Michael Jackson: RIP 5th Anniversary

MJ_XscapeWow,

It’s been 5 years since the passing of Michael Joseph Jackson.  We remember it well, since the SwitchFlip Media Headquarters resided in the Westside of Los Angeles, less than 7 miles from where the fatal incident occurred to the biggest popstar to ever bless our planet.  As troubled as he was in his later life (prescription drugs and criminal court cases for sex offense), he still remains one of the most talented and revered human beings on the planet.   Here’s the latest video “Love Never Felt So Good” (from his 2014 album Xscape) and a few classics. RIP MJ!

Screen shot 2014-01-14 at 12.51.40 PM

Whatup World,

2014 Festival Season is already fast approaching!  With the lineups announced for Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Festival,  SXSW (coming soon), etc., it seems this year will be pretty epic!  However, a 3rd year newbie to festival season continues to take it to the next level.  The Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware will be held  June 19-22 with this crazy lineup.  Outkast, Foo Fighters and Jack Johnson head the bill.  The bands w/ asterisks are #SwitchFlip Certified.  Tickets go on sale Monday January 20th.  Click the images for the website.  It looks like we will be heading back East this year for certain, as our head honcho Damon Howard is originally from this area and was involved with the inaugural event!

EMINEM: Survival & Bezerk

Eminem_Survival

Whatuppers Wurld,

Eminem’s highly anticipated new album MMLP2 hits cybershelves Nov 5th.  The latest single off of The Marshall Mathers LP2 is called “Survival“.  The video has a Call of Duty feel (a multimedia sponsorship), where Eminem is basically declaring war on Hip-Hop and all MCs/Critics who think he’s gonna fall off the radar anytime soon.  He proclaims that all he has is this “sport”, so he will never put his crown down.  You can hear how invigorated his rap style is now, yet still matured from the Slim Shady days.  Executive Produced by Rick Rubin  (who has been crazy busy this year with Kanye’s Yeezus and Jay-Z’s Magna Carta) we think this album will definitely bring back the swagger that made The Marshall Mathers LP a classic.  SwitchFllip Bonus; we’ve included the lead single “Beserk” with a behind-the-scenes clip as well. Shout out to Rick Rubin and Marshall Mathers for giving a nod to the Rubin-produced Beastie Boys era.  Check out the new videos below and send us some feedback.
