The Native Tongues legends hit Jimmy Fallon’s late-late night stage to pre-game before their performance this weekend at the Great Googa Mooga food festival in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
The hip hop luminaries will celebrate 25 years of hard work with a new album, You’re Welcome, dropping this fall. Here is the first single from that project.
This year Paid Dues Festival had 23,000+ music lovers in attendance to witness some of the biggest and influential acts in hip-hop. Artists featured on the lineup included Fashawn and Murs, Joey Bada$$, Juicy J and the special guests of the night, Black Hippy.
From Kendrick Lamar having a notable set at 2012′s Paid Dues to Black Hippy headlining this year’s festival, it goes to show that TDE is a dominant figure in today’s music. Opening up with the remix to Ab-Soul’s “Black Lip Bastard (Remix)“, the crew emerged from fog to deliver an energetic set for the excited fans. After that performance, the Black Hippy members had their own individual sets starting with Jay Rock, followed by Ab-Soul, Schoolboy Q and then last but not least, Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick did songs from his critically-acclaimed album Good Kid, M.A.A.D. City. He even considered performing “Sing About Me, I’m Dying of Thirst” after seeing the engagement he and the crowd had, but decided to end with “Cartoons and Cereal”. Check out some of the dopehouse’s shots of the event down bottom.
