    I loved these clips.  DJ Jazzy Jeff + Fresh Prince, LL Cool J, Eric B. + Rakim, A Tribe Called Quest, Biz Markie.  Every time I watch clips of Yo! MTV Raps, it just takes me back.  Being young, no responsibilities, staying up late on the weekends when they'd air the long episode of Yo! MTV Raps.  Fashion, music, culture, everything was good back then.  Even the emcees that I didn't like were good...lol

    Jerry Heller Might Sue Straight Outta Compton
    Eazy E's manager finally saw the movie and wasn't pleased.
    By Evelyn DiazPosted: 08/29/2015 11:19 AM EDT
     Straight Outta Compton is one of the biggest success stories at the box office this year, so it's no surprise the film is attracting its fair share of controversy.
    Now, Eazy-E's manager Jerry Heller is one of the people to come out of the woodworks pointing a finger at the N.W.A biopic, which has already soared past $100 million at the box office.
    Played by Paul Giamatti in the film, Heller was an integral part of the group's success, though he was accused of preying on their lack of knowledge of the music industry and using it to his advantage.
    Heller, who says he was not consulted about the film, finally bought a ticket to see the flick, and was none too pleased about the way he was portrayed. "I did see it on Saturday," he told The Los Angeles Times, "and I’m still not willing to comment right now on that movie because I think sooner or later it may be part of an ongoing litigation."
    Well, they had to see that coming.

    Praise! The Isley Brothers Release 23-Disc Greatest Hits Box Set

     The legendary R&B/Soul groups chronicles 24 years of music with 'The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983)'
    For over five decades, The Isley Brothers have pretty much created music that has probably been the soundtrack to some point of your life. That heart wrenching break-up? The Isley’s Brothers---and a little 151 and coke or a glass of Moscato---were there. Bedroom relations with your man? Cue “Between the Sheets.” Your day off from work? Is that “Summer Breeze” we hear? Simply put, these men have the made life defining music.

    Now, the legendary group is chronicling a substantial piece of their long musical legacy with the release of The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983), a 23-disc greatest hits box set that features every album the group released during that 24-year-period.

    From their days as a 1950’s era “doo-wop/gospel vocal group,” to their transformation into one the “world's preeminent R&B rock 'n' soul powerhouse party” bands; this collection is a must have for that Isley Brothers' music aficionado.
    The box set features newly remastered versions of 21 albums released on both of the record labels, and 84 rare and previously unreleased bonus tracks. Major, right?

    If that wasn’t enough, the set also includes for the first time release of the "Great Lost Isley Brothers Album": Wild In Woodstock: The Isley Brothers Live At Bearsville Sound Studio 1980, which many have pegged as a “pivotal moment in the fusion of rock and funk music.”
    Born and raised in the suburbs of Cincinnati, Ohio; O'Kelly Isley, Jr., Rudolph Isley, Ronald Isley and a fourth brother, Vernon Isley (who died a couple of years after their first incarnation)--began performing as a group in 1954.

    The Isley Brothers: The RCA Victor and T-Neck Album Masters (1959-1983) is available on Amazon.com now.

    Okay....maybe not...
    OKP Exclusive: Yasiin Bey Calls Out Those Still Using The Words “Mos Def”
    When Yasiin Bey shared his new surprise single “Sensei On The Block,” many outlets (including Okayplayer) focused on it being labeled a Mos Def track, and harkened his return to the name by which we originally knew and loved him. Now, in a statement offered exclusively to Mr. Mass and Okaypalyer, the MC has set the record straight: Mos Def is gone for good. No more. Kaput. Any reference to new songs being released as “Mos Def material” are improper and, in his own words “illegal.”
    We’ll be the first to admit we made a mistake in our coverage of “Sensei,” but are now more than happy to help set the record straight for the entire music news industry. In his video statement (shot live on location from Banksy’s Dismaland), we’re notified that in no way is Yasiin returning to his old name. We’ve gone back and corrected our headlines (and heads); you oughtta do the same.
    — Yasiin Bey
    Bey also stresses that “the internet can be a very irresponsible place in terms of information and news,” a statement with which we agree wholeheartedly. Delivered to us by French maestro Mr. Mass, the clip should be watched in full by anyone who gives a damn about getting it right when it comes to this legendary artist’s music.

    Here's an update they sent to those who supported their Kickstarter...
    I Am, I Be...
    Posted by De La Soul
    Hello Fellow Humans, 
    Well... we're working hard to get this album sounding right for your vents to receive. Please accept our apologies for the delay in updates.
    Great news!! We've recruited more amazing talents and we're happy to announce that we now have Usher, Pete Rock, Roc Marciano, Estelle and Snoop Dogg on the album. Can't wait for you to hear these collaborations!!
    The work to complete this album has increased, but progress is still in forward motion. For your viewing enjoyment, here's some footage of Bob Power, getting some of these mixes underway. Now, let us get back to work...

    With all of the recent news of Yasiin Bey making headlines, the Brooklyn MC’s return to music was a topic of conversation for many, and with the release of a video for “Basquiat Ghostwriter” earlier this week, it seemed his return was inevitable. Now he’s back with more new work, this time in the form of a Ski Beatz-produced track called “Sensei on the Block.” Released as a Mos Def song, it is a reunion of sorts for the rapper and producer duo, who previously worked together on “Cream of the Planet,” a single from Ski Beatz’s 2010 album 24 Hour Karate School. With two new songs released in one month under different stage names, the enigma and ever-evolving entity that is Mos Def/Yasiin Bey continues to surprise and inspire, but one constant has remained – both are undeniably Hip-Hop. Mos Def is certainly repping his old, familiar sound on this latest release, and his Bed Stuy shout-out adds a bit of throwback familiarity to Heads who have been following him since his earliest records.
    While official word on any forthcoming album hasn’t begun to circulate, Mos Def has nonetheless been busy lately, venturing into the world of stand-up comedy, putting forth a challenge to other rappers (which was allegedly leaked without his consent), and putting forth music as Yasiin Bey. Check out “Sensei on the Block,” and head over to iTunes to download it.

    Hmmmm....yeah.  I'm not crazy about his voice.  I almost like the music of the first song, but I don't like how it's mixed.  With some tweaking, it could be a decent funk song.  I agree with you though, this guy shouldn't get anywhere near a Hip-Hop song. He seems a little too into himself without any reason to be.
  8. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: John Newman rejected the chance to work with Will Smith   

    Julie, what is something that we can associate this guy with?  His wish washy response makes him sound like a 10 year old kid trying to look cool after he did something stupid.
    And I don't want to judge someone by their looks, but it does look like this guy should EVER attempt to make a Hip-Hop record.

  9. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: What Are You Listening To? XXII   

    Yo, I love this...lol.  Old school. Legendary cameos. 80's. Comedy. Randomness. Lyrics. Theatrical Hip-Hop mashup-up.

    A TUPAC MOVIE Is Already Being Made By Boyz N The Hood Director and Actor Who Played Pac in “Straight Outta Compton”
    #1 Tupacs Twin
    If you’re one of the many people who went to see “Straight Outta Compton”, there may have been a scene that left you thinking you saw a ghost. It happens at the end, when Dr. Dre is in the studio during his Death Row days, working on “California Love” with the late great Tupac. In reality, it was an actor by the name of Marcc Rose.
    #2 Boyz In The Hood
    Now his Tupac looks and acting chops have scored him the lead in a new Tupac biopic directed by legendary Boyz n the Hood John Singleton.
    #3 Afeni Shakur
    In a recent interview with Yahoo Movies, Marcc Dicussed the movie: “Me and John Singleton are trying to brainstorm and form together a proper biopic for him,” . You may remember that the two were already working on a Tupac movie, but left after Tupac’s mother, Afeni Shakur was left out of the filming.
    “When Singleton exited so did I,” he says. “If the rights to the biopic are returned to ‘Pac’s mom, Afeni Shakur, John Singleton and I will be reassociated with it.”
    #5 Fingers Crosse
    Let's all hope a biopic is truly in the works, because we'd love to see the true life of the legendary Tupac!!
  11. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: John Newman rejected the chance to work with Will Smith   

    I don't even know who this guy is. When they reference "Come and Get It," are they referring to Selena Gomez's hit?  If so, that was a good pop/dance song, but unless that guy is really versatile, I wouldn't want to hear him doing a track with my favorite emcee. 
  12. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - I'm Looking For The One (Live)   

    Simple mis-labeling.  I watched this when it aired live.  This performance as actually for an American Music Awards special, not the actual award show.  Later that year this performed "I Wanna Rock" on the AMA's.  As I recall, the other Hip-Hop/Rap performance was Snoop Dogg.
  13. JumpinJack AJ added a post in a topic: Straight Outta Compton   

    I picked up Compton. It's pretty average at best and rather unlistenable.  "Talking To My Diary" and "It's All On Me" are the only ones that met the standard of what I was hoping the album would be like.  There's too many features and the experimenting he did with the sound just wasn't worth it.  I'll listen to it more later, but after the first sample, I'm not eager to do so.  I'm more eager to make a dope mix with those two songs I like.

    Arrested Development's Lead Singer Speech Thomas Shares Thoughts On "Straight Outta Compton"
    "I applaud Ice Cube, Gary F Gray & Dr. Dre because they know how to tell a great story! The accurate portrayal of a Hip Hop producer's heart.... wanting to make something special...well done. The vicious sharks that swim in music industry waters...greatly exposed. The acting, promotion and soundtrack... superb! In a country where excellence in black film on the big screen isn't seen enough, it's proudly exhibited here. 
    But from the perspective of the ancestors, they got some explaining to do. Centuries of struggle by our men, women and children who were thoroughly desolate with only one hope. The hope that through their perseverance, future generations would have it better than they did. Many died for that very reason. 

    That's the African-American legacy. 
    It was just two weeks ago, we all were discussing how soiled America still is from the horrors of slavery and the following systematic racism. 
    Blacks for hundreds of years purposely portrayed in every advertisement, news article, play, TV show and movie as dangerous, vile, uncaring, simple, roguish brutes, with intelligence a tad higher than a monkey. Year after year, decade after decade, century after century... And here we are today - as white trigger happy cops shoot blacks. It doesn't matter if they're unarmed, cuz in the minds of so many, blacks are always armed with centuries of dangerous propaganda. And a lie can run around the world twice before truth can get her shoes on! 
    And in comes Hollywood pushing yet ANOTHER movie with that same ole narrative... "Straight Outta Compton!" With the convenient subtitle - "The worlds most dangerous group." 
    that literal or it's figurative? None of them came from the most dangerous of street life but Easy E. right? I often hear that they're dangerous because of Cube's defiant lyrics & fierce determination to speak "truth" to power. Ummm, that sounds honorable. 
    But I'm sure I can come up with a few more suggestions more appropriate than NWA. The Black Panthers for instance might be better suited for such an honor. With fierce determination they defied an entire system at risk of their very lives! They REALLY fought for justice and most paid the ultimate price. An epic bio pic that shows how these brave young men and women organized change for all races and genders, showing true devotion mixed with legal prowess... that's a film suggestion! And can I get a witness that NWA's "F** the Police" is only the prevailing anti-police brutality anthem BECAUSE the music industry championed it. It didn't take the FBI long at all to see that NWA was ultimately a harmless group because their other songs & political savvy was thoroughly misguided and non-directional. As opposed to the earlier & less popular "F** the Pigs" that the Black Panthers often shouted as they persevered through police harassment as actual freedom fighters, not as drug dealers and pretend thugs. Historically there were activists that started as thugs but TRANSFORMED into purposeful revolutionaries. 
    I've heard some say, the title "most dangerous" is as far as MUSICAL groups are concerned.... Ummm wouldn't PUBLIC ENEMY better fit that definition? But see a movie like that would simply be too dangerous, it might cause people to do more than ooo and aaah over the financial success of a music producer & rapper who made nice movies and headphones. It might cause REAL change. 
    NWA may be the most dangerous, but not because they fought against a racist and oppressive system... but because they were effective ambassadors of that very system! I like to call it white supremacy on wax! Who else could have done such a great job at spreading the age old message that blacks are morally sub-human? Many things white supremacists say about blacks is what NWA confirms in their most popular songs. And yes, in 2015 Twitter is going nuts praising the film and much of the hiphop world is bowing down to NWA as heroes in the genre. But I applaud a good number of blacks that "don't believe the hype"! 
    Bio pics about rap artists are few and far between, but take notice to WHICH rap movies Hollywood green lights for major motion picture release? And have you ever thought about WHY these particular movies? 
    Biggie's Notorious, Eminem's 8 Mile, 50 Cent's Get Rich or Die Trying and NWA's Straight Outta Compton! Most of which come straight outta Jimmy Iovine's & Dre's storehouse of thuggery, and celebrate the "American Dream" thru gritty accounts of drug deals, crack addicted communities, strip clubs, friends that deceive each other and gun battles gone wrong. And then the inevitable transformation from rags to riches. As they live happily ever after (in their death though). Oh yeah, Biggie was about right, that if you're black...you're nobody til somebody kills you! 
    To quote Public Enemy... "Burn Hollywood Burn!" They're pretty much about money and judging by this past weekends ticket sales... THEY'RE WINNING! Stay tuned for a Tupac, Ice T and whomever else da cap fits bio pic for us all to swoon over! 
    Feed us our illusions, Hollywood has no skin in the game, it's just money to them. But don't we as blacks literally have skin in the game? 
    It's our SKIN that signals brainwashed cops to pull us over just because we didn't use a turn signal. Or blow our brains out for trying to start our car while being questioned. Or get choked to death, spines snapped, or just walking home wearing a hoodie. 
    There's gotta be a point where we WEIGH the pains we feel from years of being mis-represented against the joy we feel seeing another black thug soliloquy on the big screen! The pain lasts for years, the joy last 2 and a half hours. You do the math. 
    There's gotta be a breaking point when we make a critical decision. Directionless expression or real freedom? I know, I know... no one screams when Scorsese does a gangster film, why pick on rappers? Because Jewish people aren't making these movies WHILE simultaneously getting shot down in the streets by their own kind, arrested in astronomical rates and their rappers literally getting assassinated like they were in a Middle East war zone! 
    When is enough... ENOUGH!? 
    Consciousness didn't start with NWA, J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar's "To Pimp a Butterfly", nor ‪#‎blacklivesmatter‬. 
    It's been in full effect since slavery and we must keep our eyes on the prize to reach the finish line! 
    On the big screen, these rappers are portrayed as bigger than life heroes and even somehow "freedom fighters"! But TRUE heroes like Julian Bond, Garvey, Harriet & Parks deserve a bio pic, because they served US all! But would we support it? 
    It NEVER was enough to have a conscious song or two on an otherwise "white supremacist" gangsta record. It's not enough to have things "go in cycles"... (people say that to me all the time about music) 
    It's about standing on the shoulders of those that stood before us until we get out from the ditch that hides our humanity! 
    Our values are so backwards that fathers, mothers, educators, intellectuals & activists don't fill today's memes and murals. Instead it's Tupac, Biggie, NWA and maybe a Jay-Z. The murals you see painted in the ghettos, (I've even seen em in the outskirts of Africa!) Memes of these rappers floating around on the Internet and interviews at the end of albums with their "prophetic" words. 3D holograms of them in front of wooing crowds. Supposed martyrs packaged and shrink wrapped in a CD. "Heroes" of the people - celebrated, applauded, jailed and assassinated, with a level of admiration that you'd think they died because of political resistance or activism, but no. It's simply a petty beef or a record executive hungry for more money. 
    We have so lost our way, that we celebrate their temporary success - in lieu of our own lasting success. 
    Behind the riches of every Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Easy E. or Suge Knight are quiet little Jewish & White guys in polo shirts that are even richer than them. 
    They play golf and listen to Bach while they count their money. Meanwhile we wallow in these decadent, century old stereotypical, blaxploitation flicks and albums, their kids fly in private jets and vacation in Belize. Our kids suffer just walking to school. 
    Yes, Straight Outta Compton is very good and yes, these men have immense talent, but Italian mafioso refused to sell crack to their own communities.
    They insisted on separating their families from their illegal business. 
    We sell this "crack music" to our little kids and we infest the whole world with it! 
    It is NOT just entertainment. We are getting killed in real life. We influence Africa, South America and everywhere there's poor people that need inspiration. It has never been simple entertainment and it has far out reached the block.... it's racist propaganda. And it hurts the soul of humanity! 
    And by the way ITS NOT HONEST, it's not what we see in the hood. It's an embellishment of it, it's "reality" on steroids, it's someones story on performance enhancers! And the things that destroy these communities has become a Satanic virus, packaged and shipped out to every other community to infect those that were previously healthy. 
    That's my problem with NWA - not the music (it's brilliant) NWA endorsed the worse traits of the hood, promoted these traits and to justify their lust for fame they revised their purpose claiming it's a noble freedom of speech movement. 
    And many have bought that revisionist history, poured it in our glasses & ummm that kool aid taste sweet! White supremacy is happy, blacks got our thug heroes and the world keeps on turning. 
    So, sit and eat your popcorn, sip a Coke, enjoy a well-deserved break from lifes stress. 
    I know I did. I also know I made Ice Cube, Dr. Dre Gary Gray and a host of white dudes a bit richer! I'm alright with that. May God bless em. 
    But even as I'm entertained by the film, I know that unless we change our dynamics and moral infrastructure as black people, WE really are the entertainment. The silly blacks that can't realize the difference between an Arnold Schwarzenegger fiction and a propaganda missile aimed at the very demise of our freedom, dignity and culture. 
    GIL scott was right....The revolution will not be televised it will be screened in a theater near you. 
    Two thumbs up."
