Lounge Hype

  • Jay-Z at the Tunnel 3:8:24 4.00 PM

    8 MAR. 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Music by: Gail Nobles Photo:  Wikipedia  Usage: https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0 Welcome back to Lounge Hype. Today's topic is Jay Z at The Tunnel. I don't know who was the king at that New York City nightclub, but I know Jay Z was one of the main attractions. He brought excitement due to his performance.  There is a documentary on the tunnel, and I've seen and heard most people say (from the documentary) that Jay Z was the king there. I've seen more video clips on Jay Z at the tunnel more than I have anyone. Maybe they haven't released the rest of them yet.  You can see Jay Z live at the tunnel in 1999 on YouTube. Sometimes you'll see clips that will just say Jay Z live at the tunnel.  Whenever Jay Z would perform at the nightclub, it would be a crowded place. There would be loud cheers from the crowd. The music would be turned up, and Jay Z and his crew would be on the mic rapping with crowd participation. The crowd would rap too. It most certainly sounded as if Jay Z were king. He made the crowd active. He made the crowd move. The behavior of the crowd was more than words for Jay Z.  I'm Gail Nobles this is Lounge Hype. Today's topic: Jay Z. I'll be back with more about who performed at the nightclub. Stay tuned. Be sure to check out Jay Z's 1999 album volume three .. Life and times of Shawn Carter; certified triple platinum by the RIAA.

  • Aaliyah:Eve at the Tunnel 2:15:24 8.42 PM

    16 FEB. 2024 · Story by: Gail Nobles Keyboard and voice affects by: Gail Nobles Large crowd: Pixabay.com Welcome back to Lounge Hype. It was 1998 when Aaliyah performed at the tunnel with Timbaland. She performed Are You That Somebody upon its release. The song received critical acclaim from music critics with them praising its offbeat innovative production. In 1999, Aaliyah earned a Grammy award nomination for best female R&B vocal performance for the song. Initially, it was ineligible to chart on the billboard hot 100 mainly because it was an airplay single not commercially reloaded to retail stores. In December 1998, Billboard change it's policy to allow airplay only songs to chart on the Hot 100 and the song eventually peak at number 21. Another performer that performed at the hip-hop club was rapper Eve. She was live at the Tunnel 2000. Eve performed her single Let's Talk Abouta It featuring Drag On. Some say Eve was hot and smoking at the Tunnel. Some say she was the queen. The single let's talk about it came from the album Let There Be Eve … Ruff Riders First Lady. Eve had a lot to say in that title. The album was released in 1999. All the songs on the album were written by Eve herself. It sold over 200,000 copies in the first week. The album has sold over 2 million copies and was certified double platinum by the RIAA. Eve became the third female hip-hop artist to have her album peak and number one on the Billboard 200. When Eve perform Let's Talk About It at the tunnel with Drag On, the crowd was waving their hands and rapping with them. I’m Gail Nobles. I’ll be back with more about the night club The Tunnel in NYC.

  • Aaliyah Live at the Tunnel 2:15:24 1.39 PM

    15 FEB. 2024 · Photo: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:Mika-photography - Own work Usage: Wikipedia https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0 Story by: Gail Nobles The tunnel was a hip-hop nightclub in New York City from 1994 to 2001. Aaliyah was raised in Detroit, but she was born a New York City girl. I don't know how she performed at the tunnel with all the stuff that was going on there, but she did it. When Aaliyah performed there with Timbaland, the crowd bounced. She performed her hit Are You That Somebody. From the video clip that I saw of her, I didn't see any trouble. At clubs, sometimes fights break out and gunshots are fired. I don't know of anyone going to the clubs now that used to go in my hometown, but anyway, at The Tunnel in New York, sometimes there was trouble from what I understand. When Aaliyah performed at The Tunnel live, nobody seem disappointed. It looked like a moment for enjoyment for the crowd. All I can say is Aaliyah was a brave girl to perform there. Thank you for listening. I'll be back with more about the tunnel. Tune in again next time. Goodbye for now.
