VIDEO: The Roots Joined Onstage by Freeway, YG and The Lox!

Wrapping up my coverage from The 8th Annual Roots Picnic, I had to share this video… Erykah Badu and the Roots Crew performed Love of My Life as an ode to hip-hop and along with the performance, threw in interpolations of some classic hip-hop jams!! Also in the clip below, both acts are joined onstage by some of hip-hop’s well known emcees including Freeway (performing Rock The Mic), YG (My Hitta), and The Lox (All About the Benjamins)...

VIDEO: Erykah Badu and The Roots Perform Together at The Roots Picnic

There were several moments from The Roots Picnic to get lost inside the groove – this was one of them! The festival’s headliners joined forces to some of some of their biggest classic hits throughout the night and one of their finest moments was delivered with this mashup of The Roots’ Mellow Man and Erykah’s career debut single On & On. Flawless execution. The air was cool, the vibe was right and the ‘element’ was definitely in the...

VIDEO: The Weeknd Hits The Stage at the Roots Picnic

More video from my time at the Roots Picnic last weekend. It’s easy to forget how you discovered/fell in love with an artist, which is why I really love festivals and concerts. Seeing Abel perform some of these jams brought back my love for The Weeknd. I discovered him back in 2011, a time when his mixtape game was super heavy; House of Balloons was my primary go-to mixtape for at least 6 months. In the clip that follows, The Weeknd performs High For This and Wicked...

A$AP Rocky Performs New Music at The Roots Picnic

Lately I’ve been on a festival kick, checking out various major music festivals and enjoying each experience.

The one-day festival drew out thousands to Festival Pier to check out the Legendary Roots Crew and several other artists that assembled to celebrate their artistry and the unity of music. I won’t lie, I’m not built for that type of...

Maroon 5, Common, John Legend, JHud and Lady Gaga perform at the Oscars!

  The Oscars were pretty much a snooze-fest last night, save for a few performances that really set the night into motion. I couldn’t tell you what movies won the most awards (although everytime I flipped the channel back Grand Budapest Hotel was cleaning up!), but the race for song of the year had some interesting entries! These are my favorite moments from last night, what was yours? Leave a comment and share your thoughts!   The first musical performance...

ALBUM REVIEW: Ne-yo – Non-Fiction

Artist: Ne-yo Album: Non-Fiction Release Date: 1.27.15 Ne-yo’s sixth studio album isn’t something to be taken lightly. The R&B star returns with one of his most versatile and impressive projects to date. I gotta admit, I’ve slept on this for a few weeks but I finally took the time to really listen and the amount of tracks I can keep in rotation surprised me. I mean, let’s be honest: Ne-yo lost a lot of us along the way in the name of...
