About:

The prolific Baltimore Producer/Emcee Sean-Toure’ Thames has officially released his 2ndsingle called “That Blackness” from his forthcoming Melanin Magic, Melody, and the Maker album (coming summer 2021).

Energetically taking on the self-produced beat mixed and mastered by DJ CamOne, Sean praises the melanin his skin bears while giving similarly pigmented listeners the confidence to do the same. In the process, Sean addresses white supremacy with bold lines like, “I’m not your n$gga, or your coon, or your Negro. I swear to God I’m not something that you’re used to!"

The single (currently getting mass airplay on college and internet stations) follows Sean’s announcement of the Summer 2021 release of the new album, Melanin Magic, Melody, and the Maker featuring appearances from Hip Hop legends Ras Kass, Sadat X of Brand Nubian, and many others.

Sean has been having a great year already with the release of his first single “Garveyite” continuing to get spins all over the globe.

About

"Nobody’s gonna wait on you."

This is the mantra of hip-hop artist losLAUREN 718. It's what prompted him to rhyme for veteran rapper AZ in a nightclub in 2005. It’s part of the motivation that led him to being featured in The Source's Unsigned Hype column in 2006. It's why, not seeing the opportunities he desired, he opted for grad school at Florida A&M University, earning his MBA, and why he joined the Air Force. It's what's been the inspiration behind his company, and record label, Allergic to Failure, since its inception in 2012.

Splitting his time between The Bronx, and Florida, losLAUREN 718's music incorporates both traditional NYC lyricism, and Florida’s history of melody and bass. Listeners will also find a refreshing dose of honesty in his work. He points to a humorous, but authentic, line from his EP "Shades of Blue 2.5", as he raps, “Stingy with dough / fuck Coinstar / I roll my quarters,” noting, “that’s a real fact. I’m not trying to pay 10% for you to roll it up!”

Previously, losLAUREN 718 has worked with a litany of notable DJs and producers, including DJ Green Lantern, DJ Drama, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, Ty Fyffe (Foxy Brown, Busta Rhymes), QB Da Problem (50 Cent, Scarface, Joe Budden, Raheem DeVaughn), Nefarious! (Amor Jones), and Chris Prythm (Lloyd Banks, Nipsey Hussle).

Young MA Responds to her getting shot.

 Young MA was shot?


"Y'all know I be chilling..." out of Young MA's own mouth as she went on Instagram Live to address the rumors that she was shot. Sounding astonished at the statement that she had been involved in a shooting in ATL, the New York Rapper was not adamant about capitalizing off of this open Publicity opportunity. In the Live she mentions a song that she was about to drop but now thinks it would be in bad taste. So this rumor may have cheated us out of some long awaited new music.

Influenced by 2pac, Grand Puba, Keith Murray, and Mos Def, JJ Finesser describes himself as a real hip-hop emcee.

2020 Murdered Rappers

 Rappers Murdered in 2020


We Lost Alot This Year:

The Hip Hop Community has always suffered tragedies. Me, Personally, the two hardest losses I've had to endear is the lost of Tupac and Nipsey Hussle, ironically two West Coast legends. The worst detail about all these deaths is that they happened by the hands of other black men. (Let me get on my soapbox real quick and say We need to stop this CRIME IN OUR COMMUNITIES, I don't believe in Black on Black Crime.) 

But, in 2020 it seemed as, even though we all had it rough, rappers were literally targets especially in Dallas Tx. With shootings on almost every street, even Boosie got caught in the leg. Thankfully he survived. 

But what about those that didn't well lets honor them by remembering their music:

Bashar Barakah Jackson

 (July 20, 1999 – February 19, 2020), known professionally as Pop Smoke, was an American rapper, singer and songwriter. He was considered by many to be the face of Brooklyn drill. Born and raised in Canarsie, Brooklyn, Pop Smoke began his musical career in 2018. He often collaborated with UK drill artists and producers, who employed more minimal and aggressive instrumentation than drill artists from Chicago. Pop Smoke rose to fame with the release of his breakout single "Welcome to the Party" in April 2019.[7]

Following his rise to fame, Pop Smoke signed a recording contract with Victor Victor Worldwide and Republic Records, and released his debut mixtape Meet the Woo (2019). The mixtape's second single, "Dior", produced by 808Melo, reached number 22 on the Billboard Hot 100. His second mixtape, Meet the Woo 2 (2020), debuted at number seven on the Billboard 200. Two weeks after the release of the project, Pop Smoke was fatally shot in a home invasion in Los Angeles. His debut studio album, Shoot for the Stars, Aim for the Moon, was posthumously released in July 2020 and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200, with all 19 tracks from the album charting on the Billboard Hot 100.


Pop Smoke died on February 19, 2020, after being shot twice during a home invasion in Hollywood Hills, California. According to authorities, four hooded men entered the home at about 4:30 AM on February 19; one of them wore a ski mask and carried a handgun. Police received news of the home invasion from a call from the East Coast. Police arrived at the home six minutes later and found Pop Smoke with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. On February 21, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner revealed that the cause of Pop Smoke's death was a gunshot wound to the torso.

Pop Smoke was interred at Green-Wood Cemetery in Brooklyn. On July 10, five men were arrested in connection with his murder. Four were charged with his murder: Corey Walker, 19, Keandre Rodgers, 18, and two teenagers, aged 17 and 15. Since the crime was committed during a robbery, the adults are eligible for the death penalty. A fifth person, 21-year-old Jaquan Murphy was charged with attempted murder.

Lawrence Franks Jr.

 (September 12, 1987 – June 25, 2020), better known by his stage name Huey, was an American rapper from St. LouisMissouri. Originally signed to Jive Records, Franks was best known for his 2006 debut single, "Pop, Lock & Drop It".

Music beginnings

At age 15, Huey began creating hip hop beats. His older brother referred Franks to producer Angela Richardson, who was creating a rap group. Franks began performing as Huey, and his songs "Oh" and "Pop, Lock & Drop It" became local favorites among DJs and promoters. Huey was featured on a series of mixtapes, one of which, Unsigned Hype, sold out of its run of 8,000 copies and was noticed by producer TJ Chapman, who introduced the rapper to Vice President of A&R at Jive Records, Mickey "MeMpHiTz" Wright, in 2006.

2006–2007: Notebook Paper

Huey's debut album for the label, Notebook Paper, was released in mid-2007, described by AllMusic as sounding like a mixture of NellyChingy, and Ludacris. The album reached number 26 on the Billboard 200 chart and number 10 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart. "Pop, Lock & Drop It", its lead single, peaked at number 6 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his biggest hit to date. Nelly's refusal to work with Huey on his debut album prompted two diss tracks "Down, Down, Baby" featuring Tha Camp Boyz and "Back at Cha'". Notebook Paper's next single was "When I Hustle" featuring singer Lloyd.

2010: Redemption

Huey's second album, Redemption, was released on September 14, 2010 after many delays. The first official single from the album was "Smile and Wave", which features Dorrough and was released on June 15, 2010. In "Smile and Wave", Huey criticizes his critics.

2013–2020: Project H

In 2013 Huey announced that he had officially signed with Waka Flocka Flame's label Brick Squad Monopoly and was working on his third album. On May 14, 2014 Huey released his mixtape entitled Project H. However, not much materialized from his signing to Brick Squad and Huey had been relatively quiet on the music scene in recent years. According to music executive William "Quayshaun" Carter, who worked with Huey in the 2010s, prior to his death, Huey had just started a business in upscale clothing, "and it was working out, and he was happy".


Death

Around 11 PM on June 25, 2020, Huey and an unidentified 21-year old male were both shot in front of Huey's home in Kinloch, Missouri. Huey was taken to a hospital where he died shortly after arriving. The other victim survived according to the Ferguson Police. Huey survived by his 13-year old daughter.

(August 9, 1994 – November 6, 2020), known professionally as King Von, was an American rapper and songwriter from ChicagoIllinois. He was signed to Lil Durk's record label, Only the Family and Empire Distribution.

After fellow rapper Lil Durk signed King Von to his Only the Family label, Von released his single "Crazy Story" on December 6, 2018, and it became his breakout single.

On Valentine's Day 2019, Von's then-girlfriend, rapper Asian Doll, released a music video for her track about the artist, "Grandson," in which Von appeared. 

In May 2019, "Crazy Story 2.0" featuring Lil Durk was released, and a subsequent music video was later released on May 20 of that month and peaked at number four on the Bubbling Under Hot 100 chart. On September 13, 2019, a third rendition of the single called "Crazy Story Pt. 3" was released.

On July 9, 2019, Lil Durk and King Von released their collaborative single "Like That". On September 2, 2019, Von released his single "What It's Like". The single then appeared on his album Grandson, Vol. 1. On September 19, 2019, Von released his 15 track mixtape, Grandson, Vol. 1, featuring Lil Durk on a pair of tracks. The album debuted at number 75 on the Billboard 200and number 27 on the Hip Hop/R&B albums chart. On November 16, 2019, Von released his single "2 A.M". On November 29, 2019, Von released his single "Rolling" featuring YNW Melly, accompanied with a music video.

On January 10, 2020, Detroit rapper Sada Baby's single "Pressin" was released featuring King Von. On February 21, 2020, Von released "Took Her to the O", which went on to become one his most popular songs. It was included on his mixtape, LeVon James, released on March 6, 2020, which peaked at number 63 on the Billboard 200. The album features verses from NLE ChoppaPolo G, Tee Grizzley, G Herbo, Lil Durk, and YNW Melly, among others.

On April 29, 2020, King Von released his single "Grandson for President", which did well in popularity. He followed that up with a music video release for "Broke Opps", a song off LeVon James. He then released another single, titled "Why He Told" on July 27, 2020, and followed that up with another popular single, "All These N***as", which garnered over 21 million views on YouTube. He then released another single, titled "How It Go", on August 26, 2020.

On October 9, 2020, King Von released "I Am What I Am", featuring New York rapper Fivio Foreign. This release was in anticipation of his debut studio album Welcome to O'Block, released on October 30, 2020. The 16-track album features production Chopsquad DJ, Tay KeithWheezy and Hitmaka, among others. The album includes the Polo G collaboration "The Code", which was released with a music video. Von explained the key difference between his Levon James mixtape and Welcome to O'Block: "If you're doing something and keep doing it, you're gonna get better results. Everything better. It is the one for real, I've been working hard. Complex said the album sees Von "reflecting with an acute lyrical clarity on his rise and how newfound fame could impact his own life and the lives of his loved ones", while Revolt noted of the drill album: "Often rapping about Chicago and his well-respected neighborhood, this album most certainly paints the vivid picture of his cinematic lyrics while portraying his stand-out cadences through each record".


Death

On November 6, 2020, King Von was involved in an altercation in a downtown Atlanta nightclub that took place around 3:20 a.m. between two groups of men, one of them associated with rapper Quando Rondo. The dispute quickly resulted in a shootout, which two police officers attempted to break up with additional gunfire. Bennett was subsequently transported to a hospital in critical condition and died later that day. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation initially reported that three people were killed, but an Atlanta police spokesman said that only two of them died. Four people were wounded; one of them was placed in police custody for the murder of King Von. The suspect was identified as Timothy Leeks, aged 22.

Melvin Noble

The North Dallas-bred rapper became a buzzworthy new artist in 2014 with his debut mixtape, Shottaz. The project spawned the viral hit “Hold Ur Tongue” and a noteworthy sequel in Shottaz Reloaded. Mo3 rose to prominence with his magnetic persona, signature melodic flow and life-imitating-art street stories on certified hits “Errybody,” “Keep It G,” “True Story” and “I’m the Truth.” Lyrically, Mo3 was a rugged wordsmith and a complex artist whose fans relished his rebellious authenticity.

By 2016, Mo3’s popularity magnified through the intrigue born of his controversial past, consistent run-ins with Dallas police and reports of violent altercations. In 2019, the rapper said he had survived an incident in which he'd been shot in the head while shooting a music video. His brutally honest tales of street life and ongoing conflict with other Dallas-Fort Worth artists were frequently documented in his songs, generating millions of streams.

Fans immediately took to social media in remembrance of the late artist, posting videos and photos of the Osama creator. Dallas native KingLuciano47 called him “the hardest out of Dallas.”

Death

The Dallas hip-hop community was rocked Wednesday afternoon as news flooded social media that recording artist Mo3 was reportedly shot and killed near the intersection of RL Thornton Freeway (Interstate 35) and Marsalis Avenue in Oak Cliff. According to law enforcement, the 28-year-old artist was shot shortly before noon and taken to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The Shade Room, a popular entertainment blog, broke the story on Instagram minutes after the shooting with a video of the “Everybody (Remix)” hitmaker receiving cardiopulmonary resuscitation as he lay on the freeway curbside.

TMZ reported that Mo3 and the gunman were traveling separately and northbound on the highway when the gunman approached Mo3’s vehicle. Mo3 reportedly fled his vehicle, and the gunman gave chase, firing multiple shots that hit Mo3 in the back of the head. The news outlet wrote that the gunman also shot a bystander inside his or her vehicle, who was taken to the hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
