RIP Nipsey Hussle (Video)

I hoped against all hope that it was not true, but CNN and major news and online reporting outlets confirm that Nipsey Hussle died tragically, the result of a shooting near his clothing store, in the area of Crenshaw and Slauson. Born Ermias Davidson Asghedom, he was 33 years old.

Beyond the obvious, what is really saddening is that while Nip lived a lifetime in his short years, he had so much more to live for. He was fresh off a well-deserved Grammy nomination and consistently recognized for his solid body of work in rap, his noteworthy successes in business, and his neighborhood activism in keeping with global thinking and local action. But he was due for more: J. Cole and Drake both shared that they were set to do songs with him and would miss his presence. He was in the final stages of buying up the block [where his business operates] and bringing peace & brotherhood to his hood. And we just posted on the committed relationship and family life he had built with Lauren London on here.

Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle died after a shooting in Los Angeles near a clothing store he owned, according to a high-ranking law enforcement official with the Los Angeles Police Department. CNN’s Brooke Baldwin discusses with DJ HeadKrack.

Such a loss for us all. In time, we will heal. But for now, we will mourn. Rest In Peace, Neighborhood Nip.

Headkrack talks Radio,TV, & The Nature of Show Business on Odell’s Roundtable

If you are an intricate part of a top rated morning show that is syndicated all over the US. Someone would think that it was something you were a natural at. Then couple that with being on a top rated TV show that airs five times a week. Most people would think that it just all came together nicely.  Well Headkrack is someone who is on a top rated morning show (The Rickey Smiley Morning Show), on TV (Dish Nation) five times a week and it didnt just fall in his lap.  He joined ArtbyOdell on Odell’s Roundtable to discuss his journey and what it took to get here.  He is not finished and is not someone who is resting on what he has already accomplished.  He is a talented emcee and is making a name for himself in all forms of media.  In this interview he gives detailed events of how he got on the airwaves in Dallas without any prior radio knowledge.  He stated that growing up in the Bronx made him a hustler and he never lost that mentality.  Check out the interview and let Headkrack & Odell know what you think about it!

“Who’s Driving Hip Hop” Has Headkrack Along For The Ride (Video)

I find this “Who’s Driving Hip-Hop” concept to be hella creative & dope. Heavy on the guest and their story; but also taking care of business (mentioning the vehicle they’re in; best believe somebody kicked in on the budget for the promo mention). Good guest selection by the way: Headkrack (of Bodega Brovas) is an on-air radio personality, a character on or offline and a dope emcee (earlier posts on him here).

Kendrick Lamar Freestyles on ‘The Ricky Smiley Morning Show’ (Video)

My homie Headkrack is a co-host on ‘The Rickey Smiley Morning Show’ on Hot 107.9 FM (Atlanta) & a skilled emcee in his own right. I chuckled to myself watching the video as Headkrack called out a rapper from St. Louis **Cough Nelly Cough*** who didn’t want to freestyle on the show, but their guest in the studio this particular day was not just some ‘ol basic rapper. Headkrack managed to coerce Kendrick Lamar to spit a very dope of-the-top freestyle while live on air. Good job, man. Kendrick, too. Hahaaaa! Now this is a true & perfect example of the difference between a rapper and an emcee.

My homie Headkrack, who also works over at Hot 107.9 FM Atlanta on the Rickey Smiley Morning Show, interviewed 50 Cent while he was in Atlanta & the discussion went everywhere from the future of G-Unit, the recent Jimmy Henchmen arrest allegations, the new deal with Shawty Lo, Dr. Dre’s Detox album, Lil Kim, Tony Yayo, Game, & more.

The Bodega Brovas – ‘Now Or Never’

Congratulations to the homies Headkrack, Travii the 7th, & Keynote on their recent signing to HiPNOTT Records. Also big up to Kevin Nottingham for doing the damn thing repping for indy artists via his blog & now with the new label venture dedicated to artists on the come up. I had the Bodega Brovas on my radio show I think early last year & their vibe immediately takes me to that fun style of hip hop involving call & response crowd participation along with lyricism. They are like a 2011 version of the Cold Crush Brothers but with a few less members & a name change to the ‘Bodega Brovas’. They have a new album slated to drop in the fall of this year. Check out the song below & after the jump I included some video from when the fellas took a trip over the pond in their mini-movie ‘American B-Boys In London’.
