Respect The Architects: #NP: Public Enemy - Can't Truss It (Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: "One love who said it? I know Whodini sang it, but the hater taught hate, that's why we gang bangin'. Beware of the hand when it's comin' from the left ... I ain't trippin' just watch your step ..." Indeed, what Chuck D lacked in elaborate, nimble-tongued lyricism he MORE than made up for in sheer substantive impact. Never get caught sleeping on the job brothers and sisters. Happy Black History Month ... over and out.

Hey, Man ... We've All Been There.

Young Jeezy x Ne-Yo Perform "Leave You Alone" Live On Conan 02/28/12.

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: QUESTION: If it's Tuesday, February 28, 2012 and your name is Young Jeezy and you're full stride in the midst of running a promotional victory lap celebrating your latest retail musical installment, "TM 103: A Hustlaz Ambition" having just gone gold in only it's 5th week of release, what do Y.O.U. do with your night? ANSWER: Y.O.U. take your unique brand of motivational speaking talents to TBS and deliver a rousing televised speech for #TeamCoco , that's what!

Last night, after having chopped it up with the inimitable Betty White backstage, Mr. "All White Everything" himself, accompanied by cue-ball impersonator/contemporary crooner Ne-Yo, hit the stage to give Conan O'Brien and his audience a little "G.L.C." (NOTE: That is simply a timely and very specific to this entry appropriate acronym for "Ganxta Love and Care" and bears no relation to that rapper from Chicago. Y.O.U. know ... that guy who is kinda down with G.O.O.D. Music, but Y.O.U. don't really know who he is ... you're just faintly familiar with his name. Yeah! That guy! LOL) with his current single "Leave You Alone". My nigga is doing his thug thizzle! Where all the naysayers @ now? Hoes. C.T.E. Wooooooooooooorld!


CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Woooooooo hoooooooooooo! According to the pretty much universally accepted and O.G. respected Gregorian calendar (NOTE: Go Christianity!), as occurs every 4 years in the interest of keeping our astronomical or seasonal year all celestially synchronized and shit, today is the day that we tack on an extra day to the month of February; giving us ALL 1 more day to NOT really celebrate Black History Month ... lol.

Yup, you've now been awarded a bonus 366th day to lament having squandered - like 99% of your other days - as you look back upon this year and take a deep personal audit of your time management skills come New Year's Eve 2013. Fun! Fun! Fun! HAPPY LEAP YEAR 2012 from Amy Adams, Matthew Goode and Livestyle!

#NP: Nirvana - Negative Creep

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: And Y.O.U. thought it was only Hip Hop on this side, right? SMH. Yall niggas is really slippin' yo. Fix up and look sharp lads and lassies! "Daddy's little girl aint a girl no more ..."  We str8 dismantling hoes over here homie ... lol.  This is Livestyle!

Kevin Hart AKA Chocolate Droppa 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend Freestyle Live @ The Ballroom @ Church Street In Orlando, FL @ DJPROSTYLETV.

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: "I roll by myself! I thought you knew ... I'm a little nigga standing on pink shit too ..." LOL. #BARS

Waka Flocka Flame Ft. Drake - Round Of Applause (Official Music Video)(Uncut Version)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: We want more #BOOTYMEAT and less talking in this video! I mean, really, there is clearly NO logical reason whatsoever for anyone to feel so compelled as to complicate matters by introducing a convoluted cinematic sub-plot when crafting a visual for a song that is explicitly about nothing more than enjoying the ripe, jiggling fruits of strippers! Thank Y.O.U. very much. Now, all of that having been said, this shit is still cool ... lol. Good shit!

The Official LiveStyle 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend G-Cap: A Mini-Movie, Some Jeremy Evans Dunks x A Glass Of "ROZAY!"




CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: This past weekend the annual circus of exhibitionism that is NBA All-Star Weekend came to Orlando, FL, bringing with it the usual A-Z list celebrities spilling out of luxury rental clown cars, stilt-walking treasure hunting groupies with shovels and metal detectors in hand and throngs of severely dehydrated star gazers that have all become synonymous with this 3-day baller binge.

What on the surface is intended to be a yearly mid-season showcase of the league's most electrifying talent has now effectively taken shape as a premiere "Theatre of the Nouveau Riche" upon whose stage Hip Hop's modern adaptation of "Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely" plays itself out - both literally AND figuratively.

But, I digress. Between all of the posturing of dope boys and girls that saved up @ least 6 months to make this pilgrimage to Playerdom, the credit card fraudsters swiping their way to $30,000 plus bottle service tabs @ Roxy, L.A.X. or Terrace 390 (NOTE: Pick a club! Any club!), walking-promo rappers and 20 lab crafted superwhores for every man, make no mistake, there was some SERIOUS fun going on! LOL. Here's a video recap of the festivities. Cheers!

Curren$y - Livin (Official Music Video)(Off That "Here" EP Available For Download NOW!)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Yup, Shyne (NOTE: Pre the bizarre jailhouse Orthodox Judaism conversion where, upon obedient adoption of his new faith, they apparently performed the traditional ritual of Bris Milah on his vocal chords!?) would be proud. #Jetlife

2 Chainz Ft. Jadakiss - One Day At A Time (Official Music Video)(Directed By Jim Jones)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Yeah, yeah, yeah. So, of course, any contemporary Hip Hop aficionado worth his/her salt is no doubt familiar with the appellation "Jimmy From 5H" - a reverent designation bestowed upon Jim "Last Man Standing For Chrissy Lampkin" Jones by his childhood friend Cam'ron in recognition of his humble Harlem beginnings in an apartment demarked "5H". Get it? Got it? Good.

However, now, in 2012, allow me to formally submit the possibility that the very same "H" in "5H" is evolving and, in the not too distant future, may come to represent much more than an apartment number. Indeed, the honorable letter "H" when mentioned in association with Jim Jones may come to mean "Hype" ... as in Hype Williams. Nahh, let me chill ... but it IS nice to see Mr. "Love And Hip Hop" get back behind the camera lens and diversify his artistic portfolio. I mean, I don't think Y.O.U. could really put "I'm not a tough guy, but I play one on T.V." on your resume, right? Yeeeeeeeeeah, probably not. LOL.

Oohh, lest I forget boys and girls ... this song itself meets the standard for a schedule I narcotic and thereby legitimately qualifies as a controlled substance. Don't push the "SNOOZE" button on the homie 2Chainz too hastily either my nigga ... especially since he kinda DOES body Jadakiss (NOTE: Who clearly smoked a zip of "Dour" and "mailed it in" on his verse, but still.) on this track. ".40 hit 'em, leave 'em wet ... baptized ... and you know I'ma sucker for long hair and wet thighs ..." Wooooooooooooooo! That's that real "Codeine Cowboy" talk right thurr boy! LOL. Good shit!

Tyga Ft. Wale, Fabolous, Young Jeezy, Meek Mill x T.I. - Rack City (Remix)(Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Not that I care in the least bit, but, apparently a terrific feat of scheduling magic was performed in making this video allowing both eager-to-please-the-"BAWSE" M.M.G. upstarts, Meek Mill and Wale, to kinda co-exist with Young Jeezy on this joint. I say "kinda" because, well, niggas aint never share a shot together. *Cue Kanye Shrug* Whatevs. No lives are being changed with this video boys and girls. It is what it is.

Kanye West's "Say You Will" Freestyle Live In Melbourne, Australia = Trojan® MAGNUM® #Realityrap

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: After nearly accidentally killing his fast flourishing career as a result of his much publicized Antares© Auto-Tune™ erotic asphyxiation addiction during the recording of his surely emotionally cathartic, albeit artistically jumbled album, "808's And Heartbreaks" and subsequently recovering from said problematic proclivity, Mr. West, Mr. West briefly fell off the wagon last night and tempted fate with this hilariously honest robo-voiced 7 minute-plus "freestyle" over "Say You Will" @ a tour stop in Melbourne, Australia.

The REAL "Lamestream Media" (NOTE: Yeah, fuck Y.O.U. Sarah Palin! I took your cretinous catchphrase and flipped it. Y.O.U. made it a hot Fox News soundbyte ... I made it a hot addition to my post ... lol.) tried to Taylor Swift-boat this young man's livelyhood after he bumrushed the stage of the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards show, but with endearing real nigga waiting-on-my-latenight-slide lines like, "I left the door cracked open ... New ... New York City is dangerous! I could've been robbed!", the hood has no choice but to ride for Chi-Town's Finest! Message To Newport™ 100's Chain-Smoking Svedka Robot Girl AKA Ms. Amber Rose: Are Y.O.U. listening to this baby? Good shit!

Rick Ross - High Definition (Official Music Video)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Excuse me, but is that Keyshia Dior, Claudia "Yes, I Am Reggie Bush's Kim Kardashian Replacement Killer" Sampedro AND Tammy "The Bain Of Lil Wayne's Existence" Torres that I spy co-starring in this video all scantily clad and ready to shag!? IT IS? Welp, sign me and my inappropriate thoughts right on up! I mean, really ... just sit back and absorb the full artistic value of Señor Rozay's latest dope boy decadent visual. Press play and prepare to witness a trio of video vixens in striking possession of both beauty AND brains. Where your average work-a-day electrician sees nothing more than a handy all-weather roll of black adhesive tape, these brilliant bitches see an outfit! Genius! It's gonna be a long night ... lol. HAPPY FAT TUESDAY! "BAAAAAAAAAAAAWSE!"

French Montana Ft. Charlie Rock, Diddy x Rick Ross - Shot Caller (Remix)(Official Music Video)

The Supreme Spring/Summer 2012 "Kate Moss" T-Shirt = I Want. The Nike Air Foamposite One "Galaxy All-Star" = Not So Much.

Certainly none of us can say we didn’t see it coming: Kate Moss joins the pantheon of Dipset, Lou Reed, Kermit the Frog, Mike Tyson and Chef Raekown as the newest celebrity to grace the front of a Supreme photo tee (though this officially marks the third go-round for the model and the New York-based skate label). It’s a safe bet that the tee will sell out within a few hours once Supreme opens for business this Thursday (and continue to sell out as the store restocks throughout the weekend), so if you’re unable to get your hands on one at least there are a host of other graphic tees on offer, the majority of which features understated designs built around the Supreme logo.

Release Dates:

February 23rd, 2012 (Thursday) – NY, LA, & London

February 25th, 2012 (Saturday) – Japan

March 1st, 2012 (Thursday) – Online

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: Amazingly, a recent sub-cultural tectonic plate shift has occurred in the messageboard fueled frenzied world of streetwear mania: The heretofore unchallengeable exigent importance of a brand new Supreme New York collection drop looks to be rivaled, if not entirely surpassed, by that of this Saturday's Nike Air Foamposite One "Galaxy All-Star" release. Whoa!

Both brands have an impressive history of drawing huge crowds of Thirst McGurst Trendoids ready to wait on line, OUTSIDE(!) over night for a chance to purchase their respective goods with each big release, however, this time the stakes are a bit higher. This time - because although releasing 2 days apart, one needs to wait on line just to secure a wristband to then wait on yet another surely D.epartment of M.otor V.ehicles-sized line to even get a shot @ purchasing the "Galaxy All-Star"s when they do officially drop - these release dates will effectively overlap thereby throwing the Hypebeast space-time continuum out of whack! Indeed, time is of the essence.

So now, as this asshole apocalypse looms ever near, the question becomes: With the Supreme Spring/Summer 2012 Collection (NOTE: Anchored by the indisputably #HeroinChic defined Supreme signature celebrity-as-ironic-spokesmodel Kate Moss tee) debuting bright and early this Thursday morning, February 23, 2012 and the aforementioned Foamposites on deck 48 hours later for the morning of February 25, 2012, what's an easily influenced, individuality deficient Hipster to do? Decisions, decisions.

I'll tell Y.O.U. what, while everyone else is having their objective realities irreparably mangled in the rusty gears of quantum mechanics and dealing with the pressing metaphysical conundrums associated with this weekend's impending parallel universe split that threatens to shatter the whole Trendoid macrocosm into multi-shards of competing banality, I think that I'ma just sit this 1 out. I want my Kate Moss t-shirt. I give 0 fux about another pair of overhyped Foams though! The sneaker game is ALL fucked up now. SMH. Message To Supreme NYC: I have a date with destiny @ your online shop come 12:01AM March, 1, 2012. Let's get it!

Soooooooooooooooo, this is the line of desperately dehydrated individuals that formed outside of 21 Mercer Street yesterday in hopes of merely getting their hands on the wristband that will guarantee their dumb ass place on line to purchase the Nike Air Foamposite One "Galaxy All-Star"s come this Saturday, February 25, 2012. Word? FUCK OUTTA HERE!

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: But, hold up. Where the fuck did this nigga find Timbaland @ though? *Cue Kanye Shrug* I dunno. Whatevs. "BAAAAAAAAAAAAWSE!"

Happy Valentine's Day 2012 AKA The "Play Smarter" Gospel According To Chris Live.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
(NOTE: Yup, my nigga Ralph Wiggum definitely knows what time it is!)

CHRIS LIVE AKA SHAKER SAYS: My ill feelings towards the ruthless corporatization that has fiendishly transmuted the once holy St. Valentine's Day into simply yet another hallmark of Hallmark® greeting card avirice aside, I still got maaaaaaaaad L.O.V.E. for this holiday! Allow me to break it down homie.

See, where most men render a sad Pavlovian-like "heart-shaped box of chocolate accompanied by a requisite bouquet of flowers" response to this intimacy-by-proof-of-purchase (NOTE: NOT to be confused with ye "oldest profession in the world" ... @ least ideally ... lol) impetus, I, on the other hand, enjoy taking this opportunity to let the woman in my life know just how special to me she is and doing so in a special way. And, please be clear, this is most certainly NOT about going on a spending spree. In fact, on the real, I might fuck around and spend even less than usual today.

Why? Because, my idea of romance is a brilliant mixture of thoughtfulness and timing. I'm not out here trying to just carelessly hurl my trusty Louis Vuitton Damier print wallet into the price gouger's pit and overpay for some random ass generic gift! Nahh shorty, I'm trying to show Y.O.U. that I pay attention ... and that's what's truly priceless.  L.O.V.E. should be a 24/7, 365 thing ... Valentine's Day is just the All-Star Game baby ... lol.  Can Y.O.U. dig it?  Y.O.U. can?  Good,  I knew that Y.O.U. could AND that Y.O.U. would.  Now, make daddy proud.  This is Livestyle!
