Media / B.E.T REALLY SUCKS NOW!!!!!!!
« on: October 07, 2008, 08:00:18 PM »
Some of us already saw this comming. BET is just another MTV now what is it now,
like MTV 4 (MTV 3 is MTV Espanol)


 

According to Allhiphop. com BET network has confirmed plans to cancel its long-running Hip-Hop series Rap City, effective by the end of this month.


Created by broadcasting veteran Alvin Jones in 1989, the video series chronicled Hip-Hop's growing video music market, competing directly with Yo! MTV Raps.


The fledgling series was able to distinguish itself from its larger MTV competitor by not just focusing on mainstream rappers, but also championing videos and interviews from underground and up and coming artists.


Originally hosted by "The Mayor of Rap City" Chris Thomas for its first several years, Rap City's "golden age" was 1994-1999, when the program was hosted by the colorful and knowledgeable duo of Joe Clair and Leslie Segar AKA Big Lez.


In 1999, the two hour slot was repackaged as Rap City: Tha Basement and christened with new host Big Tigger.


Tigger's run birthed the popular Freestyle Booth session, where MCs would feature their best rhymes or freestyles following their interviews.


After completing their verses, many times with Tigger joining in, the MC(s) would traditionally sign the booth's wall.


These freestyle sessions produced memorable performances from artists such as Ludacris, The Roots, Killer Mike, Chamillionaire, Jay-Z, Jadakiss, Obie Trice, Xzibit, Ca**idy and numerous others.


Since Tigger's 2005 departure, the show failed to establish a concise direction, running through a myriad of hosts and focusing on commercial artists, which failed to showcase Hip-Hop's diverse talent pool as done years before.


Consequently, the show was reduced to a one hour time slot as rating suffered.


The final Rap City episode will commence on October 29, making it the longest running Hip-Hop program at 19 years.


At press time, the show is scheduled to be replaced by The Deal, an hour long video series hosted by DJ Diamond Kutz on November 10.

Media / R.I.P 1Xtra. 1 year anniversary
« on: August 30, 2008, 03:55:42 AM »
It's been a year since one of the best online stations in the UK pa**ed away to
conform to a commercial US style of broadcasting "Urban" music. Not only did it
give us the best in Hip Hop, R&B, and Reggae, but new music styles such as Drum
and Ba**, Garage, Nu-Soul, and Bhangra. 1Xtra, it's a shame that the BBC
murdered you, but you will not be forgotten.................

Hot Traxxx / Old School UK Garage
« on: August 19, 2008, 02:55:39 AM »
Man, I miss the old school UK Garage sound. It was so complex and nice also to
mention rhythmic. Now all you have is a bunch of British kids sounding like Dipset
or G-Unit (no offence to Grime artists). Here's some 92-98 mixes from youtube:

General Discussion / My Rant: ON KWAITO!!!!
« on: August 12, 2008, 03:29:27 AM »
Ok, I may be American but I've been listening to Kwaito since '99. At that time, I was listening to African Hip-Hop and other world music but I fell in love with the sound because it remided me of the days of Funky House music during my childhood. Not only that, it was a combination of Funky House and (commercial)
South African Hip Hop and Reggae. Being the only kid in my cla**room to listen to
the genre, I was an outcast but so what? I had a taste way different from anyone else. My Favorite artists were TKZee, Trompies, Mouzeland, O'demeester, Ghetto Luv, Abashante, Lekgoa (go'head, laugh...), M'du and a few others (I would've included Arthur but there was something too mainstream about him).

Over the years I was into the music but then became uninterested due to the
lack of websites supporting the scene but 8 years later, I'm starting to listen again but something is f***ed up................


Why the hell is there a divide in the genre? You have DJs like Brothers of Peace, DJ Sbu, and DJ Cleo (even though his House stuff is cool) doing House and Kwaito MCs like Kabelo, Zola, Tokollo (or Magesh), and Hip Hop Pantsula trying to become mainstream Hip Hop artists (like they're really doing Hip Hop ::)).

There's a few things I gotta say about this change, I HATE IT! Please return to the origional sound. This reminds me of when Garage divided into Grime and Dubstep. This divide sucks and to the "former" Kwaito rappers, no matter what
you try to be, "YOU'LL ALWAYS BE A FRIKIN' KWAITO ARTIST!! (this sorta excludes TKZee, since they started off as a Hip-Hop group)


That was my $20 rant...........

Media / Nas vs Fox News
« on: July 30, 2008, 08:12:59 PM »
I'm sure some (or most) of you have heard about this but I see that Nas has been Fox's enemy #2 for some time now.  And Fox News is obviously a biased news network. Most of the news is based from a Anglo-Saxson Republican point of view. It's what you'd expect from a network controlled by the US Government and an Australian millionare.

General Discussion / Them were the good old days................
« on: July 09, 2008, 12:00:29 AM »
We all know what Crunk music is.....................well, f*** THAT!! It became
more commercialized ever since 2002. I wanna take y'all back to the Atlanta,
Georgia (ATL, Hotlanta) 1997, before Crunk became what it is now and the
ATL sound was very much like the Miami-Detroit sound. It was all about that
Ba**, Bankhead Bounce, Booty, and cars and way before Lil' Jon ran shit
yelling on tracks......................

General Discussion / Boy better know.......Better!
« on: June 02, 2008, 06:48:58 PM »
Last Friday was strange as hell! My friend has been known to be desperate for ladies since he broke up with his girl months ago. 2 weeks ago, my friend saw some short young fine black chick on the dancefloor at this club. The exchanged numbers and all but days later, my friend left me a voice mail message to call him back. Due to my VM being slow and all, I listened to the message 2 days later. As soon as he called, he told me that she was not only from Trinidad and Tobago, she was also 35 and had 3 kids  !! :o


I knew I should've told him to ignore the girl but hey, my voice mail was slow. The other bad news was that he agreed to pick her up
in the North End of Hartford where she lives. Its a West Indian neighborhood that known infamously for it high crime and violence!!
After getting lost, we finally came to her house which was located
in an apartment.

When we went to the club, she would dance with him and other white guys but no black dudes (me included). My friend said that he was sick of her and I told him that she wanted nothing to do with me, so we decided to ditch her, until the club closed. She got angry that we left her but then we dropped her off. Before she left, she was still hitting on him and telling us about how cruel her ex-husband was for an hour (no wonder why she likes white men).

After she left, my friend was saying how annoying she was and said that he really tried to get this girl to like me instead. I said that this girl probably wanted to scam him for his money. He later thanked me because he couldn't understand her through her accent (thank God I know Caribbean English).

Unfortunatly this girl still calls him.....................................

Man, tonight was one of those weird a** nights, in a good way!!!! Right after
comming out of a club, I run into some Tanzanian dudes. I said wuzup and told them I knew a little Swahili and a little about their Hip Hop scene. They were shocked that an American kid like me listened to Tanzanian Hip Hop artists like
X-Plastas, Dola Soul, and finally Mr. 2!!! One of the dudes was like "I got Mr. 2's number right now!" So he dials him up and next thing you know it, I'm talking to Sugu, the former Mr. 2.


He asks me about how I knew about him and I told him that I knew about Tanzanian Hip Hop through Africanhiphop.com 10 years ago. I found out dude lives in Ma**achussets and is now working on a new album. We exchanged numbers and everything was straight! Man, 10 years ago I'd never thought that I'd meet an famous African Hip Hop artist from the old school era! Who's next, Positive Black Soul..................?

Ah! Bill O'Reilly, the American "conservative" commentator who's known for
debating rappers and politicians on the FOX (Bush) News Network used to
work for tabloid news show "Inside Edition". When I saw this video, I finally
remembered that he was on this program years ago. Here's a music video of
the off-air lashing that he gave the cameraman, which probably cost Bill his job
at IE. Enjoy! ;D
