Nas Search For Hip Hop Across The Globe

0021Nas is an executive producer for a film Shake the Dust, a film that travels the globe and sees how Hip Hop since it’s birth in the South Bronx in the mid 70’s, has shaped the world through its culture around the globe.  Places like Uganda, Yemen, Columbia and Cambodia as well as other countries are showcased.  The drastic difference of Hip Hop culture is different from place to place and a lot of countries don’t get enough mainstream recognition.  This film is a perfect film to show how the rest of the world gets down, check the trailer for the video.

Game Being Sued By Police Officer For Punch In The Head

the-game-the-documentary-2-640x422Sorry this has to be the funniest story in Hip Hop so far this year.   A police officer is suing the Game for a punch in the head that he claims my have caused brain damage.  Heated basketball play between the two on March 29th lead to Game punching officer Onyebuchi Awaji, who was off duty at the time.  Actually after you watch the video, you’ll hear that loud noise Game’s fist makes when connecting to his head, so yes it’s possible that he caused brain damage.  Game’s lawyer in response to the lawsuit filed yesterday was Game hit him in self defense.  I didn’t see that, but if someone punches me in the head during a basketball game, I don’t care who you are, we fighting right then and there, lawsuit will come later.  Check the video from TMZ of the punch.

Activist Goes Off On Kenrick Lamar

Big deal regarding Kendrick Lamar last week, he was slammed by activist for dark skinned people.  She said she won’t support him, because he’s a coon conscious 10997382_10202538773150101_543190612581881789_nrapper for dating a light skinned woman.  Mind you, he’s been dating the same woman since he was in high school.  But I’m a little baffled why she thinks he should date a dark skinned woman, I figure he should be able to date any color woman he wants.  But whatever, it’s been talked about for the last few days very much on social media.  Here’s the quote from her page, she seems a little psycho if you ask me, but read her page and let me know what you think.

Immortal Technique Arrested Thursday

Probably one of the most dopest content rapper ever, Immortal Technique, was arrested and released on Thursday along with his tour manager, for 1319653746_immortal-techniqueassaulting and robbing a vendor selling t-shirts with his name and logo on them.  The vendor was selling the shirts outside of the Observatory in Santa Ana, California.  The vendor claimed he was beaten and robbed of his shirts, money and cell phone by several people from Immortal’s camp.  He is currently on tour with Talib Kweli, the tour will continue uninterrupted.  They even performed that night to avoid unruly crowds before he was arrested.  He that just goes to show, don’t mess with the old school Hip Hop artists.  You can probably get away with it from these new heads that’ll just try to sue you, but the old heads will jack you up and take what’s theirs.  I posted his vague Tweet he made regarding the issue.

Iggy Azalea Cannot Rap

2013IggyAzalea01PR11112013This is the worst travesty in rap music ever, I mean even Vanilla Ice rapped better than this back in the day, and he’s considered the worst rapper in the history of rap though.  When she finishes I can hear people cheering and pumping their fists, but I’m wondering what they’re cheering for.  We need better quality of music because apparently there’s a problem and people will like anything they throw on the radio nowadays.

Azealia Banks Playboy Spread

Azealia Banks gets a lot of love, definitely gets a lot of hate.  Say what you want about her, but she no doubt is fine.  She is cover girl for the March IMG_99242015 Playboy Magazine, I’ve done a short slide show of some of the pics Playboy allowed to circulate.  Recently Banks has been criticized, praised, loved and hated on for her music, controversy and opinions.  She was recently named fool of the week by Fox New’s (the biggest racist news team in the world) Eric Bolling.  He cites her recent comments about hating the US and wonders why she hates it so much if she’s making so much money.  I guess money isn’t everything Mr Bolling.  On the bright side, check out her spread below from Playboy and below, and below that on the not so bright side, the idiotic opinion of Eric Bolling from Fox News.
