Video: Childish Gambino Calls Out Drake, Kendrick, ScHoolBoy Q During Live Freestyle

Monday, July 28th, 2014

During a performance at the Hordern Pavilion in Australia the other night, Mr. Glover got on some “Control” shit and started rattling off the names of rappers he believes he’s better than and threatened to come at their necks. The targets of his vitriol were Kendrick, ScHoolBoy Q and Drake. Everybody’s talking about this on social media is as if it’s some big deal, but again, this is Hip-Hop and this is what’s supposed to happen in Hip-Hop. Aggression, slick talk and the competitive spirit . So if you want to hear the verse yourself, it’s starts about 2:00 in, just remember Rap is and will always be wrestling and we need shit like this to happen in order to keep these guys on their toes.

Video: Action Bronson & Meyhem Lauren Freestyle at Peterpalooza

Thursday, July 24th, 2014

“Shorty suck me ’til my dick broke/All I was wearing was my Knicks coat.”

I sadly wasn’t in attendance last night to see Action Bronson perform at my old friend Peter Rosenberg’s birthday concert at Best Buy Theater, but thankfully, some very ill footage of him and Meyhem Lauren freestyling over Mobb Deep and Kool G Rap’s Alchemist-produced Queens classic “The Realest” found its way onto YouTube. As Bronson says before unleashing some never-before-heard bars, “I’m just gonna rap some shit I fuckin’ thought of today.” He also adds, “This is my favorite beat.” Shouts to ALC on the wheels of steel, and Laurenavitch who kills it as well.


UPDATED: Prior to the show, TMZ caught up with Bronson outside and asked him about his infamous Port-a-Potty performance. Watch below.

Video Vault: 25 Classic Jay Z Television Performances

Sunday, June 29th, 2014


Words by Daniel Isenberg (@StanIpcus)

Jay Z just embarked on yet another high-grossing Summer tour earlier this week, this time with his superstar wife Beyonce as the co-headliner. While young new artists continue to build up their following on the road, and legendary acts keep their careers alive off show money, Hov will be comfy cozy on his private jet flying city to city, padding his family bank account and perhaps Blue Ivy’s college fund with new bags of bills. But the route from Marcy Projects to mansions in the Hamptons didn’t come without continuous hard work. Jigga’s been out here doing this for a minute now (his debut Reasonable Doubt just turned 18 on June 25th), and though his career lifestyle has become more luxurious, it’s still a grind.

To help kick off Jay’s latest tour with wifey, we gathered up 25 Classic Jay Z Television Performances—dating back to 1996 and spanning his entire career—for our latest Video Vault. These TV clips feature on-stage performances with everyone from Beanie Sigel to UGK to Eminem to Lenny Kravitz to the Queen Bey herself, and there’s a few Dame Dash cameos to enjoy as well. Also included is a nice batch of past BET Awards performances to warm you up for tonight’s big show. Throw your diamonds up, the Roc is in the building!
