50 Cent Says Jay Z Can’t Compare To Eminem, “Hip Hop Is Black Music”

50 Cent says that Eminem is one of his best friends and that the Detroit rapper’s talent makes some people uncomfortable. 

“Hip Hop is Black music, without question, and, unfortunately for some people, it’s tough to accept that you have a White artist that does it better than Black artists,” 50 Cent says during an interview with Music Choice. "It is what it is. You can get like whoever you think is the best Black artist and stand them face-to-face in a room with Em and he will eat that [guy] alive. Right now if you had ‘em prepare themselves, whatever way they would have to prepare themselves to come battle…I bet what I have, everything” that Eminem would win.

In Depth KILLER MIKE interview w/ HIPHOPDX

Exclusive: Killer Mike holds court with three of HipHopDX’s editors to give his take on ghostwriting, women twerking to “Reagan” and more.

“People have seen so much of me at this point, they know it’s not bullshit. They know it’s just not a song ‘cause Trayvon Martin died or just ‘cause Oscar [Grant] died. They see that this is his lifestyle. This is who he is as a human being. As a human being, Michael Render gives a damn about humans.”

“To Pimp A Butterfly is    ambitious in its attempt to inspire a generation to change the world for the better and poignant enough to actually do so.”

This post has been saved under drafts for close to a month, because until today, I completely forgot about it. I wrote this a week or so after, To Pimp a Butterfly came out, when all of the much-deserved hype was surrounding it. When I randomly pulled it up today, I was close to deleting it because it seemed irrelevant, since the albums been out for a while now. Then I turned on the news and saw the Baltimore riots, and all of the other horrific bullshit around the world that goes on every day, week, and month. This revolutionary album couldn’t have come at a better time, which is a time of turmoil for a generation that needs some inspiration, spark, courage, pride, heart, and leadership to take back our country. The rest of the writing starts off with what I originally wrote a month ago.

“To Pimp A Butterfly is ambitious in its attempt to inspire a generation to change the world for the better and poignant enough to actually do so.”
by Justin Hunte - Music Critic for HIPHOPdx

This will probably be my last post referring to Kendick Lamar’s album, To Pimp a Butterfly. It’s hard to even put this masterpiece into words, but the inspiration its filled me with, is a strong force of feelings that I must express. We’re entering the fourth month of the new year, 2015, and the world hasn’t changed much at all, actually, the world seems to be at its lowest point since I’ve been alive. Everyday, the unsettling problems of our society stare straight into my eyes. I’m tired of reading the newspaper or hearing the news in the background, about another tragic headline, before I can even have my first cup of coffee in the morning. To be completely honest, up until lately, I was numb to it. Numb, without any purpose, rather than to just exist. Well, I don’t want to feel numb anymore, and the spark Kendrick’s lit inside me is a fire that hasn’t burned for a while. Everyone who cares, can bluntly see the corruption and pain we’re drowning in today. I hope a lot of people understand how important this album is, from all the positive attention its getting, and what I’ve seen and read on here, seems like a lot of people do. This powerful album gave me hope again. A hope that keeps growing. He opened my eyes with his music to see that there’s a lot more people out there feeling the way I feel. The day when the news broke all over the web that the new album was out a week before its original release, I purchased the album and canceled any plans I had that day to listen to it. On first listen, while going through every lyric, I was blown away, and I haven’t stopped listening to it yet. Finally, there was this brave man with social power, addressing all the same issues that’s been constantly on my mind. Look at the police, I mean the government has turned them into a military, that have been targeting the African-American race like terrorists. The government is soon going to want complete control over everyone, unless we all (every race) unify together, hand-to-hand, to make a stand that sends a strong message to them, that we won’t tolerate abuse. This generation needs a lot more inspiring voices like Kendrick Lamar’s. Inspiring voices from all walks of life. People (skin & flesh) who want change, but first, change must start within. Then, Anything is possible. Just like the Bloods and Crips in Baltimore, who’ve put their hatred for each other behind, so they can unite for a cause that’s much bigger than a gang. Soon, we’re all going to need to come together.

Final note; I’ll always be in debt to Kendrick Lamar and To Pimp a Butterfly

Soulja Boy Owes The IRS $26,000 In Back Taxes via HipHopDX

 

The “Crank Dat” rapper is in the dog house with almost $30K owed to Uncle Sam.

After claiming that he dropped $55 million on a private jet and later retracting the lie, Soulja Boy is in actuality facing financial woes. According to RadarOnline.com, the 21-year-old owes more than $26,000 in back taxes to the IRS.

The State of California reportedly filed a $26,805 tax lien against the “Crank Dat”

rapper on March 24, 2011, with the matter yet to be resolved.

Soulja Boy, who made Forbes’ Hip Hop Cash Kings list in 2010 with $7 million in earnings, recently resolved a $3,571 lien in Mississippi last week. According to documents, his financial problems extend further, as his Georgia home was foreclosed on last year.

When The Good Life released a couple of weeks ago I was like WOW, this is serious! So after I couple of weeks, basically around this time, I’m always checking mainstream hip hop sites to see what kinda reactions the album gets. When I was on http://www.hiphopdx.com my eye felt on an article entitled: Hip Hop Album Sales, and what I red in that article blew my mind away. I had never expected that Trip Lee’s album would sell over 24 000 copies in the first weeks, especially since I remembered his last album, Between Two Worlds, sold only a couple thousand times in the first weeks.

I think that based on this figures we may say that CHH is taken more serious in the ‘mainstream hip hop business.’ In light of this good news, I’m really curious to see how mainstream hip hop reacts to Lecrae’s upcoming mixtape Church Clothes and album Gravity. Could this be CHH’s permanent breakthrough? Let me know your thoughts about this!

Flaws and all, SATELLITE FLIGHT: The journey to Mother Moon stands as one of Kid Cudi’s biggest accomplishments. Rejuvenated. Recreated. Rebooted. Call it what you will. Scott Mescudi made an EP’s worth of material feel like an album, and he did it without surrendering his artistic integrity in the process. If SATELLITE FLIGHT truly is a bridge between Indicud and Man on the Moon III, fans will be in for a treat when the third installment is finally released.
