Jake One - Home f/ Vitamin D, C-Note, Maneak B & Ish (MUSIC VIDEO)

via TheRealRhymesayers

Finally I'm happy to present the video to my tribute to Seattle, "Home". The song features MC's Vitamin D, Note, Maneak B and Ish, who have all big influences in music. Mix a Lot brought out his orange Lambo and Nate Burleson repped the town and the Seahawks as well. Super Director Zia did a phemomenal job creating the perfect visual for the music and now its time for the world to see it.

Cassie Responds to Nude Images Being Leaked to the Internets

We won't post the images here 'cause the ish is spreadin like wildfire, but it appears that Big Von was one of the first if not thee first to post the images online. Supposedly it ain't no thang to Cassie that you see the goodies for free. First the shaving of half her head of hair and now this. All the antics can't save your career let alone Diddy. Take that, take that, take that! (Singing) career FAIL. Unfortunately Cassie stays losing.

...okay, back to our regularly scheduled posts.
