“GANGSTA” KAT DAHLIA
Human nature takes overwhenever someone new explodes onto the scene. We want to call them the “next Michael Jordan”, “the new Bob Dylan”, so it’s hard to not point out the obvious when you listen to Kat Dahlia. The 21 year old female Cuban rapper reminds me so much of early Eminem on her new single. Attitude and confident with an aggressive style that totally draws you inside. Kat Dahlia is an artist ready for the big time in 2013. BET named her a “Music Matters” artist, VIBE magazine is calling her a star, and MTV has jumped on the new single. Let’s check back in 2014 for an Eminem/Kat Dahlia collaboration.
“FALL FOR YOUR TYPE” JAMIE FOXX with DRAKE

Fall For Your Type teams up Canadian rapper, Drake, with Jamie for a smooth, somber, slow burning hit that will perfectly set the romantic mood. The video stars Playmate Jessica Burciaga as the love interest. The mesmerizing beat, Chris Robinson’s intricate directing, Jessica’s exotic look (a combination of Mexican, French, and Irish heritage), and the slow motion glass shattering in the video grabs your attention until the very end.
