Memphis Bleek appeared on New York City’s Power 105 and talked about the Jay Z and Nas Beef from the early 2000s. If you don’t know, Bleek had a lot to do with that. He reflects on the rap battle:
This should be a interesting look at the underbelly of the music industry. Jimmy Rosemond aka Jimmy “Henchmen”. Check out the trailer:
Soooo, last night I forwent my usual sports indulging and watched VH1’s “The Breaks”. Based on the novel THE BIG PAYBACK: THE HISTORY OF THE BUSINESS OF HIP-HOP BY DAN CHARNAS The 2 hour film stars Mack Wilds, Afton Williamson, Wood Harris and more. It tells the story of 3 individuals trying to get their “break” in the recording industry. One as a producer, another as an executive, and the other as a aspiring program director. Here are my thoughts on the film:

Do I really have to type why this was a dope record? Here is a good reason why we want Detox so bad. This week’s Re-Releases is Dr. Dre’s “Still D.R.E.”.
Everyone is inspired by something. Though the subject matter may be different, Kendrick’s new album clearly takes some inspiration from Suga Free. This week’s Re-Release, pimpin’, is Suga Free’s “Thinking”. I promise I didn’t rhyme on purpose. Lol!
One of those Pac records that I’ll never get sick of. Given the 20th anniversary of the “Me Against the World” album, it’s only right. This week’s Re-Release is 2 Pac’s “Dear Mama”.
If you’ve just discovered the joys of Hip-Hop music….you’ve got some homework to do. WatchMojo.com put together this list of the Top 10 Rappers Who Fell Off. Do you agree?
It’s Women’s History Month and The Lady of Rage is a woman you’d never forget. Her legendary verses on those classic Death Row albums earned her respect from the West to the East Coast. This week’s Re-Release is The Lady of Rage’s “Afro Puffs”.
I dug this record when it was just a Jay Z freestyle on a mixtape. Fab did it justice when he brought it to his album too. This week’s Re-Release is Fabolous featuring Jay Z “When The Money Goes”.
One of the best kid Hip-Hop groups of all time. Sure they had ghostwriters (i.e. Treach of Naughty By Nature) and tons of help with the beats. Nevertheless, you couldn’t front on the music. This week’s Re-Release is Da Youngsta’s “Crewz Pop”.
