Jay Z - B-Sides Concert (Full Show)

Jay Z

After being announced several weeks ago, Jay Z took to the stage of Terminal 5 in NYC last night to perform a selection from his vast catalogue. Streamed exclusively via TIDAL, this "B-Sides" show was a chance for Hov to go back and revisit some of his album cuts and various verses that he seldom plays out these days. There are a few obvious hits in there too but it's great to see if you're more than just a casual fan.

There were a few surprise guests too but you can see for yourself. I doubt this will remain on Youtube for long so watch it while you can.

Dave East - The Offering (Video)

Dave East

Taken from his EP/mixtape "Black Rose", Dave East drops the video for the opening track to the release with "The Offering". The start is reminiscent of Nas' track "Book Of Rhymes" and is released through Mass Appeal, so he's definitely in good company with Nas, Fashawn, Boldy James and Run The Jewels.

"Black Rose" is available on iTunes now.

J.PERIOD & Black Thought - The Live Mixtape (JB Edition)

Thought and J
Black Thought and J.PERIOD

The Roots' leading man Black Thought continues his "Live Mixtape" series with close collaborator J.PERIOD on their most recent "JB Edition". In remembrance of the late James Brown, Thought goes in for 35 minutes with J.PERIOD cutting up remixes, JB instrumentals and Brown vocals all live.

This is just stupid. Love this. Stream the performance below and visit J's site for the download.
