Iggy Azalea has been recently bursting the Instagram with countless photos of her round big ass. She has left many men eagerly salivating with the nude photos posing in every available style and manner. Despite the fact many of her critics have pointed out that she is photoshopping her pictures she posts on Instagram, the celebrated singer is not giving a damn about it and has continued posting even more explicit photos.
Many of her fans love fantasizing about her much-exposed assets with others claiming that her ass is not natural accusing her of undergoing a plastic surgery to enhance her ass and make her waist tiny. The rapper has in the past admitted to undergoing breast augmentation but has not answered claims about her supposedly enhanced bottoms.
Her nude photos have been spreading on the Instagram-like wildfire with most of her followers giving suggestive comments about her intentions with the nude and erotic photos. A section of her followers claimed that she is probably attracting a suitor after she underwent a condensed moment way back in march. With these comments, we hope she will be up to it.
We all know what black smut is but do we know what black twitter is? Black Twitter is a cultural identity comprising the African-American Twitter users. In other words, it is a virtual community that addresses the issues of the black community. It originated from the black American members, hence strongest in America though it has gained popularity in Africa too especially in South Africa.
The first published comments on the black twitter were in the year 2008 by blogger Anil Dash. He developed the Twitter memes such as #BlackCelebsBeLike and #GrowingUpBlack. In the year 2010, the term gained popularity after Farhad Manjo wrote an article about how black people use black twitter. It was in the sense of his observation that young black people formed tight clusters and tended to follow and retweet each other more.
The main cause of the increased attention of the Black Twitter is the fight against racism. The community protested to companies selling products from Paula Deen, who was accused of racism. This and many more incidences of condemning racism have been the reason for the growth of the community.
The Kennedy Center released their seasonal announcements and named rapper Q-Tip as their first artistic director of hip hop culture. A founding member of the group A Tribe Called Quest, he is expected to begin curating performances this summer. According to the Kennedy Center’s press release, he will establish a program that reaches all disciplines by bringing the historic hip hop history to the Kennedy Center.
Nas was the first rapper to ever perform with the National Symphony Orchestra in 2014. Kendrick Lamar’s performance sold out last year and was an amazing performance. It’s exciting to know that hip hop is on the programming schedule for 2016. And it should be. Hip hop is a vital idiom and deserves a voice at the Kennedy Center.
Q-Tip noted that with the constant changes and elevation of hip hop that it is easy to forget the history of it. He wants people to have a better understanding of the journey, its present and create a powerful future. This new series, Hi-ARTS, will feature six events between July 2016 and June 2017.
Many rappers only scratch the surface of their true greatness. In their rhymes, Jay Z, Biggie, and even Kanye West have brilliantly tried to convey their dopeness. And for Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor, his dopeness existed perfectly with who he was. The 45 year old rapper from A Tribe Called Quest lost his battle with Type I diabetes on Wednesday.
Phife was short; only five feet tall. He was also a diabetic, however, he owned his shortcomings and turned them into lyrical genius. He talked about it and viewed himself as the best. He once said, “If I don’t say I;m the best, tell me who the hell will?”
Phife made his own place with A Tribe Called Quest – he never fell into Q-Tip’s shadow. The two had known each other since childhood and had their share of ugly moments. In a 2011 documentary, Beats, Rhymes & Life: The Travels of a Tribe Called Quest, it captured some of those moments – including a backstage blow-up at 2008 event. Phife was the only member of the group that attended the documentary’s premiere at Sundance. He openly cried and told the festival audience, “No MC can serve me.” That’s why Malik “Phife Dawg” Taylor was dope. Rest in peace.
Hip hop and basketball often go together like a hand and glove. Over the years, several rappers have forged friendships with NBA stars, even starting their own rap careers. It’s pretty safe to assume that most NBA stars are fans of rap and hip hop. Not so much for the greatest play of all time – Michael Jordan. According to rapper Noreaga, the former Chicago Bulls legend declared how much he hates hip hop at a Def Jam Christmas party.
Sure, the question arises – why was Michael Jordan at a hip hop party if he hates hip hop? Noreaga claims that rappers Redman and Method Man approached Jordan at the party but were ignored by him. Then he later announced to a group of fans that he was not a fan. The question remains – why was he there?
It was also reported that he only likes Jay Z and only spoke to him at the party. Allegedly, he was overheard making explicit remarks towards rap. The story has us asking questions of the NBA legend. We don’t want to believe that it’s true. However, Jordan has the freedom to feel the way he does. Say it isn’t so!
Donald Trump, the GOP presidential front-runner, was forced to cancel his Chicago rally on Friday after fights broke out between supporters and protesters.
At least five sections of the arena at the University of Illinois at Chicago were filled with protesters, and after consultations with local law enforcement, it was decided that the safety of the thousands of people at the venue needed to be protected.
Numerous fistfights broke out as the announcement was made and Chicago police had to intervene in order to detain and forcefully remove a handful of protesters. As police were clearing the arena, cries of “Trump!” And “Bernie!” could be heard among the crowds. The incident in Chicago seems to be the culmination of a growing rift between the supporters of Trump and his detractors who feel that the Trump campaign rhetoric incites hatred, violence and racism. Reports indicate that this was not a spontaneous outburst of violence. Protesters had apparently spent days planning the disruption, and they succeeded in their goal.
Trump’s closest rival in the GOP race is Sen. Ted Cruz, who is Trump’s closest rival in the race for the Republican nomination, told reporters “”When the candidate urges supporters to engage in physical violence, to punch people in the face, the predictable consequence of that is that it escalates. Today is unlikely to be the last such incident.” Cruz also commented that “in any campaign, responsibility starts at the top.” In turn, Trump has said that up until this incident in Chicago, the campaign has “never had much of a problem”. When asked by CNN’s Don Lemon if he had any regrets so far regarding his fiery campaign attitude, Trump responded “I don’t have regrets.” Trump also said, “These were very, very bad protesters. These were bad dudes. They were rough, tough guys.” Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has praised the Chicago police officers’ restraint and efforts under trying conditions. Later on Friday, The Trump campaign cancelled an event planned for Sunday in downtown Cincinnati.
Lately, rappers Drake and Meek Mill have dissed each other on several tracks. French Montana spoke on Larry King Now about his thoughts on the feud and that hey don’t have “a real problem”. It’s his belief that it is just a sport. French Montana compared their feud to sparring and pointed out that neither rapper has been harmed due to this beef. At the end of the day, it is just a competition. Nothing happens and nobody gets hurt. French Montana says that it conjures up excitement for the game.
It’s been almost 10 months since Meek Mill stated that Drake doesn’t write his own raps. And then the feud commenced. Disses are still being exchanged, including the rappers taking shots at each other at concerts. It appears that this feud will never end. They both want the other to know there is no love there. But why? Fans aren’t even sure anymore, particularly since Meek Mill used to like Drake. But now the rappers are on separate pages. Whatever else happens between them, we will be watching.
The record-breaking Broadway play Hamilton is loaded with uncertain historical facts and musical references to popular hip hop songs. Unfortunately, they go over the heads of those that can actually afford the tickets. Realizing this, a video was actually put together to explain the rap references in the show. A few of the references are obvious like “Ten Duel Commandments” spun from Notorious B.I.G’s 1997 song “Ten Crack Commandments”. It’s important that the audience understands dueling was a ritual back then.

Other references could be missed by even the most well-versed hip-hop fans. The refrain from “Meet Him Inside” was derived from DMX’s “Meet me outside” line from “Up In Here”. When the role of George Washington tells the audience, “You could have been anywhere in the world tonight, but you’re here with us in New York City” he is actually referencing Jay Z’s line from “Izzo (H.O.V.A.)” “You could have been anywhere in the world tonight, but you’re here with me and I appreciate that”.
The show has built a tremendous fan base and countless awards.

They have the power to influence fans and their opinions about presidential candidates is something to keep an eye on. No artist besides Killer Mike has outright supported a candidate yet, however this could change in the coming months.
