Soulja Boy Feat. Justin Bieber – “Rich Girl”

Posted by T. Adeyemi on May 23, 2010

Don’t act surprised to see this song posted on Grade A. You already know that Young Bieber’s Official DJ is none other than co-founder of Grade A DJ Tay James, plus like the other millions of fans out there we happen to actually like the young heart throb’s music. And on top of all that helping to push this song to the masses only helps to silence the naysayers that believe JB’s BET nomination was unwarranted. Do I think Justin Bieber and BET are a good fit? That’s another and another post but I do happen to like this song.

Always one for the lighthearted sing song feel once an a while I have allowed myself to indulge in Soulja Boy’s latest offering. Certainly not straying too far from his original roots Dre manages to create a pure crossover hit that will surely have the preteens singing along. From two artists who haven’t found making hits hard to come by this definitely will add to their lists. This Julkeyz produced track provides a smooth and rhythmic beat that Bieber adds his vocals over to create a sixteen year olds dream. Read the rest of this entry »

Diggy Interview x Freestyle on 106 & Park

Posted by T. Adeyemi on March 31, 2010

My second favorite Simmons (after Vanessa of course) Goes IN, well underage style on 106 & Park last night. The boy is definitely going to make some noise, evidenced by his growing following internet wide and the over 100,000 downloads that he mentions during the interview.

The only advice I have for young Diggy is make sure you do at LEAST one track with Justin Bieber. The two of these young heart-throbs on the same song is a guaranteed goldmine. And if you don’t know who Bieber is, first of all you should feel foolish. Secondly, head on over to and check out my boy aka Justin’s Official Dj, DJ Tay James.
