ARTIST OF THE WEEK: BIG SEAN.

Big Sean is Finally Famous and he sure deserves it. If you’ve never heard of him he’s basically a cross between Fabolous & Lil Duval, but his sound is one of a kind and he has big names like Drake using his flow (but at least he gave him credit).

The Def Jam signed artist was born in Santa Monica, but raised in Detroit & is possibly the most talented rapper to come out of the Michigan area since Eminem. Sean was discovered  a few years ago by Kanye West at a local Detroit radio station where he would rhyme weekly to get exposure. After that, Kanye played the role of his mentor for a while until 2007 when personally called up Sean and had him sign with G.O.O.D. music.

He’s collaborated with artists like Mike Posner, Chiddy Bang, Kanye West, Kid Cudi, and now most recently, Chris Brown.

Big Sean’s debut album Finally Famous Volume 3 is officially being released June 21st so be sure to check it out!

Listen to the remix Sean did of one of my favorites, Adele’s ‘Hometown Glory’ & then check out one of his originals, ‘Supa Dupa Lemonade’.

BTW, someone needs to make a ‘Hometown’ about Miami..anyone? ;)

ARTIST OF THE WEEK: VERS’

It’s been a while since I’ve done an artist of the week post but I saw this kid today and could not let the chance pass me by to publicly announce that I predict him to be one of the next big things to come out of Miami.

He’s a 17-year-old clean-cut kid from Miami & goes by the name of Vers’ (pronounced verses). The kid is unbelievable & he’s already an internet sensation earning 20 YouTube honors –I didn’t even know YouTube had awards & even Perez Hilton has been tweeting about him. As part of the Maybach Music Latino movement he seems to be the youngest unsigned artist of the group.

His first live performance was in 2010 where he headlined for 2 Live Crew & this year his first mixtape ‘WhoIsVers’ is set to be released.

Check out the videos below where he freestyles imitating Lil Wayne, Drake, Ludacris, & Eminem & also raps alongside T Pain The kid is sick & a definite cutie! Spread the word! What do YOU think??

Love The Way You Lie Video Premiere.

For all of you masochist out there, check out the brand new video for ‘Love The Way You Lie’ by Eminem featuring Rihanna. The video stars Megan Fox & Dominic Monaghan.

Rihanna recently told Access Hollywood in an interview that the video really hits home for her being that she’s experienced being in an abusive relationship before. Eminem & Rihanna have both been pubic about their own dysfunctional relationships and so she says, “It just was authentic. It was real. It was believable for us to do a record like that, but it was also something that needed to be done, and the way he did it was so clever”.

I love it! Check it out & let me know what YOU think!

Eminem Guest Stars on Entourage.

That’s right! The man with the #1 selling album topping all the charts will soon be appearing on everyone’s (and by everyone I mean me) favorite show.

How did it happen? According to reports Adrian Grenier was interviewing him for a documentary they’re making & Eminem expressed to him how much he liked the show. Adrian asked him if he wanted to be on it & the rest is history!

The episode with Eminem was shot earlier this week & will soon go into production so there’s no word yet as to when it’ll air, but stay tuned,  “It’s very interesting. You have no idea”, says Grenier.

Apparently Eminem’s character gets into an altercation with Vince Chase.

Can’t wait!
