Auto-Tune Lives!!!

Yes, I know it's the "cool" thing to hate on auto-tune now. And yes, it has become played out just like mash-ups did. But there are reasons why these things become played. Here is one of them. Kanye kills it on this song.

A world of talent, a world of demons, but simply the greatest performer ever. I remember the day I literally bumped into MJ at Disneyland (right after Thriller came out) and his bodyguard moved me out of the way. When I told my dad, of course he didn't believe me. The next day at the park, they closed down the Dumbo ride for MJ. I remember my cousins forcing me to watch Thriller and having nightmares of growing nails for months after. Then dressing up as MJ for Halloween. I remember how we all had to watch MJ's Superbowl performance, the "Black Or White" video debut, his concert from Bucharest (who else can sell out a stadium in Bucharest?) on HBO like they were yesterday and the excitement we all went to school with to talk about it the rest of the day (MJ was a worldwide shared experience before Facebook & Twitter). And that "Smooth Criminal" video changed me forever (remember the arcade game?). I was making plans for the London tour, but now I'll never see him in concert and that saddens me. The greatest pop music performer ever.
You better believe the tribute mixes are on the way (see my Twitter for those). Our tribute is all things MJ on Getdownnn TV (always on the sidebar). We won't bore you with everything that he has done, just some of our personal favorites. Tune in now. RIP MJ.

Here are some of my favorites:

More Than Meets The Eyes

{Soundblaster Transformer/MP3 player}

I got to have this!!! Hopefully Revenge Of The Fallen is better than the first one = more of Megan Fox.

We Come In Peace

...A Peaceful Riot... [Explicit]
What do you get when you combine great, soulful, thick beats with a smooth, consistent, personal flow? You get one of an early candidate for one of the best albums for 2009. Getdownnn with Bambu x Fatgums A Peaceful Riot. Much like their brethren The Blue Scholars, you get a message that's more than just booty, cash, narcissism. To be honest, I haven't heard much of Bambu's previous work and at times on this album he does get a little preachy, but for the most part his rhymes and stories are a breath of fresh air. Most of the time very personal, relatable, clever sense of humor
Bambu brings it.

And don't even get me started on the beats. Gums continues to bring it. Whether or not he sticks to being a Dr. or musician (do what you love, cause we don't need a doctor who's thinking about a beat in his head while seeing a patient), he continues (hopefully) to bring the milky goodness (for our selfish pleasure)
Treat yourself well and go buy this album right now.
(Sidenote: They may be up for URB's Next 100 (vote for them here), but remember who said that Gums was Next first.)

{I used to watch this video everyday for like a year in elementary school. Maybe that's why I got the new cut. The world needs someone like Mr. T. again!}

Be somebody, or be somebody's fool!

Lean On Bill

{Gotta watch it.}

Some jewels:


This weekend is about being thankful.  This is bringing me back to some early Rawkus/Hi-Tek niceness.  Thank you!

Ecstatic About Ecstatic

Even though Beyonce is a product, she is killing it with the dance routines in her videos recently.

And the remix with the Superman of Super-Egos:

I'm sure you've seen this before, but I thought it was topical.


Everyone Is A DJ

All I want for Xmas.

And for you MCs out there.

Why You Should Stay Up 'Late Night With Jimmy Fallon'


{Check Your Head changed my life. Make sure to pick up the reissue with "golden tickets" inside. Beasties is by far the best hip-hop show I've ever been to. And The Roots are a close second.}


I just feel bad for Black Thought, more like Afterthought.


That's right, a Blackstar reunion show in NYC this past weekend!!!

We've been here for 3 years now. Pretty crazy. To help celebrate we got an exclusive mix from DJ Mike Rizzy. Enjoy!
