Video :: Liquor/Zero | Chris Brown

There's something in this liquor
the air is getting thicker
I can't help but to stare at you...

Chris releases a dual visual for his current singles 'Liquor' and 'Zero'.  In the 9 minute and 29 second vid, he uses a story line to intertwine the songs together... along with some crazy dance moves.  Keep a look out for his upcoming album,  Royalty. Watch the mini movie after the jump::

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.

An Ode to Eminem :: Joe Budden releases new video "SlaughterMouse"

***UPDATE from 9/19 post- Video Added.

We're less different
than we are alike...

While Joey revs up promo for his All Love Lost album, he releases a new track from it called 'SlaughterMouse'.  The track, not in comparison but in essence, is that of Kanye's 'Big Brother' cut to Jay-Z.  No dissing involved... just a release of thoughts and inner feelings.  Since Joe is a lyricist, you already know this was executed with precision.  Take a listen below ::
"Never mind skin color... I see beyond the white"

Runnin' (Lose it All) | Naughty Boy x Beyonce x Arrow Benjamin

Memories turn to dust
please don't bury us...

British producer/songwriter Naughty Boy (who has worked with heavy hitters such as Rihanna, Sam Smith etc.) releases a semi-up tempo ballad assisted by Beyonce and Arrow Benjamin.  Bey's vocals prevail powerfully all the while Arrow's tenor tone evens out the cut with welcomed male notes.  A nice mesh.  "iF I lose myself, i Lose it all......"

You don't want this life I live
You'd rather had the wife and the kid...

{Personal Post} Photos/Video :: AFROPUNK Fest 2015 | Brooklyn, NY (Part 1)

This reminded me of Wonka.

Ahh NY.  A place I've grown to love over the years.  This adventure was for Afropunk at Commodore Barry Park.  Day 1 only.  Pt. 2 of the weekend will be in a completely separate post.  After editing the photos, I'm actually starting to think I may need 3 parts.  We'll see.  As you get further in this post, there are photos and videos used from others (noted in the credits).  I couldn't get any good shots of the stage oddly AND the videos were just the same.  Charge it to the lighting.
Starting from the hotel... take a glimpse into the day..

This is the only snap where I have the full outfit.  The shoes matched the glasses.  I wish the photo was clearer.
