Remix The Runway Archives
Buddefli.com also got a chance to catch up with the beautiful Keri Hilson at Chicago's Remix The Runway event in Millenium Park and asked the question "what advice would you give to up an coming singer?". As you can see, we focused on just the above question while our new partners in crime talked about a variety of topics on Miss Keri Baby's upcoming music in their interview, brought back below.
Keri Hilson Interview w/ Gowhere Hip Hop
Single off upcoming album, Second Chance *MG Fav.™
Here's a quick interview for ya ears as El DeBarge talks why you should get his upcoming album 'Second Chance' due this November 30th. This album is definitely going to be a family pleaser, as I'm sure you already know the man can sing! I know that first hand as he blew away the Chicago audience when he performed at The Shrine not too long ago; check out the photo recap in case you missed it. Jen DeLeon also got a chance to talk some quick fashion with El DeBarge for Remix The Runway, as his most notable statement appreciated Lady Gaga's unique fashion experimentation saying, "I like it when Lady Gaga wears meat, you know what I mean? I like it when she go crazy like that and wear meat that's cool right?" Ha it sure is, I appreciate her meat dress - she definitely gives a hard edge to pop and fashion alike! Lastly check out El DeBarge's single "Second Chance" above to get a preview of what to expect on the album, and remember to vote for him come November 30th in the store!

The Capo was on deck at this past weekend performing for the Harris Theater audience at Remix The Runway! Lara Phillips caught up with him to talk about his fresh fit in honor of the event, and got a chance to ask about his recent mixtape Capo Life featuring artists like Cam'ron, Sen City, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Sean Garrett, Juelz Santana, Vado, and Yo Gotti. Jim Jones says that he's been recording for over a year and a half straight, and to expect his album Capo in stores this coming February alluding that it will feature collabs from Jadakiss, Raekwon, Trey Songz, Sean Garrett, Cam'ron, and Snoop Dogg.
I'm excited to see Jim Jones making moves again, and the Diplomats getting back together for a concert reunion. They were a powerful movement back in the day, I'm still waiting on Killa Season 2! I used to listen to Hustler's P.O.M.E. my freshman year of college in the art school dorms with my guy D. It was official. Well expect more from Jim Jones with his own TV Show? Until then check out capolife.com (if it's up by now), and follow the man @jimjonescapo!

Jeremih was in the building at Remix The Runway giving a dope performance at the Harris Theater alongside a runway of beautiful models. One of the records he sang was "Down On Me" f/ 50 Cent, which is what all the buzz has been about lately. If you haven't heard fellow Chicagoan Keenan Cahill and 50 Cent jumped on a youtube video lip synching the whole record. Right now the video is at almost 7 million views, and our own Lara Phillips was on hand to ask Jeremih for his response to Keenan Cahill's video below.
"Even on itunes it went from 22 to #7 in a matter of overnight!" ~Jeremih
ATTN Jeremih! I know I forgot to tell you this @ Remix The Runway, but take my million $ advice and put Keenan Cahill in the official music video for "Down On Me" that you're shooting for all the free help he's given you! Switching gears to the rest of the interview, Jeremih talked about a whole array of great things in the works touching on his collaborations with Big Sean! Jeremih compares Big Sean's skills to that of Drake and anyone on that level, when speaking on a new record they did together called "Old School Pontiac" f/ Paul Wall. Jeremih stated that the collab will fall onto his upcoming mixtape, however they still have something for Sean's album too. Be sure to follow @Jeremih for the latest news, and get his ablum All About You which I'm still vibing to in my rotation.
I wish nothing but success for the talented Chicago R&B artist, but what I wish for him more than that is for people to pronounce his name right! JK Haha even Lil Rel the host at Remix For Runway pronounced it Jeremiah with the extra "ah". It's funny how people add in extra bits of information here and there, but honestly I would just let it go and let people say it however they want to say it. Keep it locked on GWHH for more from Remix The Runway. Enjoy!

The Remix The Runway showcase went down last night headlined by none other than the beautiful Keri Hilson! Immediately off first impression she's got this warm self confidence about her that lights up everyone around her. I could sense an appreciation and love for every moment from her, which was one of the most captivating elements of meeting Keri Hilson. Jen DeLeon sat down with her to talk an array of topics starting with her views of who she thinks is the most fashionable rapper today. She then spoke on the empowering themes behind her upcoming album No Boys Allowed, and the hardest look she had to pull off in the making of her video "Pretty Girl Rock". Lastly Keri touched on the chemistry she has with Kanye when working in the studio on the recent G.O.O.D. Friday release of "Take One For The Team". I can't wait to get her album December 21st right in time for the holidays! Check out what Keri has to say in the video above, and be sure to drop her some kind words @MissKeriBaby. 'No Boys Allowed' due 12.21.10.
