Probably the hardest opening bars to a rap song ever, outside of Prodigy’s “There is a war going on outside , no man is safe from..” Shouts to Chuck D.
Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin discussion on the impact of legendary group Public Enemy is accord with the 30th anniversary of hip hop powerhouse Def Jam. Still not feeling the omission of Professor Griff because he was integral to their success and him being left out is a travesty in itself. With that being said, Public Enemy changed the game, as Russell alludes to in this interview with Noisey for their Back and Forth series.
Peter Rosenberg responds to the much talked about comments from Chuck D who has stated that his goal is to change urban radio.
Definitely wanna hear Ebro’s response to the points Chuck is making, who has never held his tongue when it comes to how he feels about the current state of Hip Hop music. I would also like to hear Chuck address the fact that this current crop of ratchet reality television was practically built from Flavor Flav’s “Flavor of Love” which spawned everything we see now in terms of urban reality show programming.
“The look on my face after I heard what a sloppy fiasco @hot97 in NYC has made of HipHop. #culturalCrime,” Chuck D said in the Twitter post.
One of Chuck’s followers responded by saying Hot 97 has to “pay the bills like everybody else.” To this, Chuck said: “yeah slavery paid bills too, correct?”
He elaborated: “bottom line is you make sht better than how you found it. You buy a house, don’t take care of it, a town is calling u out..”
I am all for Flavor Flavor opening up a business, but are we not at fried chicken overload in this country? Fried foods have been proven to be the precursor to heart disease, obesity, and a bunch of other ailments, and the last thing people need is another fried chicken joint.
Rapper and reality show star Flavor Flav is opening a fried chicken restaurant in Clinton, Iowa. Why Clinton, Iowa, which even Flav admits is “way out here in the middle of some place”? His business partner, Nick Cimino, is from Clinton, and it was his idea to open the restaurant, which is located next door to a KFC. Flav had previously sold his chicken wings at a restaurant Cimino owns in Las Vegas.
Flavor Flav sings with auto tune? Chuck D is vomiting right now.
Later this month, “The Simpsons” will jump into its 21st season with yet another entry in the fantastic “Treehouse of Horror” franchise.

As you can see in the posse shot below, some real heavy hitters are represented: Biggie Smalls, Tupac, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, Flavor Flav, Andre 3000, Eminem, Eazy-E and Fat Joe have all been converted into cartoon versions of their former selves.

After being visually assaulted with repeated repeats of Flavor of Love Family Reunion I’m still scratching my head and asking why did Flav pass up on this? Candace “Black” Cabrera’s was the hood’s candidate, we was all rooting for babydoll. I mean I’m all for the “black” family and all and it was admirable to see Flav keeping it funky with his babymoms but I mean c’mon homie, you could’ve at least picked this over ‘Thing Thing.’ Flav, you get the GAS FACE of ’08.

Man that Flavor Flav knows how to pick em’ or does he ? Because who in their right mind would not pick Shay “Buckeey” Johnson in any contest. The Flavor of Love alum has keep her self busy with mucho magazine and television appearances since being wrongfully booted of the show in season 2.We here salute Shay and wish her the best in her pursuits and rate her an ‘WOW!!!'(Flavor Flav voice).
