This year’s Mixtape Festival is nearly a month away! It takes place July 26th and 27th and we’re counting down the weeks. Every Friday leading up to the event we’ll present an exclusive playlist created by artists in the Mixtape lineup.
Kanye West sort of freestyles for two minutes in Ice-T‘s Something From Nothing: Art of Rap documentary. And by “sort of” we mean it’s presented as a freestyle, but we doubt the rap was off the top of the dome. More on that later.
Back in June when Art of Rap aired in theaters, we shared the hilarious story of Ice-T’s favorite moment in the film being Rev Run’s retell how it felt to be on top. Let’s just say that story included syrup dripping into a bathtub. If you missed a slew of rap’s greats talk about the art of rap, you’re in luck. This Thursday at 9:00 PM ET/PT, VH1 will air the documentary in full. Kanye snapping is not something you want to miss. Read more…
It’s that time of year again! When we?honor thy father by running out to?the nearest department store?to get?the big guy?a tie that?he’ll accept with a smile and probably never, ever?wear. I kid, I kid! In all seriousness, this Sunday marks yet another Fathers’ Day, and it goes without saying that the job is a tough one that deserves recognition. Dirty diapers, puberty meltdowns, giving proper advice… the list of fatherly?duties is literally never-ending. And that, my friends, is exactly why we have to hand it to the gentlemen?who’ve made it on?our Top 20 Daddy Tally list.
Not only are these distinguished men highly successful in the ultra-competitive music industry, but they’ve managed to achieve their success while also fathering?HUGE tribes of children. That’s right, each papa bear on our Top 20 list has upwards of five children, and whether it’s serial philanderer Bob Marley, sperm donor extraordinaire David Crosby (hey Melissa Etheridge!) or rumored father of 75 bouncing babies (!!!), Screamin’ Jay Hawkins, they all have more than “earned” their spot.
