This Happened: Heineken Inspire Encore Event at NYC's Pier 36

This past Saturday, November 13, Heineken threw together a last minute party for about 3,000 of their closest, or not so close, friends and fans. Announced only two days prior to the bash, the Inspire Encore event quickly sold out of its free tickets leaving kids wanting to see Pete Rock, Nas, Cee-Lo, Diplo, J. Cole, Black Sheep and more all at the cost of naught. Oh, and they had a ton of free food and beer and surprisingly, was one of the most well-executed events, save for extended set times by performers, which became long long long in the tooth.




I had a blast getting down to some sweet tunes, and hey look at what my man Wes Deezy was sporting on his ears! He rocked a pair of the studio Beats by Dre headphones, which as I am typing this (shameless plug: on my new HP Beats 14 Envy Edition laptop), have also got my killer set on cranking out the music.


Biggest thrill of the day may have been the unannounced inclusion of Black Sheep, which was just...gosh, such a thrill. Hearing The Choice is Yours live in a jam packed pier hangar was beyond anything I could have anticipated, and me and my crew totally fanned out upon his entrance to the stage. Other highlights included: the insanity and forward nature of the crowd around us, J. Cole's rap over a Biggie jawn and Cee-Lo crushing Bright Lights Bigger City with his sexy all girl band.


For more of the fun, check out the select images, video I spliced together on my sweet new machine, or the full gallery of pics here.













Cee-Lo Green - ChamPain (new song!)

Yes!  The velvet-voiced "closet freak" is dishing out more new tunes, and we say thank you sir, tip o' the cap, and plant a mighty *muah* on your hand.




ChamPain comes from Cee-Lo's Stray Bullets mixtape, which is a free full-length download, that you should get in your libraries, like prointo. Grab it here.


Additionally, I'm still super excited for The Lady Killler to finally see a release (sometime later this year), but in the meantime, you can view Green's video for No One's Gonna Love You, which is a cover of Band of Horses' original tune. Watch it!

Cee-Lo Green - Georgia (new song!)

Last month...no wait, today is June. So, back at the end of our 4th month, yes April, the wonderful Gilles Peterson debuted a new Cee-Lo Green track. (yep, he's going by the full moniker pending his "scheduled for late 2010" release, The Lady Killer). I Want You is a summery slice of awesomeness, but it's an even newer cut that's got me all sorts of excited to see what the Closet Freak has in store for the full length.



Georgia pays homage to Green's home state and it's like he took the best of the dark trippy bits of Gnarls Barkley and smoothed 'em under his signature tones.


We like this a lot and think you will too. 


Mmm...horn sections.
