Video: Ambitious Girl (Wale)

Finally, a video for Wale's "Ambitious Girl"!! This video captures the true complexity of the struggle of trying to win. It's a simple concept but a story with much more depth than what is initially assumed.

Videos: Beyonce

Bey dropped two videos off of her last album, 4. Check "End of Time" with visuals from two of her recent performances at Roseland and Glastonbury and "I Was Here" with footage from Roseland and her life. Super cute.

Just Get To Know...

Yessir! It's that time again, ladies and gents!! I was fortunate enough to get sent one dope new up and comer and to discover another via the wonderful world of the internets. *smize*

 First up is Nyemiah Supreme. Forwarded to me by my sis. Nyemiah is uber cute and super talented! Her potential is bubbling over and as I told my sister, I love when a chick is channeling a nice hefty dose of masculine in their style. Check Nyemiah below.

Next up is Chicago's very own Tia London with her recently released track, "Nothing On You". Check that video as well!

Read: 9 Things Successful People Do Differently

In the quest to be great I've happened upon a wealth of phenomenal resources. The Harvard Business Review has been a huge segment of online beneficial personal development websites and the article listed below illustrates just that.

9 Things Successful People Do Differently

1. Get Specific
2. Seize the moment to act on your goals
3. Know exactly how far you have left to go
4. Be a realistic optimistic
5. Focus on getting better, rather than being good
6. Have grit
7. Build your willpower muscle
8. Dont tempt fate
9. Focus on what you will do, not won't you won't do

Covered: I Miss You (Frank Ocean)

Frank Ocean wins top mixtape of the year in my book and he is definitely on the top "3 albums/mixtape of the year" list. Frank continues to prove that his innate interpretation of music is wholly unique and a music industry necessity. Check Frank singing a snippet of Bey's "I Miss You", which he penned, at a recent concert in his hometown of New Orleans.

Performance: Lupe Fiasco

In case you missed it, Lupe performed his hit single, "Words I Never Said" on the BET Hip Hop Awards a few weeks ago. Catch Lupe rocking the Basquiat inspired updo with a burka clad Erykah Badu backing the chorus. EPIC!

Video Rundown

I'm really weird about posting music videos. I think unless your name is Kanye West or Beyonce you dont deserve a spot in my life... this is unless of course, your video is DOPE. With that being said, I'll offer you a round up of videos you may have missed. Dope and more.

Here's newcomer Elle Varner with the J. Cole featured track, "Only Wanna Give It To You". Loving the colors and I am very curious about the way her team intends to brand her. Cute girl.

 Now THIS video is DOPE. Check Rihanna with "We Found Love", directed by Melina.
Rihanna on WhoSay

 I'm CRAZY about the styling in the video and in LOVE with the way they're branding Cher Lloyd! (A post coming soon on the duo who styled Cher in this video.) WOOORD!
