“100 thousand dollars, 200 thousand, you name it /
Beamer, Benz, or Bentley, Bugatti body you claim it /
And all of it depends on the way you shakin’ your anus”

— Nelly, “Lose Control (Let Me Down)”

Those bars were almost enough for me to forget how atrocious the songwriting is on Keri Hilson’s new album…but then I heard “Pretty Girl Rock” again and I remembered.

Asher Roth ft. Keri Hilson – She Don’t Wanna Man (video)

Posted in Artists, Comedy, Music Videos on August 24th, 2009 by Hyphen

Asher returns with another perfect college single, just in time for the back to school rush.  They’ve actually been pushing this track for a minute and I’m a bit surprised it hasn’t caught on little more honestly.  The beat is cool, the content is radio friendly (read: Becky from the suburbs likes to sing it in her new Jetta), the hook is catchy, Asher’s verses are cool, and the crowd at our Summer Jam responded well to it (interview still coming soon).  Oh…and Keri Hilson is fiiiiiiiiiine (in real life too).

We’ll see if the visuals help turn the song into a hit…but in the meantime, this song will always remind me of one of Dane Cook’s few funny moments:

Keri Hilson ft. Kanye West & Ne-Yo – Knocks You Down (video)

I’m not a huge fan of this track as a whole, but Kanye status = insta-post.  I readily admit that I jock dude, pause, but he’s probably my favorite artist doing it right now.  On a side note, do you think Keri Hilson’s album lived up to all the buzz/hype she’s been getting?  I’m only one listen in, and there are definitely some joints (“Alienated” and “Slow Dance” in particular), but I dunno…

In case you forgot, the lovely Ms. Hilson reminds you.

Kardinal Offishall ft. Keri Hilson – Numba 1 (Tide Is High) (video)

(chyea @ the Usain Bolt pose at 1:45)

This is the third incarnation of this song, as the initial leaked version featured the Pussycat Dolls, the album track featured Rihanna, and now the video features Keri Hilson.  To be honest, I can’t really pick one of those over the other, since they all do a decent job.  The best part of this song is clearly Kardi and his energy, and the video does a great job capturing what one of his live shows is like.  Dropping videos like this in October just isn’t fair though.  The weather is starting to get awful and [Biggie] I swear to God sometimes it feels like death Jamaica is callin’ me [/Big].

Huge shout to Kardi and the Black Jays fam, especially for tossing my favorite track off of Not 4 Sale, “Nina,” at the end of the clip.  Video courtesy of OnSmash.

Nas ft. Keri Hilson – Hero (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos, Politics on July 7th, 2008 by Hyphen

So dope.  Thoughts:

  • I approve of any muay thai reference.
  • Ironic, I also walk around the city with someone playing a bass drum behind me.
  • I heart Keri Hilson.
  • This might be the dopest single this year in terms of straight lyrics.
  • That third verse is one of my favorite verses of the year.
  • When it’s all said and done, Nas could very well be the G.O.A.T..
  • Cop Nas’ album on the 15th!
