Video: Jay-Z - My President Is Black In Arizona (Live)...

Mr. Carter performed for the good people in AZ this week. He did his rendition of Young Jizzo's "My President is Black" and changed the "DC" shout to "AZ" to give the dead ass crowd something to relate too.

Guess they were still tight that Obama won and just wanted Jay to do "Big Pimpin".

*Shrugs Shoulders*

Alternate Clip:

Performs "Jigga What", "H to the Izzo", "Can I Get A", and "Beware Of The Boys".

We wonder if Amil gets a percentage for the performed songs on which her vocals are featured?

*Update: No.

It's a breath of fresh air to hear that Jada and DJ Green Lantern have really squashed their ongoing beef and managed to put together an effort. Seems like to Kiss, the music is more important than the ego.


Video: Finally, Lil' Wayne Explain Yourself...

Mixtape: Nicki Minaj - Beam Me Up Scotty...

Download Here. Nicki Minaj - Beam Me Up Scotty (Mixtape)

The released track we posted a little while before with Lil' Wayne I go Crazy is pretty good. You can expect more in that fashion on the tape. Guest features include, but not limited to Rihanna, Lil' Wayne, Busta Rhymes and Young Money affiliate Drake.

Definitely a good look for Ms. Minaj.

Video: So, This New Guy Right...

Just got around to posting more from new comer Aubrey Graham also known by his stage name "Wheelchair Jimmy" also known by his hip-hop moniker "Drake".

Hails from Canada, and stopped by the Funk Flex show to spit a freestyle while here in New York.

We're familiar with dudes capabilities, however we must say that we were slightly disappointed that 1) He was reading from his blackberry, and 2) He did not MURDER the beats like we've come to expect from him.

There is still miles and miles of improvement left for him though so he gets a super get out of jail free card.

Dude's grind is near impeccable. Hustle hard homie. Dope.

Eminem Relapse Cover Art...

Just what the doctor ordered, no? We like what he did there with the pills and medical theme and the tag saying prescribed by Dr. Dre.

We don't know if we're too crazy about the songs Mr. Mathers has floating around the airwaves or internet playground but one thing remains certain.

Eminem needs to reintroduce himself after such a long hiatus.

New Music: Fabolous Feat. Jeremih - It's My Time...

Video: How To Get Your Ish Played, Dummy...

Peter Rosenberg gives you the nitty gritty about what's popping in the streets.

Take heed young rapppers, because due to the lack in artist development your shy asses are more likely to have to go up to the big dogs yourselves. No middle man.

Video: Training Wheels??? Man, Go F*ck Yourself...

Very very interesting. And most of all Abstract.

Danny MacAskill (Yeah we know) shows us that sometimes you just have to get on and go. We'd like to say this, to us, is like what happens when you mix the ever so popular and growing Parkour with freestyle BMX.

As if you weren't waiting for this to drop from the gracious skies of the internet.

This record features production from DJ Khalil and sports quotables such as:

"The flow runnin' on B.I.G's heels/ Life After Death, B.I.G aint get to see how this feels" - Pusha T

"Got head from a girl in Special Ed/ You know the pretty ones in that dumb claaaaass. But she got that dumb ass." - Mr. West

"A far cry from the stash in the rental van/ I'm the reason the hood need dental plans" - Malice

That hook is so summertime.

Listen/ Download Here. Nicki Minaj Feat. Lil Wayne - Go Hard

Nothing much to really say. Between Her, Canadian new comer & actor Aubrey Graham, and Lil' Weeziana we're concluding that to be down with Wayne's camp you have to kind of sound like him or be able to front him some rhymes on his downtime.

Just saying...

Video: But...But...I Could Have Sworn That Was You On Twitter!!!...

When internet phenomena hits the masses they tend to respond promptly. In the case of music marketing, it doesn't make sense to some artists to use "popular marketing tools" due to the fact that not using them may maintain their efforts to soft market towards that crowd.

T.I explains why he isn't on twitter...

T.I, you shun Twitter but you embrace the black arms market. You winnin' son, you winnin'.

Gear: Lupe Fiasco Kickin' It For A Cause...

So if you can remember as far back as the middle of last year we gave you the scoop on a select pair of Chuck Taylor models for Converse's (Product) RED line of apparel that was supposedly endowed with inspiration from Chicagoan hip-hopper Lupe Fiasco. Rumor has it that the shoes, seen here in its hightop form, will be released by the week's end. Select David Z locations shall have them in stock, while those not near a brick and mortar store can purchase them Here, online.

We've read from various sources online that the pre-release sample versions had quality issues regarding easy wear and tear around the crucial flex points. Hopefully these issues have been addressed by the final products release.
