A crowd favorite, rapper, ACTION BRONSON, graces us with visuals for his hit, ‘Actin Crazy’. FreeOnSmash writes, “After taking acid and losing his mind in the “Easy Rider” visual, Bronsolino becomes the star man in a green room for “Actin Crazy.” From flying through space to dodging sharks, there’s no holding back on the 40 and Omen-produced track. Mr Wonderful arrives March 24th.”

“Pam, I want to tell you about an epidemic that’s prevalent in Beverly Hills right now. It’s a buildup of cocaine residue around the cervix and in the vagina. You have it. Are you doing drugs? “No,” I said, astonished. “Well, it’s really dangerous,” he went on. “Is your partner putting cocaine on his penis […]

First I have to mention that Grand Puba’s “2000″ should go down in the rap history books as a sheer classic album. I stand by that statement and I don’t care what all the hip hop heads say lol. I’ve been debating Puba’s status as a ‘legend’ for years in social media platforms, so to present this video with him, the greatest of all time, PAC, and Treach, comes with great honor.

AmbrosiaForHeads writes, “Back in 1992, before the East Coast/West Coast beef was in full effect, Treach, Tupac and Grand Puba found themselves together backstage and decided to have an impromptu cipher. The moment was caught on tape and has made the rounds over the years, but it’s still amazing to see the three legendary MCs together rhyming just for the sport of it. Each MC flows with aggression, a cappella. Check it out.”

Rick Ross’ album “Hood Billionaire” is a great concept that demonstrates you can achieve anything no matter what walk of life you come from. Speaking as a music blogger stationed in Miami, Ross’ sound truly represents our flavor down here as everyday we have to hustle hard to stay afloat in a wild wild west-like city. “Wuzzup” is off of the the ‘Hood Billionaire’ album blowing hard with that gritty beat The Bawse is known for. The music video is directed by Latch Lab featuring vintage black and white visuals.

before the beast

YEAH BOY!!!!! YOUNG BUCK is back with that fire!!! As far as I’m concerned, the game is complete now that Buck dropped this dope ass mixtape. ‘Before The Beast’ is a prelude to Young Buck ‘s upcoming G-Unit EP, “The Beast Is G-Unit”. The mixtape features Lloyd Banks, Yo Gotti, Lil Reese, Cap 1, Trae Tha Truth, Lil Boosie, Tony Yayo and Kidd Kidd, with production by BandPlay, Drumma Boy, Tru Wealth of Drum Squad, Sonny Digital and Doe Pesci. My favorite track is “Pull Up”.

“CyHi The Prynce is back with his new mixtape Black Hystori Project 2: N.A.A.C.P. (New Artists Aligning Cultural People), this installment features 11 tracks from CyHi.”

This badass story is titled, “Shortcuts” by GettinSpooky from the CreepyPasta series on Youtube. The chanting music you hear in the background is sick, haunting, and hypnotic. And the amazingly perfect voice reading the story is clear and convincing, adding a frightening dimensional element to the total piece. ‘Shortcuts’ creeps me out so much, I can’t listen to it at night. I listen to it over and over again in broad daylight where there’s lots of people around. I’m a total fan of the Creepypasta Community. And if you’re not already, you should be too.

Congrats KENDRICK LAMAR for winning two Grammy for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance! Well deserved. Some people are saying that his fresh new track, “The Blacker The Berry”, is about Kendrick calling out hypocrisy of black people. Others are saying it was about calling out white racism…hmmm you be the judge.

Chris Brown’s club track, “Bitches N Marijuana”, is off of his upcoming “Fan of a Fan” album.

My favorite TV show of ALL time is on it’s way back to HBO, and I couldn’t be happier! IMAX has been screening the last two episodes from season four, along with a sneak peek at season 5 (the video is included in this blog post). In the upcoming season, we ‘find out what happens to Tyrion Lannister, where Jon Snow ends up next and how Margaery Tyrell shakes up the kingdom after the death of Tywin Lannister.’ If you haven’t been tuning in, you’ve been missing out on a well written and well produced show based on an award-winning series of high-fantasy novels by George R. R. Martin. Check it out.

T.I.-Paperwork

T.I., the King of the South, delivers once again. “G Shit” is produced by Pharrell off of T.I.’s “Paperwork” album and this delicious short film was directed by Chris Robinson. What’s amazing about this video is that it simply has a concept. A Youtuber wrote, “Now if they all would get back to videos having concepts and sh*t instead of random ass shaking standing in front of a colored back drop or in a club. I loved this one. The video made me actually like it more then I initially did.” Check it out.

run the jewels 3

The dynamic duo, Killer Mike and El-P aka RUN THE JEWELS, dropped their official video for their latest HIT “Lie, Cheat, Steal”. The critically acclaimed, “Run The Jewels 2″ is in stores now.

badass 2

Joey Bada$$ dropped his new album, “B4.Da.$$” this week and the hip hop world couldn’t be more happier. The record came out on January 20, 2015 (his 20th birthday) via Cinematic Music Group / Pro Era.

The Boston Globe writes, “Listening to this remarkably assured and versatile debut, it’s hard to believe that Brooklyn, N.Y., native Joey Bada$$ is a mere 19. Possessing skills far beyond his years, the rapper makes a leap from his mixtapes with verses evoking many of the New York MCs who preceded him, while establishing a compelling, unique voice. Despite his gimmicky moniker, this is real-deal hip-hop, antithetical to the numbskull bottle-and-booty clap rap clogging the mainstream.”

ne-yo

NE-YO’s new album, “Non Fiction” is set to be released January 27th. The tracklisting is included in this blog post. In the meantime, check out his new single, “One More, off the forthcoming album featuring the King of the South, T.I.

Groups like RUN THE JEWELS are the reason why Hip Hop is so influential from the States to around the globe. A worldwide audience can not deny the high-quality artistry created by rap legends and duo, KILLER MIKE & El-P. During his introduction of Run The Jewels on his show last night, Conan O’Brien described their latest album, “Run The Jewels 2″, as “one of the most critically acclaimed releases of 2014.” “Lie, Cheat, Steal” is just one of the diamonds on the album, I’ve also included my favorite, “Blockbuster Nights”.
