Performance: Erykah Badu – “Didnt’Cha Know” (Video)

Erykah letting us know it’s gonna be alright. With an intimate mini-concert performance from out the house; looks like from the living room. The band is masked up, but Ms. Badu is going ‘mask off’ in every way. Shouting out to her folks, including her babies’ fathers.

I like it. Badu The Badoula, and her energy, is just so dope. Give thanks and enjoy the clip!

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Soul Right” (Video)

I can’t hold no grudges. My hands is too busy catching blessings.

BLESS!

So Freddie just dropped off all kinds of fire for Vevo when he fell through to do some Ctrl recording, huh? Check that. He performed that for The Nation! Us. We are The Nation. The Hip-Hop Nation! Click above and get your “Soul Right.”

Wanna know where the hotness is? Go to the fans. The Hip-Hop outlet Ambrosia For Heads did just that when they asked people to assess last year’s best Hip-Hop discs. The results rang out: Freddie Gibbs’ album with Madlib, ‘Bandana,’ ruled. The Midwest rapper’s collab with the SoCal producer is a great mix of perspectives. Gibbs’ street attitude and natural grit meshes well with Mad’s cinematic sounds (check “Massage Seats”) and deep beats. A followup to 2014’s acclaimed ‘Piñata’ disc, ‘Bandana’ is a powerhouse that swerves from lane to lane without fretting about its exact location at any given moment. “I’m not no boom-bap rapper or whatever the f**k that sh*t is,” Freddie recently told GQ. “I’m not a trap rapper. You can’t really put me in a box, man.” ‘Cept for that one in our Brooklyn studio. Gibbs said yes to Vevo’s Ctrl invite, and came to crush “Cataracts” and “Soul Right,” two of Bandana’s hottest tracks. Feel free to share ’em.

Performance: Freddie Gibbs – “Cataracts” (Video)

Whatever Gibbs has got going on while trying to make it through this Coronaviral Era now thrust upon us, I think he will be okay. And we will be okay. His ‘lock in’ at the house is probably not as much a lock down as a chill out (because smoking on that good ‘script’). But before going in, Crtl let the man in to bless their mic and spit on his Rx for them “Cataracts” (HA)!

Comedy/Performance: Paris Sashay Speaks On Her First D**k Being The Biggest She Could Get (Video)

I mean, dating in the 21st century is craaaazy… and apparently waaaay more expensive than I could imagine. Especially, for a fly pimpstress like Paris Sashay. But I’m not sure if many can play how she play. I think I will stick with my smaller, but less expensive (read: FREE)… um… ‘joystick’ out here in the dating game. HA!

Paris Sashay talks about going on an inadvertently expensive first date and recalls buying a dildo and a pair of shoes to accommodate her girlfriend’s kinky request. (Contains strong language.)

4-IZE – “Verse 164” (Prod. By Mudnoc) [Video]

You know what? 4-IZE has a point: Where are all the flying cars?? We haven’t even gotten self-driving cars out and about yet. We are behind schedule with the sci-fi tech we are supposed to have by now. Good thing we got these unbelievable flows (but believe, because FACTS) from Bro4 though.

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

Ayeeeeeee! Let the party happen! It’s a vibe, not a wave. That’s why your body (and soul) sway as you enjoy this performance straight from the Tiny Desk. If you are at a ‘tiny desk’ of your own right now, know that you will soon be free… as soon as you press play above!

Above all, what makes Koffee so refreshing is that she centers her music around faith, resilience and gratitude. She has a new perspective to add to the pantheon of mostly male reggae greats and it’s resonating with a new generation that’s just getting hip to the iconic sounds. As her Tiny Desk performance shows, Koffee makes the best of her surroundings, channeling the day’s buzzy energy into a balancing act of youthful heart and old-pro precision, proving why she has become one of the most invigorating voices in reggae.

Neek Bucks – “Bars On I-95 Freestyle” (Video)

Listen! Other hosts might say it, but everybody can’t come up on the I-95. The mic is INVITATION ONLY! And the ones that get that invite, and come through with the do-what-they-do… WHEW! You see why they got invited every time.

Neek Bucks got his invitation. And maaaan did he come through with the BARZ!

Bars On I-95, Connecticut’s number 1 Rap platform for your favorite Hip-Hop artists. We love when veterans come on our platform and show the new guys how to get it done.

Hailing from Harlem New York, Neek Bucks is a MC we call a breath of fresh air. Independently been building his brand and working diligently, we sent him an invite, he came and got right to it. TAP IN!

Royce Da 5’9 | The L.A. Leakers | Freestyle #100 (Video)

It’ll take me nothing to put your life on the Dollar Menu, like Egg McMuffin.

Doing anything 100 times is work. One hundred episodes of any show is a big deal for any series. The L.A. Leakers series notwithstanding; and they figured out how to make this even more special… bigger… by bring in someone to bring in the BARZ and keep it 100 on episode 100. So here we go.. Royce Da 5’9!
