With all the drama recently surrounding Chris Brown, not to be overlooked is the upcoming release of his long-awaited sixth LP, X, which will finally hit shelves September 16. As a final push before the project drops, Chris Brown releases the video for the Ariana Grande assisted single “Don’t Be Gone Too Long.” In the fairy tale treatment, Breezy is tasked with saving his cinnamon apple, Grande, from the evil ruler. X will contain 21 songs with appearances from Lil Wayne, Tyga, Usher, Rick Ross, Kendrick lamar, Trey Songz, Akon, Nicki Minaj and Aaliyah.

Asher Roth ft. Akon – Last Man Standing.


It’s always fun to see a music video for a song you’ve liked for quite some time, just like its fun to see an artist who’s work you’ve appreciated for quite some time coming around and putting a unique spin on a classic idea.  Asher Roth is back with the video for ‘Last Man Standing’ which is formatted like flipping though a comic book, but done unlike many of the other pseudo-cliche videos of its kind.  Check the video out below.

T-Pain, Akon, Busta Rhymes – Jungle Booty.

There are quite a few discussions per week between my friends and I that concern hilarious things that rappers, actors and sports stars do or say, but last night I was crying with laughter.  One of my favorite new songs on the web by T-Pain, Akon, and Busta Rhymes happened to cause a stir with one of my homeboys.  (Duckworth of Tokyo 24).  He was a bit puzzled by the fact that someone could actually enjoy a song titled “Jungle Booty”, however, after the first minute of listening to the track, he was quite understanding.  Despite the odd title, the song has a solid club-aimed beat, and 3 of the best musicians in the hip hop game to date on it… so how could it not be good?  Click the pic to take a listen.

Let Me Just Make This Statement Loud And Clear, Jersey’s Here.


So I want to make this perfectly clear before I begin, I have nothing against Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, or The Real House Wives Of New Jersey.  So now that we have that out of the way, I’m writing this because DJ Pauly D was in San Francisco recently, spinning at one of the largest clubs in the bay.  (And congrats to him, I spun that club when I was 21, but it only took him 2 years of being famous and 30 years of life to get on the same tables).  But after his club appearance, I was hit with a blazing tempest of questions about New Jersey from people… Questions like if everyone in NJ is like the cast of Jersey Shore/Jerseylicious, or folks asking me how it feels to have the most influential people out of New Jersey to be J-Wow and Snookie.  I even had someone ask if my mother was like one of the “Real Housewives of New Jersey”.  So I just want to make this clear to a few folks, and make a ”short” list of people who have done something substantial that were born or raised in New Jersey, just so were clear.  Check the method below.
