Freddie Gibbs recalls Michael Jackson returning to his hometown Gary, Indiana; seeing killas and thugs fainting (cartoon footage)

This has to be one of the funniest Michael Jackson stories ever told in rap history. We all know that Michael Jackson and the rest of the Jackson’s were natives of Gary, Indiana before signing to Berry Gordy’s infamous Motown Records; joining the likes of famous singers, musicians and songwriters such as Diana Ross & The Supremes, Stevie Wonder, Lionel Richie, Gladys Knight to name a few. After Michael and the Jackson’s career took off, they eventually moved to California and began living that Hollywood showbiz life. Michael left Gordy’s Motown label for Epic Records to which he released Off The Wall and Thriller, and eventually ended up becoming the greatest entertainer of all time. Years prior to Michael’s untimely death, he took a trip back to his hometown, Gary, Indiana. It was the happiest day on earth for the people of Gary.

Rapper Freddie Gibbs tells the story of MJ’s hometown visit to which fans were thrilled to see the King of Pop. He mentioned Michael stopping by KFC, ordering all of the chicken via drive-through and people being pissed off because there was no more chicken left. The funniest thing he mentioned though, was seeing THUGS crying and KILLAS fainting because they were so happy to see Michael Jackson. LMBO!

Shouts out to Freddie Gibbs for dropping this exclusive cartoon about Michael Jackson’s visit back to Gary, Indiana.

What does a Suge Knight and Snoop Lion reconciliation mean?

Snoop-and-Suge-Knight-600x600 - CopyWell surely you’ve all heard by now the BREAKING NEWS regarding the reconciliation of one time partners, Suge Knight and Snoop Lion aka/formerly known as Snoop D-O-double G, who started his music career via Knight and former partner Dr. Dre’s then label, Death Row Records imprint. Clearly it’s the most surprising reconciliation ever to date in music and hip hop history, topping the once heavy beef that was squashed by the two Kings of New York, Nas and Jay Z, as the Jigga Man stunned the crowd on the set of his “I Declare War” concert(1995) in East Rutherford , NJ when saying these words, “Let’s Go Esco”, to which the Queensbridge eMCee joined him on stage. Not many music moguls can celebrate a reunion or reconciliation as egos are way too heavy, especially in hip hop. In the words of Sleepy Brown “Cuz everybody wants to be a tough guy”. Another reason is that either one of both artists, crews, etc. are now deceased, some in tragic situations before there could ever be an official reunion. And another serious issue is MONEY. Many artists are enslaved to their labels and any association or reunion with a former comrade, according the label, ruins the possibility to make more money. So for that matter, those artists tends to ride for their label, bearing the pain of not being able to reconnect with their old homies again.

As for the case with Suge and Snoop, who’s long period infamous beef didn’t end with neither of them getting killed, THANK GOD; what happens next? What does their reunion mean to all whom stood by either or both throughout the last 16/17 years of the two being at odds? What are people saying about Suge? What are they saying about Snoop? For many, Suge is one of the most feared men on the face of the earth, while Snoop on the other hand, is the world’s favorite UNCLE, can do whatever he wants, including CHANGING HIS NAME (see Snoop Lion) and no one will trip. What does this mean for Snoop’s relationship with is mentor Dr. Dre and Tha Dogg Pound? What does this mean for the Bloods & Crips street gang? Snoop and Suge

Regardless whether it has any meaning or not, PEACE is BETTER THAN WAR. Hey, they may never become the best of friends again. However, they both can exhale. To give meaning to their reconciliation, it’s their business and they don’t have to answer to anyone for that matter. Was it a none gangster move for them to PEACE UP? Naw, what it did was SOLIDIFY what it means to be gangster. And at the end of the day, BEEFING DOES NOTHING BUT WASTE TIME!. So what happens next between the two? Guessing we’ll have to wait and see. Yet in the meantime, SALUTE to Suge Knight and Snoop Lion for being “G” about it.

Lil Wayne ask for forgiveness from LeBron James and the city of Miami (audio)


Maybe Lil Wayne has a soft spot after all. Remember a few days ago, a video went viral of the YMCMB rapper dissing the hell out of the Miami Heat and a few of it’s player, as well as calling himself the new Pac (Tupac Shakur) in his reference to sticking Heat’s player, Chris Bosh’s wife. Well, he most had a sit down with someone who told him to reflect on what he did and if it was a good thing do to, because he sat down with Miami, FL 99 Jamz radio station personality, Felicia Monae to issue an open apology to the entire city of Miami for calling out its local team, well Lebron James because of their friendship and he knowing Bron’s mom. He however said that he doesn’t apologize for that night.

“I don’t apologzie for that night. I don’t apologize for being who I am. That’s who I am. This is who I am and yes I did say those things.”

Asking if he apologize for calling himself the new Pac and saying he smashed Chris Bosh’s wife? As simply put, in his own words, “That ain’t important.”

See the video.

Arrest made in elderly East Point man’s murder

Atlanta News, Weather, Traffic, and Sports | FOX 5

Authorities made an arrest Tuesday in connection to the murder of a 92-year-old East Point man.  Julius Dewberry was found dead in his home on Jefferson Avenue last week, and police say Christopher D. Roberts has been charged in the case.

Dewberry died of blunt force trauma, authorities say.  According to the incident report, authorities were initially called to the home for a welfare check. A cousin visiting Dewberry found him unresponsive and lying on the couch.

Dewberry’s wife had a stroke in 2011. Their daughter came down from New Jersey to bring her mother to a nursing home up north. She tried to get her father to go as well but he didn’t want to leave his home. Just a few weeks ago, she came back down to try to convince her father to go back.

Authorities say there appears to be signs of forced entry and they believe robbery was a motive. They said they do not believe this was a random killing.

Gaynell Williams, Dewburry’s sister-in-law, said that he was a World War II veteran. She visited him once a week, bringing him food, taking him to the store and the doctor.   Williams says her family is heartbroken.

No other details were immediately given about Roberts’ arrest.

Freddie Gibbs Disses Young Jeezy and Defends Gangster Rap

Freddie Gibbs Disses Young Jeezy

Freddie Gibbs signed with Young Jeezy’s CTE label a while back and things didn’t work out well for him. According to Freddie Gibbs, he and Jeezy disagreed with how his career was being handled. Gibbs felt that Young Jeezy was more concerned about pushing his own brand instead of focusing on Freddie Gibbs. Gibbs also disagreed with T.I.’s opinion that gangster rap is dead. This was a good interview, s/o to Freddie Gibbs, Chicago, and 107.5 WGCI.

Lil Wayne calls himself the new 2Pac (video)

“I ain’t 2Pac, I’m the new Pac. Holla at cha boy.” – Lil Wayne

If you thought comparing rough sex to the late Emmett Till was enough, what about making self comparisons to 2Pac? Well, how about calling oneself 2Pac? Being obviously upset about being banned from all NBA Events by NBA team, the Miami Heat, YMCMB rapper Lil Wayne went on a tantrum to which he dissed the Heats and its fellow players Lebron James, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, he then went on to call himself the new 2Pac. And it seem as if to a great surprise, he didn’t receive any boos from the crowd. Remember Pac’s infamous record Hit’em Up, to which he introduction had this to say to the late Notorious B.I.G.: “That’s why I F***’d Your B@#$% you fat MuthaF****?” Well, Lil Wayne, seeming to be referencing Pac’s Biggie diss, claims to have sex’d Chris Bosh (Miami Heat)‘s wife. Has he gone too far? It’ll be interesting to see what’ll happen next.

Emmett Till was enough, who in 1955 was visiting family in Mississippi, was murdered by a mob of angry white men for allegedly whistling at a white woman. He was only 14. 2Pac in 1996, died several days following a Mike Tyson fight in Las Vegas, Nevada due to complications from multiple gun shot wounds. He was only 25.

Check out the video of Lil Wayne calling himself the new 2Pac.

Yet the coolest part about it all is that two dudes from two different sides of the planet with two different native languages can get together and put on a CLASSIC performance. Be on the look out for more coming from us. In the meantime:

J. Cole – Truly Yours EP


The Roc Nation/ North Carolina representer dropped a 5 song EP (click picture above) along with this letter to his fans this morning:

It’s time.

I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .

Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..

The wait is over.

Truly Yours,

Born Sinner

PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.

MartaCard.com exclusive interview w/ former Aftermath Entertainment artist, Bishop Lamont


I had the wonderful privilege to chop game with the bigg homie Bishop Lamont, representing Carson, California. Lamont was once signed to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment label and is now an independent artist and CEO of Diocese Records. His latest street album, The Layover features a slew of artists from both the West and East coast, such as Focus, Raekwon the Chef (Wu Tang Clan), Planet Asia, and former Ruff Ryder affiliate, DMX to name a few. Prior to the 2012 reelection of the United States of America’s president, Barack Obama, Lamont with a comedic twist, went in on former Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, stating how things would have gotten messed up if he was voted president. The brother is definitely prolific and indeed one of the most UNDERRATED eMcees in hip hop, let along the West Coast, which has been overshadowed by gangsta rapper music since it’s start nearly 30 years ago. He enlightened me on some profound things, including the current start of hip hop as well as the meaning behind some of his previous materials; Hallelujah, ft. Xzibit being one of them. He also broke name the meaning of a word that he considers more powerful and derogative than the ‘N’ word. In this near 16 minute phone recorded interview, you’ll get to hear the Bishop Lamont you’ve always wanted to know. YA DIGGGG!
