    Rapper Bow Wow took to Twitter to defend his mentor Snoop Dogg in his public feud with President Donald Trump, but he drew in First Lady Melania Trump and in a way that was derogatory, offensive and sexist. He told the president he should shut his punk (executive) up about Dogg. He then if said the president didnt stop attacking Dogg, we would take an action that suggests turning the First Lady into a prostitute. His tweet crossed several important lines. First it implied a certain attitude among rich, powerful, arrogant and misogynist men. It is that women only exist...

    T.I. has issued a stern warning to his celebrity peers meeting with Trump: “Do not accept any invitation to have any meeting... No matter how positive you think the outcome may be.” On Monday, T.I. shared his two cents on the matter in a series of Instagram video posts explaining his theory on the Trump administration’s “strategic plan” to help normalize the president-elect. “They see how adamantly against [Trump] being president the hip-hop community and the young black people was in America,” he said. “So what did they do? They get Kanye West to come in. Well, surely, ‘if you...

    Kanye West didnt participate in the election earlier this month, but he would have voted for President-elect Donald Trump if he had. The 39-year-old rapper and songwriter told concert-goers in San Jose that he supported the business tycoon and future POTUS on Thursday. I told yall I didnt vote, right? the Fade performer asked the crowd during his performance at the SAP Center. But, if I would have voted, I would have voted on Trump. The audience responded with a combination of cheers and boos, but that didnt stop West. To black people, stop focusing on racism, he continued. Its...

    Portland Public Schools officials are rethinking a district ban on rap music on buses after allegations of racism. The district had banished hip-hop from its buses, deeming the genre "inappropriate." Teri Brady, senior director of transportation at Portland Public Schools, sent a directive to bus drivers in March forbidding "religious, rap music, or talk show programs." The memo included a list of acceptable stations, broken down into three genres: pop, country and jazz. Parent Colleen Ryan-Onken obtained a copy and it circulated in August among outraged parents, prompting the district to walk back the directive in statements released Wednesday.

    As I watched a video recently of Black Lives Matter protestors, I saw several of the mostly peaceful marchers raise their hands in the "Hands Up, Don't shoot" routine. Apparently, they haven't heard that Michael Brown never said that but since, celebrities, athletes, the mainstream media and of course, Democrats continue to spread that lie, who can blame the low infos from believing it. [snip] Certainly, the demonstrators don't even pay attention to what black journalists have reported but they aren't interested unless Beyonce, Jay-Z and other hip-hop singers tell them what to think. When MSNBC's Jonathan Capehart, wrote an...

When Mexico sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you.

    An imprisoned hip hop artist currently serving a 10-year sentence in a California state penitentiary released a track decrying the prevalence of state violence against black communities. The song, 28 Hours, by Richie Reseda, was co-released by Black Lives Matter and Los Angeles-based art collective G.R.E.E.D.Y. City last month. With lyrics that reference the deaths of Renisha McBride, Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and others, the song represents a passionate, politically charged condemnation of police violence and mass incarceration. Suicide, genocide at the same time, sings Reseda. No ones on my side so I throw up gang signs. Red and...

    Where can you find graphic depictions of kidnapping, nudity, torture, vandalism, forced drug use, drowning, and murder? Probably not even in the worst horror movie, but Rihannas new seven minute music video (WARNING: Highly Graphic Imagery) somehow manages to fit in every one of these things. Bitch Better Have My Money tells the story of a sadistic woman (Rihanna), her accountant, and the accountants blonde-model girlfriend. The end is bad Rihanna murders the accountant for not having her money. But most of the video doesnt even focus on this. Instead, it depicts Rihanna kidnapping and abusing the nameless blonde,...
