Kendrick Lamar Releases ‘DNA’ Video Starring Don Cheadle

In case you didn’t know, Kendrick Lamar‘s music is here to save 2017 from being a total disaster. It has sucked pretty bad so far but with Kendrick’s album DAMN at least we can have a really fucking awesome soundtrack while it all goes down hill.

Today, Kendrick dropped a music video for ‘DNA’ starring one of my favorite actors, Don Cheadle.

Having Kendrick and Don in the same type of artistic performance I only have one word for it, dope.

Man Crush Monday : Kendrick Lamar

Image result for kendrick lamar

Kendrick Lamar is absolutely one of the most important rappers out at this very moment. I would say that between him and J. Cole there isn’t anyone out there with more important lyrics.

Kendrick’s last two albums have been absolutely brilliant. I loved them both but his latest album, ‘DAMN’ it’s on another level. It’s been on repeat since it’s release, just a great song to bump in your car, and it actually has deep meaning to it. Can’t complain about either of those things.

Not only is Kendrick one of the most lyrically talented rappers I have ever heard, he is also pretty cute. I mean he only stands at 5’5″ but I am still about it. Nothing wrong with being pocket sized!

Happy Monday and if you haven’t downloaded ‘DAMN’ go do it now!

Kendrick Lamar’s Album ‘DAMN’ Will Drop This Friday!

Kendrick Lamar‘s song “Humble” is currently the highest charting rap song since Eminem’s “Not Afraid” so as usual, Kendrick is so hot right now.

There has been talks about when his album will be released but as of right now it is set to be released on Friday, April 14th.

The album has 14 songs and two collaborations, one with Rihanna and one with U2.

I can’t wait to hear what type of creativity K.Dot came up with for this one.

Kendrick Lamar Releases “HUMBLE” Music Video

I am going to be totally honest, I don’t think I understand art. I don’t understand artistic music videos but I can appreciate them. I hope that makes sense. End of the day I think that Kendrick Lamar is one of the most talented rappers out there right now. His music and videos are always powerful.

The visuals for this video are absolutely insane. I can appreciate how put together this video is, even if I don’t understand the meaning.

This song is absolute fire though. The beat, his flow, the lyrics, it’s a super bop.

Let me know what you think!

Listen To Kendrick Lamar’s New Song “The Heart Part 4”

Uhm, Kendrick Lamar just committed a murder and I would like to call the police. He just killed the whole rap game.

Kendrick definitely went in on this new track that he released. It was a surprise for everyone , yesterday he posted the cryptic photo posted above, and now he is on the top spot on ITunes.

No word on when his new album is coming but it wouldn’t surprise me if it was in fact a surprise.

Radiohead, Beyonce, & Kendrick Lamar Headline Coachella 2017!

Whoever made the lineup for Coachella deserves a raise, that is for sure. This lineup is absolutely insane.

Of course the three main headlining acts are Beyonce, Kendrick Lamar, and Radiohead but there are a ton of other acts that are performing that I would love to see. Then again I am not a rich hipster so I will probably never be at Coachella.

One name that really pops out at me is seeing Lorde. Does this mean we are finally getting new music? It has been far too long since we have heard anything from her debut album. A lot of people hate her voice but her talent is undeniable.

Other than that you have Bon Iver, Mac Miller, Grouplove, Travis Scott, and many more incredible acts!

My favorite though? Hans Zimmer. If you think you don’t know him you do, don’t worry. He is an award winning movie composer. He had composed scores for ‘The Lion King’, ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’, ‘Gladiator’, and much more. That will be the trending performance on social media, I am sure of that.

A Complete List Of Who Is Performing At The 2016 American Music Awards

Tomorrow night (November 20th) the American Music Awards will be taking place and the line up is absolutely insane. One thing about this awards show is that it isn’t really much of an award show. I think they give out like five awards but most of it is live performances.

This year it is like your radio is going to be performing live, so if you aren’t completely sick of hearing Fifth Harmony or the song “Closer” yet, it is the right show for you.

It is being hosted by Jay Pharoah and Gigi Hadid.

Check out who will be performing!

Let’s be real, there will probably be some kind of surprise guest as well, which would be awesome. Word on the street is that Selena Gomez will be there even though she is taking time off to focus on her health.

Are you excited for the line up?

Rihanna, Selena Gomez, Kendrick Lamar & More To Perform At The Globel Citizen Festival

Well that is quite the line up, right? Between this lineup and the IHeart Radio Festival I will be crying that I can’t go to either!

So you thought right? You can actually win your win way in through social media, which is pretty incredible. By sending out different tweets, Instagram posts, there are different ways to earn points and be eligible to go to the concert.

All of the information is here.

Obviously the performers are incredible. Rihanna, Usher, Selena Gomez, Metallica, Kendrick Lamar, Ellie Goulding and more? All for free? Well all for kind of free. You just need to start getting active with your activism on social media.

The hosts are pretty incredible too. Who would have thought you could see Chelsea Handler, Hugh Jackman, Neil Patrick Harris, Priyanka Chopra, and more on the same stage together?

So go do some good and maybe win your way into an incredible concert for an incredible cause!

The 2016 Grammy Performers Have Been Announced

The Grammy Awards are right around the corner and now we have the list of the performers for the night! The lineup is pretty stacked too.

Adele is back to perform on stage. She already has ten Grammy’s to her name and I am sure that next year she will add at least another five to that collection. Of course her album ’25’ didn’t make the deadline for this years Grammys.

Kendrick Lamar is the other performer. Last year her sang with Imagine Dragons but this year he is totally on his own. Little Big Town and The Weeknd will round out the night for performances.

Hopefully they have a few more people perform but it should be a good show! Can’t wait to see the winners. If you forget who is nominated check it out here!

58th GRAMMY Award Nominations Have Been Revealed!

grammy noms 640

Can you smell it? It smells like awards season is in the air and I couldn’t be happier about it! I thrive during award season! There is nothing like watching all of these celebrities pretend to smile when they lose awards, that is the best. I love when they stand up and actually cheer for the other person too!

The GRAMMYS are one of the best shows of the year, sometimes. It is the party before the Oscars because those are so boring, when it happens check your Facebook newsfeeds and everyone will talk about how boring it is. Then you have to let them know it has always been boring.

I have done this the past two years so here come my GRAMMY preditions! Fun fact, I am awful at this. For someone who follows entertianment the way that I do you would think I would be better, but I am just not.

Now you have to remember there are always dark horses because people who win at voted by the academy of music or something like that. It isn’t about record sales, remember that Kanye so you don’t rush the stage again.

So here we go, the bold is who I think should win and italics is who will probably win. I know technically that is two predictions but I don’t care!

Also before anyone freaks out about Adele not being nominated, she didn’t make the September 30th deadline. She will be nominated in 2017, I promise.

Album Of The Year:

Sound & Color — Alabama Shakes

To Pimp A Butterfly — Kendrick Lamar

Traveller — Chris Stapleton

1989 — Taylor Swift

Beauty Behind The Madness — The Weeknd

Now listen, I wasnt a bit fan of this album but it is truly an incredible feat for Taylor. She made the complete transformation from country to pop artist so effortlessly and I think that she truly deserves this win.

 

Record Of The Year:

“Really Love” — D’Angelo And The Vanguard

“Uptown Funk” — Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars

“Thinking Out Loud” — Ed Sheeran

“Blank Space” — Taylor Swift

“Can’t Feel My Face” — The Weeknd

Although I think that Bruno Mars desrves this win I genuinely believe that Ed Sheeran will win. Bruno of course is doing something different though, he and Mark Ronson put out one of the hottest songs of the year. The throwback to funk music was incredible, people don’t usually do things like that anymore. They like to stay in their box. Ed’s song was so beautiful though, I mean I feel like it has to win.

Song Of The Year:

“Alright” — Kendrick Duckworth, Mark Anthony Spears & Pharrell Williams, songwriters (Kendrick Lamar)

“Blank Space” — Max Martin, Shellback & Taylor Swift, songwriters (Taylor Swift)

“Girl Crush” — Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna & Liz Rose, songwriters (Little Big Town)

“See You Again” — Andrew Cedar, Justin Franks, Charles Puth & Cameron Thomaz, songwriters (Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth)

“Thinking Out Loud” — Ed Sheeran & Amy Wadge, songwriters (Ed Sheeran)

Kendrick has always been a favorite at the GRAMMYS and I genuinely believe that he will win this category. The song “Alright” is easily one of the most powerful songs of the year. Again this is how it is written, this is the award for the song writers. Kendrick deserves this award due to his social realism and his incredible lyrics.

Best New Artist:

Courtney Barnett

James Bay

Sam Hunt

Tori Kelly

Meghan Trainor

I am ahuge Tori Kelly fan and I think that she absolutely deserves this award. She is an incredible songwriter, singer, and performer. I swear when she performs she demands attention and she gets your attention. I mean she stole the VMAs with her performance. The people who win this award are always obscure though, that is why I am guessing James Bay will win.

Best Pop Duo/Group Performance:

“Ship To Wreck” — Florence + The Machine

“Sugar” — Maroon 5

“Uptown Funk” — Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars

“Bad Blood” — Taylor Swift Featuring Kendrick Lamar

“See You Again” — Wiz Khalifa Featuring Charlie Puth

Honestly, as long as Maroon 5 doesn’t win I will be happy. I would love to see Mark and Bruno pull out the win but I think that we will see Wiz and Charlie up there accepting the award.

Best Dance Recording:

“We’re All We Need” — Above & Beyond Featuring Zoë Johnston

“Go” — The Chemical Brothers

“Never Catch Me” — Flying Lotus Featuring Kendrick Lamar

“Runaway (U & I)” — Galantis

“Where Are Ü Now” — Skrillex And Diplo With Justin Bieber

I don’t want Bieber to win but then again I am not sure if Kendrick will be able to take this home. The other songs I am not even sure of. So honestly, anyone could win this and I probably wouldn’t care.

Best Rock Performance:

“Don’t Wanna Fight” — Alabama Shakes

“What Kind Of Man” — Florence + The Machine

“Something From Nothing” — Foo Fighters

“Ex’s & Oh’s” — Elle King

“Moaning Lisa Smile” — Wolf Alice

Critics love Alabama Shakes, which is why I would assume that they are going to win. Florance is an incredible singer though so I hope that she can pull out a win. Like I said before though, critics love Alabama Shakes.

Best Alternative Music Album:

Sound & Color — Alabama Shakes

Vulnicura — Björk

The Waterfall — My Morning Jacket

Currents — Tame Impala

Star Wars — Wilco

Alabama Shakes again, I dont really know the other artists. My Morning Jacket is great but again, I can’t see them beating Alabama Shakes.

Best Urban Contemporary Album:

Ego Death — The Internet

You Should Be Here — Kehlani

Blood — Lianne La Havas

Wildheart  — Miguel

Beauty Behind The Madness — The Weeknd

Although I woud love to see The Weeknd win big here, I think that Miguel will take it. His music is so good, his lyrics are so smooth, and I think that he has what it takes. Hopefully he doesn’t jump over the stage and nearly decapitate a girl when he wins though.

Best Rap Album:

2014 Forest Hills Drive — J. Cole

Compton — Dr. Dre

If Youre Reading This Its Too Late — Drake

To Pimp A Butterfly — Kendrick Lamar

The Pinkprint — Nicki Minaj

If J. Cole doesn’t win I am going to riot, that is all that there is to know. J. Cole is one of the most gifted artists of our time. If he doesn’t win I will write a strongly worded blog directed to the GRAMMYS!

Best Country Album:

Montevallo — Sam Hunt

Pain Killer — Little Big Town

The Blade — Ashley Monroe

Pageant Material — Kacey Musgraves

Traveller — Chris Stapleton

Although I think that it has been Sam Hunt’s year the music industry is really pushing Chris Stapleton down our throats. Don’t get me wrong I think he is incredible! I think that he is great and honestly when it come sto music he is potentially a step ahead of Sam Hunt. I know I said before that this awards show isn’t based on fan popularity which is why I am saying that Chris is going to take it home.

 

 

 

 

So those are the predictions that I have come up with! Yes there are more categories than the ones that I posted but I didn’t know any of the artists!

Let me know what you guys think here!
