24-Track Collector's Edition Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Jamaican Rock Steady Genre

24-Track Collector's Edition Celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the
Jamaican Rock Steady Genre
2016 marks the 50th anniversary for Jamaica's celebrated musical genre rock steady. Rock steady, which was a successor of ska and precursor to reggae, used elements of rhythm and blues (R&B), jazz, ska as well as African and Latin American drumming. With its irresistible slow tempo beat and more bass-heavy, stripped-down sound, it was a distinct contrast from the more upbeat, big band ska era. Although it lasted only a couple of years (1966-68), rock steady is one of Jamaican music's most influential genres and produced immortal rhythms that are still sampled and used today.   17 North Parade,  VP Records' vintage imprint, commemorates the genre this year with  First Class Rock Steady.  The 12" double vinyl edition is available  this Fri. (Sept 30)  and   follows its 40-track CD and digital companion box set  (released on  July 1 ) as well as the 7" limited edition vinyl piece exclusive for Record Store Day 2016.   This new collection of First Class Rock...

Game goes after Meek Mills (Track Included)

Game goes after Meek Mills (Track Included)
Credit TMZ.com   The Game  is going after  Meek Mill  with some serious threats in a new diss track ... telling Meek to watch his back, letting him know he's gonna have sex with  Nicki Minaj . Game dropped " 92 Bars " Friday morning ... which possibly explains why he started going HAM on Meek Thursday night in a Miami nightclub, calling him out as a snitch. Check out the song -- the reference to his "pool stick" and Nicki is an instant classic ... as diss tracks go, anyway. Game also reveals one of the 3 Kardashians he says he's banged. It's a little disappointing. As we first reported, Game's entourage was  the target of a drive-by  shooting outside the Fontainebleau Hotel ... after the nightclub gig. There's no evidence whatsoever connecting Meek to the shooting. For what it's worth ...  Game's old nemesis ,  Stiches , is...

  Shout out to Netflix for doing the obvious. Hit sci-fi series Stranger Things has been officially picked up for a second season, and it already has a new trailer.  Stranger Things is set in 1983 and is a supernatural horror series that made for some addictive binge watching.

Cloth Talk: DJ Khaled Responds To Luxury Brand Goyard’s “Total Fake” Jacket Tweets

  » by Patrice Nelson Aug 31 2016, 9:46am Share This Tweet This Email This Did DJ Khaled go against his words and play himself by rocking a custom made Goyard jacket at the MTV Video Music Awards? DJ Khaled’s appearance at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards was a big one as he hosted the pre-show ceremonies and acted as a correspondent for the main event. However, the sharply dressed DJ’s wardrobe was called into question. Khaled was spotted what looked to be a silk jacket made by luxury brand Goyard which is currently a favorite among rich rappers. In case you and your bank account are unfamiliar, it’s the company that makes the stuff with the “Y” all over it. Anyways. Khaled was spotted at the VMAs and at afterparties wearing this.

Listen To Iman Shumpert Brag About His Fiancèe Teyana Taylor On “Glory” [STREAM]

  Cleveland Cavalier’s shooting guard Iman Shumpert is shooting while he’s hot. The hooper/rapper just dropped a new track called “Glory” after his brief cameo in Kanye West’s “Fade” video. In basketball, this is what would be called a “heat check.” As the world is still salivating at the sight of his future wife and the mother of his child, Teyana Taylor , Shumpert is hoping to capitalize by dropping some new music. The track is a sample of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ 2009 hit “Heads Will Roll.” Shump opens the song rapping: “Ya’ll gonna pay for my struggle/ People love a true story/But people want you to suffer/ Cuz they ain’t never been in your glory/ They ain’t never had no money/ They can’t understand no shoppin'” He also raps his sick shoe game saying that his kicks “are harder to get than my b*tch.” Oh my.
