New Music: McCartney. Grohl. Novoselic. Smear. - "Cut Me Some Slack" [Live]

Paul McCartney teamed up with surviving members of Nirvana, 
Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear (touring guitarist)
to perform a song they co-wrote together called "Cut Me Some Slack".
The song is from “Sound City – Real To Reel, the upcoming soundtrack to  
Dave Grohl‘s documentary, Sound City”.
Paul is going IN on this song and I'm TOTALLY diggin' it.
Rest in peace, Kurt. We miss you.

New Visual: @BSLADE Destroys NYC's XL Nightclub [Video Highlights]

So... apparently,  @BSLADE completely shut down XL Nightclub 
on West 42nd Street  in NYC this past Sunday (12.02.12).
Word has it, a LOT of people came by to the show, including
the incomparable Valerie Simpson.
I'm REALLY diggin' the horn section now.
This band is ridiculous, as always.
Check out a few hilights from the show 
(including a performance of his dance smash hit, "Get Over You" and a
throwback from his previous brand, "'Bout A Thang") , 
as curated from concert-goers.

Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta Sing Country [Video]

You thought I was joking?
Ironically, the song is called "I Think You Might Like It"...

@JimmyFallon, @MariahCarey, and @TheRoots: "All I Want For Christmas Is You" [Video]

Played with toy instruments AND sung with a kids' choir.
I LOVE it.
Shoutout out to Jimmy for that old-school Casio keyboard.
I had one of those back in the day thanks to my aunt. 

Katt Williams (@KattPackAllDay) Announces Stand-Up Retirement [Video]

After his recent arrest in Seattle, Katt Williams (@KattPackAllDay),
tearfully announced his stand-up retirement on local news.
I'm praying for his dude, honestly.
The Dream Factory ain't no joke.

@Tyga Pre-Fame On "Bustas", An Unaired MTV Game Show [Video]

THIS is hilarious.
Apparently "Bustas" was an unreleased MTV rap challenge game where they
took people that weren't from the hood and made them rap as
convincingly as possible, a la "Malibu's Most Wanted.
So, according to this show, Tyga isn't from Compton and had a cushy life.
No problem there, but it hoes to show how this industry really is, though.
Still, it also shows a glimpse of an artist in development.

New Visual @Macklemore & @MaryLambertSing - "Same Love" [Live on "Sway In The Morning"]

New Visual: @Colleenb123 & @JoshuaDtown Lip-Sync To @KEM_Intimacy & @Ledisi's "Be Mine For Christmas"

So Colleen Ballinger and Joshua David Evans did a lip-sync video for Kem & Ledisi's
"Be Mine For Christmas", which appears on his album, "What Christmas Means"
I LOVE the album though (and both artists), but this lip-sync video, though???
I will never hear the song the same way again, because now the unintentional 
campiness has been exposed (especially on Kem's first, hurried verse).
By the way, Colleen (one of my favorite online personalities) is also known by her
alter-ego, Miranda. She's hilarious.

New Music: @KendrickLamar featuring @LadyGaga - "B**ch, Don't Kill My Vibe" [Demo Version]

Gaga done sprung a leak...
Originally, Gaga was supposed to sing on the hook, but politics prevented that.
Here's the demo version which she leaked today.
This is dope. I dig it.

R.I.P., Natina Reed (@TheRealNatina) of Blaque

Natina Reed (left) of Blaque was killed today at age 32 in a hit and run accident.

Natina Reed of "Blaque" was killed late last night,
having been struck by a car while walking across a street in Atlanta.
While initial reports stated that Natina was killed in a hit and run
accident, that now appears to not be the case, as the driver
of the vehicle is not expected to be charged in the accident.
Blaque was known for being mentored by Lisa "Left_Eye Lopez" of TLC,
who was also their manager.
Blaque's hits included their debut single "808" (which was written and produced by R.Kelly)
and "Bring It All To Me".
Natina is survived by her 10-year-old son, Tren, whose father
is Kurupt from the rap group The Dogg Pound.
Tomorrow would have been Natina's 33rd birthday.
Rest in peace, Natina.

Makes sense.

"Contradiction" (the album, I'm assuming)  will be released May 16th, 2013.

New Music: RockSpel TransIVmer (@FranklinIVSong) - "Someone To Love"

So, I'm going through this artist's website and on loads a song
that stopped me dead in my tracks.
I like a good club track, but I'm REALLY into a dope melody and harmonies along
with equally attention-grabbing lyrics and hooks.
So, as I checked out RockSpel TransIVmer's new joint  "Someone To Love" and by
the time the chorus hit, I was floored.
So let me know what you think:

OK, so... I was NOT expecting this to be released.
Here's the deal with this one:
It's a remix of the same song from the album "Dawn O' The UNiCORN"
which was the first official @BSLADE project released in June of 2010.
This particular remix was done for a VERY specific reason.
I can't speak on it much, but it's bigger than music.
It was actually done a few months back for a secret project I'm a part of.
Again, I can't speak on it just yet... but it's for a beautiful purpose.
All I CAN say is that I am honored that this remix has dropped on
YouTube. I hope you enjoy it.

Voter Fraud Caught On Tape In Colorado! [Video]

Someone in El Paso County, Colorado, was registering to vote and was told that the
 registration area was only supporting Mitt Romney.
Once the young lady saw she was on tape, she panicked.
So, now we know that this is happening, that this is a sign of what probably happened
during the 2000 elections (and most likely the 2004 elections) when
Al Gore actually WON, but George W, Bush was actually sworn in after a BS recount,
at some point we have to wake up and realize what's going on.
Stand up and be counted.

Keep it locked HERE on the 21st with a firsthand account!

Coming Soon: @BSLADE - "The Curious Voyage Of Victor St. Velure"

    This journey documents the life of a bohemian vagabond named Victor St. Velure. After a bad break up, his fashion empire crumbled in the fall of 1969 he decides to leave everything he’s ever had to search for the deeper meaning of life. He knew not of where he was going, but he had to go. A mystic street gypsy named Damodara tells him of a place called The Valley of the Blue Moon. A place where someone like himself will find redemption and purpose. However in order to get to it’s location in northern Tibet, it will take all of the money he has left to get there . Even what was left would not be enough to survive any amount of ample time with no job. So thus The Curious Voyage of Victor St.Velure begins. In this album you will experience his mountain tops and valleys …. even perhaps find some parallels to your own life.
