[NEW ALBUMS COMING SOON] Tupac releases New Music

Image
TUPAC WILL BE RELEASING TWO ALBUMS So the belief that Tupac is still alive will be reignited when the slain rappers estate released never before heard music recorded by the rapper before his untimely death. With the release of his 7 posthumous albums, the world was in a frenzy whether he was still alive or dead.  Before Afeni Shakur passed, she filed a lawsuit against Entertainment One, the company responsible for the acquisition of Death Row, claiming that the estate was owed over one million dollars.  According to The Blast, documents show the opposing sides agreeing to settle the suit. But, lo and behold, along with a cash settlement, Tupacs Estate won back rights to master recordings to unreleased music. It is rumored to be enough music to cover two albums and, though they haven't set a release date they are expected to drop soon.

White Rappers topping First Week Sales

Top White Rappers, Putting Up The Numbers. Brand Nubian Rapper Lord Jamar, made the bold claim that white rappers are guests in Hip Hop. And seeing it thru the eyes of the revolutionary, I can see his point of view, (Hip Hop was a major tool aimed to reinvent America). But, there's a crowd of people who see hip hop thru the eyes of a consumer and disagrees with the New York Rapper. Some site the spirit of hip hop dwells within us all, while others speak upon the financial success that each one has attained.  So that prompted me to investigate this wild financial success that was attained by these white rappers, and save for Eminem, was shocked at what I found. Most of these artists have do well including traditional media such as CDs. Now that says one thing to me. I don't know to many Black people that buy CD's, so it is safe to say that white people support one another. And, if you think they are trying to dominate hip hop, that should scare you.πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜±πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

Celebrity Marriage Over

Image
Cardi B and Offset  Celebrity Marriage in the Dumps Say it ain't so... Cardi B and Offset didn't even make it a year in matrimony. The Stripper turned Superstar, went to instagram in the twilight hours, to explain that even though they have alot of love for each other and they are great business partners, but things haven't been working out.  But to be honest who couldn't call it. This had Publicity Stunt written all over it. They may have had true love for each other. But, somewhere down the line, Hollywood made them happen. By it being a big story last year, the two rising stars started dating and after a few weeks Offset proposed. I was happy for them. But, in the back of my mind I couldn't help but wonder, "How long will it last." Not every celebrity marriage can't end up like Jada and Will Smith, but even they admit to having an open marriage.  And it's marriages like this that make me think of the slave masters "BREEDING

Shots fired on set

Image
Kanye almost catches slugs meant for 6ix9ine.                                                                 Pitchfork reported that shots were fired on the set of a video for the controversial rapper, and no not Kanye this time but Tekashi 6ix9ine, newest song. No one was hit, but it is reported that Kanye left the set immediately. Nick Minaj wasn't scheduled to arrive later but it is clear Kanye may have a loose screw but he is not about to be catching rounds for anyone but hisself. After his altercation earlier this month with his bodyguard being shot, it seems people are not feeling the fact that he dodged prison with his Pedophile Case and received probation with a Sex Offender Registration. I just keep thinking to myself who works with, let alone put their name behind, someone with a child sex case in their history. Unfortunately this is the sad present state of of my beloved HipHop.

Tips and tricks to get free publicity. Young thug is in jail because of a failed drug test while on probation for his September 2017 arrest on drug and firearms. Jeffery Lamar Williams, AKA Young Thug, was charged with possession of marijuana with the intent to distribute, as well, as possession of XANAX, codeine, and ecstasy. He also had two firearms in his presence that, being a previous convicted felon, violates the law. In 2015, he caught a felony drug and gun charge that he beat prior to catching these newer charges.  After pissing dirty for his probation officer he was immediately taken into custody prior to a scheduled arraignment. This will without a doubt be something his publicist will use in their next marketing scheme. Clifford Harris, AKA T.I., was arrested in 2007 for trying to buy illegal firearms from undercover federal agents. This was in response to the killing of his friend, bullets he say was meant for him. So as this wasn't a publicity stunt
