Lenny Kravitz & Justice "Let Love Rule" VIDEO

This video is suuuuper clever and made me laugh and I liked the song too. Lenny, where you at??

Chromeo "Night by Night" (Skream Remix)

I wasn't too hyped on this song when it came out, but the Skream remix kicked it up a notch. Oh Skream, you do it. via

Soulico & Rye Rye "Exotic on the Speaker"

Rye Rye is pregnant! Which is old news but I didn't know so.

This is a track from 4 DJs from Tel Aviv called Soulico, so far I'm liking it. They're heading to NYC soon if anyone is trying to hear more...

Ellen and T-Pain on Auto Tune

Ok lets be real, Ellen is hott and hilarious. This video is just what the world needs. Maybe not hip-hop, but definitely the world.

Young Money "Bed Rock" featuring Lloyd

More Young Money! Enjoy.

"Bed Rock" featuring Lloyd or (another link)

***edit*** Just got around to listening to this, and it is pretty much the exact same song with Lloyd instead of Omarion, different chorus but thass it. Still I like 'em both.

Club Slappies 2x

Loving both these dumdums p hard right now... part of me thinks if you hate T-Pain, you probably hate something inside yourself.

T-Pain "Take Your Shirt Off" or (another link)

Juelz always kills me with those damn dimples... and Chris, well he is only human right? Polow is blowing up all oererrywurr.

Juelz Santana featuring Chris Brown "Back to the Crib" or (another link)

Drake featuring Lil Wayne, Kanye, Eminem "Forever" VIDEO

So I guess this song is going to be on the "More than a Game" documentary soundtrack, but video is pretty tight actually! Hoops are always a good feature, the only beef I have is why do all the rappers look so SPAZZY?! They're all doing weird like quasi-robot moves, or is that just me?

try this link for the song DL, I heard enuf of it on Hartford's #1 for hiphop and RnB that I'm a little "Forever"-ed out...

Young Money "Girl You Know" featuring Omarion

New music from Young Money!

I'm feeling it, anything with Nicki is good to me though... Drake dropping more Ricky Bobby references... check it out and drop some knowledge.

Young Money "Girl You Know" featuring Omarion

A couple for you

The Roni has fallen, I'm sorry kids.

But here is a new one from Mariah, p good

Mariah Carey "Ribbon"

Playing catch-up: Beyonce, Gucci Mane, Mario

Once again the Roni has been falling off so here are some jams to get you through your week. "Break Up" is one of my favorite songs on the radio right now, glad to see Nicki Minaj had a hand in this version.

Twista "Wetter" VIDEO

Another joint I can't stop listening to, amazing how much it sounds like all his older stuff. Love his flow.

I mean... this is long overdue. I try and stay up with all the new dance crazes, this one seems to be something we were already doing in high school though?!? (someone wanna back me up?)

Ghostface featuring Raheem DeVaughn "Baby"

It's about time I did something a little bit off the Top 40 Tip... travels are keeping me from the Roni, internet connections are seriously lacking. Like this one though! I'll always be a sucker for Ghost.

Slaughterhouse "The One"

Oooookkayyyy! Slaughterhouse has assembled a nice lil crew here: Royce Da 5'9", Crooked I, Joe Budden and Joell Ortiz.

The video is like a realer version of The Hangover. Sort of?

Beyonce "Sweet Dream" VIDEO

P good!

"Diva" still takes the cake but there are some good moves on this one too.

Wednesday, July 8, 2009

Omarion "What Do You Say"

^^^ Sweet waves! Love this guy... lets not forget "Ice Box" (see below). His moves are excellent.

Omarion "What Do You Say"

Chris Brown "Shine For Me"

Say what you will... I still love Chris Brown cutz. This is a sweet one. "You're a diamond in the rough" reminds me of Aladdin and how I had no clue what that meant until I was basically an adult. (oops).

Trey Songz - Anticipation (Mixtape)

Seems like everyone I've talked to lately has been mourning the lack of good R&B and slowjam music lately. I found this today and since I've been feeling most of Trey's stuff lately thought I'd give it a try. See what you think...

Jamie Foxx featuring Drake, The-Dream and Kanye "Digital Girl"

Pretty addicting track right here...

But we all know he owes a lil bit to this jam:

Bow Wow featuring JD "Always Stuntin"

This track isn't earth shattering, but for some reason I think its kind of funny that Bow Wow and JD are still teaming up...

Nicole Wray "I Like It"

Nicole Wray offers her bid for (comeback) new hot beezie, and it is a prettay good effort! This is a sweet track that is great for summer (read: the sample) and will go on a lot of BBQ playlists. Not an A+ but check it out anyway.

Nicole Wray "I Like It"

Clipse featuring Pharrell "I'm Good"

Here is something to look forward to, but why couldn't they have dropped the album earlier? So good for summer windows down bumping.

Clipse featuring Pharrell "I'm Good"

I'm pretty sure the track cuts off but at least here is a sneak preview of the first single. via os.

New Boyz "You're A Jerk" VIDEO

Not news but still worth posting, both for the jamz and the movez.

Jerkin' is so much harder than it looks, trust me. I tried doing it on the west side hghwy in DKNY sneaker heels and nearly got arrested. True story.

Amerie "Why R U" VIDEO

I give Amerie a lot of love but it is about time we had a new hot beezie, Beyonce really fell off with "Halo" and Rihanna obvi has some major shit going on in her private life.  Amerie get back in the spotlight.

A Better Roni's Goody Bag

I know I've been slacking on the Roni lately and I'm feelin pretty bad about it.  So here are some make up tracks.

Just know that even though the blog is fallin' off, the real Roni goes big.

The much anticipated hater joint.

I'm loving all things Fabolous right now, and Jay-Z kills the feat spot too.

This is a sexy jam, feelin on it major.

Even Mary J is on the autotune tip but even though she isn't my most fav of all time, I like this one plenty.

I'm a couple days late on this one but had to post. This video is SUPER fresh.

I'm lovin' this Swagger tank. This color can only be called "blogger" orange.

Juelz, the cutest rapper in the game.

Likin' this one.

Lady Gaga is the most over-hyped person maybe ever. She looks like a tranny and her voice sux.

WHY? "A Sky for Shoeing Horses Under" VIDEO

Jeremih "Rain Drops"

CLEARLY Jeremih (of "Birthday Sex" fame) heard my plea for some R&B smoothies... I'm putting "Raindrops" on repeat until I put on a new song. TRUE FACT!

Jeremih "Rain Drops"

U-N-I "Land of the Kings"

I like U-N-I a lot, and I don't know if any of you readerz do or not but this is a winning track. Cross over appeal? Matt and Kim fans? You decide.

(I think I'm going to start using sharebee linkx 'cause they seem to die slower than straight zshare)

I really want to wear these in the Hamptons this summer with a swimsuit and sunnies cruising in the minicooper... yes? So good.

The Melody Ehsani Asjai heels. These are the kind of shoes you eat ramen for a whole month to buy... My heart is all aflutter. Paired with a mini dress and my cutoff white leather motorcycle jacket? Umm hello?!? I just purchased something truly special from Melody's website, can't wait to throw it up on the Roni.

These Alejandro Ingelmo sandals are coming in a close second for most coveted shoes right now. I'm probably too tall to wear either but I'm pretty deficient when it comes to the female height complex so wtf. Both spotted at hs

Loosies for the Weekend

The Roni has been falling off lately... bummer.

Ok so I dug up some goodies though, a smorgasbord of diggitydopecutz.

Ok so this song is simultaneously ANNOYING AS SHIT and an UNDENIABLE SLAPPER.  "No wifin' in the club, gimme 20 dollars."  What??

WINNER.  Basically you just have to accept Drake at this point, he isn't going anywhere.  This is a jam.  

It was only a matter of time before T.I. put this out.  Normally I think of using Mary J as a featured crooner is a total cop out, but she didn't ruin this one for me at all.  In fact, I like it!

Guys I just don't know what to do about this one...  I have a feeling there are going to be some ridiculously dope remixes, but who is this UK jokester that roped Kanye into doing a feature where he says "chaunce" instead of "chance" and sings at the top of his lungs...  ?? Maybe I'm just behind the times.

This one is NOT hip hop but I like it and I think it will be in everyone's ears sooner or later but probably sooner.  

I hope you like one or some or all of these.

Ghostface featuring Ron Brownz "She's A Killer"

This has been floating around for a few days now and I slept on it (literally) but DAMN, everybody bloggin' it neglected to say WHAT A SLAPPER it is! Dyamn. This is like a hair-straightening-makeup-applying-pre-party JIMMY.


Ghostface featuring Ron Brownz "She's A Killer"

Lloyd "I Don't Wanna Be That"

I don't usually post this kind of thing... but I'm wondering if it isn't time for a really winning R&B slowjam album... and I love Lloyd if we're gonna be perfectly honest.

Lloyd "I Don't Wanna Be That"

Amerie "Why R U"

I don't know if you remember "1 Thing" from a couple years back but it was a major jam. Here is a new one off her album coming out in August. Good stuff!

Amerie "Why R U"

and here is the vid for "1 Thing" to jog your memory...

How good does Eve look in this video? I still bump this one on the reg...
