On Thursday October 30, 2014 the 2014 Power 105.1 Powerhouse took place at Brooklyn’s Barclay Center, the home of the Brooklyn Nets. iHipHop.com was on-hand to document the event, which featured performances by Jeezy (with special guest Jay Z), J. Cole, French Montana, Migos, Childish Gambino, and more. Click through this slideshow to see photos of the nights events. All photos by Lauren Gesswein.
For the official “About the Money” remix T.I. recruits some heavyweights. Lil Wayne and Jeezy join Tip and Young Thug to complete this Southern hip-hop coalition. Now all that’s missing from this is Juicy J doing some adlibs. Peep the “About the Money” remix after the jump.
The Game is currently prepping Blood Money: Year of the Wolf, the follow-up to his 2012 album Jesus Piece. And he has just unleashed the latest single “Black on Black” featuring Jeezy and Kevin Gates. That’s the album’s art above. Listen to the track after the jump.
Young Thug to the rescue! It’s safe to say if you’re in desperate need for a dope hook or unique verse to set your song over the top then Thugger is your go-to guy. And on DJ Drama’s “Right Back” that very notion rings true, as Thugger Thugger handles hook duties, chorus duties, and has the most memorable verse amongst Young Jeezy and Rich Homie Quan. The Young Thug stimulus package is too strong. Listen after the jump for proof.
First he blessed us with the ill Kendrick Lamar feature on the remix and now Jeezy brings us the official music video for “Holy Ghost”. The Don Cannon produced track is brought to life in a very stylized, cinematic way with Jeezy riding in the back of his Rolls-Royce Ghost gazing at the city streets of Los Angeles. Check out the video after the jump.
As any grown man knows, these h*s can be addictive. Leave it to Jeezy to put that all in perspective for you. This jumpy and flexible song is more scenic than its really crude topic. Man, these h*s. Check the track after the jump.
Last year, K. Dot and Pusha T coordinated “Nosetalgia” to trade the gift of crossover into each other’s audiences. Where that smooth but unusual blend surprised us, this one is glued together with a standard Jeezy hook and Kendrick doing his toot-toot-beep-beep rap like R. Kelly on “Ignition.” The stories that might bind their styles are missing but the streets will buzz off this track’s name recognition alone. Check it after the jump.
“On Me” is a Jeezy song with Wiz sort of hosting it for his album. This is a new trend in album construction: where an artist leases a style for his work, so to draw the guest artist’s crowd and effects. Collab after the jump.
Blacc Hollywood Wiz stops in at New York’s hip hop hub. He explains the musical approach (channeling Prince and MJ) as well as the weirdo element that’s evolved his albums. Also, why Tyga’s not on his tour. Video after the jump.
The Snowman stops in with hip-hop’s favorite auntie interviewer. He talks mostly about his new record, and how Jay-Z doesn’t cry but could cry if he wanted to because he’s that rich. But truthfully, this is a good insight into Jeezy’s origins in the poorest part of Atlanta and how he uses that experience to guide him as a music entrepreneur. Watch after the jump.
Trap All-Stars delight. Jeezy bringing it to the abandoned houses and alleyways, as he swings a gold chain in the face of poverty. Hustle your way up! Have a chance to revisit the hood when you need to shoot an authentic video. The track is no-frills CTE template and it knocks. “Me Ok” visuals after the jump.
