After his spring-summer 2011 runway show, Alexander Wang hosted a frat party-themed after party.  Tyler, the Creator performed and in true form, here’s how he introduced himself…

If I happen to come in the crowd and just go wild, and you spill your drink on your expensive-ass shirt that’s probably ugly-as-f–k, don’t be mad at me cause I warned you…

The Music Link List – 8/11/2011


Chris Brown - Boy In Detention (Mixtape)

♥♥ Ever since he showed off his rapping skills on the Diplo-produced track “Look at Me Now,” fans have been eager for Chris Brown to get behind the mic again and spit a few bars. MC Breezy definitely delivers with his first official rap release Boy In Detention – The Mixtape. While I could go on and on about how Chris Brown is a surprisingly good rapper, I’d much rather talk about Justin Bieber! That’s right folks!  The Bieber makes his debut rap cameo on the David Banner-produced track “Ladies Love Me.”  With claims of having “swag like Patrick Swayze,”  I can’t help but wonder if Justin is thinking of dropping a mixtape next.  Take a listen to the track below.

Dance-punk band The Rapture graces the flipside.

The Music Link List – 5.25.2011


Kreayshawn

♥♥ Meet Kreayshawn. She’s the latest “young, rich, and flashy” female emcee to take the world by storm. The Oakland-based rapper dropped her video for “Gucci Gucci” last week and has had the internet buzzing with curiousity and anticipation.  So who exactly is this pint sized diva in “one big room full of bad bitches”? Well for starters, we know that she definitely doesn’t rock Gucci, Louie, Fendi or Prada. Basic bitches wear that shit, so she doesn’t even bother.  I personally think the  rapper, director, DJ, swag assassin, and under-cat’s style is fresh, unique, and pretty sick!  What do you think of Kreayshawn?
