Trap Manny (@trapmannyhbtl) - "Trap Seazon" LP

Though he is a fresh face in the national rap scene, Trap Manny is no rookie in the game of life. Having gained legendary status in his Bronx neighborhood via his music, Trap’s career trajectory was stifled due to several jail stints. Garnering a co-sign from Hip Hop heavyweight Max B, who had similar struggles with the law, Max offered Trap advice on maintaining artistic integrity and remaining steadfast with his musical aspirations. Tapping into his inner sense of resiliency, Trap Manny reconnected with his longtime friend and fellow Bronx native Don Q, landing him a deal with A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s Highbridge the Label. Trap’s first few releases showcased his ability to turn gritty stories from his life into bouncy cuts with strained yet soulful melodies that resonated with listeners. Now on the brink of stardom, Trap Manny looks to carve out his own niche with the release of his debut project via Atlantic Records titled Trap Seazon. Featuring contributions from his Highbridge comrades A Boogie and Don Q, the 14-track opus is an encapsulation of his life. Akin to the haunting tales by the iconic DMX, Trap Seazon harkens back to a grimier era of New York City meshed with a new age sensibility. "Empty The Clip," which is the lead single from the project recently had its visuals premiered via HotNewHipHop and "Alone," which features A Boogie has already been staking its claims as one of the standout tracks. In support of the release, Trap Manny is set to perform at various cities throughout the northeast and midwest: June 30 - Common Ground Music Festival - Lansing, MI July 2 - Henry W. Maier Festival Park - Milwaukee, WI July 21 - Mad City Festival - Foxborough, MA August 17 - Funk Master Flex Car Show - Bronx, NY August 30 - Soulfrito Fest - Brooklyn, NY Aug 31 - Hot 104.7 Summer Jam - Portland, ME October 13 - Rolling Loud New York - New York, NY October 25 - Powerhouse Philly - Philadelphia, PA October 26 - Power 105.1 Powerhouse - Newark, NJ

Gansta Marcus Talks The Future Of Rap Music

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Music has changed inn many way. When I was growing up, we had +Rap City and then went to +106 and Park. Now +BLACK ENTERTAINMENT TELEVISION is doing reality t.v.

I don't know what the future holds for the rap game. Rappers in the gay community is having there time right now, but if the trend of change continues, then this will also come to pass. Not only have we had rap, but swanger music from Texas, snap and dance types from Atlanta, and swing music from the Midwest.

We don't know what the future holds for the music industry or how it will change. I feel the next thing coming is Swagger. It's something that's always been hot and I believe will remain.

Why Prejudice Still Lives

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) I am a African American who was born in Mississippi. I have encountered various types of racism. One thing I have learned is that it's all in how you were raised. I get criticized because I am married to a white woman and have mixed children.

I have come to find out that there are more blacks prejudice than whites. For some reason, blacks believe that whites owe them something for bringing them here! But I say Thank You! Without the white man bringing our ancestors to America, I would not be able to own my own house website, or business.

When people talk about cops killing blacks, I turn the other cheek. Due to the fact that I feel cops are afraid of blacks just as blacks are afraid of cops. We are almost in a civil war, not because of whats going on, but how the media portrays it. Why is it than when a black person get shot by a cop it's blasted all over the media? But when the same thing happens to a white person, you hear nothing.

I'm not taking any sides, just giving my 2 cents on the matter.

Michael Jordan Is Now A Billionaire

+Forbes has just named +Michael Jordan a billionaire. According to Forbes, Michael Jordan is now a billionaire due to an increase in his stake of the Charlotte Hornets to 89.5% from 80%. Sports bankers say the Hornets are presently worth between $600 million and $625 million USD. 

The Milwaukee Bucks sold for $550 million USD in May, and they are considered the least valuable team in the league. Forbes‘ net worth figure for Jordan uses the $600 million figure. The Hornets have $135 million USD of debt, which makes Jordan’s equity in the team worth $416 million USD.

Former Microsoft CEO To Buy Clippers For $2 Billion

Former Microsoft chief executive Steve Ballmer won a frenetic bidding war for ownership of the Los Angeles Clippers, with his $2-billion offer setting a record price for an NBA team, The Times has learned. Ballmer, who was chief executive of Microsoft for 14 years, was chosen over competitors that included Los Angeles-based investors Tony Ressler and Steve Karsh and a group that included David Geffen and executives from the Guggenheim Group, the Chicago-based owner of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The sale price is almost four times the highest previous NBA franchise sale price — the $550 million paid earlier this month for the Milwaukee Bucks. It is second only to the Dodgers’ 2012 sale for $2.1 billion as the highest price for any sports team in North America. The prospective sale by Clippers co-owner Shelly Sterling comes five days ahead of an NBA hearing to oust her family from ownership following a controversy in which Donald Sterling insulted African-Americans in a secret audio recording.

The tentative deal still must receive the blessing of her husband, Donald Sterling, who has waxed and waned on the question of whether he would allow his wife to sell the team he has controlled for more than three decades. The deal also needs the eventual approval of 29 other NBA owners, but is expected to clear that hurdle as long as Ballmer reaffirms his pledge to keep the team in Los Angeles and not move it to Seattle, where he lives.

Most Valuable NBA Franchise

The +New York Knicks has been named the most valuable NBA Franchise. Forbes released its annual list of richest NBA teams, and the Knicks come in first at $1.4 billion. New York is one of three teams in the league that are worth over a billion dollars, with the runners-up on the list being the Los Angeles Lakers ($1.35 billion) and Chicago Bulls ($1 billion). The top five of the list is rounded out by the Boston Celtics ($875 million) and Brooklyn Nets ($780 million).

A major part of the profitability of the Knicks and Lakers is their television revenue. In addition to being massively popular global brands, both teams essentially control their own television networks, the Knicks’ MSG and the Lakers’ Time Warner Cable SportsNet. Forbes reported that the Lakers have the richest local television agreement in the NBA, worth $3.6 billion over 20 years.

Coming in last on the list are the Milwaukee Bucks, worth an estimated $405 million, well below the league average of $634 million. The two-time defending NBA champions, the Miami Heat, are the seventh-most profitable team in the league at $770 million, and the team with the current best record in the league, the Indiana Pacers, come in at No. 22, with a $475 million total value.
