Literally a track dedicated to LBJ promoting his NYC movement. I wouldnt be suprised to hear this track on Sportscenter tomorrow. While Brisco advocates a Miami Heat move and Mickey Rocks (from the Cool Kids) pushes for the Bulls, the song is definitely made for Knick Fans. #July1.

So apparently this track was recorded back in 2007 and was unreleased until now. It’s origin is from T.I.’s Fuck A Mixtape. The song was produced by Lil C. How ironic is it that T.I. was in the pen and now Wayne is?

The free release is filled with guest appearances, including Birdman, Trey Songz, John Legend, Triple C’s, Style’s P. and the highly anticipated collaboration between Rick Ross and Kool G.

Plumes of crude oil continue erupting into the ocean at a rate of one Exxon Valdez accident every four days. And as BP gears up to perform their never-tried-before “top kill” method, someone has taken it upon themselves to make light of the incident. Needless to say, it’s hilarious. The fake twitter account, BPGlobalPR, was created today and already has nearly 50,000 followers. I say, #fucktheoilcompanies

This video gives off a similar vibe to Yeezy’s See You In My Nightmares video. Minus the extreme weirdness towards the end. Here, Consequence presents a cautionary tale on overindulging in alcohol in his new video for “Life Is Short” featuring Statik Selektah.

I’m a big Jesse Boykins III fan. For those of you who are not quite sure who this man is, he is known as Theophilus London’s back up singer. Ironically enough, he has a wikipedia page while Theophilus does not. Anyways, Mr. Boykins is doing his best to launch his career in order to be one of the best R&B singers in the game. Here is one of his better known singles and the music video for it. The song is called Amorous and the video is pretty dope if you ask me. The video was directed by Dr. Woo and some of it was shot in London outside Buckingham Palace. Hit the jump for other tracks the homie was featured on including some of my personal favorites.

And I thought Birdman liked black everything. Apparently he has been trumped by Mr. Nash. Not quite sure where this derives from, but it very well may be from the Love King album dropping in 4 days.

NYT Article: Marijuana Fuels a New Kitchen Culture 05/25/2010

I was forwarded this article from the New York Times Dining and Wine section last weekend.  The title is pretty self explanatory, but the article is really interesting and is focused on how weed is changing the food/restaurant game.  Restauranteurs all over the U.S. are openly smoking pot in and out of the kitchen to keep creativity up and to take some stress off their often tiresome, and long work days.  Check out this hilarious blurb for an idea:

Roy Choi, who owns the fleet of Kogi Korean taco trucks in Los Angeles, likens the culinary culture that has grown up around marijuana to the one that rose up around the Grateful Dead years ago. Then, people who attended the band’s shows got high and shared live music. Now, people get high and share delicious, inventive and accessible food.

“It’s good music, maybe a little weed and really good times and great food that makes you feel good,” he said.

What a G.  Click here for a link to the whole article

The Arcade Fire have posted tiny snippets of two new songs entitled ‘The Suburbs’ and ‘Month of May’ to their website via a strange online record player that adds in the scratchy noise and everything.  ‘The Suburbs’ sounds like it’s gonna be a summery folk track, while ‘Month of May’ is louder, and more Neon Bible-esque with some potential to be a heavy anthem.

Nike just came out with one of the cooler ad’s I’ve seen in a while in an effort to promote the 2010 World Cup. The idea behind the commercial is that the World Cup is the biggest stage imaginable and in one moment, great players can turn into heroes forever.  Enjoy.

Who knew Shakira was into good music.  I just came across this small snippet of a new track that she’s calling “Explore” but it’s a straight up cover of the XX song – Islands.  It’s definitely pretty catchy, she throws in an electro-esque beat that adds a nice layer onto the already super dank track.  Hear the snippet below:
