Previous story (June 29):

Last month, Summer Walker teased fans that she will be releasing a new EP by writing the caption “EP coming soon babies.”
Following last night’s stunning performance of ‘Session 32’ and ‘Come Thru’ with help from Usher, the singer has formally announced that she will be releasing the EP titled Life on Earth on July 10th. Check out the official artwork below.

We don’t know how many songs we are getting but it will be nice for fans to receive new music before she goes into her sophomore LP. Back in February, she had social media talking after she hinted at retirement from music. “Lol I’m deada*s never making another song after 2020,” the singer announced via her Instagram story. We’re glad that she has changed her plans.

AllHipHop Presents: “10 Steps to NOME X” featuring Loaded Lux

When people talk about Mt. Rushmore of battle rap, there are a few names that people can debate. However, there is one name that continues to rise above the rest.Beloved.
Loaded Lux did not create battle rap, but what he has offered to the culture as an innovator, a thinker, a businessman, and an artist has transformed it as an art — helping to attract its most celebrated talent to the commercial leagues that matter the most.
Before he was the founder of the Lions Den/ Lionz Den, he wrecked the streets of Harlem spitting fire against best lyricists that the hood would regurgitate. But out of that cut-throat pool of emceeing, emerged a god-tier persona that worked to develop the culture in ways comparable to that of URL’s Smack (where he also performed as an artist and where many outside of New York saw first).

The difference? Smack had a distribution model with his DVD series. What did Lux have? Handsome had a charisma that attracted talent to the collective … wanting to align themselves with him … and establish legitimacy by basking in his professional aura. Had it not been for his scouting ear, the world would have waited much longer to experience the great talents of Goodz, Arsonal, Tay Roc, Charlie Clips, and Head Ice. Try as you might, over the last 20 years, Lux has made the craft, business, and artistic expression of battle rap performance elevate.

That is why NOME X will be a special event for fans.
The man that many consider the Greatest of All Times, will stand before a competitor that not only was influenced by Farrakhan’s favorite emcee — but believes it is just as important for his legacy to show us as it is for the pioneer. Lux versus Tsu Surf will be not only a battle for legacy but will shift cultural dynamics. If Surf has it his way, his swan song from battle rap will be with the head of this icon on a platter.
Lux is not ready to give him this distinction, especially for a battle he never even thought about until recently.
“The battle came up last year. It was coming off of Summer Impact. It was supposed to be the two-on-two, Gun Titles vs. Loaded Hollows. And that never happened because of a situation that he was in. When that didn’t happen, I guess he felt like he still wanted a shot. Shortly after that, he was just talking crazy, throwing shots. I’m not mad.”

Lux describes the energy around Summer Impact as a “grand moment.” It set the stage for a contest to happen between Lux and Surf, and surprisingly despite the vet having his eye on new talent never considered Surf as a potential opponent.
“He came on my radar, for real for real, after Summer Impact. When that didn’t happen or take place, that’s when I caught him going back and forth in interviews. He was throwing shots. I recall that I was in an interview and he had called up (Three Letterman) and then from there he was patched in. That’s when I really realized that he ‘really wants some smoke.’”

“Before then, it wasn’t really nothing. I just appreciated him and everything that he brought to the table as a talent. When we first saw Tsu Surf, we thought he was grand and held him in high regard. And we knew he was one of the ones that could be a formidable participant in the culture. That was actually a while ago when we gave him that look. I just appreciate what he was doing, but he wasn’t on my radar. I look at Surf as a little brother.”
“You watch certain talents when they enter the culture and you are like, ‘Yo that is a beautiful thing.’ Because you know what they bring to the table will make other people tune in because of where they are at.”
So when Surf called him out, did the vet take it as a form of disrespect? No. In classic Lux way, he shares that he is simply “blessed to be in the conversation.”
Lux has been in the conversation a lot. Last year at NOME 9, he battled against Aye Verb. Aye Verb had been on a roll after battling Murda Mook, another pioneer than many consider the historical Ishmael to beloveds’ Isaac. The two had danced in epic form, with many believing Mook advanced as the victor. However, many revere those battles as an exhibition sport, believing the win doesn’t matter as much as the epic performance. That also can be said about his back and forth with Verb.

A preference battle at best, Lux’s intricate mind dispensed some of the most entertaining yet thought provocative bars of the year:
“Damn Verb, look what you did what you did wit' ya shot
They gon' give me all the photo cred' but all I caught was the body...
Yeah some niggas don't get the picture 'til it's cropped
Top- layers they put you in, that's from all that bitchin' you do a lot
If you got through the tiers flippin', I should flop
Word Verb, you 'bout that action for traffic and then it stops
I'm a mind reader
You gon' be time keepin' the timekeeper
This should've been unlimited but it's not
You'se a tricky nigga got 'em to get the clicker on paper put a hold (hole) on me like a ticket clipper
This what you picked, you forgot?
After that 2019 battle, he hopped on the aforementioned Summer Impact card, wherein that battle (despite Surf not performing) an extraordinary feat was accomplished as he single-handedly made a debatable with the replacement team, Gunz N Cake. The Gray Hoodie Lux had emerged from the early 2000s and that wet the whistle for Surf, priming him to take shots.
“I am supposed to have shots taken at me. This is a sport. If we ain’t got that type of energy and you don’t want to execute on that level then you don’t need to be in this.”
He adds that the shots are expected, but you have to have the skin for it.
“This sport is contention driven. You come in here and you better want to be the best and you better want to take on the best. If you don’t feel like you can take on a name, then don’t do this. Get out the way.”
But what is the Gray Hoodie Lux? The Gray Hoodie Lux is more edgy and street driven. He is more raw.

“As I evolved and elevated, my conversation changed at times. I became more aware of the different lanes that I wanted to take and wanted to work in. But people fell in love with us on the come up, that raw edgy and street. When you look at Surf’s background and you see what he brings to the table, it is that element. And that actually is a beautiful energy.
Really what people are tuning into, they are engaged in the energy. That’s a beautiful thing to want. That’s what he wants from me. When you look back at anything regarding Gray Hoodie Lux and that mind-state and element look for the raw-edgy energy. It is driven from the heart and the street.
Both emcees are magical, and with the star-studded roster of competitors, many wonder if Lux is coming in for the kill. They ask, “if this is going to be a slaughter or a classic battle?”

Loaded Lux
“I believe what is most important is that we show up as our best selves that we can possibly be. After that, we can leave on the table. I believe me as a professional is important that I be the best Loaded Lux that I can be every time I show up. If Tsu Surf be the best Tsu Surf, and I be the best Loaded Lux, we cannot help but be a classic, after that … it is opinionated.”
While everyone will have their respective opinions, there are some things that Lux wants people to lock in on to best enjoy NOME X.
“This is a beautiful time of balance. NOME is typically done in a big stage-driven, but this is a humbling moment. Fundamentally, it is asking that we just get back to basics. Fans will learn to receive the content a little differently. When I look at the last Summer Impact, which was beautiful, it was show driven. This brings it back to the content in terms of lyricism and people having to perform under these different spaces. It gives the fans a chance to really listen and a sense of balance.
All praises due to the Most High, for this to still take place shows how important battle rap is to the Hip-Hop community.
To add on to Lux’s statement, for so many to be locked into his battle, it shows how important Lux remains in the Hip-Hop community.

Kid Cudi Announces New Single with Eminem

The Moon Man and Slim Shady are teaming up.
Kid Cudi has enlisted Eminem for his new single “The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady,” which drops Friday. Cudi’s daughter Vada shared the big news with her father’s 2.3 million Twitter followers on Wednesday.
“I’m here to say that my daddy’s new single ‘The Adventures of Moon Man and Slim Shady’ is coming out on Friday. Check it out!” said Vada in the video clip.

Cudi previously tried to reach out to the “Rap God” via social media in May. “@Eminem rap God. Help!” he tweeted.
Em said he was unaware that Cudi was trying to contact him when he spoke to Lil Wayne on Young Money Radio, but it appears that they finally connected.

Cudi previously dropped his hit “The Scotts” with Travis Scott, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100. Prior to that, he released “Leader of the Delinquents,” his first solo release since 2016’s Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’.
He is now readying his seventh studio album, Entergalactic, inspired by his upcoming adult animated music series for Netflix. He is teaming up with “Black-ish” creator Kenya Barris on the show.
He and Kanye West are also working on an animated series based off their Kids See Ghosts album. Last month, they shared a trailer for the Takashi Murakami-directed show.
Additionally, Cudi is set to appear in HBO’s coming-of-age series “We Are Who We Are,” which debuts in September.

The message was delivered by Cudi’s daughter Vada on his Instagram. The song drops this Friday, July 10 but there’s no word if it’s taken from his forthcoming album Entergalactic. Last month, he announced that he was starting his own podcast.

Will Smith Says Cops Frequently Called Him The N-Word

(AllHipHop News) Will Smith revealed he has been called the N-word by police officers on "more than 10 occasions" as he reflected on the Black Lives Matter movement on Tuesday (07Jul20).The 51-year-old actor spoke to political commentator and activist Angela Rye on her podcast, On One With Angela Rye, about his own experiences with racism throughout his life.
Will grew up in Philadelphia and was just four years old when the notoriously racist Frank Rizzo went from the chief of police to becoming the mayor of the state, and the instances of racially-motivated incidents of police brutality increased dramatically under his watch.

"I've been called n##ger by the cops in Philly on more than 10 occasions," Will said. "I got stopped frequently. So I understand what it's like to be in those circumstances with the police."
Will was reflecting on his own experiences in the wake of George Floyd's death at the hands of police after he was killed when an officer knelt on his neck for nine minutes while arresting him.
As for his hopes following the renewed attention on racially motivated police incidents, the "After Earth" star continued: "We are in a circumstance that we've never been in before. The entire globe has stood up and said to the African-American people, 'We see you and we hear you. How can we help?' We've never been there before."
And now the father-of-three is hoping the next generation can learn to use their privileged positions to help aid the world in a more compassionate outlook.
"I am pledging my unending devotion to the evolution of my community and the evolution of my country, and ultimately the world, towards the greatest harmony that we'll be able to create," he concluded. "I am happy to be alive during this time, and to serve."

Roddy Ricch Performs for NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert

Roddy Ricch brings the Tiny Desk home.
The Compton rapper was originally booked to play the NPR series in June, but after the pandemic, he had to make other plans and instead performed a stripped-down set from famed auto garage West Coast Customs in his hometown of L.A. Backed by 1500 or Nothin’, Roddy delivered a four-song medley of hits from his chart-topping debut Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial.
Playing the keyboard, he kicked off his 15-minute set with “Perfect Time” followed by “Bacc Seat” on which he was joined by special guest Ty Dolla $ign.
“I’d like to welcome y’all to Tiny Desk aka Tiny Garage,” said the 21-year-old MC while sporting sunglasses in the dimly-lit room. “I’m at West Coast Customs. This is a legendary spot.”
He followed it up with his Mustard-produced hit “High Fashion.” “My next song, I really just describe the type of relationships I like to be in,” explained Roddy. “I like to be in high-fashion relationships, I like to buy a lot of Goyard, Saint Laurent, and shit like that. I like to be fly, I like shorty to be fly.”
He capped it off with “War Baby,” while addressing the state of the world. “It’s a lot going on in the world. A lot of times I stay off the internet, I don’t really like to be bothered,” he said. “But this is a crazy time we’re living in. It’s a lot of negativity going on and on a positive note, I just want to appreciate my people for standing together in a time like this.”
Roddy continues to shine. His “Rockstar” collaboration with DaBaby remains No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for a fourth week.

Talib Kweli Says Madlib-Produced Black Star Album is Not Coming Out; Blames “Culture Vultures”

2020 has already been a tough year but here’s some more bad news for Hip-Hop fans.

--advertisement--

Talib Kweli has revealed that the much anticipated new Black Star album produced by Madlib is probably not coming out ever. Talib dropped the shocking news after a fan tweeted how excited he/she was to hear the new project. In a response, the veteran New York emcee said, “too many interlopers and culture vultures in the way. The album been done for over a year. I paid for the whole album myself. Too many greedy people in the way stopping us from working with Madlib. I wash my hands of it at this point.”

Later, he also expanded on it in the caption of his Instagram post, reiterating that some “culture vultures” are standing in the way of the release. He didn’t take any names but it looks like he’s pointing to some executives.
“I’m tired of being silent about this. I tried my best y’all. Flew around the globe. Paid for this out of pocket. All for the culture. I’m a fan of Black Star too. I want to see this come out as bad as y’all do, or more. But people who never made a beat, never wrote a rhyme in they life got they fingers in the pie and are being disrespectful to what me and my brothers built. It’s in Gods hands now. I’m on to other things, life is too short to be disrespected by culture vultures. Maybe y’all will get to hear this album after I’m gone.”
The last concrete development about the album we had was in November, 2019 when Talib said that the album was done. “This project with Madlib is done,” he said to Ebro. “We just trying to figure out when and how to release it.”

Kanye West Says He No Longer Supports Trump, Reveals Presidential Platform

Kanye West is moving forward with his plans to run for president.
In his first interview since announcing his bid for the White House on Saturday, the billionaire rap mogul opened up to Forbes about his intentions to run and win the 2020 presidential race against President Trump and Joe Biden.
During “four rambling hours of interviews,” West says he no longer supports Trump. “I am taking the red hat off, with this interview,” says Kanye, who registered to vote for the first time on Monday. “I would run as a Republican if Trump wasn’t there. I will run as an independent if Trump is there.”
He reveals his campaign slogan (“YES!”), his running mate (Michelle Tidball, an obscure preacher from Wyoming), and the name of his party–the Birthday Party (“Because when we win, it’s everybody’s birthday”).
His advisors include his wife Kim Kardashian-West and Tesla CEO Elon Musk, but he credits God for inspiring his campaign. “God just gave me the clarity and said it’s time. You know I was out there, ended up in the hospital, people were calling me crazy. I’m not crazy,” he said. “Now it’s time. And we’re not going crazy, we’re going Yeezy, it’s a whole ‘notha level now. N-O-T-H-A.”
He also criticizes the presumptive Democratic nominee. “This man, Joe Biden, said if you don’t vote for me, then you are not Black. Well, act like we didn’t hear that? We act like we didn’t hear that man say that? That man said that. It’s a rap. We gonna walk, all the people. JAY-Z said it best. For the other candidates, I just gracefully suggest y’all bow out–Trump and Biden, gracefully bow out. It’s God’s country, we are doing everything in service to God, nobody but God no more.”
Elsewhere, West says that he contracted the coronavirus in late February, but is skeptical of a vaccine. “It’s so many of our children that are being vaccinated and paralyzed… So when they say the way we’re going to fix Covid is with a vaccine, I’m extremely cautious,” he says. “That’s the mark of the beast. They want to put chips inside of us, they want to do all kinds of things, to make it where we can’t cross the gates of heaven.”
Read highlights from the interview below.
On Trump’s presidency: “It looks like one big mess to me. I don’t like that I caught wind that he hid in the bunker.”
On why he never voted in the past: “The reason why this is the first day I registered to vote is because I was scared. I was told that if I voted on Trump my music career would be over. I was threatened into being in one party. I was threatened as a celebrity into being in one party. I was threatened as a Black man into the Democratic party. And that’s what the Democrats are doing, emotionally, to my people. Threatening them to the point where this white man can tell a Black man if you don’t vote for me, you’re not Black.”
On potentially siphoning off Black votes from the Democratic nominee: “I’m not denying it, I just told you. To say that the Black vote is Democratic is a form of racism and white supremacy.”
On Biden: “I’m not saying Trump’s in my way, he may be a part of my way. And Joe Biden? Like come on man, please. You know? Obama’s special. Trump’s special. We say Kanye West is special. America needs special people that lead. Bill Clinton? Special. Joe Biden’s not special.”
On abortion: “I am pro-life because I’m following the word of the bible.”
On police brutality: “One of my to-do lists is to end police brutality. The police are people too. To end laws that don’t make sense.”
On contracting COVID-19: “Chills, shaking in the bed, taking hot showers, looking at videos telling me what I’m supposed to do to get over it. I remember someone had told me Drake had the coronavirus and my response was Drake can’t be sicker than me!”
On the coronavirus cure: “We pray. We pray for the freedom. It’s all about God. We need to stop doing things that make God mad.”

Pusha T and Young Thug Trade Barbs! Who Won?

(AllHipHop Rumors) Pusha T and Young Thug are going at it over a Pop Smoke song. I don’t know what in the twilight zone we are doing these days, but it is definitely getting old! And played out! To see two grown men going back and forth over a rap verse that is literally one of the most insignificant things in life is crazy. First of all, Young Thug is jumping in something he has nothing to do with which, is the Pusha T and Drake beef. He is doing the equivalent of jumping in front of the bullet of a person that is not his blood or his brother. Now, Pusha T is taking the time out of his legendary life to respond to something that doesn’t even need responding to. But, I do understand that he has to say something, because the verse is sub dissing Drake, which he may not have wanted anybody to know. Dude is snitching! People draw inspiration from their adversaries, but they don’t necessarily have to announce that. So, Young Thug is doing the devil's work because he is actually tearing a scab from a wound that was already healed in the public eye. We literally weren’t thinking anything about the Pop Smoke song, the verse, or any sort of Drake and Pusha T beef whatsoever, but he took it upon himself to highlight it. So, we are in the midst of an international pandemic, racial strife of unprecedented amounts for the year we are living in, and we have these guys acting like these guys.
On top of it all, we are seeing that there is an inner generational component to this since Pusha T is an older school rapper and Young Thug is a newer school Rapper. I don’t think there’s any competition here in terms of lyrics but in terms of generation, it seems like Young Thug is one of the best of the best of this current era. I literally cannot say, because I literally do not listen to Young Thug in any way, shape, or form. His whole swag is out of step with my mind state, respectfully. At the end of his rant Young Thug says that “we kill for real“ and that is what I am completely against. Why would he insert an element of killing another Black man into something so trivial? Why can’t we simply move on from the stupid, small, and minute things in life and simply keep it pushing? The old me would’ve loved something like this because it drives views and likes and traffic to the site, but now I am questioning my own goals in life. This is getting old. Grow the hell up.

EXCLUSIVE: R. Kelly Labeled A Threat To Jurors In Upcoming RICO Trial

(AllHipHop News) The government is worried about the safety of jurors in R. Kelly's upcoming RICO case for allegedly running a sexual enterprise.Federal prosecutors are asking for an anonymous, partially sequestered jury, because of the looming threat posed by R. Kelly from behind bars.
"The identities of all prospective  jurors, including their names, addresses, and places of employment, [should] not be revealed to either party or their attorneys," prosecutor Richard P. Donoghue wrote in court filings today (July 8th).
The Feds also want jurors to be partially sequestered.

The jury members should eat lunch together, in addition to being escorted in and out of the courthouse by US Marshals to avoid interaction with the public or media, according to U.S. prosecutor
The disgraced singer is facing almost two dozen felonies related to six different Jane Doe victims.
R. Kelly is accused of being the ringleader of a sex ring involving his managers, bodyguards, drivers, personal assistants, who allegedly fed the singer's insatiable appetite for underage girls.
The government claims that for over two decades, the organization recruited women and girls to engage in illegal sexual activity with R. Kelly.
The 53-year-old singer allegedly photographed and videotaped the underaged the girls to allegedly blackmail them into silence.
Then R. Kelly isolated the girls from their families, forced the teenagers to follow a dress code, and issued a commandment to refer to him as "Daddy," as he traveled with the children to sexually abuse them, according to an indictment.
R. Kelly has already been accused of intimidating witnesses, after a Jane Doe's lawyer received a threatening letter along with explicit images, reportedly signed by the singer himself.

Letter R. Kelly allegedly wrote to one of his victims.
As a result, Judge Ann Donnelly refused to release the singer from the Cook County Prison on three different occasions, despite an outbreak of the deadly coronavirus inside of the Cook County prison where the singer is currently incarcerated.
And now the Feds are worried R. Kelly may attempt to influence the jurors if they do not remain anonymous.
The singer is already accused of rigging his 2008 child porn trial which ended in his acquittal, by paying the victim hundreds-of-thousands of dollars to refuse to testify.
The government also accused R. Kelly of shelling out $200,000 more to buy up leaked pornographic videotapes he made of himself with the teens.
More recently, the Feds claim a goon associated with R. Kelly's threatened one victim's life and offered up $50,000 to buy another witness's silence.
"These measures are necessary to safeguard the jurors and the fair administration of justice," Donoghue argued. "Moreover, these precautions will not deprive the defendant of meaningful jury selection, diminish the presumption of innocence, or cause any prejudice."
The trial is supposed to start in March of 2021.

Bun B Provides Update On Houston Cops Involved In Racist Meme Posted To Social Media

(AllHipHop News) Bernard "Bun B" Freeman does not hold his tongue or curb his thumbs when it comes to addressing racism. He has been out in the streets protesting against police violence, and his Instagram page is filled with information about ongoing social issues like the killing of Breonna Taylor in Kentucky.On June 29, Bun B uploaded what appears to be a screenshot from a Houston police officer's personal Facebook page. The image is a meme that likens African-Americans to wild monkeys. 
"Ok, officers #TeeTruong #VuongVu and #DavidNguyen... you think it’s funny comparing black people to monkeys? We know you work in Houston at the Westside Command Station," wrote Bun in the caption of his IG post. "Let’s see what your commanders think about this. And the other Asians on this group chat in the comments? Keep that same energy. No apologies will do. Black people are tired [of] being treated like animals!"
TMZ interviewed Bun about the racist meme and the three Houston Police Department-associated individuals allegedly involved in the situation. The UGK member explained that one officer is no longer on the force, but two others are still employed by the city of Houston. 
“The officer that originally posted this resigned about a week before this post went up. So, he was no longer a member of HPD when this post went up," said Bun. "But the other two officers, who are in the comment section, are still active Houston Police Department officers right now. They work out of the Westside Command Station in Houston.

The Rice University professor of Religious Studies continued, "I’ve been told by the assistant police chief, deputy police chief, that they’re gonna be dealing with this expeditiously.” Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo issued a statement on June 30 saying an investigation has been initiated to determine if any current HPD employees were involved in the matter.
In addition to addressing his hometown's law enforcement, Bun B also placed blame on the racial tension in America on the current President of the United States. In the last few weeks, Donald Trump retweeted a video of one of his supporters shouting "White Power," called Black Lives Matter a symbol of hate, and defended Confederate symbols being displayed in public spaces.
"I've noticed that a lot of people have comprised their well being, the job they have, the community they live in, in order to pronounce their racism, to be bold about it," said Bun B. "I think a lot of them, to be quite honest, are looking at the actions and the words coming from our current White House administration, and they've been emboldened by the behavior and the actions taken by our president."
