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.

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.

In Oprah’s latest episode she brought back her classic Michael Jackson interview that was a worldwide event. 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.
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!
The new single from her upcoming album. I love this woman.

This portion of the interview that ABC News reporter Terry Moran did with Barack on Monday was supposed to be off record but what he said about Kanye has surfaced. The audio is in this Youtube clip, the transcription is just below it and it is absolutely hilarious.
Q: Were your girls as hacked off as mine were that Kanye gave Taylor Swift the Joe Wilson treatment?
Obama: I thought that was really inappropriate. You know it was like she’s getting an award — why are you butting in? I, I hear you — I agree with you.
Q: So does that count as the first question?
Obama: The young lady seems like a perfectly nice person. She’s getting her award. What’s he doing up there? He’s a jackass. (Laughter) No, now — this — all this stuff — I’m assuming all this stuff. Where’s the pool? Come on guys. Cut the president some slack. I got a lot of other stuff on my plate. Yeah. Cause I remember last time it was the fly thing. Now that was the highlight of (trails off)
Q: No that worked out well for you. You were a ninja.
Obama: Except PETA… (laughter)
