Big Sean has come a long way in the last few years, and now he celebrates with the official music video for the first single off his debut album, Finally Famous, called “My Last.”
The TAJ-directed clip begins with footage of Sean in the studio five years ago, as he finished his first mixtape, before flash-forwarding to present day, where he sits in an L.A. home in the hills reflecting on his rise from underground rapper to one of the next artists to blow.

Chris Brown went back to the future to shoot the video for “Look at Me Now,” one of the lead singles from his fourth album F.A.M.E. (March 22), in Los Angeles on Wednesday (Feb. 16). Directed by Colin Tilley, who helmed “Deuces” and “Yeah 3X,” the clip co-stars Lil Wayne and Busta Rhymes, who both appear on the Diplo and Afrojack-produced banger.
“It’s a crazy video right now we shooting,” said Weezy in a Ustream session. “Chris got a billion people dancing. He got these crazy contacts in. I would’ve put them in too, but I’m straight.”
In the first images from the nighttime shoot, the trio is seen standing on top of an ambulance in front of an industrial building. Another scene features a DeLorean DMC-12 sports car from the 1985 film Back to the Future. Singer-songwriter Kevin McCall and Diplo stopped by to show support, as did other members of the Young Money family.
After throwing lyrical jabs at Nicki Minaj, Lil’ Kim comes for her opponent in the viral video for “Black Friday,” a diss track from her mixtape of the same name. A Nicki impersonator is seen watching Kim’s videos on YouTube trying to imitate her style, while a dog chews on a pink-haired doll with butt pads whose shirt reads “Swagga Jacka.” Kimmy Blanco cruises in her yellow Ferrari, taking to the streets of Brooklyn with her IRS crew. She leaves viewers with a quote from Michael Jackson: “It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation…period.” The saga continues.
Justin:Rihanna premiered the video for her latest singe “S&M” via VEVO today. The clip switches from being sexually charged to cheekily charming. The whole over sexualized nature of the video was a satire of sorts of how the press proclaims her to be on a regular basis.
Eminem threw up the peace sign to photographers while arriving in a black Cadillac Escalade to shoot Dr. Dre’s “I Need a Doctor” video today in downtown Los Angeles. Slim Shady joined his mentor on set for their collaboration from Dre’s Detox album. The Alex Da Kid production, which also features singer-songwriter Skylar Grey, will hit iTunes on February 1.
“When it comes out, it will probably be the biggest song in the last 10 years,” Alex previously told Rap-Up TV.
Despite Dre’s claim that the long-awaited project would drop on 4/20, his rep says otherwise.
Attention Lauryn Hill: The Abominable Snowman wants his coat back. A bundled-up L. Boogie warmed up the crowd with a two-hour set at the EXPRESS Rocks show hosted by Skullcandy and VEVO at Harry O’s during the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, on Wednesday (Jan. 26).

There’s no stopping her now!
