My pal FWMJ sent over this audio of Mos Def performing the second part of “Act 1: Eternal Sunshine (the Pledge)” during his JVC Jazz Festival show with Gil Scott-Heron. The orchestra follows with a bit of the “Eternal Sunshine” movie soundtrack. Wow.
Its a bit echo-y in the legendary music hall, but you can see how hip hop lyrical works will be re-performed and analyzed for centuries to come : )
what difference does it make if Amy Winehouse called Kanye the c-word? Her insult made no sense, and was totally baseless, and ineffective because……um, hello? She’s out of mind on crack/crank/coke/drank/dust/dope who knows what else. Do you get offended when the mentally-ill bum on the corner curses out the fire hydrant?
The real issue is….what is the true motivation for booking a woman (who should be in a in-patient rehab) who performs like this…..
my fellow Korean in the game, marketing honcho Mark of the Electric Army, scored pics and footage from the new Re Up Gang* video for “Fast Life” off the upcoming Till the Casket Drops album. Directed by Dale “Rage” Resteghini, who did vids for Gym Class Heroes and Byrd Gang.
*I had called it a Clipse song, but it seems that Re Up Gang is more accurate. What’s the difference between the two?
Yo, I love this….that after all the bitching and moaning that Noel Gallagher from Oasis did about how hip hop has no place at the huge UK music festival…Jay-Z didnt just tighten up on some, cough-up-a-lung-Marcy-son machismo…..he rose to the occasion with the best 1-2 punch of all….humility….followed by devilish humor.
The humility was in the interview segments that Hov did before the show. Talking about how he understood the resistance but that this was a big moment for hip hop’s progression. Word and word.
The “pisser” was this…
For those who never listen to any Oasis, Jay is singing*** their hit “Wonderwall,” which Hov opens with the awesomely appropriate line “I dont believe that anybody feels that way I do about you now.” Zing!
(***um, I’m using that term loosely, lol, he sounds like me singing Tevin Campbell at a norebang (korean karaoke) after a couple forced shots of Crown (yuck).
And prior to the Glastonbury show there were some laughs at at another interview show…after the jump (more…)
