There were no injuries and the stage is being reset for the weekend.” They added, “In case you see it on the news, a screen fell down at one of our stages.

[WATCH] Cassidy Accuses Tory Lanez Of Stealing His Flows

Screen Shot 2021 07 22 at 8.33.56 AM

Tory Lanez recently visited HOT 97 and dropped a five-minute freestyle over Cassidy’s “I’m A Hustla” beat, but it didn’t take long before Cassidy noticed that the guy accused of shooting Megan Thee Stallion sounds just like him.

Cas took to IG last night to compare Lanez’s raps with his own, showing that Lanez flow sounds eerily similar to Cassidy, not only on this week’s HOT 97 freestyle, but in a rhyme Lanez spit as far back as 2017.

“I’m @torylanez favorite rapper #RNS,” he wrote. “Ain’t no denying that. #GoatGang. Show me the respect I deserve & #LetsGetToThisChicken #BARSisBack #DaEnergy.”

In the most recent freestyle, Lanez even went as far as saying that he was framed in the Megan Thee Stallion shooting, which only got him dragged further in the blogosphere. Listen the full freestyle below.

Harvey Weinstein Extradited to Los Angeles to Face Sexual Assault Charges

Screen Shot 2021 07 21 at 7.24.41 AM

According to a report from TMZ, disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has been extradited to L.A. to face indictments for more sexual assault charges.

Weinstein has been indicted for eleven charges stemming from sexual assault allegations from five different women. The 69-year-old former film producer has already been convicted of rape in New York and is sentenced to 23 years in prison, but now has to face charges on the West Coast.

Weinstein’s attorney Mark Werksman said the producer’s legal team was given notice that Weinstein was being extradited on Tuesday and that his flight was going nonstop to L.A. so that he can possibly make his Wednesday court appearance. His lawyers attempted to stop the extradition, but the District Attorney in Los Angeles did not want to wait for a judge ruling in New York in that matter.

TheSource.com will update this story as details develop.

Today in Hip-Hop History: House Of Pain Dropped Their Debut LP ‘Fine Malt Lyrics’ 29 Years Ago

tumblr puz21a6gX21t1yehoo1 1280

Way back in 1992, a Hip Hop revolution was occurring and there were only certain critical albums that were a part of that musical metamorphosis. House Of Pain’s Fine Malt Lyrics is one of those albums released during the peak of Hip Hop’s diversified authentic artists. This album came out during the same era as the premier of emcees like B-Real & Cypress Hill, The Beatnuts, and of course, the apex of 3rd Bass.

Fine Malt Lyrics, which was produced by the legendary DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill and DJ Lethal, churned out the all-time classic smash “Jump Around”. The song is considered one of the greatest of all time, making at least ten silver screen theme music appearances and even more in football and baseball entrances.

Other dope tracks include “Put Your Head Out” featuring B-Real, House And The Rising Son” featuring Funkdoobiest, and of course, the “Jump Around remix by Pete Rock.

We salute Everlast, DJ Muggs, and DJ Lethal for this 3.5 Micer and because of you guys, we will forever lose it when we hear Jump Around!

Today in Hip-Hop History: Cam’ron Dropped His Debut Album ‘Confessions Of Fire’ 23 Years Ago

tumblr puz1y4CHDF1t1yehoo1 640

On this day in Hip Hop history, Dipset head honcho Cam’ron released his debut solo LP, Confessions of Fire on the Undeas Entertainment imprint. 

Following the tragic death of his cousin Derek “Bloodshed” Armstead and the disbanding of his former group Children of the Corn, which included Big L, Cam, Ma$e, and Bloodshed, this release served as Cam’s introduction to the rap game and debut to the mainstream as a solo artist.

Much to the tune of a lot of the music coming out of New York in the late 90s, this album had both hardcore street and pop crossover appeal that came from its gritty street narrative filled lyric and high energy production of Swizz Beatz and Jermaine Dupri. Commercially this debut was quite the success peaking at #6 on the Billboard 200 chart and #2 on the Top R&B/Hip Hop chart while selling over 500,000 copies.

The project’s sole single “Horse & Carriage,” featuring Ma$e and produced by Trackmasters, was a radio hit, just barely missing the Top 40 on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart, it peaked at #41.
