Unsung Hollywood is a music documentary series. Unsung Hollywood is a spin-off of the original series, Unsung, which was about various stories behind well-known soul music artists and R&B groups who exploded on to the scene and topped the Billboard music charts, only to later loose their careers to some form of a major crisis. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood focuses primarily on a film or television star, rather than a music star. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood acts like a documentary, with raw footage of the artists and actors, as well as testimonies from insiders, family, friends, and other people who were close to the featured artist or actor. Each episode of Unsung Hollywood will take you through the life of the featured artist or actor, too. Each episode usually will begin with a story about childhood, then taking the viewer through the struggles and successes of the artist or actor, up to the point of success. Each episode will highlight important points in the artist or actors career and discuss what ultimately led to their failure.

My Shot With from mtv U offers viewers the chance to fulfill their dream and for some lucky people, put an end to the question "what would I do if I had 5 minutes with my favorite celebrity". The show puts together dedicated viewers and their favorite celebrity and gives them a 5 minutes glimpse into their potential 15 minutes of fame. Celebrity encounters so far have included people like Seth Rogen, Wyclef Jean, an encounter with the band Paramore, and there is even a trip to the White House to talk with secretary Arne Duncan. The show can be viewed online and offers a new take on celebrity interviews with each episode offering a fresh perspective. With more episodes in the works we hope more viewers tune in and make more requests for their chance to partake in the show and we can continue to enjoy this constantly original material for years to come.

Veteranz Day is the seventh and most-recent studio album by emcee Big Daddy Kane, released on April 28, 1998. The album came four years after his previous effort, 1994's Daddy's Home. Veteranz Day received little attention, commercially and critically, and was met with mixed reviews and little sales. It was his first and only album not to chart on the Billboard 200. Veteranz' Day was the first and only album release for the small New York-based record label called the Label Records, which was founded by Frank Yandolino. Although it managed to earn a distribution deal with Mercury Records by way of Joan Jett's and Kenny Laguna's Blackheart Records, which was acting as a boutique distribution outlet for independent labels from 1998 to 2000, The Label folded almost shortly after the release of Veteranz Day. The album features the single "Uncut, Pure," which reached the top 10 on the Hot Rap Singles chart. There are two versions of "Uncut, Pure"—the original version produced by Easy Mo Bee, and a sequel version produced by Big Daddy Kane himself, the latter of which was released on the independently released 12-inch single and also featured as a bonus track on the CD and cassette versions of the album.
