50 Cent, Young Buck & Kid Kid (G-Unit) – Ahhh Shit (Official Music Video)

“Put your hands up, you still getting shot,” 50 Cent raps on G-Unit’s new song, “Ahhh Shit.”

The crew’s new song, released late Monday, Aug. 25, features Young Buck, 50 and Kidd Kidd rapping, candidly, about racism and police brutality.

 

After flashing a Rated R warning, the video opens with footage of Eric Garner, a Staten Island black man who died of a heart attack while being put in a chokehold by the NYPD.

The video continues to show footage of police beatings and injustice including Garner and Michael Brown, an 18-year old unarmed black man who was shot by Ferguson, Miss. police.

“Ahh Shit” is featured on the G-Unit’s six-song album, The Beauty of Independence, which dropped early Monday, Aug. 25, without any notice.

Marley Brooker – Don’t Play (Remix) feat. Travi$ Scott #Ferguson Edition

Mike Brown Shooting Site

As Mike Brown is laid to rest today one stage of the Ferguson saga comes to an end. By now almost all of the world knows the story of Mike Brown’s shooting by a Ferguson Police Officer named Darren Wilson. For those who aren’t that familiar with the incident Marley Brooker weighs in with his two cents from a unique perspective.

AUR?: Whats up Marley, we know you’ve kept up with this Ferguson incident from day 1 and been vocal on your social media account would you like to weigh in on anything for those who may not follow you on twitter?

MCB: Thank you for the platform. I love this blog. I’ve said so much I’m all talked and tweeted out. I know people may be getting “tired” of this Ferguson/Mike Brown situation. But I’d like to speak up as this whole thing shifts into the next phase. Via my music. My mouth gets me in trouble (laughs).

AUR?: Is this why you chose to release something on the manner today?

MCB: Well… today the young brother was laid to rest, RIP Mike, and it’s also Monday, a day I coined #MarleyMondays,  which I often release new music on. I wrote the first verse 5 or 6 days ago when they had just raised about 200k for the Cop. Monday proved to be a fitting date.

AUR?: Word.

MCB: I’m not gonna say too much more on Ferguson, which happens to be my last name, but for those of you interested in my insight just check my twitter out (twitter.com/MarleyBrooker) and review my tweets I RT a lot of really dope things from people who were on the ground in Ferguson like Shaun King (twitter.com/ShaunKing) and Antonio French (twitter.com/AntonioFrench). I also live streamed I am Mike Brown & Vice News’ feeds (twitter.com/vicenews) .

AUR?: We follow you on twitter and you kept us very in the loop. What about the record? Don’t Play? You touched on some controversial things, care to elaborate?

MCB: Honestly I’d love to… but everything I’d tell you now I included in the 2 verses I put on Travi$ Scott’s instrumental. Shoutout to Travi$ Scott make sure y’all check for his new album, Days Before Rodeo, it’s fire. I also went ahead and annotated a significant amount of the important lyrics on Rap Genius in particular my views on Sgt. Maj. Dan Page and his highly volatile speech to the St. Louis Oath Keepers which got him “fired” from Ferguson Police, some of CNN’s questionable reporting and the chances I think Mike Brown have of getting justice. So just listen AND read! 

AUR?: Will do! In this case reading may even be more beneficial. I have the Rap Genius app on my iPhone so I will check it out. Thanks for the time!

MCB: No thank you guys! The pleasure is always mine. Anytime you call, you know I’ll answer Ms. Hammond.

AUR?: Lol. Of course!

A couple weeks ago I had a chance to hang with Travi$ Scott while he was in Miami for his show at Grand Central. I was lucky enough to preview a few of the tracks of this project and have been looking forward to the album release.

#HashtagLunchBag Community Event With @YesJulz, @Fefi_DoesIt, @IeshaMariee, @WhoIsMissCash and more

Howdy! For those of you out there who don’t know @WhoIsMissCash – I am she 🙂 My name is Colby Alaina Smith Hammond (C.A.S.H.) – so everyone calls me Cash! For those who know me, know I am apart of #Relentless and for those who don’t know, I’m also apart of the #YesJulzAgency.

 

#HashtagLunchbag Day 1 7/20

 

Two weeks ago along side @Fefi_DoesIt & @YesJulz, we made over 475 lunch bags and gave them out to the homeless. We combined art, cars, and music by @AFlyGuy into an event to give back to the community. I’d like to Thank everyone who came out and helped us create/handout the lunch bags to those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Sometimes we forget that things aren’t as bad as we think they are. We have to take those moments to stop and enjoy what we have and those people in our lives that keep us going. We will be doing this event every month and it will only get bigger and better.

Below is video from the event recorded by www.The305.com and an excerpt from their article.

We were blessed to be a part of a project called Hashtag Lunchbag that took over Lou La Vie in Downtown Miami; to set up lunch bags for the less fortunate residents in Miami who are without homes. A goal was set for 300 bags to be completed and distributed, but that goal was surpassed with a total of 476 lunch bags completed and distributed.

Tons of people came out to show support with donations and with their time in putting together the lunch bags including model Iesha Marie, DJ A Fly Guy, Chris Paciello, Nick Ramirez (photographer), B Cruz (photographer) and so much more.

Press play to see how the day turned out.

50 Cent – Big Rich Town (Power Theme Song)

Power


Starz
‘s new original series Power has been thrilling.  “Big Rich Town” is  the theme song by Power executive producer Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson. The single was created specifically for the show and will serve as the main title theme. It features never-before-seen footage from the New York-based crime drama from writer Courtney Kemp Agboh, which is set in two different worlds, the glamorous New York club scene and the brutal drug trade. “For me, the musical component of Power is so important,” Jackson said. “I wanted to let the music speak to the viewers as they are watching the show and being able to create the theme song, ‘Big Rich Town’, was crucial as it sets the tone of the show.” Power centers on James “Ghost” St. Patrick (Omari Hardwick), the owner of an up-and-coming new nightclub in New York with plans to build an empire who also is a drug kingpin.

Tupac’s “All Eyez On Me” Earns Diamond Certification From RIAA

all-eyez-on-me

by ANDRES TARDIO

Tupac’s “All Eyez On Me” goes ten times platinum 18 years after its release.

Tupac’s 1996 album, All Eyez On Me, has earned diamond certification, according to the RIAA.

The album, which features “California Love (Remix),” “How Do U Want It,” “Life Goes On” and “2 Of Amerikaz Most Wanted,” among other hits, has gone 10 times platinum 18 years after its initial release.

When it was released, All Eyez On Me earned less than perfect reviews. Rolling Stone awarded the album a 3 out of 5. “Even as a garden-variety thug, 2Pac shows more skill than most,” Rolling Stone said at the time. “He deserves to have all eyes — and ears — on him.”

Entertainment Weekly gave the album a B+. “Shakur has often made more compelling courtroom appearances (and movies) than records, but All Eyez on Me changes that dramatically,” EW said at the time. “Shakur belongs on Death Row — the rap hit-factory label, that is, which is also home to Dr. Dre and Snoop Doggy Dogg. With a slew of producers, including Dre and nearly a dozen disciples of his g-funk sound, the album swings nonstop for over two rambunctious hours.”

In 2006, HipHopDX called All Eyez On Me Tupac’s definitive album.

“More than any of his other efforts, ‘Pac contradicted himself like crazy here,” HipHopDX said at the time. “But it was those contradictions within himself that made him the icon that he is today. Hip Hop has always been about the good, the bad and the ugly and Pac showed us the full the spectrum here. To this day is remains his definitive work.”

Nicki Minaj – Anaconda (Leaks Early – Listen Here CDQ)

Download Link – http://www.viewhiphop.com/77768/new-music-nicki-minaj-anaconda/

Here goes the CDQ version of Nicki Minaj’s highly anticipated single “Anaconda”.

Well here it is! After hearing a low-quality leak earlier this morning, we now have the CDQ version of Nicki Minaj‘s highly anticipated single “Anaconda”.

The track focuses around Sir Mix-A-Lot’s 1992 classic “Baby Got Back”, and uses the lines “My anaconda don’t want none unless you got buns”, &  the voice clip “oh my god, look at her butt” for the hook. Given the popularity of the original version, Nicki’s raunchy new version may be the next big thing to hit the industry.

Look for this twerking anthem to appear on the her upcoming third studio album, The Pink Print, which will be arriving later this year.

Take a listen to Da Internz & Polow Da Don-produced cut below, and look for the single to hit iTunes on Monday, August 4th.

Quotable Lyrics:

This dude named Michael used to ride motorcycles
Dick bigger than a tower, I ain’t talking about Eiffels
Real country ass nigga, let me play with his rifle
Pussy put his ass to sleep, now he calling me NyQuil
Now that bang, bang, bang
I let him hit it cause he slang cocaine
He toss my salad like his name Romaine
And when we done, I make him buy me Balmain
