Watching the Throne

It’s not often that two of music’s most well-respected superstars get together to not only collaborate on an album but also a whirlwind, laser and fog-laden tour. So, unsurprisingly, a solid amount of Team Epiphany members found their way to the “Watch the Throne” concerts at both Madison Square Garden and Washington DC’s Verizon Center.

Reactions, vantage points and favorite moments all differed between Team members. Some thought that the performance of a certain European-themed, Hit-Boy-produced track three times in a row was overkill, while others relished in its extravagance. Some thought that Kanye’s leather kilt (skirt?) was simply ridiculous, while others (well, maybe just one of us) thought it fit his fashion-forward rockstar persona perfectly. In terms of the solo sets, some thought that the effortless, pitch-perfect rapping of Jay-Z’s classics overshadowed Kanye’s emotional, multi-faceted performances, while others preferred the vocoded splendor of “Runaway” and “Heartless.” Regardless of our differences, however, the resounding conclusion reached by us all was the same: this concert was epic.

TE’s Industry: Cee Lo Green & the Game of Branding

Victoria’s Secret recently announced that Cee Lo Green will join a star-studded roster of performers (which already includes Maroon 5 and Kanye West) for the brand’s annual Victoria Secret Fashion Show celebration, which tapes on November 9, 2011. The news should come as no surprise to readers however. In the past year, Thomas DeCarlo Farranti, a.k.a. Cee Lo Green,  has positioned himself as a household name the likes of Stevie Wonder, James Brown, or even Elton John.

From his world-wide chart topping single “F*ck You” (which was named as Time’s #1 song of 2010) to joining actress and know-it-all Gwyneth Paltrow on stage for her 2011 Grammy performance debut to serving as a fan-favorite judge on the reality television show, “The Voice” - this Grammy Award-winning crooner has expanded his personal brand and career well beyond what is typically expected from mainstream hip-hop artists. Today, the Grammy Award-winning crooner is celebrated as a standalone entertainer. Mr. Green is even slated to join the cast for the upcoming remake of 1976 film, “Sparkle.”
