SomethingFromNothing2

If you have any inclination to hip hop then you will love this movie, its about the art of hip hop & rap over the past 40 years with an inside view from Ice T. Going from the East Coast to the West Coast, you get a taste of all the talent and what they did to get where they are, and what they believe in and what is there process for their art form. Honestly it was amazing watching some of them freestyle like that, watching Q-Tip, Run DMC, Eminem, Dr Dre, Red Man, and so many other talented people in this documentary doing their thing is inspiring and a must watch for anyone who loves music.

Fresh Prince aka Will Smith Sings @ Gabrielle Union’s Birthday

There is no question that I am a huge fan of Will Smith, and I was too young to go to any of his concerts but this video says it all. He is just as good as he was when he was young, I loved it when he started singing the old school songs. Gabrielle Union is one lucky woman to have him freestyling at her birthday, it looks like it was a ton of fun. I still listen to Will Smith’s old school hits.

Playlist 11/12

Putting a playlist together is sometimes a tedious task because of my stupid machine with iTunes on it. Luckily Spotify has relieved me of most of the headache that I face with iTunes but sometimes I still have to go back and put together a playlist for traveling or to update. This time around I did the research on another machine and just bought them on the iTunes machine. The songs to enjoy this weekend, if you have any other tracks I missed let me know.

Karmin Music – Amazing Musicians

This is an amazing music duo, that girl is seriously amazing, her singing capabilities are off the charts. She is sounds like a combination of Gwen Steffani and Nicki Minaj and her facial experssions are pirceless. They execute each one of these songs perfectly, I wonder why they haven’t been signed yet and have their own album. Check out their youtube channel.
