Lloyd to joint the Interscope roster.


Lloyd recently confirmed that he would be joining Interscope records for the release of his new album.  While most people expected him to sign with Cash Money-Young Money, the 24 year old singer stated that C.M.Y.M.’s proximity to Motown Records was the reason he did not.  Lloyd’s last 2 albums produced under the Motown label were in his opinion, underdistributed.

“I don’t feel the need to rush to release an album. It’ll be out later this year. I got a couple of title options, but I’m not 100 percent sure yet, I love the way Interscope gets down. I love the way Jimmy [Iovine, label head] gets down. I’ve always had a good working relationship with Polow [da Don, producer]. Having that creative partner is something I wanted to have, since the very beginning, to have that one creative partner. Mike [Jackson] had it with Quincy [Jones], Janet [Jackson] had it with Jimmy [Jam] and Terry [Lewis]. Justin has it with Timbaland. I feel that me and Polow have something special. I’m really looking forward to that. I also admire Jimmy [Iovine] as a producer. He loves producers. He’s got Will.I.Am, DR, Dre, Polow, the Neptunes, Timbaland. That’s what he does. I’m looking forward to it.”

Lloyd recently released a new single with samples from Ray Charles ‘Unchain My Hear’, and features a verse from Mystikal (…yeah, I know).   After the release of the single, and question as to his new album, Lloyd stated,  “This year I’m really focused on a classic album and staying in the public eye with more guest features. I have a few surprise collaborations coming. In the past two months I’ve recorded some really surprising features that will shake up the game a little bit.”

Every so often, at a gallery, or art show, a piece of art catches your eye, be it a painting, sketch, or photograph.  Most of the time the artists who produce these pieces and display them for the world, have 2 or 3 out of their entire collection that out shines everything else around it.  It’s very rare to find a painter, sketch artist, or photographer who’s every single piece is a masterful work that grabs your attention, and demonstrates that individual is master of their craft.  Audrey Amelie is the type of photographer that displays this type of rare skill with her photos.  Click the pics to see more of her work.

One time, at Band Camp…


Bandcamp.com

Every artist in or out of the game has to have an outlet to publicize their music. For most right now that outlet is the over used, over saturated, easily manipulated myspace music. It’s just as easy to find a person with html knowledge to change the number of page views you have, and the number of daily plays as it is to pose as another artist, or steal their material. And even if an up-and-coming artist was legitimate, he has no way of telling who’s listening to his music and what their responses are to it. The music site Bandcamp.com aims to fix these issues, and has defiantly hit the bullseye. The site provides a clear-cut space to display your music with no limits as to how many songs your allowed. The artist or band can also get a very in-depth look at which songs their fans are listening to all the way through, partially listening to, or are skipping all together. The band has the ability to choose their own price for their song if they wish to charge, (with no money being profiteered by Bamdcamp), and can also see any and all links posted about their music from Bandcamp. This new site will soon become the blueprint by which many other music sites are built, trust me. I’m not just a spokesperson… I’m a member. The site is free, so check out http://www.bandcamp.com to set yours up, or refer a friend with an interest in their music being heard.

I like to Move it, Move it.


Check the video from Gamepro. (And that is NOT me inside the bubble)

Sony recently unveiled their ‘Playstation Move’. Essentially its the Nintendo Wii in the gym… with a protein shake… on steroids… with the combined strength of every Power Ranger… after eating Mister T… and Vin Diesel. Click the picture for an exclusive video from Gamepro.
