This will definitely be a must watch even though he is probably the most hated man in Hip hop history I would dare to say.
Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua will direct and produce the tentatively titled project based on the life and exploits of the Death Row Records co-founder. Black Swan’s Bradley J. Fischer will produce alongside Fuqua. The Knight doc is the first in a series of new documentaries produced by Showtime that will spotlight iconic and controversial figures to be overseen by filmmakers.

Not too familiar with Cudi’s music but everybody seems to be raving about this video so here it goes.
I don’t know how I waited this long to post this. My boy just called me and was like did I hear this yet. Forgive me for sleeping on this when these two of the best to ever to do it.
Official video for ‘Lighters’ off the gold-selling Bad Meet Evil ep. Dope song by the way.
This guy The Weeknd is supposed to be the hottest and most sought after thing in the game right now. I recently read some quotes from Drake where he was just giving this guy a bunch of props. According to Fader:
The Weeknd released Thursday, the second of three projects promised before autumn’s end, last night around the time people are still drinking at bars but starting to think it’s time to go home. Their website promptly crashed, leaving a pile of tweeted alternate download links and tumblr notes in its wake.
I must say the video is dope.
Mr. ’100 Million’ dollars sits down with Forbes to talk money.
For some reason this has grown on me.

Classic Hip Hop shit. These two been friends and collaborators for a long time. If I am not mistaken, Nas wrote his biggest hit ‘Gettin Jiggy Wit It’.
Still trying to wrap my head around this. If you guys can explain let me know cause just looks weird to me. The illuminati talk will definitely be all the rage once people see these scans.
This has been all the rage today on Twitter. Sorry I am so late. Courtesy of Mediatakeout.

Brooklyn rapper Foxy Brown recently revealed she is mulling an offer to appear on the cover of Playboy magazine.
Foxy Brown broke the news during an interview with the New York Post on Sunday (July 17th).
I say Obama drop Biden and put M.C. Hammer on the ticket.
The A’s will be the first MLB team ever to award bobblehead transmogrification to a rapper. “Hammer worked as a clubhouse assistant for his hometown squad Oakland Athletics between 1973 and 1980 and the MLB squad will be the first baseball team to award a bobblehead doll to a rapper,” notes MTV.
Just when you thought Frank Ocean took over R&B, Drake comes back with some more heat, this one is called “Trust Issues”. I know some of you will be saying he recycled some of his DJ Khaled hit “I’m On One”, but this is sure to be a smash hit and play for the rest of the summer and beyond. Take Care droppin’ soon.
Well it seems this story has sparked interest from the NYPD.

NEW YORK — New York City police have begun an investigation into an online posting supposedly from a convicted felon who claims to have shot and robbed slain rapper Tupac Shakur.
Police spokesman Paul Browne said Wednesday if police determine the post is legitimate they will seek to interview the prisoner.
The claim was posted on the website AllHipHop.com. The person says he was paid $2,500 by another hip hop mogul to rob Shakur outside a studio in Manhattan in 1994. Shakur suffered gunshot wounds but eventually recovered. He was later killed in 1996 in an unsolved slaying.
Wow. We have definitely have been in a crazy resurgence of everything Tupac culminating with the street banger “Tupac Back” courtesy of Maybach Music signee Meek Mills and Rick Rozay. Now comes this out of the world news that Dexter Isaac has not only admitted to shooting Tupac Shakur back in 1994, but that Jimmy Rosemond aka Jimmy Henchmen paid him $2500 to do it. Unbelievable.
A man has admitted to shooting rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994 after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond inside Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November of 1994.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.
Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15th) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday.
” Why do you look like that?” I think Drake should of asked how old she was before he started his art of seduction routine.
Lupe Fiasco courts controversy again with his comments about President Obama. I can definitely understand his points, but to rest this squarely on Obama’s shoulder is short sighted because these current policies have been in action for decades upon decades, so his mantra of blame it on the black dude will come up short with alot of people. This is a corrupt system without a doubt and yes voting will not do anything to change that but how many are willing to accept that only through bloody revolt would anything change in this country.
Finally this drops, wonder why they took so long. Maybe too many dead women.
Looks like a commercial to me.
Eminem has reportedly sued German-owned carmaker, Audi, for unlawfully using his song “Lose Yourself” in an advertisement campaign planned for their 2012 Audi A6 Avant.
Rule #1080 of course holds true in 2011.

They make millions from fans who love their music, but an exclusive CBS Atlanta investigation found big names in hip hop are stiffing the little guys who help them get to the top.<br> Recording engineers in Atlanta have provided CBS Atlanta with unpaid invoices and court judgments going back years. They said lack of payment by producers and record labels has become a huge problem, devastating their businesses in some cases.
We just have to ignore these clowns at Fox News. Check out some footage from the White House Poetry event put together by First Lady Michelle Obama.

This is a little video I put together of my experience at The White House Poetry event. Thanks to @smurf4lyfe @missjillscott @imdjdummy @oneblackman Dudley’s, Rhea, Nicole, Cristen, Shawn Gee,
So to dumb Eastwest Goon who made the even dumber comments below, here is a pic of a fan getting a Tyler the Creator tat, to prove that these guys like I said are ‘a phenomenon’.
These guys are officially a phenomenon.
Let’s try this again.
The more rare footage of the legendary 2 Pac the better. Also you guys should look up his step father Mutulu Shakur, who was a great influence on his life,music, and legacy.
Hardly ever use this blog for self promotion but today I will. Check out the review of my mini movie Hustla “Empire on the Rise” starring Yung Brodee. Let me not forget everyone who worked on this and made it all possible. It was a great experience and we are getting set to come with Part 2 so stay tuned.
The “hood movie” has been an essential part of hip-hop for well over a decade. Partially pioneered by Master P, the genre became a cash cow during the DVD boom of the early years of the last decade, with everyone from Game to 50 Cent to the Diplomats cashing in on the trend.
With the rise of YouTube and the popular online video emporium World Star Hip Hop, street-based reality films have tended to appear for free on the Web, and tend to boast a production value commensurate with third grade. Accordingly, keeping tabs on South L.A. rapper Yung Brodee’s productions has been a pleasant anomaly for the inconsistent genre.
[video] Wendy Williams & World Interview 2004 (Speaks on Homosexuality, Secret Societies, and Masons in Hip Hop)
Extreme warning if you do not want to here a raw interview about Hip Hop and homosexuality, Masons, etc. do not listen to this interview, because it is definitely not kind to your favorite rappers. You have been warned.
The original post was done on my blog a few years ago by my former business partner and continues to garner a ton of comments. With the Mr. Cee tranny controversy in full swing, it is a fitting interview to re-post. This is the pre-DWTS Wendy Williams of NYC radio frame and her interviews were probably the most controversial stuff ever to hot the airwaves.
To those who say this is just a rumor. This would be the foulest April Fool joke in the history of April Fool’s and why would HSK risk a serious defamation lawsuit reporting this and it be a total lie. No one would risk a lawsuit over Mister Cee, trust me.
Come on Mr. Cee? Having oral sex with young boys? I have no idea how Hot 97 will try to sweep this one under the rug but this guy is obviously a closeted homosexual who has alot of things to deal with and getting arrested by NYPD is just one of them. If this is true The Finisher is Finished.
Hot 97 Deejay Calvin “Mister Cee” Laburn (executive producer of the Notorious B.I.G.’S debut album “Ready to Die”) was busted by NYPD cops before being hauled off to jail and charged with lewd conduct. It happened this past Wednesday at about 5:00 p.m. That’s when cops approached a parked car and caught Mister Cee in the act of receiving fellatio from a man inside the vehicle. The 44-year-old music man was booked at Manhattan’s 1st Precinct, located at West Street and Watts Street.
