With the job market in the shape it’s in, dreams of a bright and successful future can sometimes get placed on the backburner for present-day solutions. Degrees don’t seem to hold the same value they used to and chasing dreams often seems like the most logical thing for a person to do at times. That’s what J. Cole is doing. That’s probably what he’s always going to do.
His debut album Â is scheduled hit shelves late October and promises to be one entrenched in struggle, progress, dreams and reality. The track “Blow Up” features all that and one in which Cole reflects on his rise to his present day status and what the future holds for his career. It’s a must listen because of the content of the song. Plenty of people should find common ground to some of the lyrics especially if you’re working a job or in school with bigger dreams than the four walls you’re currently sitting in can confine.Read More
With all the love being shown to his latest video “Power” plus the hype surrounding yesterday’s release of new track “See Me Now,” it seems the Kanye West comeback is definitely in full force. But what are the chances that Yeezy will be allowed to return to MTV’s VMA stage?
Pretty good, actually. USA Today reports that Mr. West will indeed be performing live during the awards show, which is being held at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles.Read More

Regardless of what everyone else is talking about (including myself at times), I’m still a Jeezy fan. Do I agree with every move being made? No, but what does my opinion really matter at the end of the day? Jeezy’s moving forward and recently shot the video for his Lil’ Jon assisted “Jizzle.” I won’t compare it to “Who Dat.” I will say it is a totally different sounding song in the car, which is a good thing. Now whether it’s an appropriate single to create a strong anticipation for TM103, that remains to be seen.
Remember, Young’s new mixtape 1000 Grams drops tomorrow at 1:03 p.m.

Someone once said “controversy sells” and whoever that person was knew exactly what they were talking about. From the moment Jeezy let go of his outing over Rick Ross’ mega-hit “B.M.F.,” the talk everywhere focused on its intended target. Many believed it was at Ross himself especially with The Snowman spewing out the bars “How you Blowin’ Money Fast?/ You don’t know the crew/ Oh, you part of the fam?/ Sh–, I never knew.” The man behind the lyrics caught up with Shaheem Reid of MTV earlier today to dead those accusations.
I wasn’t really up on Chris Classic until recently. To be quite honest, I had never heard of the name. Then I came across a video with a dope concept and some nice bars and the seeds of interest were planted. Before I get to that, however, let me first say C-squared has been around for years penning songs even garnering a co-sign from the late Jam Master Jay (who also gave 50 Cent his start). Working the likes of Nas, Kid Rock, Jermaine Dupri, Third Eye Blind and Jagged Edge gave him credibility in the industry while working on his debut project (which was ultimately put on hold).
He’s recorded songs to movies such as Just Wright, Wall Street 2, Transformers, Coach Carter, Sex And The City and several other movies including an American Music Award for his work the Alivin & The Chipmunks soundtrack. Recently, he let go of his The Summer Classic 2 mixtape which I’m looking forward to giving a listen. Instead of me trying to find the words to describe the tape, this should work much better.

Peter’s son and Young Money’s newest member, Cory Gunz, speaks about life in the Bronx and how it influenced his love affair with music. If you’re in NY for the World Basketball Festival, you may want to check that out. It’s directed by BB Gun, so that should speak to the (high) level of quality.
As part of the lead up to the World Basketball Festival, Nike Sportswear is connecting the Five Boroughs of New York City in a celebration of hoops, culture, and its iconic Air Force 1 sneaker. Nike Sportswear has chosen five ambassadors from each of the five boroughs to participate in 1LOVE, a program that includes a online documentary series, a basketball tournament, and a Manhattan block party takeover.
Episode 3 features Cory Gunz, Bronx based rapper and Young Money Entertainment budding superstar, giving us a tour of NYC’s northernmost borough, and according to Cory “The Birthplace of Hip Hop.”
