HIP HOP RAP UP

12 10 2008

Slick Rick was honored recently at the VH1 awards with this performance by rappers such as Busta Rhymes, Pharrell, Eve, etc but the best part in my [totally unbiased ;)] opinion was Ghostface performing La Di Da Di whilst Biz Markie beatboxed. Watch it below:

New kayne anyone? It’s either gunna be a really good album or really wack. My hopes aren’t particularly high.

New Kayne West: Heartless snippet

Below is an interview with Notorious BIG’s Mom on the set of the Notorious movie. This movie is gunna be legit for real, all the family is involved. Biggies son is in the video also.

Finally here is some info on Travis Barkers condition:

US Weekly magazine talks to Travis Barker after his tragic plane crash with DJ AM and others who died.

“I am doing the best I possibly can be. I’m so anxious to get out of here. I’ve just been in surgery after surgery. I have third degree burns basically from my feet up to my waist and both hands. One of my hands was second degree burns and one third degree burns. I’m trying to have a quick recovery and play the drums again and be able to hold my kids again.”

“I hate planes. My biggest fear ever is to be involved in a plane crash. I sit here and I read books and watch TV. I think if this surgery went well, I’ll be here at most two weeks.”

Apparently DJ AM is now home also.

For anyone who is curious about my blog and where my taste lies here is my list of the best rappers in the game right now/ever according to my opinion.

1) Notorious BIG: Flow, Swagger etc. Every single track Mr Smalls appeared on was hot, I haven’t heard a single verse from him that isn’t fire.

2) Wu Tang: The best rap group ever, every single member is extremely talented. Personal favorites at the moment being GZA, RZA, Ghost and Rae.

3) U.G.K: Underrated as fuck and they represent everything that is good from the south. Swagger, Longevity these guys had it.

4) Jay Z: Not really a total favorite or anything as far as music goes but as far as staying relevant and running the game for over a decade jigga definitely deserves a spot. Don’t forget without Jigga you don’t have Kayne either.

5) Busta: Busta has made some classics in his time and he’s one of the most likable rappers at the moment.





Nate dogg suffers second stroke

16 09 2008

It is a sad day indeed, only a month or so after his domestic violence conviction Nate Dogg has suffered his second stroke. Nate is a legend, he was singing the hook on every popular song before T-pain was even around, only difference being he actually sings. Snoop must be sad his best friend is in such a bad condition, wish him a steady recovery so he can get back to singing classic hooks such as this one…
