Dupri touches on the importance of shades and eyewear in the hip-hop realm from early on, brought to you by good people at The Vintage Frames Company.
The most essential part of the present is remembering the past. Without knowing our history, we can’t really understand where we are at presently. Corey Shapiro and The Vintage Frames Company premiers its series on The History Of Eyewear In Hip-Hop. Our first episode begins with legendary super producer Jermaine Dupri as he takes us through on a journey through the importance of eyewear in the Hip-Hop culture. From Kris Kross to The Fat Boys, get an insight on where it all began. For more behind the scenes action, Vintage Sunglasses, and Vintage Chains check it out online. – The Vintage Frames Company
After watching this video, I think it’s safe to say that I haven’t had a music video make me feel like I just took drugs in a long time. I’m not upset about it, I just wish I had some 3D glasses to throw on. Maybe those girls rolling around on the bed would look a little different on my screen. If you’re not at the club, which most of shouldn’t be at 4:30 in the afternoon, Clinton Sparks does a great job at making you feel like you are in “Favorite DJ”. Check it out.
I have to admit, when I first heard this song on the radio it was met with a “WTF?” look at my boy who was riding in the passenger side. Naturally it began to grown on me the more I began to hear it. Here we have the remix which is almost DJ Khaled size and it features Jermaine Dupri, Bow Wow, Red Cafe and B.o.B. Forgive my ignorance and my inability to Google what it means to “dougie”. Anyone care to share? Spotted over at OS.
Been gone for a minute now I’m back again. We’ve got the ‘All My Life’ (So So Def Remix) for your listening pleasure. Jermaine and Bow Wow join Jay Rock and Lil Wayne on the track to share a little bit about their lives. Check it out below.
It looks like Jermaine Dupri was relieved of his duties at Island Records yesterday. JD was the president of their Urban Music Division for nearly two years. His position was dropped primarily due to his lack of performance. JD brought his wifey Janet Jackson to the label, Jagged Edge and most recently Q Da Kid. As most of you know, if you keep up with music at all, none of those artists have really done well recently. Q Da Kid is fresh into the game so we’ll have a chance to see how he does in the future. Is the job market going to get any better any time soon?
Here’s the official video for Bow Weezy’s latest, ‘Roc The Mic’ featuring Jermaine Durpi. The video was directed by the world famous, Hype Williams. Bow Wow’s upcoming album New Jack City Pt. II drops this coming March.
