Tony Kornheiser On ESPN's P.T.I., "I've Gotta Keep Working To Pay Off My Jump Offs" = Hilarious!

Jay Electronica Performs "Exhibit 'C'" @ The Roots' 6th Annual Pre-Grammy Jam @ The Key Club In LA x A Special LiveStyle Commentary.

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: As a dedicated MC myself, forgive me if I don't swoon over every mildly talented new artist @ the mere mention of their name. Case In Point: Jay Electronica. Now, please don't construe my critical analysis of his deafening "buzz" as "hate" or any other outright dismissive word meant to cripple my argument @ the knees, but, #imjustsaying homeboy is NOT the microphone Messiah that many would mislead Y.O.U. to believe. Sorry.

Yes, Jay Electronica is a gifted wordsmith, but me thinks that much of the adulation surrounding his music stems from the fact that he's from Down South (N.ew O.rleans to be exact) and that many of us tend to wrongly expect less lyrics and more ignorance from our brothers and sisters from below the Mason/Dixon Line. He benefits from reverse RAPism ... lol. I listen to Jay Electronica and all I hear is Nas and Common 2010. Once he put some coherent bars together laced with morsels of esoteric rhetoric the world of desperately Avant-Garde poseurs was putty in his chew stick stained hands. Additionally, his liberal use of %5 Lessons throughout his songs are ripe with nostalgia and a welcome return to a celebration of Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding as opposed to today's Chronic, Bitches and Not Caring To Understand A Thing. I get it, he's the perfect guy to root for right now.

All in all, I DO fux with this nigga ... for real. I am as happy to see Mr. Jay Elec'Yarmulke receive this current blast of media hype as I was when Drake 1st burst onto the scene ... both of these artists turn the spotlight on ALL of us whom truly L.O.V.E. the craft of lyricism. And there aint nothing wrong with that.

Behind The Scenes: Rosa Acosta Junior's Photoshoot (Video x Pics) Live From Brooklyn, NY @ IECStudios.Com x Dynastyseries.Com.

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: The current pound-for-pound heavyweight champion of the "video vixen" game (NOTE: Boasting an impressive CompuFox™ score plus/minus rating +30 points higher than that of her nearest ranking competitor, not to mention also probably better than your best Big Buck Hunter® score ... lol), Rosa Acosta shows no signs of slowing the hoeing down!

Yes, this B.ehind T.he S.cenes video a recent photoshoot with IEC Studios and Dynastyseries.Com on location in Brooklyn, NY in front of the world famous Mecca of cheesecake, Junior's, is a few months old, yet, nevertheless, it still begs the question: Where the fuck was I when this all went down? I want answers people! LOL. Good shit!

Tony Yayo - Bullets Whistle (Official Music Video)(From The Forthcoming "Gun Powder Guru" Street LP)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Please turn to Matthew 5.5 in your King James Bible and repeat after me, "Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth". Amen. In similar fashion, blessed are the weak lyricists: for they and their rich personality shall inherit the audience ... lol.

As the once mighty and infallible G-Unit has recently experienced a steep recession of interest from Hip Hop fans, Tony "T.alk O.f N.ew Y.ork" Yayo has single-handedly managed to become about the only exciting thing going for this crew.

Much like an early Master P, what this Southside Jamaica, Queens native lacks in verbal dexterity, he more than makes up for in colorful narratives that prove that, despite his millions, he is never too far from the hood. Peep his latest visual for "Bullets Whistle" from his forthcoming mixtape/street album "Gun Powder Guru". Real recognize real. Good shit!

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: With 10 ... count 'em ... 10 Grammy Award nominations on deck, how could 60 Minutes NOT interview Destiny's chosen Child, Beyoncé Knowles Carter? Peep game.

Mariah Carey Ft. Nicki Minaj - Up Out My Face (Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: I don't wanna hear shit! Y.O.U. know EXACTLY why I posted this Mariah Carey video featuring everybody's favorite potty mouthed Lil Kim "Replacement Killer", Nicki Minaj. A Livestyle Viewing Suggestion: Feel more than free to press "PLAY" and then quickly press "MUTE" if Y.O.U. must ... lol. It is what it is.

Helloooooo Ladies: The Christian Louboutin "Madame" Tall Boots = MESHamphetamine.

Information Courtesy Of: Saksfifthavenue.Com

Available Online Here: Saksfifthavenue.Com

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: That's right ladies! Just when Y.O.U. thought it was safe to say, "the Devil may care" to your Nair® and carelessly neglect your pedicure appointments during the frosty Winter months, leave it to Christian Louboutin - the lord high exalted of the modern stiletto - to artfully call your bluff. The Christian Louboutin "Madame" Tall Boots are, literally, simply stunning. Sans all of the bells and whistles that clutter many contemporary heels, the "Madame" boot is merely peek-a-boo mesh, Italian leather trim and signature red-lacquered sole ... a triumphant trifecta of cool as any I've seen.

Honestly, I have heard complaints that this "barely there" style runs a great risk of appearing cheap. Nevertheless, I am of the opinion that the wearer of ANY article of clothing is the ultimate decider of what may or may not translate as "cheap". Basically, put a bust down bitch in a titillatingly tight Herve Leger dress and her "cheapness" will stain the arm pits ... lol. That's no reflection on the quality of the dress - aint nobody's fault but hers ... lol. Feel me? It is what it is.

The minimalist beauty of this boot notwithstanding, I do, however, see a few problems on the horizon. I have dark and gloomy premonitions of wealthy women with gnarly toes slipping their hooves into these pairs and, worse still, knock-offs of this austere design taking up wall space @ Bakers come Spring 2010.

Now, clearly none of those possible points of contention are the concern of Christian Louboution, nor should they be. Where I can place blame though is the extreme price tag of $1,325. Yeah, I feel Y.O.U. mama ... @ a price like that you'd probably want a complete boot ... lol. Hey, don't shoot the messenger. Holla @ ya boy in BK!

Curt@!n$ - Exodus (Official Music Video)(Directed By Va$htie)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Shout out to Curt@!n$, Young Rob and Va$htie for this compelling visual for his latest street leakage "Exodus". Yes, my family continues to accumulate accolades ... color me proud! Message To The Blogs: Never will it stop. Step your life up! LOL. Holla @ ya boy in BK!

(L to R: My cousin/fellow brilliant Piscean visionary entrepreneur Rob Young and the undisputed "Queen Of The Downtown Scene" gone global, the lovely Ms. Va$htie Kola smoking some Grade-A Cohiba Corona Cigars in Las Vegas Circa 2009)

DJ Green Lantern x Styles P. Ft. Dwayne Collins - Send A Kite (Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Yessir, DJ Green Lantern and The G-host got THIS! Good shit.

Tahiry José Talks Being Young x In L.O.V.E. With Ghetto Fabolous @ VladTV.Com AKA The Gassed Ass (Once Again) Blasts Back @ Joe Budden.

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Be clear, I have posted this grotesque green-screen video of Tahiry José discussing how she used to fuck Fabolous strictly for illustration purposes only. Much as I and any other man whom could resist the magnetic pull of her impressive natural "mangu" stuffed ASSets could've told Y.O.U. (NOTE: And I DID tell Y.O.U.) a loooooooooong time ago, Joe Budden would create a Stankenstein monster of this simple woman.

Look, I like Tahiry - she seems nice enough - but please tell me what she does. Can she sing? Not likely. Can she rap? *See previous answer* Can she dance? Possibly, but her baseless elevated sense of social value probably precludes her from participating in what she might (I assume) @ this point in her "career" deem to be entry level stripper roles beneath such an up-and-coming starlet of her caliber. Yeah, right. LOL.

I'll give it to Joey ... he's managed to somehow attract some premium tail into his "Padded Room". Perhaps Tahiry and, now, Somaya Reece had hopes of contributing to his creative talents and mending his wounded little broken junkie heart. Alas, much like the Bermuda Triangle, the Budden Triangle (New name. Patent pending) only manages to successfully ruin these bitches and drown them in the murky depths of his own inescapable wack juice.

Message To The Livestyle Reader: Never, not even for the promise of quick burning internet fame, impulsively broadcast ALL of your personal life to the world! Keep your private life private my friend. Attention whore men wife up attention whore women and have attention whore kids. Know the ledge.

Live From (capsule) Paris: The New Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co. Collection = Mount FRESHmore.

"(capsule) Paris brings us some looks from the Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co. specializing in down down feather vests and jackets. The company, originally founded in Wyoming, has a a strong following in the Japanese market, but with their showing in Paris, expectations are set high for the brand’s strong return to form in Europe and North America."

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Far from the quite pleasing, yet downright delusional practice of hopelessly wishful thinking, I have indeed begun to notice that the days are once again getting longer. No surprises here ... this sort of thing happens every year ... lol. I only mention this welcome natural time shift because - believe it or not - Spring is fast approaching and because, in light of that fact, I probably have no business posting more and more Winter wear ... lol.

Be that as it may, I ask Y.O.U., my loyal Livestyle readership, how could I NOT post the magnificence that is the Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co.'s recently unveiled collection @ (capsule) Paris 2010? I'm waiting for an answer. Huh? That's right, I couldn't allow such a worthwhile range of dope down jackets and vest to go unacknowledged.

As usual, their latest offering seamlessly blends excellent and extremely functional production quality with just the right amount of mature sophistication. The resulting achievement is that of looking like a wealthy lumberjack! LOL.

Now, while researching this entry this morning (NOTE: No, I don't simply lazily copy-and-paste other website's articles like soooooooooo many other blogs do. I pride myself on doing my homework ... although my former school teachers would certainly beg to differ ... lol) it has come to my attention that the original Jackson, Wyoming Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co. folded their feather filled quilted comforters a long time ago and that what we see today are actually pristine Japanese reproductions of classic O.G. styles with a twist of modernity. Hey, no beef here homie. The Japan based company that took over this label has done nothing but justice to the Rocky Mountain Featherbed Co. name and have made it a darling of the advanced underground fashion scene. America's "Ski Country" never looked so fly. Good show!

Justin Combs Celebrates His "Super Sweet 16" Birthday With Nicki Minaj x A Maybach @ M2 In NYC 01/23/10.

(NOTE: Ummmmmmmmmmm, is it just me or, in these pictures from his "My Super Sweet 16" bash, does Justin "I Am Prince" Combs exhibit Drake-like facial features? #imjustsaying)

Information Courtesy Of: RealtalkNY.Net x CaviNYC.Com

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Soooooooooooo, am I to assume that along with receiving a beautiful Maybach for his 16th Birthday that Diddy also gave his son Justin his very 1st STD courtesy of Nicki Minaj as well? Maybe she gave him "asbestos"? LOL. I keed. I keed. I got L.O.V.E. for "Cookie".

Don't mind me yall, I'm probably just spilling a dash of sour grapes because my 16th Birthday consisted of a Carvel® ice cream cake (Delicious!), birthday cards from my family (Righteous!), some generous toppage from my then girlfriend (*Cue Dick Vitale Voice* "Awesome with a capital 'A' baby!") and a call from my P.O. ... or something like that ... lol. No cars for me though. Hey, come to think of it, I've done pretty darn well! My Dad aint Diddy, but he cooks a mean and vicious Shrimp Scampi. He's the man! No complaints here my friends. Do your thing young Justin. Cheers!

Lil Wayne - Money On Mind (Unreleased)(Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: For some inexplicable reason this video has been collecting dust and Jordan Tower Films just jumped up and decided to release it now. Whatever. This is the Lil Wayne that we ALL know and L.O.V.E. Better late than never homie. Good shit!
