Dev Hynes, aka Blood Orange, appeared as musical guest on Thursday night’s airing of Conan. Backed by dancers and seated at the piano, Hynes opened his performance with a live version of “Augustine.” The 30-year-old followed that up with “Thank You,” as he kneeled down in front of framed photos of Philando Castile (a victim of police brutality), T Mack, and Hande Kader (a transgender activist killed in Turkey).

He also sat down for an interview with Robin Roberts, speaking on his Muhammad Ali tribute, being on Obama’s Summer playlist and his relationship with God. “People are afraid to speak about God to a certain extent, and I think if you’re not free to speak about God, then you’re not free,” he said.

the simpsons hip hop

The Simpsons only has a brief relationship with hip-hop — we’ve seen cameos from 50 Cent, Cypress Hill and Pharrell, and who can forget Bart’s short-lived rap career? — but for the show’s upcoming 28th season, Matt Groening and co. are planning their very first hour-long episode with a hip-hop twist.

t.i. eric andre

You either get The Eric Andre Show or you don’t — and that goes for the show’s guests, too. There’s people like Tyler, The Creator who know exactly how to play along with Eric Andre and Hannibal Buress’ brilliantly bizarre gags. And then there’s folks like Lauren Conrad, who are woefully unprepared and end up walking off the show in a state of nausea. T.I. made an appearance on the season four premiere of The Eric Andre Show last Friday, and he was more Lauren Conrad than Tyler, The Creator.

seth rogen lip sync battle drake

The (original) Lip Sync Battle made a triumphant return to The Tonight Show last night as Jimmy Fallon and Seth Rogen went line-to-line with a few hip-hop classics. Fallon brought the energy with covers of Kent Jones’ “Don’t Mind” and Onyx’s “Slam,” but it was Rogen who stole the show, first by teaming up with Black Thought and co. for a live playback of The Roots’ “Mellow My Man” (bonus points for the afro pick mic). Then, he brought it home with a hilarious performance of Drake’s “Hotline Bling,” complete with a turtleneck sweater and grandpa dancing.

lauryn hill

Lauryn Hill may have bailed on performing at the Grammys earlier this year, but she did show up for a special performance on Austin City Limits recently. The full concert is set to air this Saturday on PBS, but today you can enjoy this exclusive clip of Ms. Hill slaying a rendition of “Mystery of Iniquity” — the song that was famously repurposed by Kanye West on “All Falls Down” — while backed by a live band.

Hopefully Lauryn Hill can carry this form into the fall as she’s also announced a string of North American tour dates. Her 17-city trek kicks off in Philadelphia on August 27 before making its final stop in Phoenix on November 13.

Update: Lauryn also performs “Ready or Not,” “Jammin,” and “Master Blaster” covers.

Check out Lauryn Hill’s performance and tour dates below…
