R. Kelly's first song after his throat surgery and he's telling all those that doubted him to shut up. He then emphasizes that he's the reason why many babies were born in the 90s. I don't blame him.
I haven't jammed some Asher Roth in a while. There have been songs but I haven't been a fan of them. Check this one out because he sounds like the old Asher that we all loved at one point.
Although Paul Wall has slimmed down he claims that he still balling with Slim Thug. I respect the song. Different flow for Paul Wall since he used to be on that slow, chill rhyming scheme.
Meek Mill's "Imma Boss got the remix treatment and now a bunch of heavy hitters got on the song to make it even hotter. I wonder what this would like at a show. Pretty epic in my opinion.

"For gifts you can't wait to give" There is something even more wonderful than receiving the perfect gift, and that is knowing you have found the perfect gift for someone you love. This year we have brought to life the feeling of excitement and anticipation you get when you have found that perfect gift for someone and cannot wait for Christmas day to arrive.
Our advert follows one little boy who is impatiently counting down to Christmas. We see him tapping his fingers, gazing out of the window, even trying to cast a spell on a clock to make time go faster, but to no avail. The track 'Please, Please, Please let me get what I want', was originally recorded by the Smiths, and has been rerecorded by emerging artist Slow Moving Millie.
Professional stuntman, gymnastics coach and free runner Damien Walters returns with his annual video: Damien Walters 2011 Showreel. Here Damien showcases his latest stunts, flips and tricks in true creative fashion.
If I could do 1 percent of the stuff that he just did then I would be content with that part of my life.

Young Chris is still spitting that hot fire. I finally got the chance to listen to the mixtape and it's a good collection of his body of work. He still spits lyrical flames and definitely has Philly on his back. Check it out and check out the three tracks as well.
Lay Low Ft. Meek Mill & Freeway
Flatline Ft. Lloyd Banks
You should expect nothing but great lyricism on this. Nothing else to say. Got a lot of fine bitches saying hi to me because I said hi to Rihanna.
Hard White Remix
Frankie asked if I could put Smooth Criminal on while he did the dishes. Wasn't long before I heard rustling coming from the kitchen. I love this because it seems like Michael Jackon will remain timeless and be able to reach out to all ages. Yesterday I was grooving to MJ and was amazed with the number of hits and good songs he had. Great work.
4 in the morning so I'm done with trying to front, let's skip this conversation baby girl I'm tryna fuck. You can find this on Phil Ade's A Different World.
I was recently invited to perform at the University of Connecticut on November 4th as the principal performer for a "Political Awareness Rally". About a week before the event I got an email from the organizer (who ironically I met at Occupy Wall St) saying people were concerned about my performance, particularly the song "Occupy (We the 99)." I thought this was very strange because this is supposed to be an institution of higher learning that welcomes all types of ideas, plus the event was a rally for political awareness. The organizer said he would not censor me but if I performed it I might not get paid. Then I received an email directly from the comptroller of the University saying specifically I could not perform "Occupy (We the 99)."
I initially agreed to perform only a set of songs the University of Connecticut deemed "not political" because the event had already been advertised around campus and didn't want to disappoint my fans by not showing up. I also did not want to let down the organizers who did a lot of hard work in putting the event together. But when I arrived at the University of Connecticut for the event I had a change of heart.
As I looked around the crowd I began to think of all the people around the world occupying for a better tomorrow, being arrested and brutalized by police, sleeping in the cold and rain, sacrificing comfort for freedom. I knew at that moment I had to perform the song, "Occupy (We the 99)" as well as other "political" songs like "Real Gangstas" (about the Wall St bankers), even if it meant I would not get paid. At some point in this movement all of us are going to have to make sacrifices if we truly want to see real change. The 1% control the 99% with promises of money, access, and comfort; we have to put our own souls above all three.

When a CIA-operated safe house is targeted by a group of bad guys, the facility's house-sitter is tasked with the dangerous job of moving the criminal who is being hidden there to another secure location. Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds. Looks good.
This is so great. Take a popular song, make a video using MS Paint and you have greatness. If only I thought of that sooner. Best part is when Busta Rhymes' stick figure starts rapping very quickly.
Have you been wondering where Nipsey's been because I damn sure forgot about dude for a little while. The last time we heard from Nipsey he just finished The Marathon mixtape. Now he's back with TMC aka The Marathon Continues. The West Coast rapper let's us know why he shouldn't be slept on. I wonder what his situation is. Maybe an album in 2012. Only he knows. Here are three tracks and then the link to download.

I know I know! I shouldn't even be posting this but I took a listen and it was not that bad. What else are you going to expect from these two other than bird calls, one hunnit, gang references, and all the other bullshit. Well don't expect much but just know that these three songs I'm about to share are dope. Kendrick was rapping on there with his rapping ass, and they somehow got a Drake line to be a hook. I can't blame them for trying this mixtape.

Trey Songz is at it again with this rapping stuff. That's what I said when I first downloaded it and saw that he made another one of these rapping mixtapes. I told myself I was going to listen to a few tracks and end up deleting it. I was wrong. For some reason he does the whole rapping thing pretty well. Unfortunately the tracks I got were in mp4 form so I cannot share any of them but trust me when I write that you should download it. My favorite track is "Don't Love Me." Enjoy it. But I do advise this dude to stick to singing.
