J. Cole - Cole Summer (download)

I am always excited for a new J. Cole joint, always; especially when he's sampling a former fave with Lauryn Hill's "Nothing Even Matters" (from her classic "Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" album, featuring D'Angelo). Check out "Cole Summer" produced by Young Simba himself below, and look out for a treat tomorrow!

Shout out to 2DopeBoyz!

Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines ft. Pharrell & T.I. (unrated video)

Last week I discovered this track for the first time, a whole month after it's debut on Thicke's former reality show, BET's Real Husbands of Hollywood. No, he didn't leave the show because he was insulted by Kevin Hart's songbird attempts and his "Frost Without You" spoof, he's just got more to do than be a reality show starlet. But I digress, I am OBSESSED with this song! The audio and the visuals, which YouTube removed the unrated version of the Diane Martel-directed video, for violating their Terms of Service. Oddly enough you can still find N.E.R.D's "Lapdance" video, which is much more sexually aggressive. Needless to say, I've learned something from all this, that Pharrell Williams loves tits. 

Watch the Unrated version below of the Marvin Gaye "Got to Give it Up"-inspired track, and look for Robin Thicke's sixth studio LP set for release this year.

Pound the Rock Raptors!!!

Tonight is the Raptors final home game of the season.  They will be playing against my beloved Boston Celtics, who are just coming off of cancelling their last two games due to the horrific bombings at the Boston Marathon this Monday.

The Celtics are currently have the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference.  They have clinched their spot in the playoffs but tonight may be a tough game as the Raptors are currently 6-1 in their last 7 games.  The Raptors are pounding the rock these days, some may say a little too late, but I think they are showing us what is to come next season.

My Birthday wish was to see this game tonight at the ACC, but alas no dice. Never the less I'll be cheering from my lovely couch, all decked out in my Celtics gear, since it's their regular seasons last game too. 

UPDATE : I am going to tonight's game after all.  Due to the wonderful Birthday Surprise from Aleashia Ga.  On a less joyous note the Boston Celtics will be wearing black bands on their uniforms tonight in remembrance of the victims from the bombings at the Boston Marathon. 

This awful act has hit me hard as I myself am a runner.  I have dreamed of running in the Boston Marathon for years and I hope that these horrible circumstances do not take away from the amazing event that it will be and that is has been for the past 117 years.

My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone that has been effected by this horrible attack.

Miguel x Kendrick Lamar - How Many Drinks (BTS video + audio)

This past weekend Miguel performed his ridiculously sexy (and my present alarm tune) "Adorn" and "How Many Drinks" on the SNL stage, the latter of which he has recently remixed featuring Kendrick Lamar. The gents along with VIBE show a behind the scenes shot for the upcoming video of “How Many Drinks (rmx)” shot in L.A. last week.

Also check out the song in its entirety below, I'm currently obsessed with Miguel and it's pretty obvious that I'm a K. Dot fan, so this collab is pure auditory alchemy.
