Jay-z and Alicia Keys are set to hit the stage and perform “Empire State of Mind” for the World Series Game 2 as the New York Yankees host the Phillies.  This track off Jay’s platinum selling Blueprint 3 album serves as the theme song for every New Yorker and what’s better than a live performance from the hometown artists themselves.

Hopefully, Lil Mama isnt around or this time Jay-z and Alicia Keys will need extra security!! lol

Is there anything Beyonce isn’t good at? LOL but really is there?  She sold countless album w/ her group Destiny’s Child and has had great success as a solo artist.  This year she was named “Woman of the Year” by Billboard magazine.  She will receive her honor on Oct. 2nd at Billboard’s annual Women in Music Event in NYC.  This year alone, Beyonce starred in the #1 movie Obsessed, had her own arena tour, and sand at President Obama’s inaugaration.

Timbaland, the super producer has made hits for everybody, I mean everybody.  He’s produced for the Justin Timberlake, The Pussycat Dolls, Nelly Furtado, Jay-z, One Republic, P. Diddy, Danity Kane, The Game, Brandy, Ginuwine, Aaliyah, Missy Elliott, LL Cool J, Rihanna, Omarion, Brittney Spears and a host of other big name artists.  But he’s still hungry to conquer more mountains standing in his way and he hasn’t forgot where he first began: his music.

That’s why he’s teamed up w/ Rockstar Games to create “Beaterator”.  It comes out for PSP & Playstation (sorry XBOX gamers) on Sept 29th & Oct 2nd.  Rockstar had this to say about their new game: “Featuring thousands of loops and sounds made by both Timbaland and Rockstar, Beaterator puts the power to make professional-level music at your fingertips in a format that’s portable, accessible and fun as anyone can now create great-sounding music.”  Here’s the trailer for the “Beaterator”!!!

Look out Guitar Hero, you may have some competition in the future lol

Even Kanye Will Work for Free

Even though Kanye didn’t graduate from college, that hasn’t stopped him from getting the college experience.  After creating multiple successful albums, countless hours of touring, and producing for some of the biggest stars, Kanye West is taking time to work for free w/ The Gap Clothing Line.  He’s doing a summer internship w/ the Gap, w/ hopes of sharpening his skills for fashion design .  The Chicago Tribune reports ” He’s working side-by-side with pal designer and creative director Patrick Robinson, who was reportedly hired to spruce up the label.”  He’s already been successful at creating Air Yeezy’s w/ Nike and Louis Vutton casual shoes as well.  Maybe he’ll get a clothing line from this deal.

For those that don’t know, internships allow people to gain first-hand experiences w/ a given company, seeing what it’s like to actually work in the field of your dreams before it actually happens.  Many times college students work as interns over the summer to gain experience, background knowledge, and most importantly connections into the job fields they wish to engage in for the future.  They can be really great resources as sometimes interns get offered jobs before there summer is up.  Networking is key in any job field and internships can be essential toward future employment
