Nipsey Hussle Stays True To Himself, Even If It Means Being ‘Uncomfortable’ (Video)

You get the furthest being authentic…

And that’s that if you ask Nip Hussle. While he kinda went with the temp of the room (e.g. the rest of the guys declaring that your ‘approach’ should fit the circumstances), Nipsey did hold to the ‘no code-switching’ mode. Gotta believe that being Hussle made him a boss. Why would he change his persona for anyone, in any situation? Respect.

The rapper chats with the men of “BET’s Mancave” about being uncomfortable.

Town Hall With The “Black Panther” Stars (Video)

By now, you know opening weekend for “Black Panther” was epic! Sway, Heather, and Tracy get into all kinds of topics related by the movie and relevant to us. Wakanda Forever!

And Lupita and Danai for as long as they want. Whew! So beautiful.

(That said, Let it be known that Heather and Tracy G have been on my ‘Can Get It’ list for a long time! Just being polite to company.)

The cast of the highly anticipated Black Panther movie stopped by Sway In The Morning to talk about how the making of this epic film. Director Ryan Coogler was joined by Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Lupita Nyong’o (Okoye), Danai Gurira (Nakia) and Michael B. Jordan (Erik Killmonger).

Killer Mike On Why People, White And Black, Are Mad (Video)

Damn. Michael Render with the real talk. Gotta use Killer Mike’s government name because it’s so real! Ever wonder why poor and working class White people vote against their interests… aligning with Republicans who want to defund programs that benefit them and give tax cuts for citizens who make way more than they do? Because the flag-waving and make-American-great-again chanting has them thinking the ‘trickle down’ from those ‘job creators’ will become a wave of prosperity they can ride to the top [and someday join the 1%]?

Nah… Mike says it’s because they’re mad, son!

I think poor White people are mad because the system that promises you something based on that isn’t ever going to give you that … Poor white people during the civil rights movement in Mississippi they were treated as badly as any Black worker. But because there was an imaginary line of race got put there and they can still say they are superior to this person, they never joined with the Black worker to fight better conditions for them all.
Killer Mike

But hold up, Black people. Mike has some biting words for his people, too.

A must watch!

(Yeah. We ALL have a right to be angry. But what are we gonna do about it?)

Opinion: Should Artists Ever ‘Retire’… How Long Is Too Long? (Video)

Our good friends over at Dead End Hip Hop, but here’s my belief…..Never Never Never should artist announce they are retiring. They should pop in & out of the scene and quietly fade away. No announcements because no one likes a burnout.

Should artists retire on top or continue until they fall off? DJBooth’s Yoh (@yoh31) wrote an article a few weeks back discussing this topic. While in Los Angeles, we hooked up with Justin Hunte “The Company Man” (Ambrosia for Heads) and Justin Styles (All Def Music) to lend their thoughts on the topic.
– Dead End Hip Hop

Good talk. But since they asked: What are your thoughts?

Comedy: The SquADD Debates To Decide The “Best Horror Movie Villain” (Video)

Okay, you have seen enough of these All Def Digital panels by now on here to know… NOTHING ever gets ‘decided.’ The panelists take turns making points and scoring verbal jabs on each other. Makes for hilarious watching though.

(My vote out of these though… Michael Myers.)

The SquADD Debates The ‘Best Chocolate Bar’ Ever (Video)

The struggle is SO real in this All Def Digital clip… the struggle not to laugh until you cry! Every candy bar in this “discussion” is someone’s favorite, so that’s not up for debate. But just like any food review panel the squADD convenes, the joning/cracking/bagging/janking is EPIC. They just cannot resist going in on each other, can they?

Look. Make up your mind about which candy you like early, then enjoy the hilarity of the panelists giving each other the business! Bwaaahahaa!

Sports/Politics: Nick Wright’s Question For People Angered By The #TakeAKnee Movement: What Are You Actually Mad At? (Video)

I’m not gonna engage on the absurdity that we just ran a clip where a player quotes the President Of The United States, and we felt we needed to bleep it.
Nick Wright

Yeah. And this isn’t the first time the words of the POTUS have been ‘bleeped’… But let’s not engage in the folly for now.

Instead, let’s follow Nick’s lead. Let’s follow the line of reasoning, avoiding all the crazy and staying on that line… bypassing the false equivocations… walking past the baseless arguments of the Trumpeters and stepping over their misunderstandings, barreling through that wall protecting those who want to make ‘Murica great again, make football in ‘Murica great again, until we arrive at the heart of what those against the PEACEFUL #TakeAKnee movement are really against…

Because once we get to the end of that line of unreasonable, where folks in their feelings have nowhere to go and have to answer honestly about why they detest #TakeAKnee …”What Are You Actually Mad At?”

And before someone says it… we’re NOT going to ‘just stick to sports’ this time. I just want them to say the words.

Prophets Of Rage Speak On The New Album And On Trump Not Being The Sole Reason For The Group’s Being (Video)

Bahaaa! Timmy C. with the ex-girlfriend level of intensity in getting controversial documentarian (and fan of Rage Against The Machine, Cypress Hill, and Public Enemy) Michael Moore to do the Prophets Of Rage music video… pays off.

Prophets Of Rage (Tom Morello, Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Chuck D, B-Real and DJ Lord) came together during 2016’s tumultuous election to combat the coming storm. Fresh off the road and riled up following last summer’s highly successful “Make America Rage Again” tour, the group knew it could evolve from protest performance art with a tactical mission, to a stand-alone entity with creative ideas all its own. At its core, Prophets Of Rage functions not only on a love of music, but a deep belief in its power as a tool, and a weapon. The group stopped by the BUILD Studio to discuss their new self-titled album.
– BUILD Series

Egos put aside for the music and the mission and the creative process. Hear the supergroup talk about it all above. Shout out to ATL’s own DJ Lord in there, too.

Joe, Rory, Mal and Parks talk about the ranks of the best rappers of all-time. And dude is gonna start with some potential sideways talk about Eminem… with Slaughterhouse Joe sitting right there?? Ohhh kaaay, let’s see how the rest of this convo goes.

A good amount of time spent on Cam’s (Cam’ron) placement in the rankings. Hmmm… Plus, interesting comments on the NY-South-everywhere else thing by Budden. Actually, a little bite to the words.

Remember: We’re out here in the ATL, Joe.

African History: Dr. John Henrik Clarke, Dr. Ivan Van Sertima, Dr. Yosef Ben Jochannan Tell It “Like It Is” (Video)

African History is WORLD History! Africa MADE history, not just as the Motherland for all humanity; but for all kinds of advances. Evidence of an astronomical observatory, calendars, advanced husbandry and metal works… way in advance of when man supposedly first ‘discovered’ them… Yeah, this is vintage footage of Black scholars telling us – and offering strong arguments to support – that Africa had all that on lock.

The scholars even speak of the cultural character of ancient African civilizations. When Africans invade, they do not wipe out others’ civilizations. But when others invade…

Well, just watch. Wonder. Learn. SHARE!

70 Year Olds Try Smoking Weed For The First Time (Video)

Bwaaahahaaa! THIS is why, though I am not a consumer, I am cool with having the doobie-doers around. No personal politics in this video one way or the other. Just some dudes who have gone all their lives without taking even one hit off a joint, now deciding to fire up and fuse up. The result is informative and incredibly funny (looking at you, Graham)!

Plus… there are snacks!

Food/Comedy: “The Best Pizza Chain” According To The SquADD (Video)

Just can’t do Papa Johns… unless it’s free… I’ll eat FREE pizza from almost anywhere. Of course, given my ‘druthers (e.g. things I’d rather have), I want the best pizza. And for the record, I have loved Dominos every since its ‘new & improved taste’ roll-out.
