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:
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:
2015 is just about gone and it was a very dope year for hip-hop music! It seemed as if a lot of artist cared about their projects this year. You didn’t get a collection of singles. What we got were Albums/Mixtapes with cohesive concepts, dope beats, and thought provoking lyrics. It was hard to come up with just 5 but, THESE WERE THE BEST FOR THE YEAR 2015…
I make my return (again) to where it all started….TONIGHT! And every Friday on WEAA 88.9FM in B-more (Tune-In App) or listen Live via http://weaa.org Midnight to 5am 2015! Let’s go!
2014 was a very dope year for hip-hop. We saw a rise in the discussion of race and gender in hip-hop, the return of the Schmoney Puff Dance, and the rise of battle rap leagues. Special shout out to Vlad.TV for bringing attention to a number issues surrounding hip-hop. The music released in 2014 has been inspiring, and I hope it continues in 2015. It was really hard deciding what music would make this list. You really can’t go wrong with anything here. I have 5 albums/mixtapes that stood above the rest this year. I can say without a doubt, THESE WERE THE BEST FOR THE YEAR 2014…
