Action Bronson performs "Strictly 4 My Jeeps" at St. Hilda's nursing home [Video]

Screen shot 2013-07-31 at 2.10.34 PM

While out in the UK, Action Bronson and Noisey gave a local nursing home a surprise performance of Bam Bam's single, "Strictly 4 My Jeeps."

You know older people don't like rap much or at all. Well, the folks at St. Hilda's were good sports and sat through the performance. While some did cover their ears (pictured above), most of them had nice things to say about Bam Bam and even rated his performance an average of 6.

Not too shabby for an old folks home! Oh, and they really liked his beard. Watch the performance below and tell us what you think in the comments.


Back & Forth: Action Bronson x Alchemist interview each other [Video]

Master chef turned rapper Action Bronson and The Alchemist, who are meant to be releasing a joint album sometime soon, chilled together in Santa Monica for the latest instalment of Noisey's 'Back & Forth' series, in which two artists chop it up. Predictably, they shared some abstract exchanges and a few straight-up nonsensical ones. Read more


Flying Lotus talks US v UK dubstep, drugs and 'Until the Quiet Comes' [Video]

LA beat-maker and all-around musical phenomenon Flying Lotus was in a particularly expansive mood as he sat down with Noisey for a recent interview in London. With his new album Until the Quiet Comes due for release on October 2nd, and already available to stream, he had a great deal to say on his music and lifestyle, not to mention electronic music in general.

24 Hours with Odd Future in NYC (Part 2) [Video]

Miss them? Not long after showing us footage of the first part of their full calendar day following around Odd Future in NYC, Noisey present part numero dos.

In this new clip, the crew - in full force, which is a rare thing these days - stop by Terry Richardson's studio for a photo shoot (where, if you remember, they held an impromptu cypher), Frank woos the crowd at Terminal 5, Tyler and Earl cut it finely for their gig at the Best Buy Theater, and later Trash Talk go absolutely nuts at their show/the Odd Future afterparty. Even Frank was throwing fists in the pit.

Check it out below.

24 Hours with Danny Brown in London [Video]

After showing us what it's like following around Odd Future in New York City for 24 hours, Noisey return with another day-in-the-life of a famous rapper, this time with Danny Brown. The crew filmed the oddball emcee's recent trip to London, where he hit the studio with Lunice and Hudson Mohawke, a.k.a. TNGHT, brought the house down at the Boiler Room, and kept the party alive over at XOYO for Livin' Proof.

It's no secret that Danny's a fan of the music from the UK capital, but it looks like he had a hell of a time in the city itself, too. Check out the recap below, shot by Raj Chaudhuri.

24 Hours with Odd Future in NYC (Part 1) [Video]

Odd Future may have rocked Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend, but the crew were in New York City recently for a press run (in the most unprofessional sense of the word). Noisey had the pleasure of following Tyler, Earl, Jasper and co. around for a full 24 hours and caught every antic on camera. The gang invaded MTV's RapFix Live studios, supported their buddy Sagan Lockhart and his photography showcase, and posed with a half-naked cowboy in the street. Just an average day in the life of Odd Future, I guess.Read more


The People vs. A$AP Rocky [Video]

Earlier in the summer, Noisey sat down two of the stars of hip-hop's new generation, A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown, for a "back and forth" interview, which saw the pair ask each other questions (that was the idea anyway, they mainly just talked about bumping uglies with bitches).

It wasn't just the video itself that provided gold-standard entertainment; its YouTube comments served up a crop of chuckles, too. So funny (or insightful, or just plain controversial) in fact, that Noisey recalled Danny and Rocky separately to respond to a select few.

Giving his interview while out in Norway, A$AP calls Jennifer Aniston "pretty", debates impregnating Kathy Griffin and impersonates Beavis and Butthead. Check it out below, and be sure to catch up on Danny's predictably hilarious piece here in case you missed it.

VICE's music-orientated sister channel Noisey are serving up the treats. Following El-P and Big K.R.I.T.'s discussion we saw earlier today, the crew sit down A$AP Rocky (again) and ScHoolboy Q for the latest episode in their "Back and Forth" series, which sees two musicians interview each other.Read more


El-P + Big K.R.I.T. go "Back and Forth" for Noisey [Video]

Remember when Noisey sat A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown down for a chat, making for one of the most entertaining music interviews all year? Well, following the awkward small talk that occured between Childish Gambino and Chief Keef previously, the team have got Def Jux head and veteran underground rhymer El-P and one of the South's hottest products Big K.R.I.T. together in a clothing store to reinstate some humour.Read more


Childish Gambino x Chief Keef go 'Back & Forth' for Noisey [Video]

Georgia-born rapper Childish Gambino and Chicago representative Chief Keef sit down together for VICE Magazine's Noisey to give us their own Back & Forth interview. Taking out the middleman, the duo enjoys the weather and asks each other a few questions. Read more


Harry Fraud discusses production techniques, working with Action Bronson + Riff Raff + more [Video]

It was only a matter of time before Harry Fraud had the Noisey spotlight shined on him. For the latest installment in VICE's sister channel's Let The Beat Build series, they sat down with New York's storming new beatsmith, who boasts a diverse collection of clients like Juicy J, Action Bronson, Wiz Khalifa and French Montana (for "Shot Caller", famously), as well as with Jet Lifers Smoke DZA and Curren$y for the full-length projects, Rugby Thompson and Cigarette Boats, respectively.Read more


A$AP Rocky + Danny Brown "Back and Forth" interview (Parts 3, 4 + 5) [Video]

After providing what is probably the most entertaining interview of the year with the first two parts of their "Back and Forth" interview yesterday, Noisey return with the last three clips of A$AP Rocky and Danny Brown's unadulterated conversation.Read more


A$AP Rocky + Danny Brown "Back and Forth" interview (Parts 1 + 2) [Video]

VICE's sister channel Noisey set up a pretty interesting interview recently. Not content with chatting to A$AP Rocky or Danny Brown alone, they had the pair interview each other while out in Barcelona for Primavera Sound and, to no one's surprise, the conversation took some odd turns. Put it this way, the first question from Rocky was "What's your favourite kind of b*tch to f*ck?".Read more


Hit-Boy reveals A$AP Rocky's "Goldie" was originally for Jay-Z | Music News


VICE's sister channel Noisey recently had the chance to pick Hit-Boy's brain at Glenwood Studios in California as part of their "Let The Build Beat" segment. The storming producer claims credit for such contemporary hits like Lil Wayne and Eminem's "Drop The World", Jay-Z and Kanye West's "N****s In Paris" and A$AP Rocky's "Goldie", and in the interview actually revealed the latter wasn't intended for Rocky at all, but for Hov, instead.

Mystikal interviewed by Kool A.D. of Das Racist [Video]


Hopefully you'll remember Noisey's unique new hip-hop chat show, Rap Show (if not, make your greetings here). Following the first episode which saw Das Racist's Heems sit down for a chat with Kendrick Lamar, it's his counterpart Kool A.D. who's playing host this time, with the now jail-bound Mystikal.Read more


Kendrick Lamar interviewed by Heems of Das Racist [Video]


For the uninitiated, Das Racist are pretty funny guys. The quasi-genius rap trio from Queens, comprised of Heems, Kool A.D. and hypeman-slash-lunatic Dap, were deemed funny enough by the people over at Noisey (which is in turn run by the people over at VICE) to be granted their own rap show, which is, fittingly enough, called Rap Show.Read more
