Masta Ace & EDO G have a video for their song “Little Young.” I like the gimmicky song about Rappers and little things even if it is a little corny.

Here is Skyzoo’s lead single Popularity off his new album The Salvation:

Here is a great video of Q-Tip and Busta Rhymes performing “Scenario” and “Where All My Eyes Can See” at the Knitting Factory

I was in Russia at a Trade show after party and I heard the original version of Pitbull’s Hotel Room Service play and it felt so American. It was a nice change from the bad taste in techno that Russians seem to have.

Normally however I’m not the biggest fan of club music.

Here is the latest in Shaun Boothe’s series of unauthorized biographies. This time Sean Diddy Combs, gets the treatment:

Gettin’ Up Into The I-phone

Monday, December 1st, 2008

As album sales decline, music artists continue to look for new sources of income. Mobile phones have become a standard source of income with singles sales transitioning into sales of ring tones.

Musical artists realize ring tone sales are not enough. The new world of mobile phone profits for mobile phones is applications. Q-Tip has entered the world of mobile application licensing by licensing Gettin’ Up off of his new album The Renaissance. Q-Tip has authorized “Gettin’ Up” to be used in the iPhone game app “Tap Tap.”

I would embed a Q-Tip video here but the thugs at Universal don’t want me to promote their artists fully.

Kanye West has finally released his video off of “Good Morning” off of last year’s release Graduation.


Kanye West – Good Morning
by kanyewestofficial

This video seems to have been made a while ago because I remember watching a grainy version copied with a camcorder earlier this year. It is good to see Kanye West putting out more videos for his album even at this late date after release.

TheMeaningOfDope.com posted this video of A Tribe Called Quest performing “Oh My God.”

Great to see A Tribe Called Quest performing at the peak. It is too bad it doesn’t seem like another A Tribe Called Quest album will ever come out.
