(Video) Call of Duty: Black Ops - First Strike Multiplayer Preview

With all the connection issues I've had on PS3 I'm not too excited about this. You'd think after making over a billion dollars & being out for a couple months they'd be able to address these issues.


Available first on Xbox 360 February 1st. More details to come for PS3 and PC.

First Strike contains 5 incredibly diverse maps spanning the globe; featuring 4 multiplayer maps and a new Zombie experience. Includes "Berlin Wall", allowing combat on both sides of the imposing wall; "Discovery", a desolate, frozen German outpost in the Arctic; "Kowloon", battle in the rain along the rooftops of a towering Chinese sprawl; "Stadium", an intense locale with a pro hockey arena backdrop; and "Ascension", where you fight zombies in a Soviet launch facility.

(Artist Spotlight/Audio) Tenille [ @Tenillemusic ] - ''Anything'' @LaborDeptMusic Remix

Via The Labor Dept..

"Another banger from the ever so talented Tenille. This was originally done on The Notorious B.I.G.'s "I Got A Story To Tell" beat. She threw the acapella out there, and we reworked it the best way we know how to. We had to share it with the world. Enjoy."

Queens-HipHop.com says "two thumbs up!!!".

(Download) Hi-Jynx [ @JynxUrself ] Presents: ''Your Love: Smells Like Money''

Hi-Jynx was one of the first artist we featured in our Artist Spotlight section a couple years ago & now he's back with a new project to set the new year off the right way. I fux with Jynx music because he doesn't have that shoot 'em up bang bang disease that seems to have afflicted so many up & coming NY artists these days. He's an independent out of Queens, NY more in the vein of the legendary Queens rap group A.T.C.Q. but don't take my word for it, I rather just let the music speak for itself.

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze

The Generals consist of emcees Willie Maze & Dime.
