I was searching for some videos of last night’s Stevie Wonder tribute and found one of the main performances. It was courtesy of Beyonce, Ed Sheeran and Gary Clark Jr. who combined to cover “Higher Ground”. Those 3 names + Stevie Wonder. A no doubt viewing up above, ICYMI.
Pharrell (and hopefully his hat too) is going nowhere!
Official announcements say today that Pharrell will headline the performances at the NBA All-Star Game on February 16th. Also performing will be Janelle Monae, Gary Clark Jr., Earth, Wind, & Fire, and New Orleans natives Trombone Shorty with his band Orleans Avenue. And oh yeah, Kendrick Lamar will perform on NBA All-Star Saturday Night with the premiere spot before the main event: Slam Dunk Contest. More reason for us NBA-loving hip hop fans to tune in!
Here’s a new remix off the upcoming mixtape from the soulful Gary Clark Jr., Blak And Blu, as Big K.R.I.T. is enlisted for the title track. The latter spits a real nice verse with a thought-provoking message. This becomes a nice contrast and I’m vibing with the collab from beginning to end.
Song since removed.
