All Month Long For Black Music Month Im posting the origins of Hip Hop's most popular songs. Hip Hop created the art of sampling basically taking something old and making it new. A lot of popular music of all genres includes sampling which originated with Hip Hop...
Last week we reported a Mobb Deep 20th Anniversary Tour. I found it odd that the Queens natives planned to due shows up and down the west coast, but neglected to book any dates in NY. Dipset seems to be doing it the right way.
The Baauer smash “Harlem Shake” has been trending heavy in social media. Hip hoppers like Azealia Banks and Pitbull have jumped on remixing the track in recent weeks. Now, Harlem’s own Jim Jones joined the party.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the Diplomats’ camp. Their reunion album has been in talks for a while but nothing new has manifested. So what gives? Are the Harlem rappers on bad terms? Not according to Jim Jones.
Azealia Banks is not letting her Twitter spat with Jim Jones died down. The ’212′ rapper is now throwing lyrical shots at him on her dis track ‘Succubi.’ The song was release just days after the two Harlem rappers were arguing over the definition of the word “vamp.”
