Juicy J / A$AP Ferg @ Iriving Plaza, 5/14/2013
Memphis hip hop favorite and Thee 6 Mafia member Juicy J played his second show in two days at Irving Plaza on Tuesday (5/14), part of the "Stay Trippy" tour with A$AP Ferg. Pictures from the show are in this post.
As mentioned, Juicy J performed a show the day prior, an RSVP-only affair as part of a FADER issue launch party that saw him perform three songs before calling it a night (pictures). No word as to how many trippy sticks, xanny bars or purple drank was consumed during his tenure in the city.
Juicy J is part of this year's Rock the Bells tour, though no word on whether he'll be part of the rotating line-up when it hits NYC.
In other news, A$AP Ferg released a video for the "Work" remix featuring A$AP Rocky, French Montana, Trinidad James & Schoolboy Q. Check that out, along with more pics from Irving Plaza, below.

Juicy J at 'Fader' launch party
Academy Award winner Juicy J (it still cracks me up to say that) made an appearance last night at 61 Gansevoort (5/13), a private party celebrating the launch of the latest issue of FADER. The event, which started around 8 PM featured the Three 6 Mafia member taking to the stage around 10 PM for his verse on "Show Out", followed by "A Zip and A Double Cup" and "Bandz A Make Her Dance" before thanking the crowd and leaving.
I know what you're thinking, 10 minutes (tops) of performance could not be any less exciting, especially considering the cramped quarters and the wait involved. But the experience of seeing the Juice-man (sans double-cup and trippy stick, alas) was less about the performance, and more about the crowd excitement; he could have read the ingredients off of a cereal box and the crowd would go nuts.
Juicy J teams with A$AP Ferg to play a sold-out Irving Plaza tonight. More pictures from the FADER party are below.

Hot 97 Summer Jam is returning to MetLife Stadium on June 2, and as usual, there will be a show in the parking lot (Festival Village) with smaller rappers. The lineup for the main show hasn't been announced yet (though hopefully it will have a headliner who doesn't cancel day of the show) but the Festival Village lineup has been announced, and it includes Action Bronson, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg, Vinny Cha$e, Smoke DZA, Bodega Bamz, Troy Ave, Kid Ink, and Radamiz. The only way into that show is with a Summer Jam ticket, and those go on sale Friday (4/12) at 10 AM.
Action Bronson (who plays Coachella this weekend) and Joey Bada$$ also play the XXL Freshmen show at Best Buy Theater on May 21 with Schoolboy Q, Trinidad Jame$, Ab-Soul, Logic, Kirko Bangz, Travi$ Scott, Dizzy Wright, and Angel Haze. Tickets for that show are still available.
Joey Bada$$ is currently on tour with Flatbush Zombies and The Underachievers. That tour hits NYC on April 18 at Highline Ballroom and April 20 at Gramercy Theater, and both are sold out. He also plays the Roots Picnic in Philly the day before Summer Jam with Grimes, Solange, Araabmuzik, Hit-Boy, How to Dress Well, and more. Tickets for that are still available.
All Joey Bada$$ and Action Bronson dates are listed, along with some videos, below...

Three 6 Mafia rapper Juicy J is still kicking, and plans to release his third solo album, Stay Trippy, at some point this year. The album is set to feature last year's party hit, "Bandz A Make Her Dance," his recent chilled out single that he recorded with The Weeknd and Weeknd producer Illangelo, "One of Those Nights," and his other single from January, "Show Out," a collaboration with Big Sean, Young Jeezy, and producer Mike Will Made It, which was just given video treatment. You can watch that new video and stream the other two tracks below.
In support of the album, Juicy J will be heading out on a tour of the US and Canada from late April to early June, and he's taking A$AP Ferg out with him as support. The tour hits NYC on May 14 at Irving Plaza. Tickets for that show go on sale today (3/8) at 10 AM. The release date for Stay Trippy is still TBA but hopefully it will drop before he hits the road.
All tour dates are listed, along with the new video and those song streams, below...

NYC rapper A$AP Rocky played his first hometown show since the release of Long.Live.A$AP at Public Assembly last Wednesday (2/20), a far more intimate show than the ones he'll be playing soon when he leaves for his tour with Rihanna. Rocky brought his usual craziness with a packed stage of A$AP Mob members and a packed crowd of fans rapping along. The show was opened by fellow Mob member A$AP Ferg, and other A$APs made appearances throughout the night too.
Bodega Bamz and 4th Pyramid were on the bill too, and as mentioned, you can catch Bodega Bamz and A$AP Twelvy in NYC again when they play Santos (3/6). Tickets for that show are still available. More pictures and a video from the Public Assembly show, below...

A$AP Rocky at FFF Fest 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
A$AP Rocky is teaming up with fellow A$AP Mob member, A$AP Ferg, in addition to Bodega Bamz, 4th Pyramid, and DJ Getlive! for a Scion A/V-presented NYC show on February 20 at Public Assembly. The only way to get in is to enter Scion's contest via Twitter or Instagram. Instructions on how to do so are below and more info is HERE.
Though entering the contest obviously won't guarantee admission and Rocky plays NYC a lot, the show is pretty exciting in that it's an intimate one for him before heading out on tour with Rihanna, and it's his first NYC show since the release of his new album, Long. Live. A$AP. As someone who's been a pretty big naysayer of A$AP Rocky's previous work (sorry, "Purple Swag"), the new album finally won me over as a fan. He raps more confidently than in the past, the songs are catchier, and production from Hit-Boy, 40, T-Minus, Clams Casino, Danger Mouse... and Skrillex (because, why not?) doesn't hurt. Neither do guests verses from everyone. If you haven't heard it yet, you can stream the album below.
Another A$AP Mob member, A$AP Twelvy is also teaming up with Bodega Bamz for their own show on March 6 at Santos Party House. Tickets for that one are on sale now.
An updated list of dates , that album stream, and contest details for the Scion A/V show below...

"LAST NIGHT WAS AMAZING. I LOVE NEW YORKKKKKKKK." - Action Bronson
Action Bronson bowling
Action Bronson squeezed in one last NYC show before the end of 2012 at Brooklyn Bowl last Wednesday (12/26) with A$AP Ferg and Meyhem Lauren. Like at other Action Bronson shows, he had a huge bag of weed that he graciously threw into the audience, and being that this one was at Brooklyn Bowl, Action Bronson headed over to the venue's bowling lanes and attempted to bowl during his set (as you can see above). Some other notes from the show (via The House List) include that he threw a "Jamaican dance battle for an ounce of weed" and brought out Styles P to cover RIck Ross' "B.M.F" (they do call Bronson the white Rick Ross). When he first walked out, he was decked out in some weird gross fur thing that vaguely resembled his outfit on the Rare Chandeliers album art, which you can see below.
