Is Bobby Shmurda a Gangster or Simply “Guilty for Where I Live”?

3 May 2015 6:00 PM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

East Flatbush, Brooklyn, is where the city named a street after Bob Marley; where the rappers Busta Rhymes and Shyne and Joey Bada$$ came from; where one intersection is called the Front Page for its high-profile murders and another the Back Page because its murders get less press. It’s also where a young rapper named Ackquille Pollard grew up, in the shabby prewar apartment complex at 139 East 53rd Street, on the outer reaches of Clarkson Avenue.When Pollard was a kid, the courtyard soundtrack, furnished by a boom box, mixed 50 Cent and Lil Wayne and Trick Daddy with West Indian dancehall and R&B. Ackquille and his friends would hang out there and practice rhymes. Everyone had a nickname. Javase, his older brother, was Jaja. Another pair of brothers in the building, the local basketball stars Chad and Remy Marshall, were Rowdy and Fetti. From down the block came »

Raekwon Picks His 10 Best Songs

28 April 2015 9:00 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Since 2015 is shaping up to be a year full of Wu-Tang Clan solo joints (Ghostface Killah has already released Sour Soul, while Method Man, Gza, and Inspectah Deck will come out with theirs later in the year), can you think of a better time for Raekwon to release his first album in five years? Titled Fly International Luxurious Art (F.I.L.A. for short), the mafioso rap progenitor does his thing alongside such guest stars as Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky, and, yes, Ghostface Killah. As his latest album drops today (and with the 20th anniversary of his landmark debut Only Built 4 Cuban Linx … coming later this year), we asked the 45-year-old Staten Island–bred hip-hop veteran about the best tracks he’s done so far in his career.  “Eye for a Eye (Your Beef Is Mines)” by Mobb Deep feat. Nas & Raekwon, from The Infamous »

SXSW 2015: Hollywood Heads to Austin for Annual Festivities

20 March 2015 5:50 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hollywood headed down south for the 2015 SXSW film, interactive and music festival in Austin, Texas, for the annual 10-day event, which wraps up on March 22.

SXSW kicked off on Friday the 13th, very fittingly with a haunted house party, hosted by Wgn America’s supernatural thriller “Salem.”

“No one wants to go up those flights of stairs over and over and over again. Once you’re up, you kind of just stay here,” star Shane West joked about the jam-packed rooftop soireé, which was complete with aerialists (a.k.a. levitating enchantresses) and apothecaries — better known as multiple bars — as he sipped on a cocktail.

“It’s funky-town,” new cast member Lucy Lawless told Variety, hours after arriving at SXSW with her co-stars (the entire “Salem” cast took a six-hour road trip together from their Shreveport, La., set to Austin, thanks to their flights being canceled at the last minute). “[Austin] has got so much character. »

Kanye Wasn't the Only One 'Beaten by a Girl'! 13 Other Times Nicki Minaj Stole the Song

3 March 2015 12:54 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

No one would disagree with Kanye West that the most memorable part of his 2010 song “Monster,” more so than himself or Jay Z or Rick Ross, is Nicki Minaj. The way he said it though...

“The fact that she kicked my ass, on my own song,” Kanye said during a lecture at Oxford University (via The Tab Oxford). “On one of the best albums, the best album -- I’m just saying what the critics said -- of the last 25 years. The best album of the past 25 years that I spent a year and a half making.”

“To come back and deliver my magnum opus of a work, and to be outshined,” he said. “To be beat by a girl, basically.” We guess that’s a compliment. But “beat by a girl,” Kanye? In 2015, Kanye? C’mon, Kanye.

Missy Elliott's 17 Most Important Contributions to Society

3 February 2015 4:49 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Don’t call it a comeback, Missy’s been here for years. Seriously, don’t call Missy Elliott’s flaw-free Super Bowl performance a comeback. The five-time Grammy winning First Lady of Hip-Hop, Hip-Hop Heavyweight, Puff Mommy, Queen of the Beats, Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliott has made some of the most important contributions to society in recent years.

Relive them all now, or educate yourself for the first time. You’re welcome.

1. This is her first hit, “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” and it changed the game.

2. We saw Missy wearing a trash bag in the video so we wore trash bags.

3. And that trash bag also inspired one of the funniest bits on Broad City.

4. Then there was “Get Ur Freak On,” which played at every middle school dance from 2001 until 2006. Who knows how many tweens grinded for the first time to this classic?
