I can’ t laugh at this enough. Just when my Wednesday was going slow I stumble upon this gem. This video is filled with gut-busting moments that will have you laughing your ass off. A few moves they go through are Basketball, Rabbit and the Running Man…I know, hilarious right? I think Jamie (around [...]
Fans expect mixtapes, EP’s etc. to be free. And the power has shifted from the Hustlers to the Hackers. There is room for everyone, but the question I pose is Can Street Rappers survive in todays internet age of hip hop?
Does the mainstream Hip Hop culture see lyrics as anything of value these days? Do the collective artists that sell millions of albums, millions of ring-tones, singles, you name it, really care about the culture? Is lyricism on commercial radio something of the past? And more importantly, what the hell is a Waka Flocka?
LMAO!!! If this is just a made up story and you told me it was made up I still wouldn’t believe you. Goin in on Yezzy. Why hasn’t this guy had his own movie yet?
Uh-ooooooooh *side-eye* Seems like when 1 go in, 1 come out. It’s like the rap game is a phone booth or I guess the sound booth.
The magical microphone emcee I mean yeller I mean rapper is outta jail, yall. “WATCHA-SELF” First I’m VERY curious to know if he swelled up to the size of [...]
In 1984, in the confines of an NYU dorm room, Rick Rubin and Russell “Rush” Simmons formed a record label. They wanted to create a brash, loud, honest kind of music, a redefinition if you will of what people were starting to call hip-hop. Little did they know that this company, Def Jam Recordings, would [...]
First T.I. then Lil Boosie now GUCCI!…I’m trying to figure out, when did the music contract get mixed up with the court papers? Our new hip-hop habit demands the artist to be “Out with the skinny jeans and in with the P.O’s”!
Even though this isn’t a joke at all maaaaan, how hilarious! Either he has a serious case of the Wayans Brothers White Girls syndrome or he fell into a big ass tub of Middle Aged White Guy circa 1973.
Along with this being a great topic to discuss I couldn’t help but notice how out of place DJ Drama seemed to be. I know people (ahem!) who were watching this CNN special, ready to throw more fuel in the fire that is ‘hip hop haters’ after seeing how DJ Drama was dressed.
I thought, in lieu of all the seriousness of the topic and said to myself…”Damn her forehead is freakin’ huuuuuge! She had to head butt Chris a few times right? Like Tina did Ike? Or better yet *E.Honda style!”
So reluctant to post anything about this guy, seriously. Jamie Foxx discusses a video shoot he had with Plies where he saves Plies from getting jumped. Of course Plies wasn’t up to ‘goonin’ up.’ Audio inside.
First T-Pain’s “BIG ASS CHAIN” now Chris Brown’s diamond encrusted “Oops”
Ya boy, C-Breezy, was seen at Diddy’s, Malaria no more”, white party rocking a $300,000 charm that displayed the words “Oops”.
Some speculate the show piece to be his way of apologizing OR it [could] be a jab at the media and masses that assumed [...]
Strange things have been occuring in the last few weeks, stuff that I’ve ben taking careful notice of. At first I thought it was the normal influx of activity and restlessness that accompanies the arrival of spring. After a very long and tiring winter everyone has plenty of pent up energy that’s just bubbling to [...]
In 1987, when I was just ten years old, I had three things on my mind: Music, Movies, and Comics. Growing up as a little boy in the 80s was a special thing, being exposed to several different movements in different areas of popular culture that would later be known as “classic”. The birth and [...]
When I ask this question, I’m not asking in the sense of whether “real” rap still exist: I’m asking whether there is a cohesive aesthetic or community that can call itself underground rap? The Internet, with the help of smaller magazines and blogs have blown the lid off what can or cannot be [...]
The “angry black woman” stereotype is so played, and I don’t want this article to be an ode to this misrepresentation of myself as a black woman, but rather a declaration of my being a woman. I remember as a child watching music videos and to see a woman in a sports bra and [...]
Prodigy of Mobb Deep is a small man, but his mouth belongs to a man of stature, or in this case, his pen. There has been a letter that Paranoid P (let’ s just say I prefer this name now, especially after that video for Return of the Mack) sent from jail airing out [...]
I’ve been investigating hip hop beef a bit lately and the beef that has me excited is not the 50 Cent/ Rick Ross Thrilla in Vanilla, but rather one for the ladies: I really, sincerely hope that Keri Hilson drags Beyonce’ through the dirt. Now Hilson has tried to send Polow da Don [...]
I’ve enjoyed my time with you, but I’ve come to a new place in my life and I just have to discontinue our relationship. It’s going to be hard and you’ll still be in such high demand among so many everywhere, but it just isn’t going to work between me and you. After I [...]
It’s hard out there for the pimps who like Auto-Tuning: I have come to the defense of the practice and it’s practioners for a while now and most of the time my peers look at me as if I suggested that we all drink the Kool-Aid. I came down hard at the [...]
Former Bad Boy rapper Mark Curry is releasing a tell-all book based on his time with the record label and his memoir reveals shady business practices by Sean “Diddy” Combs.
The book, titled Dancing With The Devil, is slated for release in February. In the first chapter of the book featured on Curry’s site, Curry claims [...]
