Watch This: Travis Porter "Go Shorty Go"

So this is what the youth dem are listenin' to these days. I'm just glad they didn't do the typical greenscreen/soundstage video. Oh, and I'd much rather the kids singalong to "Go Shorty Go" on the radio than "Becky" any day.

Listen Up: Jay Electronica "Exhibit C"

Produced by Just Blaze... Jay Electronica is a true lyricist! Exhibit C indeed -- check the evidence:

Fuck that, call me Jay ElecHannukah
Jay ElecYarmulke
Jay ElecTramadaan Muhammad Asalaamica RasoulAllah Supana Watallah thought your monitor
My uzi still weigh a ton, check the barometer
Im hotter then the mothafuckin sun, check the thermometer...

It's been a long time coming but soon everyone will recognize. Crazy, some of my very first posts here were on Jay Electronica.

Watch This: Kid Cudi "Pursuit of Happiness"

As my homie @timmhotep put it on Twitter: "Theme of the CuDi is video is "I know a lot of white girls . . . and Drake."

What do you think of the video? And why do rappers love spraying champagne on girls? They've been doing it for years!!!

Watch This: H-Town & Jodeci "Knockin Your Heels Off"

As you can see from the video black does indeed crack. K-Ci, JoJo, Dalvin, Devante and the two remaining members of H-Town try to make a comeback. It's a sad day when Jo-Jo is the best looking member of the group. But let me not be superficial or overly critical. On the bright side, let's give the director some credit for all that dim lighting.

What do you think of the song? Is "Knockin Your Heels Off" too much of a knockoff of "Knockin Da Boots?"

Watch This: Sade "Soldier of Love"

Here it is -- the first new material from Sade in 10 years. And it's GREAT! The title track off her upcoming lp Soldier of Love

Co-produced with Mike Pela, "Soldier of Love" was written by Sade along with longtime collaborators Andrew Hale, Stuart Matthewman and Paul Spencer Denman. The song, featuring a pulsating and anthemic drum beat along with haunting vocals that Sade is known for, is now set to hit airwaves and will kick off the countdown for Soldier of Love. Recorded in England and set for release worldwide on February 8th, Soldier of Love marks Sade’s first studio album since the multi-platinum release of Lovers Rock in 2000.

The first single “Soldier Of Love” premiered today at 7am EST on

Watch This: Rhymefest "Give It To Me"

Very dope video from Rhymefest for the single off his upcoming album "El Che". Shouts to the director Konee Rok for the socio-political cartoon montage and special effects, very nice touch sir.

Watch This: Cashis "High As Fucc"

Another video that makes me miss California... Love this beat -- hmmm maybe Cashis' A&R is doing some work (jokes)!

Watch This: B.O.B. Performs "Nothin On U"

Bobby Ray had a concert on Friday December 4 in Atlanta and performed his new single "Nothin on U" ft. Bruno Mars for the first time. I can't wait for the video -- I hear he'll be shooting it very soon.

Not-Such-A-Model Mulatto

You'll never find Tiger under the Model Mulatto heading now! Tiger-HO!

Watch This: SNL Takes on Tiger

This would be funny to me if I wasn't so sick of hearing about Tiger, his 9 mistresses, sexting and his failure to use condoms. Enough already. Cheetah Woods.

Watch This: 50 Cent "Do You Think About Me"

Gotta give it to 50 -- after being "So Disrespectful" - to Vivica Fox she comes back to play a version of herself in his video. Money does the damndest things doesn't it?

Friday, December 4, 2009

Watch This: Jeremih "Raindrops"

Whew... So that's how it goes down at Magic City (on a tamer level)??? Next time I have an extra stack to waste I know where to go.

All The Way Live: Lee "Scratch" Perry is Coming To America

Lee “Scratch” Perry, one of the most important figures in the history of reggae music, will be embarking on a brief US tour this month. As an artist, songwriter, innovator, performer, creator and especially a producer, Perry has been at the forefront of reggae music since the late 50's ska movement and is considered to be the inventor of dub, reggae and the “scratch” turntable effect used by DJ's everywhere.

Perry's most recent album, the Grammy-nominated Repentance, fuses his signature style with a truly diverse collection of contemporary musical influences. Starting with a chance meeting between Perry and hyper-energetic artist/producer Andrew W.K. at SXSW in 2006, the pair formed an unthinkable friendship which led to a musical collaboration, resulting in the remarkable Repentance, Perry's 54th studio album. Guest musicians include Moby,Don Fleming, and drummer Brian Chippendale of Lightning Bolt!

Ice Cube Gets Into the Cartoon Business

Back in 1990 when I first discovered N.W.A. I'd never guess that one day Ice Cube would be making cartoons some day.

I'm guessing this is one animated series you might want to keep away from the kiddies. The DVD hits stores December 8.

Shaun Boothe has this dope concept called Unauthorized Biographies where he raps important facts about the lives of great figures accompanied by extremely well-edited footage. Previous Unauthorized Bios covered details on Barack Obama, Bob Marley, James Brown and Muhammed Ali. Don't know how Diddy managed to get one so early, but he has lead quite the life now hasn't he?

Blair Waldorf Wants To Lick The Rapper

In case you have no idea what she's talking about, it turns out that Gossip Girl actress Leighton Meester is making an album -- and Lil Wayne is featured on her song "Make It Rain"... Judging from how strange she sounded saying "diggin" and "sick" I'm not sure Leighton Meester knows what making it rain actually means.

I'm a Gossip Girl fan, so it was hard looking at Leighton dressed up like one of In Living Color's "Fly Girls". What would Blair say about that outfit!

Funny or Superbad? You Tell Me

Are you a fan of Judd Apatow's movies? They are hit or miss for me, I loved Superbad but Knocked Up and Pineapple Express irked me. I like this spot though, viral marketing can be really obvious sometimes.

Watch This: Who Is Izza Kizza

The first time I saw an Izza Kizza video my first instinct was "WTF?" but looking back I feel like that wasn't fair of me to do... So we're gonna give the Izz 2 tha Kizz a second chance. I'm posting his "Who Is Izza Kizza" EPK to give the man a chance to explain himself. Here goes...

Who is Izza Kizza from Izza Kizza on Vimeo.

His video for "Ooh La La" is up from some MTVU Freshman Video Award

"Ooh La La" is from his Connect The Dots EP, available on iTunes now. Directed by Decon's Yoram Benz. Full length album Saturday Morning in stores Spring 2010 on Decon Records.

And I have to level with you Izza Kizza -- I hate the fact that I feel like I need acid to enjoy your videos, especially since your music doesn't sound like a good soundtrack to tripping my face off.

Watch This: Pac Div "Whiplash"

Pac Div drops another one off their Church League Champions mixtape. Watching them I always feel like I'm back in '93 again, like hip-hop still has the right kind of youthful energy and intelligence. Things put back in their proper perspective... Whip that E. Go 'head now.

I like how it switches up at the end too -- it goes from a sunny day to a downright somber night.

Dame Dash is clearly a man out to prove a point. Not by making "another Hov" but by bringing us another talented act that makes dope music. His collaboration with The Black Keys to form BlakRoc seems to be a great start. The video is pretty simple but effective nonetheless, I Fux Wit It. "ITS THE ROC YOU BASTARDS!!"

Directed by Jerome D. for The Top Shelf Company

Download "Soon You'll Understand" for free at

Me being me, I also wanted to put a little spin on this one. You see that painting at the beginning of Diz's parents? Well I happen to be EXTREMELY jealous of their art collection. That Diz is so talented and artistic should come as no surprise, seeing as how his folks have incredible taste and know the value of culture. Check out this video of Diz's mom talking about The Kinsey Collection below:

Awesome right? Diz is your mom as cool as she seems?

Watch This: Alchemist & Just Blaze Battle It Out

Tuesday night at Opera was a night I'll never forget. I went to support my homies from the RedBull BigTune team -- J.Moore, DV One, Jake One & Vitamin D -- since they were in town. Watching the up and coming producers battle it out is pretty funny -- a lot of them do little dances and stuff -- but what got me really excited was seeing the exhibition rounds where Tha Bizness and Denaun Porter showed off their hit songs and then Alchemist & Just Blaze went head to head in an amazing showdown. I shot most of the battle so I could share it with you -- one of the videos is super blurry but the rest seem to have turned out pretty well. This is the stuff that makes me love my life. I live for nights like these.

And there you have it. Sorry it's not always clear and it's sometimes shaky but film isn't my area of expertise just yet :). Hope you enjoyed.

DJ Center @ APT

Don't sleep -- the DJ Center experience is like no other. If I was still in NYC I'd be there. *sheds a tear* If you go stop by the booth and tell Center I said play some Outkast!!!
