Jae Millz | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #114 (Video)

Okay. I saw the ‘heat’ in the comments for K-ShiNe’s freestyle for Flex that we just posted… Apparently, Jae Millz took that L. But even whisper the battlecat’s name and he’s back at you. Heavy bar talk with a double side serving of ‘petty’ for every hater. Ha!

You WANT these two at your dance party. You NEED these two at your dance party. Hahahaaa! But hold up: Did Tiff throw in a li’l crumping into that James Brown shuffle at the end?

Jimmy faces off against Tiffany Haddish in an intense lip sync-off to songs like Post Malone’s “Psycho” and James Brown’s “Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine.”

Wu-Tang Clan – “Protect Ya Neck” / “C.R.E.A.M.” (Live Performance) [Video]

Yooo! I’m mad because NOBODY told me that Kimmel had on the Wu-Tang, WU-TANG, WU-TAAAAANG! And they did the classics LIVE? And who is that doing the ODB (RIP) part of “Protect Ya Neck” though?

(Nope. I’m not going to spoil it. Let me give y’all a hint though…YDB!)

Hit the jump for the “C.R.E.A.M.” performance.

Comedy: Deon Cole Admits To Having To ‘Manage His Blackness’ In Public (Video)

Shhhhh… Deon Cole. C’mon son! You telling ’em all the keys to the Culture. Facts though, especially in DC, where even though there are lots of Black folk we cannot always be ‘Black folk’ (yanadameen?). And Deon pointing out that thickness ’round town and in the crowd is 100% factual, too. Bet both pockets that memes like ‘Thicker Than Cold Peanut Butter’ are out there now if not soon, too (haha)!

Lupe Fiasco – “Mural Jr.” (Live Performance) [Video]

Live. Lyricism. Lupe. Under the bridge. On these streets, where it matters. Unexpected but not uncharacteristic. Fiasco is only a ‘disaster’ to wack rappers’ careers. The rest of us in the real Hip-Hop Nation… we fux with dude heavy! Stuff like this is why.

For his live performance of “Mural Jr.” we took him underneath NYC’s Williamsburg Bridge for a shoot that nods to the ‘Drogas Wave’ theme. There’s a clear view of the East River waters next to the downtown Manhattan walkway ‘Lu prowled while rhyming a cappella. His inspired take on the track (the sequel to the ‘Tetsuo & Youth’ original, “Mural”) gains extra emotional clout by insightfully incorporating the local landscape. Hold up!

Even the bridge above had to make some noise and give love #HoldUp

Swizz Beatz x French Montana | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #110 (Video)

Definitely a ‘zone’ and a ‘feeling’ for this Funk Flex freestyle. Has there ever been hooka on the set for one of these? Okay, French, let’s go! Live overdubs provided by Swizzy… until he had to jump the track and beat the beat with some barz himself!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Big Boi (Video)

Big Boi comes down from The Planet Of Stankonia to do a Tiny Desk Concert… ON IT!

The energy in the room was buoyant and vibrant from the moment they walked in the door. OutKast star Big Boi, Sleepy Brown of the prolific Atlanta production collective Organized Noize, and their eight-member backing band have been working together for 20-plus years, and their chemistry is instantaneous and undeniable.

This the loudest I have ever heard a Tiny Desk Concert be. Dope!

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Tuxedo (Video)

A Tuxedo Tiny Desk Concert? Best ticket you didn’t even have to purchase. Check it out!

When Tuxedo arrived at NPR and Mayer Hawthorne spied a small ‘Ho!’ button sitting on Bob Boilen’s desk, he immediately beamed. “We use a big ‘Ho!’ button on tour,” he said. They didn’t bring a drummer, opting for a boombox — yes, a real boombox playing a real cassette tape, kids — and it was nostalgic delight from the start of the cassette’s hiss. The band was tight as ever, while their ace in the hole, Gavin Turek provided dance moves and the sweetest harmonies. Tuxedo set things off with a fan favorite from their first album, along with two [more] before closing it out with a red light special. It’s one thing to go against the grain for the sake of it — and another completely make it good. In this Tiny Desk concert, Tuxedo accomplished both.

Young Devyn ‘Riding Out’ To A Beat In The Passenger Seat (Video)

Wow! Young Devyn has been in the game since BEFORE becoming the 16-year-old phenom we’ve come to respect and check for. Seems crazy to say that an early teen has YEARS in the game, but then I think about the Golden Era (Da Youngstas, Shyheim The Rugged Child, all the way up through Buckshot Shorty and way more) and YEP! That’s how it was, and that’s how it is in real Hip-Hop.

Or, at least, how it is SUPPOSED to be. Stop with the mumblin’ young’ns… Get your BARZ up! Like Young Devyn.

Throwback/Comedy: Redd Foxx (1978 Standup Performance) [Video]

You’ve probably seen Redd Foxx be hilarious on ‘Sanford & Son’ on TV, or on ‘Harlem Nights’ with an ensemble cast of Black Hollywood through the late 1980s. But have you had the pleasure of seeing the late great comic do a standup? If not, cross it off your bucket list.
