Tarica June – “But Anyway” (Live Performance) [Video]

Hmmm… I remember coming across Tarica years ago. Really taking the underground route to success on her own terms. Looks like she is still on that railroad, and we get to look at some tracks she is riding… live!

Here’s a special acoustic performance filmed at one of my favorite places: Nubian Hueman! … Of course one of the songs I did was But Anyway (with a new verse!!) so that’s the one I’m sharing first. Special thanks to Tyler Moonlight on keys and thanks to Anika Hobbs of Nubian Hueman for having me!

The Goodie Mob performed on national television last night debuting their new single “Fight To Win” on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ where Cee-Lo is the host.  This particular song is very “Cee-Lo heavy” with the singing, but I guess it’s appropriate for the platform they were on last night.

SXSW: Santigold- “Disparate Youth” Fader Fort Performance (Video)

SXSW: Jay Z AMEX Sync Show (Video)

I wasn’t impressed with Jay-Z’s performance but neither was I surprised at the rather lukewarm response from the audience. Jay-Z forgot the lyrics to two of his songs in this video & the audience evidently is not that familiar with his catalog. As a guy who’s traveled the world I’ve been saying for a while that Jay-Z is not as popular a rap artist by himself around the world as a performing artist compared to someone like Kanye, Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, or Eminem. Here in the states some fans will argue with you, but apparently the same thing can be seen here too at SXSW amongst the so-called fans that aren’t strongly “urban”. (Shrugs) Nice hat.

Yasiin Bey (Mos Def) & Talib Kweli Rock Paris As ‘Black Star’ (Video)

Super Bowl XLVI Halftime Show (Video)

Madonna was the headliner during this visually spectacular halftime show during Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, but she brought several friends along like Nicki Minaj, LMFAO, Cee-Lo & more but it was M.I.A. who everyone was talking about afterwards after she flipped the “F*ck You” finger into the cameras before the censors at NBC could catch it.
