American Gangster Soundtrack: Anthony Hamilton - Do You Feel Me




Via Notes From a Different Kitchen.




Brother Reade - Like Duh





F*ck 50 Cent & All Homophobes in Hip Hop

I don't care why you're homophobic. Whether it's because you're stupid or you went to a stupid church or you grew up with stupid people.

But you can all shove it up your fat collective asses.

You're ruining hip hop. You're ruining American society. You're ruining yourself.

Kill yourselves now so that all of us who care about human liberation, whatever our sexual orientation, can just live in a little peace.

Punk ass f*ckheads.

[a public service message from the good people who care about the future and don't have their heads shoved up their asses.]

Donny Goines - Never Let My Talent Die [Prod. by Disco D]

Donny Goines is freely spreading the track Never Let My Talent Die produced by the late Disco D and here's why:

This record is very special to me for a lot of different reasons. I dedicated this song to his parents because I lost a son as well and I know how it feels to lose a child. Reguardless tho, D worked so hard on his music and I feel that it needs to be heard. God forbid if I died today, I couldn't rest in peace if all the music and things I worked on were buried with me.

Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts Vandalized in a Series of Attacks Over the Weekend

[Press Release]
Law Enforcement Officials Are Deeming the Attacks 'Hate Crimes' After Finding Noose Tied Around the Neck of the Tupac Statue

ATLANTA, Oct. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) regrets to report that a series of attacks have taken place at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts, 5616 Memorial Drive, Stone Mountain, Georgia. The first incident occurred in the early hours of Saturday, October 20th, when vandals defaced the building as well as tying a noose around the neck of the bronze statue of Tupac Shakur located in the Center's Peace Garden. The attacks are being investigated as hate crimes by the De Kalb County Sheriff's Office. The second incident occurred at the Center at 2:00 AM Monday morning when the statue was damaged further. A male has been arrested and is currently being held in custody.

The noose hung around the statue's neck is an imitation of other cases recently reported in the media after a surge of hate crimes. The statue was also plastered with handbills of garbled rants that include references to 9/11 and Hurricane Katrina as well as vague threats against various record companies and rappers. The manner of the attack indicates it is the work of one or more individuals.

Says Afeni Shakur, "We thank everyone for their prayers and support. Although our hearts are temporarily in pain, our spirits have already forgiven the perpetrators. Hate comes in all colors and genders therefore we will use this act of hate and ignorance to bring our community together and to pray for the healing of those who harbor such feelings. With God's guidance, the work of the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts and Peace Garden will continue to positively impact and transform our community."

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation is now in the process of raising money to construct a fence around the parameters of the Center to prevent these types of incidents from occurring again.

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts will kick off its 2nd Bi-Annual Film Screening with a re-dedication service of the Peace Garden on Saturday, November 10, 2007 at 1:00 PM. Following the service will be a film screening and panels from film industry experts. Both events are free to the public.

Donations can be sent to TASF, 5616 Memorial Drive, Stone Mountain, GA 30083 or at http://www.tasf.org/ and http://www.2paclegacy.com/

About the Foundation:

The Tupac Amaru Shakur Foundation (TASF) was founded by Afeni Shakur to provide training and support to artists who aspire to enhance their creative talents. TASF fosters an environment that encourages freedom of expression, serves as a resource for the arts, and empowers through education. To date, more than 700 students have benefited from the program with a broad range of training available via the Annual Performing Arts Day Camp held at the Tupac Amaru Shakur Center for the Arts (home of the Foundation in Stone Mountain, Georgia).

Immortal Technique: Gangsta Rap is Hip Hop

I can't cosign all of Immortal Techniques views but I love the way he puts the torch to the gangsta rap vs hip hop debate.

He does it through an extended looks at values and history.

I just say rap is one of the elements regardless of whatever extra words you toss in front of it.

Ignorance: Wyclef Jean Compares T.I. to Malcom X

I haven't been keeping up with the details but I'm mostly sympathetic to T.I.'s plight. There's some big questions that remain but there's also the possibility that he's a rich gun nut who loves ganj as does his entourage, i.e., he's a successful American.

Unfortunately the judge is grandstanding and that suggests a very negative outcome on sentencing.

However, speaking of delusional statements, Wyclef Jean's Malcolm X comparison is a bit sickening:
I watched him on 'Hip-Hop vs. America,' and I saw the way he was talking just like Malcolm X. The conversation started getting deeper and deeper. And I think he has influence. When he speaks, it moves a whole generation.

Talking just like Malcolm X [but without the substance, the vision or the will to change the world] and moving a whole generation [to buy his records].

I'm becoming increasingly less concerned about the split between the Civil Rights Generation and the Hip Hop Generation than I am about intelligent people who can honestly compare T.I. to Malcolm X or claim that "rap music has done more for racial equality than any other personality or element has done."

That's just ignorant nonsense.
