It’s been an interesting week for hip-hop fans over 30 from Chicago and NYC. First Common and Nas drop the video for the “Ghetto Dreams”[watch here] and then Kanye and Jay-Z follow-up with the stuntastic clip to “Otis”[watch here]. All things being equal both songs are dope with videos that excel with their simplicity.  However, […]

No you are not back in 1994. Common released the music video to “Ghetto Dreams” featuring Nas. I am so glad Common is back to creating real hip hop and not that robotic music he put out on his last album. The Dreamer, The Believer drops this fall on Warner Bros. Records. Check out the […]

Bilal‘s 2006 album, Love For Sale, may have never been released, but Bilal went back to it to film a video for “Sorrow, Tears &…

Cee Lo Green‘s “Bodies” is one of our favorite tracks from Green’s latest album, The Lady Killer.  The dramatic slow jam gets an animated video directed by Mikael Colombu and features “appearances” from Kerry Washington, Janelle Monae, Raphael Saadiq, Common, Bilal, and fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld.

Serena’s best friend Selita Ebanks was ont he Wendy Williams show recently and almost confirmed that the couple’s engagement rumors are true.
