Michael Rapaport Explains Why He Hates On President Trump, ‘King’ James And Jay Hova’s “4:44” (Video)

Damn. If you have been keeping up with Michael Rapaport in any way, you know that he gives a f*ck, but not two, about some things.

Now, about what ‘backlash’ might be coming his way about his very publicized and reiterated disdain for the current U.S. President… Let’s be clear: Michael gives ZERO f*cks!

Watch him re-reiterate that and sh!t on Lebron James (for ‘ruining the NBA’ and dissing his kids) and that “4:44” album (for lacking ‘smackers’).

Plus some ‘bars’ for these mumble rappers. Plus a LOT more!

Michael Rapaport Was There When Pac And Snoop Met (Video)

Yoooo! The Stormy Fronts commentary ruled (funny and fine af)! Rapaport was cool (but excited to be there) as a fan blowing the smoke cloud away from Snoop… but the ‘weather’ report though. Yessssirrrr! Oh okay, the ‘news’ was good, too.

Today on GGN, the one and only Michael Rapaport stops by and describes bearing witness to the first time Snoop and Pac met. All this and more on this week’s GGN… u-bitch-u!!! Make sure you check out the “I Am Rapaport Podcast” on iTunes, or at IAmRapaport.com for more of this guy’s lunacy!

Sean Price – “Dead Or Alive” feat. Bernadette Price (Video)

Banger! So good it made me tear up a bit. Okay, a lot. The beats and BARS are epic, of course, but that ain’t all. First off, because RIP SEAN PRICE (really do miss him)! Second, because his wife Bernadette is in there give his rhymes and legacy LIFE (she worked with him on tracks when he was still with us). Third, this Brownsville Zoo (think ‘Brooklyn Zoo’ in ODB’s mind in the middle of the best-worst drug dream)…bwaaahaaa!

Plus, shout to Michael ‘Rappingport’ for coming to us with the exclusive on-scene report; The gorilla is loose, and he is spitting that monkey sh!t off “Imperius Rex.” P!

Michael Rapaport Addresses ATCQ’s Grievances With The ‘Beats, Rhymes, & Life’ Documentary


Complex Magazine caught up with Michael Rapaport for him to give his side of the story regarding the upcoming A Tribe Called Quest documentary ‘Beats, Rhymes, & Life’. I’ve seen the film already but I’m not sure what the final version will look like after some demands were made to have multiple scenes and statements left on the cutting room floor. I have to agree with Michael Rapaport on several key things he mentioned in this article that I was asking myself prior to this interview. Like adding the final piece to a completed puzzle my assumptions were confirmed by Rapaport’s responses. There’s not enough time for me to go into detail here, but you can check out the article at the link below. Pay careful attention & I believe you’ll come away with a better understanding of what really happened & of what is going on now. There’s alot of stuff said here from Michael Rapaport that simply makes alot of sense.

The bottom line is that this a documentary & not a film with actors.  There’s nothing that needs to be acted so what the audience is getting is who you really are when those cameras are on.  I personally believe Q-Tip didn’t like what he saw about himself on screen & immediately began to initiate steps to do damage control. Off screen he’s not exactly making himself look too good either with the interviews & twitter statements instead of handling things behind closed doors.  The general public doesn’t care about what issues Q-Tip has with Michael Rapaport.  They just want to see the film & it won’t stop them from going to theaters or to the bootleg DVD man to see the movie.  After piecing it all together I do believe Phife handled things pretty smart in a variety of ways. There appears to have been a lot of great opportunities missed with this project & because Q-Tip is the frontman of the group it could be perceived that he’s the primary problem. At least that’s my perception.

Q-Tip Tells His Side Of The Story About The ATCQ Documentary (Video)


Hmmmmm……I have a feeling that the movie may show Q-Tip in a really negative light according to people who have saw the movie already ….

Michael Rapaport Talks About The ATCQ Documentary At Sundance (Video)

Alot of people were wondering why Phife only attended the Sundance screening in Utah & assumed that most of the brothas didn’t support the film. Ali Shaheed had been on a European tour & couldn’t make Sundance. Seems like before members of the media started making assumptions they should have probably reached out to them individually. Assuming that members of the press had tried at all. I’m still looking forward to seeing the film. A Tribe Called Quest is one of my favorite hip hop groups of all time & I’m also proud to enjoy a friendship with Phife, Jarobi, & Ali Shaheed.
