Quite possibly the best video you’ll see on the internet today. Bronson recruits his homies Riff Raff, Body, some pitbulls, and a BBW as he bombs around Queens for his newest track Strictly 4 My Jeeps. Cop it on iTunes.
The Billboard Music Awards went down last night and Nicki Minaj stole the spotlight. During her performance of “High School,” Nicki’s dance team brough out a chair for Lil Wayne and the rest was history. #Twerk
Pretty cool video here of K dot serving as principal for a day at Mount Pleasant High School in Providence, RI. Kendrick has always been known for being not only one of the best rappers in the game lyrically but also one of the brightest dudes in the game. He stressed to the kids the importance of their education and spread lots of positive messages. This is not your typical activity for a rapper currently on a world tour. For a full and more detailed article on this story, head over to HipHopDX.
The anti-buzzkill anthem of the moment gets its increbily dope accompanying music video. Kendrick can seemingly do no wrong at this point in the game and is riding that into his world tour which stops off in Essex Junction, VT at the Champlain Valley Fairgrounds on June 1st. Check out the events page for info on that and keep it locked here and we may just hook you up with tickets.
Gio Dee (formerly known as Bigg Dee) dropped this song and video recently as a tribute to the horrific attacks on April 15th at the Boston Marathon. Gio Dee certainly tugs at the heart strings in this video with images of the memorials in downtown Boston near Copley and on Boylston Street. Salute to Gio Dee and everyone involved in this track and video.

Always staying busy is the one and only Jetpack Jones this time with a brand new music video he dropped yesterday for his track I’m Good, the first single off of his Afterburners 2 mixtape. Jones has been gaining a lot of momentum with his career and is getting recognized by more and more people and bigger and bigger names in the industry. We’ve been all about this dude since he came to Vermont last summer for our Planet in the Park event and it’s great to see his on the come up! Salute to the whole Jetpack Movement.
Mac Miller stopped by Funk Flex’s studios to drop a freestyle as he has now officially completed his sophomore album Watching Movies With The Sound Off and looks to begin the promotion trail. Mac is truly an underrated freestyler. He goes in here with Flex but I will never forget watching this freestyle on the Come Up Show w/ Cosmic Kev for the first time. Still one of my favorite sessions.
[Editor's Note: This review was supposed to go up last week at the latest but with all the happenings in my home of Boston last week I was a tad preoccupied. Sue me.]
Ace Hood and Meek Mill kicked off their Dreams Come True Tour in Boston, MA on April 4th and the House of Blues was certainly turned up for the occasion. After an opening act from Lil Snupe to get the crowd hyped, Ace Hood took the stage and began firing off some of his hits. Ace got the crowd moving with his old school collab hits like Out Here Grindin, his mixtape hits like Goin Down off Starvation 2, and hits from his older albums like Go n Get It. He also tore the house down when he dropped his newest single, Bugatti featuring Future and that was possibly the loudest the crowd got.
Meek hit the stage to an incredible ovation with his DJ and a couple sets of keys behind him for some live action beats. Meek got the crowd hyped with his usual “turn up” tracks like Young n Gettin It, Believe It, Face Down Ass Up, and his intro track off Dreams & Nightmares which is one of the hottest intros to an album ever. However, Meek wasn’t afraid to turn down a little, if you will, and perform some of his more poignant tracks like Used To Be A Used To and Traumatized which speak volumes of his struggle before his success. Meek took some time during the show to just have the DJ break it down and play some hits like Started From The Bottom, Bitches Love Me, I Don’t Like, Meek also brought Ace Hood back out on stage showing lots of love for the MC and called him at one point one of the most underrated rappers in the game. After he welcomed Ace back on stage he had him perform his new single Bugatti for the second time and the crowd was possibly the most turnt up it was all night! Check out the footage below!
Finally, Meek closed out the show by thanking the fans, his team, Ace Hood, and everyone that made the night possible. He spoke of his struggle as a youth and what it took to get from the bottom to where he is right now. He thanked God and expressed his faith to the crowd and led it all perfectly into his hit single Amen with his man behind him playing the beat live action on the keyboards after a long intro during Meek’s speech. It was truly an epic show and it is safe to say the Dreams Come True Tour was officially kicked off with authority!
