NEW MUSIC VIDEO

KANYE WEST- COLDEST WINTER

I hate the fact that auto-tune has become a movement. Why? Why? Why? are rappers using AUTOTUNE! Makes no sense. As far as the music video, IT'S OKAY, NOTHING SPECIAL. Remember the days when you used to run home to watch the new Michael Jackson music video? That day is over. Music is STARVING for creativity!

TYGA- I'M SO RAW

This is actually a “Freestyle” (or what you new generation rap fans call a freestyle) video. As I stated before, Tyga goes hard on most of his songs. Yall need to stop sleeping on the kid.

THE DREAM- LOVE KING


This song sounds just like SHAWTY IS A 10 and ROCKIN’ THAT THANG. The Dream is TOO TALENTED to recycle his beats. Not hating. Just being REAL. I really love The Dream’s sound and so I hold him to a higher standard.

CAN SCOTT RELIGHT THE sTORCH?

I am definitely hoping Scott Storch makes a comeback in the music game. Technically, Scott has never stopped working, even when he (quote unquote) FELL OFF, he was still producing tracks. Although I haven’t heard a certified SMASH HIT from Scott’s new tracks, I’m sure he’ll BOUNCE BACK and give us that signature sound…

SHYNE SIGNS DEAL WITH DEF JAM

According to Miss Info, rapper Shyne has signed a 7 FIGURE recording deal with Def Jam. I hope this is true because the rap game needs a creative artist like Shyne. Just in case you forgot how GREAT Shyne was when he first stepped on the music scene, I posted his first music video BAD BOYS! Bow!

RAVEN SYMONE: BUILDING A LEGACY

Most people remember Raven Symone as Olivia on The Cosby Show. If you are like me, you continued to follow Raven’s career, which includes a starring role on The Disney series, That’s So Raven and the ever so popular, Cheetah Girls. Yes, ALL of our jaws dropped when we found out Raven Symone’s franchise is worth over 400 million! I was so fascinated by her biography---it’s amazing how much ‘Lil Olivia’ has grown into a power player in the entertainment industry. Check under the video for some more Raven Symone FACTS…




ARTIST:
Currently signed to CASH MONEY RECORDS

Has sold more than 6 million records worldwide and is the 4th Disney Channel artist to achieve best-selling albums during the 2000s


ACTRESS:
In 2002, Raven Symone auditioned for a role on an up-and-coming series for the Disney Channel titled Absolutely Psychic, about a teenager with psychic abilities. Initially, Raven Symone was cast as the role of the best friend. But after being reviewed, Disney executives decided to cast her as …

DRU HILL- LOVE MD

Sure, you can say DRU HILL has fallen off BUT you have to admit THEY CAN STILL SING. Every artist goes thru a time where they aren’t as HOT as they used to be, and that’s when they have to use their TALENT to bring them thru the bad times. Only untalented artists who use their looks to sell records should worry when their star starts to fade because they DON’T have the talent to withstand the hard times…

ERYKAH BADU FEAT. LIL WAYNE AND BILAL- JUMP UP IN THE AIR



Erykah Badu ALWAYS pushes the music envelope. She reminds me of Prince because as far as music is concerned, SHE DOES WHATEVER SHE WANTS TO. She doesn’t allow record labels to determine her style of music. Her new music video, JUMP UP IN THE AIR, further proves my point.

2010 NBA ALL STAR WEEKEND

No other professional all star games hold a candle to NBA ALL STAR weekend. Although Kobe Bryant's injury will keep him out of action this weekend, LEBRON JAMES will be there, and trust me, HE WON'T disappoint! I'll go ahead and predict Bron Bron WILL take the All Star MVP award. BOW!

YUNG BERG- FAVORITE SONG



I don't know what's going on with Yung Berg but it seems he won't be dropping an official album any time soon, so I guess we'll just have to settle for his mixtape releases. The song and video are nothing special (pretty typical for Berg) but nonetheless, his fans will appreciate it.

MUSIC VIDEO TRAILER

I don’t get the new TREND in music in which artists market MUSIC VIDEO TRAILERS but who I am to judge???? Anyway, watching a music video trailer DOES NOT make me want to see the music video any more than JUST PUTTING THE VIDEO OUT!!

MUSIC NEWS: JANET JACKSON FEATURE?

The word on the street is, Janet Jackson will be featured on Pitbull’s new song entitled NOT MY LOVE. I found a demo version of the song…therefore, the video features a male singer who did a demo version of Janet’s part. Although it’s not MS. JACKSON, the singer does his best Janet impersonation. I’m looking forward to hearing the finished product because Janet RARELY does hooks for other artists.

MUST SEE MOVIES

REPO MAN



REPO MAN probably won’t be a huge blockbuster film but films that get little box office attention are usually really good movies. REPO MAN starring Jude Law and Academy Award Winner Forest Whitaker is a futuristic action-thriller in which humans have extended and improved our lives through highly sophisticated and expensive mechanical organs created by a company called The Union. The dark side of these medical breakthroughs is that if you dont pay your bill, The Union sends its highly skilled repo men to take back its property with no concern for your comfort or survival.

I am a big Forest Whitaker fan, he is a very brilliant actor. I can tell he hands picks his roles very precisely. If you like sci-fi films, this is a MUST SEE MOVIE.



THE A-TEAM



The A-Team is an upcoming feature film based on The A-Team television series. Similar to the original series, the story follows the adventure of four United States soldiers who were arrested for a crime they did not commit. After managi…

TOP 5: AMERICAN IDOLS SINGING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

I wonder where the music world would be without American Idol? If you go beyond all the politics, all the unworthy/untalented contestants, and the controversial/overrated judges, American Idol has bred some of the most talented singers in music industry. I can go on and on about what’s wrong with the show but hearing these talented young ladies makes me think American Idol is doing a lot of things RIGHT.

R&B IS OFFICIALLY BACK: THE QUEEN PROJECT

The newly formed R&B group, The Queen Project is for anyone who appreciates REAL soul music combined with INCOMPARABLE vocals. For those who don’t know, The Queen Project consists of Tamia, Kelly Price, and Deborah Cox. I watched a video on youtube which featured the group rehearsing and I was BLOWN AWAY! When the album drops, GO GET IT, we need to support GREAT music.

No other artist puts more thought into their album covers than PRINCE. Not only is he a superb musician but his artistic vision is second to none. Prince, nothing compares to you.

THE VICK PROJECT: EPISODE 1

Michael Vick's reality show aired on BET on Tuesday night. It was refreshing to see another side of Vick. Sometimes we forget he is a husband and father. After watching the first episode, I will definitely tune in next week or at least catch the show online (honestly, I really don't watch much TV).

BET HONORS- HUDSON AND HOUSTON

JENNIFER HUDSON’S TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON



If I had to choose ONE artist to remake Whitney Houston’s I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, I would definitely choose JENNIFER HUDSON. Whitney is the greatest voice in the history of music. Jennifer is so clean and smooth vocally, I can’t imagine any other singer pulling this one off but J. Hud.

THE SUN DON'T SHINE FOREVER

MYSONNE- VICTORY



The intro of this song is a bit annoying but because it was Mysonne, I waited for the beat to drop. Although it’s not Mysonne’s best work to date, he held it down on this one. On the other hand, I ALWAYS LOVED the VICTORY beat, truly a classic track.

ARTISTS TO LOOK FOR IN 2010
