Angela Yee, of New York City's Power 105.1 FM, and Miss Info, of New York City's Hot 97 FM, are two of hip-hop's most talented and respected radio personalities and tastemakers. Recently, Yee and Info, in separate interviews, sat down to give us an inside look at what a day in their lives is like, while also breaking down their thoughts on The Hip Hop Dance Experience, the latest video game from Ubisoft, to be released November 13th.

In the Angela Yee clip, the Brooklyn native and Breakfast Club co-host takes us inside the Power 105.1 studios, breaking down what an average day is like for her at the station, before reminiscing on some of her favorite club tracks (Fat Joe's "Lean Back") that appear in The Hip Hop Dance Experience. Angela Yee also gives a special shout-out to choreographer to the stars Laurieann Gibson, who was integrally involved in the making of The Hip Hop Dance Experience, and whose involvement Yee expects will make her a better dancer after playing the game.

For her clip, Minya Oh, AKA Miss Info, takes us to New York City's Washington Square Park as she recalls growing up in her Chicago with a deep passion for hip-hop, listening to artists like Run DMC, NWA, and De La Soul, and going to clubs to share that music with friends and peers. "Dance is the physical expression of why you love music," she says in the video. "And in hip-hop it's even more crucial." And while Miss Info admits to doing some of her most aggressive dancing in the privacy of her own home, she's excited about the possibilities that The Hip Hop Dance Experience offers to not only improve on one's dance skills, mentioning gaming functions like "Power Schooling," which offers players a slo-mo tutorial, but also to make people more social and active, or, as Miss Info says, "to become the life of the party."

The Hip Hop Dance Experience is the first authentic hip hop game in the dance category. Players can dance to hit songs from Drake, Mark Morrison, N.E.R.D., Nelly, Outkast, Rihanna, and many more, with dance moves designed by the most famous hip hop choreographers in the industry. Authentic music video and live performance footage, paired with dynamic visual effects triggered by your movement, transform your living room into a real-time music video. The Hip Hop Dance Experience will be available worldwide for Kinect for Xbox 360 and Wii for Nintendo on November 13th.

This is the latest video released from my 1/2012 release "The Longer Way Home." I don't know how to separate myself from the 1,000's of other artists spamming you guys except through my music. The video has no music until the 1:40 mark, all prior is a speech by Charlie Chaplin.

Nicky Spesh's creation Butterscotch Espinosa is creating a buzz, September saw him up to his old tricks freestyling with hip hop legends Lords of the Underground in north London. He has broken into the reverbnation top 100 for hip hop and notched up 10,000+ video views in a week.

His debut album 'The World I Know' received critical acclaim getting 5 Stars in IDJ Magazine & DMC Magazine, and his follow up EP "Return to the concubine spaceship" was again awarded 5 stars. He has composed music for documentaries on Sky 1 and Channel 4 and is now making jingles for the itunes top 10 sports podcast whilst juggling a family and fixing computers for 'the man'.

The summer of 2012 saw a number of high profile DJ's getting sacked for being 'too old' and a new and horribly untrendy demographic of 'festival dads' was identified. Is it possible to grow old and remain current in the internet age? This is the dilemma that Butterscotch Espinosa faces in his new single 'Middle Aged Rap', a record that embraces the onset of age like a drunk embracing a lamppost.

"Its harvest and the cats come in, laid back red eyes "what's happening?" Homework boy! Get the Latin in, no chips tonight 'cos they're fattening."

PR: Far East Movement's "For All" Inspired by Barack Obama

Courtesy Greg Miller.

"The song was inspired by President Obama's 'For All' campaign. We wanted to create an anthem around the inspirational ideals that people around the world are entitled to, no matter your race, religion, sexual preference, political or social views," says Far East Movement's Kev Nish. "We use the crowd at our concerts as the example. When you're at a show experiencing live music, no matter who you're next to, you're experiencing that magic together."
