    Murdered Hip Hop Musicians

    Psychology and music professor Dianna Theadora Kenny analyzed the deaths of 13,000 musicians who performed in front of crowds in genres including blues, rap, gospel, punk, and metal, and she made some startling finds. For one thing, 6% of musicians in her sample were murdered, yet homicide accounted for “51% of deaths in rap musicians and 51.5% of deaths for hip hop musicians,” Kenny explains. Such musicians are “in a much more occupational hazard profession compared to war.”

    About 30% of punk musicians in the sample died in accidents, including car accidents or by accidental overdose, and 11% committed suicide, compared to a 7% suicide rate overall. Similarly, 36.2% of metal musicians’ deaths were accidental, while 19.3% died by suicide, the highest rate of any genre. Rock musicians also had a high rate of accidental death at 24.4%. Kenny points out that musicians of newer genres “have not yet lived long enough to fall into the highest-risk ages for heart- and liver-related illnesses. Consequently, they had the lowest rates of death in these categories.” (Blues, country, and R&B musicians had high rates of heart-related deaths.)

      • You know what? shes probably white just putting numbers out there,nwe need to do our own digging & find out on our own. she could be right,but we should not always except what white folk tell or post “REAL TALK”

          • I’m skeptical of a writer who cannot spell. He states that Nick Gordon was “balling” during the interview with Dr. Phil.

            Also, I am sick and tired of all this black women are really transgender men shit that’s going on now.

            Angela Bassett is NOT a trans. Period end of story.
            Just like our First Lady Michelle, she may have strong features and shapely musculature, but to call them genetically male is disrespectful and even racially insensitive. We know that black women have more testosterone than caucasian women, which accounts for our shapely behinds and strong toned thighs, but to conflate that with transgenderism is very offensive to me.

            Like many conspiracy theorists, this author has a whole bunch of information and facts which he then weaves into a narrative of his choosing. There are other things on that site which are untrue as well.

            And the second amendment is not about the right to “bare” arms. lol

            • Yes. Absolute true. I had been told about that site a while back. I though the brotha was on the real, but there are some slips misspellings I’ve been coming across that have me wondering. I just read the site and don’t take anything to heart. His early stuff was real good though…

        • Cmon now when is the last time you heard of rappers dying of natural causes? For every one you find I’ll give you ten that caught a bullet.

    1. this really scary and also troubling after Whitney’s death

      Chaka Khan appeared on Pierce Morgan show saying Her ex former told Her “She worth more dead, then alive!!”
      when She said that it was very worrying and also scary

      talking about Whitney few hours after Her death Sony raised the price Her album’s on itunes, They also did this to MJ after His death

      • The best option is the path of least resistance stop selling yourself and your soul for money and fame. Just like MJ said all I want to say is that they don’t really care about us and it is true. Just like GOD said why sell your soul to gain the world these people are not happy just like Robin Williams taking his life it is a new kind of slavery and artist have the illusion that this money and access will set them free but on the real is binds them even longer to the system and to the BS.

      • I’ve said this before, but La Toya Jackson talked about her “handler”, the man she was married to. She was afraid of him and he made her pose for playboy. Anyway, she said that he had a lot of power. So much power that “he would say someone was going to die and the next day they would fall off a building.” La Toya has a very big mouth, if you want to know what’s going on, just listen to what she says.

        • Research was attempted and interrupted by a party, being distracted by lots of “big butts and smiles” or “long dycked poor wanna be rappers” and tv (empire, reality trash, etc.). We gone have to read this one. OR Get focused people and accomplish something.

    2. Somebody wasted Prescious time doing this dumb ass research. All you have to do is sit and think for 5 minutes and you can figure all of this out. Like the last statement about the heart disease rate being higher in R&B, Blues and country. No shit Einstein, R&B singers eat Soulfood, Blues Singers eat Soulfood and Country singers eat shit that Paula Deen makes. Psychology professor, this was a bullshit research.

      • Eddie, I’m sure you were speaking rhetorically, but when someone is a professor in an ivy tower, they have to come up with projects such as this in order to obtain the valuable government grants which PhD’s LIVE for.
        And when you’re a psychologist specializing in the music industry, I imagine your options are rather limited.

    3. Murdered by other black people but black people dont want to hear the truth . you can BS blacks all day but give them truth and they will kill you

      • Wait now, we are not sure if they were killed by blacks – most of those deaths are mysterious and could have been by anybody or any race. Do you have answers for deaths that are mysterious? Please share your inside information on all the mysterious deaths being at the hands of blacks. We need your proof, nutz!

      • remember the Emmit Till murder?

        a Black Man had a part in it, He basically help these 2 racist mutherphucker out with the killing
        they threaten Him into helping Them carry out Their dirty crime!!

        Black People are easily persuaded by White People!!

      • You are not knutz, you are nuts. Always on here race baiting with your anti black comments. First of all, violent crimes are usually inner racial: black people kill/rape/rob blacks. Whites murder/main/poisen whites, latinos shoot/stab/steal from latinos. This is a fact. But im tired of the anti black biased trolls claiming that when we do a thing its just so much worse. Grow the f*ck up. All groups victimize their own because that tends to be who they have access to.

        • @Anonymous

          get off Your high horse you phucking “Big Girl Blouse” just giving You an example!!

          many White People few out the civil right era have gotten Black People to do Their dirty work

          We don’t know some of the facts! a Black Person could of helped with the lynchings, because They got threaten into helping by White People

          • Fuck you. I wasnt talking to you. I never talk to your schizoid, multi ple alias having nasty attitude ass. Who the f*ck are you to tell anyone anything, u crazy bytch. Gtfoohwtbs.

            • @Anonymous

              no f*ck you!!!

              you back washed piece of chit mutherphucker!!

              go suck on massa dick, is where you belong you
              f*cking uncle tom

              • Its shit, nit chit dumbass, and like I said I wasnt talking to you or any of your aliases unlovable fruits, stale chocolate etc. take your cuckoo for coco puffs ass and gone somewhere dummy. I didnt back up on shit, I repkied to the O P so unless thats one of your creations why u trippin? Esp since you know several anons on here hate you so dont even try it. I never talk to u and never will. Thats why u attacked me attention seeking stalker type madness.

        • This is the truth, people alway say “niggas be killing up niggas”. This is true but it’s like that in all races and groups of people. 86% of blacks murdered are killed by blacks and 83% of whites murdered are murdered by other whites. a lot of Blacks have been tricked into thinking that we are so much worse that other races of people. People are so mentally confined into the section that they live in, what they see and hear but I know better than that.

          • Blacks have a different history than whites.I don’t care what they do but I do know we shouldn’t be killing each other,disrespecting our woman,not being a part of the children we make lives,gangbanging,selling drugs to our people,cooning etc,etc.

            According to some who have studied the subject,allegedly more Blacks now have killed more of us than the kkk back in the day,that is disgraceful.

          • I hear ya Eddie.. But hence the media storm surrounding all of these yte officer’s killing black men… I am now wondering if all of the murders that we hear about in the hood are actually committed by another black man/woman. Just because they (media) report it, does not mean that it was black on black crime. Most of the time we just assume that it is because several of these crimes go unsolved. I notice that not much manpower is even focused on solving these murders. Hello! The yte police could be capitalizing on the inner city killings and committing some killings of their own.. Just sayin’

    4. Right UNK.. and if so who called the hit. We all know that Tupac, Biggie and Jam Master Jay were definitely hits!! The authorities can easily unravel and get to the bottom of the who and why involving these murders but its a cover up. The Bodyguard and the dead P.I. made that perfectly clear in the death of Tupac. The authorities treat these deaths like any other street murder. Little money and resource if any is spent to investigate and solve the murder. More reason for black young men and women to stop killing one another. Leaving brother’s dead in the street and the powers that be cut them open and take their organs… Then used to give life to someone whom they feel is worth saving and also to be used for scientific experiments and research. To create clones, half animal humans and whatever else they are doing in the lab. What better race to do it with than blacks whom they feel are exceptional yet nonessential to society. “They”, admire us yet debase us as a people. If we ever stood undivided we would be something to reckon with.. No Doubt!!

    5. Aon 11:15 Yes I agree, there are crimes against humanity involved in every race, however, genocide is more prevelent in the black race than any other race inside of America. The same fact is true that all races protest but it is always the inner city that suffer’s the most damage. I guess one could say that is because the protest are conducted in specific area’s. That is true, however, it is about what is allowed. I recall the recent protest in Oakland CA over the Mike Brown verdict…when the mob started to get close to certain areas of Oakland mainly (yt) the authorities converged in solid force and stopped the crowd from moving any further. It was like World War III had commenced. There were helicopter’s everywhere, smoke from bombs, large police vehicle’s blocked off each end of the intersection.. It was clear that this is where the buck stops and if anyone intent on moving forward would have definitely been arrested or shot. The protester’s got the message because that is where it ended. I’m just saying if circumstance’ were different we would not see this systematic warfare go on and on. You would never see black men killing white men the way they kill other black men because they would not allow it to go on. Black men kill other black men because they can get away with it.

    6. If people are saying some musicians are worth more if their dead than alive if that’s true why is Jay Z, Beyonce, Kanye, Mariah Carey, Britney Spears, etc still alive. We lost Pac, Biggie, Eazy E, Michael Jackson, Whitney, Aaliyah, and there’s still a void in the industry with them being gone.

        • Chuuch @freddy mercury and u can add lil Wayne to that list too anon 12.11 cuz if he don’t do something quick baby gon make his ass a classic . WATCH!!!!

      • Those artist still have good earning potential with the exception of 2 perhaps. Even so, they can earn well in other areas outside of music and they play along well.

        The ones that were lost, were pretty strong willed not easily controlled.

    7. The original human beat box (of the fat boys) died of a supposed heart attack and his original beats are used every where, even hbo white dominated shows use his material. ODB music is also everywhere. Cant remember how ODB died. Who is getting the proceeds, are their families being paid? Just wondering.

    8. Dayum only 1 story a day?

      Have they got too lazy to not even make up some lies and bullshit?

      There is always a person ready to believe whatever they read…

      • I hope that I am wrong, but I don’t think that this site will be around much longer. There is definitely something wrong.

        I will miss the people who post here very much. 🙁

        • We will see…….The content is really weak lately.

          How hard is it to make up some interesting lies/stories?

        • 19:34

          I know I will miss some folks on here too. There are certain Anons that I am partial too, ELTH, DaRadiant 1…. And on and on… But the Anons are funny as heck and I love them!

    9. It was said that an explosion was heard before the fire in NY today. Can anyone give an update, dont trust the news.

    10. when are you motherf*cker’s gonna understand music is nothing but a “Thing” of the past

      music today is all about “Sex And Money” people today rather worship money than “God”

      because of these Celebs are constantly bragging about Their money in music video’s
      it’s interesting how they ain’t mentioning “How They Are Making Money Or What Do They Have To Do For It”

      a well educated Black teen turn down a full scholarship to became a “Rapper” He should of taken Their offer
      hip hop is nothing but “Easy Money”

      that’s why rappers like Pitbull and other rappers who’s making chit load of money rapping about nonsense

      Jordin Sparks has changed, before She was singing about “Love” and “Relationship” now She’s singing about “Sex” “Phucking Random Men”

    11. i am a proud conspriacy theorist most of these black celebs were murdered by a high authority. think about everytime they die they overdose. i know they do drugs but, come on everytime. these celebs know going in that they are being programmed when you break the program (oath) they kill you. pimp c
      odb(ol dirty bastard), michael jackson. where given (lethal injections). people refuse to believe suge had nothing to with pac death but he did even kiddah jones know the truth. pac was set up from the get go because of his connection to the black panthers and he started exposing things he shouldn’t talk bout his mother is still in hiding. aaliyah death still puzzles me she was in florida fliming “rock the boat” then go to the lsland to flim the second half of the video. aaliyah and her friends were set up the pliot was not on crack or nor was it overloaded. the plane engine was shot down and her family knew she was going to die and they were paid off and dame and rachel marry 2 years later hmm? “TIN HAT” Signing off. but really these are just theories.

        • No Stephen,

          You keep it real, and you refuse to be satisfied with surface explanations.
          I dig your style my friend.

      • there was plans of whites getting rid of gangster rappers they considered threats and radicals.

        gangster RAp was too influential and negative in 93 it stopped being fun once Clinton hit office rappers started going to jail and getting in trouble.

        snoop, pac, flasvor flav, and jd from the lench mob was all arrested.

        ice t fought the system until the fbi and the government threatened to kill him and his daughter if he didn’t remove copkiller from the bodycount album.

        pac brought a lot of stuff on himself getting into fights with rival rappers and beating up that director it was cool til he went on tv bragging about it.

        all of a sudden you had bi coastal hip hop beefs thank you tim dog.

        rappers fighting over who started gangster rap and this side the best side we the craziest, we killers, we got guns, we’ll shoot you, we got the finest hoes whatever.

        the east west beef was kind of stupid.

        the deathrow-ruthless beef was stupid it could have been handled.

        there was enough money to be made.

        eazy and suge could have joined forces suge and puff could have joined forces but everybody wanted tro fight and kill over music.

        and the dead ones are being exploited.

      • Dame was her handler ala Jay z and Beyoncé u can’t have 2 number 1 divas so that’s why Aaliyah was sacrificed so they could groom b

        • Well Slim, Beyonce and Rhianna seem to coexist fairly well and Jay Z is f*cking both of them and they live with it. Aaliyah was a cute girl, but she was never going to be as big as either of them.

          Aaliyah was not sacrificed. I know it fits the narrative of what people like to believe, but not every celebrity death is a sacrifice, and that one was definitely not.

          • you don’t find her death strange go look at the obituary she died on the 25th that is a ritual killing why did she have to the bahamas to flim when she was in florida could have finshed the whole thing. aaliyah death was bullshit and i do believe dame and her family was apart of it. she and her friends were set up the plane was shot down. the pilot was not on crack nor was it overweight. dame marries rachel and he rises to the top then a year later the pilot “kills” himself man come on. even whitney houston and left eye know her death was bullshit. and guess what left eye died on the 25th and whitney was begging clive to spare her life whitney knew she was going to die. these were “blood sacrifce” offerings and these same powerful people kidnap and uses children for sacrifices. you have a right to your own opinions and i respect that. “TIN HAT” signing off

            • Stephen I wish I could have a private conversation with you about this. I have spoken on it here before, and I know everyone is tired of me stating the same facts which debunk the notion that Aaliyah was “sacrificed.” Here’s the Readers Digest version: My brother is an Air Force Academy grad who is now a commercial pilot. He had a real thing for Aaliyah, so after the crash, he dug into and read all the NTSB reports about the incident. Those reports, along with his superior knowledge as an aeronautical engineer convinced him that the aircraft was way over loaded with cargo and people. It could not achieve lift because of that. When a plane cannot lift, it cannot fly. If the HNIC of Aaliyah’s entourage had not been stubbornly insistent on going immediately on that aircraft, they would be alive today. The cocaine is a red herring, because a marginal amount of coke in a pilot’s system should not affect his ability to fly. What it could show however, is that he may have been a coke head who needed money quick. He knew that if he refused the flight(as he should have) it could hit him in his wallet, so his greed clouded his judgement.
              I get a kick out of your “tin hat” posts, and I can see that you spend a lot of time delving into conspiracies. Keep this in mind, when something terrible happens, whether it’s 9/11 or Aaliyah’s premature and needless death, the human mind finds it so difficult to accept that such horror can occur in the win of an eye. It’s far easier to believe a much more nefarious force was behind the tragedy. But st like we’ve seen with the German pilot, people do horrible things all the time without any regard for their fellow humans.
              Life really is like that.

              • My thing is this… Most people are afraid to fly. That being said.. If a Pilot is telling you that the weight will cause unsafe flying conditions and the plane may crash.. who would insist on keeping their luggage full of clothes on board. Please.. who doe’s that. Me, myself I would have volunteered to take the next flight.

                It just seem’s to me that all of the passenger’s would have been alarmed by that and they would’ve acted accordingly. I just can’t see all of them sitting there like a bunch of dumb bunnie’s saying so what, let’s go. C’mon now!

                I’m with Stephen on the fact of why they had to go way to the Bahamas… all of that water in Florida.. are you kidding me. just sayin’

              • Sher You are projecting your feelings into the equation. I agree to the extent that YOU would have waited for the larger plane and thus you would be alive.
                I don’t agree that most people were afraid to fly before 9/11. The sort of folks who were in that entourage(musicians, dancers, hair and makeup, filming crew) spend half their time on airplanes. It is as routine to them as taking the bus is to regular folks. Then add in the “celebrity” factor.
                They are coddled and catered to daily. They are not accustomed to hearing the word “no.”
                They want what they want when they want it. The rules do not apply to them. Get the picture?
                If you or Stephen chose to think that it was dastardly plan to eliminate Aaliyah, so be it.
                I’ve given you logical, rational reasons why it happened, and as I said earlier, I have argued this point until even I am tired of hearing it. LOL The thing about conspiracy theories is that some are sound and some are absurd; and the trick is distinguishing between the two.

              • people are not making up conspiracies because the truth is too terrible, they are seeing a pattern of weird events that eventually start to seem orchistrated because of the strange circumstances and coincidences surrounding the tragedies not to mention celebrities themselves exposing everything from pedophilia, to mind control, to mansion parties that are giant orgies so its not far fetched that murder would be somewhere in there too

        • never bought that aaliyah died just so bey can blow up.

          dame never had nothing to do with beyonce’s career bey was already popular with dc at the time of aaliyah’s death.

          but I agree aaliyah’s death did leave a spot to fill and I always thought ashanti had her moment first.

      rappers and people aFFILIATED WITH THE SO CALLED GANGSTER RAP STYLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO BE INCARCERATED.

      LAST TIME A WHITE ROCKER OR METAL HEAD WAS MURDERED

      DARYL DIMEBAG ABBOT
      PHIL HARTMAN KILLED BY WIFE BEFORE SHE BLEW HER BRAINS OUT.
      JOHN LENNON
      SHAron taTE AND THE OTHER VICTIMS OF THE MANSON FAMILY.

      SORRY BUT EVEN THOUGH WHITE PERFORMERS WORSHIP THE DEVIL THEY BARELY GO TO PRISON NUMEROUS TIMES AND GET SHOT OR KILLED IN DRIVEBY’S.

      BUT AS IN ALL DRUG OVERDOSES ARE THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH DFOR MOST ROCK MUSICIANS.

      • It's likely many of those were sacrifices… One less talked about is Mausberg. He was shot and killed while being robbed. Killers were never found, no suspects, no investigation, no nothing. Now quik on the surface seems like a real good dude, but I knowing this industry; I wouldn't put anything past him. It could all just be a facade and he could be just as evil as suge knight and every other puppet for the agenda.

    13. A lot those rappers were caught up in that life especially on the west coast. The bay area rapper Jacka, Mac Dre, Magnolia Shorty,Big L,Big Pun, Lil Jojo was a blood sacrifice for that Chicago rapper Chief Creep. The industry has always been corrupt.

    14. Sam Cooke was killed by some woman in a hotel. Marvin Gaye was killed by his father. Malcolm X grandson was killed in Mexico. Shakir Stewart and Chris Lighty had similar fates.

      • Sam Coome was beaten to death. Etta James and his family commented on that.
        He was nurdered because he would not turn over his publishing rights and he wanted to distribute his music.

        I am laying back reading this thread, and I see a few irresponsible statements. I wonder what is going on today?

        • OMG ….MURDERED…NOT NURDERED…

          These statements and these typos got me messed up.

          No more comments today.

        • you failed the open book test

          On December 11, 1964, at the age of 33, Cooke was fatally shot by Bertha Franklin, the manager of the Hacienda Motel in Los Angeles, California. After an inquest, the courts ruled Cooke’s death to be a justifiable homicide. Since that time, the circumstances of his death have been consistently called into question by Cooke’s family and his wide circle of friends and acquaintances.

          • Look beyond the surface. Look at the death photos. Read what family and friends said. Sam Cooke was young, handsome and famous. He did not need to chase tail. Sam was murdered because he wanted to make all his money off of his music.

            • That is absolutely correct 19:03. Go on YouTube and pulled up Satan’s Son. It has seven parts to it, but its nothing but the truth.

              • Girl,

                I can’t do Sam Cooke anymore. When I saw the photo and read up on him I feel into a very deep depression. It hurt super bad. It hurt so bad I could not cry and that made my depression worse.

                Artists stories who break my heart:

                Marvin Gaye
                Stevie Wonder
                The Jackson 5
                Sam Cooke
                Little Willie John.

        • KING FOUND OUT WHAT THOSE WHITES REALLY THOUGHT ABOUT HIM.

          YES OLD KING FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY.

          WHITEX SHOWED HIM WHAT THEY THOUGHT OF HIS DREAM.

      • That is revisionist history. The schools before integration were so incredibly bad, the poor kids graduating were helpless to make anything of themselves other than to do menial labor. There was a lot of good that came from integration, but I think you had to live in that era to fully understand that.
        Sure, black folks had their own businesses, which is great, but how would you like to be told that you cannot use bathroom or drinking fountain because you re unclean and subhuman?
        Younger folk who romanticize the days of segregation simply have no idea of the indignities suffered by our forbears. It was horrible and dehumanizing.

        • The “good old days”. Yeah, when your black ass had better be off the streets after a certain time, when cops could just walk into your house and sit down and start eating at your table without your permission, when our women had to be touched and groped just walking down the street and always feeling unsafe Touched and groped by WHITE MEN.

          Yeah, these twenty and thirty somethings watch TV and movies and think that because Black people were inside the house with whites that meant something. IDIOTS. Y’all don’t know the half of it.

          There’s nothing romantic about raising somebody else’s kids and yours too. There’s nothing wonderful about carrying other people’s bags while they enjoy a life the law says you can’t enjoy. Please. Spoiled fools, just wait. We are going back to the 1950’s and they will see for themselves what life was about and they will hate it,only this time around they won’t go into the street like we did. Until of course it’s too late.

          Idiots.

          • Sometimes the younguns here just don’t get it. I don’t blame them though, because they either haven’t been schooled or just plain don’t understand what their elders’ lives were like. I guarantee you that there isn’t a black person 55 years old or older who would ever want to return to the days of segregation.

        • Get out of my ear with all that bull shit, integration is why we can anything to our damn selves, cause ofwhite America having hundreds of black wall Street all over the place. Do you think the gubbment want to deal with that.? There was plenty of well to do successful black people back then blacks that was highly educated as well. If America never put integration in we could’ve took this place to world court for crimes against humanity along time ago.

        • However bad those school houses were, those people came away with an education. They could read, write and do arithmetic. My mother was educated in one of those school houses. Her grades were so good someone wanted to send her to college. All of my aunts can read very well, and think very well. They did not have much of a school but everyone wanted to learn. Education was precious as gold. My mom and my aunts were all educated in a one room school house in 1950s Indiana and I bet they can out think any of your so called intellectuals today.

      • “It was put in place to wipe out blacks”

        Then white folks must LOVE black people very much, because whites fought integration to the death in most states.
        In the south, they continue to fight it still today.

    15. One thing no one can survive, no one:

      Everybody liking you
      and
      Everybody hating you

      Black folk, I am talkin’ to you. You betta get right and stop bein’ whores like the africans who sold our ancestors. It is gettin’ real out here. The majority of murder is internecine, but proportionally, black folk kill they own and then make a rap song or a movie (American Gangster) and glorify it.

      All this police shooting and killing of unarmed black men, the lynching last week in MS of a black man ruled a suicide…

      ain’t nuthin’ but the Most High removing his divine protection from the disobedient. You don’t call up the devil, cuz he will show up. You make rap songs about bitches and hoes (your sisters and mamas) and droppin’ a ni**a (genocide) and what do your demonic worshipping azzes think gonna happen?

      Power of life and death is in the tongue.

    16. She needs to quit analyzing and admit the ugly truth. Hip-Hop is the only genre of music that actively encourages those within it to promote hatred and violence against their own kind…The Truth! A bunch of sellouts they have become, because, that’s what we love to do as blackmen…Sell Out! Love to run our trap about this and that, but, will bend over so fast to get over. This is the Achilles Heel we dare not discuss out in the open. So sensitive we’ve become. A 10-year old young brotha was killed a few days ago here in Miami because of a drive-by shooting. And, negros wanna spit to us about the rappers are just telling Hood stories. Naw Man…We gotta put up or shut up with this “Devil Music” bullcrap. If they promote the genocide of our people, they get no respect. This is how it’s gotta be, regardless of feelings involved. Always analyzing Ish, that’s not doing Jack for us. Ignore the glitz and glamor, the Hood is on fire in a major way…Please Understand!

      • I agree Tyrone.
        Rap is a part of our culture and our ancestors culture. The village Griot would rap about your family ancestry in Africa. It was a positive thing. In the late 70s. And 80s it was very enlightening. In the 90s. Rap was corrupted and bastardized by certain rappers and corporations. But here is the deal…take it back, and take it to the next level. Let main stream/ lame stream keep their garbage. But the artists among us must take it back, and take it higher.

        Sorry to go on a rap tangent. You triggered my thoughts.

        • I love old school hip-hop just the same. But, the outcome is so predictable. Oftentimes, we allow outside influences to knock us off course, Why? Not thinking long-term is a handicap that we have to overcome..I’m disgusted with the crabs amongst our people. As you stated, the vibes were positive in the beginning. Now, folk can’t even go to clubs and concerts because mofos wanna buss shots all over the place…Sad Reality! My advice to other brothas…Humbleness Is The Key To Success! Appreciate The Knowledge & Wisdom!

            • You Ain’t Lying! A culture of death has taken over the industry. Self-Fulfilling Prophecy is not a hypothetical, It’s Real! Cats gotta understand that the tongue is the most lethal of all weapons. Because, words and rhetoric touch the subliminal. If we hear kill kill kill over and over again, the thought will creep into the cerebral. The record execs that push gangsta rap know us so well. As a race of men, they use our strengths against us. Competitiveness is one of those traits. Being the top dog matters to us, and we see this in sports. Hip-Hop is from the streets and bad man pack heat…Understood! Most rappers ain’t about that life, but, the posse they run with is a different story..Authenticity is another aspect, black folk want the real s**t with the exception of bootleg movies. So, in order for them to have street cred, they gotta pretend to be gangstas when they’re not. It’s a vicious cycle. Anytime we lose our people thru senseless violence, it’s a big loss. Losing so many artists to gun violence has definitely diluted the craftsmanship. Why so many engage in intra-racial genocide, that’s a long discussion. Appreciate The Feedback!

    17. Today marks the 20th anniversary we lost a legend and godfather of gangster rap Eazy E. Rest in peace.

      • And being a socalled God Father of Gangsta Rap deserves Recognition?I’m certain that’s really going to raise us up as a people.SMH

        • BA You ain’t Neva lied. Easy E sold it out and corrupted an art form leaving behind damage beyond repair.

          • CAN’T PUT EVERRYTHING ON EAZY.

            RUSSELL SIMMONS HAD RICK RUBIN’S HELP.

            and as for the east coast def jaM AND THE EAST COAST RAP SCENE MADE MILLIONS OFF GANGSTER RAP.

            GOOD OLD RUSSELL JUST SDAT BACK AND MADE THE MONEY.

            • @Crazy Cris,

              Russell Simmons never broke out the garbage that Eazy E and West coast did. I was there, I saw it. The East Coast never took the lead in lowering the bar. Russell Simmons and Company NEVER did what Eazy E did.

              • bwp was on def jam, redman was on def jam and onyx was so called ganster raP BACDAFUCCUP WAS CONSIDERED GANGSTER AND RUSSELL MADE MILLIONS OFF IT.

                BOSS WAS A GANGSTER RAPPER HER ALBUM WAS ALL ABOUT KILLING PEOPLE.

                SOUTH CENTRAL CARTEL’S SECOND ALBUM N GATS WE TRUST HELL HAVOKK THE MOPUTHPIECE EVEN CALLS OUT RUSSELL SIMMONS.

                YEAH DEF JAM SIGNED WARREN G TO IN THE EARLY 90’S.

                JAYO FELONY WAS ON DEF JAM AND HE TALKED ABOUT SMOKING SHERM AND KILLING FOLKS.

                FLESH N BONE’S ALBUM THUGS YES RUSSELL IS SO INNOCENT.

                WE KNOW HOW CRAZY DMX WAS AND JAY Z AND HIS MAFIAMUSIC WAS PART OF DEF JAM.

                WHAT ABOUT FOXY’S WHORISH ASS.

                JA RULE AND THE WHOLE MURDER INC FAM WAS PROMOTING SEX AND DRUGS AND THESE RAPPERS SAID THE N WORD TOO.

                GHOSTFACE KILLA AND WC WAS ON THERE TOO.

                SO DON’T SAY RUSSELL WAS CLEAN HE HELPED PROMOTE GANGSTER RAP Artists and got his piece of the pie too.

                Russell like everybody else followed suit after eazy and nwa blew up.

                all the r&b labels changed their format to make money.

                r&b singers started collaborating with rappers and starting to sample the same old school songs that rappers was just to sell records.

                even r&b vets like janet Jackson, r Kelly, and Mariah carey ended up working with rappers.

    18. Integration was put in put in place to wipe out black independence, be joined with the white side of America. IT was all a lie !!!! Every other culture can build up their communities but not of us. I don’t feel sorry for any Negrothat

      • Other cultures weren’t prohibited from using basic facilities and forced legally into living in ghettos designated for them and only them.
        And no one forced black folk from keeping their businesses intact following integration. Those restaurants, hotels, shops and service providers were not closed down by federal decree.
        People born after 1970 don’t have a clue about what life was like during segregation.

        • Not forced legally into living in ghettos?!!! Um our mass exodus into the ghettos came through the guise of the Vietnam war. Black men away dying and/or getting hooked on drugs, while the same drugs he’s hooked on getting shipped back to the hoods to be sold by the frank Lucas’s of the hood. Black women had to resort tohhooking cause white business had no jobs (not hiring negroes like now) could get education but no jobs. So everything left behind by brother man in the hands of his wife, was lost, cause the was not jobs. Lately blacks having been putting up real resumes online but with white names and saying ethnicity was white, and got job offerings, while posing as themselves, black, was getting no response !!! Its all a set up, for is to fail. While other cultures around us prevail by working together. Whitey don’t want to have to many enemy cause dealing with us is enough, which is why other races of people in America flourish. While we (negroes) die off slow !!!

          • Obviously you didn’t grow up in “colored town” like so many did in the years before integration. You had no choice. That’s where you HAD to live regardless if you owned the local funeral parlor and could afford better. That’s what I meant by being forced into ghettos. I was using the term in it’s truest definition: an area in which on ethnicity lives.

      • Going to college to learn about a group of people that oppresses you daily and to be put in debt for the next 40 years is not the answer either.Return to the Laws Statutes and Commandments of the most high and our problems would be over.

    19. Dozens of black men in the rap industry are dead! Jimmy Iovine, Ted Field, Clive Davis and Jerry Heller are still alive. It’s bullshit! They stole our music, our culture, made BILLIONS OF DOLLARS off of it, and so many of our brothers and a few sistas are dead. Let’s not forget the hundreds of black men locked up in prison. Why are we wasting our time and money on this stupid shit? Why are still allowing ourselves to be pimped by these satanic executive demons? Why are so many black people watching that MK-Ultra tv show Empire?

      • yes suhe is in jail right now and who’s benefitting.

        jerry heller took over ruthless when eazy died.

        whit’s gone, bobbi k in a coma and the browns and houstons are fighting while clive and the whites are just sitting back enjoying the show.

        betcha clive got a few laughs off seeing nick Gordon cry fake tears.

    20. Off Topic: Bossip published a story about Claudia Jordan that Jacky did four years ago. The story was about all of the black men Claudia has f*cked. These white owned/controlled urban blogs are 100% crap. Everybody knows CJ has been a hoe for over twenty years. Everybody knnows CJ has f*cked damn near all of black hollywood and doesn’t have shit to show for it. These ther urban websites just can’t compete or keep up.

      • You know Claudia is ALWAYS TALKING SLICK about dark skinned people. And she is known for calling people monkeys and gorillas. She said some black guy looked like and oraugatan. All I know is Claudia is in Atlanta and she better watch her mouth. Some of those ATLANTA girls are about the life and they have no problem getting her all the way together.

    21. this has been in the works for a long tome you can’t blame white people for everything with black people because our own people were willing to sell us out so they can be sucessfull. these powerful people use black celebs, athletes, musicans the promote their agenda because black people have so much faith in them (just like the gay agenda) . and CIA AND ATF uses people like tookie williams, freeway rick ross, larry hoover to push drugs in the black community to kill us off.

      • Hahaha and little did they know that they would end up killing little Caroline, Emily, and Justin years later. watch Drugs Inc on Nat Geographic Channel and it blows me away to see these hard core ghetto drug dealers with their bandanna covered mugs talking about how the demand for Heroin in the suburbs is so strong, they have stopped selling crack and weed in the hood.

        Karma.

      • That is what I can’t understand. Why did they sell out? But truth is..we are a very innovative people. All that has to be done is for the poets and musicians among us to get busy, take it back, and take it higher. Now that we know the pitfalls we can avoid them and stay independent.

      • You know Stephen,
        No shade to the homosexuals, but really the black community is only 40 million (give or take) strong. We are now experiencing a bumper of crop of gay males. This being the case, Black Americans number is going to drop significantly. If black men are sleeping with black men, and black women, with black women, where is our future?
        We will be extinct in about 30-50 years

      • AND WHERE ARE THEY NOW OLD ARNOLD MADE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF TOOKIE JUST TO GET RE ELECTED.

        BUT NOT DEFENDING TOOKIE HE LIVED A LIFE FULL OF VIOLENCE AND DEATH HE SERVED THE SATANIC AGENDA HE STARTED THE CRIPS WHICH STILL REPRESENTS DEATH TO THIS DAY.

        LARRY HOOVER IS ANOTHER AGHENT OF DEATH WHICH WAS WHY HE WAS ALLOWED TO HAVE CERTAIN PRIVILEGS IN PRISON WHAT INMATE SMOKES WEED WITH THE WARDEN AND WALKS OUTSIDE THE CELLS AT WILL WHAT INMATE GOES TO BED WHENEVER HE FEELS LIKE IT WHAT IMMATY HANGS OPUT WITH THE SECIRITY.

        LARRY HOOVER MUST HAVE BEEN AN AGENT FOR THE WHITE MAN.

        ALL THESE GANGB SYMBOLS AND SIGNS COME FROM Satanic signs blue and red are 2 shades of the scarlett woman whore of Babylon add blue and red you get purple.

        black REPRESENTS DEATH AND THE DARKNESS.

        • The Crips andBloods started out as a positive movement to help the community.
          Check the history. They were never at war with each other until…..

          • Raymond Lee Washington sounded like the devil himself. What are you talkin’ ’bout???

            Please Black folks, stop glorifying these kneegrows who sold you out and destroyed your community.

    22. God created music to glorify Himself. All things were created by Him and for Him according to the Bible.

      Pop music glorifies vain things that appeals to the carnal nature when music should be praising and glorifying Jesus Christ.

      Satan uses music to influence people to stay in sin and pull people away from God and people fall for it hook, line, and sinker.

      Check out this community exposing it https://plus.google.com/communities/112901951136111901047

      It’s time to repent of all our sins and turn to the Lord and God Jesus Christ and be saved from the wrath that is to come.

    23. This is proof we don’t care nothing about ourselves. Do country, folk, pop artists have a high murder rate? no. Why do Blacks do? WE are a very sick people and we always want to use being Black as an excuse. We always want the White man to value our lives, but how can they when we don’t value our own?

    24. listen…… black people is your fault for allowing white people to profit of our success!!

      • Its blacks fault that signed a contract Be, as for the rest of us we can learn from their failure. Its time to do our own thing !!!

        • basically nicca sold their music to white people!
          NWA had a white manager not black one!??

          so on and so on

          nicca you really f*cked up our music

          • Most blacks that does business with white business are uneducated about corporate business and finances(accounting). Never get into anything without knowledge, the only blacks that’s going to fisher is those that don’t know it and obey it. Its not totally whites fault with failing. I don’t feel sorry for non of these new blacks, they should’ve learn from those who went before them.

    25. BLACK PERFORMERS ALWAYS DIED MORE TRAGICAlly than their white counterparts.

      marvin gaye, sam cooke killed.

      david ruffin, rick james, Frankie lymon, ike turner, odb, pimp c, whitney, Michael Jackson, Gerald levert all overdosed.

      can’t forget billie holiday, aND CHARLIE PARKER OVERDOSED TOO.

      MINNIE RIPERRTON, AND DONNY HATHAWAY BOTH DIED IN THEIR EARLY 30’S.

      ROGER TROUTMAN KILLED BY HIS OWN brother.

      ROGER WAS AFFILIATED WITH A LOT OF GAngster rappers, eazy, pac, dre, snoop, e40, too short.

      how many rappewrs and singers did prison stints.

      we know why jay and r Kelly made not guilty.

      both was found not guilty and then they had a fiesta.

    26. There is a segment of black artists that stayed true to themselves. At least up until a few years ago. Techno, Rave, House all started by black people and Latino people had a hand in the House Music . But those guys started their own labels and kept their own labels. But I think lately they have been suckered into going corporate. I looked at their album art and I was in tears. I know a lot of these guys personally and I know who they were. Their album art messed me up, because I know what they have become.

    27. Anonomyus, mentioned Little Willie John, was sentenced in prison for stabbing a man. True story was this big burly man was beating him (Willie) because he felt disrespected when Willie asked him to get out a girl’s seat at a wedding reception. The guy started hitting Willie who suffered from epilepsy started having seizures while getting beat and when he came to everyone was gone expect the man who beat him who died from a knife wound. Idicating someone else stabbed him. The story is in Jerry Butler’s autobiography.

      Also Paul Williams of The Temptations DID NOT SHOOT HIMSELF TO DEATH!!

      • NOBODY BELIEVED THAT IN MOTOWN WQHEN PAUL DIED EDDIE AND DAVID STARTED NOT TO TRUST BERRY.

        BERRY GORDY TOLD EDDIE ONCE YOU DON’T KISS MY ASS ENOUGH THATS WHY YOU’RE NOT FAMOUS.

        PEOPLE ALSO SUSPECTED BERRY WAS BEHIND THE DEATHS OF FLO BALLARD AND HER HUSBAND.

        DARK CLOUDS FOLLOW THESE CELEBS.

        CAN’T SAY ITS ILLUMINATI BUT SOMEBODY’S CASTING BLACK MAGIC OR SOMETHING.

        • HEY YALL READ THIS SHIT!!

          Murder Of G-Unit Affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher Gets Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond 2nd Life Sentence

          SMOKING GUN REPORTS: Convicted Drug Kingpin and Music Executive Jimmy Henchman Questioned By Feds About Diddy Possibly Having Sex With Under Age Boys

          Manhattan federal Judge Colleen McMahon called Rosemond’s crime “heinous” and told him “there’s nothing I can do to alter your fate.” She handed down the life sentence on Tuesday, March 24.
          ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

          Jimmy “Henchman” Rosemond will never be a free man again. Already serving a life sentence for running a drug ring, Rosemond has been sentenced to a second life term for his role in the death of G-Unit affiliate Lowell “Lodi Mack” Fletcher.
          According to the NY Post, the former CEO of Czar Entertainment, hired 2 men to carry out the 2009 hit in the Bronx, New York.

          Jimmy Rosemond a.k.a. Jimmy Henchman will be sentenced to life in prison on October 25 in a Brooklyn federal court for his role in a cocaine distribution ring.

          Prior to prosecutors making the decision to give Rosemond life they held a proffer session with the former record industry executive to question him about several known acquaintances including Bad Boy Records CEO Sean Combs.

          In an article published by The Smoking Gun it was disclosed that IRS Agent Marc Van Driessche testified about some of the questioning during the proffer session.

          “We had information through other witnesses that the defendant may have made an admission to Sean Combs,” Van Driessche said.

          The nature of the admission was not discussed during further testimony. Rosemond said that he and Diddy had a “cordial relationship” and had done business together previously.

          • Rosemond stated that things turned “awkward” when an investigator showed him “naked pictures” of different women. The reason for this was not disclosed. Jimmy added that he was then “asked about entertainers sexual preferences, including, but not only, Sean Combs having sexual relationships with under age boys.”

            The purpose of the proffer session was to find out if Rosemond could offer any information that investigators could use in other crimes. In turn they would give him a lighter sentence. Prosecutors were “disappointed” in what he had to say and rejected his bid for a cooperation deal.

              • Yes it is! And what makes it so bad, all those who did this is going to start pointing fingers. Now that this shit done hit the ceiling, watch what TPTB is going to sick back and watch all this bullshit comes to a head.

            • Hey DaRadiant1

              Girl you dropped the hot tea seriously. But it had been hinted at that
              Puffy liked underage boys. Remember Usher? I think he has thing for Al B Sure’s son Quincy too. I wonder why they chose to throw Puffy under the bus? You know I have to ask…who did he piss off?

              Where is my buddy Stephen when I need him?

              You brought the heat Ma!

              • It popped up on Carribean Fever on my phablet. I was like WTF! Shit is about to be standing for real! Oh you already know they are going to start investigating all of this. Especially what U said about Diddy. Plus, he ain’t sacrifice nobody yet? Oh boy, it is going to be hot too! Now, folks are going to start pointing fingers and naming names. Ok, they done call Diddy out. But what he have to do one of the following. A) Turn himself in or cooperate with the Feds B) Side up with the Feds and give names, but that is only going to help so much and he still going to do time. C) Gone run the tptb for help. But he done went thru so much favors from them that he ain’t got no choice but to D) Sacrifice somebody even if it is him. Point blank.

    28. @crazychris. I heard about Tommy Chapman (Flo Ballard’s hubby). Was supposedly shot in a poolhall or something like that. What was the deal? I heard he was killed only a few years after Flo died.

    29. That story about the feds questiong Jimmy Henchman about Puffy and under aged boys came out last year or around the time Henchman 1st got arrested. Actually I think it was Jacky/Hsk or Rws who 1st reported the story. Also Rebecca Scott aka as Hollyhood/hiphopilluminati sort of enlightened a lot of what goes on behind the scenes in the music industry. I believe she stated in her personal story she was a drug mule for some big wigs in the music industry also like Henchman
