DMX Sentenced to One Year in Prison

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan. He pleaded guilty to one count of tax fraud in November.

Rakoff said he believed Simmons was “a good man” and that the sentence should be modest, explaining why he gave less than the five years sought by prosecutors.

Nonetheless, the judge said, “It cannot go unpunished.”

DJ Khaled ft. Jay-Z, Future & Beyonce – Top Off

DJ Khaled unleashes “Top Off,” the First Big Single from his just-announced next album, Father of Asahd. The song features Jay-Z, Future and Beyonce and is notable because it’s Jay and Bey’s second collab with Asahd’s pops, plus you may recall Jay and Future trading sublims and IG shade back when 4:44 dropped. Jay’s verse was obviously recorded very recently as he references that 100K bar bill that was in the news a week or two ago.

Listen below.

Sean Price ft. Prodigy & Styles P – The 3 Lyrical Ps

The late Sean Price, Prodigy and Styles P get expertly animated by Paperface in the new visual for “The 3 Lyrical Ps” off that Imperius Rex LP. This is pretty great as far as cartoon Rap videos go, but little flourishes like the Barnum & Bailey truck, Prodigy’s mural and the Yonkers dock sign push it over the top.

Rick Ross Machine Takes Over for Heart and Lungs

Rick Ross has been hooked up to a machine that’s taking over the function of his heart and lungs … according to sources connected to the music mogul.

Rick is in a Miami area hospital getting treatment in the cardio unit — a strong sign he might have suffered a heart attack which manifested itself as respiratory issues early Thursday morning.

TMZ broke the story … Rick was rushed to a hospital after a 911 caller reported he was unresponsive and “slobbing at the mouth.”

We’re told doctors have put him on something called ECMO, or extracorporeal membrane oxygenation. It’s a technique used to oxygenate his blood outside of his body, before it’s pumped back into his body.

It’s essentially a form of life support, and a clear sign of how dire Rick’s situation is right now.

Nas trolled Lonzo Ball on Instagram after Knicks beat Lakers

Months ago, Lonzo Ball said that no one listens to Nas anymore on his family’s reality show. The Lakers rookie later said he didn’t mean to disrespect the hip-hop legend, he was just sharing his opinion as a young person in 2017.

After that, Ball’s manager was spotted wearing a shirt that had Ball’s face on the cover of a Nas album, and Ball included that shirt design that seemed to take a shot as Nas when he teased his new apparel collection.

That brings us to Tuesday — the first time Ball played in a Lakers jersey at Madison Square Garden — and the hoodie the 20-year-old chose to wear.

YEP, that’s the Nas shirt design on a hoodie — a brilliant troll job.

Wow. Look at the hoodie Lonzo wore to MSG tonight. Disrespecting the GOAT once again?!??

Go get ‘em, Frank

Jazz rookie Donovan Mitchell couldn’t believe it.

Update: After the Lakers lost to the Knicks in overtime, Nas had something to say on Instagram: He congratulated the New York team on the victory, something he doesn’t normally do.

The thing about all of this is according to Nas’ manager, Nas wasn’t fazed by Ball saying no one listens to his music anymore. In fact, the manager said the rapper didn’t even know who Ball was until he was told about the NBA rookie’s comments.

Asher Roth Working for Uber ? The Rise and Fall of the College Rapper

It appears the college loving rapper, Asher Roth, shouldn’t have partied so hard back in school. It has been reported on several outlets that Roth is now driving for Uber in San Fran.

The Rise

Roth rose to fame with the hit record, I Love College, the song which blatantly stole from the rock band Weezer, and he was put on the XXL Freshman list. He was a buzzing act on one of the hottest labels in the music industry, SRC, His album had major features from the likes of Cee-Lo and Keri Hilson. Yet, despite these co-signs, Roth failed to bring any music that moved anyone.

SRC put Roth on tour with Blink 182, crossed their fingers, and hoped for the best. Even as an opening act for the biggest band in the world at the time, Roth again failed to deliver.

How a rapper could fail with Cee-Lo is just proof that Roth was a one hit wonder bound to fall….That fact that the song was a complete hack job of a great Weezer song, showed that the fall was going to be ugly.

The Fall

After the touring funds from SRC dried up, and I Love College stopped spinning, Roth tried to play the publicity game to keep his name in the game. He put out rumors that he was homosexual even tweeting that he was gay. The rumors circulated that he was the rapper in Terrence Dean’s book on the subject.



After a few subpar mix tapes that failed to deliver, Roth was gone from the scene. He was quietly dropped from SRC, and the world moved on.

Now Roth is back on social media promoting new songs, but without the major label behind him, he appears to be all but finished. This brought us to find out what he was doing now. It saddens us to say that we could only say he is working for Uber, driving for Uber that is, and in a Honda Accord to make matters even worse.

Now there is nothing wrong with a Honda Accord, my own grandmother drives one, but for Roth to have fallen so far is the real point here.

If you are in the San Fran area and looking for ride be on the lookout for college kid. Maybe you can suggest some classes at the University of Phoenix for him as we hear it’s hard to party at that school….
