B.o.B films Don’t Let Me Fall in Denver/Morrison

Hip-hop star B.o.B filmed his latest video, for Don’t Let Me Fall, in Colorado.  You will recognize scenes from downtown Denver as well as Morrison and Red Rocks.  I doubt it’s very common that rap videos get made in Colorado, but it’s also not very often that a mainstream hip-hop album doesn’t suck.  Kudos...

Rick Ross – Teflon Don

Rick Ross – Teflon Don Miami dirty south rapper Rick Ross follows last year’s Deeper Than Rap with another solid hardcore rap album.  Ross is one of the few artists in the genre who almost convince me they are as hard as they claim to be…even though I doubt he is. Rick Ross ft....
