When these mega artist grace the stage you are definitely in for a show of a lifetime. The Roots is HipHop grown up, they bring the Jazz and the Poetry into one arena with style and class. Bilal is pretty much our underground version of Prince, his voice makes any song legendary and he can perform any genre of music. This matchup was bound to happen when the earth and stars are aligned with one another. That being said check out the video below if you are a REal fan of HipHop/Soul music.

Hands down MF Doom aka Madvillain is definitely one of my top 5 Emcees of all time. It's a shame it took a tragedy to create the persona we see today but as a fan that's one hell of a comeback. From being an okay rapper to one of the dopest underground Emcees is one hell of a "Rags to Riches" story. I wished he would have created more videos for his dope azz classics. But thanks to his massive following we have at least a few visuals to gaze upon.

I just had to show some love to two of the most iconic HipHop groups that basically ruled the 90's. Once upon a time, HipHop artists were allowed to be Alpha men on mainstream media those days are gone. ONYX was a force to be reckoned with along with Wu-Tang Clan.
These days you notice there are hardly any more HipHop groups especially ones that display masculinity on camera in the mainstream. I'm not against people being whomever they want to be I'm just saying black men being soft or feminine is being forced into our veins like crack. I'm sure the men who can relate will understand, in the meantime, let us take a look back when HipHop was great!!

Watching this three together on one track takes me back to the Golden Era of HipHop. Only the REal HipHop Heads will be able to appreciate this collaboration by 9th Wonder, Buckshot, and Rapsody on this "Shorty Left" joint off "The Solution" LP.

I wish I could have been at New York Tri-State concert with 9th Wonder & Buckshot, Murs and my guy Sean Price.

Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus, and The Roots perform an a Capella version of "We Can't Stop." I know I'm late with this post so it's a good thing time is not an ending factor for our site. HipHop is probably the most influential genre of music ever created by man. Artist from every genre of music borrows and are influence by HipHop in one way or another this is just proof how versatile HipHop truly is.
