Azealia Banks Speaks The Raw And Real On Grand Hustle Family, T.I., Iggy Azalea, Black Music And More (Video)

I honestly don’t know much about Azealia Banks’ music, but I’ve seen her commentary on twitter about quite a number of things & I’ve often retweeted a few things she said on social media that proved to me that she’s wise & aware beyond her 23 years. When I saw everyone talking about her recent interview it piqued my interest to see what the fuss was about. After watching this interview I’m more of a fan of Azealia Banks the person even though I’m not too familiar with her music.

Get Hard (Trailer)

When you get hit with a bid, it’s about getting it together before you go in. Well, if you are a millionaire hedge fund manager like James (Will Ferrell) – about to do time in San Quentin – you have money. So, it’s not a “credit” problem you’d have; it’s a “cred” problem. But who can a guy like James turn to to get his “cred” up? How about Darnell (Kevin Hart)?

Hilarity ensues as Darnell helps James to “Get Hard” so he can…

(What? Why do y’all keep saying “pause” maaaan? Hahahaaaaa. Watch the damn trailer ya pervy ‘phobes.)

Mega Ran x The Regiment – “Venting” (Prod. By El Huervo) [Video]

How can the thing you love be so… annoying?

He quit his gig as a teacher. That was easy. Life as a worthwhile, fulfilled rap artist (as Mega Ran)… not so much. The lyrical heat driving that fire within needed an outlet. Hence, “Venting” (produced by El Huervo). The song comes from the EP “A Gamers Anthem” with Detroit’s Mega Ran (aka Random) and The Regiment.

100 Orgasms A Day: Freak Accident Leaves Man With A Debilitating Disorder (Video)

You read the title. It brought you here. A hundred orgasms a day…debilitating???

It is unbelievable, but the video segment above will help you believe…and understand. But before you completely understand, your disbelief may give way to a couple of chuckles. You’re human, and this is a very strange thing. One that will likely make you uncomfortable and maybe frighten you a bit; a real example of too-much-of-a-good thing made all too real. It is not good.

Read on. Meet Dale. Try to understand.

A heartbroken man suffers from 100 orgasms each day – but does not enjoy a single one. Dale Decker is the first man to ever speak publicly about Persistent Genital Arousal Syndrome – a condition he developed in September 2012 when he slipped a disc in his back while getting out of a chair. On his way to the hospital he suffered his first five orgasms and has been given no respite from them since. The painful pelvic episodes have left him housebound and isolated through fear of suffering a public orgasm. Dale lives in Two Rivers, Wisconsin with his wife April and two sons Christian, 12 and Tayten, 11. While she does everything she can to support him, April, 33 is finding Dale’s condition just as hard to live with as he is. The horrific condition has cost Dale many of his friends and the relationship he shares with his sons has also been affected. Despite suffering from a near constant erection Dale and April rarely have sex.

Kurupt Gets Enraged Over The ‘King Of New York’ Title Both He & Kendrick Lamar Used (Video)

“In this clip from his exclusive interview with VladTV, Kurupt went ballistic over New York’s defensive response to Kendrick Lamar’s “I’m the King of New York” line on his “Control” verse.

Kurupt originally spit the “King of NY” line on the 2010 track “Get Bizy,” which also featured verses from Kendrick, Terrace Martin, and Bad Lucc. When asked about the meaning behind his original line, Kurupt replied, “That means I’m the f**king worst, and that’s all it meant.” Shortly after giving an explanation behind his line, Kurupt went off over how quick New Yorkers are to get offended by any line that mentions their city.

He explained that “King of New York,” is actually “a f**king movie” from 1990 about a drug lord named Frank White who returns from prison to take control of his streets once again. Kurupt is extremely angry by how quickly New Yorkers are to jump to the conclusion that anything mentioned about their city is a diss of some kind. He emphasized that there is no problem between the West Coast and New York, and that every state within the United States is ultimately a part of a family.

He did, however, state that if anything were to happen to Kendrick, or anyone else from the West Coast, that there would certainly be severe repercussions, but ultimately it is New York who is always quick to ignite drama between the two coasts even when the West has no intention of starting problems.”

DJ Dug Boogie + Children Benefit

dj dug boogie + fam - jayforce.comAs you may have heard, Atlanta based DJ Dug Boogie’s wife, Linett Wilder lost her battle with Lupus on Tuesday. The hip hop community is coming together to raise some funds to help Dug & his children through this difficult time.

On Tuesday December 23rd, there will be a benefit concert at the Apache Cafe in Atlanta

Performances by
Clan Destined
Boog Brown
DJ Nervex
DJ Gee Supreme
Hosted by Fort Knox

We are suggesting a minimum of $10 donation at the door, but any support at all is greatly appreciated.

“This fundraiser is on behalf of my friend and DJ comrade Dug Boogie. Dug Boogie has been a prominent figure amongst the hip hop DJs in Atlanta and needs our help. His beloved wife Linett passed away from complications of Lupus on the morning of 12/16/14. Now what you may not know is Linett and Dug adopted Linette’s niece and nephew a few years after their mother passed away.

Now that Linett is gone, our homie Dug Boogie needs assistance for the two children that he’s become a dad to. Fortunately, he has the burial costs covered but I figured we in the hip hop community can offer some extra help to relieve some financial stress while he segways into being a single parent.”

Thanks in advance,
Rashuri Rasyrious

There is also a Go Fund Me page set up here:

Comedy: Racism Insurance Commercial (Video)

Oops, I was racist. Black guy come herrre!

Bwaaaahahahaaaaa! I will not ruin this for you, if you have not seen these already, but get ready to watch a triple-shot of comedy the form of ‘State Farm’ commercial spoofs. Lately comedians have quipped that it’s good for a Black person to have a White friend, and for a White person to have a Black friend, to bail her/him out of troublesome situations from time-to-time. Nothing like having that kind of ‘insurance.’

I dunno what these plans cost; but they are worth it. And this commercial series… priceless!

Lupe Fiasco – “Madonna” (And Other Mothers In The Hood) feat. Nikki Jean [Prod. By DJ Dahi]

Momma said, “My son never been no trouble…”
Lupe Fiasco

Complex rhyming, rhythms, and rap epitomize “Madonna.” Not the singer… You better NOT think Lupe would be dropping the a single off his “Tetsuo & Youth” project (due out January 20, 2015) just about a pop star. This is that thoughtful, beautiful Fiasco work. Listen.
