Last week, someone pretending to be the director for Jay-Z’s new video, Run This Town, put out a “director’s commentary track” providing fake insight behind the scenes of the big single off of The Blueprint 3. Now, we don’t claim to have helmed Run This Town, but we have a pretty good idea of what’s going on. This week, we present Run This Town (Official Directors’ Commentary).
In front of my old cubicle, the guys from Slaughterhouse ask XXL EIC Vanessa Satten how many shots a dude gets to make a…lasting impression.

I was digging this video because it sorta reminded me of the "Bad Boy Era" of music videos where the video felt more like a piece of cinema than just a visual aid to a song.
This video was ALRIGHT, nothing really special. Reminded me of The Dream's video for "I Luv Your Girl". Not really a fan of the change up in the beat towards the end.

Fresh off our Atlanta excursion we have a new Drive-By Review. This edition we take a look at the HIGHLY anticipated "Off The Wall" mixtape by Esso. Now this is a joint i've been looking forward to, let's see if the team is digging it.
NOTE: Excuse the sound quality...it was TOOOOO hot to close the windows
Follow Esso on Twitter @Hiesso
Well, im sure most of you have noticed the lack of post recently. Well see what had happened was, Par-City took alil Vaca for some R&R (and a few strippers), and i kinda sorta forgot to post a message up here letting my fellow citizens know that we'll be gone. Never no mind that though, we're back and back on the grind, so you can expect alot more content coming soon.

Mickey stops the feed for a bit and they go live again with this.
Apparently, someone (NOT Raekwon) gave Joey a lump around his right eye. Watching the live feed myself after the altercation Joey was heard talking with his team about what happened and then gets a phone call from who im ASSUMING was a fellow member of Slaughterhouse.
Joey mutes the volume while on the phone, comes back and tells everyone to get they popcorn cause its about to be a show. the live feed is paused again (and for the rest of the night im assuming, i fell asleep)
Bout a hour later, right before Slaughterhouse is set to perform, all of this takes place backstage.
And everyone goes home unharmed...well except for ol Mouse here....anyway Mickey Factz gives his side of what happened when the camera went off, or Pause'd (no pun intended)
Esso is the homie and Puma is incredible. I cant wait for Esso's "Off The Wall" project to drop, this along with the other track i've heard off the project, "Girlfriend", both sound good. So be on the look out for that.
I gotta say "Till The Casket Drops" is definitely slowly becoming a MUST HAVE for me. I've been liking what i've been hearing and this video is dope to me, love the background in the Pharrell X Clipse shots.
"Till The Casket Drops" in stores this October.

Jay-Z "The Blueprint 3"
I dont know if this was intentional or not, but pretty cool nonetheless taking bits and pieces from other places.
Spotted @ Idolator.com
The footage of Drake figuratively and literally hitting the stage last week has been studyed and examined from more angles than the Zapruder film. Luckily, ItsTheReal.com is here to provide a new perspective - crude animation - in our, ahem, homage to Broken Equipment: C’est la Vie, Drake.
