am not quite sure why the gay community is so up in arms over it. In hip hop it is usually used to suggest weakness, like “pussy” which, I guess, who cares really. It is a million miles from saying, “you weak, you can’t take a bullet up the nostril you faggot” and saying “hey faggot, Imma kill you for having a boyfriend”.

The difference between Jay-Z and Kanye, is Jay-Z wants power and Kanye wants freedom
Being raised in a single parent household in Marcy’s Projects haunts Jay-Z the way being a child laborer in London haunted Charles Dickens
While, admittedly, how far is a fourteen year old gonna go? Perhaps a little further than this.
So that makes three tracks that may end major… two more than Blueprint 2 and three more than Watch The Throne … Stream It Here…
‘I don’t know at what point exactly it started to be a problem. I just remember liking it more and more’,
It’s an unnervingly simple, aggressive, it’s his leanest and most direct effort
“If you are with with someone you love tonight, hold on to em real tight” Kanye sings, sending us home from three days of music and mud, torrential rains, and overcrowding, with love on our mind.
The hard thing to keep in sight is that she is a self-made woman. In press releases and MTV shows, there are two realities sort of colliding but speaking to her, she’s just a kid who has worked very very hard to put herself in a position to succeed
Weezy sure ain’t putting up any of his talent and while the promise of the biggest star in Hip Hop might have you guessing, I think even Jay-Z won’t be enough, maybe Jay-Z and Kweezy but there ain’t no Drake and there ain’t no Rick Ross in Hut 97’s future now is there?
He is clearly gay! And he is an important part of the hip hop community, so isn’t it about time that gay rappers come out? This week NBA center Jason Collins was the first male US athlete to come out as gay, shouldn’t rappers do the same
Personal best was the great “Blocka” with all the reggae influences gone and song emerging as a singalong, but a scary one. Pusha T holds the stage very well, maybe better than Fab later in the evening, he is all attitude and intimidation.
There’s a cool caginess about Fabolous, he doesn’t let you see him sweat and his performance has an edge of implied arrogance just because the effort seems so minimal. His connection to the band and to the audience is devoid of anything approaching a big gesture
a perfect rap pop hook on a great production, certainly one of Pusha’s great moments, behind the Kanye masterpiece and the Tyler featuring track. Even Jay-Z is real good here, a small but a powerfil verse that blows away “Open Letter” There is something very unbecoming about a man as powerful and rich as Hova non-stop fucking whining.
The latest in a line that goes back at least to Marvin Gaye and maybe more like Chuck Berry and Louis Armstrong, black boys damaged by the USa and breeding in into eccentric far reaching art.
They haze little crossover appeal, while absolutely having the essence of the genre down to an art form their g men rhymin’ and rhythm the real deal but it is narrower in scope, he doesn’t break white. Certainly, Pusha “never could take the intimicacy” T seems to not quite know how to deal with his skills while Fab is happy with his
We don’t need another hip hop star gone and Weezy obviously needs help, either to fix the seizures or get off the codeine or both. This is a risky bloody business and the end results should be self-evident.
If you’ve listened to “Bastard” and “Yomkers” you might be wondering what Tyler’s next solo will be like? Will it be a hip hop star heavy extravaganza and that will be the end of Tyler as we know him?
After promising to never go to another festival in my life, not even Governor’s Ball on Randall’s Island while you are at least not stuck for the night in a sleeping bag, I bought a three day VIP pass for the June 7th to 9th long weekend.
Black Hippy are headlining this years Paid Dues gig in March and the list of names is confusing : Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dom Kennedy, Tech N9ne, De La Soul, Immortal Technique, Hopsin, Joey Badass, Grouch & Eligh. Tech N9ne and De La SOUL? Surely not.
I can’t imagine any one else, Jay-Z folks?, coming close to this political statement and artistic mayhem. It doesn’t matter how good or bad it was, and a half hour Lupe rap sounds like hell on earth to me, just the sheer thrill of open political dissent in the closet area of an Inaugural is thrilling.
Coldplay are the Blue Man Group of rock and roll, they keep on forcing us to participate when we just wanna consume em. Jigga thinks he is Frank SInatra when he is actually Al Martino. Chris will do anything for us, Jigga wants us to do anything for him. And both artists are past their prime.
West was important rock and roll, a sound that made sense in 2012 and broke through the morass of nostalgia and into the 21st century with an inspired take on his career. All bass and rapping, without an ounce of respect for the hallowed halls or the needs of the performers around him, or an audience of millions upon millions
