Today In Hip Hop History: ‘Boyz N Da Hood’ Released In Theaters 27 Years Ago 

 

 

On this day in Hip Hop history, John Singleton’s Boyz in the Hood hit theaters across the country and became an instant classic. 

This Oscar-nominated film starring Ice Cube and Cuba Gooding Jr. depicts the life of three friends in South Central Los Angeles and how they cope with the daily trials and tribulations that come with growing up in the ‘hood. Serving as a fictional inside look into some of the realities described in popular lyrics of the era, this film was one of the first of its kind, bringing the truth of the ghetto to a larger audience. 

Before Hip Hop culture was popular culture, there was rarely any representation of rap in media. Through this film, John Singleton was able to shine a light on a reality that’s rarely given any attention in this country; a reality of pain and adversity knew and felt by a large portion of this world but rarely given a narrative. The only films out that were depicting urban life and culture at the time where the blaxploitation films of the 70s and 80s, which usually glamorized negativity.  The difference however between Boyz in the Hood and other movies focusing on the various ghettos of this country is the positive “Increase the Peace” mantra that served as an underlying theme, bringing a trend of responsibility to the “rap movie” genre. 

Commercially the film was a success, bringing in $57.5 million in box office while in theaters and was nominated for both Best Director and Best Original Screenplay at the 64th Academy Awards, making John Singleton both the youngest and first African American director ever nominated for the award. The film’s soundtrack, released July 9, 1991, featured tracks from Ice Cube, Too $hort, Tony! Toni! Tone! and 2 Live Crew. It peaked at #12 on the Billboard 200 chart and #1 on the US R&B/Hip-Hop chart.

Pornhub Is Now Hosting Banned U.K. Drill Rap Videos 

 

Following YouTube’s removal of a number of drill rap videos, due to a request from U.K. law enforcement, Pornhub has decided to pick up the mantle by hosting such sensitive music clips. This isn’t exactly new territory for the adult website, however, as they have posted NSFW visuals from the likes of Coolio and Mykki Blanco in the past, Genius points out.

Now, fans of 1011, Block 6, and 410, among other acts, can once again enjoy their videos in full on Pornhub, having since been removed from YouTube. The ban stems from U.K. authorities insisting that drill rap is somewhat responsible for a raise in crime rate. 

For now, it remains to be seen if artists will be compensated for their material appearing on Pornhub but we’ll be sure to update the story with more details as it develops.. 

At the end of last month, Pornhub announced that it added subtitles for deaf and hard-of-hearing viewers.

6ix9ine Arrested for Texas Mall Attack 

 

The “Gummo” rapper was taken into custody at JFK Airport after he returned from his European tour, reports TMZ. He was wanted for allegedly choking a 16-year-old kid in January at Houston’s Galleria Mall. Cops were enforcing a warrant out of Houston for the mall attack.The alleged victim, Santiago Albarran, says he ran into 6ix9ine at the mall on Jan. 6 and started recording him on his phone. Albarran claims Tekashi turned around and told him to delete the video before grabbing him by the neck as his bodyguards surrounded him. Albarran reported the incident to cops, who documented the scratch marks on Albarran’s neck. 

6ix9ine’s team was reportedly aware of the arrest warrant, and intended to deal with it. They also believe that the NYPD should not have arrested him and extradited him to Texas for what’s ultimately a misdemeanor case. 

Just last month, 6ix9ine was named a person of interest in the attempted shooting of Chief Keef outside the W Hotel in Times Square. 6ix9ine was reportedly in L.A. at the time of the shooting and has denied any involvement.

Video: 'L&HH' Star Tommie Lee Arrested Again... For Disorderly Conduct 

 

"Love & Hip Hop Atlanta" star Tommie Lee must really want a judge to throw her behind bars 'cause she was arrested again. 

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Tommie was busted early Monday morning in Atlanta outside of the Royal Peacock club after a cop told her to get out of the roadway where he was directing traffic ... and she allegedly ignored his instructions and got belligerent. 

The tipping point ... cops say Tommie struck a nearby valet working for the venue in the head, and that's when officers made their move to detain her. We're told the valet didn't want to press charges, but cops arrested Tommie anyway and booked her for disorderly conduct while under the influence. 

It's unclear what cops think she was on, but booze could spell big trouble -- as in, jail time -- for Tommie. Just 2 months ago a judge ordered her to wear an alcohol monitoring device, and stay out of trouble. 

She's definitely failed on at least one front.

Legal Documents: DJ Nabs Accuses Nas Of Sleeping With Girlfriend 

 

But wait, DJ Nabs left his wife for the girlfriend but then said the woman was accused by another man of sleeping with the Hip-Hop legend. 

This one is going to take some work to try and break down. Atlanta Hip-Hop figurehead DJ Nabs has accused Nas of sleeping with his girlfriend and confronted the rapper via a letter, in which he admitted that he left his wife for the woman in question. 

Page Six has the exclusive details: 

“On May 19th, 2018 after my performance in Atlanta with the Youngbloodz, my girlfriend didn’t come home one night. After confronting her and getting the silent treatment, I discovered on my own, texts and emails, that [proved] she had a sexual relationship” with the rapper, dating back to 2014, he wrote in a letter, seen by Page Six. 

Nabs says in the missive that when he showed Santos the evidence, “she defiantly admitted to sleeping with [Nas] the night she didn’t come home,” claiming that she and Nabs “were over” at the time, and defended “the explicit texts I discovered saying, ‘the sexual texts are a minuscule part of our friendship.’ ” 

Nabs told us he fell in love with Santos while he himself was married to another woman. He claims Santos had just broken up with another man — who also accused her of cheating with Nas — but he ignored the warning signs. 

“[I thought] it was . . . acting out of insecurity and just accepted Nas was a friend of hers . . . She was sleeping with Nas during our relationship,” he said. 

The outlet adds Nabs partly went public with the details to apologize to his wife for leaving her for another woman. Yikes.

Rick Ross Sued For Allegedly Stealing "Maybach Music" Tagline 

 

Rick Ross is being sued for allegedly copying his famous “Maybach Music” tagline from another rapper, according to TMZ. 

Young Muhammad, whose real name is Ishaq R. Muhammad, claims he worked with Rozay on “Caprice Music,” a 2007 record on which Ross can be heard repeating the phrase. Muhammad claims this birthed the “Maybach Music” catchphrase the MMG boss has been using ever since — with no credit to him. 

Ross released the JAY-Z-assisted “Maybach Music” in 2008 and launched his Maybach Music Group imprint in 2009, but Muhammad claims he trademarked “Caprice Music” in 2006. 

In 2017, Muhammad threatened to sue Ross for intellectual property theft. Now, he’s followed through and also named Roc Nation in the suit. The case will go to small claims court since Muhammad is seeking a sum of $9,999. 

Rozay and his team have yet to respond.
