Kate Upton Hot Pockets
Supermodel Kate Upton and rapper Snoop Dogg have teamed up for a bizarre new video promoting microwaveable meal Hot Pockets.

The two unlikely co-stars are joined by former talk show host Larry King and perform a parody of Biz Markie's "Just A Friend".

The new jingle, titled "You Got What I Eat", also features Oliver Cooper and Bow Wow in an attempt to get people who actually eat Hot Pockets to vote on whether or not it's the new "premium cuts of meat" or the new "buttery seasoned crusts" that keep fans coming back for more.

The song features updated lyrics sung by Biz (and lip-synched by...

Biz Markie
It might be the music that Rihanna is now discovering. Or, it may be the same music that inspired P. Diddy to get into the game and be where he is today. Whatever the case may be, old school music was all of that back in the day. Jams were light - hearted at best, about having a good time, bringing a good laugh, sharing a moral story, making a social commentary, or, just something to chill too. Going waaaay back, here are some goodies that are now old school classics.

Defining Greatness: The One-Hit Wonder Scale

February 26th, 2008 11:14am EST
Vanilla Ice
Probably the most underrated term in the music industry is the "One Hit Wonder." Popularized in the 80s, one hit wonders are either regarded as artists with one hit (like Deee-Lite’s "Groove is in the Heart"), or artists who produced a song that everybody knows (like "Turning Japanese" by The Vapors).

However, the truth of the matter is that one hit wonders actually come in many shapes and sizes. There are hits that are huge one day and laughable the next, there are hits that are mildly spectacular at first but ultimately propel the careers of the artists who recorded them, and there a...

Rhymefest
With the humor of Biz Markie, the lyrical viciousness of Kool G Rap and the storytelling brilliance of Slick Rick, Grammy Award winning rapper Rhymefest is confirmed to release his highly anticipated major label debut album Blue Collar on July 11 on Allido/J Records.

Since winning a Grammy in 2004 for co-writing Kanye West's "Jesus Walks," along with the release of his first single (and Dave Meyers-directed video) "Brand New," -- and countless exclusive mixtapes in between -- Rhymefest has been dubbed the "one to watch" by critics and fans alike.
