It's been a minute since Eazee Street went to an event featuring plenty of LIVE performances from the LA Homies. I'm talking about artists that have been down with the site for years now like Shawn Chrystopher, Mann, El Prez, Raven Sorvino, BEeFF, Coolroy, Hugh Augustine and of course Eazee Street's resident artist Chris Focus. So come through and watch all my folks and more. There will be more than hip-hop at this event so get ready to hang out all day and night and enjoy music, art and more. I mean it's not like you're going to be at Coachella [who goes to that shit?]

If you missed it last night because you may have been out partying Miguel did his thing on Saturday Night Live [SNL]. He performed tow songs from his Kaleidoscope Dream album. His Grammy award winning song "Adorn" above and his new single "How Many Drinks" below. Shout out to the fam Brook D'Leau on stage rocking per usual. Enjoy.
The super tatted internet phenoms collaborate for a futuristic video. I know YMCMB is breaking major bread on these Tyga videos. Enjoy.
Kid Cudi hung out with my guys the L.A. Leakers and gave them a great 3 part interview. In part three he talks working with hometown hero Kendrick Lamar. Special shout out to Janice Llamoca for sending this over.
In part 3 of Cudi's interview with the L.A. Leakers DJ sourMILK and Justin Credible, Cudi breaks down the beat that inspired Solo Dolo II, and why he choose to collaborate with Kendrick Lamar "I looked at Kendrick Lamar kinda like the new solo dolo, like a n**ga doing his thing and killing it." - L.A. Leakers
Because in Los Angeles we're always looking for new taco spot I figured I'd highlight a new spot in Santa Monica. The spot existed on La Brea but they needed to "stretch out their legs" into a more cozy area. Oh, they also have bacon guacamole, that's an interesting dip right? Pics of the new spot after the break.
They did Game of Thrones for an opening "couch" sequence...now they take on Breaking Bad. Breaking Bad is that popular AMC series that everyone but me has seen but me because the closest I've been to seeing it is by doing this artwork here. Anyways, enjoy this clip.
Audi has teamed up with Marvel Comics to give fans a chance to make comic book history! You can drive the story and become co-creator of a Marvel comic book by crafting the final frame of Iron Man's desperate battle against Blizzard's icy attack. How will Iron Man get himself out of this one? Use sketchpads, cameras, or anything you need to decide Iron man's fate and then go tohttp://www.steerthestory.com/ for the chance to see your name in a Marvel comic book.
Once again Audi has Tony Stark in an R8 for Iron Man 3. Nothing matches the superhero power of Iron Man's armor like his R8. Every superhero needs a super car and the 2014 Audi R8 is Iron Man approved.
Speaking of the homie Sean Falyon, gotta make sure I put ya'll on to the homie's new EP, December. Click that link below and make sure to get your copy off of iTunes. Enjoy.
December - Sean Falyon
The homie Sean Falyon sent me this new track he's featured on. OneHunnidt is from Houston and is making plenty of noise out his way. Take a listen.

I haven't been into canvas "basketball" kicks for a long time [more like forever] but when you see canvas hoop kicks you know summertime is on THE way. I do like a couple of the colorways so I probably just need to see the canvas kicks in person. What is going for these is that they're Questions. More colorways after the break. You can get these on 4.26.13
You may have seen me tweet about this article I wrote; if not here it is. As a guest writer for MMXLII.com I weighed in on the Rick Ross/Reebok debacle because of the rapper's "rape lyric". Just a quick perspective on "gangsta" rap, corporate brands, their relationships and responsibility. Take a read over here.
Speaking of Los Angeles legends coming to an end, KDAY has been sold and rumored to no longer be a hip-hop station. Though I wasn't always on board with some of the things KDAY did when it re-emerged as an FM station, the station did plenty for the city of Los Angeles. You never really appreciate these types of things until they are gone. A big salute to KDAY, for better or for worse the station will ultimately be missed.
As you can see I'm not here to talk about the game last night, something more important than that win happened. What happened was my favorite player and arguably the greatest Laker may have gone down for [dare I say it] good. With little time left in a pivotal game on a routine play, Kobe turned a corner and his leg didn't, he collapsed,
I haven't paid attention to New Balance kicks in a minute, BUT I'd be lying if I said these didn't catch my attention. I may never go out of my way to buy them, but if I saw them in person I might be interested. The colorway itself is what got me. Spotted this at Kicks On Fire, I'll let them explain after the jump with a few photos as well.
I heard this trailer/clip whatever you want to call it was pretty fucking awesome, soooooooo...
No fucks are given that I'm late posting this shit. I'm excited about it still, oh and I just found out a FREE copy is on the way. Perks of being me.
The TDE entries for this year's XXL Freshmen class take show up for some freestyle action. Q keeps it gritty and Soul drops some intellectual jewels. Enjoy.
I'll stick to New York real quick as I post this video of one of my favorite tracks off the A$AP Mob mixtape. It has that old school Mobb Deep feel to it. Off that I was sold. Plus Twelvyy & Da$h is nice. Besides Rocky, these are the two I fucks with.
Let's go out of town real quick. As a Fab fan I've gotta post this video. The song isn't bad, a bit too Drake-ish to me but whatever. Ironically it has Chris Brown on it who we know is beefin' with Drake and I swear Fab takes his opportunities to throw shots at the Canadian too. Now after watch this video it's obvious I need to go to Dominican Republic because even the maids in the hotels there are bad enough to bring back home to the states and marry them. I now have goals for when I finally make my trip there.
Because of KLSH & Rochelle Jordan I was able to see Jessie Ware perform LIVE, and she was awesome. Then after the show KLSH & Rochelle introduced me to her. Great person, so with that, she has my support. Enjoy.
A day in the life of hip hop's brightest star, Kendrick Lamar! We spend a day with him and his crew just ahead of his big Spotify Live show. Yo Ret I see you sir...

Well since we brought up the homie Miguel, he's featured on the other homie J. Cole's new single and they dropped this dope ass video for it. So if you're reading this right now then you might as well just watch this video.
Let's keep it to the behind the scenes clips real quick. If you haven't been following them or me on Twitter then you probably had no idea these two had a track coming out together, a remix to a popular track from Kaleidoscope Dream [in stores NOW]. Well they're also gracing the cover of VIBE together. Here's some behind the scenes of them working on the video. Hit the jump for the magazine covers and to listen to the track.
A sneak peek of YG's upcoming video for "I'm A Real 1" that even gets a Drake cameo. Check it out courtesy of the good folks at Skee TV.
Check out this weeks episode as Terrace Martin rocks the stage at Paid Dues and connects with his folks such as Talib Kweli, Murs, Skeme, Schoolboy Q, Absoul, Kendrick Lamar, Problem, Bad Lucc, & Warren G.

Snoop is keeping VERY busy as he gets ready to release his Reincarnated album. I heard this song a couple weeks ago but didn't know he was dropping it so soon. You'd expect some sort of corny, poppy song I'm sure but it's a bit more refined than that. Definitely something that can take off for radio. Only time will tell. It's already getting a LOT of positive reviews. I just wanna know if she's gonna TWERK in the video tho.
In case you missed it last night, or you want to watch it again...or even pay as close attention to it and write a news story of Kobe and Shaq still can't be on the court together, here's the video of the halftime retirement ceremony for Shaquille O'Neal. Check it out.
I missed this event since I was coming down with the flu, but if you went or heard about it, Big Sean, AraabMUSIK and of course, Uncle Snoop got together at a secret location to rock out for some lucky fans. All brought to the people courtesy of adidas. Relive the night or see what you missed.
Pusha T FT. Kevin Gates | Trust You from Matt Alonzo on Vimeo.
I feel like I wasn't supposed to like this song from Pusha T's mixtape, EP, project or whatever that shit was he put out there. However this is one of the songs I actually play often. Here's the visual, filmed right here in Los Angeles, like everything else it seems.
Alright let's stick to the subject of ladies, oh my random attraction to Iggy Azalea tho...ok I'm back, my bad. Anyways she's released a new video for the song "Slo." Take a look, I'll be taking a few.
Ok while we're talking kicks real quick let's show off some cool women's shoes. I like women and I like shoes, so when I see a possible way to combine the two for an awesome combo I have to speak on it. Now the Air Max 90 and I have a love/hate relationship but I think I always love them on a woman's feet. So ladies here's a good choice. I should probably put Kimmy up on these, I don't think the homie has stepped into the Air Max world. More pics from KOF after the break.
Nahhhhhhh...I've been off my kick game lately, well at least on the site, but I had to come back and address these. This is a horrible idea, a horrible execution but for some reason I'm sure the hypebeasts are salivating at these images. Not just salivating but creating an account to save money for it, sharing pics with their friends, fantasizing over the girls that won't actually swoon over them after seeing them in the shoes. But I'm going to shut up and let ya'll tell it. Shouts to the homies from Kicks On Fire for sharing the images.
Dj Mustard and Kenneth Wynn team up to bring you another Episode of Mistards day in the Life Series. In this one we get a up close an personal look into the studio. And a couple of fellow Pusha Ink cameos from Ty$ YG Rudeboy B Moore and Atlanta Rapper Alley Boy as well. Take a look! - Kenneth Wynn
You may remember me posting this project awhile back. It's a good one so if you need a reminder here's a video for the title track. Enjoy.
Bruh...Nicki's talking. Just watch and say you want in your head.
Sue me if you want, but I'm rocking with this song. The video has some elements that we all could have done without but...whatever.
It's also good to see that Snoop can still get down with his homies from back in the day. Here's an ode to the city we all love courtesy of Snoop, Daz and Kurupt. Enjoy.

I remember reading some of the storylines where Wolverine/Logan was fighting off members of the Yakuza, random ninjas and more. So when in doubt bring a popular storyline to the big screen right?
Calm down...it's not a new song or video; simply the homies doing they thing on separate platforms but I wanted to highlight it all together. Above, Kendrick performs "Poetic Justice" on Jimmy Kimmel, after the jump another he does "Bitch, Don't Kill My Vibe" and Schoolboy Q getting busy at SOB's in NY.
Keywords: Hoe Butter and Barnyard Innocence.
I really like the video for this track. I was already fucking with the song but had started playing it a bit less as of late. The video may have given it some new life for me.
Speaking of Kendrick Lamar, the official video of 50 Cent featuring Dot hit the webs awhile ago. Take a look [more than once].
One of my favorite tracks off his mixtape, the breakdown at the end gets finessed a bit for the video. Enjoy!

Saw the homie at SXSW and just like that he's right back at it. Here's his newest video for a track off his recently released "The Higher EP".
A new video from the homie "O", directed by the homie Danny. I'll say that this one is for the ladies because I'm not sure About trying to watch a video where my boy is there with a shirt off the whole time. The song is from the forthcoming album Love And Other Drugs.
My Uncle Snoop gives some insight into his new single No Guns Allowed from his Reincarnated album. The track features his daughter Cori B and hitmaster Drake. Check it out above, listen to the track below.
Mama, there goes that man. Kobe seems to be racking up more ambassador positions as he nears the end of his career. I mean we all know about his airline ambassadorship, but now we hear about this thing with Hublot. Details below:
Hublot continues to add to its already considerable roster of brand ambassadors with the announcement of Kobe Bryant as its newest partner. To commemorate the partnership, Hublot has unveiled the Kobe Bryant x Hublot King Power Black Mamba Chronograph Watch – a luxurious, limited edition timepiece truly befitting of a man of Bryant’s caliber.

The watch will be available exclusively at select Hublot boutiques. - Hypebeast
I think I became more of a Star Trek fan ever since the JJ Abrams rendition dropped. I liked Star Trek when I was younger but I was always more of a Star Wars fan. But as of late the new Star Trek films look to be in better hands than the new Star Wars films. Anyways here's the new trailer. Hi Zoe...

Simply because Black Moon might have changed my life. This is more so my personal nostalgia than anything that has anything to do with the city of Los Angeles. The full clip is to be released by Red Bull...can't wait.
Fresh off dropping the “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” Remix with Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar is back on dubcnn with yet another treat for the fans. Before invading Austin’s SXSW Festival last week, Kendrick returned from a month-long tour in Europe. With the critically acclaimed album «Good Kid, M.A.A.D City” approaching platinum status, we sat down with K.Dot at his last tour stop in Zurich and discussed his major success in this exclusive interview. Kendrick speaks about his past as well as possible future directions, dealing with pressure, Dr. Dre’s absence from the album, day one fans and more.

3 reasons I'm posting this: the two artists and the 1 producer. You may remember Kornbread from Those Chosen, Bishop Lamont got many a post on this site, and of course when there is production from J Bizness, the West Coast is being well represented. The track is from Kornbread's forthcoming album "Superlative".
Now you may have become familiar with the song "Them Niggas" by the I.E.'s very own Audio Push as they collaborated with their homie, Grammy award winning producer, Hit-Boy. Well there was a shout out to Daz & Kurupt on the song and that shout out inspired the veterans to make their version of the song. In other words, a "G-MIIIIIIIXXXXXXX".
How I hadn't posted this earlier just proves I was slippin'. Anyways my homie DJ Sean G aka Magic Seanson dropped an awesome mixtape for the world. Hit the jump for the tracklist and the download link.

What you need to know about the homie's project: Track number 15 on ...one rifle per family. was produced by Karman, a high school youth who honed his skills as a student of Sessions LA - a youth and student workshop series that DJ Phatrick helped develop in the Historic Filipinotown district of Los Angeles. Karman has since found his own voice as an experimental Hip Hop producer with a very unique sound. After hearing what Karman had done with an old Tommy Wright III record on his Soundcloud, Bambu asked Karman to replicate such for his latest Beatrock release. After the release of the music video for Lean, Bambu once again sought out Karman to put together this 5-song Free(EP), The Lean Sessions. Something to play to help get you through your work day... Lean.
The Lean Sessions EP - Bambu
I was made aware of this artist back when she did a remix of Schoolboy Q's "Hands On the Wheel" track. Apparently Snow tha Product is from Cali but living in Texas. We've seen a rise in female emcees lately which is really cool, it's also good to see a female emcee that's reprensenting for the ladies. This SXSW performance clip made it to my inbox c/o Fly Times Daily. Hit the jump to see what they had to say.
I posted a video from the homie 'Werk awhile back and if you've been sleeping he has a new project The Graveyard Shift. Today I bring you his EPK. Hit the jump to read some words from 'Werk.
Met this artist via the homie KLSH at the El Rey when Rochelle Jordan opened for Jessie Ware. Her name is Stoney, she's from the bay and she told me she spits. Here is a visual for her track Bumpin Makaveli. Directed by the homie Phil Mao [always good to see him behind the lens]. Enjoy.
The homie C-San is back with a visual from his newest project Dreams & Reality. Check the video, download the project.
Finally got a visual for the TurnUP anthem from the Diamond Lane all-star Problem. Problem makes some stops around the city highlighting cameos from some well known factors in Los Angeles. Directed by the homie Danny aka Topshelf Junior.
Simply because it's one of my FAVORITE songs right now...deal with it. Off that I Am Not A Human Being II.

Young Veggies just dropped his newest video from his Life Changes project. Directed by the homie Jerome D. Enjoy...I'm bout to hop on a plane.
I never post much Odd Future stuff unless it grabs my attention OR someone tells me about enough times. No knock to them at all, I just don't want to be one of those blogs that posts their stuff NOW because everyone else is. Check out the video and let me know how you feel about it.
Let's keep it a lil sexy for a minute. Ya'll know how I feel about Iggy so when she drops a video I'll at least pay attention just for that. Don't get me wrong she be out there spittin', BUT I appreciate watching her do so even more. Hi Iggy...
When it comes to music from Rochelle Jordan, it is ALWAYS welcome here. I've missed some free music she gave out to fans but in case you missed it let's recap shall we? Rappers rap over R&B all the damn time, so ROJO flips it and does some R&B over rap beats. But when you think of Drake beats sometimes you never know if they're really rap beats [I'm kidding, kinda, but u get it]. Anyways hit the jump to listen.
It's been a minute since I've posted some stuff from Blu or Exile, so with a video being dropped by them recently it just feels right to post this. Enjoy.
