If you like hip-hop, then you will probably enjoy The Black Keys and their soul, jazz, blues sound. The first Blackroc album is still in my iPod, it's a classic in my opinion. The second installment will feature Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Sean Price, Jim Jones, UGod, The Cool Kids, and others. Coming Soon!

Premiered today on 106 and Park. The track is from Maybach Music's "Self Made" album.
Just let it load and skip to the 1:30 mark. The intro is lame, but the track is pretty cool and araab on the MPC is always dope.

Video shows Spitta breaking his ankle... Ouch!
I never posted the original version of this video, i'm not sure why, but here is the extended cut for your viewing pleasure.
You may not like her music, but you have to admit that she is an extremely talented performer and one of last nights highlights. After the jump you can see Adele's, Chris Brown's and Pitbull's performances
The last minute performance was good, but just a blip in the many great performances at the VMAs last night. You can check out Lil Wayne performing "How To Love" and "John" after the jump.
Super dope video and a different look for Nikki than we're used to.

MTV catches up with Drake to ask about Lil Wayne's recent Jay-Z "diss" song. As expected, Drake explains that he just did a verse, if you want to hear more, talk to Wayne.
Last Friday, the young as hell group, Kids These Days, played a free show to kick off the Magnificent Mile Shopping Festival. The band, lead by front man Vic Mensa, has been a rising force in and around Chicago. Their sound is different, and being so young, they are sure to improve rapidly. Go grab their "Hard Times" EP on iTunes, it's only like $5 or something and it's well worth it.
Action Bronson has been all over the internet lately and this clip features several new joints from his and Statik's upcoming LP. Mr. Selektah and his projects never disappoint my ears and i'm sure you'll agree. the set was recorded live from the Diamond Supply shop in L.A. @nickydiamonds has blown up this last year and I fully support the fresh gear that they drop on the regular. Check em out HERE.
These Kia commercials with the Hip-Hop "Hampstars" put a smile on my face everytime they come on. Whoever is in charge of their marketing campaign should be getting a raise. There is so many bullshit, boring commercials out there, these have been a refreshing change of pace. I look forward to seeing many more. This new one features a soundtrack from LMFAO and they are even featured in an alternate commercial. Enjoy, and replay it, I know you want to.
