The ‘Throwback Thursday’ videos have been off and on over the last two years, but this is only because they need to be the right ones.  I remember it was 2002, and I was in the back of a friends car, getting a ride home from school from some friends, when “I Know What You Want” came on New York’s ‘Hot 97’, and I screamed at the driver not to change the station.  The silky melody and sultry bass lines of the song had me instantly hooked, and the song has been literally my favorite hip hop song ever since.  Check the method and reminisce.

Mom-Song

Old Spice is known for their ‘out of the box’ commercials that get people to talk about them more than they actually advertise their product.  However, the new “Mom-Song” commercial does both pretty effectively.  It’s spreading so fast online that the lyrics pop up on Google like it’s a chart topper.  Check the method below.

Lyrics: “Oh I didn’t see it coming, but it came in a can. Now my sweet son’s sprayed into a man. Mine too and hey we know just who to blame. When our sons have fun with women and misbehave. Old Spice! Old Spice sprayed a man of my son. Now he’s kissing all the women and his chores aren’t done. He was just my little sweetie, tiny fingers hands and feeties. Now he’s touching kissing feeling all the women because Old Spice sprayed a man of my son now he smells like a man and they treat him like one.”

Rapper Snoop Dogg is reportedly releasing a smoke-able lyrics book called “Rolling Words”. The book’s content is entirely printed on rolling paper, made with the help of San Francisco-based agency, Periera & O’Dell. The book features lyrics of Snoop’s classic songs from “Gin & Juice”, “Nuthin’ Like a ‘G’ Thang”, “Beautiful” to “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and many more. “Rolling Words” is packaged in a hemp-like cover with the spine that doubles up as a match-striking surface. The pages are also perforated for easy tearing. The Doggfather himself said that he created the book for one reason: “So people can always remember, you can roll with an expert or you can roll with Snoop.”

Jay-Z Spits (And Decodes) A New Verse At The London Paralympics.


Jay-Z and Coldplay got together for the closing ceremonies of the London paralympics to play the new track “Paradise” take a listen to what Jay said about his verse.

 

The thought behind the verse is, anyone with a disability, just wants a sense of normality – that’s why they’re competing in these games. That was the idea to make the verse as inclusive for as many people, and to make it as normal as possible. It’s influenced by so many different things. There are parts that are influenced by Gabby Douglas, there are parts that are influenced by Ryan Lochte, and by Serena Williams.

It can relate to everybody. ‘You can take everything,’ means whether through some tragedy you lost a limb, like an arm or a leg. Or, it could be something like you lost the mortgage to your house. That’s pretty much the idea.’

I deserve a gold medal, get on my level/
I deserve platinum plaques, to match my bezel/
I walk around with five rings [“five rings” being the Olympic Rings], so pimpish/
Welcome to the/
It’s paradise, this is the story of Gabby/
It’s paradise, it’s paradise/
Tears in her eyes, she sacrificed, he sacrificed, she paid the price/
This is everything, everything she ever dreamed/
She had nightmares she wouldn’t be here, she made the team/
From the projects to the podium, accepting awards with my Rollie on/
Gettin’ Gold medals with my grill in [Ryan Lochte, obviously]/
C-walking, cause all they see is a villain [Serena, obviously]/
More belts than Phelps, Merry Christmas, my presence is felt/
Gold medals around my throat/
You can take everything, except the hope of reaching paradise.

Busta Rhymes ft. Twista – Can You Keep Up.


The two mega mavericks of the fast spitting lyrical style, Busta Rhymes and Twista, have come together again on the track “Can You Keep Up”.   As you can assume by the styles of both lyrical dynamos, the entire track is performed in a ‘mile-a-minute’ style, while a bit hard to understand… is still very impressive.  Check the method below.
