We have new music from Young Deuces, one half of the rap group SNYD. Dropping on his birthday we at UML just wanna wish you a Happy Birthday and let everyone know about the new joint.
The Moguls discuss Kendrick’s two words in his new video “Humble” that has many up in arms, Ali’s talks about a BBQ experience he regrets and a closer look at the Uberbae situation on how they would’ve handled it.
The “Black Pack” takes a look at The Notorious Big’s seminal and final album Life After Death. It’s been 20 years since the album dropped and the crew examines the impact of not only Life After Death but also Biggie’s legacy and where does he stand in 2017. Is he still the GOAT, or does […]
This week on The Summit Ali, Maal, and El-Fatiah sits down to talk to Streetz N Young Deuces. SYND tells us about their history, new project, and the role that artist play in social topics.
Danny P Ocean First off let me preface this by saying I love hip-hop and the culture that it gave me. I probably have been affected more by hip-hop than any other single culture. The culture of hip-hop introduced me to Malcolm X, jazz, and a multitude of books I may have never picked up. […]
Danny P Ocean and Poindexter sit down to tackle the age old debate, who is better André 3000 or Big Boi? During the discussion we also discuss where does OutKast place in history among the top groups. We end the debate chopping it up about T.I. and if his recent signing with Tidal will do […]
I sit and really ponder, there’s so many people who claim to be so called music heads and their POV on music baffles me. This is probably directed more towards those in my generations. I’ll admit I’m not satisfied with the current state of the music industry, but I’m tired of those stuck back in […]
I am so sick of hearing people complain about there being “no good music” out. This is far from the truth. The problem, is that there is too much music to choose from. The over-saturation of music, caused by the internets, has made it either hard to find the specific type of music you like […]
Of all the rappers I’ve shot throughout the years, Talib Kweli remains one of my favorite. His energy is explosive from beginning to end and he always gives you an unforgettable show every time. I shot Talib quite a few times but here are some of my favorites from the ‘Taking It To The Streets’ […]
I’m not a rapper so how can I possibly discuss anything about the rap world you ask? Here’s how. I’ve been involved in every facet of this rap shit for the last 20 years. I’ve produced, I’ve written, I’ve been an A&R, I’ve deejayed, I’ve promoted, I’ve marketed and blah, blah, blah. Everything I’ve done […]
I’m a huge Dilated Peoples fan. Not so much Jurassic 5 though. I got the chance to see them both when the “Word of Mouth” tour made a pit stop through my fair city. I not only shot the show but I also weaseled my way onto the tour bus and hung out with Evidence and […]
Kendrick Lamars new single, “I”, is a little pop (ish) but that’s expected when you sample “That Lady” from the Isley Brothers for the 800th time. I can’t complain though. It’s his first single since 2012. Take a listen below and let us know what you think. https://soundcloud.com/topdawgent/i-1
So, we can finally put this story to rest….Your Old Droog is a white dude from Brooklyn, like he said from the beginning, and Nas apparently has nothing to do with him. He used the ominous gossip contrived by the media to push his career ahead a few steps; and rightfully so. While Droog obviously digs […]
You ever wondered what that moment was like when Pete Rock found the sample for “The World Is Yours” or how initially Nas got signed? All of your questions will be answered thanks to Spotify’s “Landmark” interviews. Not only does Nas recount the making of Illmatic, but we also get to hear from original producers […]
Can you believe that it has been 25 years since MTV Raps came out? Wow I guess we are 80’s babies for real. On August 6, 1988 Yo! MTV Raps debuted on MTV and changed the world. It’s hard to imagine, but back then Rap music was not what it is today. It was an […]
The Summer and I have at least one thing in common; we both love Hip Hop. In fact you can’t have a summer without Hip Hop. They go together like catfish and grits, white tees and Air Force 1’s, you know Ashford and Simpson. As far as I can recall Hip Hop has been a […]
Kanye West has had a busy few months to end 2012. First he sports his “kilt” that a few people took notice to. Then he tells us that he dropped one in the oven of Kim Kardashian. So now he gives us a little freestyle.
