the-game-news-article716121

Earlier this year, The Game announced that The Documentary 2 will be released June 30, 2015.  Recently The Game unveiled a trailer for “The Making of The Documentary 2, Part II.” The trailer takes a look at the culture that appears to be in a current State of Emergency. In a time of social unrest, Reel Culture Media takes a stand in solidarity with the revolutionaries, activists, and protesters of today. The social justice system has failed our generation time and time again, and police brutality has reached a fever pitch. When your neighborhood becomes a warzone, and it is your friends and family being gunned down by the police, who’s side will you take? In this short trailer for “The Making of The Documentary 2, Part II” we explore both sides of the conflict; will you have peace, or will you rise against oppression with force? The choice is yours.

  

Yesterday The Game was arrested as he turned himself in to the Los Angeles Police Department for allegedly throwing a punch at an off-duty officer during at a pickup basketball game in March. The incident was caught on video and posted online. The Game posted $50,000 bail about an hour later.  

Be on the lookout for The Documentary 2 6/30/15.

commas-remix

So far this year we have heard a lot of good music by some of our favorite artists. Included in the best of 2015 is Future’s “Commas,” which is most definitely one of this year’s standout tracks. “Commas” originally appeared on Future’s 2014 mixtape, Monster, and has continued to make waves ever since.  Now for your listening pleasures Future has decided to remix the official single.  

Future enlists the help of MMG’s Rick Ross and Roc Nation’s Big Sean for the remix. Both emcees blessed the Southside’s instrumental and have officially just added some commas somewhere.  The remix doesn’t give us any new verses from Future, but how can you go wrong with adding Big Sean and Rick Ross to your already certified banger?  Check out the “Commas” remix below and let us know what you think.

[Hip Hop News Now] Jay Z Reunites With Roc-A-Fella, Disses Spotify and YouTube

roc-reunion

The long awaited reunion of Roc-A-Fella took place last night at Jay Z’s 2-night special event, Tidal B-Sides.  The very special event took place in hope to silence the critics of Jay Z’s new streaming service, Tidal.  The new platform has been under fire since its launch just a few months ago.  Hov has been standing strong on his defense of Tidal and has even taken to social media to quiet the haters.  At this point it was time for Jay Z to start exhibiting why he is in a lane all by himself.  

Screen Shot 2015-05-17 at 2.20.58 PM

Last night’s Tidal B-Sides event was epic as Hova performed a set of songs he rarely performs and artists like Beanie Sigel, Freeway, Memphis Bleek, and the Young Gunz joined him on stage to solidify the event.  With the big lights and all eyes on Jay Z last night he took the time to release a new freestyle in which he ripped Spotify and Youtube apart.  Check out the freestyle below and stay tuned for details to Tidal B-Sides’ night 2.

[Hot New Music!] DJ Khaled feat. Chris Brown, Lil Wayne, and Big Sean – “How Many Times”

DJ Khaled

Mr. We The Best is back!  DJ Khaled delivers a new banger featuring vocals by Chris Brown, with Lil Wayne and Big Sean dropping dope verses on the new Lee On The Beats-produced track.  The track is titled “How Many Times” and is the lead single from Khaled’s forthcoming album I Changed A Lot, which is scheduled for release later on this year.

The new track is an aggressive one with each artist asking “How many times I got to tell that p*ssy to come over?”  This song is direct and to the point, and may just be the track that sets the tone for this upcoming summer.  You be the judge.  “How Many Times” will you press play?
