People Do Know That Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Is NOT On Twitter… Don’t They? (Video)

Since this is Donald Trump’s first MLK Day in office we decided to commemorate it by going out on the street and asking people whose side they were on in the Donald Trump/Dr. King Twitter war. Of course, Martin Luther King has been gone for 50 years but that didn’t stop people from weighing in on this impossible feud in an MLK Day edition of #LieWitnessNews.
Jimmy Kimmel Live

Sometimes you just gotta laugh at sh!t. Like this Kimmel clip. Hope they don’t end up starting a ‘real’ Trump Tweet beef with Dr. MLK Jr. (RIP) Prediction on that: Would be reeeeeally one-sided.

(But you knew that. Some of these interviewees, well, may not.)

Rapsody Speaks On Her Grammy Nomination And Being Female In The Rap Genre (Video)

Absolutely! Of course, Rapsody should be on with Larry King. She can speak for Hip-Hop, esp. from her perspective as a female in the culture. She is one of our BEST! Very dope interview clip. Watch!

As the only woman nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammys, Rapsody says the honor is bittersweet, noting that – unlike in the 90s, which produced a plethora of chart-topping Hip-Hop from women – female rappers today struggle to break into the mainstream.

Fabolous & Jadakiss Break Down The Lyrics For “F vs. J Intro” (Video)

Daaaamit! We are NOT doing wack rap over here this year (as if we did ever). We are on the soapbox, standing for LYRICISM in the ‘018, like what we have her in the “F vs. J Intro.” The words and meanings behind them are laid out lovely by the architects of the rhyme – Fab and Jada.

Fabolous and Jadakiss ended 2017 with ‘Friday On Elm Street,’ a collaborative album that features Future, French Montana, Yo Gotti, Jeezy, and more. The title is a reference to the classic ‘Friday the 13th’ and ‘Nightmare On Elm Street’ horror movies, and the project kicks off with the aptly titled “F vs. J Intro,” an abbreviated version of the film series’ respective villains Jason Voorhees and Freddy Kreuger. The horror movie mythology is woven throughout the track, as both Fab and Jada explain to Genius.

Aries Spears Speaks On Black Thought’s Funk Flex Freestyle And Challenges Young Rappers To Step Up (Video)

Lean in around 7 minutes in. You are gonna need to watch this entire clip. But Aries Spears is speaking REAL LIFE to REAL HIP-HOP in this. Right there #ThatPart

And yeah. Being young, of a different era, that ‘old heads did drugs, gangsta ish and money talk rhymes, too’… stop it with all that; and hold this ‘L’ if you can’t.

Wack was wack back then. And it is now.

Salute to ALL artists for the COURAGE it takes to share your gift. Respect. But we LOVE dope music. At best, we ‘cool’ on the rest. And when we talk about being dope, we speak to the greatest in rap We mean those who speak to the Hip-Hop Nation. Folks we can stand on 20+ years later.

I submit all the music I try-out to a 20-year test. Black Thought and those of his ilk (Andre 3K, Scarface, Common, and many more) passed. I submit that Joey Bada$$, K. Dot, J. Cole, A$AP Rocky… will pass that test. But a lot of that work that Aries sh!t on in this will not.

Time will tell. And bet it won’t take 20 years.

T-Pain Speaks On Not Pressing Cash Money For His Royalties, Putting His Music Over Family And Pushing On (Video)

When T-Pain was T-Pain, every up-n-coming artist wanted that “T-Pain” effect on their music. Those who could afford to, collab’d with him (making for some long money)… the rest attempted to duplicate the magic of that which he made famous for Hip-Hop & crunk-n-B. That autotune groundswell he started and became known for; that made for his longevity!
