Konshens – “Gal Dem Sugar” (Video)

You see the title, and I know you thought what I thought… Konshens better not be trying to ‘slick bite’ off Beenie Man and Mya’s “Girl Dem Sugar” or else. But hold up, you get into the music (which is good) and the video (yup, that good-good), and realize that it kinda is. However, I took this as Konshens’ channeling of the essence of that BeenieMya. Massive cool dancehall is the result. Nice!

Jamaican reggae and dancehall artiste Konshens presents the official music vide for his 2016 single, “Gal Dem Sugar,” directed by RD Studios and G. Spence. Filmed on location in Jamaica.

Talib Kweli x Styles P – “Nine Point Five” feat. Sheek Louch x Jadakiss x NIKO IS (Video)

Kill all the yapping. Not here for the chit-chat. The dope beat and the damn lyrics are what’s happening! Yessir!!

Several ‘hot spots’ in this “Nine Point Five” jawn off “The Seven” LP. The one you might miss is Kweli mentioning ‘uncomfortable feelings’ listening to “Planet Rock” (re: Afrika Bambaataa’s recent controversy). Jadakiss’ spit is the truth, too: “Hip-Hop ain’t as dead as it looks.”

Damn right, Jada! Respect to all on this track.

Famous Impersonator Navi Takes On The Role He Was Meant For In ‘Michael Jackson: Searching for Neverland’ (Teaser Trailer)

So Lifetime is gonna do The King Of Pop’s biopic. Interesting. Wonder if it will be more something for the fans, or really go into the never-talk-about parts of the ruler of Neverland.

Based on the best-selling book, Remember the Time: Protecting Michael Jackson In His Final Days, and told through the eyes of Jackson’s trusted bodyguards, Bill Whitfield and Javon Beard. The movie will reveal firsthand the devotion Michael Jackson had to his children, and the hidden drama that took place during the last two years of his life.
– Movie Trailers HD

Seeing that they got the guy who played Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) on AMC’s The Walking Dead. Looks like some good work by Jackson impersonator Navi in there, too. Looking forward to this movie. Check out the teaser above.

Snoop Dogg – “Trash Bags” (Live Performance)

These guys know how to mix fun and serious business. Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg doing the damn thing on the tube again; not ‘roasting’ on Comedy Central, rather with Snoop performing “Trash Bags” on Jimmel Kimmel Live.

And the re-THICK-ulous dancing girls on stage made it an extra ‘special’ night on stage. But for something really special, hit the jump (more footage of Snoop’s time with Kimmel).

Eye Candy: Bea Taylor (Instagram Girls) [Video]

Imagine Bea Taylor on some ‘kick in the door waving the .44’ sh!t and hollering, “Who want it with Bea?!!”

As fine as she is, at great risk to my personal safety, I would be like, “Me… I want it with Bea.” Because I’d be possibly taking that bullet for all y’all, homies. Becuase that’s how much I care about y’all… and about THICK models with banging bodies and a slight ‘crazy’ streak (hahahaaa).

Now, goooo! Get out of here fam! I’ll hold her off, by holding onto her hips and holding her close while she’s wining on me like in the video above. Might make me play that Shurwayne Winchester and shoot my shot, because I got a “Wining Addiction” most def!!!

Watch Joe Budden ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

This is stupid trash… and I’m sorry…
Joe Budden

Bwaaaahahaaaa! I kinda expected frankness and shots from Jumpoff Joe. And he certainly delivers. What makes it funny, extra funny, is that he remains super-mellow while giving out the ratings.

Awesome that Budden knows half the emcees by their bars, too.

Philadelphia 76’er Joel Embiid Makes A Play For Rihanna At The Bar (Video)

I mean… look at myself!

Hahaaaaa! You know how some athletes might clam up, play tough or off-brush when talk show hosts hint at blatantly push a love-life line of questionning? That is NOT Joel Embiid’s problem…AT ALL!

Shoot your shot, player! Not mad at you. Of course, you might consider that Jamele Hill is looking pretty nice and Kelly Rowland is hella sexy (as always); and they’re right there.

Because we’re considering it. Yeaaahhh, considering all that right now…

Ice Cube Reveals That “Last Friday” Is In The Works, Gives James Corden A BIG3-Style Hand Check And More (Video)

Marketing GENIUS! For one, going on the ‘Late Late Show’ rocking the BIG3 tee shirt and ‘demonstrating’ some expected rough stuff from his new basketball league (more on BIG3 here) on host James Corden in this segment… then, THENNNN letting it ‘slip’ that another installment of the beloved ‘Friday’ movie series (“Last Friday,” apparently) is in the works. Plus, Jason Derulo giving big-ups to the OG off top. ‘Today was a good day’ for Oshea J. Setting up for a good year!

Ice Cube and Jason Derulo had a blast on ‘The Late Late Show’ on Tuesday night (May 16), with Cube laying down a hard hand-check on host James Corden and Derulo busting out his best Michael Jackson moves.

Nas – “Systematic” (Prod. By DJ Shadow) [Video]

Making the HBO soundtrack for the “Silicon Valley” series kind of puts Nas and DJ Shadow on the path to must-drop-music-video for their jawn “Systematic,” doesn’t it? Well, if you peeped above you already know that question was rhetorical.

Enjoy the lyrical visuals for the dope auditorial. You’re welcome.

You can pre-order the “Silicon Valley” soundtrack from Mass Appeal Records (due out this June).

Watch Remy Ma ‘Rate The Bars’ (Video)

Wow, Remy Ma is RAW! Weezy scores a 2. She recorded with Montana and he got the lowest score she could give. Zero for Fabolous and Joe Buddens, too. EVERYBODY can get it!

Interesting. Remy gave higher than expected rank to enemy-as-of-late Nicki Minaj. Seems like true ratings can come through when you cannot match the lyrics to Hip-Hop’s Who’s Who. Bars matter, not an emcee’s so-called ‘status’ in the game.

Eye Candy: Kristyn Alexis Tries Models Swimsuits Like Only She Can (Video)

Whew! Kristyn Alexis keeps ’em coming *wink*

(Wait, it’s noon, right? Good. Hahahaaaa!)

So, sometimes I wonder if Kristyn Alexis knows just how sexy she is. Damn! Her understated descriptions of the swimsuits she is wearing – using terms like ‘cool’ and ‘super cute’ – don’t go anywhere near far enough in describing how HOT the outfits (or the model) are. Then again, she is ‘promoting’ the product to buyers. Then again, again, many of those buyers HAVE to be clicking product into their shopping carts because of how sexy Kristyn (with her THICK azz) is rocking swimsuits like these.

Star Trek: Discovery (First Look Series Trailer)

YES!!! Debuting on CBS television, then moving to CBS All Access, the first new Star Trek TV series in 16 years is on the way. Coming this Fall, Star Trek: Discovery! Full disclosure: I am VERY biased in favor of this series for three huge reasons: For one, because Star Trek. Second, there’s my major crush on star Sonequa Martin-Green (whose character went out like a G on AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ a few weeks ago). And then, yooooo, when Michelle Yeoh gives the order to ‘contact Starfleet’ because they have ‘engaged the Klingons’ … I got the same tingles when Captain Piccard (Patrick Stewart) delivered the classic line back in the day (“We have engaged The Borg”).

Before Kirk, Spock and the Enterprise there was Discovery. Now, one of the most iconic and influential global franchises returns to television with Star Trek: Discovery. The CBS All Access Original Series arrives this Fall.

Maaaan, I got two boners. Nerd boner. And, well, it’s almost noon, right?

Black Lightning (First Look Series Trailer)

If you remember the B-rate “Black Vulcan” hero from the old, old Superfriends cartoon that used to come on in, like, the 1970s and 1980s… Don’t worry, this is NOT that. Not much cheese being teased in this DC series trailer. At all! Way to go DC. Looks like you folks are learning what Marvel / Netflix has to teach you about making small screen storytelling. Now, if the TV folks (esp. the producers of The Flash and Arrow) could pass some notes to the DC movie makers. Shot.

In fact, I wil go ahead as say it before you do: This trailer for DC’s newest forthcoming hero series – “Black Lightning” – looks and feels a LOT like some LukeCage-meets-Daredevil ‘ish. No shot, just saying.

(Oh, on that shot at DC movies, the first two ‘Superman’ movies were good (RIP Christopher Reeve), Michael Keaton ‘Batman’ vs. Jack Nicholson ‘Joker’ was groundbreaking, and ‘The Dark Knight’ trilogy was dope. Respect due. Just that recent ‘Superman vs. Batman’ and ‘Suicide Squad’… at best, on a scale of wack to dope, they score a solid meeeehhh. Solid, but meh).

But these two are on the ‘outs’ because, according to YONAS, she “F#cked Up.” Check out the video for the song (produced by Benjamin).

Big Boi Says White Suits Are Overrated, But How About Blowjob Robots And Other Stuff? (Video)

Big Boi rates bowling, blowjob robots (what??!), Atlanta’s oldest strip club, Hatsune Miku, Sade, pre-rolled joints, and more… No scale, just judging things as ‘pass’ or ‘passed over’ – Over/Under [rated] that is.

Pharrell Williams Talks Praises Kaytranada’s Signature Sound And More (Video)

Pharrell Williams and Scott Vener in the OTHERtone studio with Kaytranada. Appreciation from your peers, even as a producer, is one thing. But props from Pharrell… commendable, noteworthy, epic!

At first, Pharrell had trouble describing Kaytranada’s music and its consistent effect on the listener; then he settled on ‘signature sound’ as a descriptor. Nice.
