C'est la période qui veut ça, nous faisons un bilan de l'année sur tout ce qu'il est possible de classer. Cette fois-ci c'est une sélection de 20 clips étendu sur l'année 2011 qui est mis en avant. Je précise que ce classement n'est pas celui de l'équipe au complet qui a sûrement des penchants musicaux encore différents des miens, et à préciser aussi qu'il e s'agit pas uniquement de la vidéo, mais de l'ensemble musique / vidéo . Bon visionnage ! ______________________________ ____ . [...]
2011 in Review: Best Collab A tough battle in this category, no doubt. The first time I heard Senor Rhyme’s verse on this epic track I think that I actually started sweating. Any song where Wayne’s contribution seems forgettable you should already know is going to be epic. Also, did I mention that Diplo was on production? This all-star squad certainly came to play, plus the video is probably one of the craziest to come out in a while as well. Next……………Best Party Chris Brown feat. Busta Rhymes [...]
Even in an era when rappers rarely share studios with their collaborators, emailing in their contributions instead, the art of the guest verse is alive and well. It's still a point of pride for one rapper to swoop in and steal a track's spotlight away from another. And that sense of friendly competition is still one of the things that makes rap so fun to talk about; we rarely agree on who won what. So here's one man's opinion on 20112s 10 greatest examples of track thievery. Leave your own favorites in the comments section below. Read More...
This list was inspired by the guiding light of Liberace, Billy Martin, Ali, and Mr. Wonderful Paul Orndorff. A Zip file will be arriving in the late morning, so check back here.

It was also overlong, chaotic, unfocused and [...]
Today is Lil Wayne's 29th birthday — yes, this Young Money mogul and super-successful rapper is under 30 years old — and we can think of no better way to celebrate all of Lil Tunechi's accomplishments in his nearly-three-decades on Earth than by choosing 29 different featured appearances made by the MC! (And he'll soon add yet another one to his never-ending list by appearing on the remix to Joe Jonas' "Just In Love" .) Jump below to check out 29 different track cameos made by Wayne over the course of his career, and tell [...]
Some call it the "Oscars for youth," but realistically, the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) feel more like crack for gossipers. Controversy! Chaos! Glam! Anything can happen. It used to be waiting anxiously for Madonna's next "big move," whether it was her flashing some ass or offering some tongue. (Gross? Hardly.) Nowadays, it's more about who's going to screw up, what will be the grand upset, and, admittedly, who's going to be the next "Kanye." Keywords, people: sex and drama. But that's always been the case with the VMAs. Wait, you don't actually think it's a special award? [...]
No matter how many MCs submit music to the masses on the regular, certain skills can separate the masters from the morsels in an instant. One of the more clearly defined of those traits is the ability to recite words with both speed and precision. For a little over two decades, the double-time flow has taken the old school Kurtis Blow rhyming to new heights with added syllabic excellence and is now a clear indicator of who can turn it up a notch and who can’t. In honor of those poets who’ve chosen enriched rhyme-patterns instead of [...]
Vibing this RL Grime a bit more than the original. Definite prospect for next week . Ups to lil Brookah for the heads up. Chris Brown Ft. Busta Rhymes, Lil Wayne - Look At Me Now (RL Grime Remix) Kyle S Filed under: Mp3 Tagged: busta rhymes , chris brown , Lil Wayne , rl grime
Pretty simple this post contains 9 videos that get me hype as fuck. This is for everybody working long hours doing something they don't want and then coming home for the weekend where they get to make the rules. Join Waka Flocka, Rick Ross, Kelly Rowland, Kendrick Lamar, Dom Kennedy and more as they fill your belly with that extra swag you need to excel in whatever you do tonight. Some people are gonna have sex, some people are gonna drink, some of you might even do drugs. Then there's those of you that are going [...]
As soon as you hear her voice, I guarantee you're impressed. Karmin's cover of 'Look At Me Now'. I'd argue this cover is better than the original (which is below). Buy the song below: Look at me now. Look at me now. Oh, I'm getting paper...
Fans Are My Everything / Forgiving All My Enemies? More like Flaccid, Audacious, Marginal Excrement. Graffiti may have housed the party hit "Transform Ya", but otherwise it was a massive trainwreck. Chris Brown was never going to be mistaken for a crooner, but the mismatch of sorrowful lyrics framing Brown as a victim with cold, soulless production just made for bad listening. Between his continued anger problems and his inability to pick decent material to sing, Brown's career seemed on an ever-downward current. But then a pair of funny things...
I tell ya, Chris Brown's pattern of emotional breakdowns makes for some good drama. It's kinda like watching a show about cakes -- I don't really care about the cakes, I just want to see them fall...

This ain't new - don't pipe out and tell me I'm dragging. But the more I obsessively listen to it like a 13 year old fan-club manager, the doper it sounds. The Chris Breezy dick shot scandal #OMG left the gossip bloggers screen grabbing every lunge move in this video. But I'm way too obsessed with the concept of lipsing with Lil Wayne in that electronic goblin mask. In the cage. With Busta rapping hyper speed sweet nuttings through the bars. I don't want this blog sounding hiphop-honeyz fan-fiction so I'm gonna just let you download this response [...]
[There is a video that cannot be displayed in this feed. Visit the blog entry to see the video.] Why? Because Busta (and Wayne) shitted on this muffukka, das why. Nod yo head and ENJOY!
This has been one of my favorite radio singles of the year so far. Great guest features and brilliantly simple production from Diplo & Afrojack. I'll be interested to see if more artists start grabbing producers from the electro and dubstep scenes. At this rate, I say yes.
When we typically write about Chris Brown on Prefix, the posts tend to mention his horrible past and all of the bullshit that ensued after he abused Rihanna. But for the purpose of this write-up, I'm going to try and focus on the singer-rapper's music. His latest album, F.A.M.E. , is due out in less than two weeks and he's just dropped off some visuals for perhaps the most anticipated track off the record. "Look At Me Now," which features bouncy production from Diplo and Afrojack, might stumble a bit at its outset. [...]
