Raising a girl is far much harder than raising a son. The same methods can’t be used when raising daughters that you would use to raise your son. This weeks throwback goes out to the fellas with daughters. After seeing the images circling the internet of Nas daughter who I hold much respect for. I can see why he wrote a song like ‘Daughters’, knowing that this day would soon come that she’s posting a few inappropriate images on the gram and across the net.
You dropped outta school, you lost your principles I know people backstab you, I feel bad, too But this “fuck everybody” attitude ain’t natural But you ain’t the same, this ain’t KumbaYe But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye You gave him twenty million without blinkin’ He gave you twenty minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’? “Fuck wrong with everybody?” is what you sayin’ But if everybody’s crazy, you’re the one that’s insane
What we talkin’ about? Real shit, or we talkin’ about rhymes?
What’s the beef about between Jay-Z and Kanye West? JAY Z says he has a legitimate grudge with the college dropout. Supposedly Kanye crossed the line by talking much shit about the 4:44 rap stars family during one of Kanye West rants broadcasted across the world. Jay says him and Kanye has had arguments in the past but never crossed the boundaries between one another. Him and Kanyes friendship is no where near being repaired. It’s going to take a lot more than a sorry to repair things or this will turnout another JAY VS Dame fight. And being we saw Dames empire fall we kind of know who’ll win this war. Who will win the war between JAY-Z and Kan Yeezy?
For the First time ever in Billboard chart history, 5 Hip-hop albums swept the first top 5 spots. JAY-Z’s 4:44 is number 1 for the 2nd week in a row. Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN takes the number 2 spot. French Montana’s Jungle Rules debuts at number 3.DJ Khaled’s Grateful holds the number 4 place and 21 Savage’s Issa Album sits at number 5 after dropping down from number 2.
This is a truly historic moment in Hip-hop as JAY-Z releases another documented song or short film with footnotes from his latest project 4:44 which could mean $$$. The number 4 on the standard computer keyboard is the dollar sign. Just some food for thought. JAY-Z’s Kill JAY-Z toils as a track where JAY slices down his entire character.

Real Hip Hop. No Talking, No interrupting, just straight Hip Hop non stop. Come & join, listen, debate & chill out. You probably haven’t heard but The Mixtape King has a live streaming channel on YouTube playing non stop Hip-hop hour after hour.
This was not Future’s best come back he had I hope. Dumb shit isn’t the best way to respind cause in the end, you look dumb. Tyrese made a song awhile back called dumb shit and this is one of those great dumb shit moments.
A few hours ago I discovered JAY-Z continued his record with most number one debuts with number 14. Following a week of exclusive streaming on Tidal in which play counts were not reported. JAY-Z 4:44 album has debuted #1 on Billboard 200 in the second week. 4:44 is JAY-z 14th number one album. Moving 262,000 falling behind Kendrick Lamar, Drake’s and Ed Sheeran’s sales.
Beyonce performed a song named sorry, where she’s blatantly not apologizing for hurting JAY-Z by not responding to his calls and she’s doing it purposely because clearly, he done hurt her ass. Now we know what the incident in the elevator was all about between Solange beating JAY-Z ass. Definitely was all about HOV fucking with Becky with the good hair. HOV comes back with song 4:44 rebuttal apologizing for his cheating on Beyonce with Becky with the good hair. Between the two songs, you can see the couple has squashed the issues within the relationship and decided to rekindle and strengthen what they have worked on over the elapsed 10 years with each other.
The JAY-Z 4:44 video is a demented video with meaning to it. Amidst all the anarchy that operated within the Beyonce & JAY-Z bond that was foreign to the world, the video reveals all inside their relationship which was many absurd moments they’ve gone through before they transferred into a level of prominence, just like anyone elses relationship. People think because they’re famous they’re blameless.
It’s agreed Hip-hop Was Born but why? Was it for Story Telling?, It’s an organic explosion of culture that merged different aspects of creativity, dance, art, and music. Each aspect has evolved and been built superimposed since the 1970s when hip hop emerged and the term was coined.
DJing, for example, is now a universally accepted art form. Graffiti art, Banksy is a globally recognized artist. Rapping and Hip-hop music dominates pop music. What do art and expression do? That’s a huge question. But Hip Hop to me is usually about a new perspective on the world that surrounds and gives a narrative to the urban experience, epitomized by Grand Master Melle Mel’ The Message.
Hip Hop wasn’t designed. It was born. If it had a purpose early on, that purpose was to party. DJs kept the party moving. Emcees professed adulation for the DJ. Break dancers danced to the beats the DJs spun and graffiti artists did a whole bunch of stuff including promoting the parties that the DJs spun at which the emcees spoke about which the dancer’s danced at…and on and on and on until the break of dawn.
Hip-hop was born out of a culture dedicated to a party, but it’s grown into much more and devolved into much less, but no one can say it was invented.
2PAC – Hit Em Up
The term Hip-hop was born following a culture of people who gathered to escape a nation filled with human brutality. The nation arose upon a group of people, the African Americans. These people were not accepted in society as equal, so these people who were displaced of equal opportunities adapted to each other which brought the commencement of Hip-hop.
Bringing together their own arts and other manifestations of human intellectual performance to be viewed collectively by each other gave the African Americans a feeling of pride and power. Hip-hop had become a body of motivation, inspiration, and acceptance. We have all observed Hip-hop emerge and at the same time immerse. What once was used to help educate, build and transform each other is now being used to tear down, destroy and kill one another.
KRS1 – Bridge Is Over
Hip-hop beef back in the 80s always went as intended, just battle raps. Rappers went at each other’s heads lyrically just to question each other lyrical skills out by dropping a few verses, cuss words and diss songs to see which emcee dominated. You would hear each emcee verse or song, judge it as a listener and say who you felt won the rap battle.
Hip-hop was always about fun and dance to put it simple and plain. Where it’s headed now, we don’t actually know but I’m hoping the Hip-hop culture brings it back to the origin when all the rap battles were for the stage.
The rappers in this age have taken the same beats, words that were formerly used in songs like “The Message” to build a culture and now use these same expressions along with an unmatched dysfunctional mindset to make the culture of this mass of Giants a much weaker force.
Hip-hop is now driving this generation to not use tools that can aid a culture to improve. JAY-Z vocalized this in his song Family Feud “Nobody wins when the family feud, we all screwed cause we never had the tools”. Hip-hop was always a musicology that carried an expression of emotions. The culture has forgotten where it originated from, so, it can’t comprehend where it’s going.
