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.

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
The bee hive is hysterical right now.
An investigation into how the Clintons have amassed millions in personal wealth through foreign contributions to the Clinton Foundation, a supposed charity, in exchange for political favors while Hillary Clinton was the US Secretary of State.
The film, based on the New York Times bestselling investigative book Clinton Cash by Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer, has sent shockwaves through media. The New York Times, Washington Post, ABC News, and other Establishment Media have verified and confirmed the book’s explosive revelations about how Hillary Clinton auctioned State Department policies to foreign Clinton Foundation donors and benefactors who then paid Bill Clinton tens of millions of dollars in speaking fees. via Breitbart

His best rant yet on the state of rap in NYC.
Nas shared his story with The FADER x Sprite. “Growing up in Queensbridge, hip-hop was the most amazing thing I’d ever heard,” says Nas in the Obey Your Thirst documentary, made by The FADER and Sprite. “There was nothing more important to me than having a voice. I wanted to make a big impact on this art form. I wanted to open up a doorway for another generation.”
Considering that these are words coming from one of the most revered rappers of all time, behind one of the most beloved albums of all time in 1994’s Illmatic, it’s safe to say that Nas has succeeded in making his dreams a reality. But how did he make it all happen? In the video, Nas gives up-and-comers some advice, insisting on following your vision regardless of what other people say: “Why do something that’s not you? Trust in yourself and always push the envelope.”

“And they say if we’ll only avoid any direct confrontation with the enemy, he’ll forget his evil ways and learn to love us. All who oppose them are indicted as warmongers. They say we offer simple answers to complex problems. Well, perhaps there is a simple answer—not an easy answer—but simple”
I got that black on black skin tone
That’s why I dropped the cruel on every verse you heard me sh*t on
Okay, it’s a Slumdog Opera
The tale of a king whose name wasn’t on the roster
My road to glory was Road To Perdition
And Act II: The Turn is just the memoirs with no omissions
We came a mighty long way from standing near the stove in the cold
The greatest story ever told
The realest n*ggas see the pain in my story boards
The true believers say [Walaki] I support the boy
My life feel like a highlight reel, this is lightning striking
Feel how the Zeitgeist feel
Get a slight chill
When asked by Sway on his relationship with Jay Z, Dame unloads on Jay Z’s close relationship with a Desiree Perez who is a known DEA informant and according to reports works closely with athletes in Roc Nation Sports. Perez is the wife of longtime business partner OG Juan, who is rarely seen and never does interviews.
via DAILY NEWS
Court records obtained by The News show Perez was part of a massive cocaine distribution case in 1994. Following her arrest, she became a key government cooperator, going undercover to help the DEA build successful cases against major traffickers in Puerto Rico and Colombia.
Cooperation with the feds won her supervised release, but she went on the lam and then served nine months in prison.
Perez was a 26-year-old mother of young children in 1994 when she was arrested in New York for possession with intent to distribute 35 kilograms of cocaine, according to court records reviewed by The News.
SKIP to 54:30 for his stance on Jay Z.
Federal authorities charged she was part of a drug conspiracy stretching from New York to Florida to Puerto Rico.
She and co-defendant Amaury Lopez faced at least 10 years in prison (Lopez was supposedly one of at least three men to marry Perez since the late 1980s).

Dallas Cowboy and Roc Nation’s own pro bowl receiver Dez Bryant shows there is no off season with this crazy core workout.
So after finally reuniting at the B.E.T Honors Awards a few weeks ago, Dame and Ye’ sort of announce a partnership for a new film company. We’ll just have to sit back and wait to see if they are really serious about bucking the middleman and doing it on their own.
This is funny as f*ck. I posted the Pt 2. to Flex’s rant against Jay Z after the cut.

Jay Z’s business empire expands this week with the signing of Dallas Cowboy receiver Dez Bryant to Roc Nation Sports and the purchase of Ace of Spades. Full story below:

In his song, “Young Forever,” Jay Z envisions a life where “you never get old and the Champagne’s always cold.” He may not be able to do much about aging, but he may be able to help with the chilled bubbly.
Just days after the British beverage giant Diageo swapped whiskey for tequila, taking control of the Don Julio tequila brand from Jose Cuervo, a new company led by Jay Z has acquired Armand de Brignac Champagne from Sovereign Brands.
Complex makes its case as to why “Nas is the Real King of NY”.
This lady’s letter was very heartfelt and though she calls out Kanye for being MIA when it comes to the important issues going on in Ferguson and across the country, to which even our President has had to discuss on occasion, she did it with intelligence love and with no judgement. Sadly Ye’ seems to be more concerned with the worship of Kim K. and making sure she is viewed as a fashion icon, his own problems behind the scenes within the lily white fashion industry, and being viewed as a genius than the plight of the black community. Hopefully his silence is just temporary and he makes some strong statements in his new music releasing sometime soon.

You have spent much of your career defying naysayers and the standards people have set for you. You refused to be intimidated by guys on the South Side of Chicago for your creativity. You broke free of being only a producer when you proved Jay Z wrong and became one of the biggest names in rap music. When music executives tried to control the content of your music, you released the now-infamous “Jesus Walks.” When Nike would not give you creative control over Yeezys, you took a deal with Adidas instead.
You are, by definition, defiant. And I love that about you.
Hip Hop superstar Rick Ross sits down with Zack O’ Malley Greenburg in Wingstop in Brooklyn, to discuss his perceived low placement on their hugely popular Hip Hop Cash Kings list. Ross kinda dodges the direct questions and if he really wants to be in the top five with Dr. Dre, Jay Z, Diddy, and 50 Cent he will need to do much bigger tours and not a paltry 18 shows last year.
Jay Elect and Hov get together at the 10th Anniversary of the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival and give the crowd a rousing rendition of their freestyle to Drake and Soulja Boy’s “Nigga We Made It” and aptly changed it to “Brooklyn We Made It” for the hometown crowd.
Dame has been hitting on all cylinders with these interviews and I am gonna post every single one of them.
Dame Dash explains why he called music industry exec Lyor Cohen a “culture vulture” on Instagram, telling VladTV that he believes Lyor should move on from Hip-Hop and “stop raping our culture.” He then questions what Lyor and Joie Manda have contributed to Hip-Hop culture while holding higher positions at esteemed music labels.
Speaking about his own interaction with Cohen, Dame says that he’s never had a problem with Jay Z, and says Lyor “ruined” Roc-A-Fella Records. He also shares his thoughts on Lyor’s new label 300, saying that he’s probably “robbing whoever he’s in business with.” When Young Thug, who’s signed to 300, is brought up, Dame says the label might not be taking the Atlanta rapper on a ride, because he’s managed by Birdman.
At the end of the interview, Dame says that he believes label execs like Lyor and Joie should be questioned about their roles. He also adds that he can’t be blackballed by the execs, as they don’t cut his checks.
