NEW MUSIC::: Logic - Nasty

I been hearing about this cat and now I finally hear something from him. I'm glad to say I am not disappointed, this dude got bars. I don't know to much about him yet but something tells me that, that might change soon. ~alx.O

Studio Session: J. Cole Breaks Down The Production For "Power Trip"

As a producer myself, I always love it when artist make studio session videos. It shines a light on the creative and technical side of the music, while also giving you a glimpse of how organic those process can be sometimes. Like in this case messing around and slowing down a snare hit, and that sound be craziest part of the whole beat. There is no blueprint for that kind of magic, that shit just happens. But anyways, I'm getting ahead of myself. I love the song and I enjoyed this video, definitely makes me an even bigger J.Cole fan. ~alx.O

Sirah - "Up & Down" [Music Video]

She’s a pint size doll spitting rhymes and singing lines amid a crowd of music junkies at the height of SXSW. LA based songstress/rapper Sirah took the stage of the W Hotel Austin with the fury of a freight train and the delicacy of a princess. “I feel like all those East Coast rappers raised me. JAYraised me,” Sirah states pre-set in Austin. Though she left a mark on the music scene with her collaboration with Skrillex on the Grammy Award winning “Bangarang,” her love for music comes from the rawness of hip-hop. “Coming from a hip-hop background… it’s a culture, it’s a lifestyle. No matter what kind of music I’m making, that’s where I start from, “Sirah interjects passionately. “Skrillex at the end of the day is a musician. Whether he’s making computer songs or playing the guitar – he’s a musician. I’m a hip hop fan. That’s where it all stems from.” Her zesty stage performance matches her zeal and forward thinking lyrics as a songwriter. Subtlety is a far cry from Sirah’s reality and mission.

Rick Ross (Feat. Omarion) - Ice Cold [Official Video]

Rozay's back at it again with another banger and this time he brought along Omarion. Although this no doubt was a Rick Ross song, my attention was more on Omarion. As a fan,  It's so good to hear new music from him and if this track is evidence of anything, it's that he hasn't lost it. Can't wait to hear more. ~alx.O

Ciara - Body Party

I have been a fan of Ciara since day one. I've always thought that she brought a very much needed element to the female R&B game. And although as of late she's been having some trouble getting back to where she once was, I think this song is a perfect catalyst for showcasing what exactly that much needed element is. Her moves made this video sexy and her vocals made the song even sexier. ~alx.O

Alicia Keys & Maxwell - Fire We Make

Although not the most complex song, lyrically, in the world, it definitely holds true to that classic Maxwell sensuality. And once you add the very talented and uber sexy Miss Alicia Keys, this song goes from sensual to sinfully erotic in a heart beat. This ain't baby making music, this is "Imma fuck the shit out of you" music. It's a winner in my eye's, and boy did my eye's enjoy Miss Keys playing with that ice.. Fellas, trust me… your eyes will too ~alx.O

T.I. - Memories Back Then ft. B.o.B & Kendrick Lamar

This track just got better as it went on, starting with T.I. followed by B.o.B. and finished with Kendrick. This track is beyond dope, every verse told a very specific story and with each one you where left with something to think about. I wasn't. however, to convinced with Kris Stephen on the hook. I mean she has a nice voice but I definitely felt like she wasn't as unique as her track mates. I'm not counting her out  as a singer, but she was definitely own shined in this one. ~alx.O

Fabolous - We Get High

I can't hate on this track because it's good for what it is, but I know loso can definitely harder than this. So I'll take it. Oh and that Rihanna line was pretty funny..lol ~alx.O

Glenn Becks Claims A Saudi Student Allegedly Linked To 2 Boston Bombers & Deportation!

Although I reserve my own opinions, I felt this was a perspective worth sharing. Do with it what you will. ~alx.O

Glenn Becks Big Announcement: About A Saudi Student Allegedly Linked To 2 Boston Bombers & Deportation! (Saudi National Once Considered A Person Of Interest In Boston Bombings)
Monday morning Glenn Beck laid out what he knows about the Saudi connection to the Boston marathon bombings. It is a story that the mainstream media has all but completely ignored, though Beck says TheBlaze's Chief Content Officer Joel Cheatwood reached out to numerous other networks in an effort to get the story out. Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano refused to acknowledge the story even existed when questioned by Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) last Friday.
