Why New York Has Always Been Ground Breaking For Hip -hop Artist

 


Although 50, and Jay-Z may wear the crown as kings of New York, there surrounded by a number of thriving rappers like Nas who could make the claim and not be far off.


The Big Apple can also count on Biggie, Rakim, Public Enemy, The Beastie Boys, KRS-One, Mos Def, Slick Rick, Nikki Minaj, Run-D.M.C., Mase, and Wu Tang among its influential children, and that's just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to rappers from New York.


New York spawned some of the greatest rappers. The enduring spirit of New York hip-hop is unbridled confidence, limitless audacity. New York—and the Bronx specifically—is the birthplace of hip-hop.


The birthplace of hip-hop, mecca of the universe and even “the city that never sleeps” are some of the descriptive phrases that New York City is known for. On a hot summer night in the Bronx in 1973, DJ Kool Herc changed music forever. At his sister's back-to-school party on August 11—44 years ago today—he introduced what's since become recognized as hip-hop to an extremely enthusiastic audience.

What Kind Of Deal Is R. Kelly Former Manager Trying To Make?

 


A former manager for singer R. Kelly, who faces criminal charges of his own, is in the middle of plea negotiations, prosecutors revealed at a status conference Friday.


Donnell Russell was indicted in October on one count of interstate stalking for allegedly contacting an anonymous "Jane Doe" victim in R. Kelly's case "with the intent to harass and intimidate" her and her family, according to the indictment filed in the Eastern District of New York.


He pleaded not guilty to the charge in October, court documents show. Russell was also charged by criminal complaint in the Southern District of New York with threatening physical harm by interstate communication and conspiracy to threaten physical harm after Russell allegedly placed a phone call to a Manhattan theater to prevent the December 4, 2018 screening of "Surviving R. Kelly," according to a criminal complaint. He allegedly told the theater there was an armed person inside, prepared to begin shooting, prosecutors said. His attorney in that case, Annalisa Miron, said Russell pleaded not guilty to those charges.

Judge Makes Racist Comment

Check this out! A Utica City, New York judge was accused of denigrating Blacks and others. Despite his actions, he got to keep his job. Popeo is alleged to have used a racial slur after a session in his court when he asked an African-American attorney if he knew what New York City Blacks call Black people from upstate New York. When the lawyer said he had no response to the question Popeo posed, the judge allegedly said, “country n***ers.”

There have been other accusations against the Popeo, such as in 2011, he twice referred to a prosecutor as a “cigar store Indian” for not being more aggressive in court. Again in 2011, Popeo came under fire after he was criticized for telling a public defender to “shut up” before then lashing out at a defendant who had smirked in the courtroom. “You’re standing there with a grin that I would love to get off the bench and slap off your face,” Popeo bellowed.

Despite the justice’s courtroom antics, the New York Commission on Judicial Conduct decided that Popeo was not being racially insensitive with the Native American insult. As far as the alleged “country n****rs” comment, the Commission concluded that the insults could not be verified because three other witnesses did not hear the remarks, and Popeo did not ‘fess up to making the statement.

Jennifer Lopez Debuts at $33.2 Million in Hustlers Movie


The new movie is now playing and Hustlers has danced its way to a massive second-place opening weekend. The STXfilms release exceeded expectations to open to an estimated $33.2 million across 3,250 theaters.

Hustlers, which is based on a New York Magazine article follows a band of former strippers, led by Lopez’s Ramona, who come together to turn the tables on their Wall Street Clients. In addition to Lopez and Wu’s buzzy leading roles, the film also stars Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, and features memorable appearances from Cardi B, Lizzo, and Usher.

STX reports that the opening weekend audience was 67 percent female and 69 percent of the film’s audience was over the age of 25.

The film, budgeted at just $20 million, became the rare recent hit that was neither a sequel nor a reboot nor part of a series. It was also the biggest opening ever for a live-action Lopez film, and had numbers comparable to co-star Constance Wu's hit "Crazy Rich Asians," whose long-term box office success could be a model for "Hustlers."

"This is exactly the kind of movie that every studio dreams of producing, because it's going to be profitable, prestigious and a long-term performer," said Paul Dergarabedian, senior media analyst for Comscore. "A lot of original type movies that are non-franchise non-sequels, many of them have had a rough go this year. This is a nice counter-balance to that."

Based on a New York magazine piece, "Hustlers," written and directed by Lorene Scafaria, tells the true story of a group of New York City strippers who, put out by the recession's effects on their Wall Street patrons, start a side con that involves drugging their wealthy marks and running up exorbitant credit card bills that they get a cut of.

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

Cadillac Returning Back To Michigan


Cadillac will relocate is headquarters back to Detroit from New York City. Cadillac moved its HQ to New York under former boss Johan de Nysschen. Cadillac on Wednesday confirmed that the automaker has decided to relocate the luxury brand's headquarters back to Michigan.

Detroit is great, but it can be an echo chamber, especially in a company as large and storied as General Motors. The problem is that Cadillac still relies heavily on Detroit.

Cadillac is returning its global headquarters to metro Detroit after three years in New York's upscale SoHo neighborhood. The move contradicts General Motors' stated plans in the near future.

A GM spokesman confirmed that Cadillac will move to a location near GM’s technical center in Warren, Mich., north of Detroit. A probable location would be the former headquarters of longtime GM ad agency partner Lowe Campbell Ewald in Warren, Mich., north of Detroit. GM bought the 150,000-square-foot building for $2 million in 2014.

"The move will place the Cadillac brand team closer to those responsible for the new Cadillacs, including design, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing, ensuring full integration of Cadillac's global growth strategy."

Michael Vick Signs New Deal

The +New York Jets has just signed Michael Vick to a $5 Million dollar contract. He was widely regarded as the top free-agent quarterback, but he didn’t generate a lot of interest on the open market. In fact, the Jets were his first visit.

After finishing last season on the Philadelphia Eagles‘ bench, Vick said recently he wants to be a starter again, so he obviously feels he will have that shot in New York. He’s expected to battle incumbent Geno Smith in an open competition. Despite an encouraging finish, Smith hasn’t received a commitment as the 2014 starter.

Vick’s arrival allowed the Jets to part ways with Mark Sanchez, who was released Friday. A $2 million roster bonus was due Tuesday. Sanchez missed last season, recovering from shoulder surgery. His salary-cap charge is a prohibitive $13.1 million.

Sanchez was on the verge of claiming the starting job last preseason when he hurt his shoulder. Smith got the job by default, but there was no experienced backup — a void that may have cost the team a playoff spot. Ryan stuck with Smith through a brutal slump, in part, because there was no seasoned alternative.

Vick, who will turn 34 in June, won the Eagles’ starting quarterback job in a preseason competition with Nick Foles last summer. After pulling a hamstring in an Oct. 6 game against the New York Giants, Vick tried to return to the field three weeks later. He aggravated the injury and spent the rest of the season as Foles’ backup.

The Eagles signed Vick in 2009, after he served his 21-month federal prison sentence and was reinstated by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell. The move was controversial among fans who objected to Vick’s dogfighting activities and also because the Eagles already had Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb on their roster.
