Big Tymers Plan Reunion

“Gator boots with the pimped out Gucci suits!”

It’s been 20-years since their inception. They’ve issued a number of hits, helped groom one of Hip Hop’s progenies, and now they’re bag.

The Big Tymers are planning a reunion show for October 27th, in front of their hometown crowd, New Orleans. It should be exciting to see this legendary rap group recount their hits, which include: “Still Fly”, “Number One Stunna”, “This Is How We Do”, and many more.

Dizzy Wright & Big K.R.I.T. Unite For “Outrageous” Video

Two young lyricists doing their thing.

His label situation might be unsettled, but that won’t hinder Dizzy Wright from doing what he was born to do: make great music. Recently, the 26-year-old rapper teamed up with fellow lyrically-minded MC, Big K.R.IT., for the “Outrageous” video.

The song captures the confused mindset of an American minority trying to make sense of the outrageous actions plaguing the disenfranchised. Simplistic imagery of Dizzy and K.R.I.T. donned in all black garb displaces focus from the video onto the song so the listener can truly digest the message.

“I’m a certified rap beast, who’s sticking to his guns / So I ain’t asking for no trap beats”

Consequence has returned in a fiery lyrical fashion. Participating in the “Where Hip-Hop Lives” series, presented by Hot 97 and Power 106, he dropped a ferocious freestyle named, “The Realness”.

Spitting over a classic boom-bap beat, Consequence opens his lyrical aperture to incorporate a medley of topics ranging from his come-up to his disapproval of the NFL’s treatment of Colin Kaepernick.

Missy Elliott Kills VH1 Hip Hop Honors “She’s a Bitch” Performance

She’s still got it.

Last night (Monday, September 18th), VH1 hosted the 2017 ‘Hip Hop Honors’—an event paying tribute to all the influential Hip Hop personalities who’ve helped shape the genre. The stars were out, as everyone from Pharrell to Master P were in attendance and shared a word or two. But the one who stole the show was not-so-surprisingly Missy Elliott.

The ‘90s rap queen performed her 1999-released hit, “She’s a Bitch”, to an elated audience. The production was a spectacle: Missy emerged from a pool center-stage, donned in all dark garb and a jewel-encrusted mask.

To properly grasp the energy, watch the video below:

Have the repeat button ready.

Funk Flex is intent on keeping “real rap” alive by any means necessary. Whether he incites twitter wars with new-wave rappers, or voices his severe disdain for anything non-boom-bap, Flex is doing whatever he can to channel Golden Age vibes into the mainstream.

One of his platform’s segments, “Funk Flex Freestyles”, offers refuge to spitters fighting to keep lyricism alive. A recent guest, Fred The Godson, came out to prove that not only does “real rap” still have a pulse, it’s thriving.
