Seems like rap artists are trying to get the streets ending 2012. I’ve heard a few things hear and there. Impressed with some but wasn’t quite impressed with others. For example, the Ludacris ft. Pusha T Tell Me What They Mad For joint. It goes hard. I ride with that. But I wish Pusha chill out with the YMCMB disses though and simply stick with being a dope MC.
Check out Ludacris ft. Pusha T ‘Tell Me What They Mad For’ below.
And there’s Philly rappers Cassidy and MMG’s Meek Mill going at it. Guess they’re trying to prove who’s the king of Philly. Either way, they need to let that mess go and stick to making money and music. The beat to Meek Mill’s joint goes hard, but he couldn’t came harder with the punches though. He’d probably do better with a one to one accapella show down than how he did on his diss joint.

2012 has been a great year. I’ll call it the year of experimenting, whether fashion brands, trends, and other little random things. Some good, some bad, as well as things that made us be like WHAT THE @#$%?! So I came up with a list of things that I thought shouldn’t be in style in 2013. Let
s hope people listen to me.
1) Leather pants.
It was cool in the 80’s when comedians and singers like Eddie Murphy, Michael Jackson and Rick James did it. But it’s not cool to do now. Surely those great artists is what inspired Kanye West to rock leather pants this year. But let’s hope he and others whom are rocking it don’t carry it over into 2013.
2) Honey Boo Boo
I’m sick of this already. The question is, who gives a darn? I just don’t get the point about this show.
3) Gangnam style dance
While I’m happy about this latest dance phenomenon, it can get quite annoying. The Koreans won’t let it go and either will the Chinese. Of course America loves it, but let’s hope that PSY could create something new to make us forget about his Gangnam style movements.
4) That Sh@$ Cray
Jay Z and Kanye West had a great 2012 with Watch The Throne. The album is definitely DOPE. And N@##$% In Paris was the album’s anthem. If you didn’t like the song in the beginning, you eventually became a fan of it because Jay and Ye MADE YOU LOVE IT! They even had you saying That Sh@$ Cray. But let’s leave it out of 2013. It could be annoying as Oh SNAPS!
5) Fur Vests
I’m not a PETA supporter, however I’d stand with them on this issue. This is total trash. Looks like carpet or a floor mat. Get rid of this mess.
6) Glasses w/ no lens
This is big in China. What’s the friggin point? Why wear glasses if there aren’t going to be any lens in them? What’s so cool about this? Another failure.
When Rihanna was first introduce to the world, she seemed to be this sweet little innocent young lady. Well, now it has all changed. Or is it that she’s innocently NAUGHTY? Either way. She’s happy and perhaps her fans are too. Especially big booty strippers working that pole.
She sangs ‘Strip clubs and dollar bills/I still got my money/Patron shots, can I get a refill/I still got my money/Strippers going up and dance that pole/Four o’clock and we aint going home/Cause I still got my money’.
Perhaps her Unapologetic album was right to include this single to end 2012, as the club would be going wild to this record.
Check out Pour It Up from her Unapologetic album.

IS THAT A KILLER IN YOUR CORNER
Killers come in all shapes and sizes; but the consciousness to become a killer starts early. Kids who are severely bullied, rejected, or have mental illnesses are the main likely of candidates to become epic mass murderers. Of course now they could be harmless but later that may not be the case. If you think your child is being neglected talk to them. They could be the end of you so hurry. For full story visit CNN.COM
Was just talking with my students today about personal hygiene and how a nice breath is important in all situations, especially when having a face to face encounter with someone. You want your breath to be squeaky clean. Must take care of everything oral. TEETH, GUMS, an TONGUE. If not, folks like Shanna Malcolm will come after you. Did you see her Brush That Tongue video? She got down with that one. The joint is also available via https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/brush-that-tongue/id583932891?i=583933016

Outkast Big Boi’s new album Vicious Lies & Dangerous Rumors is in stores now. The album is dope. One of my home team favorites is In The A, ft. T.I. & Ludacris. One three of them went H.A.M. on that joint. But did any of you hear what happened at the video shoot? Being that I’m over here in Beijing, China right now, I’m missing all of the action. So I gotta keep up with what’s happening in my home via word of mouth and internet, thanks to this VPN (Virtual Private Network) I’m using to log into sites the Chinese government censors. Anyway, tonight is a good night for my VPN to work. Shouts out to Big Boi, T.I. and Luda for putting together a vid for this joint. If hadn’t done this, we wouldn’t be catching any of the ratchet action that went down at the shoot. LOL!

Complex Magazine names Essence Atkins, Robinne Lee, Meagan Good, and Gabrielle Union #1 in their The 25 Sexiest Sisters In Movies feature
Remember the 2003 African American comedy film Deliver Us From Eva, which evolved around LL Cool J’s character, Ray, a master player, being paid to date a troublesome young lady named Eva, played by Gabrielle Union? And do you know about Complex Magazine, which was founded in 2002 by Marc Ecko? Just incase you don’t remember either or neither, it’s a must that you find much out about both the movie and the magazine due to some awesome news, perhaps for the fellas. The film had some of the hottest women in Hollywood if you ask me. What I mean is that they all being together in one film made them even hottest. Guess it was hot enough for Josh Robertson over at www.complex.com to give them the number 1 spot in his The Sexiest Sisters in Film feature. And they are Essence Atkins, Robinne Lee, Meagan Good, and Gabrielle Union. One can argue, yet can’t deny that those are some bad women right there, on and off film. Could you imagine in real life if they were blood related siblings? That would be DANGEROUS. Personally, the movie itself was alright back then. Maybe wouldn’t be as funny to me now. However, I could watch it with the volume muted. It’ll be for a worthy cause.
Is Kendrick Lamar the future of hip-hop
Even though the cost of hearing aids may not be a concern for me today, blasting Kendrick Lamar’s Good Kid, MAAD City album on Dr Dre Headphones may cause hearing problems in the near future. Just joking, but dude is a lyrical genius if you ask me. Compared to artist such as Nas and Andre 3000, is Kendrick Lamar the future of hip-hop? What do you think? Don’t be afraid to leave a comment on this one. Your opinion counts!
“I’ve been in that contract for 16 years,” he explained. “Yeah, the other day he let me out of it, so big shout-outs to Diddy. I guess he woke up feeling good and he wanted to do something good.” – Ma$e speaking about Sean P. Diddy Combs
The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.The off and sometimes on again rapper, Ma$e is now a free agent after Bad Boy CEO Sean P. Diddy Combs as finally released the Harlem rapper from his contract with the label after 16 long years.
Well that was good, and it makes you wonder why Diddy kept the guy in the contract for so long? I mean he was his (Diddy) prized package since the unfortunate death of the late great Notorious B.I.G. So yeah, go figure! But anyway, both can move on now. But now that Ma$e is free, will he sign with Kanye? He did with Ye on the G.O.O.D. Music ‘s Cruel Summer compilation project. He does admire Yeezy’s work ethic as well as the creative space he gives his artists. Perhaps in today’s era of hip hop and Ma$e’s style, G.O.O.D. Music may well be the place for the Harlem emCee.
Check out this RapFix interview w/ Ma$e being interviewed by MTV’s own Sway Calloway.
I got shot 5 times but I’m still breathing Living proof there’s a God – if you need a reason. – 2Pac – Letter To My Unborn Child
No Rick Ross didn’t get shot and God forbid it happens. But is the BOSS TALK too much to which it could make him a target for hoodlums? Ross had tour to which he then cancelled. He says it was do to an due with a promoter. Yet it’s rumored that it was because of death threats by members of a southside Chicago street gang that goes by the name Gangster Disciples.
In response to the death threat talk, the MMG rapper and CEO stated that he’s a certified man, a real boss and this is something that everybody needs to understand. Could those words right there get the bawse, as he pronounces it, tested? God forbid.

Mothers file lawsuit against South Fulton Hospital for death of 4 babies
While at home looking for another article to share with you guys -with my old MacBook at my french bistro table– I received a call from a good friend of mine. So now you’re getting an earlier scoop of news before it hits the air (assuming you’ve read this before tonight). Neglect by doctors at South Fulton Hospital turns into the death of 4 babies and the fifth injured. Now the mothers of the deceased babies have decided to sue the hospital.
Race and ethnicity has always been a complex matter, especially regarding people of color, or BLACKNESS. There’s still that one percent factor. In other words, if there’s even a “pinch” of black blood in your DNA then you’re black. A huge factor during the African slave trade and still exist in modern society. Positive or negative? If looking at the current American president, Barack Obama, then POSITIVE, or NEGATIVE, via perception (good or bad), pride and prejudice. How about American professional golfer, Tiger Woods, who refers to his ethnic make-up as “Cablinasian” due to the mixed ancestry of his parents? When millions look at him, they see a black man. Well, not until his recent publicized scandal regarding an extra marital affair. Identification is in the number 1’s of problems regarding how people view themselves and others. Could there ever be one answer to define this matter?

Exclusive interview with Atlanta’s own DJ Jelly
I had the opportunity to kick it with one of the dopest DJ’s in Atlanta last week and I am excited to share it with you guys. DJ Jelly invited me out to Milos Bar in Marietta, GA for their Monday Night Football event. It was a cool experience for me to stand in the DJ booth and checkout Jelly as he mixed, scratched, and cut some of the hottest jams out right now.
This was my first big interview for The MartaCard Report, s/o to the staff and all of our viewers for helping us get to this point. A real stand up guy, DJ Jelly schooled me on the fundamentals of breaking a record. We also talked about a lot of interesting topics in hip-hop. One question I asked, “Who is the dopest artist in the rap game right now” and Jelly said “Kendrick Lamar”. He gave his honest opinion on several other artist in the game and I realized that we have similar taste in music.
I also got a chance to meet the club owner Milo and he’s one of the coolest OG’z in Marietta. If you are on the Northside of town and looking for a cool spot to chill, eat good, and drink a few cold ones, come out to Milo’s Bar 11 Garrison Rd. Marietta, GA and tellum E-SUN sent cha!!! Check out the interview below and follow us on Twitter… @Therealdjjelly @Esun99 and @Martacardreport S/O to EdEx, Terry Milla, and MG Films!!
Deadbeat Dad Ordered To Stop Having Kids
On a very unusual charge of not being able to pay his children’s child support, Corey Curtis a 44 year old man was put on probation that states he is not allowed to have any more kids. This, to the judge, was the best plan of action -besides incarceration- for an amazing fine of over $100,000 in fines for his 9 kids. Without a pinch of hesitation Corey agreed to the terms of his probation. For more information click the link: www.foxnews.com
Notorious B.I.G. autopsy is finally released 15 years after his death
15 years later, an unsolved murder case still remains unsolved. The late Christopher Wallace, better known as Biggie Smalls autopsy revealed his cause of death; after 15 long years of course. This report is in fact very late but also pretty informational. He was apparently shot only four times but four deadly times. He took bullets to his left forearm, his back, his left thigh and in more vital places such as his his liver, heart and lung. For more information go to www.cnn.com

Lebron James try to re-ignite Heat
“There is a cloud over our team because we’re not defending like we know we’re capable of defending,” James said. “We have some room for improvement. The good thing is we can be great. But right now, we’re not good. We’re not very good right now as a team and we’ve got to get to that point.”
At some point, as in life, we all must lead, follow, or get out of the way. Lebron takes the Heat upon his shoulders. Will it work? Time will tell.
A game later, Lebron went for 24 Pts, 5 Reb, 7 Ast, as the Miami Heat defeated the New Orleans Hornets 106-90. For details goto www.espn.com
Marquez Knocked Out Pacquiao
A battered and bloody Juan Manuel Marquez pulled off a stunning upset tonight by knocking out Manny Pacquiao. A brutal fight, both Pacquiao and Marquez received devastating blows from one another. Pacquiao was looking great in the first two rounds but in the 3rd, he was caught by a powerful right hand that sent him to the canvass. A couple of rounds later, Pacquiao dropped Marquez with a good punch which seemed to give him control of the fight again. In the 6th round both fighters exchanged devastating blows before Marquez landed a perfect right hand that knocked Pacquiao out cold for the ten count and at least two more minutes. Overall, I think this was the fight of the year! Hats off to both fighters for giving the fans a great moment in boxing history. For more details, visit www.espn.com
2 Chainz Extremely Blessed is one of my favorite songs on the Based on a T.R.U. Story album.
I didn’t know who Trinidad James was in November. One month later, he’s the hottest artist in Atlanta with a bangin single “All Gold Everything”. This guy just started rapping a few months ago and has generated a stronger buzz than most artist only could dream of. Check out his live performance at Atlanta Indie Fest…
Jesus had twelve disciples. And one of them name was Judas Iscariot. People recognize Judas as one who did the ultimate betrayal when he kissed Jesus on the cheeks. Read your Bibles. Well rapper Game and Nipsey Hussle also feels that they’ve betrayed their own souls. For what? Palm streets and 6-4’s. That’s CALIFORNIA right there. You won’t understand it if you’ve never been out there. Timbaland, though from Virginia most support it because he produced the track. The track is BANGING for sure. Dope music. Cop that Jesus Piece album December 11th.

Big Boi – Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors Listening Party
Last week I had the opportunity to visit Stankonia Studio in Atlanta, Ga for Big Boi of (OutKast) Vicious Lies and Dangerous Rumors Listening Party. To be honest I didn’t plan on going to the event, it was a spur of the moment thing for me. Shout out to Angelo for showing so much love and allowing me to take advantage of the situation. Unprepared but optimistic, I shot all of the footage using my 4g android phone.
Big Boi performed “CPU”, and a couple of other songs from the upcomin album. Afterwards he listened to tunes of the remaining songs with the crowd while the dj and band played. A couple of my favorites are “She Said OK” feat. Theophilus London and Tre Luce and “Lines” feat. A$AP Rocky & Phantogram. I was disappointed to find Andre 3000 wasn’t on the album. Overall, I think Big Boi’s album is ok, it will have to grow on me though.
I floated around the venue and snapped a few pics with some artist and familiar faces in the city. Shout out to Dj Jelly, Dj Monte, Big Zak, and Sean Falyon, to name a few.
Don’t you just love Monday Night Football!! The Washington Redskins’ win was gigantic as RG3 proves 2 much for the (NY) Giants. Once again Robert Griffin displays a Really Good performance. RG can stand for Really Good, Rare Guy or Redskin Genius, but one constant, he is hott. RG3 led his team to a 17-16 win over the visiting N.Y Giants Monday night.
