Producer Ron Browz Declares That He Gave The ‘Ether’ Beat To Jay-Z Before Nas Back In The Day (Video)

Man. Just think back to how hard the ‘Takeover’ came in for that JiggaNas battle back a good while ago. That was an ouch hit, definitely leaving a mark and making Nasir wobble. But then came ‘Ether’… that KNOCKOUT!! And Nas wins hands down with the Hip-Hop ‘hands’ that song put on Jay. But what if Jay was the one that dropped fire on that beat? Would Nas be the one that history records got ‘Ethered’ (hmmm)?

Harlem producer Ron Browz has produced for some heavyweights in the industry. He sat with Sway In The Morning to talk about his career and production credits for iconic songs like ‘Ether.’

Marvin “Krondon” Jones III Speaks On Starring In ‘Black Lightning’ And His Rap Career (Video)

Been really into the latest addition to The CW’s #DareToDefy lineup, “Black Lightning.” Dope from all angles. And a word on casting: When ‘Scooter’ from “Living Single” (shout to the homie @65phenom aka BigDee for that non-trivial bit of TV trivia) is the hero… AND your main bad guy is KRNDN aka Krondon (of Strong Arm Steady)… AND you have Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil at the helm… your show is Black af and lit as ‘Lightning!’

*needle scratches record*

But waaait. Krondon is on TV as the villain?? Doooope! Watch him speak on that and other stuff in this interview.

Ali Shaheed Muhammad & Consequence Speak On ‘A Tribe Called Quest’ Being Snubbed By The Grammys (Video)

Could you file this in the ‘butthurt’ folder? You could, but that is an egregious oversimplification. Come on. Not even a ‘nomination’ for their last album? Whether or not you agree, ATCQ should at least be heard on this. Sway thought so…

Ali Shaheed Muhammad and Consequence of A Tribe Called Quest, stop by to talk about their last video and their collaboration with Billionaire Boys Club. They ended up getting into the Grammy’s Snub of their last album and what that meant.

Snubbed By The Grammys, But The Tribe’s Quest Goes On (Video)

Hmm… a lotta business being spoken of in this clip. Might want to pay attention to how you hustle to maintain. Tribe’s got a name folks recognize. But don’t think them dropping their last album means they’re ready for rest. Naaaaah, son. Recognize!

Town Hall With The “Black Panther” Stars (Video)

By now, you know opening weekend for “Black Panther” was epic! Sway, Heather, and Tracy get into all kinds of topics related by the movie and relevant to us. Wakanda Forever!

Dee-1 Speaks On His New Album, His Career & Life Thus Far, And Kills It On The “Five Fingers Of Death” Challenge (Video)

Sway started off by saying, “God is great.” Truth! And Dee-1, on that mic, not too shabby. Gotta recognize that. If not now, after you watch dude SNAP on the “Five Fingers Of Death” freestyle segment of this interview, you will!

But don’t skip past the interview. Compelling content. Dee-1 talks about how a male executive ‘tried him’ (e.g. tried to make him do sexual favors). Now that is way past Industry Rule #4080 sh!t there.

Good to see Dee-1 make it through. Still standing. On God, and His Word.

Salute!

Gabrielle Union Speaks On Sexual Freedom, Her Book, And Husband Dwyane Wade Reuniting With Lebron James (Video)

Daaaamn, Gab! Started flipping your “fun switch” at 5? Trolling for Black men in the Yay Area in later years? Telling the young ladies to demand that good ‘gina gobbling AND azz-eating from these men out here (because reciprocity)? You wild out here like that?!

Okay, women’s liberation for real. FREEDOM… sexual and otherwise! Well, go ‘head Being Mary Jane on ’em then *wink*

(That ain’t all. Just some “juicy” bits to lure you in. Actually a very thoughtful interview. Balanced. Talking to a grown woman.)

You. WANT. To. Watch this whole interview! It goes down (everyone does, watch)!
