Rapper Lil Peep dies at 21

Rapper Lil Peep, an emerging voice on the hip hop scene and a YouTube star, has died at the age of 21, police and a business associate confirmed.

“After speaking with people on scene and going into the tour bus, (police) said that there was evidence of a possible drug overdose, most likely from Xanax,” Sgt. Pete Dugan told CNN in a phone interview Thursday.

“Obviously, we’re not medical examiners, so there will be an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death,” Dugan said, adding that there was “no sign of any kind of foul play” and police are “treating it as a suspicious death case, most likely from an overdose.”
Born Gustav Åhr, the Long Island rapper and singer blended emo and hip hop for a distinctive singing and rapping style which often highlighted his drug use.
Many fans first discovered him via the streaming service Soundcloud, where he was one of its biggest stars.
Sarah Stennett, chief executive officer of First Access Entertainment, which partnered with the rapper last year, said in a statement to CNN that she was “shocked and heartbroken.”
“I do not believe Peep wanted to die, this is so tragic. He had big goals and dreams for the future which he had shared with me, his team, his family and his friends,” she said. “He was highly intelligent, hugely creative, massively charismatic, gentle and charming. He had huge ambition and his career was flourishing.”
“I have spoken to his mother and she asked me to convey that she is very, very proud of him and everything he was able to achieve in his short life,” Stennett’s statement said. “She is truly grateful to the fans and the people who have supported and loved him.”
In June, the New York Times described the rapper in an article as having “evolved into something like the scene’s Kurt Cobain, with several astonishingly gloomy and diabolically melodic releases, and a body that is in constant flux: hair dyed one color after another, an anarchy sign and the word ‘crybaby’ tattooed on his face.”
“His songs find a middle ground between hip-hop bluster and emo’s bulked-up anxiety, a blend that feels eminently of the moment, and inevitable,” the article stated.
His debut album, “Come Over When You’re Sober (Part One),” dropped on September 1 and found Pitchfork dubbing him an “emo rap alchemist.

Meek Mill Going to Prison

Meek Mill’s most recent arrests didn’t sit well with the judge, who’s sending the rapper to prison for a minimum of 2 years for violating probation.
Meek was in a Philadelphia court Monday when the judge ruled he’d violated probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case by getting busted for a St. Louis airport fight … and his reckless driving arrest in NYC.
Even though both cases were dropped, the judge said the arrests alone were violations — and gave Meek 2 to 4 years in prison. He was immediately remanded into custody.
Didn’t help Meek’s case that he’d previously violated probation in 2015. He got off with house arrest for that one. No such luck this time.

Snoop Dogg Drops Make America Crip Again EP

We all know what people mean when they recite that idiotic ‘Make America Great Again’ slogan. What those people actually want to do is put brown people in “their place” and return the country to a time when its complexion was a bit more monochromatic. You can say what you want about Uncle Snoop, but one thing he’s not gonna do is let up on the fuccboi who coined the term. And so with his new 8-track EP the OG looks to Make America Crip Again. Guest appearances include O.T. Genasis, Chris Brown, October London, HaHa Davis, Shon Lawon and Designer Flow.

Listen below.


Big K.R.I.T – 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time (Album Stream)

Although he has continuously fed the streets with loosies, guest appearances, and the occasional mixtape, it has been three years since Big K.R.I.T dropped a proper full-length LP. Today he returns with his first new album since 2014’s Cadillactica, the 22-track deep double LP, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time. The first promotional teaser he released for this project depicted him burying himself in an unmarked grave somewhere in the woods, so it’s probably safe to assume that he sees this album as something of a rebirth. As far as guest appearances, he’s got a strong ATL contingent joining him this go-round, with T.I., Cee-Lo Green, Sleepy Brown and Joi all contributing, as well additional features from UGK, Jill Scott, Bilal and Robert Glasper.


The LOX Drop 4 No Reason EP

Joining them on two of the tracks are guest Derez Deshon and L-Biz, and unfortunately, the EP is a TIDAL exclusive. If you’re a subscriber, you can stream on Tidal Now.

Video: Gucci Mane ft. Ty Dolla $ign – Enormous

Gucci Mane drops off a new video for “Enormous” featuring Ty Dolla $ign, off that Mr. Davis album which just dropped a couple of weeks back. The other day, he announced via tweet that his next album will be called El Gato the Human Glacier although I’m not sure if he’s kidding with that title.

Boycott BET Officially Starts Online #BoycottBET

As BET wraps up another, uneventful award show (besides the Eminem m*rder of Trump), we took notice that #BoycottBET was trending on Twitter. The main reason? Thanks to BET letting upcoming artist, XXXTentacion, to be involved in the freestyle cypher. XXXTentacion is about to go to trial for charges that go beyond anything we have seen supported by anyone in the mainstream before…so just go ahead and read this description..

“Over the course of six months, XXXTentacion threatened to insert a barbecue pitchfork in the victim’s vagina, kicked, punched and stomped on her, strangled her on more than one occasion and threatened to kill her and their unborn child. The sadism and manipulation of the rapper’s treatment is incredibly upsetting and warped.”

The description of the unreal charges continues…

“The torture for the victim doesn’t end there, though. After a brutal attack left her with a hemorrhaging eye, she asked to go to a hospital, but instead was taken to a different apartment and left with no phone. The victim was trapped with no exit for two days before finding a way to escape. The pathology of XXXTentacion’s abuse—a false sense of security, control over the body, physical harm and social isolation—are indicators of severe emotional instability. The motivator behind the abuse was primarily jealousy: When the victim gave attention to another man, sexually or otherwise, the young artist would snap.”

Now everyone is considered innocent until proven guilty here in America, but that didn’t stop XXXTentacion from saying what he wanted on his Instagram account.

Over Instagram, XXXTentacion aired his thoughts on the allegations brought against him, leading to a spew of threats of rape and sexual violence: “I’m gonna fuck y’all little sisters down their throats, I swear to god. Everyone who called me a domestic abuser, I’m gonna domestically abuse your little sister’s pussy…I think I’m gonna start supporting feminism.”

BET didn’t seem to mind the actions that were allegedly put on the rapper, they reported them, and still let him perform on their award show. It is a case of things that make you go hmmm.

BET wouldn’t respond to our request for a comment.
