Screen Shot 2020 09 19 at 9.29.28 AM

On this date in 2000, Dipset general Cam’ron released his second album Sports, Drugs And Entertainment on Untertainment Records, which was owned by his former manager Lance “Un” Rivera.

Originally titled The Rough, Rough, Rough Album, S.D.E. features appearances Destiny’s Child, Noreaga, Dutch & Spade, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Prodigy, Freekey Zeekey, Juelz Santana, and Jim Jones, which is the infantile stages of the Dipset movement.

Tracks like “What Means The World To You” and the title track produced by world famous Harlem DJ Ron G led the album to a great reception from Cam fans, but the commercial success was on hold until the Dipset revolution.

Salute to Harlem World vet Cam’ron, Untertainment and the rest of the crew that helped make this project a Hip-Hop classic!

Mase Says He Wants An Apology From Kanye West

v

Earlier this week Kanye demanded a public apology from Drake and J.Cole. We’re still unclear about his beef with Drake, but Ye’ probably wants an apology from Cole because of his 2016 track “False Prophets.” Now the tables have turned and Mase wants an apology from Kanye.

On Friday, Mase posted a message to Kanye on his Instagram regarding his recent fight against the music industry. “Much of what you are feeling has been expressed before. But when I was saying it, the same system and mindset that you are fighting against today, used you to shame me for leaving the very same system!” Mase wrote.

He then brought up a line from West’s 2010 song “Devil In A New Dress” featuring Rick Ross. West rapped “Don’t leave while you’re hot thats how Mase screwed up.”

In 1999, Mase changed careers and became a pastor to pursue “a calling from God.” He brought up how Kanye told him that shifting careers to become a pastor was a bad idea. Now that Kanye has is now a “born again Christian,” on a mission to spread the word of God, Mase wants an apology.

“I know today you may see it very differently so… You owe me (and my family) a public #apology and then some, if anyone owes you one,” Mase wrote. “For alluding to the fact that me following God at the height of my career was a bad decision.”

Cardi B Reveals Why She Filed For Divorce: ‘Sometimes People Really Do Grow Apart’

Cardi B Reportedly Lost Trust for Offset Leading to Divorce

Earlier this week it was revealed that Cardi B had filed for divorce from Offset. The news came as a surprise but many people speculated that the two were divorcing because of Offset’s infidelities. There were also rumors Offset was having a baby with another woman Cardi took to Instagram to address the rumors and shed some clarity on her reason for divorcing Offset.

Cardi reminded people that she is okay and that she has “not shed not one tear,” about her decision to divorce Offset. She goes on to say that her reason for divorcing Offset is not because of his infidelities.

“Every single time that this guy has been so crazy, so fucked up and it hits the media, I’m always crying, always sad because I don’t like that type of shit,” Cardi said. “This time, I wasn’t crying. You want to know why? The reason for my divorce is not because of none of that shit that ever happened before. It’s not because of cheating. I’m seeing people be like, ‘Oh, he has a baby on the way.’ That’s a whole fucking complete lie. That’s the second time people are trying to pin babies over here. No, that’s bullshit.”

Cardi further explains that her decision was because she got tired of arguing with Offset. The two got to a point where they never saw eye to eye. She also adds that she and Offset grew apart.

“I just got tired of fucking arguing. I got tired of not seeing things eye to eye. When you feel like it’s just not the same anymore, before you actually get cheated on, I’d rather just leave. Nothing crazy out of this world happened, sometimes people really do grow apart.”

MC Eiht Releases “Courted In” Video Featuring Dave East

unnamed 1 3

GEAH!!

For two decades MC Eiht has been one of hip-hop’s most recognizable voices in hip-hop; and undisputedly one of Compton’s finest originators and emcees.

A straight menace, MC Eiht burst onto the scene with Compton’s Most Wanted Music To Driveby.  Released just months after the LA Riots, Music To Driveby was a manifesto for the nihilism, frustration and anger that permeated the region and is universally hailed as a Gangsta Rap classic. Eiht’s follow up solo releases, We Come Strapped, was certified Gold and peaked at #1 on the Billboard charts and his sophomore solo project Death Threatz debuted at #3 on the Billboard Charts.

Kanye West Vows to Reunite Him and Jay-Z, Along with Puma and Adidas

JAY ZandKanyeWestReportedlyQuietlySettledTIDALLawsuit

Kanye West has set Twitter ablaze this week. It started with him Tweeting out his dislike for the music industry, calling it modern-day slavery. Then beginning a crusade to reform the music industry. Today, West touched a little bit more on his relationship with Jay-Z, saying that he wants to reunite the two.

It started with a repost from DJ Akademiks who shared that Jay-Z sold some of Kanye’s masters in order to get his own masters back. Kanye responded to the post saying:

“Don’t let the system pit us against each other … JAY IS MY BROTHER … I have eternal love for all artist that have been through and are still trapped this crooked system. Jay still doesn’t get his own masters back for ten years. I will see to it that we all get our masters.”

A couple of hours later Kanye took back to Twitter to say that he is the head of Adidas and that he will reunite Adidas and Puma and will reunite himself and Jay-Z. He then slammed Puma, calling their designs “embarrassingly trash,” and that he will personally design both Adidas and Puma.

For those that do not know, the founders of Adidas and Puma were brothers. Kanye has always called Jay-Z his big brother, so it makes sense he would compare their relationship to the Dassler brothers.

This is not the first time Kanye has wanted to mend him Hov’s relationship. During his bi-polar episode early last month, Kanye said that he misses Jay-Z when he posted a screenshot of their “Otis” performance at the 2011 MTV Music Video Awards.

Eve Explains Why Her Partying Antics May Have Led to the End of Her Hit Show

eve 2003 tv series 94475f6d faf8 4d17 abf9 56498f20979 resize 750

Take us back to the early 2000s when dance songs were just becoming a thing, when baggy clothes were hot and black sitcoms were in style.

Speaking of black sitcoms, Eve sits down with Uncensored to tell how she believes her parting ways could have played a part in why her hit show, “Eve” came to an end. “Having my own sitcom was everything… it was pressure, it was fun, it was stressful, it was amazing,”  she said. “I was the youngest at the time of the cast, and a lot of them were just getting married, just buying their first house or like, just having babies. I was still going to the club trying to get to set at 9:00 a.m. Trying to get to a table read, which was…don’t do that, ever.”

Eve then goes on to further explain how adjusting to being a television actress was hard for her, coming from the rap star lifestyle. “When the show ended, it was definitely heartbreaking because at that time. We had done three seasons and we were family at this point. “I do believe a lot of it had to do with the fact that I was trying to kinda straddle both sides of my life. Still trying to hold on to kinda hanging out. And I was late a lot. That’s not cool, she stated.”

 You know, I do think a lot of it had to do with my actions at that time, and I do think about it sometimes. When I look back on it, I’m like, wow. I don’t believe in regrets, but that is one time in my life where I feel like I wish I would have taken it a little more seriously than I did.”

Kanye West Clarifies Alleged Reports of Jay-Z Selling His Masters To Def Jam For Personal Gain

JAY ZDissesKanyeWestonMeekMill's'Championships'

The Kanye West music industry exposure campaign continues. Over the last week, the music and fashion mogul has uploaded all of his music contracts to Twitter. He has vowed to not release another form of musical art until he is released from his contract and/or owns his masters. Ye even went as far as uploading a video, where he urinates on one of his 21 Grammy Awards.

Following the upload of contracts, alleged news began to circulate that Def Jam former CEO and Roc Nation founder, Jay-Z sold Ye’s masters to Def Jam. In return Hov would get his own masters back after selling the masters to Kanye’s first six albums. The “Follow God” rapper is renowned for his illustrious catalog, especially his first six projects.

Kanye and Jay-Z’s relationship is well documented as brothers. Both have echoed that sentiment in this past, although the relationship has been rocky within recent years. Ye took to Twitter to clarify these reports in defense of his big brother.

“Don’t let the system pit us against each other … JAY IS MY BROTHER … I have eternal love for all artist that have been through and are still trapped this crooked system. Jay still doesn’t get his own masters back for ten years. I will see to it that we all get our masters.”

Yeezy continues his pursuit in this endeavor of owning his masters, while educating and encouraging more artist to do research in ownership. He recently target’s Bollere’s CEO Vincent Bollore. Bollere is the owner of the French media conglomerate, Vivendi. Vivendi owns 90% of Universal Music Group, where Def Jam and a number of labels operate as subsidiaries.

Tekashi 6ix9ine Contemplated Suicide While Behind Bars

Tekashi 6ix9ine's First-Week Album Sales Updates Predicts Another Drop

Tekashi 6ix9ine has been telling it all in his recent interviews. In an interview with The Shade Room, the rainbow-haired rapper explained detail to detail the events that took place between himself and his inner circle with the Nine Trey Bloods. He also explains why he broke the street code and cooperated with authorities aka, snitched.

While his decision to cooperate with authorities was in the public eye, 6ix9ine shares that the thought of suicide crossed his mind behind bars “I think people would have attempted suicide. At a point in jail I thought about it,” he stated. “It’s so much stress, so much pressure because you’re seeing yourself on the news every day, this that and a third, when is this going to come to an end?”

Tekashi explains that through all of this he feels that God has mentally built him to be strong. “Mentally, God has built me so strong. You know that saying, ‘What doesn’t kill you only makes you stronger?’ So basically I feel like I’m, not invincible, but I feel like I’m at the peak of my mental state, where I’m like, ‘I’ll be fine,’” 

While most of the industry is still deciding if the rapper is valid or not. 6ix9ine seems to be on a journey to greater mental health!
