Again, I will remind everyone reading this how much I do love Nikki Jean, her music, her demeanor, her appearance, and most of all, her spirit. She always seems upbeat and optimistic, the world needs more people like her. Also as I have said before I am ecstatic that her album is finally coming out. It is great to hear that after all she’s been through that her debut album is finally releasing and today she released the official album art and tracklist via her official website. Here’s the art and hit the link for the tracklist and her newest song.
I personally think this is an excellent choice for cover art because of her style of music. Her music has a real jazzy feel to it and is very relaxing to listen to so this simple art is very appropriate. And not to mention she is gorgeous as usual ^_^.
One of my favorite artist on G.O.O.D. music.. Talks real shit no doubt..
Cee-Lo did a video for his fourth single off of ‘The Lady Killer’, I Want You’I love the vibe of this song and think he did a pretty good job on the video. Enjoy,
My man Big Sean is finally releasing his debut album. This long awaited cd has been looked forward to by many fans, including myself, for years now, kinda surreal that its actually coming out to be honest. The release date has gotten pushed back again and the new date is June 28th. I personally can’t wait to hear it, I can only hope that its not the new commercial Big Sean but the more introspective and frankly effort-ready Sean that I grew to love (||). Who knows though, here is the album art up top and down below a video on which he talks about who might be on the album as well as some people who did production.
*crosses fingers for Old Sean and not Mainstream Sean*
If I’ve never made it known, I love chopped and screwed music.
Screwed & Chopped Dom? I’ll bite.
Dom Kennedy – The Original Dom Kennedy [Chopped & Screwed by OG Ron C and DJ Candlestick]
Originally, I wasn’t gonna post this but I figured I’d share this with y’all. This is John Legend covering Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Song is so smooth and as y’all know, I love acapella music. Wish I could stream it but I can’t. Download link down bottom but you can hear it at 2DopeBoyz. I been listening to it for a few days now and I’m thoroughly satisfied.

And this is true of kanye West’s new video for Power. Here it is.
This might be the one of the best videos I’ve ever seen. Definitely the most interesting and creative.
These are details to the video by the director I believe.
So what exactly is the piece?
Well, it’s a video portrait of Kanye. It starts with a very tight shot introducing him that’s kind of a reinvention of a neoclassical painting. It pulls back from the shot, without any cuts, and we reveal the video canvas, populated by all these characters who are depicted in various stages of undress and decadence. The iconography comes from Roman iconography, Renaissance iconography, and it connects to the sexuality of the music as well. As we reveal the setting for it, there’s a feeling of a moment of transition for him. A fall from grace, if you will. It visualizes power, and him as the icon as power, and then at the end of the piece it challenges the power that I set up at the beginning. It’s an elliptical piece of storytelling.
How did you guys end up using that kind of imagery?
He approached me via my gallery and he wanted to do something that wasn’t a music video. He wanted a video work that would accompany the music. I said, “That’s great, because I don’t do music videos.” I wanted to give it an epic feeling. The song feels very personal, but the orchestration and the production of the track is epic and I wanted to give it something hypersensational and exaggerated.
And I understand you’ve heard that Dark Twisted Fantasy is the name of the album?
I’ve heard that’s the latest name. I would say not locked-in, and it would probably not get locked until closer to the time of the album release.
