Xzibit’s song Paparrazi sampled this song by Barbara Streisand that was originally composed by Gabriel Faur√© in 1887.

Every once in a while, I’ll go youtube surfing and just see where it leads me. I somehow stumbled on the following video:
Nas – Unauthorized Biography of Rakim

Rakim is one of my favorite rappers of all time, so here’s Eric B. and Rakim’s first single from his first album.
1986 Eric B. and Rakim – Eric B. is President

That lead me to some Rakim and EPMD interviews about some beef between the two that was created by the fans. So here’s a video from EPMD:
1988 EPMD – Strictly Business

Logan showed me this video a while back, but I’ve recently been listening to Beyonce’s new album 4. So far 1+1 is my favorite song on the album, and it just so happens that this video of her is equally amazing.

According to the video description, Jay-Z took this video on his iPhone. No amped mic, no reverb. All Beyonce.  Awesome.

Update: Logan just showed me another good Beyonce video. Video description says that she was visiting Jay-Z’s mom and decided to join in on the fun with some neighbors.
