[video] Quentin Miller: Meek Mill and His Crew Beat Me Up Over Drake Ghostwriting

Another L for Meek. If it comes to be fact that Meek wanted Quentin Miller to write for him as well and that he beat him up over it, he has taken L’s to a whole new level.

Quentin Miller confirmed a relatively-unknown tale involving him and the Dream Chasers while chopping it up with DJ Vlad. During the interview, Vlad shows Miller an unreleased clip from his Taxstone interview where he revealed knowledge about Meek Mill confronting Miller at a Los Angeles Nike store. After reviewing the clip, Quentin admits “it’s true” before describing what all happened that day.

According to Miller, Meek Mill didn’t care for his statement denying he was Drake’s ghostwriter last Summer. “I shed blood in the Nike store,” Quentin confessed as he recalled getting confronted by the group who first wanted him to retract his claim in front of paparazzi. After telling them no, the Dream Chasers proceeded to beat him up as he made Meek Mill out to be a liar. “I’m not a street n***a so you can have it,” Miller states in reference to Meek. “You can have the tough title – that doesn’t do anything for me.”

In the Taxstone interview, the media insider also claimed Miller was beat up because he wouldn’t write for Meek Mill, a rumor the rapper wants no parts of. “I’m not going into detail about that,” he firmly stated.

[video] Why Air Jordans Aren’t Selling Out Anymore

Has the sneaker bubble finally burst ?

If you’ve been sneaker shopping in the past few months, you may have noticed something out of the ordinary: Air Jordan Retros are sitting in stores.

This may seem like a normal thing for the casual footwear consumer, but it’s odd for any sneaker with a Jumpman logo on it. In the past, nearly every re-released Air Jordan has been met with people lining up outside of stores and mass fanfare on Saturday mornings when Nike officially sells the product online. But that’s been dying down and at an alarming rate.

[video] Noisey Atlanta – Rich Gang: Sometimes You Win, Sometimes You Lose – (Episode 8)

Wonder if Trinidad James gets anything for his phrase “Don’t Believe Me Just Watch” currently anchoring the #1 song in the country “Uptown Funk” from Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars? He at least deserves a shout out.

In episode eight of Noisey Atlanta, we examine just how quickly the ups and downs can happen in the trap world. In short, the scene moves fast. To start things off, we meet Bankroll Fresh at a barbershop and talk about the rise of his late summer 2014 hit “Hot Boy.” Then we find ourselves in the studio with the elusive Young Thug before linking with Rich Homie Quan, who tells stories of getting out of jail and eventually forming Rich Gang with Birdman and Thugger (fun fact: RHQ and Young Thug apparently went to middle school together). Later, we catch up with Trinidad Jame$ over a year after the explosion of “All Gold Everything,” showing what can possibly happen to a hyped up rapper after the machine spits ‘em out.

[video] VICE 20th: Ghostface Killah – “Daytona 500”

Rae and Ghost always deliver.

Ghostface Killah performs “Daytona 500” at the VICE 20th Anniversary Party.

In December, 2014, VICE threw a massive rager for 3,000 of our closest friends at the Duggal Greenhouse in the Brooklyn Navy Yards. VICE staged dozens of performances throughout the evening, bringing together musicians as varied as Megadeth’s Dave Ellefson to The Unicorns’ Nick Thorburn to Ghostface Killah and Lil’ Wayne, to perform some of the songs that have defined VICE over its twenty years. Hell, Jonah Hill even rapped Drake, backed by our very own Spike Jonze on guitar.

Of course we recorded the whole thing and we’ll be putting up many of these unique performances onto the VICE YouTube channel so you can check them out.

[video] I Witness News — Fake Drake (Jimmy Kimmel Prank)

Would of been so much funnier if they would of went to the hood.

Drake wanted to find out what people really thought about him, so we had him try his hand at a version of Lie Witness News. We disguised him and sent him out to ask pedestrians what they think about Drake. This is fake Drake – in “I Witness News.”

Little do they know that the Nation has been influencing Hip Hop since the beginning, I guess it took global superstar Jay Z for them to take notice.

These are just some of the ­beliefs behind the bling — the gaudy Five Percent Nation ­medallions worn by Jay Z and Carmelo Anthony.

Emmitt Till Estate Pens Open Letter to Lil Wayne

Screen Shot 2013-02-21 at 7.31.39 PMLil Wayne obviously has no PR firm that is trying to stop the bleeding from his biggest blunder of his storied rap career. After going on the radio to apologize to Miami and Lebron James (sans Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh)for his recent rant at his NBA party in Houston. That all aside, he still has not addressed this issue and the radio hosts who interviewed omitted any questions about his ‘beat the pussy up like Emitt Till’ lyric on Future’s remix of his track called “Karate Chop”. This remains something that needs to be publicly addressed and his needs to sincerely apologize to the family of Emitt Till. The estate of Emmitt Till has penned an open letter to him. Here is an excerpt below via Huff Post.

Yesterday marked a week since the “unofficial” release of “Karate Chop~remix” inclusive of your lyrics. The words we speak are powerful enough for preservation of life but also have the capacity to destroy it. When you spit lyrics like “Beat that p—-y up like Emmett Till”, not only are you destroying the preservation and legacy of Emmett Till’s memory and name, but the impact of his murder in black history along with degradation of women.
