Ice-T is adding festival promoter to his long list of job titles. The OG rapper announced the first ever Art Of Rap Festival that he and SiriusXM are partnering for this summer.
One of the doper things about Mack Wilds’ ascension up the ranks of R&B is how New York City’s Hip-Hop OGs have embraced him. That said, the Staten Island crooner returns with a visual for his “Henny (Remix),” featuring Mobb Deep, French Montana, and Busta Rhymes.
Mobb Deep can comfortably boast their Hip-Hop royalty status. That said, MCs in their position rarely freestyle in the way young, hungry rappers often do, but that spirit was evoked last night on Hot 97’s The Funkmaster Flex Show.
UPDATE: M.O.P. dropped a CDQ version of their latest street heater. Listen after the jump. Two legendary Hip-Hop duos in M.O.P. and Mobb Deep delivered a collaboration we think longtime fans will be happy with. The track is aptly titled “Street Certified.”
Mobb Deep has been going strong for 20 years now and to celebrate, the duo has announced a fan-supported campaign for their upcoming studio album, The Infamous Mobb Deep. Also, Havoc and Prodigy plan to embark on a nationwide tour in March after a slight break in the action.
2014 promises a list of albums, including one from a reunited Mobb Deep called Mobb Deep. Havoc recently spoke about the album during a conversation with The Breakfast Club.
This past weekend, the nominations for the 56th Annual Grammy Awards were rolled out in high-level fashion. Naturally the elephant in the room was the Hip-Hop faceoff between Macklemore/Ryan Lewis and Kendrick Lamar.
Mobb Deep affiliate and QB soldier Big Twinz, formerly Twin Gambino, has one of the grimiest voices to hit the booth. Twinz, and his grimy outlook is present in his zany new video-slash-movie, “Thats Paper” shot directly in the heart of the Queensbridge Houses projects.
Hip-Hop fans were all warm and fuzzy last week after seeing photos of former Roc-A-Fella bosses Jay Z and Damon Dash kicking it at a mutual associate’s birthday party. Although it wasn’t officially billed as the pair reuniting, it did prove that feuds in the rap game don’t last forever.
First impressions are crucial, especially in Hip-Hop. If you drop a dud your first time out, your rap career could be finished as quickly as it started. But not every Hip-Hop act hits a home run their first time up. Some barely made it on base before becoming solid players in the rap world.
