Watch Dame Dash Pull Up on Lee Daniels To Demand the $2M He’s Owed (Video)

Damon Dash wants his money, and he’s willing to buy tickets to a Diana Ross concert just to get in the same room with Lee Daniels and talk it out. Sharing the video in social media, Dash purchased tickets to a recent Diana Ross concert just so he could confront Lee Daniels, also in attendance, over the $2 million loan he extended to Daniels so that he could make the movies. The audio is hard to decipher since Ross is performing in the background but thankfully there are subtitles. On an unrelated note, it’s pretty funny Dianna Ross is talking about her ankle and wants the audience to sing, “Reach Out and Touch.” Dame looked…

How Cardi B & Offset are a Love Alternative in the Trump Era

On October 27th, Migos frontman Offset popped the golden question to the current queen of the Hip Hop charts — stripper turned reality star turned rapper — Cardi B. And of course, she said, “Yes.” Offset and his squad have had a great year, despite the bruhaha with DJ Akademics, while Cardi’s Bodak Yellow instantly made her a hot commodity in 2017. This weekend, at Power 99’s Powerhouse concert in Philadelphia, the two officially joined forces and the Hip Hop world has been gushing ever since. ( I believe he proposed because she’s pregnant. Stay tuned…) Having been married for 15 years myself, I wish them all his success and blessings in the world. What…

Marshall Mathers for Mayor? Maybe.

When Marshall Mathers (also known as Eminem) decided to take a stand against the tyranny of Mr. Donald Trump by performing a razor sharp acapella battle rap at this year’s BET Hip Hop Awards, he did three things. The first thing that he did was become the unofficial leader of the Hip Hop revolt against Donald Trump. Other rappers have dropped anti-Donald Trump songs as well, but clearly, none rose to the notoriety of Eminem’s staccato hot take on the president’s performance. The song that immediately comes to mind is Compton rapper YG’s “FDT.” While that song did make noise on the west coast and beyond, it’s controversy was limited because it’s exposure was limited….

“You Know You’re A Smartphone Addict If”

Nomophobia isn’t the fear of not getting any more of something. It’s the scientific term for the fear of not having your smartphone. Sufferers of nomophobia are easy to spot because they appear unable to free their hand from their mobile device. According to scientists and experts, mankind is currently experiencing a mass volume mobile device addiction crisis. (Global warming, however, is still a myth.) For a hundred logical reasons, smartphones have become America’s third hand. (Or fourth leg.) Men, women, privileged children, and some really fortunate animals have lent so much of their souls to their digital companions that it seems we can literally no longer live without them. I’ve no data on the…

Opinion: Tell Jay-Z To Keep His “Old Man Raps”

Change is good, evolution is necessary. However not all things need reassignment. Some stuff in life is just fine the way it is. About a month ago, everybody’s favorite drug dealing rapper, Jay-Z, released his 4:44 album. Though the album was scrutinized and highly criticized by the female listeners, for a lot of different reasons, it is still regarded as a milestone in rap music. To most people, it marked Jay-Z’s attempt at ushering in a more mature attitude towards the music. And let’s be honest; what Jay-Z does we all follow. Overall, the album was Shawn Carter’s admission of having flaws and making his way through life as a man. 75% of Hiphopolis praised…

Why Mumble Rap Really Isn’t That Bad (Video)

Without giving specifics, I am probably just as old or a little bit older than most of you. I can remember telephones with chords, smoking sections in restaurants, cars with tape decks, and life before cable television and the glorious internet. And I’ve been a part of Hip Hop for as long as Hip Hop has been Hip Hop, if that makes any sense. *Insert old man emoji* I’ve digested tons of music, mostly rap, over my lifetime. And one thing that I’ve always heralded as an important aspect of any musical genre is its lyricism. Seriously. What’s the point of having a song if the words don’t mean anything? Well, that’s what I used…
