Fresh Cut: Jay-Z feat Chris Martin – Most Kingz (DJ Green Lantern Mix)

leave a comment »

Always a breath of fresh air, even if it’s old. via Jay did both verses from this Flex’s show in October of 2006. “Most Kings” was the Jean-Michel Basquiat inspired song that was set to be on Kingdom Come, but that never saw the light of day.  Around that time, DJ Green Lantern was Jay’s DJ and he even released “Corporate Takeover” on one of his mixtape (which was the other verse from that legendary Funkmaster Flex freestyle.) These bars mostly ended up on Jay’s “Lost” remix for Coldplay.

it’s tough being Bobby Brown, cuz to be Bobby then, you have to be Bobby now

I remember waking up early on a Saturday morning a few weeks ago and reading ‘Ye and JB trading tweets back and forth. Then ‘Ye teased us with the crazy that he was going to remix Runaway Love and throw the Chef on it. Well, no longer a crazy idea, here it is. Enjoy!

Revealed: How Steve Jobs Turns Customers into Fanatics

btw, I never saw this ad … if I had, I would have converted much sooner … via Brito

I just saw this article via a friend’s tweet and it caught my eye since I converted over to Apple a few years ago. The article talks about an interesting psychological experiment that was conducted over 40 years ago which could be Jobs’ key to his fan base. Just picture compare people, not products. Think about it.

with one comment

The U.S. Open is on it’s way, sweeeet! I’ve always wanted to attend the NYC classic and one of the cool aspects is the new fashion put on display by the players. I spotted this over Check out more pics after the jump.

Following up on the Roland Garros pack from earlier in the year, Nike created two new sets of gear for premier stars Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal. Each player receives a day and night set of apparel and well as matching footwear, reminiscent of those throwback days of the 90s. Be sure to catch the US Open action as the tournament kicks off on August 30th, 2010.
