With them being the official Queensbridge murderers it may surprise you that over the weekend the duo of Prodigy & Havoc better known as Mobb Deep performed at Queensbridge Park for the first time.

The OVO head honcho was back at it again last night as he hosted the 2014 ESPY Awards show at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. It’s no secret Drake is comfortable infront of the camera and yet again last night Drake proved that.
Drake opened up with an impressive opening monologue before a skit with Blake Griffin and Chris Brown. Drake then done what he does best and broke out into music with two comedic pieces ‘Honorable Mention’ which saw him sending a shot at Macklemore, and ‘Side Pieces’ which saw Drake accompanied by Brian McKnight. Drake wasn’t done there as he and Manny Pacquiao sang ‘Let It Go’ the popular song of the animated ‘Frozen’ film. Drake wrapped things up by reading a poem that he had wrote for Skylar Diggins. Hit the jump to re-live the evening.
Noisey Canada took BADBADNOTGOOD to the wilderness and allowed them to perform their beautiful music. The Bruce Peninsula looks like something out of a fairy tale, it would be an ideal camping ground that’s for sure. Check out these sweet visuals after the jump.
Last night the annual BET Awards took place at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles and a whole bunch of artists took to the stage to perform. It all started with Pharrell Williams opening up and bringing out Missy Elliot to join him for a verse from her 2003 hit ‘Pass The Dutch’. The performances kept on rolling and up next was Lil Wayne who performed his new single ‘Krazy’ as well as the 1da produced ‘Believe Me’. Following the energetic but short performance from Wayne was the talented duo of John Legend and Jhené Aiko who performed their ‘You & I’ and ‘The Worst’ singles respectively. Following that was Chris Brown who gave his first post jail performance with his ‘Loyal’ single. Chris was joined by Tyga, Lil Wayne and former Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker.

With G-Unit’s reunion moving along nicely another reunion that is highly anticipated is The Diplomats, better known as Dipset. Whilst we wait and see how it develops the foursome hit D.C last night to perform solo hits before wrapping up with ‘Salute’.

Yerp, believe it or not Tech N9ne recently appeared on National Television to perform for the first time ever and it came courtesy of DJ Skee and his first season of SKEE Live. It’s crazy that Tech always seems to be relevant but this is the first time he has appeared in front of cameras to perform for live television. Tech took to the stage to perform ‘Fragile’ from his Something Else album. The track features Kendrick Lamar, and vocals from ¡Mayday! and Kendall Morgan.
