Motown. Where it all began. While it’s been 55 years since the formation of the iconic Motown Records, the legacy that it holds is far beyond it’s years. From the arrival of some of the music’s most celebrated artists to the lengthy careers of some of its most influential, Motown has been home for many of R&B’s most important artists throughout the years.

Now, to celebrate all that it’s done for R&B and the music industry in general, a release of the historic Motown 25: Yesterday, Today, Forever TV Concert and Special is being released on DVD for the first time ever! The legendary televised event originally aired on NBC on May 16, 1983 and is still one of the most talked about concert specials to date.

Hosting iconic occurrences such as Michael Jackson’s premiere of the moonwalk aka “six seconds that changed the world,” and the first battle of the bands between The Temptations and Four Tops, the Emmy Award winning spot has been unreleased since its original broadcast date. Taped before a live audience, the show saw almost every Motown artist to ever serve on the label’s roster including the late Michael Jackson and Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, The Supremes, The Jackson 5, The Miracles, The Temptations, Four Tops and many more. Hosted by legendary comedian Richard Pryor and serving as the back story to the Tony nominated Broadway play Motown: The Musical, the televised concert event was surely a night that has gone down in music history.

Fans will now be able to own this once-in-a-lifetime concert with over 14 hours of bonus features packaged as a 6-DVD collector’s set, a 3 disc special, or just a single disc. Each package features an extended version of Motown 25 with over 20 additional minutes not seen in the original broadcast, exclusive interviews with artists, and much much more.

Jeremih & Fabolous uncapped

The FADER and vitaminwater have partnered once again to present #uncapped, a series of concerts dedicated to supporting emerging musical talent and “hydrating the hustle” of today’s breakthrough artists.

The concert series kicked off last night in New York City with live performances by Jeremih and Run The Jewels (Killer Mike and El-P).

Dressed in all-black with a gold chain and dark wayfarers, Jeremih opened his set with a live rendition of “Bo Peep” supported by a four-piece band. Not too long into the set, the special guests started rolling out. First was Estelle, who joined Jeremih for their duet “Be In Love,” before performing her mega-hit “American Boy,” with Jeremih providing harmonies.

Harlem’s Vado showed up to rap on him and Jeremih’s recent collaboration, “Bae,” but it was NYC hip-hop staple Fabolous, who stole the show joining Jeremih for a couple tracks, including their hit “Thim Slick.” The R&B crooner wrapped things up with two electric performances: a slightly downtempo take on his breakthrough hit, “Birthday Sex,” and his newest smash, the YG-featured “Don’t Tell ‘Em.”
