MEEK MILL SISTER GIVES THEM BARS

Congress and the Fight on Cannibus

It’s been a long, ongoing fight for Marijuana Legalization in the US. From the moment Richard Nixon created the DEA and scheduled Marijuana as a Schedule I drug, there have been nothing but bad things to come to users. Let’s face it marijuana is a medicine, and as much as some of us want to believe it isn’t, there’s proof. Recently, the war on marijuana has been winding down due to states decriminalizing and using it recreationally. States like Colorado, Oregon, and California have made it possible to purchase marijuana in a store. However, Congress had not decriminalized weed. It is still illegal, under federal law, to possess weed.

Now lets think, if we decriminalize weed in this country that would lead to an enormous amount of change. For one, there will be a lot of offenders released from prison for their nonviolent drug crime. If it is no longer a crime to possess, sell, or purchases marijuana jails would be emptying left and right. Congress would also have to admit that marijuana is actually a drug that can be used medicinally. We’ve already had laws pass that protect the use and prescribing of marijuana in medicinal states like New Jersey [woot woot], New York, and DC. Yes y’all, I know DC isn’t a state nevertheless, medical marijuana is legal there too.

I believe this will be able to change the climate in the war on drugs. Leave your thought and comments here. Check out an article here on marijuana http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/07/dea-marijuana-120674_Page3.html#.VbuctEIyM5c

MEEK CLAPS BACK WITH WANNA KN0W

Finally after a week long wait, Meek Mill released his highly anticipated response to Drake’s two diss tracks Charged Up and Back 2 Back. Meek shed light on the ghostwriting even featuring the reference of Quentin Miller for the song Know Yourself. Continually letting it be known that Drake may not be responsible for the bars on these diss tracks, but instead being a “milli vanilli” as Meek said.

 

I have to say, I’m a fan of Drake but this, to me, was a dope attempt. However, Drake may not have felt the same way.

Drake Releases Back to Back Freestyle: Cover Art Is EVERYTHING!

Fresh off the constant tweets of Meek Mill, Drake releases his second diss track called Back to Back! This is a follow up to Charged Up he released just four days ago. He also reminds Meek that he “hasn’t done anything about the other one”! This is in regards to Meek not responding with a  track. I have to say I’m happy Drake is keeping it on wax. We haven’t had a great rap beef since Ray J and Fab lol .

 So the score is

Drake: 2 Diss Tracks

Meek Mill: 200 Tweets

I’m a fan of Drake and Meek, but I have to admit the diss records that came out prior to now like Hit em up, Ether, Takeover, and classic The Bridge is over are way better lyrically. With the score being what it is, we have to see what Meek will do. Remember Ether came out two months post Takeover. A little fun fact about Drakes Cover Art. Picture is Toronto Blue Jay Joe Carter hitting a walk off home run to win the ’93 World series over the Philadelphia Phillies.

Drake was that a read?! Lol Meek your up!

Rihanna Blocked From Benefit Concert In Baltimore

During a time of racial tension in the United States, a celebrity wanting to do a free benefit concert would be praised. However, that is not the case with Rihanna who was blocked by the City of Baltimore for attempting to do so. In light of the Freddie Gray incident Rihanna chose that city to give back to because the disparaging times called for hope and change. She also wanted to protest peacefully in the streets with the residents that she hoped to inspire in some way. It would give the city a sense of “someone cares for me”, but in the absence of a permit she was unable to do so.

The City of Baltimore, however, gave Prince the opportunity to do a benefit concert which turned out great. Baltimore is filled with young people that could have related to Rihanna, and for one day, could have had peace in their city.

#MCM E Solo sings Just Gotta Make It

The first time I saw this cutie come across my newsfeed, I was like he is sooooo silly! He was recorded in the subway with a few friends singing an original called “Suck My D!#$”. He fancies himself a dancer, one who has gotten the art of breakdance down to a science! He is showing that he can actually explore other career paths in entertainment. My #MCM today is a handsome,              dancer that happens to sing E Solo! Here singing Trey Songz first joint, Just Gotta Make It.

Styles P Talks About His Daughter’s Death

Suicide is a real thing! Many believe, that it doesn’t affect the black community. It’s so taboo, that its rarely spoken about. More recently we’ve had suicide as a back drop in the black community when stars like Don Cornelius, Lee Thompson Young, the incomparable Chris Lighty, and the creator of For Black Girls blog Karyn Washington. More recently, Lox alumni Styles P open up about his daughter’s suicide. If you or someone you know is struggling with depression or suicidal thoughts, please do not hesitate to call National Suicide Prevention Hotline 1-800-273-8255. We are sending our prayers and condolences as Styles P and family get through this time of grief.

I rarely speak on my personal issues and i usually express my pain the through music but today I will share a little with you last month my wife and I lost a daughter and my son lost a sister . My baby girl took her life and there are no words to describe the day to day pain we have to endure and maintain through but in dealing with pain you find yourself dealing with the creator and asking questions and going through emotions most would not understand. So I’m taking this time out to express a few things to y’all because life is short and we are not promised tomorrow. I like to deal with simple math I know I am 180- 180+ but im trying my best to live on the positive side of things . I have truly tried to live up to the code of being a gentleman and gangster to fullest of my ability. I have been chasing the dollar bill since I was 12 years old I hustled I worked legal jobs and even manage to make my dream of making it as a rapper come true I have popped bottles before it was the thing to do , I have owned beamers, benzos , rovers, trucks etc etc etc I have lived in the ritz ,owned condos , houses traveled a lot of places etc etc etc but I can honestly tell you don’t none of that shit add up or equal to love!! I have lost my brother , father , aunt , grandmother in law and too many good friends/ brothers and now my daughter!!!! But the only thing that can be done is to leave it in the creators hands . But I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t take this time out to say from the most humbled part of my heart and soul to say to yall that the dream most of us chase is not !!I repeat is not !!more valuable than the love you get from your family and friends it may seem like it is but it ain’t they print money and make material shit everyday but once you used a love one that’s it the spirit is with you but you will miss the physical and Won’t be able to speak to them how you want to until you get home to the other side. So I just want to tell yall keep it family 1st and don’t get lost and lose your focus the fam is way more important than anything else …. We lost a daughter but gained an angel . Love is love ..ghost
