Video: N.O.R.E. – Grimey (Live @ BB Kings, NYC)

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

After the jump, an unreleased video for N.O.R.E. ft. Ja Rule – Live My Life:

Still not sure why Def Jam didn’t release this jump-off. I think Ja was on too many records at that time. N.O. had it poppin’ in Miami!! The real gam here- check out N.O. take the gallon of Henny to the head (pause).

Video: Eminem Talks To Sway Backstage At MTV Movie Awards Rehearsal

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

via MTV:

Eminem had a top-secret, closed-door rehearsal at the Gibson Amphitheatre late Saturday night for Sunday’s show, one of his first live-TV performances in years, and MTV News’ Sway caught up with the Detroit MC on his way in to the theater to talk about his recent success and what has surprised him lately.

“I don’t know if anything’s really surprised me,” he said. “More so, I’m happy about the response the record is getting. I’m glad people have caught on to the concept.”

After his bumpy road with substance abuse, Em has some less harmful ways to get pumped up for a performance. “Lots of alcohol and lots of prescription medications used to be the ingredients,” he told MTV News. “But now, it’s Diet Coke and Red Bull.”

Airs tonight, live @ 9pm EST.

Video of Sneakerpimps Miami 2009 with The Clipse performing, The Cool Kids and a little tour of the event.

UPDATE:

Mickey Munday Is A Fan Of The Clipse

Could it be all the dope boy stories the 2 may have in common? Or maybe Munday just likes sneakers. Yes, the origianl Cocaine Cowboy was in attendance at Sneakerpimps Miami 2009. The Clipse run thru a few classic joints as Munday looks in awe.
