Blurred Lines. | TOO HOT. | Just Very Hot. Ooh!

Man. Three of the yummiest dudes in the business. I LOVE this track and the video OMG super sexy right?! So sexy that it was banned. Robin Thicke’s new music video is too hot for YouTube. A representative for the R&B crooner said that his unrated video for “Blurred Lines” was banned from the website. The clip features nude models prowling around Thicke and rappers T.I. and Pharrell. A representative for YouTube didn’t immediately respond to an email seeking comment. The video is still playing on the music video website Vevo. Thicke’s unrated clip was released last week and garnered more than 1 million views in days. It became a water cooler topic on the blogs and entertainment websites. The original video was released a week before and has 1.3 million views. Thicke said in an interview that he had sought the approval of his wife, actress Paula Patton, to shoot with nude models.   picasion.com_9e29a1cd73e03aeda0b6a3b7fb99d152 Robin-Thicke-TI-Pharrell-Blurred-Lines-NSFW

“Lord knows, Lord knows!” – Drake.

Drake – Lord Knows Lyrics.

[Intro: Rick Ross]
All we wanted was opportunity
(Just Blaze!) Lord knows!

[Verse 1: Drake]
It’s your worst nightmare, it’s my first night here
And this girl right here, who knows what she knows?
So I’m going through her phone if she go to the bathroom
And her purse right there, I don’t trust these hoes at all
But that’s just the result of me paying attention
To all these women that think like men with the same intentions
Talking strippers and models that try to gain attention
Even a couple pornstars that I’m ashamed to mention
But Weezy and Stunna my only role models
Haffa and Jordan my only role models
That’s why I walk around with all this gold on
And every time I run into these niggas they want no problems
Bottom sixes and chains, and some bracelets and rings
All of the little accents that make me a king
I never hear the disses they try and point out to me
But it’s whatever if somebody wan’ make it a thing
I’m more concerned with niggas thinkin’ about Christmas in August
Do anything to buy gifts for they daughters
Get some shake, a brick in the press
And chef it like Mrs. Fields; they’re making the cookie stretch
I know it so well, I know the hustle so well
Stunt like I’m working overnighters right by the motel
Drug money outfit, record clean
Spend it all on me and my fuckin’ team
Matchin’ Rollies for real, matchin’ Rovers for real
Places they say they’ve been, we’ve actually going for real
I’m really killin’ shit, fuck all the jiggy rapping
I’m going trigga happy just to see my niggas happy
Mixtape legend, underground kings
Lookin’ for the right way to do the wrong things
With my new bitch that’s living in Palm Springs
Young ass nigga, lifelong dreams
They take the greats from the past and compare us
I wonder if they’d ever survive in this era
In a time where it’s recreation
To pull all your skeletons out the closet like Halloween decorations
I know of all the things that I hear they be poking fun at
Never the flow though, they know I run that
Fuck you all, I claim that whenever
I change rap forever, the game back together, yeah
YM, I remain that forever
In the same place my brother Wayne at forever
I’m a descendent of either Marley or Hendrix
I haven’t figured it out cause my story is far from finished
I’m hearing all of the jokes, I know that they tryna push me
I know that showin’ emotion don’t ever mean I’m a pussy
Know that I don’t make music for niggas who don’t get pussy
So those are the ones I count on to diss me or overlook me
Lord knows, Lord knows, I’m heavy, I got my weight up
Roberson boost your rate up, it’s time that somebody paid up
A lot of niggas came up off of a style that I made up
But if all I hear is me, then who should I be afraid of?
Bought a white Ghost, now shit is gettin’ spooky
Very, very scary, like shit you see in the movies
In this bitch all drinks on the house like Snoopy
That’s why all the real soldiers salute me
Trill nigga, for real

[Interlude: Rick Ross]
You know I love this
YOLO, you only live once
I’m going so hard my nigga, I swear homie
Everyday is another opportunity to reach that goal

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
I fell in love with the pen, started fucking the ink
The hustle’s an art, I painted what I would think
Still allergic to broke, prescription straight to the paper
Destined for greatness, but got a place in Jamaica
Villa on the water with the wonderful views
Only fat nigga in the sauna with Jews
Went and got a yacht, I’m talkin’ Carnival cruise
And these niggas talking like hoes, they mad they not in my shoes
It’s the red bottom boss, came to buy the bar
Every bi-week, shit, I’m bound to buy a car
Murder-cedes Benz or that bubble double R
Headlights flicking, looking like a falling star
Everyday them hammers bang, whipping yay like Anna Mae
I run the game but the ladies think I’m running game
Mink coats make your woman wanna fornicate
Rozay and Drake, I’m getting cake, nothing short of great.


One of Drakes realest tracks.





Lupe. | Real N*gga.


Lupe Fiasco – Bitch Bad Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Now imagine there’s a shorty, maybe five maybe four
Ridin’ ’round with his mama listening to the radio
And a song comes on and a not far off from being born
Doesn’t know the difference between right and wrong
Now I ain’t trying to make it too complex
But let’s just say shorty has an undeveloped context
About the perception of women these days
His mama sings along and this what she says
“Niggas, I’m a bad bitch, and I’m bad bitch
Something that’s far above average”
And maybe other rhyming words like cabbage and savage
And baby carriage and other things that match it
Couple of things are happenin’ here
First he’s relatin’ the word “bitch” with his mama – comma
And because she’s relatin’ to herself, his most important source of help
And mental health, he may skew respect for dishonor

[Verse 2]
Yeah, now imagine a group of little girls nine through twelve
On the internet watchin’ videos listenin’ to songs by themselves
It doesn’t really matter if they have parental clearance
They understand the internet better than their parents
Now being the internet, the content’s probably uncensored
They’re young, so they’re malleable and probably unmentored
A complicated combination, maybe with no relevance
Until that intelligence meets their favorite singer’s preference
“Bad bitches, bad bitches, bad bitches
That’s all I want and all I like in life is bad bitches, bad bitches”
Now let’s say that they less concerned with him
And more with the video girl acquiescent to his whims
Ah, the plot thickens
High heels, long hair, fat booty, slim
Reality check, I’m not trippin’
They don’t see a paid actress, just what makes a bad bitch

[Verse 3]
Disclaimer: this rhymer, Lupe, is not usin’ “bitch” as a lesson
But as a psychological weapon
To set in your mind and really mess with your conceptions
Discretions, reflections, it’s clever misdirection
Cause, while I was rappin’ they was growin’ up fast
Nobody stepped in to ever slow ’em up, gasp
Sure enough, in this little world
The little boy meets one of those little girls
And he thinks she a bad bitch and she thinks she a bad bitch
He thinks disrespectfully, she thinks of that sexually
She got the wrong idea, he don’t wanna fuck her
He think she’s bad at bein’ a bitch, like his mother
Momma never dressed like that, come out the house hot mess like that
Ass, titties, dressed like that, all out to impress like that
Just like that, you see the fruit of the confusion
He caught in a reality, she caught in an illusion
Bad mean good to her, she really nice and smart
But bad mean bad to him, bitch don’t play a part
But bitch still bad to her if you say it the wrong way
But she think she a bitch, what a double entendre.


That’s deep son! L.O.V.E this track.

EA Teams Up With Hip-Hop Icons Big Boi and B.O.B.


Electronic Arts has announced that hip-hop megastars Big Boi and B.o.B. are bringing their talents to the highly anticipated co-op action game, ‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’.

The two stars are not only teaming up in the studio for the collaboration of the game’s official theme song “Double or Nothing” set for release in early 2013, but are also joining forces in the game. The duo will play the roles of T.W.O. operatives Charles “Chuy” Rendall (Big Boi) and Anthony “Baker” Barnes (B.o.B.), helping players blast their way through Mexico’s most dangerous cartel.

EA also announced that fans who pre-order ‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ from Amazon in the UK* will receive an exclusive Hit-Makers Kit. This kit will give players access to a one-of-a-kind TWO Contract mission that will allow them to play as Big Boi and B.o.B.’s character, as well as custom masks and weapon skins designed by the artists themselves.

“One of our primary goals with the ‘Devil’s Cartel’ is to bring the feeling of watching an action blockbuster movie to the game and adding that great, theme song really helps set the right vibe, almost like you’re in the theater,” said Julian Beak, Executive Producer at Visceral Studios Montreal. “And aside from a great song, Big Boi and B.o.B. also delivered outstanding performances that are really going to add to the story.”

“I love action games, and getting a chance to star in one is definitely something I’m excited about,” said singer-songwriter and avid gamer B.o.B. “‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ has everything I’m looking for in a great game – intensity and huge explosions and destruction.”

“Partnering with B.o.B. on the ‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ theme song and inside the game has been a blast and I can’t wait to load it up, hear the song and see myself in the game,” said Big Boi.

Big Boi (Antwan Andre Patton) made history with OutKast from their debut, ‘Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik’ (1994, recorded when Big Boi was still a teenager) to their 2003 swan song, ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’. One of the biggest-selling hip-hop albums in history – 11-times platinum in the U.S., over 15 million worldwide – Speakerboxxx/The Love Below generated three Grammy Awards (including Best Rap Album and Album Of the Year) and spun off two life-changing #1 hit singles, Andre 3000’s “Hey Ya!” and Big Boi’s “The Way You Move” (with Sleepy Brown). His new album “Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors” is out on 11 December 2012.

B.o.B aka Bobby Ray is an American  hip hop recording artist, singer-songwriter and record producer. After his debut single “Nothin’ on You” reached number one in both the United States and the United Kingdom, B.o.B rose to fame B.o.B was named the ninth Hottest MC in the Game of 2010 by MTV. On 27 April 2010 his debut album,  ‘B.o.B Presents: The Adventures of Bobby Ray’ was released, reaching number one on the  US charts and eventually being certified Gold by the  RIAA..

Developed by Visceral Games, ‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ re-sets the series that pioneered the co-op experience with an action blockbuster storyline. Players find themselves in the drug-torn streets of Mexico as Alpha and Bravo, two operatives working for Tactical Worldwide Operations (T.W.O.), fighting for justice and against a dangerous drug cartel. Featuring both online and split-screen co-op, ‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ gives players the chance to distinguish themselves from their friends by providing a deeper and more advanced upgrade and customization system. From the mask that protects them in battle to the very weapons that keep them alive, players can customize their own Alpha and Bravo to create the deadliest mercenary team as they see fit.

‘Army of TWO The Devil’s Cartel’ will be available on 28 March 2013 for the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system and the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system. This product has not yet been rated by ESRB or PEGI. – Source: EA




Number One Macklemore and Ryan Lewis Groupie. | L.O.V.E.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ music is distinct for channeling cultural moments and refreshingly self-aware testimony through candid lyricism and expertly crafted composition. Their work has impressed and enthused a multitude of listeners, nowhere more evident than in the populist barometer of the internet, where some of Macklemore’s songs, videos and even fan-uploaded media have over one million listens and views.

The recent single “Wings” is an anthemic meditation on being of the Air Jordan generation with a lucid perspective on an otherwise trodden motif. “Otherside” offers a darkly searing portrait of his own story of addiction and the hype of substance within hip-hop culture. Crowd-favorite songs like “And We Danced” and “Irish Celebration” demonstrate Macklemore’s ability to get raucous with disarming candor and relentlessly energetic showmanship.

On their first national headlining tour in the spring of 2011, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis packed houses and sold out a majority of their shows, including those in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and a three-night run at Seattle’s Showbox at the Market, where over 3,500 tickets sold out in less than 48 hours.

Macklemore’s freshman release in 2005, Language of My World, featured production by Rhymesayer’s Budo and was well-received by circles who noted Macklemore’s fresh perspective and a striking balance of insight and levity. After several subsequent years of artistic stagnation and frustration due to substance abuse, Macklemore made a commitment to sobriety with a newfound, more intrinsic dedication to his music.

The catalyst to this change was establishing a partnership and ongoing collaboration with Ryan Lewis, an accomplished, consummate artist in design, photography, and production, who also acts as Macklemore’s touring DJ. They released the VS EP in 2009 & VS Redux in 2010, the latter reaching #7 on the iTunes Hip Hop charts. “…and quote.”
