Let's take a trip back into time. How about the '90's? The MCs were golden - well - some of them. Party music was relegated to its proper realm. Here lyricism was not overlooked for leaning bars. Hip-Hop even boasted a more balanced kaleidoscope of artists.

Everything was available. Profound MCs challenged thought and delivered penetrating perspectives, while inane (w)rappers spit Dr. Seuss-rhymes; there was something readily available to satisfy everyone.

During that time, two critically-acclaimed wordsmiths arose to earn a timeless legacy. Tupac and B.I.G., will be forever celebrated for their uncanny ability to use their words to provoke feeling and arouse a startling clear mental picture.

Check out the video as those two showcase the now-archaic art of freestyling.


Will the corporations ever allow Hip-Hop to fully embrace its five core elements?

Action Bronson With Food and Fun From The Festival In Jamaica (Video)



Well, well, if it isn't ol' Bam Bam at the Nyam Jam Festival in Jamaica. And what's cooking chef? Whatever it is... We're sure to say, "F#ck, That's Delicious!"

As Action Bronson's presence in the "Food World" becomes more permanent, new and diverse opportunities are popping up for the self proclaimed Human Highlight Reel. This time it popped up in the most beautiful location possible, Goldeneye Resort in Oracabessa, Jamaica. The event was entitled Nyam Jam, and even before Action knew exactly what it was, he agreed to attend. As stated in the video, there was not a single bad bite of food, and if you love hot sauces and various pepper spreads, then you really couldn't do much better. Mr. Bronson honed in on a calabasa slaw prepared by visiting Puerto Rican chef, Jose Enrique and a smoked chicken sandwich from Jamaican grill master, Gariel Ferguson. His experience at Nyam Jam inspired him so much, that upon his arrival back in New York, he immediately got cow foot stew and ate in the parking lot of Home Depot. One love.

"They just played better than us," a resigned Cam Newton admitted to a room filled with reporters. Last night (Feb. 7), following Cam's Super Bowl début, he would abruptly end the press conference. After fielding several redundant questions the Carolina Panthers quarterback would curtly explain his thoughts then leave.

"I don't know what you want me to say," continued Cam. "They made more plays than us and that's what it comes down to," said Newton. He would later explain, "We had our opportunities; it wasn't nothing special that they did." The respected QB would then cite an array of errors his team committed during its Super Bowl 50 experience.

Eventually, a seemingly agitated Newton would abruptly leave the press conference.

'Fifty Shades Of Black' Is In Theaters Today!

  

Comedian Marlon Wayans is on a journey to make his first name as big as his last, with his latest venture being the film 'Fifty Shades Of Black.' He not only stars in the comedic film; he produced it as well. The film is an outrageously funny comedic spin on the popular romance film 'Fifty Shades of Grey.' Wayans sought out to make place a comical spin on the film from the African-American perspective.

Wayans shot 'Fifty Shades Of Black' over the course of 20 days with a $5 million budget; '50 Shades Of Grey' was shot with a $75 million budget. In regards to casting, Wayans explained that they found a great casting director in Lisa Beach, but ultimately it was God who cast the film.

Wayans expressed his enthusiasm about working with other comedians in the film, as it always loves room for amazing improvisation. The film is packed with jokes as Marlon is passionate about people getting their money's worth out of the film. According to Wayans, the funniest scene of the movie is the "Magic Mike" scene. Knowing Marlon's comedic nature, we can't wait to see the film! The film also stars Kali Hawk, Affion Crockett, Fred Willard, Mike Epps, Jane Seymour, Florence Henderson, Andrew Bachelor, Kate Miner, and Jenny Zigrino. 'Fifty Shades of Black' opens in theaters nationwide today Friday, January 29! Check out the trailer below!

Toyota Misses Opportunity To Do Something Epic With Jay Electronica
Screen Shot 2016-01-27 at 5.40.39 PM

I am going to have to  find a way in the room with the decision makers when they seek to infuse Hip-Hop, culture and music in their big budget campaigns. Take the new colorful, delightfully artsy commercial with the eternally enigmatic Jay Electronic and Toyota. What could have been an epic moment in an already epic year, Hip-Hop fans were simply left flustered and, in some cases, upset.

The video is vibrant. There is a dope beat. There is a golden clash of commerce, color and culture. Early in, we see Jay Electronica writing something (presumably rhymes) and later rapping as paint bounces off booming speakers. The only problem: not a single bar is uttered during the whole 3-minute melodramatic episode. The tease was real and it only activated the savage in the rap fan still awaiting an album from Mr. Electronica.

So, we are simply left with more questions from Jay-E. That's nothing new. Mystery is his brand. Are we going to get an actual track? Will there be a follow-up commercial that reveals a new song? Does this tie-into a bigger project like Jay-Z's relationship with Samsung? We don't know, so there is opportunity to make this right. Until then...they just got a free look on a bunch of sites through an artist we respec. That beat was ripe for J.E. to rip too.

Yes, the art was cool, but we all know why we watched the whole video.

Last Saturday (Jan. 23), during an Iowa Presidential campaign, Donald Trump, made a startling statement. The braggadocios billionaire sincerely joked about his devoted supporters.  The Second Amendment advocate - known for his candid commentary - suggested that even drastic actions, like shooting someone wouldn't make him lose any voters.

While in Sioux City, the GOP gangster declared, "I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," this reported by CNN. Following the grandstanding The Don refused to elaborate on his sentiment.



Does Trump have it right?

Recently, Pharrell Williams and his financial partners made a solid power move. They have reportedly joined forces to repurchase the 50 % share previously controlled by Iconoix in their BBC Ice Cream LLC. Billionaire Boys Club is the parent company to BBC Ice Cream LLC. The popular streetwear brand was initially launched back in 2003.

In order to expand his desired vision for licensing and growth, and continued expansion opportunities, a representative for Pharrell explained to WWD these reason prompted the purchase. Thus far, the specific financial terms of the deal have not been made public.

Department stores and boutiques throughout the world sell the respected brand. Billionaire Boys Club has established flagship stores in Tokyo, New York City, and London.

Does Hip-Hop still support its MC's forays into the fashion world?
