Saturday Video Shout-Out: Hello, Good Morning

Okay let's clear a few things up... I like this song. It's a great song to work out to. I really like TI's section, he's doing his thing. However, I don't understand why the group is called Diddy Dirty Money. I don't understand the purpose of Rick Ross (who is not on the version I downloaded). I don't understand why Diddy is sorta singin' and then decides to break out his own whickety wack rap. Why is Diddy wearing a lower grill. Isn't he 40? How could no one have told him that he can't dance anymore? He kind of strolls around and breaks off half a kick step in front of the girls. The one girl is Dawn from the former group Danity Kane (which Diddy ruined) but who is the other chick?

I also don't understand what the temperature is. In one scene old girl has on a fur vest with leggings. In another she has on drawers and ribbon boots. Is it hot or cold outside? Yo no comprendo or for your French speakers Je ne comprends pas or for the Ebonic among us - I ain't get it. The video is extremely slick looking (as are all of Hype Williams videos) but this one is a Sean John/Ciroc/Whatever kinda car that is commercial... unabashedly.

I still like the song right up until the strange gratuitous I am Diddy still trying to rap and dance moment around the 3:30 mark. Any thoughts? Any new music you're really feeling right now?

Right now in my rotation is B.o.B's The Adventures of Bobby Ray...

And for your Russian readers, "Nee ponimayu". Diddy, Puffy or whatever he calls himself these days should have stopped back in the Mase days.

See your first mistake was trying to make sense of tomfoolery. This is why it remains tomfoolery. You just nod your head either to the beat or in disapproval and keep it moving :-)

My two recommendations:

Hip Hop - Wiz Khalifa Mixtape "Flight School"
R&B - Erykah Badu Song "Window Seat"
Clutch Pick - J. Period's and Nneka's Mixtape "The Madness (Onye-Ala)"

I'm officially old. I've only heard of Erykah Badu out of all of these you just mentioned.

Ok this is the first mention of B.O.B. I heard it was cool so I think I'll listen to the cuts from an anonymous source first before I contemplate buying.

Peace, Love and Chocolate

These are all valid questions but I'll agree with Spk Truth below and just head bop to the beat.
