Drake Live at Love: Ransom & November 18th (VIDEO)

May 17, 2009

Seriously this kid had em like he was Michael Jackson up in the dance last night. Drizzy had women and men screaming, singing every word, and straight up and down fainting in the place. Lil bit more footage to come and I’m sure you will see tons more as every man, woman, and child had a camera phone.

Video: Hot 97 Summer Jam 2009 Lineup Announcement

April 28, 2009

The line up and the tickets for Hot 97’s Summer Jam 2009 went on sale last week, but here is footage of Angie Martinez announcing the line up. The line up isn’t all that great in my opinion but as always, I hit this event up yearly because of the surprise guests each act brings out. So imagine this line up x two. The line up as of now is below:

Mary J Blige
The Dream
Young Jeezy
Jim Jones
Juelz Santana
Elephant Man
Pleasure P
Hosted by Tracy Morgan

You can purchase tickets here for the show, which goes down Sunday, June 7th at Giants stadium. I know everybody is expecting Jim Jones and Juelz to bring out Cam’ron as their surprise guest for a Dip Set truce/reunion. I am going to go out on a limb and make sure to be there to witness that.

2009 Rock the Bells Line-Up Announced!

April 8, 2009


It’s almost that time of the year again folks. Just announced was the line-up for the 2009 Rock The Bells tour with more performers to be announced later as well as official dates and locations. Not too sure if we will be hitting the stop in NY or here in DC, but best believe we will be there. If you missed it last year, you pretty much lost  so you do not want to lose again. This is probably THAT Hip Hop show that you have to attend yearly.

Props to Nah for the heads up.

Want a Free Haircut from Meth & Red?

March 16, 2009


Well not cut by them personally because they would probably fuck up your cut even when not they’re not high. However, Method Man & Redman are both  holding an Easter celebration event  providing free haircuts for the kids under 12 years-old at the Shaolin’s Against Da’ Grain barbershop in Staten Island, NY  from 10am to 6pm  on Saturday, April 11. Clifford and Reggie not only will be hosting this event, but will be speaking to the kids as well *blank stare*  How to proberly roll a blunt maybe??  XXLMag.com reports:

“We have wonderfully loyal customers and felt this was just another way of rewarding them during these unusually hard economic times,” Tariq, a barber at the shop said in a statement.  “A single mother of three boys spends a weekly average of $33.00 on their hair cuts making it difficult to keep her kids hair freshly trimmed. With Easter Sunday the following day, we felt it was the perfect time to team up with our celebrity friends and create a unique solution based on old traditional values while helping our community.”

Definitely for a good cause. For information on this event  call 718.981.3597. Speaking of cuts, I think it’s about that time for me to get a cut myself. I’ve been going on 3 weeks now without a cut or shape up.
