Birdman featuring Rick Ross, Lil Wayne, and Jeezy - Always Strapped (Remix)

Kanye West Featuring Mr. Hudson - Paranoid Starring Rihanna

So here's the video for one of my favorite joints off808's and Heartbreak. The Video is basically an ode to Rihanna, which is not necessarily a bad thing. She's sexy, and comes off as a good (physical) actress. As for whether she can really act...

DAYUM - Pitbull Knocks Dude out On stage

LOL @ him going right back into the song after he decks dude. Apparently the audience member through money in his face, disrespecting him. See for yourself:

Beastie Boys Featuring the Roots - Whatcha Want? (LIVE)

For what Jimmy Fallon lacks as a host on Late Night, he sure does have a great band in the Roots. Their ability to play anything with anyone is cool as hell. Here they are again with The Beastie Boys, who got that old head swag.

Charles Hamilton Knock Out

Charles Hamilton getting knocked out by his "oh-girl"


This is what he had to say:

First, I can't escape how I feel about Briana. I opened my heart to her, and we spiraled where we spiraled. I'm glad that matters of the heart (and fist) is public entertainment (as said with sarcastic smirk), but the fact of the matter is, I LOVE TO NO END. I'm the kind of person that, I told her to hit me HARDER next time. Knock me the f*ck out. I deserved it. I mean, that punch was on behalf of... lol... every Charles Hamilton ex-girlfriend, every rapper I sh1tted on, every teacher that I f*cked with, every cop I harassed... I deserved such abuse.

...and an apology

Better Than "Birthday Sex" (R&B)

If you've heard me speak about music recently, you prolly know I think that "Birthday Sex" by Jeremih is wack. Sorry, not on that bandwagon. But that doesn't mean dude is wack as an artist. Peep this "Raindrops" track.

We Are Lasers

Saw this on Lupe's Myspace. I'm excited about this album:


To Every Man, Woman & Child...

1. We Want An End To The Glamorization Of Negativity In The Media.

2. We Want An End To Status Symbols Dictating Our Worth As Individuals.

3. We Want A Meaningful And Universal Education System.

4. We Want Substance In The Place Of Popularity.

5. We Will Not Compromise Who We Are To Be Accepted By The Crowd.

6. We Want The Invisible Walls That Separate By Wealth, Race & Class To Be Torn Down.

7. We Want To Think Our Own Thoughts.

8. We Will Be Responsible For Our Environment.

9. We Want Clarity & Truth From Our Elected Officials Or They Should Move Aside.

10. We Want Love Not Lies.

11. We Want An End To All Wars. Foreign & Domestic (Violence).

12. We Want An End To The Processed Culture Of Exploitation, Over-Consumption & Waste.

13. We Want Knowledge, Understanding & Peace.


Lasers are the opposite of losers. Lasers are shining beams of light that burn through the darkness of ignorance. Lasers shed light on injustice and inequality. Losers stand by and let things happen. Lasers act and shape their own destinies. Lasers find meaning and direction in the mysteries all around them. Lasers stand for love and compassion. Lasers stand for peace. Lasers stand for progression. Lasers are revolutionary.
Lasers Are The Future.

We're Not Losers...We Are L.A.S.E.R.S.!!!

Love Always Shines Every-time Remember 2 Smile!

For Throwback Thursday I'm hitting y'all with a mixtape I've been anticipating from Slaughterhouse Rapper Joell Ortiz. My man goes in on everything from "U.N.I.T.Y" and "T.R.O.Y." to "Mass Appeal" "Children's Story" and "Get Money".

My favorite tracks up here are the last "Renee's Revenge" and the last 4 tracks, but everything on here is crack. He does a classic track from every cassette on the cover.

Here are some Hip Hop songs about mothers:

Dear Mama - Tupac:

Kanye West - Hey Mama Live

Ghostface Killah - All That I Got is You

Jay-Z - Blueprint (Momma Loves Me) (skip to 38)

Love you Mom!

Sometimes you just gotta cut your losses...

Nick Cannon is upset! Eminem went in on Him and Mariah Carey on his new track "Bagpipes From Baghdad"

Well Nick won't havin that. Below is a book length post from his blog talking about destroying Em.

"Well, well, well. Fresh off the plane with my wife from our second honeymoon on the beautiful secluded islands of the Maldives and what do I find in my email box? A mediocre (at best) Eminem record that sounds like it was written in 2001. At first I thought it was old material that had been dug up from when dude “fantasized” about having a pretend fling with Mariah. I was thinking to myself, “Hey that was before me so it is really none of my business, so I’m going to give him a pass.”

So as I continued to semi enjoy Marshall’s rhyme scheme and flow, I mean let’s be honest dude used to be incredible. He was a witty lyrist with dope delivery and timing. Some even say, one of the best to ever do it. I had nothing but respect for this dude. But all of a sudden I hear my name in the verse! My first reaction was like, “This is his new shit??? Wow, that’s too bad…” Then I felt sorry for him because he must really be stuck in the past. Not only has his music not evolved, but also homeboy is still obsessed with my wife, the same female that wouldn’t let him get to second base from 8 years ago! He even describes his desperate lameness in this bad excuse for storytelling track. That’s some real middle school shit right there! (What type of grown ass man lies about getting with a chick) Only Slim Lamey! LOL!

So as I further examine the track, I hear dude cross the line. He begins to call my wife out of her name! Now as y’all know, I don’t take that type of nonsense lightly. So on some grown man shit I’m instantly like, I got to get at this Lame. I know it’s only entertainment and I’m all for freedom of speech. But I’m from the school of thought where if you are tough enough to talk shit, you got to be tough enough to deal with the consequences that come with tough guy shit talking! Then the little angel on my shoulder said, “No Nicholas, there is no need to play into his negativity. He is just a troubled soul yearning for the lost spotlight. You must be Christ like and turn the other cheek”

But then the dude on the other shoulder said, “ What Nigga?! Is you scared?! You can’t let no man ever disrespect your wife! Especially not some Peroxide drenched homophobic has-been! This is like some Paquiao vs. Hatton shit! He is underestimating you with his ass out and you can drop him in the first round!”

Then, without listening to either one of the voices on my shoulders, I analyzed the situation from a logical perspective. Am I going to battle Eminem and try to out rap him? No, that would be stupid. The dude is nice on the mic. Even though nowadays he lacks substance, rapping about when he used to be hot. Like when Al Bundy gloats about his High school football prime.

Then I asked myself should I go find this Bitch and just whoop his little ass? But that might have just been the Creatine and protein shakes talking! LOL. Even though most people don’t know that I’m nice in the ring and have been training in boxing and Martial Arts for years that would just be childish and silly of me to bully this dude. He clearly has been picked on all his life and I would hate to add to his deep-rooted pain. As we all know he has had a hard life and has major insecurity issues and is very confused and unhappy with himself. So a guy like that doesn’t really need another ass whoopin, he needs a hug. We should really pray for his troubled heart.

So just when the good guy in me is about to emerge and shine through, something hits me… Something bigger than rap beefs, something bigger than jealousy infused insults, something bigger than lackluster attention seeking punchlines, something bigger than artistic expression. I realized, that this so-called man has just disrespected and slanderized one of the world’s most significantly influential artists, one of the most notable BLACK females of our time, the incredibly cherished, globally loved and world-embraced woman of color, Mariah Carey!

Some people may not realize or tend to forget that my wife is a Black woman. And she has had enough difficulty in her life dealing with racial and ethnicity issues. Believe it or not, Mariah is the same racial mixture as our beloved president Barack Obama. [Black Father + White Mother= BLACK]

Maybe I’m going too far, but I thought we got passed the days where white men could spew vulgar obscenities at our beautiful queens and get away with it. What’s next? Are we going to let this trash say something horrible about our lovely first lady, Mrs. Michelle Obama? Or would Marshall have talked sideways out of his neck like this about Oprah Winfrey? This act of racist bigotry cannot go unnoticed. Calling my wife a “cunt” and a “whore” is way worse than anything Don Imus could have ever said. So trust, repercussions will be served. Anybody got Al Sharpton’s number?! LOL

Let’s not forget about Eminem’s amateur mixtape rants of calling African Americans Nigger and how he hates “Black Bitches”. How did we let him get away with that in the first place?! He is a natural born racist in disguise. Someone tell this coward that he finally barked up the wrong tree. For his entire career he strategically only tried to beef with people he could bully. I mean, what real man picks fights with women? Real MC’s battle other real MC’s. Ask Nas, ask Jay Z, you didn’t see them starting beefs with women! That is truly some punk shit!

So I’m putting this out there now. Marshall Mathers, you need to holler at me on some grown man shit. Man to man, let’s meet up and deal with this like adults. This is my invitation to you, whenever and wherever you like sir. So when you come out of your introverted hiding place and ask your bodyguards if you can go out and play by yourself, I’m here Pimp!

Your blatant disrespect not just to Black women but ALL women in general must stop. You are a despicable excuse for a man. I can’t even see how you can call yourself a father! Imagine if someone said half the stuff you say about women to your daughter, Hayley. (And I’m pretty sure they will because you got it coming Marshall.) That’s how Karma works.

You sold your little records and made a little bit of change but now you are stepping in the wrong territory. You may have been able to rape and pillage our artform like an old school Caucasian con man and nobody said anything because we respected your talent, but now you’ve made the ultimate mistake. Don’t you know that the black woman is the foundation and the strongest force in our culture? Take notes homey, Elvis would have never disrespected Aretha Franklin or Diana Ross. You were supposed to just do your little song and dance, make your little racist money and call it a day. But no, you had to dishonor the black man’s most precious counterpart.

I’m taking full action on you Eminem. I don’t know why no one has stood up to your bitch ass yet. But I guess it’s going to take a corny, wack rapping, boy toy from Nickelodeon to set you straight. And trust, I am going to be relentless. Even though I got a lot of other obligations and occupations, you are my new full time job “homey”! As a matter of fact I think you going to bring my wack rhymes out of retirement! That’s right haters; you can thank Eminem because I’m going to start rapping again! LOL Just for him! And don’t forget about the jokes! We coming at you hard body!! Non-stop on your Manic-depressive-Insecure-Maclovin-Nazi- Liza Minelli haircut havin-lookin ass!! [Pause] That’s what I do all day Bitch!

So Miss Marshall, I’m going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife. This is going to be fun! It’s however you want it! Just remember, you did this to yourself! Your legacy has now been tainted from this day forth! You will now be known as the rapper who lost to Corny-ass Nick Cannon!!!"

Nigeria's Hip-Hop Industry Is Booming More Than USA?

Saw this on It's pretty interesting the way Hip Hop has spread globally. I wonder what the chance is for a Nigerian Emcee to gain crossover appeal in the states. I'm sure they would have a built in following what with the immigrants here. Its kinda crazy that they are making a hundred thou a concert when rappers over here struggle to make ten thou for a show. Big Ups to all my Nigerian friends.

Pretty Cool

A Rapper named Nyle takes Weezy's "Let the Beat Build" from the Carter III and turns it into a musical project. Pretty Dope in my humble opinion:

The Roots ft. Chrisette Michelle and Wale- Rising Up (Live)

Saw this on my man Reggie's fbook. A great performance on VH1 from an underrated group:

Chrisette Michelle's Album Epiphany is out now and its fantastic btdubs.

Yet another Reason why I Love Hip Hop.

My friend Vance posted this vid of Jay-z in concert on his facebook. He's doing a tribute to Biggie and Aaliyah (a staple of his concerts which includes Jam Master Jay and Tupac usually too) and the whole stadium knows the words to Biggie's classic "Juicy". This is why I love Hip Hop:

Boom Boom Pow Remix Craziness

So... remixes of Black Eyed Peas' "Boom Boom Pow" have been runnin' wild on the net..... I have my favorite (*cough* *cough* *Cudi* *cough* *cough* lol) but I'll let you be the judge:

Download the Busta Rhymes' version here:

P.S. Are artists getting bored? lol I mean the song is ok,but they seem to love it... Gucci Mane, Fatman Scoop and LMFAO all have versions too

Young Keno feat. Lil' Wayne & Lloyd

So, Club Fusion featuring Kaba Modern, BAC, diSiac, Triple 8 and Sympoh was the business! For those of you that weren't there, all of the choreo from all the dance groups was hot but one in particular caught my eye and that was Sympoh's. They danced to "The Things U Do" by Young Keno, Lil' Wayne and LLoyd and the song is FIIIRREEE! Shout out to Brian (I hope that's his name lol) for giving me the name of the song.

"And I wear them skinny jeans so you see my fat wallet!"
