Reflection Eternal: "The Re:Union" Mixtape

Remember that crazy song Just Begun by Reflection Eternal featuring Mos Def, J Electronica, and J. Cole? Yeah well that was the fanfare heralding this new mixtape:
Reflection Eternal: "The Re:Union"
. Mixed by Statik Selektah, the tape has somethings old, somethings new, and somethings unreleased for u to ride to in the new year.

Reflection Eternal: The Re:Union


Forever Films has been at it, pulling videos out of the sky. Honestly, I'm really digging them. I'm not sure who the director is, but these concepts are so different than the videos BET airs.

Merry Christmas =D

Check out the most famous reindeer of all....

Introducing Lola Maxwell

MC. Refreshing. Talented. Woman. Bold. Witty. I could go on and on describing up and coming artist Lola Maxwell. Born and raised in Washington, DC, Lola Maxwell is finally making a name for herself. I listened to her music a little apprehensively, but I was surprised at how good she is. With two mixtapes under her belt (From the Planet of the Greats and Check the Rhyme), I'm excited to see what Lola does next.
Give her a chance. Take a listen. I promise you won't be disappointed.

Download Lola Maxwell's Check the Rhyme Mixtape Here!
Check Her Myspace Page!

P.S It's nice to finally hear a female MC out there representing! (who can can actually rap too) *cough* NIcki Minaj doesn't count *cough*

JAY-Z - Forever Young feat. MR. HUDSON

Beautiful artistic video.

Lil Wayne feat Eminem - Drop The World

The collabo Weezy's been beggin for has finally taken place and it's extremely dope. Peep before they take it down:

Monday, December 14, 2009


The Cool Kids Forever Films presents "Duhh" by Tabi Booney whose album drops January 20th. I'm still checking this dude out so give me some time before I make up my mind. This track's ok but the video graphics and creativity is DOPE.

Lupe Fiasco - Solar Midnight (Video)

As much as I despise the inspiration for this song and video, I love Lupe and what he did with the song. Dopeness and if u haven't heard Enemy of the State hit the mixtapes tag and download it. Required listening. Yes I just gave you homework.

Mos Def - Supermagic (Video)

Mos keeps it simple and natural with the visual for the intro to his album The Ecstatic, as he does with the music throughout the album. Give it a spin, because when I say simple I don't mean cheap or underwhelming in the slightest. It's well worth an Itunes purchase for its standout tracks including this one.

50 Cent feat. Governor - Do You Think About Me

50 Cent is in a constant struggle for relevancy because of his tendency to champion sensationalism over quality music, but that doesn't mean he's completely lost his step. Songs like "Do You Think About Me", with well executed, non cliche concepts and assured delivery save 50 Cent's last cd from being a weed plate. If 50 works to grow as an audience he might survive the dying Music industry's weeding out process. Plus the video, featuring Curtis' ex Vivica Fox, Tamala Jones, and Tahiry is dope conceptually, showing Fif's growing propensity to engage in the cinematic.

The D.E.A. decides to use Lil Wayne as a weapon against Mexican Drug Cartels


Trey Songz Ft. Usher x Keri Hilson “Invented Sex (Remix)”

Keri and Usher hop on Trey's banger. Sexiness ensues.

Young Money - Bedrock (Video)

Aint no party like a Young Money Party...

KiD CuDi feat. MGMT & RATATAT - Pursuit of Happiness (Video)

Lol @ Drake and Cudi. This video is dope. I wonder when they'll make a song together.

Friday, December 4, 2009

Happy HOV day.

Happy birthday to Sean Carter. Hip hop might (read: would) suck without you.

Chris Brown - Graffiti (Promo Trailer)

Breezy's still gotta lotta work to do if he's gonna winback his old fanbase. The trailer below for his album got me thinkin a reality show like T.I.'s road to Redemption might be a good look, tho Chris is nowhere near as articulate as Tip, and people probably already feel some type of way about the fact that this kid even has an album coming out. All he can do is try tho and the music so far has been dope. Guess we'll see...

T=Pain - Take Your Shirt Off (Video)

Is Teddy Pain still relevant after D.O.A.? I think that remains to be seen, but this ish right here is dope.

Random Musings:

1) George Clinton is in this video. Yes, the George Clinton
2) So is Petey Pablo (the not so quiet inspiration for this song) I think he woulda ripped a verse up here. REEEEEEEMIXXXXXXXX???

And finally 3) "Ask Yourself: Is Autotune Really Dead?"

DJ Khaled featuring Usher, Rick Ross, Drake, and Jeezy - Fed Up (Video)

Khaled makes us nostalgic for the 90sPuffDaddyMonsterEpicBlockbusterExpensiveass Music Video with this visual for a song that doesn't really do it for me.

Diggy Simmons - First Flight (Mixtape)

Apparently Diggy Simmons (son of Rev Run and nephew of Russell) can rap. And he's not bad. At all. Kid has flow and potential (much more than his older bro). Anyway don't take my word for it, peep the mixtape, First Flight, below.

Diggy Simmons - First Flight (Mixtape)

Steve Harvey with Some Real Talk

Steve Harvey talks about the way men and women relate to each other. He hits on Hip Hop without be patronizing and gives some opinions I can respect, and he TAKES RESPONSIBILITY for his generations shortcomings in raising the hip hop generation. Though he doesn't get into much depth, I feel like he respects the positive aspects the culture has to offer without excusing the negative.

Birdman ft. Lil Wayne & Drake - 4 My Town (Play Ball) Video

They gon be alright if they put Drake on every hook...

Snoop Dogg - I Wanna Rock (Video + Song)

I Wanna Rock - Snoop Dogg

Chip Tha Ripper - The Cleveland Show
