Jay Z is winning! First he dominates and produces all the music on mega blockbuster video game, NBA 2k13. And now he has one of the hottest songs on the soundtrack of the adapted feature film, “The Great Gatsby” starring A-Listers like Leonardo DiCaprio. I would have posted the song earlier, but the movie producers muted it on youtube and all the other music hosts. Whatever. Here it is now… another hit from the king on the throne. Great job Jay Z!
Ciara is known for creating some of the sexiest videos in music history, and the visuals for her new single, “Body Party” are no different. As a matter of fact, Ciara out-done herself this time as her vocals are as sensual as the mesmerizing body movements that remind us of why we all love her so much. “The real fun begins when the scene switches to CiCi stripping off her robe in front of a cigar-smoking, Future (rapper/boyfriend), before eventually dropping to the floor, laying on her back and sticking her stiletto-clad heels in the air.” – Idolator. The video also features cameos from Trinidad James, Ludacris, and is shot by Director X.
The new film, “The Great Gatsby” is “an adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s Long Island-set novel, where Midwesterner Nick Carraway is lured into the lavish world of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. Soon enough, however, Carraway will see through the cracks of Gatsby’s nouveau riche existence, where obsession, madness, and tragedy await.” The movie stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Isla Fisher, Tobey Maguire, and is directed by Luhrmann.
When Ghostface Killiah has his mask on, you know it’s time for the dopest music ever created by any madman. Wu-Tang’s master wordsmith just released his spanking brand new single, “The Rise Of Ghostface Killah”, off of his soon-to-be-released album, “Twelve Reasons To Die”. This highly-anticipated project is executed-produced by the incredible genius, RZA, which will undoubtedly make it the best album of the year. And judging from the title, we can only expect some unimaginable rawness.

Included in this blog post are two videos of Wu-Tang performing “C.R.E.A.M.” and “Protect Ya Neck”, as well as amazing photos of the show.

There were soooo many surprise visits at the 2013 Coachella Music & Arts Festival!! There was Tyler The Creator who shocked the audience during Earl Sweatshirt’s performance. Legendary R&B Singer, R. Kelly slipped in during Phoenix’s performance. Solange graced our presence during The xx performance, and here we have John Legend performing with Benny Benassi on the new dance track titled, “Dance the Pain Away” !
Words can’t describe the state of euphoria that everyone felt while these two ‘legends’ performed this incredible song. Included in this post is a snippet of the soon to be worldwide hit. “Dance The Pain Away” is so reminiscent of why we traveled far and wide to be at this year’s Coachella Festival.
Janelle spoke to Elle right before her exhilarating performance last night at the 2013 Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California (Day 2). In the interview, Janelle gave her fans a little insight on her up & coming album, “The Electric Lady” and talked about her collaboration with mega superstar, Erykah Badu. Then Janelle went on to rip up the stage with a killer performace, as only she can do it. Check out the photos.
VA Rapper, Pusha T gave the crowd exactly what they wanted…a dope ass performance!! He started off with a verse from the Clipse’s “Grindin”, his 2002 Neptunes produced hit. He later jumped into a verse from the “Popular Demand (Popeyes),” another Clipse song, before moving into Kanye West songs “So Appalled” and “Runaway” off the “My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy” album. Finally, Pusha T moved onto songs from his charged up mixtapes, including the Drake diss song, “Exodus 23:1″. In the interview, Pusha T detailed the producers and special guests fans can expect on the upcoming solo album debut, titled “My Name Is My Name”.
Everyone waited with much anticipation for the supercharged hyped Rapper, 2 Chainz, who was ‘accidentally’ 20 minutes late!! No prob! He all of a sudden explodes on the stage performing his scene-stealing “Mercy” verse, but only after his DJ had prompted the crowd to rap the entirety of Kanye’s part. He went on to perform “Beez in the Trap” minus Nicki Minaj; and dropped “Bandz A Make Her Dance,” minus Juicy J and Lil Wayne. Then the elated moment came… when 2 Chainz hit em’ hard with his oh-so popular “Birthday Song”. A joyous song, for a joyous occasion, at one of the world’s most celebrated music festivals!

For all of you who are into that whole ‘Gangnam Style’ craze, South Korean ‘rapper’, PSY, brings you Part 2 of the madness. The title of the song is “Gentlemen’, and through PSY’s cult fans, it’s sure to be just as big of a hit as ‘Gangnam Style (which received over 1.5 BILLION youtube hits).
The music video for “Gentlemen,” mimics “Gangnam” and its much-loved antics. The video co-stars GA, a wildly popular K-Pop singer from girl group ‘Brown Eyed Girls’ (‘Gentlemen’ is inspired by her 2009 hit “Abracadabra”). Throughout the video, PSY is initially acting like a crazy jackass, until GA shows up and gives him a taste of his own medicine. Nice.
In the song “U.O.E.N.O,” Ross raps: “Put molly all in her champagne, she ain’t even know it. I took her home and I enjoyed that, she ain’t even know it.” “U.O.E.N.O.” is lifted from rapper, Rocko’s latest mixtape.
Reebok released a statement on Thursday announcing it had severed ties with Ross.
“Reebok holds our partners to a high standard, and we expect them to live up to the values of our brand,” the statement read. “Unfortunately, Rick Ross has failed to do so. While we do not believe that Rick Ross condones sexual assault, we are very disappointed he has yet to display an understanding of the seriousness of this issue or an appropriate level of remorse. At this time, it is in everyone’s best interest for Reebok to end its partnership with Mr. Ross.”
Jay Z responds to his critics who were displeased with his and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba, with a powerful new song titled, “Open Letter”. Jay Z still has his hunger from when he first started, which is why I, and millions of others love his music. On top of that, the beat goes HARD!
