Ask J. Cole about when he realized that the traditional life of a platinum rap star didn’t suit him and he’ll tell the story of the 2013 BET Awards, when a stylist dressed him in a loud Versace sweater that two other people ended up wearing on the red carpet. He’ll talk about meetings with label executives and personal heroes who encouraged him to make musical decisions that, deep down, he never felt comfortable with. He’ll recall an awakening to the potency of the love of the woman he’d been with for years. And he’ll remember his trip in the wake of the killing of Michael Brown to Ferguson, Mo., where the most valuable thing he found he could do was just to listen.

And so, a couple of years ago, after he’d released two platinum albums, he began to make changes. A move back down to this part of the country, not far from where he grew up, in Fayetteville. Meditation every day, or as often as he could manage. Marriage. A commitment to asking about the needs of others rather than only his own. And a decision to make music that spoke to his own creative and emotional idiosyncrasies, no matter how far it strayed from that of his hip-hop superstar generational peers.

Charlie Murphy, a performer on “The Chappelle Show” and Eddie Murphy’s older brother, has died. His rep Domenick Nati confirmed to Variety that the star lost his battle with leukemia. He was 57.

Murphy lent his comedic talents to the Comedy Central sketch show as both a writer and an actor.

His “Charlie Murphy’s True Hollywood Stories” sketch replayed encounters with various celebs such as Rick James and Prince when he was a member of his brother’s entourage.

The elder Murphy — sometimes credited as Charles Murphy — also served as a writer on his brother’s movies, including “Vampire in Brooklyn” and “Norbit.”

He was also an accomplished voiceover actor, working on “The Boondocks,” “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” and the video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Murphy was slated to appear on the next season of “Power.”

“Starz sends our deepest condolences to Charlie’s family and friends. He joined ‘Power’ for our upcoming season, and his talent shines in every scene. We were fortunate to have worked with him,” the network said in a statement.

We have a classic with a dope video to it attached by that undeniable 80’s flavor. Wardell Mahone and Vernon Lynch, Jr. formed the group at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, New Jersey. They needed a DJ so they approached Terrence Sheppard in 1988. Ain’t Nothin To It is off ther ’88 debut, after which two more albums followed.

This post is also dedicated to Charlie Murphy who worked behind the scenes with K-9 Posse and is also a half-brother of Vernon Lynch, Jr. (both brothers of Eddie Murphy). On their 1988 self-titled debut, Charlie Murphy was credited as the album’s executive producer as well as songwriter on two songs. He also made an appearance in the video for the duo’s first single This Beat Is Military.

Produced by Bobby “Bobcat” Ervin

RIP Charlie Murphy (July 12, 1959 – April 12, 2017)

Ponekad snježi u travnju, ponekad pada ljubičasta kiša, a ponekad nas napuste glazbeni velikani kakav je bio – Prince.

Prošlo je godinu dana od kad se to dogodilo, pa ćemo se ponovo okupiti na istom mjestu da obilježimo obljetnicu i sjetimo se koliko nam je značio.

U njegovu čast pozivamo vas na Prince Rogers Nelson ‘all night special’ u Vinylu – na noć zabave kakvu bi i on sam volio.

Njegovu glazbu, obrade njegovih skladbi kao i one iz slične funky obitelji – za vas će cijelu noć puštati DJ Phat Phillie, a pripremili smo vam i posebne tematske koktele i shootere…

Pridružite nam se da nazdravimo za najboljeg svih vremena i preslušamo najbolje iz njegove fenomenalne diskografije.

Ulaz je slobodan!
