Fresh out of jail, Boosie’s arrival home has been coupled with a few unreleased tracks seeing the light of day. First there was “Wartime” with Webbie and “Same Game,” now we get “Came2DaCan” featuring fellow incarcerated Louisianian C-Murder over production by Craig B of Beats By The Pound. Show More Summary
Game freestyles while on the Tim Westwood TV, throwing in a slight at 50 while Suge Knight catches the brunt of his words after Suge characterized Game and Kendrick Lamar’s deals with Interscope as “slavery” while on Arsenio. He also...Show More Summary
1. Joakim Noah should get MVP consideration. No, that’s not saying he should win or anything of the sort, but he at least deserves to finish in the top five. The team has rallied around him since Derrick Rose’s injury and over the past two years has become the face of the franchise. Show More Summary
The Pope of the Coke Talk, Al-Doe, blesses us with a new video for his Keys of Heaven standout “All I Care About.” Frequent collaborator Slick Jackson is behind the cameras for the clip, which features Doe’s trademark religious imagery spliced in with live shots of him posted up in the streets of New York City.
“Second guess this time of year, don’t matter man I told’em” Shouts to Milwaukee. I don’t think I’m in the minority when I say that the Wisconsin city’s hip-hop scene has never really been on my radar, but 2014 is proving to be a good year. WebsterX has a pretty decent track under his belt, and now, Yo-Dot with A Winter’s Ration.
The Wire, the HBO cop drama that was so much more, aired its final episode, “30,” on March 9, 2008. Despite Christopher Wallace never seeing a single frame of the show, the two will forever be linked be for not only their final day of life, but also the manual that Biggie gave us, unfortunately posthumously, “10 Crack Commandments” from Life After Death’s.
On the heels of finishing up The Week Of K.R.I.T., Big K.R.I.T.’s already ready to move on to his next big thing. That would be his sophomore Def Jam LP, Cadillactica, due out sometime this fall. And although not much can be heard, a little bit of music plays in this short teaser, giving a quick glimpse of his direction for the project.
Words By Preezy Da Kid Most music junkies can remember the first time they were hoodwinked into purchasing a wack album. The jig can come in the form of a hit single, a powerful co-sign, or the lure of high profile guest appearances and producers. Show More Summary
Someone should inform Big Rec and Diamond D they’re doing this rap thing all wrong. It’s 2014 after all. Flows shouldn’t be so intricate and drums ought to compliment our inside voices. Kids don’t like scratch hooks nowadays. Also, why isn’t this man singing on the chorus? The modern rapper ought to harmonize on a song rather than terrorize it.
The latest release from Vaughaligan Walwyn isn’t a banger. In fact, it’s far from. Instead, this sentimental track from the versatile Houston pastor-turned-rapper and Scarface is more of an album send-off than a single. Centered around...Show More Summary
The latest release from producer L’Orange is cigar and brandy music. Built around confident piano rolls, tickling vocal samples and the poetic pen of underground favorite Blu, this single from the North Carolina producer’s upcoming project The Orchid Days is extremely well-constructed and omits a sense of casual confidence that makes us want to kick back with our chin up.
Andrew Wiggins wasn’t the only national collegiate commodity on full display on Saturday. Jabari Parker’s career-high 30 points and 11 boards paced Duke to a 93-81 victory over North Carolina. Off the court, Parker has made news recently by revealing he isn’t sure whether or not he will enter this June’s NBA Draft, labeling his own desire for improvement as the reason.
The Jay Z seen dry humping his wife on stages nowadays performing “Drunk In Love” is strikingly different from the Jay Z of 1997. His debut LP Reasonable Doubt, in his mind, “should’ve went triple.” His best friend in Biggie Smalls fell victim to rap’s second earth-shattering murder in less than a year. Show More Summary
Since the beginning of March, yours truly has been highly excitable due to the fact that BOOSIE IS NOW FREE and the cluster…of fun that’s also known as SXSW being right around the corner! I’m so excited to trade the dreary constant rain in Seattle for the warmer weather in Texas. Show More Summary
Ending the regular season with a loss isn’t how any team hopes to enter the madness that is March. But when you’re Kansas and all but guaranteed no worse than a two seed in whatever bracket, life could be worse. For West Virginia, however, the victory was critical. Resumes mean everything in college basketball. The Mountaineers 92-86 win over the No.
Apparently, the curse Lil B put on Kevin Durant back in 2011 that he reversed last year is back on. For reasons I don’t care to find out about, The I’m Gay rapper just free-falled into his feelings and released another Kevin Durant diss...Show More Summary
Words By Retro Boogie Arise at 4:50am PST, fire up the laptop, check the Nike Store Twitter religiously until 5:00 am. Click the buy link as soon as the object your desire comes available, choose selected size, and pray for a good start to the Saturday. But alas, the bots beat out damn near everyone, ruining the online sneaker shopping experience for some time now.
Boosie’s back! TSS is excited. The Internet’s excited. Plenty of people who don’t even know who Boosie is are now excited. The Twitter e-philosophers who don’t like Boosie, however, are also excited, because it gives them something to bitch about online. We all win! Anyhow, here goes a couple of previously unreleased loosies swiped from our friends over at DGB.
Today in man-what-the-hell, Frank Ocean reportedly finds himself on the end of hefty lawsuit – a sum of $215K, to be exact – after he decided he didn’t want to shill burritos for Chipolte. Take it away TMZ: “According to the suit, filed today in L.A. County … Chipotle signed Frank to a $425,000 deal to sing a remake of “Pure Imagination” for a new animated ad.
