R&B legend Kashif has passed away at the age of 56. He was found at his Los Angeles home on Monday morning. Police believes that he died on Sunday night of natural causes.
He was the singer and producer who was widely credited with introducing the synthesizer to R&B. He worked with Berry White, Evelyn “Champagne” King, Whitney Houston and many more. Janet Jackson sampled “I’m In Love,” the song that was written and produced by Kashif.
The National Museum of African American History has opened in Washington, D.C. A concert was held on the opening day where Public Enemy, The Roots and The Living Colour Sunday preformed.
On this event Public Enemy preformed classic cuts and they have dedicated their preformance of “Flight Power” to actor Bill Nun.
The Roots dedicated the bend set to “anyone, anywhere who has ever lifted a camera or a voice, who’s ever lifted a fist or a flag, or taken a knee against social injustice,” says Billboard.
We are all witnesses of two shootings ( Keith Scott and Terence Crutcher) and we can say that racial tensions are rising. Obama has said during his speech that the African American story “perhaps needs to be told now more than ever.”
A few short years ago, the future looked grim for Torrence “Boosie Badazz” Hatch. In 2012, while the rapper from Baton Rouge, La., was serving an eight-year sentence on drug charges, he stared down a first-degree murder charge that could have landed him on death row if convicted. A jury found him not guilty that May and Boosie’s lawyers subsequently managed to get him released early on the drug charges, allowing him to get back to his family and making music.
Since his release on March 5, 2014, Boosie has been on a tear, releasing seven mixtapes, his sixth solo album, Touch Down 2 Cause Hell, the record label compilation Trill Entertainment Presents: Trill Fam – Respect Is a Must, and a collaboration album with C-Murder, Penitentiary Chances. More important, he beat kidney cancer after doctors diagnosed him in November 2015.
With his next solo album, Boosie Badazz: Bigger and Badder Than Ever, due out later this year, the 32-year-old stopped by GGN to chop it up with the big homie Snoop Dogg. Boosie remains on parole until 2018, so there’s no smoking, but the two stars discussed his defining relationship with Pimp C, suspect marijuana laws, business lessons, cancer, fatherhood, eye-popping gold chains, and much more.
Twenty years after his death, Tupac Shakur remains perhaps the most discussed and analyzed hip-hop artist of all time. But while reporting my new book Original Gangstas: The Untold Story of Dr. Dre, Eazy-E, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, and the Birth of West Coast Rap—which includes over 100 interviews with principal players from the era—I uncovered lots of new information about him, from the beginning of his career to his Death Row days. One of those scoops—that Biggie asked Tupac to manage him—broke a few weeks ago, but here are ten more things you didn’t know about Tupac.

1000volts project represents a collaboration of Redman and Los Angeles producer Jayceeoh. They have released a new audio from their project. The song is named Bitch I’m Lit and it has some elements of dubstep in it. The sound is different from the one that we are used to hear from Redman, but it’s not good to discuss about taste so it is better for you to listen to the song and make your own mind about it.
