Prodigy Top Tracks
Live From the Kennedy Center
Runtime: 52 minWhen Nas was just 19 years old, he composed what would become one of hip-hop’s defining masterpieces, Illmatic. To mark its 20th anniversary, Nas delivers a standout performance alongside the National Symphony Orchestra at Washington DC’s Kennedy Center. With conductor Steven Reineke taking the orchestra through arrangements of beats by DJ Premier and Large Professor, Nas delivers impassioned renditions of tracks like “N.Y. State of Mind”, “The World Is Yours”, and “Memory Lane (Sittin’ in Da Park)”. Between songs, the program cuts away to both archival and new interview footage to document Nas’ rise from Queensbridge upstart to influential rap icon.
Kiss of Death Tour 2005
Runtime: 1 hr 3 minConsidered by many to be at his best in a live setting as apposed to the studio, Jadakiss is very much in his element in this spectacular set filmed in London in 2005. It features highlights and hits from his recent solo work as well as his earlier recordings made with The Lox and The Ruff Ryders. The set includes the hits, 'Time's Up', 'Knock Yourself Out', 'U Make Me Wanna', 'We Gonna Make It' (his instant underground classic about street mayhem), 'Put Ya Hands Up' and 'Why'. The last-named caused uproar over its linking George Bush with a 9/11 conspiracy theory and was banned and censored by US radio stations. Despite his tough and uncompromising social and political songs, often with inspired lyrics dealing with everyday life on the mean streets - guns, drug-dealing and robbery and suchlike - they have nevertheless crossed over into the pop mainstream.
Live in Montreux
Runtime: 1 hr 22 minIn July 2007 the famous Stravinski Auditorium at Montreux was witness to a gathering of the Wu-Tang Clan. With the exception of the sadly deceased Ol' Dirty Bastard, the whole Clan was present: RZA, GZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Raekwon The Chef, U-God, Ghostface Killah and Masta Killa. Also joining the party were some of their extended family members: Cappadonna, Streetlife and DJ Mathematics. This rare gathering of the full clan took Montreux by storm and got the whole audience on their feet and jumping with a set featuring all their best known hits and classics plus a number of solo tracks, including a clutch of Ol' Dirty Bastard hits.
Up in Smoke
Runtime: 27 minMaking an appearance at the sixth annual Smokeout Festival in San Bernardino, California, was multi-platinum rap artist DMX. The only rap artist to have five consecutive platinum and number one albums simultaneously, DMX performs some of his most popular jams in this final performance before his decision to concentrate on his acting career. See the King of Rap perform his most powerful thug-life anthems, "Who We Be" and "Ya'll Gonna Make Me Lose My Mind," plus two of his biggest hits, "X Gonna Give It To Ya" and "Kaido." In this show, DMX ignites the live crowd like no other rapper can, and demonstrates how he became one of the prime forces behind mainstream Hip Hop's return to street realism during the late '90s.
