As we know, iLoooooove me some T.I. This man has 2 be on the top of my lists of lovers in my head…along with Kid Kudi, Chris Brown, B.O.B. and Tyga. But anyway, iJust love the way he walks, the way he speaks, and his act of wanting to provide for his family. He’s 1 of the few rap artists (counting the ones who iJust named and a handful of others) Who iActually listen 2. He’s probably among a good 3 or 4 rap artists who albums iCan listen to beginning to end and purchase legally. T.I.’s upcoming album King Uncaged is scheduled to be released on August 17th and iCan’t wait. So until it comes out, we have a few singles to listen too and his cd cover to gaze upon that was released today. The cover is simple, 2 simple if u ask me but it’s artistic…kinda. The lion not only looks a bit out of place, but it also scares me. This cover is giving me Lion King + King of the Bitches tease. Though iDon’t really like his cover, it is the best cover iSeen since the 2007 release of King. Maybe it would be better with some color. Oh well, he looks good though !
So we’re gonna try something new over here at DefGlam. While there will be additional news, pics, thoughts and views, there will also be set segment days Monday – Friday. We already kicked things off with Fetish Friday, which got a lot of good feedback. Today is Music Monday. We (most likely just I) will pick a song (new or old) that iWould like to share with u. So saying that here we go:
Today’s selection is The Roots. While they may not have alot of mainstream success, they are definitely among the elite in the underground universe. iMyself have my share of Songs by them that iLike. There album How iGot Over is due out on June 22. For all of you hip hop readers, make sure u support them by buying (or legally downloading) the album![audio:http://urbanbackground.com/defglam/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/The-Roots-The-Fire-ft.John-Legend.mp3%5D
iAm proud to announce that the remake of 1984’s The Karate Kid starring Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan had debuted at #1 over the weekend! Hollywood.com has stated that the movie made an estimation of $56 million dollars by yesterday evening. The movie was produced with a budget of 40 million and it exceeded the studio’s expectations (along with peoples expectations including myself). The movie itself was produced by Jaden’s parents Will and Jada Pinkett Smith. Another 80’s hit, The A-Team came in at second place with 26 million this weekend. I’m relieved that the Karate Kid did great on it’s opening weekend, and also received mixed (mostly positive) reviews from critics. iWas very much double sided when it came to the film. A part of me wanted it to do great, while another part of me had its doubts. iThink that Jaden has a promising career as a child star and can work his way up to a wonderful adult star like both of his parents. He’s already won 7 awards and has critical acclaim. Along with acting, Jaden is also a dancer and rapper as he appears on the “theme song” to the movie entitled Never Say Never which features teen Pop (and annoying) star Justin Beiber.
