Power of Kanye West
August 13, 2010

Hip Hop hasn’t been the same since Kanye went WEST. Most can agree whether you love or hate him, Ye’ always provides an interesting topic to be read, spoken, or watched.  In his latest video from his wondrous hit-single, “Power” Kanye has marked his return which can only be summed up in one word…innovative! This creative 90 second work-of-art was directed by Marco Brambilla and delivers a snippet from the majestical world of Mr. West…angels and demons, halos and swords, light and darkness…oh the hotness!!! He gave us a taste and reminded us that although he was in hiatus, Kanye still has the POWER to captivate legions. I’m ready and eagerly anticipating the experience from Kanye West’s forthcoming album.

Love The Way You Lie – Eminem
August 13, 2010

Eminem’s resurrection with albums Relapse (2009) and Recovery (2010) has proven that our mastermind hasn’t lost any of his flavor and has rekindled that same spark that he once held within the hip hop community. His second video installment from Recovery, “Love The Way You Lie” has proven that Em still holds dominance as a clever storyteller and continues to enthrall us with his potent messages in his music. Opening with our most famous chameleon…Ms. Rihanna scorches the screen with the new scarlet coiffure with matching nails and the-oh-so-fly make-up that enhances her hazel/greens…she’s edgy and we love it! Took me a few scenes to recognize Dominic Monaghan our friendly little hobbit or better known from Lost but no doubt he delivered the wickedness of a philandering lover. Megan Fox transformed the sexy…I’m gonna kill you but kiss me first…rawness of an addictive relationship.  This one is a heavy rotator!!!

Fall In Love – Estelle
August 9, 2010

It’s been a minute since I’ve heard music that’s light, fun, and gets you in a smooth groove. Estelle’s new hit, “Fall In Love ft. John Legend” had me jamming. First off I have to address Estelle’s wicked shoe-game…she always leaves me impressed with her provocative choices of heels and the haircut/color was also complimenting! Video correlates with the song… a beautiful sunny summer day, Estelle going for a stroll while grabbing the attention of that hottie in the window…Dude looks familiar… oh yeah Grey’s Anatomy! John’s legendary crooning added extra height to this collabo which surprisingly is the second; there is another version featuring Nas. My end result, I really enjoyed this one and look forward to hearing the full album.
