This may be your future vice-president

That's right. The lady above talking about dog-sledding and college basketball is none other than Alaska Governor and John McCain's teammate Sarah Palin. This video is golden. It's the biggest leaked video since Washington DC's mayor did crack with a couple of hookers.

Is anybody really surprised?

Chad Johnson is no more. In case you haven't heard, the man who they call Ocho Cinco is now know as... Chad Ocho Cinco. Yes, he legally changed his name recently. This is some Prince stuff. I mean, I'm a huge fan of the whole "athletes are entertainers" thing because, well, they are entertainers. This is why I have no problem when Wide Receivers do ridiculous touchdown dances- which are, more accurately, showmanship- or cry after press conferences. If I watch a game of football, I want to enjoy it and have something to talk about the next morning. So if Chad Johnson wants to make the ball disappear with a magic trick after he scores, more power to him. I don't care if people accuse them of being divas because we live in a society where every famous person, with the exception of Bear Grylls and Kimbo Slice, is a diva to some degree. Nobody else is willing to give interviews like this or this.

Update: Full Good Morning Video

I don't know how long this will last, but enjoy it. This is an update from the post I made a few days ago. Read that post if you want to know my opinion on Kanye music videos.

If this didn't make the album...

How good is The Quilt going to be? Maybe this song isn't as good as I've made it out to be, I'm not really sure. I guess I'm just a huge fan of Travie so I get blown away by any Gym Class Heroes stuff. Then again, maybe this song is as good as I made it out to be and the whole album was so stacked they had to leave this out. I prefer to think it's the latter. Oh, and Lil Wayne's on it, so if you're into the sizzurp-sippin' pothead, you will get high on Weezy about halfway through the track.

Common Has An Announcement to Make

New vid just dropped for Common's track Announcement (featuring the one and only Pharrell). Its like if you crossed that old cartoon Doug with graffiti and a better beat.

Only 3 more weeks until Invincible Summer drops.

This synthesizer thing is officially rediculous

I thought it was stupid when Lil Wayne used it in Lollipop. I was disappointed when Kanye used it in Put On and the Lollipop remix (and now Swagger Like Us, why 'Ye?). But now I give up. Rihanna used it on the new T.I. track, Live Your Life. When T-Pain used it, I tolerated it. I mean, that was his thing. His thing, no one else's. It wasn't even that bad when Yeezy and Weezy took it being that their value is placed on what they say as opposed to how they said it. But Rihanna? I thought her talent was her vocal abilities, but she's pretty much made herself a rapper with this new track. It shocked me so much that I almost overlooked the numa numa sample.

This post is 1-year in the making

A very low-quality version of this video was leaked like a year ago. It was displayed at a Takashi Murakami exhibit a little less than a year ago. At the time, I assumed it would be a one-time-only thing, but Kanye just dropped a high quality version. Right now, it can only be found on iTunes, but you and I both know the full version will be available to everyone by the end of the week. Good Morning marks the seventh video 'Ye has made from Graduation, and that's pretty much unheard of.

The thing about Kanye videos that I like above those of other artists' is the uniqueness. 98.46% of Hip Hop video have a cookie cutter formula: hot chicks, drinks, entourage, club or party scene, women all over the MC, and maybe, if we're lucky, a geeky, pasty, no-rhythm-having white dude trying to fit in. Oh, and the white guy also is wearing clothes way too small for him. But not Mr. West's videos. Look at the seven that have been released with Graduation: Kanye in a desert (which sucked, I admit), A Japanese anime style video with Kanye in a mental institute, a D.A.N.C.E.-inspired video, Kanye getting murdered by Rita G, a black-and-white tribute to Chicago with a sometimes transparent Chris Martin, A Jim Henson version of Yeezy competing in the 100-meter dash, and now a cartoon.

Nike refuses to make mediocre ads

LT is legit. Kimbo? I am not sold on the toughest porn company bodyguard in Miami, but he is scary looking, which is what Nike undoubtedly looked for in this ad. I would never, ever test Kimbo, but he gets way more pub than he has earned. What's his MMA record? 3-0. Why didn't the Chuck Liddell-beating Rampage Jackson ever get a NIKE ad. Then again, Rampage never did this.

Super Yancey Bros. 1

J Dilla's kid brother- Illa J- is starting to emerge in the rap scene and is MCing over some of his brother's tracks. It's pretty ill and I can't wait to see what else he releases. Get it here.

Sorry I haven't made an update in a couple of days, I've been busy moving. There are a lot of big things that have gone down in the last few days. I'm not going to pretend like nothing happened, I'm not George Bush and this isn't New Orleans. At the same time, I'm not going to dedicate a bunch of posts to stuff a few days old (which is months in blog-time). Here is everything worth noting, basically a time capsule of the last few days.

You call yourself a fan of music...

The Archive from Sean Dunne on Vimeo.

This guy was a salesman and it shows. At times, this video seems a little over dramatic. But, at its heart, there is a good point. There aren't enough true music collectors. The fact that this guy has 1,000,000 vinyls (all the zeroes were used to show just how big a number that is) is astonishing. If I had $3 million to blow, I'd swoop up and make that purchase. Somewhere, Pete Rock is checking how much money he has in the bank.

Wale and Travis Barker Making Magic

Here's DC's great hope and Mr. Famous Stars and Straps in the studio working on a track for Wale's upcoming debut album, which can't come soon enough. If you haven't heard it, Barker and The Game's Collabo- Dope Boys- is beautiful. The best part of the above video is watching Barker go hard on his drums, it's nasty.

Go Hard featuring Kanye and T-Pain

Heres a newly leaked track off of DJ-and i use that term extremely lightly-Khaled's new album, We Global Now. No comment. Notice how i didn't mention Khaled's name in the headline due to him serving absolutely no purpose in this song, along with his other rap endeavors. In essence, DJ Khaled is the Jackie Moon of the Rap World, a promoter to say the least. I almost pulled the plug after hearing obnoxious shouts via Khaled exclaiming, "I'm goin' in!" repeatedly, but had a change of heart when Yeezy followed those remarks. Quite frankly, i don't know what to think of this joint as of yet, so for the 4 people that read this blog feel free to drop some feedback on me.

Get it here

*Update: The only reason i posted this track is soley because of 'Ye, and i am in no way shape or form a patron of ANY music T-Painful and "DJ" Khaled are associated with

This Summer, Redemption is Spelled U-S-A

The men's USA basketball squad laid the hammer on Dirk and his fellow sorry-ass Deuches today, finsihing 5-0 in its pool. Talk about having something to prove; the dudes repping the stars and stripes are averaging 103 PPG and a 32-point margin of victory. After the game, Lebron was interviewed by the eccentric Craig Sager, and admitted the team is still playing with a chip on its shoulder, which is just what its nation wants to hear. F*ck Ric Bucher and all those analysts hating on the boys in red white and blue. This gold is in the bag

Bonus: Peep Lebron and Kobe acting like little kids while cheering on their boy here is my ish

If you've ever heard stories about Chinese tattoos that don't mean what they are intended to (Shawn Marion's "The Matrix" tat really means "Demon Moth Balls"), this is similar. Except it's better because we actually see the mistakes. Welcome to, where one country's terrible translations is another country's from of comedy.

If you still are aprehensive about CRS

This is that ish. It's been floating around for a couple days and features Lupe rapping over a classic Kanye West soul sample. Beautiful.
Quick question, with his immense talent, does anybody really believe Lupe will only make 3 solo albums? I mean, fake retirements have been all the rage ever since Jordan came back wearing the 45.

Oklahoma Frehman Kicked Off The Team For Rapping About Shooting People And Sticking His Penis In A Girl's Mouth

Josh Jarobe was a four-star wide recievr out of Ellenwood, Ga. A month ago, Jarobe got arrested for bring a loaded gun to school, just for show. I would like to say this is a typical move by a college program, dropping a player to make themselves look good, but they were in the right on this one. The kid's clearly an idiot for bringing a gun to school.

As for the above video, the kid made a huge mistake because A) he clearly sucks at rapping and B) this was ONE MONTH after bringing a gun to his school. At the same time, I don't know how I feel about a program dismissing a player on the basis of a YouTube video. Just because someone raps about something doesn't mean they are actually going to do it. A couple years back, University of Miami players got in hot water for recording a song about gang-banging. Do you honestly think those guys had gang-banged some chicks in Miami? Don't answer that.

As for where Jarboe can go from here, I'd suggest he go to Jacksonville State. It's where former number-one high school quarterback Ryan Perrilloux is. Imagine those guys playing 1-AA ball. Defensive backs, beware.

King Of Pop

This is why I hate it when people make fun of Michael Jackson. Yeah, the dude is frakin' weird, but he's also the top performer music has seen (at least, the best solo performer). Every time I watch his old videos, I can't help but think about what could have been. If he hadn't gone off the plastic surgery/hold your baby over the balcony wire, he'd have made like 5 more Thriller-esque albums. Oh well, I blame Joe Jackson for verbally abusing him when he was a boy. If you want to skip to the best part, go to the 3:30 mark and watch the best 23 seconds of live performance you will ever see.

Wale + Lupe + Kardinal Offishal + Greg Street= Hot Fire

Two up-and-comers and one of the best MCs in the game team up for a remix worth rocking out to. Everybody's got an MC that they love even though he;s a mainstream sell-out. For me, Kardinal is that dude. Get the track here.

That Lady Is Kind Of A Jerk

So the American women's gymnastics team kind of choked and lost to China. It was pretty much a result of this girl falling twice, and the lady conducting the interview would not let her forget it. By the way, gymnastics is some pretty crazy ish. It's the best thing in the Olympics not named Michael Phelps.

Kanye meets Crank Yankers

Kanye West "Champion Video" Official Directed by NEON from nabil elderkin on Vimeo.

People try to tell me that Graduation wasn't a great body of work. While I don't put it on the same level as The College Dropout and Late Registration, this is his sixth single off the 13-track album. What album has done that, regardless of genre, in the last few years. That's a measure of greatness. And yes, I don't care that I'm pole-jockin'.

I See You Jockin Jay-Z

First Track off Blueprint III. Have fun.

What's the best part of the Olympics, you ask?

The answer is the ads Nike puts up to demonstrate how they rule the athletic world.

They're all tiny, minute long works of art, that pull at you like flesh-eating zombies. Here's the first example:

How bout a Redeem Team mash-up with Marvin Gaye at the '83 All-Star Game...

Though I must say, the 4x100m relay the US team took last night over those annoying French, was one of those moments in life I will always remember.

RIP Isaac Hayes

I hate to keep posting on a somber note, but this is another big passing from the world of entertainment. Man was a legend in the soul genre, shaping the game for many of the soul and R&B singers of today.

Most of us will remember him for his role as Chef on South Park, with his catchy songs on how to lay women down by the fire and his chocolate salty balls.

RIP Chef. Thanks for laughs and the songs.

Remember when Jay-Z "retired" like 4 years ago?

BLUEPRINT 3 from kwest on Vimeo.

Blueprint III coming soon, and by soon I mean by the end of 2009. Some people say Jay-Z is too old and past his prime, but musicians don't lose their skills with age. It's not like they're athletes, no matter what everyone else says, Jay-Z is not Jordan on the Wizards or Favre on the Packers. Johnny Cash recorded music with Rick Rubin until he died, so I bet Jay-Z will be MCing until 2057.

This is a Chuck Anderson/ Burton collabo. I'm currently hunting for the perfect backpack- being a college student and a wanna-be hypebeast- and this one got my attention. I'm a huge fan of Chuck Anderson's work (he did the album cover for Food & Liquor), but this might be a little much. I'm not saying I wouldn't buy it, but I don't think I'd designate this as my standard backpack, only for occasions where I want to blow everyone away. No current knowledge concerning release date.

How many posts in a row have I made dedicated to videos off YouTube?

So I found that preview for the music video, then the actual video drops the same day. I can't explain how lucky that was. The video consists of a lot of arcade sequences and even more Star Trak signs. It's also kind of quiet because it's a bootleg off that ignorant show 106 & Park.

Football is coming back

Sometimes great speeches don't have to be eloquently spoken, they just have to be passionate. This video is a perfect example. The guy doesn't have a whole lot to say, but he says it with so much pride that you know it's close to his heart. People always talk about how no sport has the passion of European soccer, but I would like to argue on behalf of college football. Yeah, maybe fans aren't quite as violent, but they are definitely as drunk, especially in the SEC. College football gets started in about three weeks, which can't come soon enough, for me or this Alabama fan.

I'm on my Kanye video tilt

Is it just me, or does Kanye appear to be giving us "crazy eyes?"

They always pull out all the stops for Madison Square Garden

The Glow In The Dark Tour was in New York the other night, and you knew 'Ye would try and do it big. Rihanna wasn't in the lineup, so she was replaced by Consequence, a change I would have preferred when they came to Miami.
Here's Kanye closing out the concert with his words of wisdom. He did this at every concert, but he was more open in New York. He discusses Nas' new album, Soulja Boy- who he respects for some odd reason-, and being called a fag.

Here's him performing "Put On" sans Jeezy. He even throws in an extra verse.

Fall Of Rome

If you want some Lupe gear, head over to Japanese online shop Choice Is Yours. Personally, it's not my style. If I'm going to drop that kind of cash, it's going to be for something a little more unique. Don't worry, those prices are in yen so it isn't TOO much, but still. The crew and safari shirt are the only things I'd consider buying, assuming it was a little cheaper.

Brett Favre's Back... Well, He's In Green Bay and... He's Going to practice, right?

This is a story that will not die. Every time we think there is a potential resolution, the story revives itself with a Young And The Restless-caliber plot twist. The latest: Brett Favre is meeting with Packer's coach Mike McCarthy- who has probably lost five years off his life in the last two weeks- and ESPN is reporting that Favre might not be feeling the whole "open competition." Personally, I think the Packers should drop the facade and call training camp "Brett Favre owns us and can do whatever he wants even though our first-round pick quarterback has been waiting patiently on the bench the last three years" month.

Nike's on to something with these ads.


Tell me this isn't the funniest thing to come out of the whole Brett Favre controversy. I guess he's officially back and Hitler is going to be happy. The film is called Downfall. You might need to pause the movie occasionally to read the subtitles. Unless, of course, you are a really, really, really fast reader.

Yeah, I Need $$

Everything You Wanted To Know About A-Trak

Rehearsal Space: A-Trak from videos222 on Vimeo.

He's the dude who, until the Glow In The Dark Tour, rocked out during all of Kanye's show. DJ scratchin supposedly died a good fifteen years ago, but A-Trak is dope. Actually, all good scratchers are tight. A-Trak is a canuck but I'll that slide. His brother is the lead singer for the band Chromeo.

Oh, and my favorite part of that video is the zoom-in on the old lady at 0:47. Lol

Kanye TV?

A couple months back, Kanye wrote on his blog that he was working on a TV show. He said it wouldn't be some lame E! reality show like Keeping Up With The Kardashians or The Girls Next Door. He didn't say those exact words, but you get the basic idea. When I heard he wasn't doing a reality show, I feared for something even worse than a reality show. Is that possible, you ask? Yes, and it exists in the form of lame sitcoms with laugh tracks (Flavor Flav's Under One Roof). Fortunately, Kanye isn't doing a sitcom either, at least not in the classical sense. According to Hollywood Insider, HBO- the only channel the consistently delivers good television- is working on bringing writer Larry David (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld) and Mr. West together for a one-camera-style show. For those not familiar with the single-camera setup, it's what they use in The Office and Arrested Development. You knew Kanye wouldn't do a typical show, right?

Paris Tokyo Remix

Patience is a virtue. I'm glad this isn't going to be some typical remix with Jeezy, Weezy, R. Kelly, and Michael Jackson (actually, MJ would be dope). Q-Tip and Pharrell? Not bad. Courtesy of Nah Right.

BlindI Coming Back

If you read my post, Blinded With Anticipation, you know how I feel about Blind I For The Kids. Then you'll know I'm pretty hyped about the return of BlindI this Monday. Get ready for the freshness.

The Complex cover everyone's talking about

For their style issue, Complex hooked up with N.E.R.D. and Lupe, two artists well known for their style choices. "In my Fall of Rome jeans, my headporter wallet/My Neighborhood shirt and my Eddie Chen clock shit." Anyways, last year Kanye broke down both the alphabet and his style and I expect Pharrell is doing the same thing in this year's issue. The N.E.R.D. cover was done by graffiti master KAWS, and the Lupe side was Todd "REAS" James. My shift button didn't know what it was in for before that sentence.
Here are a couple videos that show how it all went down:

Shortstop joins list of athletes who suck at not getting injured funny

Yesterday, I talked about how Ken Griffey went down so many times in his career. Well, at least when he got hurt, he was playing his sport, unlike Padres shortstop Khalil Green. Green, who is one of the best defensive shortstops in baseball, broke his left hand punching a storage closet. The funniest part of this story was an ESPN The Magazine article written a couple years ago that talked about Green's odd sense of inner-peace. I guess he take the trippy surfer-boy out of Hawaii and he turns into a less offensive Bob Knight.
Some other athletes who have been injured in humorous ways:
Miami Dolphin David Bowens tore his ACL jumping off a ladder after changing a light bulb.
Washington Redskin Gus Frerotte got a concussion slamming his head against a concrete wall while celebrating a touchdown like he was a caveman.
Jacksonville Jaguar Chris Hanson gashed his foot when he swung an ax. The ax was in the locker room because coach Jack Del Rio decided it would boost morale with an old school "keep chopping wood" theme. Nice.
Sacramento King Lionel Simmons suffered wrist tendinitis after playing an excessive amount of Nintendo Game Boy.

Fresh New Lupe

Here's an unreleased track by my favorite rapper in the business. I wrote up a whole thing about my "no homo" love affair with Lupe before blogger had an error and I don't feel like rewriting it. All you need to know is I'm a big fan of his work. The track is called U Don't Know.

How in the world did MTV rank Lupe only 7th in the top-ten MCs list? Behind Rick Ross, Snoop Dogg, and 50? Wow.

Wheel Of Misfortune

The point of being on Wheel Of Fortune is showcasing your ability to spell and solve puzzles, this man possesses neither of those abilities.

Air Yeezy Not For Sale

Sorry, 'Ye-heads. According to an article by sole collector, the Nike/ Kanye collaboration shoe is for Mr. West's feet only. Ever since he wore them at the Grammys, shoe lovers- myself included- have been looking forward to their release. No dice. It appears that even though the shoe has been made in a plethora of colorways, none will be released to the public. I guess this is Nike's ever changing promotional technique. Really? Not one? Talk about super-exclusive. This is like Bapes on steroids.
My bold prediction: Nike will in fact release these to the public, but wait until '09 and keep as salivating with anticipation. After spending a year wishing we could get our hands on a pair, Nike will release them and nobody will complain about dropping $300 at Champs for them. Also look out for tons of fakes on EBay in the coming months.
