Day 5: New Music for your Headphones


Bun B & Drake hooking up again on a track with Pimp C. The beat is real chill; you gotta check it out:

Pimp C - What's Up ft. Drake & Bun B (Produced by Boi-1da)



Just found another new track from Jamie Foxx with T.I. This may probably be on Jamie Foxx's new album coming out this Fall, I presume. Check it out:

Day 3: F-A.. B-O.. L-O.. U-S (Events)


8/28 (Culver City, CA): Yesterday, some friends and I attended the Heineken Inspire event in LA and maaan it was awesome. Tickets to get in were mad cheap ($1, $5, $10) because it was all for a donation to a good cause. The set up was real cool inside as they had lounge areas up where you can play video games, Foosball, or just hang out on the couches & kick it. They were giving our free Heineken all day since it was a Heineken sponsored event, and on top of that there was free food (hot dogs, tacos, mini burgers, veggie panninis), cool free t-shirts, and even booths to take fun pictures. The scene was super chill accompanied by a lot of beautiful young ladies which was definitely a plus (where did they all come from???!!!). I'm surprised and happy it wasn't that crowded because usually events like this, especially in LA, always get packed with people.

So, we went to the 3-7PM showing which featured performances by Ryan Leslie and FAAAAAAABOLOUS! In between performances, you had Skillz keeping the energy up alongside DJ Jazzy Jeff who was just rippin it up with cool beats on the turntables. If I ever have a baller bday party, I'm definitely gonna have him DJ at my party. We also saw QuestLove there, but I think he was just kickin it. Amber Rose made an appearance later on, and she was looking sooooo nice & seemed like a super chill person. I swear if you look into her eyes too long you will turn into stone.

Anyways, good music, live performances, free beer & food, cool scene, something to do, and it only costed a $1! Major props to Heineken, and I'll be looking forward to the next Inspire event. I'll donate more next time... =)

Here are some more pics:

- DJ Jazzy Jeff scratchin those turntables

- Skillz & DJ Jazzy Jeff keepin the music flowin

- Wdup Skillz!! He says he will be dropping an album sometime this October, so I'll be on the lookout for that

- Hey look it's QuestLove! My homie got a pic wit him; I'm so jealous because he wasn't letting too many people take pics with him

- Ryan Leslie performing.. did a lot of R&B songs. Time to get some more beer!

- No more man, we just want to see F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S

- Amber Rose... no comment

- We finally got her to notice us and she decided to do a pose for us, but right when we took the pic this goober got in the way. Way to ruin a picture d00d!

- Fabolous had a good set; a mixture of a lot of his good old songs along with some new ones. LIGHTS OUT!

- Thanks Heineken! I'll be back ;)

- I'll end it with this quote. Enjoy...

Day 2: Jennings to Wall Alley-Up

Just saw this video yesterday:

After I saw that video I found out they were hosting an event over here in Venice, CA this weekend called the Elite 24 where ESPNU scouts selected the top high school ballers from across the nation for a scrimmage game. So, yesterday there was the dunk contest, which I came to check out but I didn't really see any super amazing dunks, granted these were just high school kids. There were 4 judges: John Wall, DeMar Derozan, Brandon Jennings, and Tyrek Evans. It was cool seeing them there, but they seemed bored. Here are a few pictures from the event:

- Booooooooo!

- From left to right: John Wall (out of picture), DeMar Derozan, Brandon Jennings, Tyrek Evans

- Finally a good dunk, which got Derozan & Jennings off their chairs. Too bad I missed it because there was like a 7-footer blocking my view...

- This was probably the dunk of the day: off the backboard between the legs. I think this d00d won the contest with this

- John Wall showing his appreciation to the fans. Let's see what he can do in his rookie season with the Wizards.

More of this event can be found here: http://rise.espn.go.com/

The actual scrimmage is today, so if you're in the area go check it out @ Venice Beach 4:30PM PST (Free to the public).

PREFACE - I'm Goin In

My name is Jason, but some of my friends call me J-Ro cuz I'm an ALKAHOLIC! HOLLAAA! But you can call me whatever you want ;P

I've created this blog to show the world what is gaining my interests at the moment, hook people up with some fun stuff & good music (to listen to only), and hopefully give people perspective on things in today's world. MY perspective that is...

A little more background about what I'll be blogging about: 
  • Originally from the Bay, now living LA. I have a passion to finding good music (especially Hip-Hop) that appeals to me, which I hope you will vibe to as well. I love sports and can watch Basketball & Football all day. I'm not much of a gamer anymore, but still pay attention to the gaming world. Technology & Entertainment fascinate me, so I try to keep updated with that. I'm not real good with fashion tips, but I'll be on the lookout for some stylish gear. I love silly videos so I'll be all over that; gotta stay busy at work ya kno?
I hope people can gain some insight, enjoy my postings, or get whatever they need from my blog as everyday there's always something new to share, learn, and talk about. Taken from a 2pac song: We continue growin one day at a time.

On that note: Day One starts now!
