this is hilarious. atlanta rock outfit o’brother have spent the better part of the last few months opening up for thrice’s farewell tour. last night, the band took to the stage during thrice’s encore, stealing a spot and performed creed’s “higher.” and pretty well at that. golf claps all around, fellas.
saturday night was the heineken inspire encore secret show held at pier 36 just under the manhattan bridge in nyc. with a stacked bill featuring nas, cee-lo, j.cole, pete rock and diplo, there was hardly a complaint that the rumored kanye west wound up not performing (he was abu dhabi. do your homework people). everyone was treated to free heineken, jamaican beef patties, hot dogs and tacos all while watching the star studded lineup.
hit the jump to catch live videos of nas performing “ny state of mind,” and “if i ruled the world,” cee-lo getting vulgar with “fuck you,” and star-bourne j. cole doing “higher.”
game’s gotta stop letting the best songs off his album. this puts the count at TWO good songs, y’all. swizzy produces this monster (no ye) with game and jay spitting something mean. will be on the r.e.d. album, but then again, probably not.
the game – higher f. jay electronica and swizz beatz
this was dropped off to the wwm inbox lately, and i listened based off of the theo martins feature, but i’m really digging this cut. the beat was produced by trackslayerz (who most recently cut t.i.’s “i’m back”) and features a nice verse from the likes of fly c and theo.
fly c – higher f. theo martins and paul lowe
we try to stay away from tagged tracks, but this new cole track is way too good not to throw up. off an upcoming tapemasters, inc. mixtape, cole absolutely kills this track on the mellow tip.
hopefully we’ll be graced with a tagless version soon enough. good lookin’.
PANDA EDIT: bringing this up. now updated with tagless version.
j. cole – higher.
