  • Today in Hip-Hop History: Big L Dropped His Debut Album ‘Lifestylez Ov Da Poor And Dangerous’ 24 Years Ago
    Aside from, eloquently stated by The Source Magazine at the time, “[coming] with ill animated lyrics, combined with metaphors that stun; a combo sure to have suckas on the run,” Big L also ushered in two emcees that are very prominent in the culture today: a then-unknown Killa Cam and a semi-established Jay-Z. The track was “8 iz Enuff.” According to “Funky Technician” Lord Finesse, who had a hand in some of the album’s production, in an interview commemorating the album’s 15-year anniversary, he said this about the track, “With that [song] L just thought he had to do a track with the rappers from his hood. And he definitely wanted to put on [those particular emcees]… We looking like, ‘How you gonna put eight niggas on one track?’ [And he was like], ‘Don’t worry, I got this.'” He definitely had it too. Unfortunately, it would be the only album released by L in his lifetime as he was fatally shot in Harlem in 1999.

  • Producer Solar Accuses DJ Premier Of “Production Plagiarism” On New Gangstarr Album; Offers Up “Original Songs” Created By Him And Guru
    While the world will have a chance to get a glimpse of the first Gangstarr album in almost two decades, the two producers who worked closest with Guru, the late founder of the famed chain and the star, have yet to settle on who will control the fate of the Gangstarr legacy. After the release of the “Family And Loyalty” single featuring J.Cole, 7 Grand Records CEO and Guru’s last known affiliate Solar has been committed to not only continuing Guru’s legacy, but also letting the world know who created the original music that has been released as Gangstarr’;s long-awaited LP One Of The Best Yet. After the publishing of the New York Times article, it was evident that Solar and longtime Gangstarr producer DJ Premier have polar opposite perceptions of who owns the music, brand and legacy, but even Premier admits in the expose “I knew there had to be material out there that [Solar] was sitting on, I could just feel it.” With Solar stating that there was and still is “no valid agreement” between him and Preemo, the healing process expected by Solar has become a battle over the Gangstarr post-Premier recordings. “Family and Loyalty” Original Song By Solar and Guru “Bad Name” Original song By Guru and Solar So Many” Original Song By Guru and Solar According to Solar, an appellate decision granted him all rights to the original masters, which leaves the Gangstarr legacy in two parts; Solar’s original production and recordings with Guru and the album that was released without granting Solar any of the credit for the songs that were written and recorded by the duo under the 7 Grand banner. For those who’d like to weigh and judge the similarities versus the distinctions for themselves, check out the “original” songs that were recorded, mastered and even copywritten by Solar and the late, great Mr. Elam and how they were remade for the Gangstarr album.

Even though he was only give na fine, Barrier told the court his lawyer back then told him he didn’t have to appear in court because he was being put in a special program called pre-trial intervention. The bench warrant pop up until Barrier’s recent return from Canada, when he was detained last month.

  • Stream Wars: Twitter Reacts to the Release of Disney+
    true
    It’s safe to say we’re in the middle of a stream apocalypse right now. Apple TV+ recently launched and Netflix has been dominating the stream wars with their award-winning original content. But Disney+ launched today and it’s definitely going to give all the streaming platforms a run for their money. Disney’s library is mind blowing because it contains Disney-owned content from Disney Animation to Pixar to Marvel to Lucasfilm to National Geographic, including old classic Disney movies and brand new original shows and movies. But it’s a family-friendly streaming platform, which means that it will be able to co-exist with Netflix and other streaming platforms (for now). The Hollywood Reporter says that Disney is allocating big bucks to produce original content centered around some of their original Marvel shows. On top of the wide selection, the Disney+ package comes with Hulu and ESPN all for $13 a month. People are already raving about being able to watch their favorite childhood TV shows at a click of a button. Disney+’s launch was met with some technical difficulties. Thousands of users reported receiving error messages. But overall it was met with seemingly positive reviews. And #DisneyPlus already crashed. Not a great start. pic.twitter.com/A1rtJkalL1 — Zack Butterfield (@zbutterz425) November 12, 2019 My kid just woke up and @disneyplus has crashed.

  • ‘Shark Tank’s Daymond John To Guest Judge Chamillionaire And E40’s Startup Investment Contest; $100K Prize For The WInner
    Angel investors and well-known rappers Chamillionaire and E-40, in partnership with Republic.co, have upped the ante for their latest startup contest, with $100K in investment funds and a guest judge in the form of Shark Tank’s Daymond John. As with previous contests, the investment will be awarded to the best woman or minority-founded startup company; a historically underserved entrepreneurial community. The contest began yesterday and ends on Friday, December 6th. To enter, startups should download the Convoz app for iOS or Android and click on the banner at the top of the home feed to see the contest details and rules. Spotlighting the absence of diversity in the startup and investment world has been a long-held mission for Chamillionaire. As he told CNBC yesterday morning, “When people say they can’t find African-American startups to invest in, that sounds a little crazy to me.” He adds, “I feel like minority and women founded startups have been historically under-appreciated so I’m honored that legends like E40 & Daymond John would be willing to help bring more awareness to this problem. Capital and information are things that our community needs more of so we are trying to do what we can to spark some change”.

  • Fabolous Reveals His ‘Make Me Better’ Record Almost Belonged to Eve
    Fabolous returned to the Drink Champs podcast and he shared a bunch of stories behind his hit records, and the beginning of his major-label career. Apparently there was a small mix up about his 2007 collaboration with Ne-Yo, “Make Me Better.” JAY-Z originally passed on the Timbaland-produced beat, and as the Brooklyn rapper was gearing up to release it as a single, he learned that the beat was also given to Eve. But after a brief conversation, the Pitbull in a skirt let him have the record. “She really didn’t know and we went to dinner, and she was like, ‘Y’all can have the record and it’s all good,’” Fabolous said. “Imagine my catalog without ‘Make Me Better’ in it.” Fab also recalled a heated conversation with Kid Cudi because the Man on the Moon rapper didn’t get credited for co-producing “You Be Killin Em” with Ryan Leslie. “He like, ‘Yo Fab, I did that joint with Ryan Leslie, I ain’t got my credit or my money,’” Fabolous said. “Cudi, bruh… why you on my line with this. ‘I’m supposed to have credit or money or something.’ You gotta relax, Kid Cudi. You blocked and everything right now… I gotta unfollow you and everything. ‘I don’t know why you calling me. That’s not even my call.’ The song is a hit already, what you talking to me for.” Another interesting story he shared was that he paid Lil Wayne 100,000 and four bottles of champagne for a song that never saw the light of day. Fabolous wanted Lil Wayne to be featured on his debut project. At the time, the then-17-year-old rapper was signed to Cash Money and on fire. “They were so hot at the time,” Fab said about Cash Money and the Hot Boys movement. “They came to the studio. I think Steve Stoute gave them 100 grand for Lil Wayne [out of my budget]. They were scorching. This Cash Money in like ’99. For the 99 and the 2000.” On top of the cash, Weezy requested four bottles of Cristal. “So the four bottles is there. We in the studio—we thinking that four bottles of Cris means they gonna come in, we gonna vibes, drink some champagne,” Fab continued. “Wayne come in, did his verse in 15 minutes, they was out. Took the four bottles with ’em. That’s my first time even seeing something like that. I’m like: ‘This shit different.'” Check out the full interview below: The post Fabolous Reveals His ‘Make Me Better’ Record Almost Belonged to Eve appeared first on The Source | The Magazine of Hip Hop Music,Culture and Politics.

  • Judge Greg Mathis Donates 50,000 Water Bottles to Flint Students
    By: Amira Lawson Television Judge Greg Mathis has made an incredible donation recently to the people of Flint, Michigan. The judge has given 50,000 water bottles to students in the school of Flint after having a conversation with several community leaders, discussing the ongoing disadvantage to clean water that Flint residents have. Principle Latricia Brown said the quantity of her students that need special education has strongly increased since clean water turned out to be rare in the residence. She also says that the children’s inability to focus will set them back for generations as students face cognitive impairment problems from cities’ lack of clean water. Mathis feels as though no parent should be put in the predicament to risk their child’s well being due to the disadvantage of clean water in the city. “It’s difficult to win the confidence of the citizens that you have allowed to be harmed,” Judge Mathis said. “If you wouldn’t risk it for your children, don’t ask these parents to risk it for theirs.” This wouldn’t be the first donation that Mathis has made. Last year, he sent out thousands of cases of water to the residents of Flint as well. Michigan authorities say that Flint’s faucet water is safe to drink, however, in response, Judge Mathis says you can’t expect families who were antagonistically affected by the emergency for such a long time, to abruptly trust in what the administration says. The Detroit Native has also collaborated with AquaTru to give nine water filtration frameworks to schools in the city. Prayers up for the residents of Flint Michigan as they continue to battle this unfortunate water crisis.

Viewers of the show were convinced that the surprise guest would be Frank Ocean, but once they learned that it was Drake they didn’t seem to be pleased.

    Paramount released a new Sonic the Hedgehog trailer ahead of its new release, and the character’s redesign may satisfy fans. The hedgehog’s teeth are a lot smaller, and his eyes are bigger, giving him a more animated look. The Jeff Fowler-directed movie about the popular Sega franchise was originally slated to be released on November 8th, but they had to push those plans back after the original design was met with negative backlash.

A post shared by Sonic the Hedgehog (@sonicthehedgehog) on Nov 12, 2019 at 3:41am PST “Thank you for the support. And the criticism,” Fowler said in May. “The message is loud and clear… You aren’t happy with the design [and] you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount [and] Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.” That same month he announced that the flick was rescheduled for Valentine’s Day release.

The Ace Venturas and those types of characters, it was an opportunity to do that again, or the Grinch or things like that. It’s always fun territory to step back into.
