lupe fiasco the instrumental video

Lupe Fiasco blessed us with his third new song in as many weeks earlier today, but here’s a blast from the past: the unreleased video for “The Instrumental,” off his 2006 debut album Food & Liquor. Although the Chicago rapper doesn’t actually make an appearance (which might explain why it was buried away for so long), the clip captures Lupe at his political peak as it sees a group of scientists carrying out tests on an insane (or so we’re made to believe) individual who is completely consumed by a magical cube lamp.

Shouts to Fake Shore Drive for the heads up.

As a friend of Chris Brown since his very first showcase in New York City when he was still a young teen. Ebro has been in Breezy’s corner through all the ups & downs. Though, they haven’t had a radio interview in quite some time, their relationship has always been a 100. This morning (Oct 31), however, Chris finally returned to the morning show to discuss all the hot topics with HOT97’s Morning Show.

“For a while I was really just like lead a stray. Just with the wrong crowd — a while bunch of gang members. Just doing a gang of stuff I wasn’t supposed to be doing, ” says Chris about his string of erratic behavior and arrests earlier this year.

Chris says it was his family members that helped get him back on the right track. There was a period of time where the singer admits he was with all the wrong people.

Ebro: The drugs were a issue, too
Chris Brown: “Oh yea. I was turning up. I was off the syrup, the xanax. Turnin’ up
Ebro: At the same time?”
Chris Brown: Yea, you know… that’s the hood cocktail right there. And, I’m not ashamed to talk about it. A lot of our youth is doing it now, thinking it’s the cool thing to do. And I don’t knock anyone’s hustle but I just feel for me it wasn’t conducive to me. I was falling asleep on video sets, cussing people out, crazy stuff.

flying lotus ready err not

After delivering one of the best videos of the year for his collaboration with Kendrick Lamarm, Flying Lotus brings in Halloween with this nightmarish video for “Ready Err Not.” Tapping the twisted talents of David Firth (one of FlyLo’s “favorite animators of all time” and the creator of Salad Fingers), the creepy clip begins with FlyLo getting decapitated by a Sloth from The Goonies look-a-like, before a whole series of disturbing and downright indescribable scenes take place. Yep, you should probably wait until after work to give this a watch.

chris rock snl promo

As you may have heard, Chris Rock and Prince will be taking over Saturday Night Live this weekend (November 1). But because Prince is, well, Prince, Chris was left to shoot the promos with only the help of cast member Bobby Moynihan. Watch as the pair take to the streets of New York and try to hunt down the legendary singer (sort of), before having girls screaming at the mere mention of his name. Reminds me of myself in many ways.

The Ebola scare in America shouldn’t be taken lightly but there’s a lot of people out there being a bit ridiculous about it. Retailers are selling Ebola Halloween costumes online and there’s been some insane conspiracy theories about the virus. But leave it to Jim Carrey to bring a quick breath of comic relief to the situation. Last night, he personally tested David Letterman for Ebola on The Late Show.

Have you ever kissed a monkey or licked an airport toilet seat?

Suge Knight and Katt Williams were both arrested last night on an alleged robbery charge. CNN reports that the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said each man was charged with one count of robbery.

There was a joining of the U.K. powerhouses last night at Albert Hall located in Manchester. All was going according to plan during Sam Smith’s headlining concert when Ed Sheeran crept out from backstage during “Stay With Me.” Together, they finished out the song in harmony and had the place lit.

“So amazing to have this KING @teddysphotos on stage with me tonight. Such a wise and true friend to have. Love ya brother x.,” wrote Sam Smith on Instagram.

t-pain npr tiny desk concert

Although he wasn’t the first, T-Pain certainly used Auto-Tune better than most (see: “Buy U a Drank,” “Kiss Kiss,” “Can’t Believe It” and damn near every other R&B hit that touched radio airwaves in the mid to late ’00s). Don’t get it twisted, though; he can sing like an angel without it. The rappa-ternt-sanga recently delivered a Tiny Desk concert for NPR, in which he performed a medley of hits with only the help of his keyboardist, Toro. And, well, prepare to be amazed.
