We’ve all seen the photos, now here is a video of Beyonce and Jay Z touring the streets of Cuba. The AP writes, “Beyonce and Jay-Z caused a big stir in Havana as they marked their fifth wedding anniversary. R&B’s power couple was mobbed by dozens of well-wishers at the renowned restaurant La Guarida and police had to step in to keep the crowds at bay. Check out this raw video from the scene.”
This is beyond brilliant! Artist Jay Shells channeled his love of hip hop music and his uncanny sign-making skills towards a brand new project: “Rap Quotes.” For this ongoing project, Shells created official-looking street signs quoting famous rap lyrics that shout out specific street corners and locations.” Photos are captured by Animal New York.
The live footage is a little rough but it gives you some idea of the high energy, from a massive crowd of people, that dominated the Centennial Olympic Park in Atlanta over the weekend. The NCAA Final Four Big Dance Concert went down in celebration of the NCAA championship game between Michigan and Louisville. The 3-day free music festival featured high-profile musical artists from around the country including; Ludacris, Flo Rida, Muse, Sting, and the Dave Matthews Band, just to name a few. The audience was estimated at around 40k.
Now we’re finally down to the last game of the year. Either Louisville or Michigan will end the day as national champions.
I can’t explain it but “The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo” is my guilty pleasure! I love kick ass movies with psychotic females as the protagonist. Screenwriter, Steven Zaillian has already moved onto adapting the sequel, “The Girl Who Played with Fire” and is signed for “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest.” And I’m addicted to the “Tattoo” American version.
Today, we were having a debate on facebook on who’s the better rapper (strictly lyrical)… NAS vs Andre 3000. The consensus is that most people feel Nas is the better lyricist, especially knowing that Andre 3000 haven’t released a solo album yet. But at the same time, the fact that ’3 Stacks’ is being compared to ANYONE, based on just his collaborations alone, makes him a premiere MC for sure. Arguments in 3 Stacks favor suggests that he is more wittier than Nas. All of which reminded me of this collabo Andre 3000 did with Nas’ ex-wife, Kelis, titled, “Millionaire”.
The latest trailer for the new sci-fi film, “After Earth”, stars Will Smith as General Cypher Raige, a legendary ranger on Nova Prime (a planet humans fled to 1,000 years ago after catastrophic events made planet Earth inhabitable), back from a tour of duty, hoping to bond with his son, Katai (Jaden).

This new Lamborghini Veneno was unveiled this month at the Geneva Motor Show 2013. It’s the fastest Lamborghini road car valued at 4.5 million dollars, and was built to celebrate Lambo’s 50th birthday.
The Lamborghini Veneno comes from a legendary Andalusian fighting bull that killed its toreador. Only 3 were made; a red, white, and green one, to represent the colors of the Italian flag. The Veneno can go from 0-62 in 2.8 seconds and appears to be flying by you while parked. We’ll probably see this beauty in the next Dark Knight movie. This supercar just makes other cars looks like sh#t.

Yeah Yeah Yeah, I know. I’m a little late posting the video for ‘We Still In This Bitch”. It’s my chosen IPOD pick because that baseline is some sick sh*t!!

And B.o.B laced on the vocals is icing on the cake.
