Just like the song, the video for ‘Without Me’ is HOT! Fantasia and Kelly Rowland are mesmerizing in this vivid portrait of a mixture between a ballad and slow burning hip hop track. Missy Elliot, the iconic rapper who balances out the song, also makes an appearance to drop her hardcore lyrics. And peep that bottle of Hennessy…lol! Fantasia is showing off her gangsta side. Hands Down! Tasia is BACK and going hard!!!!!

“My organs were shutting down. My liver, my kidneys, everything (during an overdose). They were gonna have to put me on dialysis. They didn’t think I was going to make it. My (rock) bottom was going to be death…
Within a month, I had relapsed, and started taking the same amount of pills again. I remember walking around my house, thinking every single day that, ‘I’m going to f*cking die’. I’m looking at my kids and I’m like, ‘(But) I need to be here for this’. Coming off of everything, I literally was up 24 hours a day, for three weeks straight. And I mean not sleeping, not even nodding off, for a f*cking minute. I had to regain motor skills. I had to regain talking skills. It’s been a learning process. I’m growing. I just couldn’t believe that anyone could be naturally happy, and naturally functioning, or enjoying life in general, without being (high) on something.” – EMINEM
SCARFACE, the REAL King of the South, dropped a bonafide classic album that remains in heavy rotation on my Ipod. He’s certainly one of my top 10 rappers of all time. Lyrically, Scarface sets the bar that is rarely matched. Case in point, this ’2 The Beat’ joint. It’s raw unadulterated hip hop…no autotunes or studio tricks, just a classic flow embedded in classic storytelling. I hope everyone had a chance to download the ‘Dopeman Music’ album because Face brutally murders this beat and all the other tracks. It’s definitely a real street album. I love every cut. No doubt.
This is just a quick post sharing that new NAS & J. COLE joint. Nas is the Rapper of Rappers, and he always surprises me with how lyrically nice he’s getting with age. Relevance, intelligence, elegance, Nas embodies what Hip Hop should be appreciated for. The original version of this song sent a chill up my spine due to the honesty. This version warmed my heart. Glad Nas received it well and threw a verse on it of reassurance. This is great stuff. Props
The MIAMI HEAT win two NBA World Championship Titles in a row!! Congratulations!! The entire team pulled together to clutch this series, and we couldn’t be more proud. Once again, Lebron James was named the 2013 NBA Finals MVP! He was nothing short of a beast out on that court. Dr. Dre, Drake, Bill Russel, Spike Lee, and more left Lebron messages on an old-fashioned answering machine, complete with the “beep” and all. LOL! And you can too by calling (305) 767-2226.
“Cover phenom LeBron James talks to “Video Game James” in your first look at NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 4, from Sony’s E3 Press Conference!” The graphics are so good, you’ll confuse the the animated Lebron for the real one.
“The album is Platnium and its not even out. Samsung bought 1 million copies of his Jay Z’s new album and is giving it away to new users. Genius” – “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will be releases July 4th, and plans to give them to Samsung Galaxy smartphone users for free will happen 72 hours ahead of the release.
If you’re a fan of the first “300″ movie, then news of the sequel, “300: Rise of an Empire”, should put a smile on your face. The new action-thriller focuses on the battle of Salamis (Persian fleet vs Greek fleet) near Athens in the sea. The Greek general, Themistocles, battles an invading army of Persians under the mortal-turned-god, Xerxes. Xerxes had already defeated the first “300″ men.
I’m not sure how the film will play out, because historically, Themistocles, was ultimately exiled from Greece, many years after the war. Of course, since the focus of the movie is on the battle against the Persian navy, there will be lots of blood, gore, and powerful special effects…all the things that makes this franchise exciting. So regardless of the specific plot, the film will be unforgettable.
ICE CUBE, one of the realest to ever do it. We salute all of your contributions to Hip Hop and thank you for setting the bar high in terms of lyricism, story telling, content & subject matter, and of course, that hardcore West Coast sound. In honor of the rap legend, actor, and entrepreneur, I posted a video synonymous with Ice Cube’s legacy – “Gangsta Rap Made Me Do It”. This is the uncensored version.
LOL! Nope, they didn’t tattoo the baby, but Baby Birdman’s parents haD a shirt custom-made with the graphics of Chris Anderson’s tattoos. Talk about die-hard Miami Heat fans!! This sentiment shows how important our NBA team is to the city of Miami AND South Florida as a whole. Baby Birdman met Grown-Up Birdman as the Miami Heat prepared for Game 2 if the Championship Finals. Good luck to the Heat as they try to hold on as the reigning champions.
The sequel to one of favorite movies, the action-packed, KICK ASS 2, will hit U.S. theaters this summer on August 16th.
“Plot Summary: Kick-Ass, Hit Girl and Red Mist return for the follow-up to 2010′s irreverent global hit: “Kick-Ass 2.” After Kick-Ass’ (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) insane bravery inspires a new wave of self-made masked crusaders, led by the badass Colonel Stars and Stripes (Jim Carrey), our hero joins them on patrol. When these amateur superheroes are hunted down by Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse)—reborn as The Mother F%&*^r—only the blade-wielding Hit Girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) can prevent their annihilation.”
Not long ago, I did a survey within all of my social networking sites asking everyone, “What is the #1 Hip Hop song of ALL TIME.” Without a doubt, PETE ROCK’s and C. L. SMOOTH’s “T.R.O.Y (They Reminisce Over You)”, won by a landslide…up by tens of thousands of votes. This is how monumental this group’s sound was/is to the culture, and what they represent.
In the latest episode of the Complex TV‘s “Magnum Opus” series, Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth recalls the historical moment on how this song was created, what was going on inside of their genius minds, and their general influences in regards to all the music they created. Representing ‘Mount Vernon, NY’, Pete Rock & C. L. Smooth give us the full breakdown of their classic “Mecca and the Soul Brother” album. Plus, they speak on Heavy D & The Boyz, and the death of their close friend Troy Dixon.
Here is another piece to the ‘Who killed TUPAC’ puzzle. As members of the Hip Hop community, it’s up to us to get down to the bottom of this murder. We can’t accept “cold cases” in the death of our influential young poets because that would solidify the status quo, that killing one of ‘us’ is no big deal. And 2Pac’s former bodyguard, “Big Frank”, the one who was suppose to be guarding Pac the night of his death, may have taken some secrets to his grave.
