I had the priveledge of meeting Karmin, the youtube sensation who remixes various Hip Hop songs and makes them her own, while on the red carpet at the ESPYs. I ran into her first at the ESPY Pre Party. She is an absolute doll.
I asked her on the carpet her favorite remix and she stated it was Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” freestyle, which she said was harder to learn than the Busta Rhymes verse on Chris Brown’s “Look at me Now”.
I will be waiting as I propose her and her partner remake a JCole song as I am a huge fan. They put me on the spot and asked my favorite! Of course all Jcole songs are my favorite but “Killers” and “Premeditated Murder” came to mind. I promise I’m not crazy! lol
Again, thought I’d enlighten my readers with some more JCole, first artist signed to Jay Z’s Roc Nation. Below I have the lyrics to the first verse in the song. Clever!! This guy raps a story! I miss good music like this. Take a listen. You can also follow J Cole on Twitter @JColeNC

I’m so excited about being able to find something to bring J Cole to FCP. Check out the video where he remakes the Baseball Tonite theme for ESPN. This young man from North Carolina is talented and I will most definitely support him on his way to the top.
Roles reversed. Many Rappers wish they could be athletes, while athletes test out their luck in rapping. None ever become real successful. It becomes more of a joke. But it appears that Golden State Warriors’ guard Monte Ellis is serious about this rap thing. While sitting down with a local dj by the name DJ Chuy Gomez, Ellis speaks on upcoming singles and hopes of getting his own label. Continue reading Video:Warriors' Monte Ellis Takes a Shot at Rapping→
