Kendrick Lamar – Control

If you know hip hop, I mean really know hip hop > music and how to read between the lines…. If so, then you were able to listen to this freestyle by Kendrick Lamar and know this is a reverse diss.

Who’s names he did not say are the one’s he did not give homage to….

Hip Hop is NOT dead > It’s just missing so many artists not given the light too many untalented motha fck’s get…. Kendrick Lamar is good, Lupe Fiasco is great, NAS is one of the best…. CHRIS NESS is an artist who needs the light (!

Ready to see more talent in the mainstream light!


Jay-Z deal with Samsung for new album release

Jay-Z deal with Samsung for new album release

Jay-Z’s latest business deal with Android involving his upcoming album is a win for the company, the rapper and African Americans, writes Jamilah King for Colorlines. The business mogul clearly knows his audience: Young black consumers love their smartphones, and blacks are more likely than other groups to report favoring Android.

Jay-Z is teaming up with Samsung to release his new album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail”, on July 4. The new release will be free for the first one million Android users who download an app for the album. It’s a unique partnership and the first of its kind. TechHive points out that for Samsung, “It’s a chance to be associated with one of the coolest cats in pop culture and to showcase the company’s ability to compete with iTunes radio.”

Jay-Z fans should find this free download a small token of generosity. Hopefully the album shows a more matured and conscious artist.
