Got Ya Covered: Kanye’s Beautiful Dark Twisted Album Cover

18 10 2010

Yesterday, controversial MC Kanye West released his proposed album cover for his upcoming fifth LP. His album My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy has been heavily talked about; from the moving portrait of “Power”, the lengthly and unique album title, the red suited performances, and now the album cover. The album cover features a painting by George Condo (who also provided both the “Power” and “Runaway” single artwork), depicting Kanye West holding a brewsky getting rode by a topless “phoenix” with no arms and a polka-dotted tail.

Guess Who’s Bizack!

18 10 2010

It’s been a while since I blogged since I’ve been extremely busy corporate grindin’ and keeping the bills paid. I tried my best to keep dropping fresh content on a daily basis but eventually it got too hard to manage my blog, work schedule, and my personal life. I’m going to try my best to keep you all informed on what’s hot in Hip Hop and upcoming talent. I do apologize for the hiatus, but I’m back now.

Stay tuned!

Album Review: Clipse – Til The Casket Drops

8 12 2009

In 2002, the Clipse released their breakout hit “Grindin'” instantly gaining everyone’s attention as the duo ripped the Neptunes classic instrumental. Following up their debut hit, they released the club anthem “When’s the Last Time” showing their persistence with singles. Their Neptune-produced album Lord Willin’ featured both tracks, and many more bangers about lying females, their differences from other rappers, and more raps about crack than all of Jeezy’s albums combined. Their following album Hell Hath No Fury was fully produced by the Neptunes as well, but didn’t have the mainstream success as their debut, yet and still was well received by critics. Three years later, they strike back with their current album Til The Casket Drops, slightly switching up their subject matter and swapping out a couple of Neptunes beats with Sean C. & LV, and upcoming producer DJ Khalil. Will the Clipse’s changes to their content and production affect their reliable strategy, or will Til The Casket Drops prove their consistency?

Dope or Nope 12/7 – The R&B Edition!

7 12 2009

I’m hitting you with two new R&B tracks for today’s new joints. First, there’s the remix to Trey Songz current smash “Invented Sex” with Keri Hilson and Usher, and next it’s Sade’s comeback single “Soldier of Love”.

Trey Songz feat. Keri Hilson & Usher – Invented Sex (Remix)

The beautiful Keri Hilson (as seen above) hops on Trey Songz’ “Invented Sex” along with Usher, replacing the Drake feature. Both artists do the song justice with their feature making it a great R&B collaboration next to Kellz “Pregnant” with Tyrese, The-Dream, and Robin Thicke.
