During BET Awards pre-show yesterday, the French Princess premiered her new video. A couple of scenes were shot on E. Houston St, a few blocks away from the Rap Radar launch pad. The song and visual received mixed reviews online, but I am on the fence.
Over the weekend, MTV2 premiered the latest visual aid from upstart, Joey Bada$$. The clip’s directed by hipster favorite Va$htie and follows Joey through NYC’s concrete jungle. The song trails off after a while, but there’s more in-store if you check out his mixtape, 1999.
After a two year hiatus, Keyshia Cole’s returning to the main stage. And she’s coming equipped with a new single featuring Lil Wayne. This doesn’t sound half bad and neither does Weezy’s verse. Woman To Woman coming soon. hhnm
This is some intergalactic shit. Here’s David Guetta’s new video featuring Chris Brown and Lil Wayne. I can only imagine what this would sound like if Weezy’s verse was better.
Before the close of the BET Awards, Tyga and Ca$h Out hit the stage and performed “Rack City” and “Cashin’ Out” respectively.
One of the great highlights from last night was the Tribute To Whitney Houston. Honoring the late singer was Monica, Brandy, her mother, Cissy Houston, Gary Houston and an oh-so-slim Chaka Khan.
