10 Classic Showtime at the Apollo Performances

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

These days, you can tune into any number of late night shows on various networks and you’re pretty much guranteed to come across at least one decent Rap performance per week. Failing that, you can always jump on Youtube or your favorite blog and review the countless live clips that find their way into the “cloud” each day. This was not the case in the 90s.

Back then if you wanted to see a live performance by your favorite rapper your options were limited to The Arsenio Hall Show, In Living Color and on Saturday nights, Showtime At The Apollo. The iconic Harlem stage, which hosted countless performances by the legendary Black artists of our time over many decades, also hosted some of Rap’s greatest. For the latest installment of our Video Vault series, we picked 10 of the best.

Video: Lauryn Hill Interview w/ MTV News Pt. 2

Tuesday, August 31st, 2010

Lauryn talks about her “jazz-like” live shows to MTV. I had to watch some footage before posting it and can tell you, as someone who knows The Fugees catalog inside-out, that shit was hot-trash. She chalks it up to spontaneity and improvisation. Yeah, no shit.

Video: Wyclef Talks Fugees Reunion w/ Angela Yee

Monday, October 19th, 2009

Clef explains to Miss Yee why we’re not likely to see a Fugees reunion album anytime soon (surprise surprise).

“The Fugees getting back together, the magic of it would have been the trust factor. They gotta be willing to put their career in my hands and I’ve got them. Which means like if I’m like do this in the studio you used to do it before, so why you don’t wanna do it now? So to me they’re great and they’re gonna always be great but the Fugees, it’s better that it leaves the myth vibe. Like the score is a myth when you hear it it’s a myth. It was done in the basement. Like you don’t wanna go from there to do a sequel and you’ve destroyed your complete myth.”

I totally agree. Leave it alone.
