Quddus and Asher Roth got a chance to check out the Hip Hop Exhibit at the Grammy Museum. While they were there Asher told Quddus why he’s calling his upcoming album Spaghetti Tree and shared an exclusive new verse from it.
Mr. West performed this at The W Hotel in Hollywood for Nike’s event to premiere The Black Mamba directed by Robert Rodriguez and starring Kobe Bryant, Danny Trejo, Bruce Willis and Kanye West.
An all access look at how Quddus directed the debut music video for the talented Erin Christine.
The debut video for Erin Christine directed by Quddus. “I wanted the video to be just as raw as the song. Bring you right into a relationship and the moments that end up defining it. As a new director, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and it turned out to be one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.” Cinematography by Michael Dispenza, color correction editor Michel Sandy, and the cast includes Silvestre Rasuk and Luba Chervinsky.
The Get Schooled National tour hit East High School in Memphis in a big way yesterday. It was hosted by Quddus who explains the tour in the clip above. Ciara gave an inspired speech and an impromptu performance of her remix to Deuces (which you can check out in clip below). Memphis’ very own K Michelle put on an incredible performance and shared some great advice about education too. For more about how you can step up go to getschooled.com.

Got a chance to catch up with Miguel backstage at the Roxy to talk about his collaboration with J Cole and their incredible new song All I Want is You.
The Q Side teamed up with the non-profit m.a.m.a. earth to put on a red carpet benefit concert in Santa Monica on March 6th that saw the comeback of an R&B legend along with some of the new stars of R&B. The event managed to raise over $3000 for the relief effort in Haiti, specifically, to help a grassroots organization called Yayasan Bumi Sehat (Healthy Mother Earth Foundation) who’s birthing clinic opened its doors this past Friday, March 5th in Jacmel, Haiti.
It was an amazing night that had performances from Mateo, Res, the legendary El Debarge, Think Tank and Bruno Mars (who’s currently featured on B.o.B.’s hit song Nothin’ On You).
Everyone was incredible but El Debarge’s performance was the highlight of the show and when he left the stage to loud cheers, people felt like they had just witnessed a monumental moment. The comeback of a legend who’s made it through controversy and returned to greatness. El is back in the studio working on new music with Babyface and he’s planning to release an album later this year.
This photo taken by Brian McGee captures the moment after I introduced El Debarge to Mateo, who’s poised to make an impact similar to the run El had with his brand of love songs. In fact, because of the rain that night, El didn’t bring his own piano and just jumped on Mateo’s instead. That is definitely what I call a moment.
B.o.B. and Bruno Mars shot their highly anticipated video for Nothin’ On You last week in Los Angeles. This is exclusive behind the scenes footage of them as they made the video and broke out into a comical live version of the song.
