This dude is the truth I really don't know Emcee Alive that can fuck with him okay maybe a handful but that's it. But seriously how many rappers you know get involved in their community and outside their community, not for political gain or Cd sales? Off hand I can't name any. Can you?
In this teaser the Next 48 Hours With Mystikal @ SXSW we discover while Mystikal was in prison, he received several offers from major labels and at one time, G-Unit South was one of his most attractive offers. After finally deciding on YMCMB, the Young Money members welcome Mystikal with open arms backstage at the YMCMB Show at SXSW.
Lately I have been really feeling Games new vibe, man he is really making some serious conscience HipHop and I love it. He's featuring a lot of new artist from California too Big Ups to Game helping them to get exposure. I like when a Emcee can grow beyond his roots into something bigger then him/her self. Game is no longer writing rhymes for himself but for other people. He's delivering a strong message and I'm sure he is reaching millions of fans from all walks of life with lyrics.

Special Shout out to Miles Esposito born March 18th 2012! I can't wait until this joint come out...its been awhile since I've heard any thing new from Dres. And Jarobi most of you guess probably won't remember but The Tribe Called Quest used to be 4 members instead of 3 if you look back at their first video you will see him.
Just when I thought the next generation of HipHop Emcees suck, I discovering Emcees like Kendrick Lamar and these guys and finally I can relax a little bit. It's good to know "Real" HipHop will survive the test of time. We survived through the "Bling Bling" era we can survive the "Auto tunes" era too. Big up to Real Emcess of the Underground doing what they feel in their hearts and staying away from the corporate machine.
Another HipHop conscience Emcee not being given his proper respect for the skill and the knowledge he brings to the genre. When will we ever learn? Twenty years from now we will see which genre of HipHop stands the test of time.

he HardKnock.TV team caught up with 9th Wonder at Rock The Bells to talk about Drake and 9th's twitter conversation, how they linked up 5 years ago on a record called "Think Good Thoughts" and more. 9th continues by saying that Alchemist, DJ Khalil, others push him to be better but that Nottz is the best pound for pound beat maker right now. He ends this part of the interview by saying that he never met J Dilla but that his music lives forever. Check out www.hardknock.tv for more from 9th Wonder.

Rakim talks to HardKnock.Tv's Nick Huff Barili about the reaction he received from putting out his last album "The Seventh Seal" and he addresses the media exaggerated beef with Nas. Ra goes on to let out the secret that he has been working with Stephen Marley (the generators of his trailer shut down and we lost all the light as soon as he makes announcement, definitely felt like their was a higher energy in the room). When asked if him and Nas could work together in the future, Rakim responds that through the Marley camp maybe him and Nas will do a song together. Lastly he says that if he were to do a song about one person like Nas did of him, Rakim would do it on Muhammad Ali.
It is clear from all those who said they either HEARD or WITNESSED PARTS of what happened and from the 911 tapes that 17year old Trayvon Martin was being stalked/followed by an overweight male in his late 20's named George Zimmerman. Everyone can clearly hear Trayvon's final screams for help while he struggles on the ground with Zimmerman. It seems he did whatever he could to release himself from Zimmerman's overbearing grasp but Zimmerman was obviously angry & frustrated that Trayvon resisted, so he shot him dead. The SANFORD, Fla. police simply asked Zimmerman what happened and Zimmerman said he killed Trayvon in self-defense and the police let him go back inside his home without charging him with anything. Zimmerman killed because he wanted to. Zimmerman stalked, attacked and then he killed Trayvon. We can hear him admit to the stalking and chasing Trayvon on one of the 911 calls he made moments before he KILLED a young man that didn't deserve to die. Racism will never end in this world if the LAW continues to let EVIL RACIST PEOPLE GET AWAY WITH CRIMES LIKE THIS. What's even more sad is the Racist Police Officers that tried for weeks to just close this case under the "self-defense" excuse. Why do you think they held the 911 tapes for a few weeks & dismissed what all the witnesses told him. The 911 Tapes and all the witnesses proved this was pure Racism, unresolved anger issues, murder and an attempt to COVER IT ALL UP by the Florida Police.
George's FATHER Robert Zimmerman wrote a one page letter to the Orlando Sentinel and in the letter he states that his son is HISPANIC but he grew up in a multi-racial home.

For the first time in history a interview with B.I.G.'s daughter T'yanna Wallace. Wow...she was just 3 years old when Biggie was killed what ashame it had to be that way. I'm just glad she was able to benefit from Biggie's success, she seems to be a well rounded young woman. Even if Biggie didn't make sure his children were going to be financially set, P.Diddy should have covered the bill because his career wouldn't have gone anywhere with out The Notorious B.I.G....R.I.P. In fact P.Diddy should make sure that Biggie's grand children are straight too...lol Just my opinion...
Thisis50 invaded Club Rebel for the 15th Year Memorial Celebration of Notorious B.I.G.
Black Rob, Fred The Godson & DJ Ted Smooth all pay their respect to Biggie Smalls. Honestly if BIG was still alive a lot of rappers would not have been able to get in the game. It would have been different Jay-Z might not have had the success he has now he wouldn't have been as relevant. Think about it...
I'm not really a fan of 50 Cent music but I respect him as a business man. But I loved when he did this because World Star Hip Hop is the BET of the internet with all of its garbage it promotes to our people...!!!
After dinner and a listening session of Killer Mike's upcoming project, "R.A.P. Music at Treesound Studio, Killer Mike speaks on the love he had for his grandmother who recently passed. He says that Rap music is the only thing he has left. He also speaks on himself and other artists like Big Krit & David Banner repping their hometown.
Big K.R.I.T. on the release day of his incredible new mixtape 4eva N a Day. He broke down the concept behind the album and its cover, how the project came about and what it felt like to release it. He also talked about the first single, Boobie Miles, and some of his favorite songs on the project. Check out the video below and listen to and download the mixtape here.
Young Jack Thriller recently spoke with Russell Simmons for an exclusive interview! He gives his overall view on Occupy Wall Street and why he supports it, new book "Super Rich", Starting Def Jam 25 Years ago, 50 Cent's initiative to feed a billion people with SK, drug use, people thinking he is selfish, his website "GlobalGrind", Diggy Simmons, And DMX.
The legendary rapper breaks down how he adapted his hustling mentality to his success during his come up and how he still uses those skills today. Money without intelligence will always leave you broke. This is why most successful Emcees are not able to maintain their lifestyle because of mismanagement of money. If you can't handle 1000 how are suppose to handle 100,000?
Thisis50 & Young Jack Thriller recently spoke with Keith Murray for an exclusive interview. He talks about the clip online which was titled that he fought Tupac, beating up Def Jam employer, where he was in the past couple of years, and drug usage. I'm just glad to see him back in the studio again HipHop is missing Real Lyricism.
This guy has some skills imagine how many other people out there with potential that never get a chance to benefit from their natural given talent. This is why family is very important in our communities. Individuals like this never usually find their way because of dysfunctional families growing up without a father living in poor conditions. I hope this guy turns his life around big up to Cassidy for giving him the opportunity to be heard. Do you have a family member with unused potential?
Had to show some love for this kat man he breaks all the stereotypes for rappers/producers from the south. I'm definitely sold on BIG K.R.I.T., besides him and K-Rino there are not too many conscience rappers that I know from the south. Mainly because the media and the corporations don't sponsor them because we don't support conscience HipHop as a whole. Do you know of any other conscience rapper?
Blue Chips is an off the cuff, spontaneous project that started as a vibe session one winter afternoon and spiraled into a 17 song dusted journey through the warped comedic minds of Action Bronson and the prodigy producer/artist known simply as Party Supplies.
This journey includes appearances by Roc Marci, Meyhem Lauren and Das Racist and was recorded in the confines of Party Supplies Williamsburg chalet. It's a project as opposed to a mixtape or an album and sits in a nether world somewhere between the two.
Most of all it's a moment in time made in a 3 week period of hanging out at Party Supplies house. In between cheese plates, snaps and spliffs the 2 artists came up with this testament of creativity and spontaneity. This is HipHop man its true real artist always get paid less and have less notoriety. But the respect they get in the streets last for years to come.
