Hope For Haiti Now – Jay-Z, Bono, The Edge & Rihanna Perform “Stranded (Haiti Mon Amour)” & More Coverage

Bono, Jay-Z & Rihanna

When the sky falls, and the Earth quakes.. We gon’ put this back together, we won’t break

I watched almost the entire Hope For Haiti Now telethon event last night, and I’m so thankful I did. If I said it was extremely moving, that would be an understatement. I found myself breathless and teary-eyed as artists, musicians, actors, directors and more put aside differences and united to answer phones and accept donations on behalf of  the various organizations helping the relief effort in Haiti. The broadcast also featured personal stories about Haitians that survived the horrible natural disaster in addition to newscaster Anderson Cooper & others detailing the monumental effort to treat the thousands of injured and emotionally-distraught.

Musical performances included Jay-Z, Bono & The Edge of U2, Rihanna, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Madonna, my wifey Christina Aguilera, my other wifey Alicia Keys, The Roots, Justin Timberlake & Matt Morris, John Legend, Beyonce, Coldplay, Shakira, Mary J Blige, Sting, Kid Rock, Keith Urban, Sheryl Crow, Dave Matthews, Neil Young, Emeline Michel and of course, Haiti’s son Wyclef.

MTV has a sweet rundown of all the performances here and check out some photos here compliments of Concrete Loop. Click the links below to donate and grab your copy of the Hope for Haiti Now album on iTunes with the various performances in great quality MP3’s.

If anyone has the full telecast of the event, can you please link it in the comments section? Thanks in advance.

Shout to Ian for the video of Jay-Z, Bono, The Edge & Lil’ Mama Rihanna below (am I the only one who thinks Rih Rih looks out of place on stage with legends? Oh well.). I hope you find it in your heart to donate to help those suffering from this devastating tragedy, and (try to) enjoy the music!

Sound (& Video) Table 8/20/09

For today’s edition of the Sound Table I had to include some new videos storming the innanets. Up top is “Run This Town” from Jay-Z’s upcoming LP Blueprint 3 featuring Rihanna & Kanye West, down below is the remix to Jamie Foxx’s “Digital Girl” with ‘Yeezy, The-Dream & Drake.

After that are some gems, including a demo tape from Eminem’s early years and the album that B.o.B. should put out if Atlantic wasn’t bullshitting taking their sweet time. It reminds me of Little Brother’s Getback all over again.

Ready? Enjoy!

TRU Brain Trust on “Run This Town”

Rih Rih

The homie Rizoh and the good people at The Rap Up enlisted my services to weigh in on Jigga’s new single with Rihanna and Kanye West. I’m pretty much just using it as an excuse to post up a picture of Rih Rih in a bikini.

Check out my thoughts and those of the rest of the TRU Brain Trust here. We’ve got some good stuff cookin’ up, thanks for the support.

J. Cole – Lights Please (Mastered) & Full Lyrics

Warm Up

While the internets wait for Shawn Carter’s new single with Rih Rih and ‘Yeezy, we’ll have to settle for a new version of an extremely dope track from Hov’s Roc Nation signee J. Cole.

I updated my original post with the full lyrics, but it seems that North Carolina’s promising young MC liberated the mastered version of the song of the year best jam off his Warm Up mixtape, “Lights Please.”

Peep the download link below and the full-length lyrics after the jump. Song spotted at Nah Right, lyrics typed by yours truly.. Enjoy!

Download: J. Cole – Lights Please (Mastered) [Dom’s note: New Link as of 2/7/10!]
