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.

Pay Attention If You Don’t Want To Be A Broke & Starving Artist In This Industry (Video)

Producers and even lawyers are weighing in on this discussion this episode. Watch your moves and watch your money… OR you will watch your money move AWAY from you. Leaving you asking, “Where’d all the money go?”

In episode 102 of Rules To This Sh!t, music industry members such as D Dot, LV, Too $hort, Nipsey Hussle, Common and more discuss how the music industry really works, how to make and keep money as a new artist and who to trust as you go to the top.

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.

BET’s Punchline Presents The “Creed 2 Cypher” (Video)

Raw uncooked barz! So good to see Bones Brigante still doing his thing. I remember his battles on 106 & Park and the Hip-Hop Awards Cypher back in the day. All the spitters had flame in this.

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.

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.

Comedy: Keep It Lit. Hit Her With The ‘Henny D**k’ (Video)

Is there such a thing as ‘too far’ when it comes to 50 Central going for the funny? I’m asking…

Vince Swann tries out the next craze in helping his member stay lit.

Harder than Black Panther’s armor. Yeah, she finna get it!

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?’

Nick Fraser Speaks On The Good & Bad That Came From His “Why You Always Lyin” Going Viral (Video)

Remember that “Why You Always Lyin” that Nick Fraser went viral with? I remember thinking: “I wonder if kids listening/watching this even know who RL and Next are?” Ha!

Remixing Next’s “Too Close” on Vine got him more than he bargained for.

Should we add a category for Internet celebrities called ‘ceWEBrity’ (like Tosh.0 does on Comedy Central)?

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.

Yung Joc Hosts “Plates And Poles.” Watch Episode 1 Now (Video)

It goes down like THAT at the strip club… like shrimp & salmon with mac & cheese? Like THAT??? Apparently so in Atlanta. And Yung Joc is going to kick off this “Plates And Poles” series and bring you the real deal full meal on it.

Man, you’ll be ogling what Chef Kelz puts on them plates about as much as you’d be ogling the ‘shoe models’ at The Blue Flame. Hahaaa!

Comedy: Trying To Get That Old Thing Back? Curtis And Vivica Go To Couples Therapy On ’50 Central’ (Video)

This could have gone any number of ways, and Fif ‘n Viv played havoc with all of them… a little jokey-jokey, some gangsta sh!t, some a lot of sexual innuendo.

After years of separation, the two moguls enter the same room for a therapy session and things get a little dangerous.
– BET Networks

Bwaaahahaa! Viv was about to “Set It Off” (caught that?) on 50 Central… Whoa! Put the knife DOWN!

Besides… I see you… keeping thangs tizzight, Ms. Fox. I’m saying though. Maybe 50 don’t want that thang-thang, but I know a dude who wanna see about it (raised my hand, hoping to raise my… heh… nevermind).
