I’ve never had more fun doing a show. Maybe it’s the fact that it’s mine and it affords me the opportunity to do whatever I want or maybe it’s just about where I’m at in my life. However I break it down, doing the first season of this show was so much fun. While we get ready for its TV debut later this year, here’s a highlight reel of the good times we’ve had so far on The Q Side.
3 of hip hop’s best get real about this election and the success of their new projects.
G.O.O.D. Music is definitely earning it’s title this week. Most hip hop fans have gotten their ears on the leak of Cruel Summer and this album Big Sean put out for free (so we’ll call it a mixtape). Detroit is packed with incredible collaborations with Common, Jhene Aiko and J Cole (among others). While a lot of the mixtape is more of the fun we’ve come to expect from Big Sean, songs like Once Bitten, Twice Shy (produced by Hit Boy) have real depth.

G.O.O.D. music is not lacking in the swag department.
Who do you think dropped the best verse though? Kanye, Big Sean, Pusha T or 2 Chainz?
I know some women’s rights groups are probably pitching a fit about this but I’m not mad at this at all.
If beautiful women dancing in bikinis offends you- don’t press play on this video.
This beat’s got that good time bounce. Some dope effects in this video too. Big Sean’s upcoming debut album Finally Famous comes out officially June 28th.
It was Friday night, January 7th and there was no lack of options for things to do in Hollywood. Big Sean had concert at the El Rey Theatre that ended up including performances by Chris Brown, Wiz Khalifa, Tyga and even Warren G came out. It was a scene as the footage Miss Info posted on her site will attest to.
On the other side of town was a much different kind of show. It was at Hotel Cafe, a low key venue that’s about an eighth of the size of the El Rey and it’s entrance is in a back alley. The artist performing there didn’t bring up any household names to perform with him but he didn’t need to. His name is Rocco Deluca. He’d been signed to Kiefer Sutherlands label Ironworks and made appearances on shows like Jay Leno but on this particular night there was something decidedly UN-Hollywood going on. The only light on stage came from a small lamp clipped to his mic stand that he seemed to be singing to. The words were the supporting cast to what was coming out of his blues guitar though. The passion he played it with was definitely another level then anybody in the room was used to hearing.
Whether the song called out Amen or not it would’ve felt spiritual the way he was performing. People in the crowd were making involuntary sounds that resembled catching the holy ghost. Thanks to the videography of Ted Newsome you can see another part of his inspiring performance here.
The BET Hip Hop Awards gets a lot of criticism but no one can argue how dope the cyphers are. Here’s the best one from this year featuring Kanye West, Pusha T, Big Sean, CyHi Da Prynce and Common. Catch up on the rest of the cyphers over at 2dopeboyz.com.
