Hahaa! Might need to circle back around and check out some of the work folks put out for this challenge. Making these hilarious ADD folks into a video game… I’m laughing already.

DJ Nu-Mark – “Leo Mix” (Video)

Crazy dope thing is… I always envision/mimic deejays when I am really into the mixes they are doing. And seeing them in action only enhances the enjoyment. Of course, live is best. But video of a deejay going in… SO DOPE! Check out DJ Nu-Mark and see if you agree.

Rest Well Sean Price, Because Wifey Got You On The Mic (Video)

Gonna let Ras Kass tell you about this Sean Price mini-tribute. I have seen footage of his wife rock with Rock on this Heltah Skeltah track, and it still chokes me up a bit when I see Sean’s wife step in like this. Plus, I think she is getting better.

(Hit the jump for the music video from back in the day.)

This Was Dope. Rockness & Bernadette (Sean Price wife) spitting his verse prod. by E Swift, Tha Alkaholiks show & myself. Mad friends & celebs in the building…

Throwback: Run-DMC x Jam Master Jay [Live] (Video)

I remember reading in some Public Enemy album liner notes that when the group was looking for a DJ (who would eventually be Terminator X), they were looking for a ‘Jam Master Jay level’ deejay. WHAT?! You know how all powdered soft drinks are called Kool-Aid, or how all in-line skates are called RollerBlades? Jam Master Jay was like that… the industry standard!

Watch JMJ start the show like a pro, then watch Run-DMC come shut sh!t down!! Awesome jewel from back in the day (September 1984). Hip-Hop forever!!

Action Bronson | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #065 (Video)

LOL! Somebody let Bronson the bucking bull loose in the Funk Flex fine china shop, and dude cracked and stomped on all the best dishes. Can’t tell you what this is – all this – but you gotta see it. Dope!

(Flex didn’t know WTF was happening, but he was hanging on for the ride. Haahahaaa! Lights, camera, Action Bronson!)

Watch Action Bronson Performing Live At ‘Rolling Loud 2017’ (Video) [Not Safe For Work]

Whether you knew it or not, you are getting it. Action Bronson doing almost an hour live and rocking the sh!t out the stage… and shouting out ‘Walking In The Rain’ singer Oran Juice Jones and iconic movie and rap star Will Smith (for real)… and going to grab his phone and deejaying himself (yeah, for real).

And if you thought wilding out and going informal style like that was as far as he’d go to bring the crowd in… you have not been paying attention to Bronson over the years. All kinds of porn, pot and more will be referenced in this show.

Did… did he call his MOM a lucky slut???

Yoooo… Strap in! Unless you are the hotties acting out starting around the 16-minute mark, because they are setting them boobies free (hence the Not Safe For Work rating)!!

Nas Raps The Hook To ‘Shook Ones’ In tribute To Prodigy (Video)

To be honored by one’s peers has to be one of the fondest wishes of many an artist across genres. Emceeing is an art. And when a G.O.D.M.C. shouts out a Prodigy R.I.P. and rocks a crowd to the Mobb Deep joint… Chokes me up. Nas. Bless!

Nas – “One Mic” feat. Jack White (Live Performance) [Video]

Remember that American Epic piece for PBS featuring Nas that we posted on a while back (linked here)? Well, on that same old-to-the-new tribute vibe, here is the G.O.D.M.C. doing his instant classic off the “Stillmatic” LP – “One Mic” – live with Jack White (formerly of The White Stripes).

Girls Gone Viral: Black Beach Weekend 2017 (Biloxi, Mississippi, USA) [Video]

Wowzerrrrs ma’ams and sirs! By now you know, or ought to know, that I am from Alabama. Begs the question of me: WHERE did all them thick Alabama molasses asses in this vid come from, and WHY did they all flood Mississippi like this and not tell me???

Oh, Black Beach Weekend. They still do it like that? Apparently so. And I’ain’even know must be getting old *sigh*

Now, it might just be me, but I must warn y’all that there is a HIGH degree of ratchet roaming about. Not mad at that. Folks getting ratchet provide the best batches (drink, smoke, photos, videos, and all kinds of ASStonishing things). The music you’ll hear is the perfect soundtrack for all that hood hectic (fair warning). Young Black folks going WILD for sure. But I saw some hustlers handling biz, too. Every archetype from the trickster/gambler, to the curbside fry cook, to a weed edibles salesman. Then you see folks walking and flashing the fly liquors and folks riding in the big body vehicles with even bigger rims. All that kind of stuff I remember from back in the day for the most part.

But THEN you get new school star power. Sure, rumpshakers alone will get views. But how about folks who are already viral stars out there? Coming to the stage NOLA’s own PATTIWHACK and Dancing DanRue (around the 7 minute mark) getting live baaaaby with the ‘Peter Piper pick a pan… Yeeeeaaaah!’

Hahaaa! I’m not mad at y’all overall Biloxi (but some YouTube commenters are apparently… chill will’ya… sheezus). Do you! But at least send home some of them juicy ‘Bama yum-yums though.

Conway x Benny x Westside Gunn | Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #060 (Video)

Everybody can’t come up here… Flex speaks truth regarding most of his recent featured Freestyles. This one especially. To hammer home the point, VERY few can come through like Conway, Benny, and Westside Gunn did in this ep.

The whole entire came through with them, didn’t they? Haa!

Samuel L. Jackson Acts Out His Film Career With James Corden (Video)

When has Corden not been funny? Now, add Jackson to the comedy mix and you get comedic GOLD! Great trip back through some awesome cinema (lots of ‘gunshots’ in there LOL).

Samuel L. Jackson and James Corden act out snippets from Samuel’s legendary film career, covering everything from “Pulp Fiction” to “Jurassic Park.”
– The Late Late Show with James Corden

Okay this is HILARIOUS but actually pretty good, too (esp. the remembering and delivering all those lines like that)!

Snoop Dogg – “Trash Bags” (Live Performance)

These guys know how to mix fun and serious business. Jimmy Kimmel and Snoop Dogg doing the damn thing on the tube again; not ‘roasting’ on Comedy Central, rather with Snoop performing “Trash Bags” on Jimmel Kimmel Live.

And the re-THICK-ulous dancing girls on stage made it an extra ‘special’ night on stage. But for something really special, hit the jump (more footage of Snoop’s time with Kimmel).

ESPN President John Skipper Speaks At The Tuskegee University Commencement And…

…it was a CELEBRATION! Strike up the band… the best band in the land, the Tuskegee University Golden Virtuosos!!

Wow. I have a LOT of family and friends who are Tuskegee Institute and Tuskegee University alumni. I may well have attended myself, but The University Of Alabama ended up being the best option (financially, mainly) for continuing my education post-high school. However, anyone who grew up in ‘Skegee can tell you that TU and the town that surrounds it are bound in many ways; especially on Football Saturdays (Homecoming Weekend = Off The Meter!) and special commemorations. So, I may not be a TU alum, but I am a true Tuskegeean (46!)… and trust me, that is way past close enough for me join in celebrating this.

See more footage and some of what students and Presidents Skipper and Johnson had to say on this occasion after the jump.

(Wonder if any of this made SportsCenter over the weekend? Best bet for worthy coverage is ESPN’s ‘The Six’ with Jemele Hill and Michael Smith.)

Charlie Musselwhite & Nas Speak On The Music Of The 1920s And Of Today (Teaser Trailer)

They were rapping about street life and gangsta life…
Nas, Speaking On “On the Road Again” By Memphis Jug Band

A great look for PBS, this episode of “American Epic Sessions” features Charlie Musselwhite (of Memphis Jug Band) and Nas. That line from Greg Nice comes to mind: This is how we take the old to the new. Hear Nas speak on the timelessness and relevance of Musselwhite’s music. And see a bit of the performance of Nas’ cover of “On the Road Again”

(Hip-Hop flavor from the 1920s. Cool!)

‘5 Minutes Of Funk’ With DJ Diamond (Video)

DJ Diamond did the damn thang on this ep. of #5MinutesOfFunk though yo. Nothing not to love about it when Funkmaster Flex goes back to the elements. The emcees doing the Freestyles… and now, Turntable Tuesday.

Know that saying, “Time flies” right? Well, it is especially true when a DJ is having fun blacking out on the wheels… like how 5 Minutes becomes 12 Minutes Of Funk. Haaaa! Good stuff!

Hasan Minhaj (Of The Daily Show) Gives An Roast Epic Speech At The White House Correspondents’ Dinner (Video)

Ohhhhhh shhhheeeeeeeiiiit! I wanted to categorize this as comedy, but this is more. This is even more biting than mere satire; plenty of BITE. Don Rickles (RIP) level roasting of an entire room AND of The President… you know, at the WHITE HOUSE Correspondents’ event that they have EVERY year.

Daily Show correspondent Hasan Minhaj took full advantage of Donald Trump’s absence by taking aim at The President and his administration during his monologue at the White House Correspondents’ dinner.
Global News

I’m sure it was on his calendar. But hell, I cannot blame him. Some of this sh!t BURNED, but it seems like everyone took it in stride. And I do mean everyone, because ‘The Daily Show’ Correspondent Hasan Minhaj gave a taste to EVERYONE: Not just the POTUS, but key officials in his Administration, with shots for Fox News, CNN, MSNBC, even C-SPAN (who broadcasts the event annually)!

You HAVE to watch, but strap up and sack up. Hasan is hella funny, but his speech hits hella HARD! Whew.
