Eminem's 3am Trailer

Slated to debut on Cinemax. It looks pretty crazy. I don't really mean that in a good way. It looks crazy.

gotta love Sartorialist fashion

Great eye.

Stolen from The Sartorialist

Beautifully shot J Cole Trailer for his new mixtape "The Warm Up"

Seriously beautifully shot. BB Gun of course. I'm feeling this nigga's style. Shout to J Cole and and another shout to all the niggas sleeping so mothafucking hard on the kid. I do my part whenever I get the chance to let the world know. I even put my girl on because I knew she might feel him.

**Bonus** I'm serious right now. NOBODY HAS THIS. Download Lights Please- J Cole .. it's the song Hov heard and went crazy for telling people to go bring him J Cole right away. It's pretty ill. *UPDATE* The kid himself got in touch with me and asked me to take this down.

Also check out the kid's Complex Interview right here.

some footage/some words from Hov in Arizona

Jay sent this letter to YN over at Rap Radar.

A word from Hov

Last night I performed at the University of Arizona, I had a ball!! Through all the excitement and joking around (as well as the technical difficulties) I missed out on the opportunity to say something important..

On the show as well were Third Eye Blind and Kelly Clarkson.. I thought that to be the oddest pairing EVER but, soon realized, it's what I've always professed..There is NO such thing as BLACK music or WHITE music only GOOD or BAD music..It's stupid cool to like things that are not like you, and that goes for outside of music.. If you're an African American you can have a jewish friend. Wait, does Lyor having some Israeli mixed with his jewish count? (Sure they are paranoid but, so are black people after they've smoked weed, haaaaa, and plus the JEW fro and the BLUEprint fro are the SAME thing.)

I think concerts like this should happen more often. ( Outside of the one or 2 festivals a year or "Zootopia") I'm putting that into the up Taylor Swift and Uncle Murda!!

Sorry I don't "Tweet" (do I?) so this will have to do..


It feels good to see him out and performing. I remember when I would search youtube like crazy looking for anything I can get on the nigga. That email to YN is pretty ill too. I love that the biggest rapper in the world is also the most mature. As it should be.

Fat Joe stole this beat from T.Shirt- oh Baby.

I'm gonna be huge. That's all I wanna say. Oh and I like Fat Joe but shiiit my nigga my shit is wayyyyyyy better than this bulllllshiiiiittttt hahahahaha.

Mos Def cover's Kanye's "Say You Will"

From what I consider one of the best albums of the year Period, 808's & Heartbreak, Mos does a beautiful, soul drenched rendition of the opening track Say You Will.
Download Say You Will Cover (Live) - Mos Def

sans the Jordan Jumpsuit? The Nike hat? The wrist band? He owns real clothes? Up @ 3am wondering how he's got dead bodies everywhere.. Eminem is back.

Download 3am- Eminem

I'm not cosigning this just yet but I think you should hear it.

How cute.. Ricky Ross vs. Asher Roth

Does Asher have a chance at beating Rick Ross in album sales? No I don't think so. Besides the obvious, it's also confirmed that Universal Records, who Roth is signed to, undershipped his album. They only sent about 100k to retail. Pretty tough. That would get me soo tight.

Buy Rick Ross' Deeper Than Rap here. I have it, it's fantastic.

Buy Asher Roth's Asleep in the Bread-isle here.

Kanye West X Young Jeezy X Hype Williams in Hawaii..

Amazing music video. The kind people should be making. Niggas make good money and pay peanuts for their hood videos. It's sad. Rik Cordero done fucked everything up huh? This right here though is cinematic baby..

Directed by the beast Hype Williams.

Marc by Marc Jacobs. Maaaaad Love.

"Rick Ross's third album is fantastic" -New York Times

Before I read the NY Times article on the ill rapper Rick Ross, I listened to his new album all the way through 3 times and have absolutely fallen in love with it. Across the board this album is truly ill and definitely one of the best hip-hop works of the year. I wanted to use a few words to describe it to you but the damn Times beat me to it. Whatever. This shit is lush indeed, full, fleeting and yes, Ross takes things Deeper Than Rap. Please buy it and support good music.

Kanye loves it too- look !

*Bonus Rick Ross Deeper Than Rap Special on BET. -I saw it, it's great.

Drake's logo is super ill.

Designed and produced by this kid Brian Espiritu over @ LegendsLeague. This is just so dope I can't take it. Young Angel is an alias Drake goes by hence the wings pattern. Also- Eskay @ nahright says something's going on with the whole Young Angel/Young Hov collaboration. It feels like something big is about to happen and I really couldn't be happier, I just wanna be a part of it allllll.

Eminem in the pills..

looking like T.I. in the paper..
Em always does this face I can't stand it. WhY sO sEriOUs dicko?? Lighten the fuck up for once. Relapse cover. Eh.

I'm definitely anticipating the music on this thing can't front.

Look at this son of a bitch Hova taking Hip-Hop far and beyond..

hahaha.. cmon now he looks funny right? I'm just kidding, you gotta love this shit. Jay-Z is on this month's issue of Cigar Aficionado talking about his good life and his love of cigars to celebrate it all. There's a bunch of jewels in this thing.

You can read the full story here but you really should get off your computer and support print.

T.Shirt talks a little about Drake

This is Drake^^^ not T.Shirt.

-I've been thinking about doing this post for a while now and I just haven't got around to it. It seems like I really gotta go in here, I dunno I'm just thinking too much probably. Lemme start off by saying, look, I like the kid Drake, I do. I think he raps well and sings great. I think he has a lot of appeal and very well could be the next young rapper to really go somewhere. To say that I don't see the similarity in us, as rappers, or that I don't see him as direct competition for an artist like me, is foolish. I consider our styles very similar.
Drake raps about life, and girls, and love, and lost love, and his niggas, and struggle, and celebration. I love him for that. He's got a great style. I question some of his moves like "freestyling at Flex" all while reading from a blackberry, or biting so much, my bad, sounding so much like Wayne. I think he's a bit corny too. Does anyone else see or hear that? It's so crazy how much the public has changed as far as what they cosign and who they show love to now. A few years ago, someone so un-gangsta wouldn't be tolerated up there doing this thing. Now, it's all the people wanna hear. For that especially I big up Drake and I'm happy he's getting his turn. God damn the boy is getting his turn. Doing records with Jay-Z, signed to Lil Wayne, all over radio with more than a couple hits. He's really getting a chance. From T.Shirt over here at ill rapper, Go get em' my nigga. I bump "Best I Ever Had" so much homie, I'm so mothafucking with it. Just know this. hahahaha... you know what's coming.. JUST KNOW THIS BOY. I love the pressure, I love the odds. You ain't got shit on me baby. See you soon.

100 grand Kiss

My favorite Kiss records off the album. I want you to buy it- don't get me twisted but the truth is, it isn't worth the $$$. I feel terrible saying that but it is what it is. Kiss still picks bad/weird beats that probably came along with even worse hooks. Also, it doesn't play like a cohesive album but rather a mixtape of mastered album cuts. Does that make sense? Makes me tight because Jadakiss raps so ill and it's like he can't be corny at all but I wish he was more musical.

*sidenote* I can't listen to one second of that Swiss record oh my God.

You was doing it back then and that's why your where your at right now and I commend you for it.
