The Truth With Elliott Wilson: Kanye West vs. J. Cole [Video]

Elliott Wilson and Life + Times are back with season 3 of The Truth series. This should be good...

J. Cole Born Sinner | Kanye West Yeezus


Wake Up With The Breakfast Club: J. Cole [Video]

Well, the Breakfast Club has come a long way. Karma Loop sponsorships and J. Cole? We're about to have to start paying for this content. Maybe I shouldn't have let that into the universe. Cole world.


JP's Camera Roll: #Started

Long way from data entry.

That Kanye West Commercial...

Inspired by the real American Psycho in Kanye West.


#MagnaCarta [Video]

We've been a little M.I.A. But I swore this was the coolest thing I had seen all week. Why do I feel like I would listen to a album by the producers in the room, without words? Am I alone?

Make some new rules...

Check out "Big Boy Dialogue" featuring The-Dream, which is available on iTunes right now.


The #CRWN Interview Series - @ElliottWilson x @JColeNC [Recap]

As the 2009 Cherry Red Dodge Charger turns the corner of 10th Avenue onto West 16th, the initial sight of the line that awaits, populated with hip-hop heads, "Internets," and groupie-hopefuls (I mean, why in the hell else would you wear that skin-tight, stripped skirt...accentuating every curve you inherited from your mother and those 7-inch red-ish bottom joints to a standing room only, interview?!) is beyond devastating.

*immediately unlocks iPhone*

*Google: Highline Ballroom capacity*

" the midnight?" I mumble to myself, as I rethink this commitment.

The second installment of Elliott "YN" Wilson's #CRWN Oprah Winfrey-like interview series in the meatpacking district, features Roc Nation standout, J. Cole. Following the first installment's stellar feature in Tyler The Creator, this follow up is sure to elevate the brand. The timing couldn't be better as Cole prepares for the release of his upcoming sophomore effort, Born Sinner, scheduled for a June 25th 18th drop. There are varying outstanding questions. The cliche: "So, how's working with Jay-Z?" Or some rendition of that. The answer is always elusive and "you know, Jay is a really down to Earth dude." Or some rendition of that. Then there's the whole moving the album's release up a week to compete with the machine that is Kanye West and his already highly publicized Yeezus album.

*takes a moment to recognize the "irony" in an album entitled Born Sinner and an album entitled Yeezus releasing the same day ... ... ... makes a conscious decision to stay in the house on June 18th*

Admittedly, Jermaine's sideline story is entertaining, intriguing, and captivating...minimally. By simply listening to his discography, there's the potential to feel almost instantly connected to the artist and person that is J. Cole. His music is expressive and personal. Some would argue that this alludes to his success as a recording artist in the 21st century music industry.

For those who are familiar with Cole, it comes as no surprise that his first response to Elliott Wilson's first question, which was essentially "How do you feel?" ultimately ends in a LeBron James analogy. There were times I thought, "this kid is wise way beyond his years" and "his moment is approaching, rapidly."

That's right, "his moment." Even after the impressive Cole World: The Sideline Story debut moving 218,000 units in its first week...under shipped and all...the feeling that he has yet to maximize his potential resonates among onlookers like myself, like the Elliott Wilsons and even the Jay-Zs of the world. There's more to come from Young Simba. And you have the pleasure of being able to witness, first hand.

J. Cole - "Crooked Smile" (Feat. TLC)

All you need is some TLC to fix that "crooked smile." Born Sinner, June 18th.


@Wale x @Rihanna - "Bad [Remix]"

Isn't this what we've been waiting for?! Wale has publicized on more than one occasion that Rihanna, coined "the original bad girl," was supposed to be on the first version...but due to scheduling conflicts *cough, Diamonds world tour, cough* the songstress couldn't make it happen. As history would prove, Tiara Thomas stood out phenomenally. Yet in still, "Bad" simply sounds like the perfect song for a character like Rihanna. Without further adieu...

The Gifted is right around the corner, June 25th.

Clap it up for Rihanna, who recently watched her seventh studio album, Unapologetic sell a million copies!

Wake Up With The Breakfast Club: @Wale [Video]

So as you all know, has been all over these interesting/entertaining/informative Breakfast Club interviews. I had been hearing about this interview since its inception.

"This guy went to the bathroom in the middle of the interview!"

"Wale kept it so real."

"Wale is a real dude."

"Wale let me know the rap game just might have a future."

Wow. I had to play this. In my head, I had to post it. So, in my head this post has been live for a few days already. In addition to actually leaving the interview to go to the bathroom (peep Charlamagne's face though), he discussed his release date, competing with J. Cole, his platonic relationship with Rihanna, and the saturated rap game.

Before we get into this video, kudos to Power 105.1 and The Breakfast Club for their maintained buzz. Some of my disconnected friends are connected now. Their listening. And they don't listen to shit...
