Iggy Azalea, pop star disguised as a female rapper. In an attempt to mirror Lil Wayne's success with Nicki Minaj, T.I. felt his street credibility will allow him to fast forward the process of success by using a white woman.
The Hip Hop industry by no doubt has it flaws, but one thing has been forever prevalent in this industry and that is opinions. Wise man once said "opinions are like assholes, everyone has one". In hiphop, something Iggy Azalea has yet to learn or overcome, you are not simply judged on your lyrics and flow. For this I give her a Charlamagne Da God Hee-Haw Hee-Haw.
Nicki Minaj, prior to any album release party, any award, any barbz, ass shots, or being the apple of every man's eye, she was a rapper from South Side, Queens. Off the back, you associated South Side with struggle and knowing you had to have a backbone to just even walk down Guy R. Brewer let alone live. Secondly, she was co-signed by what hiphop fans refer to as a "real nigga" in Big Fendi. I prefer to say a gentleman who earned respect through alleged street dealings, but affirmed music business. Getting a cosign from that man is like convincing 50 Cent "Power" can't hold a flame to Empire as long as Taraji Henson Cookies are a weekly promise. Lastly, Nicki Minaj supports upcoming talent. Regardless of the background business dealings, she has songs with unheralded talent even propelling Rae Sremmurd to Billboard hitmakers.
Iggy, what the hell have you done? Your video is a spin-off the concept of little known Stephanie J of Jamaica "Tight Up Skirt". The lyrics arent saying nothing, and you failed to do the most critical thing every hiphop artist must do, almost like entering the buildings on Rikers Island, STATE YOUR MUTHAFUCKIN NAME. Im not saying the consistent spelling of it, but the meaning of your character. T.I. was the rubberband man. We believed him. His hometown supported this fact. Nicki is a bad bitch, the hood believed her by showing up to her video shoots, poppin wheelies on Foch, Lil Kim certified by Brooklyn, but you are about what?
Without Wikipedia, can anyone state where she is from in Australia? She wondered why Eminem got respect. Eminem had people in New York screaming 213 and then dissed those who repped it and sold 10 million albums in the process. He rapped about his dislikes of homosexuality, vicodin, his moms, his girlfriend, his love of his daughter, and we loved him. We loved him because he rapped like a kid without shit, whereas your first song talks about how fancy you are. Bitch, did you even recoup yet?
I wrote this partly as a pure dislike of her bland poppy music which causes more talented female artist like this one from Brooklyn, she a AG type, rapping in front of Boys and Girls HS. I mean she was nice and hopefully I can find her again. She prevents females like ItsYaGirlNicolette because now the industry is rushing to get their own white queen of hip hop instead of the Ebony Goddess that should forever hold the throne. Iggy, go to a real hip hop station, I am.not talking Hot97, I mean like DaMatrixStudios or K100 or 982 The Beat where you can be grilled with no filter.
Some of this is fact, some is opinions, all are my own. What are your thoughts? Email at the top of page.
Hot artist like in the videos are ignored due to a struggle to keep up with fabricated industry demands.
Sitting, in probably one of the warmest placest in New York City when not inside your home, a truck with heat turned to the max, in an effort to compete with 3 degree weather and Mother Nature button on chill, a matured, well-rounded man gazes through the windshield with the face of intense evaluation. He turns his head, with a raise of one brow, says "You know why I need this music to pop off, to provide the opportunity for everybody with talent to have a platform to share that talent". Spoken like a true person of selfless-service, the "Can't Call It" rapper, PlayBoySwag, has been calling it alot lately with his right on sound, charisma, and musical melodies he chooses to use in his songs.
Hailing from Harlem, NY, with long stints in Jacksonville, Florida during his teenage years, PlayBoySwag has a mix of New York's grit and Florida's Southern Hospitality. A proven songwriter, he has penned for the likes of Yung Berg, French Montana, Sheist Bubz, and more to name a few. His sound has been accepted by the public as something of hip hop soul. As we decide on a restaurant to sit and talk, he reflects on a Cadillac he drove in Florida. He recalls it was in that Cadillac he fell in love with melodies because of a local song that would play on the radio. However, it was New York which gave him the life experience of how to deal with such a cold world.
Born a crackbaby, PlayBoySwag was expected to die by doctors due to his lack of weight and small heartbeat. His grandmother, refusing to lose an innocent child, took the boy home; today he stands at 6'2 240 pounds lifting 400-500 pounds at ease. His workout is that of a street brawler, consisting of dips and pull-ups in the local park. He is educated, attending a college on a Basketball scholarship ; he left to pursue music full-time. PlayBoySwag states he "never wanted to regret" not pursuing his dream.
These days PlayBoySwag is making the rounds with his first nationally distributed single "Can't Call It" produced by multi-platinum producer Jahlil Beats and mastered by Grammy winning Chris Gehringer. The record has charted on the MediaBase charts and as of this writing became a top 15 record on WFXE in North Carolina in addition to being added to rotation at multiple other stations in the SouthEastern region of the United States. The record has over 10000 digital spins on various platforms to include Live365, iHeartradio, and Spotify. Internationally he has been played on BBC radio, NJR radio, and Canal FM in Paris. He has been playlisted on over 50 digital stations with more added each day. DJ Envy hosted and mixed the record at PlayBoySwag record release party in NYC which he had presented by one of NYC's premiere promoter in Adante Ace.
The BMI, independent as of this writing, songwriter/performer, and even if you #CantCallIt, you can absolutely feel something big is about to occur. Jonny Shipes of Cinematic Music Group says " this kid is a Superstar, I knew that years ago" . Ladies and Gentlemen: PlayBoySwag.

You know why I need this music to pop off, to provide the opportunity for everybody with talent to have a platform to share that talent
During a conversation with our good friend, who started off at
Jill Scott label, Hidden Beach, and worked at
the Recording Artist
Guild, Clifton Harris
told me he is working with a new artist who is definitely doing his due
diligence to make the game recognize R&B again not since respected
during the times Usher, R. Kelly, and
Sisqo were at the top of the game. Granted, lately you see the
industry put out some awesome pieces like Miguel,
Mario, and of course Chris Brown but, rarely
does the artistry behind R&B get the credit it deserves, amongst
Everybody, meet Donny
Born in Cleveland, a place known to
produce high quality talent like Lebron James, Donny Rajuan grew up watching his
mother sing. "Like mother, like son" in this regard, Donny began singing in the
choir up until high school. Influenced by the aforementioned Usher, Cee
Lo, and Donny Hathaway, Mr. Rajaun credit to success goes toward his God-given
gift. Splashing onto the radio in Alabama with his single "Full Throttle",
he followed it up with "Young, Fly and Getting It". It is this song which
connected him and his manager Clifton Harris in Hollywood. Now, united as a
tandem they released "Fighting Over Me", now
available on iTunes.
Over Me" starts out as most hits do, a sexy voice ready to woo every female that
turns that radio on. The first thing you take is you are able to identify him as
a male singer which has become rare lately. A writer of his own songs, the
melody reminds you of something Sisqo would most like lay down. True to R&B,
he is singing about issues within relationships we all encounter. Singing
from the point of view of the everyday man, constantly at odds with his woman
friends and their opinions. We all, those of us who have been in a
relationship, had to encounter these issues with our counter-part. The
hook "Im sick of talking/trying to defend myself/You aint hearing what I
say/but you listen to someone else/And you always talking reckless/trying
to get someone hurt/you don't think about your actions/but not about what they
worth", can make for a great Facebook that would warrant almost a million
likes, if guys girlfriends weren't watching their page.
This records gets the GO from Themicbooth.com,
due to the production, arrangement, and composition of the record. I would
like to have heard a smoother fade out but, overall the body of work is truly
great. Already picked up by radio, and garnering over 140k hits on
YouTube, this needs to be added to whatever musical device you use. I
suggest you play it after your next disagreement with you significant other and
leave the room. Chances are, you will come back to a bed of roses, some
champagne, and probably a pregnancy test in the morning. Donny Rajaun, great job, great piece of
work and the readers of this get to enjoy it below. make sure you get it
Sorry, pardon our slang. She wasn't actually killed, her song was though. We are unsure of when the song actually posted to social media, but a young phillipino girl must have had a little fairy dust on that comb the way she filled the room with her beautiful cover of Beyoncé's 2003 hit "Dangerously IN Love". If you are currently over the age of 27 you should know the song. Lately social media has been showcasing some diamond in the rough talent and hopefully they get into the right hands and not the hands of the industry sharks who don't know how to manage a million dollar budget with the artist they do have. Except for RCA, RCA seems to know what to do with every artist. I mean, check their roster. But back to the girl, she is pretty awesome. Now I will encourage you listen to the original and you be the judge of how well she compared. In the meantime, enjoy.
Perhaps you heard of her. Hannah Montana, Miley Cyrus, "Little Ratchet Twerking Girl". Well, if you haven't, chances are you are not watching televison often, never been on google, or have no interest in entertaining yourself outside of drinking beers while shooting chickens from the back of a pick up truck.
The greatest tongue-lasher since Michael Jordan, Miley Cyrus has figured out a way to blend two-cultures together. The Louisiana culture of dance, originally called bounce, with the happy go lucky culture of out of step dancing white girls everywhere. Everyone knows, cool, out-of-step dancing white girls means plenty of booze, plenty of fun, and plenty of a good time. Miley Cyrus has embraced the culture while a certain carribbean bad ass Rihanna looks on in disgust. Reality is, like Jimmy Kimmel parody of Kanye West not too long aqgo, its exactly what it looks like. Black females with fat booties, thick thighs, and seductive back arches that decide to twerk, well this is how America sees you at the end of the day.
Miley Cyrus is doing an awesome job entertaining out there, being one of the few white people that will actually embrace the culture and you know what, its not so bad that she figured out how to capitalize on it while she does. 3 Cheers for my "Little Ratchet Twerking Girl" and give the complaining ass girls out there, who are doing the same thing just not getting paid for it the biggest BOOOOO. Just face the fact you either can be Miley Cyrus or simply a THOT. Your choice.
In an unfortunate incident this child has gone missing. We contacted the number to ensure it was for real and it was confirmed by the family member at that phone number. We sure do hope that he is found.
"I BEEN GETTING $$$$ WHERE THE F*&^ YOU BEEN"
How many times have you been asked the question "Where you been at" or "Damn, haven't seen you on Instagram in 3 days", and you just what top respond with the truth....
"I BEEN GETTIN MONEY, WHERE THE F*** YOU BEEN?'.
Def Jam recording artist, 2 CHAINZ, delivers another anthem, with the Chicago native Cap 1 also known as Richie Ro'Zay, that is sure to be another hashtag favorite chorus.
Cap 1, having his on slot on National Tours headlining the likes of 2 Chainz, Drake, Nicki Minaj and more to name a few, delivers a few popular street quotes such as "Killas on the right and the left of me n****, my destiny n*****, to get all this money, too bad I cant tell you the recipe n****", explaining advising would-be haters to remember his success affords him not to no longer have to reach for anything. This shows evidence of a strong internal team CAP 1 employs. His choice of flow, forces the engineer to get fancy with the track, as his flow commands instant respect to stop and listen. His verse appears to ride the baseline like a Porsche Panamera in the rain, effortless.
2 CHAINZ delivers another quality, exciting, and innovative style of rap. When you listen to 2 CHAINZ, its like he is the mind of every social media user, who has been asked that age old question, "Where you been at". That question has become more annoying since social media has made things that happen yesterday old news.
The record, produced by Mike Will Made It, of Ear Drummers Entertainment, responsible for "Mercy", "No Lie", "BodyPart" and more, taps in what he knows is hit-making, his ever classic piano key. Always giving the artist time to shine on his records, this track does well to compliment 2 CHAINZ and CAP 1. He sets the mood to express that attitude people have when they are asked the inevitable question when they don't Instagram, Facebook, or Tweet in a few days.
People nowadays are nosey, and apparently going to work, working overtime, working two, three, four different jobs, is not being "turnt up" enough. So next time someone ask where you been at, or implies you are a lazy do nothing, reply with...
"I BEEN GETTING MONEY WHERE THE FUCK YOU BEEN!!!"
MR. CHEEKS GRACES
A CHANGE IN THE HIP HOP
Hip Hop has evolved over the years, to the point that new genres
have developed to best qualify the demographic one markets to. Ok, enough with
the business mumbo jumbo, this record is hot. Maybe it is because I am
approaching 30 (I aint worried bout nothing), but there comes a time when you
don't want to chase the fast girls of Club Speed, Webster Hall, or
Nagasaki's. There comes a time when you are tired of impressing the
overrated ladies that are in Greenhouse, Toshi, Fashion Forty, and BB Kings on a
weekly basis. There will be a time where you don't want to spend half your
check at Rivieras, Sou Rendevous, or Perfections, ok maybe we going to
There will be a time when you want
to relax, have a BBQ and in the words of Nas "without the cops harassing".
What will happen to your taste of music? Will you stop listening to your
favorite artist simply because you feel its not mature enough? Well, for
consumers, the answer is yes, which is why this record is such an outstanding
body of work. Mr. Cheeks understands his fan base has gotten older,
working decent 9-5's, have a family, and he knows not to let that true fan get
Fused with a blend
of blues, jazz, and little bit of Motown soul, "Atmosphere", led by "NoImage",
gives off that vibe that is sure to be as big of a wedding song as "Get Up" was
for every South Side brother that has gotten married, or had to attend a baby
shower for the past 16 years.(Oh you didn't we know history, see "Get Up" video
below). Mr. Cheeks has no problem maintaining that platinum flow all his fans
adore him for. He said its not a "rap attitude" but Mr. Cheeks surely displays
his annoyance with people thinking he fell off, feels he is broke, not relevant,
addressing it in his first couple of bars with "we the future, salute me I
salute yah" and "everybody wanna know where you at where you be where you go".
Surely Mr. Cheeks, as evident to the song, is
alive and well and enjoying life. No Image is definitely grooving, and the
video, shot by Zodiac Fishgrease and Saint, legendary directors themselves,
bring out the life of the song. Showing how the people arrived in the
club, what was going on prior to the song, scene changes, all the things that
are missing in todays under developed talent. You can jump if you want to
be mad if you want to hate if you want to or love it if you want to but this is
certainly a video worth sharing with the world, especially if you love
"Aint no rapper as tough as me/That's why they don't fuck with me/They can label this a diss when the song drop/Cause I'm better than your favorite rapper by a long shot"
Cassidy has been on tour in Dubai and Australia and Kendrick Lamar might just wish Cassidy was asked to go somewhere with censored internet like North Korea and maybe Cassidy would not had said nothing. First, let's take this time to thank the Lords Of Hip Hop for building this competition what it is today. Guys like Kool Moe Dee, Special K, Big Daddy Kane, LL Cool J, Krs-One, Slick Rick, Nas, Biggie, Jay Z, Mase, Jay Z, Nas, 50 Cent, Cassidy, The Game, Nas, Jay Z, Nas, Jay Z, Nas, Jay Z, N--- well you get what we are trying to say. Those cats kept real hip hop relevant in the mainstream as long as possible until the executives got a firm grip and started giving million dollar deals and shows to myspace rappers. I will refrain from naming them all but Souljah Boy tops the list. If it wasn't for them Hip Hop would've died in the late 90's or right after 50 cent got rich. Kendrick Lamar, we thank you. We thank you for leaving out the real lyricist of hip hop. we thank you for indirectly disrespecting those who have done some damage in this game. Nas said "don't ever disrespect me blatant or indirectly" and those who grew to hear that verse took heed.
Ever seen a movie where everybody beefing and don't know why. Well, they are usually comedies or about drug dealers. Think about "Get Him To The GreeK" or one of the "Fast and Furious" or something by Quentin Taratino. Yea, and then there is that cool character that shows up and can just body everyone, take what he came for, and then goes like he came without even an exit interview? Well that's Barry Adrian Reese just did. Now, we heard a whole lot of versions, we heard Lupe right before his. Even cued up the title for Lupe, and then motherfucking Cassidy verse hits and well all of a sudden talking about how Lupe spoke German wasn't interesting. Cassidy didn't just attack Kendrick, he searched for him, developed a report, and hit his house at Zero Dark Thirty. We see people saying not to waste bars on freestyle. STUPID, that is what hip hop is built on. Prove you can rap no beat, on spot, about something relevant, make sense, and have a tight flow, all without being a pussy. "I'm not gonna let you get disrespectful Im gonna address you", "I'm just trying to figure out who Im gonna slaughter next", "I got hyped when I heard that Kendrick Lamar raps/I'm in the booth thinking construction boots and a hard hat", "I'm not the King of New York/But the King of New York know I'm hot", "If you a fan of hiphop you gotta support it", are just a few of his lines from the deadly assassination of Kendrick Lamar. Think of Lebron James dunking on Jason Terry and you will understand the capacity of what just happened. You know how everyone was loving how hard of a time JT gave the KING until that moment.
CASSIDY, if this all it took to get you back to destroying niggaz I would've paid someone to write a diss just to diss me just so I can be impressed with hip hop again. I mean Mr. Lamar is not out yet people. We must give him time to respond. Think of this as 'Lyricist Lounge" gone digital and there is nothing a sponsor can motherfucking do about it. So, perhaps B.A.R.S. is back or maybe, just maybe, it might be Split Personality, either way his bars has never fell off.
If there is news out there believe the scoop will be here.
