rick-ross-birdman

Rick Ross has had a long standing beef with Birdman over the debt owed to Lil Wayne for the last few years. Birdman recently aired out his frustration with everyone being his business about his situation with Lil Wayne. Rick Ross aired Birdman out on Instagram saying he needs to take out a loan to pay Lil Wayne because he’s owed him for over 5 years already. The Cash Money boss threatened murder on anyone who tried to stir things up between him and Lil Wayne.

Rick Ross said

“Pay that man’s money,”

“It just ran across my mind. And I said, ‘damn, I wonder if Birdman paid that man yet?’ Pay that man.” He continues, “Pay that man. Man, that man sold a million his first week. God damn, what a nigga gotta do to get his money? What that man gotta do for you to pay him? Sell 10 million in the first two days? Then you’ll pay that man? God damn… Man, let you sweet niggas ride around clean for a long time, man. Gon’ get a loan and pay that man. You know what I don’t like really the most about this shit is the fact that y’all two fightin’ each other instead of y’all two fighting the white people. You switched out on him.”

Says Rick Ross

“So, take all your plastic out your mouth, erase all the tattoos on your face. What you can’t do is give them young soldiers back that time they gave you. That’s it.”

Ross says.

Fredo Santana’s recent health scare has him thinking about the future. And his immediate future could include a stint in a drug rehabilitation program.

As previously reported, earlier this week, the Chicago rapper was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with liver and kidney failure. Fredo self reported his issues on Instagram, posting a video from his hospital bed. “Been in here since Friday doctor say a nigga had kidney failure an liver failure,” he wrote in the caption. He also notified fans that his collab project with Chief Keef, Turbo Bandana, would not be coming out as scheduled due to his health issues. “Thanks for everyone who prayed for a nigga I wouldn’t wish this on my worse enemy,” he added.

[MUSIC NEWS] Drumma Boy Launches House of Fresh Boutique in Atlanta

drumma-boy-2jpg-ca9d0b641208d541

Drumma Boy is stepping even further into the fashion world and has opened his own clothing store.

The newly minted boutique, House of Fresh, opened its doors on Oct. 7 and is located in northwest Atlanta. Marketed as a “streetwear boutique with a selection of top fashion brand-names & sneakers for men, women & kids,” the store seems to have been a brainchild of the producer for while. Drumma Boy has his own clothing line called Fresh Phamily and has worked closely in the fashion industry in the past.

His fashion sense all goes back to his roots. “Growing up in South Memphis, I was surrounded by older clean fashionable styles,” the Tennessee native recently said. “My mom would have big brunches on Saturday, and I would wake up and Issac Hayes would be in the living room. I also had an older brother who already had the latest trends and brands so it motivated me at a young age to always be ‘fresh.’ Started getting into a lot of trouble in South Memphis and ended up moving to the suburbs… I would always relate to the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. Known for being funny, having the latest trends and all the pretty girls. I always wanted to have my own clothing line like Jay Z, Russell Simmons, Diddy, etc. and once I became a celebrity, I used my name as an opportunity to start being sponsored by some of my idols.”

He further expounded on his expansion into the clothing market. “I picked up a sponsorship from Diddy himself rocking Sean Jean three-piece suits,” he added. “I also connected with Tony Shellman doing branding for Parrish by 24. I began linking up with Travis Barker repping Famous Stripes, connecting with Drama doing continuous work with Young & Reckless, and making major moves with Popular Demand and Creative Recreation shoes.”

All this only hyped him up even more to finally do his own thing. “After a while I started to feel like I’m bigger than a walking billboard, or a free clothing rack, and began presenting ideas for clothing companies that eventually landed me my own clothing line,” he continued. “Throughout the process of learning the business and running my own setup at tradeshows across the U.S, I gained relationships domestically (and internationally) that allowed me to successfully move into the retail world as well. It feels great being able to touch people with taste and fashion as I’ve done with music.”

House of Fresh is located at 1170 Howell Mill Rd. NW Atlanta, GA 30318.

[FEATURE] David Banner: 601 comes to the 614 by DJ Layne Luv

David Banner Lecture Ohio

Sept 27th 2017, Jackson Mississippi rapper David Banner calls up 106.7fm The Beat in Columbus Ohio and receives some disturbing news. He was told that a rumor circulating the city was that he would more than likely not show up to the lecture event Speak Your Truth Summit. Shortly after the interview Mr. Banner went right to Instagram to confirm that he indeed was coming to our city and that he was proud to come to our town. Within that one minute video, you saw integrity, compassion and a deep rooted southern pride to always keep your word no matter what it costs. All qualities of being a real man.

If you have grown with David Banner like I have since the hit song Like A Pimp ft Lil Flip or major production credit on T.I.’s monumental album Trap Muzik (2003), then you know that the 2017 David Banner is not the same one we know from 2003. Of course David Banner always told well rounded stories, such as Cadillacs on 22’s referencing the death of Emmett Till and other misfortunes in his home state, but after 2006, we started to see a change and conviction in his approach to music. Maybe it was those Katrina waters of 2005 that destroyed his beloved state that brought about the enlightenment. Go back in time and remember how pissed he was when the world witnessed with it’s own eyes that the President of the United States George W. Bush didn’t give a damn about the poor and disfranchised in Florida, Mississippi, Texas and of course the city hit the worst New Orleans. This was his family that was suffering and he was the only voice fit to sound the alarm in the time period to speak about his state of emergency. (pun intended)

The Great Malcolm X said in his autobiography…once the light is turned on inside you cannot turn it off. Well Mr. Banner’s light continues to shine brighter and brighter as he brings awareness to the plight of being Black In America especially in the southern states. When Straight Official caught up with Banner…I had a lot on my mind. I was extremely perplexed. I witnessed and reposted the murder of Patrick Harmon of Salt Lake City Utah on my Uptown Weekly Instagram page. Not to mention being close to the case of Timothy Davis in Columbus Ohio. In that particular situation, by all means, we are grateful that young man is still alive. However, with strain and intensity in my eyes, I told Mr. Banner…”Sir, there’s a lot of people that don’t know….but I know you know….Please shed some light on how long we have to endure these horrendous acts in front of our face as we standby appearing to be helpless.”

Understand I come to piss people off and make them uncomfortable. Because pain brings about attention quickly. Listen, a warrant, smoking weed, running, none of that is justifiable in killing someone. I’m not just talking about black people. Whatever color they are, if they are not directly posing a threat to a police officer and they’re just running away, my friend there is no reason for anyone to get shot. See, white people have gotten black people to think like them, so when we see someone jammed up by the police, the first thing we think in the back of our mind is ..damn what that n***a do? Now unless that man (Harmon) was wanted for murder, then shooting him doesn’t make any sense. You see, we also have to stop echoing their bullshit media commentary, just like in the Kaepernick situation. They wanna say kneeling is a disrespect to our troops. Well, the last time I checked, America treats it’s troops like shit. So as I’ve said on many stages, the only way to get “the power’s” attention is either by the loss of money or the loss of life.”

I spoke with David Banner for about 15 more minutes, and then it was time for him to get whisked away to the stage for his lecture. As he stood before the crowd he commanded everyone to turn off their cell phones from going live at his show. His reasoning is that he feels African Americans already give away too much for free. “We have to start getting paid for our talents and gifts” he states. He also said in front a semi-light audience “If folks wanted the experience, they should have brought their ass to the show.”

He then passed out his CD #Godbox to the entire audience, and then had enough time to play snippets from two songs for the appreciative crowd. He proceeded to break down why conscious music may not sell the way mainstream music does. “One reason muh fuchas may not buy ya shit is cuz it ain’t jammin. Just because your music has a message in it doesn’t mean it should suck.” As he states that Godbox is one of the most important albums to hip hop in the history of it, only the keepers of this culture and art form can co-sign that prediction. And just as we saw of 4:44, #Godbox did not have the nightclubs in mind this go round, but instead another project to wake up the minds.

After the show, David Banner showed true southern hospitality and shook as many hands and took as many pictures as he could with those that had to wait patiently almost two hours for the rapper/producer to take the stage. And he also gave many kudos to the organizer of the event Ms. Tomiqua Perry for her hard work and determination. 

Lastly at David Banner’s request he wanted me to quote him saying “This is the first time I’m saying this to Black America on your article brother. Don’t be afraid, they are killing us anyway so continue to stand and speak out against injustice. They’ll kill you for obeying the law, (Philando Castile) so don’t be afraid. We have been so conditioned to be afraid of white people. I’ll say this for the first time too, most black people praise white people more than they’re own religion. They’ll cheat on their wife, kill another brother, lie, steal, do everything that bible told them not to do, but will not take a stand against wrong-doing white folks. Use that, don’t take that out, quote quote mutha fucha hahahaha. Because we have to address our conditioned mentality for change to  happen as well.”

Thank you Mr. Banner for coming to our city and opening up the minds to Speak Their Truth. And be sure to pick up #GodBox on all streaming outlets (iTunes Tidal, Spotify etc)

[MUSIC NEWS] Tory Lanez Denies He Was Jumped During Performance at York University

tory-lanez-performance-2016-a-billboard-1548

Tory Lanez was in the midst of a performance at York University earlier this week when he appeared to be swallowed by a crowd of either some overzealous fans or some folks trying to do him some serious harm. The Shade Room understandably went with the latter theory, posting two videos of Lanez seemingly getting lost in the chaos before throwing a few punches at an unnamed man.

Replying to the site’s Instagram page featuring video from his concert, Lanez, who’s got a new album on the way, explains that he’s comfortable with his fans and that they’ve never once attacked him in all his years of performing. “I never got jumped,” he wrote in the comments section for the post. “My fans would never group up and try to fight me  . I crowd surf every night with no security ..if they were gunna jump me I’d be jumped at this point .”

Now, there are two videos that seem to point toward the scene of the concert being a raucous one, and there are a lot of people in super-close proximity to Lanez as he’s walking either toward the center of a crowd or back to the stage. Specifically, there’s a man in a red hoodie screaming some obscenities at someone—maybe even Lanez.

In the second video, we begin to see where Lanez might have been attacked. In that clip, we see the rapper throwing punches at someone in the crowd. He doesn’t appear to be taking any hits, though.
