Jon B. - They Don't Know


Let me first say that Jon B. is the godfather of all things swag. I was hesitant about posting this up at first...because I've loved this song since I was young and my rediscovery of it led me to realize I could only share it with somebody special. But...you're all special. So enjoy.

Laws of Justice


Where do I begin? My mind has been working overtime trying to contemplate how to bring you the best possible music. More new joints coming soon. Shout out to everybody that showed love towards "Left, Right..." You might have a few more "?" moments when it comes to the music I'm currently making, but believe in me. I got y'all. I think people misunderstand that Alive & Vibrant was a conceptual project, and not a reflection of what my entire catalogue would sound like. I've been focusing on actually directly expressing my life, real situations, thoughts and feelings into my new records and I think you'll be able to enjoy it and hopefully some of you will be able to relate. My job is to not let you down. The reason I've been taking so long with this project, as well as the information surrounding it, is because I want it to be special. There's so much music out there nowadays that it's easy to fall through the cracks as an artist, and be in a state of disinterest as a fan.

We deserve better than that right?

I say we because this ride is about us. Anybody that's ever supported me, anybody that's ever told a friend that there's a rapper named Nero that they need to check out; is just as much a part of this process as I am.

As far as my personal life is concerned...I could type for days. 8 million stories from The Rotten Apple. But I'll save it for my music. Everything will come to the light, no stone unturned.

Haters make me seasick, I'm rare like an eclipse
Get on my level, and I'll show you how to be this"

This is one of my favorite music videos ever. The moods and tones set, the lighting, the dance routines. Not to mention that the song is crack. Microphone stand was pretty epic too.

Metaltron Discusses "Nothing"

"I think that the right mentality and good and pure intention is the sexiest thing that I could ever give to a woman. Pure intentions, and good energy about life and reminding her that she’s beautiful. And even if you can’t afford that blouse; or even if you can’t get those flats, please just remember that you’re a human being, and when you do get it, it’s okay. If you’re rich and you already have all those things, just take a step back and say-- I’m a human being, and that makes me beautiful.”

^This.
'Nothing' being the title of the upcoming N*E*R*D* album. Read the rest here.
