The show was broadcast live to millions via YouTube from a packed Apollo and the main man did not disappoint as he opening with the massive hit OMG and followed with a host of number ones and new material from the forthcoming album, Looking 4 Myself, including Climax. (For all of you that don’t have it yet can buy it at itunes here).

Fans were able to tweet to Usher via the hashtag #AmexUNSTAGED and throughout the show Usher would (verbally) repsond to the tweets as well as having the displayed on stage. It was a performance full energy and even had the obligatory ‘Man About Town Moment’ – the top off shot. Although brief the crowd seemed to approve!

Chris Brown Tweet war with Cher

Posted in Music with tags , , , , on June 7, 2012 by Eray

Chris Brown is the latest celebrity to take to twitter to spark a war. A tweet that was taken down (standard practise for a tweet war these days) was a tweet aimed at singer Cher after she went on a twitter rant slamming Mitt Romney and Barak Obama.

From the looks of the below, Chris must be a fan of Twitter.
What happened to speaking like adults? What would Biggie and Tupac have done if Twitter was around when they were at war #thatswhyIf**kedyob**chyoufatmotherf***er, #eastside # Westside.
It seems everyone is brave on twitter but wonder what would happen if all these people got into the same room.

it would be great if they had a twitter battle only using their own song titles…

Cher: Chris you are a gypsy, tramp and a theif

Chris: Well excuse me miss, you are not a beautiful people (you get the drift.
Check out the deleted tweet below:

Today I thought I’d share the track I think will be the big summer song for 2012.

Shot in Acapulco, Mexico and features the lovely Jennifer Lopez alongside Reggaeton artists Wisin Y Yandel.

Check out J-Lo with her holiday braided hair style and henna tattoo’s!

2pac lives on – as a hologram anyway

Posted in Music, Tech & Gadgets with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2012 by Eray

Check out the awesome video that has been doing the rounds online from Coachella festival.

It features a hologram of 2pac performing live alongside Snoop (who is real life)

2pac or Tupac Shakur was shot 7 times in September 1996, and after 7 days in hospital he died on Friday 13th September at 4.03pm. (Notice the use of 7 here allot?)

2pac was signed to Deathrow records and part of the East Coast West Coast violence that plagued hip hop in the mid 90’s.

Could this be the future of live concerts? We’ve already seen a Frank Sinatra show using holograms so this could be the future.
I for one would love to see this as I was unfortunate to have never seen 2pac live.

Who could be next? Elvis?

Beyonce smokes cigars

Posted in Cigars, Music with tags , , , , , on April 5, 2012 by Eray

Today Beyonce launched her blog which shows personal snaps taken from her many adventures.

Check out the site here http://beyonce.tumblr.com/

We loved seeing the below picture which shows Beyonce puffing away on a cigar. No doubt Jay-Z was probably thinking “don’t make it wet”

Although judging by the image, she looks like she knows what she is doing.

Being a big Jay-Z fan (because of his rapping and his cigar smoking) I had to share this video with you.

It’s the new commercial for Jay-Z’clothing line Rocawear.

I actually like the jacket towards the end with the ‘Can’t knock my hustle’ embroidery on it.

Check out the video here and check me out soon wearing the jacket haha

LMFAO – Shepard’s Bush Empire Beat Rock App Demo

Posted in Music, Tech & Gadgets with tags , , , , on March 24, 2012 by Eray

So a few weeks ago Cut The Cap got the chance to see LMFAO perform live in London alongside The Far East Movement at their sold out show.

The show was fantastic and cannot recommend it enough. They covered tracks from their first album ‘Party Rock’ as well as all the current big hits from ‘Sorry for Party Rocking’

Sky Blu was unable to attend due to recent back injuries, leaving Redfoo to hold the stage along with the rest of the party rock crew, and he did a good job.

Naturally I wore my Shufflin T-Shirt along with the signature LMFAO glasses (cause I’m a geek like that)

However the talk of the night was at the end when Redfoo gave us a demo of the Party Rock App that we had talked about here a few months ago.

The app allows you remix on the spot and sync the app wirelessly, making you the soul of the party without having to leave the dancefloor.

No news has surfaced as to when this app will be available, or how much, but one things for sure, we will be ready to shuffle when the app goes on release.

We even managed to record the demo for you (apologies for poor quality, but you get the jist of it)

Until we get more info, please enjoy:
