Prior to his stint in jail, Surf was last seen introducing featherweight boxer and fellow Newark native, Shakur Stevenson. After his release, the order was business was to ink a publishing deal.

He has proven that he can sustain success in both battle rap as well as commercial rap with the release of the Newark follow-up Seven 25 earlier this year. The project featuring Beanie Sigel, Mozzy, Tokyo Jetz and more.

The most important question right now is will Tsu Surf step back in to team up with Tay Roc this weekend. Of course, Cakelyfe Chess won’t be happy about this seeming that he had to take Surf’s place after he went to jail. Many will be asking if Surf is even poised to battle after having less time to prepare than his opponents. Overall, battle rap fans want to see a show. Chess is ready to put on for the Bronx. The duo, known as Gunz N Cake will battle Loaded Hollows (Loaded Lux & Hollow Da Don).

Chess and Tay Roc have been going heavy on the promotion for the battle, leaving many on the edge of their seats in anticipation. If you’re heading down to Charlotte, NC for Summer Impact this weekend, make sure you have your umbrella. According to Chess, you can meet Gunz N Cake in the storm.

As for Tsu Surf, it’s best that he sits this one out. Either way fans will find out his decision sooner than later.

Linda Fairstein, Central Five Case Prosecutor, Resigns from Multiple Charity Boards

Linda Fairstein, the former Manhattan sex-crimes prosecutor who oversaw the prosecution of the “central park five” has announced her resignation from several charity boards in the wake of the explosive Netflix documentary, “When They See Us.”

Fairstein was in charge of the Manhattan Sex Crimes Unit when jogger Trisha Meili was found clinging to life following a rape and assault in Central Park over 30 years ago. Despite no physical evidence, Fairstein charged Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam and Kharey (now Korey) Wise with the crime. All were between the ages of 14 and 16 years old. The five were reportedly coerced into confessing using interrogation techniques that bordered on torture, according to the documentary and those familiar with the case. In 2002, Matias Reyes claimed responsibility for raping and beating Meili and the five were released after spending over half a decade behind bars.

The documentary has reinvigorated outrage against Fairstein, who was largely responsible for the trial. The backlash, which has sparked social media outrage (#CancelLindaFairstein) and calls for her publisher to discontinue her book, likely led to pressure for her to resign from the numerous charity boards on which she served.

Thus far, the charities that she has resigned from including Safe Horizon and God’s Love We Deliver; the Joyful Heart Foundation, as well as stepped down from her involvement with Vassar College’s charitable efforts and alumni programs.

In her resignation letter to Safe Harbor, she wrote the following:  “I know the terrible inequities of race, gender, and class that have been a tragically pervasive part of our American criminal justice system for centuries. I have dedicated my career, and my professional and personal passion, to fighting against injustice — and much of that fight has been conducted for and on behalf of the staff and directors at Safe Horizon.”

“When They See Us” is currently available for streaming on Netflix.

Jason Mitchell aka ‘Eazy E’ Dropped From ‘The Chi’ and Other Projects

Jason Mitchell is being dropped from his starring role on Showtime’s hit series, The Chi and upcoming projects.

It has been confirmed that the up and coming actor will not return for The Chi’s already announced third season.  Mitchell will also no longer be starring in the Netflix film Desperados, in which he was set to star opposite Nasim Pedrad, Anna Camp, and Robbie Amell. Furthermore, Mitchell is no longer repped by UTA or Authentic Talent and Literary Management.

None involved would comment on the reason for severing ties with Mitchell. Reportedly, he was involved in an off-set incident during production on Desperados, leading to his dismissal from that project and subsequently from The Chi.

Mitchell has been on the rise since his breakout role in the 2015 film Straight Outta Compton, where he played NWA member Eazy-E. Since then, Mitchell has starred in films such as Mudbound, Kong: Skull Island, and Detroit. He plays a leading role on The Chi, which was created by Lena Waithe. Waithe praised Mitchell at last year’s Television Critics Association winter press tour ahead of the Season 1 premiere, calling him “The Black Tom Hanks.”

On The Chi, Mitchell plays a young man striving to do better for himself, his girlfriend and his family. He dreams of opening his own restaurant one day and owns and operates a food truck. Brandon’s goals take flight after the death of his younger brother, Coogie, who is shot and killed on the streets of Chicago.

A rep at Good Universe confirmed his departure from the Netflix film, Deadline reported. They declined to comment further, however.

Deadline reported that Mitchell was also dropped by his management team at Authentic. UTA and Authentic both also confirmed that he was removed, but did not release statements.

Currently, no information about the misconduct has been revealed. Deadline reported that it happened away from the set. According to the outlet, Mitchell had previously been involved in inappropriate behavior on the set of The Chi, but the situation was resolved and production moved forward with him.

Is Logic The Newest Member of The Wu Tang? Clan Explains His Affiliation

Logic is one of the hottest emcees on the mic, right now. Hailing from Maryland, this bar-heavy lyricist rolls like he could be from one of the five boroughs. Staten Island in particular! Especially with his 2018 release of “Wu Tang Forever” featuring Wu Tang Clan, he seamlessly blends into his own unit within the 36 Chambers. With the track all you have to do is close your eyes, and you are transported to the 199os. W’s in the air flapping, mobbing the stage with a groove that could only can be described with the visual of a head nod and bounce. Could it be that Logic is just a mega fan that has appreciated the group since he was a toddler? Or is there an authentic connection between him and the group? After all on this song, he has Ghostface Killah, Raekwon, RZA, Method Man, Inspectah Deck, Cappadonna, Jackpot Scotty Wotty, U-God, Masta Killa and GZA all spitting on this blazing track.

According to Inspectah Deck the love is real. While doing an interview on WIRED with fellow Clan members U-God and Master Killa, he was asked “Is Logic was in The Clan?” The Bronx born Deck answered, “He might as well be. Logic is my little man. I like Logic. He used to be on the road with me back in the day touring. We did a couple of shows.”

Master Killa interrupts and says “Hell no, Logic is not in the Wu Tang. We got to split the pie again?”  After some chuckles from the Wu Brothers ensue, but Deck remains firm, “We already got 52 members, Logic come on in man… come on in.”

U God always one to take it to the streets, jokingly added that he “might have to get his chest caved in though.” Referencing an old school gang initiation that young men would go through to get down with a crew.

Everyone extended their love and perhaps the answer is just this… Logic is a unofficially Wu… Maybe in the tradition of Shyheim.

Shyheim dropped a record in 1994 entitled Shyheim AKA the Rugged Child, and affiliate of the Wu, he went on to make movies and star in TLC’s classic “Waterfalls” music video.

Logic’s star is on the rise, with or without the Wu stamp of approval.

In 2017, he won the MTV VMA for Best First Against the System video with his “Black Spider Man” and the BMI R&B/ Hip-Hop Award for Most Performed Songs with his hit “Sucker for Pain.” He has been nominated for a gang of other awards including a Grammy for Song of The Year with “1-800-273-8255.

Logic has one gold certified mixtape, two gold certified albums and one platinum certified album by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).

G-G-G-G Unit!

There always seems to be conflict with this Hip-Hop crew.  And 50 Cent seems to revel in being at the center of all the drama. We know that for a while now, that Young Buck and 50 Cent have bad a lot of bad energy towards each other. But this week things seem to have taken a turn for the “OH MY GOODNESS KEEP IT ON THE GRAM!”

According to the streets, 50 Cent and Buck are at it again because 50 brought up again, the allegations surrounding his former artist and friend being in a love affair with a transgender woman. Curtis Jackson never seems to let up. On his IG page, posted a remix to Buck’s 2004 joint “Shorty Wanna Ride” by the woman that supposedly is Buck’s undercover lover.

This ain’t new. The Nashville emcee and Jamaica’s Finest has been going back and forth since he was kicked out of the G-Unit crew in 2008. Over 10 years of beef was momentarily interrupted by a 2014 reconcilation for The Beauty of Independence EP. By 2015, they were back to beefing. Aside from the rumors about Buck’s involvement with a transgender woman,  this beef between he and Fif is affecting his paper. Fifty don’t care. Buck is currently signed to him and he is keeping him locked stock and barrel. Well… unless someone buys him out.

Fans may step up and do just that. Many supported have launched a GoFundMe account to help raise $300,000 to get Buck off 50’s G-Unit Record label.

Oh no… not a GoFundMe page! The King of Petty lent his hand to make this thing go viral… much like he helped Ja Rule fill seats for that concert a few months ago. 50 posted a link to his IG account so that folk can see just how much he cares.

Buck was not gonna just let 50 keep coming at him. He went on his profile and let shots ring out.

“Now….Curtis./Kanan/Boo Boo/ @50cent You Know Your Days Are Numbered!!!!” Young Buck writes in his caption for the photo, which features a shot of himself on the set of his “Skyscrapers” video.

50 answered with a post of his own.

R. Kelly Missed His Trial Because “HE COULD NOT READ!”

Everyone knew it. It is no secret that R&B’s Pied Piper probably never read the book from which he swiped the moniker from. Still, that did not stop him from not only using this classic german legend about the musician from Hamelin as a thumb-to-the-nose to all his haters in the early 2000s. It also did not stop him from writing hundreds of hit songs over the last 30 years for the “Who’s Who” in pop music.

But it did stop him from getting to court.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, a Cook County judge filed a default judgment on April 23rd against R. Kelly and his attorneys after they went MIA on a series of summonses regarding the current sex abuse lawsuits that have been swirling around the singer.

This is what happened. The law finally locked him up on unpaid child support in early March. According to the Cook County sheriff, while he was behind bars, he was served papers.

Kelly’s newest set of attorneys, Raed Shalabi and Zaid Abdallah, said in a filing dated April 26. “The defendant does not recall being served.” They further state, “The Defendant suffers from a learning disability that adversely affects his ability to read, in essence he cannot.”

These two attorneys said that it was his criminal defense attorney, Steve Greenberg, that actually “informed the Defendant of the default judgment.” Greenberg, himself, actually found out via the media. It was then, and only then, that Kelly sought to immediately retain counsel.

But see the left hand has no idea with the right hand is saying.

According to the Chicago Sun Times, Kelly’s own publicist Darrell Johnson told the outlet that the singer and his team were aware of the litigation, but it was not as urgent as other concerns.

“We don’t care about the lawsuit,” Johnson said then. “The lawsuit means nothing to us.”

This is the same publicist that thought it was a good idea for him to go interview with Gayle King.

In addition to this case in question, Kelly still owes money to his baby moms and is charged with 10 counts of criminal sexual abuse.

Kwamé Says That Hurby “Luv Bug” Slept On Rakim and Big Daddy Kane

Rapper, producer, label owner, concert promoter and Founder of The Alumni, Kwamé Holland is one of the hardest working rappers from the Golden Era. He is recently took a break from touring and producing hit records for R&B artists and made waves with a revelation about his former boss, Hurby “Luv Bug” Azor’s nose for sniffing out legends.

On The Soren Baker Show while talking about his career, he dropped a little gem the is sure to knock anyone who loved 80s Hip-Hop to the ground.

The first gem was about how his debut album, The Boy Genius, got made.

Though he grew up with Hurby Luv Bug, he was taking too long to produce a demo for the then teenaged Kwamé. Upon referral from a mutual friend, he went to a spot called The Music Building and cut his first joint. He produced a song entitled, “She’s Not Just Another Woman.” No one liked this song. He went back to the drawing board. The day was Christmas morning… and that’s how hit songs like “The Rhythm” and “The Mic is Mine” on that magical night. Six of the eight songs on that debut album was made in that 8 hour session. Kwamé shares the songs with Hurby and Sylvia Robinson (of Sugar Hill Records Fame). Hurby is not responding face enough, and so Robinson offers him a recording contract based off the demo. At the same time, his dad slipped the demo to Sony and they had an interest. This is exciting and upon returning back to Hurby, he finds out that the reason Hurby did not respond as quickly is because he was shopping it to a gang of labels and they were interested. Warner Bros., Atlantic and Epic records were presented by his neighborhood friend. He had a bidding war for the young gent. He wound up signing with another Sylvia… The Sylvia in the business… Sylvia Rhone.

The second gem is why he did not use vulgar language. Mostly for Kwamé, he never wanted to disrespect his Islamic faith or say/do something that would embarrass people that he cared about. He talks about his struggle to be authentic to who he saw himself, and what the crew wanted him to be. Just think about the polka-dots. He was 16, and had a few choice pieces to rock. He inter-swapped three pieces that he had, but some how created a movement. He could not spend money that he did not have.

The biggest gem that he dropped was about two of the dopest rappers of all time. Hurby apparently beat into his head that lyrical rappers would never work in Hip-Hop. The producer had his eyes on the bigger pie in the music industry, and was very much into making a cross-over rap record.

“He would say ‘Kane will never go anywhere. Rakim will never go anywhere. The people I was loving and the people I wanted to be on par with, he was just like it is not going to work. There are a million lyrical tough guys out here. You got to be ‘this,’ the light hearted high school kid that likes to have fun and chase girl.’”

But Kwamé again struggled to challenge his mentor. He understood in his heart that the artists who lasted forever focused more on artistry than gimmicks.

“On one end of the spectrum, you have Hurby saying ‘We got to go pop, we got to go pop’” Kwamé reflects. Then he continues “And then on the other end of the spectrum, I don’t want to be forgotten.”

Kwamé also gave props to people like Slick Rick, LL Cool J, KRS1 and Big Daddy Kane for not only being some of the top rappers of his time, but also for their production skills.
