In a feature with Live Nation TV, Big Boi of the legendary Hip-Hop group Outkast gives us an inside look at his dog breeding business.
The video features Big Boi and his younger brother James Patton’s business , where they breed American Bullies , French Bulldogs,and English Bulldogs.

Big Boi mentions Antonio “LA” Reid as the person who is responsible for signing Outkast to their first major label at Arista Records.
The man not only influenced Outkast but also inspired Big Boi to monetize his love for dogs as well.
“Business wise I was taught by LA Reid,” Big Boi said. “He always taught me to invest in what you know. With Outkast, when we first got our first publishing check, we went out and bought equipment to produce and then we started producing on our second album.”
According to Big Boi, Outkast’s invested into their own equipment so that allowed them to keep producing costs low and build the massive “Stankonia” studio in Atlanta, thanks to LA Reid’s mentorship.

Seems like Big Boi also had a big passion towards dogs which made him and his brother take dogs from the street and nurse them back to health while also hiding them from their mother when they were young .They also named themselves “hood veterinarians”
As Big Boi puts it, “When it’s all said and done I just want to sit back with my animals in the midst of the trees and the forest and just be peaceful.”

I’m gettin’ mad chills listenin’ to this super dopeness I used to bump back in the day on a little radio. Timeless material from a timeless album by the one and only KRS-One . Higher Level is off his incredible solo debut Return Of The Boom Bap. In my opinion, this album is simply KRS-One at his peak.

One of my all time favorite instrumentals, immortal Premier sh*t. Recorded in the legendary D&D Studios.

Produced by DJ Premier

Statik Selektah gave a little interview for Hip Hop DX in which he spoke about the recently released single with 2 Chainz entitled “Smoke Break” and during the talk he had admitted that he was inspired by the pop culture rise of DJ Khaled.

“Not even his work ethic because I’ve always had that work ethic, but the fact that he’s elevating and elevating at the age he’s at,” explained Statik. “It’s like you know what? I have to keep elevating. Even though I didn’t want to do compilations anymore, it’s so much new talent and voices as well. It’s going to be a universal vibe.”

Mylo the Cat aka Adam Schleichkorn, Video Project Manager at Driven Local and the creator of several mashups of Hip-Hop bangers with Muppet videos, has done it again. While not much is known about “Mylo,” over the years, the cool cat has seamlessly fused together visuals of Dr. Teeth performing as Wu-Tang Clan’s ODB, Gonzo performing as Digital Underground’s Humpty Hump, and many many more. Now, Mylo has brought together two of America’s most beloved duos.

Parting from the established trademark of using Muppet characters, for the most recent clip, Mylo turns to animation, using MTV’s iconic animated troublemakers Beavis and Butthead as the lead characters. They are used to channel the coolness of one Method Man and Redman, in performing Red and Meth’s classic “Da Rockwilder,” from their 1999 album ˝Blackout˝! Anthems tend to come and go, but Method Man and Redman‘s “Da Rockwilder” has proven to be a turn-up anthem for the new century, well after its 1999 debut. As you can see the video perfectly
synchs the two rapper’s vocals with the lip movements and gesticulations of the two cartoon pranksters. Beavis transforms into Redman, and Method Man gets to be Butthead.
