Whoever produced this beat is an absolute genius. Bieber made a great decision by recruiting young up-n-comer Chance the Rapper. He’s been killing it lately and is getting a lot of feature requests. This might be his biggest one into the pop world. Bieber’s fan base is ridiculous when you hop on a song with him. Here’s “Confident”.
Whoa… that felt cool. Both Macklemore and Jay Z in the same title referring to Grammy nominations. We can’t make this stuff up. Jay Z is nominated for nine and Macklemore for seven. Sounds like they’ll both be taking home some hardware for sure. Congratulations to the both of them.
It’s so awesome to see R. Kelly make such a strong come back these days. This time we’ve got him on Jimmy Kimmel with 2 Chainz performing some of his standout singles. Check out the footage below…
Even though it’s Jay Z’s birthday today, it’s also the anniversary of the death of the late great Pimp C. So Jay takes a verse from him and throws it on a “Tom Ford” remix. Listen below.
There’s no arguing that Jay Z is one of the best rappers to ever pick up a microphone, if not THE best. He’s also a great businessman starting Roc Nation, Roca Wear, his own sports agency, and so many more businesses that a lot of people are unaware of. He is one of the most influential people of our generation and feel more than blessed that he has been part of the Rich Kids Brand movement wearing the “Hooligans” sweatshirt to Brooklyn Nets games twice now. We appreciate you big homie and wish you nothing but the best on your 43rd birthday! Here are some of Jay Z’s greatest moments and music videos via YouTube.

There are honestly so many moments that we could post, but that would probably take up the entire work day. Hov is clearly the best to do it in both business and music. He could go out on top right now and say that he’s done it all but the best part about Jay Z is that he’s always looking to do more. Always looking to give back and give the people a great product over and over again.

Man, R. Kelly is really making a serious come back these days. Say what you want about it but dude has always had one hell of a voice. Here’s his new song with Jeezy “Spend That”.
