GLC Says Kanye West Defines Success As Being Embraced By White People (Video)

Don’t know if this is all real talk, sneak dissing, some dry snitching or what… but this word on Yeezus comes from a [likely former] homie of his who would know. Rapper GLC came up with Yeezy in The Go Getters crew back in Chicago back in the day. Well, GLC interviewed with The Chicago Morning Takeover show, and spilled a big bowl of Kanye beans – on everything from the hospitalization to the new hair coloring (blonde) of Ye.

Hey, we all have our weirdness; whether in phases or on the daily. But the most damning shot GLC might have let fly is alleging Kanye’s life goal of turning in his hood pass.

He equated success to being accepted by the caucasian masses. So if the caucasian people embraced him, that means he made it.

Wowwww.

‘5 Minutes Of Funk’ With DJ Diamond (Video)

DJ Diamond did the damn thang on this ep. of #5MinutesOfFunk though yo. Nothing not to love about it when Funkmaster Flex goes back to the elements. The emcees doing the Freestyles… and now, Turntable Tuesday.

Know that saying, “Time flies” right? Well, it is especially true when a DJ is having fun blacking out on the wheels… like how 5 Minutes becomes 12 Minutes Of Funk. Haaaa! Good stuff!

Roc Marci is in the building… and the only one of his UN comrades who kept it pushing in the music grind. But Roc keeps in touch with the homies regardless (good). Hear him talk about “Rosebudd’s Revenge” (the album), being his own boss, loving that West Coast living and more.

Jay Pharoah Speaks On Leaving SNL, Remembers Charlie Murphy And More (Video)

Jay Pharoah wants you to know that he is ‘not a yes n!gga’ folks. Hear, in the interview above, the risky career situations where he says ‘no’ to things, how he ended up leaving Saturday Night Live and more. Interesting how he affirmed that they (SNL) attempted to pigeonhole him as the Black impressionist; then he tossed that Chris Rock impression right in there within minutes (then a smidge of President Trump later).

(Did Jay say he got ‘White famous’ around the 8-minute mark though? Hahaa!)

Ludacris And Tyrese Speak On Recent Media Controversies, The Latest ‘Fast & Furious’ Movie And More (Video)

Ha! Pepsi AND Bill O’Reilly are both under fire, and they both dissed the sh!t out of Ludacris back in the day. Now Luda is doing pretty damn good… and they are NOT! Ohhhhh, success is the BEST revenge!

Tyrese & Ludacris keep it all the way 100 in The Breakfast Club studio, talk new music, “Fate of the Furious” & More.

And coming for Tyrese about weave, fake butts and such is not the best move. His rebuttal game is on point. Maybe don’t hate on a dude solely for expressing opinions and living life. He is not your boyfriend, nor is he feeding you or your fam.

(But they are gonna go all the way up to a 10th ‘Fast & Furious’ movie though? Whoa.)

Kxng Crooked – “Come Clean Freestyle” (Video)

While Joey Bada$$ spoke from the heart on Hip-Hop’s old guard holding back the new-new (here), let’s keep it true… Real Hip-Hop cann’t get much more to the core than this! KXNG Crooked doing damage on Jeru The Damaja’s classic instrumental. Barz!!

Joey Bada$$ Says New York Hip-Hop Is Stale And New York Radio Is Not Helping (Video)

Respect to Joey Bada$$. We listen to him on that mic because when he touches mics, he continually earns that respect. Take in what he is saying about the stagnation in Hip-Hop. What he is saying about how things must and do change, including Hip-Hop. Caution: It’s gonna sting a bit of you are a boom-bap-over-trap or new-stuff-is-not-real-rap proponent. There must be a righteous middle ground though. Joey calling old heads on holding the youth in the game back… saying that to ‘Old Man Ebro‘… that’s some live and direct sh!t. But as an early 20-something who’s pretty much a vet, we have to let him say it.

Maybe we should really try to give space on the established (read: old) channels for new artists out here.

Now, of course, there is much more to this interview. But that part packs a punch.

(Okay, Joey. Message received. But we reserved the right to trash trash music.)

DL Hughley Speaks On ESPN’s Sage Steele Firing, White Privilege, & Fox News Anchor Bill O’Reilly (Video)

Deeeeem! It’s cold out here for Sage Steele now that the ESPN door got slammed, esp. in the Hughley-verse.

More than that, in this short clip, DL went IN on the FoxNews x Bill O’Reilly situation in the right way… Hell, I remember having genuine HEAT for FoxNews’ ‘Papa Bear’ when he attacked Ludacris on his show (attempted character assassination); when Pepsi dumped Luda as a spokesperson (by the way, eff Pepsi for that.. I’m a Pepper)!

My rhymes ain’t rhymes. They’re life sentences.

wuuuuuuWHAAAT! Barz dammit! Watching Your Old Droog doing this freestyle on Showoff Radio… could have easily re-titled this ‘Why We Fux With Droog: The Video.’ Hell, we just might! Salute Statik Selekt! Wreck ws caught on Shade 45 that night fa’sho.

Samuel L. Jackson talks about President Trump, racism in America, Hollywood’s casting of British Black actors in ‘American’ roles, “Kong: Skull Island,” and more. See? Waaaay more than just the 2 controversial minutes here or there the gossip sites are gushing about.

(Google that sh!t if you like. We don’t do that here.)

But something else of note: Jackson, in response to Ebro’s lead-in, touches on the historical racist undertones in all the “King Kong” movies (like we did on here). Yeah. Talk more about that mainstream.

Faith Evans Speaks On Her Memories And The Legacy Of Notorious B.I.G. And More (Video)

The Hip-Hop nation noted the passing of 20 years since the passing of Notorious B.I.G. And it seems appropos that the popularly recognized wifey of Biggie is given the mic and spotlight and time to speak on things. Got a project on hers and B.I.G.’s love (“The King & I,” due out May 19th) that she talks about, memories, Biggie’s legacy and more. Talks abut Lil Kim and Stevie J, too.

Cory Gunz Freestyles On Flex | Freestyle #048 (Video)

Peter Gunz, your son is that one! Cory Gunz grunts through the Wu track intro, then he spun out on it like he left fire on the tires!! Non-stop. Actually the only thing that stopped him was a stumble at the end. But eff that though, that’s how live freestyle flows go. Pretty damn dope. Get ’em Gunz!

J.I.D. – “Elevators (Me & You) Freestyle” [Video]

Dreamville. That’s J. Cole’s label. Cole just signed J.I.D. to the label, so he must be good. But… um… let’s check out this freestyle he did on air for DJ Tony Touch’s show on Shade 45… just to be sure.

(Okay yep. Dude is that good. And he’s from Atlanta, so bonus righteous points for going in on the Outkast “Elevators (Me & You)” beat.)

Mack Wilds Speaks On Adele vs. Beyonce, ‘The Breaks’ And More (Video)

Yup yup. Mack Wilds doing the media rounds, with his show “The Breaks” returning to VH1 for a season. A Power 105 promo stop-through was must for the menu. Something dope about a new school artist doing a Hip-Hop TV series set in the time of his childhood… and showing up on modern radio to talk about it. Watch above.

Mack Wilds talks his role in ‘The Breaks,’ working with Sanna Lathan in ‘Shots Fired,’ new music & more.

Wilds is wary of how WILD Ms. Yee is getting with that riding crop though. Hahaa! And he is very savvy about maneuvering around some of the ‘it’ girls of the world (Sanaa Lathan, Adele, Beyonce). We see ya young playa!
