Ice Cube Speaks About the Rise of New LA Rap Talent

ice cube Ice Cube Speaks About the Rise of New LA Rap TalentGangsta rapper Ice Cube may have slowed down in his music production over the years due to his mid career lust for making Hollywood movies and comedy sitcoms, but the rap pioneer is still very much aware on what’s happening around the music world. In a recent interview with MTV, Cube was asked to give his opinion on the recent surge of Los Angeles MCs trying to break out on the mainstream rap scene. The Anaconda actor replied that while he thinks upcoming rappers are being deprived of some much deserved airplay, they are doing all the right things to get noticed.

The rapper Ice Cube, otherwise known as O’Shea Jackson, expressed his unhappiness with the current radio stations. Cube thinks that apart from stations like KDAY, others have stopped supporting the hip hop community like they used to do in the late 80s and early 90s when Cube got his big break with N.W.A.

The Game to Drop R.E.D. after Dr. Dre’s Drops His New Album

dr dre The Game to Drop R.E.D. after Dr. Dres Drops His New AlbumThese days, the Game is sporting the red color as a promo tool for his upcoming R.E.D. Album. On his upcoming song Red Nation, Lil Wayne, who has a liking for the color red, brought  the hook. MTV News hooked up with the Game on the set of his video shoot, and the Compton- born MC revealed how he got Weezy involved on this project.

“I called Wayne and I was like, ‘Yo I need you to kill this hook.’ He was like, ‘No problem,’ and he did his thing for me,” Game recalled.

The Game likes to record his guest artists’ material in the studios himself in his own presence, rather than receiving pre-recorded content through the internet or mail. However, he made an exemption for the Young Money boss. He explained that since Wayne was on the road for his ‘I Am Still Music’ tour and therefore it wasn’t feasible for him to meet the Game in his studio. Because both of them have worked together under one roof before he knew Wayne’s working style and was fully confident that the delivered material will be according to his liking.

90’s Hip-Hop Music

public enemy 90’s Hip Hop Music Hip-Hop, also known as rap, is a musical genre that was derived from the hip-hop culture. It originated in the 1970’s in The Bronx, New York. Hip-hop became a famous musical genre because it allowed the urban youth to freely express themselves. The 1990’s were the Golden Age of Hip-Hop in a way, so let’s take a look back at the 90’s and reminisce about this genre’s success during that era.

Hip-hop in the 90’s was all about expressing politically conscious views in a manner that was smooth and effortless and was assisted by soft bass beats and melodic synthesizers.

In the mid-90’s, a rapid change in the hip-hop culture occurred, and some of the purists saw it as degenerating to the hip-hop culture. This rapid change was the transition into “commercial hip-hop”. It was slowly deteriorating what the emcees in the 80’s built – a culture of music, creativity, artistry and dance wherein they expressed themselves and delivered a clear and positive message to the world. page go 90’s Hip Hop Music  Continue reading 90’s Hip-Hop Music »
