Femi Kuti, son of the legendary creator of Afrobeat; Fela Kuti, has stopped through my town a few times during our festival seasons.  Since I am a huge fan of him and his father I was honored to be able to be that  close and shoot.  Take a gander below.

This song by Big Sean keeps my head nodding a bit.

Miguel brings his Adorn song across the pond to London for his British debut. Damn this song sure has legs doesn’t it?

What is y’all feelings on her new album?

Al Green knew how to get in a zone and perform live. In this 1978 clip, Al gets out while singing Belle.

Your favorite rapper wishes he could get anyone to listen to 11 songs let alone the same song 11 times in a row!!! I guess that is what N!ggas in Paris can do.

  Vital Films linked up with Talib Kweli and Mos Def at Belly Up Aspen on 12-26-2011 for the Black Start Extravaganza! Check out this B.T.S video with Talib talking about the show and what to expect for the new year.

I don’t think I have ever seen these two perform this live onstage. Well ain’t this just classic?

We can’t believe that it after all these years 50 Cent and Lil Kim finally performed Magic Stick together. Seems like eons ago when they had that little tit for tat. But hey let bygones be bygones. The two performed this little diddy in Australia.

And the crowd goes wild! SMH…

I have to admit…I wasn’t sure how this was gonna go.  As much as we enjoy a regular dose of Rih-Rih here at UML, we’ve been honest with ourselves when we say that live performance isn’t one of her strong points. Hell, I might venture to say that singing isn’t one of her strong points. […]

Just a few good ones for your morning…

Nelly rides his new single and his broken heart straight to late night TV….

This is one of the best performances I’ve seen from the Brothers Jackson!! Not only are these cats razor-sharp with their moves, but Jermaine and Tito for once gets the chance to display their skills. Classic!
