The Goodie Mob Perform Their New Single ‘Fight To Win’ On NBC’s ‘The Voice’ (Video)

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.

D’Angelo Performs First Live Show in 11 Years (Video)

The soulful voice behind classic albums Brown Sugar and Voodoo seems to be finally back after an 11 year hiatus. Even though D’Angelo’s absence had much more to do with personal troubles than lack of musical inspiration,it looks like the good brother is back on the right track. He was spotted at Filadelfiakyrkan in Stockholm, Sweden performing new joints along with classic joints like “Chicken Grease” and “Shit, Damn, Motherfucker” to a lively crowd, with the energy and passion that we grown accustomed to from D’Angelo. I also see the homie Kendra Foster doing her thing signing background!! No word on an album just yet, but things are looking up. We need you D!!!

Common Freestyling at Vanquish Nightclub in Atlanta (Video)

Shout out to the homie Wilt for putting us on the guestlist for this event that took place tonight at the new Vanquish nightclub on Peachtree street here in Atlanta. . Common’s new album “The Dreamer, The Believer” is definitely one of the best, if not the best hip hop album, to drop recently but that’s not stopping the Chicago emcee from making his rounds in Atlanta to ‘keep pushing’ like Curtis Mayfield. Check out this special freestyle Common spit following a question & answer session at this invite only event that took place tonight…..
