In today’s music industry, production is crucial to having a career that pays the bills.  When I was growing up, production equipment was expensive or under-developed, and East Coast beats were relatively simple.  I always considered it a disadvantage that I never learned to produce when I was younger, and with a co-DJ (Jeff Phantom) who hadn’t make a deep trek into the production realm, I didn’t think we’d be able to pull off our own music without years of practice.  Luckily veteran producers Joe Major, Rich Lyfestyle, and Clayton William put themselves at our disposal to help DJ Jeff Phantom and myself come up with a project that let us flex our production wings.

The 5 track EP features original remixes of songs from Zedd, Lil Wayne, Katya, Outkast, and even a take on classical music.  Trap as a genre is something that’s growing, weather it’s a fad or not remains to be seen, but what Jeff Phantom and I wanted to do was put a trap twist on some classic, new classic, and classical tracks.  Both Phantom and I teamed up with different producers to get the sounds we wanted in the tracks that we chose, and to take a listen, click or scan the photo below to download.

Iggy Azalea – Work (Official Video)

Iggy Azalea initially hoped to drop her debut album The New Classic last year, but in the time that’s elapsed since then, the Australia native got a chance to perfect her sound, resulting in new songs her official first single, “Work.” For the video, she tells MTV News that she drew inspiration from a classic Australian comedy and from OutKast.

Andre 3000 Is The New Jimi Hendrix. (Seriously).


“Considering how long this has been in development, and the number of similar projects that have fallen by the wayside including a mooted Paul Greengrass directed biopic, and a fictional road trip style movie, we figured the Andre 3000 starring Jimi Hendrix movie was not going to happen. Hell, even as far back as 2008 the actor/rapper himself said, “The funny thing with the biopics [is their uncertainty], I mean, it’s the same thing with ‘Hendrix.’ It’s kinda like, until you are on set doing it you can’t say what’s going on, because everybody wants to do the movie, but there are so many things that go into a biopic.” Well, it looks like the movie is actually going ahead.


Titled “All Is By My Side,” the film is gearing up start lensing in three weeks in Ireland, with a six week production schedule mapped out. John Ridley, the writer behind “Three Kings,” “U-Turn” and the forthcoming “Twelve Years A Slave” has penned the script and will be directing as well, making his sophomore feature effort following 1997′s “Cold Around The Heart.” The film will essentially cover Hendrix’s breakthrough period from 1966 to 1967, when he was discovered in a New York club by Linda Keith, a model and girlfriend of Keith Richards at the time, who introduced him to The Rolling Stones’ manager Andrew Loog Oldham and producer Seymour Stein (who both declined to work with him), and eventually to manager/producer Chas Chandler who helped launch his career. He went to London, recorded Are You Experienced? and the rest, as they say, is history.

No word yet on the rest of the cast, but last summer, Hayley Atwell revealed she was eyeing a role but nothing has been heard since. The big question here is if the film will have rights to the songs, licensing of which tends to be expensive and difficult to come by. But we presume if cameras are set to be rolling, some kind of approval on the film has come down from the musicians’s estate, Experience Hendrix. Either way, we’re curious as hell to see how all this winds up turning out. Are You Experienced? is a fairly defining moment in rock ‘n roll history, and Hendrix is one of the titans, so let’s hope it gets the treatment it deserves.”

Allain Victoria.


There aren’t too many models on the market, or people on the planet that have been in major motion pictures, magazines all over the world, and can boast a 36-24-44 frame.  Allain Victoria however, happens to be one of those folks.  Appearing in both Ray and The Skeleton Key is just the tip of the iceberg of Allain’s success.  This stunning beauty says she often gets confused for being of Latin origin, but is primarily black, and has appeared in music videos by artists like BG, Neyo, Ludacris, Young Jeezy, Juelz Santana, and Big Boi (who is credited with bringing her onto the modeling scene.)  After seeing her in XXL in July of 2010, I recognized how she seems to be incredibly entrancing in every single picture she takes, and no matter what she’s wearing, her body is miraculous.  One of my favorite shots of her is the one below.  Having worked at a strip club in the past, I’ve seen the pink/purple ‘racing babe’ suit many a time.  But I do have to say that it looks the best on miss Victoria.
