Azealia Calls T.I Coon and Iggy "is not Hip-Hop"


Is Ms. Banks crying?! Damn it aint that deep,  I feel her but Hip-Hop will always belong to us.  What belongs to "us" always will. But it is our responsibility to keep the truth alive by teaching the youth about the accomplishments of African-Americans instead of the ignorance that is being perpetuated. This is by far her most candid interview, I really feel like I got to know her as the artist, not the twitter ranting hot head but I think she's better to redirect her energy. She's aint helping the situation by disrespecting T.I  and his wife. Talk about uplifting the black culture and communities but wanna mock, harass and taunt T.I and his wife? Kind of sounds like she's tryna sell records?. Best she put it in a record and stop attacking people. Just state the facts and keep it moving.  I got much love for Azealia and really don't like seeing her caught up in her emotions like this. Passion is one thing but don't give em everything...

D'Angelo releases "Black Messiah"

Mr. Brown Sugar himself, D'Angelo has been slowly making his return to his roots and on midnight on September 15th he released his long awaited highly anticipated album "Black Messiah." At first thought you'd think he was referencing religion or calling himself "the savior" but D'angelo says this."It can be easily misunderstood. Many will think it's about religion, Some will jump to the conclusion that I am calling myself the "Black Messiah". For me the title is all about us. It's about the world. It's about an idea we can all aspire to. We should all desire to be a Black Messiah" With features from Quest Love and Qtip I know we will not be disappointed!

Fabolous "Lituation" [Music]

Check out this new single from Faboulous' upcoming album "Young OG" set to drop Christmas Day.  This Digital only album comes just after the Brooklyn rapper signed with Roc Nation. The bass heavy, golden era inspired track is the perfect prelude. Not sure what the hell "Liuation" means but here's what Fab had to say about it.
"This is a word that I've been hearing floating around and I thought, why not make a song out of it? It's really about a situation that can get lit", he said. "You can come into a situation and it can be (calm) and you can turn it up and get it a little lit" ok Fab : /
