jay-z-barneys-holiday-collaboration

We were waiting on Hov to make a statement to the press about his ill-timed deal with Barney New York for their holiday collection, as the clothing outlet has fought allegations of racist practices in its stores. Didn’t have to wait very long as Mr. Carter released a statement via his Life and Times outlet. But that wasn’t all. He contacted us with an exclusive freestyle broaching the topics at hand. Full lyrics after the jump.

we had high hopes for jermaine. his mixtape “the warm up” was a needed shot of vigor in a slumping independent scene, wanting for a sellable, sobering presence. his college kid pluckiness and tupac-nas derivative flows were respectful without mimicking. his collegiality was light-hearted, but not obnoxious. then, he got signed to a record deal, and it all unraveled.

This ain’t for the faint of heart or the light of skivvies. This is anti-AutoTune. This is the world’s most dangerous hip-hop show, by a stretch. Parental discretion is advised. The clickables after the jump…

all sales final. that’s that sh*t i don’t like.
 
in all seriousness though, i’m here to express my deep disappointment and utter shock at the incidents that have taken place these past few months. one of hip-hop’s esteemed live performance artists, chief keef, has repeatedly failed to live up to his top billing at shows across the country. if it were any other average musician, i’d be perhaps less dismayed by the overt delinquency and absenteeism. but frankly where it concerns chief keef, i’ve come to expect a helluva lot more.

File this in the “Why Wasn’t I There?” section.  Two of comedy’s biggest names shared the stage early Tuesday morning in an impromptu performance at New York City’s Comedy Cellar.  Throughout the week the two have performed separately at the Cellar, trying out new material; Rock because he’s preparing for an new standup special, and Chappelle because…well, who knows, just be thankful he’s still doing standup.  After performing solo for about 45 minutes, Dave Chappelle was joined by Chris Rock who took the stage to tell the audience, “Aw, you lucky motherf*ckers.” Read More


Andy Samberg made his return to Saturday Night Live this past weekend to perform in one of his signature digital shorts alongside The Lonely Island, guest host Adam Levine and musical guest Kendrick Lamar.  This is actually the first single from The Lonely Island’s forthcoming album and is currently available for download on iTunes.  By the way, awesome cameo from Danny McBride in this one.
