Jimmy Fallon just continues to get the best music acts to perform, this time featuring Ice Cube doing his classicIt was a Good Day” while, of course, backed by the Legendary Roots Crew:

And here’s the original video for the hell of it/because this song still never gets old:

Chance the Rapper - Acid Rap (Album Cover)

So the above album free mixtape is exactly why I get so excited about where hip-hop is going right now; add 20-year-old Chicago-MC Chance the Rapper to the constantly-growing list of hip-hop artists under 25 that have begun to consistently put out great, original stuff on a consistent basis (see: Kdot, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, etc.), and the result is an influx of great talent that makes the future of hip-hop that much more exciting.

That being said, there’s no reason Chance can’t blow up just like the rest of those previously mentioned; fine, this is a little different, but there’s no denying that it’s just outrageously awesome…and bumps. (Plus when someone says “Lean all on the square/That’s a fuckin’ rhombus” you listen):

“Smoke Again” (feat. Ab-Soul)

And that’s just one song on the tape…

Here’s another one for good measure:

“So Good (Good Ass Intro)”

And, finally, one that dropped a few months ago but is still hot:

“Juice”

And if you haven’t yet then download his new tape “Acid Rap” by clicking right here, and do it this very second – you will thank me later.

In a segment that I don’t believe aired on national TV, here is Method Man and Black Thought performing the Wu-Tang Clan’s classic “Protect Ya Neck” backed by the Legendary Roots Crew in an amazingly candid (and dope) performance (please note Meth stepping up and telling Black Thought “I got this” right before spitting ODB’s verse…):

Two Saturday’s ago I was lucky enough to attend the most amazing concert I’ve ever been to: first row, front and center, one of maybe 150 people in attendance at the Studio at Webster Hall for Daddy Fat Saxxx himself: Big Boi.

I was mad close:

Me mad close to Big Boi...

To commemorate my attendance Last.FM streamed the concert live and has begun to release that footage of the concert over the past couple of days. These videos (complete with the most annoying advertisement ever before each one…) are below not just for you to enjoy the hotness that is Big Boi live (with this iced out gold grill teeth by Niv’s Bling), then at least to observe the hotness that is myself and Jimbo gettin down on the concert floor, front and center, for the cameras:

“Do Dirty” x “ATLien” x “Skew-it-On-the-Bar-B” x “Rosa Parks”

“CPU” x “Apple of My Eye”

“Ghettomusik” x “Bombs over Baghdad”

“Mama Told Me”
