During his address, President Obama will discuss among other things, his new stimulus package, which will lead talk about the new Green economy.
I'm a Green guy, so much so that I created a job platform called hirejam.com, along with a blog, Facebook page, Twitter and few other web 2.0 tools so that people can interact and network.
I created it because it depresses me to watch people lose their jobs, homes and even families because of the economy.
To paraphrase, President Obama " its not about me, but about you", so if I can help any of you out there to find a job in this new green economy, then my platform has served its purpose.

AP - The number of laid-off workers receiving unemployment benefits has jumped to an all-time high near 5 million while new jobless claims remain well above 600,000. Both figures were worse than expected and new projections from the Federal Reserve show unemployment rising for the rest of this year.

I didn't expect much out of Lil Wayne's performance, but the I dig Robin Thicke's music so I rolled with their performance, which was OK.
BUT, its the following performance where Lil Wanye brought out New Orleans jazz legends New Orleans musicians Allen Toussiant and Terence Blanchard (who scored Spike Lee's music from "Malcolm X" to "Inside Man") is the reason why I posted this video.
One of my gripes with Nawlins rappers is that their music never showcase the rich Dixieland history that made New Orleans famous.
In one failed swoop, Lil Wayne turned the Grammy's into a thriving street in New Orleans with tubas, trumpets, umbrellas twirling and thriving, bluesy piano rhythms, thus showcasing Lil Wayne's musical present, while embracing is Zydeco/Cajun music past.
This post isn't about calling Lil Wayne "The Best Rapper Alive", this is post is about acknowledging his musical growth, which hopefully will translate into his future music.
The guys didn't do anything special, so it had to be the very pregnant M.I.A. who was quite nimble on her feet. How four grown men be outperfomed by a woman who is nine months pregnant is crazy to me.
Speaking of M.I.A. her lable handled the soundtrack for "Slumdog Millionaire"; check out the flick if you can, its quite good.

Through it all, Preemo maintains his true school roots. That’s most evident with his label, Year Round Records, which houses hardcore acts like the NYGz and Blaq Poet. Taking a break from his Friday night satellite radio show on Sirius XM, “Live From HeadQCourterz,” Premier breaks down the foundation for his budding label and extends open invitations to Cory Gunz and Dr. Dre to spit on his tracks.
