Nicki Minaj – “Good Form” feat. Lil Wayne (Video)

Is it wrong that Nicki goes to the front of the line on the blog-o-sphere because of her unmatched sexiness? Well, if so, I don’t wanna be right! At the very least her visuals are gonna be HOTTTTT!! So, we win there. Plus, she can go. Plus, maybe there’s a Weezy fan out there.

(Whatever you need to get comfortable with this latest ‘Nooner’ post… ’cause you gone get this Nicki WORK off her “Queen” album!!)

Comedy: Rap Stars Read ‘Mean Tweets’ From Fans (Video)

Hilarious! Yeah, all of the trolls who flex that ‘keyboard courage’ on social media, see Remy Ma with your Twitter fingers and you could catch them hands… My vote for best part is definitely Remy’s response. But the whole video is awesome. Kudos to all featured for being good sports.

Swizz Beatz & Friends Show 100,000+ Fans And The World ‘I Love Haiti’ (Video)

“Putting together this concert was important to me because I wanted to provide the Haitian people a platform of hope and unity through music.”
Olivier Martelly, Big O Productions CEO

A little footage (above) and a few pictures (after the jump) to show Hip-Hop having big heart! Shout to the people of Haiti. Earthquakes & the thievery related to relief efforts, ethnic cleansing & racism in the Dominican Republic, persistent poverty and despair… and still the people of Haiti push through. That’s real.

That said, it’s only right to shine a light on artists who try to bring a little light into dark times for a people. Haiti’s Big O Productions brought multi-platinum artists Swizz Beatz (who partnered with Martelly to make this happen), Chris Brown, and Lil Wayne to join Haitian Artists T-Micky and Barikad Crew in Port-au-Prince to present a FREE six-hour concert event for the over 100,000 people that attended. Actress/Model Kate Upton, Haitian-American boxer Andre Berto and Def Jam records exec Bu Thiam were also in attendance.

“This was a very humbling experience,” said Swizz Beatz following the concert. “To see the number of Haitians come out during a time like this was amazing…. The energy was perfect.”

ESPN: Miami Heat’s Relationship With Miami’s Music Scene (Video)

Some do indeed fly south, to join others already in South Beach, for the winter… for basketball Miami Heat season! ESPN put together a piece on music notables like Birdman and Weezy, Jimmy Buffett and others who come on down court side to catch the games. Lil Wayne is not necessarily a Miami Heat fan though to say the least.

President Obama, Denzel, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, and Chris Rock all rolled into the studio for Sway in the Morning’ for an interview. Yep, all of them… in the person of Jay Pharoah (comedian, cast member on NBC’s Saturday Night Live). The man has a knack for mimicry and tomfoolery. Fun clip.

R&B: Keyshia Cole – “Enough Of No Love” (Video)

New video directed by Philly’s favorite son Benny Boom for ‘Enough Of No Love’ featuring Lil Wayne. After a short absence from the music scene Keyshia Cole is prepping to release her next album ‘Woman 2 Woman’ later this year. Definitely a visually dope looking video…

Bobby V – “Mirror” feat. Lil Wayne

New single from Atlanta based R&B artist Bobby V featuring Lil Wayne. No doubt the record sounds good, but I could have done without the Lil Wayne verse to this joint. If Bobby V is smart he’ll release a no rap version to this joint when he finally drops his album ‘Dusk To Dawn’ tentatively scheduled for October 2nd…..

MTV Names Their Hottest Rappers In The Game For 2012 (Video)

I labeled this as “MTV’s Hottest Emcees Rappers In The Game” because not everyone on this list is an “emcee”….some are just rappers or singers. Either way it is what it is…Rap lists these days don’t hold much weight, but if you’re a real hip hop head like myself then you’ll chuckle out loud at some of things said by people on this panel. Ah well…What’d you expect from MTV & the current state of radio & rap music these days…Overall it’s just a reflection of how bad “mainstream” rap music is. There’s plenty of great music out there, but most of it ISN’T on the radio unfortunately. One thing I was surprised about was seeing the homie @BosNaud was on this panel. I haven’t looked at all the vids as of yet so I hope he represented well. Check out links to the discussion on the other candidates on “MTV’s 2012 Hottest Rappers On The Radio Payola” “MTV’s 2012 Hottest Rappers In The Game” list below….

Kanye West & Lil Wayne Mark Their Debut as DJs on NYE 2012 (Video)

Kanye West was the featured DJ at a party in Las Vegas for New Years Eve 2012. Many of the reviews from people we’ve peeped on twitter have been mixed for the new DJ now known as “Yeezy World Peace.” Meanwhile in Miami, Lil Wayne kicked off his part-time career as a DJ on New Years Eve as well. I know plenty of professional DJs out there are pissed that more & more celebrities are stepping into their lane, but I feel like more DJs should just market & promote themselves more. Technology changes the whole DJ game but marketing & promoting yourself never will. Check out more video below…

Behind The Scenes: Game – “Martians Vs. Goblins” Shoot (Video)

Glad to see a video coming for one of my favorite songs from Game’s “R.E.D.” album. Definitely one of the best albums to have dropped this year & the videos keep coming…

B.O.B. – “Strange Clouds” feat. Lil Wayne (Video)

Dug this song the first time I heard it….the video thou? Hmmmmmm…let me dwell on it for a few replays.

Jay Z responds to Lil Wayne??? (Video)

Jay vs Wayne in the “read between the lines” match of the century. I feel like if you have to beef subliminally then you should let the tension go. If you can’t formally address people by name then I can’t believe that its real but then again WTF do I know?


Lil Wayne’s Record Sales Of ‘The Carter IV’ Exposes Problem with Hip Hop Pundits & Influencers

Lately there’s been a huge uproar from hip hop journalists & bloggers who are in disbelief about Lil Wayne’s record sales numbers of his new ‘Carter IV’ album.  First of all sales don’t determine if an album is good or not, but many critics are still making a big deal of it especially considering many of these said critics were still in a celebratory mood following the release of the first week sales figures of Kanye & Jay-Z’s  Watch The Throne album.  Although I’m not much of a Lil Wayne fan, I don’t think his first week sales numbers of over 940,000 are too far off based on the diverse group of fans that Weezy has.   Lil Wayne’s fans cross a wide variety of demographics from teenage girls, skateboarders, hipsters, hood fellas, hip hop heads, rockers, & maybe even sports fans.  If you’ve been fortunate to travel to other countries like I have over the years you would know that Lil Wayne is more popular than Jay-Z in many places.  I’ve seen it & I’ve also interviewed fans about their favorites.  Check out the  article below from writer Hyun Kim as he adequately breaks down the reason for Lil Wayne’s success with sales of the Carter IV album.  His article is the most intelligent, researched, fact based & thorough assessment as to WHY sales of the Carter IV did better than Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch The Throne album which was heavily supported by many of the same critics.

This is pretty funny! “Yo Jigga this is Hov. You got that new Jordan plane?”

DJ Khaled’s Single With Drake Called ‘I’m On One’ Should Include Talib Kweli (Opinion)

When I first heard this song I thought it was a good R&B record for Drake, but later I found out it was for DJ Khaled’s upcoming album. I haven’t been a fan of DJ Khaled’s recent projects because they had the terrible distinction of being & sounding completely the same from the concepts to the audio soundscapes. From the looks of this video DJ Khaled can recognize like I can that Drake gave him a hit record with this song. It’s easy to see why DJ Khaled is going all out with a full promotional campaign with ‘I’m On One’ theme, but I can’t help but think about Talib Kweli rocking with ‘I’m On One’ earlier this year. Maybe they should find someway to do a full on R&B remix with Talib Kweli doing a verse in some way. Maybe put Talib Kweli on an extended remix or something to those type of fans. Many people probably wouldn’t like that, but I think you should show some type of props to Talib Kweli for rocking with that phrase & song this year first. In case you’re slow I’ve included the link to Talib Kweli’s record from his Gutter Rainbows album below….
