Odell Beckham Jr.

NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. is fully embracing his new life. The popular wide receiver has continued to geek out over becoming a Cleveland Brown.

This weekend, OBJ hopped on Instagram with a slew of new Browns-inspired posts including one of himself and quarterback Baker Mayfield in a Rocky meme.

On Thursday, OBJ hit up Instagram with a must-read note to the Giants and diehard fans acknowledging his time in New York.

A few days ago, Odell broke his silence on getting traded from the Giants to the Browns.

Once the trade news went viral, hip-hop star Machine Gun Kelly and NBA champion LeBron James hyped up Odell’s trade.

Anderson .Paak’s 1st Song From His Next Album Is All Heart & Soul (Audio)

On March 4, Keith Flint of the Electronic music group, The Prodigy, was found dead in his Essex, England home. Tragically, the 49-year-old took his life just one month after his final performance with the group.

The British collective crossed over into the mainstream upon the release of their third studio album, 1997’s The Fat Of The Land. The Prodigy made waves with the album’s singles, “Firestarter” and “Breathe,” both reaching #1 on the UK charts. Eventually, the band’s third single from the project, “Smack My B*tch Up,” found its way to the charts with an alley-oop from a nod to Hip-Hop innovators, the Ultramagnetic MCs.

Ced Gee, TR Love, Mo Love, and Kool Keith Thornton are all listed alongside Howlett as songwriters on the 1997 Dance hit. The chorus vocals placed on the multi-platinum record are sampled from Critical Beatdown‘s “Give The Drummer Some.” In an interview with HipHopDX contributor Dana Scott, Kool Keith and Ced also explain how the recognition and paycheck from another genre came at a really important time in their personal lives.

Keith remembers The Prodigy approaching him. “They had called me up. Liam [Howlett] was a great friend anyway.” Howlett co-founded The Prodigy with Maxim Reality, Leeroy Thornhill, and Flint, who served as dancer and vocalist.

Ced Gee follows, “Let me tell how he got his number. What happened was they were working with the president of Next Plateau, Eddie O’ Loughlin, at the time. He cleared the sample. So Eddie said, ‘Why don’t you just do it fresh with Keith?’ Because I was working at Next Plateau at the time as the head of A&R and we gave them Keith’s number, and that’s how the reach out became. That’s how they started working together.” Next Plateau, who put out Critical Beatdown, had also worked closely with Salt-N-Pepa, Paperboy, and Antoinette, in addition to a roster of Dance acts.

Kool Keith explains how friendship transcended collaboration. “I did shows with [The Prodigy] when the record [The Fat Of The Land] came out. I did one or two shows with them. One of them in New York and another, I think, in Melbourne, Australia. I was backstage with them and [Keith Flint] was a cool person. They had a lot of champagne, a lot of girls and cool Electronic music. That was a nice tour out there with them. And for the first time, it was good that I had real fun with those guys.”

Later, Kool and Ced talk about other records The Prodigy used their lyrics for, and the compensation they received for “Smack My B*tch Up.”

Kool also recalls how the 1997 hit, which he and Ced received platinum plaques for, led to more work. “They had another album [Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned] with the big lips on it where they sampled our stuff, too.” Those compositions included “Wake Up Call” and “You’ll Be Under My Wheels.” As Scott points out, Keith’s “Critical Breakdown” vocal (“I’ll take your brain to another dimension / Pay close attention“) was sampled for The Prodigy’s 1992 single, “Out of Space.”

Ced Gee, recognized for his revolutionary sample techniques, said the re-purposed music was a blessing. “I was under a levy from the IRS at that time. The ‘Smack My B*tch Up’ sample paid off the levy which was about $100,000. After it was over and all corrected, I still had $18,000. That’s how sweet that was. [Laughs] I got that, so imagine what [others] made.”

Keith expounds, “I never had to run around to chase that money, and I was provided for well. And I hope that band didn’t break up, but Keith was such an important person as the lead singer in the band. That’s like Michael Jackson in Jackson 5, Kurt Cobain [in Nirvana], so it’s kind of hard.” Recently, Lord Finesse, another Bronx O.G. whose vocal was used by British Electronic star Fatboy Slim, says he regrets the terms of licensing his material. That appears not to be the case for Ced and Keith. In the late ’90s, Keith was battling against Ruffhouse/Sony Records to release his Black Elvis album, which he discusses at length in the interview.

Outside of remembering Flint and Prodigy, Kool Keith unveils an upcoming release of a new album he recorded with one of The Beatnuts. “I just did an album with Psycho Les that’s coming out. I got Paul Wall, Jeru The Damaja, Erick Sermon and B-Real from Cypress Hill on it. The two Ultramag’ co-founders also confirm upcoming work together.

Life is too short to listen to bad music. So…let Ambrosia For Heads fight through it for you and only supply you with that great stuff. Despite the reports, Hip-Hop is alive and well and, in many ways, is better than it’s ever been. Not only are we able to go back and listen to all of our favorites, at the click of a button, there is also a ton of great music still being made by artists, young and veteran alike…if you know where to look. To help with that task, we’ve created a playlist with recent music—songs that have been released within the last year or so. We update it regularly, so, if you like what you hear, subscribe to follow us on Spotify.

2018 was a pivotal year for Anderson .Paak. Last November, .Paak paid homage to his California hometown with the Dr. Dre-executive produced album, Oxnard, with features from Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Pusha T, J. Cole, and Q-Tip. Additionally, .Paak wrapped up the year with a Grammy win for his Oxnard preceding loosie single, “Bubblin,” in a tie with Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake’s “King’s Dead,” from the K-Dot-helmed collaborative project, Black Panther: The Album.

Anderson .Paak’s Song With Q-Tip & Dr. Dre Is A Reason To Celebrate (Audio)

Just two weeks after his Grammy nod, .Paak announced the release of a brand new project, Ventura, and his biggest national tour schedule to date. This week, the man formerly known as Breezy LoveJoy unveiled a studded tracklist for the album with guest appearances from Andre 3000, the late Nate Dogg, Smokey Robinson, Brandy, and Sonyae Elise. In anticipation for the record, The Free Nationals front-man drops his first track, “King James.”

The mood for his latest single is chocked full of Soul and Jazz influences that .Paak has been praised for. “King James” is a labor of love to push through troubling times, and Anderson makes his point heard as he takes an empowering political twist on a funky, plush production. .Paak sings, “We’ve been through it all, though it could be worse / We’ve been moved around in a state of alert / There’s nothing new or sharp about the cutting edge / If they build a wall, let’s jump the fence, I’m over this.”

Anderson .Paak Flexes On A New Dr. Dre Production (Audio)

Saluting the activism displayed by professional athletes like Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, and more, .Paak interpolates NBA All-Star LeBron James into the record, becoming the catalyst for the change .Paak is seeking in the world. He continues, “We couldn’t stand to see our children shot dead in the streets / But when I finally took a knee / Them crackers took me out the league / Now I’m not much for games / But I play for keeps / And we salute King James for using his change / To create some equal opportunities.”

The song is produced by Callum and Kiefer, who did “Smile / Pretty” on last year’s Oxnard. Anderson .Paak is set to release his fourth studio album, Ventura, April 12. It will be through Dre’s Aftermath in conjunction with Doug Morris’ 12 Tone Music.

In addition to new music from Anderson .Paak, the official AFH playlist includes songs from Billy Danze, 2 Chainz, J. Cole, Nas, Atmosphere, Boogie, Eminem, Big K.R.I.T., Pharoahe Monch, Denzel Curry, Benny The Butcher, Masta Ace & Marco Polo, Apollo Brown & Joell Ortiz, Drake, AZ, Bun B, Wu-Tang Clan, Evidence, and others.

Odell Beckham Jr.’s New Teammate Kareem Hunt Suspended 8 Games For Attacking Woman

Kareem Hunt

NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr. is going to have to wait until mid-season before he shares the football field with Kareem Hunt. The NFL has announced an eight-game suspension of the newly acquired Cleveland Browns running back.

On Friday, the NFL announced its decision to suspend Hunt for half of the upcoming season for violating its personal conduct policy.

Hunt has since released a statement acknowledging the situation and his suspension.

Last month, the Browns made a controversial decision to sign Kareem after the Kansas Chiefs released him in December following footage surfaced of him assaulting a woman in a hotel lobby.

Following their own investigation, the Browns signed Hunt to a one-year contract Monday, giving the former star Chiefs running back a second chance after a video showed him pushing and kicking a woman. “I think we’re all appalled by it,” general manager John Dorsey said at the team’s headquarters, hours after the Browns announced the controversial signing. “It is an egregious act. We all understand that. But after doing our research, extensive research, analyzing the situation, we came to the conclusion that I am willing to help a man from a second chance moving forward to be a better person, and that’s all you can ask for in society, and that’s all I’m trying to do.” (AP News)

This week, Hunt’s now-teammate Odell Beckham Jr. released a statement following his trade from the New York Giants to the Browns.

Big Boi & NFL Partner Up For $100K Donation To ATL’s MLK Center

NFL: FEB 03 Super Bowl LIII - Pepsi Halftime Show

Source: Icon Sportswire / Getty

Super Bow LIII took place in the city of Atlanta and featured one of its most notable music acts in Big Boi in the halftime show alongside Maroon 5. The Outkast rapper and the NFL joined forces to donate to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in his hometown.


TMZ Sports
reports:

The Outkast rapper — who performed with Adam Levine and co. during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show — will announce Thursday a joint donation of $100k from himself and the NFL. We’re told the money will be going to the Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change in Big Boi’s hometown of Atlanta.

Sources familiar with the deal tell TMZ … the joint donation is similar to the ones the league made with the other halftime performers in Atlanta. Maroon 5’s went to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, and Travis’ went to Van Jones’ Dream Corps.

Their donations were announced before the big game, but we’re told Big Boi always intended to make one too. He just took longer to announce it because he needed time to decide where the money would be put to the best use — and The King Center won out.

Salute to Big Boi for this grand gesture!

Colin Kaepernick Finally Wins Never-Ending NFL War W/ Low-Key Pay Day

Colin Kaepernick 2

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick can finally exhale. The Black Lives Matter activist’s publicized war against the National Football League is now a thing of the past with a financial settlement going down.

According to reports, the NFL agreed to an undisclosed amount with Kaepernick and his former San Francisco 49ers teammate/supporter Eric Reid in a collusion case.

Kaepernick and Reid had a joint collusion case against the league. Kaepernick, who filed his grievance in October 2017, alleged that the NFL was working to keep him out of the league after he began kneeling during the national anthem three years ago. Reid, who knelt with Kaepernick in San Francisco, had also been out of work until being signed by the Panthers during the 2018 season. Reid had also filed his own grievance against the league. The players’ complaint, which alleged violations of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, was headed to a full hearing before an arbitrator later in February. (Charlotte Observer)

Kaepernick even went to his social media pages to confirm the deal.

The headline-generating news has sparked a flurry of celebrity reactions.

Earlier this month, Kaepernick saluted singer Rihanna for supporting him and not watching Super Bowl LIII.

Kareem Hunt Gets NFL Job Despite Video Footage Of Him Beating Woman

Heroes at The ESPYs Event

Source: Adriana M. Barraza/WENN.com / WENN

Kareem Hunt found himself booted from a talent-stacked Kansas City Chiefs squad last year after footage of him beating and kicking a woman surfaced. Despite the video evidence, Hunt was offered a job with the Cleveland Browns but his pathway in getting back to the field will be complicated.

Bleacher Report writes:

Early Monday afternoon, the Browns signed Hunt to a one-year, $1 million contract.

Congratulations, NFL: business as usual is back, and it’s booming.

There’s video of what Hunt did, from multiple angles. It’s a chaotic scene: a 216-pound athlete lashing out.

A CNN report cited three separate calls to police dispatch. It also noted that the hallway assault was one of three violent off-field acts of which he was accused in 2018: In January, a man told police in Kansas City, Missouri, that his nose and ribs were broken by Hunt and teammate George Atkinson during a nightclub brawl, and a witness said Hunt punched another individual during an altercation in June.

Hunt lands the gig by way of Browns GM John Dorsey, who was previously the Chiefs’ GM and drafted the running back. Dorsey claims Hunt has taken accountability for his actions and is working with the team on a treatment plan.

Some New England Patriots Players Are Skipping Traditional White House Visit

NFL: FEB 03 Super Bowl LIII - Rams v Patriots

Source: Icon Sportswire / Getty

After defeating the Los Angeles Rams in the recent Super Bowl LIII contest, the New England Patriots are bucking tradition at least in some part. Some Pats players are opting to skip the traditional visit to the White House, robbing President Donald Trump of a usually expected photo op.

New York Daily News reports:

It didn’t take long for members of the Patriots to start fielding the question that has become inevitable for champions: Will you visit Donald Trump’s White House?

Some of them have already made it clear they won’t. Twins Devin and Jason McCourty told reporters on Monday that they would be skipping the trip if invited by the president. Devin was adamant about staying away, while Jason was more diplomatic at first.

“I haven’t thought about it, but I highly doubt it,” he said. Then his brother prodded him a bit and Jason said there was almost no chance he would go.

TMZ Sports reported that safety Duron Harmon, who is Black, will also skip the trip.
