Last week, PBS aired the American Epic Sessions concert special which featured a number artists including Elton John, Alabama Shakes and Raphael Saadiq performing vintage and original tracks utilizing recording equipment and instruments from the 1920’s. Last month we got to see Nas and Jack White’s performance of a 1928 Blues song called “On The Road Again” by Memphis Jug Band, but here’s a nice bonus clip. Watch above as Nas, Jack and the accompanying band do a truly unique rendition of “One Mic” using the same primitive technology.

Remy Ma Put Nicki Minaj on The Summer Jam Screen

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Last night at Hot 97’s annual Summer Jam, Remy Ma brought a veritable who’s who of female MC’s on stage with her for a moment of unity before then proceeding to absolutely drag Nicki Minaj. Remy was joined onstage by the likes of MC Lyte, Queen Latifah, Lil Kim, Lady of Rage, Young M.A and Cardi B, before closing out her set with a scathing live performance of her Nicki diss “ShETHER” while several embarrassing images flashed across the infamous screen.

During a recent listening session for 2 Chainz upcoming album Pretty Girls Like Trap Music, guests heard a preview of Nicki’s verse on the song “Realize” during which she explicitly calls out Remy with a line that suggests Papoose wrote “ShETHER” and references the copyright trouble Remy encountered for using the “Ether” instrumental. So yeah, this beef is likely to live on through the Summer and possibly beyond.

Watch both below.
