Kendrick recently taped his interview with Gilles Peterson‘s BBC Radio 6 show. During their discussion on UK Electro music, K-Dot raps off the dome to TNGHT’s “Higher Ground”.
“What about ‘em?… Nothing, shit to piss old white people off like you.”
During their visit in the UK, Stephen Smith of BBC Newsnight‘s sat down with Odd Future for a interview to discuss their aggressive lyrics and their merchandise. Hilarious!
“This is about to get real embarrassing”
You damn right. Across the pond, Katy Perry and her Yankee fitted hit the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge stage and performed her version of The Throne’s hit track. This shit cray.
Francis Ocean speaks to BBC News on Odd Future’s influence on his music, working with The Throne and Beyonce as well as what we can expect of his commercial debut coming in the spring.
“It succinctly defines me as an artist for where I am right now and that was the aim, just to make something that represents where you are at that time. It’s about the stories. If I write 14 stories that I love, then the next step is to get the environment of music around it to best envelop the story and all kinds of sonic goodness—sonic goodies.”
During their recent visit to BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge, Florence Welch and her band did their rendition of Drake’s album’s title track, “Take Care“. Eat your heart out Ms. Fenty.
Jay-Z made more radio rounds while in the UK and during his interview with BBC’s Natalie Jamieson, he speculates that in 2018, maybe he’d run for U.S. President.
“Give me a chance. Maybe in eight years, I’ll be the president. In order to judge someone, you have to judge what they inherit In order to get to that sort of success and that dream, you have to go through some peaks and valleys. He [Pres. Obama] inherited the worst economy, war, just a horrible time in American history. So if we think he can solve that, I mean, we don’t think he’s God, do we. He’s a human being. He’s going to need time to figure that out. But it may be a good thing. Maybe the Republicans will win one of those houses, so this way they’ll have to be responsible for whether a law gets passed, and they can’t put it on Obama. In order to get to that sort of success and that dream, you have to go through some peaks and valleys. It’s been two years.”
In another interview, he spoke with Evan Davies on Today about his entrepreneurial acumen and American politics. Damn, tea baggers.
