Bout God Damn Time! DJ Khaled ft. Everybody as Usual-OUT HERE GRINDIN (Music Video)

24 07 2008

How many versions of this song are out?  3?  And on each version Boosie has the hardest verse.  There was a rumor that Plies wasn’t going to be on the song because he was charging Khaled and didn’t show up to the first shooting of the video.  Well, the differences have been resolved and he’s in this video.  Wayne who is on one version, isn’t on this version.  AND THATS A GOOD LOOK!!!!  Khaled is trying to show he can sell a single, album and his movement without using Wayne’s selling power.  Plus, Wayne is over saturated right now.  He has his own double platinum album out, plus various collaborations.  The video overall to me is a 6.5/10.  Definitly a downgrade from “We Takin Over”.  It’s the same set up as the other videos.  Khaled posse cut.  I think he needs to push the envelope more on his video selection.  The green screen didn’t work for me.  The best green screen shot in my opinion was OFFICER ROSS.  That was tight, walking the streets with his Undercover Hoos Nigga Unit.  I wonder what their conviction rate is?  For the corniest it is a tie between Boosie running from fire and Plies battling plastic chains in a cell.  Really?!  But, I wish Khaled luck.  He is proving to me that you don’t have to rap to sell units anymore.  So, I’m watching this guy’s moves and putting his best moves into my plan.  Don’t let the way I think ruin the song for you though, check it out above.





DJ Khaled Readies We Global!

26 06 2008

 

I can’t hate on Khaled.  He’s the ring leader of a new movement and he doesn’t do anything but holler on songs.  He does alot of things behind closed doors and he’s today’s music executive.  He’s everywhere, he has his hands on the best music and great relationships with today’s hottest artists.  He has a label deal with Koch and now Def Jam for his label the We The Best Music Group.  He has a new artist, Ace Hood who isn’t that bad.  He’s moving in the right direction.  I like Khaled.  I like what he’s doing.  He’s becoming a force on his own, I can’t knock the man’s hustle nor his passion for the game, I’m takin’ notes.  So here’s the news.

Producer Timbaland took home songwriter of the year last night at the 21st Annual ASCAP Rhythm and Soul Music Awards last night (June 23) in Los Angeles California.

 

The awards, which also paid tribute to legendary group New Edition, took place during an elegant ceremony at the Beverly Hills Hilton. MC Lyte and Johnta Austin hosted the event, where over 600 songwriters and publishers were on hand.

 

Although he was on his honeymoon in Aruba, Timbaland took home top Songwriter of the Year for the third time.

 

The rapper/producer wrote or co-produced four hit songs, including “Ice Box” by Omarion, “Make Me Better” by Fabolous featuring Ne-Yo, “My Love” by Justin Timberlake featuring T.I. and “Until the End of Time” by Justin Timberlake featuring Beyoncé.

“Our roster of songwriters creates the most soulful and influential music in the world, and it’s their talent and passion that has kept us on top for fourteen years,” Platt told AllHipHop.com. “And with all the great music that our songwriters are creating at the moment, I wouldn’t be surprised if they helped us stayed at the top for many years to come.”

 

The highlight of the evening came, as New Edition was honored during with ASCAP’s prestigious Golden Note award, in celebration of the pioneering group’s 25th anniversary.

 

All members were present including Bobby Brown, who delivered a classic acceptance speech to the delight of attendees.
