Released on September 24, 1991, A Tribe Called Quest's The Low End Theory is the quintessential moment where hip-hop let its jazz muse fly. Others – most notably Gang Starr – had explored fusions between jazz and hip-hop, but Q-Tip, Phife Dawg and Ali Shaheed Muhammad evoked a cool bebop ethos that none had achieved before. They metaphorically drew comparisons betweenThis article originally appeared on www.rollingstone.com: A Tribe Called Quest's 'The Low End Theory': 10 Things You Didn't Know

Bruce Springsteen has revealed what his five favourite songs from his own career are. The musician appeared on The Late Show last night (September 23) to promote his autobiography Born To Run. Host Stephen Colbert asked Springsteen to name his five favourite Springsteen songs, to which the Boss replied: "That's a tough one." He continued: "I got to put 'Born to Run' up there. I guess for me, 'The Rising' is a big song. What do we play every night? We play 'Thunder Road' really regularly. 'Nebraska' was a good one." As Rolling Stone reports, he then took suggestions from the audience, first selecting 'Jungleland' as his fifth choice, before replacing it with 'Racing In The Street'. "These are everybody's top five, by the way," Colbert joked after Springsteen had finished his list. Springsteen also spoke about his concerts, which are famous for often being nearly four hours long. "The band doesn't complain until around three hours and 40 minutes," he said. "It's that last 20 minutes that for some reason even makes the E Street Band [angry]… slightly, someone may mention it to me. "Why they go that long? I'm not exactly sure. I've been doing it for a long time."

Bon Iver's Justin Vernon has said pop stars like Beyonce doing sponsored tours and working with huge brands angers him. The musician, who releases his third album '22, A Million' on September 30, has spoken about the responsibilities of modern pop stars in a new interview. Speaking to the Guardian, he said: "You have to believe in something. Like, I'd prefer Beyoncé didn’t do a Pepsi tour. Do not take two million dollars from Pepsi and be a role model for young girls. Do not do that." He continued: "That stuff does anger me. And I feel like I am not afraid to talk about that stuff." Elsewhere in the interview, he also revealed it was Kanye West who reminded him of the importance of looking after yourself. "Kanye speaks of how you have to love yourself. And believe in yourself," he explained. "I heard him say something recently: 'I love myself so other people can love themselves.' "So they get up in the morning and put on a song and be like 'FUCK YEAH'. And that is what it's for."

Beck's new album has reportedly been pushed back until November. The record had initially been announced for an October release and the first single from it, 'Wow', came out in June. As Stereogum reports, there is now no mention of the October 21 release date on the site of Beck's US PR. In a round-up of albums still to come this year, the New York Times lists the as-yet-untitled record as due for release in November. A series of reissues from the artist are, however, due to come out on October 28, while there is speculation that the new record could have been moved back since Lady Gaga announced her latest record, 'Joanne', will be released on October 21.

Jared Leto has lost a lawsuit centred around a video of him insulting Taylor Swift. The clip was published online last year by TMZ and showed the actor and musician talking about the singer disparagingly. "I don't like this at all – next," he is heard saying while listening to '1989' album opener 'Welcome To New York'. Leto concluded by saying: "I mean, fuck her, I don’t give a fuck about her. It’s whatever works best for us." It was filmed in Leto's home by videographer Naeem Munaf. Leto filed a copyright infringement lawsuit after it was published, claiming it was "stolen footage". As Vulture reports, a US District Court Judge said because it was filmed on Munaf's camera and he wasn't an employee of Leto's at the time, he could legally do whatever he wanted with it. After the video leaked online, Leto apologised to Swift, calling her "an incredible example of what's possible".
