It goes without saying that 2020 has been the worst year in modern history thanks to the Coronavirus pandemic, but for the culture specifically the loss of both Kobe Bryant (R.I.P.) and Pop Smoke (R.I.P.) already had us down on the year before face masks became the new everyday necessity.

Luckily for his hardcore fans, Pop Smoke had already shot a video for his Quavo assisted “Shake The Room” which features the Brooklyn rapper and ATLien living their best lives in fancy restaurants, fancy automobiles, and toasting to life. Real talk, it was kinda hard to watch the Virgil Abloh directed video. Just sad all around.

Back in the South, Lil Durk enjoys the fruits of his own labor and turns up from his home to his shows in his clip to “All Love.”

Sean Garrett & The-Dream Went Head To Head In Epic “Battle of the Writers” On IG Live

2020 Leaders & Legends Ball

Source: Prince Williams / Getty

Sean Garrett and The-Dream are both known for their legendary bops, but when the two were asked to go head to head as a part of Swizz Beatz and Timbaland’s iconic battle series–fans got more than they expected.

On Saturday (Mar 28) Swizz Beatz and Timbaland announced that after the success of their producers battle series, that took place earlier this week and featured not only Swizz and Timbaland battling their classic records but new school superproducers Boi 1da and Hit-Boy as well, the duo shifted focus from battle of the beats to battle of the pen.

“We can’t wait for you to see who we have up next,” Swizz said prior to the event. “We have Sean Garrett and The-Dream going at it, trust me their catalog is crazy. It’s going to be a real battle, but fun because we are doing this for the culture.”

As the battle kicked off between the two iconic writers, many noticed that Sean Garrett was visibly off of his game. From erratic outbursts of calling The-Dream out of his name, to making eccentric facial expressions, something was different about the hitmaker and many pointed to alcohol.

“He’s drunk,” one fan wrote.”C’mon Sean you came lit lit, you basically gave Dream the W.”

Despite the “Upgrade U” writer’s semi-incapacitated state, the battle forged on lasting more than 4 hours, before ending with many declaring The Dream as the ultimate winner.

Although the battle was created for fun and the culture, Garrett took to IG Live on Sunday (Mar 29), to dispute the crowd declared winner and address allegations that he was under the influence during the battle after the question came up during a Q&A session with fans.

“I was not drunk or on anything,” Garrett said during the live. “Ya’ll don’t know my vibe or my personality, so of course ya’ll think that but I was just excited about the battle and running on no sleep.”

After hearing Garrett’s response and continued trolling of The-Dream during his live, battle coordinator Swizz Beatz jumped on the live and decided to weigh in on the discussion, calling Garrett out for being more than “just tired.”

“Sean, brother I love you and I know you, but you weren’t just tired,” Swizz said. “I talked to your team and they said you were drinking before the battle and that’s alright, but just say that because you looking wild trying to say anything other than that. I know you were excited about the battle, you were all day, but saying you were sober ain’t it.”

After much prodding from the “On to the Next One” producer, Garrett conceded, sticking to his explanation that he was suffering from sleep exhaustion, but added that he was off due to taking a pain killer for a toothache.

“Swizz you know me, I wasn’t on anything man,” Sean Garrett said. “I mean I had been in the studio for two days straight, that’s why I asked for more time. Plus I had a toothache so I took some Tylenol but that was it.”

The Osiris Of This: Celebrating The 25th Anniversary Of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s ‘Return To The 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version’

Ol' Dirty Bastard Shoots "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" Video

Source: Al Pereira / Getty

The Wu-Tang Clan shifted the recording industry in the 1990s by not only emerging as an unstoppable collective but also securing solo deals for the nine members of the group’s top tier. Ol’ Dirty Bastard emerged as a star for the New York crew by way of his debut album Return to the 36 Chambers: The Dirty Version, which was released 25 years ago today (March 28).

RZA, GZA, the aforementioned Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God, and Masta Killa transformed the Hip-Hop landscape with their debut album, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers) in 1993. The single “Protect Your Neck,” which introduced much of the world to the Wu Swordsman, featured a verse from ODB that, alongside Method Man’s scene-stealing turn, burned itself into the memory of fans for good reason.

Hip-Hop fans approached ODB’s solo album with hopes that it would feature more of the same left-field styled coupled with the “what will he do next” personality the rapper born Russell Jones became famous for. They were not disappointed on that front.

After an intro that puts all of the zaniness of ODB at the front of the mind for the listeners, “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” blares through with RZA’s signature thump and ODB’s performance set the tone early. The following track “Baby C’Mon” features more of that Ruler Zig Zag Zig Allah dust, and the album’s first single “Brooklyn Zoo” sounds as timeless as ever with True Master delivering one of the few tracks not helmed by The Abbot.

Rapping in stunted growling grunts and breaking into off-key song at times where it doesn’t even make sense, ODB appeared larger than life. He instantly became an undeniable presence across the album, most certainly propelled by RZA’s guidance on the tracks. The production is decidedly muddy as if it were recorded in a Brooklyn closet; the bass bleeds on even the best-quality speakers and it sounds that this was the intention.

By the time listeners reached “Raw Hide,” there are still dips and turns left in ODB’s rap arsenal:

Tired of sittin’ on my f*ckin ass
N*ggas I know be runnin’ around with mad f*ckin’ cash
Who the f*ck wanna be an emcee
If you can’t get paid to be a f*ckin’ emcee?
I came out my momma p*ssy, I’m on welfare
Twenty-six years old, still on welfare
So I gotta get paid fully
Whether it’s truthfully or untruthfully

In past interviews, Method Man stated that a bulk of the album consisted of old rhymes from RZA and GZA’s rhyme books but he did admit that ODB did know how to write his own verses. But because of his voice, style and natural charisma, it didn’t matter what the source of the lyrics, especially with the level of performance ODB presented across the album.

A remastered version of Return to the 36 Chambers has been released to commemorate the 25 years since its release, along with a mini-documentary from Amazon Music that features words from RZA, Raekwon, his widow, Icelene Jones, and his son Barson “Young Dirty Bastard” Jones. ODB is a sorely missed voice in Hip-Hop and would probably still find a way to bulldoze his way onto the airwaves despite the genre’s many shifts in sounds in the years since his untimely passing.

For now, we’ll hold on tight to the audio memory of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Hopefully, tonight somewhere in ODB’s beloved “Brooklyn Zoo,” a 40 or two will be cracked, safely indoors of course, with the speakers blasting the record in Ason Unique Allah’s honor.

Kanye West Talks Importance of Adding Fashion In Every Aspect of His Career

Celebrity Sightings In Paris - March 2, 2020

Source: Marc Piasecki / Getty

Since starting his journey on the path as rapper, Kanye West has always declared that he would be the “best dressed” and after more than 20 years in the industry, Yeezy’s proclamation has been made a definite.

As previously reported during an exclusive interview with the Wall Street Journal, Kanye West talks his journey navigating through Hip-Hop with his unique fashion sense, and why when he made the decision to jump into fashion completely with the launch of his now iconic Yeezy brand almost seemingly stopped the industry.

”I got ripped,” Kanye West said reflecting on his fashion week debut. “You had to go to school to be a designer. That was the climate back then.”

Although initially everyone wasn’t on board, Yeezy’s fortitude and ingenuity launched his Yeezy label to be a legit high fashion brand.

“I believe that Yeezy is the McDonald’s and the Apple of apparel,” West says. “In order to make the Apple of apparel the next Gap, it has to be a new invention. To invent something that’s so good that you don’t even get credit for it because it’s the norm.”

In addition to talking fashion, West also also revealed his stance on both criminal justice and politics. With his influence, he revealed that it was his passion for criminal justice that inspired wife Kim Kardashian to pursue her passion of law before noting that his goal to add to the victims’ resolve is to employ the former felons at Yeezy sneaker division.

According to the interview, the “Ultra Light Beams” rapper is eager to hire released prisoners to work in apparel manufacturing and he says he has discussed building factories in the U.S. with Adidas, which makes his Yeezy sneakers—a task that Adidas has declined to comment on, in regards to. It actually happening.

In regards to his political stance, West divulged that He does enjoy unusual access to the Trump administration. In mid-July, West chartered a plane to Sweden, planning to jet in and free the musical artist A$ AP Rocky, who had been detained on assault charges earlier that month. Warned that the Swedes wouldn’t welcome the gesture, he canceled the plane and—from his swimming pool in Calabasas—called Jared Kushner at the White House. Prompting a response from Donald Trump who tweeted, “Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$ AP Rocky’s incarceration. I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$ AP Rocky.”

“I’m a black guy with a red [MAGA] hat, can you imagine?” Kanye said. “It reminded me of how I felt as a black guy before I was famous, when I would walk in a restaurant and people would look at you like you were going to steal something. ‘This is your place, Ye, don’t talk about apparel. This is your place, Ye, you’re black, so you’re a Democrat.’ ”

Despite his political views, Kanye has continued to experience success in every genre he enters into, but it’s the lack of “successful businessman“ being added to his long list of titles ad accomplishments that bothers him the most.

”The fact that Yeezy does $ 1.5 billion in revenue per year and the valuation is $ 2.9 billion means that money does not have to enter into the equation,” Kanye said. “Yeezy [is] worth $ 3 billion from nothing, that shows I successfully did something.”

Slim Thug Talks Dealing With Coronavirus After Diagnosis: “I Feel Good”

Slim Thug

Source: @slimthug / Instagram

On Tuesday (Mar 24) after announcing that he had tested positive for COVID-19, Slim Thug took to his Instagram to share the truth about staying safe and how even when you feel like you’re the most protected––you’re still vulnerable.

Since receiving the diagnosis from his personal doctor, Slim Thug outlined the importance of getting tested. During an exclusive interview with Houston’s 97.9 The Box, Thugga expounded on everything leading up to his diagnosis and what finally led to him being tested.

“I got tested on Monday and got my results back on Tuesday,” Slim said. “I think because I had access to my personal doctor and the only way they let me take the test is because I said I had symptoms. You gotta have shortness of breath and your fever gotta be high. If you’re young, they’re just gonna tell you to stay at home and sit this out because they don’t want to waste tests.”

Slim did say he went to the rodeo around the 28th and the barbershop but all of his other travels have been to the grocery store and the house. As far as the rumor goes that celebs are being paid to tell people they have the virus, Slim put that to bed as well.

“On my kids, nobody has paid me to do this. That’s goofy,” he said. “I see a lot of people saying that and it’s dumb. I don’t get it, why would I get paid for this?”

Check out the interview below.

‘Final Fantasy VII Remake’ Developer Explains Why Red XIII Isn’t A Playable Character

Red XIII Will Be A "Guest Character" In 'Final Fantasy VII Remake'

Source: Square Enix / Final Fantasy VII Remake

Barring any delay due to the coronavirus, we are literally just weeks away from the release of Final Fantasy VII Remake. While many are excited about the game’s release, there is one bit of information that dropped has some folks a bit disappointed.

Final Fantasy VII Remake fans were sad to find out that Red XIII or “Nanaki” will not be a playable character when the first playable chapter arrives next month. Instead, he will be a guest character the remake’s developers revealed. FFVII Remake’s co-director Naoki Hamaguchi explained Red XIII not being playable stating:

“We felt that because he only joins the team during the latter stages, having him as a playable ally with full character growth potential would not be a satisfying experience for the player. So we decided to have him join for now, as a guest character instead.”

Bummer.

But it’s not all bad news, in an interview shared on the Square Enix website, Hamaguchi explained that fans can look forward to a unique new section that will involve Red XIII.

“The development team feel the same way that the fans do when it comes to seeing Red XIII as an important character, and we designed his gameplay in a special way to offset him not being playable in battle.” 

“I won’t reveal exactly what that entails, because I want people to enjoy it when they actually play the game, but I will say that Final Fantasy VII Remake has added a new upper floor to the Shinra Building to present a climax that was not in the original.”

“The key to navigating this floor lies in using Red XIII’s unique physical abilities to overcome environmental obstacles. Letting the player experience his heroics in this way is something that I’m confident will please the fans.”

So we’re a bit relieved. Hamaguchi also revealed that there will be endgame content in Final Fantasy VII Remake just like in the original game, so that means plenty of secrets and hidden bosses to fight.

Final Fantasy VII Remake arrives on PlayStation 4 April 10.

Kim Kardashian Addresses Taylor Swift, Cops Coronavirus Pleas Defending Yeezy

Balenciaga : Front Row - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2020/2021

Taylor Swift had a major “I told y’all so” moment this past weekend when the full video of her conversation with Kanye West over “Famous” was leaked. It made Yeezy and his wife look shady, and now Kim Kardashian has broken her silence about the situation.

As previously reported, the video made it evident that Kanye West failed to mention the “I made that b*tch famous” portion of the infamous song.

Swift addressed the clip on Monday on her IG story, saying that it proved that she had been telling the truth (that we hadn’t given her the full story) the entire time, despite Yeezy and Kim calling her a snake regarding the matter.

Well late tonight (March 23), Kardashian addressed Swift via Twitter.

“.@taylorswift13 has chosen to reignite an old exchange – that at this point in time feels very self-serving given the suffering millions of real victims are facing right now,” tweeted Kardashian.

Hang tight, because she kept going, for a while. She added, “I didn’t feel the need to comment a few days ago, and I’m actually really embarrassed and mortified to be doing it right now, but because she continues to speak on it, I feel I’m left without a choice but to respond because she is actually lying.”

Get your popcorn.

Kardashian continued, “To be clear, the only issue I ever had around the situation was that Taylor lied through her publicist who stated that ‘Kanye never called to ask for permission…’ They clearly spoke so I let you all see that. Nobody ever denied the word ‘bitch’ was used without her permission. At the time when they spoke the song had not been fully written yet, but as everyone can see in the video, she manipulated the truth of their actual conversation in her statement when her team said she ‘declined and cautioned him about releasing a song with such a strong misogynistic message.’ The lie was never about the word bitch, It was always whether there was a call or not and the tone of the conversation.

“I never edited the footage (another lie) – I only posted a few clips on Snapchat to make my point and the full video that recently leaked doesn’t change the narrative. To add, Kanye as an artist has every right to document his musical journey and process, just like she recently did through her documentary. Kanye has documented the making of all of his albums for his personal archive, however has never released any of it for public consumption & the call between the two of them would have remained private or would have gone in the trash had she not lied & forced me to defend him. This will be the last time I speak on this because honestly, nobody cares. Sorry to bore you all with this. I know you are all dealing with more serious and important matters.”

A couple of things we’ll note off top. As you’ve read, that’s a lot of commentary for a topic “nobody cares” about. Also, did she really try to bring up the coronavirus as if people can’t quarantine and multitask?

Tell us what you think about Kim’s reasoning and plea copping in the comments. If you care.

Idris Elba’s Wife Tests Positive For Coronavirus

Idris Elba & Sabrina Dhowre

Source: Oprah WInfrey / Twitter

Marriage means for better or for worse. Unfortunately for Idris Elba’s wife, Sabrina Dhowre, she too has been diagnosed with the Coronavirus.

“I’ve been tested… Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive,” Dhowre told Oprah Winfrey during a Facetime video chat on Saturday  (March 21). The interview was part of Winfrey’s new series, Oprah Talks, for Apple TV+

Dhowre was next to her husband, and the couple is actually in New Mexico where they are under quarantine. Her diagnosis was inevitable considering she was with Elba when he revealed his status early last week.

Dhowre added, “I wanted to be with him. That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”

Elba also spoke on COVID-19 being a message that the human race has been kicking the world itself, and it needs to chill.

“Our world has been taking a kicking. We damaged our world, and it’s no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race,” Elba, one of the first celebs to share their diagnosis, told Winfrey. “It’s no surprise that a virus has been created that will slow us down, and ultimately make us think differently about our world, and ourselves. This is almost like the world’s cry-out, like, hey, hey, hey, you’re kicking me. What you’re doing is not good. So [what] any organism would do is try to get rid of an infection, so maybe this is it for the world.”

Prayers up and speedy recoveries to Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre, who so far have shown no symptoms.

New Orleans Bounce Artist Go DJ Black N Mild Dies After Coronavirus Infection

Go DJ Black N Mild

Source: Facebook / Oliver Stokes

While the novel coronavirus spread and COVID-19 situation has been framed as most dire for the elderly, a New Orleans man under the age of 50 has died after being infected. Bounce artist Go DJ Black N Mild passed away on Thursday, one of two deaths related to coronavirus in the city that day.

NOLA.com reports that Go DJ Black N Mild, real name Oliver Stokes Jr., left his day gig at a New Orleans charter school with a fever on March 9 and never returned to work. The publication adds that he shared in his final Facebook post on March 11 which has since been scrubbed from the page said, “pneumonia not the flu” after telling someone on the page that he was being diligent in checking in about his health.

Stokes was a fixture in New Orleans’ music scene and helmed a “Bounce 104.5” mix show that highlighted the city’s homegrown music genre. He also worked as a DJ in Houston for KHOU and he also spun bounce records for New Orleans AM station WBOK.

GO DJ Black N Mild’s stage name was similar to that of producer BlaqNmilD, real name Adam Pigott, who has worked with Magnolia Shorty, Big Freedia, Lil Wayne, Master P, and other New Orleans stars. Pigott posted a video to Facebook Thursday to dispel the rumors that he succumbed to the virus due to the similarity of the stage names.

Stokes’ marital status or list of survivors hasn’t been published by any outlet as of yet. He was just 44 years old.

Rest powerfully in Peace, Go DJ Black N Mild.

‘Life is Beautiful’ resonates again with its message about shielding children

When “Life is Beautiful” was released in the United States in 1998, I wasn’t as wild about the movie as many others were. I appreciated the tone of director/co-writer/star Roberto Benigni’s film about a father shielding his young son from the horrors of a concentration camp, the premise seemed a trifle strained and sanitized.

Rapper C-Rayz Walz Indicted For Rape And Sodomy, Also Stole A Man’s Chain, Allegedly

Raekwon and C-Rayz Walz in Concert at B.B. King's - November 4, 2003

Source: Jim Ren / Getty

Things are not looking good for C-Rayz Walz. The charges have been revealed on his rape case and the details are frightening.

As reported on Wednesday, March 18, the Bronx rapper has been in a holding facility since early December 2019. According to the New York City Department of Corrections he was arrested for felony rape. Upon review of the formal indictment the man born Waleed Shabazz faces a total of 32 charges—including robbery, assault, grand larceny and stalking.

 

The details of the charges are where things get grisly. Per the indictment, on November 26, C-Rayz Walz, born Waleed Shabazz, allegedly kidnapped a woman, raping and sodomizing her. For the 18th count, he is accused of strangling the victim until she lost consciousness. He also is accused of sexually assaulting the unidentified woman via forceful sexual penetration of her vagina and anus.

Other charges include C-Rayz Walz, along with an accomplice, stomping a robbery victim out with his Timberlands, which is noted in the indictment, after stealing his chain.

The documentation states that he will be arraigned on the following counts:

KIDNAPPING IN THE SECOND DEGREE

C-Rayz’s management has not commented on the specifics of his case.

“At this current time, C-Rayz Walz can’t discuss or comment on this allegation” C-Rayz’s manager Rebs K.P. told HipHopDX. “What I can say is that I have known C-Rayz Walz as both his manager and closest friend for six years. I have seen him devote the majority of his time to take care and provide for his son.”

C-Rayz Walz is due back in court on April 15.
