Fresh off of setting the hip hop community on fire with his battle with RZA, DJ Premier and Fat Joe hop on IG Live to discuss a plethora of topics ranging from stories about the late Big L to working with Drake.
Snoop Dogg assists D Smoke in getting revenge for the “Gaspar Yanga” video from Smoke’s stellar Black Habits album that dropped back in February.
If you somehow managed to miss the incredible “battle” between DJ Premier and RZA, fear not.
The entire video was uploaded for you to check out.
The reason why it’s difficult to call it a battle is because this was more like watching two legends trade war stories and be in awe of each other’s ability. There wasn’t really a pre-planned strategy and fans were treated to a fantastic session of classics and b-sides.
Set list is below.
Locksmith, Xzibit and Ras Kass connect for “With God” and immediately make you wonder if this trio should go ahead and give us an album if they aren’t already. Three of the finest lyricists in California pounce all over the Decap and Chris Keys production as Mr. X to the Z reminds us of his lyrical prowess, Ras Kass continues to be one of the most underrated emcees of all time and Locksmith showcases his ability.
Royce 5’9″ and Grafh have delivered a few bangers over the past couple of months and the duo link up for the video to “Agenda” from Grafh’s “Oracle 3.”
Although his tour dates for The Allegory are sidelined indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic, Royce 5’9″ gives us the closest thing to a live performance when he performs “Overcomer” for Vevo’s Ctrl Live Sessions.
With the release of their collaborative album Lulu, Conway and Alchemist waste little time dropping a video for “Calvin” directed by Jason Goldwatch.
“I feel like the culture needed it, the streets needed it, people wanted to hear it,” Conway said about the project. “I actually have three projects coming out. After we finish tearing the streets up with the Lulu, I’m planning to release From King to a God sometime in April. Then I have God Don’t Make Mistakes being released on Shady Records sometime in the near future as well. I’ve got a lot of things on my plate that I’m just waiting to just dish out.”
Evidence is back at it and releases a video for “Unlearning” to keep the fans fed with dope music.
Joyner Lucas channels Will Smith’s acting career in the video for “Will” from his album ADHD dropping on March 27. It’s impressive to watch as Lucas glides through all of Smith’s most memorable roles from “Fresh Prince of Bel Air” to “Shark Tale.”
Boldy James and Alchemist release a new set of visuals for “Grey October,” featuring Evidence. This cut is from the duo’s The Price of Tea in China that dropped in February.
