Azealia Banks stops by to discuss her upcoming album and tells us how she deals with internet trolls. She also currently has the absolute BEST laugh in hip hop.
Starting to be more active in the scene, Tantrum is a name known by many in the West Coast scene. After a monstrous showing against Dumbfoundead, which is one of the highest viewed battles of all time at 1.6 million, Tantrum went on to challenge other battlers in his region such as Reverse Live, D-Lor, even taking on out of towner Loe Pesci. Now beginning to accept battles more frequently, Union City’s Tantrum has also extended his reach in the battle rap circuit, appearing in a variety of leagues such as Don’t Flop, No Coast, and most regularly King of the Dot. Known for his aggressive style and hard hitting punchlines, Tantrum has shown time and time again that his is a force to be reckoned with.
Another West Coast veteran, Cadalack Ron may not have the most pristine reputation, but he certainly more than makes up for it in the battle ring. One of the most unique personalities in the game today, the Los Angeles native never shies away from a challenge and always beings an entertaining performance. With a storied resume featuring opponents such as Fresco, Real Deal and Caustic, Caddy Ron has more recently stepped up against newcomers The Deadman and Laugh’N'Stalk. Becoming more involved in the West Coast scene recently, Ron’s off the wall humor and creative material keep him ahead of the pack in terms of battling. Taking on West Coast colleague Tantrum, this next matchup from KOTD’s Notorious is sure to entertain.
This is the battle all the QOTR fans wanted to see. Matrimony (Harlem) vs Shooney Da Rapper (Mt Vernon). Its no secret these two ladies have been going back and forth for months due to an verbal altercation at a Sparing Session at The Secret Ultra Lounge. FINALLY both parties agreed to settle there differences in the ring to see who’s the best between the two. After it’s all said and done., who will have bragging rights when the smoke clears. Who will be considered Queen???
Rick Ross and Lil Wayne
have had hit after hit. Well they have BOTH officially been banned from a self described urban radio station in Michigan. *insert Rick Ross grunt here* The station came to their decision after growing weary of the “disrespectful lyrics* from both artists. I’ve BEEN weary of Ross’ grunting and Weezy looking like a carnie, with their misogynistic (yes that’s a big word) lyrics rolling off my back like water. As a grown person, their lyrics don’t result in me twerking or striving to be a video vixen. However, I do get the stations stance and say kudos to them. Now if someone could scrub the ink off Weezys forehead and officially have you require a prescription for cough syrup, and explain to Rick Ross that date rape lyrics will give some shady men some ideas that will result in footage on World Star, the world may have a chance……..
was arrested after being stopped at a checkpoint in Lower Manhattan. Clue was in his Range Range Range Rover Rover Rover *echo Clue voice* when police searched his vehicle and alleged to have discovered two pills wrapped in foil. Further investigation also resulted in the discovery that his license had been suspended eight times 0_o. As far as the pills, they most certainly could have been Advil or Aleve to relieve him of the chronic pain I’m certain he experiences toting that large chin around….
No wonder Busta Rhymes is looking chunky. It’s the cheeseburgers.
Bussa Bus was in South Beach Miami and had what we call a whole hood moment in the establishment Cheeseburger Baby. He entered the eatery close to 6am and demanded to cut the line. (-_-). Really Bus? You think cuz you “rawr rawr like a dungeon dragon” that you’re going to get cuts in front of those who have the munchies as well? Yeah. Aight. The Cheeseburger Baby employees was not having it, ok? Busta musta (hey, that rhymes) felt a tad salty and chose to wait for his food in his car. Once he received his order, this ninja comes back in the restaurant cussing about how his salt, pepper and ketchup were served to him on the SIDE and not on his burger…………….a WHOLE “Scenario”ya’ll. Calling employees derogatory names and such. Not a good look for those that fix your food sweetie. Had he caught the right fry cook that morning “everything would have remained raw” as far as his burger. Busta needs an order of anger management. Super sized.
……aaaaaaaand Nikki Minaj talking about she’s “lyrically better than male rappers”
I’m not quite sure how I feel about that as Lauryn is nursing her children and tax woes and staring at those Wyclef bike Speedo pics like, “I used to mess with HIM??” Kim has so much botox injected in her face she can’t spit (lyrically that is) and it seems like Nikki is the only girl doing it. Why can’t female emcees do a Hip Hop version of “Lady Marmalade” exhibiting various classes as well as sixteen bars? The world may never know.
Thisis50 & Young Jack Thriller recently spoke with DJ Jazzy Jeff for an exclusive interview!
In part 1 of our interview, he talks about judging the Red Bull Thre3Style National Finals. DJ Jazzy Jeff is one of three celebrity judges on the Red Bull Thre3style USA judging panel, which also includes A-Track and Z-Trip. All three judges presided over the regional finals (Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia) and will ultimately decide the winner of the Red Bull Thre3style USA National Finals.
The event originated in Canada five years ago and has developed into one of the country’s biggest musical properties. The original concept started as a Tuesday night experiment in a small club. In the second year the focus was regional and events were in six cities across western Canada. In 2008 the event exploded with ten regional qualifiers throughout Canada. All ten winners competed in the National Final in Toronto, during Canadian Music Week. In 2010 becomes an International event, culminating in a world final where DJ Karve was crowned as the 1st Red Bull Thr3style world champion. In 2011, the World Final format becomes a full week of events and went down in Vancouver. The Champion was Hedspin (CA). In 2012, Thre3style set the club landscape in Chicago on fire and saw Four Color Zack become Thre3style World Champion.
- Red Bull Thre3style USA National Finals will be held on April 5 at Lure in Hollywood. Doors open at 9pm and event begins at 10pm
