Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

This is #VeryRare. It’s not often that you hear a verse from ?uestlove, but at the recent Roots Jam Session in LA, he gave Black Thought an assist with his performance of “The Lesson Pt. 1″, from the 1995 album Do You Want More?!!!??!, by filling in for Dice Raw and reciting his entire verse while drumming with one hand. Watch above and enjoy, because as he notes at the end, you’ll probably never see this happen again!

Kanye played a surprise show at KOKO in London Tuesday evening and by all accounts it was quite an event. Guests included Big Sean, Wu-Tang Clan, Skepta and CyHi The Prynce. Also present was Vic Mensa and in addition to “Wolves”, the SAVEMONEY MC joined Ye in a performance of a brand new previously unheard track. We don’t have a title yet, but it sounds like a winnner.
