Last night at the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, the legendary Nasir Jones performed the entire debut album, Illmatic in full for the fans. Believe it or not, Nas had a teleprompter to ensure he wouldn’t miss any lyrics. Smart move Nas. During his set Nas brought out JAY Z to join him for “Dead Presidents” and also my personal favorite “Where I’m From”. Alongside bringing out Hova, Nas also brought out Diddy to grace the stage and perform their cut, “Hate Me Now”.
Check out the full set in it’s entirety after the break.
Wasn’t expecting a collaboration of this kind to ever happen. Apparently this is a leftover from Daft Punk’s latest album, Random Access Memories. Here’s an unheard collab from Daft Punk & JAY Z titled “Computerized”. 44
Produced by Kanye West?
After releasing a snippet yesterday here goes the full version of Ted Smooth’s remix of Beyoncé & Jay Z’s already legendary collaboration “Drunk In Love”. Those drums though.
Ok Ok Ok, it’s finally here! Ross has been boasting about his upcoming album, as he frequently does, and has been claiming that this record has potential to be bigger than their previous banger “F*ckwitmeyouknowigotit.” I shall say no more – new joint down below. Mastermind coming early next year.
From the record-breaking BEYONCÉ album, Queen Bey officially dropped the visual for “Drunk In Love” featuring her husband Jay Z (Produced by Detail and Beyonce). The scene is set to an erotic night on the beach…Beyoncé is turning up, booty bouncing, hair slinging and cuddling up to her boo thang. Check out the video directed by veteran Hype Williams.
Even though I’m not a fan of the song itself, but it’s always great to hear some new and unreleased Pimp C vocals. Yesterday a radio rip of the remix was released, but we held out to post the official CDQ version of the Pimp C featured “Tom Ford”. This kinda made the song a little better, always gotta respect the Pimp. R.I.P.
It’s not #TimbalandThursdays. He teased the fans with this track, but I wasn’t too please with what I heard. Today Timbo releases the track “Know Bout Me”, which features JAY Z, Drake & Fauntleroy. This is set to be on Timbo’s forthcoming album entitled Textbook Timbo. No Hov verse, but the beat is rather catchy and Timbaland handles the first verse while the others add there flavor.
A year ago, JAY Z launched a new festival in Philly. This year was the second time it was held, but this documentary shows how it all started it and how the first annual festival turned out.
