Last night, the Queen of the World, BEYONCE, gave one of the best performances I’ve ever seen. Not to mention, SHE brought the mothers of police shooting victims Mike Brown, Trayvon Martin, Eric Garner and Oscar Grant to the red carpet. CBS News writes, “Brown, Martin, Garner and Grant are some of the most important names to catalyze the Black Lives Matters movement. Beyonce brought in the mothers of Brown, Martin and Garner to partake in her visual album, “Lemonade,” as well. They held photos of their late sons in the video. “

My entire life has been guided by the culture of HIP HOP. I’m admittedly a 90’s Hip Hop geek obsessed with all facets of the artform from the bass-infused drum patterns to the hardcore storytelling, lyricism and poetry. SO much so that I’ve have dedicated my life to the empowerment of Independent Artists of all genres in South Florida by developing a weekly showcase titled the HIP HOP ORGY.

I’ve been an Entertainment Reporter for over 15 years interviewing many legends in the industry including TUPAC when I was just a teen and ICE CUBE during his first movie filming for the the flick “Trespass”. Over the years, I’ve gathered numerous A-List celebrity connections and used these relationships to promote world famous Hip Hop parties all around the nation. Now I’ve honed in on the careers Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach County residential musicians with hopes to lend my hand in getting artists signed.

With so many accomplishments, I could brag all day long but I won’t. I don’t have to boast because one word from the God of Hip Hop, DJ KOOL HERC, made my entire year. Underneath a simple Hip Hop party flyer on my personal Instagram account (@lisafordblog everywhere), ONE WORD summed up my entire career and I basically can retire right now (but I won’t). DJ KOOL HERC, the Father of Hip Hop, the founder of a global culture, told me that what I was doing with the @HipHopOrgy was “KOOL ;)”.

You have to have big balls to be the self-proclaimed, “Trappa’s Favorite Cracka”, but South Florida Rapper, WHITE DUDE, holds up that sentiment with his deep knowledge of elemental Hip Hop and with his noticeably fire lyrics. Known for his versatility, WHITE DUDE combines ubiquitous concepts with unique word schemes reminiscent to the glory days of hip-hop yesteryear. His circuitous approach to generating great music yields fantastic results like his conscious hit single, “Everything Happens For a Reason”.

CHICAGO (CBS) — A community activist who was allowed to see videos from the fatal police shooting of Paul O’Neal before they were made public claimed they show an officer stomping the teen’s lifeless body after he was shot in the back.

Jedidiah Brown said he also heard police telling other officers to turn off their body cameras.

“I saw a police officer approach a lifeless O’Neal, face down to the ground, with three or four other officers over his body, screaming at him to put his hands behind his back, run up, stomp him in his back, and then grab his hands very violently, and put him in handcuffs, clearly lifeless,” he said.

CASH MARLEY of YCEMG found the perfect moment to drop his potent new single, “GET IT IN”, which is sure to be crowned the South’s HOTTEST new anthem. Marley’s banger introduces us all to new dimensions of dope Hip hop and will catapult him further into super stardom. The influential hip-hop rapper/producer’s music has two distinct sides: a uniformly strong rap side and a street side that is just as engaging and distinctive. When asked about what makes him tick, Cash Marley states, “I just wanna tell my story and help a ‪#‎hustla‬ get thru a day.”

Rozay added that he plans to release a new album before the end of 2016. ” (Pitchfork)

OBAMA

I’m hoping President Obama can establish an independent office of prosecutors to investigate police misconduct – it will eliminate the bad incentives that result in so many of these killers never being punished. Without consequences for the bad actors, these murders won’t end.
