"I'm Not Afraid" by Eminem is one of his top 5 hardest songs that he's laid down on a track. Argue with me on that if you like and I'll be more than happy to provide you with my top 5 list with this one being somewhere around 4 or 5...ready??? exactly I didn't think you were ready lol, but I digress.

Quote of the Day

The hardest thing you will ever experience in life is doing something that you despise doing on a daily basis. If this is you, promise yourself that you will follow through on whatever goal you have, so you can stop the insanity. - Jouran Crosby

fashion BLOC: All Hail McQueen!

Fresh out of retirement and a new model at IMG where she got her model beginnings, Tyra Banks is paying homage to her late friend, Alexander McQueen. So in order to pay tribute, Tyra wore head to toe McQueen in an over the top fashion spread for her online magazine, www.tyra.com. "McQueen was considered royalty in the fashion community," she said on her site. "I would like to think that he would have loved these photos." She also plans to continue this tribute on the latest and final season of "American Next Top Model". McQueen took his own life in February. Great job Tyra!

the Vid Bloc: Lil Wayne ft Nikki Minaj - Knock Out

Ok I will admit that I've been a proverbial non-believer in the Young Money movement, but I think they've finally secretly won me over. The music coming out of this camp right now is hot. I know "hip hop purist" from across the globe are like "WTFE" to Young Money and pretty much any artist receiving an abundance of commercial radio airplay, but you have to admit this one thing...Lil Wayne has put together a team of juggernauts.

The critics have been less than kind towards Lil Wayne's "Rebirth" experiment album, but who really cares what critics have to say anyway? I love to write reviews and I'm excited when people comment on my reviews, however, I understand a review is nothing more than a goblet of Haterade or bowl of KissAssness. 

Damn I went on a tangent there lol .... bring it back Ran ... bring it back 

My bad I lost that important thingamabob called a point lol. Oh yea here it is, the point is Lil Wayne's experiment was actually pretty decent. Check out the below video release of "Knock Out" - Lil Wayne ft Nikki Minaj.

It's a fun playful song and video; but the Birdman cameo in the middle of the video almost killed it for me. Birdman should understand when to do his best impersonation of Lil Wayne's stunt double and when to just post up and play Martin Scorsese by sitting behind the scenes. This was one of those times where he should of been Casper and got ghost, but again I digress.

Hot song and sick guitar runs. Looking forward to more music from this team.
