Power Couples With a Cause

Hov, Bey, and the Obamas? So necessary!  Jay and Bey will be hosting  Barrack Obama’s last fundraising event in NYC September 18, before the election, November 6.  This event capped at 100 guests, $40,000 per ticket, will be hosted at the 40/40 Club; regular.

Recently Mr. President crashed  Jay’s performance in Philly at the  Made In America Festival  (after the jump) and that was pretty dope. I love seeing my two favorites on opposite,but the same side of life’s spectrum interact in the way that these two do. Truly respect two of the biggest African American power couples uniting for a serious cause and making black look so beautiful.

And you really thought Obama wasn’t on the text? Kuh.

Patiently Waiting

Cruel Summer leaked last night… and I haven’t heard it yet.  I usually feel iffy about listening to albums that I have anticipated for so long before their release date buuuutttt I’m anxious.  Features like  Ma$e and KelzTarius!!!!!?? I have to listen to it tonight. I don’t even want to hear the snippets for the rest of the tracks. “Clique” dropped and I’m not too hyped about the record. I think Pusha T should have been on it, but overall it was…. aiiight.  I’m pretty sure I’m going to love the album as a whole though. I mean… it IS a Kanye production.

If you really cant wait to hear this G.O.O.D. compilation and are anti-leak,  hit  iTunes for snippets of each song. (Though I”m pretty sure most of the world has bumped it hard in the past 17 hours)  Below is the tracklist. Until 9/18, be G.O.O.D. 

01. Kanye West and R. Kelly: “To the World”
02. Kanye West, Jay-Z, and Big Sean: “Clique”
03. Kanye West, Big Sean, Pusha-T, and 2 Chainz: “Mercy”
04. Kanye West, Pusha-T, and Ghostface Killah: “New God Flow”
05. Raekwon, Pusha-T, Common, 2 Chainz, Cyhi the Prynce, Kid Cudi, and D’Banj: “The Morning”
06. DJ Khaled: “Cold”
07. The-Dream, Pusha-T, and Ma$e: “Higher”
08. John Legend, Travi$ Scott, Teyana Taylor, Cyhi the Prynce, and Malik Yusef: “Sin City”
09. Kanye West, Big Sean, 2 Chainz, and Marsha Ambrosius: “The One”
10. Kid Cudi: “Creepers”

[Bars of the Day] I’m Me x Lil’ Weezyana

…And I stay on my flow Cash Money like a rug
Tied to the fuckin’ Birdman like a Lug/
And dear Mr. Ronald Williams,
To you I shall forever give thanks like a pilgrim/
Cash Money million, heir to the throne Going at their heads like hair in a comb/
Sittin’ by the window, I just stare at the stone
Knowin’ I might get through it like hair in a comb/

This song will always get me hype, then sad, then angry. (Just like Sky Is The Limit)

hyped because: … these lyrics. the delivery. the dedication. the word play. ugh! Just Wayne man. Had to call him LilWeezyana on this one to pay homage.

sad because: … am I ever going to hear Dwayne Carter pre-No Ceilings ever again?!

angry because : … probation got my lil’ whoadee talkin’ blah blah and racking up skateboarding injuries. Pass my man a couple Ls and a cup of Dirty Jones; cut his dreads back to mid-shoulder length, and let the martian cook.

Until then, I’ll listen to old Wayne and appreciate it.

[Bars of the Day] Frank Ocean x Lost

Got on my buttercream silk shirt and it’s Versace
Hand me my triple weight
So I can weight the work I got on your girl (Too weird to live, too weird to die)
No I don’t really wish
I don’t wish the titties would show
No, have I ever
Have I ever let you get caught?

I. LOVE. THIS. SONG. First off, it reminds me of one of my favorite movies ever, Maria Full of Grace. If you never seen it, It’s about a Colombian girl who becomes a drug mule to come to NYC and shit gets very real (Captioned movie :all in Spanish:) Anywho, Frank really paints a drug mule and their pusher’s relationship in his perfected metaphoric way. So all the Chrissys  in every city and Tiffany Lanes, Frank is singing for you.
