    Reason First: Should Lil' Durk Start Snitching?

    Reason First: Should Lil' Durk Start Snitching?

    Rather than shooting videos, Durk has allegedly been seen shooting in a video with a firearm. Among the other charges including criminal intent to commit murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, Lil’ Durk may see football numbers if tried and convicted of these alleged crimes. Lil’ Durk maintains his innocence throughout this whole ordeal. The Chicago rapper understands that the judge has discovered probable cause in Lil’ Durk’s case and has denied bond. There is that video floating around that illustrates Durk allegedly firing the weapon in question.

    Joyner Lucas: 'ADHD'

    Joyner Lucas: 'ADHD'

    Joyner Lucas has been creating some buzz for his upcoming ADHD album, which doesn’t have a release date just yet. He announced the upcoming album in late 2018, since then we’ve seen the release of three singles “I Love,” “Devil’s Work” and “Isis.” Right off the bat, I wanna say that 9/10 I don’t really research albums before they drop. This is because I’m usually not interested in what the artist is trying to do with an album. I like to listen to it first and then look at what they say they were trying to do to see if they were successful. It's this idea of the realized intention. I only mention it because if Joyner did any interviews about any of the things I’m going to discuss, I wouldn’t have seen them. But anyway.

    'Igor' - The Greatest Creation Tyler Has Ever Made

    Disclaimer; I am not a critic. I am just a guy who loves music and wants to talk about it. My opinions are my own. I don't normally believe in quantifying art, but I want to open a discussion and it makes it easier to do so if I put a couple numbers in this. If you disagree with me, please pull up. I want the smoke.

    Reason First: Is Kodak Black Too Much for Hip Hop?

    Reason First: Is Kodak Black Too Much for Hip Hop?

    Though he has not been charged with a March 7 shooting in his hometown of Pompano Beach, Florida, rapper Kodak Black has certainly garnered negative attention for his alleged wicked ways. With fingerprints on an illicit firearm attached to the “ZEZE” rap artist, it seems as if the young man just can’t get right. Kodak Black has attracted bad press like a magnet draws iron filings.

    Reason First: Is 50 Cent Right for Defending Eminem Against Lord Jamar?

    Reason First: Is 50 Cent Right for Defending Eminem Against Lord Jamar?

    Ultimate troll, 50 Cent bandied words at Lord Jamar over the latter legendary rapper's comments concerning Eminem. While some may call it “caping” for the white man, there is good cause that 50 engaged in a verbal sparring session on Instagram. 50 Cent signed an unprecedented at the time, one million dollar contract as a joint venture between Eminem’s Shady Records and Dr. Dre’s Aftermath Entertainment. Through years of falling out with the rapper Game, to Young Buck, and splitting ties with Lloyd Banks, 50 Cent and Eminem have remained tight. Together, the two men have earned the respect of most figures within the hip hop universe. That is, of course, except for Lord Jamar. He has gone on the record saying that black people don’t listen to Eminem’s music. But is this true? In the gym, as Lord Jamar has indicated, Eminem is not blasted through earbuds. What about Eminem’s Oscar-winning ode to overcoming adversity “Lose Yourself”? Does Jamar not know that African Americans get pumped up to the Recovery rapper? Is this true? On the excursion to the club, are black people not gearing up for a good night buy listening to “Greatest” while wood grain grippin? Don’t clubs still vibrate with the sound of “Shake That,” Eminem’s song with the late Nate Dogg? 50 Cent is a master at challenging anyone who crosses him or his values. He goes on Instagram saying that Lord Jamar was already deceased and that Lord Jamar is no “Brand Puba” anyway. 50 Cent has spit venomous bars on tracks but his words on social media have just as much toxicity.
