I was watching a Joey Bada$$ interview the other day, it was with Complex and he was speaking on the death of A$AP Yams. It was clear Joey was hurting and he was talking about how the New York scene has to unite, I have a new found respect for the 20 year old. His B4.DA.$$ album is out now and is also impressive.
His latest media call was to Sway’s morning show where he gave an in-studio performance of ‘Born Day’.
While people continue to digest ‘Tetsuo & Youth’, Lupe Fiasco took the stage on Late Night with Seth Meyers to per for his latest single. “Deliver”. (more…)
L.A. was turnt up last night as The Game threw a special one off concert to celebrate his classic 2005 LP The Documentary turning ten years old. Many faces were in attendance and certain names such as O.T. Genasis, Tyga, Marsha Ambrosius and loads more joined Game on stage, most notably though was Dr. Dre and Kendrick Lamar who were both greeted by tremendous applauds from the crowd. Highlights of the night can be found below.
Wale’s ‘Simply Nothing Tour’ hit Chicago over the weekend and during his set he brought out Chance The Rapper as the duo performed their ‘Friendship Heights’ cut. Watch below.
Last night, Joey Bada$$ and BJ The Chicago Kid took to Jimmy Fallon’s stage and performed their collaborative single, “Like Me”. The Roots and Statik Selektah also helped bring the track to light, which will subsequently appear on Joey’s January 20th debut album, ‘B4.DA.$$’. (more…)
Ariana Grande and The Weeknd deliver a powerful performance of an acoustic version of their ‘Love Me Harder’ collaboration. Watch the video below.
Dressed as dapper as usual, Drake was the man of the night at Marquee Nightclub inside The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas as the Pacific timezone partied the last minutes of their 2014 away. Drake not only hosted the event, but he took the stage to perform a slew of hits including “Trophies,” “Started From The Bottom,” and “We Made It.” Check out the action below!
As I listen to Ashanti’s Christmas EP, which by all means is a cheerful listen for any holiday playlist, I’m also trying to find all my old Ashanti music to put back on my iPod. As a part of Flow 93.5FM’s Big Night at The Guvernment, Ashanti took the stage, alongside The Airplane Boys, Tasha the Amazon and A-Game – and well, a very special appearance from Snow. The opening acts took the stage with grace, although the completely packed venue was truly there to see Ashanti. Unfortunately, I missed Tasha The Amazon due to some door issues, but A-Game got the crowd hype despite their mic levels being lower than their backtracks, and The Airplane Boys ended up in and out of the crowd like beasts. However, more excitement nestled it’s way through the crowd as opening acts came and went, Flow 93.5 hosts gave away money, and various other contests were held. It was the equivalent of having a live on-air radio show, except on stage of course. (more…)
