Protests have been raging in North Carolina and its not Occupy. NAACP’s “Moral Monday’s” has transformed into a movement where hundreds have been handcuffed in the last two months in a show of solidarity for the countries poor. GOP have referenced the bible in their attacks on food stamps and programs for the poor. This has hit a chord in the black and religious bible belt of the south.
Contemporary GOP argue that the por need private charity, jobs, and self reliance instead of government handouts. This ignores the fact that their are a limited amount of wealthy donors(less than usual because of the recession and nearly stagnant recovery) and dollars as the price of living and food continues to skyrocket. GOP also ignore the fact that the jobs market is still recovering slowly, workers wages are at record lows compared to Ceo pay, and the workforce has to compete with a global workforce that can operate at a much cheaper man hour price.
The GOP wants to continue to give bush era tax cuts, while following the age old American policy of cuts to the nearly bankrupt Medicaid program,raise taxes on middle class families, and restrict access to the state run pre-k program. The NAACP has vowed to carry on the protests indefinitely until change is brought. The protesters know that change won’t be immediate, but they vow to continue to fight until the end.

When Justin Bieber received the “Milestone Award” at the 2013 Billboard Awards, the audience didn’t seem to embrace him very well. In fact, from the moment Ceelo Green read Bieber’s name from the card and during his acceptance speech to the fans on national television, the cheers were over saturated with a massive amount of booing spectators.
The camera men did a great job by only showing footage of the supporting fans during the acceptance speech while Bieber put his foot in his mouth by saying “I’m 19 years old, I think I’m doing a pretty good job….. This is not a gimmick, I’m an artist and I should be taking seriously and all this other bull should not be spoken of”. He really pissed the haters off when he made that statement. The footage is below, check it out and comment below.

Now this is NASTY. Just outright NASTY. From the entire time through, if one is to just listen to this nasty, then it’s easy to sight that she doesn’t have it all together. Not saying that he dude wasn’t showing proper etiquette for national television, however, can anybody blame him? Did she, or did she not have sex with her own brother? Well, a lie detector that her as well as her brother took as well stated that SOMETHING happened between the two sibling, perhaps some kissing, fondling or other things, minus the sexual intercourse. Either way, any sexual act involving two family members is just GROSS.
See the craziness below.

Freddie Gibbs recalls Michael Jackson returning to his hometown Gary, Indiana; seeing killas and thugs fainting (cartoon footage)
This has to be one of the funniest Michael Jackson stories ever told in rap history. We all know that Michael Jackson and the rest of the Jackson’s were natives of Gary, Indiana before signing to Berry Gordy’s infamous Motown Records; joining the likes of famous singers, musicians and songwriters such as Diana Ross & The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Gladys Knight to name a few. After Michael and the Jackson’s career took off, they eventually moved to California and began living that Hollywood showbiz life. Michael left Gordy’s Motown label for Epic Records to which he released Off The Wall and Thriller, and eventually ended up becoming the greatest entertainer of all time. Years prior to Michael’s untimely death, he took a trip back to his hometown, Gary, Indiana. It was the happiest day on earth for the people of Gary.
Rapper Freddie Gibbs tells the story of MJ’s hometown visit to which fans were thrilled to see the King of Pop. He mentioned Michael stopping by KFC, ordering all of the chicken via drive-through and people being pissed off because there was no more chicken left. The funniest thing he mentioned though, was seeing THUGS crying and KILLAS fainting because they were so happy to see Michael Jackson. LMBO!
Shouts out to Freddie Gibbs for dropping this exclusive cartoon about Michael Jackson’s visit back to Gary, Indiana.

Film maker Spike Lee has been in the hot seat lately. Everyone he’s targeted has been mostly silence in their response to Lee. However, activist/actor, Dick Gregory basically said Spike needs to shut the hell up. As we know, Lee’s latest rant came with his displeasure of the infamous N-word usage surround Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ film, calling the movie disrespectful and if he were to see the phone, it would be a dishonor to his ancestors. Gregory in response, targeting Spike Lee’s X film, a movie about the little of the late Nation of Islam speaker, Malcom X, said that Lee put Malcolm in a zoot suit, but wasn’t that a dishonor to the ancestors? He also said that Lee is acting like he’s WHITE! 80 years old and still got it. By the way, isn’t Mr. Gregory infamous for the term ‘booty call?’
Check out Dick Gregory’s interview about Spike Lee below.
If making the DJango film wasn’t daring enough, how about dropping the N-Bomb in public? That’s what film maker Quentin Tarantino did. And we’re not referring to a person’s name. However, this particular N-word seems to be the nickname that many Caucasians have for blacks as well as what many blacks have for one another. It has grown from a name fitting for a single race of dark pigmented person, to a name that seems be university popular and in some ways HIP to say. This days, though still controversial, a Caucasian person won’t get punched in the mouth for saying it. Or will they.
“They think I should soften it, that I should lie, that I should massage.” Tarantino said, referring to writers and filmmakers such as Spike Lee, who have criticized his use of the slur in the film. The film’s setting of 1860 antebellum south, he said, made that impossible, as did his artistic integrity. “I would never do that when it comes to my characters,” the director added. (The Hollywood Reporter)
What’s your opinion about Quentin Tarantino’s usage of the N-Word? WATCH this recent video of Quentin Tarantino with MTV’s Sway Calloway discussing the use of the N-Word in Django Unchained.
Break records of Louie, Ate breakfast at Gucci, My girl a superstar all from a home movie. - Kanye West (Clique)
Well, he’s actually right. Thanks to Ray J, brother of singer/actress Brandy Norwood. Makes you wonder how Ray J feels about that line. Maybe he has it on repeat in one of his nice whips and get a kick out of everytime. Has he called Kanye to thank him yet? I truly wonder how he feels about it. Well if taking a look at his twitter page, his heading reads, “I DONT HANG WITH STARS, I CREATE THEM!” Did he write that before the infamous KimYe pregnancy, before they became a couple? WHEN? His sister Brandy isn’t keeping silent about it. In an interview with Pop Stop TV, the R&B sensation stated how happy she is for Kim and Ye. Let’s hope that’s how she really feels. Brandy’s hot by the way. Shouts out to Brandy.
See Brandy’s interview below, as she gives her take on Kim Kardashian’s pregnancy
Was just talking with my students today about personal hygiene and how a nice breath is important in all situations, especially when having a face to face encounter with someone. You want your breath to be squeaky clean. Must take care of everything oral. TEETH, GUMS, an TONGUE. If not, folks like Shanna Malcolm will come after you. Did you see her Brush That Tongue video? She got down with that one. The joint is also available via https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/brush-that-tongue/id583932891?i=583933016

Outkast Big Boi’s new album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors is in stores now. The album is dope. One of my home team favorites is In The A, ft. T.I. & Ludacris. One three of them went H.A.M. on that joint. But did any of you hear what happened at the video shoot? Being that I’m over here in Beijing, China right now, I’m missing all of the action. So I gotta keep up with what’s happening in my home via word of mouth and internet, thanks to this VPN (Virtual Private Network) I’m using to log into sites the Chinese government censors. Anyway, tonight is a good night for my VPN to work. Shouts out to Big Boi, T.I. and Luda for putting together a vid for this joint. If hadn’t done this, we wouldn’t be catching any of the ratchet action that went down at the shoot. LOL!

Complex Magazine names Essence Atkins, Robinne Lee, Meagan Good, and Gabrielle Union #1 in their The 25 Sexiest Sisters In Movies feature
Remember the 2003 African American comedy film Deliver Us From Eva, which evolved around LL Cool J’s character, Ray, a master player, being paid to date a troublesome young lady named Eva, played by Gabrielle Union? And do you know about Complex Magazine, which was founded in 2002 by Marc Ecko? Just incase you don’t remember either or neither, it’s a must that you find much out about both the movie and the magazine due to some awesome news, perhaps for the fellas. The film had some of the hottest women in Hollywood if you ask me. What I mean is that they all being together in one film made them even hottest. Guess it was hot enough for Josh Robertson over at www.complex.com to give them the number 1 spot in his The Sexiest Sisters in Film feature. And they are Essence Atkins, Robinne Lee, Meagan Good, and Gabrielle Union. One can argue, yet can’t deny that those are some bad women right there, on and off film. Could you imagine in real life if they were blood related siblings? That would be DANGEROUS. Personally, the movie itself was alright back then. Maybe wouldn’t be as funny to me now. However, I could watch it with the volume muted. It’ll be for a worthy cause.
“I’ve been in that contract for 16 years,” he explained. “Yeah, the other day he let me out of it, so big shout-outs to Diddy. I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.” – Ma$e speaking about Sean P. Diddy Combs
The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.
Well that was good, and it makes you wonder why Diddy kept the guy in the contract for so long? I mean he was his (Diddy) prized package since the unfortunate death of the late great Notorious B.I.G. So yeah, go figure! But anyway, both can move on now. But now that Ma$e is free, will he sign with Kanye? He did with Ye on the G.O.O.D. Music ‘s Cruel Summer compilation project. He does admire Yeezy’s work ethic as well as the creative space he gives his artists. Perhaps in today’s era of hip hop and Ma$e’s style, G.O.O.D. Music may well be the place for the Harlem emCee.
Check out this RapFix interview w/ Ma$e being interviewed by MTV’s own Sway Calloway.
I got shot 5 times but I’m still breathing Living proof there’s a God – if you need a reason. – 2Pac – Letter To My Unborn Child
No Rick Ross didn’t get shot and God forbid it happens. But is the BOSS TALK too much to which it could make him a target for hoodlums? Ross had tour to which he then cancelled. He says it was do to an due with a promoter. Yet it’s rumored that it was because of death threats by members of a southside Chicago street gang that goes by the name Gangster Disciples.
In response to the death threat talk, the MMG rapper and CEO stated that he’s a certified man, a real boss and this is something that everybody needs to understand. Could those words right there get the bawse, as he pronounces it, tested? God forbid.
Race and ethnicity has always been a complex matter, especially regarding people of color, or BLACKNESS. There’s still that one percent factor. In other words, if there’s even a “pinch” of black blood in your DNA then you’re black. A huge factor during the African slave trade and still exist in modern society. Positive or negative? If looking at the current American president, Barack Obama, then POSITIVE, or NEGATIVE, via perception (good or bad), pride and prejudice. How about American professional golfer, Tiger Woods, who refers to his ethnic make-up as “Cablinasian” due to the mixed ancestry of his parents? When millions look at him, they see a black man. Well, not until his recent publicized scandal regarding an extra marital affair. Identification is in the number 1′s of problems regarding how people view themselves and others. Could there ever be one answer to define this matter?
Watch reporter Soledad O’brien “Who Is Black in America?” on CNN 8pm ET/PT Sunday, December 15th.

Jesus had twelve disciples. And one of them name was Judas Iscariot. People recognize Judas as one who did the ultimate betrayal when he kissed Jesus on the cheeks. Read your Bibles. Well rapper Game and Nipsey Hussle also feels that they’ve betrayed their own souls. For what? Palm streets and 6-4′s. That’s CALIFORNIA right there. You won’t understand it if you’ve never been out there. Timbaland, though from Virginia most support it because he produced the track. The track is BANGING for sure. Dope music. Cop that Jesus Piece album December 11th.

Bobbi Kristina Gets Into Car Accident
Bobbi Kristina was in a serious car accident on Wednesday Nov. 28th 2012. Fortunately she escaped unharmed. According to www.aceshowbiz.com
“The only daughter of Whitney Houston allegedly lost control of her vehicle when attempting to make a left turn out of her apartment block. In a picture obtained by TMZ, the front bumper and tires of Bobbi’s once-shiny car was badly damaged. Luckily, the young reality TV star was left unharmed in the accident. When cops arrived on the scene, she was standing beside her car without any visible injuries.
“At 11:46 A.M., the Alpharetta 911 center received a telephone call from a passerby who advised us a black Camaro had left a roadway and had traveled down an embankment,” said George Gordon, executive officer and public information officer with the Alpharetta Department of Public Safety, in an email to Atlanta-Journal Constitution.
This may be one of 50 Cent’s biggest hits to date. He knows the approach for making classic albums and singles. Yet getting the Maroon 5′s front man, Adan Levine to join him on a track is indeed surprising. 50 and Levine perform their ‘My Life’ single on NBC’s The Voice last night. Shady Records CEO, Eminem who is indeed a friend to 50, also appears on the track, however didn’t make The Voice appearance. However, the crowd wasn’t disappointed, as there were Screams galore. Can we say a GRAMMY nod?
It’s been 25 years since the making of the one of the greatest pop albums of all time (Bad) and perhaps 25 years later, it would still be considered as one of the ultimate classic albums. To many, Thriller may have been Michael Jackson’s best selling album; however, it was Bad that gave MJ the King of Pop title. Michael Jackson was not only a musical influence to many; furthermore. he influenced choreography, dance, fashion, etc.
In this short documentary, Bad 25, directed by the great Spike Lee, fans get to witness unseen footage of Michael’s recording process for his 1987 iconic Bad album as well as be surprised to which songs nearly didn’t make the final cut for the album. Guest appearances includes people who Michael worked with as well as admired, from Martin Scorsese, who directed the Bad video, Siedah Garrett (Man In The Mirror, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You), Quincy Jones (executive producer for Off The Wall, Thriller and Bad), Cee-lo Green, Kanye West, Chris Brown, Questlove, Sheryl Crow (actress and former background vocalist for Michael Jackson), Greg Phillinganes (Michael’s keyboardist), Tatiana Thumbtzen and a list of others.

The LOX is the truth man. Styles P is a BEAST! But you know, most BEASTS don’t sell in today’s industry. However, with his new joint, ‘Pop Out’, it still proves that the homie is one of the dopest in this hip hop game to do it.
Check out the video for Styles P ‘Pop Out’ below.
Will Sesame Street get rid of Elmo since Kevin Clash has resigned at the result of a second accuser coming forward? (video)
Who cares about Kevin Clash aka the voice of Elmo (Sesame Street) is gay? Well the kids do and parents are definitely going to have a hard time explaining the sex scandal and that Mr. Clash has resigned after nearly three decades of being the voice of Elmo. What will happen to the rates PBS and Sesame Street due to his departure after a second accuser has come forth, claiming he, in 1993 being fifteen years old at the time, meet the puppeteer on a gay phone chatline? Damage has indeed been done. Perhaps excluding the character Elmo from the famous children show will help keep a clean image at PBS. Maybe we’ll be saying R.I.P. to Sesame Street soon, because what is Sesame Street without Elmo.
Game’s upcoming Jesus Piece album may be one of the greatest hip hop albums of 2012. He compares Jesus Piece to the iconic Dr. Dre’s ‘The Chronic’ album. Is that fair game? Maybe so, maybe not; however, Game got a hell of a lot of collaborations on the album, minus Game’s good friend, Snoop Dogg aka Snoop Lion. In my opinion, that’s the only collaboration missing, because when those two blue and red rappers (Crip & Blood) rappers get together, they MURDER tracks. Yet certain collaborations will indeed stand out, such as “HVN4AGNGSTA,” to which Game called on No Limit Forever Record’s founder and CEO, Master P. to do his infamous Uhhhhh crooning as well as drop a verse on the joint. But get this, the original track is entitled ‘Heaven For a Gangster’, which surfaced on P’s 1997 album entitled Tru Da 2 Game.
“The thing about Game is he’s a hard worker and redoing ‘Heaven for a Gangster’ is magical,” explained P to AllHipHop.com. “He’s from the streets and rededicated his life and I definitely love working with him.”
Below, check out both versions of Heaven for a Gangster (HVN4AGANGSTA).

Highway – Movie Trailer Eddie Griffin, Devin The Dude
I gotta check out this movie. One of my favorite rappers, Devin The Dude in a movie about his favorite pastime (WEED). This movie trailer is funny as hell. S/O to Devin, Lil Duval, Eddie Griffin, Tiny Lister and the entire cast.
