Take a look at Hip Hop Superstar Nas’s recent Fellowship at Harvard University.
Hip hop legend Nas speaks on the current state of Hip Hop on Talk Stoop with Cat Greenleaf.
Get familiar with this kid. He is working with Camron and is featured on his Ghetto Heaven Vol. 1.
Dope song, even weirder video.
After winning back to back championship rings, what else is King James supposed to do besides bust a few raps? The intro is kinda long though so give him a pass.
First and foremost 2 Chainz is lucky that he survived this incident without being shot. Secondly, for him to try to pretend that he was never robbed showed that he is not man enough to admit what happened and move on. He was even so bold to say the robbers would have posted his items online for the world to see. Well 2 Chainz surveillance footage has proved your delusional tweets wrong and you now know it is time for armed security guards.
In honor of the greatest rapper dead or alive untimely passing on March 9, 1997, here is some footage of Notorious B.I.G performing “Get Money” with his buddy a rapper named Jay Z.
This is definitely a must see once it drops if you are true member of this Hip Hop shit. NORE aka Papi has assembled footage he has been filming since the 90′s and early 2000′s to chronicle a true Hip Hop documentary worthy of a theater release in my opinion. Not a bunch of talking heads giving My favorite moment in this extended trailer is Nas and brother Jungle professing that backpack Hip Hop is not valid. My only critique is certain parts the volume is too low but I would surmise these guys will fix it in the final draft. No idea when this is slated to drop but we hope it does ASAP. Enjoy.
My directorial debut. Thanks to all involved it was a pleasure working with you and can’t wait to shoot the next episodes, should be great fun.

Following death of Derrion Albert, rapper says it’s ‘our responsibility’ to teach kids to value their own lives.
In the wake of the tragic death of 16-year-old Derrion Albert, many hip-hop artists have spoken out about violence, not only among the youth of Chicago, but in other cities like Atlanta and Newark. Nas wrote an open letter to Chicago teens following the honor student’s senseless beating death, urging them that they were fighting the wrong war.
Killer Mike blogged forXXLmag.com, apologizing to Albert and the four teens charged with his murder, Silvonus Shannon, 19; Eugene Riley, 18; Eugene Bailey, 17; and Eric Carson, 16, for letting them down. David Banner also addressed the situation in his song, appropriately titled, “Something Is Wrong.”
MTV News caught up withCommon at Wednesday’s Hennessy Artistry 2009 Seriesshow in New York, and the legendary Chicago MC echoed their sentiments. “For me, I grew up around it, but I have a great mom, have a wonderful stepfather and great family around, and I know every kid is not provided that blessing which we should naturally have,” Common said.
Later this month, “The Simpsons” will jump into its 21st season with yet another entry in the fantastic “Treehouse of Horror” franchise. To celebrate the upcoming milestone and to pay respects to some great hip-hop icons, Format and Moxy Creative have teamed up to produce a series of limited-edition posters that depict 10 famous rappers “Simpsonized.” The results are pretty great. 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.
For his fourth solo opus Born & Raised, Cormega went with a collage designed by friend/graphic designer/snowboarder/documentarian Brian “Decka” Paupaw to represent the different stages in his life and pictures of the Queensboro Bridge, Brooklyn Bridge and the NY Yankees logo to represent QB, Brooklyn & the BX (places he has called home) along with a silhouette of a smoking glock reminiscent of a burning World Trade Center. Mega Montana’s drops Born & Raised officially on October 20th. Order your Born & Raised t-shirts here. One. – ICE

LOS ANGELES — A judge has ordered Nas to pay Kelis nearly $44,000 in monthly support for the near future, a day after the “Milkshake” singer gave birth to the divorcing couple’s baby boy.
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Louis Meisinger issued the order at a Thursday hearing. Neither Nas, whose full name is Nasir Jones, nor Kelis, whose full name is Kelis Rogers, attended Thursday’s hearing.
Rogers gave birth to the boy, named Knight, at a New York hospital Wednesday. The 29-year-old filed for divorce from the rapper in April. The couple was married in July 2003.
Got this sent to me on Twitter and thought it was dope and that I should pass it on.
[video] Joaquin Phoenix Attacks Heckler Fan At His Own Concert In Miami While Rappin! (Then Gets Kick’D Out)
Actor turned rapper Joaquin Phoenix jumps off the stage during a performance at a Miami Beach nightclub and confronts an audience member who is heckling him. It is unknown whether the scene is real or fake. You decide.
It’s always healthy to be able to laugh at yourself, but the climate of Hip Hop is an all-out circus these days. Between Pimpin’ Curly and Joaquin Phoenix I don’t know which one takes home the honor of the most slapstick actor of ’09.
It seems that record and fashion mogul Dame Dash, who recently signed a multi-million dollar deal for wife’s Rachel Roy collection, is in deep debt with his luxury properties in Manhattan. Many have said that Dame has had a tremendous fall since he broke business ties with former partner Jay Z.
Roc-A-Fella Records company co-founder Damon Dash and his wife are in jeopardy of losing two of their Manhattan apartments after apparently failing to pay their hefty mortgages.
The bank holding the mortgages says in a court filing Dash and Rachel Roy owe $7.3 million on the properties and it has begun foreclosure proceedings.
Eastern Savings Bank says Dash and Roy were supposed to make monthly payments of $78,500.
Efforts to contact Dash’s lawyer and publicist by phone and e-mail have been unsuccessful.
Dash is the estranged business partner of rapper Jay-Z.
I like this alot. Off the WE GLOBAL album coming in the fall.

Nothing like some good ole freestyle lyrics from top dog Snoop Dogg. Kudos.
Probably one of the most clever and outrageous viral videos in the history of Hip Hop, Rick Ross shows that he truly has “money to burn”!! Trilla in stores now..
After securing a deal to serve a year and do 1000 hours of probabtion for mutliple assault weapon gun charges, TI has now been banned from speaking to students in Atlanta. I believe that this a crucial mistake because the kids in that district idolize him and they need to see and hear him say that what he did was wrong.
Kids today are not going to listen to anyone that they don’t identify with so like it or not rappers have to play an essesntial role in perhaps turning around kids who can’t separate reality from entertainment.
To the “shit for brains” blogger(Bol) who said :
…My issue is not so much why it is that T.I. is free to walk the streets – it’s that he plans to use his court-ordered community service to give lectures to today’s youth, what with their fragile, egg-shell minds. This strikes me as a bad idea for a few reasons.
