“I’m up here to celebrate the life of a young man whose path I crossed a little over a year ago. I admired Doe because, as a young man at the age that he was, he always presented himself to be more mature.

It’s very rare that you could find somebody at the age of 20 or 21, and sit them down in front of somebody they aspire to be like, and they are as composed and poised and postured and looking eye to eye with this person. It’s very rare that you find somebody at the age of 20 or 21 and you could walk them into the room with a Nelly, or you could walk them into a room with a Timbaland or Jay Z, and they not lose their cool, they’re composed, postured, with the morals, standards, and the principles that were instilled in him from his family, his mom, his dad, grandmama, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles … I saw that in him day one, off top, and that is what drew me to him even more so beyond the music.

So I want everybody to know that, one thing I will never do, I will never let this hard man’s hard work go to waste. I’ll never let his work go to waste, I’ll never let his life be lived in vain.”” – T.I. (King of the South)

“Years of subpar Hip Hop has infected the brains of the masses. A Zombie-like plague has the city under siege…. “

50 CENT celebrates the new year by releasing a new freestyle, “This Is Murder Not Music”. His new joint is just a warning shot of what’s to come. The aggression in music was SPARKED by Fif 10yrs ago & its just recently returning in 2013/14. This content is MEAN. This hook is MEAN. This simplistic beat is MEAN. The sh*t talking is MEAN. 50’s sh*t talkin’ is unmatched cause we know its coming from a real place. His next album, “Animal Ambition: An Untamed Desire To Win,” drops soon.

2014 is already starting off great! The Hip Hop ruler, JAY Z, kicked off his first ‘Magna Carter World Tour’ show of the year on Thursday in, yes, you’ve guessed it, MIAMI! The concert included a live performance with Ricky Ross, the boss, for their collabs; “Devil Is a Lie” and “F*ckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt.” Backstage, Jay was joined by Diddy, French Montana, Meek Mill, DJ Khaled, and Yo Gotti. It was an epic event. Check it out…

‘Everyday Hell’ is real Hip Hop from a true Legend in the game, FREDRO STARR. It was produced by Audible Doctor, who’s been a BEAST on them beats, and recorded & released on Starr’s ‘Made In The Streets’ album.

Starr has done a tremendous job representing Southside Jamaica Queens aka the South Suicide. He announced that soon he will also be releasing a new project with his iconic east coast rap group, ONYX. I get goose bumps listening to this this song as Starr successfully marries a new wicked track with an old-school feel. Starr raps, “It sounds like this beat is motherf*ckin’ crying. What you know about pain?” WORD UP.

Pro Era’s CJ FLY gives you a tour around his hometown Brooklyn, New York on some jazzy Cookin Soul production. ‘Still The Motto’ has a sick ass beat that reminds you of that old-fashion hip hop. It one of those ‘good feelin’ songs that relaxes your mind, uplifts you, and takes you back to a time when you were carefree. CJ Fly tells you to puff on the weed but you don’t need to smoke weed when listening to this. It’s ‘Fly’ all on it’s own.

Nas and Busta are an explosive combination, on ‘Rough Around The Edges’. This ill song was suppose to be on Busta’s ‘The Big Bang’ album, but he said he had to choose between it and ‘Don’t Get Carried Away’ (“a better concert song”). Bad choice…’Rough Around The Edges’ is WAY better. The production on this is bananas! Hi-Tek is a vicious producer. And it’s tracks like these that are forever stamped in the fabric of Hip-Hop antiquity.

The DUCK DYNASTY family is expanding their empire by rolling out a new line of weapons to include nine Duck Commander shotguns, a semiautomatic pistol, and two semiautomatic rifles in conjunction with gun maker Mossberg. Mossberg has begun shipping some of the shotguns to distributors, according to spokeswoman Linda Powell. She declined to name specific retailers that will carry them.

His new single, “You Know”, is laced with a hardcore bass line and an undeniable energy, allowing YT TRIZ to leave his stamp on the Miami scene, which is now watched a lot closer by the rest of the Hip Hop world. He offers a solid delivery with charm and depth, leaving us anticipating what’s to come next. And the video combines an array of visuals throughout the city of Miami for a very real authentic flavor. Check it out…

Musicians garner inspiration from all over, including the places they’ve been, paintings & portraits they’ve seen, and sometimes from sounds & songs performed by other musicians. When I first heard Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love”, it seemed as if I heard it somewhere before. I was immediately drawn to the ballad with the haunting vocals and twisted bass line. Then it hit me…

It appeared that Beyonce’s inspiration for “Drunk In Love” could have came from this similar song by Keaira LaShae titled, “Drunk Love”. Watch both videos and you be the judge.

Cameron Diaz, Kate Upton & Leslie Mann get vengeful in ‘The Other Woman’. The film, also starring NICKI MINAJ, appears to be a rendition of ‘John Tucker Must Die’, but looks like it will be a funny movie all the same. Be sure to check out “The Other Woman”, in theaters on April 25, 2014.

I’m chillin’ on a Sunday evening, surfing the net, and I came across this video. I was really moved…

EliteDaily writes, “ABC News performed a little experiment at Denny Moe’s Superstar Barbershop for the hidden camera show “What Would You Do.” Utilizing three actors, the experiment was meant to show how average bystanders react to racism and verbal prejudice.

Two of the actors are portrayed in a relationship with the man being black and the woman white. As the white woman enters the barber shop, the third actor, Rachael, a black woman, immediately begins insulting her with outwardly racist comments.

After watching the video, it will be hard to deny that the results were more than inspiring. While some kept silent, there were three people in particular that spoke out against Rachael’s actions in their own way.”

This is what the world has been waiting for!! Drake Vs Kendrick Lamar Battle Rap On KOTD’s Battle League. This is so hilarious yet realisitic as f*ck! You’ll see other characters in the background such as Nicki Minaj, Birdman, Bow Wow, and Khaled on Drake’s side. And in King Kendrick’s corner, you’ll notice ASAP Rocky, The Game, Tyler The Creator, and even J. Cole standing behind the announcer.

This is an excellent presentation with the animated Drake sounding better than the real Drake. The verses Kendrick drops sound like exactly like lyrics he would say. This video makes you hunger for a REAL BATTLE now. Watch…
