GARY IN. — Even though the doors open up at 7pm, it took a while for the Powerfest concert to start up in Gary Indiana. The event took place at the New Genesis Arena and from the start there was a little bit of confusion amongst the security, promoters and the customers who came to see the show. However when things settled down, it turned out to be a good showcase for the new and hot artists in the rap game. Read More

Waka Flocka vs. Pete Rock Argument Represents the Wackness of New vs. Old Hip Hop

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

Recently Pete Rock  had a verbal spat on social media with Waka Flocka. I’m not sure when or how the argument started, but I saw the post put up by Pete Rock. “I’m gonna defend my older heads and tell you your not equal,” Pete Rock said. He continued on throughout the lengthy rant by saying “Pay homage to who was before you. Problem is also y’all want us to accept music that don’t move nothing but the young, when you making music it’s to inspire everyone not just your era.” Read More

Tiffany Haddish Being the First Black Female Comedian to Host SNL, Shows The Struggle Continues For Women in Entertainment–Especially Black Women

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer

Saturday Night Live has been on the air for more than 40 seasons and it has never had a Black female comedian to host their show. Let me repeat never. This opened my eyes to the sexism that exists in the entertainment industry against women. The recent onslaught of sexual harassment/assault claims against various men in Hollywood shows that women still have to fight to show their talents and not their breasts. When you see that a lot of White women come forward and speak out against sexism, then you know it is extra hard for Black women. So the fact that Tiffany Haddish was the first to break the barrier for Black female comedians on SNL, needs to be saluted. She actually touched on the topic and shitted on Louis C.K in the process. Shout out to her and the other sisters who are doing their thang in the entertainment industry and in everyday life. Watch Tiffany monologue below.

TMZ has release video of former NBA player Lamar Odom collapsing in the club. Odom was in VIP at a club in Los Angeles and fell out on the floor. Security came over to pick him up and it seems he will be ok. The sad thing about this incident is Lamar Odom almost died last year while drinking and doing drugs in a brothel. Not only hasn’t Odom learned his lesson, he still hasn’t found anything to live for;not even himself. Watch the video of Odom below.

Recently Wu Tang Clan member Masta Killa dropped his fourth studio album called Loyalty is Royalty.  The album was released through Nature Sounds records and has 16 tracks that includes an intro and outro. It also has interlude called “Wise Words” where the RZA not only decides to supply a piano composed beat of his own, but also drops some jews for the people. Other notable producers include P.F Cuttin, illmind, Dame Grease, True Master and 9th Wonder. Along with the superstar producers on the album; he also has production from Blockade, Chainsaw and even beats that he produced.

It’s hard for me to start this off and be eloquent without reiterating what the title says, in that, I’m tired of seeing Black people protest. I do feel a need to clarify that statement a little bit. It’s just not that I’m tired of seeing Black people protest, but I’m tired of the lack of progression made from those protests. Just recently Dove was receiving backlash and  murmurs from people who thought there should be a boycott of their products because of a racist ad they put out. Read More

Album Review: Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues

By: Jarrod Horton

Staff Writer 

Legendary group Wu-Tang Clan has dropped its 7th studio album titled Wu-Tang: The Saga Continues. The album has 18 tracks but really only 11 of those are songs. There is a intro and outro, to go along with 5 skits throughout the album. The Saga Continues is executive produced by RZA, but all the beats are supplied by Mathematics. The first thing I noticed that may or may not be important is the absence of the name ‘Clan’ from the group’s name. Sometimes artists alter their names to get away from legal issues of dropping new music independently or with different record companies. I’m guessing this might the case since the album is being released through eOne music, which is a departure from their other albums that were released through Loud, Universal or Warner Brothers.
