PERFORMANCE: Justin Timberlake at the 2013 VMA's

That Justin Timberlake performance was legendary. The whole thing was so uber reminiscent of Michael Jackson, it's nuts. In fact, his whole career is so reminiscent of M.J. From the being in a group to flying solo and then to captivating entire audience with a spectacular reunion on stage. He definitely is the most iconic performer of our time and I think it is so beyond fitting that he win the Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award. Truly inspiring. ~alx.O

NEW MUSIC: Big Sean - Control (ft. Kendrick Lamar) & Jay Electronica ::::This is the record where KDot throws jabs at Drake, J.Cole, and more::::

I heard all the commotion about Kdot's verse and before I go into that I just want to state firmly that Big Sean killed his verse. Probably one of the hardest verses yet from the homie BigSean.

So the KDot verse. The arguments here are, Did Kendick Lamar have the right, being that he's relatively newer than the guys he named, to claim king of New York? and did he diss those rappers he named?

Personally, I don't think he dissed anyone. In fact, the only thing I think he did was challenge EVERYONE. Which in my opinion is awesome. HipHop needs that competition. It makes for great music and creates even greater moments in history. I'm all for it. I'm a fan of everyone he named and of Ddot himself, this can only make hiphop stronger. ~alx.O

Below are the Lyrics to KDots verse

I heard the barbershops be in great debates all the time
Bout who's the best MC? Kendrick, Jigga and Nas
Eminem, Andre 3000, the rest of y'all
New niggas just new ni***s, don't get involved
I'm usually homeboys with the same ni***s I'm rhymin' wit
But this is hip hop and them ni***s should know what time it is
And that goes for Jermaine Cole, Big KRIT, Wale
Pusha T, Meek Millz, A$AP Rocky, Drake
Big Sean, Jay Electron', Tyler, Mac Miller
I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you ni***s
Tryna make sure your core fans never heard of you ni***s
They dont wanna hear not one more noun or verb from you ni***s
What is competition? I'm tryna raise the bar high
Who tryna jump and get it? You better off tryna skydive
Out the exit window of 5 G5's with 5 grand
With your granddad as the pilot he drunk as f**k tryna land
With the hand full of arthritis and popping prosthetic leg
Bumpin Pac in the cockpit so the s**t that pops in his head
Is an option of violence, someone heard the stewardess said
That your parachute is a latex condom hooked to a dread

Drake's latest release "Hold on, We're Going Home" is a strong and solid tune with something great for both core fans and new potential fans. The new album "Nothing Was The Same" definitely seems to be aiming for greatness. Whether thats true or not is yet to be seen but so far I like what I'm hearing. Enjoy folks. ~alx.O
