Chris Rock Dubs Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" The GOAT

1542984363_536ba97e9ceb7a50ec2ece704b38c2d8.jpg



The greatest album of all time is a high honor, and one that has become increasingly difficult to narrow down. After all, the sheer number of potential candidates are staggering, spanning across all genres, depending on who you ask. Yet Chris Rock has taken to Instagram to voice his own selection: Kanye West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Released on November 22nd, 2010, Yeezy’s masterpiece has been named by many as one of music’s quintessential projects, regarded as Ye’s magnum opus and artistic peak. It’s not entirely a hot take from Rock, but a respectable choice nevertheless.

One has to wonder if his own biases have come into effect. Does he love My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy because he is on it, or did he contribute his vocal talents to the project because he loves it? In any case, the Chris Rock-assisted “Blame Game” is but one of many classic Kanye songs, and his claim is not without merit. Kanye West delivered something truly amazing, piecing together a nightmarish landscape with just enough humanity to render listeners with an optimistic sense of hope. Covering themes of insecurity, hedonism, and loss, Kanye West’s fifth studio is exactly as his title promises: Beautiful, Dark, and Twisted.

Statik Selektah & Termanology Take It Back Like It's "Still 1982"

1542951045_1af7e123be3a19aa8db96e79ca623dd0.jpg



Termanology and Statik Selektah are continuing their 1982 line with another entry into the series. Referencing the year both artists were born, Still 1982 sounds much like its predecessor, finding creative strength within the old school boom bap sound. The new joint project runs for 12 tracks, and features Chris Rivers, Conway, Kendra Foster, CJ Fly, Crimeapple, Lil Fame of M.O.P., and more.

“I love making the 1982 projects with Statik because we have a formula we use and it always works,” Termanology told HHDX. “We always have a couple conceptual songs, some really grimy, disrespectful songs, a radio song or two, some boom bap beats with scratches and a little R&B with some updated topics lyrically. We not tryna jump on every wave. We just stick to doing what we do best and doing it at the highest level.”

“It’s definitely filling a gap right now of just fun, traditional East Coast Hip Hop,” Statik added. “No extra hype or gimmicks. Got some fun guests on it.” Stream Still 1982 on Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music now.

1542952465_09868e0afaa0371ef67e83e9412f87d3.jpg



Right before the six-year anniversary of Pro Era’s Peep The Aprocalypse mixtape, the team has re-released the timeless project. The re-issue features all the original tracks, and also a new banger called “Know the Rules,” featuring Joey Badass, CJ Fly, and Kirk Knight. The new single is produced by Statik Selektah, who has been a busy man as of late.

The original Peep The Aprocalypse dropped just four days before Capital STEEZ passed away. “I could relate to Chuck [Strangers] about being at the bottom of the totem pole,” STEEZ told MTVwhile promoting the mixtape before his tragic death. “You put yourself in a mind state [where you] lower your expectations, something big is always gonna happen. And that’s the mind state. I gotta keep reminding myself every day. That’s how I kinda stay afloat.” Stream the re-release of Peep The Aprocalypse on Spotify, Tidal, and Apple Music.

Termanology Grabs Chris Rivers & Conway For "30 Shots"

1542954813_68b340455fcf159b455ee08c4fa14d21.jpg



Statik Selektah has done it again. The moment the instrumental drops for “30 Shots” it’s clear that Termanology, Conway, and Chris Rivers have a masterpiece to rhyme over. The jazzy sample employs sweet vocals and a reverberating horn to hammer home the vintage vibe that permeates the entire Still 1982 project. Termanology and Statik touched down with the new album on Black Friday, and “30 Shots” stands out as one of the best singles on the project.

Termanology, Conway, and Chris Rivers keep it brief on “30 Shots,” pushing the chorus aside to deliver as many bars as possible in under three minutes. The energy is immaculate as Chris Rivers enters the track and raps about hand-me-downs, his come-up, and his skills. Termanology and Conway pick it up for the second half of the song, and explains the many reasons why they are better than the competition. 

Quotable Lyrics
I ain’t a regular rapper
I will smack you like a bitch homie
Your head’ll turn backward
Matter fact, I’m way better than rappers
They records trash

Blac Chyna Allegedly Never Used The Skin Whitening Cream She Advertises

1542967162_dccd5613ba67a3e427b5ff31fad9774c.jpg



The money is the motive. Black Chyna caught the flames of the internet when it was discerned that she was selling skin-whitening cream this week. The cream, called Whitenicious, is being peddled by Chyna in Nigeria. The idea of someone being ashamed of their skin color is nothing new, but what’s worse? Someone who is ashamed of their own skin color, or someone who isn’t embarrassed but chooses to spread a poisonous message because of a paycheck? Chyna appears to be the latter. 

According to TMZsources very close to Chyna claim that she never used to the product in her life. The whitening cream retails for $250 per Swarovski crystals-studded bottle, and Chyna is allegedly just in it for the dough. The company approached her to promote their product, and she signed on the dotted line. Simple as that. Chyna’s reps also told TMZ that she has been using Whitenicious dark spot corrector products for years to deal with hyperpigmentation. They reaffirmed that she never used the whitening cream though. Although lighting and Photoshop can do wonders, it really does appear that Chyna applied a liberal amount of the cream on her skin in the promo pictures. Do you believe her reps?

Tekashi 6ix9ine Orders A Hit On Chief Keef's Cousin In Shocking New Video

1542965475_a782eb02473b45833b4127f0eadc0bb4.jpg



The Tekashi 6ix9ine drama continues to unfurl. TMZ got their hands on some incriminating new footage, that shows the rainbow-haired rapper ordering a hit on Chief Keef’s cousin Tadoe. In the video, Tekashi argues with Tadoe on Facetime as he walks around outside. His crew chills within earshot, as Tekashi delivers his infamous cocky bravado.

“Who’s the last person you shot?” instigates Tekashi. If you recall, the Brooklyn rapper was beefing with Chief Keef and his entourage earlier this year. This video was captured at the end of May. Days later, Keef dodged some bullets when he was shot at in New York. In the video, Tekashi and Tadoe bicker on Facetime for just over two minutes. Near the end of the video, Tekashi asks for Tadoe’s address. “Matter fact, I’ma just get your address. I know where you at,” gloats the “Gummo” rapper. “You gonna be in your crib, or Sosa hotel?,” he asked before hanging up and addressing his crew.

“Yo, I gotta thirty pack on him right now,” brags Tekashi to his boys. “Swear to God I gotta thirty pack. Thirty thou cash.” The video will undoubtedly be used in court against Tekashi, who is sitting in prison at the moment facing life

Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, & CJ Fly Release "Know The Rules"

1542956186_a60894031c179b407eaa7da7b0df5d75.jpg



Pro Era re-released their classic mixtape Peep The Aprocalypse on Black Friday, just weeks ahead of the six-year anniversary. The re-release features all the original tracks, but Joey Bada$$, Kirk Knight, and CJ Fly teamed up to bring fans one new single. Entitled “Know The Rules,” the new single is produced by Statik Selektah. He uses smooth jazz horns to paint a picture that sounds like Central Park on a weekend afternoon. The vintage sound is perfect for the Pro Era members, who shine on the delicious single.

A sample of The Notorious B.I.G.’s “Long Kiss Goodnight” spins around “Know The Rules” as Joey, Kirk, and CJ opine about life. They crew touches on the death of Capital STEEZ, which occurred just a few days before the original mixtape dropped in 2012. As usual, Pro Era channels that 90’s New York vibe on their latest outing. This is a single that shouldn’t be looked over. 

Quotable Lyrics
It be the nights like this that make me question his name
And it’s sights like this that make me question the fame
Feeling like, I’m the only one who’s destined to blame
Never testing my fate, so I ain’t resting today

Ryan Leslie Creates New Single "Thankful" From In Home Studio: Watch

1542957304_77dda7c7ee8709f014b9eb505b08a6a0.jpg



Those who may follow Ryan Leslie know that the talented producer, singer, and songwriter loves to film himself creating songs. Leslie will lock himself in the studio and jump from instrument to instrument as he builds a song. The recorded process comes out looking dope each time, and on Thanksgiving, Leslie did it again. 

Leslie hopped into his studio and began to play a few keys on the piano. After mumbling to himself about feeling thankful, Leslie runs with the concept. The drums drop in next as Leslie plays with some setting in Pro Tools before returning to the music making. Watching the multi-talented artist play on different instruments and basically freestyle the lyrics is a sight to behold. After the keys and drums are set, Leslie picks up a bass and lays down a complimentary melody on the reverberating instrument. “Big plans, big business, that’s the one-two,” raps Leslie as he sits back down at the piano. “Big body black Benzes when I come through,” he continues. 

When Leslie’s woman walks into the studio, he begins to mold the lyrics after her. Talk about romance. “When you need it, give you space so I avoid a fight… I’m smart,” raps Leslie. Check out the full creation of “Thankful” below.

1542953495_2f0f5bef0fb2d136f9df8461e02e326d.jpg



Benny The Butcher dropped off “Joe Pesci 38” mid-November with the promise that he would be releasing a new project as well. Produced in its entirety by The Alchemist and Daringer, Tana Talk 3 has touched down on Blak Friday. The 14 track album features appearances from other known lyrical monsters such as Royce Da 5’9, Conway, Westside Gunn, and Meyhem Lauren. 

“My block is called Montana,” explained Benny to HHDX. “We call it Tana for short. In 2000s – here’s some history right here. In 2005, I dropped a mixtape called Tana Talk 2, because I already did one that was 1. So it’s like, when I put 2 out, it was couple people buzzing in the city and doing they thing. But when I put 2 out, I shocked the whole city. People still talk about that tape to this day. And it’s like, people knew what I was, what type of time I was on. I was hungry, I was killing shit. It was West’s idea to name it Tana Talk 3, because like I said, he wanted to recreate that energy.” As promised, Benny goes in on Tana 3, delivering exactly what you would expect from a Griselda artist.

Kelly Rowland Drops Off Self-Titled Single On Thanksgiving

1542949683_6923e2059ae663c4dadd76aef12de5ca.jpg



Kelly Rowland has been quiet on the music front for quite some time. The former Destiny’s Child member dropped her album Talk A Good Game in 2013, and has been behind the scenes ever since. On this thankful holiday, Rowland has ended her musical silence with a self-titled single. “Kelly” is a fresh banger that draws heavy influence from the Atlanta trap sound. 

Rowland knows the importance of self-love. She sings about her lavish life and gives herself props on the new single. At the same time, Rowland reminds listeners that she has her foot on the competition’s throat, singing that she refuses to remain humble anymore. She walks a thin line between rapping and singing and sounds more confident than ever over the bass-heavy instrumental. If we’re lucky, Rowland will deliver a new album sometime soon. In the meantime, enjoy “Kelly.”

Quotable Lyrics
Kelly don’t really give a fuck how you feel
Kelly ain’t humble no mo’ nigga
Kelly got a foot on your throat nigga
