Take An In-Depth Look At Life On Tour And Understand That There Are ‘Rules To This Sh!t’ (Video)

The Game rapped it best: “Who you know gonna turn down some groupie love?” And you know the answer… nobody! But, see, that is the problem; especially on tour. Being on the road is about handling BUSINESS. Hanging or hooking up with groupies can take your mind off business. Who can afford that? You already know the answer to that, too… NOBODY!

LV, D Dot, Too $hort, Tokyo Jetz, Dreezy, Ayo & Teo, Cousin Stizz and more dive deeper in what goes down on the road. #WhatHappensOnTour

Eye Candy: Former Child Star Parker McKenna Is Finally ‘Comfortable’ With Her Body (Video)

Hey, I have absolutely NO problem separating ‘young Katy’ on a TV show from the fit-thickulous snack that is the WOMAN that is today’s Parker. Sorry for any haters out there, but her body is ‘woken up’ and she keeps it trained up.

Parker McKenna isn’t young Katy from My Wife & Kids anymore and wants you to know! She reveals the motivation behind her working out and what keeps her confident.
– BETNetworks

Watch how Parker keeps her slim thick physique, and her life in general, together.

Becoming A Mogul In The Music Game Doesn’t “Just Happen”… There Are ‘Rules To This Sh!t’ (Video)

Interestingly enough, when the fellas on here talk about going to the studio like it’s an exciting thing… I have seen MANY artists run off after accepting an invitation to go to a recording/mastering session. It is not all fun times, weed smoke, and bottle popping. At all! #RulesToThisShxt

A Look Into Rap Beef & What It’s Really Good For… NOTHING (Video)

Asked and answered: Does rap beef really help your career? Does it serve Hip-Hop? No, and HELL no. Battles? Okay. That real, that hands-on beef? Stop it. Recognize that there are Rules To This Sh!t… and consequences!

In episode 103 of RTTS we explore the beefs in Hip-Hop, the point when conflicts arise and egos trip.

From rap battles to straight physical violence, are certain ways of conducting beef good for Hip-Hop or is it helping destroy the culture?

Nore, Too $hort, Tokyo Jetz and others do a deep dive on this controversial topic in the music industry.

How Much Do You Know About Soul Food? (Video)

Ohhhh… The series is called ‘Black 2 Life’… like in ‘Back 2 Life’ by Soul II Soul. And this is on soul food. Hope you enjoyed some good traditional New Year’s peas & rice and greens and pork (for those that partake) by the way.

For the record, I disagree with several of these so-called ‘correct’ answers though.

Have You Seen ‘The Booth’ Freestyles At The 2018 BET Hip-Hop Awards? (Video)

Well, well. I think I am ready to say it… Even with Preemo and Bella Badu on the 1’s and 2’s, I liked the overall energy of ‘The Booth’ over the Cyphers this year. Not saying there were not some hella fire freestyles in the Cyphers, but this looked fun!

Got bars? T.I., Shiggy, Safaree, Nick Grant, Christian Combs and more proved they did in The Booth at the Hip-Hop Awards. Hosted by Big Tigger.

Did You Watch The 2018 BET Cyphers? Do It Now, And Again, Right Here (Video)

A good look for BET: posting these to YouTube without that forced auto-play turned on. Now you can watch them in turn… enjoy, critique, hate on… whatever you do when you watch. Pretty dope overall. Wasn’t hyped in the weeks building up to them this year. Might be a good thing. The heads will check for the Cyphers. The rest who have to be ‘marketed’ to; we don’t need ’em.

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.

(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!)

The Story Of How Models Helped Hip-Hop Stars Make Videos That Made Money… Until The Game Changed (Trailer)

VIXEN. Simple, powerful title. Makes sense with coverage of Karrine Steffans (and her book) in this.

Saw this described elsewhere as exploring the ‘Video Vixen Era.’ Never thought of it as an era, but the MODELS (not the rappers or singers) in music videos that caught major buzz before Instagram… yeah, that’s a thing. Should make for some worthwhile watching. That, plus sexy women…

Melyssa Ford, Buffie The Body, Karrine Steffans and more video vixens write themselves back into Hip-Hop history in this BET Original Documentary.

50 Central Needs These Actors To Be A Little More ‘Urban’ At Their Auditions (Video)

So right, but so wrong. Hahaaa!

I will admit to being a little uncomfortable, so I know the actors were when they got the Black card slammed down on them at the audition all of a sudden. Ole girl reeeeally drew it out for effect and let them sweat before letting them in on the joke.

Now, what would happen if you went to an audition & they told you to be ‘more Urban?’
