Start Trippin.


Above are two pics from the ‘Stop Trippin’ video, (the bottom being a quick shot of my assistant Ashley F. and I).  Bay Area emcee Jay Cee and R.O.D. teamed up recently with Clayton William to create the track ‘Stop Trippin’.  The song circles around the very relatable situation of having your significant other not realizing the sacrifices necessary to stay afloat in the entertainment industry… hence the title.  I’m quite excited to see the final result of the video, but for now, check out the trailer, and the making of the track before that.

Loiter Squad – Episode 1/Odd Future Afterparty In San Francisco.


Just like many other 18-15 year old males in the U.S., I’ve become a fan of most of the programming on Adult Swim (the off the wall late night programming that comes on Cartoon Network).  As the line up has changed over the years, I’ve had many different programs to look forward to, but a few months ago I got a bombshell dropped on me that Odd Future would be getting their own Adult Swim programming slot.  The people reading this not totally familiarized with O.F. might not understand just how ridiculous that concept seems, but you will soon.  I’ve managed to get my hands on the first episode of the show ‘Loiter Squad’, and not only is it pure unadulterated hilarity, it’s also exact what Adult Swim needed to keep their line-up fresh.  Check the method below.

For those of you who are unaware of the O.F. movement, let me just open up your mind to the situation.  The group is led by rapper/producer Tyler, The Creator, and includes rappers Hodgy Beats, Earl Sweatshirt, Domo Genesis and Mike G, singer Frank Ocean, producers Left Brain, Syd the Kyd and Matt Martians, and other non-musical members, notably Jasper Dolphin, Taco and L-Boy (that appeared in the ‘Loiter Squad’ episode above.)  Their music is a crowd hyping force to be reckoned with, and anyone who wants proof of this needs to go no further than San Francisco.  O.F. is gathering at 330 Ritch on April 9th for a night of intoxicated skullduggery courtesy of Above Ground.  Click the pic below for tickets.

Lil Wayne ft. Bruno Mars – Mirror Mirror Teaser.


Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” was without a doubt a very interesting record.  Weather you purchased the extended CD, downloaded the original, or just heard most of the tracks on the radio, everyone has their favorites.  The track Mirror featuring Bruno Mars was quite a heartfelt entry onto the album, and with the video dropping soon, its no surprise that the label released a teaser.  Check the method below.

Behind The Scenes: Busta Rhymes ft. Chris Brown – Why Stop Now.


Bussa Buss is very well known for his quick-spitting abilities, but the track “Why Stop Now” (which you can listen to above) is a knock out of the park for the lyrical dynamo.  But the video, currently in post-production might just be one for the ages.  Check the behind the scenes footage below.

Donald Glover – Weirdo.


I’ve said publicly many a time that one of my favorite art forms is stand up comedy.  After a rough week of work, there’s nothing else that I enjoy more than just sitting down and watching stand up for hours.  This week my comedian of choice was Donald Glover, star of the show ‘Community’ who also goes by the rap alias “Childish Gambino”.  Below is his hysterical stand up titled “Weirdo”.

Carlos Mencia – Having Perspective.


I had a conversation with one of my best friends about the 2012 elections, and I made some pretty logical points.  During the course of that little talk, a third party asked if I was quoting comedian Carlos Mencia.  After a little research, I found the spot they were talking about.  Check the method below.  All in all, Carlos is just happy that we have a president in office. See Carlos’ new special “New Territory,”

The Ultimate Television Experience.


If you died and went to 3-D TV heaven then I’m sure you would find the Samsung MSTV sitting right in front, in it’s various screen-size (22,32,42,46,55, 64 inches) avatars. Keeping with Sammy’s passion for Android, this TV is a pureblood Google Android baby. And what’s more, you get to sync all your gadgets and devices remotely and splurge on gaming fun.  Check the rest of the post for details.

Red Tails

Now… I specially didn’t write anything about WHY I like the other 4 movies on the list, simply because I’d love YOUR input about what you think will be good and why.  However, although it seems like now a days if your the first black man to do anything, you get your own movie after a handful of decades, I was super intrigued by “Red Tails”.  It’s the story of some of the first African-American fighter pilots in WWII, (much like Tuskegee Airmen) but with the backing of Lucasfilm.  With crazy visuals, both new and veteran actors, and a story that can’t really go wrong, this is one of my most anticipated movies of the next 6 months.
