Watch This: Brittany Dailey x Estevan Oriol x TITS

BRITTANY DAILEY X ESTEVAN ORIOL X TITS from Estevan Oriol on Vimeo.



As I was sitting around on a lazy Saturday watching movies and internetting some TITS caught my attention. As a man of the people, it was only right that I help spread the 3 minutes of joy that this video brought me. Aside from the amazing specimen that is one Miss Brittany Dailey, Estevan Oriol is a dope photographer and soundtrack for this video is all a hip-hop lover could ever want.

Watch/Listen To This: Cee-lo Green "Fuck You"



Cee-lo Green returns to the scene with a biiiig "Fuck You". I've already listened to it like 50-11 times and I can see that this is gonna be one of my favorite wake-up-in-the-morning-and-roll-one-songs. I can definitely see this gettin licensed crazy for some Judd Apatow movie or something (I should prolly charge for that kinda advice, but I digress...) Enjoy it, and if you dont like it....fuck you.

Eminem: Recovery Artwork



















Yes ladies and gentlemen, Marshall is on his way. June 22nd is the day Em drops the sequel to his highly-anticipated return opus Relapse. Armed with dual covers which feature some pretty amazing photography, and a host of wet-dream production collabs (Boi-1da, Just Blaze, Havoc) it looks like this album is poised to the quiet embarrassed murmurs of dissatisfied Sta- er, FANS that weren't diggin Relapse

Watch This: Marsha Ambrosius at S.O.Bs



Last night my big sister Marsha took the stage at S.O.Bs in NY along with my brother DJ Aktive, and Johnnie "Smurph" to bless the people with her uncanny musical stylings.

Be on the look out for Marsha new album coming soon on her new home J Records.

Watch This: Drake "Find Your Love"



*Cues the Etta James record* "Aaaaaaaat laaaaaast" After all the criticism (deserved), all the hate (unnecessary), and all the skepticism (jury's still out) Aubrey Graham has given the people something that they can't deny...a REALLY dope video. Way to bounce back Mr. Mandler (director) you are hereby cleared of the charges levied against you (tryna "Kanye" Drake's career with that "Over" video)

Come N Get It: Eminem "Not Afraid"


















Finally, the real Slim Shady has finally stood up. Thats not to say that I didn't thoroughly enjoy Relapse, however it left a little to be desired in the in content department. Fortunately for us, Marshall has been hard at work penning bars for his upcoming release Recovery. This record shows Em purging himself of the demons he's had on his shoulder while also inspiring others to face their's. With solemn production by Boi-1da "Not Afraid" definitely sets the platform for what could be a new hiphop classic. Clap for em.

Watch This: M.I.A. "Born Free"

M.I.A, Born Free from ROMAIN-GAVRAS on Vimeo.



In my opinion, there are very few descriptive words that would do this amazing video justice. Many will try, but their attempts will be in vain. In a world where shocking images are readily available people have become so numb to them that emotional reactions are a rarity. Yet somehow M.I.A. and director Romain Gavras have managed to produce something that is at once disturbingly beautiful, startling, and thought-provoking. Enjoy

Watch This: Nottz "Cars"

Nottz "Cars" from Raw Koncept on Vimeo.

The folks over at Native Instruments have developed a piece of equipment that is taking the industry by storm. Not only is it more portable than the MPC, but according to Mr. Parker it has an array of stock sounds that are production ready. Its dope to see producers break down the science of building a track, hope this helps some of youse guys.

Watch This: Little Brother "Curtain Call"



Isn't it nice to see Phonte and Pooh together again? We've been rooting for these guys to win since they started playing the game, but recently we realized they already won a long time ago. Some folks do it for the love and while Little Brother definitely fits in that lane, they've also shown it's possible for that love to make a living. The hard work hasn't gone without notice.

Yeah there were a buncha chics gettin their fashion-forward on, but eye-brow raising wardrobe and weird ass makeup aint for everybody. Welcome back kiddo, hopefully you haven't alienated everyone quite yet...

On another note, this black bathing suit she is wearing is the luckiest summbitch EVER. Por dios...

Hopefully Grown Simba will have an MP3 version for us sometime this week cuz its DEF a dope record. Wonder if he produced it or No I.D.?

Watch This: Drake "Over" Video



*sigh*...First let me say I dig Aubrey Graham's music; he's a pretty witty rapper and has a decent command of lyric/melody. That being said his 2 solo videos haven't exactly been as catchy as his hooks. And to honest with you this one is just downright strange. I still listen to your records homie, not sure if i'll be watching anymore videos though...

Watch This: Vado "Large On The Streets"

VADO "LARGE ON THE STREETS" MUSIC VIDEO TRAILER DIRECTED BY ARM & WILL PU from FM15 FILMS on Vimeo.



I fux wit this kid. After listening to Cam'ron and Vado's Boss of All Bosses it was pretty clear that homie repped a NY brand of rap that we haven't seen in a while. Gritty delivery, agile wordplay, very reminiscent of Children of The Corn (Google them). In the midst of rap music evolving and expanding (which I promote wholeheartedly) its nice to see good ol fashioned street shit stick a .38 in our ribs and say "You know what time it is..."
