I’m still raging at how the fuck Iggy Azalea won best hip-hop album? Beating Eminem and Drake for the award? Like how the fuck that even happen? Oh well. I guess those fuck boys who chose her know better than me, right. Anyway, last night the 2014 AMA’s took place at the Nokia Theatre in LA and below you can watch some of the stand out performances from the night including appearances from Lil Wayne, YG, Fergie, DJ Mustard, Sam Smith, A$AP Rocky, The Weeknd and many more. I’m out.
Although Forest Hills Drive has no promo run set, J. Cole has allowed The Fader to follow him at the L.A. stop of his ‘Dollar And A Dream’ tour. Get to know the NC artist a little better after the jump.
The often-annoynymous singer/songwriter/every-man Boots has released a video of him performing a new single called “Only”. Taken from Public Radio International’s podcast Sideshow, Boots blends his sounds and St. Vincent’s “Cheerleader / Prince Johnny” to create the new single.
The brother Walder is on the ball when it comes to stuff going down in Toronto and last night T.I.’s ‘Paperwork’ tour hit the city. Mid way through set Clifford brought out Drake and P.Reign. Reps Up’s P.Reign performed his ‘DnF’ before Drake got into ‘Tuesday’ and the 1da produced ‘0 to 100′ and ‘6 God’. Drake also had some strong words to say regarding the importance of T.I. in his career.
Logic made his late night TV debut last night on Jimmy Fallon’s hit show, performing a few hits from ‘Under Pressure’ and backed by, as always, the legendary Roots crew.
BJ The chicago Kid keeps impressing me every time I hear something new from him, so I’m happy to post up this video of him performing songs from his ‘Pineapple No-Laters’ album, and closing out with D’Angelo’s “Untitled (How Does It Feel”. This installment of their mini concert series comes shortly after T-Pain’s auto-tuneless video that surfaced last week. Keep them coming!
You know, despite having met Thurz, I’ve never actually seen him perform live. Insert this video, which catches the L.A. native performing his latest EP, ‘Designer’, on The Morning Brew with all live instrumentation.
Remember that skit that was included in Rocky’s ‘Multiply’ video? The small section of the video where the beat changed up and Yung Gleesh is dancing? Well it is coming and yet again Rocky has teased us with it. Fans are eagerly waiting it, me included and at the Red Bull Culture Clash in London he previewed a little bit more of it.
