Think about your all-around fav emcees. Would they still be if you found out they did not pen those rhymes that have you holding them in such high regard? Welcome to the conversation.
Good breakdown by Justin Hunte on the whole ghostwriting thing. I've definitely got thoughts on it. Even put 'em in the Twitterverse from time to time. Not fully accepting or deeply butt hurt by those cats. I am a proponent of calling out folks on their sh!t... even the self-procalaimed 'god emcees.'
DJ Khaled's "Shinin" featuring Beyonce and Jay Z seems to include another subliminal aimed at Drake. But what would an outward battle between Hov and Drizzy actually look like, considering the two MCs each come from eras with differing tolerance for ghostwriting? Tyrese let the cat out of the bag during his interview with The Breakfast Club this week. He's planning to release the ghostwriters and reference tracks to all ghostwritten rhymes included on his next album under his rap alias, Black Ty. But how is lyrical greatness defined when crews are enlisted to craft classics? Stones Throw Records MC Homeboy Sandman, as well as Rude Jude from the All Out Show on Shade45 share their perspective on rap's dirtiest secret.
People forget abt that Kanye reference verse & flow for Jay Z. Young Chris whisper style getting jacked by Jay Z too https://t.co/8RVmF9Zg6x
Now, pay attention... This is some serious personal finance!
How difficult is it to become a millionaire? It's probably not as hard as you might think, if you plan ahead. Author of "Smart Couples Finish Rich," David Bach, came up with a chart showing how much money people at different ages should set aside each day in order to save a million dollars at the age of 65.

Maybe another takeaway from this: The earlier in life you start the better. So, again, we see that time is a most valuable commodity. If only I had more time (perhaps I could have more millions).
Yeah, Melo could have just stayed on the celeb tourist path laid out by the Olympics host committee when he went there to hoop for the USA. But nah man. He had to take the VICE crew out and about and bring back this; another dope ep of #StayMelo
Carmelo Anthony won some hardware when he visited Rio for the Olympics, but he still wanted more out of the trip. In this episode of Stay Melo, we spend a day exploring some of the best views in Brazil and the favelas of Rio.
What are the next steps in human evolution? Astrobiologist Caleb Scharf, who is the director of the Columbia Astrobiology Center at Columbia University, New York, and author of "The Copernicus Complex," explains how the future of human evolution could unfold

Now, I can only begin to fathom some Earthly idea of what an astrobiologist is. But Caleb offers some fascinating points to ponder above. There is absolutely no reason to believe that modern humans will continue to exist as we do over the coming milennia. Interesting to think about what we might become as a species... especially those of us who don't go to Mars (those 'Martians' will have their own evolution to go through).
Incredible. And crazy! Looks like a good idea... for a Bugs Bunny cartoon... or maybe the next Marvel movie of TV episode. Either way, fantasy has indeed become reality. Above, you can press play and watch the first ever jump, from an airplane to the Earth, pulled off with NO PARACHUTE!
Don't tell us about how hard you're grinding... Producer Hezekiah put out there on his Bandcamp that he is recouperating from a brain aneyurism, and yet he still has heat for the streets that he can serve from the shelf! Check out this "Gods" EP with features from Bilal, Freeway, Blu, T3 of Slum Village, and more.
(Peep the video spot of Hezekiah & Peedi Crakk in the studio after the jump.)
So, we talk about going to Mars. And leave it to futurists like Elon Musk, we talk about STAYING and establishing human life there. But watching this video though... Colonizing Mars means former "Earthlings" become real-life "Martians"... and that is a different kind of human; or it least it most likely would be.
If humans ever successfully colonize Mars, how would their biology change? An evolutionary biologist at Rice University and author of book "Future Humans: Inside the Science of Our Continuing Evolution," Scott Solomon, explains how humans might evolve on Mars and what significance that could have for humans left on Earth.
