"Entourage" Theme Music Remix

Listen: Entourage Theme Music


Entourage music supervisor just released this gem last night on Twitter. Two years ago, the producers of the show contemplated putting a new spin to the theme music intro, the idea never saw the light of the day. Glad they stuck by the original, not that the remix is bad or anything.

Diggy Simmons "Big Shoes" AT&T Commercial



That's some "Big Shoes" to fill in, you know, because of his blood affiliation to Rev Run of the legendary group Run DMC (R.I.P Jam Master Jay). The kid has a great career ahead of him, yes the expectations are great but natural talent will take care of that by itself.

Last night at a not so secret (blame Twitter) private show for close friends and media Kanye West accompanied by John Legend and later joined on stage by Estelle for "American Boy, performed a huge array of hits and personal favorites for the all-suited up crowd. The dress code was enforced following the "Rosewood" movement (suits and dress shoes).

While Legend was on the piano, Kanye was handling the MPC machine and sampling sounds live during his performances, he even had a special autotune mic for his "808's & Heartbreaks" hits.
