  3. The 2011 BET Hip-Hop Awards happened last night but nobody cared. Rappers, chains and shoutouts pretty much sum up what we can assume happened without even putting ourselves through the [...]

  8. Dam-Funk went diggin’ in the crates for “Step Into My Zone.” To be more accurate, he found the song – originally recorded in 2006 – in “a black milk crate [...]
  9. Mac’s Road To A Million fans is almost done as he’s now eclipsed 900K. How do you celebrate having nearly a million people following your ever online move? You drop a track named after a pimp, that’s what. Keep space age pimpin’, young Macintosh. Mac Miller – “Willie Dynamite”
  10. Rihanna something something something Sao Paulo, Brazil. There are nights and some days where I pray the LOUD tour never ever ends. Even though we attempt to show restraint, recap photos from Ri Ri’s shows don’t get old and we don’t mind indulging one bit. *Tap tap, pull*

  12. Long before Dallas handed the Jets their first win of the season on a silver platter, my first loss of the weekend came approximately 72 hours earlier upon hearing Kevin Hart’s Laugh At My Pain would only be released in limited theaters. And of course, not a single one was in driving distance from yours truly. Despite limited access, the filmed tallied impressive numbers. Two million dollars in 97 theaters were the figures meaning LAMP did $20,619 per screen. It doesn’t stop there for Hart. These stats place Kevin in elite company. Not since Martin Lawrence’s Runteldat in 2002 has a concert series seen success like this and the first film since Chicago to debut with over $2M. Much of Hart’s rise to present day super-comedian status has been credited to personal brand marketing via outlets like Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and more. For those inquiring, the film will expand to an additional 58 theaters this Friday. He’s also making headlines on the DVD front. Check him out in 35 and Ticking, available now.
  13. “Rock-a-bye, baby, rock-a-bye” Harlem World’s 1999 album The Movement was split between tracks that reflected the polarizing times. For every glittery track on the album, cross-wise there stood a bloody, gutter-dwelling antagonist like “100 Shiesty’s” and the vis-á-vis booth battle of “Pointing Fingers.” Meano’s verses on the album had me believing in dude something awful, word to David D. swearing by rappers. Harlem World – “Pointing Fingers”
  14. L.A. Weekly: Bruce Hornsby has been a household name for 25 years. But in hip-hop he’s known for providing the sample tune of Tupac’s most popular song, “Changes,” which was culled from Hornby’s breakout hit, “The Way It Is.” On the heels of Hornsby’s new live album Bride Of The Noisemakers , the Virginia native and devoted Christian Scientist tells us about how “Changes” came to be, his impressions of ‘Pac, and a crazy story involving a former Virginia senator. Did you ever get to meet Tupac? No, I never did. As you know, of course, he recorded his version of my song, which I think was his biggest hit. A year after he was assassinated I got a cassette in the mail from the Shakur Foundation, saying “We found this song, it’s going to be the single on his Greatest Hits album coming out.” The original ["Changes"] was a lot dirtier, had a lot of the n-word. They took that out for the single. I didn’t request it; it’s their creation, it wasn’t my place to say anything. Did you like the song? I really liked it. Lots of rappers have used “The Way It Is:” Wyclef, E-40, Snoop. I loved what [Tupac] did with it. I just said, “Go go go.” Read the full story at L.A. Weekly.
