Inglewood, CA – Chance The Rapper has been on the scene for years now, but his 2016 mixtape Coloring Book has truly propelled him into the stratosphere. Chano beat out stiff competition from Kevin Gates, D.R.A.M., Kent Jones and Desiigner to take home the accolade. Time to do our jobs. Not only that, but the 30-year-old won Best Hip Hop Artist and Best Hip Hop Song for “One Dance,” as well as R&B Song Of The Year with Rihanna for “Work.”
Drake’s compatriot The Weeknd beat out such heavyweights as Beyoncé and Rihanna to claim the spot of R&B Artist Of The Year, with Bryson Tiller being named the best newcomer in that genre. As for Hip Hop performances, Big Sean took to the stage for a short set that featured “Bounce Back” and “Moves.”

— Lil Chano From 79th (@chancetherapper) March 5, 2017

It was good to talk about funding for public education today, @chancetherapper.
— deray mckesson (@deray) March 5, 2017

It was a good night for Drake too. Chance wasn’t in attendance at the pop-heavy ceremony at The Forum in Inglewood, California on Sunday night (March 5), instead spending part of the weekend discussing funding for public education   with activist DeRay Mckesson. R&B Album of the Year went to Rihanna’s   Anti. After claiming the titles for Best New Artist and Best Rap Album just a few weeks ago at the Grammys (as well as DX’s Best Rap Album of 2016), the Chicago MC   continued to cement his spot as Hip Hop’s hottest prospect by winning Best New Hip Hop Artist at the iHeartRadio Awards. Our kids deserve more — in Chicago & in Baltimore.

The self-titled album sold 144,000 album equivalent units   in its first week and HNDRXX came in with 121,000 copies moved in its opening week. Only eight other acts have held the number one and two spots   at the same time on the chart since 1963, which is when Billboard first introduced the current iteration of the 200 chart. The release is Future’s fifth chart-topping debut for an album. Back to Back No.1
— FUTURE/FREEBANDZ (@1future) March 5, 2017

The feat has many historic implications, according to a report from Billboard. Seven days later, HNDRXX dropped to similar fanfare (also with a surprise announcement just days before the album arrived) and it too soared to the top of the Billboard 200. Not only is Future the first to replace himself on the charts since 1968, he’s also the first solo act to ever do so. Future is one of the hottest artists of the moment and that buzz was solidified after it was announced that his last two albums, the self-titled release and HNDRXX, debuted at the top of the Billboard 200 chart. The album I always wanted to make, timing is everything & with that being said #HNDRXX link in my bio
A post shared by Future Hendrix (@future) on Feb 21, 2017 at 8:39pm PST

As noted by   Rolling Stone, the debut of HNDRXX on the Billboard 200 gives Future five consecutive #1 albums, which include DS2, EVOL, the What A Time To Be Alive collaboration with Drake, and the self-titled album. The artist’s self-titled, short-notice release dropped on February 17 and the impact was felt immediately, including from some speculation that the Freebandz boss took shots at rising Brooklyn rapper Desiigner,   who some say stole Future’s style for his own use. Persistent rumors and reports that Future would be dropping an album for the third straight week   proved unfounded, and were eventually shot down by Future himself. This makes the Atlanta rapper the first artist in the six-decade history of the chart to have two new chart-topping albums in consecutive weeks.

Check out some of the La Raza collection honoring Frost below and listen to Scoop DeVille’s “Suavecito” single above. Scoop DeVille has kept himself busy producing as he’s had placements on 50 Cent’s   The Kanan Tape, Paul Wall’s   Slabgod,   Taylor Gang’s TGOD Volume 1   and Casey Veggies’   Customized Greatly Vol. The apparel is available online at or in-store. Besides preparing the album, Scoop has created a collection of merch honoring his father, Latino rap pioneer Frost. He partnered with Los Angeles-based company SSUR for the hats, jackets and T-shirts that say “La Raza,” an homage to the people represented by Frost’s breakout song when he was known as Kid Frost. Los Angeles, CA – Scoop DeVille is working on a yet-to-be-titled album and has released the first single in the form of “Suavecito.” The project will be mixed and mastered by DJ Quik, according to a press release. 4.

They’re doing it for monetary gain, man. They trying to make money off these people, man. The animated equality segment is adjacently being billed as “Disney’s first gay kiss.”
A gesture that’s not sitting well with Boosie Badazz. In November 2015, he blasted top-rated programs, Love & Hip Hop and Empire for prominently featuring openly gay characters and went the extra mile in a sitdown with Vlad on the subject in July 2016. “They trying to make everybody fuckin’ gay,” he proclaimed, as he later made the point he had “nothing against” the gay community. In a deleted Instagram post (saved by VladTV), Boosie captioned the screenshot of two cartoon male lovers with, “This is why I don’t want my kids watching these fucking cartoon shows smh.”

The Louisiana rap legend has been quite vocal about his disdain for homosexuality being displayed on television, especially for his children to witness. Like these are kids. the Forces of Evil, featured an episode titled “Just Friends.” The show included a montage of couples kissing during a live concert that included both male on male and female on female lip-locking action. They’re putting it on our culture. You got cartoons that have gays. “That’s what I think. In the upcoming live-action adaptation of Beauty and the Beast, the lead antagonist Gaston’s sidekick, LeFou (played by Josh Gad) is being officially billed as “Disney’s first openly gay character.”
As that bold move was being met with praise and backlash, the Disney XD children’s cartoon, Star vs. The Gram – Disney made headlines this week for two instances where they brought homosexuality to the forefront of their media. Gay stuff is everywhere. And I think they just trying to do it to make a monetary gain. Let kids make they own decision if they wanna go that way…You’re forcing them to be gay.”
Watch the controversial Star vs. They’re not doing it for the gays. They’re putting it everywhere. the Forces of Evil clip down below as well as the Boosie VladTV interview where he railed against “the gay agenda.” They’re not really fans of the gays. On cartoons.

Four days after “SHETHER” dropped, Remy Ma shared   “Another One,” a diss track aimed at Nicki again, which prompted #ThatWasTrashRemy to trend on Twitter. We had low riders, cholos — that whole thing — but I was never fearful of that. Read more   here. Also, Kodak Black goes back to jail and Chris Brown’s friends expose his alleged drug problems to Billboard. Foxy Brown randomly came for Remy Ma in a diss song titled, “Breaks Over,” for including old rumors about her in the diss song meant for The Pinkprint superstar shortly after giving birth to a baby girl. So far, there hasn’t been a response from Nicki on wax except on social media where she   checked Trey Songz for not immediately dispelling rumors set out by Remy that he smashed, which he eventually denied. HIPHOPDX – This week in Hip Hop, Remy Ma came for Nicki Minaj’s entire life in seven minutes in a diss track, then lost steam when she dropped a second, while Nicki is living her best life. Souls of Mischief member and Hiero Imperium label manager Tajai Massey spoke with HipHopDX’s Dana Scott about Ali’s time on the label and congratulates him for his Oscar win. “Man it was stressful for me just waiting on everything,” he said. Trey’s denial was followed by Hot 97’s Ebro Darden’s denial that he also got the cakes, who said while it did make him look like the man for a second, the closest he’s gotten to Nicki was a lusty thigh grab. This poor guy really got scolded. I could get along with everybody and I used my photography to do that.” The Project Baby was ordered to five years of house arrest and any movement outside of that needed approval from a judge. To just sort of watch him bubble from the underground, from Benjamin Button, to 300, and all that kind of stuff all the way up to now, a lot of people are going to realize, ‘Oh, we’ve been seeing this guy for a whole bunch of years.’ So it’s just good to see it culminate in some accolades for him.”
TDE’s latest signee, SiR chopped it up with Features Writer Ural Garrett about coming onto the label and what it meant for him prior to the official announcement. He was originally arrested for   robbery false imprisonment, fleeing a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by a delinquent in April. ‘What are you doing? It was funny. “What’s crazy is that he’s been grinding since before he was even signed to our label. “I’m tired of reading about some shit as soon as I got something popping. Get that the fuck out of here!’ He really got upset the guy brought a real gun to the photo shoot. The very next day, the “All The Way Up” rapper   went on the Wendy Williams Show   to share that the multi-Platinum selling artist had been blocking her from red carpets and messing with her coins. Many have called on the Queens rapper’s ex-boyfriend Safaree to help Nicki pen her response, but he says he wants no parts and calls “SHETHER” the “most disrespectful record ever.”
Meek Mill was caught liking meme’s leaning in Remy Ma’s favor and was called out on it by The Game, who captioned his own diss track towards Meek Milly followed by a thirsty Instagram post wishing he could be more than friends with the Dreamchaser’s former boo. Everything happened how it was supposed to.”
Music Editor Kyle Eustice caught up with photographer Chris Cuffaro who shared some pretty interesting stories while taking pictures of some of music’s greatest artists including LL Cool J, The Game, Ice Cube and Nirvana, among others. Gangs back then were nothing compared to what it’s like today. “We’re doing this picture where they’re all holding guns, and posing with guns, and everybody had fake guns, except one guy brought a real gun,” he explained. Kodak Black Goes To Jail
Kodak Black turned up at a Miami strip club and found himself back behind bars for violating his probation on Tuesday (February 28). Listen to “Make Love” here, “SHETHER” here and “Another One” here. It was seamless. It was an easy process as far as the music and the business and stuff goes. I don’t fear them. Remy Ma Drops Nicki Minaj Diss Song “SHETHER” & Gets Paid Dust
A Timeline
It all began when Nicki Minaj reportedly dissed Remy Ma on her song with Gucci Mane,   “Make Love.” When Remy caught wind of it, she dropped a seven-minute diss track over Nas’ “Ether” instrumental and titled it “SHETHER.”
Nicki’s only response was to point out Plata O Plomo‘s lackluster sales, continue working and parlaying with the fashion world’s elite in Paris. “Y’all gotta stop with this angry shit going through drugs and all this other shit,” he says in response to the lengthy report. I’m very straight forward so it was weird and different. “I think it’s awesome, man,” Tajai said. He shared one moment that involved Ice-T, Body Count and guns. There’s also reports of his rabid mood swings, which can range from a friendly Christopher to a violent and evil Christopher. It appears it was social media that ultimately got the “No Flockin’” rapper caught up. As soon as I wanna promote a tour, a party, a fuckin’ album, anything, y’all bring up something.”

Breezy’s drugs of choice are listed in reports of the R&B pop star snorting coke, popping Molly, sipping lean, popping Xanax and smoking weed. “Having the secret that I couldn’t talk about. Then she uploaded and deleted an old risqué photo of Onika before the ass shots   on Instagram.

Chris Brown Reportedly   Dancing With Death In Drug Love Affair
Billboard published an exposé, revealing Chris Brown’s alleged struggle with drug addiction through the words of his team and former employees. The flub is reportedly costing him bank as it’s interrupted his Back and Better Tour.

Lil Wayne is proclaiming not only does he have new music on the way but he’ll be globetrotting for much of 2017 with the recent announcement of three tours. A post shared by Lil Wayne (@liltunechi) on Mar 3, 2017 at 3:25pm PST

“I know we got three more shows in Amsterdam, but the best part of that is if you coming back to any more shows, More Life is gonna be out and we can do some whole new shit,” Drake   said to the crowd. ✅

Me waiting for drake to drop more life. Before February 26
While on his first stop of the Boy Meets World Tour of Europe on January 28, Drake told fans   in Amsterdam that the project would be out before his next visit there. @Drake .. Shoutout   to OVO. Time will tell. Talk of the project started around October 23, 2016 with the release of several singles, including the Kid Cudi and Pusha T-dissing “Two Birds, One Stone”   and the 21 Savage-featuring “Sneakin’”. Rumored release dates have come and gone several times already, and though we’re not quite at Frank Ocean levels of rampant speculation and stair-case building,   there’s still enough twists and turns that it’s worth delving into. More Life   December 3 it’s about to go down.”
…Or Not
Then Drake himself shut down that date in a comment on Instagram. He played the city again on February 26 with More Life nowhere in sight. Here’s what has happened since:
December 3
We got our first specific date when friend to Drake and social media personality ItsBizkit said in an interview, “Shoutout to Drake. ITS TOO LATE"
A post shared by DJ Akademiks (@akadmiks) on Mar 3, 2017 at 5:15pm PST

Some fans speculated that it was just a reference to his show in Sweden that night, and that “More Life” was more of a sign-off than a proclamation of its release. His next two concerts in Amsterdam will close the tour on March 27-28, and with the fever pitch of expectation that we’ve gotten to already, people are going to be pretty impatient if new music isn’t out by then. And Beyond…
In the final hours of March 4, producer Noah “40” Shebib posted that he was finalizing things on the project, captioning, “I’ll be there asap just got to finish More Life.”

Shout out my long time brother Ziggy who just opened his new place. Drake fans have been frothing at the mouth for new music even since the OVO boss premiered several tracks ahead of his 30th birthday and started the buzz for the More Life playlist with regular hashtags and paternally-inspired cover art. It says "IF UR TRANSLATING THIS….

March 4
March 4 was already floating around because of some OVO Sound Radio promo associated with the date (that then got updated) but Drake kicked it into overdrive when he posted (and then deleted) this hand-written note to Instagram, which translates to “If You’re Translating This It’s Too Late” and is signed “The Boy.”

Drake’s dad also seemed to hint on March 5 that something was happening “tonight,” although it’s possible that he’s referring to his own performance at West Hollywood resto-lounge Delilah   and not the More Life release itself.

Reported cleaning girl shot by suspect. The account tweeted, “WEST LA: Home Invasion with suspect shot at Kim Kardashian home. Several outlets relied on the accounts of the Southern California Monitoring Association, a Twitter feed that monitors police scanners in the region. The swatting prank has been played on several stars, such as Lil Wayne, Justin Timberlake, Selena Gomez, and Justin Bieber, among others. Officers did breach door to enter.”
Caller disconnected as officers entered house. Reported cleaning girl shot by suspect. — Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) January 19, 2013

Neither West nor Kardashian has spoken publicly about this latest fiasco, although Kim was active on Instagram on Sunday. I hope they find out who is behind this. People can get arrested for this! Officers did breach door to enter
— SCMA (@SoCalScanner) March 4, 2017

US Weekly, one of a few outlets to publish that police   responded, published a retraction of their earlier report after confirming with the LAPD that the response to the residence never happened. Although there was chatter online stating that police responded to calls of a shooting at the celebrity couple’s residence, the LAPD has issued a statement that they never sent units to check out the supposed scene of the crime. People can get arrested for this! Its dangerous & not a joke!”
These prank calls are NOT funny! The residence was thought to be the scene of a shooting, and then the target of a prank known as “swatting” (when a person alerts police to a false crime in order to send a SWAT team in). Kardashian’s mother, Kris Jenner, was   the victim of a swatting prank in 2013, to which the reality television superstar responded by tweeting, “These prank calls are NOT funny! Might be SWATTING call Ch8.”

The SCMA account followed with, “Caller disconnected as officers entered house. Appears Kim Kardashian home is victim of SWATTING call. Los Angeles, CA – Reports on Saturday (March 5) painted a dramatic picture of circumstances allegedly going down at   Kanye West and Kim Kardashian‘s Los Angeles home. Appears Kim Kardashian home is victim of SWATTING call. I hope they find out who is behind this. Gossip Cop   added that units did respond to a West Los Angeles home searching for a possible shooter but it appears that it wasn’t the West and Kardashian home nor was there evidence of a crime in that instance as well. Its dangerous & not a joke!

And for anyone who’s under the assumption Nicki Minaj is making an original fashion statement with her one-boober evening wear, allow us to revert your attention back in time to Lil Kim at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. Earlier today (March 4), she was front and center at the Haider Ackermann show as part of the Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2017/2018, putting one of her assets on display. Remy Ma

Since the aforementioned “SHETHER” diss, Remy Ma released another diss track in the form of the publicly panned “Another One,” which prompted a response — not from Nicki Minaj but Foxy Brown of all people. Paris, FR – This time last week, Remy Ma sent the entire internet into a frenzy when she released “SHETHER,” a seven-minute, below-the-belt diss record aimed at Nicki Minaj. Minaj, 34, had her left breast fully exposed with the nipple covered by a quadrant pasty. By The Numbers: Nicki Minaj Vs.

According to a letter written to Moments In Time and shared with TMZ, the current owners of the Suburban didn’t know they were in possession of one of the greatest artifacts in Hip Hop history. The owner inquired about selling the Suburban, which has 114,000 miles on it, upon hearing that the site was selling the car Tupac was shot in. The passenger door that was shot up that fateful night on   March 9 was replaced before the owners gained possession of the car. The price tag that memorabilia site Moments In Time has listed for the SUV is $1.5 million, the same price that the BMW Tupac was fatally shot in is going for. They say that LAPD has promised to return the original door panel with the bullet holes, which will go to the new owner, upon completion of the case. They bought it from a broker the same year of Biggie’s passing because they needed a larger car for their family of six. They were informed of its significance in 2005 when investigators were working on the wrongful death trial. was fatally shot in after attending a VIBE party in 1997 is up for sale. The last remaining evidence of the shooting is a bullet hole in the passenger seatbelt, where Biggie was riding. He died an hour after the shooting. Los Angeles, CA – The GMC Suburban that The Notorious B.I.G.

Her use of Nas’ “Ether” instrumental is debatable, and so is the question of whether Nicki even cares enough to respond to the seven-minute onslaught. Remy Ma torched the Hip Hop landscape this week with her “SHETHER”   and “Another One” diss tracks slathering all sorts of insults on Nicki Minaj. Drake and the 2017 Grammys. 34), although her track record might make her seem more of an OG than her pop-friendly rival. But one thing we do know for sure is that   numbers don’t lie. ❤️

Taylor, thank you for being epic. Remy Ma is only two years Nicki’s elder (36 vs. Judging by Nicki’s Instagram feed since the tracks dropped, she seems to be going about business as usual. But they have both had significant milestones throughout their careers. Check out DX’s take on   Nelly vs.

There’s also a demand for a dinner for 10 at each stop. TMZ adds that aside from the checks for performing, Kodak is also missing out on his expensive needs backstage. So far, Kodak’s team canceled four scheduled performances that were to snag the rapper $50,000 per show, reports TMZ. Fort Lauderdale, FL – Kodak Black’s casual visit to the strip club and attendance at a boxing match last month were in violation of his house arrest terms,   which resulted in his arrest on Tuesday (February 28). In his rider, the rapper demands an Xbox or PS4 gaming system complete with the Madden and NBA 2K sport game titles, a bottle of Patrón, 12 bottles of Perrier-Jouet and Golden Oreos. Kodak doesn’t get his day in court until March 10 regarding the violations, and there’s the matter of the criminal sexual misconduct case in South Carolina still looming over him. The Florida rapper is currently jailed and missing out on thousands of dollars in performance fees as his Back and Better Tour had to be canceled in light of his recent legal troubles. Kodak Black is currently being held without bond in a Fort Lauderdale jail.

Speculation of a third straight album swamped the internet, especially after a press release for his appearance on   Ellen said that Future would be going for three straight #1 albums. Then after that, more chatter started when Questlove spoke at Pratt Institute and reportedly hinted Future had TWO more albums up his sleeve. “There is no third album,” he shared. “Just expect greatness,” Future said of his work with the boss Barbie. Future dropped   FUTURE and   HNDRXX back to back a few weeks ago and the first project has already topped the Billboard 200 with   HNDRXX   expected to follow suit when the numbers are released Monday. Read the full interview at Complex. Future is not releasing a third straight album. Future’s manager,   Anthony Saleh, attempted to squash the rumors on Twitter. 2 albums 2 number 1's in 2 weeks,gods plan ??

Elsewhere in the interview, Future spoke on what he and Nicki Minaj have been cooking up as they both have posted several pictures from an apparent video shoot on Instagram (all while Nicki has been dished two diss tracks from Remy Ma). As Friday came and went, there was not a new release from the Atlanta star, but he confirmed in an interview with Complex that there is no follow-up to   HNDRXX on the way. He also gave insight into his partnership with Reebok and the response to the music he’s released.

In speaking with XXL, Bankroll’s mother,   Terisa Price, gave some information on the project, which is expected to have 12 tracks. “He was a good guy and stuff, so I don’t feel like I should in a way,” he said of releasing new music from himself. I think it’s highly anticipated.”

Bankroll Fresh’s murder is still unsolved. Many have kept Bankroll’s legacy alive by speaking on their memories with him   and by releasing new music, such as his appearance on Jeezy’s Trap or Die 3 track “All   There.”
Now, the late rapper’s family is preparing a posthumous album,   In Bank We Trust,   due out April 24. Authorities are still investigating the case, especially as No Plug admitted to killing Bankroll in what he said   during a controversial interview with VladTV   was self-defense. HipHopDX spoke with one of Bankroll’s friends, producer Cassius Jay, about the process of releasing new music from the man born   Trentavious Zamon White. “His family can do it, but I shouldn’t be releasing none of his music because they didn’t give me the consent to do it. Atlanta, GA – It was a year ago today (March 4) that Bankroll Fresh was murdered outside of Street Execs studio in Atlanta. I don’t even really try to bring it up to ‘em because you know how the industry is right now, so I just was like whatever it was we did, we’re just gonna leave it at that and that was ‘Hot Boy’ and that was his biggest song, so I just wanted to leave it at that ‘cause we was real close.”
See Bankroll Fresh’s   In Bank We Trust cover art below. Last month, police released surveillance footage from the night of the shooting that suggests Bankroll was the first to fire a shot.   “We’re gonna have some features on there from different other artists that’s out,” she shared, “… but we’re working on it now and we were just in the studio the other day and we’ve got a hot song that’s gonna be a single. I named it ‘A Hell of a Night.’ I named ‘Dirty Game’ and I named ‘Truth Be Told,’ I named those songs.

“We’re bringing a new sound to the game, but it’s also reminiscent of the grimey 90s,” Westside said in a statement. A new lane is being carved.”
Westside Gunn and Conway are the first rappers out of Buffalo to score major label distribution, according to Shady Records. “The style and energy of Griselda Records, Gunn and Conway are infectious,” Marshall Mathers said in a press release. The Buffalo, New York rappers just inked a deal with Eminem’s Shady Records   and announced the signing with a new track featuring their new label boss on the intro. Check out Westside Gunn and Conway, aka Hall n’ Nash, on “MachineGun Black” in the track above with production from Just Blaze. Founded by Westside Gunn in 2014, Griselda Records has become a force in the industry by way of street-themed Hip Hop and a penchant for samples reminiscent   of the ’90s. We’re fusing boom-bap/dark sounds with the hipster cool kid lifestyle. As Hall n’ Nash, the duo has an untitled project produced entirely by The Alchemist on the way ahead of their full-length Shady Records debut. “We can’t wait to put them on the platform they have earned and deserve.”

Shady Records went into detail about the freshly inked deal via their website, explaining the rise of the upstate New York rappers. Conway survived a 2012 shooting where he suffered damage to his face and developed Bell’s Palsy, but still kept recording and has released a series of mixtapes and side projects. With Westside, the pair forms the duo Hall n’ Nash, an homage to the WWE tag team wrestlers. “Art is in everything we do…it’s the essence. Griselda Records acts Westside Gunn and Conway The Machine have become underground favorites in a few short years with their gritty throwback style of boom-bap. In the early 2000s, Conway earned a rep as one of Buffalo’s best and was managed by Westside, who is also his brother.

I had to figure it out as a kid. Donald Trump has faced severe criticism from the Hip Hop community and now that he is president of the United States, he has given the people more reason to question him as he attacks the media while his team seemingly   feeds the public false information. “Now we have an era where people are accepting facts from sites that are opinion sites,” Kweli says of the media’s lack of accountability. “When I grew up, you rolled a bike to the wrong neighborhood and white boys were like, ‘You nigger,’” he shares. “… I’ve dealt with in-your-face racism. “I think the rise of the Trump era has to do with that side of it,” he says in an interview with Unique Access Entertainment, “… understanding that people are not gonna vet their source and people are not gonna take their time to research.”
As we are in the internet age, Kweli says people have more information than ever before. Watch the video of Talib Kweli discussing white supremacy in the Donald Trump era above. That’s why my interactions online, a lot of people get stressed out by that. When I was a kid and didn’t even have the language or the capacity to even deal with it. A quick glance at the Black Star rapper’s Twitter feed shows how he engages with people every day, seeking to debunk those who come at him. With this, comes the power to filter the information and decide for themselves what is truth. They’ll be like, ‘How could you?’ I’m like, ‘That’s nothing.’ I dealt with, the shit that you’re getting stressed out, I’ve dealt with that in real life. Now, those people have moved on to the online platforms. They’re still in real life and I’m not a kid no more, so I don’t go to kid shit. I go through it as an adult.”
He’s changed his approach on how he handles racism, but the problems still persist as he points to a recent incident where he says he faced prejudice at a hotel because his card wasn’t working. Talib Kweli says that Trump’s rise to power is reflective of society as a whole. “Whether or not you got $800,000 in your bank account don’t actually matter when it comes to systemic oppression,” he says. “They have no checks and balances.”
Kweli goes on to say that the media is an institution with an agenda and its   “only game plan” is “to enable and protect our white [sumpremacist] status quo.”

In the interview, he says that systemic oppression has not gone away in the society where everyone can have a voice through social media. It has only transformed to the point where he’s no longer being called names on the street, but he’s having conversations online where people get offended when he talks about race.

“Never. As long as ain’t   nobody dying behind it. “Who would have thought that word would take me over?” she said. Los Angeles, CA – During an interview with L.A. So we definitely gon’ have a lot of new music that nobody ever heard before.”
Young M.A also opens up about 50 Cent being a significant influence on her decision to start rapping early on and speculated “maybe it was my calling from God.” She later explains how “OOOUUU” came to be. After her breakout single, 2016’s “OOOUUU,” turned her into one of rap’s fastest rising stars, the 24-year-old has been spitting out track after track, culminating with her latest, “Kween,” which dropped last Friday (February 27). Leakers on Power 106,   Young M.A divulged she’s dropping a new EP this month, which she called a “warm-up” for the Brooklyn firecracker’s forthcoming album, Her Story In The Making. “The music is definitely in effect,” she said. Definitely been working. She responded with restraint and poise. “At the end of the day, man, it is Hip Hop,” she said. As long   it don’t ever get that far, I think it’s good. However, as she explained, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. It’s entertainment.”
Listen to the full interview above. It was so weird how I was like setting myself up for it. “I never thought, ‘I’m going to make this a song one day,’” she added. What we’ve experienced on the battling tip has been going on in Hip Hop for years. “It’s not like this is something new, you know what I mean? I get it. “I know a lot of people, a lot of my supporters been waiting and it’s been a minute and I even feel weird not having nothing out. There are certain songs you’ll hear me say it in ad-libs. So this month I will be dropping an EP, at the end of March. It’s part of the culture, you know what I mean? “It’s crazy because we used to say it all the time to each other. I used to say it every now and then on like certain songs even before ‘OOOUUU’ actually came out. We don’t want another 2 Pac and Biggie situation. I was already saying it.”
Of course, it was only a matter of time before she was asked about the current beef between Remy Ma and Nicki Minaj   (albeit covertly), which has been a topic of conversation for nearly a week. Unfortunately we had two greatest of all time — we had to lose them. This never came to my mind. It was just something we said as, you know, bros or whatever. That’s all that matters, you know what I mean? In fact, she revealed she’s actually dropping two EPs and calling one of the them   Her Story. That was probably like the most tragic way to go about Hip Hop.
