Manny X 'I Just Want To Know'

I first just want to apologize to my guy Manny X because he sent me his music like a while ago and I've been wild slow and late with posting it on here, but the wait is over. Manny X you've probs heard of him, but for those who haven't he is a singer/songwriter/producer/what can't the man do musically representing Puerto Rico and currently living here in the states. Manny X's track, 'I Just Want To Know' is a gorgeous song that displays his piano playing skills along with his soothing voice singing about that love that is no longer in your life and reminiscing on the moments shared and if her new love does the things Manny has done for her now. I enjoy how there really isn't any other instruments or any other effects or what have you in the background that takes away from the beautifulness of the song and his voice. His range is nicely shown in this love song and a great starter song for people to hear and then wanna check out more from the up and comer Manny X. He already has many songs, released a couple albums and has his music everywhere and has fans not just in the US but also internationally based. I deff suggest Manny X to anyone out there that wants to hear some good R&B music sung by someone of real talent.

Frank Ocean 'Novacane (Official Video)'

Frank Ocean is on a roll with dropping the videos for his music, he's just hit us with the release of the music video for his song 'Novacane' which has been getting much radio play recently. Unlike the 'We All Try' video this is the official version and once again, Frank stuns us with the visuals for 'Novacane.' One thing I really enjoy about his videos is that they aren't really flashy, but they really get you interested in wanting to see what happens next and they relate to the video which is always a plus. To be honest, after watching the video and really listening to the lyrics I can understand what he's saying and going through in the song. I'm not gonna get into detail, but I want ya'll to check it out yourselves. The video was directed by Nabil Elderkin, and this song along with many more hits is on Frank's "Nostalgia. Ultra" album which is going to be re-released and on iTunes (pretty soon I believe).

Gym Class Heroes 'Stereo Hearts (Feat. Adam Levine)'

Finally new music by Gym Class Heroes. I feel like it's been forever since I've heard some new stuff from these guys. If you forgot or don't know who Gym Class Heroes are, they are a group that mixes hip hop/rap flows from front man Travis McCoy or "Travie" for those of you that know him through his solo act and a dope band behind him rocking it out on the drums, guitar and bass. I've honestly been waiting a cool minute for them to drop something new or if Travie's solo act meant the end of the band, but they have dropped a new track 'Stereo Hearts' which features Maroon 5's frontman Adam Levine singing the hook. I'm digging the song, it's something poppy, dancy with that hip hop vibe to it and I like the collab between Gym Class and Adam. I'm hoping they drop a new CD or at least more music.

Frank Ocean 'We All Try (UNofficial Video)'

Frank Ocean, maybe you've heard of him or maybe you've been living under a rock all this time, but he is a member of the loved and hated group Odd Future, but instead of bringing the rhymes as does the rest of the members of Odd Future, but Frank is a singer with a gorgeous voice at that. I first bought into the hype after listening to his song 'Swim Good' and immediately had to download his album "nostralgia/ultra" and the whole album is amazing with great samples and original music. 'We All Try' has recently become my new favorite song by him and I am excited that he has shot and released a video for it. Just found out this is just an unofficial video for the song, either way here it is. The concept for the video is amazing, and will definitely have you on the edge of your seat until the end.

Yelawolf 'Daddy's Lambo (Official Video)'

I've been waiting and waiting and waiting and waiting for this video to drop and today is the day. Yelawolf and his team have dropped the HIGHLY anticipated music video for his song 'Daddy's Lambo' which features the production of DJ Drama as you know of Rob Dyrdek's "Fantasy Factory." The song if you haven't heard it is...well I'll just let you guys listen to it and watch the video. Yelawolf has been doing big things recently, with the signing to Shady Records (Eminem's Record Label), continuing to put out hot music for his fans, and now the drop of 'Daddy's Lambo.' It's a great day for Yelawolf fans. I hope ya'll get out and support by buying his music, videos, cop those CDs. Might I add that it was dirty of him to pull off with her Lambo while she got out to go pee.

Kanye West 'Monster (Official Music Video)(Feat. Rick Ross, Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj & Bon Iver)'

So if you remember I posted the video for Yeezy's song 'Monster' and I guess apparently that wasn't the official video, it kept being taken down and all this on YouTube, but guess what? The real and OFFICIAL music video for Kanye's song 'Monster' has been released to the public and it's crazy how different the actual video is. Lol, but seriously what was the point of this? The "new" and "official" video is the same one I posted a while ago except it has slightly better quality for this one and they added in that like 30 second singing part by Bon Iver (I think). I mean sure I didn't actually watch the new video to fully check out the differences between the two versions, but the parts that I did see were similar. I'm not really a fan of this song, some people think it's illuminati related or whatevs, so call it what you want.

KiD CuDi 'Marijuana (Official Video)(Dir. by Shia LaBeouf)'

Yes, another new CuDi post for ya'll. The man, the myth, the rager, KiD CuDi has debuted the music video for his song 'Marijuana' and I have it for ya'll. This is one of my favorite songs off of the "Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager" album (well I mean is there even a song off of that album that I don't like? nah didn't think so). The video which like the video for 'Soundtrack 2 My Life' and 'Mojo So Dope' where it's not a usual music video, but some actual footage of Cudders and his boys and his fans and yes you called it that pretty green bud. I really like these music vids Cud does instead of trying to act something out and what not because these seem more real and like he's inviting us into his world through video and music.
