Of course Marlon Wayans had to break out the Pharrell hat too, right?
Here’s a sneak peak at the entertaining new Lip Sync Battle with Marlon emulating Pharrell’s “Happy”. Looks good so far! He’ll be battling Queen Latifah who is set to channel some LL Cool J tomorrow (Thursday).
Much respect to Big Sean with the song choice and the heartfelt dedication preface to his late Grandma on tonight’s Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
This is one of the best songs off Dark Sky Paradise and Sean took the stage to deliver some substance, inspiration, and relatability to the late night audience likely hearing this for the first time. Adding to the emphasis on the words is the subtle, and minimal piano melody that will stick with you just as much as the message. Sean caps it off with a brief, yet again inspiring message to the public that you can be anything you want to be. Cliche, sure, but true and fitting with the song. Give this a good look below.
And if you’re wondering that’s Rose Byrne and LL Cool J along with Jimmy and Big Sean as they also played Pictionary for the fun, late night game below.
Finally, I also suppose a Big Sean post today should warrant mentioning of the official announcement… that he and Ariana Grande have broken up, with reps citing conflicting tour schedules that would keep them apart for a long time. Take it for what it is, but they were cool while it lasted.
Dame Dash presents Loisadas — an aspiring hood film classic that is what Kanye West apparently jumped on as executive producer. He’s not credited in the poster above, LL Cool J is actually, but on Dame’s instagram, Kanye is.
Episode 1 can be viewed below with the live stream of the whole thing later tonight. Smoke DZA, Murda Mook, The Lox all appear.
Me and Em have a song. He recently just let me hear his verse and it’s crazy. He’s chainsawing shit. It’s good. I think people are going to be pleasantly surprised when they hear me and him on a record together. This is the first time we ever did something together.
The above quote, via LL Cool J, as he preps an upcoming album G.O.A.T. 2
The album title may incite the opposite reaction of Eminem “chainsawing shit” so I’m lookin’ forward to at least this collab.
LL also confirms collabs with T.I. & Fred The Godson for the album. Good look for Freddy to be mentioned with Em & T.I., huh?
Release date on all of the above TBD. Full interview below.
Raekwon, Murda Mook, & Ron Browz assist LL on his second preview of G.O.A.T. 2. The upcoming album is said to feature this raw collab below. Is it nice like the song title suggests?
LL hops on the DJ Mustard-produced “Main Chick”, off the upcoming DJ Whoo Kid, DJ Skee, and DJ MLK’s SXEW compilation mixtape, dropping in full tomorrow.
