Posted in Dope! New Music, Dope! Pics with tags , , , , on April 19, 2009 by simplydope

Damn remember when Teairra Mari was the princess of The ROC? Then Jay saw them album sales, made a switch, and then Rihanna became the new princess.  That didn’t stop Teairra though she’s back after a couple years and a couple of album contracts she might finally be on the right path to success and she’s joining up with her former label mate Kanye West for a ROC reunion! You know you feel them late 90’s and them early ’00’s!


Speaking of Kanye he recently posted some his new Louis Vuitton ads on his blog:

Them black ones is killin me softly! (but whos lookin at the shoes doe). Imma stick to my Air Yeezy’s doe because these 1000 dollar shoes are a little bit out of budget.  As for Amber Rose if you got her flaunt her…that goes to Kanye…lol

I now see how Barack Obama is taking over the nation. After sitting out in the hot sun at a football stadium at Dublin Coffman High School in Dublin, Ohio waiting to hear Obama speak, I now see why he is going to be the next president, he is truly inspirational. Oprah, Kanye, MJB, and Forest Whitaker were also inspired by Barack Obama:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

T-Pain and Lil Wayne a.k.a. T-Wayne are the perfect collaboration. The two that are on EVERYBODY elses songs finally got one together. The song is okay but I’m liking it more now that I have seen the video.  Very different indeed it seems like Kanye done gave him some inspiration on the set of ‘Good Life’.

Speaking of Kanye here goes the video for ‘Good Morning’ one of my favorite tracks off of Graduation. This video reminds me of myself trying to do good in school make on time for class. Hotness indeed.
