Childish Gambino - This Is America (Official Video)

Latest Issue

I had a chance to sit down with the legendary Roxanne Shante years ago, and in this interview we covered everything from how it all began to the downside of the industry. Check out the full interview! -Kira Ming

G: Let’s start off with where it all began. Such a cliché question but inquiring minds wanna know...how did you first start rhyming?

R: I would have to say that I come from Queens bridge public housing which is one of the largest housing projects in the world basically with 30,000 tenants. DJ Marley Marl happened to live in the building across from me and he worked at the Sergio Valente jean factory and he said, "Uh listen I heard that you could freestyle really well." And I said, "Yeah that’s what they say." He said well I'm willing to lay a beat down if you're willing to say a few rhymes and I said yeah I'll say a few rhymes, but can I get some Sergio Valente jeans? He said OK, and so I actually did my first record which was Roxanne's Revenge for a pair of Sergio Valente jeans. Click Here For The Full Interview

Salt-N-Pepa and En Vogue Shut Down the 2018 Billboard Awards

-Ashly E. Smith

Salt-N-Pepa's here! Formed in 1985, Salt-N-Pepa is one of the first female Hip Hop groups, and has become one of the most prolific acts in Hip Hop history. Consisting of Cheryl “Salt”James, Sandra "Pepa "Denton and originally, DJ Latoya Hanson, who was replaced by Deidra Roper to become "DJ Spinderella,” Salt-N-Pepa remains a prominent staple in Hip Hop culture. Nostalgia was definitely in the air as the Queens, New York based trio took everyone back down memory lane. Introduced by Tyra Banks, Hip Hop's leading ladies opened with their hits "Shoop," "Let's Talk About Sex," and "Push It." Soon, the 90s hit making group En Vogue appeared to help the ladies deliver their 1994 smash "Whatta Man."

 

Throughout their three decade career, the Queens, New York based trio has won numerous awards, including a Grammy Award​ for Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group in 1995.
