Its Jay Z birthday yall. New York's favorite rapper turns 42 today, and he is still going strong. He is still at the top at this age so I guess it save to say Jay is never going to leave the game. His head stone is going to say R.T.D (rapper till death).
As I thought Tyga released a little something to hold his fans over till the album. I still think his "Last King" album is being released on the 20th of this month so keep a lookout for that. Haven't had a chance to really listen and dissect the tape, but what I heard so far sounds good. Its kind of classic Tyga; if your a fan you know what I mean
I love this guys music, but this album is taking him forever to released. He change the release date about 3 times. He releases mixtapes to keep his fans happy, but we want the good stuff. It's all good I can be a patient. It's supposed to drop on the dec. 20(niece's birthday) hopefully he doesn't push it back.
This was the best album I bought this year. I expected nothing less from Wale. The artist he chose to do collaborations with were fantastic. I loved every song on this album, including the tracks that he put out for the ladies. I'm proud of the development in his flow and the way he delivers his lyrics. I really don't have any advice or warnings. Rarely do I say the words, "Perfect Album", but that's what this was to me, "A Perfect Album". So if you haven't bought it buy it. NOW!!!
So I heard 50 cent signed Pauly D to G-unit. Honestly it was a shock to me, but I expect nothing less than greatness from 50. He is into everything. Pauly is apparently working in the dance(house) and pop music. There has also some talk of a Pauly D headphone which will be releasing soon, so keep a look out for that. To all you guys who thought Pauly D would do nothing after Jersey Shore seems as though you were wrong. Between his alleged upcoming MTV spin-off and this huge deal with 50 makes his future seem bright. Can't wait to see whats next.
Anyone who knows me know I'm a big supporter of Mac Miller. When I heard his mixtape "Kids" he immediately gained the privilege of being of my top 10 rappers. Needless to say I was kind of disappointed with his album. It wasn't a bad album but I think that for a debut album you should go much harder. Now I like a total of 6 songs on his album the rest of the tracks were ok. Normally I would consider that a decent cd, but for your first album you need to make me love at least 12 of the 16 tracks you made. Some of his rhyme flow didn't really fit smoothly with the beat. I don't know if he was experimenting or what, but that was only on 2 songs. I love the fact that he always have at least 1 song with a old school beat(with a twist). Considering that he put out a good(not great) mixtape on black Friday gave him a little slack room. I will always love a be a supporter of mac but I just expected more from Blue Slide Park.
I had surgery 2 weeks ago and because of the extreme amount of pain I did not post this but i will not be posting any new things for more weeks. It was major ankle surgery so I am in so much pain and I am doped up on oxycotten and volume, so i diagnose myself incapable of writing. When i do come back ( 2 weeks) I will be giving you my thoughts on 2 new albums i will have, mac millers - Blue Slide Park (which is in the mail on its way to my house), and Wale- Ambition (which I already have thanks to pre-order). Make sure you get the albums and read my new post on them in 2 weeks.
I cant get this song out of my head. Its an amazing song so i don't mind. Freaking awesome. Oh, the girl in the video looks like an older version of my neighbor. I didn't know this but he is also the guy who did the "One Tree Hill" theme song. Ha ha, Owe that one to my cousin
Ricky Rosay had me scared when I heard about his two seizures. Apparently he had 2 seizures on the same day and both where while he was flying. The reasons for the seizures are unsure. Though he is a big dude I doubt it was because of his weight, because seizures have more to do with electric activity in the brain than it has to do with weight. The two accidents still didn't stop him from getting to the grand opening of Wing Stop in Memphis. Hey if you hungry you got to eat... Anyway I'm glad he is ok cause to many people whose important to me has died recently TOO MUCH TO HANDLE
Red Cafe- Fly Together, ft. Rick Ross and Ryan Leslie
I've wanted to blog about this for a while now but the music video just came out. The Boss, Rick Ross, and amazing vocalist Ryan Leslie got together on Red Cafe new single "Fly Together", I consider this song a smash. Once it hits the radio its going to BLOW!!! The ladies are going to love it because of Ryan, and Rick Ross and Red Cafe dropped ill rhymes for the fellas. The video was amazing; it was definitely worth the wait. So please, please, please go check it out.
As im sure you guys already know but if you dont our residential bad ass T.I is out of his half-way house and back to work. His new album no mercy is alright. If your a T.I fan you will love it. At one point i use to love his music but all his in and out of jail escapades made me fall off. One thing i like from an artist is consistency and with this guy its uncertain. The upside to this is that he did a track featuring Big K.I.R.T (who i love). the song is called "Im Flexin" and thats available on itunes so check it out.....
****oh i almost forgot umm T.I is going to be on www.ustream.com in 2 days that means Thursday at 5:00 pm... if you guys want me to do a post on what he says leave comments!!!!
Wale single "lotus flower boom" is now available on itunes. but honestly you should just wait and get the album "Ambition" comes out in like 3 weeks on the 1st. but if you cant wait for this single check out itunes
yea so fabolous has made a vid for his song ''Riesling and Rolling Papers'' its a decent song umm it off his mixtape called "the soul tape" be sure to look in to that. the vid is all black and white i guess he was keeping the classic theme he did for the mixtape. of course it has a beautiful girl in it and there like chillin on the beach unfortunately no one on youtube has the vid yet, but i have a link so check it out courtesy of xxlmag.com
well this is new news to me. so big sean who is an super great artist has a series of shirts. the design seems nice but designs are not the only thing nessary to make a good quality tee. I dont own one so i cant give you personal decriptions on the product. but like i said it looks great and he is a fashionable guy so i have no doubt he knows the importance of quality and design.
so every artists have there little hussle, so Chris Webby is an artist i just started to like. ive known he was out there for like 2 years but i just never look in to it. It turns out he has his own like mini store, he sells stuff like close and accessories. Thats cool, but it starts to get weird... he sells his own condoms i mean i guess thats not a bad thing, n i can honestly say i dont know any other artist doing that. At first i thought it looked a little desperate but now i consider it unique and it has potential to be something big... umm if you guys are looking for some of his work his most recent mix tape is called " Webster's Laboratory", you can find it at datpiff.com o and in case you are wondering, Yes he loves cartoons. on his website he also has a mixtape for sale so feal free to buy it.
yea so check it out!! Wayne did a track(remix) with joe jonas and the track was so hot it unbelievable. i wasn't a big fan of any of the jonas brothers they are just alright to me, but i really liked the track. go check it out immediately
oh yea i had a link to the song but unfortunately they have all been removed due to copy write infringement laws, so sorry i wont be able to post it, but i wish you well on your hunt for the song.
wale album is now available for preorder. i don't have much to say but i have been waiting for wale to make a independent album for an extremely long time. i do advise you to preorder it because not only will you be the first to own the album but he also have some nice bundle items(u can never go wrong with bundle items). yea I'm kinda looking forward to the ambition bracelet it looks sick!!!
Still soaring over the success of the "Watch The Thrown", a collab album of jay z and kanye, kanye has recently released his spring 2012 fashion collection, and its strictly for the ladies. Of course he chose to do a premier fashion showcase in what i consider his second home... Paris!!! honestly he chose the best place, HELLO fashion capital of the world... tho i wont be wearing any of the items i found them very interesting. the thing i like about kanye's line is that its unique. most of the designers go for something bland, but kanye line had spark. it seems to me that he is giving a little class to urban fashion, and thats a good thing. i really like the fact that most of the items can be easily matched with other items in a ladies closet but still have a stand out shine of there own. when designers get real colorful with designs its hard to match it with other outfits. however i don't feel like that with most of the items kanye has shown.
Wale "lotus flower" ft Miguel, is a decent song i believe its for the ladies. Miguel is a great singer, and wale will always do his thing. but this is not actually on of my favs but its still a good song. would recommend for ladies slow jams.
so this is going to be really short. so mac miller remixed the maroon 5 and christina aguilera collab "moves like jagger" which was already a great song but having mac on it was like a added bonus(at least for me)
Two fav artist of this blog have done an super collab i actually wanted to post this about 3days ago but school was crazy. ever since bob came on the scene i liked him automatically, his lyrics are unique and he also have a very good vocabulary which is always good for an artist to have. to add even more power to this incredible song he put wayne one it, n wayne it the type to murder nething he gets on. but at the same time i think when he gets new beats, or hear unique beats, i think he pushes out just a little more of his talent and go extra hard. i couldn't find the vid i don't think its out yet but i cant wait, i just know bob is going to do something crazy with it....
Birdman taps the YMCMB kiddies for his next single, "Y U mad", im only mentioning it because of wayne and nicki minaj,but yea birdmans on it too; after all it is his single... neway his new album; Bigger than life drops on november 23rd, its a cool track look it up on youtube or check it out on itunes
i know something you should know. the Olsen twins little sis, it came as a surprise to me but alot of people don't know her, some people didn't even the Olsen twins had a sister. If you didn't know let me be the first to introduce you to her this is Elizabeth, she is making a name making a name for herself and, if i may say so, setting herself apart from her sisters legacy. having already done 5 movies; she has recently been named the cover girl for the October issue of Nylon mag. also she has a big upcoming movie filled with a very talented young cast, she will be acting along zac efron and dakota fanning(a fav of mine). so be on the watch for her. i wish you continued success..
bow wow and Chris brown are back with another one. personally bow wow is not one of my favorite artist but he is decent. Chris on the other hand... yea he is just a monster!!! the first time i heard him rap i said to my self, " i hope he continues". one of if not the only singer who is more than good enough to rap and sing. i love this track it is a good collaboration. those to make a good team.
now i cant really classify his style/genre of music, and that's not a bad thing i actually prefer it, but when i listen to him, i feel a vintage vibe. his videos always seem to have some 70s 80s feel to them, the names of his songs are always unique. the only down side to his music is that i cant listen to it whenever i want to; i always have to be in the right mood.
Drakes new album "Take Care" ∆DEEN!: what the..yo drake you good? This has to be the most depressing Album cover i have ever seen, But never judge an album by its cover, this highly anticipated album is on its way... but the album art leaves fans wondering. Guess we will have to wait for next month too see if drake has gone weird on us. Personally i think he is just experimenting with the cover. Who knows it might work out for the best.
Vesta Williams R&B artist(more like diva) 1957-2011
she was found dead at 6:15 pm thursday in an El segundo hotel room, best known for her hit "Dont Blow a Good Thing", she was an amazing vocalist. she died at the age of 53. Its a dark feeling when a good artist dies.
so rick ross's maybach music group is supposed to be on the cover of XXL magazine's October issue. I'm not sure if this is the official cover pic; i think this is just a behind the scene look. still a great pic; expect a lot out of all these guys.
(left to right), Phil, Meek Mill,rick ross, Wale.(rick ross is wearing two gold jesus pieces).
this is a new artist or at least to me she is, today was the first time i heard of her. but i am officially in love!!! her name is Kim Walker... her song reveals the magic in God. and thats a lot coming from me cause i usually dont like christian music but im always open to new things
