New Orleanian Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., better known to the world at large as Lil Wayne, has jammed a couple of lifetimes into his first 30 years, but that’s bound to happen when you sign a music contract at age 9. That’s when Wayne linked up with rapper B.G. to form the duo the B.G.’z and became part of the renowned Cash Money roster.

Organizers of the 12.12.12 Sandy relief concert got Bill Clinton to plead with Led Zeppelin to perform (they, again, said no); Mountain Dew and Hip Hop aren't mixing so well lately, as the soda company axes endorsement deals with Lil Wayne and Tyler, the Creator, for controversial lyrics and a goat commercial (respectively); and a Minnesota man pretended to be David Gilmour while getting checked out at a local hospital and was promptly arrested when staffers looked up a photo of the real Gilmour on the web.

Music Tonight: Young Jeezy, Brighton MA and More

Hip Hop star Young Jeezy performs tonight in Corryville, bringing his tour behind the recent Thug Motivation 103: Hustlerz Ambition album to Bogart's for an 8 p.m. show. The Def Jam Records recording artist released his major label debut, Let's Get It: Thug Motivation 101, in 2005, spawning the hit single "Soul Survivor," featuring singer Akon. The South Carolina-born, Atlanta-based MC (once a member of the group Boyz n da Hood) put out two more albums — The Inspiration and The Recession (in ’06 and ’08, respectively) — which featured guests from R. Kelly and Keyshia Cole to Nas and Kanye West (their collabo "Put On" was nominated for a Grammy), and he's appeared as a guest himself on singles by Usher ("Love in This Club") and Rihanna ("Hard"). The Thug Motivation masterclass skipped ahead to 103 (perhaps Thug Motivation 102 is audit-only?) and was released late last year after several announced release dates came and went. The album landed at No. 3 on the album charts its first week out (in the midst of holiday shopping fever, making it more impressive). TM 103 once again features a pretty heady guest list, with cameos by Yo Gotti, Lil Wayne, Freddie Gibbs, Jay-Z, Andre 3000, Jill Scott, Snoop and Ne-Yo, who appears on the most recently released single "Leave You Alone."  Check the video below (NSFW for language, excessive head tattoos and gratuitous product placement for Crown Royal and Ciroc vodka). Tickets for tonight's show are $25 (plus fees). Read more about Jeezy here.• Indie rockers Brighton MA — neither from Brighton nor Massachusetts — hit MOTR Pub tonight for a free show with great locals The Mighty. The Chicago band was formed by two members of Scotland Yard Gospel Choir upon their departure from that acclaimed Indie Pop ensemble, emerging as a successful and acclaimed unit in its own right not long after. An intense mesh of Folk, Rock and Pop, the band's songs have been used on TV shows (like Gossip Girl and Community) and in a successful Jack Daniels ad campaign last year during the holidays. The band also scored a sweet tour van to take a trip on Route 66 for an extensive promotional web series called "Rock the Route," which was sponsored(-the-hell-out-of) by Red Bull. Earlier this year, the group released a new 7-song EP called Billboard Sun, a warm-up for their second full-length, due later this year. Tonight's show starts around 10 p.m. Oh, and Brighton, Mass., is the neighborhood in which singer Matt Kerstein was born (in case you were wondering). Here's the band's "Good Kind of Crazy" (aka "the song from the Jack Daniels commercial"):• Veteran Country star Marty Stuart plays the Newport Syndicate tonight, part of the club/restaurant's concert series that matches musical performances with a dinner buffet (the successful series has featured artists like John Waite and Little River Band in the past). Read more about Marty here then get to the club by 6 p.m. for your meal. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. (For more food/show details, go here.) And check out a video for "Tear the Woodpile Down" from Stuart's forthcoming Nashville, Volume 1: Tear the Woodpile Down (due April 24). Stuart's career has crossed lines and touched on Rock & Roll and Bluegrass over the years, but Woodpile looks to be straight-up Country. Here's a great press-release quote from Stuart about the new effort: "When I first came to Nashville the most outlaw thing you could possibly do around here was to take Country music and blow it up into Rock & Roll. Mission accomplished! Today, the most outlaw thing you can possibly do in Nashville, Tenn., is play Country music.”• Equal Vision recording artists We Came As Romans (cover models for the April edition of Alternative Press magazine) will rock Covington's Madison Theater tonight with guests Emmure, BlessTheFall, Color Morale and Woe is Me (all on the road together currently as "The Fire and Ice Tour"). Doors open at 6 p.m.; showtime is 7 p.m. Admission to the all ages show is $19. Read more about the Romans here and check out their most recent music video, "Understanding What We've Grown to Be," below.• Syracuse, NY, native (boo! Go Bearcats!) Martin Sexton comes back to Greater Cincinnati tonight, performing at Oakley's 20th Century Theater "An Evening with …"-syle (meaning no opening act and lots of Martin all night long). The folksy Americana singer/songwriter is known for his fingerstyle guitar playing, skilled songwriting and soulful singing, as well as his "guitar-solo vocals," where he mimics guitar leads, Peter Frampton-style (at the 2006 Jammy Awards at Madison Square Garden, he had a sung-solo sing-off with Frampton — maybe Pete will show tonight?). Read more here. Tonight's show is at 8 p.m. and admission is $22. Below is the official video for Sexton's title track off of the recent 5-song EP, Fall Like Rain:

It was announced that Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne have been nominated for possible induction into the International Bowling Hall of Fame. (Kim Kardashian, Michael Jordan and the only people who make logical sense, Jeff Bridges and Bill Murray, are also up for the esteemed honor.)  

Galactic, Sade, Lil Wayne, You Say Party! We Say Die! and More

0 Comments · Friday, February 19, 2010
Sade's first new album in 10 years is the sterling Pop effort 'Soldier of Love.' Other than the biting and percussive title cut, which still goes down like well-aged scotch, this new collection could very easily pass for the follow-up to 'Diamond Life' nearly 25 years ago. Sade's voice and her band's expertise have aged beautifully, with a smokier and jazzier finish.
