JAY-Z and Meek Mill’s REFORM Alliance Sends Nearly 100,000 Surgical Masks to Jails and Prisons

The REFORM alliance, the criminal justice reform organization led by JAY-Z and Meek Mill, is sending nearly 100,000 surgical masks to correctional facilities across the United States. Those included are the Mississippi State Penitentiary at Parchman, a facility that is apart of the lawsuit from Hov, Yo Gotti and Team Roc against the Mississippi Department of Corrections.

Additional facilities to receive masks will be the Rikers Island complex in New York City and more in effort to assist correctional officers, health care workers and inmates as COVID-19 continues to spread.

In the announcement, 40,000 masks will be sent to the Tennessee Department of Corrections, 5,000 masks to Parchman and 50,000 to Rikers, and another 2,500 to a Rikers medical facility.

“It’s a very vulnerable population,” Jessica Jackson, the chief advocacy officer at REFORM said CBS News. “We’re really worried about the number of people coming in and out of the facility, and the fact that the people living there might be sitting ducks during this pandemic.”

The masks are apart of the SAFER Plan of the REFORM Alliance, which will provide policy recommendations to assist prisons and jails in response to outbreaks.

JAY-Z’s ‘Holy Grail’ Featuring The-Dream is Now Available Following This Weekend Songwriter’s Battle

Over the weekend The-Dream and Sean Garrett duked it out in a heavyweight songwriters battle that heard hits penned for Rihanna, Beyonce and more. In one of the later rounds of the match, The-Dream played  JAY-Z’s “Holy Grail,” which he had a hand in writing, however, it was a little bit different.

The version of “Holy Grail” that made it to all of our music libraries featuring Justin Timberlake, which would be performed by the two as they traveled the globe on the Legends of the Summer tour. During the battle, “Holy Grail” sounded a bit different, The-Dream was in the place of JT.

“JAY’s probably gonna kill me for playing this,” said The-Dream.

Apparently, Hov isn’t that mad as the version with The-Dream is now available to the public courtesy of TIDAL. Peep it below.

Today in Hip-Hop History: Big L’s Debut Album ‘Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous’ Turns 25 Years Old!

On this date, a quarter century ago, Big L dropped his debut and only full length studio album Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous on Columbia Records.

Aside from, eloquently stated by The Source Magazine at the time, “[coming] with ill animated lyrics, combined with metaphors that stun; a combo sure to have suckas on the run,Big L also ushered in two emcees that are very prominent in the culture today: a then-unknown Killa Cam and a semi-established Jay-Z.

Produced primarily by the legendary Lord Finesse with Showbiz and Buckwild on the help out, this was definitely a Diggin’ In The Crates album. According to “Funky Technician” Lord Finesse, who had a hand in some of the album’s production, in an interview commemorating the album’s 15-year anniversary, he said this about the posse track “8 Iz Enuff”, “With that [song] L just thought he had to do a track with the rappers from his hood. And he definitely wanted to put on [those particular emcees]… We looking like, ‘How you gonna put eight niggas on one track?’ [And he was like], ‘Don’t worry, I got this.’”

He definitely had it too.

Unfortunately, Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous would be the only album released by L in his lifetime as he was fatally shot in Harlem in 1999.

Salute to Big L kaka Lamont Coleman(RIP), Lord Finesse, Jay-Z, Cam’ron, Grand Daddy I,U and everyone else who helped make this album a piece of Hip Hop hisotry!

Today in Hip-Hop History: Jay-Z and R. Kelly Release Their Collaborative Album ‘Best Of Both Worlds’ 18 Years Ago

On this date in 2002, Hip-Hop billionaire and troubled R&B legend R. Kelly released their highly anticipated joint album Best Of Both Worlds on the Roc-A-Fella/Def Jam imprint.

One of the most controversial albums and tours in the history of Hip-Hop, Best Of Both Worlds fused Hip-Hop and the already present element of R&B from two of the most prolific artists of the time. Kells and Hov created a synergy that could only be wrapped in a package with artistry from these two notable entertainers. Songs like “Shake Your Body” featuring Lil’ Kim, “Get This Money” and “Somebody’s Girl” embodied the concept of this project. The title track, in which Jay proclaims, “A combination of Pappy Mason and Larry Davis/ Martin and Malcolm, this is bigger than the album..” explained in subtle detail the importance of this collabo project for the fans as well as the two artists.

Nevermind the fact that Jay had just completed his probation for the stabbing of a former friend and associate Lance “Un” Rivera and Kells was facing then his first child sex case. Forget the fact that Jay’s longtime confidant pepper-sprayed Kelly in Madison Square Garden backstage, prompting the singer to drop out of the tour. It safe to say that the anticipation of the album was just as exciting as the drama that surrounded the album and the tour.

Salute to Jay and R. Kelly for delivering such an unforgettable piece of Hip-Hop history!

JAY-Z ‘Tackled’ NFL Deal Backlash in New Verse

Yo, so it really happened. Jay Electronica dropped his debut album, A Written Testimony. For those who have listened you will find The-Dream and Travis Scott as features along with a ton of new bars from JAY-Z.

Throughout 2019, Hov received criticism for his deal with the NFL, which has sparked the Inspire Change initiative that has created numerous campaigns to give back to communities. One of Hov’s flows that are standing out as it is a clap back to backlash.

Why would I sell out? I’m already rich, don’t make no sense
Got more money than Goodell, a whole NFL bench
Did it one-handed like Odell, handcuffed to a jail
I would’ve stayed on the sideline if they could’ve tackled that sh*t themselves

JAY-Z on “Flux Capacitor”

Previously, Jigga addressed the criticism of his deal in a New York Times interview. “As long as real people are being hurt and marginalized and losing family members, then yes, I can take a couple rounds of negative press,” he said.

The verse can be found on “Flux Capacitor,” which you can stream below.

Happy Birthday Beanie Sigel!

Born on this date in 1974 in the City of Brotherly Love, Dwight Grant aka Beanie Sigel aka Beans morphed into a icon in the Philly Hip Hop scene as the leader of the now defunct Roc-A-Fella Records’ State Property. Even with all of his legal troubles and the untimely split of the Roc, Beanie is still regarded as one of the best emcees of his era and one of the very few who lives what he speaks in the booth.

With six solo albums, three State Property collabos and four silver screen blockbuster appearances, it’s difficult to argue that Beans has not had a successful career. Anyone who was able to hold Hova’s attention for more than one album has some obvious skills to match his street bravado.

Happy born day to Beans and many more in the future!
