Finally

After a very long wait (almost a life time, am I right) and a “meh” first single, the long anticipated second single, ‘I Need a Doctor’ is finally here. The second single from the long, long delayed, Detox album. The album itself was in production for more than ten years and at one point became more myth then real. But now with this single on hand we might actually get it after all.

The video itself is great and very visual. One of the longest intros’s ever in a music video and we all seen Lady Gaga’s Alejandro. If Skylar Grey plays her cards right then she may have a long career ahead of her (and in the music biz nowadays 2 years is consider a life time.)

An epic video, for an epic song, to a very EPIC comeback, from raps, and music in general, Dr. Dre.

Lady Gaga’s new single…

It’s here and it has a dance sound behind it. It’s okay, I guess, but it is catchy  and it will be, no doubt, a huge hit. One point for the people that were, “born this way” …

For the loyal readers of PID here’s the link to “Born this way”

(It’s Lady Gagas official vevo page)

Valentine’s day is a coming….

What can I say about valentine’s day that hasn’t been said about an incurable disease. Yeah, love sucks and it hurts too, but what doesn’t kill makes you stronger. Right? Most R&B and Pop songs are about love and breakup. So why do so many of us (me included) run so far from it? Who knows? Maybe it’s the pain it brings, or maybe the heartbreak happens more times then we like to admit. Regardless Valentine’s day is around the corner so enjoy it, alone or with a loved one.

NEWS

Me being a HUGE Lady Gaga fan I was just excited to read that Lady Gaga will release her first single, Born This Way, on February 13th and her next album, of the same name, will be released on May 23rd. This maybe the second biggest release of the year (first being Detox of course) so far. Until then lets hope Lady Gaga doesn’t fall off. Read more at:

Recovery review

Eminem, one of hip-hops most respected and well know artist in the world. A genius when it comes to music who so happens to be the highest selling rapper of the past decade and a living legend. What can I say about Eminem that hadn’t been said before? In early 2000’s Eminem was on top of the world releasing 2 back to back classics (The Marshall Mathers LP and The Eminem Show) and going multi-platinum in less than a week for both albums. It was a good time to be Eminem, or at least that’s what it seemed in front of the camera. Like most Hollywood success stories the fantasy was about to end and the reality was about to set in. A dark cloud was hanging over Eminem like a bad weather forecast.
During the height of his career, everything was looking great for Eminem, but his life took a turn for the worse. Eminem somehow managed be involved in a much publicized feud with The Source magazine, a second divorce with his wife Kim, and the death of his best and closest DeShaun Dupree “Proof” Holton. All this proved to be a lot more than he can handle which led to rumors of him retiring and a drug addiction to sleeping pills. After a 5 year hiatus he finally came back with Relapse. Relapse was Eminem’s “comeback” album, but it was more a lackluster then a triumph comeback. The album was full weird accents and nasty lyrics. A lot was going against Eminem and his comeback was less then memorable. It was looking grim for him until his next single came out, “Not Afraid.” In June of 2010 Recovery came out and it blew everyone exceptions (including mine.)
Recovery is a tight album from beginning to end. A solid album that focuses more on his life then his trademark humor and he does a great job expressing himself without sounding whiny and his first album without any skits his first without any accents since Encore. The album starts out with Eminem singing and then the beat drops and he starts rapping like he hasn’t rap in years. He sounds like he found his passion for rapping again and every track you can feel his emotion while he raps. “Going Through Changes,” Eminem is rapping about his life after his best friends murder and even if the listener never lost a loved one they can relate to the song because most people went through changes one way or another. Eminem also touches on Proof’s murder and how it affected him and he also explains why he didn’t release an album on five years. This album came out last year but I wanted to review it still because it’s still good and Eminem was nominated for album of the year for the Grammys and he may have a shot of winning.

A solid album with great beats and lyrics. A few weak tracks but not much to really hurt the album.
A great album all around **** and ½ stars

My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy review

This year for music was pretty much the same as last year’s boring, lack of excitement, and slowly declining. What a year to be a music fan, huh? Even with lackluster year there were some surprises. My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye West’s 5th album, is a breath of fresh air for both rap and music in general. Rap music in general is a dying breed; some even say the next disco, so to hear a rap album done so well is amazing. From beginning to end, every single track has something to offer to the listeners. Even the intro with Nicki Minaj, a 5 sec skit, is great. To be honest, this is Kanye West weakest album and that says a lot because this is a solid album. I felt that they were too many feature rappers that ruined the tracks. A good example “the devil in a blue dress” a great song, but Rick Ross just ruined the song by sharing his verse that had absolutely nothing to do with the track, “making love to the angle of death,” seriously? If Kanye West made one track with just himself it would’ve been a better album. A solid album, one of the years best

**** 1/2 out of 5
