Shaq Conducts The Boston pops Orchestra



I always thought this was the easiest job ever. I mean if the musicians have the notes in front of them do they really need a conductor in front of them to tell them what to play?

Hilarities nonetheless.

Angela Yee, Charlamagne The God & DJ Envy Join Power 105 "Breakfast Club"



Ang'Yee was rocking the airwaves at Shade45 for 6 years, she decided not to renew her contract and move on to Power 105. Charlamagne, former Wendy Williams sidekick had a short stint in a local Philly radio and was let go after an "controversial" interview he did with Beanie Sigel. Rumors were that Jay and the Illuminati crew orchestrated the coup. Not. And DJ Envy was at Hot 97 and joined the station a few months back.

Congrats to them, well deserved.

The group consists of Ryu of Style of Beyond, Apathy of Demigodz, and West Coast producer Scoop DeVille. The above video, directed by 2tone of True Love & False Idols, features a frat-house-like party fuckery with shredding machines, skeleton masks, and old poppers breaking it down in the midst of a ruckus. This track is a follow up to “Dancin’ On Ya Grave.” Both singles are confirmed to be included in the group’s forthcoming 2011 release tentatively titled, “OPening Ceremony.”

I'm getting a sudden feeling of deja vu (No celeb' cameos though), remember this:

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Lloyd Banks, Swizz Beatz, Ryan Leslie, Fabolous & Pusha T Perform "Start It Up"



Great seeing NY cats and other rappers supporting each others. Obviously they didn't have to show up since Kanye was also holding his album release concert in NY later that night. Great support.

Recap: Kanye West Album Release Concert in NYC - The Performances.


Mr. West brought out the big guns for this one. Kanye performed the whole album in it's original sequencing with special guest dropping here and there. We're talking Teyana Taylor, Bon Iver, Mike Dean, nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, John Legend, Pusha T and Cyhi Da Prince.















And of course Kanye closed out the show with  a 10-minute rant aimed at Bush and Taylor Swift. He also thanked the fans and bragged a lil bit. Gotta love him.

Video: Flo Rida "Turn Around (5,4,3,2,1)"



Hate him or love him but Flo sure deliver on the visuals for this track. Flew the crew to Brazil and recruited an array of Brazilian vixens shaking their derriere to the rhythm of Samba. Don't be surprised if this get banned for TV.

Let me watch this again for a more thorough review, for "professional" purposes of course, it's a dirty job and somebody gots to do it

Waka Flocka Flame Covers "Respect" Magazine


The O.G Elliott Wilson (Rap Radar) is back on his Editor duties, formerly at XXL mag, now at "Respect" magazine. So for his first cover he obviously went against the grain and picked, Summer anthem extraordinaire Waka.

Many of you will disagree with his choice. Sure Waka was deserving of a cover this Summer but now I'm not too sure. He had to overlook Kanye, Jay and Nicki, tough pill to swallow. Anyways, on a business standpoint, if you want to sell, you gotta make the streets talk and for that you gotta create a controversy.

Mission accomplished. The streets are buzzing. Can't wait to read his editorial, his shit talking was the reason I subscribed to XXL while he was there. Brilliant writer.

Dr. Dre ft. Eminem & Skylar Grey - I Need A Doctor
Dr. Dre ft. Snoop Dogg & Akon - Kush

The magic was gone a few years back when Dre didn't delivered "Detox". The fans stopped caring a long time ago. Your move Dre.

Catch a few excerpts from the interview here.

Video: B.o.B "Don't Let Me Fall"



Great concept.

T.I "No Mercy" Album Cover


Renaming the album doesn't cu it for me. He should shelve it and remake another one. Oh wait he's in jail, never mind then.

Drake Covers "GQ" Magazine [Man Of The Year Issue]

If you don't like it, Fuck your mean mug then!

Kanye West On"The Today Show" w/ Matt Lauer



Last night Kanye went on a Twitter rant and lashed out at Matt Lauer for a poor lack of professionalism during the interview he gave him.

Mr. West felt ambushed and cornered when Matt insisted that Kanye looks at Bush's face on the monitor screen and expresses his remorse also when asked about the MTV/Taylor Swift incident, Kanye wasn't too fond of the producers running the clip over and over again while he was answering the question.

Kanye and his management team will no longer grant interview requests until the end of his promotional tour to focus solely on the Music.

Yeezy is currently working on a collaborative album with Jay-Z "Watch The Throne", coming out next year.
