    Q-Tip Gives Iggy Azalea Epic Hip-Hop History Lesson On Twitter – Read Tweets Below

    Q-Tip gave Iggy Azalea an epic lesson in the origins and history of hip-hop on Saturday, tweeting at the Australian rapper who finds herself embroiled in a feud with Azealia Banks and others who resent her appropriation of black culture. Q-Tip’s long series of tweets, written directly to Azalea, were supportive and informative, a welcome example of social media being used to give context instead of simply fueling a fight. The older rapper told Azalea she has the right to

    Questlove is right, hip-hop is too silent on Ferguson and Garner

    by Demetria Irwin In the wake of numerous well-publicized incidents of black men dying at the hands of police officers, one would think that hip hop artists would be at the forefront of creative and activist endeavors in response to those tragic events. After all, hip hop brought the world passionate and justifiably angry protest tracks such as Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” and NWA’s “F*ck tha Police.”  A couple rappers have released songs directly related to these killings. J.

    J. Cole Calls Out Eminem, Justin Timberlake, & Iggy Azalea on ‘Fire Squad’

    J. Cole’s album 2014 Forest Hills Drive is not officially out yet, but it’s already sparking controversy. On the leaked track “Fire Squad,” the North Carolina rapper calls out some famous white artists for appropriating black culture.   “History repeats itself and that’s just how it goes / Same way that these rappers always bite each other’s flows / Same thing that my ni**a Elvis did with rock ‘n’ roll / Justin Timberlake, Eminem, and then Macklemore,” raps Cole, who

  • The Criminalization of Black People – A Billion Dollar Industry

    The Criminalization of Black People – A Billion Dollar Industry

    By Sebastien Elkoubyof Raprehab.com I’ve spent the past few years tirelessly writing about the music industry’s deplorable portrayal of Black people. I’ve verbally attacked record companies, radio stations, TV networks, and executives who profit from Black death and dysfunction. I’ve harshly criticized rappers like Nicki Minaj, 2 Chainz, YG, and Rick Ross for glorifying crime, sex, drugs, violence, and general ignorance. I’ve gone after clueless bloggers and hipsters for praising the very worst that rap has to offer. I’ve watched

    GHOSTFACE KILLAH’S ‘36 SEASONS’ REVENGE CONCEPT ALBUM OUT DEC 9 ON TOMMY BOY On his new release ‘36 Seasons’ (Dec 9th — Salvation/Tommy Boy), the Ghostface Killah has been re-imagined as a hip-hop superhero for the 21st century–a Staten Island vigilante inspired by a quest for personal retribution and bent on saving his community from the grips of crooked authority and urban decay. Ghostface once again delivers what fans of The Wu-Tang and his impressive solo catalog crave: desperate tales

    RZA has a genius plan to debut new Wu-Tang Clan music

      What we’re doing here, I’m very excited about. It’s a collaboration between Boombotix and Wu-Tang. We found a way to get music out to fans in a unique way, a new way, and also to bring back a tangible way to get music. There’s been nothing tangible about it. As a guy who has been in the music industry for a long time, I’ve seen how it’s gone from vinyl to cassettes to CDs to what we have now,

    No Album Has Gone Platinum In 2014

    Was A$AP Yams onto something? No seriously? After he went on his infamous rant concerning the state of music in 2014 and labeling this year as the worst in rap history, many people dubbed him insane. Yams touched on a sensitive topic, which in reality, has a plethora of artists in the game shaking in their boots. According to Billboard, there hasn’t been a single artist to go platinum thus far this year. Let that just marinate. That’s right. No

    Royce Da 5’9 & DJ Premier Are “PRhyme”…….New single!!! “Courtesy”

    BY BANDINI Royce Da 5’9″ rocks some stream of consciousness as DJ Premier lays down a gliding organ arrangement, complete with a scratch-chorus. Along the way, Nickel Nine opens up about his family’s addictions, his latest sportscar purchase, and the respect he’s out for. “This one’s for my lyricists, courtesy of my DJ.”   This may be the year of the MC/producer tandem (see: Cormega & Large Professor and Killer Mike & El-P)…   &nbsp
