[video] Mysonne on Future Poisoning Minds of Kids with Lyrics About Drug Culture

Real talk from Mysonne.

Mysonne opened up about a line about Future in a recent freestyle with Funk Flex, where he rapped, “Future said: ‘God blessin all the trap n****s’ / I got a question for that: “Where u at n***a?” He explained that he was speaking about the lyrics in Future’s music where he raps about the riches of the street life without talking about the pitfalls and consequences.

He went on to explain the difference in lyrics from Pusha T and Jay Z, who explain what will happen if you decide to go down the road of selling drugs, but Mysonne said that similar messages aren’t made in Future’s songs. To hear more of what Mysonne had to say, including how Future’s music negatively influences kids, hit the above clip.

[video] Windowless Concept Airplane

People seem to be really freaked out by this. But this breaks down to dollars and sense, because they are hard at work to bring the cost down of gas which they are burning through quicker than a lit match to a piece of paper.

First off, these are all high-concept ideas; no airline is about to phase out its expensive window-lined 757s anytime soon.

Hope you’re not too attached to looking out the windows when you fly—the designers of tomorrow’s airplanes seem intent on getting rid of them. A Paris design firm recently made waves when it released its concept for a sleek, solar paneled, windowless passenger jet. Before that, Airbus proposed eschewing windows and building its cabins out of transparent polymers. Now, the Center for Process Innovation has floated its own windowless plane concept, and it’s attracting plenty of attention, too.

So, because an arbitrary rule someone made up says three makes a trend, I guess we have to seriously consider the prospect that flying in the future won’t include plexiglass portals to the outside sky.

[video] Did Future write “Drunk in Love ?” (Performs Unreleased Track “Good Morning” at SXSW )

Based on what he says before he performs it, he had something major to do with the interpolation medley of this song which magically turned into Beyonce’s hit record “Drunk in Love”. I could see Beyonce hearing the original song falling in ‘love’ with it and it being rewritten for her. This is the music industry people and this type of sh*t happens everyday. If you want more details (no pun intended) go HERE..

 

 

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.

Apocalyptic ‘Knowing’ hits anxious chord

NEW YORK (CNN) — The numbers were good for “Knowing.”

The film, about a physics professor who sees clues for disastrous events in a time capsule’s list of digits, overcame some pretty long odds at the box office — going against the Paul Rudd-Jason Segel comedy “I Love You, Man,” the Julia Roberts-Clive Owen romantic thriller “Duplicity” and some fairly scathing reviews — to emerge as the weekend’s No. 1 film.

Though star Nicolas Cage wouldn’t have predicted the outcome, in an interview before the film’s release, he did talk about the power of positive thinking.

“I’m a huge believer of the human spirit,” he told CNN. “I think people are amazing. I think what we have accomplished is incredible. … If you think positive and you apply the guts and ingenuity that mankind has been doing forever, at least in our existence, I believe we get through anything.”

Cage’s character, John Koestler, is a science professor whom Cage describes as “someone who is reawakening to his faith.” He begins the film believing that everything is random, but as the film continues — and he seeks to alert the world of a coming catastrophe — “he believes there is cause and effect and perhaps even a divine mind,” Cage said.

The film begins in 1959, with students burying items in a time capsule at an elementary school. One of the children, however, creates an image of seemingly random numbers. Fifty years later, when the capsule is opened, Koestler’s son receives the page of numbers, and his father realizes that they correspond to major disasters of the past half-century.

Koestler determines that three events have yet to occur and sets out to meet the clairvoyant child’s now grown daughter. The final event threatens life on Earth itself, and the group begins a race against time, with unusual consequences. Continue reading
