Video: Rakim @ VH1’s Hip Hop Honors

Here’s a sneak peak of Rakim performing his new song ‘It’s Nothing’ at VH1’s Hip Hop Honors. Some dude from VH1 sent me a link to the video in Windows Media format and I went over to Youtube to upload it, but I noticed the good people at Greasyguide.com had beaten me to it. I also see that they made it to the No Sleep Til Brooklyn exhibit in DUMBO on Thursday night, which I also happened to be at. (Note: a good way to get eskay to show up at anything is to mention free beer.) I have a bunch of pics that I may or may not get around to posting at some point. Last night I caught EPMD’s reunion show at B.B. King’s, more on that later.


Piece of advice for all you promotional types who are always sending me audio and video streams: save everybody a bunch of time and aggravation by Youtubing this stuff and then sending out the links. That’s where it’s gonna end up anyway, and no self respecting blogger is going to link to a Windows Media or Realplayer stream. Plus, what the hell do I want with a shitty Windows stream of a song that I posted in mp3 format a month ago? That’s a good way to tell who actually reads your blog and who just blindly threw you on a mailing list.

Anyway, if your Youtube search game is tight, you’ll be able to find a bunch of camera phone footage from the show, such as this clip of Q-Tip, Diddy, and Fab doing their tribute to The Beastie Boys. I guess VH1 expects me to mention that the show will air on Tuesday the 17th at 9:00, so there you go.
