Since they both star in the new Tyler Perry flick (the millionth he’s had out in the past few years) MySpace got these two incredibly talented women in the same room to interview each other.

A healthy serving of amazing and a side of random.

J.A.M.E.S. Watts “Say You Will” Remix

It’s one of the most used beats of 2009 but for good reason cause it’s given a lot of MCs the soundscape to really say something. This take on it goes to an entirely different level. It’s one of the most honest raps I’ve ever heard.

TiRon’s Video Release Party

On Wednesday night we celebrated the upcoming release of TiRon’s debut video Throwing My Money at the Echo in LA and it felt like the arrival of the newest star in hip hop. Most of LA’s dopest artists came out to support including Pac Div, Blu, Dom Kennedy, Shawn Chrystopher, Diz Gibran and Brook D’Leau of J*Davey. It was a packed house that got treated to a great show and the world premiere of the video. On Tuesday it hits the net and you’ll get to see it too.

Yours truly hosting the night

He hadn’t done an interview in over a decade but after he released Dangerous- before there was scandal and accusations- he sat down with Oprah for this live broadcast and 90 MILLION people tuned in!!!

After months of planning, sold out shows in LA, great online press (including a new artist feature on Concrete Loop), touring the West Coast with J. Holiday and Day 26, and performing at shows with Erykah Badu and De La Soul, I am extremely proud to announce Mateo’s first CD – “Get To Know Me (Live at Swing House)”.

I hope you support great music and download it- it’s actually only $4.99- right HERE

It was recorded at the infamous Swing House studios in Los Angeles – featuring six of Mateo’s songs with an eight-piece backing band. I served as one of the executive producers for the project and I can honestly say that being a part of this is one of the proudest moments of my life.

So dope

This dude Ebrahim has a ridiculous amount of talent! Watch as he does an original track by himself real quick then lays some of my favorite vocals on it too!
