<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=183668"> Akon may be a little <a href="http://www.vladtv.com/blog/42225/akon-gets-extra-close-with-the-ladies-in-paris-vip-room/">too popular with the ladies</a> to dedicate the greater portion of music to the streets these days, but think he's lost his ear for those gun sounds and criminal activity soundtracks.

The Lonely Island Feat. Akon – “I Just Had Sex” Video

By | 8 Comments

<a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-just-had-sex-single/id410395279"> Dedicated to those who walk around smelling like the lubricant glazed on Trojan® products, the Grammy-Nominated comedic misfits, The Lonely Island, want you to know that they just porked Jessica Alba---and are damn proud of it. That's figuritavely speaking, of course. She's one of the co-stars of their new video, which precedes their next album. Also aptly featured are John McEnroe (because fornication is the only thing that allows him to crack a smile) and crooner Akon (because he's married to half of Sudan). This is good for a carefree laugh but if elementary kids start singing it, we're going to need an intervention, America. For those that just had sex before reading this post, it's already available <a href="http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/i-just-had-sex-single/id410395279">on iTunes</a>.

Flo Rida Pays Rent In The Club

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/11/flo-rida-turn-around-54321-video"> What's your addiction? Is it money? Is it girls? Is it weed? Flo Rida has be afflicted by not one, not two but by all three. Mainly because his place of residence just so happens to be one of Miami's multiple nightclubs and you can find all of the aforementioned vices in abundance. He sleeps on beds of linoleum, showers with 80% proof alcohol and has a DJ act as his personal alarm clock. All this would be pretty scummy if his neighbors didn't happen to be the 5'7", long-haired model types who can keep up all night in designer heels. Check out he's living on his musical rendition of Cribs and the soundtrack is also <a href="http://officialflo.com/onlyoneflo/">available</a> for those of you who want to party in your own iHome.
