(AllHipHop News) Earlier this month, Rick Ross released his eighth studio album Black Market. Before the Maybach Music Group boss launched his decade-long career, he was a fan of Hip Hop. Tidal tapped Rozay to share the five albums from other artists that changed his life.

Ross named the LPs in no particular order, but his entire list includes projects from the 1990's. The Miami native named Trick Daddy's Based On A True Story (1997), OutKast's Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik (1994), 2Pac's All Eyez On Me (1996), The Notorious B.I.G.'s Ready To Die (1994), and Jay Z's Reasonable Doubt (1996).

The exclusive video also featured Ross speaking about each album and its impact on him and the culture. In addition, he offered personal comments about Pac and Biggie.

"Of course we lost great artists, but 2Pac was the artist I witnessed grown men cry for," said Ross. "When I think of 2Pac, I can't go without thinking of Notorious B.I.G. - Christopher Wallace. Rest in peace to both of those icons who I feel are the two most influential artists."

(AllHipHop News) Tech N9ne is one of the most respected rappers in the game. That is proven by the fact the indie artist can secure features from some of the top stars of the culture like Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, T.I., and Busta Rhymes.

[ALSO READ: Eminem, 50 Cent, Slaughterhouse, Tech N9ne & More Included On "Southpaw" Soundtrack (TRACKLIST)]
Despite his proven musical track record, Tech is not surprised some top-selling acts have not reached out to him to work together. The co-founder of Strange Music sat down with Montreality, and he discussed not getting calls from Roc Nation representatives Jay Z and Rihanna.

"Look at me though. Jay Z, if he sees this [picture of me] - I mean what is he going to say? He's going to say, 'That's Tech N9ne? That ain't the guy I remember back when we went on tour. He's worse now,'" stated Tech. "What is Jay Z going to do with that? So it has to be music driven."

He added, "Rihanna looks at that, [and she'll say,] 'Uh, what the f*ck is that, dude?'" Then they hear my music, and it's like, 'Oh, that's that guy. This n*gga looks like he's about to say, 'Hail Satan, see you in hell.'"

Tech went on to explain the photograph of him with what may be mistaken as a satanic symbol on his head actually stands for "worldly angel." The creator of Strangeulation Vol. II insists his talent speaks for itself and he is never changing his image.

(AllHipHop News) Atlanta-based rap stars Big Boi, Killer Mike, and T.I. are defending a Mississippi high school student's First Amendment rights. The trio is among a host of concerned citizens that filed a brief to the United States Supreme Court on why rap music is an art form protected by the Constitution.

[ALSO READ: Killer Mike Talks Politics, Social Justice, Donald Trump & More With Bernie Sanders (VIDEO)]
Taylor Bell (aka T-Bizzle) was suspended from his high school in 2011 after releasing a song about two school coaches accused of sexually harassing other students. The allegations have not been denied by the school. Bell was forced to transfer, and he later sued his original school. While he lost in a lower court, he is now hoping the Supreme Court will take his case.

Killer Mike, T.I., and Big Boi were also joined by Pharoahe Monch and Jasiri X in adding their names to the brief filed on behalf of Bell. Erik Nielson of the University of Richmond, Charis E. Kubrin of the University of California-Irvine, and Travis L. Gosa of Cornell University are among the main authors. Professors from several universities including USC, Columbia, Georgetown, Northwestern, and UCLA also signed on as friends of the court supporting Bell.

The brief references the artistic value of several Hip Hop acts including Afrika Bambaataa, Jay Z, Tupac Shakur, Eminem, Nas, Snoop Dogg, Ice Cube, Kendrick Lamar, Joey Bada$$, and more.

[ALSO READ: N.J. Supreme Court Rules Rap Lyrics Cannot Be Used As Evidence In Case]
Check out some of the passages from the amici curiae brief for "Taylor Bell v. Itawamba County School Board" below.

Hip Hop history/Afrika Bambaataa

Hip hop-a cultural movement comprised of performance arts such as MCing ("rapping"), DJing ("spinning"), breakdancing ("b-boying"), and graffiti ("writing")-began as a response to these dire conditions. Pioneers like Afrika Bambaataa (once a gang leader himself) used spiritual and political consciousness ("knowledge of self") to develop hip hop as a tool for ending gang violence by providing an outlet that transformed the inherent competitiveness and territoriality of gang life into something artistic and productive. Dance competitions, rap battles, and other competitive performances replaced actual fighting, and rap in particular eventually became an alternative, legal source of income for blacks and Latinos otherwise cut off from labor market opportunities.

Jay Z

In his memoir, Decoded, Jay-Z-one of the best-selling artists in history-recounts being following around New York City by the same "hip hop cop" for seven years and, at one point, being arrested for no reason other than so police could "paint the picture of me as a menace to society." JAYZ, DECODED 162 (2011). Jay-Z explains why rappers, as opposed to artists in other genres, receive such treatment: "The difference is obvious, of course: 11 Rappers are young black men telling stories that the police, among others, don't want to hear."

2Pac

Perhaps recognizing the transformative power of hip hop, both in the U.S. and abroad, the Vatican included the song Changes by Tupac Shakur (a rapper well known for using violent rhetoric to attack institutions of power) on its official MySpace playlist in 2009. Jo Piazza, Tupac Song Selected for Vatican Playlist, CNN (Dec. 4, 2009). The song includes lyrics like "Give the crack to the kids, who the hell cares, one less hungry mouth on the welfare" and "My stomach hurts, so I'm looking for a purse to snatch." The Vatican- unlike the Disciplinary Committee and Fifth Circuit-apparently recognized the difference between artistic expression and literal truth.

Like Tupac Shakur, Taylor Bell was using his music to effect changes. In the final portion of the video for his song PSK da Truth, Bell says that in rapping about sexual misconduct at his high school, he is trying to raise awareness about similar injustices around the world: "It's something that's been going on, you know, worldwide for a long time that I just felt like, you know, I needed to address."

Nas

Songs like Ether reveal some of the most basic characteristics of rap as a creative form. Not only is the genre imbued with an inherent sense of competitiveness, it also is "a complex linguistic art where words are constantly in flux, changing meanings and intentions, texture and sound." ADAM BRADLEY, BOOK OF RHYMES: THE POETICS OF HIP HOP 89 (2009).

Conclusion

The decision by the court of appeals punishes a student for his art-and perpetuates unfair and inaccurate stereotypes-by mischaracterizing often used rap music phrases as "threats." The decision either failed to understand, or failed to acknowledge, Taylor Bell's rap song as artistic expression. As a result, Bell's petition for certiorari should be granted.

Jay Z and Beyonce Win "Drunk In Love" Lawsuit

  

Jay Z and Beyonce end the year off with a court victory over a Hungarian singer that claimed the couple used her voice on their song "Drunk In Love."

Mitsou, the singer, said that her song was used without permission and is a "constitutionally protected work of art."

She claims her singing was digitally manipulated and then sampled without her permission in a Manhattan court.

Mitsou, real name Mónika Juhász Miczur, dropped "Gypsy Life on the Road" in the US in 1997 and the song can be heard in the beginning of "Drunk In Love."

Even though use of her voice was not in dispute, Mitsou still lost the case over a very specific provision.

Judge Cynthia Kern threw the case out because Mitsou went after Jay and Beyonce under the Civil Rights Law, which protects a "name, portrait, picture or voice used for advertising or trade purposes without written consent."

Judge Kern said her grievance doesn't apply in cases like this, according to the New York Post.

"It is undisputed that the 'Drunk in Love' song and video are works of artistic expression and, pursuant to well-established law, they are therefore exempted from the Civil Rights Law," Kern said.

Mitsou also argued that the Civil Rights Law applied to her, because the song was used in ads and an HBO television special.

(AllHipHop News) According to multiple reports, Rita Ora has filed a lawsuit against her record label Roc Nation. The British singer is seeking to be let out of her contract, claiming the agreement with Jay Z's company violates California law.

[ALSO READ: Rita Ora And Chris Brown Perform "Body On Me" On Jimmy Kimmel]
Ora signed her deal when she was 18, but The Voice UK coach believes Roc Nation has now focused most of its attention on the sports management wing. The complaint also mention Jay's other business endeavour Tidal.

"When Rita signed, Roc Nation and its senior executives were very involved with her as an artist," the suit states. "As Roc Nation's interests diversified, there were fewer resources available and the company suffered a revolving door of executives. Rita's remaining supporters at the label left or moved on to other activities, to the point where she no longer had a relationship with anyone at the company."

In addition, Ora claims Roc Nation's transition from being distributed by Sony to being distributed by Universal has caused issues for her career. The suit also refers to Roc Nation as a "diminished" label with "only a handful of admittedly worthy heritage superstar artists."

Ora is looking to use California's "seven year rule" law which allows artists to break from their contracts after that time period. However, previous cases have ended with the record companies being given the ability to sue the artist for "lost profits" on uncompleted albums.

The 25-year-old "R.I.P." performer's deal reportedly requires her to release up to five albums with a "pay or play" provision. She has only released one album while at Roc Nation, 2012's Ora.

The rest of Roc Nation's current label division roster includes Jay Z, J. Cole, Jay Electronica, Rihanna, Willow Smith, Vic Mensa, DJ Mustard, and others. Since its launch  in 2008, only Jay and Cole have released more than one album through the company. Meanwhile, Rita Ora has already been pulled from the list of label acts on the Roc Nation website.

(AllHipHop News) Rick Ross returns with his 8th studio album Black Market on Friday (December 4). The LP features appearances by Mariah Carey, Mary J. Blige, Chris Brown, Nas, Future, and more. However, none of Rozay's Maybach Music Group artists show up on the project. The Miami native discussed MMG's absence from Black Market with Hot 97.

[ALSO READ: Rick Ross Releases 'Renzel Remixes' Mixtape Featuring MMG, Lil Wayne, Nas & More]
"We're actually in the middle of recording Self Made 4 that we're gonna really, really make big and special," explained Ross. "It's really going to be built around the chemistry of all the artists that's on the team."

Ross once again downplayed the perceived tension between MMG stars Meek Mill and Wale. He told Ebro In The Morning that misunderstandings between the crew happens, but they eventually move past the issues.

The interview also included Ross speaking about writing for other rappers. In particular, he touched on penning lyrics for Dr. Dre during a studio session with the legendary producer for Rozay's God Forgives, I Don't album.

"I was in the studio when me, Dr. Dre, and Jay Z did '3 Kings.' I was in the studio with Dre. I actually did five records with Dre in maybe two hours," Ross revealed. "I was like, 'Dre, this is the beat I want for me right here.' I went over into another room, wrote my verse, wrote Dre's verse, and sent what I had maybe an hour later to Jay Z. Jay always do his thing."

(AllHipHop News) Sometimes artists are able to live up to giving their album a name that defines greatness (see Jay Z's The Blueprint). Other times rappers fall short of the expectation an album title creates (see Iggy Azalea's The New Classic). Newcomer Post Malone appeared to make a bold statement by announcing his debut studio LP would be called Album Of The Year.

[ALSO READ: Post Malone Talks Working With Kanye West On "Fade" (VIDEO)]
The "White Iverson" performer sent out a message to his 125,000 Twitter followers overnight that read, "my album is called 'Album of the Year.'" Malone returned to the social media site this morning to clear up that he was joking about the name of his forthcoming project. See Post Malone's tweets below.

Pun's Wife: Big Pun Did Not Hit Jay Z With A Bottle

Pharrell Claims He Didn't Get Punched By Jay Z

  

Photo via Pharrell

Rumor has it Pharrell and Jay Z recently got into it over Pharrell allegedly backing out of a deal with Tidal. Allegedly they got into it so bad, that Pharrell now has a black eye. Pharrell showed up to A&E's 'Shining A Light' concert with a very noticeable black eye. Who punched P? Was it Hov? Allegedly Pharrell told his family and friends that the cause of his black eye is from a spatula. He claims he and his wife were just playing around in the kitchen and a spatula flipped up and hit him right in the eye. Domestic violence? Accident? Are you buying this story?
