Pharrell Sobs Tears Of Joy While Watching The World Dance To ‘Happy’ - Video

Superthug was his best beat ever. 

ommmmmmmg

This like makes me cry. In a good way. I watched this interview and he was so overwhelmed with happiness that his passion touches people the way it does that he couldn’t hold back the tears. That’s precious.

Happy 25th anniversary to Soul II Soul’s Club Classics Vol. One (Virgin Records 4/10/89). Blending Hip Hop, R&B, Jazz, Funk, House, and of course Soul, this group brought that flavor to urban music and helped shape it to what it is now. Tracks like Keep It Movin, Fairplay, & probably their best known song Back to Life helped add that hip hop twist to R&B and can all still rock any party. #SouLIISouL #BackToLife #KeepOnMovin #Fairplay #JazzieB #CaronWheeler #NelleeHooper #DoreenWadell #1989

The BodyRock Episode 24: Biz Markie Tribute

Nobody Beats The Biz!!!

The BodyRock Show: 75- A Marvin Gaye Tribute

"Music makes the soul of a man"

Marvin said it best. Indeed music touches the heart and the soul, and Marvin Gaye was an artist with messages that touched souls, hearts and even minds. Whether it be the social theme behind What’s Going On, the sensuality of I Want You, or even the funk behind Got To Give It Up, the man knew how to convey a message like no other. So today on The BodyRock Show, we salute Mr. Marvin Pentz Gaye Jr on what would’ve been his 75th trip around the sun.

The BodyRock Show Episode 22: She’s Dope- The Women of Hip Hop

You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.
Brigham Young

As Women’s History Month comes to a close, it’s only right that we pay tribute to those that have paved the way on the mic and in the industry. DJ Jimmy Guap took the wheels of steels and paid homage to the ladies that have held it down. Today, we even premiered a new joint, “She Hulk” by emerging NYC artist Tigress Zoo. Be on the look out for her debut EP The Escape, produced entirely by Jimmy Guap. In the meantime, check the mix below:

While the 20th anniversary of Nas’ seminal debut (Illmatic) is approaching, we missed another career highlight. I Am…The Autobiography (Columbia Records, April 6th, 1999) celebrated its 15th year earlier this week. We know we know- it wasn’t ILLMATIC. However in the same breath it was one of his best albums. Tracks like “NY State of Mind Pt. 2”, “Nas is Like”, “Dr Knockboots” etc. have become gems in Nasir’s catalog. Oh, and how can we forget about the controversial “Hate Me Now”? #Nas #IAm #TheAutobiography #April6th1999 #15Years #HipHop #Queensbridge #DJPremier #classic #PuffDaddy #Timbaland
