According to a tweet from Grap Luva and others, Stud Doogie has reportedly passed away and some have chimed in with thoughts.

The Nation of Gods and Earths developed a connection with Hip-Hop culture that stretches far beyond the sharing of lingo.

Brand Nubian member and Hip-Hop veteran Lord Jamar is no stranger to controversy, so his latest statement regarding women in Hip-Hop doesn’t come as a surprise.

Brand Nubian remains one of Hip-Hop’s most influential and controversial groups of all time. The New Rochelle MCs—Lord Jamar, Sadat X and sometimes Grand Puba—get the profile treatment in the next episode of TV ONE’s Unsung.

Lord Jamar has been in the news of late for a series of controversial statements, including saying that white rap acts are not part of Hip-Hop’s true lineage. Fellow veteran rapper Buckshot of Black Moon fame challenged Lord Jamar’s assertion that Hip-Hop is a strictly Black art form.

Yes; you read that right. Omar Epps was spotted wearing a skirt on The View and naturally Lord Jamar was none too pleased. Comedian Marlon Wayans stepped up for his BFF and a new Twitter beef was born.

Pete Rock and CL Smooth let the horns blow on their classic track “T.R.O.Y.” at New York City’s Central Park Sunday, July 28. Their performance was one of the highlights during Rock Steady’s 36 Anniversary concert, which banded together a list of notable veteran MCs.

Lord Jamar, a member of pioneering rap group Brand Nubian, turned heads after aiming hom0phobic words in the direction Kanye West via Twitter a week ago. The rap veteran makes a questionable move and ramps up the anti-gay sentiment with the release of a new diss track titled “Lift Up Your Skirt.” 

Two of Hip-Hops most lyrical, and often underrated MCs Sadat X and Pharoahe Monche join forces on the lead single from X’s forthcoming project, Love, Hell Or Right. “This is Our Thing” has a soulful, but triumphant feel that fits both MCs’ styles. Feel free to thank producer Grant Park for that.

The Nation Of Gods & Earths remember their Founder with “Show & Prove” celebration. 41 years after Allah, The Father’s assassination, his nation still ‘Shows and Proves’! After amassing major clout in the streets of New York throughout the Black Power-era of the turbulent ‘60s – Allah, The Father – was gunned down during the […]
