So I’m strolling through my timeline on Twitter and noticed that Nelly tweeted
“Fedz watching remix….???? today in studio video??? Unless u don’t want it..?”
Unfortunately, a hater re-tweeted him and said “We don’t won’t it” followed by a few more negative replies. Shit was kinda funny, after a few more post, Nelly got pissed off and responded to two of his biggest haters.

Below is the “Fedz Watching Remix” by Nelly. Tell me what you think about it. Comment below!!!
Yasiin Bey, better known as rapper Mos Def volunteered to undergo the force feeding procedure to show the people how painful it is for more than 40 protesting inmates in Guantánamo Bay. During the month of Ramadan, over 100 inmates are on hunger-strikes and almost half of them are being force feed. S/O to Mos Def and Human Rights organization Reprieve for providing this film.
Dope performance by Kendrick Lamar! He was a “G” for bring out the lovely Erykah Badu to sing the hook for “Kill My Vibe”. She was looking soooo sexy in those colorful leggings. By the way, Kendrick won the Best New Artist Award. Congratulations to Kendrick Lamar!
While Bow Wow was interviewing Ace Hood after his performance at the 2013 BET Awards, Ace Hood’s Bezel Rolex watch falls apart and the camera man zooms in on it. I don’t know a whole lot about Rolex, but I don’t think they suppose to break that easy. Hummmm, got me wondering if homie was rockin a fake watch. If so, that’s his business! Those watches are too expensive any way. SMH!!!
Rapper Action Bronson was on stage performing live in a venue in Boston when a crazed fan decided to jump on stage and rock with him. With no hesitation, Action Bronson quickly grabs the fan, slams him on his back, and throws the guy off stage before security could react.
T.I. is making huge moves in the hip hop industry. Already having success with Atlanta’s own B.O.B, Dro, and more, Tip has added Memphis, Tennessee artist Yo Gotti to the roster. Yo Gotti, already a big star in rap will have the opportunity to spread his wings on a larger circuit. Check out this interview with T.I. and Trae Tha Truth by VLADTV.
I give 2 Chainz props for performing a new song on the stage of Summer Jam XX in NYC. He put himself on the spot when he performed Feds Watching and the crowd responded well.
BMF, Black Mafia Family was a powerful movement until the Feds moved in to cripple their operation. The Rise And Fall Of A Hip Hop Drug Empire is a documentary about their movement and their leader, Big Meech.
Is Benzino leaving Love & Hip Hop Atlanta over beef with Stevie J? Recently Benzino a.k.a Zino Grigio released a new single/video entitled Smashed Da Homie. The video was inspired by accusations on the reality show (Love & Hip Hop Atlanta) that Benzino had sex with Stevie J’s artist/girlfriend Joseline.
As a publicity stunt, Benzino featured Joseline Hernandez in the video and that is when the issues escalated. According to TheUrbanDaily.com, Benzino and Stevie J have been beefing on Twitter back and forth and the tweets are very personal. I hope these guys get pass the b.s. and move forward as men. Don’t let reality tv ruin your long term friendship.
My question is, Why in the hell would Cash Money put out a Big Tymers album without Mannie Fresh? When I think of Big Tymers, I think of a Mannie Fresh track, a basic but catchy Mannie Fresh verse, a typical Baby verse and a dope Lil Wayne feature. Overall, a nice club banger is what I am expecting to hear from them. To be honest, I think Weezy, Drake and Baby together on a album would be huge for Cash Money and would be much more anticipated than trying to re-do something that has already been done. Check out what Mannie Fresh had to say about it….
R.I.P. Chris Kelly of Kris Kross
I remember spring break 1991, me and my cousin Dee was in Daytona Beach, FL. reppin the ATL real hard. At the time we both weighed about 120lbs and we rock’d baseball gear, different teams tho. We walked the strip holla’n at gulz, drinkin, smoking, taking pics and the whole nine. All we heard bumpin throughout the entire weekend was Kris Kross. People don’t remember how big that group was back in the early 90′s. One thing I hate about the hip hop culture and the urban community is, we don’t pay homage to our artist from back in the day. As a whole, we only embrace what’s hot at the moment. Once the buzz goes down and the next trend and big star arrives, we leave the old stuff behind and seldom look back. R.I.P. Chris Kelly aka Mac Daddy! Live In Paradise my friend. S/O to Chris Smith aka Daddy Mac, Jermaine Dupri, and the whole So So Def team. Also S/O to Facebook friend LaSonya W. for the 411! Below is Kris Kross last big performance on stage together at the So So Def All Star 20th Year Anniversary Concert

Celebrities have been speaking out and blasting TMZ for its reporting about Lil Wayne. Yesterday, the breaking news outlet shocked the entertainment world by stating that Wayne was in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles. They went so far as to claim that Wayne was in an induced coma and his last death rites were being read as doctors awaited for his mother to arrive and make final decisions on what to do with her son (which they later deleted from the article).
Members of Wayne’s camp, like Birdman and Mack Maine, shot down TMZ‘s claims and told fans that the rapper was “recovering” and Weezy himself later confirmed on Twitter that he was doing just fine.
Birdman tweeted, “My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta…be home soon,” but YMCMB prez Mack Maine had a few choice words for TMZ, criticizing the site for what he deemed incorrect reporting. “We will be releasing an official statement shortly but dont believe the nonsense about comas and tubes to breathe…that’s false!!” and “#F—TMZ.”
Wayne’s daughter Reginae took to Instagram to share her thoughts, writing, “Don’t listen to The Lies, I swear there all lies TMZ you a fool 18h” while her mother, Wayne’s ex-wife Toya Carter, added, “It would be a much better world if people would stop and think before they spread RUMORS.”
T.I. also threw in, “Just holla’d @my Lil bruh Tunechi… he skraight! TMZ some f— n—-z for reporting that hoe-ass-sh–!!! That man daughter is like mines. That sh– surely got his mama hurtin, his kids hurtin, he got true to da game patnas like me Othas who ready to RIDE bout all da f— sh–. … #nowthankitsagamen—-!!!”
So, we guess there’s some trouble in paradise? Because these days you can always count on Twitter to let you know. Gucci Mane has apparently decided to drop Waka Flocka Flame from his Atlanta-based label and he let fans know via Twitter tonight, writing, “Waka flacka flames officially dropped off brick squad 1017. Big Guwop say give me a offer fa this disloyal lil n—.”
(Note: Gucci Mane referring to himself as Guwop). Waka couldn’t seem to help himself, when he responded, “Somebody tell Gucci Mane 2 SUCK A D—,” because he later deleted the message and retweeted a fan to explain that he wouldn’t be hashing their issues out on Twitter (“@WakaFlockaBSM Can’t tweet beef #HucciKnowHowIrOck” and “Can’t tweet jones about a n—- I’m a let a lame be lame”)
But he kinda seemed to have a sense of humor about it too, retweeting a fan who wrote this: “@Money_Ova_Men: So these n—-s @WakaFlockaBSM and @Gucci1017 having a “I HATE YOU BITCH” moment… Lol! LoL” and then he decided to throw in a lil jab anyway, with the inevitable joke. ”@elbrothabear shoulda known something was up with gucci when he got that ice cream cone on his face.”
No confirmation on whether this is permanent or just an outburst, because Waka still seemed confident enough to tweet, “We BSM.”
We’re sure there are more details to come. Things were all good just a few weeks ago when Waka was looking forward to Gucci’s upcoming role in Spring Breakers.
Well surely you’ve all heard by now the BREAKING NEWS regarding the reconciliation of one time partners, Suge Knight and Snoop Lion aka/formerly known as Snoop D-O-double G, who started his music career via Knight and former partner Dr. Dre’s then label, Death Row Records imprint. Clearly it’s the most surprising reconciliation ever to date in music and hip hop history, topping the once heavy beef that was squashed by the two Kings of New York, Nas and Jay Z, as the Jigga Man stunned the crowd on the set of his “I Declare War” concert(1995) in East Rutherford , NJ when saying these words, “Let’s Go Esco”, to which the Queensbridge eMCee joined him on stage. Not many music moguls can celebrate a reunion or reconciliation as egos are way too heavy, especially in hip hop. In the words of Sleepy Brown “Cuz everybody wants to be a tough guy”. Another reason is that either one of both artists, crews, etc. are now deceased, some in tragic situations before there could ever be an official reunion. And another serious issue is MONEY. Many artists are enslaved to their labels and any association or reunion with a former comrade, according the label, ruins the possibility to make more money. So for that matter, those artists tends to ride for their label, bearing the pain of not being able to reconnect with their old homies again.
As for the case with Suge and Snoop, who’s long period infamous beef didn’t end with neither of them getting killed, THANK GOD; what happens next? What does their reunion mean to all whom stood by either or both throughout the last 16/17 years of the two being at odds? What are people saying about Suge? What are they saying about Snoop? For many, Suge is one of the most feared men on the face of the earth, while Snoop on the other hand, is the world’s favorite UNCLE, can do whatever he wants, including CHANGING HIS NAME (see Snoop Lion) and no one will trip. What does this mean for Snoop’s relationship with is mentor Dr. Dre and Tha Dogg Pound? What does this mean for the Bloods & Crips street gang?
Regardless whether it has any meaning or not, PEACE is BETTER THAN WAR. Hey, they may never become the best of friends again. However, they both can exhale. To give meaning to their reconciliation, it’s their business and they don’t have to answer to anyone for that matter. Was it a none gangster move for them to PEACE UP? Naw, what it did was SOLIDIFY what it means to be gangster. And at the end of the day, BEEFING DOES NOTHING BUT WASTE TIME!. So what happens next between the two? Guessing we’ll have to wait and see. Yet in the meantime, SALUTE to Suge Knight and Snoop Lion for being “G” about it.

He released a tell all book entitled “The Soundtrack of My Life” where he talks about his 50 years of music experience and his bisexual relationship with men. For the full story click the link below
Freddie Gibbs Disses Young Jeezy
Freddie Gibbs signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE label a while back and things didn’t work out well for him. According to Freddie Gibbs, he and Jeezy disagreed with how his career was being handled. Gibbs felt that Young Jeezy was more concerned about pushing his own brand instead of focusing on Freddie Gibbs. Gibbs also disagreed with T.I.’s opinion that gangster rap is dead. This was a good interview, s/o to Freddie Gibbs, Chicago, and 107.5 WGCI.
“I ain’t 2Pac, I’m the new Pac. Holla at cha boy.” – Lil Wayne
If you thought comparing rough sex to the late Emmett Till was enough, what about making self comparisons to 2Pac? Well, how about calling oneself 2Pac? Being obviously upset about being banned from all NBA Events by NBA team, the Miami Heat, YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne went on a tantrum to which he dissed the Heats and its fellow players Lebron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, he then went on to call himself the new 2Pac. And it seem as if to a great surprise, he didn’t receive any boos from the crowd. Remember Pac’s infamous record Hit’em Up, to which he introduction had this to say to the late Notorious B.I.G.: “That’s why I F***’d Your B@#$% you fat MuthaF****?” Well, Lil Wayne, seeming to be referencing Pac’s Biggie diss, claims to have sex’d Chris Bosh (Miami Heat)‘s wife. Has he gone too far? It’ll be interesting to see what’ll happen next.
Emmett Till was enough, who in 1955 was visiting family in Mississippi, was murdered by a mob of angry white men for allegedly whistling at a white woman. He was only 14. 2Pac in 1996, died several days following a Mike Tyson fight in Las Vegas, Nevada due to complications from multiple gun shot wounds. He was only 25.
Check out the video of Lil Wayne calling himself the new 2Pac.
J. Cole – Truly Yours EP
The Roc Nation/ North Carolina representer dropped a 5 song EP (click picture above) along with this letter to his fans this morning:
I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..
The wait is over.
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
Woke up this morning to an Outkast record. Well, sort of. It was the remix to Frank Ocean’s Pink Matter joint, which originally features 1/2 of Outkast, Andre 3000. However, this remix brings out the other half, Big Boi aka Daddy Fat Sacks, as many of us Atliens know him from his Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik days. Like many Outkast fans, I was ampt about the joint. Is it befitting to call this a hint to an Outkast reunion? Or was this anxiety based on Big Boi’s behalf? How does 3000 feel about this? Either way, it’s good to hear both Big and Dre on a track together. This definitely gets the barber shop talking on again.
Check out Frnak Ocean’s Pink Matter remix ft. Big Boi & Andre 3000 (Outkast).
“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.
