I thought Beyoncé was the queen of videos but Wale just might have her beat. Mr. Ambition drops another video for “Barry Sanders” plus a teaser to his label mate’s upcoming video. Keep them coming Wale!
Wale must be feeling extra giving. This is the third visual he gives us this week and I’m not complaining. Dedicated to all of the “ambitious girls”, Wale’s official video tribute has been released and packaged with a Ambitious Girl t-shirt and necklace bundle! The bundle cost $39.99 and can be purchased at www.ralphfolarin.com
Yet another one from the Ambition rapper Wale this week. Wale and MMG leader Rick Ross take us to the tattoo parlor for Wale’s newest video “Tatts On My Arm”. The visual was directed by Dre Films.
It’s no doubt that Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb” is a hit. Some have argued that Wale went too MMG on us but it is clear that this Miguel assisted track is classic Wale. Finally, Wale gives us the visual to the song we all love so much. America’s Next Top Model Bre plays Wale’s love interest and together the pair took me back to Poetic Justice for a moment. Enjoy!
America’s Next Top Model Cycle 5 contest Bre Scullark may have been recently booted from ANTM All-Star but she is proving to be a star without the show. Bre will be the front girl in Wale’s “Lotus Flower Bomb” video featuring Miguel. In the video shot last week, Wale plays a delivery man whose crushing on a salon owner who will be played by Bre. The sneak peek photos from the shoot look hot and steamy so, I’m assuming the story line ends well and Wale is a happy man in the end.
With the release of his sophomore album, Wale has been super busy but his video co-star also has a packed schedule. Word around the net is Bre has a lot coming up. Look for her in an upcoming role on CSI, an Old Navy campaign, on Tyler Perry’s new sitcom ‘For Better Or Worse’ and Garnier commercials. For now, peep two shots from the pair below.
I haven’t heard much from this bad girl songstress since she came to Hampton University my freshman year in 2006 and pranced around the stage grabbing her crotch confessing how much she needed a boss. Shareefa is back and just released a song titled, Ya Love. Raheem Devaughn is featuring on this track. I think it is the perfect summer love song. Listen below.

Pure is an R&B artist from Newark, NJ. A night at the club in Jersey isn’t complete if the DJ doesn’t play his latest hit, Body Talk. I have to admit when I heard Body Talk, I just knew Pure was going to be a one hit club wonder but after listening to more of his stuff I have changed my mind. He might get a little more than 15 minuets of fame. We shall see but for now here is featuring Red Cafe, the latest effort from Pure. Oh, and because I love you all so much I have posted Body Talk, as a Press Play Thursday Bonus Track. Body Talk is old news for you Jersey natives but for all of you outside of the garden state it’s a gift. Press play and enjoy!

So you should know by now that Wale is releasing a mixtape on August 3rd. The countdown for More About Nothing has already begun but until the release date occupy your ears with The Eyes Of The Tiger, a very new track inspired by Tiger Woods and his infamous sex scandal. The song is kind of funny but its real talk.
Wale – “The Eyes Of The Tiger”
One of GMPR‘s favorite rapper, Wale, is returning to our speakers with the drop of his new mixtape. More About Nothing is the sequel to his 2008’s The Mixtape About Nothing and drops August 3rd. Although very popular, mixtapes are nothing new but making commercials and promos for your mixtape is. You know how we do it at GMPR…we have to without a doubt give Wale major PR points for the commercials.
I am so excited to bring you new music this Thursday. With an interesting mix of music, there is enough to keep you occupied for at least 15 minuets. When you press play I am almost positive that you won’t be disappointed. Up first is Kingpen Slim.
Kingpen Slim, a DC artist , is too busy to beat his feet because he is working hard to bring us music we can bop to. He labels his music different and you know how much GMPR loves different. He says, “I like to call it ‘up south’. Being from DC we’re right in the middle and my music reflects that.” Kingpen Slim is for sure an artist to watch for. Major labels are interested so it shouldn’t be long before we hear a lot more from him. His newest single, “The Way You Move”, has an old school feel and it is super smooth. Check it out below…press play.

We have heard a lot from the sisters of Nina Sky in the past, both good and bad. There is not much to say about the vocals in their newest single, “You Ain’t Got It (Funk That)”, but there is a lot to say about the feel of the song. Listen for yourself and tell me what you think.
Nina Sky- “You Ain’t Got It (Funk That)”
Last Thursday, I introduced your ears to “Bottoms Up”, the first single off of Trey Songz new upcoming album. Although I thought it was a decent party song, It hasn’t been getting great feedback on the net. Many say “I Want You”, a track that has been surfing around the net, is more like the Trey everybody knows and loves. I like it. Do you?
Trey Songz – “I Want You”
GMPR is completely and utterly in love with this song by Rudy Currence. Currence is often compared to legends like Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye but I have no doubt that he would fit in with the likes of Neyo and John Legend. He has released two full length albums independently through Mike Chek Entertainment and has recently signed with DTP Records. He should be releasing a new album very soon but for now check out his newest single, “Anymore”. Also, learn more about the R&B singer by clicking here.
