Jay-Z – “D.O.A.” – {Music Video Premiere & Live Performance at B.E.T. Awards}

Posted in Uncategorized on June 29, 2009 by Yooj‽

So last night, I, along with legions of other dissapointed nutcases, spent about 4 hours of my life watching what proved to be one of the most haphazardly thrown together tributes that I have ever seen, also known as the B.E.T. Awards. In their defense, Michael did just pass 3 days ago, so I will put my actual tribute review on standby.

I think I’m being a little harsh though. I anticipated a weak show and can’t hold it against them giving the circumstances. Plus, I was only watching to see the new Jay video anyway….

If you don’t know by now, Elliott Wilson is running a media ripping sweatshop at RapRadar. These guys do not sleep. Ever.

So without further adieu…

And this, which was preceded by the most awkward Jamie Foxx and Beyonce moment ever.

The Stage

It’s wild. It’s wild to think that until this year, the kid has had yet to attend the Late Summer Classic known to many a tortured ear as Hot97’s Summer Jam.  Even wilder is the fact that I could probably recount 75-80% of the acts by year…in descending order.  Well, I guess that’s not such a daunting task, come to think of it, considering that it’d probably be just 10 acts….and 3 of them would be be D-Block.

But even so, the moment was still type exciting. I mean every city has a “Summer Jam”, but {insert city name here}’s Summer Jam could never even muster up the gumption to ask to carry the weed thru customs for the New York Summer Jam, an arena-sized pit of playlist-laced mediocrity, where the event itself always…excuse me…ALWAYS outdoes the show.

I woke up exhausted Sunday morning.  I also woke up content.  For about five days prior, I had been fighting bouts of denial, most of which developed from the, all too obvious signs pointing to definite more than likely Drake, Hov, and Cam shutdown moments that were bound to happen given the prior week’s “occurences”. But the Roots Picnic that I attended the nightday …previous 24-hour period did more than quench my thirst for open-air sonics, but it also helped place me in that snooty, holier than though, elitist mental space that a music snob needs to get over the fact that they {still} are not cool enough to always be on the comp list.

However, by a whim of fate, and some damn good timing, the kid found himself on the way to Giants Stadium to catch the live incantation of my morning….and evening…commutes.

So, with my Dillinger in tow and a variety pack of Holland’s finest {though we took the Lincoln…*rimshot*}, I tried to do my best job of not getting too riled up.  I knew it was gonna be a scene.  I was just hoping it was more I Am Legend Day Scene and less 28 Days Later Field Scene.

Tonight ends with me uploading “The Madness”. Everyone gettin’ thier late night grind on so they don’t have to wake up to being obsolete.  Of course the breakdown is to come.  In the meantime, I’m going with the easy layup to start.  Let this wet your whistles. I guarantee it’s the best “First Minute Of Madness” that you will find on the ‘net at 4:30a … I put my vocoder on it.
