I saw him at the Mezzanine not to long ago. It's a pretty good weekend for the club it's at, Fri - The Coup, Sat - Common (Glo afterparty), Sun - Mos performin Black on Both.

$25 isn't too bad either.
186463, wow that sounds dope. i can't believe it's been 10 years

Maybe my standards are too high. I saw him and Talib in 2000 and he killed it. Ever since then I've been seriously underwhelmed by the 2-3 performances I've seen since. Maybe the disappointment started with him showing up at 11:30 even though doors opened at 9 (I get it, hiphop shows start late. But GTFOOH with that 2.5 hours late bull shit). Then seeing him play some new cuts and "lipsynching" got me a even fowler mood. Plus while I appreciated some of the old school jams that he included as interludes, they could have been a lot shorter.
