Introducing this season’s new TV villian, Frank Underwood. In HOUSE OF CARDS Season 2, he has masterfully maneuvered his way into the Vice Presidency of the United States, but his ascension faces threats on all fronts…
“This critically-acclaimed drama slithers beneath the curtain and through the back halls of greed, sex, love and corruption in modern Washington D.C. In the second season, Francis (KEVIN SPACEY) and Claire (Robin Wright) Underwood continue their ruthless rise to power as threats mount on all fronts. Zoe Barnes (Kate Mara), an up-and-coming reporter and Francis’s former paramour, is inching closer to the truth about his crimes.
President Walker’s (Michel Gill) billionaire confidante Raymond Tusk (Gerald McRaney) demands that Francis reciprocate political favors or face retribution. And Claire must confront the increasing glare of the spotlight as it eats away at her and Francis’s once private existence. The Underwood’s must overcome these dangers — past and present — to avoid losing everything, regardless of collateral damage they leave in their wake.” (comingsoon.net)
“I’m up here to celebrate the life of a young man whose path I crossed a little over a year ago. I admired Doe because, as a young man at the age that he was, he always presented himself to be more mature.
It’s very rare that you could find somebody at the age of 20 or 21, and sit them down in front of somebody they aspire to be like, and they are as composed and poised and postured and looking eye to eye with this person. It’s very rare that you find somebody at the age of 20 or 21 and you could walk them into the room with a Nelly, or you could walk them into a room with a Timbaland or Jay Z, and they not lose their cool, they’re composed, postured, with the morals, standards, and the principles that were instilled in him from his family, his mom, his dad, grandmama, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles … I saw that in him day one, off top, and that is what drew me to him even more so beyond the music.
So I want everybody to know that, one thing I will never do, I will never let this hard man’s hard work go to waste. I’ll never let his work go to waste, I’ll never let his life be lived in vain.”" – T.I. (King of the South)
“Years of subpar Hip Hop has infected the brains of the masses. A Zombie-like plague has the city under siege…. “
50 CENT celebrates the new year by releasing a new freestyle, “This Is Murder Not Music”. His new joint is just a warning shot of what’s to come. The aggression in music was SPARKED by Fif 10yrs ago & its just recently returning in 2013/14. This content is MEAN. This hook is MEAN. This simplistic beat is MEAN. The sh*t talking is MEAN. 50′s sh*t talkin’ is unmatched cause we know its coming from a real place. His next album, “Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win,” drops soon.
2014 is already starting off great! The Hip Hop ruler, JAY Z, kicked off his first ‘Magna Carter World Tour’ show of the year on Thursday in, yes, you’ve guessed it, MIAMI!

‘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.
Pro Era’s CJ FLY gives you a tour around his hometown Brooklyn, New York on some jazzy Cookin Soul production. ‘Still The Motto’ has a sick ass beat that reminds you of that old-fashion hip hop. It one of those ‘good feelin’ songs that relaxes your mind, uplifts you, and takes you back to a time when you were carefree. CJ Fly tells you to puff on the weed but you don’t need to smoke weed when listening to this. It’s ‘Fly’ all on it’s own.
Nas and Busta are an explosive combination, on ‘Rough Around The Edges’. This ill song was suppose to be on Busta’s ‘The Big Bang’ album, but he said he had to choose between it and ‘Don’t Get Carried Away’ (“a better concert song”). Bad choice…’Rough Around The Edges’ is WAY better. The production on this is bananas! Hi-Tek is a vicious producer. And it’s tracks like these that are forever stamped in the fabric of Hip-Hop antiquity.

Musicians garner inspiration from all over, including the places they’ve been, paintings & portraits they’ve seen, and sometimes from sounds & songs performed by other musicians. When I first heard Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”, it seemed as if I heard it somewhere before. I was immediately drawn to the ballad with the haunting vocals and twisted bass line. Then it hit me…
It appeared that Beyonce’s inspiration for “Drunk In Love” could have came from this similar song by Keaira LaShae titled, “Drunk Love”. Watch both videos and you be the judge.
