Dom Kennedy revisits his Get Home Safely LP with the official visual for ‘If It Don’t Make Money’ featuring Skeme.
In what now seems like perfectly timed planning, John Legend put on a memorable concert on Wednesday night at the Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles.
Backed by the LA Philharmonic orchestra, the singer/songwriter/producer paid homage to the legendary Marvin Gaye performing his iconic, civil rights based album What’s Going On, in it’s entirety!
Wearing a white suit and “Don’t Shoot” t-shirt, in honor of Michael Brown and the situation in Ferguson, MO, the R&B crooner delivered a riveting performance of the American classic.
“‘What’s Going On’ was an artistic masterpiece,” Legend told Yahoo!. “It was beautifully performed and arranged by Marvin and his collaborators. It had a strong sense of cohesion and clarity in its vision. And it was such a bold choice for an artist known primarily for his sweet love songs to make such provocative album with such a strong political message. But what made it so great was that it didn’t come off too preachy. He was able to make this “message” record that was still sensual and beautiful. It was still love music.”
In collaboration with Livenation and Yahoo! Music, fans around the world were able to stream the concert live last night. If you missed it, you can catch the full show now below!

The FADER and vitaminwater have partnered once again to present #uncapped, a series of concerts dedicated to supporting emerging musical talent and “hydrating the hustle” of today’s breakthrough artists.
The concert series kicked off last night in New York City with live performances by Jeremih and Run The Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P).
Dressed in all-black with a gold chain and dark wayfarers, Jeremih opened his set with a live rendition of “Bo Peep” supported by a four-piece band. Not too long into the set, the special guests started rolling out. First was Estelle, who joined Jeremih for their duet “Be In Love,” before performing her mega-hit “American Boy,” with Jeremih providing harmonies.
Harlem’s Vado showed up to rap on him and Jeremih’s recent collaboration, “Bae,” but it was NYC hip-hop staple Fabolous, who stole the show joining Jeremih for a couple tracks, including their hit “Thim Slick.” The R&B crooner wrapped things up with two electric performances: a slightly downtempo take on his breakthrough hit, “Birthday Sex,” and his newest smash, the YG-featured “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”

Alright, Kimberly – do the damn thing!
In case you were preoccupied last night (or just don’t have cable), the premiere of K.Michelle’s “Rebellious Soul Musical” aired on VH1. The R&B songstress shared her emotional story in the Idris Elba-directed hip-hopera set to re-written versions of the songs from her debut album Rebellious Soul.
Divided into three acts, the dark theatrical presentation captured the lust, love, heartache, and redemption of a woman struggling to break the cycle of bad romance, with a dramatic ending you wouldn’t expect.
