An Incredible Weekend at Coachella (Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre Performance)

April 19th, 2012 by | Concert/Festival Review, Hip-Hop/Rap |

We’ve saved the best for last! As many of you already know, Snoop Dogg & Dr. Dre closed off an incredible weekend at Coachella. It was such a big deal that I had to make a separate post for just this set. So many great rappers made guest appearances with the hip-hop legends. The names include, Eminem, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, 50 Cent, Tony Yayo, Warren G and most notably the famous Tupac hologram.

This was by far the best live performance I have ever seen. Not only am I a huge fan of hip-hop and grew up listening to many of these great artists, but seeing them all live on stage was something I will never forget.

The Tupac hologram which the whole world knows about by now looked so realistic live. It appeared that he was actually there performing “America’s Most Wanted” with Snoop Dogg. Apparently, the movements, look, and overall Tupac hologram performance was copied from a show he did at the House of Blues in Hollywood back in 1995. The only thing different was that instead of saying “What’s Up LA?!”, the people behind the creation of the hologram changed it to “What’s Up Coachella?!” with his voice sounding exactly the same. It was truly and incredible process and something I feel is going to catch on at other festivals and shows with other dead artists very soon.

Below are my favorite tracks from the entire performance. For those of you going for Weekend 2, you are in for quite a treat. Please go to this performance on Sunday night instead of Avicii. Nothing against Avicii, he is great; however, he is always traveling the United States and it is extremely rare to see all these great rappers on one stage at the same time, especially with that Tupac hologram. I am sure that the people who went to the Avicii performance regret it. Don’t be one of those people. Enjoy!

January 26th, 2011 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Pop, R&B |

Did you watch the above video yet? It’s pretty weird but I guess David Guetta really likes the little weird looking kid to have him lip sync over some mainstream hits David Guetta produced. Do you think it’s weirder than this video with 50 cent?

One thing they all have in common; sexy beats with some solid flow. Enjoy!

Rappers Going Hollywood

July 23rd, 2010 by | Hip-Hop/Rap, Miscellaneous |



It seems over the last 10 years or so that many successful rappers have begun acting. Common and Ludacris are the most notable ones who have appeared in films such as “Wanted” and “Just Wright” (Common) and “2 Fast 2 Furious” and “Crash” (Ludacris). However, recently many rappers are starting to do the same.

T.I. has appeared alongside Denzel Washington and Common in “American Gangster” (2007) and will star in “Takers” which hits theaters next month. He has also appeared in an episode of Entourage and we will likely seem him in many more feature films in the near future as he has taken his talents from the radio to the big screen.

Scott Mescudi known by many as “Kid Cudi” does not have much acting experience and has only released one album so far. He is currently working on another one which is set to hit stores in September of this year. However, he has experimented with acting a little bit. He has appeared in a handful of episodes as “Domingo Dean” in the popular HBO series “How to Make it in America.” Though his role was not a big one, he proved here that he too can be a successful actor while release platinum albums.

Many other rappers have also had some success in acting. Andre 3000 from Outkast and appear alongside Mark Whalberg in “Four Brothers” and Will Ferrell in “Semi-Pro”, among others. 50 Cent and Eminem have appeared in movies which are based off their rise to music prominence in “Get Rich or Die Tryin” and “8 Mile”.

Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube have also had his fair share of movie appearances and many more rappers in the near future could do the same. With the entertainment industry offering many opportunities to these young artists, there is no question that more will follow what their successors have done.
