Did T.D.E. Fall Off?


Back in the early 2010s no one would believe T.D.E by now wouldn’t be the top rap label in Hip Hop. They had a roster of hungry, young and capable talent, and what made it even more special was they weren’t some gimmicky rappers surviving of one popular song, or social media plant famous for a Tik Tok dance or one hit wonder that disappeared after a failed debut album.

President Obama Discusses His Favorite Rappers

Throughout his time in office, while working on serious strategies to help the United States continue to move forward, President Obama has also managed to keep his finger on the pulse of pop culture. Ranging from sports knowledge to music knowledge, Obama always seems to have pretty great taste.

Before his presidency officially comes to a close, President Obama has been taking the opportunity to do a few more interviews lately. During his latest one, Obama speaks with the hosts of Sway in the Morning over the phone to discuss sports, music, and politics. After naming his NBA Championship and Superbowl predictions, Obama began to discuss his favorite rappers.

When Sway asked President Obama who his favorite rappers today are (2:05 mark), he emphasized the younger generation is in great hands. "I think the young guys, Kendrick [Lamar] and Chance [the Rapper] are doing amazing work," he said. "I love Drake, and the girls love Drake, so he's commercially just doing great."

Obama also mentioned Jay Z and Kanye West, explaining that the two obviously have great track records with music. However, he reiterated that Kendrick and Chance are not just great people making great music but that he also believes they're breaking new ground.

Eminem Releases #MusicVideo for "Good Guy"

In the four-minute visual, which features Jessie Reyez, the two portray an abusive relationship. Throughout the video, Jessie and Em do some serious damage to each other as they fight in their house. Their death battle travels from inside a kitchen, to upstairs in their home and outside of their home. In the end, Reyez ends up stabbing Em to death.

This wouldn't be the first time that the Kamikaze rapper has depicted a broken relationship in a music video. Back in 2010, Eminem teamed up with Rihanna for "Love The Way You Lie," which also resulted in a tragic death.

This video drops the same day that it was announced that Eminem's "Luck You," which features Joyner Lucas, has been nominated for Best Rap Song at the 2019 Grammy Awards. Other contenders in this category include Drake, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Rock. More than 25 years into his rap career and Shady is showing no signs of slowing up.

Fleeta Partee - Dirtyrugz Video

Seattle rapper Fleeta Partee presents the Notework-directed music video for "DirtyRugz", the Bean One-produced single from Fleeta's new album LifeMuzik Deux featuring Drake/Kendrick Lamar/50 Cent/De La Soul/DOOM producer Jake One, Vitamin D, TT, C-Note and Lord Sith. A child of Black Panther party members, Fleeta portrays his "big uncle" C.D. P. Green in "Dirtyrugz and the three trailers leading up to the video: "Hygiene 101" (watch), "The Seattle Shuffle" (watch) and "Mackin Lessons 101" (watch). "'Dirtyrugz'  is slang/euphemism for drugs," says Fleeta. 

"The term ooriginated from the big homie Ishmael Butler of Shabazz Palaces. A dirty rug can be used to mask aesthetically unappealing  spots in one's living space,as are drugs used to mask ones pain, anger, or sadness in their life. In the song 'Dirtyrugz' I give you true tales of drugs and the effect it had on my family as well as the community I grew up in -the central district of Seattle."

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.

Universal Music Group Shuts Down Apple Music Exclusives

(The Wrap-Up Magazine) Apple’s iTunes, Lucian Grainge, CEO of Universal Music Group and widely regarded as the most powerful executive in the music industry, has reportedly ordered the company’s labels to stop the practice of making “exclusive” distribution deals with streaming services.

According to Bob Lefsetz, author of an influential music industry newsletter, Grainge sent out a company-wide email on Monday. UMG, which boasted seven of 2015’s 10 best-selling albums and 38.5% of the year’s recorded-music sales, will be the first major label to ban the practice, which many feel has begun to diminish rather than enhance the way music is distributed and consumed.

The directive will affect dozens of bands under the UMG umbrella, including all five of this year’s album of the year Grammy nominees: Kendrick Lamar, Taylor Swift, the Weeknd, Chris Stapleton and Alabama Shakes.

The practice of artists offering exclusives to competing streaming and download services, including Apple and Tidal, has been gaining traction this year. Both Beyoncé and Rihanna launched their recent albums through Tidal, the streaming service part-owned by Beyoncé’s husband, Jay Z.
