Watch Drag-On “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Wow… I was VERY surprised at Drag-On’s ratings of the rap lyrics in this ep. Don’t wanna ruin the surprise for you, but expect to ask yourself about midway through, “Is this Drag-On? Fireman Drag? For really??”

Benny The Butcher is very impressed by some of the bars he’s reading.

It’s like dude knew all the dopest bars, or at least knew of their realness, before he finished reading them. Nice!

Which Of These New Fast Rappers Will Get The Cosign From Twista?

Perfect question for Twista: Which of today’s ‘fast’ rappers is the best? Ski Mask? JID? Quadeca?

Dame Dash Evaluates Some Of The Hottest New Female Rappers Out Now (Video)

I will admit. This is not entirely what I would have expected from Dame on this topic, but there’s nothing out of line with what the boss says. You don’t have to entirely agree. I don’t. But I do entirely respect this piece. And all the Eye Candy… I mean… It is noon (c’mon son)!

Dame Dash made a name for himself as a co-founder of the iconic Hip-Hop label, Roc-A-Fella, so he knows a thing or two about emerging artists. For this episode of ‘The Cosign,’ we recruited the self-proclaimed “boss” to review videos from up and coming women in rap.

From Megan Thee Stallion’s “Big Ole Freak” to Bhad Bhabie’s “Babyface Savage” to Melii’s “See Me,” Dash shared his thoughts on some of Hip-Hop’s newest acts.

Here’s A Suggestion On The Order To Watch All The MCU Movies… Just Before “Endgame” Hits Theaters (Video)

Interesting. I just got my brother BoneBreaker Jones to watch that first “Avengers” MCU movie. I urged him to watch the movies in order as they came out. But Looper suggests a different order. Good points, too. Not mad at them for this.

How To Cool Down Your Mouth When Eating Spicy Foods (Video)

Woooo, Stacia is HOTTER than all them peppers. Just saying…

Okay, maybe those ‘Hot Ones’ guests should be watching this to know how to survive when those wings start getting to them when they face off with Sean Evans.

In this episode of “Down the Hatch,” we use our own staffers as guinea pigs (don’t worry, we asked them first) to figure out the best ways to cool down a spicy hot mouth. Ice cream? Bread? Beer? A combination of all three? We put our own taste buds to the task to help you out. You’re welcome.

What’s the best way to cool down a hot mouth? Can we tell the difference between chain pizza and legit NYC slices? What’s the best cocktail you can make with Emergen-C? On “Down the Hatch,” we are putting our own tongues to task to taste test the wildest foods, drinks, and recipes for your own personal benefit. Thank us later. Or, maybe in the comment section?

Lord Finesse Speaks On What Made Gang Starr (DJ Premier x GURU) Special [Video]

If anyone can speak on this, Lord Finesse can. Saying Preemo is a SUPER-producer… all while repping DITC (with its cabal of dope producers)… yeah, that’s a powerful recommendation. And stressing that GURU (RIP) had that monotone style that NO ONE could come close to imitating. Yeah, Finesse is spot on!

Enjoy and reflect on Gang Starr’s greatness. For the Culture!

Pull up… a chair… while the ladies speak about the ‘pull down’… the sweatpants print. They tell the truth. Their truth. Check your ego, guys.

And we can all learn. Growers vs. showers. And like, WTF a ‘macrophallus’ is.

Bonus: Got that conversation with Sexpert Glamazon Tyomi they mentioned in the clip after the jump.

Listen To Black Women Speak On Why They Choose ‘Bad Boys’ Over ‘Good Guys’ (Video)

Okay, y’all. Lean in. Beautiful sistas are about to tell you why good guys finish last. Or at least that’s what is promised. We’ll see.

In this episode, we’re asking the question: why aren’t we picking the “good guy” first?
– MadameNoire

And yeah, I watched all the way through. If I want to attract a good sista, I need to make every effort to learn what they want in a man. Right? Right!

Swizz Beatz Speaks On What’s Wrong With Hip-Hop Producing And How To Do It Right (Video)

YES! There is a DIFFERENCE between a beatmaker and a PRODUCER! Swizz is a producer. Understand? Watch and you will…

Producing. The somewhat lost art that Swizz Beatz, born Kasseem Dean, has specialized in since he was 20 years old dishing beats to Jay-Z and DMX. It isn’t just about pairing drums with snares or dancing in the back of the videos. It’s a curation process that’s earned the Yonkers native millions of dollars, more plaques than he can count on two hands, and a reputation that stretches across the seven seas.

Comedy: Dear Racist… Don’t Be Scared. And Don’t Call The Cops. Dial 1-844-WYT-FEAR Instead (Video)

Hilarious! Plus, Neicy Nash (always nice) is in this.

In this satirical infomercial, the comedian and actress Niecy Nash plays the inventor of a new hotline, 1-844-WYT-FEAR. The video advertises a phone service for White people to call when they can’t cope with Black people living their lives near them. It’s a real phone number we created so that fearful Whites can call it for advice, about their racism.
– The New York Times

So there you have it ‘fearful Whites’… a dedicated hotline just for you to dial up. Or, you could, maybe, just take a deep breath and a pill and go lay down somewhere or something.

Watch Curren$y “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Ohhhh! Shout to BET for throwing the Na’Tee verse from her Cypher at dude for the review. Respek on Curren$y’s name for his evaluation of these barz!

Curren$y came into Rate the Bars of some great rappers. Giving huge props to B.G., Tyga, Wiz, and the late Mac Miller who he collab’d with.
– BETNetworks

(Realizing how old AND how much of a Sci-Fi GEEK I am, getting that ‘C3PO’ reference from the Mac Miller (RIP) verse right off… not even thinking it all the way through like Curren$y did. Hahaaa!)

Politics: Conservatives Love Kanye West’s Repping ‘Make America Great Again’ While Wanting Taylor Swift To ‘Shush’ Again (Video)


(Click here to watch on Facebook.)

Nope. Not gonna let Taylor finish… again.

How interesting… and predictable. Talking heads on the right want famous folks to ‘shut up’ and dribble, sing or whatever… unless they dribble the rhetoric they want to hear.

How dare Kanye West say President George W. Bush does care about Black people back in the day. Oh, wait. He’s spitting some of that ‘free thinking’ Make America Great Again (MAGA)? Ahhh, he’s a refreshing right-wing converted icon now.

(Hmmm… remember wifey Kim Kardashian West was just up at the White House months ago. Let’s see how all this plays out. Gotta find five years of reality TV footage for that “Who’s House? Trump’s House!” show premiering after the 2020 elections. Ha!)

And Taylor Swift. She is out of line with the right. Speaking out of turn, so according to the right-wing pundits, it is time for her to go back to singing and stay out of politics like a good girl.

Here’s The Breakdown.

Watch Onyx “Rate The Bars” (Video)

Ha! That’s why they evaluate these bars without being told who spit them. Honest appraisals of the lyricals. And these Onyx cats are HARD on the bars!

Sticky Fingaz and Fredro Starr from Onyx came in to rate some bars. They also rated themselves a much deserved 5.
