The PartyCloud.

When it comes to different amalgamations of Disk Jockeying, there is an endless field of ways to show your talent with the same act.  iPads, iPods, DJ controllers, beat pads, or turn tables, can all be used to rock a crowd, but with the advent of Party Cloud, things have changed a little.  Using any computer with an internet connection, a DJ can potentially spin a party using just the website alone.  For me personally I don’t know if its more a useful tool, or yet another way for people to cheapen an art (much like Guitar Hero did for people who ACTUALLY play those songs on the guitar).  But check it out and let the crew know what you think.

2 Chainz Vs. Pusha T In Madden 13

Looks like a G.O.O.D. match up. (sorry I couldn’t help myself). 2 Chainz and Pusha T let the fingers do the talking as they square off in a game of Madden ’13 as they play the EA Sports video game that just was recently released. Check the method.

Unreal SkateBoard Tricks.

After seeing skateboarders like Rodney Mullen(Creator of flatland), Tony Hawk (did the first indy 900) pull off cool tricks while skating most people thought that they would never see great talent like that for a while. But this skater has come out of no where and has performed some amazing tricks. His name is Kilian Martin and he is a spanish skateboarder from Madrid. He has created a new skateboard style which basically involves him using the skateboard to its full extent while free-styling and pulling out crazy tricks.


Terry Crews Makes Muscle Music.

Terry Crews, will be infinitely known as the loud and more muscle-y Old Spice guy. He is back with a raucous new project for the men’s care brand—Old Spice Muscle Music. In the Vimeo video below, Terry’s muscles are all hooked up to musical devices—snare drums, bass drums, tom-toms, tambourines, guitar, bike horn, woodblock, even a “flame sax” set of three saxophones. When he flexes each muscle, an instrument plays—flex them all furiously, and you get a symphony of muscle-y sound. I literally laughed until I was rolling on the ground when I first saw this.

50 Cent Discusses ‘New Day’ Track.

50 Cent’s Street King Immortal single, “New Day” featuring Dr. Dre and Alicia Keys, has been gaining traction ever since his release. But, like with any song that involves Dr. Dre, there’s a lot that goes into it.  In this new interview the hip-hop mogul goes into the story behind the record, how the beat, verses, and everything else together, and what it took for it to drop.  The song is the lead single off 50’s upcoming Street King Immortal album, slated to drop November 13th.

Lupe Fiasco – Bitch Bad

Lupe Fiasco’s new track and video, “Bitch Bad,” attempts to examine the complications of the word “bitch,” specifically in hip-hop. The lyrics tell the tale of two kids — one a little boy and one a little girl — who interpret and internalize the word in different ways.
