In an interview with Rap Rader, Jay-Z gives more details about his current riff with Kanye West . “We’ve gotten past bigger issues, but you brought my family into it, now it’s a problem with me.” he said in the interview. Jay-Z said in the past Kanye’s honesty has helped them get pass their disagreements, but this time Kanye crossed the line. “He knows he crossed the line. I know him. He knows. And I know he knows, ’cause we’ve never let this much space go between one of our disagreements, and we’ve had many.” Jay-Z admitted. Problems were highlighted between the two during Kanye’s last tour when he went on a rant talking about Jay Z, Beyonce and other things. Jay-Z addressed the issue on his album 4:44 on a song called ‘Kill Jay-Z.’ when he said (“But you got hurt because you did cool by ‘Ye/You gave him 20 million without blinkin’/He gave you 20 minutes on stage, fuck was he thinkin’?.”

Mike Delorean Explains Why the Prodigy Mural Kept Getting Defaced

By: Vincent Funaro

Article Reprint

Former Mobb Deep collaborator Mike Delorean revealed the reason why Prodigy’s mural kept getting defaced in Queensbridge. Delorean, who was part of the group Bars and Hooks that appeared on Prodigy’s first solo album “H.N.I.C.,” told Gully TV that the mural was defaced because the Mobb Deep rapper disrespected deceased and incarcerated Queensbridge natives in his 2011 book “My Infamous Life.”

Delorean said the children of some of these people whom he talked about in the book are responsible for pushing the mural out of Queensbridge. He claims they weren’t trying to disrespect hip-hop, but rather repaying Prodigy for going at their own dead family members.

The Prodigy mural was vandalized twice before finally being removed from its location in Queensbridge last week. It is unclear if there are any plans for relocation.
