Willy Northpole wants to show yâ€™all how they get it cracking in Arizona. Not for nothing but I like this dude. He might actually be about something. Plus heâ€™s a really nice guy, unlike Titti Boy. Check out the video below.
January 2008 Archives
After searching the Internet all day I couldn't find anything worth talking about. Then it hit me. I remember an industry insider sent me an email on why sh*t-hop sucks. So I thought I'd share it with you.
If you've come here for hip-hop information today, you might as well come back later. I'm on a mission with this blog post.
Anyone who lives in Atlanta and is a part of the "scene" knows of Janelle Monae. To the talentless she is consider kooky or weird. To me she's a the female version of Prince. Like him she is way ahead of her time. But after a few career missteps with Big Boi's Purple Ribbon company. It appears she's jumped ship and has a new place to call home...
I got a chance to check in on one of Atlanta's up and coming rap stars, Shawty Lo. Check out the video below.
I got some events for the grown and sexy people out there. Oh and I also got something for the kids too. Check it out.
What's this? Ludacris is getting some negative press? I'm shocked, yet intrigued all at the same time.
Ok! So we all know that the Georgia public school systems are extremely lacking compared to other states. But what's with this new idea of paying struggling students to get tutored in hopes of boosting grades? Check the video below.
See..I aint the only writer to hate on Bow Wow. Check out what XXL has to say about the court jester of hip-hop.
Jermaine Dupri is never one to shy away from the camera and that's why I gotta a lot of luv for pint sized mogul. Jermaine is probably one of the biggest celebrities to embrace the online media craze by way of youtube and blogs. Check out his new video below.
While the industry as a whole is keeping a relatively low profile, Iâ€™m starting to seriously crave for some new music from the â€œKing of The Southâ€. Am I alone?
Though Luda keeps a very low profile[other rappers should follow his lead] he still seems to make BIG moves in Atlanta. And now he's doing it with a new artist, and new hot spot.
Dem Franchize Boyz are back with a new single called â€œTalking Out The Side Of Ya Neckâ€. Theyâ€™ve also got a new video. Check it out below. Is it poppin or floppin?
Do y'all remember when Lil Kim first stepped on the scene and changed the female rap game? Well I wonder...can we get that again? Now that she's gone solo, can Diamond be that girl to deliver the goods?
A new track from Rocko Da Don has leaked online. I know a lot of people are looking at this dude with a crooked eye trying to figure out if heâ€™s the truth or just the black Kevin Federline. Take a listen to the track below and post what you feel.
Seeing thats its Martin Luther King's Birthday day and all I figured I'd hand over the blog to a good dude, Killer Mike, for the day. Anybody who's a true fan of hip-hop should know what Killer is all about. And if you don't, then why don't you take the time to find out right now. Take it away homie..
It's that time again people. If you're hungry and trying to make 2008 prosperous you need to check out Rovella's Williams "Almost Famous"...
Whether you like to admit it or not Soulja Boy is taking the ringtone rapper to new heights. But is he selling more then 50 cent?
Did anyone see Bow Wow on Ugly Betty last week? I guess it's time for Bow Wow to start looking at different avenues to make money. Check out his appearance below.
Sigh - Chingy, Chingy, Chingy!
I'm really starting to like Yung Joc. The man is really taking care of his community. Maybe he's always been that way and I just never paid attention. You know the scandal of that medallion had me distracted for a moment. But check out Joc putting his hands, and more importantly his wallet in the community. There's just one small problem...
Everybody complains about how â€œthe manâ€ is always out to get him or her. Well the city of Atlanta wants to hear from the hip-hop community about a fashion fad thatâ€™s come under fire.
I can't say that I am surprised by the information that I am about to share with you. It looks like T.I. is struggling a little bit financially every since he's been on house arrest. From what I'm hearing he's starting to sell off assets to stay afloat.
Shawty Lo has been creating a strong buzz for himself recently with his infectious new track called "Dey Know". I've had the pleasure of meeting the D4L member once before, and I have a planned sit down with him very soon. But in the meantime why don't you check out his new video. Is it poppin or floppin'.
Anyone who lives in Atlanta knows that V103's Elle Duncan is one of the nicest radio personalities on air. So I decided that I wanted to know more about her. But more importantly I wanted you all to know more about the woman behind the always upbeat and super articulate voice. Plus, I wanted to give her a chance to clear up those pesky rumors that she's getting a pink slip. Check out my sit down with her below.
Soulja Boy has dropped another video from his certified gold album Souljaboytellem.com. Check it out below. Is it poppin or floppin?
I cant tell you how many emails I get from people who want me to put their music on SOHH Atlanta in hopes that it will garner the attention of an industry executive. Well it seems that Big Block wants to feed the hungry with his new solo CD. And if you got skills hes looking for you. Watch the exclusive video below.
We all know that Chingy's new album is struggling to find a respectable spot on Billboard so it looks like Ludacris is coming on board with his new single, Gimme That. I got some pictures from the set below.
Since Atlanta still remains to be a ghost town as far as the scene is concerned I thought I'd give my fellas some tips regarding a popular topic..the single mama's out there. I see Fellas getting caught up too many times with women and the baby daddy drama. So get your pen and paper out and take notes. Because these examples you're about to read should be taken as a warning..
It looks like T.I. has received a little break in his impending illegal gun charges caseâ€¦
I promised myself that I wouldn't do anymore Bow Wow posts in the New Year. I mean at this point who the hell cares? But a loyal reader sent me over a pretty funny parody post of Bow Wow seeking advice so I thought I'd share it with you guys.
Earlier today Joc cleared the air about what really happened in Cleveland. And now he's clearing the air about a much more serious rumor regarding one of the most popular rappers in the world.
I got the chance to catch up with one of the hardest working rappers in the game today. As Iâ€™m sure everybody knows by now, last year wasnâ€™t one of the best for Yung Joc both personally and professionally. But in 2008 the embattled rapper is looking onward to shake the hip-hop game up. But not before sharing with me what really happened at Clevelandâ€™s International Airport. As well as those persistent rumors that he and Block Entertainment allegedly set T.I. up. Check out my ultra-exclusive chat with the Yung rapper below.
First it was Small World from North Carolina. And now we got Charlamagne, Venom Vendetta, Lil Ru, Princess [Mrs. Thick Chick], and Diamond [Mrs. 31 Flavors] all banning together to putting the shine on South Carolina. Check out the exclusive track below.
It looks like DTP ain't playing in the new year. Their new artist, Small World has just dropped a new video called "Mr. Magnificent". Check it out below. Is it poppin or floppin?
Lil' Kim and Gucci Mane performed at Dreamz recently in Decatur. And though I couldnâ€™t make it out I just had to comment on this picture. If you all can recall I did a post last month on Gucci Maneâ€™s new album cover. I implored for someone who is in his camp to get him a gym membership because as a dedicated ambassador of physical fitness I was very disturbed at what I saw.
It's a brand new year and while most in the business are still on holiday the people over at Block Entertainment are hard at work attempting to churn out them hits. But, the H.N.I.C. himself took some time out of his busy schedule to talk to yours truly about these persistent rumors we keep hearing that he and his artists are in jeopardy over at Atlantic. Check it out below.
Do you all remember when I told you I interviewed Bun B on the red carpet at the Dirty Awards? Well I got that video for you to view below.
In kicking off the New Year, I think it's time I gave someone some praise for their accomplishments in 07.
