Prodigy of Mobb Deep Passes Away

As you might know by now, we lost a true legend today. Prodigy, the H.N.I.C and 1/2 of The Infamous Mobb Deep, has passed away in Las Vegas at the young age of 42. The rap icon P is responsible for some of the illest bars ever recorded during the peak of New York City’s mid-90’s boom-bap dominance and has influenced more MCs and fans that we could possibly imagine. P’s cause of death is sickle-cell anemia related with a statement from his publicist, as he had been dealing with severe complications from his illness over the last several days.

It is with extreme sadness and disbelief that we confirm the death of our dear friend Albert Johnson, better known to millions of fans as Prodigy of legendary NY rap duo Mobb Deep. Prodigy was hospitalized a few days ago in Vegas after a Mobb Deep performance for complications caused by a sickle cell anemia crisis. As most of his fans know, Prodigy battled the disease since birth. The exact causes of death have yet to be determined. We would like to thank everyone for respecting the family’s privacy at this time. Read More…

4:44 confirmed as Jay Z’s New Album (News)

For a couple of weeks now, fans and the entire media industry have been trying to decipher those mysterious 4:44 ads that started popping up all over major cities and in a mysterious TV spot that aired during the NBA Finals. The commercial featured Mahershala Ali and seemed to indicate that the project was a film with a boxing theme, plus it also credited Danny Glover and Lupita Nyong’o as co-stars.

Now, a new version of the trailer has surfaced that confirms 4:44 as the title of the next Jay Z album and teases a new song called “Adnis,” which as any Jay stan knows, is the name of Jay’s once estranged father Adnis Reeves. The new album will be out June 30th and will be exclusive to TIDAL and Sprint customers, and that sucks for people like me who let their TIDAL subscription lapse.

Watch Obama Induct Jay Z Into the Songwriters Hall of Fame

Last night, Jay Z made history as the first rapper to ever be inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. He couldn’t attend the ceremony because Bey is almost certainly about to give birth to the couple’s twins, and so Barack Obama recorded a short video introducing the GOAT.

In the video, Obama compares the similar and unlikely paths that the two men traveled to get to where they are today, made a self-deprecating joke about how both of their wives are more popular than them, and declared that he is probably the only POTUS to bump Hov in the Oval Office and probably will be for some time.

For his part, Jay later sent out a #veryrare tweetstorm in which he thanked fans and rattled off an extensive list of MC’s that influenced and inspired him. The list included everybody from Rakim and Big Daddy Kane, to former adversaries such as Cam’ron and Jaz-O, right up to current stars of the new generation like Mac Miller and Playboi Carti. Watch Obama’s speech above and read Jay’s tweets below.  Read More…

Dizzy Wright – FFL (Video)

This actually sounds & spells like my mantra but, as The Golden Age 2 approaches, Dizzy Wright continues promotion for his latest project with a visual for “FFL” — Fuck Fake Love, in non-acronym terms. Should have been called “Fuck Funk Volume”, just sayin’, but no need to rehash any corniness.

The video, directed by Simon David, is cut with footage of his children walking around Paris as he gives us a take on fake family and friends.
