Listen, I’m no Family Guy groupie, nor have I ever heard of this dude Mikey Bolts until my buddy introduced him to me over the weekend, but he has some serious talent.  If you breathe Oxygen, you should be able to recognize at least two of these voices.  Do I think it’s kind of strange how his facial expressions look eerily like the cartoons themselves?  Yes, without a doubt.  Do I wish I could pull off those impersonations?  Yes, without a doubt.  Any way you cut it, this Bolts kid has skills.  Check out his YouTube channel for more Family Guy covers.

Hip-Hop | Eminem ft. Rihanna – The Monster

Posted by on October 28, 2013


As most of you know, Eminem’s new album The Marshall Mathers LP 2 is set to release a week from tomorrow on 11/5/13. Today we get the latest single from the album featuring Rihanna. Stream it below and purchase it on iTunes at Midnight.

Surprise, guess what FNT favorite wrote Ri-Ri’s hook on this record?  I’ll give you a hint; Onjay Ellionbay [translation].

Hip-Hop, Pop | Kat Dahlia – Gangsta

Ex FNT blogstar, SeñorScoop, pushed this track in front of me a couple weeks ago.  He said dude, “Listen to this chick.  She’s the next Rihanna.” I took it with a grain of salt (as I usually do) and gave it a listen.  Decent, good at tops.  I was wrong – this song is magical.  The 22-year old Cuban-American boasts vocals equivalent to Rihanna’s deeper notes, continuously delivering honest, edgy lyrics over a slow piano driven production.  This is quickly becoming one of my favorite songs.  Oh, and if it’s any indication that she’s destined for success, Sylvia Rhone (arguably one of the most powerful women in the music industry) was the one who gave her a platform and eventually signed her to a new division of Epic Records, Vested in Culture.

Mashups | DOSVEC – Bright Diamonds

Bright Diamonds

DOSVEC takes Rihanna’s vocals from “Diamonds” and combines it with The Knocks “Brightside” (TheFatRat Mix). This mashup highlights both side of the spectrum by starting off chill on the breakdown then hard on the hook.


Pop | Rihanna — Diamonds Remix (Feat. Kanye West)

Posted by on November 17, 2012

Though I have a rapidly-growing repugnance for the kind of dubious, diluted songwriting which plagues Rihanna’s “Diamonds,” my serious infatuation with Kanye’s sense of humor has made this remix irresistible. Today I took my first listen of his almost two-minute-long introductory verse, and whether its intention was as a satire on pop radio lyricism or not, it’s a knockout. Though there are many competent contenders in the race for most un/intentionally hilarious mainstream emcees of our time, for the time being Kanye’s got it on lock. Favorite quotables: “Baby, just step up and kiss the belt…a little lower…that’s wassup,” and “my style like sex in the shower, fresh as fuck.”

Pop, Videos | Timeflies Tuesday: We Found Love

“We Found Love” was first recreated by Timeflies for their Under The Influence mixtape.  While on the road in Salt Lake City, the boys hit the studio for a few hours to cover their own cover.  I would say I was skeptic of the idea of covering ones cover, but knowing Timeflies resume, that would be a blatant lie.  Always creative, always reinventing, this shines a whole new light on the song.  ‘Phat beat maker’, Rez cooks up a stringy beat without the hard hitting sounds we heard on the original, as Cal once again flexes his pipes and annunciates the lyrics. Don’t let this think you can cover your own cover, because frankly, you probably can’t.

If this doesn’t ignite the apocalypse, I don’t know what will.  While I’ve been sitting here in denial with belief that Timeflies Tuesday was on a short hiatus, this 320 karat diamond pops up on my newsfeed.  BOOM.  While Flo Rida is naming songs after the world’s biggest pop star and drooling over RiRi’s short shorts and various hair colors, jumping on every remix opp that comes his way, Rob Resnick and Cal Shapiro are letting their talents do the talking.  It’s not easy to successfully sample the hottest song of the year, but Timeflies did just that, surpassing the feat with flying colors.  I have to hand it to Taylor Cut Films and OB Films for putting together one hell of a live footage video.  #UnderTheInfluence mixtape coming soon.
