Seeing is Believing 2/18: Welcome Back!

Young Jeezy - Welcome Back

Okay, so The Recession made me a Jeezy fan. Even before he had some solid joints, but I never really fucked with him like that (pause). Here's his latest video for "Welcome Back" which is concert footage and clips. It was the ideal way to kick off an album and one of my favorite tracks off his latest.

Kanye West feat. KiD CuDi - Welcome to Heartbreak
Do not attempt to fix your monitor! Leave it to Ye to try something fresh and new for his videos letting his artist direction persist. Kanye drops his latest video out of nowhere with the help of newcomer KiD CuDi. According to Wikipedia, the next single was "See You In My Nightmares", but "Welcome To Heartbreak" proved it wrong. This is one of my favorite joints off 808's & Heartbreak, and I thought it would be the ideal intro for the album. Anyways, check the video out. Its insane!

T.I. feat. Justin Timberlake - Dead and Gone
Clifford drops the seventh single off of Paper Trail, making it the fifth video from the platinum album! The JT assisted joint is an ode to people he's lost in the past, and the rebirth of T.I.. T.I. also has a current MTV show "Road to Redemption" which showcases Tip's last days before he does his year bid next month. Make sure you check the video out!

Royce Da 5'9 - A Part of Me
Royce Da 5'9 brings viewers into the Twilight 5'9 Zone for his latest video where he uses a storytelling track to show his perspective on club hook-ups. Royce's upcoming album Street Hop is in stores April 21st. Big ups to my boy Matt for shooting this to me via email.

Mims - Move (If You Wanna)
This isn't that bad of a track. I'm not sure if it'll catch on or not, but the beat is pretty sick.

Girls, Girls, Girls: Chick of the Week 2/16 - Caviar

Over the past couple of years, VH1 reinvented themselves to appeal to much younger audience and broadcast a series of celebrity based reality shows. Careers were reborn (Flava Flav), and made (New York) as a result of these shows, and VH1's newest addition to the Celebreality series' is Ray J. For the Love of Ray J has some bad ones, but the one that stands out the most to me is the lovely Caviar from Ukraine. Hit up the full story to continue reading and peep more pics!

It was hard finding pics of her, but the limited ones I found still do her justice. Her English skills may not be the best, but Caviar is fine as hell. Besides, deep accents can be sexy in a way. Aside from Caviar, Danger (the tat face) is sexy in an interesting way.

Guess Who's Bizack!

I've been workin' hard instead of hardly working at my job so I've been absent from the blog scene. Luckily my project has came to an end so I'm here ready to knock these bloggers off their back.
While I was gone the Chris Brown and Rihanna fight received the most press and controversy so far this year, and the 50 and Rick Ross beef escalated and it still continues today (yawn at both of those). Unfortunately I was too busy to post on those, but they've been the topic on every blog/music site.
I'm back now so stay tuned for the latest and greatest in hip hop and other ill things.

- Peace

Born Dayz: Welcome Claymore Collins II and Happy Bday J. Dilla

It's been a while since I've posted something. I've been crazy busy with this project at work and outside of the office. But I'm posting a special blog for my Nephew.
Today my Sis had her first child, Claymore Radford Collins Jr. aka Deuce (I call em Seven since he was 7 lbs, he's my 7th nephew/niece, he was born on the 7th, etc.). Congrats to her and the fam, and I wish nothing but the best for them. This lil dude is too cool tho, I went to take a picture of him and he holds up his four fingers.

Also, Happy Birthday to the late, great J. Dilla! If you don't know, J. Dilla is responsible for producing some of hip hops most soulful instrumentals, and contributed his talents to many projects from Slum Village LP's, Common's Like Water For Chocolate, and even Janet Jackson's Velvet Rope. Unfortunately, J Dilla passed three years ago from cardiac arrest.
