UGC Thursday Throwback - "Jodeci" [video]


Featured Artist of the week -RnB Neo Soul Singer LATHUN [Videos Inside]

Coming to us straight from Detroit, Lathun Grady has got to be one of the most slept on artists during the last decade. Although this young man was signed to Motown, I would say he's definitely still an underground artist. I mean, yeah he was signed to Motown, and he got his shine, but there wasn't enough light for anybody to really see anything.

I remember the first time I heard him sing....It was the summer of 2001. I was on TV hosting The Funkshop, my music video show and my video provider, sent me a video called Fortunate and asked me to add it in my rotation. It was the title track off Lathun's then new album "Fortunate". I listened to the song with it's Soothing had a kind of Latin Caribbean feel to it, with a dash of Hip Hop sprinkles. The lyrics were quite poetic and made me think of a time when I was in love and felt "Fortunate" because of it. You know there's no feeling in the world like one of being in love! I have to admit, I really liked the song, and the video was real cute too.....cute and simple. Okay so I was impressed enough to pay attention to this guy, but when I found out that he also wrote and produced MOST of the songs on his album I was wholly impressed. After that I was hooked, and I just knew for sure that this brother was going places. I added his video to The Funkshop Rotation and even though the label gave me his new CD, I still went out and bought one just to support the artist. Here's his song Fortunate. You'll probably remember it when you hear it. Listen to it, then I'll come back and tell you more about Lathun, with his pretty eyed self....Wooo!

Eminem f/Royce Da 5'9 - "Im On Everything" [Dirty]

Ray J F/Rico Love - Bananas

I don't know how many of ya'll actually LIKE Ray J, he does have to be somewhat of an acquired taste, I understand. But every once in a while he hits the nail on the head and he ends up belting out some pretty good material. Now to be honest I don't think I've fell out over anything he's released since "Formal Invite" and THAT was my shizz! Weeeelllll...I think his new track "Bananas" is on the same level. I like crazy knockin' and bumpin beats and "Bananas" bumps. You can check it out for yourself though, different people like different things. Click the play button below and let me know what's good......or not. LOL

New Flyer For Gospel Music

[UGC Featured Artist Of The Week] - Marvin Sapp He Has His Hands On You [Video]

It's been a long week, and we've ALL been through a lot of different things...and though we may have sometimes felt like we were going through it alone, this song reminds us that we are NEVER alone. Even when we throw up our hands and we're ready to give up, God still has his hands on us. When things look darkest and we don't think we'll make it, we always do. Remember that God ALWAYS takes care of what he holds in his hands so if he's holding you then why are you worrying? Like the song says, "Lift your hands up high, for he will provide....just know he has his hands on you."

Kanye's "Monster" Video Is Here... [Video Inside]

I don't know if I can say it was worth the wait, but Kanye's official video for MONSTER has finally been released. Sticking to Kanye's dark and eerie forte the video makes Michael Jackson's "Thriller" look like a walk in the park. Like everything visual Kanye has given us, the video can certainly be considered a bit over the top and is not suitable for the viewing of young children, the weak at heart, pregnant women, or the elderly. It even comes equipped with it's own disclaimer that reads:  "The following content is in no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any groups of people. It is an art piece and it shall be taken as such."

To give you a taste of what you're about to see, in the picture above you see the contriversial West setting up a threesome with two dead girls...yes I said DEAD girls. And speaking of Minaj....
