    REDMAN - I'll Bee Dat!
    Doc's Da Name (1998)
    Oh man, I always wanted this album and just never got it.  I finally got it tonight and I'm being time warped back to fall 1998.

    Most of us have probably seen this before, but it's been awhile. It's from the same shoot as the one at the top of this page of the thread.

    It's cool that a lot of the cast is returning, but it doesn't justify returning to a world and trying to come up with a new story for it when the first is a stand-alone film in every way.  It'll be interesting to see if I'll eat my own words in the future, but I see this whole thing as fueled by greed.  There's no art to it, just a chance to monopolize off something people already spent a lot of money to see back in 1996.

    The link at the bottom will take you to the music video.  I'm not sure why it didn't load as a video.

    Gang Starr’s Guru Lives In Spirit. Watch His New Music Video (Premiere)
    This weekend (April 19) marks five years since the tragic passing of Keith “Guru” Elam. A founding member of Gang Starr, Guru is a Boston, Massachusetts-born MC known for his street-smart rhymes, raspy voice, and 20-plus-year quest to stylishly merge Hip-Hop with Jazz.
    In honor of Guru and the sad death anniversary, another Boston MC, Avrex takes a lesser heard Guru track, and re-edits it with the late icon’s family’s blessing. Big Shug, an early Gang Starr member and longtime collaborator with Guru and DJ Premier, also joins Avrex for “Propaganda.” The song is produced by DJ Lord Ron, who was friends with Guru, and originally laced the low-key 2000s-era track which the MC recorded before his 2010 death.
    In the intro of the video premiered with Ambrosia For Heads, listeners will hear and see Guru’s sister, Patricia Elam celebrate and praise the work. “I’m so happy that some one is trying to keep his legacy alive,” she says of the song and video, which also includes appearances by Ice-T, Sadat X, and M-Dot, among others.

    Guru’s verse highlights the staged propaganda of the 1990s East/West Coast feud in Hip-Hop. He shouts out his own label, Ill Kid Records while supporting longtime partner, DJ Premier’s Year Round Records imprint as well. Avrex follows in, weaving in some iconic imagery from Guru’s discography. Shug (who just released Triple OGzus last month) closes out the collaboration talking about police profiling, stereotypes holding back society, and more. The video includes lots of footage from Guru and Gang Starr, including concert and TV visuals from their extensive career.
    In conjunction with the video, Avrex has released $2 MP3 downloads of the song. Additionally, Avrex has released “Propaganda” t-shirts.
    Rest In Peace Guru.

    I saw the news yesterday when it was still being said that he died on the Tom Joyner cruise.  I think it was originally supposed to do the cruise, which is where that part of the story came from.  Why I didn't follow his career too closely, I've always acknowledged "Just Got Paid" as one of the greatest and most important New Jack Swing songs of all time.  It's such a shame, especially at such young an age. Rest in peace.
  7. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: Forum upgrade   

    Random question, do we want the feature that allows people to rank members of the board.  I see how some of the regular posters who are contributing to the board have negative ratings.  Tim created the board and he probably has the worst rating.  Who are the idiots who are rating people?  I just kinda feel that the feature is irrelevant.
    Also, and this one is for the moderators, there were reported issues for the board that have been sitting for a few weeks.  I finally had a minute to go in and clean them out.  One of them was a random link, which was spam.  The other two were not worth of being reported.  To my understanding, these were reported at three different times by guests.  I was just wondering if someone who isn't logged in or registered should be able to report stuff since it ended up being a waste of my time for the most part.
    Just thoughts...

    This beat is dope!  Sounds like something Digable Planets would rhyme over in 2015.  Jaden is trippy and pretty legit on the mic.  I wish he'd release an album loaded with songs on this level. 
    Man, this is so good.

    Percy Sledge Dies at 73
    Apr 14, 2015, 11:00 AM ETBy MICHAEL ROTHMAN and ANDREA DRESDALE Percy Sledge is pictured performing at the Joy Theater on Jan. 28, 2012 in New Orleans, La.Erika Goldring/Getty ImagesFamed R&B singer Percy Sledge died this morning in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, his agent Steve Green confirmed to ABC News. He was 73.
    The Alabama native, most known for his classic 1966 hit "When a Man Loves a Woman," which reach No. 1 on the charts, died after a long battle with cancer, his agent of 35 years added.
    Sledge had been singing for the past 50 years and music was released under his name all the way till 2013 with "The Gospel of Percy Sledge."
    According to Sledge's Rock & Roll Hall of Fame bio, his hit "'When a Man Loves a Woman' topped the R&B and pop charts for multiple weeks and raised the bar for soul balladeering for all time. Yet Sledge’s career didn’t end with that momentous first single. Over the years he racked up a dozen hits at Atlantic, including 'Warm and Tender Love,' 'It Tears Me Up,' 'Out of Left Field' and 'Take Time to Know Her.'"
    His most-famous song was inspired by real life events. "When a Man Loves a Woman" was about "a girl who left Sledge for another guy," his bio reads.
    Sledge "was working as a hospital orderly when he began playing clubs and frat parties," shortly before his big break.
    In 1989, Sledge earned the Rhythm and Blues Foundation’s Career Achievement Award and in 2005, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2005.

    This is interesting. I'm wondering if he's just following the code, is scared for his life, and/or realizes that he stirred up some trouble and that nothing will bring back his friend.
    Suge Knight’s Victim Reportedly Doesn’t Want To ‘Snitch’
    By: VIBE / April 13, 2015Snitches get stitches. And even when you don’t snitch, you get run over.
    The victim of Suge Knight’s hit-and-run incident has some insane loyalty. To whom however, is not clear. Apparently Cle “Bone” Sloan – yes, the man who was brutally injured by Suge and his truck – refused to snitch in court according to ABC 7 Los Angeles. In a touching (and confusing) testimony earlier this morning (Apr. 13), a teary-eyed Bone claimed he “doesn’t want to be used to send this man to prison.”
    “Every day, I tried to forget it,” he added. “I just know, I screwed up, and Terry’s dead.”
    SEE ALSO: Suge Knight Passes Out In Court Room After Judge Hands Down $25 Million Bond
    Bone apparently tried to take the weight off of Suge for the death of his other victim, Terry Carter, and refused to help prosecutors. One might think that someone who was in the hospital with two fractured ankles, torn ligaments in both knees, and a shoulder injury would take the stand and demand some justice.
    Either we all need to take a moment and witness this undying loyalty (no pun intended), or we need to take a moment to rewind those surveillance tapes.
    Prayers up for Terry Carter and his family. – Olivia Jade Khoury
  11. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: MARIAH CAREY - #1 To Infinity   

    My heart broke when Mariah's last album didn't sell well.  To me, it was her best album since The Emancipation of Mimi, which was her best album since Butterfly.  It has a perfect mix of R&B, Soul, and Hip-Hop with pop sensibilities to it. It even had a club song and a gospel song.  Classic Mariah.  I don't think the explicit lyrics sticker helped because no one things of Mariah have having that sticker on her albums.  If you haven't checked that album and have been pleased with most of her previous stuff, do yourself a favor and check it out.
    Anyways, the this tracklisting is a little risky.  All the die-hard fans have all of these songs but the new one.  Her 1998 #1's album had most of these songs on it with 4 new song or alternate versions. She also released two double disc Greatest Hits and Essentials albums, so this doesn't have much to offer.  I love her as a singer/songwriter, so I'll still get the album instead of just downloading the new song.  "Someday" is one of my all time favs. It's the song that made me fall in love with her.  I'm kinda annoyed that they put the inferior version from her MTV Unplugged performance.
    She's catching heat for the album cover since she's photo shopped. Part of me says thinks "get over it, critics." Another part of me thinks "Mariah, you've had twins and you're not 20 anymore. We understand."
    Anyway, are there any Mariah fans left on the board?  Thoughts on her last album and/or this new collection?

    Mariah Carey Announces Release Date, Tracklist For '#1 To Infinity'
    By Andrew Hampp, New York | April 13, 2015 9:45 AM EDT
     After releasing the album artwork for Mariah Carey #1 To Infinity, a comprehensive greatest-hits package compiling all 18 of her Billboard No. 1s, Mariah Carey has confirmed its release date.
    Due May 18 on Epic Records / Columbia Records/Sony Legacy, Infinity reunites Carey with Epic chairman-CEO Antonio "L.A." Reid, who helped spearhead Carey's mid-2000's comeback with The Emancipation of Mimi as then-chairman of Island Def Jam Records. In addition to Carey's 15 Sony No. 1's and three Universal No. 1's, the album will include one brand-new selection, title track "Infinity." The song will premiere globally on April 27 via all digital services, as well as a video directed by Carey's longtime collaborator Brett Ratner. Carey is also expected to host a kick-off event for her upcoming Caesars Palace residency in Las Vegas on April 27, with more details to be announced shortly.
    Mariah Carey Reveals Cover Art for '#1 To Infinity' Album
    "I couldn't be more thrilled to be back together again with Mariah," says Reid in a statement. "There is really no one who comes close to Mariah as both a songwriter and a singer, and as the world knows, her vocal range is legendary and truly incomparable.  Her music is indelibly etched into our culture, and she's shattered so many chart records that she's now firmly entrenched in the history books.  With a fierce and loyal fan base that covers every corner of the globe, I have no doubt Mariah will do it again."
    Infinity is the first release in a multi-album deal with Epic, which Carey signed earlier this year. Carey will perform all 18 No. 1s for the first time ever as part of her residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and is expected to pepper fan-favorite album cuts and previously never-performed tracks into each set as well. The first 18 confirmed 2015 performances are May 6, 9, 10, 13, 16, 17, 20, 23, 24; and July 8, 11, 12, 15, 18, 19, 22, 25, 26. Tickets are available at: thecolosseum.com or axs.com.

    Yeah, I get the impression that the crew is really supportive of his music and that it let to this intimate performance. The fact that Jazzy showed up for it even though it wasn't a huge show is dope.  He seems to be getting into Lost + Found mode, which is a great thing...except with Jeff involved, it's an even better thing.

    New rhymes! I was so happy that I didn't even notice that is was over "Clique", which is a song I despise...lol  That says something.
