9th Wonder + NBA Elite 2011

9th talks about Scoring EA Sport's NBA Elite 2011 (Previously known as the Live Series). With the 2k series killing things right now this is a good move by the people at EA Sports. Hopefully they can regain some of the prestige they once had years ago.

BET's "Music Matters": J. Cole

J. Cole Performs At The BET 2010 Awards

Here's footage of J at the BET Awards from last night. Don't think I have to say much other than that; the footage speaks for itself. Scratch that, here's the entire previously unreleased second verse. Enjoy.

"Dear Lord, what am I here for?
Is it the girls or the money or is there more?
I know the world 'bout to come to an ending
So before it does let me finish all my sinning
I seen the devil grinning, as if he winning
This is the bottom of the ninth inning, I'm coming back like light skinded  
What a sad sight, looking at my gas like 'Damn man I just threw ten in'
Look, five dollars won't get you what it used to
And look, love don't mean what it used to
And everybody and they momma on Youtube
Is it just me or is this unusual?
Don't wanna lose you, just wanna reach yall
So let me slow down, to the beat yall
Put the remote down, pull your feet yall
One time for the boys holding heat yall
Keep that tucked 'fore somebody get hurt
See me I'd rather cut, catch a body give birth
Now if you was the last man walking on Earth
Turn this up, clap your hands like this was church
Hey, and clap for 'em"

J.Cole: "Who Dat" Video

J. Cole's first video for himself. Historic stuff indeed. The way BB GUN shot the video reminds me of the way they shot "Simba" from J's first mixtape "The Come Up".


According to Cole, the album will be released at latest by October. Can't wait. Dreamville.



To anyone who reads this blog regularly (or at least tries to) my apologies. Since school got out I've been real busy. Thankfully though, God is good and a lot of great things have happened since the last time I updated this page. I've been trying to figure out some things with my music on the production end and I've recently gotten into the studio to start recording material. I plan to start doing that on a regular basis now that I have a bit more free time.

Additionally, I recently met J. Cole, his good friend/manager/DJ/business partner/everything else Ibrahim , and his childhood friend Mike Shaw while the three were down in New Orleans to do a set at H.O.B.'s; I want to take this moment to thank those guys individually and collectively. After the show, they looked out for me and gave me some great advice. It was a blessing and an honor to get that opportunity. I know they got big things planned with Cole's album on the way in October (at latest) so get ready for that. Big shouts go out to Keith, (who just turned 20), Dave, Michele, Tenae, and Brock as well.

I look forward to paying my dues, perfecting my craft, and becoming a better artist and person along the way. So with that being said, to everyone that's ever listened to my music, ever took the time to hear me spit a verse, or supported me in the most minute way thank you, I sincerely appreciate it. Just know I'm taking my time because I want things to be right when I'm ready to get the ball rolling. I don't wanna put stuff out there just to say I did. I want it to be special. Anyways, I should be updating the blog more routinely again soon so stay tuned to see what's next. Much love and God bless,


P.S. Here's some footage from the show:
