Pharrell – Runnin (Live on Ellen)

Thursday, January 5th, 2017

Pharrell Williams stopped by The Ellen Show to perform “Runnin”, one of several songs he wrote and performed for The Hidden Figures film soundtrack for which he has been nominated for a Golden Globe. You may have been aware of his appearance because of the controversy surrounding some shitty comments made about gays by gospel vocalist Kim Burrell, who also appears on the soundtrack. Obviously, Ellen doesn’t play that shit and Burrell’s appearance was swiftly canceled. Continue below to see what P had to say about all of it.

Talib Kweli’s “Surveillance State Freestyle” on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee

Friday, December 16th, 2016

It’s no secret that Full Frontal with Samantha Bee on TBS is the spiritual successor to the Jon Stewart-era of The Daily Show. Apologies to Trevor Noah, but it just is. Check ou this new Mr. Robot themed segment with Ashley Nicole Black that is both informative and educational about the very real problem of mass government surveillance and how it is likely to get much, much worse under the Trump administration, particularly for people of color and other marginalized groups. Be sure to stick around until the 5:33 mark where Talib Kweli lays down a “Surveillance State Freestyle” over his classic “Get By” instrumental. It’s almost not funny because it’s true.
