Music Video: Casey Veggies - Whip It

The first time I heard Casey Veggies a few years ago I wasn't too impressed. So from there I wasn't really checking for his music. However, upon the release of his 2013 Life Changes mixtape, I kept hearing how dope it was. So just a few months ago I decided to download it and give it a listen.

Low and behold, it had me from the very first track! LC is full of bangers and Veggies seems to have definitely matured as an MC since the last time I gave his music a chance.

Peep his latest music video for the track "Whip It," which is my favorite joint on the mixtape. It was produced by: D.R.U.G.S and the video was directed by Zack Warren of Wingtip Media.

Movie Trailer: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

It's pretty dope that my 3 year old son is a fan of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He watches the new CGI TMNT cartoon that airs on Nickelodeon. He also has a Ninja Turtles lunch pail. Now he's hyped about the Jonathan Liebesman directed and Michael Bay produced movie that will be dropping on August 8, 2014.

There's no telling whether or not this movie will be any good or if it will be too much for my 3 year old, but hey at least Megan Fox is in it, starring as April O'Neil! Check the short trailer.
