Didn’t think I’d see a performance video from Dr. Dre this early on in the year. He got up and performed at DJ Stevie J’s birthday party at LIV in Miami. Look forward to more performance footage from the doc in April. He will be performing with Snoop Dogg at Coachella. West!

Man, I think I’ve watched this video about three times before this post. Sanji did an amazing job directing David Guetta’s video for “Turn Me On” featuring a human-like-doll-who-comes-to-life Nicki Minaj. Dope video! Reminds me of a Bjork video I once saw.

Directed by Sanji.

The unstoppable Busta Rhymes releases his latest high-budgeted visual featuring Chris Brown, “Why Stop Now.”
