"Hate Speech" Causes Facebook To Temporarily Deactivate Lil B's Account
"Hate Speech" Causes Facebook To Temporarily Deactivate Lil B's Account Dec 16, 2014 at 05:00pm
Apparently free speech does not exist on Facebook because last night Lil B got his profile disabled for 30 days by the powers that be for a post. Yes, that's right. A teeny-tiny, one sentence post against America was enough to incite Facebook to block the Bay Area rapper. The post, which said, "If you were born in the 1950's or before and your family did not push to have segregation and slavery stop ur grandparents are pussy," got over a thousand "likes" before Facebook got wind of it and shut it down.

Samples Of The Week: April 17
Samples Of The Week: April 17 Apr 17, 2014 at 09:37am
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music. Today, sampling has become less common, but a choice sample can still push a track from lukewarm to hot faster than you can say "uh-huh honey".

The cross-section of hip hop and basketball culture is a large one with both influencing each other’s style, and stars of each hailing from the same regions.  In 2004, Jay-Z bought into the Nets for $350,000, which was only valued at roughly 0.15% of the franchise.  Although not a large investor, Jigga became the sideline face of the franchise, and was involved in moving the team from the Meadowlands to Brooklyn.

J. Cole Talks On His Production Style & Whether Or Not He Likes Lil B Mar 4, 2013 at 05:08pm
J. Cole has a come a long way since his debut mixtape projects and signing with Roc Nation. Like with many rappers trying to come up, Cole learned to rap by imitating his idols. However, as he's gotten more mature and progressed in the rap game, Cole developed his own distinct sound, both in his bars and his beats. His sound is one that merges pop and rap so that Cole has mainstream appeal, but is able to remain true hip-hop at the same time.
