Where is my ‘Motivation’?!

All I have to say is 2:24.

PS The remix with Busta, Trey and Fabolous is also delicious, but the visuals above are FABULOUS.

Alone – G FrSH feat Arrow

“First off I’m self-made, and thanks to that flour you can say that I’m self-raised & I’m my own boss, best know I’m self-paid. I never came to make a difference but I did it with my change”

Black Biscuit – Anonymous

I love this video. One consistent take of creative genius. And an emotive beat too. Dope.

Who You Are – Jessie J

The legend that is Jessie J performs with just a boombox at Times Square in New York.

Who You Are” is the title track from Jessie’s upcoming album. Last month Jessie was announced as the winner of the 2011 BRIT Award’s Critics’ Choice Award! So happy for her, and so grateful to have seen her perform live so many times for free (because soon seeing her live is going to be really expensive!!)

“My message to young people would be ‘BE TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE‘ Do not ever think that it won’t get better. It will. You are not alone” – Jessie J

J.Cole – Losing my Balance

I’ve been thinking and talking about balance a lot recently.

I think it’s so important to live a balanced life.

Saying that I find I’m always struggling to find my own equilibrium.

I live such a multi-faceted life and I’m just one girl.

Don’t lose your balance.
