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:
Happy New Year People! Best of 2015 out of the way…. Soooo, what’s new? Not much. Lol!
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…
Look, this is Ice Cube’s best album. Hands down. This is an experience. An album that speaks to every young male in the hood. Racist? Naw. Reality? Yes. The beats, the rhymes, the concepts…the singles. One of my favorite songs from a classic album. This week’s throwback is Ice Cube’s “Steady Mobbin”.
