Video: Pharrell performs 'Happy' on Jimmy Kimmel

Can’t nothing..
Bring me down…

Sn: Despicable Me 2 (this is the first single from the soundtrack) hits theaters July 3rd!


Pod Post Thursdays: Fool | JMSN


I’m a fool for you…
There’s nothing I can do…

New music from JMSN and this one cuts deep.  Beautiful music nevertheless.  If you’ve been wondering, how I’ve been, about when Unit 6 (his joint project with Ab-Soul)  is dropping,..

Unit 6 is done!  It’s just that I’m not signed to a label and Ab-Soul is, so there are some technical difficulties there.  Hopefully, we can get it worked out because I don’t want to have to leak anything or anything like that.  It would just devalue what we did”- JMSN
That’s good to know it’s done.  I hope it works out soon so we can get more great music.  In the mean time.. listen to this below:

For you…

Frank’s California Live: You’re Not Dead…2013’ tour kicked off in Munich yesterday.  While he performed tracks from his hit debut album, Channel Orange, he also debuted a few new songs.  I’ve been waiting for Frank’s new material.  Here’s a preview of what we can expect:

Take a trip with the narcoleptic…

RocNation beauty, Bridget Kelly, releases a visual for her current single Street Dreamin featuring Kendrick Lamar.    I’ve heard a few tracks from Ms. Kelly and the gal definitely has talent.  I hope this gives her the exposure she deserves.  Check out the vid below:

Sky| Marsha Ambrosius

One last goodbye…

While filming this on her iPhone during a flight from L.A. to Philly, Ms. Ambrosius felt compelled to place the visual with a song she penned to rappers Jimme WallStreet and Lil Snupe who both passed away on the same day last week, as well as her Aunt and idol Michael Jackson (whose four-year death anniversary is today).  Sigh… While this is a beautiful song.. it’s tough to digest at the moment. 

I can listen to this a remember.  I can listen to this and want to forget.  I can listen to this and mend a broken heart or feel it break..” – Marsha Ambrosius.

Sn:  I haven’t spoken on the Lil Snupe situation because it bothers me….A LOT…. For various reasons.  Hopefully.. I’ll gather myself enough not to avoid it and to actually make a post.

RocNation Sports signs Kevin Durant of the OKC Thunder...

After just receiving his agent license last week, Mr. Carter shows NO signs of slowing down as he recruits yet another member to his current RocNation Sports Roster (below)….OKC Thunder Forward, Kevin Durant.

NFL NY Jets QB- Geno Smith
WNBA Tulsa Shock Guard – Skylar Diggins
NFL NY Giants WR- Victor Cruz
MLB NY Yankees- Robinson Cano

Could be a major move for his career. 
 Congrats to him.

2 C’s on my frames…
I eat pasta w/ my team…

What a random pleasure from Mr. Khalifa today.  I like this one.. and the g’d out, but simple, vid is a plus.

TLC Replaces Left Eye verse on "Waterfalls" for 20th Anniversary...

The remaining members of hit group, TLC, have several eyebrows raised after they re-released a 20th anniversary version of their hit song “Waterfalls” that does not include the original verse from late member, Left Eye.  Instead, this updated version features Japanese pop star Namie Amuro.  Sources suspect it is because TLC kicked their tour off in Japan this month and they are making an attempt to draw more folks in (which leads further speculation as to why the track was not released in the states). 

However, Lisa’s sister, Reigndrop, told TMZ “… I did not know about it until a fan posted it online…”  “…I mean it would have been nice if they would have given us a heads up before being surprised”.  It is, also, said by Reign' that her mother was “hurt” by their decision.  Sigh.

  I hope T-Boz and Chilli release a statement soon to clear the air.  In the meantime, listen to the “new” version:

RIP Lisa...

Motivation Mondays...

If that ain’t the truth…
Pay attention to the signs..
Have a great week loves.  Xoxo.

Video: Mac Miller- Live From London (w/ The Internet)

3  years ago to now…
Is just not the same…
Quality vid of Mac’s set on his ‘The Space Migration’ in London has surfaced.  I am so excited to be going to the show here in DC in a few weeks.  He straight killed this.  For more info and dates of the tour, click here.  Watching Movies with the Sound Off  is in stores now.  Vibe. 

Nas responds to J.Cole with "Made Nas Proud"

So point blank, young Cole…
You won’t be the same…

Here’s a response, or remix if you will, from Nas to Cole’s track ‘Let Nas Down’ on Born Sinner (in stores now).  This has to be a crazy humbling moment for Cole.  To have someone who you look up to greatly, tell you that you actually didn’t let them down but you made them proud.  I’m sure the feeling can’t be explained.  Listen Below:

Master P explains why No Limit never collaborated with Cash Money...

… we really from the streets

You can’t do anything but respect this man.  While his record company may have faded (like other major labels over the years), he was smart with investments and other ventures which explains why he and his family is STILL well taken care of.  He, also, while congratulating Cash Money on their success, provided his answer as trill as possible.  No sugar coat.  RARE in the industry nowadays.  I’m not sure where the rest of the interview is, and will update if I find it, but you can view this portion for the time being.
