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.
Compton, California, is known for launching the rap careers of stars like Kendrick Lamar, and music provides a promising avenue out of the community’s cycle of violence. In the second of six segments of Noisey Bompton, we spend a day with Kendrick’s childhood friend Lil L, who’s pursuing his own musical ambitions. L’s grandma invites us over for a gumbo dinner and shares her experiences as a mother and grandmother who’s lived in Compton since 1965. Then we head to one of the West Side’s many hole-in-the-wall studios, where L gets to work recording with his friend Earl Swavey and producer Larry Jayy.
Compton, California, is one of hip-hop’s most celebrated locales, the birthplace of acts like N.W.A. and, more recently, Kendrick Lamar. It’s also home to a complicated gang culture. Noisey Bompton centers around Kendrick Lamar and the friends he grew up with on the West Side of Compton, many of whom feature on the cover of his album ‘To Pimp A Butterfly.’ n the first of six segments, we sit down with Kendrick to talk about his acclaimed albums, pay a visit to his high school, Centennial, and get to know his childhood friend Lil L.
Noisey Bompton is a new documentary made by the people who brought you Noisey Atlanta and Noisey Chiraq.

Dr. Dre’s burgeoning relationship with Apple has been in the making for sometime, so all the stiff suit analysts can’t stop with the shock and awe that this deal is going down. Dre and Jimmy Iovine from the start said that they wanted to build the new Apple with Beats Electronics.
The always controversial Suge Knight visits Arsenio Hall and talks about the current state of the record industry and how bad The Game and Kendrick Lamar’s record deals really are. Whether you like Suge or not for his past transgressions he does speak the gospel in terms of artists always being the last to profit off of their work.
After hearing the shocking and disturbing news that George Zimmerman is an actual celebrity and is going to have a so-called celebrity boxing match , news broke that The Game stepped up to the plate and was quickly dismissed by the promoters. Various reports then came out that Zimmerman wanted to fight Kanye West because of him constantly attacking the paparazzi who he deemed innocent and defenseless. Now we have confirmed that DMX will step in the ring to fight Zimmerman. This is bad on all fronts and Hot 97’s The Realness morning segment declares why this fight CAN NOT HAPPEN.
Hosted by DJ Skee, The Game’s Hood Morning (No Typo): Candy Coronas, has a little something for everyone. Although I get tired of people rapping about their gang affiliations and bad bitches, I will say that The Game continues to prove that he is a Hip Hop professional. With songs like Monster, The Game, Out of Towner, Grave Yard and Rough you get the storytelling and soulful side of The Game. Then there are songs like Infrared, which does nothing or me at all but download it and judge for yourself. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD

One thing I must say is that she does photograph extremely well and deserves a contract with Ford modeling company. As far as the other shenanigans that is up to you guys if you are really interested in her personal life. That being said she has responded to The Game’s much talked about “I’m So Wavy” that takes aim at Jay Z and her for unknown reasons. My brothers over at HIPHOPSTAN got the scoop:
“GAME SEEMS LIKE A REALLY NICE GUY I WISH HIM THE BEST OF LUCK. FOR HIM TO DISS ME I FEEL HONORED TO BE ON HIS MIND I WISH HIM THE BEST.”
