Ginuwine "Last Chance"

First question:  Is he wearing the Diet Butcher Slim Skins?!?!    

"If I only got one shot to win you, then call me Jordan fourth quarter in '92."  Damn!  Killin' it Ginuwine.

Ginuwine:  The New OG Chris Brown?  Clearly.

Tommy Sparks "She's Got Me Dancing"

Head over to Central Booking to leave some love for the man behind the tables!!!

Pac Div "Shut Up"

This might be one of my favorite Pac Div leaks to date... SHITDAMN when can I get these guys to come NY for an interview?  Zink needs their flavor... 

Electrik Red "So Good"

This song isn't the slapperest of all time, but something about this video has me hooked.  Apparently this is the Dream's protegee group (come on Dream, you're not Diddy yet).  They are all so cute but then hot, love the colors and I want ALL those 'fits.  Also, this line:  "Got me in the kitchen cookin' for you like my first name's Betty."  Really though??

Love at first sight: BUTCHDIVA

Umm...  I am so in love. Check out the incredible designer/stylist/woman Butch Diva and get some!  PS, her comment re: the JT and Ciara video is priceless... check it out.

Lanvin "sneaker bag"

How chic/dope is this dope Lanvin tote?!?  Yes PLEASE.  (via selecticism)

'70s British PSAs

I found a bunch of these short clips, but these were some highlights.  Prettayyyy funny.

Ciara and Justin Timberlake "Love Sex Magic"

HAVE YOU SEEN THIS?!?  THIS IS REAL.  Obviously replacing "Diva" on the sex(y) video rotation...  ok not replacing but definitely getting in there.

'Nuff said.

Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs

Umm... did you know this existed?  The part that really got me was the pancake at the end, with the buttah and the syrup.  That. Just. Happened.  PS I will be seeing this and forcing you to come with me (You, ninnernet. You.).

Charles Hamilton "Loser"

CUTIE.  Check his LP The Pink Lava Lamp, gotta get my hands on this one...

U-N-I with Ro Blvd "My Life"

March 31st can't come soon enough.  Here is another peek into what you're getting from "A Love Supreme."  How can I get Zink to be a little more hip hop and give me an excuse to know these cats?

Wellll St Patricks day.  A holiday I don't usually celebrate.  This year was a welcome exception, there was BIG fun and reunions, but I mean can someone please get me the caffeine IV drip?  Where you at?

Oatmeal, peanut butter, beans and rice: STICKS TO YOUR RIBS AT NIGHT

An EXCELLENT JimmyJam via the Hood Internet, I'm LOVING it, great summertime wok'n'roll joint that has taken over my repeat:

Really awesome distraction

This was a great use of my time at work today.  Click HERE and ENJOY!  (Darushimo, you might like this one particularly)

(via undftd)


Fabolous featuring The Dream "Throw it in the Bag"

I've been posting some poppyass jams lately, but I think it's cause I'm trying to prep some kind of spring/summer 09 goof/roll mix.  And as they so astutely put it on OS, The Dream is MURKING everything he touches as of late.  This is no exception.

SUNNY DAY UGNN!!!  Shout out to Zinkster Maria B, Philly in 09!

Roots Picnic in Philly

I need a vacay.  and I've never been to Philly (shame, I know).  Anyone wanna go to this?

More Amber Rose...

I can't get over this human.  Is she real?  Listen to this radio interview with her, pretty absurd.  Where did Kanye FIND her?!?

Maybe he found her in this LUDACRIS VIDEO?!?!  (PS check out CB's dope as moves... and remember when you didn't have to feel guilty for loving him... sigh)

Or maybe he found her when she still had hair in this Young Jeezy video?!?!  Ok I'll give it a rest for today...

La Roux "In for the Kill" (Skream remix)


So a different sound for yous today.  Found this and can't take it off repeat... give a whirl and let the beat drop.

Pacific Division feat Dom Kennedy and Mykel "On/Off Switch"

New Pacific Division track for you!  and I had to throw in the "Paper" video 'cause its one of my favorite "f*** a BZ" cuts, and the one shot video deserves major props.  I may have more for you on Monday, stay tuned...

Weekend loosies

I mean, everyone has done this track, but I love Mos and I love his version.  Stay tuned for his next album Ecstatic!

I gotta say, I was impressed with this one.  Super slick beat... but Cass was in Step Up 2 the Streets so I'll always have a special place in my heart for her.  She and Did look goooood.

KiD CuDi "Switchin Lanes"  
Quick before they take it down!  More good things from KC...

(all thank you OS)

Nike Terminator QS pack

Umm... okay, can I have these now?  Obviously.  DUH.  I have one million things that I need these for.

A Better Roni Readers' Poll: AMBER ROSE: yay or nay?

Ok so chances are, you've seen this beez already.  But if not, let me introduce you to Kanye's new arm candy, Amber Rose.  

I'm on the fence!  I think I love her though...  I think if I were Kanye's bz I'd wear wildout shit too.  Also... is she racially ambiguous or am I being inapprop?


Fanny pack attack

These are juicy joints from Visvim, I would ROCK these, esp. when it gets to be a sweltery BK summer.  Yess.   (via highsnob)

The Dream (2 vids)

The Dream "Rockin' That Shit" remix featuring Juelz Santana, Fabolous, Rick Ross and Ludacris.

Great video... I love how un-picky rappers have become when it comes to video girls... that bz dancing behind Ricky Ross looks so goddamn ridiculous, like mayyyybe she is listening to a different song?

Juelz Santana is so bomb!  Dimples?  Guh, melting my heart.

and anotha one...

The Dream featuring Mariah Carey "My Love"

Mariah... (*heavy sigh*) I love her Melody Ehsani earrings though, get some like 'em at Karmaloop.

and I would be lying if I said I didn't want my hair to look like that every every day.   But why did her next door neighbor gift her the tiniest baby dog?  Too soon!
