FREDRO STARR – “Everyday Hell” (Music Video) & “Made In The Streets” (Album Stream) | New Music

'Everyday Hell' is real Hip Hop from a true Legend in the game, FREDRO STARR. It was produced by Audible Doctor, who's been a BEAST on them beats, and recorded & released on Starr's 'Made In The Streets' album. Starr has done a tremendous job representing Southside Jamaica Queens aka the South Suicide. He announced that soon he will also be releasing a new project with his iconic east coast rap group, ONYX. I get goose bumps listening to this this song as Starr successfully marries a new wicked track with an old-school feel. Starr raps, "It sounds like this beat is motherf*ckin' crying. What you know about pain?" WORD UP.

Robin Thicke & Pharrell Williams Perform at Fontainebleau Miami Beach! (PHOTOS)

Talk about having one of the best times ever!! “Blurred Lines” &“Get Lucky’s”, Robin Thicke and Pharrell Williams graced the stage yesterday at the glamorous Fountainebleu Hilton on world famous Miami Beach…an event that’s part of the hotel’s recurring BleauLive series. It was too hot for clothes and all the sexy people sipped champagne and cocktails by the pool while listening to the inviting vocals of the R&B superstar and the Grammy-winning super-producer, both with the two biggest songs of the summer! My favorite Pharrell performance was ‘Beautiful’ off of Snoop’s album, where he serenaded bikini babes. And Thicke kicked things off with ‘I Wanna Love You Girl’, ending with his hit ‘Blurred Lines’. The pool party and concert were absolutely a great way to celebrate Labor Day Weekend! Check out the pics.
