Video: Wais P “G-Dep (Locked In)” ft Mike Maven

Looking at my inbox, I saw a message with “Wais P” and “NSFW” in the subject and had to take a look.  The hook on this song turns one man’s adversity into another man’s slang.  By the way, this is the safe-for-work version for all you cats on the West Coast or those of us on the East still grinding in the office.  Check out the NSFW version here.

Video: Earl Sweatshirt “WHOA” ft Tyler, The Creator

Earl’s proving the haters wrong with his grimy new single, “WHOA.”  The video is true to Odd Future’s form as it features Earl making his way through a trailer park, leading him to an abandoned pool while some random chick in a ballerina outfit dances aside him…

Chris Rock & Dave Chappelle Hold Impromptu Performance In NYC

dave-chappelle-chris-rock

File this in the “Why Wasn’t I There?” section.  Two of comedy’s biggest names shared the stage early Tuesday morning in an impromptu performance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar.  Throughout the week the two have performed separately at the Cellar, trying out new material; Rock because he’s preparing for an new standup special, and Chappelle because…well, who knows, just be thankful he’s still doing standup.  After performing solo for about 45 minutes, Dave Chappelle was joined by Chris Rock who took the stage to tell the audience, “Aw, you lucky motherf*ckers.” (more…)

“Law & Order: SVU” Airs Episode Based On The Chris Brown / Rihanna Assault

Those in the know realize that Law & Order: SVU is the most superior brand of crime drama on television today.  I mean they have Ice T playing a wise cracking cop — this Ice T — and all of the stories are ‘ripped from the headlines.’  Well, SVU made a bold move last night by airing an episode based on Chris Brown’s assault on Rihanna.

Video: Asher Roth “Turnip The Beet”

Asher Roth is one hungry MC.  Don’t believe me?  Then check out this video, directed by Rik Cordero.  Asher shows off his lyrical prowess and his appetite in this one, sampling some NYC’s finest fast foods (most notably Shake Shack).  His outfit looks eerily similar to the one in this video though.

Video: J. Cole Speaks At Harvard University

J. Cole stopped by Harvard University today to drop some knowledge on a lecture hall full of Ivy Leaguers.  In somewhat of an open forum lecture, entitled “The Next Move: A Conversation with J. Cole,” the Roc Nation artist discussed his influences, his family’s support of his rap career, and how he rocked his first show at the age of 14.  This piece definitely gives us some insight on J. Cole, but it can really compare to the brilliance of Lil B’s NYU lecture.  Hit the jump for the full video. (more…)

Lil Wayne isn’t the only rapper that’s being thrust into the spotlight for causing a commotion at an NBA game.  During a Wizards-Raptors game on Tuesday, commentator Matt Devlin said sarcastically, “Wale is inspiring” after the cameras cuaght the MMG rapper sitting court side.  Devlin then added, “I‘m sure someone on Twitter could tell me if they’ve exactly ever heard of Wale.  He’s not Drake, that’s for sure.” Moments later, Wale tweeted, “@MattDevlinRaps watch ur mouth” and was seen approaching the announcer’s table.   (more…)
