Jeezy - Vibe Magazine (April/May 2010)

As promised. Young Jeezy covers the April/May issue of Vibe Magazine. Damn, don’t think even Vibe posted this yet but Nah Right did. So goes the game.

Look out for my NEXT profiles on John Wall and Freddie Gibbs in said issue.

Jay-Z x Absolut ‘NY-Z’ Documentary

A 15-minute documentary on Jay-Z directed by Danny Clinch. Titled NY-Z, besides spending some quality time with the rapper/mogul, it’s part of a partnership between Hov and Absolut.

By the way, Jay-Z’s “Where I’m From” is > Diddy’s Dirty Money’s “Angels”; by leaps and bounds. Also, Cristal lost. [Checked at Complex]

Mos Def x Palm Commercial

The Mighty Mos Def is probably getting a nice check from this one. “Quiet Dog Bite Hard” from The Ecstatic (you can see the album cover at the :06 mark) plays in the background during the above Palm ad.

Sticking with my iPhone, though.

Also worth noting, the Steve Aoki mix of Kid Cudi’s “Pursuit of Happiness” can be heard in the Vitamin Water ad below.

VIDEO: Pac Div “Shut Up”

In a perfect world, Pac Div would win by default. Universal/Motown, what’s the hold up?

Raekwon “Flawless Crowns/Range Rover” Vinyl + Download

Raekwon "Flawless Crowns" 7"

Raekwon’s “Flawless Crowns,” produced by Mondee, gets the vinyl treatment. Not sure if it spins at 33 1/3 or 45, but only 300 of these purple joints have been made.

Another unreleased/mixtape gem called “Range Rover” is on the b-side. Available at Boundless NY. Make your Only Built 4 Cuban Linx II cipher complete with this high powered money. [Peeped at Freshness Mag]

Luis Guzman x Rasta Monsta x How to Make It in America

“Rasta Monsta, tastes like fruit punch, pero spicy.” —Rene

Luis Guzman is frikkin’ hilarious. I’m still debating the merits of HBO’s How to Make It in America (suspect acting, a vanilla take on streetwear/fashion, etc.) but one of the show’s main draws is “Rene” as portrayed by Guzman. Born in Puerto Rico and raised in the LES, Guzman is a perfect fit for the show, lending authenticity to his Rasta Monsta advocate/Dominican loan shark of a character.

Saying Guzman has an extensive acting resume is like saying Lil Wayne has dropped a couple of songs here and there. Revisit many a movie—Carlito’s Way, Boogie Nights— and you’ll be like, “Oh s**t, he was in that flick too?!”

But what makes Guzman possibly the coolest cat to ever rep the LES? He farms, cheese. That’s why you may have noticed him in those Cabot ads. Farming, son. It gets no realer.
