These Hilariously Honest Tweets Prove Nobody Cares About Columbus Day

Filed by fmdj2u7leqg6cfmdj2u7leqg6c

Columbus Day is one of those holidays where you’re not sure which institutions are open or closed — but you do know that it’s one of those weird American moments that should not be celebrated.

Leave it Twitter to keep it all the way trill about  Christopher Columbus  — you know, the guy who took full responsibility for discovering a continent that already had people on it — and all the reasons why we shouldn’t be celebrating his life.  Especially in 2019:

For people of color, we usually disagree when it comes to most things. But for Columbus Day, we can all agree that it’s BS and FOS.

Fortunately, the majority of the country is starting to realize it too. On Tuesday, The DC Council voted to rename Columbus Day to Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

CNN reports:

Councilmember David Grosso proposed the “Indigenous Peoples’ Day Emergency Declaration Act of 2019.” Grosso has championed the bill for the past five years in efforts to honor indigenous people and their contributions.

So with that being said, to hell with Columbus Day this year, and every year.

And remember, the only Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace. Hit the flip for tweets that proves no one GAF about Columbus Day.

Behind The Scenes: ‘Training Day’ Prequel To Be Set Two Days Before Rodney King Verdict

Filed by Donte DishnerDonte Dishner

One of Denzel Washington‘s most memorable roles was as Alonzo Harris in the 2001 crime movie Training Day. According to Collider, Alonzo will return to the screen, this time for an exploration of his younger years in the 1990s.

Warner Bros. has enlisted Black List writer Nick Yarborough to write the prequel and sources tell Collider that it will be set in April 1992, two days before the Rodney King verdict was announced. The racial tension was already thick in L.A. that year when video was released in 1991 of cops brutally beating King in the streets. Things finally exploded with the verdict and the riots that followed.

The original Training Day stared Washington in an Oscar-winning role. His co-star Ethan Hawke, was also nominated for an Oscar for his portrayal of the rookie narcotics detective who shadowed Washington’s character. Antoine Fuqua directed the original with David Ayer writing the script. The movie went on to gross more than $100 million worldwide.

The prequel is still in its early stages, so there’s no director on board yet. There’s also no buzz on who can play a younger Alonzo Harris although Denzel’s son, John David Washington could be a good pick considering he’s making a name for himself as an actor in movies like BlacKkKlansman. We’ll continue to keep you update as major updates surface!

Rapsody Recalls JAY-Z Finally Responding To Her Email After Joining Roc Nation

Filed by Antonio AlbertyAntonio Alberty

Los Angeles, CA – Back in July 2016, Rapsody signed to JAY-Z’s Roc Nation. While speaking with HipHopDX, Rapsody recalled JAY-Z’s late response to her first email after ficially joining his team.

“He replied back like four months later,” Rapsody said while laughing. “It was when I first signed to Roc Nation and we finished the album Laila’s Wisdom]. I sent him an early link to listen to it and download it. I wanted his ear, opinion, and I wanted to know what he thought.”

Although Jay wasn’t timely with his response, Rapsody knows that her boss believes in her ability to deliver. “It didn’t matter,” she said. “I knew how he felt. I was on Roc Nation. I knew he supported it and thought it was dope. When he replied back, months later, he told me how dope the project was.”

Speaking on the project further, Laila’s Wisdom was nominated for two Grammys including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song for “Sassy.” In addition to that, the 14-track LP earned the No. 2 slot on HipHopDX’s Best Rap Albums 2017 list and peaked at the 125th spot on the Billboard 200 chart.

Throughout her career, Raposdy has cited the Brooklyn MC as her inspiration. At one point during the interview, the Charlotte native spits Jay’s iconic lyrics from his hit single, “Takeover,” as a life lesson she’s learned.

“A wise man told me don’t argue with fools / ‘Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who,” Rapsody said in reference to Jay’s track.

#JusticeForJunior: Bronx Teen’s Attackers Sentenced To Life In Prison

Filed by amkr03eydamkr03eyd

There’s finally some news in the case of Lesandro ‘Junior’ Guzman-Feliz. All five of the Bronx teen’s attackers have reportedly been sentenced and will probably spend their entire lives in prison.

“The five members of the Trinitarios gang hit squad that savagely executed her 15-year-old boy were all slammed with life sentences in the mistaken identity machete killing that resonated across a heartbroken city last year. Three of the murderous quintet were sentenced to 25 years to life, one was imprisoned for life without parole and the youngest killer was sentenced to 23 years to life at the Bronx Supreme Court hearing,” NY Daily News reports, addingBronx Supreme Court Justice Robert Neary handed down the harsh sentences at an emotional hearing where the mother of one convicted killer proclaimed through tears that her son was innocent. ‘He didn’t kill Junior!’ she shouted before court officers steered her into a courtroom hallway. Neary was unmoved, sentencing her son Antonio Rodriguez Hernandez Santiago to 25 years to life. Convicted killers Jose Muniz, who hacked the helpless youth with a machete, and Elvin Garcia both received the same sentence. Manuel Rivera, 18, was sentenced to his lesser prison stay because of his age. Jonaiki Martinez Estrella, caught on a security video plunging a bread knife through the neck of Guzman-Feliz, was sentenced to life without parole in the June 20, 2018, slaughter. He asked for forgiveness in the merciless murders, but the apology fell on deaf ears.”

According to the site, Judge Neary had this to say Estrella: “Certain words come to mind when I think about your involvement: Senseless, savage and most of all cowardly. You and your fellow gang members chased down and slaughtered a 15-year-old defenseless boy in a gruesome manner. The court feels you deserve the maximum sentence.”

All five defendants were reportedly convicted of murder, conspiracy and gang assault. May Junior rest in peace.

Interview: Zaytoven Speaks On Working With Boosie Bad Azz & Celebrating Nipsey Hussle's Last Birthday

Filed by Kelli MichelsonKelli Michelson

How had two Southern Hip Hop power players not yet collaborated? Only God knows. But this fall, Zaytoven and Boosie Bad Azz fixed that wrong by not only recording a song together but releasing a full collaborative project, Bad Azz Zay.

Zaytoven, hailed as the “Godfather Trap”, has continued to stay relevant not only by continuing to work with his day one Gucci Mane as well as staying in the studio with Future but also by staying tapped in with the rising stars.

We spoke with Zaytoven about his recent work, including music, his role as a judge on BET’s The Next Big Thing, and spending Nipsey Hussle’s last birthday with him.

HipHopDX: Why did you want to do Bad Azz Zay, a joint project with Boosie Bad Azz?

Zaytoven: I really thought it was odd that me and Boosie never even worked together all these years. So I think when we both finally connected, we both got on the phone with each other, we felt like it would be unfair just to do a song or two with each other. We should do a project together like streets deserve to hear a full project with Zaytoven and Boosie. So we both made that call, the first conversation we had, we went from there.

HipHopDX: That is kinda crazy you guys have never had one song. You would think at some point that would have happened.

Zaytoven: Yeah.

HipHopDX: When did you first connect with him?

Zaytoven: Let me see, we put the project out in September], so it had to be maybe a month or so prior to that]. We just got on the telephone and said, “Aye man, let’s put a project together.” “Are you in town next week?” “Yeah, I’m in town.” We booked the studio and three, four days, we just knocked out just a whole lotta songs.

HipHopDX: That’s awesome, that natural chemistry.

Zaytoven: Yeah, he work like I work. I like to create on the spot, spontaneous and try to do at least four, five songs back to back and that’s how he like to work, so it was perfect.

HipHopDX: I know that you like to just knock ‘em out and to have somebody equally on that page, that’s when you make your best work.

Zaytoven: Yes, ma’am.

HipHopDX: Do you have a favorite song on Bad Azz Zay?

Zaytoven: I really can’t say because I like ‘em all so much. A lot ‘em got different meanings and different tempos to ‘em. I could say “My Soul” because that’s on that slow piano, him talking real heartfelt, but then I like “Dance and Talk That.” There’s just so many different elements. I never can say one song is my favorite when I do a project.

HipHopDX: I enjoyed hearing it and hearing all the different sides, especially because you as an artist and a brand do represent those different sides, so that’s cool that you and him got to do that together.

Zaytoven: Yeah, that’s what’s up.

HipHopDX: What do you think his rebranding and how he came out the pen and went from Lil Boosie to Boosie Bad Azz? What have you seen from him as he’s become still the same artist, but kind a new artist too?

Zaytoven: When he got out, he was just more a grown man, probably wiser. And he wasn’t as skinny as he was. He had muscle when he came out. So he had to drop the Lil on that. But it’s just amazing to see, a lot times I do deejay shows, sometimes I do college shows where I have to go to Mississippi and Louisiana, those type places. It just goes to show, a guy like Boosie, in certain places, he might not be the hottest, but in other places, it’s like he the king and there’s nobody that can take his spot or can replace who he is. I just remember doing a show and they was like, “Man, if you don’t hurry up and play some Boosie,” I’m finna get booed if I don’t hurry up and play some Boosie. He’s just one the kings the South. He’s like a real living legend. So it’s just amazing. It was a blessing that we got together to do a project together.

HipHopDX: Yeah, in the general rap conversation, he’s not always talked about, but if you know, you know what a legend Boosie is.

Zaytoven: That’s exactly what he is.

HipHopDX: I know “Dangerous Job” was the single, what made you guys pick that as the leading song?

Zaytoven: It wasn’t even really a single, a picked single. “Dangerous Job” was at the time I know NBA Youngboy had just got locked up, Kodak Black had just got locked up, A$AP Rocky he had just got locked up overseas. There was just a lot going on with just artists and rappers and we had did the song prior to any them guys going to jail or anything like that. But I remember Boosie was planning on leaking the song on his Instagram and he would play the song, but it was pictures A$AP Rocky or all the different artists or Nipsey Hussle and just a lot things that was going on with the rap artists. So it was like you know what, this is a perfect time to drop the song and let people know how dangerous it is to be a rapper. So that’s the reason we just dropped the song the way we did.

HipHopDX: Obviously, sound-wise it’s a very lively song, but the message it is very real. As hip-hop has become more mainstream, people maybe forget that hip-hop comes from a dangerous place. Rap is not all fun and games.

Zaytoven: Yeah exactly.

HipHopDX: I know you guys shoutout Nipsey on the song and you had met him, you guys were planning a collab project?

Zaytoven: Me and Nipsey had did like a mentoring program where we got an artist. Me and Nip were mentoring this artist from L.A. Rick Ross and Organized Noize was mentoring another artist and it was kind like a battle. Which one us can put together a song the best with the artist that we were mentoring? So our artist won, me and Nipsey. That was my chance to really meet him and talk to him and just see how cool he was and just feeling his energy was just something special.

So we had talked while we was in the studio like man, we gotta do some music together, since we done linked up and he was like bet, let’s do it. Let’s not even talk about it, let’s just do it. And it wasn’t not even a couple weeks after that that he had passed.

HipHopDX: Yeah, that affected the whole community so heavily.

Zaytoven: Yeah, man.

HipHopDX: Obviously, you’re an OG yourself and you have so much wisdom, but what did you learn from him or what did you pick up because his hustle is so different?

Zaytoven: He’s kinda like me, he’s laid back, he’s a laid back guy. Definitely had, you can tell he had good character, just the way he move and how he acted. It’s always good to just meet people in this industry, somebody as big as he is, to just have that type character, that entrepreneurial spirit. It’s an independency, he’s not a guy that has to rely on anybody else or any labels or anything like that. He’s a self-made boss. So just being around those type guys always influences me.

HipHopDX: You spent his birthday with him, right?

Zaytoven: Man, that’s crazy. I got to spend his last birthday with him. It was a surprise birthday party. We was on set shooting, I was shooting a show The Next Big Thing, but then me and him was doing a commercial for that mentoring program and they threw him a surprise birthday party. So it was a blessing just to be there, just to witness that.

HipHopDX: That’s so special. You’ll have that forever. The Marathon Continues.

Zaytoven: It does.

HipHopDX: I saw on Twitter someone asked about Beast Mode 3, are you and Future always working too?

Zaytoven: Man, me and Future have so much music, we could put out a Beast Mode 10 (laughs). But we always continue to work. That music, Beast Mode is all about timing, when we feel like it’s the right climate. So we always continue to work and do music and timing just tell us when it’s time to put out. The climate the music lets us know, ok it’s time to put out another one, another project.

HipHopDX: Another artist you always work with is Gucci Mane and he had his album this year. He’s always dropping music, but what was special about Delusions Grandeur?

Zaytoven: It’s just the fact that this is the guy that I create chemistry with. This is the guy that I got in the game with, so any time me and him link up, it’s always going to be special. That’s always my number one guy. So any time me and him link up, it’s special and we recorded at his house in Miami, it’s a different vibe. It’s a different vibe.

HipHopDX: The song “Blind” Gucci says he asked you for that East Atlanta Bay shit because you’re from The Bay.

Zaytoven: Yeah, I’m from the Bay Area! That’s the Bay Area. That was the vibe we was on right then. We was just on that vibe. So it’s a song that me and Gucci did back in the day called “Big Cat LaFlare” and it got that Bay Area thing to it. It’s like man, we need to recreate one those. When we go to the Bay Area, that’s they favorite song out there. We just wanted to recreate that sound.

HipHopDX: That’s definitely a fun one. And A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie’s on that.

Zaytoven: Yeah, we called him, we FaceTimed him. After we did the song, we Facetimed him like we need you to get on this song.

HipHopDX: I like him a lot. I feel like he’s definitely a “next up” artist.

Zaytoven: He definitely dope.

HipHopDX: I almost get the A$AP Rocky vibe, just the effortless coolness.

Zaytoven: Yeah yep!

HipHopDX: I know every time I’ve interviewed you, you say how excited you are to work with the upcoming artists. You have these relationships with the legends, but who are some the upcoming artists that you enjoy working with right now?

Zaytoven: Lately, I enjoy working with Gunna, it’s an artist NLE Choppa, been working with him. Juice Wrld, Lil Keed, Lil Gotit, I mean there’s so many them, I don’t even want to start naming them. I’d have to name all them.

HipHopDX: Somebody’s gonna get mad, “You didn’t name me!”

Zaytoven: Yeah! There’s so many ‘em.

HipHopDX: I know it’s a cool thing that you do care about bridging the gap between the generations and staying in the mix with the young kids. Because you don’t have to do that.

Zaytoven: Yeah, that’s what I love to do. That’s what keeps me inspired, the young guys.

HipHopDX: I did want to ask about The Next Big Thing. What did you enjoy about being a part that show?

Zaytoven: The fact that it was so different for me. Just to sit there and be filming every day. It was fresh air for me. I sit in the studio, a producer, all the time. That’s what I’ve been doing ever since I started, so to do something like that it was just fresh air. It’s just something I felt like oh, it’s something new for me to do. I really enjoyed it. I was looking forward to getting on set every day. Then I start getting attached to the artists that was performing and in the competition. So I definitely had a great time doing that. Then, the most amazing part was to come home and sit with my family and watch it on TV every week.

HipHopDX: Was it different for you to put on the judge’s hat? In the studio, it’s more collaborative, but for you what was it like putting on the judge’s hat?

Zaytoven: It’s the same thing. I do the same judging when I’m in the studio. A lot times, I work with new artists and artists that’s not established, so I’m always kind critiquing and telling them what they should do and what I think they need to work on, so it’s pretty much the same hat.

HipHopDX: What’s next for you? I know you’re always working, always doing new things, what’s next right now?

Zaytoven: You know what, that’s the great thing about doing this music is a lot times, I don’t really know what’s next. I’m just working hard, continuing to do what I need to do. Then God always brings up something new that I wasn’t expecting. So that’s what kinda keeps me excited about doing this too.

How The Hilarious War Between Jamaica & Barbados Over Rihanna’s True Nationality Began… Allegedly

Filed by Jenette DanieleJenette Daniele

Rihanna is not Jamaican  — I repeat, she is NOT Jamaican. But, Jamaicans are hilariously trying to make the world believe she is. I mean, I get it… who wouldn’t want to claim the baddest bad gyal of all time? @SherzCapone tweeted out a collage of three Jamaican icons, jokingly including RiRi as the fourth. APPARENTLY, Jamaicans were upset after Bajans made fun of their economy…. so, as might be expected, they stole Rihanna.

“How can one small island produce such talent whew,” he tweeted earlier this week:

Mayhem ensued, as Jamaicans ran with the narrative in an attempt to rewrite everything we ACTUALLY know about Rihanna and her Barbadian origins.

“Jamaicans, you know, if we pretend like Rihanna is Jamaican, the world will believe us, and there is nothing Bajans can do about it. Let’s kidnap Rihanna’s nationality, y’all,” a fan tweeted. Even more funny is the fact that Jamaicans actually made a great case for themselves, albeit fictional.

Rihanna in faux locs…

They created a new birth certificate for the superstar, claiming that she is from Barbados Avenue, Jamaica.

They edited her Wikipedia page. A thorough move, if I do say so myself.

They moved on to her immense love for Jamaica over the years.

And put her on the country’s currency.

It was kind of convincing…

To the point that Bajans had to fight back… QUICKLY.

“We do not tell every tourist where Rihanna’s house is for this,” a Bajan fan quipped. “Where the F*CK are my fellow Bajans???!!!! I NEED BACKUP!!!”

Things got really ruthless, as they threatened to steal Nicki Minaj from Trinidad next.

See more hilarious tweets from this ongoing war below and let us know what you believe.

Blueface Gangbangs On Tekashi 6ix9ine — With A Smile

Filed by Alvera CastaldoAlvera Castaldo

Los Angeles, CA – Blueface is the latest rapper to denounce Tekashi 6ix9ine. TMZ caught up with Cash Money West artist on Thursday (October 10) at the Los Angeles International Airport where he was all smiles as he flexed on the currently incarcerated Brooklynite.

It’s not surprising, however, considering Blueface claims School Yard Crips and 6ix9ine identified with the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.

“Fuck 6ix9ine, School Yard Crip,” he says in the clip. “You come to Cali, I’m gonna have my mans right here lay it down. Crips, street.”

When asked what he thinks about 6ix9ine’s alleged $10 million record contract, he replies, “It record deal] will be a statement. We’ll see if it lasts. I don’t think it will, but you never know in 2019. Man, shit.”

He adds there’s no bouncing back from snitching.

“He started that way – where you get on the internet and say whatever the fuck and get a reaction,” he says. “He started that way. He got hot that way, I guess. I’m coming for all $10 million on School Yard. He don’t get no passes. We don’t do no snitches out here. No pass.”

Blueface was then asked about the label who’s allegedly putting up the money, 10K Projects.

“Shit, them white people don’t care, man,” he says. “They don’t give a damn if he snitched. They don’t live by that. The label, that’s cool for them. That’s more publicity for them.

He adds, “We can rock with it. Anybody in the streets rockin’ with it is not really in the streets. He gonna keep the little white kids though. They probably still gonna fuck with them, but I’m for sure not.”

6ix9ine is expected to be sentenced on December 18. Although he was looking at a minimum 47 years in prison, he could get out as early as the top 2020 due to his cooperation with the feds.

Interview: Dizzy Fae On What Makes The LGBTQ Fanbase So Special

Filed by Yun PinkertonYun Pinkerton

Minneapolis, MN – With so many outlets for people to become stars without help from the proverbial “machine,” younger artists are increasingly taking the post-genre Donald Glover approach to artistic expression.

Dizzy Fae embodies that boundless approach to creation and last week in her home state Minnesota, the “NO GMO” artist teamed up with Red Bull for “Dizzyland, a showcase described as “a melting pot sorts for up-and-coming Queer and POC talent,” which also featured Junglepussy, Suzi Analogue, DJ Keezy, SHYBOI and Stones Throw artist, Sudan Archives.

HipHopDX took a trip out to Minnesota to sit down with the rising star sensation about the ride-or-die LGBTQ fanbase, why Minnesota is one the more slept-on music cities in the U.S. and a particular verse from Snoop himself that continues to inspire her.

HipHopDX: As your buzz continues to grow and we watch Lizzo’s career shoot into the stratosphere would you say Minnesota is slept on as far as a music city?

Dizzy Fae: I definitely feel like Minneapolis is the city that is damn near, if not the most slept on, but the thing is if you talk to anyone they can all feel the energy, that something is creeping up. A lot people will come here, they’ll get their sound and they’ll dip, but the key is we are the sound. I have a lot faith in Minnesota. I’m kinda biased cause I’m from here but I’m not because we’re actually the shit.

HipHopDX: Tonight, among other things is a celebration LGBTQ talent, the fanbase for which seems to be one the more supportive groups an artist could ask for. Has that been your experience?

Dizzy Fae: I’ve noticed once you come into the LGBTQ] community it’s nothing but support. I don’t know whether or not it’s the most supportive but you’re always gonna be supported you know what I’m saying? Once you’re in you’re in. They are gonna know all your words and shout that shit, and they’re gonna fuckin’ be them because they already know how to be themselves. It is a very strong community to be a part .

HipHopDX: Rapping is only one component your sound but who is really influencing you in the Hip Hop sphere?

Dizzy Fae: I think that one the tightest rappers that’s always came clean is Missy Elliott: She’s always been playful, never taken herself too seriously and I enjoy that. I listen to a lot Al Green and more smooth sound spheres. There’s not one person that wholly influences me. It might be something that someone does influences me or sparks something in the way I might do something similar, but there’s no one person as that as a whole I’m just in awe .

HipHopDX: Okay, so if you could pick a specific verse, is there one that comes to mind?

Dizzy Fae: “Who Am I (What’s My Name?)” by Snoop Dogg. Every single time that song comes on, my best friend, McKinley and I are in each other’s eyes the entire time like “From the depths the sea, back to the block/Snoop Doggy Dogg funk like the the the D.O.C. That’s my shit. You can put that on any time and that’s it, it’s a wrap. Snoop’s flow, that shit just hit. I’m just so into the playful, jumpy rap cause I feel like those are the most intelligent people. I’ve noticed, like Tierra Whack, I like how she jumps around and is really playful. There’s a huge intelligence between being a great rapper and being playful and that’s what Missy has done, Busta both them, and their visuals are insane. That’s the type shit that’s gonna keep us progressing in music in my opinion.

I’m also such a big fan Nate Dogg RIP. I fucking love Nate Dogg. I especially love “Just Another Day” and “Bag O’ Weed”]. “I’ll bring the bag O’ weed. You can bring the bottle wine/Call me whenever we can get together and have us a real good time. It’s still morning, I’m still yawning. Outside my window someone’s calling.” I think life is a collaboration so if I like one thing someone does I’m like ‘we could really collaborate.’ It doesn’t take much for me to feel like we can make something beautiful out anything.

HipHopDX: Today there are more options for artists as far as how much they want to do grass roots versus having the label handle their career? You seem to like being more hands-on with your brand.

Dizzy Fae: It’s just something that has been. I’ve been having to just do me period. And wherever I’m Finna go it will be doing me while I’m going there. My music comes first so when I go into the studio it’s more guided and then I base the other stuff around that. I might go into the studio and make ten songs that are completely different from each other and we might just have a mixtape but if I make some that are like “I really like these few” we might have a fucking album. I can only think so far but I’m definitely in the longevity game.

In Friday night’s episode, entitled “Knights Last Forever”, Kumu and Higgins are in danger when Robin’s Nest is under siege by mercenaries storming the estate in order to find out the true identity of the White Knight, Robin’s muse and literary hero. Also, Rick and T.C. helps one of Rick’s employees (played by Deontay Wilder) when his car is stolen, and Higgins finally gives Magnum an answer about if she’ll become his partner.

With so many wonderful things happening for his career right now, it’s amazing that Wilder has time to be a television star too. But in his own words, athletes have done it before, and they still are “to this day!” Check out this behind the scenes clip of Deontay spending another day in paradise on the set of Magnum P.I.

Acting very well may be apart of this guy’s future. Deontay is pretty much good at anything he sets his mind to.
