[Hip Hop News Now] Journalist Speaks on his Industry Experiences, Shares Advice, and More

Philadelphia emcee Journalist is a rapper who has been around the block a couple of times. We recently caught up with the Hip Hop vet and he opened up to us about his rap career and so much more. It was great to see the emcee get candid when speaking about the advice he had for others who are trying to make their way onto the Hip Hop scene.

Journalist took time while in the studio to not only give some great advice, but to also talk about his time with the legendary Motown Records, his relationship with fellow wordsmith Canibus, and what he’s up to now.

Check out this exclusive interview with “Phillies Own” Journalist and be sure to share your thoughts below.

[Hot New Music!] Gillie Da Kid feat. Boosie Badazz – “I’m Da Man”

imdaman

Philadelphia rapper Gillie Da Kid is back with a certified banger titled “Im Da Man” featuring Baton Rouge native Boosie Badazz. The self-proclaimed “King of Philly” hops on the Coney Gurl produced beat and slays it. Late last year, Gillie released his first ever album entitled, Welcome 2 Gilladelphia. Now the “King of Philly” is back to follow up that album with some heat for these winter days. 

There is surely more to come from Gillie as the buzz surrounding him gets louder with each day that passes. More singles, probably a new mixtape, and possibly a new album. We can’t say what is to come for sure, but we will take what we can get. Check out the new one from Gillie Da Kid featuring Boosie Badazz below.

[Hot New Music!] Drake – “Back To Back” Freestyle (Meek Mill Diss)

drake-looking-back

Drake is bringing it to “Back to Back” on Meek Mill with his latest diss track. The “Back to Back” freestyle is a problem and Hip Hop listeners are now waiting in great anticipation for Meek to bring the solution.  By now, everyone is in the loop on this Hip Hop beef, but here is a quick run down.  

  1. *Last week, Meek accused Drake of having a ghost writer.
  2. Over the weekend, Drake responded by dropping “Charged Up” diss.
  3. Meek called the diss, “Baby lotion soft.”
  4. Monday, Meek was scheduled to drop a diss track via Hot 97, but he never did.
  5. The Pinkprint Tour hit Toronto, Meek hit the stage with the words “F*ck You” on the screen behind him.
  6. Today, Drake unleashes “Back to Back” diss.

*This actually did not happen first, but only Drake and Meek know what actually started the rift between these two emcees.

Today, Drake looked for the “checkmate” move as he dropped his new diss track, which you can hear below.

Apparently shortly after the “Back to Back” diss was released someone started a gofundme.com account to help Meek Mill record his Drake diss track. That’s how important it is for Meek to respond at this point.

There is even a newly developed website, SaveMeekMill.com, which is set up to help build Meek’s brand by collecting donations to buy school supplies for the youth in Meek’s hometown of Philadelphia.  However, don’t let the positive mission statement fool you. The website states, “We strive to inspire the youth into different career paths other than being the type of rapper Meek Mill once glorified. We will save the youth from any future embarrassment caused at the hands of their rap adversaries when they find themselves in a beef — inspired by the one Meek Mill is currently losing to Drake. How? By inspiring them to not be like Meek Mill at all.”

The ball is in your court Meek. You’re down in points, but it’s your possession. So what are you going to do? The clock is ticking…
