The day after Asleep in the Bread Aisle hit stores (and took over the number one spot on iTunes) Asher performed in NYC at the Gramercy Theater. The above playlist features Lark On My Go-Kart, Good Health Freestyle, Blunt Cruisin, As I Em, Be By Myself, Roth Boys (in that order) a Chester French performance and Oren Yoel holding it down for solo. Shouts to Grofoshows on the footage.
Check out Javid’s interview with Kid Cudi from the super exclusive Alife Rivington Club sneaker store in New York. Fresh from his performances at the SXSW music conference Kid Cudi talks about how his mixtape A Kid Named Cudi blew up, working with Kanye West & T-Pain in Hawaii, possibly, just possibly getting on Jay-Z’s new album, changing the game, groupie love and more. Oh yeah Kid Cudi also shows us his customer service skills – answering the Alife phone lines and helping a faithful customer get his Air Jordan’s. Shout out to Ohio!
Now excuse me, I have to head out to the tat shop.
Here we got Serius & Skyzoo on the second installment of Street Politicz; as they speak on what they both bring to the game and if the DJ is the reason why people say NYC fell off.
The other night Nasir put on quite the show (from what I see from these YouTube clips) at the Hammerstein Ballroom. To everyone’s surprise Esco brought out AZ to perform Life`s a Bitch (above) and Phone Tap (after the jump) as well as Large Pro for Live at the BBQ (after the jump as well). Enjoy the footage…
So Donny Goines wrapped up his BARS series with a special performance last night in NYC. Getting a slew of dope emcees to join in. Here is some footage (courtesy of Music Addicts Only) to check out before the DVD is released. Donny Goines, Mickey Factz, Skyzoo, Sha Stimuli, Torae, Panama, Melo X, Phase One, Mista Mista, Esso and Apinks with K Salaam DJ’ing. Talk about a line up. Parts 2 and 3 are after the jump…
One of XXL’s Freshman 10 spits a freestyle at Crack Distributors Radio (above) during his interview, which will drop next week. Shouts to Shine. Also, hit the jump for footage of Mickey Factz, Gunz, Rain, Red Cafe & Vic Damone performing in NYC at the We Put On For Our City show at Club Element…

The homie John over at Loud got some footage of Mickey Factz & Asher Roth on stage at LOVE in NYC (above). Mickey goes in and Asher spits one my favorite verses from him. That shit is real imo. Then after the jump you can check Q-Tip spit a verse a capella from Wild Hot. Now can we get the Amanda Diva footage that was cut off?
Check out as Mazzi & S.O.U.L. Purpose perform in NYC. Then after the jump for some random footage of Mazzi, A.P. Termanology, Rik Cordero, Kid Cudi, etc at the Knitting Factory….
Apparently before the clip starts Kanye was talking about not being selfish with instrumentals and asked if he could play a new beat for the audience and invited Hov to come out. Hov jumped on stage and performed what seems to be a new record. I can’t really hear it clear but his flow seems retarded on this one. UPDATE: I had to bring this back to the top as better footage was released. New joint, Blueprint 3 bitches! UPDATE: The official title of the record is Dope Boy Fresh. *throws up the diamond. Hov loves 2dopeboyz!
Not sure if you know but I’m a huge fan of 88 so all this new stuff in the works has me hyped. Even though he’s not stopping by Vegas during the Fresh, Rhymes & Videotape Tour alongside Dilated Peoples, Aceyalone & The Alchemist, it’s ok. Check the above video (taped by the sexy DJ Syncity) of 88-Keys in NYC where he had his debut performance opening up for Brand Nubian. If you listen you can hear a preview of Stay Up (Viagra), a joint featuring Kanye West off his upcoming album, The Death Of Adam, dropping in August.
My man Court Dunn hit me with some cool footage of Rhymefest’s guest appearance at the Royce Da 5’9″ show at the Knitting Factory last month that was put on by my dudes at Same Plate/Hidden City Entertainment. Shout out to Royce (I know you check this shit haha), Torae, J the S, Don Cerino, J Master, etc. Wish I could’ve done more to support and been there to experience good hip hop. Next time! And while we’re talking about such artists… be sure to check out Don Cerino’s latest mixtape presented by HipHopDX, the upcoming J the S project (When In Rome…), CP’s first official release and last but not least (well maybe haha) cop Torae’s debut album, Daily Conversation. That shit is hot fiyah © Dylan.
