Nipsey Hussle Is An Entrepreneur & Hip-Hop Artist, In That Order (Video)

To me, a starving artist is uncomfortable.
Nipsey Hussle

BOOOOOM!

All the faithful fam on here already know that Nip Hussle is about his BUSINESS(es)… see here for example. Dude is seemingly the epitome of laid-back in his demeanor though; like he doesn’t chase bread because he stays busy making it.

Watch the interview clip above.

Hammer Speaks On Tupac, Beef With Jay-Z, And His Back-In-The-Day Days As An Emcee (Video)

Okay, score on for REVOLT TV for a full hour of power with MC Hammer. He’ll always be MC Hammer to me. Respect! I still have a chip on MY shoulder about how folks dissed MC Hammer, calling him something ‘other’ than Hip-Hop… Nah, MC Hammer was Hip-Hop; just maybe not how everyone else was doing, and maybe not how many people preferred at the time.

Hammer joined REVOLT to talk Tupac, his former beef with Jay-Z and more!

Furious! How you’ll feel… starting right when you see the little girls skipping out massa’s big house onto the porch. Guaran-DAMN-teed! “The Birth of a Nation” hits theaters October of this year. Nat Turner’s story brought to the big screen.

Revolt: A3C Festival Recap (Video)

“It just happened organically… That’s what so great about this whole sh!t. Everybody in Atlanta is in their own lane…”

FORTEBOWIE

Been talking about it. Been telling you don’t miss it. So, if you missed it… your bad. However, Revolt TV has done us all a solid with a recap of the five day festival.

‘The ninth annual A3C Hip-Hop Festival took over Atlanta last week, bringing together a slew of burgeoning and established artists, thousands of fans, and media and industry experts from all over the world. Originally founded as a three-day showcase that took place in one venue in Atlanta’s Midtown section, this year saw the fest spread to five days at multiple locations throughout the city.’

– Revolt TV

Check out the video from this year. It’s already America’s largest Hip-Hop festival; and it’s getting bigger and bigger, folks. Be sure to be there next year. We damn sure will!

“I really love what this conference represents. I love that most of the people that you see here are business-minded and it’s inspiring to see that Hip-Hop understands that instead of letting other companies and corporations brand us and make money off of us, we’re learning now how to brand ourselves to make our own money and income outside of just selling the music.”

Bun B (of UGK fame)

Along the vein of what we just posted from David Banner [on getting a handle on our Hip-Hop art and biz]. A3C has concerts, culture, and commerce going on all the while. Great event.
