Video : Shine Like Gold | Gipp x Cee-Lo Green

You are everything I ever wanted...

This song makes me smile. Gipp drops the visual for his latest single with Cee-Lo. Talk about long hair don't care. Goofing off but keeping up with the story line resulted in this final product. I'm sure they had fun on set. Watch below::

{Personal Post} Photos/Videos :: Trillectro 2014 | Washington D.C.

Trillectro 2014! After last year, I was looking forward to this one. I must say, it was bigger and BETTER for quite a few reasons. Though, it rained most of the day.. by the time I hit the grounds.. it was a mere sprinkle here and there. Nothing major. Trillgoers were able to still enjoy the festivities. Another successful dolo mission on my part. Take a look at the photos I was able to capture...

I stopped by my homegirl's vending station when I got there to show love.  I, also, wore my TRIBE shirt for support (and promotion lol).  She had a joint station with the HouseOfMiMi.

...But what you 'famous' doing?
I’m sure the general population tryn’ be more active
But when the light finally catches you.. you ice challenge???
And I support the ALS, just like the rest of them
But you have yet to pay your debt, see you just flexin it
See everybody care for a minute…
Then stop…

Thank you Wale. I am glad that someone said it.
I've been extremely quiet on this (Ferguson/Mike Brown) situation (as with similar) via social media and personal conversations for a reason that most of today's generation couldn't grasp. However, I think it's awesome that a track of this magnitude could be created for a cause. The Game enlists a variety of all-star artists for his Mike Brown tribute. Hip hop needed this.

Video : No Type | Rae Sremmurd

***UPDATE- Video added 9/30/14

They performed this at Trillectro (post coming REAL soon) this year and rocked heavy. I had been trying to figure out the name of the song since so I could throw it on the pod, but for the life of me couldn’t even remember the words #BlameItOnTheHeinekens. Randomly this morning.. I remembered a part from the chorus… googled.. and found out the damn song wasn’t even out yet. Until now.. ;-)
The artwork features a mixture of body parts from celebrity women that Rae Sremmurd take interest in- Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, Miley Cyrus, and Keyshia Cole. Can you identify which parts? Take a listen to their follow up to smash No Flex Zone, ‘No Type’ after the jump::
