New York rapper Fabolous is accused of being involved in the murder of fellow Brooklyn rapper Greg "G-Baby" Brown last March. According to reports, sources are accusing Fab of playing a possible role in Baby's murder.
NYPD detectives aren't sure what role, if any, the Brooklyn rapper might have played in the March killing, but a surveillance video shows Fabolous leaving Club Amazura seconds before a mystery gunman blasted Greg (G-Baby) Brown in the back. "[Fabolous] is about to get in the car as the shooting goes down," said a police source who watched the video. Police and G-Baby's relatives say the rappers - both from Bedford-Stuyvesant - had a longstanding beef, though a source said they'd put it behind them. "My son was going to talk to Fab in a car, and he got shot three times," grieving mother Roxanne Brown said. "I don't know what's going on. I just want to know who killed my son." (New York Daily News)
The rapper was fatally shot at a Fabolous concert in mid-March.
Memphis Bleek protege, G Baby, was fatally shot in Queens two nights ago following Fabolous' gig at club Amazura. No arrests have been reported. Locally, the 22-year-old Brooklynite was making a name for himself with several collabos and viral videos. (Rap Radar)
Following his concert, Fabolous paid his respect to the late emcee.
"Life is not Promised.. Live Life to the fullest, & like there is no 2moro.. Lost a soldier in the field this morning.. R.I.P. G Baby," Fab wrote through Twitter on Saturday. (Fabolous' Twitter)
Memphis Bleek also reflected on the shooting's aftermath in March.
"I'm in mood I can't explain I lost a real n*gga 2day R.I.P to my n*gga who was like a bro to me!! G.BABY.. Love u G....," Bleek wrote on Twitter over the weekend. "2nite goes out for the baby boy G I got u my n*gg see u on the other side! Thx to those who showed me love...getlow we to strong to break!!" (Memphis Bleek's Twitter)

1. Cold Wind Blows- The intro worried me at first, but after listening to it again it became dope, and slightly eerie….in a good way. Love it now, and it sets up the track perfectly. Just Blaze comes with a banger of a beat and Eminem does not disappoint. It’s not my favorite song on the album, and its not as hard-hitting as some other Eminem CD openers such as White America and Kill you, but a solid track nonetheless, despite the horrible outro. (4/5)
2. Talkin' 2 Myself (Feat. Kobe)- Woah, when the snippet of this song first leaked I loved the hook but wondered how Eminem would rap over this beat. The cadence is not something he is used to, so I was shocked at how effortless Eminem sounded when I heard the full thing. I really appreciate the honesty slim shows here, even if I was a little disgusted that he said Lil Wayne and/or Kanye would have gotten him in a battle. The singing bridge into each verse is unnecessary, but it works, so I can’t complain there. The third verse steals the show and is one of the best on the album. “So I picked myself up off the ground, and fucking swam before I drowned
Hit my bottom so hard I bounced twice, advice this time around, It's different, them last 2 albums didn't count
Encore I was on drugs, Relapse I was flushing 'em out.” Perfect song. (5/5)
3. On Fire- Yes, this is the type of track that was missing on both Encore and Relapse. Eminem just spitting over a monster of a beat provided by Mr. Porter, and the punchlines are not corny as say the ones on Underground were on Relapse. “pull up in a van and hop out at a homeless man holdin a sign sayin
vietnam vet.. im out my fuckin mind man, kick over the can beat his ass and leave him 9 grand
so if i seem a little mean to you this aint savage you aint never seen the brew
you wanna get graphic we can go the scenic route....you couldnt make a belemic puke on a piece of fuckin corn and peanut poo.” And to make things better, there are no accents!!! The chorus is great, because of the hilarious adlibs. This song is basically Eminem asserting that no emcee is on his level when it comes to just straight rhyming. Marshall has his swag back. (4.5/5)
4. Won't Back Down(Feat. P!nk)- One of the songs I was really looking forward to, and I must say I was left disappointed. Em’s verses are tight, and Pink delivers on the hook, but I can’t get over the over the top beat. I don’t mind the hip hop/rock mash-ups, but this is a song I will probably skip when listening to Recovery in the future. (3/5)
5. W.T.P.- So I guess this is one of the more hated on songs from this album, and I just don’t get it. This is slim shady at his finest, taking a concept (club banger) and throwing his own little spin on it. The beat is pretty good, tho not great, but Eminem shreds each verse. While the hook is catchy, the way he explains his vehicle in the first verse is classic. “Pull up to the club in a Pinto likes it's a Porsche, Garbage bag on one of the windows
Spray-painted doors with the flames on 'em, Michigan plates and my name's on 'em.” Reminds me of ‘Cum on Everybody’ off the SSLP. (4/5)
6. Going Through Changes- Immediately became my favorite song on the album, and in my opinion this is one of Eminem’s top 10 songs ever. While everyone loves the slim shady, rapid fire lyricisim from Marshall, it is his introspective and emotional tracks that really separate him from other artists. The Ozzy sample is used to absolute perfection. The 4th verse really hits home (yes, you get FOUR verses), and is something I’m sure a lot of people can relate to.
“Hailie this one is for you, Whitney and Alaina too,
I still love your mother, that'll never change,
Think about her every day, we just could never get it together.
Hey, wish there was a better way, for me to say it,
But I swear on everything, I'd do anything for her on anyday.
There are just too many things, to explain, when it rains,
Guess it pours, yes it does, wish there wasn't any pain.
But I can't pretend there ain't, I ain't placin' any blame,
I ain't pointin' fingers, heaven knows there never been a saint.
I know it just feels like we just pissed away our history,
But just today, I looked at your picture, almost hate to say,
I miss you self consciously, wish it didn't end this way.
But I just had to get away, don't know why,
I don't know what else to say, I guess I'm..”
Great stuff, Marshall. (5/5)
7. Not Afraid- It’s always tough to rate first singles, because they usually become overplayed and after-thoughts when compared to the rest of an LP. There are some horrendous punchlines here, and Eminem’s singing bridge before the third verse is corny as fuck, but overall this song works. It’s not as legendary as Lose Yourself (Despite my opinion that Eminem was trying to create a Lose Yourself part two) but it’s certainly a good song. (4/5)
8. Seduction- Here is where I believe the album really picks up. Let me just state briefly that this beat is phenomenal. Boi-1nda blessed the shit out of Eminem with that tremendous sample at the beginning, and of course Marshall doesn’t disappoint. It’s already being debated who Slim is addressing in this song, but whoever or whatever it is doesn’t matter. There may even be a shot at Jay-Z in the second verse (AUH!). I don’t care either way. This song is perfect. (5/5)

As the Co Founder of Thacorner.net I definitely see my fair share of new music. Every day I cycle through at least 20-25 new tracks from popular artists. After awhile it gets to the point where if you aren’t interested by the first 16 bars...its on to the next one as hip hop has become so redundant, plastic, and similar sounding that its rare to hear something truly unique.
When I first came across the song “Hoes on my Dick Because I Look Like Jesus”, I was at a loss for words and not in a good way. The lyricism was so terrible and hilarious that it almost seemed intentionally bad and a farce. I thought to myself, “yup…Hip Hop is over”, but if only I knew just how wrong I was. Over the next few days I heard a few more “freestyles” by Lil B, each one twice as ludicrous and funny as the previous until I ran across one titled “I Am The Hood”. This particular track completely stuck out from the rest as Lil B was speaking coherently, utilizing a traditional rap verse structure…and actually sounded good. A sucker for a good perplexing mystery, this back and forth from utterly horrendous lyrics and cadence to sonically pleasing ones interested me a great deal as I couldn’t grasp how an artist could go from “Pretty Bitch” to “Age of Information” without skipping a beat, not to mention that Lil B took a major risk and referred to himself as among other things as a “pretty bitch”, “fag”, “lesbian”, and “princess”…as well as “God”.
So as will seem rather ironic shortly, I headed to Google and Youtube without thinking twice, in a quest to unravel this mystery. The more I heard and read, the more confused I got. I thought to myself “what the hell is this “BASED” he keeps referring to, “why would Soulja Boy sign an artist who puts out songs of the caliber of “Pretty Bitch”, and “why does he keep calling himself God!”. I tried listening to some of his more coherent songs again and again, attempting to pick up on themes or concepts that might enlighten me a bit as it seemed to me as if Lil B had started a cult of sorts. Everywhere I went online I was met by two types of commentary- A. This guy is on heavy drugs, mentally retarded and killing Hip Hop or B. This guy is a genius and pure hip hop. The two commentaries seemed diametrically opposed, further perplexing me and causing me to look deeper and deeper into this whole issue.
As I got more and more confused, I finally said “Fuck It…people keep saying this dude must be on some heavy drugs in order to make this kind of music, so Im bout to get drunk and see if this shit makes anymore sense to me.” I figured, maybe if I get intoxicated, essentially shutting off my frontal lobe, which is what makes humans think “logically”, I’ll be able to grasp what the hell is going on here. In other words, in order to comprehend the seemingly illogical, one must think illogically. So I headed to the liquor store and copped a fifth of Remy Martin XO and two 2 liters of Cherry Choke and headed home to get torn the fuck up.
Back at the crib, I poured me up a glass, turned on some Lil B videos and proceeded to get trashed. Within minutes, the haze of logic actually receded and unbelievably Lil B started making sense to me. It was an epiphany of sorts as It allowed me to not only look at his music in a different light, but music in general as well as life as a whole. Almost instantly, Lil B’s “ramblings” started making perfect sense, his BASED freestyles started to become understandable, and the BASED philosophy itself was opened up to me. His BASED freestyles were still horrible in the modern eye of hip hop but once looked at through the BASED philosophy they became miniature works of free spirited, free flowing art. The same concept employed by psychic Edgar Cayce was being utilized by Lil B, just with a Hip Hop twist-unadulterated, subconscious thought, free from constraint and ridicule. Does it make the lyrics seem strange, or weird , or repetitive? Of course, but that is the beauty of it. You are peering literally into your subconscious, delving into the depths of your true self and bringing that entity out for the world to see. If you repeat “bitch suck my nuts” 15 times within 4 minutes, more than likely you have a fetish for having your testicles in a chick’s mouth.
What previously seemed like anti-technological rants over catchy beats now seemed like gospel. The information age truly has affected and changed us…but is it for better or worse? With all of our technological advancements, why haven’t we as a race evolved or bettered ourselves? We can literally talk to people 20,000 miles away…yet we use this tool to describe the bologna sandwich we are eating…and in 140 characters or less.
Lil B’s philosophy on life is reminiscent of the Hippie movement of the 1960’s, where the social norm is to be challenged in the pursuit of physical and spiritual happiness. Now his peculiar references to himself as a “fag”, “lesbian”, “princess”, etc… made sense. By challenging these societal constraints you actually transcend them and strip from them any negativity they may have previously possessed. By creating music purely for self satisfaction and void of preconceived expectations, it becomes irrelevant whether they are received in a positive or negative light. Lil B essentially took Hip Hop back to its roots of a medium for self expression and entertainment, directly opposite of the modern commercial Hip Hop focused on negative themes, machismo, and competitiveness. Is Lil B the best rapper..of course not, but who cares? The whole point of BASED freestyles is to “Not Give A Fuck” and enjoy the moment.
In direct opposition of the norm of “supremacy” within Hip Hop, Lil B professes that we are all “Gods” or basically equal in importance and dominance. This outlook is further extrapolated by Lil B in his BASED movement, which focuses on positive energy and edification of each other although like any human soul, he isn’t without flaws. Yes he has his positive, peaceful musings on the one end but on the other end exist the profane, oft crude elements of some of his BASED freestyles, a testament to the eternal quest of Good trumping Evil. He doesn’t hide from this fact that himself, as well as us all are flawed, in fact he embraces is and states how it is only an example of how far we have come and how far we have left to go.
Before I picked up that bottle of Remy Martin XO I was a confounded critic of the entire Lil B/ BASEDGOD movement but after freeing my logic and allowing myself to open up cognitively and not think like we as adults are trained to-I became a BASED Believer. Lil b is truly onto something here with this and Im glad he is BASED enough to take the necessary risks to bring the true essence of hip hop back.

In terms of buzz and marketability, there hasnt been a hip hop artist like Drake since 50 Cent, and we all know just how popular 50's debut classic was. In the confidently titled Thank Me Later debut of Drake, we are offered more of Aubrey Graham's autobiographical and eclectically R & B tinged musical offerings and I must say-he doesnt disappoint. True to his word, Drake's debut album Thank Me Later plays almost like a verbal memoir of sorts, covering subjects from his abrupt rise to fame, the woe associated with stardom, relationship problems and family issues. Whereas most rappers generally seemed forced when making boastful statements, surprisingly Drake seems rather sincere when speaking on subjects such as women, money, and the music industry at large.
Thank Me Later opens up with "fireworks" rather literally. The intro tracked co-produced by extremely popular German producer Crada and Drake's longtime producer Noah "40" Shebib features both Drake and Alicia Keys on the hook as Drake speaks on his main subjects of impending stardom, heartache, and longing for love.
Next in line comes "Karaoke", a keyboard accompanied track produced by the band "Francis and The Lights". As has become a natural characteristic of Drake's music, it seems as if he is speaking face to face to the unnamed female subject of the track. Whereas most artists choose to relay stories in third person, Drake meets subjects head on in first person which adds to the sincerity of his musings.
After a sultry R&B track and a "pop" sounding song, Drake offers the emotionally laced "The Resistance", within which he states "I heard they just moved my grandma to a nursing home/ and I be acting like I dont know how to work a phone/ but hit redial and you'll see I just called some chick i just met at the mall/ that I barely know at all/ plus this woman I messed with unprotected/ text me saying she wished she had of kept it/ the one I'm laying next to looked over and read it/.
After taking a second to reminisce on life experiences, Drake jumps right into the album's first single "Over", the catchy single he uses as a vehicle to prophetically proclaim his impending longevity within the hip hop industry. Following "Over" comes up the funky, Euro sounding and piano accompanied Kanye produced track "Show Me A Good Time". This track once again has Drake visiting his oft repeated themes of unexpected success, women, and living his new found life.
"Up All Night" offers the first rap feature of the album, courtesy of Mrs. Barbie herself and fellow Young Money label mate-Nicki Minaj. The track features Drake on the hook, something he does quite frequently and effortlessly without making it sound overdone. Nicki offers a pretty good verse while sounding eerily like a mid 90's Lil Kim. Halfway through the album we are greeted by recently released T.I. on the Swizz Beatz produced "Fancy". On the mellow song we are offered a solid guest spot by T.I., while drake brings his own brand of wittiness to the ode to "fancy girls" in order to prevent from being out shined by the "king of the south".
The second singing collabo of the album takes place next on the Omen and 40 produced "Shut It Down" as Drake and The Dream come together to bring the album its obligatory slow jam. As is the case with "Fireworks", Drake sings the hook as well as offers a rap verse to make for a good R&B track although it seems as if The Dream went out of his way to make the track his own.
Drake brings the corporate thug himself to the Aaliyah sampled "unforgettable" as Drake speaks on relationships and Jeezy slows it down a bit to offer his unique personification of the Trap game.
Light Up brings with it easily the most anticipated collabo of the album, that of the "God MC" himself Jay Z. Drake again touches on his newly acquired life, seemingly approving and critiquing it simultaneously before Jay offers up "triple entendres" on a relatively short verse. Whether Drake brought his lyrical "A" game or Hov took it easy on the clean cut newcomer is debatable but Drake clearly holds his own against Mr. Carter. The inevitable Drake/Lil wayne collaboration and third single follows next with Drake relaying an energetic and cocky verse as Wayne breezes through one of the best verses on the album although he stops short of completely out shining Drizzy on "Miss Me".
Following up on "Bria's Interlude" from So Far Gone comes "Cece's Interlude", where he again seems to be speaking directly to "CeCe" about topics ranging from his success, their relationship, and night time endeavors while guitar riffs play in the background. "Find Your Love", the second single of the album is in and of itself a good track but sounds like something crafted for Chris Brown and given to Drake to add more potential radio presence to the album.The album is brought to an end on the Timbaland produced "Thank Me Now", Drake's cocky self proclamation to "living out a dream" and officially putting his mark on the industry while simultaneously accepting un named kudos from "everyone".
With the buzz and popularity of 50 Cent and the musical sincerity of Kanye West, it seems only fitting that Thank Me Later is the best debut album from a hip hop artists since the previously mentioned two artists. Although the tracklisting alone would make one expect Drake to get drowned out of his own album, he employs a creative tactic of singing on nearly every hook to ensure his prominence as well as standing toe to toe with Jeezy, Jay Z,T.I, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj lyrically and Alicia Keys and The Dream from an R&B standpoint. Furthermore, with production credits from the likes of Kanye, Swizz Beatz, Timbaland, No ID, 40, and Boi 1Da among others, Drake is able to use a relatively short tracklisting full of good beats to make the album thoroughly enjoyable. Although the album is ground breaking by no means, it is thoroughly entertaining and a breath of fresh air in an industry being submerged in drug laden ballads to illegal activities and unsubstantiated claims of uber wealth. Drake isnt the best in the game lyrically and needs to expand his subject matter in the future but he is surely staking his claim to own some market share of the game for years to come.

R&B singer Alicia Keys is officially off the market after announcing being pregnant with her first child from soon-to-be husband/producer Swizz Beatz. According to new reports, the hip-hop couple will officially wed later this year.
Alicia Keys is in a motherhood state of mind: She's pregnant with her first child. The Grammy Award-winning R&B singer has been dating producer Swizz Beatz, who has written hits for Beyonce (bee-AHN'-say), Jay-Z and others. They're engaged to be married at a private ceremony later this year. Representatives for the couple confirmed the news Thursday night. (Associated Press)
Beatz's ex-wife, Mashonda, recently filed a lawsuit against the producer in New York.
In papers filed in Manhattan Supreme Court, Mashonda Dean says the man who officially became her ex-husband two weeks ago already owes her $334,000 in missed payments. "I so much wanted both of us to get on with our lives and maintain our respect for one another, but he now shows that his priorities and sense of responsibility are screwed up," R&B singer Dean said. Dean's lawyer, Bernard Clair, called the nonpayment "particularly troubling" because of reports that Beatz bought a seven-carat engagement ring for Alicia Keys earlier this year and that they're moving into a $14.5 million duplex penthouse on Crosby Street. (NY Post)
However, Beatz has defended himself and refuted his ex-wife's claims.
He said he'd agreed to pay Dean more than the judge required and much more than his lawyer recommended -- he even had to sign court papers acknowledging that he was going against his attorney's advice. "I gave over what the judge was recommending to give. I gave her $700,000 up front, because I thought $200,000 wasn't enough for what she wanted to do. I still get spit in my face for it," he said. He suggested that the subsequent payments had been ready to go when he discovered "she'd been selling all my stuff out of my house." (NY Post)
Beatz recently spoke on his divorce from Mashonda.
"I don't got a wife no more," Swizz told radio personality DJ Enuff. "I'm 99 percent done, 99 percent. You lucky, you lucky I'm telling you. I'm lucky in a lot of ways, also, with my divorce but it's like the hardest thing I've ever been through. By far. You know what I'm saying? But it was a learning experience. The thing that upset me the most was the approach from the other side, it didn't have to be like that because it's false. It's like false things and having the wrong people around. Pumping yourself thinking you're gonna get a TV show off of so-called exposing. It's like clown things and it's, like, I'm always quiet with this sh*t. I can't answer, I can't even feed into because it's that much foolery to me...The reason why I got my divorce is for real sh*t. I didn't get busted cheating, it wasn't none of that. I had to, I got put into a situation where she was making me pick the relationship with my older son over my marriage."

G-Unit leader 50 Cent explained his decision to lose over 50 pounds for his upcoming Things Fall Apart movie. According to 50, his shocking weight-loss was inspired by a friend who experienced cancer.
"It's about a Heisman hopeful who could possibly be going to the league and everyone is assuming he's gonna make it and then he's hit with an illness," 50 explained in an interview. "I had a friend of mine who actually experienced cancer and it's what motivated me to write this screenplay. You don't have to make everything personal, but that project was. That's why I committed to playing a role where I lost 54 pounds. I had to discipline myself enough until I achieved it but... I got it. (Cleveland News)
Photographic evidence of the dropped weight hit the Internet yesterday (May 26).
50 Cent lost a lot of weight for his upcoming movie "Things Fall Apart". In the movie 50 Cent plays a football player diagnosed with cancer. He dropped from 214 pounds to an astonishing 160 with a liquid diet and three-hour-a-day treadmill walks for nine weeks. "I was starving." Now he's back on tour and says, "I've been eating. I'll be back in shape in no time!" (This Is 50)
G-Unit's Lloyd Banks confirmed 50's weight-loss last month.
"He did lose a lot of weight, man," Banks revealed in an interview with DJ Envy. "Like a good 40, 45 pounds. And I was around him everyday, so you didn't see it as much as people did but when I seen the pictures, it's affected everything. He's crazy, it's non-stop working, running ten miles, all that Universal Solider sh*t. He's in shape man, but he's been on icees man. All he ate was icees since February 23rd. And I ain't seen him, not sure if he cheated or not, all I seen was freezers of icees and I eat in front of him. KFC, Burger King." ("Sucker Free Sundays")
Recent reports suggested that he lost weight and removed body art to help with his acting career.
50 Cent is making moves to further his career in the film industry. The rapper is making a serious transition into acting, and has committed to removing some of his tattoos for an upcoming role in the film Things Fall Apart, which he co-wrote and produced. In addition Fif will lose 50 pounds for the on-screen feature. (Hip Hop Honey)

Given the widespread imprint of Hip Hop on mainstream Pop music, specifically in the past decade, somehow "underground artist" became a dirty word in music business circles. The term "independent" became the new euphemism, finally allowing indie artists to highlight their business acumen as boldly as their often slept-on talent.
Fortunately, Virginia native Nickelus F is clear on how to stand out amongst the masses, and neither the purist underground or international mainstream are off limits for him. A champion of The Source Unsigned Hype Emcee Battle and BET's 106 & Park Freestyle Friday, the gifted lyricist has developed his powerful wordplay into songs that music fans not only appreciate... they demand!
With the May 31, 2010 release of his street album Season Premiere, Nickelus F will offer his worldwide fanbase a look into world views and pop culture through his eyes. Of course, experience plays a role in good songwriting, and the young MC is no stranger to controversy. Through overcoming personal challenges and streamlining business practices, Nick has firmly taken control of his destiny.
Throughout his career, Nickelus F has worked tirelessly with his peers to innovate new sounds, namely Drake, who cites Nick as an influence to his own standout career. On his personal blog, Drake said of Nick: "This dude is a huge influence and basically the reason I started rapping. I consider him family and I thank him for everything he's done for me."
Nickelus F's creative partners have also included producers like Boi-1da (Eminem, Lil Wayne, Maino, Drake, Jeezy), Lab Ox (50 Cent, Rihanna, Drake), M.Rell (G-Unit, Jim Jones) and Bei Maejor (Trey Songz, Soulja Boy, Bun B). Experimentation and persistence pay off in 2010, as Season Premiere serves up a health dose of Nick's witty idealism.
"Season Premiere is music to live life to," Nick asserts. " There's catchy hooks, quality production and plenty of food for thought. Everyone that helped in making the album is hungry and highly motivated. They carry the same message in their lives that I try to convey. I've always been creative with my lyrics, but this time I've decided use my creativity to convey a real message that people can relate to, and maybe learn from with each listen. Overall it's just good heartfelt music."
Nick cites "Fueled Up" as the pace-setting track for the 'raw emotion and energy' throughout Season Premiere, and "On My Sh*t" as one of his best hooks to date. Although choosing one is difficult, one of Nick's personal favorites is the title track "Season Premiere" because of its straight-forward, in-your-face approach. With this body of work, Nickelus F is poised to move forward with renewed confidence in his future.
"As an artist I've matured and I've specialized, and there is more vision behind my music now. I'm about motivating people to do what's in their hearts. We have one life… Why not live it doing and pursuing something you love?"
