I have seen a few videos by these guys. Very talented, and she can rap! This one features Quest Love from The Roots. I want one of those little electronic drum pads he is using!

This one is pretty impressive too, No idea how she spit Busta’s rhymes so good!

Gank Video x Orchestra covers Kanye West’s ‘All of The Lights’

A band called ‘The Portland Cello Project recently did a double-drummer, orchestral- instrumental cover of Kanye’s ‘All of the Lights’ from his latest album ‘My Dark Twisted Fantasy’. This was performed at a sold out show in December at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland Oregon.

Knowing Kanye, he will probably fly these guys out for his next show to perform with him.

Lil Wayne on the cover of Rolling Stone

Fresh outta jail, Weezy has made it onto the cover of the Rolling Stone. The mag will hit the streets this Friday and you can read all about his time spent on Rikers island this past year.

Here are some notable quotes from the article

on Lebron James & Dwayne Wade not greeting him when he sat courtside during a New Orleans vs Miami game

“Them niggas never speak to a nigga,” he said. “They don’t chuck me the deuce or nothing. Nigga spent all that money on them fucking tickets… Come holla at me. We sit right by them little bitch-ass niggas. At least come ask me why I’m not rooting for you.”

On playing UNO in jail

“I’d bust a nigga’s ass at Uno,” he told writer Josh Eells. “We gamble for phone time. I’d take nigga’s commissary: Lemme get them cookies, lemme get them chips, get that soup.”

Oh, and here’s the cover.

Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf x The XXL Cover

Here is the cover for March’s issue of XXL that features Eminem, Slaughterhouse & Yelawolf. The rap supergroup Slaughterhouse consists of Detroit rapper Royce da 5’9, Brooklyn-native Joell Ortiz, Jersey rapper Joe Budden and Crooked I from Cali. Yelawolf is looking to be the next big artist, so signing both to Shady records was not even a question to Eminem.

Eminem & Yelawolf on the signing

“Yelawolf and Slaughterhouse, it’s kinda phase two of Shady,” says Eminem. “It’s the new generation of Shady Records and as we’re trying to rebuild our label, it’s exciting for hip-hop and with all of these forces coming together and with what everybody’s capable of on the mic, it’s gonna be fun.”

Said Yelawolf: “Considering where I’m from and the shit I’ve been through, it’s hard to put into words what partnering with Shady means to me, my team at Ghet-O-Vision, and my state of Alabama. I can tell you that when you’re willing to give your life up to see a dream through, the reward is great. And now that I’ve become an apprentice to one of the greatest artists in the world, my potential reaches beyond anything I ever imagined. Let’s kill this shit.”
