50 Cent tried out for the role of Huey Lucas in the 2007 film American Gangster (eventually won by Chiwetel Ejiofor, thank God). This is his best try. Hat tip to 2dopeboyz for the link.
You already know what it is with me and the Harlem phenom spitter. Azealia sits with Peter Rosenberg to discuss her process as she readies the next project Broke With Expensive Taste. I’m sure her record will have an incredible impact on the music world, with hip-hop feeling some of its ripples. Video after the jump. (more…)
This kid is 15 and posted his video on Reddit. I found it and watched it. It was worth the time spent. I’m going to bypass the fact that his name is T.O.K.E.N. and commend his skills. Bravo.
2Chainz and Stephen A. Smith should do a track together. They have speech skills and humor that is unmatched in their respective fields. It would be a history-making moment.
Ty Dolla $ign drops the video for his “Paranoid” remix featuring a verse from Bobby Ray and Mustard on the beat. The original version of this track appeared on Ty’s Beach House 2 tape.
This guy is like if Eminem and Tek 9 had a lovechild with Halloween. He can rap though.
The way to make profit in the game, according to Boldy James, is to keep your overhead costs low and to stretch the product and your labor as much as possible for maximum returns. Try not to stink up the house, though, ’cause Grandma can smell that and might call the cops on ya funky ass.
DJ Enuff hosts uptown hustler Bodega BAMZ. Very aggressive, criminal rhymes that work just fine for crooked cops and drug fiends.
Remember how I was telling everyone and they mama about Denmark Vessey’s new retrospective mixtape Don’t Drink The Kool Aid? Here’s a video from it. Be original.
So, the short-term plan: meet Azealia, do the Interview Of A Lifetime, wait for her to propose, live on the Cancun playa for the rest of my days. On the off chance that she’s reading this, I like Geminis, Azealia, and will be the Rohan to your Lauryn. Aight, I’m out. Peace.
Revolt TV. Take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that, take that.
Mac Miller has a good musical sensibility, and is a talented lyricist. He’s combining his powers well.
Durk drops off the visual for the Young Chop-produced “Bang Bros” off his newest tape, Signed To The Streets. Don’t sleep on that project, or the fact that this is the best rap song in recent memory that shares a title with a popular porn site.
Instructions for Drake: take him seriously.
