Not really. It just looks like it.

Go ahead and call me late, but tell me this doesn’t look like the love child The Matrix and the Billie Jean video would have.

This looks like a winning team to me. I know how you all eat up the R Les studio videos too (with good reason). If Ryan Leslie wants to double the views he already gets on his studio videos, I recommend putting Keri Hilson in all of them, even if she’s not contributing on the track.

No charge for that marketing tip either, Ryan.

There’s rare moments in swag that need to be recognized. With that said, I’d like to introduce you to 2ManyMC’s newest series, “Great Moments in Swag.”

Along with the words below, B Nyce and I have put together a video companion to show you what we’re talking about, complete with video annotations and bubbles. It’s like Pop-Up video… on the internet, and much more hip-hop.

Some people say the word swag is thrown around too much these days. I agree. However, it’s the swag-less who throw the word around to the point where we’ve gotten sick of it. I’m here to take it back. Like Rat Pack back.

In a day and age where swag has become a word to describe how cool you think your bright throwback crewneck is, we need to remember what swag really is. There’s really no better embodiment of what makes that grown man swagger than the first minute of Ryan Leslie’s video for “Diamond Girl.”

No, it’s not just what Ryan Leslie’s wearing you insecure metros. It’s his walk, his tardiness for his own show and complete disregard for it. Just look at the video itself. It’s enough to make Old Blue Eyes proud.

Download: Jim Jones ft. Ryan Leslie- Precious

Here’s what’s being called the newest single from Jim Jones’ upcoming album, Pray IV Reign. Nah Right is calling it “possibly” the first, but I swore the other day on MTV that they had the Ron Brownz joint “Pop Champagne” credited to Pray IV Reign.

My first impression of this is pretty decent too. It never hurts with me to have R Les on your track (and presumably producing you). Not being a die-hard Dipset stan, I think I can say with objectivity that Jim Jones has definitely been one of those rappers who you can chart their growth through their records; with very publicized records at that. He may not be Biggie or L, but tell me he’s not in that top 5 of most recognizable voices in hip-hop today.

Thanks to Nah Right for the track.

Download: LL Cool J ft. Ryan Leslie- Like a Radio

New track from LL’s upcoming album, Exit 13. I wasn’t going to post this, but since Ryan Leslie is on the track, I felt obligated. R’Les for pres after all.

It’s sure as hell a better choice than McCain/Palin.

props to nah right
