No Place For Hate: New Age Hate Group Proud Boys Banned By Facebook

Facebook Bans The Proud Boys

Source: Andrew Lichtenstein / Getty

Looks like Facebook is finally getting with the program and letting hate groups know that its platform is no place for racist rhetoric and behavior. The company took a bold step and is banning accounts associated with the far-right extremist group the Proud Boys.

The group founded by Vice founder Gavin McInnes is no longer welcomed on either Facebook and Instagram the social media giant confirmed to TechCrunch. The decision came down when The Proud Boys were linked to a violent incident that took place in New York earlier in the month. Five members connected to the group were arrested after attacking protesters.

That incident was enough for Facebook to now consider the Proud Boys a hate group making the decision to boot the group from its platforms an easy one. The group describes its members as “Western Chauvenists,” heavily relies on social media to get its message out and they were already banned from Twitter. This latest decision pretty much stymies the Proud Boys large electric dog whistle.

Per Facebook:

“Our team continues to study trends in organized hate and hate speech and works with partners to better understand hate organizations as they evolve,” Facebook said in a statement. “We ban these organizations and individuals from our platforms and also remove all praise and support when we become aware of it. We will continue to review content, Pages, and people that violate our policies, take action against hate speech and hate organizations to help keep our community safe.”

We just hope Facebook continues to keep this energy going cause they have a lot to work to do with cleaning up the social media network.

Curren$y, Freddie Gibbs & Alchemist Are Money. Stream The Fetti Project (Audio)

In the Spring of 2015, <em>Grand Theft Auto V</em> was released for Microsoft Windows. It was a couple of years after the video game had initially hit consoles. So, to hype the release, Rockstar introduced new in-game features and commissioned Alchemist and Oh No (who had already formed Gangrene at the time) to put together a compilation for a new radio station. The well-received project was titled <a href="https://open.spotify.com/album/4Nd1a0kQJF7IZl5queVCJ0?si=9zk7c-mkQ7uujTcWT6dRyA" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Welcome To Los Santos</em></a>, but in the game, it is <em>The Lab channel</em>. One of the highlights on the album was <a href="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kGNHmNFUxfk" target="_blank" rel="noopener">“Fetti,”</a> the pairing of the Jet Life pilot and ESGN’s Freddie Gibbs. Al and Oh No provide a silky-smooth Funk track that brings the "Iceberg Slim" out of Spitta and Gibbs. As good as the track was, fans did not think a full project was a possibility.

However, when Spitta, Gangsta Gibbs, and Alan The Chemist all started hyping a <a href="https://open.spotify.com/album/3JgtFZroTUGoklTtb2xOne?si=wNz5IHPeQ1yBcnbLqkizYQ" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>Fetti</em></a> project on their socials, Heads were understandably excited. In one post, Andretti informed Gangsta Gibbs that he had laid all his verses and it was now on the Gary, Indiana to sew the album up. If it’s not clear, the album title is a portmanteau of these two MCs’ names, Freddie + Spitta Andretti = <em>Fetti</em>. To take the concept to the next level, the album artwork is all inspired by Fendi’s logo and trademark colors.
<div class="video container embed"><iframe src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/videoseries?list=PLkB3rO0gVydmVgIiw-kuLJgM5CX5KmLZG&amp;ecver=1" width="730" height="411" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen="allowfullscreen"></iframe></div>
<a href="https://ambrosiaforheads.com/2018/09/freddie-gibbs-nick-grant-iamnobodi-audio/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Freddie Gibbs &amp; Nick Grant Team Up On A Track That’s R&amp;B But Gangsta (Audio)</a>

Even from the titles of the nine songs that make up <em>Fetti</em>, you can tell this is player music. Example: "Now &amp; Later Gators." The duo sound like a parallel universe 8Ball &amp; MJG, or even <em>Aquemini</em> zodiac disciples. ALC cooks up an assortment of flavors for this twosome, but all the cuts gel well. In fact, there are no pauses between tracks, they all connect end-to-end. An ATM sound-effect is the segue between “Location Remote” and “The Blow,” while stormy weather bridges “Now &amp; Later Gators” and “No Window Tints.” This album was made to be listened to all the way through.

Regardless, there are some standout joints like the booger sugar anthem “The Blow” and the dark Gibbs solo, “Willie Lloyd.” On the latter song Freddie serves up an intense, “no breaths” flow and it’s vicious. Spitta gets a track all to himself as well titled “No Window Tints,” and it should tide over those fiending for new Al x Andretti since 2016’s <a href="https://ambrosiaforheads.com/2016/02/curreny-alchemist-re-up-on-a-new-mixtape-featuring-action-bronson-styles-p/" target="_blank" rel="noopener"><em>The Carrollton Heist</em></a> LP and the “Fat Albert” Craft Single.

Freddie Gibbs is presently featured on <a href="https://open.spotify.com/user/ambrosiaforheads/playlist/1Ssx21OFFRNJMMvlG2xeWV?si=mcvQmXJQRPWrG3AuLYDe3Q" target="_blank" rel="noopener">the official <em>Ambrosia For Heads</em> playlist</a>.

Jermaine Dupri on Celebs Boycotting the NFL: ‘Boycotts and marches don’t seem like they work’

By: Leslie Monét

Super Bowl LIII is slated to take place in Atlanta, Georgia, the first time since 2000, and the area’s hometown Hip-Hop icon Jermaine Dupri have become vocal on his alternative perspective on celebrities choosing to boycott the NFL.

Recently a source reported to US Weekly that Rihanna declined the offer to headline the halftime show because she “supports Colin Kaepernick”. Additionally, Rihanna’s label president Jay-Z spoke out on with wifey Beyoncé on the summer’s hit record Apes**t, spitting “I said no to the Super Bowl, you need me I don’t need you. Every night we in the end zone tell the NFL we in stadiums too.”

With the energy of opposition at its peak in entertainment, Dupri’s haphazard move to partner with the NFL and produce a week-long concert series leading into Feb. 3rd, 2019, was all he wrote.  In an interview with TMZ, Dupri said “Boycotts and marches don’t seem like they work to me, I’m sorry. I think they should send a message while they’re onstage, take advantage of your platform.” He goes on to add, “The more people speak on it, the more they talk about it, then the more people feel like it’s something they have to address. I feel like people ignore boycotts.”

Recently coming off of a SoSoDef Reunion Tour, Dupri plainly demonstrates the momentum of his hustle mentality. To clear the air he let it be known that it’s totally cool NOT to do the Super Bowl in protest as well but makes it clear that further conversation does more good than ignoring it.

Hip-Hop’s Hidden Horror: ‘Da Hip Hop Witch’

Everyone loves a good urban legend and there’s no better time for urban legends than Halloween. Yesterday at The Source, several of us writers were gathered around brainstorming stories for Halloween. We started with the obvious- scary movies. Now, while horror movies have never been known for their high cinematic standards, studio executives have spent millions of dollars trying to make them more appealing. While most resort to the tactic of better special effects or even more gore, occasionally an out-of-the-box thinker gets it in his or her head to cast a big name.

Where most serious actors shy away from the horror/scary movie genre,  some Hip-Hop artists have stepped up to the plate, swung, and…definitely missed. Sure, there were the obvious contenders: LL Cool J in H20, Trey Songz in Texas Chainsaw Massacre (giving whole new meaning to “make them say ah”), Busta Rhymes in Halloween: Resurrection, Rah Digga in ‘Thir13en Ghosts (ok, that one was actually good), Ice-T in Leprechaun, and probably even more that we forgot about.

But it was an accident that led us to the urban legend of Da Hip Hop Witch.

While researching exactly which horror movie(s) Ja Rule appeared in, we stumbled upon Da Hip Hop Witch, a 2000 horror movie that, despite featuring major talent such as Ja Rule, Eminem, Mobb Deep, Vanilla Ice, Royce da 5’9’, Charlie Baltimore, Pras, Vitamin C, Benzino, and a few others, remained buried like a haunted artifact deep below the earth’s surface.

With an all-star lineup and a trailer tagline of “You can take the witch out of the wood, but you can’t take the witch out of the hood,” the only question is: how has mainstream America never heard of this cinematic masterpiece?

Well, Eminem’s people tried to bury it, for one.

Yet despite a blurry trailer on IMDB, there was almost no proof that this movie ever actually existed. Did it exist? Why wasn’t it available on Amazon, iTunes, Google Play, Hulu, or Netflix?

Wait, do any of us really exist?

Based on the sparse and often vague recycled reports on the Internet, the possibility that such a movie ever existed began to dwindle.

It had become our Halloween urban legend.

Until we found it (don’t ask how) and realized that this wasn’t just any urban legend, it was our urban legend. That’s right, 18 years ago, The Source may have played a significant role in this obscure film, leaving nothing but a small trail of breadcrumbs for the next generation of writers to follow. Which we did with enthusiasm.

The premise of the movie is simple: A witch is terrorizing Hip-Hop artists. But she isn’t a normal witch, she’s a “cool witch.” Instead of the traditional green skin and warts, she’s allegedly “thick” with “a fat ass” and “big ol’ titties.”

To quote one of the film’s aspiring thespians, “the witch got a big ass. I’d fuck the witch.”

The movie, likely written by someone on bath salts, is a half-assed attempt to parody The Blair Witch Project. It opens up with Ja Rule (in all of his 2000 glory days’ prime) advising people to “stay away from the hairy witch bitch.”

How was this not nominated for an Oscar?

The picture’s extremely loose plotline focuses on three key groups of people: the writers at the still-unnamed Hip-Hop magazine (which, if several Yahoo users are to believed, is supposed to be The Source), the montage of early 2000’s rappers, and five white kids with a pug (aptly named “Pug”) from Salem, Massachusetts (where witches are all evidently from). Shaky camera shots, Motorola brick phones, late 90’s computers, dial-up internet, and fax machines also play strong supporting roles in the movie.

Following the credits, a group of aspiring artists are in producer Mr. Z’s studio. They’re talking about how to become “as big as Ricky Martin” and the subject of the Hip-Hop witch comes up. Apparently she “puts her finger up people’s butt.” Yet despite this unwanted anal assault, every artist who has been attacked by the Hip-Hop witch sees an increase in record sales.

Seriously, who wrote this?

Cut to a young Eminem in a button-down plaid shirt straight from the Gap’s summer 1999 line and wait for it…wait for it…a dog tag. After being assaulted by the witch, he’s holed up in his studio with fellow rappers. Meanwhile, new writer DeeDee is trying to make a name for herself by proving that the urban legend of the Hip-Hop witch is true. She does a lot of faxing to accomplish this.

After a reward of $10 million is offered for the witch, the five white kids and Pug decide that being from Salem, they have what it takes to find the witch. In true stereotypical fashion, one white guy has dreads, one always wears sunglasses, and one girl has pink hair. The dreads guide the group.

I can’t make this up.

Cut to more shaky camera shots of rappers in the studio talking about the Hip-Hop witch. However, it should be noticed that the Hip-Hop witch is an equal opportunity witch. She doesn’t just target men. She also attacked pop artist Vitamin C, probably for making that stupid graduation song.

Back at the office, in between beeps from the fax machine, DeeDee tells her editor that she has the “hot story” about the Hip-Hop witch that could be big news for the magazine. The editor deflects by awkwardly throwing shade at Billboard magazine and tells DeeDee to get back to work faxing things.

About halfway through, The Source makes an appearance as the five kids and Pug from Salem are doing their research, using the magazine, and realize that the “witch” has been only targeting Mr. Z’s artists, leading them to believe that (plot twist) there is no witch.

While doing her serious investigative journalism, DeeDee is faxing things and the company CEO comes in and tells her she has a nice ass. This has zero bearing on the plot whatsoever, but it lends itself to the movie’s overarching theme of “nice asses.”

Also, how much stuff did people fax in 2000?

More shaky cam shots and rapper cameos ensue. The pug makes an appearance in a stolen car. The artists continue to sit in the studio, make beats, and talk about how hot the witch is. The witch steals Big Rock’s car. No further explanation is given.

Eminem is still holed up inside his studio and still talking about how the witch put a finger up his butt. And he sort of liked it. Vanilla Ice, donning a late 90’s ball chain necklace, describes the witch as “a naked chick” with “something scary about her.” Then he resumes getting a tattoo.

Because who doesn’t get interviewed in a tattoo parlor?

The five white kids go to Mr. Z and tell him that there is no witch. He lines them up like he’s going to kill them but then tells them to run. In what can only be described as a Halloween night supernatural event, five white kids from the suburbs outrun Mr. Z’s entire crew. Just as the action is starting to wane, Mobb Deep is abducted in a Blair Witch-project montage. All we see is on the screen is blackness. All we hear is screams and a dog growling. You do not mess with Pug, apparently.

Mr. Z and his crew exchange money with the Street Don who has promised to put them on his magazine in exchange for record sales. Or something like that. That part of the plotline is never made clear.

Eminem is still talking about the witch putting a finger up his butt.

After about 20 more minutes of incoherent, shaky camera shots, Royce da 5’9’ offers an explanation as to why the witch is probably putting her fingers up Hip-Hop artists’ butts. “Probably because we be mooning people all the time,” he suggests.

Makes sense if you think about it.

Meanwhile, Pras found a solution to warding off the witch: a cell phone and a candle. No further explanation is given. Also, Eminem’s arm somehow ended up in the witch’s butt. No further explanation is given. DeeDee with the nice butt is still trying to prove the urban legend of the Hip-Hop witch is true.

The movie ends with a bunch of camera shots and the Hip-Hop witch’s identity is revealed. Spoiler alert. It’s Vanilla Ice.

While DeeDee was never able to prove her urban legend true (apparently she was eaten by Vanilla Ice as he screamed “Ice, Ice, Baby” incoherently into the camera), we can assure you that Da Hip Hop Witch does indeed exist. Just don’t say her name three times in the dark or you can guess what happens.

Ask Eminem.
