Twenty years ago, two independent singles—by Ghetto Concept and Saukrates, respectively—changed the future course of Toronto hip-hop.
The year 1994 saw the release of several landmark American hip-hop albums, and 2014 has been doing a good job of remembering them. In addition to Notorious B.I.G.’s debut, Ready to Die, 1994 yielded such classics as Nas’ Illmatic and Outkast’s Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, whose 20th anniversaries are currently being celebrated with a remastered re-release and an extensive comeback tour, respectively.
With hip-hop firmly established as a global phenomenon by the early ’90s, Toronto aficionados were no less voracious in their Continue reading

Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy was arrested Tuesday morning on charges of assault on a female and communicating threats after an incident with his girlfriend, identified as 24-year-old Nicole Holder, who alleges that Hardy threw her on a couch covered with firearms.
On Thursday, after a judge dismissed a request for a temporary restraining order against Hardy because the accuser failed to appear at a civil hearing in Charlotte, another judge, who had presided over Hardy’s bond hearing on Wednesday, amended the terms of the bond and he must now surrender all of his weapons and firearms, according to the Charlotte Observer.
According to the Observer, Holder’s protective-order complaint states “that Hardy was angry with her because of a short-lived relationship with the rapper Nelly, who is Continue reading
THE BATTLE IS ON — Sherri Shepherd will FIGHT her estranged husband tooth and nail to get CUSTODY of their unborn child … this according to prenup docs obtained by TMZ.

Under the prenup, Lamar agrees that Continue reading

A-Trak and Cam’ron are back! Summer anthem “Dipsh*ts” features uncut Cam’ron slick talk over triumphant instrumental blasts from A-Trak, Oliver and Just Blaze, a Dipset-repping Juelz Santana on the hook, and “Champagne Dame” (aka Federal Reserve executive producer Damon Dash) providing a legendary, song closing rant, complete with “Foooooooool’s Gold” shout!
This Federal Reserve cut gets the epic video it deserves thanks to director Ricky Saiz, who follows up his work for Beyonce and Supreme with another iconic clip, capturing the rugged glory and inimitable fashion sense of Harlem and the Diplomats with true uptown-meets-downtown flair. From kids in airbrushed A-Trak tees to Cam’s floor-length mink, it’s the most style you’ll see in a video all year.
TMZ has leaked footage from a surveillance camera in an elevator which caught Solange Knowles physically attacking Jay Z multiple times, as Beyonce stood by. It is unclear what prompted the heated confrontation that occurred after a last week’s Met Gala. Every family has drama. Every one. We hope theirs is resolved peacefully. Here’s the video.
Here’s the statement from The Standard Hotel in NYC, where the incident took place:
“We are shocked and disappointed that there was a clear breach of our security system and the confidentiality that we count on providing our guests. We are investigating with the utmost urgency the circumstances surrounding the situation and, as is our customary practice, will discipline and prosecute the individuals involved to our fullest capacity.”
