According to Hip Hop Wired:

Famous Dex, and up and coming Chicago rapper and 300 Entertainment roster member, just derailed his career in epic fashion after he was caught on video beating his now ex-girlfriend. The surveillance video of Dex entering a Hollywood apartment building to unleash his savagery has since gone viral, with people reacting in varying degrees across the web. 

As reported by HHDX, the video was posted to Instagram by singer/songwriter Tish Hyman, a friend of the ex-girlfriend of the rapper. She says that he entered her Hollywood apartment building and began attacking her for reasons that are still yet undetermined. (Note: There is no suitable reason).

“Let this man #famousdex @famousdex stay at my place,” she began before revealing even more bad news.“He not only TRASHED And BROKE INTO my place. He beat this poor girl so badly. Is this the new generation of great artists that young people are looking up to? And is THIS the type of person a great company like @puma #puma chose to represent their brand. So disappointing. I hope this spreads through the Internet and shows these young people what Young Dexter is about. Thank you for hurting me young man. But you truly hurt yourself.”

Being as though I detest woman beaters, I won’t post the video here, but if you care to watch the pure fuckery then click here.

We have got to do so much better.

Social media is ablaze after the horrible news of Atlanta rapper, Shawty Lo’s death early this morning.

Rapper Shawty Lo’s Audi being towed away after hitting guardrail and bursting into flames on Atlanta highway.

According to Complex Magazine:

D4L rapper Shawty Lo, real name Carlos Walker, was killed in a car accident early Wednesday morning in Atlanta.

The news was first reported by rapper and radio personality Headkrack, and later confirmed by his manager Johnny Cabbell and by a post on his Twitter.

Lo was 40 years old, and a father to eleven children. The accident was originally reported by police as a hit-and-run, but was later revealed to only involve one vehicle. Lo’s white Audi went over the guardrail, hit trees, and caught fire.

Two other passengers in the car were taken to the hospital with injuries.

Fans and celebrities are devastated by the tradgedy and have lit up social media with condolences under the hashtag #RIPShawtyLo.

According to various reports, Shawty Lo had just left Atlanta’s Blue Flame strip club when the accident happened.

Shawty Lo was known for his signature “run in place” dance later adopted by rapper, Plies.

Shawty Lo had reportedly lost his father, also named Carlos Walker, last week. He posted the following tribute to his Instagram:

BMF Boss Big Meech Has Words Of Wisdom For Rapper Meek Mill

I normally don’t entertain Hip Hop social media beef, but every now and then I step outside my comfort zone. What the hay –right? You only live once.

At any rate, rappers The Game and Meek Mill are currently beefing. The Game insists that Meek Mill ‘snitched’ on him about a robbery that took place of pop singer Sean Kingston’s jewels at a concert some time back. [Click Here] to catch up on the backstory.

The beef has now spilled over into social media — and the underworld apparently, with Big Meech reaching out to Meek Mill from prison via a virtual kite.

Via Bossip: 

Game surprised just about everybody after the release of his “92 Bars” diss to Meek Mill. Meek has been something of a target after (depending on who you talk to) losing the rap battle against Drake. With Meek and Game being street rappers there’s a chance things could get ugly, which is probably why Big Meech decided to reach out. 

Big Meech, former leader of the notorious Black Mafia Gang, allegedly reached out to Meek to dole out some words of wisdom. Here’s what he had to say:

“I was trying to holler at you for a min[ute] so hopefully I can say something to you that means something before them dudes out there force your hand and make you crash and lose everything out there you work[ed] hard to get,” Meech wrote. “Wanna see you on top successful where you belong not in prison over avoidable dumb shit,” he added.

#BigMeech calming #MeekMill down 😩

Shoutout to Big Meech for stepping in ‘big homie’ style to try to squash the unnecessary beef. We need more big homies out there to step in when needed because today’s kids think nonsense is the way to go. (Side note:) I wonder why he reached out to Meek Mill and not both? 

In any case, these rappers have got to stop all this quarreling and put out some hot music worth listening to. The rap game is now a shell of its former self. Social media thugging has become the new way of promoting mixtapes and airing out grievances, and I have to admit, I’m not a fan. I’m from the days where –if you had a problem you would pick up the phone, or as my little brother says, “pull up.” 

Meek Mill also had a message for Game

“U wanna fight? Next morning a diss raps…… Then the pre-order links. THE JIG IS UP YALL GUYS REAL RAPPERS!”

WATCH: Jay Z Declares The War On Drugs “An Epic Fail” 

Check out this scathing eye opening short documentary in which Hov addresses the war on drugs in the U.S.

Why are white men poised to get rich doing the same thing African-Americans have been going to prison for?

New York Times:

This short film, narrated by Jay Z (Shawn Carter) and featuring the artwork of Molly Crabapple, is part history lesson about the war on drugs and part vision statement. As Ms. Crabapple’s haunting images flash by, the film takes us from the Nixon administration and the Rockefeller drug laws — the draconian 1973 statutes enacted in New York that exploded the state’s prison population and ushered in a period of similar sentencing schemes for other states — through the extraordinary growth in our nation’s prison population to the emerging aboveground marijuana market of today.

We learn how African-Americans can make up around 13 percent of the United States population — yet 31 percent of those arrested for drug law violations, even though they use and sell drugs at the same rate as whites.

Do you agree with Jay Z or nah?
