MUSIC WORLD: Rare Biggie Interview

Back in 1995, a UK TV show titled “Passengers” decided to profile then up-and-coming rapper, Notorious B.I.G. Fresh after the release of his debut album, Biggie takes the interviewers around his hood with some cameos from Lil’ Kim, Faith Evans, and his mom. Check it below.

Faith Evans on camera smoking weed and holding Biggie‘s gun. Voletta Wallace discredits his “Christmas never missed us” line from “Juicy.” Just chock full o’ gems.

MUSIC WORLD: Sampha’s “Too Much” Sans Drake

I’m still working on my review of Em‘s latest album. So to distract you from my tardiness, I’m giving you a treat. Everyone likes treats. Sampha (singer featured on Drake’s song “Too Much,” among others) has released an acoustic and Drake-less video of “Too Much.” Enjoy it below.

The earthiness of his vocals makes me feel like I’m drinking hot cocoa cuddled up with one of my boos waxing poetic about the affordable care act and pondering a gluten-free diet.

TAKE IT BACK TUESDAY: Mya x Dru Hill “It’s All About Me”

My young ratchet ass (before it was known as ratchet), used to loooove Mya songs and their grown up themes. I’m sure she was all of 15 or 16 when singing these songs making me about 12. But you couldn’t tell me that I wasn’t fed up cooking dinner and washing clothes for my imaginary boyfriend. This week’s Take it Back Tuesday is dedicated to “It’s All About Me” featuring Sisqo Dru Hill.

I’m pretty sure she’s part of the reason I got my nose pierced as an adult. And remember when every light skinned girl thought she was Mya with the “Chinese “outfits and chopsticks in their hair? Ah… the good ol’ days.

VIDEO WORLD: Rihanna “Pour It Up”

Though Unapologetic dropped almost a year ago and the remix failed to gain any buzz, Rihanna finally released her visual to “Pour It Up.” It’s a little late, but if you want to see Rihanna on a pole (and who doesn’t?), check it out below.

Still think Rihanna should’ve pushed “Loveeeee Song” with Future. But we know that’s Ciara’s boo and…. Yeah.

VIDEO OF THE WEEK: Pusha T “King Push”

Pusha T has released the visual for the opening track of his solo debut. “King Push” finds Pusha T reveling in his (previous?) lifestyle through carefully constructed wordplay. Check the visual below. I’m DONDA had hands all in this.

Pusha‘s debut album My Name is My Name releases October 8th. You interested? I am!

VIDEO WORLD: Drake “Hold On, We’re Going Home”

Just like he promised, Drake has released the visual for “Hold On, We’re Going Home” today. Drake flexes his acting chops and flashes back to a time when things were simpler. Check it below.

The video supports Drake’s album, Nothing Was The Same which leaked last week hit store today!

MUSIC WORLD: Kanye Sits Down with BBC

Kanye West still has his Kardashian voice on while sitting down with Zane Low for a one-on-one for BBC 1Xtra. Check part one of the interview where he discusses radio, Yeezus,  reactions to his art, and production. Check it below.

It’s an interesting interview and part 1 of four. I’ll update as the rest of the videos are released. Thoughts?
