LHHATL Star KK Addresses Those Crackhead Rumors
  » by Omar Mazariego Aug 2 2017, 12:06pm Share This Tweet This Email This Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta cast member Karen King a.k.a. KK found herself rocking them police issued bracelets earlier this week for allegedly missing a few car payments for her Maserati.

Tupac’s Old California Home Up For Sale [Photos]

Tupac’s Old California Home Up For Sale [Photos]
  » by Omar Mazariego Aug 2 2017, 9:36am Share This Tweet This Email This Anyone looking to own a piece of Hip-Hop history is being given the opportunity to do so right now as Tupac Shakur’s old California estate is being put back on the market. The New York Post reports that the All Eyez On Me rapper’s Woodland Hill, CA residence has been put up for sale to the tune of $2,659,000. The house is the very one that Pac moved into in 1995 after Suge Knight posted his bail and signed him to Death Row Records. Unfortunately for Pac he never really owned the property (you know Suge did him dirty with his royalties) but the same can’t be said for Limp Bizkit’s DJ Lethal who purchased the property before selling it to it’s current owners in 2003. The six-bedroom, five-bathroom crib comes decked with a wood-mantled...

Beats with DJ R-Sin

Beats with DJ R-Sin
DJ R-Sin comes at you with a cascade of beats from Port Washington. "Take Ya Badge Off" is a beat you'd likely hear in a video game that resembled "Grand Theft Auto." The tension is there, but it also sounds like something you'd want to have playing as you took an insane drive through the city. It's a beat void of lyrics but somehow DJ R-Sin has ma...

WATCH: T.I.’s Us Or Else: Letter To The System [VIDEO]

  » by Omar Mazariego May 5 2017, 12:37pm Share This Tweet This Email This Following in the footsteps of Tupac Shakur before him , T.I. has taken to politics after seeing the effect it has on the community and is using his rap star status to bring social consciousness to his fans and the Hip-Hop culture. And with the way things are unfolding under the current Trump administration , it’s just what the game needs. Just last week BET premiered T.I.’s politically charged short-film, Us or Else: Letter To The System . The short special was basically the visual manifestation of his social-political themed EP of the same title that dropped late last year. Taking on a few roles in the short, T.I. paints a picture that details just how police brutality touches different sectors of the community before ultimately leading to a Black Lives Matter protest. And no, a can of Pepsi was...

  » by Patrice Nelson May 5 2017, 10:58am Share This Tweet This Email This Former BET head Zola Mashariki has filed a discrimination lawsuit against the company and recently ousted executive Stephen Hill. Page Six  reports that Mashariki filed a discrimination lawsuit in the state of California.
