Rapper J. Cole was a special guest speaker in a CTEMS (Cinema, Television, and Emerging Studies) class today at Morehouse College.

His appearance was kept a super secret. People in the class (and other invited guests) didn’t know who their guest was going to be – until he walked in.

Word quickly spread on campus and hundreds of students (including myself) crowded the hallways and the outsides of Dansby Hall just to get a glimpse of Cole. I can say from firsthand experience – THINGS GOT CRAZY.

BUT Cole appreciated all the love from his fans, smiling for pictures and taking selfies with people – despite being pushed through a crowd of crazy, screaming students from the building all the way to his car!

Here is a compilation of videos (that I recorded for snapchat!) from the scene

Where’s the lighter?

It’s been almost ten years since Pharrell and Gwen Stefaniblew our minds with “Hollaback Girl,” but they’re finally back it with “Spark The Fire.”

Earlier this month, Pharrell previewed the song during his performance at Odd Future’s Camp Flog Gnaw Carnival.

“Who got the lighter?” asks Gwen. “Let’s spark the fire,” she continues.

It’s been eight years since she released her sophomore solo album The Sweet Escape, but stay locked for Gwen’s third solo effort in 2015. The mother of three is also in the studio readying a new No Doubt album.

We were all scratching our heads when New Orleans rapper Mystikaljoined Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson on stage during their Saturday Night Live performance, but upon further review, we love their new collaboration.

Last week, Mark and Bruno released the ’70s-inspired music video for their own collabo “Uptown Funk.” There’s no telling what the music video for “Feel Right” will look like, but leave it up to Mark, and we’ll all be dancing.

“Feel Right” and “Uptown Funk” will be featured on the DJ/producer’s new Uptown Special album, due out January 27.
