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.
Promoting Your Music
A good way to make a few dollars while promoting your music is to sell Cd’s at your gigs. If you are on a small budget, just invest in some Cd sleeves and sheet labels. Have a friend or business partner to setup a display with your promotional material and Cd’s. Sell your music at an affordable price and I’m sure some of the spectators will support your movement.
“I Am Your Leader” by Nicki Minaj produced by Hit Boy is one of the nicest tracks on her new album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded Young Money . This song features Maybach Music’s CEO Rick Ross and Cam’ron. Nicki squeezed in a Lil Kim diss in her verse while Rozay followed her with a dope verse of his own. Cam’ron verse was good, maybe this song will put him back on the scene for a while. Check out the video below.
Rick Ross has just dropped a new video for the single “Amsterdam” from the album God Forgives, I Don’t.
In this video, Rozay features Notorious actress Antonique Smith as the co-star. The glamorous lifestyle of a boss is depicted in this visual showcasing the estates of a flashy millionaire.

Once friends turned foes. How? Over a chick. What chick might that be? Hi Rihanna. Perhaps she’s feeling herself right now, enjoying the beef between her former ex-boyfriend and fling, Chris
Breezy and Drizzy. But how is it that MMG artist, Meek Mill is involved? Word says that it wasn’t a brawl between Drake and Chris Brown yet between Brown and Mill. A rep for Drake tells TMZ … “Drake did not participate in any wrongdoing of any kind last night at W.i.P. He was on his way out of the club when the altercation began.” The rep adds, “[Drake] did not engage in any activity which resulted in injury to person or damage to property.” (TMZ) So what really happened?
Check out the fighting footage below.

Will there be another Outkast album? Probably, probably not. But will 3 Stacks keep rhyming? Hmmm! Possibly. Seems that the rapping poet of Outkast is getting his inspiration to keep rhyming back these days, according to an interview with The FADER.
“Now I talk to Drake, and I know he had to be like ten when he was listening to what we were doing. You just never know who’s listening until you hear a connection. I didn’t even know Drake dug my music, I just liked him as a rapper because I felt he had a balance. I didn’t even know that he grew up listening to me. But it’s cool to know that it’s a real lineage thing. I’m happy to see Kanye and [Lil] Wayne and Drake and all these new artists. They inspire me in a way because they reach back and they say, “Hey, we want to get you on these songs.” I don’t rap every day. I don’t sit around writing raps like that. And when these artists call, it’s kind of like they get me going. And I really wanna just be good for them. I want to impress them or have them be happy to say, “Okay, he did well on my song.” I don’t want to be messing their song up.” (The FADER)
Hopefully this inspires him to call up Big Boi for another Outkast album.
