The Game Evacuates Home Amid LA Fires

Tragic news striking the West Coast.

The Hollywood Hills are engulfed in flames from devastating wild fires. The land of dreams and opportunity has been converted into a real-life inferno, with the 405 resembling an entrance to hell. Everyone, from random pedestrians to the biggest stars, are being affected—no one is safe. One of LA’s proudest rappers, The Game, was forced to evacuate his home. 

And while an evacuation is naturally daunting, The Game is taking this awful news in stride. He took to his IG account to spread some holiday cheer for those suffering, posting a picture of his Christmas tree with the caption, “Even though the fires got everybody evacuating their homes….. I was able to get the tree bout 75% done b4 we left….. I’ll let my children swag the rest out but we lit…. #literally Now time for the shoppin’ cause I’m not doing the #lastminutenigga shit this year bihhhhhh #TisTheSeason.”

Check out his IG post below, and let’s send prayers to those affected by the fires:

It’s always good to hear from The Lox legend.

There seems to be a hip-hop resurgence going on. Mase has recently thrown his hat back into the ring with the release of his Cam’ron diss and track “Rap Rushmore” featuring Diddy and DJ Khaled; Cam’ron dropped off a new mixtape ahead of his Mase diss rebuttal; now Styles P is coming back into the game with two new singles, “Bring Dem Ghost” featuring Nino Man and “Ghost Credible”.

The former is a remix of French Montana’s “Bring Dem Things”, with the latter featuring Styles going in on the Future “Incredible” beat.

Listen to both tracks below:


Mase is Back Again on “Rap Rushmore”

Featuring Diddy and DJ Khaled.

Mase has recently jumped back into the hip-hop conversation. After trading diss tracks with fellow Harlem rapper Cam’ron, Mase teamed-up with Diddy and DJ Khaled for his latest song, “Rap Rushmore”. Even though he’s been out of the spotlight for some time, Mase hasn’t lost any confidence.

Delivering bars over an upbeat, traditionally sounding New York instrumental, Mase announces his return, and why his extensive rap resume earns him the chance to recapture the spotlight.

Kendrick Lamar Will Release Special ‘DAMN.’ Collector’s Edition

K. Dot’s a man of the people.

Kendrick Lamar’s DAMN. is unanimously amongst the year’s best projects. It pairs his unmatched lyricism with a heightened musicality, which bolsters its palatability. However, in classic Kendrick fashion, there’s alway a deeper meaning behind his projects. It was confirmed shortly after its release that the project was intended to be played backwards as well to rewind the narrative and close the album’s loop. To make it easier for fans, K. Dot will be releasing a DAMN. collector’s edition with a reversed tracklist.

DAMN. is nominated for multiple Grammy’s, including best rap album.

 

Statik Selektah Drops Off Another ’8′ Single, “Slept to Death”

Featuring Currren$y and Cousin Stizz.

Statik Selektah continues his hip-hop encapsulation with another single from his forthcoming project, 8, set to drop December 8th. Teaming up with Curren$y and Cousin Stizz, Statik has another banger in the arsenal, “Slept to Death”. 

On brand for the Boston producer, “Slept to Death” is a jazzy offering that sounds like a marriage of Golden Age rap with ‘70s funk, and provides a fantastic springboard for the two spitters to jump across. Mirroring the laid-back beat, Curren$y and Stizz provide chilled out 16s that are guaranteed to make your head nod.
