THE GAME ft. Dej Loaf – “Ryda” (Music Video) via @lisafordblog #MusicMonday

This ain't so bad, but damn I miss the style of Documentary and Doctor's Advocate. I want the Game from The Documentary back...his style back then was way better. Check out the video and tell me what you think. FreeOnSmash writes, "Since its premiere last month from producer DJ Skee, Los Angeles rapper The Game has officially dated his long-awaited sequel for The Documentary to drop this summer. Serving as the first single for the project, Chuck Taylor called up Detroit rapper DeJ Loaf to channel their love for Makaveli’s critically-acclaimed classic All Eyez On Me, with “Ambitionz of a Rida.” Also using influences from his “Me and My Girlfriend” classic, the Bompton rapper invites DeJ out to the West for the heist of her lifetime, but whether or not she’s ready to prove she can be his ’15 Bonnie remains to be seen. After you watch the visual above, look for The Documentary 2 arriving this June 30th."

SNOOP DOGG – “So Many Pros” (Music Video) New Music! via @lisafordblog

SNOOP's video for "So Many Pros" plays more like an epic blaxploitation film from the 70's. West Coast rap artistry is known for it's 70's funk roots, and with "So Many Pro" (produced by Pharrell), off of Snoop's BUSH album, that pimp era is brought back into light. What you're about to see is probably one of the most creative music videos in Hip Hop, produced by French director Francois Rousselet — who previously worked with Kanye West, Madonna, and others. The female 'Snoop' from 'The Wire' also makes a cameo appearance. Dopeness~

DJ QUIK & Tony Toni Toné – “Let’s Get Down” (Music Video) #ThrowbackThursday via @lisafordblog

Tony Toni Toné's, "Let's Get Down", features one of my favorite Hip Hop tracks of all time produced by the West Coast's legendary DJ QUIK. Da Brat's, "Fire It Up" has a similar swag and sound and like this one, is on constant rewind in my IPod. You can dance to 'Let's Get Down', you can have sex to 'Let's Get Down', and you can smoke to it because it's one of those timeless chill ass songs. It takes place during the days when women could be in the videos with clothes on and still be sexy! I wish they would get back together and tour!!!

DOM KENNEDY – “After School” (Music Video) @LISAFORDBLOG’s IPOD Pick

DOM KENNEDY is 'so West Coast' and his laid back flow on this laid back beat proves it. 'After School' is classic Hip Hop and it's one of those songs that make you feel high without smoking a pound of weed. This has been my cruising song since I first listened to the album because it's so hardcore. "After School' is off of Dom's "Get Home Safely" album, which dropped a while ago, so these new visuals for is a special treat for us hip hop heads.

SUGE KNIGHT Says Diddy Is A Bitch & 2PAC Is Still Alive! (VIDEO)

SUGE KNIGHT says all fingers point to Diddy if TUPAC was actually murdered, but deeply believes that PAC is still alive. What else is still alive? The bad blood between Diddy and Suge, and what Suge calls "Hollywood" rappers. As we see nearly 20 years later, the "Who murdered 2Pac" saga still continues and is one that will never die...until the world, and fans like me get an arrest and the TRUTH of what really happened the night of September 13, 1996. Is there any validity to what Suge Knight is saying in this video? Or is it just mumblings from an ole' fool. You be the judge.
