Great crowd, better music!

Kanye West recently released a 35-minute video called “Runaway” as a preview to his upcoming album, ”My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. ” It’s worth watching and hearing a handful of the G.O.O.D. Friday tracks that are slated to appear on the record.
Girls who burst onto the indie scene last year are back with “Heartbreaker” off the upcoming EP Broken Dreams Club due November 22. Click here to get a free download of “Heartbreaker.”
The wave of hip-hop, electro artists from the UK keeps rising and pumping out chart toppers. First came Dizzee Rascal then Tinchy Stryder and now Tinie Tempah. If you’ve never heard of Tinie Tempah, do yourself a favor and make a point to do so. His debut record, Disc-Overy dropped earlier this month and in London, he is on fire. Just who is Tinie Tempah? He won Best Video at the MOBO Awards last week for “Frisky” featuring Labrinth and his latest single “Miami 2 Ibiza” features Swedish House Mafia. “Invincible” featuring Kelly Rowland should be his next club banger as the rise of Tinie Tempah continues.
The song which has been out for some months now is dope and the video which recently came out is a cameo music machine. If you haven’t seen this yet, take a few minutes and pay close attention to the below and see who you spot.
A good Friday for music lovers. Check out a few of today’s items:
And drum roll……..
Those who know me are well aware of my fascination with Lupe Fiasco and what can I say, I think the dude is one heck of a musician. Every time I have seen him in concert (three times) it has been a great performance that has you wanting more. Well as we await the drop of Lasers, his third album (March 11, 2011 – ugh, thanks Atlantic Records) there is new life as his self released single “I’m Beamin” was remixed by his “new” crew, All City Chess Club. All City Chess Club you ask? How does this sound: Lupe, Pharrell Williams, B.o.B., The Cool Kids, Asher Roth, Wale, Diggy (as in Rev. Run’s son), J.Cole, Charles Hamilton and Blu. Take a listen below.

LCD Soundsystem rocked the house last night in Las Vegas. It was a high energy 90 minute show at the Pearl at Palms with fans getting down and for a Tuesday night you would have thought it was Friday and the last concert on earth.
For me, hearing “Daft Punk is Playing at My House” live was the highlight of the evening. Here are a couple photos from the show.
