{Personal Post} :: 28 x Photos.

Yesterday was my birthday.
I've grown into an overly private person.  Guarded if you will.
Thus has been a gift... and at the same time a curse.
With that being said... I won't go into much detail BUT
last night I was shown genuine love.  I thank ya'll.
It brought clarity to some situations and defined others.
I appreciate genuineness. 
It's been a bumpy road in life.
But all in all, I use everything as a learning tool.
Thankful to see another year.
Full of emotions of all that is to come.
Thank you family.
Thank you friends.
Thank you Lord.

-Tiff ♥

She's Backkk. Watch Missy Elliott's New Video "WTF (Where They From)" featuring Pharrell

I am so different than ya'll.
So far apart.

KILLING it like she never left.  In less that 12 hours of premiering the video, it already has nearly 1.5 million views.  Talk about a knockout.  Missy is iconic in more ways than one, but the energy and creativity she brings to videos?  consistently?  NO ONE is seeing her.  A class all by herself.  Add the visual for this addictive jam to the collection::

Untouchable | Pusha T (Produced by. Timbaland)

Can't you see my total
Pam, Kima, Keisha.

This month has started off great for Push.  Not only was he recently named the President of G.O.O.D. Music (congrats.. much deserved), he's back on the music scene with welcoming arms from fans and hip-hop.  His latest, 'Untouchable', is nothing but pure bars.. in true Push fashion.  He's always been a problem.  Let him continue to cook.  Listen below::

Mixtape :: MMM | Puff Daddy

He could've certainly made this an album.  However, I'm not complaining at all about the free download.  Featuring Styles P, Pusha T, Lil Kim, Wiz Khalifa, Travis Scott, Jadakiss, Big Sean and more... this was nicely done.  Press Play::

UPDATE from 07/12/2015 Post :: Trailer Added.

Despite kickback from quite a few Chicago artists' for the film, "Chi-Raq" was still produced... and making it's theatrical release on December 4th.  With a heavy hitting star cast, I promise this full trailer is the exact opposite of what you were expecting.  
 Take a glimpse.  Watch after the jump::

This New Bottle of Patron will set you back a Few Grand...

"The Patrón en Lalique: Serie 1, a limited-edition crystal 700 ml decanter containing a smooth, refined and rare extra añjeo tequila that is aged for at least four years in American and French oak barrels.”

"This is Lalique!" - Brandy Webb from 'A Thin Line Between Love and Hate'.
Remember that part?  That's exactly what I thought of when I heard Patron teamed up with the luxury crystal maker.  
The Lalique produced bottle of extra anejo will be worth.... brace yourselves... $7600.  You can find this in select stores across the world.. but scarcely.  The bottle is limited to only 500 units.  Ball out if you got it... for a bottle of liquor.  Let me know how it tastes... 

s.o. to Hypebeast

Video :: Ridin' Round | Kali Uchis

You can't tell me shit
Don't come and share your dialect.

Kali took the position in her own hands like a bawse and directed her own new video "Ridin' Round", which falls on Por Vida.  However, you won't find this version.  This is the DJ Dahi revamp.  Take a glimpse into Kali's home country, Columbia, all the while taking notes of how a real female hustler gets down.  By any means.  Check it out ::

Bonita Applebum (Pharrell Remix) | A Tribe Called Quest

For the 25h anniversary of ATCQ 'Peoples Instinctive Travels & The Paths of Rhythm', Pharrell remixes the classic single with a taste of his own... production wise.  

Mixtape :: Free Game | LE$

Video : Get Away | The Internet

Roll up an L and light it
Let's go to space...

The Internet's latest visual from Ego Death.  I have to save all commentary before it ends up like Shadow Dance.  However, I will say the video brings vibesssss in different matters.  Check it out::

#RaisetheMacallan Malt Scotch Whisky Event | Washington D.C.

Rare that I venture out on a work night.  Usually when I do, it's worth it.  This was no exception.  I RSVP'd a month in advance to savor the Macallan... and the Macallan experience.
They had a beautiful set up.  Check out the entrance to the interactive room.

Mixtape :: 6 Rings 3 | OJ Da Juiceman

Video :: Stick Talk | Future

You can't understand us
because you're too soft...

With all that's going on... Seriously... 'Stick Talk' was the only thing that could make me come out of my hiatus.  I bout shed a thug tear when he performed 'Serve the Base' and this back to back at Made in America this year.   Joint is too like that.  It's one of those songs I get lost in.  If you KNOW me... you know why ;-).  Here's the visual.  Watch below::

F*ck It | Tyler, the Creator

So when them nxggas start talkin reckless
I get offended, I get it
They try to keep a image...

Now it's Anti Golf boys cause I don't fxck with my friends.
Tyler proves over and over that the musical talents are endless.  The float over 'Fuck It', his own production, adds to that.  While he has never been one to shy from sharing how he feels, this one is a little different.  A loosie he released today that he 'recorded two weeks ago' is HARD.. and addresses the critics, his 'old friends', amongst other things.  I only wish it was longer.  Press play ::

Show Studio presents an intimate visual of Kali Uchis "Loner"... the Acoustic Version

And maybe you got a full plate
know I'm cooking something better
But if you don't want me now
No, boy I don't want you later
Don't try to come and eat with me...

I can never get enough of this song.  Nick Knight had a photo shoot for the fall issue of V magazine and made Uchis the forefront.  While doing so, he was able to capture her beauty and talent to the oh so real 'Loner'.. not only in an artistic Andy Warhol way, but .. as an acoustic version.  Watch below::

This video so wild dog. lol.
Pink. Raunchy. Random.  Not only can you find the MTV approved video below, BUT I've added the Director's Cut... which has a horrifying ending.  You can find this track on his 'Who's Gonna Get Fu**** First?' project.  Bizarre and Dope at the same time.  Watch the video below as well as the Director's #uncensored cut after the jump::

I feel like shit
Know I ain't shit

With his current mixtape 'Black Dollar' in heavy rotation, Rick Ross drops more music.  This one hails from his newly announced upcoming album, 'Black Market'.  The song title and lyric preview above is pretty self explanatory.  Chris Brown describes this as one of his most honest tracks ever and thanked the bawse for the opportunity.  It gets real.. real quick.  Listen below::

s.o. to Yetmeh for texting me EARLY this morning to make sure I was good.  She never forgets.. and for that I am thankful. 

{Personal Post} PHOTOS:: Jack'n 4 Beats - Jack Daniels x Ty Dolla $ign Launch Party | Washington D.C.

#JacknForBeats Launch Party hosted by Ty Dolla $ign.  The event was free.. and the Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey was complimentary.  You CAN'T beat that.  There was a mobile studio outside the event for folks to bring their hottest bars to showcase and for a chance to win $5000.  Inside was the main event....

In my Afropunk 2015 post, I followed up with a Part 2 of the weekend.  Here's the 3rd/final installment.  This portion continues in the Brooklyn Museum- showcasing the Sneaker Culture and FAILE: Savage/Sacred Young Minds and arcade exhibit.  I really enjoyed myself.  Take a glimpse...

Can I (Official Version) | Drake x Beyonce

Can I...

I'm sure all remember earlier this year when a snippet of this song surfaced on the internet.  Many were anticipating Drake would release the song hours later etc. but to no avail.  Yesterday, on OVO Sound Radio/Apple Music Beats 1, OVO Co-founder El-Khatib played the official version of the track.  I gravitated to the snippet... and hearing the entire cut is no different.  It's addictive.  Short.. but listen to 'Can I' below::

Video :: Geechi Liberace | Rick Ross (featuring Lira Galore) + "Buried in the Streets"

These days nothing make sense...

Rozay drops a video from one of the hottest mixtapes released this year.  "Geechi Liberace" features a regal home scene along with his fiance' Lira Mercer aka Lira Galore.  Download 'Black Dollar' now.  Watch below::

Listen :: Kid Cudi releases "Judgemental Cunt" x "Wedding Tux"

His double album is coming soon- Speedin Bullet To Heaven.  With the mixing issues bringing a delay of release, among other risen issues, Cudster decided to release two new records.  Alternative rock style.  Rage out to these.  

Chilling :: Watch Tyler, the Creator's new video "Buffalo/Find Your Wings"

The video still above alone is compelling enough to produce a chill.  Tyler drops a new dual visual from his 'Cherry Bomb' album.  The video begins with 'Buffalo' in a new mixed sound were Tyler is in white face.. being hung by an angry mob of black people.  Later, he wipes his face off to reveal a black face which causes a different reaction.  No matter your interpretation of it all, it's sure to hold your attention the entire duration.. with a racing mind of trying to figure it out.
When the video switches into 'Find your Wings' .. it switches into a completely different feel (like that of the song) and channels a episode of 'Soul Train', if you will.  His creative genes keep expanding.  Watch below :: 
Sidebar- if you're watching on your phone... watch the Buffalo part again with invert colors.  It's just as insane.

I ain't really happy

Day 1.  
I made the mistake of not charging my phone before heading to Philly.  My car charger croaked on the way.  By the time I walked in MIA, I was on about 38%.  I snapped what I could on this day, but didn't get as much as I liked.
