Found this “unofficial video” the other day and really like it:

If you recognize the style of the video, it might be because it’s directed by the same guy with a weird name who directed another one of Cudi’s videos: Jason Goldwatch. That video, which was for the mixtape-jam “Cudderisback,” happens to be one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a long time, so I’ve included that below as well:
F yeah…and no autotune, just straight rapping. It’s enough to make Kid Cudi dance on tables, so it must be hot. This is (presumably) the first single off of his upcoming album “Good Ass Job”, and it is called “Power” and features Dwele. Enjoy the first samplings of what will eventually be the album of the year, bitches:
UPDATE #2 (6/2):
Kanye has released the “mastered & mixed” version of the song on his new blog, so I’ve updated the links to reflect this better/doper version and also added the picture which now adorns the new title page of his blog to the top of this post:

Sorry, but I felt compelled to showcase a couple of choice lines from the song after listening to it another 8,000 times. So, firstly, and most impressively (in my mind) Ye’ says:
“You short-minded n****s’ thoughts is Napoleon/ My furs is Mongolian, my ice brought the goalies in.”
And right before that previous line, he spits:
“Fuck SNL and the whole cast/ Tell ‘em Yeezy said they can kiss my whole ass.”
Now there has been a bit of confusion about this latter line; specifically, people are wondering what exactly is the source of Ye’s beef with SNL. My guess was that the show probably made a bunch of skits shitting on Kanye about that whole Taylor Swift episode – you know, when he rightfully stole her award onstage or whatever?
Rather than listening to my take on the line, however, I’d suggest clicking over to Vulture, where they’ve (already) posted an article entitled Why is Kanye Mad at SNL?, an analysis dedicated to breaking down and unlocking the secret behind the aforementioned lyric. And that, my friends, is why I love that blog.
And then when you’re done doing all that, go listen to the song again.
According to Drake’s blog, OCTOBER’S VERY OWN, the second single off “Thank Me Later” will be released today, entitled “Find Your Love” and produced by none other than Kanye West. I’m kind of excited.
Hip-Hop group The Roots support their new single entitled “How I Got Over” with a music video directed by BBGUN. The video sees a man on a wheelchair wandering through the street of Brooklyn and witnessing the seedy side of the town’s urban life.
“How I Got Over” is the title track from the band’s upcoming studio album called “How I Got Over”. The song was debuted live on TV for the first time during an episode of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” back in June.
The Roots’ ninth studio album, “How I Got Over” itself is slated to be released across United States on October 20. It reportedly contains materials which have some political influences, like the presidencies of George W. Bush and Barack Obama.

Wow, I’m the happiest person ever:
Now the basketball world can finally see the footage: NBA MVP LeBron James getting dunked on by a college player.
On Wednesday, TMZ.com and ebaumnation.com released different versions of the much-anticipated video of Xavier’s Jordan Crawford dunking on James last month at Nike’s LeBron James Skills Academy at the University of Akron. The TMZ footage, presumably shot via a cell phone and looking about as steady as the San Andreas Fault, shows Crawford dunking over James in the middle of a pickup game. The footage from ebaumnation.com (above), which is higher quality and includes better audio, was shot from the side of the court where the dunk took place and shows Crawford’s two-handed jam at the 35-second mark.
As had been previously reported, Nike, which ran the James camp, confiscated the footage of two videographers working the camp because they claimed the videotaping of after-hours pickup games was not allowed. One of the videographers, Ryan Miller, spoke with SI.com on Wednesday and confirmed that it was indeed the dunk, but not the footage he shot. “I am 99.9 percent sure that is the actual dunk,” said Miller, a 22-year-old recent Syracuse University graduate. “I was obviously in a different position on the floor but it was the same reaction from the crowd, same everything. The footage they had before was also footage from that same pickup game. So that’s the dunk. Finally.”
So, behold the “Greatest Video of All Time” (which really could be called the “most overrated” video of all time…but I’m still gonna say he got shat on) featuring my favorite basketball player/human of the moment, Jordan Crawford:
Here is my boy Jordan Crawford talking about dunking on LeBron Douche:
Finally, here is a link to TMZ’s footage of the dunk, which, supposedly, is the most extensive; please watch repeatedly. Also, LeBron James sucks ass. Lots of ass.
UPDATE: Another angle of the dunk, this one in “high quality:”
Hot video, hot beat, hot song…and it’s becoming pretty clear that “Till the Casket Drops” is gonna be a hot album, the first video/single from which follows:
Impressive how Kanye is able to really hold his own with them.
