London live: Jay-Z and Erykah Badu

Yo, I just got back from a week in London. Had the good fortune to be there while Jay-Z was in town - he headlined Glastonbury of course, and also played a show a few days ago at Hyde Park, which I checked out. It was off the hook as you might expect - Hov had the crowd in the palm of his hand.

What impressed me most - as a true anorak - was the quality of the lighting and the sound. The videos below don't do them full justice, but give you some idea of the crowd response.

The umbrellas are up because of the Rihanna track - luckily by then the skies had cleared. Earlier in the week I managed to catch Erykah Badu at the Brixton Academy. Another dope show - her band was mad tight and she carried herself like she was from another planet. My favourite bit was the Dilla dedication below:

All told, a good week!
