(AllHipHop News) With police brutality being a national news story for over a year and the 2016 presidential campaign dominating coverage, some Hip Hop artists have used their status to address social/political issues. According to Kxng Crooked I, more rappers need to step up and speak on the things taking place in America today.

“I just hate the way that Black rappers are scared to talk about what’s going on in America,” said Crooked. “They’re so tune into syrup, pills, weed, cars, women. If you take those subject matters away from them, they don’t rap about sh*t.”
The Slaughterhouse member also mentioned he is thinking about no longer using the word “n*gga.” In Crooked’s view, non-Black people are over abusing the n-word.
“When I say I don’t think you should say that, they say ‘well, you say it’.’ You Know what? I have to give some kind of credit to that comment,” explained Crooked.

Kristen Wiig, set to start in the all-female-cast ‘Ghostbusters’ reboot, is, in fact, afraid of a ghost.
Today is International Women’s Day, a day globally dedicated to acknowledging the economic, social and political achievements of women across the world. In honor of the occasion, we’re rounding up some of the best interviews we’ve had with women in the arts, all of whom aren’t afraid to tackle the tough issues women face in their daily lives. From education to beauty, success to authenticity, popular perceptions of body hair to the epidemic of catcalling, these female artists don’t veer away from injustice; instead, they face obstacles head on.
Behold, 12 beautiful quotes from women in the arts:
On the importance of education:
” It’s not enough to have a few women’s studies courses. Why is it more important to study Paul Revere’s midnight ride than it is Susan B. Anthony’s 50-year effort to transform the face of America for women? When you’re in school, most of the events you study are about men. Men’s activities lauded and repeated over and over. What about us? What about commemorating the decades-long struggle for suffrage? Why don’t we hear those stories over and over and over again. It’s almost inconceivable for men to understand what it would be like to live without that constant valorization.”
“There are always those who want to tell women that their experiences are not valid or not important whenever they speak up. For me, as a black woman, this is particularly true. Wanting the basic right of feeling comfortable and safe and not sexualized as I walk out of my house is very much worth prioritizing.” -artist Tatyana Fazlalizadeh (read more here)
On success in a contemporary world:
“Success is now lined up with the realm of glamour, money and accoutrement which in essence have nothing to do with an originating vision but they do have to do with establishing recognition in commercial culture. I think women artists have a chance to deflect that and break that grip apart.” -performance artist Carolee Schneemann (read more here)
On finding your authentic self:
“I came of age before women’s lib, and wanted to buck the stereotypes of a culture that branded me a pretty girl, thin enough to be a fashion model and not much more. Armed with my camera and tripod, I found a way to define myself on my own terms in the most authentic way I could.” -photographer Lucy Hilmer (read more here)
On our culture’s preoccupation with female body hair:
“I entered making this work with a sense of fascination that hair is both beautiful and repulsive in our culture. The fragile influence of context is its only distinction. We see long hair on a woman as a symbol of beauty and femininity, but as soon as the hair is cut or removed the body, we think of it as unsanitary and strange. Likewise, we seem to never have enough hair in the places we want it, and too much hair in the places that we don’t want it to be!” -photographer Rebecca Drolen (read more here)
On definitions of beauty:
“The power to show real women, honest, present, complex and complete. Individuals, radiant in their own right. Not stripped of their personhood, or manipulated for a fantasy or metaphor. I like to think the power of lifting the veil from individuals helps to challenge societies darker fetishes and beliefs, perhaps shatter notions of bigotry and stereotypes… One of my greatest joys is working with women who do not usually dwell in this side of their beauty and yet in the work recognize themselves completely, as they are and magnificent.” -painter Victoria Selbach (read more here)
On the realities of trans women:
“[My] series was inspired by my love for the trans women I have met online and my sympathy with the struggles they have being seen as women and people… Trans women are everywhere, but until recently have been marginalized by the invisibility enforced by the intensification of misogynist violence toward them. It is up to cisnormative society to stop questioning their femininity, embrace their beauty, and counter the disadvantages they have just by being themselves.” -artist Janet Bruesselbach (read more here)
On gun control laws:
“My hope is that the young men in the 8th Ward and the surrounding neighborhoods are inspired to trade killing for creativity. Through the relationships they’ve developed they decide they can move past the paradigm of gangsters and guns. Healing in the neighborhood, by the neighborhood.” -artist and curator Kirsha Kaechele (read more here)
On the radical nature of the selfie:
“Yes, of course they have the capability of being radical or feminist. Our generation knows the image of the self better then any other generation before, because of our access to cameras, media and sharing. And also, the language of the image is no longer in the hands of specialists. We are all experts in reading images and we know how to control and manipulate the viewer through images.” – artist Melanie Bonajo (read more here)
On feminism’s potential for future change:
“The Future Feminist point of view has increasingly leaned not towards striving for equal status within a male construct or a male society, but rather to invite a redesign of society based on the principles of a feminine archetype in order to create the hope of a sustainable future for us all.” -The Future Feminists (read more here)
On inclusion in the art world:
“I am aware of the fact that in the bigger scheme of things in the art and literary worlds there are still a lot of gaps as far as diversity and representation goes. That is part of my personal inspiration to make art and tell stories and have more representation for women and people of color.” -comic artist Yumi Sakugawa (read more here)
As Eminem puts out "Not Afraid," a documentary on the fortunes of his record label, we select five crucial musical accounts from across musical genres. Despite its similarity to the two-part Tarantino action film "Kill Bill," this Bill Withers documentary can actually trace its title to the soul and R&B singer-songwriter's second album from 1972. Documenting G-funk guru Calvin Broadus Jr.'s rejection of stage name Snoop Dogg in favor of Snoop Lion at the time of his 2012 Rastafari conversion, and released alongside an album of the same name. Martin Scorsese, world famous director of "Goodfellas" and "Gangs of New York," had been known as a rockumentarian since since 1978 reference "The Last Waltz." This Rolling Stones doc took footage from a specially altered 2006 concert tour and interpolated it with highly contextual footage chosen from earlier in the band's 40 year career.

When Bethany Townsend finally grew sick and tired of hiding her colostomy bags, she posed for a photo in a sleek black bikini and shared the image on Facebook, not expecting much fanfare.
More than 195,000 likes and hundreds of votes of confidence later, the 23-year-old has shed any insecurities she once had and hopes she can help other people living with her condition to do the same.
Townsend, of Worcester, England, has certainly endured hardships since she was 3 and first developed Crohn’s disease, a condition that causes chronic inflammation involving any location of the gastrointestinal tract, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
She had multiple surgeries throughout the years, was nourished through a feeding tube for four years and took a range of medicines daily, according to her Facebook post. Then, in 2010, her bowels burst. She had a portion of her intestines removed and was fitted for two colostomy bags, through which her stool collects.
While Townsend was relieved to have survived the ordeal, the makeup artist was devastated about having to rely on the colostomy bags, she told the Daily Mail. She also decided to shelve her modeling career as a result.
Even after she married her supportive husband Ian, 33, she still felt reluctant to show off her figure.
But that all changed last Christmas when the couple traveled to Mexico and Townsend mustered the courage to take a picture of herself lying out in the sun in a revealing bikini, colostomy bags and all, she wrote on Facebook.
Six months later, Townsend sent the image to Crohn’s and Colitis UK, a nonprofit that works to improve the quality of life for people with irritable bowl disease (IBD), which mostly includes people with Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis.
The group was thrilled with the photo and posted it to its Facebook page. The image has gone viral, inspiring people with and without Crohn’s to support Townsend’s bravery and inspiring message.
“Isn’t it amazing that we can have most of our guts removed and still show more ‘guts’ than everyone else combined xo,” one Facebook commenter wrote.
Townsend was shocked by the incredible feedback she received, an overwhelming reaction that has moved her to pick up modeling again and to keep advocating as much as possible for people with Crohn’s disease.
“If I can inspire or help other people in my position to feel a little more comfortable in their own skin,” she told the Daily Mail, “then I’m really happy.”
When it comes to the title of “most wedding-friendly animal,” dogs pretty much have it on lockdown. They happily sport wedding attire, graciously carry out ring bearer duties and are all-around awesome at livening up the party (with only a few notable exceptions).
Cats, however, are less keen on the whole wedding thing. Below, we present 11 pieces of photographic evidence of just that:
A Vine can tell you a lot in six seconds. Like just how much Quincy the dog, here, loves road trips.
While we’re equally excited for Quincy and Patrick’s getaway, we should note that much like how people wear seat belts for safety, all animals should be harnessed in a similar way. Just sayin’.
