T.I. & Young Thug on Jimmy Fallon

T.I. appeared on Jimmy Fallon last night for not only an entertaining performance but a great interview as well. First, he brought out Young Thug, for his first ever late night TV performance, so they can perform their single “About The Money” after he rocked “No Mediocre” with The Roots. And before he closed out the show, T.I. sat down with Jimmy to talk Iggy Azalea and his reality show, until Will Arnett interrupts to start a beef between T.I. & Fallon. Very enjoyable below.

Wiz Khalifa on Jimmy Fallon

Wiz made his presence felt on Jimmy Fallon last night — first, in one way you’d expect with a performance of “Stayin Up All Night” alongside The Roots. Just prior to that, he joined Jimmy, Nick Cannon and Megan Fox for a game of Pictionary. Classic Fallon. Where else can you see these 4 play a game of Pictionary? *nods head* View below.

Kanye West, OutKast, more: Life is Beautiful

The 2nd annual Life Is Beautiful Festival is set to hit downtown Las Vegas this October and the lineup is as premiere as any festival this summer. As the headline reads, Kanye West and OutKast are in, and amongst the headliners that also feature Foo Fighters, Arctic Monkeys, and Skrillex. More hip hop and R&B are represented by Lionel Richie, The Weeknd, The Roots, G-Eazy, DJ Mustard, and Dizzy Wright.

Last year’s festival brought 60,000 attendees to a part of downtown Las Vegas that many tourists are likely unfamiliar with. It’s near the Strip and Old Strip, but nothing like it as you can sense from the sweet recap video below. The festival also features many learning talks and celebrity guest chefs for further mental enrichment and tasty nourishment. Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, and one of the co-founders of Downtown Project, is expecting over 100,000 people this coming Fall, as stated in a talk of his I attended last week at the AIA Convention (more on that soon…) Get a sense of what to expect this year with the video once again beneath… it’s only going to get bigger in 2014 as late October is now the go-to travel weekend to Vegas this Fall.

Dave Chappelle talks meeting Kanye

Funniest thing I’ve seen all week.

Dave Chappelle joined Jimmy Fallon for a sit-down on the Tonight Show last night and shared a few memorable stories from his experience with the rap game’s legends. As the headline suggests, Dave tells a more in-depth version of the first time he met Kanye West, before Kanye was a star, which included listening to Jay Z’s classic “Moment of Clarity” for the first time with ‘Ye, Common, and Kweli (who were name-dropped on the song, if you recall). I can’t spoil this series of amazing moments so press play above and let Dave’s masterful delivery take you through.

Also leading up to the Kanye story, Chappelle shares another humorous account of meeting The Roots for the first time, and below, the second part to his sit-down with Fallon that centered around his discovery of fake Dave Chappelle’s on Facebook and Twitter. Dave’s dead-pan delivery was masterfully on display here too. Lots of laughs above and below.
