That’s Rocawear viral videos celebrate the evolution of hip hop culture. And it a like the apple doesn’t fall from the tree cause Bobby McFerrin’s son uses this Rocawear ad to show off some incredible beat-boxing and productions skills. Beat Boxin can be such a novelty but Taylor keeps the art form legit and his Pops legacy in tack, while walking his own path. This video is nothing short of amazing! Shout out to the video production crew who put this together.
In the first installment of Def Jam’s new viral series features Russell Simmons speaking on first meeting Rick Rubin and starting one of hip hop’s most notable labels. Look out for more clips as they are leading up to the release of a book which will document the likes of LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, Jay-Z, Redman, Rihanna, Kanye West, Public Enemy and more.
I just Found this on the homies Frank 151 website. They always have there eyes open for fresh heat. “What’s better than a combination of a new Wu Tang track and amazing skating? That’s right not too much… Here’s a video that will have both your ears perked up and your eyes glued to the screen as these skaters throw down hard over “Diesel Fluid” featuring Method Man, Trife, and Cappadonna.”
Honestly, I didn’t see this collabo coming but I’m pleasantly surprised. Odd Future frontman, Tyler The Creator, is no stranger to trouble … but in his latest collabo with Pusha T, he has a partner in crime. In the official music video for Pusha-T’s “Trouble On My Mind,” the G.O.O.D. Music recording artist finds his inner Tyler — and vice versa. The Jason Goldwatch-directed clip begins with the duo breaking out the ski-masks on while riding around Beverly Hills, egging unsuspecting kids walking the street … before getting into all kinds of madness around the city of Angels.
The track is off Pusha-T’s EP Fear of God 2: Let Us Pray, which is out now … and features guest spots from Kanye West, Pharrell, 50 Cent and Young Jeezy
The Love of my Life, Sade, has returned with a new song and video for me… or for us… but most likely just for me – but i’ll share. The song is entitled Love is Found and is off of her recently released album The Ultimate Collection. This video is directed by Sophie Mueller and features footage from her current Soldier of Love tour.
With just days away from the the long-awaited album, Jay-Z and Kanye offer up a mini-documentary revealing some of inner-workings during the creation process of Watch The Throne. In the documentary, Jay-Z looked back at Kanye’s development over the past decade.
“Kanye, I’ve seen him, he’s really like a brother to me,” says Hov. “I’ve seen him from the beginning to where he is now and to see him as a producer and how he’s grown as a producer and an artist, for me, on another level, it’s enjoyable. I’m watching the guy I pretty much mentored become his own guy with his own opinion, it’s fantastic.”
The documentary also shows a young Kanye West predicting his future success in 2002, telling Rap fans to get ready for his takeover. “My album, y’all gonna see, I’m gonna take it to the next level,” he warned.
If you have 10 minutes to set aside, you can check out how some of it all went down. Watch the Throne is set to release on August 1, 2011 *Cameo appearances by Russell Crowe and the the Air Yeezy 2 [4:52]
Simply Incredible!! I found this amazing collaboration between Yo-Yo Ma and a young dancer in LA, Lil Buck, on my homie Nina Clemente’s Facebook . Someone who knows Yo-Yo Ma had seen Lil Buck on YouTube and put them together to perform at an event to bring the arts back into schools back in April. The dancing is Lil Buck’s own creation and unlike anything I’ve seen.
Here’s the second cut off of the homie’s Fabolous’ “Y’all Don’t Hear Me Tho”, this time with an appearance from Red Cafe. While the first version was filmed at the iconic Brooklyn Bridge, the follow up is captured at staple boutique Vinnie Styles in downtown BK. *The Biggie Varsity Jacket he’s rocking is so major!! Does anyone know who makes it?
World renowned Emmy award winning Tap Dancer Jason Samuel Smith is a close friend and constant source of inspiration for me. As one of the vanguards of contemporary Tap Dance Jason is on a constant mission to bring the art of Tap to as many people as possible. Last Thursday Jason, along with the beautiful and extremely talented Chloe Arnold, had the opportunity to share their art with millions of people as they performed on So You Think You Can Dance with their Tap company Any Body Can Get It.
I found this gem from the homies @theweeklycast Twitter feed. Its the first single from underground Hip Hop legend, Apathy’s, latest album “Honkey Kong”, produced by Evidence of Dilated Peoples. According to Ap “This video was filmed in February, in the dead of an east coast winter, to capture the sullen vibe of the song. Filmed with mostly family and friends (and a few strange extras who had no idea they were being filmed), “Check To Check” is an honest look at really real life sh*t.”
