People will become more familiar with Sharon Jones &The Dap Kings after Tyler Perry's new film, For Girls Who Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf. If you want to get Hip, check out this short film (yeah, there's other creative minds out there besides Kanye), Game Gets Old: The Trilogy. This is a visual of SJ & TDK's first two singles, and brings its all together with a third. This excellent piece of work was directed by Philip Di Fiore. Learned The Hard Way is in stores now.
tragically died in a car accident. Hud 6 was once a member of Mase's Harlem World Crew and a good friend of Camron's. Well Camron dropped a tribute for his (and many people in Harlem) friend. However, this will be the first 'tribute' song that I ever heard, take shots and Cam took some shots at Mase. Rumor is Mase and Hud 6 had a fallen out years ago and didn't show up at the funeral or wake for Hud 6. Many people from Uptown were disturb by the fact that Mase didn't find time to pay his respect. You figure whatever beef Mase and Huddy had, it would be put to rest by his passing, but I guess not and Cam took out his ammo(pen). This is not a, "We'll Always Love Big Poppa" type of tribute song, but it is a good tribute song. One that will have many people shaking their head at Mase. download here...

Alright, now I understand about Antoine Dodson working his 15 minutes of fame, but there is an IMAGE problem here. Comedy, yes! Funny, yes! But in all honesty, is this really funny? How much will a person sell-out for? Oh and yes, this is a real app and a real commercial

Today ST joins the rest of the reggae world (and music world) in mourning the loss of one of the most unique voices ever to emerge from Jamaica, Gregory Issacs.
Issacs is one of the most famous Reggae Stars to emerge in the 70's from Jamaica, though he never achieved the same level of commercial success enjoyed by Bob Marley, Dennis Brown, or Jimmy Cliff, but Gregory had classics. 'Slave Master', 'Down The Line', 'Cool Ruler', 'Black a Kill Black', and (of course) 'Night Nurse' place him firmly amongst the all time greats. He would surely be missed.

Okay, So here it is,,,Kanye's, "Runaway" film. Relax, this is the CLEAN version. Now I'm not going to front, this is on some "Thriller" type of level. Now that's some homework. Whose video cost more and which short film is/was better? Kinda of hard to beat Thriller, but this may be a close second when it comes to the visuals and creativity.
