Wyclef speaks on Yele.org accusations

Wyclef gave an emotional press conference to clear up the information that was posted by the Smoking Gun this weekend. I am not going to link the article because I find it in poor taste.

Wyclef has always been there for Haiti and has been an ambassador for a long time.  I think his work speaks for itself. Watch the video below and dont forget to text “YELE” to 501501 to donate $5 towards relief efforts.



ABC aired the video below and it caused a lot of controversy and discussion. I asked 2 friends to shed light on this issue. Their responses are after the jump

I came across this article and felt it was important to get the word out to new artists about these shady practices going on.

Many of us journalists with actual degrees in journalism and communications feel as if our jobs are being taken away by a geek with internet access. This theory is made a reality by various websites having the ability to sustain as much daily hits and unique users as mainstream media outlets; therefore making it hard to determine the credibility of the reporting and posts listed. The end result is amateur “industry” representatives taking advantage of the unsigned talent; payola.

Payola is when a person of influence i.e. a DJ or journalist takes money for “promoting” something as if it is their genuine belief. It is simply a paid advertisement without telling the public it is an advertisement. In short, payola is nothing new to Hip Hop, but with Twitter and the Internet being widely used, it is becoming more accessible than ever. Many website owners, promoters, bloggers and DJs have a much easier avenue to reach their prey; an unsigned artist.

Why is payola a bad thing? It is because you, the public, trust the opinion of a certain DJ/journalist/website. If they tell you something or someone is good for whatever reason, you should believe what they say. But if they really don’t feel that way and are just getting a paycheck, where is the credibility? Then you, the consumer wonder why there isn’t any “good music” out.



Meet Rihanna’s New Man

Rihanna has been busy running the town with her new hubby Matt Kemp of the L.A Dodgers. Let’s see how long this one will last!!


I know everyone and their momma is doing a best of 2009 type of list etc. Mine is based on the opinion of a dude who just likes hot beats and hot rhymes. That’s the reason why I decided to post my list. I love music and hip hop in general and wanted to give my opinion as the average cat who just about visits every hip hop site known to man in search of good music to listen to. So here I present to you my Top 10 Albums/Mixtapes for 2009. Enjoy and def check out this music if you havent already.


#1 The Salvation – Skyzoo
If you missed this album on your list then choke ya self!! For me, Skyzoo is the perfect definition of an underground mc & he’s better than any other rapper out there. The album contains strong lyrical delivery & ear catching production. This is the perfect album to save hip hop or at least to learn that there is a lot more to hip hop than Lil Wayne

#2 OB4CL2- Raekwon

As the first track cued I lost my mind the first time I played the album because I noticed that it’s the continuation to OB4CL pt1. That made me realize that this is more than an album, it’s a movie. A movie told by one of the games best storytellers Raekwon. This album was well worth the wait. Hope to see you on my 2010 list Dr. Dre



Jay Electronica & The Clipse Collabo?

This may actually go down!!? If it wasn’t enough that Jay Electronica ended 09 with a little hope left
for real hip hop, Now it looks like he’s about to make 2010 an interesting year for listeners. Via twitter today, Jay & Malice(from the clipse) made the link for this possible future collabo. And if
this does happen, all I ask for is a Kanye or Just Blaze beat.

In the meantime I give you Exhibit C…….
