LL Cool J Is Back In Action After Some Upsetting Tweets.

Thirty-one years after the release of “Rock the Bells” and LL Cool J is still hard as hell. The Queens native joined Dr. Dre‘s “The Pharmacy With Dr. Dre” show on Apple’s Beats 1 Radio and laid down a few bars as the Good Doctor mans the board. Sounding as fresh as he did when he first burst on the scene in the ’80s, LL hasn’t lost a step when it comes to his flow and drops a bar that pays homage to his breakout hit “I Can’t Live Without My Radio.” The legendary MC joined the legendary producer’s show back in Sept. 2015, but the footage of the session just surfaced this week.

LL has been adamant about his status as one of the greats throughout the month of March. On March 2, the MC took to Twitter to respond to a blog post that says “there’s a whole generation of kids who’ll never know that LL Cool J was a rapper, and a pretty good one at that.  “Please stop pretending that we all don’t know [that] I’m one of the best to ever touch that mic,” he tweeted. “I stepped away and let you breathe. I can cut off your air supply with one single. Don’t test me…I don’t care if you Google my net worth. It’s more to it than that. I’m telling you on Twitter.”  Forgive the EXTRA long intro in the video below, the freestyle begins at 0:30.

 

If Marvel Comic Heroes Were Rappers (Vol. 1).

Marvel Comics, has been knocking pretty much anything they do out of the park over recent years, be it movies, comic re-telling, and now marketing.  It would be a bit difficult to conceive of Marvel heroes crossing into the rap game, but Axel Alonso, editor in chief of Marvel, and his team of artists conceived of variant covers in order to generate buzz for over fifty No.1 issues that Marvel started releasing last month.  These cover take popular and iconic hip hop covers, and give them a Marvel twist.  Check the method, and NOTE: The collection is so vast, we had to split this up into two posts.

Ice Cube was also asked about reports that N.W.A. would be reuniting for a reunion tour with Eminem filling in for the late Eazy-E. While both Dre and Eminem have disputed their involvement, Ice Cube told Power 99 that “We’ve definitely been talking about it. It’s just really about promotors coming to the table and we put together something that works for everybody. It’s definitely, definitely possible.”  Watch Ice Cube discuss Dre’s album and the possibility of N.W.A.’s possible reunion below.

Most Rappers Are Lying About Their Money


businessweek-most-rappers-are-lying-about-their-money-1

From expensive clothes to gaudy chains and customized rides, wealth has always been a major talking point in the hip-hop community – especially in rap lyrics. As Jay-Z chides on Magna Carta… Holy Grail‘s “Versus” track, “The truth in my verses versus your metaphors about what your net worth is.” Thus, Businessweek recently launched an inside look into hip-hop’s dubious tales of extraordinary wealth. The results confirm Hov’s skepticism of rap’s tried-and-true rags-to-riches narrative – one in which Jay has taken part in the truest sense while others’ claims to a cache of prosperity are, in truth, mostly unrealized.Here, Businessweek hilariously ousts some of the industry’s worst offenders – and most “humble” lyricists – with a telling “Actual Wealth vs. Alleged Wealth” comparison.
