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!

The interesting thing about this Wii U TV Remote is it acts a television, Web Browser and L3 and R3 buttons. It's basically a multi-functional virtual remote control in your hands!
This is perfect for playing games and reminds you have the traditional D-Pad controller.
