• Top Dawg Entertainment’s leading lyricist Kendrick Lamar has made a lot of internet and radio buzz lately with talks about the need for positivity in HipHop/Rap music today. His renown “I” single from his second upcoming album is a great example of this new level of positive rap. The young Cali-based rapper has finally released a visual for this up-tempo, fell-good track and the visual matches completely. The low lighting and underground setting of this video gives the full down to earth feel that surrounds King Kendrick’s reputation.

• So Thursday Night/Friday EARLY Morning The Queen of R&B, The Voice of Women Today, Hov’s Holy Grail, etc. Dropped an album nobody saw coming. Literally, nobody but Beyonce’s many management team members and close friends and family knew this was coming. She did no prior marketing for her ITunes Released visual album that has over 30+ tracks and videos (The way they sold this included tracks & then tracks with video. Genius). This album included songs like Drunk Love feat. Jay-z, Mine feat. Drake, Blow, Blue feat. Blue Ivy & many more. Needless to say her iTunes Sales are looking crazy & YouTube video searches are at the top. No one is shocked by the turnout but more shocked by how she delivered her 5th solo album. Obviously Jay-z’s marketing genius had something to do with this but who really knows (sarcastic tone).
