John Legend & The Roots - Hard Times (featuring Black Thought)

John Legend and The Roots are bringing out the best of each other’s great taste for pillar songs from soul music’s prime—the ’60s and ’70s on this new album. I really think this new album could be a benchmark in both of their careers. It’s rare we see The Roots make an alliance with a solo artist, Jay-Z was one of the last great moments when ?uestlove and company made history with him on his Unplugged album, carrying their live synergy to Madison Square Garden and beyond. Overall I really dig this song (Hard Times) and the entire album. It's about 11 tracks deep and all are very good. Check out this video of the live version.

Album in stores now!

Is this the worst rap song ever?

Here is her/their promo truck:

Once again we ask, is this the worst rap song....EVER?

World's Scariest Job

While this has NOTHING to do with music it is still by far VERY interesting, check it out.

I'm man enough to say there are parts in this video that gave me the shakes...I could never do this job.


The explanation for removal is here, at the website.

Pay: 12.50 - 20.00 hourly

Online Engineer says people on the outside might think the hourly pay seems low, but he says its not, because there is massive amounts of overtime and you get paid travel time/per diem.

Lola Monroe - Men Lie (directed by tabi Bonney) from tabi Bonney on Vimeo.

I bet you're wondering why we have Angel Lola Love (aka Lola Monroe) video on our blog, well besides the fact that she is our favorite Trinidadian/Habesha (Ethiopian) model we have two very good reasons!

1.) This video was directed by one of our favorite artists/musicians "Tabi Bonney".

2.) And at the 46 second mark Lola Monroe says our "office" mantra!
