    Busta Rhymes is Back! All his tracks are fire

    Thank fuck. I haven’t blogged here for 3.5 years, because for various reasons, and one of the bigger ones was not being inspired by a lot of music out today. I’ve grown to appreciate some newer artists and go with how hip hop music is evolving, and I feel I’m in a more positive place to write here again. Shoutout also goes to one of my lifelong friends who will just send me a link to watch after months of not having chatted to each other, because that’s the kinda tight relationships I have with my besties. He was spot on with the BET Cypher 2020 that I blogged about earlier and…

    Ysabelle Capitule – Walk It Out (Girl Dance Routine)

    Walk It Out Girl! I remember losing my shit over this fine woman when I first saw this video back in December. There’s so much swag and groove in this routine, I couldn’t stop watching it. It made me excited about dance again, where so many choreographers out there are too stylised for my liking. I’m a new fan of this piece by up and coming California-based choreographer Ysabelle Capitule, known as the ‘Walk It Out girl’ after the snippet reached almost 6 million views on Facebook to date. She is just FIRE!

    Thug Notes: Pride and Prejudice Explained By A Gangsta

    A modern-day summary of a classic tale: Pride and Prejudice I’m digging this new short YouTube series where classic literature is broken down by a ‘gangsta’. The contemporary storytelling method is designed to assist millennials and younger generations to understand and appreciate the universal themes penned by Jane Austen, from what might otherwise be inaccessible prose as the vernacular changes more and more with the digital age. This video breaks down Austen’s second novel, Pride and Prejudice, which just happened to be announced yesterday as the “The Nation’s Favourite Second Novel” by The Royal Society of Literature. With so many modern adaptations and appropriations such as the one featuring Keira Knightley…

    [Video] Wild N’ Out – Best of Guests (Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Kevin Hart, Tyga & more)

    These freestyle rap battles used to have the illest, roughest kinda talent but catching a few clips of Nick Cannon’s Wild ‘n’ Out show didn’t leave much of an impression. Thankfully someone put together some of the best burns and damn I could watch Snoop burn all day. The Mariah jokes will probably start to get old and Nick takes them in stride, and I gotta say Tyga was pretty good with his audience participation. Check it out with Snoop, Kanye West, Kevin Hart, Tyga and a few more in this highlights video.
