Christian Rich: The Decadence + Pharrell Video Drop [Download]

This artwork has been seen here before, with the leak of Christian Rich's Malicious (feat. Shanell of Young Money), due to their late release of their mixtape The Decadence, which released yesterday on June 7th. They've hooked up with Clinton Sparks, Mick Boogie, Billionaire Boys Club and Ice Cream to drop this tape. The two brothers, Kehinde and Taiwo Hassan, are bringing a sound that's almost unheard of. With recording in Chicago, New York, Los Angeles, Miami and the Neptunes' Hovercraft studio in Virgina, the project we've all been waiting for, is now complete. The mixtape has a hell of a featured artist list including: Pusha T (of the Clipse), Shanell (of Young Money), Y-O (of U-N-I), Ashlie Luckett, GLC - offering remixes from Bjorn (from Peter Bjorn and John), DJ Benzi and DJ Dstar, Clinton Sparks and more! The mixtape starts off with an intro from Pharrell and included in the zip file is a video drop from him.

Below and to the right is the tracklisting (click to enlarge).

Apple Introduces the iPhone 4

The iPhone 4 is set to release on June 24th (with pre-ordering that begins on June 15th), it is offered in Black and White with 16GB at $199 and 32GB at $299. It offers two cameras, one in the front for FaceTime (WiFi video calling). FaceTime has been set to be used only over WiFi at this time, but I almost absolutely sure that the iPhone will later allow video calling to take place without the use of WiFi (for a small fee of course). Imagine being able to see and talk to your wife and children's face when you're miles away? This is what we've all been waiting for. The backside of the iPhone has a 5 mega-pixel camera with video recording that offers HD recording and will be able to be editing in iMovie, all on the device. The iPhone has been a revolutionary phone since 2007, no questions about that. This will be the first phone to launch in the US that overs video calling.

Christian Rich: Hello Virgin

The Chicago duo Christian Rich are set to release a their new mixtape The Decadence on May 31st, the visuals to their song Hello Virgin is mind blowing. Take a peek.

If you don't see the art in this, you're blind. I haven't seen a music video this good in ages. I'm young, so that doesn't say much, but this is greatness nonetheless. The song says a lot, a great way to pump up the audience for the release of their new mixtape. Couldn't leave you without a download, so here it is. . .

Time Off

To some, blogging is like a full-time job. So I took some time off. Shit - even to me that's what it seems like, a full-time job. I haven't had much time to blog lately with my studies, but don't worry - I'll be back around. This morning I took my Europe to 1600 final, I won't post my strategy for taking the test because you never know who's watching, but, "I done did good." Look forward to hundreds of posts this summer, I should have some great reads and great visuals. I'll be letting you guys further into my mind after this week. Stay tuned.

Rihanna x KAWS

So, I stumbled across this randomly - honestly, this has to be one of the dopest works of art I've seen in a very long time. But let me note, this is strictly art - not an offical collaboration of any kind. This is amazing, and no, I'm not just saying that because I'm madly in love with Rihanna or anything, but simply because it shows her in a rude yet angelic way. Very classic, the KAWS top it off. Just, beautiful.

P.S. Say Hello to the new background on my MacBook Pro. :)
