David Banner welcomes you to, "Californication," featuring Snoop Dogg, Nipsey Hussle, Game, Ras Kass & Kree off his upcoming free independent album, "Sex, Drugs and Video Games," scheduled to be released on 5-22-2012.
"Sex, Drugs and Video Games" is a free album, but Banner is asking for fans to support "The 2M1Movement". The goal of "Sex, Drugs & Video Games" is to show the world Urban music is still valuable. And how is he going to do that? Banner needs 2 million of you to download this mixtape for free, then he needs the same 2 million of you to donate at least $1 to the movement; but feel free to donate more, as there is no maximum donation.
And what is "The Movement" you may ask? This movement is to start controlling our own music, movies and content...PERIOD! As David Banner states "We are not simply characters in a video game being controlled by the invisible hand. Once this donation goal is met, I'm going to shoot a movie that will drop 5-22-2013 and a portion of the donations are also going to charity. Big shout out to Louie C.K. for the motivation.
Melati Suryodarmo performes EXERGIE- Butter dance, an older piece but shown for the first time at Lilith.
20 blocks of butter in a square on the black dance carpet. Suryodarmo enters the space, dressed in a black tight dress and red high heels. She steps on the pieces of butter. She starts to dance to the sound of Indonesian shamanistic drums. She dances and falls, hitting the floor hard, rising, and continuously being on the verge of standing, slipping and falling in the butter. After twenty minutes Suryodarmo rises one last time, covered in butter, and leaves the space.
The best Youtube comment below:
I just can't help but wonder why the hell a woman in dancing in high red heels, a tight black dress and on butter while no one in the audience is crying with laughter

This is the latest project from The Game. Of course he puts like 300 tracks on his mixtape and makes sure he name drops Dre at least once. But the mixtape is good. The man can spit. He's one of the top hip hop rappers out. So enjoy most of these track. I can't say no more. His résumé speaks for itself.
God Speed Ft. Mele
The Drill Ft. Ace Hood & Meek Mill
Mean Muggin Ft. 2 Chainz & French Montana
Skate On Ft. Lupe Fiasco
When My Niggas Come Home Ft. Pharrell & Snoop Dogg
Although most of Ace Hood's tracks sound the same it's pretty difficult not to appreciate his grind. He keeps coming out with project after project, and album after album. When you look at what he's been through, including when twitter made a mockery of him with the hashtag (#uknowuacehood) and his daughter's death, it's hard not to be on his side. Check out the tracks.

I'm F%#k'd Up (Prod by The Renegades)
Different People Ft. The Game (Prod by The Renegades)
Although Casey is a past member of the Odd Future gang he still has the respect of his peers including Tyler himself. He wanted to do things his way and therefore separated from being part of the Odd Future gang. And it seems like it's working for now. When you listen to the first track you can understand what kind of music you'll be listening to. This is the third part of the Customized Greatly series. I'm pretty new to Casey so I haven't even listened to the first two. Hopefully third time is a chill. Check out the tracks and download if needed.

Who the hell is Lute? That's exactly what I said when I first saw this mixtape. Lute is an emcee from Charlotte, NC who has a great understanding of what hip hop. What I have below are the first three tracks of the project because you will understand that through the beats he covers and the rhymes that he spits, he's nice with it. It's conscious and gritty and hip at the same time. Give it a listen. He's 22 years young. Check out the tracks and of course check out the mixtape. Also included is a video for another song that appears on the mixtape.

My personal opinion? I think Charlie Clips won. He had bars, he was funny, he had the crowd going nuts at different times. He even went off the head for some bars. It was entertaining. X Factor came through with the punchlines and wordplay but he needed more. And I just didn't take him serious for this battle. That could be because he didn't take Charlie Clips seriously.
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to share a name with a superstar? Here, we follow an ordinary man who has been saddled with a legendary name. It's not crazy, it's sports. Pretty funny commercial.

Couple of reasons for posting this. The first one is because I like when college basketball players play pickup. When I was in college my freshman year I got the chance to play with some players on the team so that was cool. Secondly, there's a kid involved in this pick up game who balls out. Check him out.
SOMETHING FROM NOTHING: THE ART OF RAP is a feature length performance documentary film about the runaway juggernaut that is Rap music. At the wheel of this unstoppable beast is the film's director and interviewer Ice-T. Ice-T takes us on a deeply personal journey to uncover how this music of the street has grown to dominate the world. Along the way Ice-T meets some of the remarkable superstars of Rap, from Eminem to Dr Dre, to Snoop Dogg and Kanye West. He exposes the roots and history of Rap and then, through meeting most of it's most famous protagonists studies the living mechanism of the music to reveal The Art Of Rap. This film features unique performances from it's entire cast and does not use any archive material.
It's that bass, that lowend! Didn't know about the regular song until the remix came out and now here's the video. Check it out. Starring Cubana Last as one of the lovely ladies.
I've never heard of Chief Kiff until today. He's from Chicago and is on house arrest. This joint is a fucking banger. My man Quinn put me on to it today. He talks about things he doesn't like. I suggest listening to this at a high volume.
