Clique (Live Remix) – DJ Enferno


Big-Sean-Jay-Z-Kanye-West-Clique-580x337

Although I don’t normally sport too many other DJ’s on this site… (for obvious reasons), you have to recognize skill and talent when you see it.  Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Big Sean’s massive hit Clique is a brilliant song on its own, but sometimes a DJ remix is never a bad thing.  DJ Enferno has a masterful live remix that he uploaded online not too long ago, and the video is beyond note-worthy.  Check the method below.

Slvstr ‘Season:00’ Look Book.


 

For a long time, I’ve been looking for clothing with simple style, that still stands out from the gambit of street wear out there right now.  Recently I found exactly what I was looking for when I was introduced to the Slvstr line.  The first collection styled to mock current luxury brands instantly intrigued me.  And Slvstr’s “Blue Panther” ideology behind the clothing got me interested in more work from the lead designer Reggie Sylvester.  To find out more check out the official site at Slvstr.com

Alicia Keys ft. Nicki Minaj – Girl On Fire (Official Video).


R&B diva Alicia Keys releases the song “Girl On Fire” as the lead single from her fifth album of the same name due for global release on November 27 via RCA Records! “Girl On Fire” is a strong female empowerment anthem, with a fantastic nod-along hard and steady drum beat, and piano bits. Great inspiring lyrics too, and AK kills it on the vocals. So wide, so clear, so powerful. “Girl On Fire” was debuted live at the 2012 VMAs.

“Soft in the Paint”.


The term “Homo-Thug” tends to refer to homophobic gangsters that refuse to come to terms with their sexuality.  That being said, the guys in this skit must be extremely secure, because they do a great, and incredibly hilarious job of joking about a topic so many urban youth are weary of.  Check the method.

The 60 Million View Video For ‘Gangnam Style’.


“Gangnam Style” is a Korean language colloquialism that refers to a luxurious lifestyle associated with the Gangnam district, an affluent and trendy area of Seoul.  The music video features Psy dancing at various locations in Gangnam.  The “skewering of the Gangnam image” by the “non-Gangnam PSY” is recognizable to Korean viewers, but those less familiar with the cultural context have found the video “fresh” amidst the teen pop idol groups increasingly popular with overseas viewers.  The video is a massive hit on YouTube garnishing around 60 million views.  Check the method.

Redman – Drank In My Cup (Freestyle).


I’m obviously a huge fan of music in general, and music that comes from my home state of New Jersey, I’m especially fond of.  Just when we all thought the freestyles on Kirko Bangz popular track were over, Redman comes out of nowhere and drops his own rendition. Guess we can expect a new album soon, and I’m ready to hear it.

Samuel L. Jackson – Beez In The Trap.


Millions of Nicki Minaj fans all over the world not only love and adore her music, but are enthused by the way she dresses.  The pink wigs, the crazy costume-esque attire, and the wild and crazy accessories all add to Minaj’s swagger.  But it’s rare to see someone who would wouldn’t expect taking on Nicki’s pink wig, and singing one of her songs… Much less Samuel L Jackson, one of the most gangster mother f*ckers of all time.

For The Halo Heads…


Halo 4 and the Master Chief got its gameplay debut yesterday during Microsoft’s E3 2012 conference with a colossal gameplay trailer using both live action and also Xbox 360 in-game footage.

Originally thought to be the flagship game for the potentially upcoming Xbox 720, the now Xbox 360-bound trailer shed light on both what the Halo 4 single player campaign would look like and also showcased both the new-look Covenant and ancient foes the Forerunners.

Halo 4 storyline:

The trailer also shed light on the Halo 4 plot revealing that the Master Chief would not be the only human stranded on the Forerunner planet, he will be joined by the surviving crew members of the UNSC Infinity, a titanic exploration vessel that has been pulled onto the planets surface.

Halo 4 weapons:

Appearing for the first time are the Forerunners, previously mentioned but never-before-seen creators of the Halos and the Ark. Combining both technology and organic life they bring with them an entirely new arsenal of weapons that will sit alongside the classic Halo Battle Rifle.

Halo 4 characters:

Finally the trailer was able to expand further on the relationship between the Master Chief and Cortana, the ancient AI that he both protects and relies on for help.

While little is known about her, Cortana’s back story was touched on by Halo Reach and looks to be expanded upon by Halo 4 with the Artificial Intelligence having to face the prospect of mortality.

Halo 4 release date:

Microsoft have revealed that the Halo 4 release date is 6th November and will be exclusively available for Xbox 360 with both the standard version and a Limited Edition available.

Rihanna Nude.


Rihanna isn’t known for covering up, so it’s no surprise that she dared to bare it all in new behind-the-scenes photos from a shoot for her upcoming fragrance, which is appropriately titled Nude.  The singer’s pal Melissa Forde posted the sexy pics on Instagram with the caption, “#Nude Behind the scenes for new fragrance photo shoot.” In the photos, Rihanna poses topless, donning a blond wig for several seductive photos.  Nude will be Rihanna’s third fragrance. She released Reb’l Fleur in spring 2011 and Rebelle in December.

Will.I.Am ft. Eva Simons – This Is Love (Official Video).


Will.I.Am’s next single “This Is Love” is sure to do better than his first single “T.H.E”. Here is the video for this Steven Angello produced track with Eva Simons on the hook.

No Church In The Wild.


Instead of kaleidoscopic wizardry and flashy, Aziz Ansari-approved sports cars, the bleakly shot, Romain Gavras-directed video focuses on a violent yet somehow vaguely boring uprising in the streets of Prague. Dissatisfied youth, aggressive police, burning cars — you get the idea.  While watching it, I was secretly wishing that one of the rioters would take off his bandana and reveal himself to be Jay or ‘Ye, ready to spice things up a bit. Alas, prayers fell on deaf ears, and five minutes later, the video ends with… more rioting.  I’m not saying we have to see famous people in every music video, but when a project is basically built on megastar wattage like the Throne is, it wouldn’t hurt.  Check the method.

Chicago vs. Chicago: Round 2 (Extended Version).


Last summer New Era paid homage to the bitter rivalry between the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox with a series of commercials featuring comedic actors Alec Baldwin and John Krasinski.  This spring, the sports apparel company has shifted its focus to the Windy City where Chicago White Sox fan Craig Robinson (Daryl from “The Office”) and Cubs fan Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson on “Parks and Recreation”) can’t seem to agree on anything.

Revisiting The Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.


Being a huge Top Gear fan, I’m always watching BBC America, and one of the few other shows I love on the network is the Graham Norton show.  Its like your average late night talk show, but with a little more British swag.  Among the guests on Graham’s sofa are Hollywood star Will Smith, who stars in new film Men in Black III, and Will sat down to do one of his most classic songs ever.
