Lisa Evers breaks news of one of Hip Hop music’s biggest unsolved murders. More details will develop during the day.
Diddy announces to the world that he has become Hip Hop’s first official billionaire.
“I started out as a young boy from Harlem, that couldn’t even be a waiter. They didn’t want me to be a waiter. So you know what I did? I became a billionaire!” #ForMotivationalUseOnly
Funk Flex releases classic throwback interview/freestyle with Notorious B.i.G and Craig Mack from the vaults of Hot 97.
After watching The Smalls “Warning” courtesy of WSHH, I checked out their youtube page and discovered they have done a bunch of these. I am shocked that these videos using the classic lyrics of Biggie Smalls have been around a whole year, and they need to send some love to WSHH for getting these some much needed shine. Take a peep at Episode 5 “PARTY AND BULLSHIT”.
Diddy aims to be bring music back to television with Revolt TV
The newly unveiled Time Warner partnership adds nearly 12 million current customers to Revolt’s potential viewership when the channel debuts later this year, with programs that Combs says will carry a certain “rawness” to them to complement the heavy emphasis on airing music videos.
“We will not be doing a bunch of reality shows,” says Combs, alluding to the current lack of music programming on MTV. “We’ll be doing music-driven shows that will be exposing you to the discovery and curation of new talent. We’ll also be doing in-depth interviews and shows that will go into social issues with different panels and debaters of the culture. We’ll be doing our version of a Barbara Walters/Oprah interview, but with someone from this generation, and of this generation. We’ll be going to where the pulse of music is happening, and we’ll be covering it in the way ESPN will cover a sports story, with that level of urgency and seriousness.”
Newly signed to Bad Boy Records check out the video to French’s Montana’s street banger ‘Shot Caller’ which debuted yesterday on 106.
I guess a brand new record deal with Jay Z and Nikki Minaj being one of the hottest rapper on the planet has her back on her a-game. Still not with all the plastic surgery but the consensus is that this is the best she has looked in awhile.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
I was having this discussion the other day with my partner P Moor and it seems that no matter how bad former artists talk about there experience with Sean Combs there is always a new crop willing to get under his wing and receive the same fate. I don’t have all day to construct a list of all the people who were Bad Boy artists that are now extinct.
It seems that Mary J. Blige was the smart one who got away from him early but even she relapsed and recorded one of her more recent albums with him. I will never understand the logic behind this constant cycle. And that goes to you Royce the 5’9.
Come on Hip Hop community can we at least get through the damn weekend without someone getting hurt during the release of our biggest movie to date? When will we grow up and take responsibility when we are on a world stage and are on the eve of swearing in our first black president who makes no bones about being a Hip hop fan? SMH.

NEW YORK — Police say four men were stabbed at a New York City nightclub advertising an after-party for the film premiere of “Notorious” about rapper Biggie Smalls.
Police said Saturday a 21-year-old victim stabbed numerous times was in critical condition at Brookdale Hospital. Three others were stable.
The Djumbala club is in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn. Police did not immediately release further information.
While the party had been promoted as the “official” after-party, “Notorious” distributor, Fox Searchlight, said it was not related.
Smalls was born Christopher Wallace and also used the stage name “Notorious B.I.G.”
His debut CD, 1994’s “Ready to Die,” helped re-energize East Coast rap. He was killed in Los Angeles in 1997.
Yes the Black Bond sweepstakes have officially begun.

Brooklyn rapper Gravy has snagged the role of Christopher Wallace aka Notorious B.I.G. The rapper is due to star with Angela Basset who plays his mother. I must say Fendi and Gravy predicted this a very long time ago in one of their popular The Come Up DVD’s. I filmed Gravy years ago and was supposed to work with Fendi. Things never materialized but I can do nothing but wish them well.
First he was Puff Daddy and then he was P. Diddy. I understood why he changed his stage name. He wanted a fresh start after just be found innocent of different criminal charges and his best friend, the late Notorious B.I.G., gave him the nickname years before. I even understood why he wanted to be called Diddy instead of P. Diddy; Diddy just sounded better. Full story from guess blogger Matt Lindberg..(keep sending those articles!!!)
