RIP Nipsey Hussle (Video)

I hoped against all hope that it was not true, but CNN and major news and online reporting outlets confirm that Nipsey Hussle died tragically, the result of a shooting near his clothing store, in the area of Crenshaw and Slauson. Born Ermias Davidson Asghedom, he was 33 years old.

Beyond the obvious, what is really saddening is that while Nip lived a lifetime in his short years, he had so much more to live for. He was fresh off a well-deserved Grammy nomination and consistently recognized for his solid body of work in rap, his noteworthy successes in business, and his neighborhood activism in keeping with global thinking and local action. But he was due for more: J. Cole and Drake both shared that they were set to do songs with him and would miss his presence. He was in the final stages of buying up the block [where his business operates] and bringing peace & brotherhood to his hood. And we just posted on the committed relationship and family life he had built with Lauren London on here.

Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle died after a shooting in Los Angeles near a clothing store he owned, according to a high-ranking law enforcement official with the Los Angeles Police Department. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin discusses with DJ HeadKrack.

Such a loss for us all. In time, we will heal. But for now, we will mourn. Rest In Peace, Neighborhood Nip.

Large Professor Compares Nas vs. Jay-Z Diss Tracks From Back In The Day (Video)

Nas was on his MONSTER back in the day! “Destroy And Rebuild” though… and you just thought “Ether” was mean… that’s just the version you heard! It could have been MUCH, MUCH worse.

In this clip, Large Professor reveals that the original instrumental for “Ether” was produced by Swizz Beatz, and that Nas ultimately censored the record before he decided to release it. From there, he recalls that some of the lyrics he took out had to do with Aaliyah’s plane crash, aimed at both JAY-Z and Dame Dash. Elsewhere, he also mentions that although he holds both records in high regard, he prefers JAY-Z’s “Takeover” on a musical level. With that said, he said he didn’t like “Super Ugly” at all, calling the record trash for its overwhelming disrespect towards Nas’ family.

Cam Newton Off-Season Sacrifices: No Meat And No… (Video)

… ‘touching’ his meat. WTF?? All pro QB Newton is on some new ‘ish to regain focus! He was pescatarian before, so maybe giving up meat was not so hard. He could hire a vegan chef. But that ‘no climax’ thing. Why would you give up the one thing a multimillionaire athlete is damn near guaranteed on a near nightly basis?? No thigh-thigh, not even looking at wi-fi, NO sex or nothing in or out of the champagne room. Now, that’s a REAL sacrifice! Talk about ‘March Madness’ (sheeeesh)! Good luck with that, sir.

James asks Cam Newton about his decision to go vegan and the challenges that come along with it, and the conversation turns to the presence of flowers on Cam’s social media, which has to do with Cam going fully celibate for the month of March.

Watch This Clip On A “Labor Camp” In Belle Glade, Florida, In 1960 (Mini-Documentary)

My Dad saw a similar story on TV in the mid-1980s and it prompted him to go looking for his older brother. They’d only been in sparse contact with each other, but Dad knew Uncle DeWitt was in Florida working on a farm similar to their sharecropping days. It turns out that Uncle DeWitt was caught up at a place like this.

Check out this footage of these kids and their mother at a “labor camp” in Belle Glade, FL in 1960. Gotta see it to believe it.
– UNSTRIPPED VOICE

We got him out of there. But places like that even existing in the 20th century. Makes me feel a way. Watch and you’ll likely feel it, too.
