Harmony Festival 2010 from Harmony Festival on Vimeo.

One of the best festival of the year that promotes music, art, spirituality, healthy living, and ecology going down June 11-13, 2010 in Santa Rosa, CA. Featuring a very special performance by the one and only Ms. Lauren Hill!!!!

Kid Cudi ft. Chip Tha Ripper "All Talk"

Download "All Talk" Kid Cudi ft. Chip Tha Ripper

The intro featuring a sample from Christian Bale's all too well known verbal ass whoopin' from a year ago starts off this new Cudi track. With Man on The Moon 2 roughly not due out until the fall of this year,  Cudi writes on his website "We just recorded it and put it out just for the fuck of it." A promise of more "fun joints" to come keeps fans satisfied and glad that The Cleveland Kid is in the studio, no doubtably roasting trees, and staying creative.

Kanye West is back with POWER!!!

Kanye West – Power (feat. Dwele)

Kanye West - Power ft. Dwele by thatdudeFRESH

For those begging the question “Where’s ‘Ye?” He’s baaaaaaack! With the newly leaked single “Power” feat. Dwele, King Kanye West has returned. And those that thought (or hoped) his “Ego” would take a step back can have a royal seat, as Kanye shares, he “embodies every characteristic of the ego-tistic.”
From the moment “Power” opens with a group chant, it’s clear Mr. West is going to break his silence in the aftermath of the 2009 VMA's and break it hard. Sampling King Crimson’s “21st Century Schizoid Man,” “Power” is both projective and reflective as Yeezy implies “No one man should have all that power,” but stop trippin’ folks… he’s trippin’ off the power.

Drake Light Up feat JayZ by thatdudeFRESH
Here goes another big collab from Thank Me Later as Drake links up with Jay-Z for the greatly anticipated "Light Up".

Eminem "Recovery" Tracklist

Eminem's highly anticipated album "Recovery" is finely about to drop on June 22nd. This album has features from Pink, Lil' Wayne and Rihanna, but no Dre or 50? Expectations are high after the release of the "Beamer, Benz or Bentley" freestyle that dropped in late April, where Em sounded like he was back to his old Slim Shady ways of destroying the mic. Hopefully "Recovery" will fill the gap that "Relapse" left earlier this year.

1. Cold Wind Blows
2. Talkin’ 2 Myself Feat. Kobe
3. On Fire
4. Won’t Back Down Feat. Pink
5. W.T.P.

The much-anticipated new album from Eminem, Recovery (Aftermath/Interscope), will be released June 22, 2010 (Europe: June 18), it was announced today by Interscope Records. On Recovery, his seventh major label studio album, Eminem has reached out to an exciting list of first-time collaborators, including DJ Khalil, Just Blaze, Jim Jonsin and Boi-1da, Dr. Dre and Havoc.

New Music From Ne-Yo – “Beautiful Monster”

It’s good to see he’s back on the grind & ready to release another project. This is the first single from his upcoming Libra Scale album set to drop later this year. It sounds like a record that could be big in the club.

Travie McCoy - Superbad

Third leaked single off of his album "Lazarus" dropping June 8th. I dont know about y’all but I’d prefer Travie to put all his time into that new Gym Class album. Granted Travis is dope, but come on, Gym Class & Travie > Solo Travie.

Raekwon – Alphabet Soup


New mixtape from Raekwon and The Brinks Boys, Cocainism Vol. 2. The mixtape is set to drop on Memorial Day along with the Capone-N-Noreaga mixtape by Green Lantern, Camouflage Season.

T.I. – Yeah Ya Know (Takers)

Yeah Ya Know

T.I. shreds apart his new track “Yeah Ya Know (Takers).” Much like his buzz single “I’m Back,” the DJ Toomp and Smash Factory production features an edgier rock sound that will prevail on Tip’s forthcoming album King Uncaged (Aug. 17). Judging from its title, the song will also be included on the soundtrack to his action-packed film Takers.

He was also spotted on Rihanna’s album, Jamie Foxx’s single “Winner” and more recently alongside Game and Pharrell single from The R.E.D. Album which has now been pushed back from release another week.

This is an unreleased record from the vaults, but maybe with his recent collaborations we’ll see some new material from the pop star.

Call of Duty: Black Ops - World Premiere Uncut Trailer

Call of Duty: Black Ops 01

Entourage- Season 7 (Trailer)

HBO releases the first trailer of “Entourage” season 7 which is premiering June 27 with the episode called “Stunned”. The trailer offers no footage from inside the season but highlights the five alpha males hanging out at sunset with suits on.

In the season premiere, the director of Vince’s latest action film talks his star into doing his own driving stunt, agitating both Eric and Ari. Turtle’s attraction to an underperforming employee named Alex threatens to damage his fledgling carservice business. Ari looks to add to his resume as “the biggest agent in the world” by eying an alliance with the NFL. Worried that his holding deal is about to expire, Drama pressures Lloyd, now his agent, to land him a project.

Jessica Simpson and porn star Sasha Grey are among the celebrity guests this season. The former is playing herself while the latter is taking the role as Vince’s girlfriend. – AceShowBiz.

Turntablism is the art of manipulating sounds and creating music using phonograph turntables or digital turntables and a DJ mixer.

DJ Shiftee was added to the legendary list of DJs in the DMC DJ Hall Of Fame back in September of 2009. Even though he does gig on Traktor, he is one of the most talented turntablists out right now. Make sure you google this guy, because you have to give much respect to a guy who can rock like he does.

**VIDEO PREMIERE** Alicia Keys "Un-Thinkable (I'm Ready)"

This is one of my favorite cuts from Alicia Keys' album "The Element Of Freedom," which is in stores now.  The video portrays a love shared between two people with different life experiences, but no matter how different the two are, their love for each other is unaffected by time or race. Beautiful song with a good video. Check out Alicia's website for the behind the scenes look at "Un-Thinkable."

Ghost of Christopher Wallace - Jay Electronica ft. Diddy

Jay swooped the beat from a producer by the name of Quincy Tones while he was accepting beats thru twitter and ichat. He was immediately inspired to "invoke the energy of Big" on the track, if you didn't already get that from the title. He hit Diddy for some feedback and this raw, supposedly unfinished track is what came from it. Make sure you check Jay on his Myspace and twitter.

A Thought-Ghetto Messtape Cover Art
<a href="">A Thought-Ghetto Intro (ft. TigerBears) by Faimkills</a>
"I.E. stick together like L-M-N-O-P" a line off of Faimkills-A Thought Ghetto Messtape. Faimkills from San Bernardino, CA is geting a lot of local buzz as well as his entire BlackCloud family. This mixtape is very well balanced with dark songs such as the Dead is Living pt. 1 and pt.2 which features fellow blackcloud member Noa James whos album drops on cinco de mayo. This mixtape also includes upbeat songs such as M.O which samples the mickey mouse club theme song production of M.O. by Curtis King. And if you just like that feel good music tracks such as From the Bottom to the Top and my favorite track Dreamfantasy will soothe your soul. If you are a fan of lyrics this mixtape is for you. Hopefully we will hear a lot more Faimkills in the near future. You can catch Faimkills and Blackcloud at the Common Ground in Riverside, CA almost every sunday.

Wale - Diary ft. Marsha Ambrosius Music Video

One of my favorite tracks out right now, Wale featuring Marsha Ambrosius "Diary" coming from Wale's debut album "Attention Deficit," which is in stores now.  Wale is one of the most underrated MCs in the game and flexes his lyrical muscle, it's an album worth throwing the in collection.

Mixtape Monday: Jadakiss "The Champ Is Here 3"

Two great mixtape legends "The Evil Genius" DJ Green Lantern and "Barack Odrama" DJ Drama come together to drop Jadakiss' "The Champ Is Here" vol. 3.
