I’m all for rap artists jumping into different genres if it sounds dope. This right here, is clear reaching on the part of Hip Hop legend Snoop Dogg. The white chick with the nice little apple booty is named Ljupka Stević and I seriously doubt she had anything to with this collab. First off the song is listed as Snoop Dogg feat. Ljupka Stević but in reality he doesn’t appear until about half way through and the video was uploaded on her Youtube page. Maybe Snoop was really feeling the song (heavy sarcasm) or did a favor for her label. Who knows. But Snoop is rich enough to turn down some of these songs that just further tarnish the end of his career.
Somebody get my dude a good barber.
Desus and Mero visit the crib of Vine star Nicholas Fraser and get to meet the porcelain star of “Why You Always Lyin.” In his fact ascent to stardom perhaps the next time you see him he’ll be with Kanye West and Kim Kardashian.
Has Idris not proved he can play any role and become the best actor in Hollywood or he still too street?

Fuck buying a camera just buy a iPhone 6s and shoot a feature film. (Back to Back Apple posts not intended).
I used attachment lenses from Moment, a startup that makes great stuff (full disclosure – i am an advisor to the company) see here –http://momentlens.co/
I used an external microphone and I made a mount to attach the camera and mic to a tripod. I also color graded using FCx basic color tools.
Looks so much better than the Ashton Kutcher movie that bombed.

Unbelievable. Looks like some video game sh*t.

Despite the Internet community’s contemptuous efforts to exploit and publicize Snoop’s affairs with his neighborhood, he and Bigg Flossy B meet up in person to resolve their issues, demonstrating a commendable example of peaceful conflict resolution.
Next up to bat from the Mass Appeal roster is a Harlem-bred MC who goes by the name of Dave East. The budding wordsmith made his formal debut last week with “Demons,” the first single off his upcoming Hate Me Now mixtape. Now, he returns to the spotlight with a new offering, “Forbes List,” which features an expectedly strong verse from his mentor, the legendary, Nas. If you like what you hear, you can pre-order the project on iTunes.
I saw this story making its rounds across Twitter this morning. Do you think this is indicative of the negative effects that happen as a result of the Islamophobic leanings in the mainstream media? A simple misunderstanding and an unbiased safety precaution?
Irving’s police chief announced Wednesday that charges won’t be filed against Ahmed Mohamed, the MacArthur High School freshman arrested Monday after he brought what school officials and police described as a “hoax bomb” on campus.
At a joint press conference with Irving ISD, Chief Larry Boyd said the device — confiscated by an English teacher despite the teen’s insistence that it was a clock — was “certainly suspicious in nature.”
School officers questioned Ahmed about the device and why Ahmed had brought it to school. Boyd said Ahmed was then handcuffed “for his safety and for the safety of the officers” and taken to a juvenile detention center. He was later released to his parents, Boyd said.
“The follow-up investigation revealed the device apparently was a homemade experiment, and there’s no evidence to support the perception he intended to create alarm,” Boyd said, describing the incident as a “naive accident.”
Asked if the teen’s religious beliefs factored into his arrest, Boyd said the reaction “would have been the same” under any circumstances.
“We live in an age where you can’t take things like that to school,” he said. “Of course we’ve seen across our country horrific things happen, so we have to err on the side of caution.”
With the long-awaited release of Jay Rock’s sophomore album “90059” drawing closer, Top Dawg decided to liberate the visuals for the Black Hippy posse cut, “Vice City.” I would highly recommend anyone who hasn’t pre-ordered the album yet to go ahead and do so. You won’t be disappointed.
By now, many of you have gotten word of the latest craze on the Internet; it’s a music video by an 18-year-old white rapper from Hamilton, OH who goes by the name “Slim Jesus.” If you’re like me, you might be wondering how the hell this kid blew up out of nowhere and why is the hip hop community rallying behind such a mediocre and generic song? To be more specific, this video has landed placement on blogs such as HotNewHipHop, Complex, HipHopDX, and of course, WorldStarHipHop. He has already received co-signs and shout outs from industry figures like Lil Bibby, Meek Mill, Twista, Diplo, and DJ Akademiks. He has exactly three songs on his SoundCloud, the oldest of which was uploaded two months ago. He had zero online presence prior to this video going viral. If upcoming artists are given this level of exposure and it is not earned through the merit of their hard work and/or talent, then what is it? Their skin color, a gimmick, sex appeal, shock value…? I think the answer is clear in this situation.
Public Enemy put out a great video with a positive message less than a month ago that has garnered over a quarter million views and a quick Google search will show that it’s nowhere to be found on any of these sites. Hell, Chicago drill rappers Dae Dot and Reesemoneybagz released a song that is arguably far superior to Slim’s months ago and they rap over the same beat. And yet, their version flew under the radar; I wonder why? It’s moments like this in hip-hop that makes one question if the acquisition of a dollar holds more value than the love and appreciation of the art. Is that extra traffic to your website or likes on your social media post more important than respecting the craft?
Some controversy about this track with Ski Beatz in his own words “jumping the gun” and releasing this track under the moniker Mos Def which didn’t sit right with Yasiin Bey.
Nothing can stop a message that needs to be heard. As many examples of literature have shown since the 20th century, not even prison. In the 21st century, however, the platforms from which prison literature can reach the People has expanded into the world of technology. Penned, recorded and filmed inside of his cell at an undisclosed Level 4 prison in California, Lil’ Spank’s “Black August” attests to this new power at prisoners’ disposal.
Here is some more info on the video from it’s YouTube descritption:
To commemorate Black August 2015, Lil Spank Booty and MaeJAH League concocted a visual experience that functions as both a music video for his new single “Black August,” as well as a collage of hundreds of years of Black history.
“Sity By Da Border” mixtape coming soon!
Produced by: Signed X
Spank is currently serving a 37 year bid on trumped up charges for armed robbery and multiple accounts of assault with a deadly weapon.
