Elektrolytes Perform at The Latin Grammys

ABDC 7 Champions, The Elektrolytes, recently accompanied Latino artist, 3BALL MTY and Sky Blu of LMFAO at this year's Latin Grammys with a cameo from Shuffle Bot. Great job, guys! Como se dice "Elektro-zzzzzzzzt!-Lytes!" en espanol?

Video: The Royal Family - "9th Inning"

Check out Parris Goebel and the Royal Family's (2x HHI Gold Medalists) production to Missy Eliott and Timbaland's "9th Inning". I can't tell if this was done in one take (without cuts) or not? Regardless, this video is fire.  From BGPOPA YouTube.
