Video from this weekend’s Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival.
Saving the best for last tonight: Malik Yusef sat down with Beats by Dre in their headquarters for a fascinating interview/story about the first time Kanye West and Common appeared together on a record.
It was for Malik’s “Wouldn’t You Like To Ride” that was featured on the Coach Carter soundtrack (ahh, good high school memories) and the story behind it will make ‘Ye fans blush. Kanye was bold and self-confident in selling the beat to Malik and the final product is a feel-good Chicago jam still today (along with these visuals.)
Flat out, this is a quick, must-see interview above.
Who is Common playing? We have an idea after on set photos have leaked.
Starring Azealia Banks as the lead with Common and Jill Scott.
Common’s latest NBA commercial will give ya the chills.
