Eddie Murphy, yes the Beverly Hills Cop legendary comedian, has a reggae single called "Red Light" with Snoop Lion, yes the famous rapper Snoop Dogg. As icing on the cake, you can also expect a video for "Red Light" on September 9th and a full solo album from Eddie Murphy called 9.
Mind blown? Thought so.
Here's the single (it's not bad), and a classic Beverly Hills cop GIF, below.
This might be one of The Greatest Things Ever: Snoop Lion interviewing Larry King. That's not all this video includes though, running the gamut from Larry and Snoop impersonating each other (King dons a red tracksuit), to Larry writing a rap with Snoop's help and performing it.
Also included are Larry's thoughts on marijuana policy (he would legalize it), and who he thinks were his best interviews. Also, why does Snoop have a mock TV news show? The world may never know. Check it out above.
I just never know what to think of foreign culture inspired videos: Offensive, flattering, or neither.
Just in case I couldn't love Rita Ora even more, Snoop Lion just featured her in his latest video, Torn Apart, shot in Thailand.
Finally someone glorifies the culture and sunny beaches in Thailand, instead of Asian mafia activity, prostitues, and drug deals. Though Rita Ora might have gotten some major details wrong, such as Chinese umbrellas, reggae beats, and strange headbands/hats, as a Thai, I can still appreciate the effort. They also did get a lot of random Thailand dancers, Muay Thai fighters, and elephants all withint one music video. That, I definitely don't see every day. Hm... I guess I wouldn't mind wearing Thai inspired head pieces in place of those flower crowns that have been blowing up all over festival season.

What are your thoughts on "cultural" inspired video. In "Come and Get It, " this summer's hottest radio song, Selena is wearing a bindi. Is it offensive or a fun new fashion statement. You decide.
