Summer Jam 2013 (via @evecastillo2012)
Summer Jam

Hot 97 Summer Jam went down at MetLife Stadium last night (6/2) with sets from Kendrick Lamar (joined by other Black Hippy members), A$AP Rocky (joined by Kendrick and 2 Chainz on "Fuckin' Problems," and also by Bone Thugs-N-Harmony), Miguel (joined by Mariah Carey), Wu-Tang Clan, Fabolous (joined by Lil Kim), 2 Chainz (joined by Nicki Minaj which is a big deal for anyone invested in the controversy surrounding her canceling her set at last year's Summer Jam), and more.

Unfortunately for those in attendance, the festival was cut short during headliner French Montana's set due to "flash flood and lightning warnings." You can learn more about that at Hot 97's site.

Some videos from the festival below...

Schoolboy Q at Best Buy Theater - 5/21/13 (via Kellen Dengler)
Schoolboy Q

Thanks to TDE's recent success, Q found himself as the most established performer at the Freshman show. With no one to accompany him on stage, he fared better in the larger crowd as a solo artist, breezing through tracks from Habits & Contradictions and throwback collaborations with A$AP Rocky. At one point, he asked Kendrick Lamar to join him but laughed at the audience members who fell for his joke. Fittingly, he won the crowd back with his charisma by asking them the title of his upcoming album. "Oxymoron!" they screamed back. And this was done four times over. [XXL]
The 2013 XXL Freshman Class, including Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, Joey Bada$$, Action Bronson, Angel Haze, and more, all came to NYC for a show at Best Buy Theater last night (5/21). You can check out a video of Schoolboy Q playing "My Hatin' Joint" at the show, below.

As mentioned in yesterday's What's Going On? post, Action Bronson made a video for his Harry Fraud-produced song, "Strictly 4 My Jeeps." If you missed it, you can watch that video below. Riff Raff stars in the video, and as discussed, he plays a Scion A/V show in Brooklyn at Coco 66 tonight (5/22) with Stalley and Smoke DZA. Entrance to that show had to be gained through Scion's contest which has since ended.

Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul are both members of the group Black Hippy (which also includes Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock), and that whole group is playing the traveling Rock the Bells Festival which hits the NYC-area on October 4-5 at the Meadowlands Racetrack in East Rutherford, NJ. Tickets for that festival are on sale now. The rest of the lineup includes Big K.R.I.T., Common, Danny Brown, Earl Sweatshirt, Tyler the Creator, Jhene Aiko, Juicy J, Rakim, Wu-Tang Clan, and many more.

Updated Rock the Bells lineup and videos below...

Rock the Bells 2013

Happy 10th anniversary to Rock the Bells, who have announced their initial, rotating 2013 lineup featuring hosts Peter Rosenberg & MURS 3:16, as well as names like Bone Thugs N Harmony, Danny Brown, Black Hippy (who just played NYC), Common, E40 & Too Short, Earl Sweatshirt (ditto), Flatbush Zombies, Juicy J (who played a Fader show on Monday and Irving Plaza last night), Rakim, Wu-Tang Clan (who play Summer Jam soon), Tyler the Creator (who just announced an NYC show as part of Odd Future), Eazy E, Ol Dirty Bastard and more. Confused? Yes, I did just say Eazy E and Ol Dirty Bastard, both of which will be "virtual performances" as part of the travelling festival. AllHipHop reports:

Ol Dirty Bastard and Eazy-E's spirits will return to the stage at Rock The Bells this year, AllHipHop has learned.

The pair of Hip-Hop legends will have holograms performing this year at the 10-year anniversary of the rap festival.

Eazy-E will perform virtually with Bone Thugs-In-Harmony and ODB will rock with Wu Tang. Organizers said Eazy never blessed the Rock The Bells stage and ODB only did once.

Also, the "holograms" are approved by Eazy-E's wife Tomica Wright and Ol Dirty's mother, Cherry Jones.

Tupac's Coachella appearance inspired the new virtual performances at Rock The Bells, organizers admitted.

So far only four dates exist for Rock the Bells. They're all listed below. Two of them are on the East Coast and one is in the NYC area at Meadowlands Racetrack in Rutherford, NJ on October 4-5. Tickets go on presale Thursday (10/16) at noon, and regular sale on Saturday.

Initial lineup (at least 15 more artists TBA), dates and some video below.

Yeasayer in Austin earlier this month (more by Tim Griffin)
Yeasayer

We already posted lots of posts today. Here's some more, and some reminders too...

Yeasayer played Summerstage last night (9/12). We missed them but caught them in Austin where Dead Can Dance also recently played. How was the NY show?

As BV Chicago pointed out, Smashing Pumpkins frontman BIlly Corgan opened a tea shop outside of Chicago, and he played acoustic sets there today to celebrate.

Bat For Lashes is releasing her new album, The Haunted Man, on October 21. Back in July, she revealed the first album cut, "Laura," and today she's let loose a second taste of the album. Continuing a trend thus far of naming songs after women's names, this one's called "Marilyn." You can stream it below.

The final track on the new Lower Dens album, Nootropics, has become the inspiration for a new beer brewed by Stillwater Artisanal Brewing for their new Stillwater Sensory Series. The beer is called "Stillwater Artisanal, Sensory Series v.1 - Lower Dens" and will be out this November with a QR code on each bottle that leads to an exclusive video of Lower Dens performing the song when scanned.

The Walkmen, whose tour brings them to NYC for a show at Terminal 5 on October 18 with Dum Dum Girls (tickets) will play Conan tonight.

Rock the Bells

Turing hip-hop festival Rock the Bells announces:

Boost Mobile in association with Guerilla Union have announced the return of the ROCK THE BELLS 2012 FESTIVAL SERIES powered by BlackBerry. The world-class platform will feature an array of seminal and flourishing artists over an expanded two-day period in four major North American markets, including headliners Kid Cudi, J Cole, Wiz Khalifa, Atmosphere and more, with special guests Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

The only touring hip-hop festival will kick off in San Bernardino, CA on August 19 and 20 at the NOS Events Center. The festival will then make its way to Mountain View, CA on August 25 and 26 at the Shoreline Amphitheatre and will wrap on the east coast in Newark, NJ on September 1 and 2 at PNC Arts Center.

ROCK THE BELLS and non-profit organization Hip Hop and Hope for Haiti have joined forces to shine light on the disaster-stricken country and to provide continued relief efforts; that of which have progressively decelerated.

I'm pretty sure PNC Bank Arts Center isn't in Newark, and actually even farther from NYC (where the festival used to happen), but whatever.

In addition to what is listed above, Hit Squad is also playing. Full lineups TBA soon (possibly at the launch party happening in California tonight)

UPDATE: Full LINEUP ANNOUNCED.

The list of dates with on-sale dates is below...

Bone Thugs at Fader Fort SXSW 2010 (more by P. Nick Curran)
Bone Thugs

Bone Thugs-n-Harmony announced on their blog over the summer that they're planning a new album for 2012 and it will be the last album with all 5 members of the group. They reiterated those facts in a November video interview that you can watch below. Krayzie Bone has also stated that he will again be touring with the group, after announcing his departure this past April.

Though a full tour hasn't been announced yet, the group are starting to reveal some dates in January and February including an NYC show on February 7 at Gramercy Theatre. Tickets for that show go on sale on Wednesday (12/28) at 10 AM. All currently known dates are listed below.

Maybe Bone Thugs can get ASAP Rocky to guest on their new album. ASAP recently told DJ Booth that he "really wanna' work with Bone Thugs-n-Harmony, though. My brother was killed when I was 13, but he influenced the sh*t out of me. I grew up on Bone Thugs; my mom listens to those guys and blasts the music. I wanna' tell those guys that their music influenced me." ASAP also just announced a NYC show.

Bone Thugs dates and interview below...

Bone Thugs at Fader Fort (more by P Nick Curran)
Bone Thugs & Harmony

Layzie Bone told AllHipHop.com that it was simply a business decision for Bizzy Bone, who opted to remove himself from being involved with the tour, although he is prominently featured on Uni5: The World's Enemy [the crew's new LP due 4/27].

"That's true, he has other obligations and we had a difference of opinion on how much we should get for this tour... We looked at it like promo tour, he looked at it a little differently, which is cool, because his arrangement doesn't require him to be there. He's still a 1/5th member of Bone. - [AllHipHop]

And then there were four. Or is it three? Flesh-n-Bone was absent from his appearance at Fader Fort during SXSW (due to a missed flight), but from the sound of it, be may be absent for a little while longer too...
Rapper FLESH-N-BONE has pleaded not guilty to 12-year-old allegations he assaulted his mother with a gun following his arrest on Sunday (28Mar10).

The troubled star, real name Stanley Howse, was arrested during a Bone Thugs-N-Harmony concert at the House of Blues in Cleveland, Ohio after cops were tipped off about his plans to make a surprise appearance onstage with his old bandmates - the first time he'd returned to the city since 1998.

He was arrested after an attempt to sneak out of the building failed and he was placed behind bars at the Cuyahoga County Jail. -[Contactmusic]

Well, expect at least three members of Bone Thugs-n-Harmony at Irving Plaza on April 6th. Tickets are on sale.

The NYC show is part of a month-long tour. All dates & a few new videos are below...
