In November 2003, hip-hop legend Jay-Z threw what would become a legendary retirement party at the most important music venue in the nation: a sold-out Madison Square Garden. Joining him for this monumental musical celebration were some of the most popular artists in the industry including Beyonce, Mary J Blige, Missy Elliott & R. Kelly along with hip-hop icons P. Diddy, Kanye West, Damon Dash and more.
Narrated by Jay-Z himself, Fade To Black captures the stunning imagery of the onstage performances that night, the entire hip-hop family in candid backstage moments and also chronicles the soul-searching dramatic process of creating his best-selling The Black Album. This film looking back on the meteoric rise of his career is now a DVD that no true hip-hop fan should be without.

Footage of the 'Up In Smoke' tour of 2000, featuring the biggest names in hip-hop, including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Ice Cube. As well as the on-stage performances, there's unique footage of the stars as they unwind backstage and on the tour bus.
Self-described as having "a bit of the soul from Soul II Soul's Club Classics and a bit of the leftfield from Leftfield's Leftism," Sheffield DJ/producer Thomas Bell, aka Toddla T, is already setting himself up for quite the fall with such lofty comparisons for his sophomore outing, Watch Me Dance. While his follow-up to 2009's Skanky Skanky doesn't quite reach the heights of its two illustrious influences, it's a consistently inventive record that fills the genre-hopping dance void left by Basement Jaxx's recent foray into film soundtracks and Groove Armada's self-imposed hiatus. Recorded in Kingston, there's still plenty of the Jamaican influences that dominated its predecessor, such as the wobbly basslines and bouncy synth-led dancehall of "Badman Flu" and "Streets So Warm," and "Fly," a sun-soaked slice of one-drop reggae featuring a revitalized Ms. Dynamite, who also appears on the equally laid-back fusion of jazzy piano chords and authentic riddims of "How Beautiful It Would Be." But elsewhere, the Radio 1 In New DJs We Trust host utilizes his impressive roll call of guest vocalists to pursue a more U.K.-centric underground sound, whether it's Mercury Music Prize nominee Terri Walker on the smooth soul-meets-drumn'bass of "Do It Your Way," Brit Award-winning Shola Ama on the old-skool breakbeats and Italo house riffs of "Take It Back," or grime MC Maxsta, who showcases his quickfire skills on the curious blend of harsh beats, warped bass, and Gregorian chants on "Cruise Control." Surprisingly, two of the more high-profile contributions don't gel quite as well, as Roisin Murphy's minimal techno R&B number "Cherry Picking" is strangely subdued, while Roots Manuva's title track is a derivative attempt at electro-funk. But overall, Watch Me Dance is a triumphant speaker-blasting party record that cements Toddla T's reputation as the U.K.'s bass wonderkid. AMG
Shamir is Shamir Bailey, a 20-year-old Las Vegas native who grew up not on the strip but in the desert. His verve for life makes him almost impossible to categorize. As a young musician, he moves in and out of soul, r&b, house, disco, rap, and pop in the tradition of artists like Prince, Grace Jones, David Bowie, and Madonna. Genre is a tool for Shamir, not a boundary. Or as Shamir would put it, It doesn t matter what you sound like you just have to be you.
With an androgyne croon that recalls Nina Simone, Shamir rose from the suburbs of Vegas after sending demos to Nick Sylvester, who runs the GODMODE label out of New York. Together they made Northtown, Shamir s debut EP (2014), and continued their working relationship for Ratchet , Shamir s first LP for XL Recordings (2015). It s an ecstatic dance-pop record that also has some dust and age to it, sparkling with the grit of a desert geode. The songs are about growing up in Vegas, though not the Vegas you think you know. The music is fun even when it s mostly introspective, introspective even when it s mostly fun. There s an obvious fluidity to Shamir. He transcends boundaries genre, gender, age, geography. If he feels solitary, it s because there s literally no one else like him
