Nipsey Hussle ‘Victory Lap’ Album Release Party Halted By Gunfire

Nipsey Hussle’s Victory Lap album release party came to an end by gunfire.

The Crenshaw rapper hosted an album release party for his debut LP Victory Lap at the World On Wheels in LA on Saturday Night. Nipsey Hussle reportedly bought the place last year so naturally, that’s where he would host his grand album release party. Sources say someone started firing shots in the parking lot just before midnight and one person was struck by a bullet and taken to the Cedar-Sinai Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

Cops were quick on the scene but the shooter got away by the time they arrived, TMZ reported. The victim also refused to cooperate with officers leaving them without a clue about what went down. Partygoers thought that it was another mass shooting incident underway and some of them sound off on Twitter saying that everyone panicked. World On Wheels is an iconic roller rink located in Venice, Los Angeles. Nipsey Hussle helped the place get back up last year when he invested his personal money into it.

Chris Brown Dismiss Rihanna & Beyonce Fans, Put Some Respect On My Name

Chris Brown wants fans of Rihanna and Beyonce to put some respect on his name.

The R&B singer sparked a heated debate among fans earlier this week when he says he would love to go on tour with Rihanna, Beyonce and Bruno Mars. While some fans and even myself think it would be dope to have a tour with these four artists, others think Chris Brown is not a big enough artist to want to tour with the other three acts.

“Chris your not big enough to want a tour with RiRi and Beyonce, your not even big enough like Bruno Mars so please sit your azz down and be humble, in my Kendrick Lamar voice,” one fan wrote while another added on Twitter, “I’m actually very tired of people who think Chris Brown is a better entertainer than Beyoncé. It’s embarrassing that you even think he is on her level. I’ve said this time without number, Beyoncé is the best entertainer of our era.”

Chris Brown posted a video of one of his loyal fans defending his honor and I got to admit, the fan has a point. “What the f*** is wrong with people trying to tarnish this dude’s legacy like this dude is not elite, this is the same dude that controls a whole generation of R&B,” the fan said in his video rant. “So we going to sit here and act like Chris Brown is not the closest thing to Michael Jackson, like he don’t do everything. Are you f***ing kidding me, the dude has been elite since he was 15 years old. This is the same man that bodies every feature and turn a whack song into a hit. What is a song without a Chris Brown feature.”

Breezy also shared his personal reaction to the chatters by reminding fans that his last album, Heartbreak on a Full Moon, is certified platinum. “SAY WHAT U WANT… really wouldn’t matter at this point. GREATNESS DEFENDS AND SPEAKS FOR ITSELF,” he tweeted.

Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd Collaborating On ‘Black Panther’ Album

Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are joining forces for the upcoming Black Panther: The Album.

The TDE rapper and Tog Dawg are executive producing the project and now we are learning that The Weeknd will be making some contributions. The movie itself is gearing up to be one of the biggest, if not the biggest premiere this year with pre-sale tickets already sold out. Kendrick Lamar is hoping that the hype around the moving will fuel interest in the soundtrack and already it’s showing signs that it will.

There are a few singles off the project that has already been released including a cut that will be featured on Jay Rock’s upcoming album. Complex reported that Kendrick Lamar and The Weeknd are putting together a collaboration for the soundtrack. There is no word yet on when the single or the album will arrive but definitely look out for it sooner than later.

K-Dot and The Weeknd have previously collaborated on the Canadian singer’s last album Starboy on the single “Sidewalks.” That track was a huge hit among fans of two of the biggest music stars in the world. The R&B singer posted a Black Panther artwork on his Instagram earlier this week, a clear sign that he has something coming on the project.

Aside from curating the Black Panther soundtrack, Kendrick is getting ready to go on tour with his labelmate SZA. Top Dawg Entertainment recently announced the “Top Dawg Entertainment Championship Tour” with the rapper and the singer as co-headliners. Lance Skiiwalker, Isaiah Rashad, ScHoolboy Q, Jay Rock, SiR, and Ab-Soul are also on the lineup. The label will be announcing the tour dates soon but it’s looking like another blockbuster affair for K-Dot and the TDE camp who have been having an impressive run over the past few years.

Rapsody Details How Kendrick Lamar Changed Her Life

Rapsody says working with Kendrick Lamar changed her life and career for the better.

The female rapper had a phenomenal year in 2017 and a big part of her success is attributed to Kendrick Lamar whom she worked with on his landmark album To Pimp A Butterfly. Now she is nominated for a Grammy awards for Best Rap Album for her latest project Laila’s Wisdom. She is the only female rapper to be nominated in the category this year. Aside from dropping her album last year, she released a handful of singles that did very well on the airwaves.

Speaking with Larry King in a recent interview, Rapsody details how Kendrick Lamar significantly impacted her career last year and put on a scale she never thought she would reach. “After I worked with Kendrick on To Pimp A Butterfly, it put me on a platform where he introduced me to a lot of people that necessarily weren’t paying attention,” the rapper said. K-Dot is also nominated in the Best Rap Album category for his album DAMN. “It feels good to compete with your friends, you can compete but in a healthy way,” she said.

Rapsody also opened up about her impression of Kendrick Lamar as the face of rap music currently, telling Larry King that he is a fearless and humble rapper, who is not afraid to rap about anything he feels like. She says he first met the Compton rapper back in 2011 through producer 9th Wonder. They were both fans of each other at the time and Kendrick was a big fan of the producer.

As far as being the only female rapper nominated in the rap album category at the Grammy’s, Rapsody says it’s bittersweet because she grew up seeing a platter of female emcees in the 1990s and now it seems like there can only be one female mainstream rapper at a time.

Travis Scott Disappointed About Grammy Snubbing “Birds In The Trap”

Travis Scott says he feels some type of way about the Grammy snubbing his album Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight.

The album was released in September of 2016 and debut at number one on the Billboard chart after selling 88,000 equivalent album units in the first week of release. In an interview with Billboard, Travis Scott spoke about the project not getting its due respect from the industry despite his rise in the business over the last few years.

“I worked so hard on Rodeo and Birds,” he said. “It might not have been recognized by the masses, but my fans always went hard. This year I’m on a mission to be heard.” Despite both albums selling well in the digital space, Travis Scott says he has failed to receive critical acclaim by not even getting a Grammy nomination for his work. Other artists have echoed similar sentiments about being snubbed by the Grammy’s while some of his other peers are getting the Grammy red carpet rolled out for them like JAY-Z and Kendrick Lamar who both lead the list of nominees this year.

As for why he didn’t get a Grammy nod, Travis Scott says he has no idea but hopes that one day he will get the respect that he thinks that he deserves. “Maybe nobody played them the album, I don’t know,” the G.O.O.D. Music rapper added.

Travis Scott has a new collaborative album out with Quavo, Huncho Jack, Jack Huncho, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart and No. 1 on the Hip-Hop/R&B chart. He is currently working on his new album AstroWorld which is due in the spring of this year. His collaborator Quavo is currently getting ready to drop his new Migos album Culture 2, due this month. Perhaps AstroWorld will earn him his first Grammy nomination, keep your head up Travis.

L2B – Home lyrics

[Hook]
I’m prolly faded when I hit the scene,
Please don’t disturb me while I’m in my zone.
I’m tryna pull up in something you aint never seen,
While riding through my city feeling right at home,
I let ’em know, I hold it down,
Hold it down, hold it down, down, down,
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down,
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down.

[Verse 1]
I’m from New Haven City, I don’t have another home,
I be chillin’ right by Yale, next to Skull and Bones.
Come along with me to see a real artist in his zone,
Alone, in his own mind, trying to write another song,
Hypnotized by the music whenever it comes on,
Hardworking and talented, I kill two birds with one stone,
Making sure my story will never go untold,
Let the drama unfold ’cause my heart has gone cold,
First place reservation, got that spot on hold,
If she can hold a conversation and she’s hot, I’m sold.
Something like Midas, everything I touch turns gold,
I don’t slow down, keep it moving like I’m on the run though.
Got used to ballin’ out, like Rajon Rondo,
Me and the team going all out, tell me where’d the time go?
It aint nothing, got a problem, have it handled pronto,
End your career with one song, you’ll be another John Doe.

[Hook]
I’m prolly faded when I hit the scene,
Please don’t disturb me while I’m in my zone.
I’m tryna pull up in something you aint never seen,
While riding through my city feeling right at home,
I let ’em know, I hold it down,
Hold it down, hold it down, down, down,
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down,
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down
I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down.

[Verse 2]
Man, the rap game lacks originality these days,
All these songs sound the same, talking about
Stealing your chick, and being rich,
It’s as if they got nothing else to say,
It’s hard to differentiate these dudes when
They’re all doing their best impression of Drake.
The styles repetitive, I mean how much can we take?
Most of you rappers sound dumb,
There’s not much more I can say.
I’m such a perfectionist with this, I can’t afford a mistake,
So I’m here to inform you that I’m more than a basic artist,
I’m already great.
I’m sick of corny rappers acting like you’re leading the way.
Ya’ll aint leading shit,
Lead the way in the kitchen and make me a PB & J.
They say Kendrick Lamar set the bar for being lyrical huh?
When really he stands out ’cause every other rapper you hear sucks.
Lyrics, I don’t hear much. Talent, I don’t hear enough,
Your music only sounds bearable while I’m wearing ear plugs.
It’s hysterical, my style is incomparable, plus,
I just care way too much to let all you wack rappers “Turn up!”

[Hook]

I hold it down, hold it down,
Hold it down, down, down.
