I memorized the wayward expressions
Never look down
Never let you see me down
I memorized the way no directions
Can I come over now
I’d like to stay a little while
I memorized your body exposed
I could f**k you all night long
From a memory alone
I never forget a face
Don’t go plastic on me
Nothing’s set in stone
You’re not dipped in gold
Dipped in gold
You can’t breathe if you’re dipped in gold
You are not on paper
You are not a copy
You’re so, you’re so..so thick, so thick

As Jeezy’s TOUR DJ, Baby Yu has definitely been influenced by The Snowman. Known as The Remix Kid, DJ Baby Yu created an original composition featuring hard-hitting mash-up’s and remixes of some of Jeezy’s biggest songs. The result is a sonic thrill ride through the trap called Snow: The Rebirth.
On Snow: The Rebirth Baby Yu uses his first studio mixtape to merge instrumentation and electronic music with Jeezy’s hard rap lyrics to create a unique sound that is melodic and unexpected. Connoisseurs of great music will appreciate Yu’s unorthodox approach to the obvious. Fans of Jeezy can look forward to classic Snowman verses with a fresh feel. Snow: The Rebirth is also home of Jeezy’s new single “Link Up” produced by DJ Mustard and features Beenie Man and Ty Dolla $ign.
Kendrick Lamar’s latest single “i” was selected to be the official soundtrack of the 2014-15 NBA season, so it seems only fitting that the Black Hippy emcee would perform the track live at an NBA event. K. Dot was on hand in Cleveland as LeBron James returned home for the first time since rejoining with the Cavaliers.
While the Cavs would fall to the New York Knicks in the game, the crowd in Cleveland was treated to Kendrick hitting the stage with a live band outside the Quicken Loans Arena. Comedian Kevin Hart and basketball legend Charles Barkley helped introduce Lamar to the audience.

The attack Kim Kardashian went through while in Paris has led her and husband Kanye West to bring on extra security while in the city. According to TMZ, the couple also reportedly hired two more teams of bodyguards and are now traveling in armored vehicles.
