Pyramid Work.

Almost immediately after his very impressive SNL performance last Saturday, Frank Ocean reveals the music video for his channel ORANGE single, Pyramids. One of my favorite directors in the industry right now, Nabil, directed this one and I am not disappointed. The slightly NSFW video show Frankie Oceans as he goes on a (possibly Molly influenced) psychedelic journey through strip clubs and highways until he ends up at a strange object with John Mayer playing the same [Read More]

Blood and Gaga.

So Lady Gaga came out with a fragrance called Fame. The smell is based on blood and semen, supposedly. As gross as that sounds and even though I have no idea what it actually smells like, I think this is great. Lady Gaga also released a five-minute short film to promote this black liquid perfume and its pretty amazing. The dark, twisted, and psychedelic short film a lot of elements that you would expect from Gaga but [Read More]

Big Boy’s Neighborhood Style.

I know I’ve been terrible with the posts lately, but I really have been busy. :( So I know that you guys are probably tired of all theses Gangnam Style parodies and remakes by now, but I promise you that this one is different! Last Friday, I had the amazing opportunity to shoot a Power 106 Gangnam Style video with the one and only PSY and Big Boy’s Neighborhood. Oh man, I was so excited when I [Read More]

The Art of the Music Video.

Hypebeast started a new video series called The Videographers Guide. Its a new web series that documents young filmmakers as they produce videos mostly for the web in all different types of genres. In this first episode, the series talks about the topic of music videos and the filmmakers in the genre both back in the day and today. They go from the beginnings of the music video to its now mass produceable self within the digital [Read More]

Big Booty Heaux.

I might be hypebeastin‘ a bit, but everything that comes out of DONDA‘s doors is amazing. From the 2 Chainz B.O.A.T. album covers to, now, the music video for Birthday Song, DONDA has been the epitome of what bougie ghetto is and truly represents Kanye‘s design sense in the best way possible. Directed by Andreas Nilsson, an executive/director under Kanye’s DONDA creative collective, the music video for 2 Chainz and Ye’s Birthday Song features an amazing pseudo-one [Read More]

This Is My Type of Party. [EXCLUSIVE Rock the Bells 2012 Re-Cap]

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve been pretty busy lately. Not this past weekend, but the weekend before, I was given the chance to go and cover Rock the Bells 2012 in San Bernardino with my Power 106 family (who had the best presence by far at the event). As excited as I was to cover the events, I was not excited for the drive out there and the weather. The first day was almost [Read More]

Farmers Insurance.

I’ve always been a bit of a fan of RiFF RaFF. I knew I recognized Dirty Nasty, and with some research, found out he’s actor, Simon Rex. And Andy Milonakis, well, he let Based God fuck his bitch. With their powers combined, they have become the hip-hop trio known as Three Loco. The group is under Diplo‘s MAD DECENT label and just dropped one of their first music videos. The video and song for We Are Farmers [Read More]

Zucchini Blossolini.

One of my favorite people to blog about is back. Action Bronson brings us a new video in collaboration with MySpace for their OneToWatch series on cooking his fried zucchini blossoms. Bronson is a huge fan of food, and even took up the official title as chef before he actually gave it up for the rap game. The zucchini blossoms are stuffed with ricotta and served with a pseudo-tomato jam. Action Bronson also goes into his background [Read More]

Nicki, Big Sean, and 2NE1.

G.O.O.D. Music, Young Money, and YG all together in one video? You might be thinking that this is the collab of the century, but its actually just the new Adidas commercial with Jeremy Scott and his favorites: Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, and my favorite Korean pop sensation 2NE1. The new advertising campaign is called “All Originals Represent” and feature the artists representing different parts from all around the world. Hermann Deininger, CMO of the brand, says, “This [Read More]

Gangnam Style.

I wasn’t going to post this, but I think it is way too amazing not to. Even my non-Korean co-workers love it, so I think the whole world should enjoy this video too. Or at least the few of you that will end up reading and watching this. I was originally going to post this a few days ago, but I haven’t had the time. I guess its good that I waited because the other day, the [Read More]
