Kendrick Lamar, Hip Hop's diamond, just dropped the iconic "Black Panther" soundtrack and I'm writing this blog post as I
Let's send a special shoutout to TDE artist, SCHOOLBOY Q, for taking part in assisting South Florida in restoring one of our treasured venues. The National Trust for Historic Preservation, in collaboration with Heineken USA and Indiegogo, conducted crowdfunding campaign to raise money to restore Miami Marine Stadium. The campaign, that aimed to begin restoration on the Virginia Key landmark, which has seen artists from the Beach Boys to Ray Charles, solicited SCHOOLBOY Q and ISAIAH RASHAD, to perform at the Fillmore Miami Beach last week September 29. Everyone in the audience donated to the cause and was able to attend one of the dopest Hip Hop shows ever.
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.
SCHOOLBOY Q is a great rapper, pure and simple and raw sh*t that don't melt. "They Reminisce Over You" Freestyle? ... He bodied that sh*t. Q's mixtapes are too underrated. I'm sure most hip hop heads have "Gangsta & Soul" downloaded in their collection already, but I'm posting now for those who don't. I love the beginning of the song "Dead Rappers" , taken from 2pac's movie "Juice". Q's been going hard for a long ass time. His music gets me through the day. This is real Hip-Hop.
Gettin' By is the first single off of Lloyd Banks long awaited mixtape "V6: The Gift". The projects features appearances by Fabolous, Schoolboy Q, Vado and more. Stream or download Lloyd Banks‘ V6: The Gift after the jump.
