Last night I was jamming out in the crib and I realized that I really really fuck with Usher's song "Climax" and looked to see if there were any covers on Youtube. I like doing this because you never know what talent you may fine. And here is JRA. I have no words but just press play. Then check out another one below of Drake's "Doing It Wrong."
The best description for this video and song comes from a comment I saw on youtube: the lyrics kinda highlight the childish nature of revenge...however the way they sing it shows maturity and growth and complexity. the arrangement of lyrics and delivery perfectly sum up that even grown folks still hurt and can resort to juvenile tactics when scorned. the lyrics are perfect.
Usher is back with the video for his latest single that is definitely one of my favorites right now on the iPod. Check out the video because by the song title you may think it's about something sexual but it's more than that.

Yesterday Complex had an article showcasing 10 rappers to look out for from Philly and there were a few gems on there including this dude Santos, 20 year old rapper, who goes in for about 15 minutes. Yeah it's long but it's great. Sounds hungry and he could spit. Check it out.

For some odd reason I totally forgot that Big K.R.I.T was releasing a mixtape for the streets. I'm glad he did because it's another quality tape that has no featured artists on it. He is basically putting a stamp on his place in Hip Hop. Check out some of the tracks below and then of course, download if you like.
"My Girlfriend" on iTunes: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/my-girlfriend-feat.-grip-plyaz/id507460893
off SMKA's The 808 Experiment: Vol 3: http://smka.bandcamp.com/album/the-808-experiment-vol-3
If I smoked I would call "her" my girlfriend too.
On March 12, 2012 7PM CST, 8PM EST it's showtime for sync as JAY Z takes the stage live from SxSW. Tune-in to watch one of music's greatest in a concert event like no other. Amex Sync Show is an interactive concert experience presented by American Express. He's doing great work.

Aleon Craft released this great mixtape around Valentine's Day but I finally got around to jamming and listening to it today. What he have here is some funky Hip Hop and funky soul but smooth as a baby's bottom. Hailing from Atlanta he's here putting in some good work. Check out the tracks and I'm sure you'll appreciate what you hear.
Stratosphere Ft. Dreamer
Moon Walk Her Ft. C Sharp
Jack Vale is known for his pranks on unsuspecting folks. What we have here is a internet installer and a furniture deliverer. When Jack begins to make a point he just stops talking and pretends that nothing was said. Pretty great.

So this sketch group makes hilarious prank videos. They are located in Ohio and do most of their filming there. Check out some of these. The one above is the fake rubber snake moving across the sidewalk.
These guys are definitely brave for doing this prank. What actually happened? He puts a hole in his water bottle to test out the stream right in front of cops and they think he's taking a piss. I would try this but I live in NYC and I'm a black male.
