Video! How To Make It In America (Episode 1)

Here is the first episode of the upcoming HBO comedy series featuring Kid Cudi. I’ve been hearing a lot about this for a while now, and I still have no idea what to expect. Usually, I’m a fan of things that Kid Cudi is involved in, so I have high hopes. I’m also pretty picky with TV shows (but this is coming from a guy who watches COPS on an almost daily basis), so this could be a hit or miss for me.

Thanks to Kid Cudi

Video! Nneka Performing on Letterman

I’m blogging without ears again, since I’m still in the library, and I still don’t have headphones. So I’m going with my gut and posting something that I’m looking forward to watching as soon as I get home. This is Nneka performing “Heartbeat” on Letterman. It’s a great song, and I’d be very surprised if this performance wasn’t worth 4 of your measly minutes.

Curren$y – Smokee Robinson (Mixtape)



I know a lot of people have been looking forward to this. Here is the new Curren$y mixtape with features from Wiz Khalifa, Nipsey Hussle, Big Sean, Dom Kennedy, and Chip Tha Ripper. Unfortunately, I’m in a library without headphones, so I haven’t been able to listen to this yet. Thanks to 2DB for the link, properly labeled for your iTunes convenience. Enjoy, and let me know if it’s any good.

Video! Jay-Z Superbowl Opener

Here’s Jay-Z’s Superbowl opening rendition of “Run This Town”. The Who will be performing at half-time, but The Who is boring, so half-time show = the puppy bowl.

Update: Congratulations to the Saints. It was a good game and the Saints deserve the win. I can’t even imagine how crazy Mardi Gras is going to be this year.

Video! Spoon – "Written In Reverse"

Here’s the music video for Spoon’s “Written In Reverse” off Transference. Very basic concept here: get band together, play song, shoot in black and white. Shrug.

Birdman ft. Drake – "Money To Blow" (Xaphoon Jones Remix)


The producer behind Chiddy Bang shredded this “Money To Blow” beat to pieces and used it as kindle to fuel this burner. For those of you us who are over hearing this generic original on the radio every 10 minutes, this is like a big splash of delicious liquor in your juicebox. I think I may just stop listening to original Birdman songs and wait for the sick fucking remixes. Big thanks to Xaphoon for this. Check it out.

Classic! Muse – "New Born"


Just to keep things from getting predictable around here, I wanted to drop a classic. I’m going to see Muse in March so I’m brushing up on some of my favorites, and this is definitely one of them. Muse has an epic, planet consuming sound that can make volcanoes erupt and stadiums implode. This one is off of Origin Of Symmetry, the first Muse album I ever got my hands on. I had heard a couple hits of theirs but I didn’t have any real expectations. I tentatively slid the disc in my Jeep on the way home from the local record shop in VA. “New Born” is the first song on the album. When the song got to the 1:25 mark, I was officially a fan of Muse, and I have been ever since.
