Bria Myles broke the internet last week with a brand new photoshoot showcasing some very beautiful chocolate women at an unknown beach. This was a pleasant surprise due to the fact dark skinned women are consistently overlooked in current beauty standards and rarely get high profiled looks in magazines and music videos. Not sure when this will drop but Facet Studio will be the best resource to find out… Hit the jump from more of the photoshoot…
He went bananas. Never heard of this cat but going on his Youtube page he been putting in working so much success to him.
This is dope. You gonna see snippets of this on IG but here is the full version.

Definitely am feeling the drug-free conscious Gucci Mane.
Ya’ll sleep …Tip went in on this.
Crakk still nice. Hov needs to pick this guy up.
Rarely would I post an interview this long with all the distractions we have on the net and in daily life but this is going down as one of the best interviews in Hip Hop History. Props to Taxstone for not getting in the way of the gospel spoken by Sigel street.
Not sure when this drops.
The world’s 20 highest-paid hip-hop acts have earned about $4.5 billion over the past decade—not bad for a genre spawned from the ashes of the South Bronx. With the help of hip-hop’s founding fathers as well as modern-day Cash Kings, we explain how.
The Bronx phenom drops the visuals to his underground hit.

Rakim ruined Hip Hop according to Daylyt, and though this sounds crazy he makes some valid points.
I know its been out a couple days but still had to post this and the funniest reaction I have read so far. Some creative producers have once again took his acapellas and crafted beats around it.
This is fire. Can’t wait to see the rest of this.
I don’t think I have heard a rap song played this much.. ever. At this point did they even need a video?
Pretty dope series from Mass Appeal, whereas the chosen producer is then blindfolded picks three records and then makes a beat. Check out the previous joint featuring 9th Wonder.

Did Nicki Minaj post bail for her brother who has been accused with the rape of a child ?
The recently married older brother of pop singer Nicki Minaj was charged on Long Island with raping a reported 12-year-old child, sources told the Daily News.
His best rant yet on the state of rap in NYC.
I am glad that he owned up and took responsibility concerning their present indictment and incarceration and took the onus off of Epic Records to bail them out. Over the last year we have heard people including 50 Cent, and Dr. Boyce Watkins call on LA Reid to bail out Bobby Shmurda. LA Reid on a recent Rap Radar podcast explained why he could not bail out Bobby and he was pretty much slammed after the fact. The audio of his recent interview with Revolt TV is kinda muddy so I am posting the transcript below:

“It’s a waiting process right now,” Rowdy said, “My spirits are good, I ain’t letting nothing drag me down or what God has planned for me. It’s all in God’s hands.”
Maintaining the music behind bars, he goes on to add, “Only update I got right now, is that I’m about to drop a mixtape since I know the streets have been waiting. Its’ called Shmoney Keeps Calling, and even though I’m locked out that shit keeps calling me.”
And as far as Epic’s defense, he commented, “I didn’t expect Epic to get us out, because at the end of the day we’re not the best of friends, they just signed us to their company. They don’t feel the pain that my family and friends feel, but on the business side, they did invest in us. They don’t really owe us nothing.”
New visuals from Dave East.
Enjoy this people because we don’t get epic rap videos like this anymore. With cameos from Terry Crews and Corey Holcomb.
This is a go.
Well its actually $482,000 in back child support. I will let DJ Akademiks give you the rest of the story.
This dropped back in May but definitely needs to be re-examined because this kid is dope.
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.
UPDATE: MOS backed out like I thought.
Let’s hope this really goes down and not just a bunch of talk. We have seen this type of talk before and nothing materialize so I am gonna remain skeptical. Lupe’s answer after the cut .
“Me, Black Thought and King Los versus ANYBODY,” the 41-year-old Hip-Hop mainstay screamed. “I don’t care who you tell…Red Bull Music Academy, put up [$1 million dollars on the contest] and we’ll give our winnings to charity and take your money too. I’m tired of these dudes pretending like they dope. You alright but relax. The dope ni**as that think they dope, you ain’t as dope as you think.”
