Tomorrow is going to be a pretty big day in hip hop. There is a lot happening. To make it easier for everyone I am going to break it down in list form and highlight what I think are the three biggest news items.
1. Documentary on Lil Wayne is released on DVD tomorrow.
I know I said I was going to cut back on Lil Wayne, but he is everywhere. Absolutely everywhere. This is another example. Premiering at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, “The Carter” takes an intimate look at the world’s number one rapper. Although the project looks promising Wayne attempting to have it’s release stopped. But eventually allowed it’s release. Judging from some of the clips I have seen. It looks like it should pretty interesting. Below are some clips from the film. The first is the official trailer and the second is a clip from the film.
2. Kanye West Releases “Whatever You Want (G.O.O.D. Music Remix)”
On his blog, Kanye posted a poster teasing the release of a “Whatever You Want” remix. The remix will feature Consequence, John Legend, Common, Kid Cudi and Big Sean. Can’t wait to hear this one. Below is a video for Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say” Featuring Kanye West and Common
3. Selected Cities Get Pre-Sale Tickets For Jay-Z’s Blueprint 3 Tour
To follow the success of Jay-Z‘s Blueprint 3 album, Hova will be hitting the road with Young Jeezy. While the tour is country wide and begins in February, selected pre-sale tickets for certain cities will be available tomorrow. Chicago is included as one of those cities. All tickets will be available come the 21st. I missed Jay-Z once when he cancelled his tour with R. Kelly and I am not going to miss him again. Below is a video for Jay-Z’s “Empire State”
