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!

New Music: Bridget Kelly

New girl, Bridget Kelly dropped her EP with the Frank Ocean penned "Thinking About You" as the lead track. Download it below!

Covered: N*ggas In Paris

Today we have two remix's of "N*ggas In Paris" off of the luxurious, "Watch the Throne".

First up is the T.I. featured track. I must say, it was refreshing to hear his voice again! We missed you T.I.P.!
T.I. - Niggas In Paris (Remix) by CLUBNETWORK

And then we have the Breezy and T. pain version. They added some spook on theirs.

 The original version still remains supreme but I appreciate the effort!

Video: Headlines (Drake)

Drake just released the video for "Headlines" off of his upcoming album, 'Take Care". In this video Drake attempts to position himself as the head of the game or the king of the game as evident in him sitting at the head of the table and riding an elevator solo to the top. I am almost convinced that he is throwing subtle shade at reigning King, Jay Z. Check it.
