Screen Shot 2020 09 16 at 11.53.50 AM

Kanye West continued his Twitter rant today after a tumultuous social media weekend, demanding an apology from J. Cole, Drake, and Kendrick and even comparing himself to famed slavery abolitionist Harriet Ross Tubman.

In today’s continuum, Ye insists that white media corporations set agendas to take down Black male celebrities such as Michael Jackson and Bill Cosby. The cultural icon also suggested that a Black-owned media company would and could never take down a white celebrity in the same fashion.

Yeezy continued on in this morning’s rant about artists owning their masters, adding his daughter will “do nothing but put emojis up for the rest of her life” because he owns his masters and his children will inherit them.

Screen Shot 2020 09 11 at 1.06.37 AM

After his very public refusal to interview Tekashi 6ix9ine, Gillie Da Kid and his cohort Wallo267 from his Million Dollaz Worth Of Game podcast made a special appearance on N.O.R.E.’s Drink Champs, which arguably is one of their funniest shows ever.

During their interview with Noreaga and DJ EFN, Wallo and Gillie revealed what they were doing in the streets of Philly before developing into lucrative businessmen.

It was so funny, N.O.R.E. posted the clip below of Gillie and Wallo’s response.

Urban Legends Drop Second Episode Of ‘Get Down, The Influence of James Brown’ Mini-Documentary

Screen Shot 2020 09 10 at 5.15.18 PM

Urban Legendsa division of UMe, Universal Music Group’s global catalog company, is continuing to spotlight one of the greatest artists of all-time, “The Godfather of Soul” James Brown, with the second installment of the animated mini-series Get Down, The Influence of James Brown.
 
On September 14, 2020, James Brown’s official YouTube Channel will unveil Funky President, episode two of the new three-part series, following the first episode, Funky Drummer, released on July 10th. Narrated by Questlove (The Roots, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon), and featuring Lord Finesse and Co-founder/former EIC of Wax Poetics Magazine, Andre Torres, the three-part series was created by UMe along with Dreambear and explores the sonic DNA of James Brown whose music is continually sampled and whose trademark vocal phrasing is deeply woven into the fabric of Hip-Hop.
 
This second episode explores the fascinating and unpredictable politics of James Brown while following the influence of his second-most sampled track of all time, “Funky President (People It’s Bad).” Touching on the civil rights movement and Brown’s seminal “Say It Loud – I’m Black and I’m Proud,” Funky President shows how James Brown, as well as his musical peers and successors, has been able to encourage social change and raise political concern from a black American perspective. 
 
The full episode of Funky President premieres on September 14, 2020, and can be viewed here with part three (The Payback) coming later this year.

“I’m incredibly proud of Red Table Talk and thrilled to build upon this franchise with my family and with Gloria, Emily, and Lili,” said Pinkett Smith in a statement obtained by the outlet. 

Red Table Talk has created a space to have open, honest and healing conversations around social and topical issues, and what’s most powerful for me is hearing people’s stories and engaging with our fans in such a tangible way on the Facebook Watch platform. I’m excited to see the Estefans put their spin on the franchise and take it to new places.”

“I’m incredibly excited to carry the Red Table Talk torch with my family in Miami,” Estefan said in her own statement. “Jada and I have spoken about this a lot and feel my daughter, niece and I can tackle issues important to us and our fans with a new and fresh voice.

Eve Reveals She Was ‘Devastated’ After Dr. Dre Dropped Her for Eminem

Eve Reveals She Was Devastated After Dr. Dre Dropped Her for Eminem

The Ruff Ryders Chronicles is giving Hip Hop fans a behind-the-scenes view at one of the Hip-Hop’s most underrated rap groups, including the come up of their First Lady, Eve.

The “Who’s That Girl” rapper was a former stripper in Philadelphia and was blessed with a chance to fly to Los Angeles to record a demo, and the tape ended up in Dr. Dre’s radar, and the rest is history.

Eve inked a deal with the Aftermath Records but apparently the rapptress’ working relationship with the West Coast legend came to an abrupt end with no warning. “I would literally show up to studio sessions that I wasn’t supposed to be at where I knew Dre was gonna be and be like, ‘So, when am I recording? When are you gonna put me in a song? What’s going on?’ I think he got sick of that and then I got dropped eight months later… I was devastated.”

Eve went back to her mother’s home disappointed but what she didn’t know was that her manager was handling a deal with Ruff Ryders. Everything worked out and the connection with the New York Group ended up lighting up Eve’s career on fire, eventually leading the rapper to win her first Grammy Award, which marked the first Grammy for the group.

Can you imagine the Ruff Ryders without the pitbull in a skirt? We surely cant.

[WATCH] Tekashi 6ix9ine Sits Down For First Interview With FOX 5 News’ Lisa Evers

Screen Shot 2020 09 10 at 2.35.06 AM

If the streets, don’t want to talk to you, you can almost always cross over.

After getting turned down by Philly legend Gillie Da King, controversial Brooklyn rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine decided that it was time to turn to prime time news to tell the story everyone wants to hear.

In his very first interview with the press since his release from prison on federal racketeering, drug and gun charges, 6ix9ine sits down with FOX 5 news’ own Lisa Evers to discuss everything from his highly publicized fed case to his new album Tattletales, which was just released September 4.

6ix9ine, whose real name is Damiel Hernandez, talked about why he snitched on his former cohorts, the Nine Trey Blood gang, what life was like while in prison and how difficult it was to deal with the pressure of public opinion. “The pressure is so strong, that mentally, I think people would’ve attempted suicide because at a point in jail, I thought about it”, said 6ix9ine.

See the interview below.
