Coachella weekend has been filled with surprises thus far and legendary rapper Nas not only delivered an energized set, but possibly the biggest guest appearance of the weekend. Nas celebrated the occasion with a special tribute to one of the most iconic albums in hip-hop, playing his Illmatic album in full for it's 20th year anniversary.
If that wasn't enough on it's own, he participated in Coachella's spirit by bringing out a very very special surprise guest, fellow New York hip-hop icon Jay-Z (who he once had a huge feud with), to perform "Dead Presidents" and "Where I'm From". Nas snuck in a few other hits including "One Mic" and "Made You Look". To help end the set, he brought Diddy out for "Hate Me Now". All together it was easily one of the most entertaining hip-hop sets we have ever seen. Stream the entire performance below and enjoy!

"I F*cking Love My Life Right Now…"
The words echoed throughout a packed audience within the Sahara Tent at Coachella Music Festival as Skrillex, one of the top producer / DJs of our current electronic music generation, took the stage full of zest and sporting a brand new production rig for his one of a kind "mothership". Sensory overload was greeted with an engaging performance from the OWSLA kingpin as a combination of stunning visuals on display for the first time and tailored specifically for this set, coincided with the artists signature delivery of music spanning multiple genres. Yes, bass music was the main focal point of the performances as were tracks off Skrillex's recent debut artists album Recess, but the rawness and fearlessness to transition into hip-hop/rap, place an interlude featuring MGMT's "Kids", and having guest appearances from Dillon Francis and A$AP Rocky made the set as special for those in attendance or watching at home could have asked for. Stream the set below via SoundCloud or Youtube below and above all… Enjoy!

The original funk lordz are at it again as Chromeo have released yet another scintillating music video off their forthcoming studio album White Women. We didn't think it was possible for the duo to come up with a catchier single than "Come Alive", but the poppy lyrics, slap bass riffs, and electro-funk melodies featured in "Jealous (I Ain't With It)" are brought to life with Dave 1 and P-Thugg acting out the lives of Vegas wedding chapel businessmen and encounter various couples with a cameo appearance from A$AP Ferg. Mark you calendars for the May 12th release of White Women and stream this brand new music video below! Enjoy
