LUPE FIASCO – “Bitch Bad” VIDEO! (I apologize for posting this late!!)

I love Lupe Fiasco for making this song. ‘Lupe takes on the dichotomy of how the word “bitch” and how it is used by society today.’ Lupe has always been a conscious and political rapper who has worked to persuade a culture to move away from negativity. It’s a sad day when guys like him don’t want to make rap music anymore. Lupe took to Twitter after beefing with some ignorant rappers (not gonna mention their lame names on my blog) and decided that his next album, ‘Food & Liquor 2: The Great American Rap Album’ will probably be his last because he don’t like the state that Hip Hop is currently in. With Lupe’s new single, “Bitch Bad”, he’s aiming at getting us to think twice about using the word. Personally, I have never believed the word ‘bitch’ to be a term of endearment. Good job Lupe. I hope you remain in the game.

NAS & SCARFACE Perform “Hip Hop” Live at Rock The Bells 2012 {Footage}

This weekend, Nas performed at the Rock The Bells tour in New Jersey. He surprised the audience when he brought out Texas rap legend, Scarface. Together, they performed, “Hip Hop” (off of DJ Khaled’s – King The Ring- album), for the time in Hip Hop history. Anything Nas does musically, is synonymous with true concept of Hip Hop and rap, so this live performance of this particular hit, will probably be the first of thousands. Especially with Scarface in the mix.
