Rick Ross & Ryan Leslie in the studio

Footage of them making a song called Maybachs & Diamonds that didn’t make the final cut of Deeper Than Rap due to scheduling conflicts but look for it to be on Ross’ next album or Ryan’s next one.

Dr. Dre cooked up a beat I could use in a movie score for this! Bishop and X do their thing too.

Drake “Best I Ever Had”

July 2, 2009  |  Behind the Scenes, Hip Hop  |  2 Comments

This is what Kanye directed. See just below it for what I would’ve done.

I don’t know who shot this beautiful promo of Bar Refaeli but I would’ve done something similar with Meagan Good instead then inserted performance shots (imagine them wide angle and sweeping) of Drake on top of the second highest building in downtown Toronto with the CN Tower in the background. It would’ve been simple but great. What would you have done with it?

KRS One & Buckshot!

If you didn’t grow up in the golden age of hip hop this post might not mean much to you but the first two concerts I attended was starring these two MC’s. KRS One was touring for his album “I Got Next” and Buckshot was touring with the Boot Camp Click. Classic!

Now they’ve teamed up for an album and this performance they gave last week at BB King’s in NYC is worth watching no matter what era of hip hop you came up in!
