“Why would you call it love when you knew it wasn’t?” – Jhené Aiko
Uh ohhh. Hell hath NO fury… like a woman scorned… or crying… or ready to scratch and scorch your sh!t. But the music and vibe for this Jhené Aiko video for “Comfort Inn Ending” (Freestyle) is still hella nice. And Aiko… still hella cute. Keep your keys in your pocket though.
Mack Wilds does the video for the “Henny” remix (featuring Mobb Deep, French Montana and Busta Rhymes) like it’s ’94… Craig Mack “Flava In Ya Ear” remix style. From the Puffy ‘Bad Boy, come out and play’ clink-clink on down. Modernized. Multiplied the eye candy factor by 5000! That part’s an improvement… visually… plus a dope remix!
Bwaaahaha! Oh well. Shout to Simple Misfits channel but… Daaaamn!! Guess there is NO polite way to tell someone to kiss your azz. Well, dude did warn him at 1:30 (Listen for it: “Somebody gone knock yo’ azz out…”). This video captures TWO of the realest answers to “Wanna kiss my azz?” … everrrr. My fav is from the Indie artist who stayed in grind mode: “Wanna CD?” Watch. Just WATCH!
“I love a hater. I hug ‘em now and hurt ‘em later!” – Dres
Yes! Primo has another ‘Bars in the Booth’ session out. This time Dres (D-R-E-S) got in the booth, got comfortable…destroyed it. This is Hip-Hop: A DJ and an emcee moving the crowd (this includes you) and melting mics. We got the video above. The proof and the truth.
“Thanks to Dres from Black Sheep for being the next up on ‘Bars in the Booth.’ He killed it. We got more ‘Bars in the Booth’ coming soon, so subscribe to the channel so you do not miss a thing. Press Play!!”
– DJ Premier

Snoop has that banging GGN Network. We knew that, but this is a show of a whole other kind. No frills, no jokes, no industry bullsh!t. Underground Heat – a show that is all about the music! Snoop Dogg hosting; sharing his top 10 videos. The top 3 vids and a throwback vid of the week get full play, while snips of the rest are shown. Very dope format! And yes… You (or an emcee you know) can also submit your own videos via the website – www.theundergroundheat.com But come correct… the #1 video this episode is a BEAST! It’s that Pharoahe Monch feat. Diamond D – “Rap Life” we posted on here a bit ago.
Congrats, gentlemen! And respect to all the homies involved including Amond Jackson from Salem Psalms Library who co-directed the flick with Deacon the Villain.
“You done stepped in some guano!” – The Lady of Rage
The launch of DJ Premier’s new all-Hip-Hop-all-the-time site, PremierWuzHere.com, would probably be enough of an event for real heads … but amp that past 10 when he concurrently drops a jewel featuring The Lady of Rage – “Chemical Burn” to celebrate. Release the Kraken!!

Word to the wise, my ‘digger’… Don’t sleep on these Yasiin Gaye releases. RIAA (you know, the Grammy folks) has been having the nice releases taken down due to ‘copyright violations.’ But if you are on top of things you’ll have scooped up hot ones (for FREE) like this before anyone could take them down anyway, right? Boooo… RIAA. Could call it hate. Not beef though.
“Beef don’t come with a radio edit.” First leak from Yasiin Gaye – The Return (Side Two).
- Amerigo Gazaway
This is another Yasiin Bey x Marvin Gaye (Yasiin Gaye) mashup from Amerigo Gazaway entitled “B Stands For Beef” (Soul Mates Tribute).
