Bruno Mars – The Lazy Song (Alternate Version)

After going bananas with his friends in one take, Bruno Mars serves an entertaining alternate version of “The Lazy Song” music video. Instead of taking action in front of the lenses, the crooner passes the spot to famed actor Leonard Nimoy aka Star Trek‘s original Mr. Spock. Dressed in a housecoat, the 80-year-old actor is taking it a bit too easy in this comedic clip. Enjoy!

Raekwon – Snake Pond (Video)

Legendary NYC spitter Raekwon debuts the video for “Snake Pond,” his latest single off Shaolin Vs. Wu-Tang. Gritty and violent, with the trademark Wu-Tang martial arts inflection, the video follows Raekwon as he seeks revenge on a presumable enemy in a dark urban environment. A winning combination of Tarantino and Notorious B.I.G.,  ”Snake Pond” may not be for everyone – but it’s classic Raekwon.
