Video: Lupe Fiasco “Sway In The Morning” Freestyle

Lupe Fiasco recently stopped by Sway’s satellite radio show and showed why if he’s not one of your favorites, he should be. When Sway asks: “You going to kick a written or a Freestyle?” Lu responds with “when people say freestyle, I freestyle!”

The act of “Freestyling” or creating lyrics and wordplay off the top or your head is a talent and skill many so-called emcee’s don’t posses. When done correctly it can create excitement and leave you hanging on to what the next words or phrase will be. Lupe definitely not only did that, but he held it down for 4 minutes and got busy!

Check it out below. Lu just dropped a new track called “Mission” as well. New album coming soon? Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Video: Outkast BACK! Full Coachella Set

Outkast.jpg

On New Years Day 2014 one of my friends wrote on Facebook “All I want this year is to see Outkast perform live!” Starting in November 2013 there were rumors that duo was getting back together in the new year specifically for Coachella. Sleepy Brown even posted something on Instagram hinting to the reunion, and soon after removed the update from his page.

Then a week into the new year it was official. Big Boi & Andre 3000 would not only be getting back together to celebrate their 20 year anniversary with a show at Coachella, they would also be doing a string of festivals this summer around the country. This is every true Outkast’s fan dream come true right? I mean it’s only been 7 years, which has felt like a decade in the fast pace landscape of life these days.

Well for those couldn’t make it to California for Coachella, including myself, thanks to the good ole Internet you could of watched the live stream last night online, OR… You can watch the full show below.

Outkast will be playing in Georgia at the Counterpoint Festival during the weekend of April 25-27. There is also rumor going around about them playing at the Mad Decent Block Party in ATL this summer, which I’ve heard from a reputable source is false. As of now they will only be appearing on the Denver, Colorado date in August.

Alright… enough text, below is what you really want to see, so check it out. Am I the only one that finds it odd Dre is walking around with a corded microphone? Other than bad sound, there’s nothing more restricting to artists performance on a large stage than a cordless mic. And seems like the stage lighting was very dark throughout their set. Let me know what you think of the set. Do you have tickets booked to see Outkast this summer?

Video: Q-Tip at Red Bull Music Academy (NYC)

The Red Bull Music Academy is an international workshop that has been happening annually for the past 15 years. Earlier this year it took place in NYC. While this video is over 5 months old, it’s also 2 hours long, and I’m JUST getting a chance to finally finish watching the whole thing. Thought it would be great to share, and if you don’t have 2 hours right now to watch it… Bookmark it and come back. Press play below to see Chairman Mao & Q-Tip chop it up on everything from equipment, production techniques, and what challenges Q-Tip.

Video: 4-Ize – “How’d That Work Out”

One of the most important things in human existence is stories. Stories are the links and connections between cultures, places, things, etc. They allow our brains to remember things easily, and they are passed from person to person.

One of the most interesting people I’ve ever met is emcee 4-IZE, and he has an amazing story not many people know about. On this new track “How’d That Work Out” he shares of story of where he’s from to where’s he’s gone as well as all the interesting things that happened along the way. Being present in the studio in the 9th Wonder session, I can definitely share stories of those sessions, but I’ll let 4-IZE share with you when he’s ready. In the meantime… Check out the new video and enjoy your Christmas. Stay tuned for 4IZE.COM for new music.

Video: N.O.R.E. aka Papi Feat. Large Professor – Built Pyramids

Two Queens legends who have never worked together. Well… I guess it’s better late than never. New joint from N.O.R.E. who is officially calling himself Papi… I think I’ll stick to calling him NORE for a while. Lol. Large Pro on the track and it’s called “Built Pyramids.” If I was from Queens, this would be my anthem right now.
