Just like the album, and the song, the concept of the video is extremely creative. The message of the song is to be careful on who you give your love to. ‘Poetic Justice’ is off of Kendrick Lamar’s critically acclaimed album, ‘Good Kid, M.a.a.d City.’
Lend your ears to this list of epic hip hop instrumentals, which is in no particular order. Of course, there are way too many to name in one post, as the genre of hip hop music is filled with numerous legends. Featured in this list are Nas, MF Doom, Biggie, Common, J Dilla, 9th Wonder, just to name a few. So I guess I will make this part of a series. The next list will more than likely include tracks from Madlib, Khrysis, and Preemo,
For those of you who know this blog, Tupac is always alive and well on here. He is the inspiration behind why I’m even in the entertainment business. Tupac is my muse and my favorite rapper of all time. I’m posting this classic throwback video for his fans and for those who haven’t had the pleasure of seeing Pac perform live. “So Many Tears” is the iconic single off of 2Pac’s legendary album, “Me Against The World”.

Sway: Did you think you would make it this far as an artist?
NAS: “I got to be honest, back then (when Nas recorded ‘Illmatic’), dudes wasn’t making it this far. So I didn’t know how to look that far. So I didn’t about it.
Sway: Your song, “Daughters” has been nominated twice. Is YOUR daughter happy about that?

This video is a must-see! An aggravated Native American is walking by an Anti-immigration protest in Arizona and immediately becomes annoyed with what he sees. He then begins to slam and shut down the protestors, schooling them as to who the REAL immigrants are. The Native American shouts, “We should have put that sign up when you son of the b*tches came!”
Uncle Luke, the man who was instrumental in bringing Miami Hip Hop to the forefront of the music industry, took some time to lend some advice to the Bawse, Rick Ross, regarding his recent assassination attempt. Luther Campbell, community leader and former shock rapper, spelled out some of the effects of being involved in rap beef and how it came be damaging to one’s career.

Rick Ross has yet to respond publicly to the recent attempt on his life. Hopefully all will be resolved soon… Read Luke’s letter…
