Bounce Music will be the rebirth of hip hop because it’s really just like raw beat in response – Mannie Fresh
If the pioneers of hip hop want to keep its community conservative, then they have much more to be concerned about than rappers wearing skinny jeans, kilts, and gangsters on skate boards. There’s a new movement elevating, called Bounce Music, originated from the streets and clubs of New Orleans. However, bounce music has a more liberal touch than commercial hip hop music, being that it’s big in the gay community as well as in the ghetto streets of the N.O. A short documentary entitled The B.E.A.T. focuses on the non-discriminatory essence of bounce music in New Orleans, putting it on the same level of commercial hip hop. In the gay community, it has coined the nickname “Sissy Bounce”. This short documentary features well renown New Orleans hip hop producer and ex-Cash Money Millionaire Hot Boyz member Mannie Fresh discussing bounce music

Was just telling someone the other day that we (adults) could learn a lot from kids. Aside from the level of education, kids make better teachers. For instance, I’m sure many of you are aware of internet sensation, and no, not PSY Gangnam Style. But Kid President. Kid President is back, giving America a pep talk and quite frankly, it’s the best pep talk ever. It’s not long winded. It’s about 3 minutes 32 seconds straight to the chase truth this young fellow is coming with. Thanks to Rainn Wilson and his son’s soulpancake.com website for giving us this needed pep talk.

A few weeks after announcing his return to music, with his upcoming The 20/20 Experience album, and releasing the first single, Suit & Tie featuring Jay-z, Justin Timberlake releases the accompanying first video. The video is missing Mr. Carter but the visual is dope nevertheless. Combining the black and white theme with the lyric video theme was an innovative twist on both old ideas. Very smooth and creative. I guess Mr. Timberlake is gonna show you a few thangs….show a few things….

Memories Back Then – T.I. ft B.O.B., Kendrick Lamar, & Kris Stephens
Fresh off the release of his eighth studio album, Trouble Man: Heavy Is The Head, Tip releases one of the tracks that didn’t make the final cut. He enlisted fellow Grand Hustle employee B.O.B and the West Coast newcomer Kendrick Lamar to help tackle this storytelling cut. The trio all tackle a story of a female they knew in their past and what has come to them presently. Every man in their 20s and above can relate to one of these stories…
Wale releases a new video from his mix tape, Folarin, that was released this past Christmas break. The video consists of Wale in various spots in the DC metropolitan area. Being a former Howard U student, I know how rough Garfield Terrace was. He also shows off his footwork which he is known for. I like the track’s boom map sound that brings an emphasis to his lyricism. Smooth track…
President Obama just can’t get a break. From congress, the senate, republicans, common people and leaders in the black community to name a few, everyone seems to be going in on President Barack Obama. One of them is professor, orator and author, Dr. Cornel West, who’s upset that the president placed his hands on the Bible of the late civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. while taking the oath during the inauguration of his second term for United States presidency. Cornel West said that the people of Dr. King shouldn’t be played with; the people who stand for liberty, truth and justice. He said it’s ok to put his hand on a Bible, but when it’s “Martin’s Bible”, it’s a little bit personal for him.
Do you think Professor Cornel West should be angry at President Barack Obama for using the Bible of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to take his presidential oath?
