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…):

Really liking (and understanding, albeit from the complete opposite perspective…) this Rap Genius post on Rappers’ Obsession with Jewish Culture:

 *[Rick Ross] is the self-proclaimed “only fat nigga in the sauna with jews”

*Hov had a black Bar Mitzvah
And he’s also “That Martha Stewart that’s far from Jewish”

*Kanye isn’t worried about going to court over samples, because if he gets sued, his lawyers jews

*Nas defends the Jews and is disgusted by anti-semitism

*DOOM refers to himself as the black jew and Jay Electronica can also be known as Jay Elec-Chanukah

*The Black Eyed Peas use Hebrew expressions when they’re getting fucked up

*Shit, Shyne even decided to convert to Judaism

Some of my videos from the MSG-stop of the “Watch the Throne” tour on November 8, 2011, featuring two of the best in the game:

“The Throne” performs their “encore” of “Ni**as in Paris”…for the first of three times in a row. Place goes nuts…

 

 

Kanye does his verse from “Get Em High” followed by the intro to “Lucifer” and then Jay going in just over the piano. Just sick.
