Brooklyn's own Talib Kweli sits down with Tavis Smiley on his PBS television show to discuss his latest LP "Prisoner of Conscious," his artistic approach (and how it has changed), and more. In the above clip, Talib relates his firm stance on artistic integrity; holding that succumbing to every whim of his fans would actually betray them... in that doing so would mean he was not being a true artist. View the entire interview after the jump.
Frenchie is having a good day with the debut of his album, "Excuse My French". The Press Corp and fans were out in full force at Best Buy in NYC to meet and greet hip-hop's latest superstar. Peep the performance after the jump.
Take a look as Dwyane Wade surprises one of his biggest fans (Archbishop Carroll High senior Nicole Muxo) by attending her prom! Like his YouTube channel says, 'Dwyane helps make a fan's dream come true by showing up unexpectedly at her prom in Coral Gables, FL.'
Take a nap... Then champagne and campaign! Now, that's hilarious (and true). Amen, Mr. Rose. Pay attention as Jalen Rose breaks down the 'after-work' life of those in NBA circles - like J. R. Smith (and himself) - in a way regular working folk can understand.
'Jalen Rose explains to David Jacoby that in an NBA player's lifestyle going to the nightclub late at night is no different than a 9 to 5 worker going to happy hour.'
The legendary DJ Tony Touch is gearing up to release his long-awaited project "The Piecemaker 3 (Return Of The 50 Mcs)" due July 9th. People still talk about Tony Toca's original 50 Mc's mixtapes to this day & I've often overheard artists asking why Tony doesn't start it back up again when people focused intently on who had the hottest bars. It's great to see the Brooklyn Puerto Rock get back on it again. During the 50 days leading up to the release of the new project, Tony Touch will be dropping webisodes of classic & never seen before footage up until the July 9th which is the release date of his new project. In this first episode Tony Touch captures video of Busta Rhymes, Ol Dirty Bastard, CL Smooth, Rampage, & 8 Off The Assassin back in 1994 at the Gavin Convention in New Orleans. Classic
Well Kanye West making a buzz is nothing new he is a Creative Marketing Genius like him or love him you must admit it. This past Friday as most of you know he premiered his video New Slaves by projecting it onto 66 buildings across the globe. In cities like Chicago, New York, Toronto, Berlin and many others. He then followed that by performing on Saturday Night Live the next day a performance I posted earlier. Well I really enjoyed this footage shot of the projection in Hollywood on the W Hotel. Shout out to Hip Hop Heisenberg(@99point1percent) for the great footage.
Here at HHAD we love good Hip Hop, Sports, Current Events, nice looking ladies but we also love a good laugh! Right now over on Youtube May 19th-25th comics will be posting hilarious videos and spoofs. Big name comics like Owen Wilson, Sarah Silverman and others. Well I had to post this video spoof by Reggie Watts. The song is called Reg Rolled but I am sure you will recognize the beat it is from Rick Astley's 80′s mega hit "Never Gonna Give You Up". Give Reggie props he mimicks the video down to the clothing and dance moves and peep the cameo from comic Jordan Peele from Key and Peele. I also posted the original Rick Astley video so sit back and enjoy.
You say what you want about Miami Heat All-Star Chris Bosh but this dude is hilarious with all the situations that seem to happen with him. Self-inflicted suspect photobombs or not one thing for sure is you can't deny the guy can play basketball. This ESPNmini-documentary with Lisa Salters exposes Chris Bosh for who he really is.....just a geeky, nerdy, yet highly intelligent former Georgia Tech student who had an interest in engineering & computer programming. To Chris Bosh's wife he's just a "goofball" who in more ways than one is just an entertainer at heart. Despite some of the negativity he's received it's kinda cool to see Chris Bosh won't allow anything to affect his sense of humor.
De La Soul with The Roots backing. Think this performance on 'Late Night' with Jimmy Fallon was major? Think... $#%! you KNOW it was dope! Watch and pat yourself on the back for being right. Video of De La doing "Jenifa Taught Me" above, then "A Roller Skating Jam Named Saturdays" after the jump.
Mm mm mm! I don't understand why y'all hate on the Lingerie Legends Football League. See? There is plenty to celebrate... and oh how these athletes celebrate! Check out this highlight from former Hooter's Beauty Ogom Chijindu (above).
A witty public service announcement 'directed' by DL Hughley, featured on 'The Endangered List' - his special on Comedy Central. Dennis Haysbert, Clay Aiken, Howie Mandel, and Jennifer Tilly star in this PSA to Save the Black Man. Have you seen 'The Endangered List'? It's funny... but it's true. Check out some clips from the special after the jump.
Legendary NBA coach Phil Jackson has coached 2 of the greatest NBA players to have ever played the game. For years he's dodged the primary question most sports fans & reporters have desperately wanted him to answer. Now that he's making the media rounds promoting his new book, Phil Jackson is finally speaking out. Phil Jackson compares Air Jordan to the Black Mamba in the above video of his interview with Jay Leno. Jay referenced Jackson's book, Eleven Rings: The Soul of Success (due out May 21, 2013; available for pre-order at Amazon) in guiding their talk in this direction. In it, and in the above clip, Coach Jackson declares that both Jordan and Bryant are world class competitors; matched up in several aspects, but there are key differences, according to one of the few men in the world who can really say so. Coach 'Zen Master' also talks about how he set up a meeting between the two and his near-return to the Los Angeles Lakers' bench. Kobe recently took to twitter & didn't exactly seem too pleased with his former coach's comparisons. I'd have to agree with Phil though....
