Has Rock-N-Roll Always Been Apart Of Hip-Hop Culture?


Yes Hip Hop has always been apart of the Rock culture! Rock and Rap song were some of the best ever made still today! For an institution that is dedicated to immortalizing rock and roll’s greatest heroes, there are many inductees in there who are not quite typically thought of as rock artists.

You’ve got Grandmaster Flash, Run-DMC, Miles Davis, Madonna, and Tupac in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The confusion behind these inductees lies not with the quality of their work, but rather the categorization of it.

There are four other artists who have been nominated but have yet to be inducted—Afrika Bambaataa, LL Cool J, Eric B. and Rakim, N.W.A—and four more groups who have been considered for the ballot but who have not yet been nominated—Boogie Down Productions, De La Soul, the Sugarhill Gang, and the Treacherous Three.

Name Your Favorite Track From Wu-Tang Clan


Do you have a favorite track from Wu-Tang Clan? If so, what is it?

Wu-Tang Clan is an American hip hop group and collective formed in the New York City borough of Staten Island in 1992, originally composed of rapper-producer RZA and rappers GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa.

Many say that the best rapper in Wu is easily Ghostface Killah, yeah Method Man had a great voice but he has 1 great solo project, ODB is one of a kind but to say that he is the best rapper in the group isn't true, he definitely had the most presence.

What Happened To Three 6 Mafia?


One of the greatest rap groups of all times will remain legendary until the end of time. Three 6 Mafia is an American hip hop group formed in 1991 from Memphis, Tennessee. Their music has been variously described as Southern hip hop, Crunk, hardcore rap, horrorcore and gangsta rap.

Founded by Juicy J, Lord Infamous and DJ Paul back in 1991, they started their music career as Backyard Posse prior to settling on their current name. Through their own record company, Prophet Entertainment, they eventually started to record and release a number of extended-plays during their initial years together.

One of the most popular hip hop groups of their time, they’ve won several awards throughout their years together. In 2006, Three 6 Mafia was awarded an Oscar for “Best Achievement in Music Written for Motion Pictures” for their hit single, It’s Hard Out Here for a Pump, which was used as the theme song for the indie film, Hustle & Flow (2005).

Looking at their discography, one would notice that their last album release was that of Watch What U Wish… back in 2015ーwhere is the hip hop group now? On October 9, 2015, Koopsta Knicca unexpectedly died from a brain aneurysm, making him the second member of Three 6 Mafia to pass away (the first being Lord Infamous, a founding member who passed away in 2013 from a heart attack).


Fans of Memphis' Three 6 Mafia were undoubtedly excited back in 2013 when DJ Paul announced that five of the original six members would be reuniting for a series of new releases. Despite this back to basics approach, many fans were disappointed to hear that Juicy J would no longer be appearing as an official member of the crew.

In a HHDX exclusive interview, Three 6 Mafia's DJ Paul addressed his colleague's claims regarding why Juicy is no longer working with the group.

"I got a lot of love for Pat and always will--we made a lot of hits together," DJ Paul began. "You know, [Pat’s] 'Don’t Save Her,' I wrote and produced it for him. It’s my voice on the hook. Me and Juicy produced Mista Don’t Play [Everythangs Workin] with him, every single project--all his albums. Every single Project Pat album cover, I physically hand-drew and designed myself. Every single one, from Ghetty Green to Layin Da Smack Down to Mista Don’t Play--all of them. I was the one on the phone with Pen & Pixel at my mother’s house, using the fax machine, faxing hand-drawn pictures to them. So, whatever. The whole thing’s just funny and I don’t know where none of it come from.”

Despite their different paths, Paul maintains that he and Juicy remain good friends.

Why Migos May Be The Best Music Group Ever


Earlier this year, the Migos claimed that they were the 'biggest group ever'. Offset says Migos has surpassed all other musical groups in history. Who would you say is the greatest rap group of all time?

Migos now have 15 simultaneous entries on Billboard’s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop songs chart, which breaks the previous record held by none other than the Migos at 12 songs.

Culture II has also propelled them to tie a record held by a band you may know, The Beatles. With 14 simultaneous tracks on the Hot 100, they have tied the long-standing record held by The Beatles for the most simultaneous entries on the chart by a group.

Migos has released a gang of hits including "Narcos" and "Call Casting." Migos is a hip hop group from USA formed in 2009. There are three members of this group who are known by their stage names; Offset, Takeoff and Quavo.

No other music group has moved the DJ's and crowds like Migos have. The group has made history in the music business that will last a lifetime. Their rise to fame came very fast and is lasting longer than what most thought was going to go.

Portland Rap legend Vursatyl The Great drops the Official Music Video for his smooth new single "I Don't Want You Anymore" featuring Lunden Benard with production by Jake One. 

A founding member of the iconic Portland group Lifesavas, Vursatyl has long been known for delivering heavy-hitting bars and well-crafted verses but the real fans know Vurs also has some vocals in the tuck! On "I Don't Want You Anymore" Vursatyl links up with another North West Hip Hop GOAT - Jake One and reinvents himself with smooth R&B vocals, setting the mood for up and coming artist Lunden Benard to the slam dunk his feature. 

Never afraid to share the spotlight Vursatyl tells the story of a lover sneaking out to find what the single life has to offer, all while leaving enough room for Lunden Benard to come through with his slick 16. A true student of the Golden Era of Hip Hop, Lunden is not only a rising wordsmith but also a producer crafting his art with influences of 90's East Coast rap with an updated 2020-feel.

"I Don't Want You Anymore" gives us a nostalgic feel while still staying highly original in the storyline and delivery of lyrics. Lunden Benard would make Slick Rick and Q-Tip proud with his vivid lyrics and timely cadence, giving room for the beat to complement his lyrics at multiple points throughout the song. 

Jake One delivers a classic soundscape for Vursatyl and Lunden to each tell their story of a wandering lover and how to move on from a toxic partner. A soulful and playful single, "I Don't Want You Anymore" marks over 20 years in the rap game for Vursatyl The Great and shows, like a fine wine, his art is only getting better with time.

Young So - Back on

 

Young Soldier fights battle of good and evil with new single ‘Back On’

SAN FERNANDO VALLEY, CA – Young Soldier, AKA Young So the Tiger, started playing piano at age 13 and hasn’t looked back since. Today, he’s one of the fastest-rising young talents in the industry, and his new music is lighting up the West Coast in major ways. His latest single “Back On” has a cool West Coast sunny day kind of vibe that’s a perfect introduction to the upcoming warmer months. It’s West Coast Hip Hop that’s full of positivity and as such, it’s not your normal kind of Hip Hop.

“It’s a song about being on the West Coast and living the best life,” Young So said. “The one thing that sets me apart from anyone else out there is that I don’t talk about money or clothes or cars or sex or guns or hoes or jewelry. I talk about the truth of the life we have – the struggles between good and evil and the decisions we make that lead to bad things or good things. I’m more of a spiritual lyricist. You don’t find that often, especially in mainstream music today.”

The Story Of Wu-Tang Clan


In the summer of 1993, the Wu-Tang Clan emerged from the slums of Staten Island and took the hip-hop world by storm. Their legacy spanned over a decade, garnering fans worldwide and generating sales in excess of $50 million.

Back in the day, Method Man used to be a cleaner at the Statue of Liberty. The symbolism feels apt because the story of the Staten Island hip-hop collective is the American dream as it should be written.

Wu-Tang Clan is an American hip hop group and collective formed in the New York City borough of Staten Island in 1992, originally composed of rapper-producer RZA and rappers GZA, Ol' Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa.

Sip Hop Named New Arthor

Sip Hop was born in Cleveland, Mississippi Feb. 17 1984, always had two things that he always love was basketball and love for Hip Hop. He fell in love with Hip Hop as a child for rappers like Rahkim, Kool Moe Dee and KRS-One but it was emcees like Nas inspired him to be a rapper.

At the age of 13 Sip started to really go for the rap flow as this was the time when rappers like Bone Thugs and Twista was running the rap show, so at eight grade Sip start joining the cypher rapping even though it was just for fun at that time. By tenth grade Sip started to put the basketball down and go for the rapping thing even though from the delta in Mississippi was really hard to get heard. So then I had to move elsewhere just to connect with the right musicians.

after completing High School That's when i met Shockhouse Productions in Chicago, IL from a rapper name Sleepy Boy. He was forming this group called Face Off with 2 more fellas in the group, sleepy asked if i can join with the group even though i was with the group going to a month. After the situation with leaving the group he decided to go solo in the booth at The Shockhouse. Feeling like a real rapper in this booth Sip reply.

After that moment, thats when i started to link up with this Promoter and rapper Gansta Marcus. Every since then, independent minded thats known in hits like Swag On 100 with Reese Feat me on the track and also with the mixtape  titled Cool Fresh and Versatile with Songs like Mississippi Time To Shine, Still Hustling and Hold Up Feat..Gansta Marcus. The rest is history..

Hip-Hop Mixtape Site Being Sued

A number of the largest record labels have sued Spinrilla, a popular hip-hop mixtape website and app. Sony Music Entertainment, Warner Bros. Records and Universal Music Group accuse Spinrilla’s operators of copyright infringement and claim damages that could reach millions of dollars.

Mixtapes have been part of the hip-hop culture for years, and one of such most popular online services today is Spinrilla. It allows users to stream and download tracks from its site or mobile app and accounts for hundreds of thousands of monthly users. The service got sued by the music labels, which claim that Spinrilla facilitates copyright infringement, allegedly offering over 21,000 tracks of music artists such as Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West.

The plaintiffs estimated that the Spinrilla Android app had been downloaded and installed several million times and was among the most popular music apps offered on the Google Play store. However, Spinrilla is not just another pirate website: the service was incorporated in the US, earns money through advertising and recently partnered with AOL.

At the same time, the RIAA believes that Spinrilla has crossed a line by offering copyrighted music without permission and hopes that the record labels will be compensated through the lawsuit and that an injunction will take Spinrilla offline. The copyright holders point out that consumers have access to millions of music tracks from innovative legitimate platforms and services that pay creators, and Spinrilla’s way of business has no place in today’s music marketplace.

Young Thug Named The Real Life Gangstalicious

Young Thug’s sexual orientation has been one of fascination to both his fans and detractors for quite some time. Thug, born Jeffrey Williams, habitually, and with a supreme sense of I-don’t-give-a-f**kness, indulges in behavior that many in the hip-hop community have seen fit to deem “sus.” For example, he has a fondness for calling his closest friends “hubby,” and also recently shared that around 90 percent of his wardrobe is comprised of women’s clothing. Of course none of these things are indicative of Thug’s sexuality or gender identity, and by his own admission, there should be no question that he identifies as a heterosexual male. Nevertheless, his gratuitous displays of affection towards his male friends, and unfettered love of blouses and skinny jeans, have managed to generate substantial dispute.

 Last week, producers London on da Track and Beatmonster Marc, who are affiliates of Thug, added fuel to the fire when they suddenly found themselves embroiled in a gay porn scandal. During a studio session that allegedly included Thug and rappers Kid Ink and Tyga, Marc posted an Instagram video intended to showcase the crew hard at work. The innocent recording quickly attracted the biting commentary of idle twitter fingers when a few keen eyes noticed what appeared to be a bit of male-on-male action taking place on an oversized television screen.

The conclusion many jumped to was that the group had been participating in some sort of group Netflix and chill scenario that had somehow turned 50 shades of homoerotic. Marc quickly refuted the claims, stating they had simply been watching Game of Thrones, which to be fair, has been known to feature its fair share of same-sex loving.

However, given the curiosity surrounding Young Thug’s sexuality, some took the incident as confirmation that Thug was indeed hiding his true preferences. Even if he is, that is of course his right and prerogative. However, that is only one possibility. Another is that Young Thug is simply so comfortable being Young Thug that heteronormative gender distinctions mean nothing to him.
It all combines to make Young Thug something of an anomaly to many. In the same way Riley was forced to reevaluate his perceptions of masculinity and its role in hip-hop, those who come into contact with Young Thug often subconsciously or consciously do the same. With each new outfit or Instagram post, Thug manages to incite debate around what is acceptable as a man, and as a hip-hop artist; he’s also unintentionally (or intentionally) made people question what these supposed acceptable patterns of behavior even have to do with an artist’s ability to make music (nothing, really). And despite, or maybe because of his non-conformist attitude, Thug is successful.

Seeing Thug blur and at times flat out erase the lines of what many perceive as appropriate masculine behavior, and in turn seeing the confusion it causes, is like watching an episode of the The Boondocks play out in reality. But instead of desperately clinging to the status quo in order hide a secret like Gangstalicious, Thug gleefully flouts the status quo. The outcome is still the same in that both the ficitional Gangstalicious and the very real Young Thug cause people to question pre-conceieved notions about gender and sexuality.

How Jay-Z created a hip-hop path to luxury

 



This past Monday, rapper Jay-Z unveiled a deal with LVMH to expand his Armand de Brignac champagne globally. The next day, Oatly, the Swedish vegan-milk group in which he has invested, took its first step towards a $10bn initial public offering.


Jay-Z has further tasks to occupy him, apart from his own music. He still heads Roc Nation, a music and sports talent agency that includes Rihanna among its clients. He is also “chief visionary officer” of a special-purpose company backed by Roc Nation that acquired two Californian cannabis groups in November. And so on.


This year is the 25th anniversary of Jay-Z’s first album Reasonable Doubt, released on his own Roc-A-Fella Records label. Some have lasted and some not, but Jay-Z was ahead of his time in business in a way that is only now clear. “Put me anywhere on God’s green Earth, I triple my worth,” he once rapped. The deal with LVMH, under which the world’s leading luxury group has taken 50 per cent of Armand de Brignac — the “Ace of Spades” champagne praised in his lyrics — is proof of that.
