In the flim, The Roots, Skillz, and Mos Def cover cuts from Gang Starr and Nice-N-Smooth at the Highline Ballroom in NYC. No “Dwyck” gentleman? Humbug! After the cut, they try their hand at Run-D.M.C.’s “Here We Go”.

“First nigga in Atlanta with an S2.”

I’ll pretend I know what kind of car that is. Ha! Anyway, Jeezy shot another quick street vid to one of the tunes off the excellent Trappin’ Ain’t Dead mixtape. It’s all in the name of Thug Motivation 103 which is on the way. Can’t wait.

Lauryn Hill Cancels All European Tour Dates

While we wait for Michael Jackson to back out of his summer tour, L Boogie continues to confuse and disappoint:

Festival organizers say hip-hop and R&B singer Lauryn Hill has canceled all tour dates in Europe this summer for health reasons.

Stockholm Jazz Festival spokeswoman Liisa Tolonen says the artist’s agent informed the festival late Tuesday that all performances in Europe by the former Fugees singer have been canceled. This includes shows in Sweden, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, France, and Austria.

Tolonen said Wednesday the agent cited health reasons for the cancellation but declined to give more details.

The tour would have marked a comeback to stage by Hill who has kept a low public profile in recent years. She was the planned headline act for The Stockholm Jazz Festival, one of Sweden’s biggest music events.

Let’s hope she has no real illness, we already know she’s sick in the head.
