Watch The Throne Documentary

We get a behind the scenes look at the making of Kanye West and Jay Z‘s collaborative album, “Watch The Throne“. Directed, edited, and photographed by Robert Lopuski, the 10 minute short film gives a nice look at the collaborative work of the two artists. The more private footage, as well as the old footage inserted into the clip, make it a rather round look at the work of Kanye West and Jay-Z over the last 15 years.

You can read an interview with the director of the film over at Paradigm Magazine.


Nas & Lauryn Hill Live @ Summer Jam 2012

If we’re gonna talk about Summer Jam drama, let’s talk about the irony of Nas of all people filling in for a headliner that decided to step off at the last minute. It’s the circle of life.

So the above performance came about after Wayne and Nicki got wind of a comment Rosenberg made in the parking lot and decided to take their ball and go home.

Next thing you know, Flex starts talking his shit, then Rosenberg and Ciph went back in on their show this morning.

UPDATE: Lauryn chimes in with her 2 cents

Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg Bring Out 2 Pac at Coachella 2012

Coachella 2012 is in full effect and has already featured some incredible performances on its first weekend. You can watch some of them, including M83, ASAP Rocky, Childish Gambino and othershere.

One of the most impressive on stage performances though was for sure the show by Dr. Dre and Snoop Dogg. Of course these two are already worth seeing by themselves, but for Coachella 2012 they thought of something special. The two West Coast legends brought on stage a number of other great artists, including Kurupt, Warren G, Whiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar and 50 Cent.

Last but not least was the one and only 2 Pac, who was projected onto stage in the form of a hologram. What an amazing Day 3 of the festival.
