NEWS: Lawsuit Against Chris Brown & Drake Dismissed! [KingpinTV.net]

A lawsuit filed against Chris Brown and his rap rival Drake after their notorious nightclub brawl last year has been thrown out of court.

The pair’s entourages came to blows in New York City’s W.i.P venue in June last year after an argument allegedly erupted over Rihanna, who has dated both of the stars.

Following the altercation, bosses at Entertainment Enterprises, Ltd., who own a large stake in Greenhouse, a club located in the same building, filed a $16 million lawsuit against the pair, alleging their reputation was ruined by the media fallout.

However a judge has disagreed with their claims and ruled the stars have no duty to behave in the club, especially as they were not even in the nightspot when the fight broke out. The judge also insisted altercations in nightclubs are common, and bosses can’t sue every time one occurs.

Last year, Drake filed legal papers urging the case’s presiding judge to toss out the suit, claiming the Greenhouse already had a bad reputation and its liquor licence was once suspended due to a “string of violent incidents”.

NEWS: Mobb Deep Back Together Again [KingpinTV.net]

It’s official: Hip-hop duo Mobb Deep’s putting their beef on the back burner … and officially heading out on a 20th anniversary tour later this spring … TMZ has learned.

The duo — a.k.a. Havoc and Prodigy — were entwined in an intense rap feud ever since Havoc tore into Prodigy on Twitter … claiming among other things that Prodigy had engaged in a slew of jailhouse relationships during his 3-year stint in the slammer.

But now, the two rappers have let bygones be bygones … and recently announced they’re headed back on the road together. First stop? The Paid Dues festival in L.A. this March.

Sources close to the group say it’s just the first of many shows — and will act as the unofficial kickoff for their April world tour … where they’ll be celebrating 20 years as a group.

HIP HOP CLASSIC VIDEO: Kurious Jorge – “I’m Kurious” (1994) [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

Jorge Alvarez, better known as Kurious, is an East Coast underground hip hop artist.

Kurious is of Puerto Rican and Cuban descent, and grew up in a Upper Westside neighborhood called Manhattan Valley In NYC . He debuted in 1991 on Powerule’s “Young Stars from Nowhere”. He then appeared on Pete Nice and DJ Richie Rich’s album Dust to Dust. The duo helped Kurious get a record deal with Columbia Records via Bobbito and Pete Nice’s Hoppoh imprint. In 1992, he released his first single, “Walk Like a Duck”. In 1994, Kurious released his critically acclaimed debut album A Constipated Monkey, which featured the hit singles “I’m Kurious” and “Uptown shit”. The album was a modest commercial success and is considered a classic of golden era hip-hop.

Shortly after the album’s release, Kurious seemingly disappeared from the music scene. In 1999, he reemerged on MF DOOM’s album Operation: Doomsday on the track “?” and contributed a track to a Monsta Island Czars Mixtape, under the alias Biollante. Amalgam Digital reissued A Constipated Monkey with bonus tracks in 2007.  In 2009 he released his second solo effort II, which was a critical success and featured the singles “Back From Up Unda”, “Back with VIC”, “Sittin’ in My Car” and “Drinks In The Air.”

He presently works with aspiring high school rappers and musicians in New York City, helping them to perfect their craft and realize their dreams.

HIP HOP CLASSIC VIDEO: The Firm – “Firm Biz Remix” (1997) Live on Keenan Wayans [TekniqueTheKingpin*com]

The Firm was an American hip hop supergroup that formed in New York City in 1996. It was created by rapper Nas, his manager Steve Stoute, producer Dr. Dre and production team the Trackmasters. The group was composed of East Coast-based rappers Nas, Foxy Brown, AZ and Nature, who served as a replacement for Cormega after he was ousted from the group.
Although the group received initial hype and high expectations from fans upon their formation after collectively signing to Dr. Dre’s Aftermath label, The Firm’s debut album, The Album (1997), generated disappointing sales and generally negative criticism. The album, which featured predominant mafioso rap-themes and production from Dr. Dre and the Trackmasters, was criticized for its mainstream, pop-orientation. Their debut album was the group’s only release and it subsequently disbanded in 1998 with each member continuing their solo careers.
