Video: Wiz Khalifa Brings Out Drake in Toronto

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014

Last night the Under The Influence of Music Tour hit Toronto and Wiz had a surprise for the crowd. Drake joined him onstage and blessed concertgoers with performances of “Trophies” and “Started From The Bottom”.

We recently spoke to Wiz about him and Drake’s on-stage blunt cypher at Houston Appreciation Weekend and much more, check that out here.

Related: Drake and Lil Wayne’s “Believe Me” hits #1 on the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay chart, marking the 14th time a song featuring Mr. Graham has held that spot. With that ranking, Drake beats out previous record holder Usher’s 13 #1s.

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.
