It’s evident why Oakland rapper G-Eazy was able to establish millions of YouTube plays years before he secured a major label recording deal. When he played the Yahoo On the Road series’ stop at the Lifestyle Communities Pavilion in Columbus, Ohio on Monday, he connected with his fans via his performance, music and personal interaction. [Photos: G-Eazy in Concert for Yahoo On the Road] The 25-year-old Loyola University graduate appealed to the college audience by smoking marijuana on stage, thanking them for their early support, and connecting with select fans during a meet and greet. Instead of closing the show with his biggest radio hit, the artist, who released music independently for more than six years, instead offered the audience a treat he was sure they would appreciate — his song “Loaded,” a record about partying and getting high. One of the women standing on the side of the stage handed him what appeared to be weed, and he took a couple puffs before exhaling and riling up the crowd

Three decades ago, Def Jam Records was born in Rick Rubin’s tiny NYU dorm room. “I can’t believe it’s 30 years,” he recently told Rolling Stone , paying a visit to his old Weinstein Residence Hall for a special documentary titled Rick Was Here. “It’s really trippy.” By 2014, the label has gone national, scooping up artists like Young Jeezy and Ludacris when they expanded with Def Jam South, and global – who remembers Def Jamaica ? – but last night, they brought it back home with an anniversary Autumn Jam at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Gene Simmons could soon be playing the role of his lifetime: A god. The Kiss singer and bassist is currently shopping around a music competition show called Coliseum , on which competitors form bands and perform for a panel of three judges. They also mix and match group members until finding the right combination until Simmons, the show’s “Rock Caesar,” gives a thumbs up to the winning combination. “If you’ve got the goods, I will be the god that will make your dreams come true, because I do have the power,” Simmons recently told Mipcom Daily News (via Classic Rock .)

A new trailer for “Unbroken,” Angelina Jolie ‘s sweeping period piece about Olympic track star and WWII POW Louis Zamperini, offers audiences a closer glimpse and the young man’s struggle to survive in a Japanese war camp — and how he uses his boyhood experiences to fuel his will to live. Zamperini ( Jack O’Connell ) grew up with an older brother who pushed him to do his best at all costs out on the track. “If you take it, you can make it,” the elder boy urges his younger brother, a lesson an older Zamperini soon finds himself remembering as his fighter plane is downed in enemy waters, and he struggles to stay afloat for close to 50 days. Those are just the beginning of the young man’s struggles, as he’s then captured by Japanese forces and thrust into a brutal war camp.

I know I typed this a few weeks ago but still getting asked almost daily (thanks for caring!) about new episodes of That Metal Show.

We will once again be shooting from NYC and like last season be doing shows on a weekly basis.
