Jack White’s Third Man Pressing—the new record pressing plant housed in the back of Third Man’s Detroit shop—is holding a grand opening party today. Last night, before the party that’s open to the public, Third Man threw a private opening party. The night closed with a performance from Danny Brown, who also shared the below photo with Jack White (which he titled “The Teacher and The Student”). Jack also christened the new pressing plant with a toast. “Remember this moment, because we’re making things beautiful last for the next generation,” he said. Find footage of Danny’s performance and Jack’s speech below. Yesterday, Third Man shared a video tour of the new plant.

Watch Danny Brown on Pitchfork.tv’s “Over/Under”:
Last night, Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze engaged in a “battle of the beats.” It streamed live on YouTube and lasted for over two hours. At one point, Swizz dropped an unreleased song that appears to feature Jay Z, Nas, DMX, and Jadakiss. (The producer seemed to confirm that all four men were on the track when he retweeted the below Busta Rhymes reaction gif.) The entire battle is available below via Hot 97. Find the track with Jay, Nas, DMX, and Jadakiss at 2:27:12.
