Girl Fire, Pop | Mike Posner- Tapada World (Prod by. Diplo & Benny Blanco)

Posted by on May 10, 2012

Just when I thought Mike Posner and his circa 2002 chinstrap beard was down and out, he comes out with a new Diplo produced single. I should have known, as he was responsible for writing and producing Justin Beiber’s “Boyfriend” which is just a track and a half. Originally leaking in a Reebook commercial, this Diplo and Benny Blanco produced single is off the charts, even though it doesn’t sound completely finished. I suspect G.O.O.D. Music’s “Big Sean” will add a quick sixteen to the song before it’s all said and done. P.S.- Listen, Reebok, I didn’t want to include your album art in, but I did. Free advertisement. You’re welcome.

Review | A Token White Guy… At The 2-Chainz Concert in Dallas

Posted by on April 9, 2012

Friday night, precipitous persona 2 Chainz arrived in a white stretch Hummer limousine, packed full of women and choice entourage at the Main Event Center. With a wingspan rivaling most NBA power forwards, 2 Chainz’s menacing frame appeared not a moment too soon before a packed house full of aspiring rappers and female fans.

In his past life, he was Tauheed Epps, a high school basketball prodigy recruited by Alabama State University. After playing one season for the Hornets, Epps formed Atlanta’s Playaz Circle with childhood friend Earl Conyers, perhaps best known for their hit single, “Duffle Bag Boy,” featuring Lil Wayne. Shortly thereafter, label trouble struck, along with the incarceration of Conyers, causing Epps to adopt a new nom de plume.
