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!

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)

Crooks & Castles "Valet" Boardshorts

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.

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...

Supreme SS 09 Sunnies

Great job Supreme, these are hot. Get them in store (Lafayette and Prince, NYC) or online at supremenewyork starting Thursday. via hs

SNL: Ciara and Justin "Love Sex Magic"

I'm posting this because I love Ciara's moves (esp at the end) but mostly because I REALLY want those tights.

Wyclef featuring Shakira "The Border"

Honestly, Shakira has the most annoying voice in the world. LITERALLY IN THE WORLD. But thanks to some quality Timbaland production, this is still a slapper. Get it before its gone...

J-Hood featuring Babs "Play My Song"

Shonie featuring Fabolous "I Can't Let Go"

I like her voice, it reminds me of Monica from her primo days of "The Boy is Mine," but if you mixed it WITH Brandy. 'Cause sometimes Monica's voice was prettay annoying.

Jabari featuring Pusha-T and Nicki Minaj "Dopeman"

Direct rip from os, but so far I like this jam (I mean, Pusha T and Nicki Minaj are golden to me so...). I say so far because our internet is SO slow today its really killing me. I'm a lil spoiled I guess. Ok a lot.

Page featuring Drake "I'm Still Fly"

UGNNN BUMP THIS IN YOUR STATIONWAGONS! If you had told me I would be taking this kid seriously in any way other than a dramatic and tragically paralyzed teen on Degrassi The Next Gen, I would have laughed:

Kardinal Offishall featuring Akon "Teaser"

I haven't thrown anything Konvict up here in a minute, but Kardi is one of my favorites, "Not 4 Sale" was probably in my top three favorite releases from 2008 though for some reason it got NO play. This track wasn't on the album, just scoped it on OS, hope you like it!

Jadakiss "Hangover"

OK so I realize I'm a little OD on the Roni today but I just saw this and had to share... If the chorus ("I've got a hangover!") wasn't enough, sampling "Can You Feel The Love Tonight" from yes, The Lion King, really tops it.

Dizzee Rascal & Armand Van Helden

Uhuh... eeeyup.

Monday Morning Loosies

A couple more goodies from Cam'ron, I'm loving "Silky" right now, definitely give this one a listen. "Lets Talk About" must be hot off the press, swine flu references and all, VERY dope beat, + Jada?? Winner.

Cam'ron "Silky (No Homo)"

Cam'ron featuring Jadakiss "Lets Talk About"

This is a fun one, I'm kind of a sucker for Sean Kingston (except "Beautiful Girls," that was just never gonna fly...) and Young Chris is about 5 minutes from the tippy, if you ask me.

Young Chris featuring Sean Kingston "My Swag"

and last but not least (or maybe least, actually) here is a bit of new Cool Kids, their mixtape should be up today so I'll throw it up when I come across it...

Cool Kids "Champions"

A Better Roni, now part of your complete breakfast.

Busta Rhymes ft. Lil Wayne and Jadakiss "Respect My Conglomerate"

This is the kind of music video that we've been missing. It's a veritable who's who of hip hop of the moment, and the British beezie with the accent is hot.

Friday = Ladies' night on A Better Roni

Psshh where has this song been my whole life?? It is appropriate for my sunny mood on this not sunny day. I think both the gals AND the guys will like this one, mmhmm.

zshare: Beyonce featuring Kanye "Ego" (Remix)

Ohh Ciara. Your new album is clearly inferior to your last one, but I will always love you. And this song is aight, but girl you know you don't need to fall victim to the autotune craze, come on!
