The first novel to truly capture the fast and furious world of hip-hop -- one in which the line between art and life is blurred for two ambitious MCs whose battle to be #1 is fought with weapons and words.
Rappers Flawless and Hannibal are two talented young men moving toward the same dream: to be the best, to take over the world, to see the big picture, to become the most respected rap artists of their generation. Along the way, they battle the business of mainstream hip-hop, industry honchos, crazy fans, and -- most of all -- each other. Caught up in their intense rivalry are Erika, Flawless's sister, and Micah, Hannibal's protegé, two young lovers whose loyalties toward each rapper threaten to ruin their future together. A vivid journey through the underworld of urban music, it is a West Side Story remixed to the movement of hip-hop; a story of desire and dreams, all tied to the beat of hip-hop eternal.

Creation of the term hip hop is often credited to Keith Cowboy, rapper with Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five. However, Lovebug Starski, Keith Cowboy, and DJ Hollywood used the term when the music was still known as disco rap. It is believed that Cowboy created the term while teasing a friend who had just joined the U.S. Army, by scat singing the words "hip/hop/hip/hop" in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of soldiers marching.Cowboy later worked the "hip hop" cadence into a part of his stage performance, which was quickly used by other artists such as The Sugarhill Gang in "Rapper's Delight".
Universal Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa is credited with first using the term to describe the subculture in which the music belonged; although it is also suggested that it was a derogatory term to describe the type of music.The first use of the term in print was in The Village Voice, by Steven Hager, later author of a 1984 history of hip hop.
Do u know they?
2013 of the hip-hop culture is still in progress.

As the rise of Roc-a-Fella's two secret weapons, Just Blaze play everywhere apparent than many low-key cross-border Kanye West, but this does not mean that the producer's own work - production, he inferior to Kanye West.
In fact, in the Hip-Hop fans at home and abroad , has been also Kanye West and Just Blaze is better argument , of course , himself took the microphone to make records and usually a lot of high profile, Kanye West generally harvested win outcome.
However, that Kanye West 's achievements as a producer Just Blaze enough humiliation classmates were wrong, downright wrong. In the production side , Just Blaze Kanye West to be better than an obvious edge. This is why Jay-Z Kanye create your own album 's songs always less than Just Blaze and more generally - Jigga is that both men 's horses, is also the largest employer. The first can be ruled out that , Jigga never afford the cost of labor , and "The Blueprint" where two people are the three , "The Blueprint 2" where Kanye majority , "Black Album" in Just Blaze three to two wins, "Kingdom Come" the hit single "Show Me What You Got" handed over to JB, "American Gangster" the most touching thing JB 's "Ignorant Sh * t".
Want to say Kanye West's production path that is more extensive than Just Blaze is nonsense , cutting off the soul sample is actually two champions, but vocal monologue sampling , Just Blaze In Beanie Sigel "Bread & Butter", Jay-Z "December 4th" where is alone this one , but not others . Also Kanye West though works a lot, but not until 2007 "Graduation" gradually get rid of the former road , think Just Blaze 2003年to Stones Throw artist MED do "Get Back" it ( yes, do not doubt you see wrong , Roc-a-Fella 's rising production will go to help a West Coast independent label guy doing beat), the same year he also completed a Joe Budden party song "Pump It Up" and "Fire", what is terrible ? Now that's scary ! JB, wins in the round , the West Bank can do - do not forget to Snoop 's "Lollipop", in that there was no MySpace era , this song but in his official at the station taken nearly two years the theme song on the east coast do - this Jiubuyongti , pop can do , independent abstraction still manage freely , Just Blaze can air surging , can come to some of the touching little flavor .
In fact, what nonsense is not to say , Kanye West his album "Late Registration" song "Touch The Sky", but also Lupe Fiasco 's debut , has been the standard of proof Just Blaze at least not inferior to Kanye, and "The Blueprint "in a " Song Cry " is enough to lay his first decade in the 21st century, the producer of the industry rankings.
Finally talk about the tide, in fact, Just Blaze also very tide, but he is clos , Kanye West and The Neptunes in the dress with a small British -style driving this trend when , Just Blaze students must stay at home to play the game - before our Hip-Hop gossip also said that the early years of production to earn money , Kanye students to buy clothes , Swizz Beatz students to buy a sports car ( By the way , said , Swizz in the producer's point of view with KW and JB compared these two , in passing ), Just Blaze students to buy games.
Of course, each person has made it unwise , not to mention Kanye and JB, that is Pete Rock and DJ Premier of this great God sometimes works out of boiled water generally short , but compared to comprehensive quality , JB is actually better than Kanye ground , do not believe the students , please listen to Freeway 's "Philadelphia Freeway" or Cam'Ron 's "Come Home With Me" these two albums , and then look song sheet , compete with established contractors .
Plus Saigon and Kool G Rap co-starred in "The Letter P" that the MV Just Blaze head that top " China " label , you should be very love this little fat .

It was an epic night last night in the city of Irvine, CA as some of the West Coast’s biggest names gathered at the Verizon Amphitheater to put on one of the year’s best shows. Snoop Dogg (not Lion), Ice Cube and Game were at the top of the bill which was rounded out by veteran acts such as The Dogg Pound, Xzibit (joined by King Tee and The Alkaholiks), Jayo Felony, Kid Frost and Rodney O & Joe Cooley.
In true Southern California fashion, the crowd was still filing in just as the 3rd act (Jayo Felony) was finishing up, however, those in the crowd were setting the party atmosphere to jams like Felony’s “What Cha Gonna Do,” Kid Frost’s “La Raza,” and Rodney O & Joe Cooley’s “Everlasting Bass.” The crowd was finally good to go once Xzibit hit the stage as he launched in to memorable cuts like “Multiply” and “What’s the Difference?” X to the Z then let his Likwid Crew brethren Tha Liks and King Tee perform their signature songs from the 21 and Over and X.O. Experience albums.
Vets Daz and Kurupt of The Dogg Pound took fans back with “We Can Freak It,” “Let’s Play House,” “What Would You Do,” and other West Coast classics. Kurupt’s little brother Scoe joined them on stage as backup as well as longtime affiliate Bad Azz.
Game was late to take the stage and the crowd was getting a little restless and rowdy as a few scuffles broke out in the seats. I also witnessed a few ambulance stretchers with people who had passed out drunk. After nearly a 40 minute wait, Game took the stage and immediately took everybody back to The Documentary days. After going in to newer songs like “Ali Bomaye,” Game was joined on stage by Tyga for a performance of “Faded,” and afterwards given his official YMCMB chain by his new labelmate. Some songs later and after 10 G-Unot’s, Game went back to The Documentary for “Hate It Or Love It” and teased a performance of “One Blood” before his time ran out. Actually, according to the timer on the side of the stage, it had been up for about 10 minutes. He killed it though. I got some feedback from audience members and they agreed with my overall assessment.
Ice Cube, WC and DJ Crazytoones took the stage and once again proved why they are one of the best live acts in all of Hip-Hop. Stage presence, chemistry, classic hits – it’s all there. The audience’s frenzy was at its height at this point and all it took was Cube’s verse from “Natural Born Killers” to set it off. The trio performed “Gangsta Nation,” “We Be Clubbin’,” “Put Your Back In To It,” “You Know How We Do It,” and “Check Yo’Self,” just to name a few. Ice Cube ended with “Today Was A Good Day” and naturally everybody in the damn arena sang along word for word… It really was a sight to behold.
Snoop Dogg took the stage and came out to an awesome screening that included clips of The Godfather, Scarface, with images of his own film performances including the one used on the Up In Smoke Tour (where Snoop and Dre blast away together in the liquor store). It was a combination of old and new for The Doggfather with sets ranging from backup dancers to just about his entire Dogg Pound crew (Daz, Kurupt, Soopafly, Bad Azz, Warren G). I noticed that quite a few in the audience were leaving so I went out to ask a few why they were leaving during Snoop’s performance and of course it came down to the usual Southern California attitude of wanting to beat the traffic. All in all, it was a truly epic night. I’ve been to quite a few shows out here on the West and this was about the livest I’ve seen an audience get. I brought back some pictures from the show. Check them out below!
