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!

Mike Tyson Speaks On His Comedy Show, Mental Health, And Tupac (Video)

Crazy to think that if history would have worked out differently, Tupac would likely telling stories about how he was there at the Tyson fights. Instead, we get Iron Mike talking about ‘Pac and the night he was shot. Understandably, this saddens The Champ; as it does us all.

Good interview. You can even fire one up and smoke out while you watch… That way you can truly be like Mike. Haha!

Erika Alexander Speaks On Her Road In Life And Her Career So Far And Her Future Outlook For Entertainment And Her People (Video)

That title is a mouthful, and I swear it STILL does not begin to address the ground this interview covers. So full DJ Envy couldn’t even stay for the whole thing. Had Erika so ‘full’ talking about it she teared up at one point. And wow, Erika is still so gatdam beautiful… and insightful. Watch and digest. May need to rewind at a couple of points.

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.

Man. This is an awesome share (and kind of a tearjerker). Statik Selektah knew Mac Miller… pretty much from jump. Check out what he just put out in Miller’s honor and memory. Reflect and remember; maybe learn something new about dude. Celebrate Mac Miller’s life #RIPMacMiller

NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series Presents: Smif N Wessun (Video)

Not like they don’t belong on this forum. They do. Just did not expect to see them featured in their own Tiny Desk Concert. Very glad Smif-N-Wessun are though!

Brooklyn-bred Hip-Hop duo Smif-N-Wessun – consisting of partners in rhyme, Steele and Tek – illuminated the Tiny Desk with their signature, 80-proof poetry: straight, no chaser. Their music, inspired by their gritty and pre-gentrified Bedford-Stuyvesant and Brownsville neighborhoods, offers the vocabulary of veterans who survived the grimy streets. These original members of the Duck Down Records group Boot Camp Clik represent quintessential ’90s true-school Hip-Hop from the bedrock, when Timberland boots were standard issue. Backing Steele and Tek for the first time is D.C.’s own Black Alley band.
Abby O’Neill, NPR Music

(That “One Time” they wrapped with sounds extra nice.)

Comedian Katt Williams Speaks On Undeserved Fame Of Some Comedians And Roasts Co-Host Wanda Smith (Video)

On V-103’s Frank and Wanda In The Morning, Emmy-winning actor/comedian Katt Williams lit up the airwaves, sharing nuclear-hot takes on some of today’s top comedians, including Tiffany Haddish, Kevin Hart, Jerrod Carmichael, and Hannibal Buress. Watch as Williams calls some ugly, questions others’ talents, and suggests that race and colorism play roles in who Hollywood hires and why.

Yeah yeah. All that… but that’s not what made this thing go viral. When co-host Wanda Smith jumped over the fence and got in the middle of the melee. That’s when Katt’s scattered shots found focus. He got off all the other comedians and fanned all flame on Wanda. Too-hot-for-radio flames. So hot that [reportedly] the Smith men (her husband and sons) found Katt at a comedy club later and pulled a GUN on dude.

Wow. File this under ‘sticks and stones may break bones BUT HOW ABOUT WORDS ALMOST GETTING A COMIC SHOT OVER DISSING A MAN’S WIFE ON AIR!?

Watch. But only if you can stand the HEAT! Katt goes IN… smooth & vicious like. That said, he does make some good points…

(Hit the jump to see what Tiffany Haddish had to say via Twitter.)
