Outkast Big Boi’s new album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors is in stores now. The album is dope. One of my home team favorites is In The A, ft. T.I. & Ludacris. One three of them went H.A.M. on that joint. But did any of you hear what happened at the video shoot? Being that I’m over here in Beijing, China right now, I’m missing all of the action. So I gotta keep up with what’s happening in my home via word of mouth and internet, thanks to this VPN (Virtual Private Network) I’m using to log into sites the Chinese government censors. Anyway, tonight is a good night for my VPN to work. Shouts out to Big Boi, T.I. and Luda for putting together a vid for this joint. If hadn’t done this, we wouldn’t be catching any of the ratchet action that went down at the shoot. LOL!

It’s been 25 years since the making of the one of the greatest pop albums of all time (Bad) and perhaps 25 years later, it would still be considered as one of the ultimate classic albums. To many, Thriller may have been Michael Jackson’s best selling album; however, it was Bad that gave MJ the King of Pop title. Michael Jackson was not only a musical influence to many; furthermore. he influenced choreography, dance, fashion, etc.
In this short documentary, Bad 25, directed by the great Spike Lee, fans get to witness unseen footage of Michael’s recording process for his 1987 iconic Bad album as well as be surprised to which songs nearly didn’t make the final cut for the album. Guest appearances includes people who Michael worked with as well as admired, from Martin Scorsese, who directed the Bad video, Siedah Garrett (Man In The Mirror, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You), Quincy Jones (executive producer for Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad), Cee-lo Green, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Questlove, Sheryl Crow (actress and former background vocalist for Michael Jackson), Greg Phillinganes (Michael’s keyboardist), Tatiana Thumbtzen and a list of others.

The LOX is the truth man. Styles P is a BEAST! But you know, most BEASTS don’t sell in today’s industry. However, with his new joint, ‘Pop Out’, it still proves that the homie is one of the dopest in this hip hop game to do it.
Check out the video for Styles P ‘Pop Out’ below.

Rapper Shyne should have thought twice before going on a twitter rant about Kendrick Lamar’s g.o.o.d. kid, m.A.A.d city album, calling it trash because now, them boys in killa Cali got their eye on him saying that he better not step foot on California soil. The first to speak was Nipsey Hussle. Hussle via twitter had these words to say to the now Orthodox Jewish, former Bad Boy Records (Sean ‘P. Diddy’ Combs) eMcee.
“If Shyne ever make it bac to the states…somebody tell cuz his west coast pass is revoked.,” he tweeted. (Nipsey Hussle’s Twitter)
And if that wasn’t enough, Curren$y of New Orleans jumped in to spit his piece by saying these words: “What did shyne do? I was Watching American dad …. Missed errthang,” Spitta tweeted.
“F*ck no man….. Kendrick sh*t is slappin….”
“Definitely gonna think about that when I ride to those old shyne albums… Bummer man … I like all music that jams” (Curren$y’s Twitter)
Lamar’s homeboy and fellow rapper, Schoolboy Q finished him off by saying: “We all know @OriginalSHyne AIN’T EATIN!!!!! N*ggaH ain’t Had a Hot verse since 01,” Schoolboy tweeted.
“Surprise He got INTERNET”
“@OriginalSHyne ok mobster/jewisH man ima b quite” (Schoolboy Q’s Twitter)
Will Shyne go silent or will he water down his rant?
More about the break. But in the meantime, kick it about enjoy this 2012 throwback CLASSIC by Snoop Dogg, ‘West Side Riding’, ft. Bad Lucc, Problem, & Daz Dillinger. Also check out The Twinz, E-White, Nipsey Hussle & Kurupt ‘Young Gotti’ in the video.
This video has got to be the most witty-ish, creative driven form of musical art expression in a long time, considering that most music videos, mainly regarding the urban culture is just straight ‘in your face’ with it’s content. Not knocking Lady Gaga, yet when watching her videos, perhaps one things a recycled version of Madonna or perhaps Katy Perry’s the new Cyndi Lauper. While the imagery behind ‘Do Ya Thing’ is still a Gorillaz fashion, it’s star studded features (James Murphy and Andre 3000) add additional elements of creative influence with the unique of their own style.
Check out the official video for ‘Do Ya Thing’ by the Gorillaz, ft. James Murphy and Andre 3000.
2 Chainz & Kanye West has finally released the video for ‘Birthday’, which is a single from Chainz Based On a T.R.U. Story‘s album. The concept for the video is about two guys with a birthday wish, ‘STRIPPERS’. And they got exactly what their desires wished.
Check out the video for 2 Chainz ‘Birthday’ ft. Kanye West.
Snoop is back on his Dogg ish, as he drop his latest video entitled, Super Mario Bros., which is based off the old Nintendo game of the same name. Looking at the title, one may think it’s a friendly game about a video game. But think again. The song is actually about PIMPIN. If anyone can rap about pimpin, then it’s Snoop D-O-double G. Not to mention, he brought a little surprise guest to the mix. His oldest son ‘Spank’ aka Spanky Danky (you wonder why) joins his Super dad on the track. Like father, like son.
Check out Super Mario Bros. by Snoop Dogg and his son ‘Spanky Danky’.

If you’re just tuning into James Todd Smith, famously known as LL Cool J (Ladies Love Cool James), then you probably think of him as ‘Hollywood’ actor. However, real hip hop heads know him as the G.O.A.T. (Greatest of All Times). Remember when the eMcee came with Bad (1987), it was heavy. Yet 25 years later, he’s letting us know that he still got it. So if you ever try breaking into LL’s home, think twice before you make the move.
LL Cool J came face-to-face with a burglary suspect in his home, and took the guy down with his own hands early this morning … TMZ has learned. According to law enforcement sources … the suspect entered LL’s Los Angeles area house around 2AM, but unfortunately for him the actor/rapper/badass was home. We’re told LL heard some commotion downstairs, went to check it out … and found the intruder. Sources say the intruder had tripped LL’s alarm system, but the “NCIS Los Angeles” star — who is a physical beast — decided to go hand-to-hand combat on the dude. (TMZ)
Check out the iconic LL Cool J ‘I’m Bad’ video below.
Yes it is true. Remember when Badu walked through the Dallas, TX streets butt naked for her ‘Window Seat‘ video? Well she’s back with round 2 of the ‘birthday suit show down’. But this time, it’s her sister, Nayrok Badu bearing it all in their newly ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ video. The song itself is a remake of a 1957 folk song written by British political singer/songwriter Ewan MacColl for Peggy Seeger, who was later to become his wife. It’s remake is from the April 2012 of the Oklahoma psychedelic alternative rock band ‘The Flaming Lips’ Record Store Day collaborative double vinyl called ‘The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends’, and features Erykah Badu on the vocals, while the video, which also features Erykah and her sister Nayrok Badu. Combining both nudity and art, the Badu sister appear tastefully naked in the video. Yet have any of you seen the movie, ‘Think Like a Man’? Welll, try thinking like a man right now. LOL!
The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends also features collaborations with Bon Iver, Coldplay, My Morning Jacket, Ke$ha and more. A great album indeed.

No stranger to kissing, she landed one on Madonna, now NAS. Wondering how many takes they did for the kissing scene to Minaj’s “Right By My Side” music video, directed by none other than Benny Boom. For good reasons perhaps. The song features R&B singer Chris Brown and Nas as her love interest in the video.
Check out Nicki Minaj’s “Right By My Side” video featuring Chris Brown, and Nas as her boyfriend.

What has YMCMB done to Aubrey Graham’s ego. Dude is crazy talented I admit. But where’s the integrity? Where’s the respect? I’m by far not ‘holier than thou’ but is 2012 all about GOING OVERBOARD TO STAY RELEVANT? First Nicki Minaj with her RAUNCHY, less than classy ‘STUPID H@%’ song and video. Now DRAKE with this? From what I know about being Judaism, we’ll depending on one’s view of G-d is that, it’s nothing to be played with. I do hope many Jews see this video and speak out against Drake, his YMCMB and Universal Music Group about this mess. The late King of Pop, Michael Jackson was forced to alter his lyrics to ‘They Don’t Care About Us’ (Dangerous, 1991) because of the “Jew Me/Sue Me” line, to which many Jews cried out ‘antisemitism’. Although Drake is Jewish (African American father, Caucasian Jewish Canadian mother), it’s still distasteful and like spitting in the face of the patriarchs of the Jewish culture. I usually don’t go on an attack about one’s freedom of expression (First Amendment). Yet if you’re Jewish or have some understanding about the religion, then get what I’m saying.
Black History Month, gotta pay homage to hiphop legions such as Eric B & Rakim for paving the way for rap and hiphop music today. Before Lil Wayne, Jay Z, and Kanye, there were folk like Eric B &Rakim’, KRS-1, RUN DMC, Curtis Blow, and many more pioneers of Rap/Hiphop. Many thought rap would fade into thin air over a course of years, but now it is the most influential genre in music today…. Check out “I Aint No Joke” by Eric B & Rakim

Outkast very own Andre 3000 has made a return: currently involved in a Gillette Fusion electric razors campaign
Yeah man. It’s always good to see Andre 3000 on the scene being that he doesn’t do much interviews and does every now and then pop-ups on remixes of artists songs. Though it doesn’t appear that the half of Outkast member is crafting new ideas and music for a future Outkast alongside his partner in rhyme Big Boi aka Sir Lucious Left Foot, he is currently involved in a Gillette Fusion electric razors campaign. And while working on a commercial for the popular razor brand, he took time out to give a short interview about the meaning behind style as well as deciding to let his hair grow out.
Take view of the Andre 3000 interview and Gillete Fusion electric razor commercial featuring the rapper/actor alongside Adrien Brody & Gael García Bernal.
