light take on the song. Very very funny. Enjoy!

Jay-Z and Kanye West - Ni**as in Paris (Explicit)

This is a pretty interesting concept video. A lot of epilepsy will probably be involved. Too many lights!! LOLOL. This is not the type of video you wanna watch if you have a weak stomach or horrible eyes...lol. Check it out. Oh yeah, Ni**as in Paris is officially a 2 million seller. Talk about a major hit without a video, now I can only imagine how high it climbs the charts. You can purchase it for 99 cents at Amazon. Enjoy the video!

Step Up 4: Exclusive Trailer

Yup, yup. They've spout out another one of these. LOL. I'm not really big on these sequels, but the fact that it's in Miami, and there are a lot of dancers in here I like, I'll support in some way. Thinking of the bigger picture. Anyway, peep it.

Big Boi "Crown Life" Europe Tour

See, now this is something I'm looking forward to doing when I get older. When I get my blogging tip on point, all I want to do is travel the world, do my work behind a computer, and take in the culture. Living life is incredible. I don't need much: a beautiful scene, great music, dancing, fun, a lil bit of drinks, and that's it. You can clearly see that Big Boi isn't worried about selling a bajillion records. I mean, if I did 200 shows a year, I wouldn't care either!! That's a lot of guap! LOLOL. Crown Royal Black is not a bad drink, either. I'm starting to have an appreciation for dark liquor. Speaking of liquor, check out my blog called Great Cocktail Recipes. At any rate, check out some of the Globetrotting that Big Boi does.



Busta Rhymes ft Chris Brown - Why Stop Now

Not too shabby at all. I think this is a good first single off Busta Rhymes' new album. He has the same kind of chemistry like he did on Chris Brown's 2011 top charting single, "Look at Me Now". With Hype Williams as the director, the video catches some of the essence of Busta Rhymes' real spit fire flow. Peep it!

Waka Flocka ft Drake Round of Applause video (Behind the Scenes)

Normally, I'm not really for this kind of music, but this is my guilty pleasure song! LOLOL. In all sincerity, it's the beat, the hook, and some bad females go off to this track. It's a fun song. Check the behind the scenes below:

Jay-Z Feat. Blue Ivy Carter (B.I.C.) - Glory

Rarely do you see Jay really in his feelings like this...I know he had to definitely air his feelings out of blessings and accomplishment for finally having his own child with Beyonce after she unfortunately had a miscarriage in 2006. It's the things you go through that really make you the strong or weak person. It's a very touching, and real track. Simply stating facts and love. I know your kid will definitely appreciate this when she gets older. Perfect way to bring in the year. Congrats to Jay and Beyonce. Check out the song below! Enjoy!

Aunt Carol dancing to Usher

I posted this on Tumblr earlier, and I'm really trying to get this vid viral because this mature woman can outdance a lot of people! LOL. This video has been up for a year and only had 300 views! I don't know how I stumbled upon this video earlier, but I do know that looked back at the views and moved up to 10,000+ LOL. She definitely did her thing in this video. I'm pretty sure this is going to be shown on the news, Jimmy Fallon, or some kind of show in the next couple of weeks. Check it out! Usher's "You Make Me Wanna" from the classic My Way album!
