Being in Los Angeles you always have the best choices when it comes to bringing out other artists since they all live there. Drake just did a show there last night and decided to bring out both Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg. Here’s some footage of their performances.
Chelsea Lately has been having some pretty dope guests on her show lately. This time time Pusha T stops by to talk about his new album and various other hilarious topics Chelsea brings up. Here’s the full interview below. Enjoy!
This might’ve not been the best move for Trinidad Jame$. Dude just went off and told everyone at his NY show that New York radio is ran by music from the south. He does have a point since Future is the #1 artist on all their stations but this was just a little too disrespectful. Oh and apparently Maino wants to shoot him for it now too. Check out the footage below…
This Arsenio show is really starting to pop off. He’s had a lot of big names and performances come on recently. Here’s last night’s episode with Tyler, the Creator of Odd Future. Funny as always.
Talk about innovation. With all this debating whether or not the YouTube music awards should even exist, Eminem takes the progressive route and performs his “better than all of you” track “Rap God”. I was wondering what it would sound like live Em definitely didn’t disappoint. It’s crazy to see him go that fast and hit every bar. GOAT.
After all the fighting and bickering between these two, Kanye West has agreed to appear on the Jimmy Kimmel show and will be on set tonight. Can’t wait to see what happens when these two end up talking in front of everybody on live television. Tune in, definitely something you don’t want to miss.
Just in case you missed this last night, Miley Cyrus hosted SNL. With an album coming out and new music dropping every day, Miley is on quite the promo run these days. From the reviews I’ve read, she killed hosting the big show. Check out a clip of her performance below.
And then she also performed “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop” on the show.
Justin Timberlake is all over the place once again as he has an album coming out AND a movie! This guy can really do it all and nobody is better than this triple threat. Here’s his most recent performance of “TKO” on Ellen. Enjoy!
What do you do after you win your second NBA title and solidify your position as arguably the best player in the league? Well you make a sitcom about your life on Starz, duh. Lebron James is producing a new show on Starz called “Survivor’s Remorse” that will be somewhat based on his life and making it to the top from nothing. He won’t star in the show of course, but it should still be an interesting project. The story will follow two characters from the streets who attain fame through different avenues and how they deal with the ups and downs of it all. “I think the main thing for me is, first of all, making it out of a place where you’re not supposed to. You’re supposed to be a statistic and end up like the rest of the people in the inner city — [and] being one of the few to make it out and everyone looking at you to be the savior,” James said in a phone interview last week.
Seeing Kendrick Lamar at Bumbershoot was definitely priority number one once I hit Seattle Center. All of the other artists out there were dope, but never seeing Kendrick live it was a must to experience it one time. Joey Bada$$ is also one of my favorite guys out right now so seeing him right before Kendrick was an added bonus. Bada$$ has more of a classic/New York hip-hop feel to his music so there wasn’t much turning up going on, but still a dope lyricist that knows how to control the stage. One of the coolest parts was when he performed his verse off A$AP Rocky’s “1 Train”. That song still has some of the best verses from 2013 on it.
Once Joey Bada$$ was done this weird feeling came over the entire place, everyone was waiting on Kendrick. Security working the venue blocked off the main floor while Bada$$ was on, but once he finished everybody said “f*ck it” and jumped the barriers to hit the floor. It was hilarious seeing these kids breaking security guards’ ankles just to get closer to the stage.
Kendrick has a very powerful presence once he hits the stage. Of course everyone wanted him to perform that “Control” verse, but this wasn’t the best place for that. Kendrick ran through his classics like “Money Trees”, “Bitch Don’t Kill my Vibe”, “Compton”, and of course his verse from “F*ckin Problem”. He’s also got a great/motivational way of speaking to the crowd. Before performing “Mad City” he told everyone to let go of any stressors in their lives and just lose it to the song. Check out the video below to see how that went down. Overall the place was turned all the way up the entire time Kendrick was on stage. I still get goosebumps even thinking about, that’s how to murder a show. It’s crazy to think that he’s been hitting the stage non-stop recently. Right after Bumbershoot he had to fly out to Philly and perform at the “Made in America” festival. Don’t know if he says this at every stop but he showed a lot of love to Seattle for supporting the TDE movement since day 1. It was cool when he’d go in and perform some older songs from “Section .80″. That’s when you could really feel out all the true fans in the building. I can’t wait until he comes back to the NW, definitely hitting that show again.
UPDATE: Rumor has it that this was the first time Kendrick has performed with his own live band. I could actually tell that he was feelin’ the set a lot more than normal and rockin’ out with his new guitar player. Sometimes a band is too much for a rapper but he nailed it with his squad.
